In The Orion Mystery, Robert Buaval presents an alternative and compelling interpretation of the Giza Pyramid known as the Giza Pyramid Orion Correlation Theory which when combined with the Ancient Astronaut Theory may link the Giza Pyramids to a past Alien Civiization.
The Giza Pyramids Correlation To Orion Constellation
Unlike other Pyramids like the ones at Saqqara, there are no inscriptions inside the Giza Pyramids. In Buaval’s opinion this is an anomaly and presents a challenge in understanding the true purpose of the Giza Pyramid.
Buaval suggests that one of the tools available in helping us understand the purpose of the Giza Pyramid are the inscriptions found in other Pyramids which explain the purpose of each Pyramid structure.
The Pyramid Texts found at Saqqara are useful in that they provide us with insight into Ancient Egyptian Religious beliefs that may be useful in understanding the Giza Pyramids.
After an examination of the Pyramid Texts, Buaval claims that a portrait of what has been termed an Egyptian ‘Star Religion’ appears in which the resurrected Pharaoh goes on a Spiritual journey to the Constellation of Orion to rejoin the Ancestors after completing his sojourn through the underworld or Duat.
In Buaval’s view, its from the Pharaoh’s final destination in the Constellation Of Orion that we can get an understanding of the purpose of the Giza Pyramid.
There are 3 main reasons which Buaval uses to connect the Giza Pyramid with the Orion Constellation supporting idea that the Giza Pyramids are a replica of the 3 Stars making up Orion’s Belt.
Firstly, the Pyramids are all pointed towards the Milky Way, the Galaxy in which Orion’s Belt is located.
In addition, the smallest Pyramid of the 3 Pyramids making up the Giza Complex is misaligned in a way that matches the arrangement of the 3 Stars making up the Orion Constellation.
Buaval also questions whether its mere coincidence that the Giza Pyramid Complex and the Sphinx would have been aligned with Orion’s Belt in 10, 450 BC.
Last but not least, is the question of the unexplained Pyramid Shafts which coincidentally all point in the direction of Orion.
All in all, Buaval concludes that this set of coincidences suggests that the Giza Pyramid was constructed as a Projection Portal for the Pharaoh’s Soul to the home of the Ancestors in the Orion Constellation as stated in the most Ancient Egyptian Religious Texts found in the Pyramid Texts at Saqqara.
On this basis Buaval claims it would seem more plausible to regard the Pyramids as a functional replica of the Pharaoh’s Ancestral Home in the 3 stars of Orion’s belt rather than a symbol meant only to celebrate the Pharaoh’s Imperial Majesty.
Buaval’s Orion Correlation Theory is not accepted by mainstream Archaeology, and the arguments against it which you can read here, include the suggestion that the Pyramids are actually properly aligned and not misaligned to mirror the 3 stars of Orion’s Belt as suggested by Buaval.
Nevertheless, in The Orion Mystery we are presented with an alternative interpretation that appears to tie in the loose ends in ways in which the mainstream view does not.
Furthermore, given that Buaval’s interpretation is based on the Pyramid Texts which the Ancient Astronaut Theory has argued are a re-telling of the History Of The Alien Gods Of Ancient Egypt, then the origins of the Egyptian belief in the Pharaoh’s resurrection and afterlife journey to Orion can be understood from Osiris’ resurrection by Isis during the First Egyptian Pyramid War.
Buaval’s account therefore enables an understanding of the Giza Pyramid that is consistent with the as yet unacknowledged History of the Alien Ancient Astronaut Gods of Egypt which is presently treated as mythological.
Ultimately, the Giza Pyramid Complex is both an enigma and a marvel, and the featured documentary The Revelation of The Pyramids is a thrilling exploration of the Giza Pyramid enigma.
