Orion Correlation Theory.

The Orion correlation theory (or Giza-Orion correlation theory) is a hypothesis in alternative Egyptology. Its central claim is that there is a correlation between the location of the three largest pyramids of the Giza pyramid complex and Orion’s Belt of the constellation Orion, and that this correlation was intended as such by the builders of the pyramids. The stars of Orion were associated with Osiris, the god of rebirth and afterlife, by the ancient Egyptians. Depending on the version of the theory, additional pyramids can be included to complete the picture of the Orion constellation, and the Nile river can be included to match with the Milky Way galaxy. 

Liam: My hands are staying on the ground mate, he’s heavier than he looks…DON’T TELL HIM I SAID THAT!

Harry: Shit, both hands on floor. Do not let precious Louis fall. Do NOT

Niall: Haha this is gonna be so fun, I me- LOUIS DON’T BREAK MY BACK MATE!

Zayn: Oh dear lord this is going to end badly

Louis: Getting on top of the pyramid- oh. Huh guess I’ll just use it as a throne, more suitable anyway *mental hair flip*

Using cosmic particles, scientists can now see what’s inside the pyramids

Despite having been around for thousands of years, we still don’t know much about what Egypt’s pyramids hold. Because of an archeological imperative to preserve the pyramids, researchers can’t simply bust down the walls to gain access to their hidden chambers, according to the BBC. However, a group of researchers has reached a breakthrough that could grant them an inside look using an X-ray-like technology to scan the interiors of pyramids.

You showed up after work I’m bathing your body
Touch you in places only I know
You’re wet and you’re warm just like our bathwater
Can we make love before you go
The way you say my name makes me feel like
I’m that nigga
But I’m still unemployed
You say it’s big but you take it
Ride cowgirl
But your love ain’t free no more, baby
But your love ain’t free no more

If you want to drive home the point that it’s a lesser Egyptian Jerboa you’re illustrating, by all means depict it with pyramids in the background!

If you ever come across really old scientific literature, you are sure to encounter species nomenclature that is no longer valid. Living things get classified and reclassified as taxonomic scientists continuously work to describe the biodiversity of Earth. One place you can look is the Encyclopedia of Life, a site that pulls together images and information about all species known to science. If you were to search for Dipus aegyptius there, you’d be taken to the species’ page as it is currently known to science: Jaculus jaculus.

The image posted here can be found in Abhandlungen der Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin for the year 1825. It’s in the Biodiversity Heritage Library, one of the collaborators with the Encyclopedia of Life. You can find all the cited literature on a species in the Biodiversity Heritage Library by clicking on the “literature” tab in the Encyclopedia of Life page for a specific species, too.
