We understand enough about astrophysics to send spacecraft orbiting other planets.
All of that knowledge is a scientific gauntlet in which theories such as this have to pass through the mathematics unscathed. Currently not the case, as of yet.
u’re right, Phage. Everything has a mundane explanation! Bright twinkly stars, in the night sky.... is the WHOLE reason the ancients, all over the separated planet — venerated the cosmos. Ummm okay.

There is no story about Orion and Artemis. Orion was the Egyptian god of the dead and Artemis was the Greek virgin goddess of the hunt.
Yes it is a story from Greek mythology. The short mythical story of Artemis is one of the famous legends that feature in the mythology of ancient civilizations.
It really is a lovlely story and worth a read.
Here is a link below. It will only take you a few minutes. :-)
This is the same stuff I was trying to show you earlier. It represents a period in time (Mithras crosses the bull - taurus). It is Kemetic in origin and later used by the Romans. It has over time been fully incorperated into Christianity. Much of what you see today comes from this.

Maybe there's magic involved? Maybe the spiritual density causes an attraction far greater than gravity.
More than four-fifths of the single points of light we observe in the night sky are actually two or more stars orbiting together. The most common of the multiple star systems are binary stars, systems of only two stars together. These pairs come in an array of configurations that help scientists to classify stars, and could have impacts on the development of life. Some people even think that the sun is part of a binary system.
You're aware that scholars disagree with your interpretaion? And that the hieroglyphs on the wall dispute your version? This site has a full catalog of the Dendera ceiling ... if you will search for "dipper" it'll hop right to the picture and the text there confirms what I've said (note that you'll probably have to dismiss the image first to see the long page of text. It's really long. REALLY long.) : paulsmit.smugmug.com...
Its really not that far fetched. And to think todays society is so "in the know" that it can wipe out thousands and thousands of years of science, culture and knowledge is unbelievably pig headed and arrogant.
Yes some might say we are actually living in a dark age. A different type of a dark age. One is which truth is kept hidden from us behind an information wall.
Look at you, the non-Mason using Pike's opinion as gospel for all Masons. Sorry, sweetie, the ritual we use in my jurisdiction was around before Pike was even born.
A technological dark age... Altho I think we've now come out of the Dark or Iron Age and moved into the Bronze Age - we're stepping back out of the darkness now... Hopefully!
