Have more to post but watching this ceremony live at the moment.

They are calling back the old Gods. 

It's stunningly beautiful...

The ceremony was amazing.  I felt like I time traveled and was watching a ceremony from 3000 years ago.

Wow that’s impressive. Wonder if it has anything to do with moving the capital out of Cairo

Interesting!  I missed that news completely.
It's odd to plan for a city that has no name.

The District will be built in three phases over a 7 to 10 year period, and is projected to create approximately 700,000 total jobs. The plan envisions 4 and 6-star resorts and themed hotels; a wellness center; vacation rentals; luxury homes, villas and high-rises; high-end and regional shopping and dining; a VIP golf course and other recreational and green space activities; world-class theme parks; a cultural arts center; a convention center; a planetarium; aviary, butterfly, topiary and botanical gardens/conservatories; a museum and recreational activities for children; a Formula One racetrack; a sports and concert stadium; and an entertainment college for training future global entertainment and travel destination development leaders.

The District will feature two iconic landmarks: the world’s tallest observation wheel, with unique views of Egypt’s past, present and future, as well as the world’s tallest obelisk, an ancient symbol of Egypt’s cultural heritage designed to point toward the country’s bright future. The development will welcome visitors through a cutting-edge multi-modal transportation hub that will connect with the New Administrative Capital’s superhighways, infrastructure and high-speed rails.

It's got quite a few places geared toward children.

And then the largest wheel (f.) and obelisk (m). 


Quote
in ancient Egypt obelisks were erected at the will of Pharaoh with the intention of invoking the protection of the Sun God Ra. Usually the obelisks were placed at the entrance of the temples, as they were not only the symbol to celebrate the divinity, but they were also accommodation for the god himself, who was believed to be present inside.
Obelisk has a fundamental symbolic importance that is connected to the “energies of the earth”, expression of the active and fecundating principle that penetrates and radiates the passive and fecundated element. As a solar symbol, the obelisk has a strong masculine characterization, and in fact it is no coincidence that its high and imperious shape obviously recalls the phallic element. The alternation of the sun and the seasons caused the overflowing of the Nile River in ancient Egypt, which left a highly fertilizing silt on the arid sand, dark in colour, which made the land fertile and cultivable, thus ensuring the life and survival of the community. This black land, which in ancient Egypt was called kemet, gave its name to the hermetic discipline of Alchemy, which symbolically resumes its principle.
The obelisks also represented a symbol of power, as they had to remind the subjects of the existence of a link between the pharaoh and the divinity.

so we have Ra in the obelisk, and Aten as the sun disk (?)  or is it Ra and Nut welcoming the children to the new city?

If you want a crash course in Egyptian mythology, which is really Babylonian, listen to Bill Cooper. The enemy of my enemy is my friend, Net.
