Nice! I had heard that Ahkenaten had written a hymn to the sun, and never knew the words. The titles in the video indicate that Akhenaten saw the sun as a personification of the god, and not the god himself. Or so it seems to me. I wonder how deep the theology was, and who brought it to him?

The second video is a beautiful piece of music.

Supposedly the theology was quite deep.  Akhenaten saw the other gods as being reflections of Aten, the supreme solar disk.  He was an impersonal god who was the creator of all, the whole of creation rose with him in the morning.  From what i've read of the solar cult, it almost reminds me of something Taoism combined with the Vedas.  Here's the real interesting thing, there's a huge similarity between him and Moses.  Not sure just how much evidence there is for the parting of the Red Sea, would think something like that would have been written down.  Akhenaten however did live, create his own city and own religious system. 

Wardwuna's new CD was stalled thanks to covid.

Looks glorious. 

It was. Our Visa ran out so they made us leave. I'm glad we did it when we did. I don't know if I have another 5000 mile sail in me.
