what i had learned today #2

so a friend of mine who will remain nameless instigated a learning spree today on the twidder, KNOWING that my attention deficit disorder in combination with my thirst, yeah i said it-- THIRST for knowledge would take me over the edge. & so here is what i had learned today on the topic of egyptian mythology & whatnot.
*in a series of tweets to said instigator & all who follow the kid. in the order in which they occurred. 

"thoth was often considered to be the heart & tongue of the sun god, ra." poets are the heart & tongue of the Son/God, Yah.

he was also scribe of the gods. #expletives. you make me learn kid. stop lol

ohhh myyyy geeez. & his wife is the concept of truth. efff.

"others say that Thoth created himself through the power of language." so... he SPOKE himself into existence... cool. #imHooked

"He is also the great counselor and the other gods frequently went to him for advice." #Thoth

"his totem animal is the baboon, a nocturnal animal that goes to sleep only after greeting the new day." #Thoth

"He was considered the heart and tongue of Ra as well as the means by which Ra's will was translated into speech." #Thoth

"He, too, was a measurer and [[recorder of time]], as was Seshat."#Thoth

all forms of writing + the measurement of time... that's what dude was responsible for. that's fuggin epic dawg. #Thoth

"After Isis gathered together the pieces of Osiris' dismembered body, he gave her the words to resurrect him so she could be impregnated...
"... and bring forth Horus." #Thoth

"Similar to God speaking the words to create the heavens and Earth in Judeo-Christian mythology, Thoth, being the god who always speaks...
"the words that fulfill the wishes of Ra, spoke the words that created the heavens and Earth in Egyptian mythology." #Thoth

"Thoth... was also considered to have been the scribe of the underworld..." ... a writer's life is a dark one. #kanyeshrug

the name thoth means "thought" & "time"


needless to say, i'm really feelin this dude here. i'll probably expound & whatnot later.
