Are we just one of many life forms?

Can we really be the only ones?

200,000 miles into their journey to the moon, Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin relayed a cryptic message to the mission control centre. “Do you have any idea where the S-IVB is with respect to us?” This was a section of the rocket jettisoned away two days previously. The basis of his message was that they were being accompanied by an illuminated ‘L’ shaped object. In a recent documentary about the mission Aldrin stated in an interview:

"There was something out there, close enough to be observed, and what could it be? Now, obviously the three of us weren't going to blurt out, 'Hey, Houston , we've got something moving alongside of us and we don't know what it is, you know?'"

Another Astronaut Major Gordon Cooper was open about seeing unknowns on numerous occasions. In a taped interview he said:

"For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA , our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public."

On the simple statistical basis by which we make most decisions in our lives, I find it curious that so many people opt to close their minds to the probability that amongst the millions of stars, planets and solar systems no other life forms exist. I believe this is due to the symbolic vagueness of our fundamentally religious grounding, whether one is a believer or not, and the effect of the film industries fictionalisation of UFOs and aliens that ensure that such thoughts are associated to those of less sound mind.

You can find the roots of any major established religion based within ancient Egyptian teachings or before. If you were to investigate the actual meanings in for example Judaism or Christianity you might recognise that they are symbolisms of the star systems worshiped during Egyptian times where many interesting facts point to a civilization with influences beyond this planet.

Many accounts of extraterrestrial visitation and settlement exist in our ancient history and none more compelling than that of the Dogon people who have at the centre of their ancient religious teachings, knowledge about a small red star in the Sirius system which they learned via visitors from another star system. It is invisible to the eye and so difficult to observe -- even through a telescope -- that stargazers only identified and photographed it as recently as 1970.

For those of open mind, you may wish to watch the following formal press conference and then tell me if you really still believe that we are alone?

I am extremely suspicious of suggestions that the Dogon people adopted scientific theory particularly those associated to the colonising years of the 18th and 19th Century. I think there was much learning by scientists during that period that have been claimed as their own and without doubt a great deal of misinformation circulated by colonial powers. The stories behind the ancient civilisation of Great Zimbabwe is a stark example of colonialism and its suppression and fabrication of the truth.

Fascinating stuff you got here. Love it.

To the ancients, Sirius was described as ruddy (reddish). Could the companion have been a red giant that recently? The small star, though, is no longer red, but white--a white dwarf of heavily-condensed matter.

As far as the Dogon are concerned, there is no way for us to know if the story is borrowed from 19th century scientists or originating with the Dogon. Alas, this does not prove much, but it is intriguing in its possibilities.
