Descrizione

Which is right? Resurrection or Reincarnation? Religion and spirituality entirely depend on which one is real. If reincarnation is true, all religions based on resurrection are false, and vice versa.

Resurrection and reincarnation have drastically different ontologies and epistemologies. The ultimate answer to existence is dependent on whether souls reincarnate or experience resurrection.

Don’t you want the knowledge that will dictate the fate of your soul? Then come and get it. The first stop is the incredible world of ancient Egyptian religion.

Introduction

In reincarnation, the soul is a free agent that can link to one physical body after another. In resurrection, the soul is perpetually bound to one particular body. So, which is it? Is the soul mobile or fixed?

Soul theory begins in earnest in ancient Egypt. Glimpses of both resurrection and reincarnation are present in Egyptian theology, but with a greater emphasis on resurrection.

When the Greeks were confronted by Egyptian ideas, they modified them to make them much more consistent with reincarnation.

The Jews, followed by the Christians, chose to emphasize resurrection.

Here we trace the origins of resurrection theory and reincarnation theory. Where do you stand? Which system do you support?

Ka and Ba

Ka and Ba are the two components of the Egyptian soul with which people are most familiar, but they are not well-defined terms. The best way to understand them is perhaps in the context of their temporal relationship.

Wikipedia says, "The ancient Egyptians believed that life in the mortal world was short in comparison to eternity in the afterlife. They, therefore, had two concepts of time for ‘the eternal cycle of life of earth’ (neheh) and ‘life in the eternity of the kingdom of the dead’ (djet). ‘Neheh’ means a period of time in which something exists, renews and repeats. ‘Djet’ refers to the future in which earthly life will have ended and everything accomplished in life lives for an indefinite amount of time in Duat [the realm of the dead].

The sun god Ra was the manifestation of the time called ‘neheh’, as Ra ‘renewed himself every night’ and ‘was reborn’ with the dawn of every day by the sun goddess Nut. Contrary to this, Osiris, as the god of the dead, was the synonym for the time called ‘djet’. Osiris’, whose appearance was as a mummy, also carried the name of; ‘the one who continues to be perfect.’ In this respect, neheh, the time of Ra, is the rebirth, and djet, the time of Osiris, is the remembrance.

In these terms, the ba soul is the neheh soul, the Ra soul, that functions in the daily cycle of things, while the ka soul is the djet soul, the Osiris soul, that functions in non-cyclical eternity. So, the Egyptians had two ideas of time: neheh, which concerns circular time and is associated with life; and djet, which concerns linear time and is concerned with death and the afterlife. The two types of time have a close relationship, reflected in the relationship between Ra (neheh) and Osiris (djet). Neheh, as part of its cycle, has to intersect with djet, where it is recharged, ready to resume the living part of its cycle. (It is in the dead part of its cycle when it overlaps with djet.) Neheh is in a sense powered by djet. Thus the ba soul is powered by the ka soul.

Ra is the ba soul of Osiris and Osiris the ka soul of Ra. Ra does his own thing during the day, then returns to his ka (Osiris) at night.

When Egyptians said you were going to your ka, they meant you were going to your death … going to your Osiris self.
