Information from =Michaeldavitt

The eye of Ra-Atum, mentioned above, is the mythological symbol for the sun. At one point, Shu and Tefnut, twin children of Ra-Atum, were separated from him.

He sent his eye to find them. While the eye was searching, Ra-Atum replaced the eye with another. When the eye returned with Shu and Tefnut, Ra-Atum wept with joy, and the tears created humankind.

However, the eye was enraged at having been replaced. Ra-Atum placed the eye on his forehead so that the eye could rule the world; thus becoming associated with the sun.

The second eye is associated with the moon.

If I could change one thing about my best friend it would be to change that runny black mascara when she gets all emotional and doubles for Alice Cooper ;}
