These two great ideas being splendid stars seen by all free peoples today. The Egyptians embodied themselves in a unique figure: the Truth - Justice (hieroglyphics) Maat, daughter of Sun-Ra. And here the protestations of an Egyptian peasant/farmer are addressed 2000 years before our era, to his Pharaoh...Speak the Truth, carry out Justice, for Maat is great, she is powerful, she is eternal...and if you observe this, she will steer you to beatitude..."
