The Flesh of Re, by Robert Anderson Plimer

Published by Courtyard Publishing IOW

Hardback, 234 pages


In Part I of his new book The Flesh of Re, Bob seeks to explain the foundations of the original ‘stellar cultus’ as demonstrated through the sites and artefacts of Pre-Dynastic Nubia/Egypt. He then argues that its subsequent historical development and spread by initiates of the Star & Snake was through that of activating the ‘Ophidian Current’. In Part II, Bob then utilizes translations of the Ancient Egyptian Pyramid Texts and Coffin Texts which provide much of the Early Dynastic development of the magical understanding of the Egyptian Netherworld. Part III of the work is based on occult praxis and the function of Amenti and the Duat and more importantly that of the Nightside Tradition developed by Kenneth Grant. In Part IV of Bob’s work, he focuses specifically on the hieroglyphs, transliteration, translation and iconography of the Book of Gates. His conclusions are nevertheless specifically concerned with Skrying & Magick.
