Egyptians were symbolic and literal with their teachings
In astronomy, the interstellar medium (ISM) is the matter that exists in the space between the star systems in a galaxy. This matter includes gas in ionic, atomic, and molecular form, as well as dust and cosmic rays.
The intergalactic medium (IGM) is "a rarefied plasma that is organized in a cosmic filamentary structure.
How would some there perceive the NUN? Or would the region perceived as NUN from here be observed from a different perspective there?
The purpose of all rituals in ceremonial magic was – and is – to unite the microcosm with the macrocosm, to join God, or the gods, when invoked (prayer or concentrated thought) with human consciousness.
There is much in the Lament that is difficult to understand and our modern mind is ill-equipped to comprehend. That is, in fact, exactly what Hermes is saying in this dialogue – though it is largely a monologue – to Asclepius
The gods were called upon and asked to manifest themselves. This was done via a ritual, which involved the invocation of the First Time, which was seen as an existence outside of this reality, comparable to the world of archetypes as defined by Carl Jung. The magician tapped into this pool and re-enacted archetypical scenarios. These scenarios – templates – are known to us, as they are, for example, the story of the battle of Horus against Seth. In the ritual, an image of the god that was called upon was made.
He stated that the theocracies of the ancient world were the only means for a bicameral civilization to survive. Circumventing chaos, these rigid hierarchies allowed for "lesser men hallucinating the voices of authorities over them, and those authorities hallucinating yet higher ones, and so" to kings and gods. According to Jaynes, "the idols of a bicameral world are the carefully tended centers of social control, with auditory hallucinations instead of pheromones."
the created experience created by the belief in such societal norms, who created it and for what reasons. No different from the world we live in today... mostly unawares of the "matrix overlay"...

There is a difference between the Egyptian Gnosis, which was very open minded, lay people spoke their dreams and visions, not guided by the rabbi so to speak, and women and men took turns. It was like the Tao, shamanism, the body of ancient knowledge and wisdom.
Atum is the One God, rays of the sun? And this is what Moses, tried to instill upon Egypt. Mind you I've read up on Moses and David lineage as pharoah's and the righteous teacher, Joshua, the son of Moses who became replacement for the father when he was exiled and was loved for opening the doors to temples again. Though its possible that a farther back righteous teacher was Buddha, or whoever he was based on. He went to meet with his father at mount sinai to welcome him back though not to meddle with the minds of others, for in a sense what Moses was trying to instill in the land amounts to dictatorship and sharia type domination of the beliefs of others. And his followers murdered Joshua and hung him from a tree.
So some actually view Joshua as Christ. However, again, think he was schooled in that which went further and deeper back.
