An Egyptian word that can be used as a noun or a verb. As a noun, it refers to a “transformation” or “manifestation”; as a verb, it means “to be transformed” or “to come into being.” It’s also the Egyptian word for scarab beetles, which were revered for the awesome metamorphoses they experience during their life cycle. As a principle, kheper is the process of evolving from one state of being into a higher and more complex state of being. This can be a purely physical kind of evolution, but it can also be mental, emotional or spiritual. The entire evolution of the multiverse can be described as an ongoing series of gigantic kheperu (the plural form).
