I've read some of the Arabic accounts and I didn't see anything that could be interpreted as what you've said. I am always interested in old stories of the pyramids and am wondering where you found a tale of falling stars marks the spot. It sounds like it's your interpretation of something? Yet you said it came from Masoudi? Very confusing Laird, would you please explain because I would really like to see another story of falling stars, being the catastrophist that I am.
My reference comes out of a book called Sacred Wisdom by Gyeorgos C.Hatonn.
I realized early in the process of my studies that one of the biggest threats to any interpretation is the researcher's own wishfulness. The human brain is arguably "wired" to perceive patterns, even when no pattern actually exists. So a rule I apply is that interpretations begin with a clear statement on the part of the culture being studied. That statement can be tested against the beliefs of other cultures who share similar concepts or practices, and bring us to a consensus of how the issue was seen. Masoudi is not among the more reliable reference sources, because the statements came down to us differently in different cultures, and that leaves lots of wiggle-room for argument. The Sakti references, which parallel Egyptian myths of Osiris, are clearer.
