Amon advised me that the first high priest, at that time it was Paiankh, would contact me and make a time for my initiation ceremony. In due course I met with Paiankh. From our first conversations I gained the impression that he had been a high priest in this community for some time but it turned out he had been there for less than a month. It was Paiankh who had been the impetus for the forming of a priesthood in the sim in the first instance. Prior to that there had been a temple but no priests. From my conversations with Paiankh I was able to discern that he was a Mason and an occultist in meatspace, he had been initiated into a temple of the Stella Matutina, as well as being a Martinist, and took the initiation rituals in Second Life very seriously. In fact I cannot provide here a transcript of my initiation ritual as he asked for it not to be published. Paiankh had said I was to be initiated into the lowest level, a wab priest, but after reading my application card he decided to admit me to the second level, as a hem netjer. In ancient Egypt a wab priest was an assistant to the hem netjer whose role it was to see to the maintenance of the temple1. A hem netjer required a higher level of purity as their duties included preparing offerings and having access to the sanctuary to perform rituals2 3.
