Helipolitan theology rested on a creation-myth distinguished by a number of unique and curious features.

It taught that in the beginning the universe had been filled with a dark watery nothingness, called the Nun.
Out of this inert cosmic ocean (describedas 'shapeless, black with the blackness of the blackest night') rose
a mound of dry land on which
Ra , the Sun God, materialized in his self created form as

Atum (sometimes depicted as an old bearded man resting on a staff ): " note 5

The sky had not been created, the earth had not been created, the children of the earth and the reptiles had

not been fashioned in that place...I Atum, was one by myself...There existed no other who worked with me" ... note 6

"..."You are the former steward of the great courtier Petepre? " he asked.

      "I am he answered Joseph in all simplicity."

"... There was an implication that question and answer did not quite match, that the answer overlapped the question and might tempt the questioner to another question: "What are you ? " or even "Who are you? " over and above that.
       The truth is, Joseph's answer was a formula, old, familiar, and widely appealing from ages past. It was the time- honoured revela-tion of identity, a ritual statement beloved in song and story and play in which the gods had parts. In such a play it is used in order to string together a whole gamut of effects and plot sequences, from mere casting down of the eyes to being thundered at and flung to one's knees.
"..."Yes, yes, so you are,"said he. Possibly at the moment he did not know himself just what he meant by that; and if so the fact that this man before him was the handsomest twenty-seven-year-older in the two lands may have contributed to his absence of mind. Beauty is impressive. Unfailingly it stirs a special kind of trepidation even in the most placid soul from whom fear in general is remote. A sim-ple "I am he" uttered with a sober smile might be magnified by the beauty of the speaker into something unearthly."

"...Now Isis, the Great One of the island, Eset, a millionfold fertile in guile, felt that her moment was come. Her wisdom embraced heaven and earth, like that of the old superannuated old Re himself. But there was one thing she did not know or command, and the lack of it  /
Page 889  / hampered her: she did not know the last, most secret name of Re, his very final one, knowledge of which would give power over him. Re had very many names, each one more secret than the one before, yet not utterly hopeless to find out, save one, the very last and might-iest. That he still witheld; whoso could make him name it, he could compel him and outdistance him and put him under his feet.
     Therefore Eset conceived and devised a serpent, which should sting Re in his golden flesh.

Simple enough mistake to write servant writ the scribe

Then the intolerable pain of the sting, which only great Eset could cure who made the worm, would force Re to tell her his name. Now as she contrived it so was it fulfilled. The old Re was stung, and in torments was forced to come out with one of his secret names after another, always hoping that the goddess would be satisfied before they got to the last one. But she kept on to the uttermost, until he had named her the most secret of all, and the power of her knowledge over him was absolute. After that it cost her nothing to heal his wound; but he only got a little better, within the wretched limits in which so old a creature can; and soon thereafter he gave up and joined the great majority.

The Nine Billion names of God

'Call it ritual, if you like, but it's a fundamental part of our belief. All the many names of
the Supreme Being - God , Jehova , Allah , and so on - they are only man made labels. There is a philosophical problem of some difficulty here, which I do not propose to discuss, but somewhere among all the possible
combinations of letters that can occur are whatone may cal the real names of God. By systematic per-mutation of
letters, we have been trying to list them all'

"...Yet nothing in time - nothing even in infinite time - is eternal; nothing outside of the One Absolute Noumenon.
In the Hindu cosmogony it is taught that even Brahman is not eternal. Brahman himself must be absorbed in the
Absolute (Parabrahm),When the great cosmic cycle or Mahamanvantura has run its course. We have already seen that the same teaching is to be found in the Chris-tian Scriptures, in the idea that the "Son" himself is finally "subject to him that did subject all things unto him, that God may be all in all."
   We find, then, by correspondence and analogy, and proceed-ing from universals to particulars, that the whole cosmic process, considered as phenomenon, is the field of experience of the One Self; that the whole evolutionary cycle of Man -
Of which the mere physical history of this globe is only a very small portion - is the field of experience of some individual
Cosmic Being, which has been termed the Divine son or Logos; and that the various physical personalities and individual lives which 'we' live down here, are part of a certain larger cycle of evolution through the individual Ego has to pass."

"...The author of the Rashahat reports that Ubaidallah Ahrar once said to him: "The sum of all the various sciences is revelation,the acts of Muhammad and the law. The sum of all these is the science of Sufism. The sum of Sufism is the assertion of Presence. They say that at all levels, there is only one presence; but that this is perceived according to each person's own capacity. This statement is very hard and subtle. To grasp it, reason, imagination and thought must be brought to bear. Those possess the required intelligence who are able to take their own reality as a mirror and search for the signs that will reveal it. To this they must devote themselves entirely. In The light of the presence, the subtle elements of the reality will little by little reveal themselves. Those who have become aware of the mystery of destiny are at peace. For they know that the visible universe is completely void and non-existent. They know also that the Supreme Reality is manifested in every light and shade of this cosmic illusion. Their peace resembles that of the waves re-absorbed into the ocean.

The Demiurge"

Page 25  

"In this book ask the reader to look at life on this earth and at human life in particular, from the standpoint of a very high intelligence engaged in an almost impossible enterprise. The task is to bring into existence beings capable of providing the earth with a soul, by achieving such a degree of mutual love and such wisdom as to be able to act as one and yet retain their individual freedom. Mankind today represents an early stage in the accomplishment of this task.
      The very high intelligence I am postulating is neither human nor divine. It is neither perfect nor infallible, but its vision and its powers far transcend those of the wisest of mankind. I shall call it the Demiurge, from the word used in Athens to designate 'worker for the people', the artisan or craftsman who provided the demos, citizens of Athens, with the instruments of well- being and culture. The word was taken over much later by Aristotle to stand for the Great Artificer, the power that creates and maintains life on earth. In Aristotle's day, the earth was the most important component of the world. The sun, moon and stars were luminaries that existed to provide the earth with day and night. Even the gods lived on or near enough to the earth to visit it when it suited them to do so. It was natural to think of the Great Artficer as the prime mover, the transendental source from which all existence flows.
     Very great changes have come in our world picture in two thousand three hundred years. Copernicus and Galileo made us see the earth as a minor planet in the solar system. Modern  

/  Page 26   /  

astronomy tells us to look on the sun as but one star in a hundred billion that form our galaxy and our galaxy as but one in countless millions of galaxies stretching further than our imagination can reach. We are bound to think quite differently of an intelligence that governs our earth than of one - if there be such - that rules the universe. By keeping the word Demiurge for the postulated spirit of the earth, we can put aside, as beyond our grasp, the idea of a deity that created and rules the entire universe. In doing this, we should breathe a sigh of relief and thankfulness. The earth is our home and its destiny should be our main concern
     We must remember that the conception of an absolute God was foreign to all ancient peoples. Jahweh was the greatest God, but limited both in His powers and his concerns. So was Ahura Mazda. The Buddha accepted the existence of gods but regarded them as limited and by no means omnipotent. The early Christians kept to the Jewish notion of a limited God."  
"...If we accept the notion of a limited God we are bound to admit the notion of a limitless Source "beyond God.
"... When I became convinced that there is a great and benevolent but limited intelligence working behind the scenes of this world, and also saw that man cannot exist only for his own benefit but must have been created to serve some higher purpose, I experienced an enormous relief. Life could be full of meaning and I could play a useful, even a necessary, part of it - just because everything is not controlled by the overwhelming power of an almighty God.
   The picture shown to us by the history of the earth is that of a slow but accelerating transformation from lifelessness to life,
From primitive sensation to a developed consciousness. The transformation has gone forward uncertainly and even precariously, but the result is already a marvel. We see the amazing adaptation of life to the nature of the planet; of one form of life to another. We see the utmost ingenuity of construction, we see beauty and we can see the play of a vast cosmic spirit. If all this came into existence blindly by the working of mechanical laws and accidental combinations, it is a double marvel.
If we look at it as an achievment of a great intelligence, we must be ready to bow before it and aknowledge that it is incomparably greater than ours.
    When we look at the solar system we see a closely knit family of sun, planets, satellites, asteroids, comets and fields of force. We know that life on earth depends upon the heat, light and other radiation it receives from the sun. Scientists agree that the sun's radiation must have played a decisive part in the first appearance of life on this planet. I want to go further, and ask you to think in terms of the sun as a higher intelligence, as the creative power that acts throughout the solar system. We can look upon it as the Creator and Father of all life, including our own. Compared with the Sun, the Demiurge occupies a subordinate position."
Alizzed saw knot subordinates to the whole.
" It does not itself create life, but has undertaken the task of nursing it and guiding it towards the moment when it can become responsible for itself. There is nothing that should astonish us in the thought of an intelligence behind nature. Biologists, who would reject any suggestion of a divine creator, find themselves talking and writing on Nature as if she were an intelligent being. You can scarcely open a book or read a paper about the evolution of life without finding passages in which the author personifies Nature. If questioned, he would assure us that this is only a figure of speech and is not to be taken literally. Sometimes, however, our speech betrays us; we say truer things than we intend. As we come to know more and more about life, we shall certainly come to the conclusion that there is an intelligence behind it all. It would be wrong to look at this intelligence as life itself and we should therefore separate Nature from the Demiurge.
Aziz the tha in That, said Zed Aliz,
And so the scribe writ that, that, the Aliz Zed said that.     "The Sun was the creator of the eternal pattern of life. Through life soul could appear and the Earth itself be transformed into a divine being and become the bride of the sun. The Earth as pure intelligence without mind and without a living body could accept the Sun's intention but could not bring it into the existing world. This task was therefore allotted to the Demiurge whom we may discern in the creation myths of many cultures. I am asking the reader to look at it as history. Myth and history are twins: they represent the ideal and the actual faces of the same  

/ Page 28

reality. The difference is nevertheless important, for history connects us with past and future, whereas myth belongs to the eternal present."
One two suckle my , who! Three four open the drawer. Thus writ the scribe during a brief  intermission.
"...We have four concepts. The first is that of an absolute Unfathomable Source from which the whole existing universe proceeds. We must postulate such a source because we have separated the solar system, as our own proper subject of study, from the universe in which it is so minute and, apparently, insignificant. By making this seperation, we have to look at the solar system as a unit complete in itself with its own presiding intelligence, the Sun, whom we may think of as God, Creator and Father of life on the Earth, and ruler of the solar system. If you reflect deeply, you will see that it is possible for us to form the conception of a supreme being, upon whom every living creature depends, while remaining within the limits of the solar system.
     When we come to this earth, we have nature - sometimes referred to as Great Nature, Vernadsky called the film of life that covers the earth "biosphere" and he and many other scientists have been ready to regard the biosphere as a unit that is a being.  
     The fourth conception is that of the Demiurgic intelligence that stands between the creative power of the Sun and the slowly evolving nature on the planet.* I must,  before going further, try to bring the picture of the Demiurge into better focus.
      We come here against an unexpected problem: I have written of the Demiurge in the singular but we shall find it necessary to think also Demiurgic intelligences in the plural and even to say that the Demiurgic intelligence can enter into the human individual. Because orthodox logical thinking is atomic and we tend to look upon a number as having an absolute quality, we  /
*Editors note. Bennett, in fact uses in addition a fifth concept, which is that of the Cosmic reconciling, or God as Love. Love comes from beyond the limits of the creativity of the sun. Love is inherant in life and it is from within life that Love can operate. In a very true sense, then, Nature is sacred. Just as our first experience of love is from our mother so mankind's first experience of Love came through the love that Nature, his mother, has.  
Love, live long, said Zed Aliz. Long live love life over, writ the scribe.
Page 29   /  

find it unreasonable to suppose that anything can be one and many at the same time. We can admit, for example, that the human body is one whole but also that it is manifold, consisting of limbs, organs, systems and parts large and small. This relationship of whole and parts large and small. This relationship of whole and part is easy to accept. The difficulty comes when we want to speak of one and many, without the many being subordinated to the one, or the one regarded as the sum of its parts."

Alizzed made a "sum of its parts"

Diagnosis Of Man
Kenneth Walker 1943

Page 20  

"Man may be looked upon as being an organized family made up of myriads of cells, a family so cleverly integrated that it appears to have a unity. Nevertheless, in Sir Charles Sherrington's words:           Each of its constituent cells is a life centred in itself, managing itself feeding and breathing for itself,
       separately born and destined separately to die. Further, it is a life helped by, and in its turn helping,        the whole assembly, which latter is the corporate individual.
But before dealing with the corporate individual, let us return to the consideration of the cell. Each cell can be pictured as being a well-organized and self-contained factory, so constituted that it can carry on numerous chemical processes. It is an entirely self-sufficient factory which takes from the outside world the raw materials that it requires for its work, and gets rid of the by-products that it can no longer use. This factory can hydrolyse, oxydize, pull to pieces and build up, according to its needs: it can even manufacture its own special proteins from the proteins that it has absorbed from without.
     An examination from a cell under the microscope shows that it is a mass  

/ Page 21  /

of jelly surrounded by a containing membrane. By appropriate staining further detail of its structure may be revealed, of which the most important is a small complicated area somewhere near its centre, which takes up the dye more strongly, and is known as the nucleus. This is the organizer of the cell's industry, the most vital structure in its mass. It is the heart and brain of the cell's existence, and the very centre of its being."
Cells are so self centred writ  the scribe
"...A far better method of examination is to view the cell in its living state, under what is known as the 'dark ground illumination microscope' This allows us to see the cell's ceasless activity, so that it appears not as a static, but as a dynamic system. Cells can now be filmed and magnified to such an extent that when thrown on to the cinematograph screen they appear as large as a man, and all their organs are rendered visible. In the middle floats the nucleus, an ovoid elastic-walled balloon con-taining two smaller bodies, the nucleoli, which slowly and unceasingly change their shapes. And in the whole of the cell there is a ceasless streaming hither and thither of granules, which zigzag through its substance and penetrate the transitory arms, or pseudopodia, that the cell projects from its surface.    Cells, like animals, belong to various species, which differ from each other both in structure and in function. Those that make up the human

body may be subdivided into two main groups, the fixed cells out of which the tissues and organs are built, and the wandering cells that may travel throughout the body's whole length."
"...The cell that is most easy to grow is the primitive cell of the connective tissue, but it has also been found possible to cultivate more specialized cells from muscles and nerves, and even from such organs as the kidney. In such cases the cells lose their highly specialized character. No longer dedicated to the performance of special duties, they become free individuals , and revert to a humbler and more generalized type.
    The characteristics which are used to distinguish one cell from another are their mode of locomotion, their manner of associating with each other, their rate of growth, their response to different chemicals, the food they require, the substances they secrete,and their shape and internal structure.
