Tunnel

Dr Jean Kerisel, the eminent French engineer whose work in the Subterranean Chamber of the Great Pyramid we are already familiar with,49 has recently taken the geological evidence further by suggesting that the Sphinx may stand over the entrance to a 700-metre-long tunnel leading to the Great Pyramid–a tunnel that was once filled or partially filled with water.50

Could such a tunnel be the other ‘way’ that the Horus-King had to take to ‘see the astral form of his Father’, i.e. Orion? The fact that inside the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid is, indeed, a star-shaft pointed directly at Orion's belt–the ‘Rostau’ in the sky–adds cogency to notions of some sort of underground access route that might have been used by initiates to journey in secret from the Sphinx to the inner passages and chambers of the Pyramid.

Furthermore, in the Pyramid Texts we often hear of a ‘Causeway of Happiness’ which is in the ‘North of the Field of Offerings’. And in the following passage the Horus-King seems to be standing at the entrance of such a ‘causeway’ at exactly the time Sirius is performing its heliacal rising, i.e. ‘Heralding the New Year’ 70 days after the sun's crossing of the Milky Way:

I am the herald of the Year, O Osiris, I have come on business of your father Geb [the earth-god]… I speak to you, I have made you enduring. ‘Causeway of Happiness’ is the name of this causeway north of the Field of Offerings. Stand Up, Osiris, and commend me to those who are in charge of the ‘Causeway of Happiness’ north of the Field of Offerings just as you commended Horus to Isis on that day on which you made her pregnant…51
