Quoth the Sha:


Kith Excerpt:

In the Heliopolis cosmology, there were five parts that made up an individual, the heart (Jb), the name (Ren), the intellect (Akh), the spark (Ba), and the shadow, or sillohuette. This aspect was known as the Sheut, the šwt, or the Sha.

Because the Dreaming of Heliopolis is no more, however, many a dream of great Pharaohs, priests, and kings along the Nile have been forgotten. Yet their shadows linger on, dreaming spirits who have recollections of great cities of gold under the sun. These spirits may remember the cities yet forget their own names. Forever searching for these missing pieces, the Sha float from identity to identity. Upon their chrysalis, they begin a search for the other four parts that would complete their distinctiveness. Egypt is not a good place to find dreams though, and the Sha’s search is usually a futile one.

What remains of the Great souls of kings past are broken shadowy things, never satisfied, and always flitting from person to person in hopes of discovering a name of their own. Although rumors persist of the Amenti, the mummies of old still living and dying over and over again in the name of Heru-Re. These Mummies, if they exist at all, might be able to reattach aspects of a Sha to the souls from which they originally hailed.



“I thought if I could touch this place or feel it this brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here it’s like I’m someone else, I thought that maybe I could find myself if I could just come in I swear I’ll leave. Won’t take nothing but a memory from the house that built me.”
― Miranda Lambert, “Miranda Lambert: Revolution”
