How much DID astronomical bodies impact our ancestors as they built the various structures around the world? It's well known that the pyramids of the Giza plateau are placed in alignment with stars in Orion's belt. What may not be well known is that astronomers have questioned the date that Egyptologists and academia say the great Pyramid was built because the alignments of the stars in this configuration was not how they looked 4,500 years ago. The stars would have been in a straight line. In fact, you would have to go back around 10,500 years to find the stars in today's configuration. Whenever the pyramids were constructed, they obviously were placed to represent Orion's belt.
Further south in ancient Teotihuacan, Mexico the Avenue of the Dead is found in the same configuration. But some researchers theorize that this site is much more complex. I watched a television show that showed not only were these structures in line with Orion, but placing the Pyramid of the Sun in the center, they could trace outward to the correct relational distances and find each of our planets in the solar system represented by various structures. Meanwhile in Europe the "civilized society" still believed firmly that the Earth was the center of the universe and everything revolved around us.
This show theorized that the same could be said at Stonehenge in Great Britain. But try as I may, I don't see it and think it's more wishful thinking. I know that some people will find visions of things in tea leaves, bread, clouds, etc. It could all just be a strange coincidence, or wishful thinking, but some of this I just find too much of a stretch. However, what is well documented is the alignment to the rising of the sun on both the summer and winter solstices in Stonehenge. There are countless stonehenges around the world and other stone buildings that mark these important events.
In my opinion, our ancestors in many places were impacted by what they saw in the night sky, and they honored those heavenly bodies by building structures to emulate them. Ancient Alien theorists will tell you that's because we HAD to have come from here, or that alien races from those galaxies and had landed here and were worshiped by our ancestors. I think either theory is possible, but that the ancient aliens theory is just less likely. Like I said, Orion is very prominent and it still draws my attention. Why would our ancestors be any different?
In my next post, I'll be talking about things like frequency and vibration, and how different things might be for a society who were masters of sound. Until then, take care!
