in two realms at once : the awakening
In the uraeus
worn by the pharaoh,
(Vulture Goddess) and Wadjet
(Cobra Goddess) together
represented the union of Upper and Lower Egypt, and they also served as protectors. An area in the temporoparietal region of the brain reliably causes out-of-body experience when
electrically stimulated* Nekhbet and Wadjet are shown at that doorway. Two aspects of "being" are indicated: one lives in and is focused upon mundane reality; the other wears the uraeus, is aware of the
doorway, and is awakening to the true significance of that.
