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.
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If you ever come across really old scientific literature, you are sure to encounter species nomenclature that is no longer valid.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.
