I agree, when imperishable stars are referenced as being in the north the PT's are most likely to be referring to the circumpolar stars, however all stars in the night sky are imperishable, not just the circumpolar stars... Sothis - Orion - etc... It should be noted that all subsequent PT's (those after Unis) continue to add more spells or sayings (new?), the PT's build upon each previous PT rendition in sequence, I specifically highlighted Unis for this reason as his are the first iteration and the most complete.

I'm only pointing out that imperishable stars, regardless of where they are in the sky or where they exist in the pyramid texts do not prove the AE's used them to align a pyramid base via a north-south axis. In my opinion, the possible examples provided by various scholars of how it could be done are far to cumbersome and involved to accurately align the massive pyramid bases of G1 or G2 to the cardinal points... in the darkness of night... I'm surprised nobody has ever done a field test to prove their respective theories.

My glib references to the mention of Heliopolis within the PT's (in an earlier post) was intended to show the much higher importance of Atum to the deceased king verses any imperishable star, after all Heliopolis is the nexus of pyramids and the kings ascension with Atum is paramount.
