Here’s what Massey had to say:
“Egyptians Aarru or paradise, established by Ra, was a “field of reeds” in seven divisions and these were papyrus reeds which sprang up from the marshes. Thus the Kamite paradise was a land of the papyrus plant repeated on the summit of the mount in heaven at the north celestial pole. (Naville, Destruction of Mankind) According to their way of registering a knowledge of the beginnings, the Egyptians were well acquainted with the equatorial regions, which they designated “Apta,” the uppermost point, the mount or literally the “horn point” of the earth. This was afterwards reproduced as the highest point above, when the primeval birth land was repeated in the land of rebirth for spirits in heaven. It is now to be shown that much of the sign language of astronomy, which still survives on the celestial globe, is interpretable on the ground, and for the reason that the “fundamental data” of the underlying mythos was Egyptian, although the commencement in Africa may have been “indefinitely” earlier than the fulfillment in Egypt.”
