Does the number 24 have any significance?  Thank you ahead of time.

Em hotep, Seta!

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any significance the number alone has... other than being divisible by 4, the number of completion, sixfold. That being said, it's a very surface level answer, and possibly one of the first most kemetics would lean towards. :3

If you are looking outside of said kemetic context, there is also numerology, where the number 24 is broken down into 6 (ironically as much as that 4 is multiplied by, above), which represents home life, family, commitment, harmony. Either way, it seems to have a positive vibe around it, at first glance!

I'd be interested to see if some other folks can chime in with more insight if there is any.

Senebty,
Emhat

I was reminded that the 24 hours in a day actually comes from Ancient Egypt.  Hmmm...  Anyone able to expand on that meaning?
