The Ancient Egyptian THEORY of SALVATION became the purpose of Greek Philosophy. The earliest theory of salvation is the Egyptian theory, taught at the Great African Universities, of Luxor at Thebes, Memphis and Timbuktu. The Ancient Egyptian Mystery System had as its most important object, the deification of man, and taught that the soul of man if liberated from its bodily fetters, could enable him to become godlike and see the Gods in this life and attain the beatific vision and hold communion with the Immortals (Ancient Mysteries, C. H. Vail, P. 25) SEE HERE HOW everything you were taught about the origin of Greek Philosophy is NOT TRUE and how GREEKS STOLE the origin from the ANCIENT AFRICANS.
The Egyptian name for Thebes was wꜣs.t, "City of the wꜣs", the sceptre of the pharaohs, a long staff with an animal's head and a forked base. From the end of the New Kingdom, Thebes was known in Egyptian as niwt-'imn, the "City of Amun", the chief of the Theban Triad of deities whose other members were Mut and Khonsu. This name of Thebes appears in the Bible as the "Nōʼ ʼĀmôn" (נא אמון) in the Book of Nahum and also as "No" (נא) mentioned in the Book of Ezekiel and Jeremiah.
Thebes is sometimes claimed to be the latinised form of Ancient Greek: Θῆβαι, the hellenized form of Demotic Egyptian tꜣ jpt ("the temple"), referring to jpt-swt; the temple is now known by its Arabic name, Karnak ("fortified village"), on the northeast bank of the city. However, since Homer refers to the metropolis by this name, and since Demotic script did not appear until a later date, the etymology is doubtful. As early as Homer's Iliad, the Greeks distinguished the Egyptian Thebes as "Thebes of the Hundred Gates" (Θῆβαι ἑκατόμπυλοι, Thēbai hekatómpyloi) or "Hundred-Gated Thebes", as opposed to the "Thebes of the Seven Gates" (Θῆβαι ἑπτάπυλοι, Thēbai heptápyloi) in Boeotia, Greece.............wiki

Beyond the Third Pylon and in the Central Court of Karnak Temple is the Obelisk of Thutmose I (c.1493 - 1479 B.C.E.) This is the last of the four obelisks which originally stood in front of the Fourth Pylon, which, in the time of Thutmose I, was the entrance to Karnak Temple. The obelisk is 71 feet/21.7 meters in height, sits on a base 6 feet/1.8 meters square, and weighs about 143 tons. Each side of the obelisk has three vertical lines of inscription, the central one being a dedication by Thutmose I.
The obelisk is single shaft of red granite quarried at Aswan
Just to the east of the Sixth Pylon in Karnak Temple is the vestibule to the sanctuary (right), where the priests kept the portable shrine used for carrying the god's statue in processions. In the vestibule, built by Thutmose III (c. 1479-1425) B.C.C.), are these two granite columns, elegant reminders of the importance of the concept of a unified Upper (Nile Valley) and Lower (Nile delta) Egypt. These columns are decorated in raised relief with papyrus on the left (north/the delta) and the Egyptian "lily" on the right (south/the valley).
Many of the main roads which lead to the temples of Thebes (modern Luxor) used to be continuously lined with sphinxes. Those which flanked the entrance to the First Pylon of Karnak Temple combine the body of a lion with the head of a ram. The ram was a symbol 0f the god Amun, the chief deity worshiped in the Great Temple of Karnak. Each sphinx protects, between its forelegs, a standing statue of the king -originally Ramesses II (c. 1279 - 1213 B.C.E.)
The Great Hypostyle Hall of Karnak was begun during the reign of King Seti I (c.1290-1279 B.C.E.) and was completed by his son, Ramesses II (c.1279-1213 B.C.E.). The north-south axis of the hall provides views which reveal not only the immensity but also the practicality of the architecture. The central row of 12 columns on the east-west axis are 69 feet/21 meters in height, about 33 feet/10 meters in circumference, and have open papyrus capitals. The 122 columns in the side aisles are 43 feet/13 meters in height, 27.5 feet/8.4 meters in circumference, and have closed papyrus-bud capitals
First Courtyard and Kiosk of King Taharqa at Karnak Temple.
Standing in the shadow of the First Pylon of the Temple of Amun at Karnak (in Luxor, Egypt), one is struck by the length of its east-west axis and the colossal size of its columns. Like all other temples in Egypt, this one symbolizes the mound of the original creation. The ground rises ever so gradually from the entrance toward the sanctuary. The columns are stone replicas of the vegetation which was growing in the marshy land around the mound of creation.
