4.0 out of 5 stars Take it one step further!
Mr. Bauval makes a very interesting and convincing case. His case could, however, be clinched by taking it just one step further. Apparently, Mr. Bauval is still trying to convince mainstream Egyptologists of his thesis. Mainstream Egyptologists, however, are still treading in the footsteps of their Victorian predecessors of the 19th and 20th centuries, and refuse to...

This review is from: The Orion Mystery: Unlocking the Secrets of the Pyramids (Mass Market Paperback)
Mr. Bauval makes a very interesting and convincing case. His case could, however, be clinched by taking it just one step further. Apparently, Mr. Bauval is still trying to convince mainstream Egyptologists of his thesis. Mainstream Egyptologists, however, are still treading in the footsteps of their Victorian predecessors of the 19th and 20th centuries, and refuse to countenance any sexual associations around their beloved subject. The Ancient Egyptians, however, were not troubled by such mores and called a penis a penis when they observed one in the sky. It is only towards the middle of his book that Mr Bauval gives the reader the clue that the Ancient Egyptians considered the three stars - we now perceive to represent the `belt' of Orion - to represent in fact the `penis' of Orion/Osiris. No wonder Isis searched the earth in vain for the penis of Osiris: it was already in Heaven! So, if the three stars represent the penis, should't the conspicuous Orion Nebula represent the `semen/seed' of Orion/Osiris? And shouldn't the Southern Shaft from the King's Chamber be supposed to line up with the Nebula? It would be interesting to find out what the consequences are of this alternative view on the dating of the monuments. If my view is right, then the story makes complete sense: when the Southern Shaft from the Queen's Chamber lines up with Sirius/Isis, the cosmic egg is deposited into the Queen's Chamber (the ovary), and when the Southern Shaft from the King's Chamber lines up with the Orion Nebula, the cosmic seed is injected into the King's Chamber (the womb). By these two stellar phenomena the mummified body of the Pharaoh is reborn as a star to be ejected through the Northern Shaft in the King's Chamber toward the circumpolar stars. So we should expect there to be a (still hidden) connection between the Queen's Chamber and the King's Chamber to allow egg and semen to come together. And we also know what the Grand Gallery - with its corbeled architecture - is supposed to be: a huge replica of the vagina!
So now we have the Riddle of the Pyramids solved: the Pyramids are just gigantic representations of the female organs of reproduction!

5.0 out of 5 stars A door into the past and the secrets of the Great Pyramid?, 19 Feb. 2002

This review is from: The Orion Mystery: Unlocking the Secrets of the Pyramids (Mass Market Paperback)
On March 22, 1993 Rudolf Gatenbrink used a remote controlled robot to explore the shafts originating in the Queens's chamber of the Great Pyramid. The robot's camera showed an image of what may be a 'stone slab door with copper handles' and speculation was the order of the day. With this backdrop in mind Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert have produced a thought provoking book that captured the imagination of anyone who has an interest in the Great Pyramid at Giza. When the book hit the shops in 1994 it was complemented by TV coverage explaining some of the theories put forward. A key aspect is a connection of the pyramids with the night sky and in particular the sky as it was several thousand years ago.The media interest was further boosted by Robert Bauval advertising in the press for items found in the Great Pyramid, brought to Britain, but lost. "The Orion Mystery" was reviewed in the Sunday Telegraph on 1st January 1995 complete with a photograph of a 'mysterious stone slab with copper handles'. I cannot help but feel the media interest in this book created conflicting messages at the time. I decided to take the plunge and find out what the excitement was about and was pleasently surprised. The duo have put together a well constructed piece of work but you must take your own view on the evidence presented. What the authors interpret may have been in the minds of the architect(s) is explained but is it sound in light of all the evidence available in the public domain? I can comment that if you read this book, your investigations, reasearch and reading will probably continue if only to disprove or further accept the ideas put forward by the authors.

This review is from: The Orion Mystery: Unlocking the Secrets of the Pyramids (Mass Market Paperback)
Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert have written a wonderful discription of Bauval insight into the sky-earth interface at the Giza Plateau. What Bauval has demonstrated is that man is a great immitator of what he envisages with the senses. His work will point to other such mirroring of spiritual concepts into earthly artforms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Orion Mystery, 12 Mar. 2004
This review is from: The Orion Mystery: Unlocking the Secrets of the Pyramids (Mass Market Paperback)
Wow. This book is very well written and had me enticed from start to finish. The author remains quite scientific but uses lay-terminology to describe his theory which is now the prevailing theory on the Egyptian pyramids. For once, reading this books does not throw up more questions than answers although, you are compelled to try to find out what's behind 'that door' in the tunnel. Google helps to that end!!! (but there is still something more to this story - I'll not spoil your fun researching it!!!)

1.0 out of 5 stars pretty tame, 22 Sept. 2005
This review is from: The Orion Mystery: Unlocking the Secrets of the Pyramids (Mass Market Paperback)
i expected more to be honest.what he says could be said in two paragraphs not three hundred pages.the guy seemed more interested in being academically correct rather than risking the truth.didn't even mention the arc of the covenant underneath the pyramid or possibly behind the copper handled door and he actually believes the egyptians built the pyramids and aligned them with the stars of orion's belt within a 99.9 degree of accuracy and with a piece of wood no less with a split in the end. come on now. i know some extra terrestrials/dimensionals who would beg to differ.
