Ka (Egyptian) plural kau. Equivalent to the astral double, model-body, or linga-sarira. The ancient Egyptians held that when a human being was born, the ka was born with him and remained with him throughout his life. Even after death it remained in the tomb with the corpse; it was popularly believed that the offerings placed on graves were made to perpetuate the ka. Furthermore, the gods possessed them, each deity being said to have many kau; thus in one text the god Ra is said to possess seven bau (souls) and 14 kau. Even cities were held to possess kau in the heaven world.

Ka (Sanskrit) [from kah or kas interog who] Who -- personified as a deity; "it has its esoteric significance and is a name of Brahma in his phallic character as generator or Prajapati" (TG 167). Also the incomprehensible or ineffable, an expression of the speaker's mental refusal to give a name to that which is unnamable and inexpressible, and is therefore equivalent to parabrahman.

The half-time for absorption is computed as 0.693/ka, i.e. ln 2/ka.
