My statements on the topic deal only with the theory of using the circumpolar stars to align a pyramid and more specifically that there is no evidence in the PT's to support the theory.

Unis' PT's are the earliest, most complete and the shortest. I find no reference to the circumpolar stars in Unis' PT's, lots of Imperishable stars and Imperishable Akh's which are not circumpolar...

(J.P.Allen 2005)

Unis burial chamber and passage - *south side

INVOCATION TO NEW LIFE

PT 147

...The populace will cry out to you once the Imperishable Stars have raised you aloft.

RELEASE FROM THE DUAT AND THE EARTH

PT 148

...See me, as you have seen the forms of the progeny who know their spells, the Imperishable Stars, and see (in me) the two in the palace -- that is , Horus and Seth.

...Osiris, you cannot control him; your son cannot control him. Horus, you cannot control him; your father cannot control him. You belong, WHOEVER, to that god of whom Atum's twins said: "you are distinguished," they said, "in your identity of a god."
You shall become completed as every god:
your head as Horus of the Duat -- an Imperishable Star;
your face as Eyes-Forward -- an Imperishable Star;
your ears Atum's twins -- an Imperishable Star;
your eyes Atum's twins -- an Imperishable Star;
your nose as the Jackal -- an Imperishable Star;
your teeth Sopdu -- an Imperishable Star;
your arms Hapi and Duamutef -- when you demand to go up to the sky, you go up;
your legs Imseti and Qebehsenuef -- when you demand to go down to the undersky, you go down;
your limbs Atum's twins -- an Imperishable Star.
You will not perish, your ka will not perish, you are ka.

Now we move to the Antechamber, the west-south walls:

CROSSING THE AKHET

PT 175

...The portals will act for him, the (Re Crown's) coil will be tied on for him, and this Unis will lead the Imperishable Stars.

PT 176

...Unis will go up on Isis's thighs, Unis will climb on Nephthys's thighs. Unis's father Atum will take the arm of Unis and allot Unis to those gods who are wise and experienced, the Imperishabble Stars.

That is the extent of imperishable stars... no reference to "imperishable stars in the north" and all written on the southern walls of the chamber, passage and antechamber. These are not references to the circumpolar stars, indeed the first two instances belong to the Duat and not the Akhet and all refer to gods as imperishable stars.

I do understand duality, just don't understand how you can claim the circumpolar stars represent some kind of duality of the akhet, especially since the circumpolar stars never dip below the northern horizon... which is entirely a different topic from my premise.

Best,

B.A.Hokom
