"Synchronizing the first two stars—Alnitak and Alnilam—with the peaks of the Great Pyramid and Second Pyramid, respectively, was easily done. Yet it revealed that there was no match between the third star, Mintaka, and the peak of the Third Pyramid. Indeed, when overlaid in this manner, with all the offset placed on the Third Pyramid, Mintaka did not even hit the pyramid, but instead fell slightly beyond its west side. The results of this simple exercise disappointed Hale." Page 106 . . THE CYGNUS KEY By Andrew Collins
This might have an explanation.
And you may already possess, from the ruins of Nabta Playa, the means of checking the math of stellar motion against the math of our galactic motion and the movement of the Earth within it.
What makes these images in the stars work ?? . . . Vast, vast distance. These stellar teachings would not endure except for the great distances involved. Yet, we are moving at hundreds of thousands of miles per hour and some of these stats are moving faster yet.
At Nabta Playa did they not mark out, on the ground the main asterisms and stars important to this culture, and also give a very good measure on their movement?
Cygnus is nearly a polar star asterism, has been a pole star. Orion is not, that I know of. Was Orion ever, a polar asterism?
Anyway, not being polar Orion will have greater proper motion within the field of view of the sky from Earth.
How fast is the Mentaka star moving, and how far back in time was the site of Giza placed?
I think it was in existence as a revered site during the age of the Shem Shu Hor, --- if not significantly before that time.
Sitchin says the Anunakki were involved. I know, no credence here, but it is a possibility.
Some think the Anunakki were also the ancient G^ds of India. (???)
1.) How far might Mentaka have moved relative to the other belt stars?
2.) And might this movement give us another fix for a date of the very early and certainly pre-dynastic ages of Egypt?
Put another way . . . .
3.) Given that star's motion . . . Was there 'ever' a time when it would line up exactly?
(If this is 10,500 bc, big toast! . . Not far enough back, however, I think.)
It's a mind boggling question . . . And instead of Star Globe, or Starry Night, --- ask the fellow who figured out Nabta Playa!
The one who gave us that video on the beach . .
There is another item regarding Mentaka, and the small pyramid. . . (imvho) it is the "remake" (Reborn Star). It is like Horus from Osirus. It is the 90° turn in the energy flow where another perfect formation of the original, fractal form can re-manifest.
Not an egg, not a fetus (as we see in the Orion nebula very clearly).
A formed pyramid, like a formed child. A celebration of actual rebirth, and it is on the fibinachi curve.
The three small outlying pyramids at the GP are at 90° to the three at the little pyramid. 90° turn. Not to be overlooked.
The dead soul becomes an ankh (sp), it gains life. Perhaps when it reaches Orion in the heavens?
It becomes equipped for rebirth.
Then it journoes to it's ancestors.
There is clearly visible the form of an embryo in the nebula within the Orion Asterism!
The great man, the great hunter, holding the hero twons in one arm and the age of Leo towards Tarus (Pleiades) in the other arm, confirs life for rebirth? . . . . . . Perhaps?
In nature this rebirthing is always a downsize, progeny are small and must grow.
I would not even be surprised if this ratio of sizes is mirrorred in the monuments, as well.
Mind is the rider.
