Like for example, G-d creates human beings. Could Pharaoh create human beings too such that he would believe he was G-d? G-d can also create all types of human beings. If Pharaoh could create Egyptians but not Jews, wouldn't that prove to him he wasn't G-d? Or could he in fact do that? Of course only Hashem can create a Jew's soul and essence but could Pharaoh create people's bodies in an exilic, kelipah state, so to speak, that he would think he was G-d? Shemos teaches that Klal Yisrael were created as a people in the iron furnace of Egypt, so I'm wondering if there is a level of interpretation where Pharaoh was involved in actually creating the people of that generation, including Klal Yisrael, on the surface level, but that he deceived himself as far as thinking he created their souls and essences too when of course he didn't?

  • Another level to why Im asking this is trying to better understand where chazal, so to speak, draw the line with relation to some of gnosticism's similar concepts to Kabbalah, but with crucial differences, viz a viz an evil demiurgic figure being involved in creation. Of course we believe, unlike strains of gnosticism, that Hashem controls everything, so the key difference could be for example what if yes He created certain kelipahs and people under judgement through an evil intermediary such as Pharaoh, but completely under His control, by His plan, unlike gnostic concepts?

    It's not rare to find ordinary humans who think they're gods.

    Is this a Judaism question or an Egyptian history question? If the question is about how Egyptian understood the divinity of their pharaoh, I think this is off topic here.

    The Chabad opinion on this according Rav Friedman is that Pharoah knew about Hashem, and He knew that Hashem wanted the Benei Yisrael to build Him a dwelling place, and He figured that He was also a god, and tried to copy this. This means he was aware he wasn't God, who could create etc, but he was the chief "idol" on earth, above the nile, the sun and the cats :) Egyptian theology has a whole set of rules, including gods do not excrete so that's why he would hide his excretion in the nile. Torah does cover a lot of this but @magicker72 is right, it is generally probably off topic

    How do you know Pharoah believed he was a god rather than just using using this status as he claimed he was a god for more authority and control over the Egyptians?

1 Answer 1


Go to YouTube, Look at the videos from history channel, or from discovery, they will paint you a very different picture of how the biblical times actually were, specifically from the Egyptians point of view.

They were masters of vibrations, magic, mental manipulation, they were connected to a higher awareness (that can be achieved today) If you also read the meam-loez on genesis you can get a greater insight as well.

Pretty much everything that could be done would be done. One of the reasons sex was very rampant in Egypt is because they are using areas of the brain that is responsible for the hormonal effects in the body, as well is responsible for success in your life,

"Ventral Tegmental Area Dopamine Cell Activation during Male Rat Sexual Behavior Regulates Neuroplasticity and d-Amphetamine Cross-Sensitization following Sex Abstinence,"(Beloate, L. N., Omrani, A., Adan, R. A., Webb, I. C., Coolen, L. M. (2016).

While in a state meditation that can be applied while living your regal daily life.

Why would that information be important?

Avoda ZARA the word zara can connote to zera = life, studying Kabbala and basic magic you will learn that in order to perform magic or anything in the sense you would need to tap in too a life force, interior or exterior, the goal is to get a balance of both,

(Tora in the correct settings or formula, will bring you to white magic)

hence why every success coach or trainer will say, new energy equals a new life, or you need to bring life into you to be successful, aka, you need to activate the above parts of the brain, that can be done with extreme/intense thought, sex, or with exercise.

Manipulation of the energy is key,

Now we know that size matters in the world, (not if your seeing the world plainly) as plain physics dictates, the larger object would attract/pull/draw (in comparison to) the smaller objects. This is seen in with people as well, night clubs, concerts anywhere where there's a large group of people, this is why men have a thing about size as they might loose their girl (granted if the girl is weak or un-loyal increasing the odds of her leaving), now we know everything is intention, so if you use your size to drawdown to you the energy of wisdom, wealth, health, power etc, you can even change the direction of energy flow in your favor, change the mood of the area that your in, and lead with compassion, just, wisdom, you will be doing something good, as Moshe told Arron after being confronted by korach, speak softly though be the man with a big staff (along those lines), another indication size matters, moshe himself was thought to be a giant.

Going back to Pharo, Now that you know something new and how size matters in everything, gives a new insight on the pyramids the sphinx and so on. Pharo now mastered everything we have learned, he saved the largest men for guards not only for intimidation, though also for mental manipulation, imagine controlling tens of thousands of people without marketing, television, cell phones, etc at the same time being the smartest in the country, as well as communicating with other deities, pretty g-d like I would say.

ALSO recall avoda zara connoting to avoda zera, they were worshiping pharos energy and systems he uses to manipulate, so we don't mean g-d like the infinite one, the creator of the universe, think of it like a superhero in comparison to a regular human, remember avoda-zara came from worshiping other deities or other (life = zera)energies with great power.

You can argue they have their own g-ds. Yes they do, though this does not contradict anything, as we mentioned earlier, they were in communication with other deities. If you want to think of it like a world leader as the only individual that may communicate with an angle that looks like a g-d, then using the information to impress millions, as a g-d himself, I can heal, walk on water, read your mind, predict your future, light a candle wick on fire with my energy, I can withstand/hold raw fire... I can fly, I can bring the dead back to lifer I can kill without cause. As you can see I am merely mentioning the simple things i'm sure you can think of more extreme talents, earth quakes, destructions of countries, plagues. like a super hero or villain.

Now you can again argue, that I don't have proof of such behavior from that time, and we only know of them worshiping and not manipulating as mentioned. Besides the tora mentioning in parasha Vayera, this weeks parasha, (Jan-19-23), that pharo asked his magicians to replicate what they could and they did until the fifth Aliya.

    "Go to YouTube, Look at the videos from history channel, or from discovery, they will paint you a very different picture of how the biblical times actually were, specifically from the Egyptians point of view." Do we poskim like History Channel, or Discovery Channel? But really, jokes aside, thanks for taking the time, but I'm not sure your answer contains one Jewish source? You quoted a website twice that has sections talking about underground alien bases and Elon Musk alien stuff. Jan 20, 2023 at 9:49
  • @ShipBuilding A jewish source that don't exist, they will provide a great deal of what if's and so on, in my response, I only defined the context as to why people in the ancient times, would believe one was a g-d, where would you find that information in the jewish sources? IF you are really interested in the topic please go to Kosher Tora School where the very qualified rabbi will explain to you in great depths the jewish mystical sources on aliens demons, and so on. I mean King Solomon used demons to build the temple, not known unless your probe really deep with the rabbi.

  • @dude, What was perceived as such was, and what was not is not. The development of the psyche is one thing, entering to another realm encountering forces that give you the power to do, this is then was considered magic, and now under the right formula (combination) a mere frequency tune away.
