Readers of this book will learn that in the 'Golden Age' of ancient Egypt human consciousness was quite different from our mainly mentally dominated consciousness; it was turned towards the inner movements of the soul. What our ancestors thus perceived and 'saw', they expressed in images, in symbols. The author is convinced that rather than taking the Egyptian hieroglyphs and images at their face value, the deeper meaning behind should be explored. In place of a pantheon of primitive Gods and strange figures with animal heads he perceives a multiplicity of soul-powers representing inner movements of consciousness, aspects of ourselves, as well as universal principles. Symbols are like mirrors of ourselves reflecting our multifacetted reality.
