|Basic scientific principles, and even
whole fields of knowledge, apparently came from sources outside human
consciousness. People from the most primitive societies - through historic
civilizations, to the modern era - claim ideas, inventions, intellectual
disciplines, and practical instructions for living come from advanced
beings (ABs). The information passed on always implied a higher understanding.
What does this history tell us about our place in the universe and our
relationship to other conscious beings?
Weaving together fragmented pieces of the human story portrays an extraordinary
picture of other beings and other realms, among whom humans are Johnnies-come-lately,
apprentices rather than masters. The most advanced ideas of succeeding
generations appear to have come from ABs, whether Earth-based or nonterrestrial,
this dimension or another. According to the late Lt. Col. Corso and
others, the continuing practice of information transfers has contributed
to current scientific advancements.
Despite the claims of some, humans have not proven anything definitive
about the origins of species nor how early civilizations developed;
we do not even know which is the earliest civilization. Whichever one
we pick as a starting point, its traditions point to earlier peoples
and their receipt of knowledge from ABs. An Inkan shaman in Peru told
me the megalithic, so called Incan, ruins in the Andes were constructed
by ancient ones who preceded the Inkans. Furthermore, those ancients
were taught the techniques by the "Apus" (light beings).
Returning to themes more familiar to Americans, the Jewish Old Testament
is replete with stories of ABs communicating higher knowledge to early
leaders: Noah learned of the impending flood from one of the gods who
was sympathetic to the human plight (Zecharia Sitchin identifies that
god as Enki of the Anunnaki, colonists on Earth from Nibiru). The Zoroastrians,
Aztecs, Indians, Druids, Scandinavians, and others have similar stories
of an AB who came to the rescue of their own Noah-like ancestors. The
god Yahweh handed Moses engraved tablets and dictated to him civic and
religious instructions for the Israelites. Enoch walked with the gods,
and perhaps was a demigod himself. Ezekiel received plans from the gods
for the Temple at Jerusalem, walked with them, and even left the Earth
with them in a "fiery chariot."
From other traditions we find similar tales. In Indian antiquity (see
the Hindu Ramayana) the Nagas, known as the "educators of the world,"
taught navigation, military principles, and architecture. On the other
side of the globe, the Chippewa's Manaboshu (a Noah-like personage at
the end-of-the last-ice-age deluge) received instructions from an AB
on how to make a good bow and arrow and work with copper. The ancient
Frisians of Northern Europe had an AB named Minno as a seer and philosopher.
Their Earth-mother Frya also gave them "laws that would result in a
good society." In Old Mexico, Zanna, who led the ancestors of the Aztecs
from the East to the Yucatan, was considered the "author of civilization"
and the source of their alphabet.
The people from whom the Mayans say they descended, according to the
Popol Vuh, received "fabulous knowledge" from an AB. The Serpent God,
again Enki according to Sitchin, gave to Eve and Adam knowledge from
the Tree of Life. Prometheus gave "fire" to the prehistoric Greeks,
after stealing it from the heaven inaccessible to humans. A "water spider"
who swam to the burning island no human could reach presented the "gift
of fire" to the primal Cherokees.
Why is it that not one of these stories has any crucial knowledge resulting
from the unaided efforts of humans? Why do they not say "so and so human
did it or discovered it?" ABs get the credit for the seminal turning
points of all these societies; there is no record of humans being told
something they already knew. Such a universal story, given what we know
of human egos, gives credibility to the underlying message: Human societies
were "jump started" at various points within our collective memory.
Many familiar Greek stories were reworkings of knowledge passed on
from the Egyptians. For example, Solon speaks of the goddess who gave
proto Greeks cosmology, divination, medicine, and law in the antediluvian
era. However, his Egyptian mentors said the AB Thoth gave this knowledge
to their ancestors. Thoth was credited with the invention of writing,
arithmetic, architecture, surveying, geometry, astronomy, medicine,
and surgery. According to the Egyptian Book of the Dead, he possessed
all secret knowledge on 36,535 scrolls in a vault in the sky.
Many of the above ABs reportedly came from the heavens (sky), while
others allegedly arrived from a mystical land to the East or the West,
depending on which side of the Atlantic the civilization was located.
The latter, of course, point to the fabled continent of Atlantis. (New
research links much evidence on all continents to such a pre-flood reality.)
However, when the origin of scientific knowledge is pushed back to Atlantis,
we find the Atlanteans reportedly received it from a celestial advisor:
Poseidon, the god who ruled the sea on Earth and came from the Pleiades.
Some of these transfusions of knowledge can only be inferred, as in
the case of the Bible Code discovered by Israeli mathematicians. Upon
learning that the original Hebrew version of the Old Testament has numerical
sequence codes (not unlike those used by NSA, DOD, CIA, and others in
secret computer codes), they concluded there must have been ABs with
prophetic knowledge and computing capacities beyond the Hebrews of the
Given the mass of evidence to the contrary, only selectively represented
here, it is ignorant arrogance to pretend 20th-century humans embody
the most highly developed consciousness ever on Earth. We cannot even
be sure our technologies excel others that have preceded us. The ABs
involvement in our development generally appears to be benevolent or
benign, but there are also indications that they benefit from the transactions.
While there is little question about the intervention, whether it is
primarily to our advantage needs further examination.
