The Giza Alignment

Recent history that was discussed with the “Atlantis discussion” comes with Robert Bauval. The three main Pyramids of Egypt at Giza are arranged proximity to each other, and he was curious about the lack of symmetry in the layout. And there was some reason for why they were aligned in the way that is now seen, but try as he might draw different diagrams or to connect them together with straight lines but nothing seemed to fit. In the end finally he looked up at the constellation of Orion, which has three stars that forms the middle section, referred to as the “belt.”

The Pyramids of Giza were configured in the same manner as the “belt” of Orion, and quickly proved his point by overlaying the site maps of the Pyramids and the star maps of Orion’s belt on top of each other.

Each Pyramid in the proper position has the relative sizes and colors of the Pyramids were directly proportional to the magnitudes and colors of the stars in Orion’s belt. (The Cheops and Khefren pyramids were both originally covered in white limestone and are approximately the same size, like the two main stars in the belt, whereas the Menkaure pyramid is significantly smaller and was originally encased in red granite, like the dimmer and redder third star.)

As Bauval continued to investigate he realized the architects of Giza had created a perfect duplication of the starry heavens on Earth – an idea that fit in perfectly with their concept of the connection between the physical world and the Duat, or spiritual world.

All of the land, including the nearby Nile River, seems to harmoniously factored into the design. And the position of the Nile River relative to the Pyramids was identical to the position of the Milky Way relative to Orion’s belt in the starry night sky. Further Pyramids near Giza seemed to suggest that several other significant stars of Orion and the nearby Hyades constellation were immortalized in stone on the Earth as well.

Robert Bauval’s Comparison of Orion/Milky Way with Giza/Nile

By far, the most important aspect of Bauval’s was that the Giza complex was built to be time-encoded, utilizing a natural, slow movement of the Earth known as precession.

The precession is observable here on Earth as an apparent shift of the positions of the stars in the sky by one degree every seventy-two years this means if you were to choose a set night each year such as the Equinox the Sun is perfectly aligned with the Earth’s equator, and measure the positions of all stars in the sky for that night, after 72 years they will have drifted one degree out of alignment. Over a much longer period of time this creates an apparent circular motion in the heavens, which will gradually change the location of the North Star as well as all other constellations.

And so, by using a program known as Skyglobe, Bauval realized that the only “recent” time that the Milky Way would be perfectly aligned with the Nile River was roughly 12,500 years ago. At that time, and only at that time, (unless you were willing to go back to over 30,000 years ago,) one could stand on Earth and observe the Pyramids and Nile River at a distance, and watch the Nile connect directly into the Milky Way and the stars of Orion’s belt perfectly reflect the positions of the terrestrial pyramids. It was clear that Bauval had found a time capsule, an encoded matrix of information designed to show the exact time that the entire complex was first designed and planned.
