The Orion constellation is repeated in monuments throughout the ancient world and we have clues that long-lost civilizations may have had contact with travelers from this cluster of stars.
Astronomers usually refer to it as M42 and it is literally a stellar nursery. The Orion Constellation is one of the most prominent star formations in the night sky and has been revered by ancient cultures around the globe for thousands of years.
The ancient Egyptians believed that from Sirius and Orion came beings in the form of humans Osiris and Isis and instigated the human race.
The ancient Egyptians were very clear that Orion was linked with creation, specifically magic creation. Metaphorically, it very much matches what we know from astrophysics. We know that we are the product of stars, we’re literally made of stars.
Sirius and Orion are critically important because they represent Isis and Osiris, the god and goddess from which all of Egyptian civilization and, ultimately, all of human civilization, supposedly sprang.
According to the pyramid texts a collection of religious records carved into the walls of pyramids dating back to 2400 B.C. the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Unas ruled for 30 years before making his final voyage to the star system Orion.
Could the pharaoh Unas actually have traveled into space? If so, how?
Many say that the purpose of the Great Pyramid was not as a tomb, but rather as a sort of a womb of transformation. The pharaoh would enter into it as a man, and through the process of the technology that the pyramid is built for, the pharaoh is transformed into a god, so that now he is an ascended being who is capable of traveling into the stars, and also returning.
Is it possible that the pharaohs of ancient Egypt were able to travel back and forth to the stars of Orion by using the pyramids? According to ancient astronaut theorists, the proof can be found by examining an elaborate series of air shafts embedded within the Great Pyramid, air shafts that point directly to the stars of Orion and Sirius.
There is definitely a lot of scientific data that has shown that the pyramid and the entire Giza Plateau, the alignments of the air shafts and the king’s and the queen’s chamber, are all pointing to Orion.
In a desolate plain in the eastern region of the Sahara Desert, lies the mysterious archaeological site known as Nabta Playa.
Discovered by a team of scientists in 1974, researchers believe the megalithic stones scattered here were once part of a vast and complex ritual center for an ancient civilization that thrived from 6400 to 3400 B.C., just before the rise of the Egyptians.
The builders of Nabta Playa seem to be aware of a level of physics and understandings of mathematics that they interline into these structures which clearly say they possessed some advanced knowledge of the constellations.
Engineer Robert Bauval and astrophysicist Thomas Brophy have studied the configuration of this mysterious monument for more than ten years. In their book Black Genesis, they suggest the stone circle is a star-viewing diagram that aligns with the belt stars of Orion at the summer solstice.
Just 35 miles northeast of Mexico City lie the ruins of Teotihuacán. Researchers believe the impressive structures here including two large pyramids and a temple were built by the Mayans in the second century B.C., and like the Egyptian pyramids of Giza, the monuments point directly to the three stars of Orion’s Belt.
Another amazing site which has a direct connection to the Orion constellation is located in northeastern Arizona. Here the Native American Hopi tribe has called these peaks of the Colorado Plateau home for more than 1,000 years.
The Hopi migrated all over the Southwest and after a series of building villages and abandoning them, they came to these three primary mesas in Northern Arizona.They call them first, second and third mesas.
The Hopi mesas shape Orion’s Belt image and it is said that the Hopi specifically came here because of the shape, so we know for sure that the Hopi were extremely interested in Orion’s Belt and for them his was the center of their universe.
They have said it is a place where they can make contact with the gods and according to some researchers, not only do the three mesas represent the stars in Orion’s Belt, but when connected to other Hopi landmarks throughout the Southwest, the collective sites map the entire body of the Orion constellation.
Giza. Teotihuacán. Nabta Playa. Black Mesa. Could these ancient monuments, all aligned to the stars of Orion, really be linked to each other, providing clues to our celestial beginnings? Considering the Orion Nebula is a nursery of stars, is it possible the belt stars of Orion literally mark the spot in the galaxy where all life on Earth began?
