I think the best explanation of the stars mentioned is symbolic for the sky-realm of shamanism. As I've commented elsewhere in this thread the stars of Orion and Sirius, which are so frequently mentioned, occupy the same sky region as viewed from earth but are in fact hundreds of light years apart. My comment in that other post was as follows:

"Shamans (and – eg – the ancient Egyptians and other ancient cultures) associate the world of spirits with the sky and stars. The ancient Egyptian Duat is an excellent example of such, being associated with a specific region of the sky. But we do not have to conclude from this that physical beings like us but with higher tech came here in nuts-and-bolts spaceships from that sky region. Indeed Sirius and the stars of Orion (which seem close together in the sky as viewed from earth) both feature in the ancient Egyptian Duat, but are in fact hundreds of light years apart. Since this is so, the case for nuts-and-bolts-spaceship-travellers-from-BOTH-Sirius-and-Orion seems most unlikely in the physical sense. Is it safer to conclude that our ancient teachers came here BOTH from Sirius and Orion, despite the gigantic distances between these two star systems, or that we are dealing with some kind of symbolic representation of a level or reality that is not of this earth (a parallel dimension perhaps) and which should not be reduced to facile materialistic referents?"
