Ammut is a goddess in khem
She is called the devourer or the eater of the dead.
She is known for eating the dead who fail the test in the otherworld.
By failing the test the dead’s soul or heart is feed to Ammut.
She feed’s on the hearts of the dead.
When you moved to the after life…
You are given a test…
Your heart is weighed.
Ammut goes away if you pass the test
You must be pure of heart.

Ok I have a discussion idea Idea maybe.
What does everyone think of Ammut? Do you think she did her job properly?

I mean anyone could get passed her if they brought certain chapters in the Book of Going Forth By Day, where they can implore their heart not to betray them to Ammut and help them to be ligher than the feather of Maat.
So by the sounds of it any murderer could get passed her if they own these texts.
