“The word pyramid is popularly supposed to be derived from πῦρ, fire, thus signifying that it is the symbolic representation of the One Divine Flame, the life of every creature.”
~Manly P. Hall
The word pyramid is composed of the three words, Pyr, am (om), and id.
Pyr – The meaning of pyr or pyre is from Latin which is derived from the Greek pura, from pur, ‘fire.’
Am or Om – The word am or om is the sacred syllable used to represent God such as in the ancient Greek name Ammon (Aum-en or Aum-on) that later becomes the last letter in the Greek alphabet, Omega- meaning the “great Om.” As it is said in the Scripture, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”(Revelation 3:14)
Id – The last word in pyramid is ‘id’, which means the part of the mind in which innate instinctive impulses and primary processes are manifest.
Therefor if we combine the words Pyr, am, and id, we find the true meaning of the word Pyramid is the “Fire of God in the Mind.”
This fire is inherent in all living creatures on the so below here on earth and also in the heavens in the As Above.
The pyramids allowed the initiates of the Secret Mysteries, such as the Priesthood of the Magi and royal family of the Pharaoh to tap this fire in order to alchemically transform and renew themselves with the sacred fire on the So Below.
These were the holy rites of Initiation of the Pyr-am-ids into the immortal mysteries of the Gnosis of the soul through the divine sacred fire of the universe.
