Thuban, which may have served as the north star...
Thuban was likely the axis around which all the other stars appeared to spin at night...
Assumption based upon Kate Spence's calculations: Thuban passed within 0.1° of the pole in 2800 BC etc. etc.
Today, the North Star is Polaris...
"Likely" & "may" being the buttresses to the house of cards. The solo celestial aspect, respective former GP alignments as well as being contemporary with our era, is the pole of the ecliptic - a location in Heaven, unmarked by celestial object. It shares a unique characteristic with a meridian -- associated with the Orion Constellation -- in alignment with the GC on two occasions.
The gyration of Earth's Polar axis, consequent with true Polar wander in a circle of 72° diameter, is non-concentric respective the EclipticPole. Some 800 years subsequent to encountering Vega and with commencement of the past quarter of precession around 4500 BC, Earth's axis regained 26° obliquity - what I contend to be the equivalent oposite, at the conclusion thereof in the current era. The slope angle of the descending passage would be reconcilable therewith. The star Rastaban (beta Draconis), was encountered roughly midway en-route to 1250 BC - at which time the parabolic path of the North Pole came to within 14° perigee of the EP.
Thus a landmark occasion, min. obliquity coincided with one of two diametrically opposed equinoxes and wherefrom Earth is in process of tipping... The path of the Pole is not paralell with the ecliptic plane - the means whereby 58° obliquity is incurred at apogee. GlacialMax. being the product -- the antonym equinox 14210 BC -- concurrent with 2x180° precession rotation, again due in 11710 AD
(perplexing concepts to express, I hope it reads clearer post edit :)
