I was pretty sure that the sumerian Babylonian knot of life and the Ankh had the same meaning ? ( can't really remember its a long time since i read about this )
Isn't Was also the symbol of power in the Chakra system connected to manifestation and root ?

Many gods were depicted with a was-sceptre, among them Ptah who was often shown holding it,[13] or a sceptre combining the was and the djed.[14] Sopdu often had a was,[15] as did Re,[16] and the Canaanite god Reshef,[17] Osiris, whose mummy is at times depicted sprouting corn, is resting on the ground, which in its turn is supported by was and ankh signs.[18] The god Benu in his anthropomorphic form carried the sceptre occasionally.[19] Seth too wielded the was at times, giving rise to speculations that the top of the sceptre was a representation of the head of the Seth-animal.[25] In the fight between Seth and Horus for supremacy over Egypt Seth's main weapon was a mace or a was sceptre only he was strong enough to handle.[20]
    Goddesses too are depicted with the was: Hathor,[21] Neith,[22] and Satis.[23] The Egyptian name of Thebes was Waset, which was written with a was hieroglyph, to which a feather and a streamer had been added.[24] Waset generally carries this decorated was on her head.
