Hi Danny

The Maya could only the Messier 42 'Orion' Nebula with the naked eye, though, and as I stated in my last post its nebulosity might appear only as "fuzzy" or like a wisp of smoke; there was no high definition, colour contrasting technology available to the Ancients such as the photographic images as taken with modern lens technology which you have posted in support of your hypothesis.

Also, my questions were directed at the associations you make in the post which begins this thread between Egypt and the Orion Nebula and also the topography and the Nebula, neither of which you have addressed or answered yet.

I am aware of Bauval's work on the Orion Constellation and the ground plan of the pyramids on the Giza plateau but you suggest that your research builds on this research ... I just want to know how and why you believe in the idea of the 'temple of Man' if the Orion Nebula was not visible to the Ancients with the kind of clarity which only by virtue of modern technology enables you to propose a correlation millennia later.

In anticipation of your answers to the questions posed in my previous post.

Eye :)
