PTAH,,, ( PETEH ) [ South of His Wall ] [ The Ancient One ] worshipped in ( MENNEFER ) Memphis already in the early historical period, probably at first as the local centre of craftsmanship, the High Priest in Mennefer was titled ‘Greatest of the controllers of craftsmen ,, showing the importance and status that craftsmen held at the time. He was depicted in mummiform ,,only his hands out , wearing a tight-fitting cap and carrying a combined [WAS  and DJED pillar sector ] . The Pyramid Texts mention him as a creator god and already in the Old Kingdom the priesthood in Mennefer created a theology aimed at defining PTAH as the creative intution behind the universe, accepting the other creator gods but placing them as forms of PTAH . On the Shabaka Stone (c. 700 BC) he is altogether identified as eight primitive forms of God; the first is ‘PTAH who is upon the great  primeval place  meaning  ( the original spirit  ) . Then PTAH-NIU ,,,the waters ‘who was the father of ATUM  next is PTAH-NAUNET ,,, the Primeval Mother who gave birth to ATUM . Then PTAH the very great one who is the heart and tongue of the Divine absolute ,,,Unfortunately several of the names have been lost to us, except NEFERTUM , THE LOTUS . In the Coffin Texts and in the 19th Dynasty he was associated with the early earth god of Mennefer( MEMPHIS ) TA-TNEN , ‘The Land Which Has Become the Primeval Mound. For the people he was ‘the sculptor of the earth’, with a likeness to KHNUM who fashioned mankind on his Pottery  wheel  , perhaps on account of his intellectual and not so colorful mythology. He was associated with Apis, the sacred fertility bull of Mennefer which was called his ‘spokesman’ and his ‘glorious soul’. In the Late Period he was merged with the ancient Memphitian mortuary deity Sokar and through him also with Osiris, thus becoming a composite god ( PTAH-SOKER-OSIRIS ) The ancient Egyptians believed that the name of something held the essence of that being or thing. Instead of as in the Heliopolitan creation myth, where Atum creates the Ennead with his sperm  and his hand . PTAH creates with his word,,, the thought locates  in his heart and when it is formed and spoken by his tongue, the authority of his utterance cause all things come into being. The Ennead of PTAH  is his teeth, lips and tongue , when he speaks his essence transmits and causes gods and mankind to exist. The theology of PTAH  is the story of life makes story behind every story showing power behind the intellectual power of the heart and mind its manifesting the spiritual world which is the ( thought ) into the materialistic world which is the word .
