The hieroglyphic meaning of the Mem is a woman, the companion of man, it therefore gives rise to ideas of fertility and formation. It is pre-eminently the maternal and female, the local and plastic sign, the image of external and passive action. Employed at the end of words, this letter becomes a collective sign a (final Mem). In this case it develops the being in unlimited space.

Creation necessitates equal destruction in a contrary sense, and therefore the Mem designates all the regenerations that have sprung from previous destruction, all p. 159

transformations, and consequently death, regarded as the passage from one world to the other.

The Mem is one of the three Mother letters.
