. . . . .Inside the temple of Kom Ombo we find a pharaoh and the goddess Seshat preforming
what is called "stretching the cord". This act represents the measure and layout of this temple.
Seshat, who was the sister and wife of Thoth was the patroness of arithmetic,
architecture and records. After preforming this act she would write the kings name on the
tree of life, this would assure the kings immortality.
