The basic outline of the Egyptian human model, i.e. the seven-component model of a human according to the Egyptians.

In models, Egyptian human (TR:12) (LH:3) (TL:15), aka "Egyptian human model", or clayical theology model of the Egyptians, refers to seven or eight main parts that ancient Egyptians believed humans to be comprised of.

Overview

In 2500BC, in Egypt, a human was defined as having the following main parts:[1]

  1. Body (Khat), a clay-shape, made by Khnum, on his divine potters’ wheel
  2. Life (Ankh), made "alive" when Hathor put her ankh, symbol: , to the mouth of Khnum's clay figurines, giving them the breath of life
  3. Heart (Jb), the Ba, bird-like soul, resided in the heart
  4. Soul (Ba)
  5. Spirit (Ka)
  6. Shadow (Sheut)
  7. Secret name (Ren)
  8. Ghost (Aka)

Other renditions of the "Egyptian human", of note, will list up to nine or more different aspects of the human.

Canopic jars

The Egyptians also removed four organs from the body, namely: stomach, intestines, lungs, and liver, which were believed to be needed in the afterlife.[2] There was, of note, no jar for the heart, which the Egyptians believed it to be the seat of the soul (or home of the Ba), and thus left inside the body. Also, the brain was considered as but stuffing from the skull, and removed by scraping it out, before entombment.

Recensions

The basic model of "American human" (Wommack, 2016)[3], a culturally-transmitted reformulation of the original Egyptian human, modified by about 4,500-years of redaction and reduction, from Greek to Roman to European (German, French, English) to America.

Greece

In 550 to 200BC, Greeks, after studying in Egyptian, developed the "Greek human" model, which varies depending on which thinker is cited; the dominate version, however, being that of Plato, who developed a tripartite model of the soul.

Rome

In 200 to 800AD, Romans rescripted the Greek model, to the effect that a person possessed a mind, life, spirit, and a soul, descriptions of which varying per scholar.

France

In 1750, in France, thinkers, such as Julien Mettrie and Baron Holbach, began to advance the view that humans possessed neither a soul nor a spirit, but rather humans were types of machines, automatons, or movement derived from matter and motion, depending on scholar cited.

America

See also: American human

In 2010s, in American, thinkers, such as Alfred Rogers, Jonathan Dowling, and Libb Thims, building on the French enlightenment, began to advance the view humans were types of atomic geometries that possessed neither soul, nor spirit, but also where things that did not possess a property called "life" (see: abioism), as this logic falls apart in a number of areas, e.g. origin of life of definition of life.
