In today's meeting, I delve into the theory that Gravity Falls and it's inhabitants have some very strong connections to Ancient Egyptians and Aliens.
It all stems from the long held belief of the Paleocontact Hypothesis in conspiracy circles and in some modern religions. Basically that means that aliens arrived on earth during antiquity or prehistory and helped shape technology, human society, and most major religions. Ancient Egypt is a perfect example of this, as the remnants of their society showcase anachronistic technology and make odd references to non-human - but intelligent creatures. It's not hard for modern society to look upon the Great Pyramids of Giza and imagine that they were the handiwork of space aliens.
These ties in Gravity Falls come from two distinct places - the symbol of the Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel, and the original symbol on Grunkle Stan's fez. The former is centered around the mask of a pharaoh and the latter could be representative of either a ward against evil spirits or the moon itself!
But this is just speculation! What do you think? Will we see a stronger connection to aliens, space, or Ancient Egypt in the second season of Gravity Falls? Leave your theories and suggestions in the comments below!
