Yes, exactly. But remember everything about ancient ideas in context specific. From our perspective horus the younger exists only below the western horizon until isis gives him birth "as the king, as the pyramid".

Yes, again except arcs of the sky are at least in some instances rainbows, mks-sceptre bows, or moon bows.
It's all context.

Yes, but isis and osiris are only loosely tied to such things in some perspectives. Generally isis is the potentiality for lifting stones and osiris is the means but it always depends on context and perspective.

I don't know why it couldn't be possible if the sun rose in the west. I am dubious such an event actually happened based on my estimation of the implied damage to the planet.

I could certainly misunderstand the writing but if I do then my belief of the answer to this question is irrelevant.
If I'm generally correct then it's entirely possible that from some perspective they compared these things linguistically. There's no writing that leaps out to suggest they might think this way. There are no words to my knowledge that imply this association existed. However, my only source is a silly little book of rituals they'd have been ashamed to leave as their only legacy. One wouldn't expect such thinking to exist in this source.
I take your point though that the whole civilization was "wet" and they compared all things to animal anatomy and parts of boats.

That they knew such things seems apparent but we will have to deduce how they knew.

Exactly and they wrote about it everywhere. It was the primeval mound adorned with sky arcs and osiris standing in the eye of horus. It was the stacking of horus the youngers that became the king himself that lasted for thousands of years. It is the younger who exists in tayet that became the instrument of ascension by means isis (the stone from the quarry was stacked by funiculars)(osiris tows the earth by means of balance).
