“The Seven Worlds" by Daniel Pemberton. In conjuction with Ridley Scott. For Henessy X.O. Brandy.
Before Donna made her decision to dust off, we had been talking about
going to Egypt. She wanted to be there one last time. Of all the places
she had visited in the world, Egypt was the place that captivated her.
When she wrote: "take me to Egypt" I knew what she meant. She had said over our last dinner, joking: "Looks like you'll have to see Egypt for me. And bury me there.
I want to see the stars".
One of the most studied constellations by ancient cultures thousands of
years ago is the constellation of Orion. Throughout the ancient world,
from Egypt to Mexico this constellation has been the center of the skies
for our ancestors.
Why are monuments, such as the Pyramids of Egypt mapped in such a way that these constructions mimic the skies?
Why was Orion so important? And why is it that so many monuments and structures on earth correlate with the position or movements of stars and constellations like Orion?
Orion is without a doubt one of the most prominent constellations in the sky. It is best seen between latitudes 85 and -75 degrees.
Its right ascension is 5 hours, and its declination is 5 degrees. Alnilam, Mintaka, and Alnitak, which form Orion’s belt, are the most prominent stars in the Orion constellation.
Betelgeuse, the second brightest star in Orion, establishes the right shoulder of the hunter. Bellatrix serves as Orion’s left shoulder.
The Orion Nebula—a formation of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gasses rather than a star—is the middle “star” in Orion’s sword, which hangs off of Orion’s Belt. The Horsehead Nebula is also nearby.
While numerous other stars and constellations were crucial for ancient
cultures around the globe, Orion was among the most important.
As above so below, the Pyramids of Giza mimic with a fascinating precision the three most important stars of the constellation of Orion. Were the ancient builders of the Pyramids trying to tell us something?
As it turns out, there is a mysterious correlation between the three main stars of the Constellation of Orion and the three main pyramids of the Giza plateau.
The pyramids at Giza are considered by many as the most mysterious structures
ever built on Earth. They are both perplexing and mysterious and are a
perfect example of sacred alignment since they form a what many believe
is a three-dimensional map of the three main stars of Orion on the ground.
As it turns out, the builders of the Pyramids made sure to mimic the constellation as best as they could which is why when the Pyramids were built, the brightness and location of the three main stars of Orion was something that the builders took into account: The two leger Pyramids of the Giza plateau line up ‘perfectly’ with two of Orion’s stars, while the smaller pyramid of Menakure clearly follows the third star of Orion with a slight offset.
Orion is perhaps the most recognizable of all constellations, and as well as containing two of the night sky’s brightest stars, Rigel and Betelgeuse, it also straddles the celestial equator, meaning that it can be seen throughout most of the world, except near to the planet’s polar extremities. It is no wonder, then, that this picturesque constellation containing several asterisms has been revered since ancient times and has various colorful myths associated with it.
