Although my work opens up the 'Orion' topic and takes it much further and in a different direction, I do have to say that I have the utmost respect for Robert Bauval's work since, after all, he did make the initial connection - the breakthrough - with the Giza pyramids and Orion's Belt. From that moment no one has ever seen the Pyramids in the same light again - they were no longer simply 'tombs' but something much, much more. Robert Bauval was the man who opened up this debate and we should all be grateful to him for doing that.



Not really, those were simply elaborations after Gerald Massey the Theosophist who in 1907 had set the framework for 10,500 Bc speculation by dating the Sphinx to the age of Leo 13,000 years previous;



The great Sphinx as keeper of these secrets was couched in mountainous repose upon the horizon in the eastern equinox, when the gate of ‘fair exit’ was in the lion-sign and the gate of ‘fair entrance’ was in Aquarius, the water-sign that is figured over the abyss of source on the celestial globe. The Sphinx then is a figure of the double horizon and the duality of Har-Makhu when the place of conjunction was at the point of precession in the lion-sign. And if, as is the Egyptian way, the fact was registered forthwith, we may date the Sphinx as a monument which was reared by these great builders and thinkers, who lived so largely out of themselves, some thirteen thousand years ago.




What Bauval did was elaborate upon this by noting Orion at it's lowest point at around 10,500 Bc in conjunction with Leo, a date which Schwaller de Lubicz had proposed for the Sphinx, and something the Theosophists had been already aware of. It was also Massey who saw Orion as the soul of Osiris;



The Gnosis had three phases--astronomical, spiritual, and doctrinal, and all three can be identified with the Christ of Egypt. In the astronomical phase the constellation Orion is called the Sahu or mummy. The soul of Horus was represented as rising from the dead and ascending to heaven in the stars of Orion.
