In Depth Look: Limbo of Amenthes

We're always on an endless search for images that could represent House Madira and the Realms as whole or in parts. This particular image was of interest to was taken on Second Life. (I'm assuming because of the avatar, hanging out on the far left.) We have a SL this week, that mentions what exactly is Limbo, and what is OUR version of Limbo.

Limbo is a speculative idea about the afterlife condition of those who die in original sin without being assigned to the Hell of the damned. Medieval theologians, in western Europe, described the underworld ("hell", "hades", "infernum") as divided into four distinct parts: hell of the damned (which some call Gehenna), Purgatory, limbo of the fathers, and limbo of infants.

Now according to some religions today. Limbo, and these places do not exist. There is no afterlife. There are no spirits. No there is not a Grim Reaper. "Gehenna" is not hell, or a place in hell. In fact Gehenna got it's name from a garbage dumb located outside of ancient Jerusalem Dead bodies (The Soul) and garbage were burned there. Bodies that were thrown there were considered by Jews to be unworthy of a burial and a resurrection. But wait....we aren't here to teach religion....

So back to the topic... Knowing this small detail about Limbo...what is Realms of Amenthes' Limbo. Well for starters it is Where the Goddess Sakhmet resides. She was given this piece of the realms, by Nephthys during Anomolus' and Sakhmet's descension into Amenthes ( Keep in mind they are Brother and Sister). Interestingly Sakhmet is much more chaotic then her older brother. Nephthys finds redeeming qualities in Anomolus, thus giving him control of the realms, and possession of Kheresket who is later discovered to be an alternate personality of Nephthys herself. Sakhmet whom to her is damned for eternity and will never be in her favor...was given control of the fiery pits of Limbo. A much deeper part of Amenthes. Sakhmet is bound to this lower realm, and cannot leave.

Upon Nephthys' death this confused things in Amenthes, and Sakhmet was released, with only one destroy the final piece of Nephthys....Kheresket. This will bring Amenthes to it's knees, giving her complete control. Possibly bringing a destructive end to the descendants and all heirs of Nephthys, and the balance. Mankind may see such fates as well.

So finally who gets to go to Limbo...well from previous information...the unworthy of redemption. Some get lost, and trapped in Limbo. Even those as powerful as Gods, and Goddess can get lost in these pits. Forever chained to Sakhmet. There is only one that may pass back and forth through these 2 levels of Amenthes. That is the Archangel also known as the Grim Reaper, or much preferably the General and right hand of Anomolus. This one is called Azrael Madira, or Prince Samael. Anomolus himself or Kheresket could never go to Limbo. They as well will become trapped. Kheresket often finds herself here, as she runs from Anomolus on several occasions. Azrael is the only one who may enter Limbo, and return Kheresket to her Throne.

It was written a few times that Anomolus, with his shapeshifting ability, shifted into Azrael, and entered Limbo himself. Tricks like this can and will work, but not always. This has given you an in-depth look into Realms of Amenthes. Stay tuned for more, and as always Thank you!
