“Ptah is Maat, the divine wisdom, though from another aspect he is Svabhavat, the self created substance. As a prayer addressed to him in the ritual of the dead says: After calling Ptah “father of all fatherhood and of all gods, generator of all the human beings produced by his substance. “Thou art without father, being, engendered by thy own will; thou art without mother, being born by the renewal of thine own substance from whom proceeds substance.” 

– H. P. Blavatsky
