mounds - The burial of the dead for ENKI / PTAH / LOKI
vikings buried their dead in viking burial mounds:
many other civilisations such as the ancient Dilmuns who were an
ancient people who lived in a country called Bahrain in the middle-east.
reason they did this, has to do with the gods they worshipped, you see
many ancient people worshipped gods of the underworld and like with
many of these ancient gods of the dead, they were considered creator
gods aswell, for example the sumerian god Enki is accredited with
creating mankind. In ancient egyptian mythology it was Ptah who called
the world into being, having dreamt of creation and speaking it.
viking equivalent of Enki was Loki. The modern day example of Enki or
Loki is saint Peter. More importantly the ancient Egyptian equivalent
of Enki, Loki or Peter was Ptah.
who was more literally referred to as Ta-tenen meaning risen land, or
as Tanen, meaning submerged land, though Ta-tenen was a god in his own
right, he became assimilated with Ptah. Later on the god Ptah was
assimilated with the god seker to become Ptah-Seker.
interesting is that the Mayans used to bury some of their dead in
submerged caves with water. Whats also interesting is that many of the
ancients such as the Viking and ancient Bahrainis and many other
civilisations buried their dead in burial mounds, so the god Ptah is
the missing piece of the puzzle because hes called Ta-tenen and Tanen.
thats why the ancients buried their dead in that fashion, in honour of
their underworld god.
became considered an underworld deity, and eventually, by the Middle
Kingdom, became assimilated by Osiris, the lord of the underworld and
occasionally became known as Ptah-Seker-Osiris Even though Osiris and
P'tah are totally different gods.
story of the primordial
mound in ancient egyptian mythology is very similar to Pangea, where
all the continents were stuck together and in my opinion the story of
the risen mound comes fron this.
