UTTERANCE 539 (The Resulting Levitation, when correctly 'Said is the solitary Word')

This selection is located only in the pyramid of Pepi I on the south wall of a Waiting-room in the Entrance Passage. Faulkner conveniently suppresses the overwhelming 'levitation' nature of this long Utterance by characterizing it in his heading as an 'ascension' text, which is perilously close to the same thing! Faulkner is translating the third person Pepi I in the equivalent first person form. But he consistently ignores the unmistakable 'pun structure' evidence of significant meaning which is inside of so many of the Pyramid Text words, like those in italics below. It is clear that the authors of these texts were keenly aware of an ancient spiritual technology for Levitation, not unlike that in the Kashmir Shaiva tradition, still surviving in India today. After all, the same 'solitary Word is Said' for the paranormal attainment of Levitation in both Jaideva Singh's English translation of the Paratrisika-Vivarana and the Pyramid Texts.
