So you believe that tools are used once and never made again.
A ceremonial bowl might be unique but a floating oil lamp still has the same general design TODAY. The difference is only that this oil lamp is designed to go out if it isn't rocked gently. We could build one today and it copuld look quite similar to this. But who wants or needs a lamp that burns out on still water.

No. What you are doing is speculation.
I am stating that the builders appear to have referred to a floating oil lamp that burned out when not being rocked. I am further stating that this device has all the needed characteristics AND none besides.

NONSENSE! It simple observation that it breaks linguistic law and is not comprehensible. I don't need to prove that 2 + 2 = 4. I also don't need to prove it doesn't equal 3. What do you want me to do hold your hand as you point at the words to count them? Am I supposed to read every word to you to prove their are no taxonomic words, no word for belief, no word for thought, no word for ramp, and no reductionistic words. In other words some 90% of our (non-noun) vocabulary can't even be translated into Ancient Language!!!!!! Yet Egyptologists believe they understand the language. They never even noticed ANY of these things. I noticed them but only because I came to understand how the language works.

People mistake consciousness and the ability to use language as a condition they call "intelligence" (I think therefore I am). True intelligence does not exist as a condition but only as an event. This event is rare in some people but is common in all animals.

And you know this because an Egyptologist told you after he assumed the Pyramid Text was an older version of the "book of the dead". His assumption is wrong so his conclusion is wrong.

Where did anyone agree it might be a floating oil lamp?
The only thing that is irrational is failing to explore the artefacts or hiding them from sight when they mentioned. "Irrational" is ignoring the posts here by individuals who have actually explored the nature and characteristics of this disc. "Irrational is speculating and then refusing to consider any actual facts and logic.
I can be wrong but facts and logic are the stuff of my hypotheses. I have great interest here and it's obvious Egyptology is not going going to contribute one iota to the discussion as they hold the original under wraps and refuse to do testing on it. Rather than actually earn their pay it's easier to just announce it "mustta been a ceremonial bowl".
