Moreover, the palm tree is there equated with the
Pillar of Heaven whose collapse caused the end of the previous era, the
one of Atlantis, as is evident in hindsight.
In other words, this Primordial Phoenicia
is the Paradise of origin not only of the Phoenicians, but of many other
races as well. Actually, the name of Atala, so closely connected with the
one of Atlantis, also means "Land of the Palm Trees", both in Sanskrit
and in Dravida, the two sacred tongues of the region of Indonesia before
the cataclysm that forced its people to emigrate to better, safer regions
of the world.7
The Sanctuary and the Meaning of
the Holy Barque
In the sanctuary (or holy of holies) of
the Egyptian temple was kept the holy barque of the god or goddess, the
one in which he/she was processioned along the Nile. Actually, the statue
of the god was kept inside a sort of chest that was indeed the cabin of
the embarkation. This cabin was called
pyxis in Greek,
and corresponds to the Ark of Covenant of Judeo-Christian traditions, to
which it served as the model. Its Egyptian name is
word which indeed designated the shrine within which the statue of the
god was kept.
many authorities hold that the Ark of Covenant is a direct copy of the
Egyptian shrine (per), that is, the
naos or cabin of the
holy barque. These holy barques correspond to the well-known Solar Boats
in which the gods were deemed to travel to and from Paradise, as illustrated
in Fig. 5 and in innumerous other iconographies.
To make a long story short, we may say
that the barque is the Ark where the gods once came from Punt, crossing
the Indian Ocean, driven out of their homeland by the terrible cataclysm
that caused its sinking. Such is the nocturnal trip illustrated by the
voyage of the
boat. And, in the end of times the gods, led
by Osiris, whose figure the Pharaoh represents, shall return to Paradise
(Punt) the same way, sailing in the
sactet boat, the one of the
The Pharaoh as the Barger of Paradise
In Egyptian, the radix
per is connected
with the idea of motion and, more precisely, of crossing into Paradise
naos of the Solar Boat. It also forms the name of the
aa (or pharaoh), who is indeed the alias of Osiris as the ferrier
of the Solar Barque of Paradise. Moreover, the word also designated the
pylons (or gateway) of the Egyptian temples, which represented the similar
ones of Paradise, as depicted in certain Egyptian iconographies. In other words, the Pharaoh (per-aa) was indeed "the great one (aa) in the ship (per)", rather than "the Big House", as some unwise Egyptologists often interpret his name.
This means that the Pharaoh was the captain of the Ark, the pilot of the Celestial Ship represented in the skies by the Argonavis constellation. More exactly, the Celestial Pilot (Per-aa) is represented by the beautiful star Canopus (alpha Carinae), which is often identified with Osiris or Atlas in this role of theirs. As we explain elsewhere in detail, the word Canopus, the name of the pilot of the Argonavis and of the boat of Osiris, the Solar Barque, indeed derives from the Dravida, and means "Pole Star"(xan-oppu. By extension, it also means "Pilot", "captain", as the one who navigated by keeping an eye on the Pole Star.
The word Canopus also applied to the so-called "Magic Calabashes", a sort of primitive sextant/compass combination used by the ship's pilots in antiquity to orient themselves by means of the star Canopus. Canopus is the (talking) figurehead of the Celestial Ship, the Argos (or Argonavis constellation).
