Beliefs

The peoples of ancient Tamary believed in a Creator Supreme, without name, form, shape, size, or even a gender. A superior force that created the skies, planets, seas, heavens, hu-mans, animals, beasts, birds, creeping things, and all that is in existence (seen and unseen) and all that will be...

The peoples of ancient Tamary (consisting of the lands of Mizraim and Kham named after Noah's son, known as Egypt today), and Kush and Nubia (better known as Sudan today) called this superior one we call God today, as "Re." The name "Re" means "light." The ancient peoples called upon the divinity of oneness as "Atum-Re," meaning "supreme light." "Atum" means the "beginning" or the "source," and also means "the end," thus, means the "beginning and end of all light," as in the Alpha and Omega of all life in the Book of Revelations.

Another popularly invoked name for God was "Amen-Re." Amen means "hidden" or "invisible," thus the hidden light was called upon by the peoples of ancient Tamary, in search of the light from without or from within in their daily lives.

The first Papyrus Chronicles of Creation according to the beliefs of the peoples of Tamary, lied in the story that in the beginning of time according to the Old Kingdom pyramid texts which is similar to the Creation story in the book of Genesis in the Bible. Atum materialised or came into existence from Nu (the dark and mysterious waters of chaos, on top of the primeval mass of earth) where the first world was created. According to the priests of Yunu (Heliopolis), there were nine great cosmic guardians, and that Atum-Re was creator of the assigned nine supreme light-bearers of planet Earth.

In the second Papyrus Chronicles of Creation the primordial deities were known as the Ogdoad (meaning eight in Greek) originating in Khemnu (meaning eight in the Tamaryan tongue), better known as Hermopolis (the city of Hermes in Greek), which was the cult centre of Djehuty (Thoth) a direct offspring of Amen and Amunet. The priests of Hermopolis affirmed that the Ogdoad had brought into existence the sun, which explains why their offspring were known as "Children of the Sun."

Nu was an ocean where the "Cosmic Egg" (life-forms in their original womb-like state) of all living entities were created, the first out of the element of water were the four divine couples Amen and Amunet (hidden life force), Nun and Nunet (water), Huh and Huhet (infinity), Kuk and Kuket (darkness). The force of the divine primordial couples mating together, released a potent ignition rippling throughout the primeval waters of the planet Earth, thus, bringing into existence land. As a result of this potent ignition the "Island of the element fire," was created, better known as the Isle of Flame.

However, both the first and second Papyrus Chronicle texts of Creation have one thing in common with regards to their Amen-Re and Atum-Re counterparts, which is that, both were an invisible and self-created being, but in the Papyrus Chronicles of Creation based in the temple of Men-Nefer (Memphis), Ptah was the creator. According to cult priests of Memphis, he was accountable for the whole of creation, and was attributed with the male and female aspects of Nu (primordial waters of chaos) as Ptah-Nun and Ptah-Nunet, and was referred to as "the father who bore Atum, the mother who bore Atum." He created the world by means of uttering the names of all living creatures including divine beings into existence through the power of his heart and mind. After uttering names and forms of his heart and mind, he then fashioned them into an actuality into the physical realm from the astral world of forms. Just like the creative power of the word of God in the Bible.
