Resheph's name in hieroglyphs is the 'Electric field Resonance Project Plasma' and in Classical Hebrew meant flame. A flame is a plasma, and as Resheph is male, holding a spear he cannot be part of the electric circuitry of the cosmos but instead is a process.
In military applications a region of projected plasma is created by 'cyclotron resonance', (A cyclic 'particle' accelerator that utilizes an oscillating electric field tuned to this resonance to add kinetic energy to charged particles.)
He holds the Ankh indicating that he is also an aspect of the universe supporting life.
Nikola Tesla - "The idea of atomic energy is illusionary but it has taken so powerful a hold on the minds, that although I have preached against it for twenty-five years, there are still some who believe it to be realizable."
Resheph's hieroglyphs also represents other methods of projecting plasma using strong electric field.
