The earliest Obelisks were known as ‘benben’ stones.
They were rough hewn and truncated, but they were tipped off by the pyramidion shape
which distinguishes obelisks from other monumental columns.
The spirit of the sun god was supposed to enter the stones at certain periods, and on these occasions human sacrifices were offered to it.
Pan, the goat god and god of sensuality, was often represented as an obelisk. A former witch writes ‘The obelisk is a long pointed four sided shaft, the uppermost portion of which forms a pyramid. The word ‘obelisk’ literally means ‘Baal’s shaft’ or Baal’s organ of reproduction’
To understand why the obelisk is so important to masons one has to understand the Masonic version of Egyptian mythology behind their rituals.
Osiris was a king of Egypt who married his sister Isis. His brother ‘Set’ wished to usurp the throne and so plotted his death. Set stole his body and tore it into fourteen pieces, which he scattered throughout Egypt to prevent Osiris coming to life again. Isis recovered all but one of the pieces – the penis – and gave Osiris a fit burial. Their son, Horus, avenged him by slaying Set.
From this it is a small step to the conclusion that the benben or obelisk was itself a phallic symbol. Whether of osiris , Re or fertility in
general, it was a symbol of fatherhood ‘The rock that begot ’
