Violater1: As I look at the Sphenix, it reminds me of a dog. So I can't help wonder, that when 12/21 (or is ti 23?)2012 arrives, the SWHTF when the sphenix's eyes come into line with the rising of the Dog Star, Sirius.
I'm not very knowledgeable of the program"Stellarium", but I think you can add into your own coordinates (the Sphinx) and be able to calculate the time when Sirius becomes visible to the Sphinx.
Your thoughts Scott.
LD: I read through some of the postings( and I will reread them later) but as I was Skimming through it. My wife had a question for this thread. Have the Egyptians, foretold any futures in their writings as the Mayans presumably have?
...I am going to blot out everything that I have made. This Earth shall enter into (i.e. be absorbed in) the watery abyss of Nu (or Nunu) by means of a raging flood, and will become even as it was in primeval time. I myself shall remain together with Osiris, but I shall transform myself into a small serpent, which can be neither comprehended nor seen… one day the Nile will rise and cover all Egypt with water, and drown the whole country; then, as in the beginning, there will be nothing to be seen except water…”- Wallis E. A. Budge, From Fetish to God in Ancient Egypt, (Oxford University Press, 1934), 198.
"And whatever happened either in your country or in ours or in any other region of which we are informed – if there were any actions noble or great or in any other way remarkable, they have all been written down by us of old and are preserved in our temples.
Whereas just when you [Solon] and other nations are beginning to be provided with letters and the other requisites of civilized life, after the usual interval, the stream from heaven, like a pestilence, comes pouring down and leaves only those of you who are destitute of letters and education, and so you have to begin all over again like children and know nothing of what happened in ancient times, either among us or among yourselves.” (Emphasis mine). - Ignatius Donnelly, The Destruction of Atlantis (New York: Multimedia Publishing, 1883, 1971),204-205
"I have been designated among the chiefs of men, the guides of the country chosen by the king. One will not find anyone more favored than I telling the hour conforms to the desire of the god so that he may give order to erect constructions announcing to man his future, telling him about his youth and his death; telling the years, the months, the days, and the hours, the course over every star by observation of its path.” - Senty, son of Pen-Sobek, Marshall Clagett, Ancient Egyptian Science Vol.II, 490
LD: And,what would this discovery of the 2012 timeline mean to modern civilization?

Hello Cythraul, ... etc
SC: You raise an important point. The 2 sets of Queens pyramids at Giza present a symbolic representation of the Orion's Belt stars at their minimum (c.10,460 BCE) and their maximum (c.2,500 CE) culminations.
The word 'culmination' is important here. The culmination of the belt stars (when viewed on the SW & East horizon) is the time when the stars appear to STOP. For some 13,000 years they drift around the horizon and then STOP (culmination), change direction and drift around the horizon in the opposite way for around another 13,000 years - like a pendulum.
Due to precession, the Orion 'slides' up and down the meridian in the course of 25,920 years or one precessional cycle. It takes 12,960 years for Orion to descend from top to bottom and another 12,960 years to ascend from bottom to top again. By generating a simulation of the night sky at 10,500 BC, it was found that Al Nitak, the lowest of the three stars of the Orion belt crosses the meridian at an altitude of only 9 degrees 20' above the horizon. This is the lowest altitude it will reach in its precessional cycle. Thus, by mimicking the layout of the belt stars in the sky in 10,500 BC, the pyramids not only signifies a specific epoch but also marks the beginning of a precessional half-cycle.
Serafine: Hope this animation helps clarify perception ( and comprehension ) of this thread for some. More Grist for the Mill...
