I truly, honestly don't find it complicated, which makes it hard for me to respond to questions rooted in an assumption that it is.  In a lot of ways, it's a lot like people.

Say I know Pat.  Pat likes to garden, Pat makes a killer casserole, Pat sings in the local theatre productions, Pat works as a doctor.  It's all Pat, but if I go to the clinic with a sore throat, I'm not dealing with Pat, I'm dealing with Pat who comes to rest in Doctor.  The concept of "doctor" is independent of Pat, but Pat fully instantiates it.  Pat also does all this other stuff that doesn't have a direct bearing on being a doctor.

Sekhmet is the Eye of Ra.  Pat is the doctor.  Hetharu is also the Eye of Ra.  Fred and Julie are also doctors.

Khnum is a creator.  Ra is a creator.  Khnum-Ra is a consulting specialist. :}

Gah, I came to this party late. This is about how I look at it. I myself have many names, many different aspects of myself that people know, without knowing the whole. You all know me- but you only know one side of me (same for people on other forums/journals/work/etc). So when I look at it like that, it makes a lot more sense. Kudos to Darkhawk for explaining it 1000x better than I could have, though.
