Well Pig Farmer you like to quote dictionaries why not quote what the dictionary says about obelisks? You do have a brain don’t you Pig Farmer? Now that’s funny Pig Farmer, I don’t see anything about the sun or sun rays. Maybe that is some more Jesuit inspired disinformation. Anything that disagrees with the Pig Farmer has got to be Jesuit inspired disinformation.

Ra



Ra, in ancient Egyptian mythology, sun god depicted with a human body and the head of a hawk. Ra was usually considered the creator and controller of the universe, his chief symbols being the sun disk and the obelisk. Originally a local cult, the worship of Ra first became widespread during the Old Kingdom in Egypt. The chief temple of Ra was at the city of Heliopolis, which became an important center when the cult was adopted as a state religion. Ra later became associated with other important deities, particularly Amon and Horus.

The obelisk, called TEJEN in the sacred language of the ancient Egyptians, was a term which was synonymous with "protection" or "defense." The needle of stone had the function of perforating the clouds and dispersing negative forces that always threaten to accumulate, in the form of visible storms or invisible ones, and was placed over the temple as a symbol of a petrified ray.

The word "Obelisk" comes from the Greek obeliskos, meaning a prong for roasting.

It is a stone that is frequently monolithic, of a quadrangular base, placed upright and ending with a pointed top. It was placed in the center of large open spaces in the temples of the solar god RA. They arose, by the time of the predynastic period cults, to a great sacred stone which was raised in the Temple of Heliopolis, the "City of the Sun." As with the pyramids, this monument had a primitive relation with the solar cult.
