Pat, 'kneeling' is perhaps the wrong description and 'squatting' would be more appropriate. Either way it isn’t a normal ‘squat.’ I should also point out, these squatting deities are never shown with arms, yet another unusual and abnormal trait which I believe is consistent with the image in the NASA Photo.
"My first impression of the "gathering" is that they are all seated and listening as at a speech or ritual of some sort. Perhaps the Pharoah is presenting his "case" for immortality before the judges?"
I would totally agree with this, in that, to attain a life of immortality among the stars (to become a star or Akh) the deceased would have to pass through and be ‘judged’ by earth’s spokes, or so the Egyptians believed - assisted of course by Osiris.
