Pictographic Letter F ©
The upright staff of the scales of justice represents a dead person who is watching his or her heart being weighed against the feather of truth on a balance beam suspended from a fatal arrow piercing the persons heart. That's fate!
Assur was the judge of the dead.
In the Judgment Scene, the heart of the deceased is weighed on the scales of justice in balance against the feather of truth. If the heart of the deceased was as "light as a feather" and not weighted down with the "sins" of a wicked life, that person was allowed into heaven. The balance beam of the scale is also suspended from a feather of truth.
According to the Pagan foundation legend, Assur was the first king of the first kingdom on earth. The evil god Seth and a company of conspirators murdered Assur. They hacked his body into pieces and scattered his severed parts. Isis collected the scattered parts of Assur, put them together, and resurrected Assur from the dead. She copulated with her resurrected king. From that union she conceived and begat their son, Heru. Heru went on to become the progenitor of the Pharaohs. Isis went on to become the Earth Mother Goddess (i.e. the Pagans' Eve). Assur went on to become King of Heaven, King of Hell, and Judge of the Dead.
The resurrection of Assur was an allegorical tale. Isis didn't really reconstruct a man from parts and resurrect him from the dead. Nevertheless, later generations of Egyptians apparently believed in the literal truth of it. The Egyptian belief in a final judgment and life after death was founded on the resurrection of Assur. The entire Egyptian government, religion, royal genealogy, and construction of the pyramids were all founded on the resurrection of Assur. The Christian belief in the resurrection of Jesus, a final judgment, and life after death is founded on the resurrection of Assur, not on Judaism.
The Maat feather, "feather of truth," is the feather from the shaft of an arrow. The feather on the shaft of the arrow causes the arrow to fly true.
The minuscule letter f is a picture of a feather.
The minuscule letter f is a picture of a feather. It looks like the "feather of truth" from the scales of justice. The "feather of truth" is the feather from the shaft of an arrow. The feather on the shaft of the arrow causes the arrow to fly true. The sound of f is derived from the sound of an arrow f_f_f_flying through the air.
The Goddess Maat was the goddess of truth and justice.
Maat was Thoth's wife. She was the goddess of truth and justice. Maat's name is the Egyptian word for truth. Maat's name is the name of the truth feather. Maat's law was "the law that has never been broken." Math is the law that has never been broken. Our word math is derived from Maat's name.
Maat, the goddess of truth and justice, is surely the original motif for the Roman "Lady of Justice" and through stages of evolution, Maat is the ancestress of American "Liberty."
Resurrect Isis, the goddess of love. A 'World Culture' of some kind is our fate. Let it be founded on love instead of hate.
