I've been enjoying Engbren's thread. Susan Morrow has a similar theory which I believe deserves far more attention than Egyptology is willing to give it. The simple fact is Egyptology can entertain no notion outside of its comfort zone and this comfort zone is remarkably narrow. Despite the fact that the Pyramid Texts specifically says that "the king is a star" and specifically says "the king is a pyramid" they believe he ascended to the stars and the pyramid was his tomb!!! What hubris to ignore every single thing said by the pyramid builders!!!

I believe the "book of the dead" was written by moribund and highly superstitious people just like us but the Pyramid Texts and some of the Coffin Texts were not. Some of the CT appears to be written in the same "stellar' language in which the Pyramid Texts are written.

If I'm right all this is just confusion of ancient knowledge.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
