Looks like it means what it looks like. Division.

Both symbols are used in the US, but the first one (I don't even know how to make it) is mostly used in elementary arithmetic texts.

it's a hebrew letter pronounced "kouf", like "k".
my keyboard is hebrew and english that's why i could type the letter.

any thoughts about the paradox?

The first site says
The Earth's axis does not gyrate around the pole of the ecliptic. In the period Tprec the Sun, together with the Earth and its Moon, revolves around a reference star that would play the role of a central sun to our entire solar system
This is bunk, probably from some wing of astrology. The precession of the equinoxes is precisely due to what this text denies, the wobble of the Earth's axis over time. There is no "reference star".

I think the reference star that was spoken of was any very far away star that could serve as a reference point. However I too have skepticism about these claims because the numbers and math introduced are not explained and reminds me of numberology and astrology too.
