The Egyptian story of the Mammemmet beings" is from the Herut 
reptile, another name for the great serpent Apap (Apep) (Hydra is the 
astrological great Snake whose head is directly under the feet of the 
Virgin as she holds the Christ child in her arms, ready to devour him 
if she should let him fall).  The Hememmet beings, or innocents, 
rejoice later that the serpent Apep has not eaten their eggs from the

representations of the sevenfold power that builds the forms in which 
life is embodied.  Made up of six elemental forces and taken as seven 
when synthesized by the seventh.

magnified powers of "evil" are nothing other than the traits and

the interests of the soul and there is warefare, which, however is to 
end in amity.

its (Easter) delivery.  Humanity is mother to deity.  The coming of 
Christ is to be thought of as the gradual growth of an element or 
faculty of consciousness, and as taking place over the whole of the 
human aeon.  He comes during the whole continuance of the cycle, a 
little at a time, a little each day, each year, each incarnation.  He 
is not yet born in our hearts for he is only in gestation in our 
bodies.  His birth will occur when he is delivered from the flesh in 
his last confinement.  That still small voice that is being drowned 
out by the raucous din of earthly distraction.  To heed that voice 
will advance its position in the order of being.  C.J.Jung said "if 
God is a mighty activity within my soul, at once I must concern 
myself with him".
