A great deal of mystery surrounded Egypt and manifest many secret facts about the Pyramids since the day of their rediscovery several centuries ago. Many explanations rose to explain the level of sophisticated the pyramids was able to reach, some made sense while the other was farfetched. The pyramids are the most recognizable symbols as they were able to stand the test of time for about 4000 years and a true example of the strong will of mankind. Many theories came to light about everything surrounding the pyramids; some are literally of this world with a fringe theme. The pyramid has always been shrouded in rumors, legends due to the fact that there are many questions about their history, composition, and structure remain unanswered.
One of the most talked about the theory concerning the pyramids is the Orion Correlation theory published by Robert Bauval in 1983. The theory manifests the concept that there is a connection between the location of the three great Pyramids of the Giza Pyramids complex and the Orion's Belt of the Constellation Orion. Depending on the theory, many additional pyramids can be included to complete the image of the Orion constellation and the Nile River can be viewed as a reflection to the Milky Way galaxy. The Orion star represented the God Osiris ruler of the underworld. You also may like to enjoy a Nile River cruise between Luxor and Aswan to witness the ancient temples and tombs covered with sand during your trips to Egypt. The theory stated that the position of the three main Egyptian pyramids of the Giza plateau was correlated with the position of three stars of in the constellation of Orion which created Orion's belt as these stars appeared in 10,000 BC. A research was published by bauval called the orison Mystery in 1994 then followed by Graham Hancock book called Keepers of Genesis in 1996 which both confirmed the theory stated that the three Pyramids were a terrestrial map of the three stars of Orion's belt, the theory also stated that the Sphinx is shaped after the constellation of Leo. They made many alternative theories debating the age of the sphinx to about 10,500 BC. The theory final statement that the orientation and dispositions of the Giza Pyramids, The Sphinx, and the Nile River is an accurate reflection of Orion's belt, Leo's constellation and the milky way which rose the argument that the pyramids might be older than peoples think, as some argue that they may have been an architectural evaluation to various building sites dating back to more than 8,000 years old before the currently known constructions were built.
Due to the unique skill & accuracy of which the pyramids were built, many fringe theories stating that there could have been a lost civilization that came after the pyramids which possessed highly advanced technologies, Plato was the reason some believed it was the survivors of the destruction of Atlantis, and where able to built a colony in Egypt. Some even weirder theories came out that it was the Aliens who constructed the pyramids or the ancient Egyptian has psychic powers like telekinesis (ability to move physical objects with one's mind without any physical interaction) or the use of some sort of levitation technology. The pyramids were believed to be the source of a mysterious power; Some believe the pyramids were used as granary store but are highly unlikely. Many radical or in most cases idiotic theories were aroused about the pyramids due to the lack of information and of mystery surrounding the pyramids.
