Positions of the planets can be used as a perfect clock. Such a clock can mark date in time (in the past and/or in the future) which can be read by intelligent beings regardless of their language and calendar they use… Planetary alignment that will take place Dec 3, 2012 is dead-on alignment with the Pyramids at Giza. Is it possible that Giza pyramids where built to honor (or warn about) specific time marked by the planetary convergence?

This image from Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope shows a stellar nursery containing thousands of young stars and developing protostars near the sword of the constellation Orion. Massive stars light up the Orion nebula, the bright region near the centre of the image. To the north of the nebula is a dark filamentary cloud of cold dust and gas over five light years long, containing ruby red protostars that jewel the hilt of Orion's sword
A story I was taught about Orion was that he and the archer watch over their sides of the sky, both safe from the scorpion; and the medicine man in between with the serpent. Keep in mind that the (hunting) dogs and the hare are near Orion's feet....
A very interesting artifact found in Ecuador in the 1980s is the so-called Pyramid with the Eye. It has thirteen steps,the eye is an inlay and looks exactly like the Pyramid on the US one dollar bill. On the bottom, there's an inlay in little gold plates showing the Orion star constellation, and writing. Professor Kurt Schildmann's translation found it to be pre-Sanskrit because it's older than the oldest writing. His translation of the four letters is: “The son of the creator comes.”
