The Framework within which all the Elements play and exist. This concept is a little tricky, perhaps not for modern Quantum Physicists, or Metaphysicians of the ancient Ægyptian, Anatolian, Sumerian, Tibetan, Indus Valley, Eastern Asian, Kelt, PreKelt, FinnoUgric, and other flavours, but for most of us. The word Pauti comes from the archaic Ægyptian language, and had a large range of meanings, in many cases having to do with the structuring of the Divine Companies and/or the connective tissue or framework of the Cosmos itself, which contained and allowed the Elements to exist and interact in our consensus reality.
Simply put, Pauti is the structure of the MultiVerse and the glue that holds the MultiVerse together. The word Pauti comes from the archaic Ægyptian language and had a large range of meanings. Pauti is the Framework of the Cosmos itself within which all the Elements play and exist and the connective tissue that holds the Framework together; the ancestral body of the land and the tissue that connects all existence. Paut is often translated as Divine Company, while Pauti is the shared characteristics that the company manifests.
According to our understanding, the Pauti (the many of Paut) refers to those characteristics, qualities, or interconnectedness that form, connect, bind, identify, or synthesize into a Paut, a company of Netjeru, a complement of Gods, a host of Heaven, the Limbs of Creation, or a group of deity forms with similar essences. So do the Pauti represent that framework and the living tissue that connects the All.
Thus Pauti contain and allow existence and interaction in a consensus reality. This concept is a little tricky for most of us, but perhaps not for ancient Metaphysicians, historical Egyptologists, or, modern Quantum Physicists.
According to E. A. Wallis Budge, whose seminal work on Egyptian translation has some 19th century biases, paut refers to "primeval matter, the material out of which the gods and the universe were formed" or to "stuff, substance, matter, cakes, or offerings in general" Pauti means "the god of primeval matter, the chief Egyptian god of the Pre-Dynastic Period." However, Budge also discusses the relationship of Pauti with that of the Netjeru, concluding that Pauti represents a conception of deity that is older than that of Netjeru and that the two words must have distinct meanings.
In his translation of the "Book of the Dead", Budge notes that Ptah and Ani are addressing three Netjer as pauti, or "the company of the gods." They each have an animal head: a hare, a serpent, and a bull. The translator may be using Pauti here as the plural of Paut rather than the way we are using it in this essay. We might say, as Budge does, that "the Egyptians distinguished clearly in their minds (this) difference . . . (in) three sets of three (Netjeru were grouped as) companies or coalitions of gods, each of which contains at least three triads . . . " The implication is that each group shared similar functions within their groups' own range of archetypal essence.
Gerald Massey noted that "In the mythological text from Memphis there is an account of Ptah's creation, in which it is said that all the limbs moved (i.e. as parts of the pauti or company of the gods) when he uttered the word of wisdom which came forth from the tongue and worked a blessing upon all things. Speech caused (or literally became) the making of men and the creation of the gods for Ptah. " Thus at the moment of Ptah's creation, the paut or company of the original body of the gods, the limbs of creation, move. The Pauti, the form or embodiment of creation, forms a synthesis between energy and matter. The multitude of Paut in addition to be connected by their own forms of Pauti, are also part of the Pauti of the Cosmos due to their intrinsic natures, this further complicates the use of the word Pauti.
Modern student of ancient Egypt, Rosemary Clark, noted that the Netjeru were believed to have emerged out of a primeval substance called the Pauti, the "many of the Paut." Interpreting Clark, Robert Berringer beautifully captures the essence of Netjeru, "Netjeru . . . means spiritual force or power. The Netjeru, in particular, distinguish consciously living matter from the unconscious in the cosmologies of Egypt; whatever the period of time or place of origin, the Netjeru were believed to have emerged out of a primeval substance called the Pauti, the "many of the Paut." This original matter of which the Netjeru are entirely composed is wholly conscious and is found to some degree in the physical world and human beings. Outside of the physical world, the Netjeru exists in an ideal condition, without form or impetus, a state akin to timeless perfection. But in spite of this existence in the divine regions, they require the fulfillment of their energetic nature through human life and its endeavors . . . .the purpose of divine life is to reveal itself or 'unfold' in the natural world through time and space.
"Connections answer wider questions than do separations. Similarities are more important to growth than are differences. All say blood is thicker than water or wine. The places where we touch create all we know and value. Thus do Netjeru manifest yet retain essence of Familial Form. Like family ties, all share in the Paut of primal Being, forming a framework of existence from connections in living tissue, binding immortality into companionable Beings."
"Seek the living tissue of connections. Strive to share in blood and DNA; in archetypes and symbols; in joy and experience."
