Ogy: Yes but Scott looked for Orion and he found it.
SC: With respect, Ogy, but I didn't have to look far to find Orion. It was right there on the plateau.
The point here is that the Belt stars can create three bases whose proportions agree very well indeed with what we find at Giza. Now, just because we can design our three bases using the Belt stars (or any any other triad of stars) does not mean we actually have to place the bases on the ground in the precise manner they were created or even remotely like the triad of stars from whence they were created. We could just as easily design the bases from the three dots (stars) and then just lay out the proportional bases in any old manner we like. Giza, for example, could have been laid out in a straight line, each pyramid twisted so many degrees from north with the smallest pyramid in the middle. Their relative dimensions, however, would still be linked to the Belt stars. But how would we ever know which stars to try and reverse-engineer the dimensions if they had just been laid out higgelty-piggelty?
The way you do it is to create your three bases using your chosen triad asterism and then place your bases on the ground as precisely as you possibly can in the pattern of the asterism that created those bases. That is what we have at Giza and it proves, beyond any reasonable doubt, that the Gizamids were created from the Belt star asterism.
If you have difficulty in believing this then try this little challenge:
Get three friends to each draw a random square or rectangle on a piece of card. Cut-out these three squares/rectangles. These are your three random bases. Carefully mark the centre of each of the cut-out bases with a black pen.
Now scatter your three cards (bases) randomly to the floor. Observe the pattern made by the three centres of these three cards. You may move one of the bases fractionally in any direction. (Afterall, G2 is not exactly in its proper location in the Belt asterism on the ground at Giza, so fair's fair).
Now, using these three centres, follow the procedure outlined in the Giza-Orion Blueprint and try and recreate your three bases in the order and rotation they have fallen and in the shape and proportions they have been made by your three friends. (You might find it helpful to photograph the arrangement with a digital camera, upload the image into Powerpoint or some other application and attempt the procedure that way. Saves a lot of time crawling about the floor).
If the first arrangement of the centres doesn't produce a match in orientation, order, shape and proportion to the three bases created by your three friends then throw your three card bases to the floor again - and repeat. Keep repeating until you find a match. What you will quickly realise, is that you would not have enough life-times to find such a match.
And yet, as I said above, this is almost precisely what we have at Giza! If the Gizamids had been defined in the manner I propose in my presentation but had been laid out on the Giza plateau, say, in a straight east-west line and in a different order and orientation, it would have been infinitely more difficult for me - or anyone - to discover this simple technique or to find the correct star asterism used to achieve those proportions. However, the fact that the builders actually laid down the Gizamids in pretty much the same way that their proportions, shapes and orientations were designed helped immensely to discovering the technique and the correct star asterism that was used to define their relative size and layout.
When you can come back with a match in your attempt at this, then and ONLY THEN will you have any grounds to claim "I looked for Orion and found it". Incidentally, the odds against you succeeding in this challenge are something in the order of 280 TRILLION to one!
