Sandyjesse writes “Start out with Pictor and get your heading. Then go full sail with the Caelum Constellation.
Canopus/Argo Navis.”

Latin navis, the ship, has its source in Sumerian NA, a symbol found at the earliest period with meanings of ‘stone’ and ‘weight’, naturally opposed to AN, the eight-pointed star which is ‘sky’ and ‘lightness’. (see ePSD) In my second book soon to be published, BEFORE BABEL: THE CRYSTAL TONGUE, I investigate further than the original re-translation of The Instructions of Shuruppak and demonstrate the link between “naval’ and ‘navel’ – extremely ancient link. The ship, the stone, the navel. They lead to a Great Magician and to pagan times.

The ship is a vital clue to the history of the Great Pyramid of Giza. The wonderfully preserved Khufu boat is testimony to that as are the large boat pits along its eastern flank – possibly much older. The constellation of Argo Navis, the ship, is situated near Canis Major who can be understood as Sumerian UR, both dog and lion. Your enigmatic message concerns celestial navigation. My speciality is the code of the Sumerians. Do you have more to tell?
