Excerpt from A Descriptive Pamphlet of Stereopticon Slides in the History of Education

Slide I. Amenophis III and his double. The double is the second figure. Maspero, in his Life in Ancient Egypt and Assyria, says: When one is born into this world, his double, or to give it the native name, the Ka, enters it with him. Since this double is usually invisible, the painters and sculptors seldom represent it. When they attempt to do so they depict it as the exact image of the being to which it is attached. The picture at Luxor in which Pharaoh Amenophis III has reproduced the history of his childhood is a good example of the fashion in which it should be imagined. Amenophis is born, and his double is, like himself, an infant, whom nurses cherish with the same care; he grows and his double grows with him. The double faithfully accompanies his prototype through all the vicissitudes of his earthly existence. After death it follows him to the tomb and dwells there near the mummy, sometimes hidden in the funeral chambers, some times escaping outside, recognizable at night by a pale light, which has won for it the name of Luminous, Khu.

Text Book, pp. 2-6; Brief Course, 6-8. See Frazer, Golden Bough; Tylor, Anthropology; Tylor, Primitive Culture, Vols. I and II.
