3. UFOs AND ALIEN VISTATIONS/ABDUCTIONS
THE ONE CRITICAL QUESTION
What we didn't get in many cases were transcriptions of those oral story poems that were of less significance, poems that would give us a better, fuller sense of the culture in question.
It is also important to understand that these story poems are works of art, not fact, and that they speak in the language of poetry, which is the language of metaphor.
Thus, for example, when the act of creation in these oral story poems is described, it is always metaphorically (not factually) because creation itself is a mystery (e.g., something out of nothing) and can only be described indirectly through the use of metaphor.
Thus: Man was created of mud and light is a metaphoric expression that attempts to impart a sense of the unique physical and spiritual/intellectual qualities of human beings.
It doesn't mean that when you physically examine a human being down to their smallest elements you will find mud and light. Unfortunately, this is what is happening when Alien theorists examine these early transcriptions. I hope you can see why this can lead to wrong interpretations of these texts.
These early story poems existed in all cultures, from the largest like Sumeria and Egypt, as well as the smallest hunter/gatherer tribes in remote parts of the world. Some of them were transcribed. Most of them were not, however, and have been lost forever.That is the situation we find ourselves in today.
If this is so, then the hundreds, if not thousands of hunter/gatherer tribes around the world who created such Creation oral story poems must have been individually visited by Aliens. It is possible that happened, but not probable, and it is the most probable explanation that we are looking for, as anything is possible.
I'm not talking here about oral story poems about Creation that were passed down within a culture as it dispersed over the globe, such as in the Polynesian culture, but original oral story poems about Creation of which there were hundreds , if not thousands.
We have to remember that it is the inherent nature of humans to create stories about everything, but most especially their nature and origins, because the desire and ability to create stories is what separates humans from all other animal species.
Everything else follows from that desire and ability to create stories: the invention of fire, tools, self-awareness, awareness of God, etc.. This may be a new thought to you, but it is ancient and still holds. Much of my novel, ALICE HICKEY: Between Worlds, is about this. I suggest you read Chapter 49 if you want more detail on this. Click here for a free PDF.
They are as real as Jaweh was to Moses on the Mountain. What I mean by that is that Moses' psychic visitation changed the course of the history as much as any of the physical events of that historic period c. 1500 B.C..
What puzzles me is how ignorant most Alien theorists are about psychic events and, even more important, how real those psychic events can be. I include in this, by the way, those who have reported being visited and/or abducted by Aliens. That is somewhat understandable, however, given the pervasive scientific worldview we are caught up in.
Yet for someone like myself who is familiar with psychic events and their characteristics, as well as how real they can be, it is startling how those who have experienced Alien visitations/ abductions are so oblivious to the clues embedded in that reality that they never seem to consider that the visitation/abduction, as real as it seems, might not be the same kind of “real” as the clothes they are wearing.
1) The appearance of the Aliens (large eyes, no mouth, telepathic speech and understanding).
They can be seen in preliterate cultures around the world. See the preliterate figures above and the preliterate Egyptian Mother Goddess figure who has large (knowing) eyes also on her breasts (below, L).
| Mother Goddess|
w large eyes
Preliterate humans, in the few places they survive today, see the world in the same way that I have just delineated: that the voice and visions they have are real, but they are from the Other World, the non-physical world, and that they are the voices of ancestors (or the Gods that created those ancestors).
|Large Eyes mean Gods|
It doesn't help that Alien theorists can go on and on like this forever, substituting "Alien" for ancestor or divinity whenever those terms, or depictions of those terms, occur in ancient, preliterate pictographs, petroglyphs, statues and oral story poems, all of which they take as factual records rather than the metaphoric, artistic statements they really are.
This failing indicates to me that Alien theorists don't have the slightest idea of the "vision" nature of preliterate art, i.e., it was an art created as the result of a psychic/spiritual vision rather than an art that sought to realistically portray a factual event, which is what most of our art is today.
This only reinforces my belief that Alien theorists are completely ignorant of the nature of preliterate cultures and the preliterate mind that gave rise to these artifacts. Part of the problem, as I've just said, is that these verbal and visual visitations recorded in various oral story poems and works of art have been taken by Alien theorists as representations of factual visitations by superior physical beings, but that is not how preliterate man saw them ( and recorded them).
This is perhaps the key clue. There are numerous situations where those who have been abducted have been led to a “book of knowledge” that explains everything only to find it unreadable. This is a common occurrence in psychic visitations and has been since the beginning of time.
5) Another clue lies in what has been called the "telepathic ability" of the Aliens, i.e., upon recollection, those visited often recall that the Aliens had no mouths, and yet they could hear the Aliens speaking to them.
This non-verbal communication, however, is not new. It is a standard component of psychic visions and goes back to the earliest recorded visitations of divinities and ancestors. In some of these these visitations, there are reports that the Gods spoke "mind to mind".
In addition, what is heard is very compelling, i.e., what is relayed to those being visited has a sense of being undeniably true. This was instinctively taken by preliterate humans as meaning the message was spoken by a superior being, i.e., a divinity or ancestor. Again Julian Jaynes should be read on this. Click here for a free PDF of his groundbreaking book.
6) Another clue lies in the fact that what is being said by the "Aliens" is metaphoric in nature. This occurs in all psychic visitations back to the beginning of time.
We can see it in the ancient stories of what the Gods said. While there is never any confusion as to what the Gods have said, i.e., they spoke distinctly, there was often a great deal of uncertainty as to what the Gods meant, i.e., what the Gods said may have had several meanings.
Let me give you some examples. When a disaster visited the early Hebrews, they used the written Torah to aid them in debating and logically deciding where they had failed to observe the commandments in the Torah, so they wouldn't be punished by God again.
This uncertainty about the meaning of a psychic message is one of the marks of psychic visitations (which the Torah is, being given to Moses by God). This is because a psychic communication is generally metaphoric.
That is their nature, and that is why, in most early cultures, seers and shamans were employed to ferret out the true meaning of dreams and visions, all of which are metaphoric communications from the unconscious. If you need an example of this, think of Joseph's dream interpretation abilities in the Bible and the Pharaoh who depended on him.
Let me give you another example of metaphoric speech. The person being visited by a psychic presence might ask: "Why is my mind so confused as to why you have come?" The psychic presence might answer: "No one knows," or " You are confused because your mind is limited" which are direct but not very helpful answers. More likely however, would be a metaphoric answer like this: "You are confused because your mind is on fire."
It could mean many things: your mind is diseased, your understanding is clouded by fever, you are thinking too much, etc.. This failure to recognize these ancient preliterate divine/unconscious communications as metaphoric is perhaps the most serious failing of our Alien theorists, as they take it as factual. Wrong. Wrong.
7) Let me add another clue: the idiomatic aspect of the "telepathic communication" experienced in an Alien abduction / psychic visitation.
As I mentioned earlier, psychic presences always speak seamlessly in the local idiomatic language of the person being visited. There is never any confusion as to what they were saying, although as I've mentioned there could be considerable confusion as to what it meant. The Hebrew God always speaks the Hebrew of that time, the God of Joan of Arc always speaks 15th century French.
After all, the Aliens, who are supposedly physical beings, supposedly came here in a physical, technically advanced craft according to those who have been taken on board.
Yet from all reports this isn't the case as there is every indication that a familiar, flexible, idiomatic language is used by the Aliens. There is nothing mechanical or formal or awkward about the Aliens' speech. That is because the Aliens are psychic presences issuing from the unconscious and therefore using the hearers' own internal idiomatic language facilities.
So much for the clues that indicate that the visitation was psychic, and not a physical visitation by an Alien. As an aside, I remember one Alien theorist telling me that the effect of an Alien communication on humans is exactly the same as a psychic visitation, and that this was also true for all ancient physical visitations by Aliens.
What Alien theorists are saying, in effect, is that psychic visitations are indistinguishable from physical visitations which we know is patently untrue. It is also an absurd argument: either the Alien visitation is physical or it's not. You can't have it both ways.
Yet everything in the Old Testament and the course of history afterwards undeniably tells us that this event was concerned with spiritual, not genetic or physical, matters, and that the spirituality imparted was directly concerned with the moral/ spiritual conduct of the Hebrews from that point in time on.
What Moses and his successors did afterwards was not build a better widget or become more savvy because of some physical/ genetic information imparted by some Alien, but have one of those mysterious leaps in understanding that goes on all the time with human beings. What Moses and his successors did as a result of their leap was create a written theology ( the Torah) that would (hopefully) spiritually guide them so they would always be in spiritual alignment with the laws given them by Yahweh on the mountain top.
And please, please don't tell me that Yahweh's hundreds of moral and spiritual admonitions as expressed in the Torah are exactly the same moral and spiritual admonitions that our Alien visitors from 1000 light years away have always possessed. In other words the Aliens didn't eat pork either. Please. Please.
Alien theorists can dance up and down like medieval angels on the head of a pin, claiming Yahweh was a physical visitation by an Alien, but our deepest instincts tell us that this was a psychic/ spiritual visitation that changed the course of history.
These deep eruptions of the collective unconscious are always shrouded in mystery as to why they took the form they did, and why they occurred when they did, and why they had such an impact on the course of human events, but that is their nature.
If Alien theorists are going to insist that the tens of thousands of humanity's leaps in understanding over the course of human history are the result of physical visits by physical Aliens, then I suggest they read what Einstein, or Beethoven or Shakespeare or Newton had to say about the nature of their experience when their great insights came to them.
One thing I really dislike about Alien theorists is they have absolutely no respect for the stunning range of human intelligence and creativity.
You can be a couch potato and claim it is Aliens doing all this and continue eating chips in a kind of blissful ignorance, or or you can be man up and accept that what guides the human race at its deepest level is an unfathomable mystery.
I don't think so. We are looking for a most reasonable approach here, and by that I mean, we have to look for a proof that is based not on what is possible (because almost anything is possible) but what is probable.
Preliterate humans knew the difference between a physical and psychic visitation. They weren't stupid, in fact they were more tuned into the difference than contemporary man is. What's more, this is exactly what contemporary preliterate people would say about such things.
Thus, while the ancient humans who made these carvings can't speak to us, there is plenty of supporting proof from contemporary preliterate cultures of my position as well as from the other things left us by these ancient cultures (spiritual practices, art).
If any Alien theorist can supply me with any kind of proof of their position beyond mere speculation, you know my email.
I think if those who believe in Aliens were aware of how preliterate peoples lived and thought, and how different their minds were, they would walk away from their belief in Aliens being physical beings from outer space. I suggest you read the free PDF of my RIVER MOTHER: the Face of the Sphinx to get a good taste of this.
TO ALIEN ABDUCTIONS
Again, I'm not disputing that the abductees are being visited, just that the visitations were psychic not physical, just as the representations of these craft are not physical but psychic representations.
I could name more clues as to how to detect psychic visitaions, but first let me say something about the reality of such visitations. They can be blindingly real to people who have been abducted
This is especially relevant because modern western people have become strangers to their unconscious as compared to preliterate man, who seemed to have slipped between the conscious and unconscious realm quite easily.
2. Why now, at this point in time?
3. To what purpose?
I have no definitive answer to these questions, but have a few suggestions.
He is very intelligent, is a world traveler, and capable of expressing himself lucidly, but he tells me the physical world is the only world he has ever experienced. He has never had an intuition, or vision or heard voices and never dreams, but we know that to be scientifically impossible.
The truth is that he never recalls his dreams, i.e., his conscious mind must block out the memories of his dreams.
He opened the door and the chapel was ablaze with candles. He raced back to his companions and dragged them to see what he had seen. But the chapel wasn’t there, only the apartment house.
He looked at me for some kind of explanation as to what had happened and I told him he had a vision. But it wasn’t a vision, he said, it was real. I told him visions were real, but they were a psychic reality constructed by his unconscious that for all intents and purposes can seem as real as his shoes.
Now here’s the real point. When I brought this up several years later he had no recollection of ever telling me this or it ever happening. His conscious armor had repaired itself by forgetting an experience that threatened to topple his entire world view if he had fully admitted it into his conscious mind.
Here are the previous Ages/cycles, which are linked to the earth's 26,000 year precession. I've taken it from a a very detailed site THE GRAND AGES AND THE COMING OF AQUARIUS. The exact dates for Aquarius are hotly debated. Depending on who does the interpretation, the meaning of some of the Ages may differ.
As far as this interpretation goes, my own knowledge of preliterate cultures tells me that it is more likely that the Age of Taurus should be Communication and Writing while the Age of Gemini should be Control of Earth, Agriculture, as the first vestiges of Agriculture appeared around 6500 B.C. and the first Writing appeared around 3200 B.C..
What is important though, is that for the last four cycles, immense changes have taken place. If we believe in these cycles, or at least admit that they are somehow an indicator of great change in our understanding of the world and man, we have to suspect that we are in the midst of such a great change.
I haven't spoken about UFOs, that phenomena being, as I indicated earlier, most likely an entirely different matter despite the popular association of Alien abductions and UFOs.
|Secret military craft|
Some are forms of raw, natural electrical energy (you'd be surprised about how little knowledge science has of these electrical forms, including lightning), and some but not all of the the pure lights (below, L) are psychic phenomena similar to the Alien Phenomena in that they are announcements /effects of a new consciousness. You sort them out anyway you want to.
|Pure light UFOs, 1952|
There is one aspect of UFOs, however, that I still don't know what to think about, and that is the unbelievable speed and direction-changing ability of many UFOs, which indicates that something other than humans are piloting them as the G-forces would kill humans. Since these UFOs respond to radar and the approach of fighter pilots and the like, they are most likely not raw electrical energy, but something more sophisticated.
In addition, these UFOs are reported by serious observers (military, police, pilots) as being not only intensely illuminated but also having a distinct form and color range.
Here is my incomplete thinking about these craft: they are either interstellar, which I see as possible but not very likely, or they are secret, very advanced, remote-controlled military craft that use propulsion and masking/guidance systems far in advance of what is currently publicly known.
I am not arguing that life could not exist on such planets, as it is not only possible, but probable. What logic shows us, however, is the probability that a time window would exist here and also in some advanced civilization hundreds or thousands of light years away that would allow us to communicate back and forth (at close to light speed) is close to zero. Click here for a very good, detailed site on how this extremely remote possibility is computed.
Let me state the problem as simply as I can: imagine earth is a huge merry go round and its different colored horses are stages of all the civilizations that have existed, exist now, and will probably exist in the future, and imagine that the characteristics of the horses ( their lengths and color) approximate the time in hundreds of years that each civilization has existed, or will ( we think) exist in the future. Right now the Egyptian civilization from 3200 B.C. to 30 B.C. is the longest continuous civilization of which I am aware.
Modern civilizations are of shorter duration. The Roman empire only lasted 500 years. Our own technologically advanced western civilization began around 1600 (the time of Issac Newton, Leibniz, Galileo, et al) and is still growing strong as it passes its 400 year mark (2015 A.D.). Let's think of that technologically advanced civilization is represented by a red horse.
How much longer that civilization will exist before it self-destructs is open to question, as we have developed weapons capable of destroying all life on earth. We could be generous and say that it will last 3000 years (as long as ancient Egypt) before it goes up in smoke from warfare. (Or collision with a giant meteorite, who can say?) So our red horse would be 3000 years long.
Now let's posit that the same situation exists on our supposed Advanced Interstellar culture on its red horse which is also 3000 years long on its merry go round is attempting to contact our red horse (our technologically advanced civilization) just as our red horse is now attempting to do the same thing with our suggested interstellar advanced civilization using SETI.
In effect, the two can only communicate succesfully if the two red horses momentarily co-exist so that a rider on our red horse can reach out and touch a rider on the other distant red horse before they both slip out of reach of one another.
By touch I mean that there is enough time for the rider of our red horse to speak to the distant rider and then enough time for the distant rider to answer back to us. That is the absolute bare minimum
Remember, there is no way of telling when that "window of opportunity" will appear, nor is there is any way of of telling when, if ever, it will appear again. It is a matter of luck.
But that "window of oppratunity" that gives us the ability to speak back and forth is almost impossible to imagine if the two red horse civilizations on our two merry go rounds are thousands of light years apart.
What has to happen is that the red horse on the interstellar merry go round has to exist long enough to send out a signal and hope that a thousand light years later someone like our own red horse civilization will appear and last long enough to send a signal back to this advanced interstellar civilization hoping that the interstellar civilization will in turn last long enough (at least another thousand years) to receive it.
There is another more sophisticated explanation of the difficulties of interstellar communications in the link I just gave you and it is worth reading.
When it comes to actually visiting each other, take our imagined ability to travel at a speed of 200,000 kilometers per second ( 2/3 the speed of light). To travel to a distant planet that is 1000 light years away at 200,000 kps would take 1492 years. Isn't 1492 an interesting number to pop up? Like Columbus, our interstellar visitors, might be extremely disappointed in what they see upon landing.
Don't forget, our SETI communication from us to them would have been 1000 years old by the time they got it, and the planet earth when they landed here would be an additional 1492 years older, so the earth they would be seeing from their flying saucer would be 2492 older, i.e., if our signal had been sent in 2015 they would be looking down at earth as it would be in 4507 A.D.
As to what their own interstellar civililzation would look like when they take their 1492 year trip back to it, God only knows. it might not be even there.
All this this makes me believe that a physical interstellar craft being launched to investigate us is possible, but not highly probable.
Let me also say this if they are indeed interstellar: no communication of any kind has ever been issued from the craft themselves that we know of, nor have we ever come close to capturing one, or shooting one down, to prove what they are and how they were piloted. That leaves us with the very high probability that these are advanced craft of earth origin either made of light or with advanced masking capabilities.
One last observation. I have never seen a photo of a UFO showing it as a physical craft (not a craft reportedly made of light) that I believe was anything more than a photographic trick using models. Most special effects gurus agree with me on this by the way. Unfortunately, those UFOs usually look like the warming cover-dishes used in hotels to keep food hot. If those are the best designs that Alien beings from outer space could put together, we have nothing to fear.
I know of no preliterate myth or carving indicating an alien-like God appearing either out of the "mist" or from a vehicle of some type to create the world and human beings.
|Sumerian mythic figures|
Our current scientific theories are not much better, but there is some hard evidence backing them. Unfortunately they are all based on the assumption that the very earliest humans were primates who developed an upright stance and large brain size and that alone was sufficient reason for becoming human.
Those are physical characteristics, however, that also belonged to the primates we evolved from, i.e., primates who had existed for hundreds of thousands of years with the same upright stance and large brain size and would continue to exist for hundreds of thousands of years after the first "human" primates evolved from them. That is to say, for a very long time, both before and after the advent of a human primate, the two would have been physically identical.
That is because they cannot reach back into memory and create stories. They can only express current emotions or actions. Only humans can create stories. I suggest you take a look at the Appendix of ALICE HICKEY: Between Worlds (Excerpts 12-25) on this, as it is the human's ability and desire to create stories that really separates us from all other animals.
I thus see it as highly improbable that such an alien/human creation theory will ever gather enough hard evidence to outweigh the current scientific theory on the natural evolution of the human species. For one thing, the Alien theorists have never defined what being human means, i.e., have never defined the exact nature of the genetic change. What kind of thinking is that?
I'll tell you what kind it is: sloppy thinking.
That is about all I want to say about the possibility that Aliens created the human race. I'm ready for any hard balls you have that are as good as mine.
Here is another widely held Alien theorist position:
Every bit of rigorous scientific evidence suggests that the people of Stonehenge had the same intelligence and mental capabilities as the Parthenon Greeks. Therefore, if the Greeks could figure out how to build the Parthenon, the early Britons could figure out how to build Stonehenge. Period. End of Argument.
Here is the basic Alien theorist thinking: Aliens are superior beings from some unknown part of the universe who came to earth in prehistoric times.
They transported themselves via UFOs and assisted humans in the creation of their early cultures and the construction of the large stone monuments symbolizing those cultures. Furthermore, they have continued to visit us in order to evaluate our progress and guide us.
My own take on that is that while its accomplishments are indeed extraordinary, it is clear that our current scientific knowledge of the structure of matter is incomplete.
I doubt any scientist would contest that statement. In other words, despite the scientific method being strong enough to have allowed us to create atomic fission, fusion and weapons, it has not yet given us a complete rational explanation of the nature of matter. Scientists assure us they will eventually give us one, but I have my doubts. It will surely be more complete, but not totally complete.
I quote two lines from poet Richard Wilbur that pretty much sums up my thinking on this:
"Kick at the rock, Sam Johnson, break your bones:
But cloudy, cloudy is the stuff of stones."
But we also have to take a very hard look at one of the basic axioms of the scientific approach: that there is only one world, the physical world. In short, anything that cannot be physically observed and tested is an hallucination of some sort, a short circuit of the brain.
My own experience however, and that of Eastern civilizations, tells me that non-physical events do exist and are valid subjects for human inquiry.
To sum it all up, if you reduce our study of the world to what can be physically examined by the cientific method, you are eliminating a critical part of the human experience. It is a stupid prejudice.
The second assumption (that early humans didn’t possess the skills necessary to design, engineer and build their monumental stone sculptures) has no basis in fact. There is no hard scientific evidence thatthey didn't posses the necessary skills. It is merely hearsay by Alien theorists who almost to a man seem to have no scientific or anthropological knowledge of the native intelligence of preliterate humans. Nor do they seem to have have any practical heavy-stone construction and engineering knowledge worth mentioning.
What writing changed for the Greeks was not native intelligence, but how they looked at themselves and the world, i.e., the Greeks experienced a true, very rapid evolutionary change in the nature of their consciousness, not their intelligence. I'll say more about this later.
Literacy generally began around 1200 B.C. for most cultures (give or take several hundred years) with much earlier dates of 3200 B.C for the Egyptians and Sumerians.
For one thing, this means is that there are written records of the actual construction of the Greek Parthenon that simply make it impossible for alternative thinkers to attribute extraterrestrial assistance in the construction of the Parthenon.
Why alternative thinkers keep attributing extraterrestrial assistance to the construction of the pyramids when written and hieroglyphic records exist concerning their construction is simply beyond me. It is a bit sketchy in the case of the Giza Pyramids, much of it simply being lost, but there is a consistent stream of information about the other pyramids and structures.
Out of that, of course, eventually came a sense of art and architecture that could be passed down in great detail to future generations and in turn modified generation after generation, so that by 430 B.C, an extremely detailed tradition would exist, such as we see evidenced in the design of the Parthenon that was far more sophisticated than the rough stone structures of preliterate Greece, one of which is shown below, and which is not much different from Stonehenge.
|A structure from preliterate Mycenaean Greece c. 1300 B.C.|
The native intelligence of the Greeks didn’t increase or change between Mycenean Greece and the Greece of the Parthenon. What changed was the way the Greeks looked at the world because of literacy, i.e., they began to examine the world logically and record everything around them. This logical, examining way of knowing the Greeks termed logos knowing. Needless to say, the knowledge that came with literacy grew slowly at first then like a chain reaction until it was encyclopedic by 430 B.C. (500 years after the advent of Greek literacy.)
(As an aside, let me say that it is the height of idiocy to theorize that the ancient artistic/ spiritual Britons arranged stones and the like to guide advanced UFO craft in navigating around the globe. After all, if the craft could come across thousands of light years to visit us, I think they could find their way around the planet once they got here, don't you?)
Yet we shouldn’t let this supposed preliterate disinterest in explaining things convince us for one moment that these preliterate humans weren’t as natively intelligent as we are. Rather, their intelligence was intensely focused on spiritual matters and the artistic imitations of those concepts.
I have a great deal to say about this in my site on the preliterate construction of the Sphinx.
Although some gold and silver jewelry has survived from the Stone ages, all the other art forms (wood drawings and carvings, fabric drawings, etc) have perished, and these were undoubtedly the dominant materials used for art.
The only art form, outside of jewelry, that has survived en masse over the millennia are stone structures and rock carvings. They are everywhere, but their function remains uncertain in many cases. See megaliths
It should be obvious to anyone by this time that outside of the stone burial structures built by many of these cultures, stones—as stones—were also used in a spiritual, even a healing way, by prehistoric cultures. Their timelessness was Godlike, so it is no wonder they were seen as having healing powers.
There is increasing archeological evidence that the smaller, more numerous blue stones inside the larger sarsens at Stonehenge were used as part of a healing process. Why we don’t know, but it seems now that they were.
There isn't any doubt in anybody's mind today that high aesthetic capability is a certain indicator of high native intelligence. Fortunately, despite the ravages of time, certain non-stone art forms have been miraculously preserved (such as the cave drawings in Altamira and other European caves which date to some 18,000 to 35,000 years ago—Stone Age Europe.)
If you don’t think this statue is as sophisticated and mysterious as anything made by Brancusi or Picasso, you should wake up, or at the very least, read the squabbling interpretations of anthropologists and archeologists to show you how mysterious this figure really is because they don’t have a clue.
It’s only when you look at the statue as a metaphor for the Mother Goddess aka The First Mother (which is how the prehistoric humans would have looked at it) that the statue explains itself.
I rest my case.
There remain one other issue, however, that has to be addressed in regard to the arguments of the Alien theorists.
Of the numerous of cave drawings, clay sculptures, and rock carvings that have come down to us, there are a handful that portray a kneeling/standing human receiving something or looking up at, or praying to, a larger standing figure (Alien/God?).
There are also a few portraying a figure (Alien/God?) in some kind of vehicle, or fire, or clouds, descending from, or ascending to, the sky.
Again, we can choose to see them as physical visitations by Aliens or in the manner they have been interpreted for millennia: as spiritual/psychic visions of the Gods, or in Jungian terms: psychic visions created by the collective unconscious .
After all, these were cultures whose inhabitants were constantly experiencing voices and visions. The correct way to look at these great stories (Genesis, Gilgamesh, Iliad) is to see them as waking dreams that reflected the truths and beliefs that held these cultures together.
This is because the function of art in the preliterate world was not to become famous like Andy Warhol, but to imitate divinely inspired visions so as to reflect the divine order of World of the Gods.
Aligning the intent of this world with that of the Gods was what preliterate cultures and their art was all about. Period.
This is something our rational mindset has a hard time handling. I can assure you, however, that preliterate peoples didn’t, as their consciousness was one that was highly psychic and artistic by nature. Again, Julian Jaynes is must reading on this crucial difference if you truly want to understand these very different early cultures.
It might also help if you take a look at my ALICE HICKEY: Between Worlds and SOULSPEAK: The Outward Journey of the Soul.
For an excellent analysis and deconstruction of the Ancient Alien Theory, but from a much different perspective than mine, I suggest you visit Chris White's site Ancient Aliens Debunked.
Between his perspectibe and mine, the Ancient Alien Theory is given a thorough going ovet. You can then make up your own mind if it is worth considering as a serious theory.
