At work the other day, I stumbled upon a discussion one dude was having with another regarding a Creationist who believed that if you didn’t believe the Earth was X years old, you just didn’t have the right religion. After listening for a little while, one of them said something that spurred me to give the remark, “I think the Bible is all about aliens. Ezekiel carried into heaven by a wheel of fire? Yeah, UFO.”
There was laughter, as I meant for there to be, just by the way I said it, but at the same time I meant it. The Old Testament makes far more sense to me in the context of extraterrestrial interaction. Moses saw God’s back, remember, and God walked in the garden of Eden and did not know where Adam and Eve were. Pretty weird. Pillar of fire by night, smoke by day? Parting water and whatnot? With an understanding and ability to manipulate electromagnetism or perhaps sonic technology, would these things really be so hard? The Ark of the Covenant seemed to contain something pretty magnificent, and people were supposed to wear particular gear and whatnot to approach it, otherwise they died.
I don’t however, think the entity known as the Christ used physical technology to alter the world about him. I believe his technology was the mental/spiritual understanding of the interdimensional nature of himself and reality. I think this because Jesus is not the only person to operate in the Christ state of awareness. Many people have experiences which are not physically measureable or explainable in the materialistic model of reality, yet they are fairly common. Less common are the accounts of chi mastery, levitation, telepathy, telekinesis, instantaneous healing, stigmata, people who need not eat or drink for years, and so on. These things are possible with realization and greater awareness of the energy matrix within which we operate. When it comes down to it, we don’t really know what we are. Our foundational beliefs about this are afloat in an ocean of potentials and possibilities.
The missing link or leap in our evolutionary history points also points to external influences. Whether this is because of galactic cycles, or because of manipulation of the genome, I couldn’t say. I’m leaning toward a combination of galactic cycle to bring about the primate form, and then genetic manipulation to create the current sapiens form a shorter while ago.
The cycle I refer to is one discovered by a pair of paleontologists from the University of Chicago, Raup and Sepkoski. They discovered that every 26 million years, the marine fossil record shows that there are massive die-offs, and the species of Earth make spontaneous evolutionary leaps. The researchers tried to dismiss it and figure it out of their data, and it does seem like there were two consecutive cycles where it was skipped (this was just in the marine fossil record) but it persisted regularly over the 250 million year span they looked over. [http://www.pnas.org/cgi/content/abstract/81/3/801]
The graph shows extinction followed by a spike of new species appearing in the seabed. There is a lack of Earth cataclysms to support the idea that massive die-offs are caused by asteroids and whatnot.
And then, from Berkeley, Robert Rohde discovered an even larger cycle of 62 million years, which he explained in Nature [http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v434/n7030/abs/nature03339.html].
The Rohde cycle is about every 62 million years, give or take 3 million. We’re at 65 million years since the last—and yeah, it could be 5,000 years in the future, but right now, we’re in the midst of a major die off. We haven’t seen extinction rates like this, and it isn’t just because of humanity. Frogs are dying off from a widespread fungus that has appeared everywhere in the world, not just in pockets of isolation, which strikes me as simply weird.
There are a lot of people in the alternate/New Age group who think it’s planet X causing these changes (based on Zecharia Sitchin’s work with Sumerian myth that speaks of a planet that sweeps through our orbit every ~3500 years) but the gravitational flux from a single planet would have little sway on the sun but a possibly catastrophic effect on other planets. Perhaps the planet people have been expecting was actually the massive comet the size of Jupiter that swung through our solar system in 2003 so close to the sun it was inside Mercury’s orbit.
The gravitational influence of this massive body should have pulled the planets out of their orbits, yet it had little to no noticeable effect, which is physically impossible. The comet itself wasn’t well publicized, probably because it would have panicked people, since we potentially could have collided with it. There are pictures and whatnot of it online. (Is this the same comet that seems to be a fulfillment of Hopi prophecy? To appear as a blue star, the comet would have had to have been between us and the sun to have its tail aligned with its core. This comet was in and out of our solar system in a matter of days. Huge and unimaginably fast.)
This brings us back to the extraterrestrial influence operating in our solar system. If one had the technology, one could potentially shield the gravitational influence of such an object and protect a solar system and a planet full of life from too much disturbance.
A lot of people, including one of the chaps I mentioned earlier, think there’s no reason for extraterrestrials to visit us. If they thought the way most Earthlings think, perhaps not. But I think about it this way. If they were able to develop a way to travel all the way to Earth before destroying themselves, chances are their ideas about life are going to be far different from ours. I think a lot of our science fiction may not be so far off from reality. It’s pretty easy to ask yourself, “if you were an advanced civilization, how would you interact with a less evolved one?” Personally, I think I’d institute something like Star Trek’s prime directive or Star Ocean’s UP3 (Underdeveloped Planet Protection Pact) to not openly influence the overall evolution of the planet so that the people can grow and learn on their own—unless they are about to be wiped out, either by their own doing or by some outside event.
I move worms from the sidewalk because worms don’t have the perspective to see that the sidewalk is a path of worm-death, just as many Earthlings seem to lack the perspective to see that selfishness, greed and war is a path of Earth-death.
This isn’t to say that all the people who may have visited us have our best interests in mind. According to the Sumerian script Sitchin translated, the Annunaki created the human form to be able to mine gold for their Annunaki overlords. The Elohim of the Old Testament created man and demanded worship and strict rules to be followed, overseeing and enforcing their own laws, wiping out towns with blasts akin to nuclear strikes, killing the firstborn in the homes unmarked with the blood of a lamb. Currently, there are supposedly groups who have provided Earth’s negative elite with technologies to assist them in keeping others willingly oppressed.
Yet there are eyewitness military accounts that hovering lights have somehow rendered warheads inert and powered down nuclear facilities. Perhaps these are the same entities who have assigned themselves as our protectors and guardians, giving those of us who care to search clues toward understanding the nature of reality, encoded into the geometrical formations that appear in our crops. Perhaps they are what we have to look forward to in our next step of evolution, which seems to be fast approaching. It is no surprise that the structures people have given their lives over to are breaking down and being restructured. It may seem like a step back, but we’re making room for the running start to the leap of consciousness and corresponding form we are about to take.
