2. Every system of magic is a single artists tool, used to reshape reality.

6. Be like all equally, and you shall unite; refuse and separate.

Footnotes

242:1 Plutarch seems to have erred here. The early texts call the pupil of the eye "the child in the eye," as did the Semitic peoples (see my Liturgy of Funerary Offerings, p. 136). The Copts spoke of the "black of the eye," derived from the hieroglyphic "darkness," "blackness."

242:2 There is no support for this view in the texts.

242:3 It was a very common belief in Egypt that all things arose from the great celestial ocean called Nu, whence came the Nile.

242:4 Plutarch refers to the vessel of water, with which the priest sprinkles the ground to purify it.

242:5 He seems to refer here to the olive-tree: Beqet, "olive land," was one of the names of Egypt.
