UTTERANCE 689 (The Compelling Eye of Second Sight)

This selection is located only in the pyramid of Pepi II on the north or Second Sight wall, in the central or Axial Chamber. The Eye is described as 'compelling' or 'enforcing', because it will paranormally grant any wish of the Seer. In line 2089a, Faulkner quite orthodoxically suppresses the very real and mysterious 'voice' or 'semivowels' of approaching Levitation beneath a later completely inappropriate idiom in the Egyptian Hieroglyphs!
