After the unification of Egypt, the crown of subsequent pharaohs consisted of the depiction of two deities whom – despite their physical differences and their representation of two separate, yet united regions – were always worshipped individually, as well as together. Contrary to most other freewheeling, shapeshifting gods of the time, the Two Ladies remained distinct from one another, and still managed to rule together in sustained peace. That’s quite the achievement!
Just think about it… I think we need some new deities to help us heal ourselves and this polarized, fractured world. Maybe we should engage the Two Ladies to come to our rescue? You know, build bridges over gaps, stitch together our torn and frayed ethnic and cultural fabrics, and make us celebrate our universal sameness instead of our differences. Then, after all the crazy has been dialed back, and the appropriate time-outs have been doled out – then they could lead our motley masses into a future where the focus is on facts, fairness, and fearlessness. Now, wouldn’t THAT be nice?
