    Ptah is one of the great creator gods of ancient Egypt. Khnum created the creatures who live upon the Earth; Ptah created the Earth and the Sky to nourish and support their lives. Ptah created the world from his thoughts. The ancient Egyptians believed that the mind resided in the heart. During the embalming process, they routinely threw away the brain and saved the heart. One of their central myths involves the weighing of the heart against the feather of Ma'at.
