While all philosophical schools embraced the psychecentric consciousness to some degree, there were a very few that made it avowedly and explicitly the focus of their attention. The divine avowedly and explicitly the focus of their attention. The divine personifications (´gods´) of such schools have come down to us as symbols of what most Western religions, worshippers of non - consciousness, consider the supreme ´evil´: the Prince of Darkness in his many forms.
Of these the most ancient is Set, whose Priesthood can be traced to predynastic times, Images of Set have been dated to ca. 3200 BCE, with astronomically- based estimates of inscriptions dating to ca. 5000 BCE.

The original Priesthood of Set in ancient Egypt survived for twenty-five recorded dynasties (ca.3200-700 BCE). It was one of the two central priesthoods in predynastic times, the other being that of HarWer ("Horus the Elder"). Unification of Egypt under both philosophical systems resulted in the nation´s being known as the "Two Kingdoms" and in its Pharaohs wearing the famous "Double Crown" of Horus and Set.

Originally a circumpolar/steller deity portrayed as a cyclical counterpart to the Solar Horus, Set was later recast as an evil principle by the cults of Osiris and Isis. During the XIX and XX Dynasties Set returned as the Pharaonic patron, but by the XXV Dynasty (ca. 700 BCE) a new wave of Osirian persecution led to the final destruction of the original Priesthood of Set. When the Hebrews emigrated from Egypt during the XIX Dynasty, however, they took with them a caricature of Set: "Satan" (possibly from the hieroglyphic Set-hen, one of the God´s formal titles).
