For the ancient Egyptians, the Nile was the main connection between their lives and an infinite supply of provisions. But its waters hid an underworld of darkness and mystery for its first settlers. The Nile was one the spiritual paths that combined life and death, the real world and the underworld.
Unlike most civilizations, for the Egyptians the colour black was not associated with either mourning or sadness. Instead, it symbolized the power of regeneration. For them, it was a miracle that, year after year, the Nile's black mud fertilized their lands, following its annual floods.
Two stellar phenomena have been proven to set the rhythm of the Egyptians' life: the journey of the sun god Ra -- that ensured both the renewal of the days and the balance between the two worlds -- and the miracle of the annual flooding of the Nile, thanks to the apparition of the goddess Sotis: the Sirius star.
