AstroGnostic: The Evolutionary Triad

Hidden Experience host Mike Clelland! recently found himself channeling The Secret Sun. I (along with many others) was so deeply impressed with the results that I asked Mike if I could repost it here. After several passes and revisions, Mike passed along the code and I'm republishing here for The Secret Sun Nation.

Longtime readers will know the drill, but visitors might want to check out this post for links to the "Nightmares in Camelot" series, which touches upon some of the same issues Mike explores here.

Don't forget to check out Hidden Experience for more, as well as many excellent interview-based podcasts with the cream of the UFO research crop.

Without further ado, let me pass the mic to Mike. Sit back and soak it in...

the evolution chamber

KUBRICK, FOWLER and THE WATCHERS

The drama of evolution is played out in the book of Genesis, as well as in Kubrick’s 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. And the drama of synchronicity is played out seemingly everywhere, and things can end up getting intertwined in mysterious ways.

The Dawn of Man

Kubrick’s film begins with the Dawn of Man, where proto-humans encounter a mysterious alien force that spawns an evolutionary leap. The middle part of the film involves modern man who re-encounters this same mysterious force.

Fetus / Star child / gray alien

All this reaches a climax with an apotheosis where a human fetus is the culmination of our next evolutionary change. We see three distinct evolutionary stages.

These three stages show up elsewhere too, they are in the UFO abduction literature.
Below is an excerpt from Raymond Fowler's 1991 book, The Watchers:

Fowler goes on to point out that the human fetus can look eerily like a prototypical gray alien. Big head, big prominent eyes and a spindly body. (Ray isn't the only one to notice this!)

A human fetus as seen in a sonogram, looking a lot like the cover of Communion giving us the finger.

Strangely, the fetus of a chimpanzee looks very human. The Chimpanzee is our closest genetic cousin, our genetics are so similar (about 95% the same) that one has to ask, why aren’t we chimpanzees? Perhaps we are, at least we are their fetuses.

In his book The Watchers, Raymond Fowler speculates about this odd likeness in the fetuses in us and in chimpanzees, and an interpretation of this curious procession. I’ve included a series of pages from this book (linked HERE and below), and this should be required reading to anyone who wants to dig a little bit deeper into this stuff.

Are modern humans some sort of genetic alteration using a chimpanzee fetus? If we go one step further, are the gray aliens a genetic alteration using the human fetus?

Chimpanzees are born with smaller heads than us humans, and they don’t experience the same sort of pain we do during the birth process. It’s our large heads (and larger brains) that separate us from the chimpanzee.

Does the bible give us a clue to this species tinkering?

In fact it does, when God kicks Adam and Eve out of The Garden, he bestowed only two punishments, we would feel shame (and we would then want clothes) and from this point on we would experience painful child birth.


Were Adam and Eve happy Chimpanzees living lives of bliss in The Garden? And who was this “God” that changed us? Were we genetically altered so that now we're burdened with bigger heads?

a prototypical gray alien

The gray alien seems incapable of child bearing in the way we presently understand. Their huge heads and their tiny hips would make this all but impossible unless they're up to something unfamiliar, like employing some sort of artificial womb. This is something that is alarmingly common in UFO abduction reports; we hear repeating stories of tanks filled with fetuses and some sort of liquid, and often we hear about rooms filled with lots of these tanks. What is happening? Is there really some sort of breeding program where humans are getting up-graded?

Following this line of speculation, we must scrutinize these three distinct phases of evolution: Chimpanzees, modern humans and the gray alien. The narrative of 2001 mimics the conjecture that Raymond Fowler puts forth in The Watchers.

When Betty Andreasson Luca asked her little gray abductors who they were, they replied, The Watchers.

Both Betty Andreasson Luca and Ray Fowler are devout Christians, so I feel it’s appropriate to quote the Bible again.


This sounds suspiciously like the opening lines from a modern day UFO abduction report.

Adding to the overall strangeness, the author and researcher Raymond Fowler came out as an alien abductee himself. He shared his own direct experiences in a 2002 book titled UFO Testament: Anatomy of an Abductee. While this might seem like a bizarre claim coming from a respected UFO researcher, it is instead very common. I have come to the point where I suspect that most researchers in this field have had some sort of contact experience, either remembered or suppressed.

His most recent book is about being plagued by synchronicities and their odd intertwining with the UFO phenomenon (a subject near and dear to my heart), this 2004 book is titled SYNCHROFILE.

JACK KIRBY and THE WATCHER

The Book of Enoch uses The Watchers as a way to describe the fallen angels. But they show up in comic books too.

God-like alien with a big bald head on the moon

Jack Kirby and Stan Lee created a character called The Watcher to describe a race of God-like aliens, and he is drawn with a huge bald head and vague facial features. He looks suspiciously like a fetus, or the prototypical gray alien.

Genetically enhanced super-apes traveling in space while trapped in weird glowing orbs. Does this seems familiar?

The mystical Watcher named Uatu reveals himself to the Fantastic Four and makes them battle the Red Ghost (an evil Russian) and his Super-apes for control of the Moon. Again, this mimics some of the narrative elements in Kubrick’s 2001.

Christopher Knowles has written extensively at THE SECRET SUN about how Jack Kirby was tapping into something profoundly mysterious.

THE SIXTH FINGER

This story of The Watcher hit the comic book racks in April of 1963. The same year as The Outer Limits episode THE SIXTH FINGER. This story is also obsessed with the dilemma of human evolution. We again see the three distinct evolutionary stages starting with apes, moving to modern man and culminating with a mystical being with an over-sized bald head.

Again, Christopher Knowles has written extensively on the mythic power of The Outer Limits, and it's overtly prophetic plot points describing the alien abduction lore.


THE SIXTH FINGER - the complete episode from 1963

In this mythic Outer Limits episode, young Gwyllm Griffiths, played by David McCallum, jumps at the chance to be the first human subject to step into a secret machine, anything to escape the drudgery of life in a Welsh mining town. The experiment succeeds and Gwyllm is “evolved” into the future. He emerges from a chamber with a much larger head and a sixth finger on each hand. He has progress to a human future of Godlike powers.

Scientifically enhanced evolution allows apes to do office work

Modern man

Science controls evolution (I LOVE this image)

God-like, alien-like, big-headed and bald.

THE SIXTH FINGER resonates the the same ape/human/God triad as 2001.

PLANET OF THE APES

2001 isn’t the only movie from 1968 with apes and astronauts. Another masterpiece of cinema premiered that same year, PLANET OF THE APES.

Taylor emerges from the sea

Charlton Heston plays astronaut Taylor, a parallel to Keir Dullea’s astronaut from 2001, Dr. David Bowman. Both transcend time and arrive at a mysterious place. The script was written by Rod Serling, no stranger to the mythic and metaphoric.

This movie is steeped in secrets about the evolution of apes and humans. Dr. Zaius (Zeus?) is the rule-maker in this world, and he is also the caretaker of the hidden knowledge about the evolutionary history of his planet. He plays the role of Heywood Floyd from 2001, both are the keeper of secrets and at the heart of a grand cover-up.

Taylor lies in his glass chamber, arms crossed like an entombed Pharaoh.

Proof that a inverted evolution took place, in three distinct layers.

We see three distinct evolutionary phases in PLANET OF THE APES, they are most clearly seen in the archeological dig inside a cave. There are three distinct layers, with our present day modern man at the lowest level. This film is upside down compared to 2001.

When Taylor meets with Dr. Zaius in his chambers he asks, “How in Hell did this upside-down civilization get started?”

Zaius replies, “You may call it upside-down, because you occupy it’s lowest level!”

PLANET OF THE APES begins with space travel through a psychedelic star gate, and 2001 ends with a similar transition. The narrative path is upside-down compared to it's sister movie.

Dr. Zaius and the cursed doll.

At the lowest level in the dig site, Cornelius (Roddy McDowell) has un-earthed an ancient human baby doll. This doll resonates the big headed alien/fetus meme. This doll is the key to unraveling the cover-up held in place by Dr. Zaius.

At one point the chimpanzee scientist Zera (Kim Hunter) shouts at Dr. Zaius, “The proof, the doll!”

The film culminates with Taylor riding off to find “his destiny,” to quote Dr. Zaius. This transformative destiny involves meeting Isis in the form of the Statue of Liberty.

GABRIELLE GIFFORDS

Now here is where things get really weird.

When Jared Lee Loughner shot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, one of the first Doctors arrive on the scene was DR. DAVE BOWMAN. He attended a wounded 9-year old girl who just happened to be born on September 11th, 2001. She died that day, and her name was Christina-TAYLOR Greene.

Charlton Heston was an astronaut named TAYLOR in PLANET OF THE APES, and Keir Dullea portrays astronaut DR. DAVE BOWMAN, who returns to earth at the end of 2001 as the fetus like star child. To make things even stranger, Gabrielle Giffords is married to an astronaut.

SYNCHRO-ODDITIES

I have been trying to make synchro-connections with two movies, a TV show, a comic book, a UFO abduction account and a political assassination attempt. In doing so, it seems like attempting to rein this stuff in with any kind of linear logic is useless. So I’m just gunna list some odd interrelations (in no particular order) with bulleted points.

~ PLANET OF THE APES premiered on April 3rd, 1968. And 2001: A SPACE ODDESY premiered just 3 days later on April 6th, 1968.

~ PLANET OF THE APES begins with a psychedelic star gate/worm hole sequence, and 2001 ends with something very similar.

Lake Powell at the end of the worm hole.

Lake Powell at the end of the worm hole.

~ Lake Powell in Utah (Uatu?) is featured in both PLANET OF THE APES and 2001. In each of these movies it appears as the culmination of the trippy star gate voyage through space.

~ Lake Powell was used as a location in 1965 passion play, THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD. Charlton Heston plays John the Baptist and baptizes Jesus in these same waters. Roddy McDowell plays Mathew and David McCallum plays Judas Iscariot!


Charlton Heston is back in Lake Powell, wearing firs instead of a space suit.

~ 2001, PLANET OF THE APES and The Watchers are each, at their heart, Ancient Astronaut stories (and on some level, so is THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD).

~ Charlton Heston also played Moses, where he brings down tablets from God to usher in a new-age. A tablet-like monolith appears in 2001 (from God?), again to usher in a new-age.

~ In 1995 there was an odd bit of black & white 16mm footage suposedly showing an ALIEN AUTOPSY, it proports to be a being that was found in the Roswell crash. The film is easily dismissed as a hoax, but the entity shown has an oversized bald head and six fingers.

~ Roddy McDowell emerges from a Welsh mining town in John Ford’s HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY, and he eventually plays the role of Cornelius (a chimpanzee) in 1968. David McCallum emerges from the very same Welsh mining town in THE SIXTH FINGER, the film-makers re-use stock footage from the 1941 film.

~ Young British actress Jill Hayworth plays the beautiful love interest in THE SIXTH FINGER in 1963, and in 1967 she plays opposite Roddy McDowell in a Hammer wanna-be horror film titled IT!

~ Also in 1967, McDowell guest stars in the TV series THE INVADERS as an astrophysicist who has proof that aliens are invading the planet.

Roddy McDowell as Cornelius

~ Roddy McDowell read the audio-book for Whitley Strieber’s 1987 best-seller Communion. Let me add that listening to this reading of Strieber’s first person narrative is absolutely wonderful. In essence, Roddy McDowell is playing the role of Whitley Strieber!

Charlton Heston and Kim Hunter re-enact the first steps of a hybridization process

~ Kim Hunter (Zera in PLANET OF THE APES) also played the role of an alien abductee in an episode of The CBS Radio Mystery Theater. The set of plot points closely matches many of the elements of the typical UFO abduction account (including mind control, telepathy and implants). The original air-date was November 25, 1974, well before the proliferation in the media of abduction accounts.

Archangel Gabriel and The Blessed Virgin Mary

~ It is the Archangel Gabriel that appears to Mary. He tells her: “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb...” (Luke 1:31) This immaculate conception story sounds curiously similar to some of the accounts shared by women who claim alien abduction experiences; these accounts are full of mysterious pregnancies. Often when the woman is NOT sexually active. This certainly parrallels the virgin Mary.

~ The name Gabriel certainly parallels Gabrielle. Also, some New Age exponents portray Archangel Gabriel as female.

~ There was another Gabriel involved in the shooting in Tucson. Gabriel "Gabe" Zimmerman, age 30, was a member of Congresswoman Giffords' staff and was killed that afternoon.

~ The name Gabrielle Giffords resonates Gwyllm Griffiths. Gwyllm is the evolutionarily transformed bald being in THE SIXTH FINGER.

~ Gabrielle Giffords miraculously survives being shot in the head, and ends up bald, like her astronaut husband.


~ Giffords' astronaut husband (Mark Kelly) has an identical twin brother (Scott Kelly), who is also an astronaut! Scott Kelly was a pilot for space shuttle Discovery, and that's the name of Dr. Dave Bowman's spaceship. Scott Kelly was in space during the shooting, and offered a moment of silence on 1-11-11. (more from Loren Coleman)

Issue dated Feb. 21, 1964

~ The twin astronauts were born on Feb. 21st 1964. Here is the LIFE magazine cover from that very day showing Lee Harvey Oswald. Many researchers of the JFK assassination claim that this photo is faked. Also, Oswald had a double (or twin) impersonating him in 1964 and LIFE magazine had well established ties to the CIA. Oswald shares the name LEE with Jared LEE Lougner.

~ I have to assume that the NASA astronaut corps are briefed about the reality of the UFO phenomenon. It sure seems like they would be trained in advance that they might see something odd out there. The picture that gets painted is that these folks are privy to some seriously insider info about UFOs.


CRYOGENIC TUBES

~ PLANET OF THE APES and 2001 both feature cryogenic suspended animation chambers, and these are seen as death chambers in both movies. Glass chambers are also pivotal to THE SIXTH FINGER and to Ray Fowler’s The Watchers.

Evolution in a glass chamber

~ THE SIXTH FINGER starts with an ape who has made an evolutionary leap (using a glass chamber) and ends with a modern human making a further evolutionary leap and emerging as a proto-God with an oversized bald head.


~ The imagery of the suspended animation glass sarcophagus shows up a lot in the UFO abduction lore. (see the drawing by an abductee above) Some researchers conclude that there is an ongoing genetic project to create geneticly enhanced alien/human hybrids using advanced technologies.


~ An abductee tells of seeing this clone nursery (see above illustration) and it depicts alien/human hybrid fetuses floating in glass tubes. The color of the fluid in these tubes is consistantly reported as blue. When Taylor enters his glass chamber in the first minutes of PLANET OF THE APES, the image fades to blue and then there is a star-gate sequence.

~ The illustration below was drawn by Betty Andeasson Luca and it depicts a series of glass tubes, and they show their own evolutionary scheme. Even Jesus is included!

Illustration © Betty Andreasson Luca.

“The aliens have spliced into the human seed to prolong the form... so that nothing will be lost when the last shall come.”

“The people of all races and times encased in clear rectangular receptacles” for preservation by the non-human beings... called The Watchers, who have monitored the Earth for thousands of years.

Excerpt from The Watchers
Betty Andreasson Luca, Abductee


~ In the pulp science fiction illustrations and magazine covers of a bygone era, the image of the glass tube is a repeating image, albeit for a tawdry psycho-sexual obsession. Lot of images HERE. This rather comical pattern was noted by the late great Mac Tonnies.

Naughty thoughts played out in a glass sarcophagus


THE ECHO CHAMBER

Why do these resonant parallels emerge out of the ether? Is reality a sort of echo chamber where ideas and memes bounce off each-other in a way that forces them to emerge in a weird synchronistic manner?

I suspect strongly that there is something more to the horrendous tragedy surrounding Gabrielle Giffords. If there are such strange reverberating plot elements to that story; it makes me think that there simply must be a reason behind it all. What that might be, I have no idea. I am left to wonder if powerful human events simply create their own synchronous magic?

All that said, my only rule for deciphering synchronicities is to pay attention.


Keir Dullea, gone tomorrow.

  1. Huge thanks to Christopher for re-posting this. I felt like I was channeling some nutty frenetic weirdness as I was writing this thing.

    I suspect Chris knows what I mean about that feeling.

    THere were two things that pretty much knocked me out of my chair during the "research" of this thing.

    1 - When I realized that there was a Dr. Dave Bowman *AND* someone named Taylor at the Gabriaelle Giffords shooting.

    2 - When I realized that the Jesus movie THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD had Roddy McDowell and David McCallum --- AND --- Charlton Heston, who played the role fo John the Baptist!

    Not sure what it means, but it sure put the zap on my head!

    peace,

    Consider the possibility that Grey aliens have a very specific role in the Star Nations. They are master geneticists, they collect DNA samples from humans in order to have available to them every possible human DNA combination.

    They know exactly what genes they can splice together in order to help create a being that appears human superficially. For all intents and purposes these beings are human, but also have DNA from a particular Star Nation. This allows for invisible integration into society, and makes it easier for these "hybrid" beings to carry out whatever task they are assigned to do.

    Most beings like this who are not on the right path to fulfilling their purpose "self destruct" ie. fatal accident, or suicide.

    North American Aboriginals, or decendants of the celtic druids are two examples of bloodlines that are more likely to give birth to one of these individuals.

    Just an idea to consider ;)

  3. Hey Chris,

    As I commented on Mike's original post, I consistently find myself impressed with his keen eye for detail and I appreciate the lucidity he expresses in his excellent podcasts:

    "I notice details like the ones he's mentioned all the time, and I often take it as proof that we're living in a reality composed of symbols - but that these symbols are not fixed or static, that they can inform and influence each other, that they can bend space and time into networks of meaning and metaphor. As Mike states, an echo chamber of infinite proportions. That we seem to have a direct, integral connection to this synchronic echo chamber - the implications are mind-blowing."

    Peace

  4. Great post and some awesome connections. There always seemed some uncanny elements with Gabby's shooting. My wife and I live right down the start from where her office is here in Tucson and I work at UMC hospital where she was treated . I too don't know what it all means but with Dr Bowman and the little girl who died that day being born on 9/11 and Gabby's husband the astronaut, there's so many interesting things to look at. Again interesting post, Chris

  5. Gabby DEE Giffords and Mark KELLY present us with renaissence tag-team John Dee and Edward Kelley who scryed via an obsidian stone with non-human entities.

    More middle-nameing

    DEE and LEE from which emerges DEALEY where another head-shot occurred, this one fatal. Both Gabby and JFK lost a portion of their skull [ not that you'd notice from the amazing lack of head-scar on her head.]

    JFK famously gave the space-programme a big push.

    On Jan 8 2011, from photos, the Golder Ranch Fire Service appeared. Their station is on East Golder ranch Road which is crossed by N.Bowman Rd. Parallel to N.Bowman is Twin Lakes Drive, and Lough means 'Lake' in Irish.

    Christina Green's grandfather has the name DALLAS



    She was reported as both Christina Green and Christina Taylor Green

    I wonder if there's a vast algorithm going on that plucks all this kit-and-caboodle straight out of some uber-mind.



    Did a bit on Bowman in post 'Shoulderbird' [ about half way through]

    aferrismoon.blogspot.com/2011/02/shoulderbird.html

    Perhaps they put JFKs brain into Gabby's skull, yikes!

    Human evolution may have derived more directly from water-borne creatures such as dolphins and whales [ Wales :) ], and we pooped out onto islands in the pacific eventually some of us remaining on land full-time. Over various ice-ages people crossed onto Asia, the time between ice-ages resulting in 'different racial-types' to be met by fresher emigrants emerging from those islands millenia later.

    We have salty tears.

    Over 50% of humanity lives in Asia and I doubt they all emigrated there from Africa - Africa as start-point of evolution seems to best serve the Abrahamists and Egyptologists etc.

    I sometimes wonder if the whole simian angle is not an offshoot of the gentiles having only an animal soul acc. to some of the more extreme Talmudic views whereas they are like the aliens of greater intelligence with the superior human soul. Considering aliens, apes and humans as an ensemble emerge from Hollywood and comic-books then perhaps its a possibility.

    Also Eqyptian ROYAL-T were considered to have godlike souls unlike the regualr peeps.

    Taylor and Moses both emerge from the sea and Charlton played both.

    Bow - of a ship

  9. The "glass sarcophagus" is also seen prominently in the TV show "Lost in Space." The last new episode aired on March 3rd, 1968, 30 days before Planet of the Apes was released. The final re-run episode aired nationally on September 11th, 1968, 33 years prior to 9/11. Lost in Space has a lot of its own built-in weirdness, as Secret Suns' own post "Lost in Spacemen in Black" attests.

  10. This is a comment I left at Mike's blog about this post,Alan Abbadessa's post from the 28th April at his
    "Look at All the Happy Creatures" blog,which is the inspiration for Mike's post above I assume.And my post on Emmett Kelly's biography and Alan's post (28th April),which also links into Mike's post about Charlton Heston.
    For anyone here who may be interested in a little more weirdness;

    " Emmett Kelly (the sad faced clown) has played a large roll in my life synchronistically.
    Oddly enough I bought a book from Amazon on the 28th April,2011 called "Emmett".
    It is only 48 pages long and mainly full of photos.I was flicking through this book while listening to your podcast with Alan Abbadessa Green,then went to check out his blog post from April 28th,2011,and was blown away by the synchros between the two.
    Then when I read through this post of yours I was amazed to discover my synch hero Emmett Kelly also starred in "The Greatest Show on Earth" as the sad face clown,and that Charlton Heston also starred in "Tombstone",which was a town Emmett lived and performed in as a Marshall.

    Shame - no mention of Pierre Boulle? Think of the Bridge Over the River Kwai connection potential!

    As for the idea above that we evolved from whales/other cetaceans - try Elaine Morgan's books for a more grounded take on our aquatic heritage. (Note: I think you will find that all animals have salty tears ((and blood)) so your point is what exactly?)

    And as for the "Over 50% of humanity lives in Asia and I doubt they all emigrated there from Africa" thought - they'd be bl**dy old if they had.... There's a hella lot of Caucasians in the US guess that must be where they started from by the same logic.

  12. For me, an interesting point about 2001 was the demonic nature of technology out of control. In the story, there is the human crew, of which Bowman is the foremost, though it is hard to tell if there is any rank between the two men, and there is HAL 9000. In the end, HAL is a demonic force - the tail wagging the dog - as its calculations determine that the humans are too fallible to correctly carry out the mission and therefore must be eliminated.

    In the end, the story is about an apotheosis that requires an elimination of technological assistance - crutches - to the point that the Bowman Star Child can travel through space by will alone.

    This is in complete opposition to the transhumanist ideal of using a technological singularity to achieve physical transcendance, and you will see that even films which essentially vilify the idea of machine minds are followed up by sequels that promote the idea of "good souls" in the machine - In Matrix, you have The Agents - in Matrix Reloaded, you meet the kind Hindi software family. In Terminator you have the relentless killing machine, in Terminator two, he's become the heroic protecting machine.

    In MOON, Gertie the robot and Sam the clone are rendered equal and equivalent at the end, but how do we feel about that, exactly?

    Of course, in 2010, HAL is redeemed as he sacrifices himself to save the human crew and then takes his place alongside the angelic, yet comparatively impotent disembodied Bowman. In 2001, it wasn't ambiguous, really. We were left with the definite impression that Bowman's return was much more along the lines of "what great beast slouches toward Bethlehem." Just as the evolved protohumans eradicated and bred out their competitive hominids in the opening sequence, Bowman was returning to end the present race of homo sapiens.

    However, that was the story. Recent evidence shows that climate change and the combined effect of volcanic activity may have contributed to the extinction of other hominids - human beings of a different order.

    What if it was not inevitable that homo sapiens sapiens would end up the only human life on earth? Some might say we aren't and that other hominids - possibly greater beings - still live in secret on the planet. But that is not the sense we have. We are painfully aware of our collective solitary nature even if it is in the end a lie.

    Perhaps this intense sense that there were or should be other intelligent, human-like beings is what drives our need to build robots and solve artificial intelligence. Not in the drive to create new bodies and minds for ourselves, or to create a new race, but to find friends in a lonely universe.

  13. "Finding friends in the lonely universe" some intelligence to relate with? How profund. The soul and the tek/tekgnostic me thinks. The new I phone is the first step in 21 century HAL,trippy know? The collective mind with it's histronic memory must be awake to meet the new paradigm. To know our past is key to creating our future. Non-fiction of a scientific nature,reaching for the stars/smile. Glad to know you. Dennis

    Here is a quote from Richard C Hoagland on Arthur C Clarke and Mars truth sourced from http://www.enterprisemission.com/sir.htm

    "What all this suggests is some sort of internecine warfare in NASA/JPL, between those who are ready to come clean about the true environment of Mars, and those who wish to keep the now 35-year-old view of it as a dead, cold, barren world intact. By coming out so forcefully in recent months, Clarke is making it clear that he is among the former group. For whatever reason (maybe simply because it is 2001?), Sir Arthur has chosen to put it all on the line and confront the "Owls," those in the know who (pun intended) prefer to keep the dark cloak of night on these amazing revelations.
    Clarke has been considered a visionary for the better part of the last century for a reason -- he is one. But he certainly is risking a lot, his reputation, -- perhaps even his personal safety -- to confront these demons and force these questions out into the open. In that we will be willing allies, for the stakes are high. But as Sir Arthur himself seems to be pointing out by his actions -- the ante has just been upped."

    Hi everyone!,
    it always amazes me how you are all looking for reality outside the Self.
    We are already Stars within.This I know when I achieved Samadhi.Stop looking in space-time for answers.We are intrinsically NOT our vehicles of perception\ experience,NOT our DNA.However, your ideas of the starchild\Alien ,the Human and the Monkey are actually all parts of the Self expression .Understand that aliens are NOT more advanced than Humans.I would put it more like Star,Human,Beast or if you like Angel,Human,Animal.All parts of the self actualization through the frequencies.What it means to be Human is to awaken and harmonize all 7 Chackras\Planes of consciousness and develop a SOUL body through transcendent Gnosis ...you remember real knowing{gnosis} as opposed to belief|faith{pistis} or as in your cases speculative armchair occultism{synchromystis}.
    I guess we're all on our own unique ascension curves.
    ps. you wont find much from looking up from the bottom of the hourglass ,especially since you cast it before time.You have to rise on the planes,my friends, before you can see\understand anything at all.

    Cheers! and Ecstatic Gnosis!

  18. I'm of the opinion that Gabriel was in fact, female - though not from a New Age perspective. The research of the Golden Age Project points to Gabriel being a title, akin to governor, which was held by a woman, Nin-Lil.

    Your work is exceptional - thanks!

    I find these perspectives interesting as well. The idea that there was a prehistoric time and lost civilization far more complex than we think.

    In the Book of Enoch and Genesis, God and the angels are presented as far more physical and biological creatures than spiritual. When the Watchers (grigori) of Enoch mate with women and teach humans the basic skills of civilization, they are cast of heaven and their names are changed. It could be that their titles are transferred to new archangels.

    In Genesis, Abraham sits down and has a meal with Jehovah and two angels and God even jokes with Sarah, Abraham's wife during the meal. This is no ecstatic abduction-like or divine experiences in the present sense. It is more like a meeting between two varieties of living beings.

  21. Quintessential synchromysticism. May I recommend Freeman's Gabrielle Giffords synchronistic elements as a suggestion to add to this post.
