Punt is where humans of the homo sapiens species originated. Thus, Punt, of inner Africa, is the Holy Land.
Ta-nuter Is Ta-neter“The Egyptians also preserved traditions of Ta-nuter, the holy land that was known by the name of Punt or Puanta...The name is applied to the land of dawn, or anta, as the golden = the land of gold.” (1)(2)
Punt Is Two Holy Lands, Geographical & Mythological“It was reported that in a remote region south you came to an unknown great water which bathed Puanta. This, we suggest, was that nearest and largest of all the African lakes, now called the Victoria Nyanza, from which the river Nile debouches on its journey north. We gather from the inscriptions of Der-el-Bahari that the inhabitants of that Puanta were lake-dwellers.”(3) “In the story of the shipwrecked sailor the speaker says of his voyage: “I was going to the mines of Pharaoh, in a ship that was 150 cubits long and 40 cubits wide, with 150 of the best sailors in Egypt.” He was shipwrecked on an island, which turned out to be in the land of Puanta. The serpent ruler of the island says to the sailor: “I am prince of the land of Puanta.” (4) “Puanta, as a geographical locality, is said to lie next to the spirit world, or the land of the shades, which is spoken of as being in the south, but as far away as sailors could go up-stream; in fact, it was where the celestial waters came from heaven at the sources of the Nile. This surely means that Puanta, the gold land, was at the summit of this world, and therefore closest to the next, where there was nothing but the firmamental water betwixt them and the islands of the blessed.” (5) “The earliest Ta-Neter or holy land of the Egyptians, then, was Puanta in the south, which was sacred on account of its being the primeval home. But in the mythos the place of coming forth had been given to the sun god in the east, and this became the holy land in the solar mythology which has been too hastily identified by certain Egyptologists with Arabia as the eastern land.” (6)
Massey goes on to say, “Puanta or Punt is identical with the orient in the mythos [the East] . But the land of Puanta is also geographical, and there was an Egyptian tradition that this divine country could be reached by ascending the river Nile.” (7)
Per Renouf, “When it is said that gods ' come from Punit,' it is not meant by this that they are of Arabian origin, but simply that Sun Moon, and Stars, and Daylight rise in the East.” (8)
Variations Of Spellings & LocationsIn addition to the spelling variations of Punt in this message, there are many more I decline to list. Some, I suspect, are from the misinformationists. Punt seems most accurate. Once we remove the vowels from the many different spellings of Punt and convert “u” back to “w”, we usually end up with (pwnt). Punt is the point (pwnt) of origin. Both Ta-nuter and Ta-neter could be accurate. First of all, Ta-nuter as the Land of the Waters of Nu, The Creator God, The NETER of the Neters, The One of the Many. Second of all, Ta-neter as the Land of the Gods who were born out of the Waters Of Nu. Thus, Ta-nuter and Ta-neter designate the names of the parents first and the offspring second who both came from the same place, live in same place and whose land is the same place. Call it by the parent's name or call it by the children's name. As usual, much confusion is offered concerning the location of Punt. Punt, as a location on Earth, is just like all other places on Earth. Punt is a location within a location, just as Africa is within Earth with Solar System, within Galaxy... Therefore, Punt can be a large area consisting of thousands of miles extending radially in all directions from the Great Lake Nyanza. At the same time Punt could have been part of Ethiopia because at times, Ethiopia consisted of all of Eastern Africa from bottom to top and included significant portions of Asia. Thus, what was then Punt, can now be parts of Ethiopia, Somalia, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Kongo, Kenya, Tanganyika, Rwanda and Burundi. Go back to the map and facts about Africa, linked at the top of this message. Understand clearly the vastness of Africa.
Concerning the Great Lake Nyanza, the water by itself, is over 26,000 square miles* of fresh water, not including the many freshwater streams flowing in and out of Nyanza. There was food and water and other resources all around. A tropical paradise of abundance that was already fruitful in order to serve the fruitful multiplying of humans and also fuel their creative genetic potential genius. Isn't that exactly what happened for hundreds of thousands of years before this recent period of overwhelming imbalance? Because the primitive originating essence of spirit-soul and matter is still intact in the Above and Below, it is a very good thing that the imbalanced logic users cannot pinpoint the location of the Holy Of Holies which is Punt.

(2) “The name Punt or Puanta was applied in the Ritual (ch. 15).” The Egyptian Book of the Dead was termed "The Ritual" by Champollion, a convention followed by Massey and others but since abandoned.
”Lepsius gave to this work the name of Todteiibuch, " Book of the Dead," in opposition to the name of " Ritual " adopted by Champollion, which is certainly incorrect. It is no Ritual . On the whole the Book of the Dead differs widely from a Ritual. ”

Several of these States will fit inside Lake Nyanza at the same time with room to spare. Some historians indicate the water level of the Hapy River was higher in earlier times. Thus must also mean the water in the Great Lakes Region was even more abundant and was higher and/or covered a wider area.
