THE SIRIUS MYSTERY (Book from 1970s)

Sirius was the most important star in the sky to the ancient Egyptians. The ancient Egyptian calendar was based on the rising of Sirius. It is established for certain that Sirius was sometimes identified by the ancient Egyptians with their chief goddess Isis.
The companion of Isis was Osiris, the chief Egyptian god. The ‘companion’ of the constellation of the Great Dog (which includes Sirius) was the constellation of Orion. Since Isis is equated with Sirius, the companion of Isis must be equated, equally, with the companion of Sirius. Osiris is thus equated on occasion with the constellation Orion.
We know that the ‘companion of Sirius’ is in reality Sirius B. It is conceivable that Osiris-as-Orion, ‘the companion of Sirius,’ is a stand-in for the invisible true companion Sirius B.
‘The oldest and simplest form of the name’ of Osiris, we are told, is a hieroglyph of a throne and an eye.
The ‘eye’ aspect of Osiris is thus fundamental.
The Bozo tribe of Mali, related to the Dogon, call Sirius B ‘the eye star’. Since Osiris is represented by an eye and is sometimes considered ‘the companion of Sirius’, this is equivalent to saying that Osiris is ‘the eye star’, provided only that one grants the premise that the existence of Sirius B really was known to the ancient Egyptians and that ‘the companion of Sirius’ therefore could ultimately refer to it.
