Bauval, Robert, and Adrian Gilbert. THE ORION MYSTERY. 1994. ISBN
0-434-0074-4. [This book needs to be taken with a BOULDER of salt. The book
jacket proclaims: "The Revolutionary Discovery that Rewrites History" and
"Unlocking the Secret of the Pyramids", and that's just on the front cover!
The back of the jacket asks the following questions: "Why did the Egyptians
build pyramids? What are the Pyramid Texts and why have they been largely
ignored since their discovery in 1880? What is the secret of the astronomical
star-clock and how it is marked by the pyramids? What is the mysterious Benben
stone and how did it influence the building of the pyramids? What lies behind
the door to the hidden chamber inside the Great Pyramid and what precious
secret, untouched for 4,500 years, might it be shielding?" :0 One of the
authors, Adrian Gilbert, is the publisher of a press specializing in Christian
Mysticism, Gnosticism, and the Hermetic tradition of Egypt.]
