(Oubratouvishar:) "We asked the governor, if something similar has never occurred to an extremely just person on this earth.
 
2
The governor shrugged his shoulders and said: 'Directly most likely never; but for indirect communication there are true examples in the scriptures and from verbal transmissions over generations, that very just and devout people in moments of an enraptured state, saw the spirit of God as a light penetrating all spaces of infinity, and they themselves were part of this light. To all, however, to whom such mercy was given, confess, that they were seized through and through by such indescribable feeling of joy in this light, and started to prophesy; and what they prophesied always came true. However, never ever has any mortal seen the true primordial God in another form!
 
3
Man in a limited form, wants to bring the primordial God closer to himself, his heart is thirsty for it, to see the Creator in an accessible human form and with Him the everlasting primordial spirit, and to exchange words with Him like with a person. However, this is nothing than a foolish desire of the retarded people, which is in a certain way forgivable, but forever cannot be realized. Since the finite can never become infinite - and the infinite never finite!'
 
4
This is what the wise governor said to us, and we understood this as best as our weak intelligence allowed us to.
 
5
Nevertheless, despite of everything, in each one of us like by itself, a still so large divine personally started to grow, since we felt too much lost in the divine infinity and could not completely find our way therein. Our heart longed for a personal God who could be seen and loved, while our mind always declared war against our poor heart, which felt way too small, to comprehend the divine infinity with all our love, although the governor recommended to us, to love the primordial Godhead.
 
6
The governor told us, that there was a nation on earth, by the name 'Jews'. This nation had the most correct recognition of the most highest God. A first of their wise, a born Egyptian named Moi ie sez (which means: 'my admission', a name which was given to him by a princess, when she saved him from the Nile), had spoken to God for a period of fifty years. The spirit of God strictly forbade him to never imagine Him in any form of a picture! Also this wise at one stage expressed the desire according to his heart, to see Him personally, however got the answer, 'You cannot see God and live!'
 
7
But when nevertheless the desire in the heart of the wise became more intense, the spirit of God instructed him to hide in a cave and come forward if called. The wise did that; and when called, he came forward and saw in a distance the back of God, shining brighter than a thousand suns! His face became thereupon so bright, that no person could look at him for a period of seven years without going blind, which was the reason why this person had to cover his face with thick materials for the entire period. All this, as you know, was told to us by the very wise governor.
 
8
To what extend all this was so or otherwise, we would not know how to judge; we only know that never one untrue word has come over the lips of the governor. As he has heard it, in precisely the same way he gave it to us.
 
9
You know, when we asked him, where in the whole land of Egypt, the true, everlasting primordial Godhead was ever worshipped and highly revered according to the most possible truth, he said: 'Not very far from here, namely in the great rock temple of Ja bu, sim, bil (which means : 'I was, I am and I will be')! Through a large and high gate the way leads to the inner of the big mountain hall. This is adorned with columns, which are carved from the rock. Between each column stands an armed giant of at least twelve man sizes, as if carrying the sealing of the temple.
 
10
The inner is divided by an arch into three halls; in each, on both sides, are standing seven such giants, altogether fourteen giants in each of the three halls. These are symbols of the seven spirits of God. The hall is counting in its three sections six times seven such giants, this shows, that God already from the beginning of all creation has set six time periods, and that in each of these endless long and always each other penetrating time periods, the same spirits have always carried everything and have worked everywhere. Each of the six long sides of the three part temple hall, is engraved with all kind of signs and figures, which could be deciphered by him who was knowledgeable about the old wisdom, namely what the spirit of God has revealed to the primordial arch-wise of this country.
 
11
At the end of the three halls, again the covered picture of the I-sis could be found, the uncovered Ou-sir-iez, and on the altar in front of the I-sis, the words engraved in hard rock: Ja-bu-sim-bil! At the entrance on both sides of the temple gate, there are two giants each in a sitting position, representing the four main element forces of God in nature; that they are sitting, indicates the order of rest, in which they have been placed by God, to serve all creatures according to the will of God.
 
12
An inscription above the gate reminds the visitor of this holy site, that he always should enter the holy halls with a collected spirit. Who comes to the first hall, will find the first columns engraved with quite strange signs and figures; these indicate a sort of world war under the expression 'God's wars'.
 
13
Now, in that I have not been too knowledgeable about the old wisdom, to explain this to you any further and deeper! Within seven days I will lead you there, where you can see all this for yourself. Of course, the sharp tooth of time has damaged a view things at this ancient holy place; but most of it is still preserved quite well, and you still can learn a lot from it!'
 
14
Now, what feelings were starting to grow inside us! And we hardly could wait for the day on which the governor would lead us to the described holy place. When finally the day arrived, and we trotted on our camels there, how were our hearts glowing, when we began to come closer to the pre-temple, which should be nothing else than a grave of a few ancient wise men! How much did our hearts pounded, when we came to the great rock temple! Which indescribable impression made the four personified elements, and didn't we nearly became speechless, when we entered the halls with burning torches? Why did all this seized us so mightily? Because we thought we are closer to the highest, true God-being then anywhere in Memphis.
 
15
When we left the marvellous temple under many tears and sighs and the governor told us a few things from the ancient times of the earth, how we were moved by all this, so that finally we started to regard the whole earth as a large temple of God! Whether the few days were hot or more cool, we did not noticed; since our hearts had too much to do, namely with everything which could bring the primordial spirit of God closer to us. And still we completely missed the point. We surely knew a lot then; but the I-sis stayed covered and veiled, and no mortal was ever able to lift this mysterious garment of the everlasting Godhead."
