The mysteries of Hermes teach us what faith means. The test of fire is faith, the realization of what is expected. The moth flies fearlessly towards the fire, flies to death, flies to a dead end, but knows that by showing care, it will be saved, and at the last second everything will be fine. The test of water is faith, as the certainty of the unseen. You dive into the black, opaque water and swim through the tunnel, hoping that there is a passage there and you will not drown.
The more moral a society is, the longer it lasts. Ancient Egyptian civilization lasted 4 thousand years, more than anyone else at times. The society of ancient Egypt was very moral, they had as many as 42 sins.
The Egyptians also had a Trinity, the meaning of which was the integrity of one in three persons. OMON RA and Ptah, where Riot police – invisible spirit and RA – his physical repose of the sun, and Ptah is his representation on earth in human form – master's.
The construction of tombs was the economic foundation of ancient Egyptian society, which created jobs, prevented the crisis of overproduction and allowed money to be effectively redistributed in society.
Indeed, human civilization was created by the gods. The first human communities arose out of fear of the gods and death to serve the gods and build them temples and places of worship. The construction of religious buildings and tombs requires the concentration of thousands of people and it is religious ideas that have created large collectives and communities. The more sacrifices to the gods, the better we will live - people thought. And the more they came together in large and organized groups, the greater the sacrifices they could make and the greater the places of worship they could build. For example, tombs, dolmens and Egyptian pyramids are sacrifices to the gods.
The essence of the idols of Easter island is the same as the dolmens and the Egyptian pyramids. They gave people the meaning of life, overcame the crisis of overproduction, symbolized ritual and distracted people from killing.
