    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 naos or 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 per, a word which indeed designated the shrine within which the statue of the god was kept.

    Fig. 5 - The holy barque, the shrine and the altarActually, 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 matet 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 return.

    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 inside the 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).
