5.4 – DESTINATION ORION (1.11.13)


Giza. Teotihuacán. Nabta Playa. Black Mesa. Could these ancient monuments, all aligned to the stars of Orion, really be linked to each other, providing clues to our celestial beginnings? Or is there perhaps another, even more profound connection between mankind and the constellation.

“So why is it that the most important archaeological sites on our planet resemble the constellation Orion? I think it’s not a coincidence. And so the question is: where did this come from? Was there somehow some technology available to us through our ancestors, or did somebody map, at an ancient point in time, it for them? Were they given this science and did they just treasure it and maintain it until a moment in time when it was clearly lost?”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“When you look at these Orion correlations, the pyramids at Giza, the beliefs of the Mayans, what it seems to show is that Orion is where we came from, it’s where the extraterrestrials came from, and if we were to go to Orion, what we would probably find there is a planet very, very similar to that of Earth.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Is it really possible, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists contend, there is a planet similar to our own in the constellation of Orion? And if so, what or perhaps who would we find there?

“If we did get to the Orion constellation, or the stars that make up Orion, especially around the Orion Nebula star-forming region, we would find a region of the galaxy that’s kind of similar to our own but more active. More stars with planets, likely. There’s still a lot of room for opinion, because there are still unknowns. So, my own opinion is, yes, life is probably either extremely likely elsewhere, or else we don’t have a clue as to what life really is. So, if we’re looking for life elsewhere in the galaxy, a good place to start looking would be Orion.”

Thomas Brophy, Ph.D. (Physicist, Univ. of Colorado)

Even with today’s technology, traveling to Orion would take hundreds of thousands of years. But might there be another, more profound mechanism perhaps from out of this world that would make such an expansive trip in one lifetime possible? In 1935, 30 years after his groundbreaking Special Theory of Relativity, Albert Einstein published a collaborative paper called the “Einstein-Rosen Bridge.” According to this new theory, bridges, or black holes, exist in the Universe, allowing shortcuts through space and time. Today, physicists refer to them as wormholes.

“It’s 1,500 light-years distant about to Orion. If we were somehow able to use wormhole technology then conceivably we could shorten the travel time or even make it instantaneous. Although the theory even of how wormholes could work is still being developed.”

Thomas Brophy, Ph.D. (Physicist, Univ. of Colorado)

“Almost anything that’s possible theoretically in physics exists somewhere in our Universe. So, I believe that wormholes exist somewhere but not anywhere close to Earth.”

Sara Seager, Ph.D. (Prof. of Planetary Sciences, MIT)

Might advanced extraterrestrial beings have traveled here, not in a spacecraft, but through an inter-dimensional space-time portal, as some researchers suggest? If so, is it possible the Egyptian pharaohs really were able to journey to Orion through their pyramids? And could there be a way for us to rediscover that otherworldly knowledge and return to our celestial birthplace? Might the Orion constellation also be mankind’s ultimate destination?

“Orion is so important to all of these ancient civilizations. We know that they were seen as points of creations. We know that the ancient Egyptians used it in their passport to the afterlife. And so we know that this is a place of origin but also a place of destination. They tell us that somehow this is linked to where we came from and where we’re going.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“I think the prevalence of the myths about Orion and the alignments with Orion suggest that the extraterrestrial beings who came from Orion infiltrated or instructed various civilizations throughout time and left this as evidence of their appearance.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

“Thousands of years ago there were extraterrestrials. We know this from tradition. And before the extraterrestrial disappeared, they told our ancestors, yes, we will return. The humans could not understand what this was. They looked up to the sky, they saw the glittering, shining stars. This is deep, this is endless. They believed this is Heaven. The gods are in Heaven, and they will return one day.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

Are the widespread creation tales surrounding Orion really just myth? Or might they be historical accounts of extraterrestrial beings that visited Earth in the distant past, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? And is it possible the stars of Orion actually represent not only the origin, but the final destination for mankind? If so, how will we get there? And what or who will we find when we arrive? Perhaps one day we’ll unlock the mystery of Orion and reveal a celestial origin within ourselves.
