Obelisks started off in Heliopolis
Where, primordially, people had worshiped the sun.
Subsequently, those stone “sunbeams” – as trophies –
Got moved to Rome, Paris, London, and even, New York –
Traveling from capital to capital –
Empire to empire.
They remind us that even though sunbeams are intangible –
They’re the source of all light and life.
This is spiritual materialism at its best – and worst –
Representing light and life with massive granite spikes
Poking up into the azure blue eye
Light and life are essential attributes of “God” –
Really, any God at all!
Obelisks are ancient spiritual materialistic
Symbols for God –
First imagined by the Egyptians –
Taking the form of giant granite sunbeams.
