"The idea of a purely immaterial existence was so foreign to Egyptian thought that when Christianity spread in Egypt they borrowed the Greek word psyche to describe the concept of soul and not the term Ba."
This led me to think that perhaps there is a connection between the story of Eros and Psyche and the Opening of the Mouth Ceremony.
All stories have their origins in prior stories (mythopoeic speculation) and so those who have ears can hear the echoes of previous cultures in each story; not that the stories are the same, b/c stories change and morph over time - frequently improving on prior stories or losing elements of prior stories or gathering other elements of story like barnacles on a ship. Thus what we have are "Echoes" not identities.
But where did this structure come from? If the followers of "The Way" were delving into their own culture they probably were looking to Eleusis and the mythological system of the Thesmophoros, the giver of the law, Demeter/Persephone. This Greek story is troped in the story of Psyche and Eros; Demeter loses Persephone to death, mother wanders/labors for daughter, the two are united and the daughter, Kore "the virgin" is apotheosized into the "Cosmic Mother", Deimater, becoming part of the eternal pattern of Logos. Such a story, taken from Egyptian "opening of the mouth ceremony" and stories of the Ka and the Ba united in the Akh would have continued down the ages and found its way into Christian ritual.
