As you plainly listed and mapped from south to north according to ancient believers....the reason orions belt is reflected upside down is because the ancients would sit around a pool of water and look down on reflections..which in of course would make the map reversed..makes sense to me

What the OP is saying makes sense, I learned about it in my history class at college. What he means is, the ancient Egyptians drew maps with south at the top instead of north. This is why the pyramids are aligned to look like Orion's Belt (complete with the visible Milky Way galaxy represented by the Nile), but only if the map is looked at with south on top.

Am I right OP?

If your sun god ra is to the south when you look at him then you would orient your maps with your god to the top.
