Collin Andrews made a rather astounding discovery back in 2008. It was astounding for the establishment Egyptologists and for the alternative community as well. What did he discover? He discovered that a long cherished belief held by both groups was dead wrong.
It has long been believed by Egyptologists and alternative thinkers that the layout of the Giza Plateau matched the three big stars of Orion's belt. Documentaries have been produced that key on this fact, books have been written about it, and Ph.D. degrees have been earned based on dealing with this fact. Oooops! It wasn't really a fact. after all.
The layout of the three pyramids on Giza Plateau does resemble the belt of Orion, but Collin Andrews discovered that it doesn't match exactly. In fact, when a star map of Orion is overlain on an aerial photo of the three pyramids, a rather disturbing discrepancy becomes very visible. Two of those stars rest directly on the tops of two pyramids, but the third star misses the third pyramid. It doesn't land on the pyramid at all.
With the tremendous precision (unmatched in most modern construction) that these three pyramids were built, with which the Giza Plateau was laid out, it seemed to Mr. Andrews to be inconceivable that the builders could have missed the accurate placement of that third pyramid. So, he wondered if there was any other constellation that matched the layout of the pyramids with precision. He didn't have to wonder long. He discovered that the constellation Cygnus matches the Giza Plateau's layout precisely.
In the above photo, the stars of Orion are shown as green circles. The stars of Cygnus are shown as red circles. You can see dlearly that the Orion star pattern does not precisely match the pyramids while the Cygnus star pattern does.
Furthermore, Andrews noted that at every place where there was a star of Cygnus in the overlay, there was some type of major structure. That is, except for the star named Deneb. Where Deneb strikes the Giza Plateau in the overlay, there was nothing. No pyramid, no temple, now building of any kind. So, he conjectured that there had to be something major underground at that spot.
In 2010, Dr. Zahi Hawass, Minister of Antiquites in Egypt, announced that he had discovered the tomb of Osiris. Osiris was a major god of ancient Egypt right up until Christianity began to take over in Egypt. He was the god of the underworld, and the god of resurrection and new life.
It has long been a point of debate among scholars, this thing about mythology. Some assume that all mythology is fiction. Others assume there is a kernel of truth wraped up in the mythology. In other words, some scholars would hold that while there is much fiction to the myths about Osiris, it is likely that a person named Osiris actually existed. Did he?
Hawass uncovered the tomb of Osiris, and found a 9 ft. long sarcophagus inside. Interestingly, there are photos that show the workers lifting the sarchophagus from the lower pit in which it rested to the level where the workers were standing. There are photos that show them preparing to lift the lid of the sarchophagus. But apparently, not a single photo has been released that shows the inside of that sarchophagus at the moment the lid was removed. There is a photo that shows the inside of the sarchophagus later, but not at that instant when the lid was removed. Why?
Dr. Hawass said later that the sarchophagus was empty when the lid came off. But was it? This is not to imply that Hawass was lying, but it does seem more than odd that there are photos of all the work leading up to taking the lid off the sarchophagus, but no concurrent photo of what was seen inside the instant the lid came off.
That, of course, leaves open the possibility that the mummy of Osiris (the first known mummy) was inside. Since the ancients who first wrote of Osiris claimed he was of divine birth and not from this planet, the possibility is open that the mummy of Osiris might prove to be the mummy of an extraterrestrial. Of course, it just would not do for that kind of information to get out. So, according to this theory, the public was kept from seeing the photos of the inside of the sarchophagus at the instant the lid was removed, and the story was put out that the sarchophagus was empty.
This would be just fanciful theorizing if there were not some supporting evidence. Is there? Well, maybe. The evidence is very circumstantial, but also very suggestive.
On March 7, 2009, NASA launched the Kepler Space Telescope into an orbit just behind the Earth. It follows the Earth in its orbit around the sun. The cost of its 3.5 year mission is estimated to be around $600 million. It's mission is to search for earth-like planets and identify any that appear to be habitable.
Since it's mission is to look for other Earths, you would assume it would be looking all around space for them. After all, the more sky you cover, the better your chances of success--right? Well, it would seem to be a correct idea--unless you already know where there are a bunch of these planets. If you already know where you are likely to have success, you would aim the telescope at that spot in space and keep it there.
Guess what? That is precisely what the mission controllers of Kepler have done. They aimed it like a laser on the constellation Cygnus! Why?
The official explanation is that by aiming at Cygnus, they don't have to worry about our sun obscurring the telescope with its immense light and energy. But, the Kepler craft is movable and could be repositioned to take care of any problems with the sun. So, it really could be used to look all around space for other Earths. It isn't. It is focused on Cygnus and only on Cygnus.
The Kepler mission hit the jackpot!
In its first 6 months of operation, Kepler found an additional 1,235 extra-solar planets. We already knew about some 500 extra-solar planets, but Kepler upped the number by an additional 1,235. Of that number, 408 are in multi-planet solar systems like ours. In fact, Kepler has located 170 such multi-planet solar systems in Cygnus. Of the 408 planets in these multi-planet solar systems, Kepler has found some 50 that are habitable!
Officially, these discoveries are called planet candidates. That term is used by naysayers to deflect the importance of these discoveries. Planet candidates means they are actual discoveries, but need to be verified by other scientists as well. They still are actual discoveries. So, the finding of some 50 habitable planets has happened. The data will be reviewed by other scientists for verification, but the discoveries have happened.
The ancient Egyptians wrote about their ancestors (even more anceint than they, of course) and said they were cannibals, barbaric, uncivilized, and unlearned. They were ruled by a god named Ra at the time. Ra built mighty structures, but did nothing to improve these savages. When Ra became old, he left Earth and returned to the heavens. Osiris (whose parents were not human) ascended to the kingship of the land. Osiris, the green skinned god, was greatly distrubed by the complete lack of civilization and learning of these humans, and set about establishing civilization.
Osiris taught the people what to eat (not each other), and taught them agriculture, writing, how to worship the gods, and established law. In a fairly short time, he had established the first Egyptian civilization, and the people prospered.
Now, if Osiris was from among these savages, one must wonder how it is that this one person from among savage cannibals would have come by such knowledge. How did he come by knowledge of agriculture, writing, and law? It would seem sociologically impossible. But remember, the ancient Egyptians who told of Osiris were setting him and his clan apart from the humans. They recognized him as being other than the humans.
It is at least interesting that the tomb of Osiris was located directly under where the star Deneb (of the Cygnus constellation) strikes the Giza Plateau. It is interesting because it rather indicates that the fact that the Giza Plateau and the constellation Cygnus match is not an accident. Not only does the constellation Cygnus match the layout of the pyramids, but it marks the precise spot where Osiris' tomb lay deep under the ground.
What if the ancient Egyptians were correct in what they wrote about Osiris' origins? What if he was not from here, but from the heavens? What if NASA knew for quite some time that the Giza Plateau matched Cygnus and not Orion? What if NASA knew for quite some time that the stories about Osiris' origin were true
It would indicate that NASA made the reasonable assumption that since Osiris was not from Earth, but lived on Earth, he must have come from an earth-like planet somewhere out there in space. It would also indicate they reasoned that if there was Osiris (and his wife Isis, and Thoth, and Set) from out there, then there were likely still others of their kind out there. But where was out there? The answer to that question was laid out on the Giza Plateau in the form of a star map of their home worlds. Cygnus.
Indeed, this is a theory making a far stretch, but not an unreasonable one. NASA aimed Kepler with laser precision at Cygnus and plan for it to stay that way for 3.5 years. Why? What is it that made them make that decision? Their story about avoiding interference from our sun just does not hold up when one realizes the Kepler telescope can be repositioned at any time they desire to do so. The Kepler mission was aimed at Cygnus from before the first bolt was milled. Why? The Giza Plateau seems to provide an interesting and possible answer.
What does NASA know?
