Hamlets Mill... yes a great work, albeit not the easiest read I have ever had...but it retains an important place in my library.
You surely are well into the myth /allegory deciphering game! Wonderful...a fascinating study is it not. Your methodology is a good one that immediately throws a different complexion onto the texts. Please keep up the good work, there are insufficient folks working in this direction.
The pole star does not fit the elements you mention but is associated with the flood story as is seen in Deluge and briefly described in Science Versus Religion, the introduction to both of our books here. Given that the skies were the only stable elements in folks lives in the distant past I am amazed that their studies and use of the skies are not recognised more widely.
Thanks for the insight into your efforts, it is appreciated.
