If they built it at this time and this is where Thuban was they would have little choice other than to align it this way. Also, as I said before, an interesting thought is this "divine angle" as it were was derived at Abydos/Thinis which the celestial pole would have been c. 26.5. And, again, its not a "nearby star", just "any 'ol star" as you keep trying to make it out to be, its the pole star. This is significant.

No, I don't as the causeways were set at this angle to achieve a certain rise and run and have no implied stellar function regardless. You are attempting to create a circular argument that if we apply this logic to one set therefore it must apply to all which depending on their function there is no reason to believe they were designed for the same purpose.
And the only reason why you make these arguments is because once again it implies a date you do not want. If the LC built the pyramids hundreds of thousands of years ago do you not think it possible they too used stellar markers to align the pyramids and DP? Regardless of when, it seems obvious they did.

Its the closest fixed point to sight a line.

Then you understand the point I make above about the causeways.

Like this you mean:
There are many aspects of the construction of G1 in particular that are seen to encode certain "sacred geometry", calendrical data, earth measures, ect which coupled with the extreme precision of some aspects of its construction imply they did little by accident which would include the various angles of the shafts and passages. While some of this may in fact just be practical, again, the DP is a feature found in all the great pyramids, aligned in the same direction towards the celestial pole with roughly the same angle in which all are aligned to the cardinal points with G1 in particular being unusually accurate for the latter. It is more than coincidence or just its size and scope that G1 inspires the imagination the way it does.
> So, do you prefer Orion over Cygnus?
Sorry, for what? Without even knowing what your point is I would automatically choose Orion because this is favored not just by the AE but all ancient cultures. Anyone can look up at the sky anywhere in the world and see it sticking out like a sore thumb so it is no wonder why ancient peoples would have been fascinated by it.
