I recently watched an interesting episode of America Unearthed from The History Channel. There are three obelisks in Manhattan that are of the same alignment as the pyramids of Giza and Orion's Belt.
In Orion, the aligned starts point to Sirius. It's name means The Scorcher and it's associated with the Dog Days of Summer, known for highest seasonal temperatures. The cultural significance of Sirius to the Greeks is captured in the Iliad:
"Sirius rises late in the dark, liquid sky
On summer nights, star of stars,
Orion's Dog they call it, brightest
Of all, but an evil portent, bringing heat
And fevers to suffering humanity."
But the reputation of Sirius is not limited to the Greeks. In Zoroastrianism, Sirius is associated with Tishtar, a goddess of fertility (Ishtar, anyone?). This mythical deity is depicted as a white horse in the Persian epic Shahnameh of Fedowsi.
In his book book The Sirius Mystery, Robert Temple claimed that the Dogon people of Mali, West Africa have a tradition of contact with intelligent extraterrestrial beings from Sirius. These people have a great deal of astronomical knowledge that exceeds what would be normal cultural development for that region.
In Manhattan, the obelisks point to the Statue of Liberty, designed by Frederic Bartholdi, a Freemason. His design was influenced by the Roman goddess Libertas and Sol Invictus "The Unconquered Sun" which can be seen on a 3rd-century disc found at Pessinus, Turkey.
A temple to Libertas was built on Palatine hill (one of the Seven Hills of Rome). Libertas is a.k.a. Eleutheria, Artemis, & Diana. Tracing mythological goddesses is tricky because they're often mixed up with each other.
As for the U.S. obelisks, the oldest was was brought from Egypt to Manhattan by a Vanderbilt in the 1880s. The Freemasons were all over these obelisk placements.
Those guys were super shady. Do you see the pattern here? What we see as interesting monuments and artifacts are part of a repeated pattern on different continents. Do you think it's just coincidence? I don't.
We're Egypt and Rome in foundation, not just America. Maybe we should be getting ready for the Exodus.
