From previous reasonings a while ago, I premised that it all originates from MALE supremacy...the male feeling left out of the mother-child mix...in other words inadequacy compensation complex.
It would appear that this holds more plausibility in the afrikan hebrew/semitic culture than in afrikan or european pagan/indigenous cultures.
The elimination/suppression of the feminine seems to always have a bearing on these implementations.
Although greeks and romans had female deities in their pantheon mix, they still had a singular male as supreme. This can also be said about later Kemetic culture.
No mystery there neither...empire...dominance...rulings...male pinnacle...supreme god (Ra).
However in earlier Kemetic culture there was more BALANCE in the pantheonic arrangement more so than supreme deity.
Ausar - Auset - Heru was nothing more than the father-mother-child overstanding of life and its cyclical continuation.
Again, it points the finger at hierarchy whereas hierarchy establishes a supreme pinnacle, be it substance, human or deity. This assignment of something as supreme and something as negative seems to always be the 'smoking gun'.
That and a 'linearization' of worldviews particularly concerning "death" as an end rather than a transition point.
Just curious, what are the Semitic Big 3's views on death?
