Or it might, if he hadn't gone on to suggest exactly the opposite.
(Lehner, Complete Pyramids, 1997, 106-7)
The formal symmetry of the pyramid complexes at Giza inspires many pyramid enthusiasts to look for more alignments, always with the suspicion of hidden meanings or lost treasures. A theory of Robert Bauval suggests that the Giza diagonal is inspired by the stars in the belt of the constellation Orion, which the Egyptians saw as a symbol of Osiris. But when the map of Orion is positioned over that of Giza and nearby pyramids, it is clear that there are stars in Orion for which there are no matching pyramids, and pyramids for which there are no stars in Orion, or any other constellation.
