The lotus flower has the property that it rises out of the water each each morning (see: video)[1], and blossoms, directing it's yellow center upwards toward the sun. The Egyptians believed that this flower gave birth to the morning sun in the form of the "Horus the Child", aka Harpocrates (in Greek), which later became the motif for the alpha and omega depictions of Jesus (500AD).

In plants, lotus (CR:#) (LH:#) (TL:#) aquatic perennial with large showy flowers, common to rivers and deltas, which has the animation property of rising out of the water and blossoming toward the sun.

Overview

In 2500BC, in Egypt, particularly in Upper Egypt, it was believed that the morning sun, aka the form of the sun god in the morning, was born out of a lotus flower that arose out of the Nile, blossomed, and shot out the sun in the form of a beam of light.

Bennu

In 2800BC, Egyptians believed that the sun was born out of a lotus and was carried into the sky by the bennu bird, the bird itself said to be the ba or soul of Ra the sun god:

This sun + bird model, later came to be called the "phoenix" by Herodotus.

Horus the Child

This model is artistically shown below, the first two images showing "Horus the Child", as the morning sun god, born out of a lotus, rising out of the god Nun or the waters of the Nile; the third image being a statute of the young King Tut (1323BC) showing being born out of a lotus, signifying his divinity; the last being Ani, an Egyptian scribe, whose birth, life, and afterlife, is famous Papyrus of Ani, a personalized version of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, which he paid for as his afterlife textbook of spells:

In 37AD, at Dendera Temple, we see Horus shown standing behind a lotus, the stem of which shown dipping into the waters of the Nun (Nu) or Nile, which generates a bulb of light, considered to be the sun being born, within which is the snake Apep, symbolic of evil, and Ra at the tip of the bulb, representative of the noon sun:

Harpocrates | Jesus

In 800BC, in Greece, Horus the Child came to be known as Harpocrates (500BC), as shown below left:

In Rome, with the rise of Christianity, Horus, Horus the Child, or Harpocrates became rescripted into the humanized character of Jesus, as shown above right, both versions shown with the alpha α or A letter behind the head, the omega ω or W letter in front of the head.

Hinduism | Brahma

In 300BC, in India, the lotus aspect of Egyptian mythology, was rescripted into the story that Brahma (aka Ra) was born out of a lotus flower, the stem of which arose out of the navel of the water god Vishnu (aka Nun), who is shown with the snake (aka Apep) behind him:

Buddhism

In 100BC, in India the gods Krishna and Buddha adopted the born out of a lotus motif as well:

Hmolpedia

In 65AE, Libb Thims, amid the launch of the new Hmolpedia edition, used the human sitting in "lotus position"[2], of the human molecule, as the site icon:

albeit not themed in any sacred way, but rather simply the Hmolpedia logo, of a human conceptualized as a 26 atom geometry, sitting symmetrically.

Quotes

The following are quotes:

“Nor, again, do the Egyptians believe that the sun rises a new-born babe from the lotus, but they portray the rising of the sun in this manner to indicate allegorically the enkindling of the sun from the waters.”
Plutarch (c.100AD), On Isis and Osiris [3]
