Val is a life-long student of psycho-philosophy of living, and a devoted practitioner of many techniques enhancing personal evolution.

Monopolizing the Truth

It appears historically (and at times hysterically) evident how every single epoch is displaying certain symptoms of intellectual arrogance, as they claim to be "holding the bag with Truth". Paradigms refusing to give space to new ideas seem only explainable by academic careerism of their proponents.

Those highly educated members of science community just can't stand the idea of having wasted all that time in "wrong" studies. Another painful notion would be losing all that social status and scholars' authority - not to mention the question of bare livelihood.

It's a kind of sad that so many brilliant brains, even amateurs can't get support from the mainstream science, some of them being even ridiculed for daring to have out-of-the-box ideas.

A number of them have lost their careers, their livelihood, for nothing more than trying to offer something new as a possibility. Just a possibility to be explored, maybe even with certain convincing indicators that could make probabilities out of those possibilities.

Speculation or Fact

At the expense of turning science into religion whose taboos are not to be challenged, old schools are actually obstructing the progress. While it may, or may not be a major issue in exact sciences, in those that lean towards interpretation it is a regular feature.

Those of our interest here are anthropology, archaeology, and consequently history of the mankind.The theoretical battle between evolutionists and creationists is just fierce enough, so the third party of alternative historians has been pushed out of the battlefield by both warring schools.

These new brave theorists are stating that man was neither created by a deity nor in a long line of animal ancestors all the way down to amoeba. Instead, they are theorizing, that space visitors genetically crossed their kind with an ape roaming around the face of earth and looking like the most qualified candidate.

Not Evenly Distributed "Space-Gene"

These days we can easily witness among our human race those specimens who benefited more by that genetic engineering event, and they are quite recognizable among folks of certain humanistic, artistic, and intellectual excellence or affinity.

On the other hand, I am only partially joking when I place those with pronounced animalistic urges like violence, territoriality, greed, and craving for power - into the category of primates. They may look like homo sapienses, but their human part is at the service of the animalistic part. I am still thinking where to place those who are texting-while-driving.

To Each Their Own Opinion

I have no impressive credentials to cross swords with all those highly learned scholars on either side of the chess board who are sneering at any version of the idea about human kind being the result of such genetic engineering. Even if I had such precious credentials, I wouldn't bother getting into an intellectual fight - hmm, maybe there is not enough of a monkey in me after all.

For quite a while now, science is not any longer a monopoly of scientists, and folks all over the globe are coming up with inventions, theories, and discoveries. Of course, that alone may not serve as enough of an umbrella for every crazy idea imaginable, but those with an open mind are also the same folks who are not much of intellectual snobs falling for credentials as an automatic proof of a brilliancy. So, let us all use our own logic as the only tool.

Great Pyramid - also a Great Evidence?

There seems to be an agreement among the "official" archaeologists and those proponents of alternative history that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built some time during so called Bronze Age. The only tools available at that time that would be used for shaping those blocks had to be chisels made of some material that would require constant sharpening.

I am not an expert in metallurgy, and so I only know what my logic is telling me - that using those chisels for cutting those blocks could be compared to cleaning the Statue of Liberty with tooth brushes. However, do we really need a material evidence in order to be logical?

Let's Use Some Layman Logic

A maxim often used in science (unfortunately in religion as well) says: "An absence of evidence is not an evidence of absence". Even if we exclude all numerous remnants from ancient history around the globe that testify about a shocking level of intelligence responsible for their architectural wonder - the Great Pyramid should be sufficient as an evidence of an extraterrestrial technology at work.

There is also that painful question to every evolutionist - the question about that enormous evolutional gap between tribal societies and a civilization with a blooming knowledge in mathematics, astronomy, medicine, physics, chemistry - not to mention architecture of some marvels that our modern technology could not duplicate.

Like on Earth - so in Space / Heavens

Now, almost every cultural tradition has it that "gods" will return some day. Ancient aliens theorists don't hesitate to call those gods extraterrestrial visitors, and their claims sit well in my mind as highly possible. Apparently, most of the world's population not only believe in the existence of more advanced civilizations in space, but also believe in their having visited us in a distant past.

However, the problem with that belief, probably amplified by science fiction movies and literature is that we somehow see them as threatening to the human race. Namely, it's truly amazing how quickly we go paranoid - mostly because we judge everyone by our own nature. Just look how we picture our Christian God.

Ever since we heard that "God created man in His own image" - and unable to prove that "resemblance" by our acting more "godly", we established that "resemblance" by giving our God human characteristics. So there we go - NOW we are alike. Thus, God can "see", He can "get angry", He can "punish" us, but then - when He is not too busy punishing, He also "loves everyone unconditionally"(?!) For Pete's sake (no pun intended), we even gave him a beard as we portrayed Him as an old dude!

We Portrayed Our God as that Dude with White Beard.

Earthlings, We Don't Need Your Dictionary

Indeed, we are so prone to this ascribing human qualities to every celestial or space entity, regardless whether divine or flying in fancy spaceships. Hollywood didn't want to complicate movies by making up some space language, so our E.T.'s are speaking fluent American English.

Maybe because it was one of the easiest ones to learn. Surely not something like Latin language, I did it for a few years and well, no wonder it's called a "dead" language. Schwartzy even gave it a little German spice in the "Terminator". We readily bought it, why not.

Friends or Foes

So, what is generally believed to be "their agenda"? Why would they be arrogant? After all, if it's true that they made us by crossing their kind with ours - we got THEIR transfusion, they didn't get OURS, so why would they act like us?

All joking aside, imagine an untold millennia older civilization than ours. Even if they were also a genetic combination of some other superior beings and an animal - hopefully not a crazy monkey - their super long evolution would have made dysfunctional those animalistic parts in their brain.

Let's use some more logic here - could you possibly imagine an Einstein in a boxing ring? The genius dude was not only peaceful, but he was so gentle that he, as a matter of fact liked using baby voice when he talked to his kid - actually for longer than it was beneficial to the kid's development. Look at his eyes with that fixed smiling expression.

Getting back to our E.T.'s - they could not have an arrogant bone in them, no tendencies to conquer, or kill, or hurt in any way. By a simple logic, anybody who would be so intelligent to come from the outer space would also be too intelligent to have any primitive intentions towards us.

Welcoming Brass Music - or Deadly Rockets Pointing Up?

They must know us enough not to overrate our friendliness. Not that they could not wipe us and our fancy nukes off the surface of this planet in an instant - if they wanted to. But the fact that they haven't done it so far means that they are friendly.

So why do we need this image of some "cosmic hitlers and attilas" ? Haven't we invented more than enough enemies of our own kind? (See my hub ""National Boogie-man No.1). Why not imagine our space brothers as peaceful blue avatars, capable of healing with a touch, and producing a contagious blissfulness with a smile?

Who knows, if they ever come back, they may refresh our memory about how to build a few more pyramids - instead of those idiotic H-bomb launchers. Also, after seeing the flaws of their first genetic experiment on us, they may do a better job - this time around REALLY creating us "in their own image".

No beard this time.

      Lollyj lm - What a nice comment - thank you so much, I am delighted that you found it interesting and humorous. At this point I would also come up with a few compliments to your own interests in these matters, but heck - don't I already sound enough as a friendly alien, I might blow my cover LOL. - Have yourself a great evening, and happy hubbing! - Val

      Paula - So much to hope for. If there was a parade of optimists, I would be marching in the first lines, but not so much because I am counting on others to fulfill my hopes - but counting on myself to keep changing that man in my body with new "technologies" of thinking and new ways of processing reality.

      Indeed, if there is an undiscovered "space-gene" in all of us (Einstein must have had it), there is no more noble goal to pursue than keep exploring that vast universe in our minds - to locate it, and to become it.

      Hari - Thank you for the nice comment. It remains to be seen what will prevail in the times to come. So far it looks that all camps are insisting upon their own doctrines. There are some signs that quantum theory is considering the existence of god, but that god - if ever "proven" is not likely to be ANYTHING like those of the existing organized religions.

      Opinions, evidence & logic....Hmm, how dare we?? LOL. I'm in that small circle of people who don't necessarily allow Titles and/or alleged credentials to blind me. Fine & dandy and Congratulations to those who have spent the required amount of time and money to become what they love to believe is an "Expert" on any particular topic or category of life.....

      The Universe is vast, in fact, massive. WE as the most intelligent of creatures thus far (at least on the earth we know about) can actually put our brain cells to work and come up with amazing, magical thoughts, ideas, possibilities. Who is so perfect and complete that they would close their eyes and shut down their mind to any and all other possible scenarios?

      Well, I can tell you without doubt...not I. I am open, eager, curious ~willing able and ready to pursue all things. Ongoing study, research and discoveries is what keeps us not just surviving but thriving, growing and becoming all that is possible now and perhaps the future.

      Great work here, Val....So much to ponder. I always hope that mankind goes forward with open eyes, open mind and loving hearts...! Peace, Paula

      MizBejabbers - You have mentioned quite a few of my favorite authors. I am especially fond of Graham Hancock - I even like the man's calm voice, let alone his enormous expertise in those ancient matters. He's been everywhere, seen everything, turned every stone.

      During my one day visit to Mayan ruins Chi-che-nitza near Cancun, Mexico, I experienced something that's impossible to describe; for a moment I sensed those times so strongly that only Mayans were missing from that picture. Looking at their observatory I just couldn't fathom that they could be at the same time so knowledgeable and also so cruel.

      But then I thought of our modern times, and saw the same picture, wars, greed, crime - side by side with a cyber technology. Being an optimist, I believe we are evolving, although slowly.

      John - There is a TV documentary series called "Ancient Aliens", and it has been a treat to my beliefs about our true origin, and also to my passion for mystery of man and his still unused potential. I shamelessly admit that I have been watching the same episodes over and over, never having enough of those fascinating archaeological sites.

      It's almost impossible to believe that the mainstream science chooses to ignore all that evidence - but well, injustice is done to human intelligence in many other areas, so we shouldn't be surprised.

      There is also a documentary done titled "The Chariots of Gods". I am happy to see that you share the same interest in this fascinating subject.

      And thank you for a nice comment. I am going to read your hub now.

      Modern Science has blinded many from seeing obvious. Metaphysical and science of faith is stronger in us but we fail to agree upon them because they cannot be proved. But few decades earlier many beliefs were just accepted though were not proven so as we progressed in science we go back to proving the obvious that we fail to acknowledge in the present. What is not science will also become science.

      Well written and thought provoking. Thanks.

      Really good, Vlad. I think your leaving it open to speculation without laying down any particular belief is excellent. Perhaps the possibilities will get through to a few people who are seeking answers. Edgar Cayce is the one who opened my eyes that there was something more than the dogma taught by my then-church. In fact, my then-husband was going through an atheistic period, which he soon got over, and I almost did. I remembered all the religious training that I'd received in a 6 credit hour religion course I took in college, and it had opened my mind to other possibilities. Now I'm grateful to people like Cayce, Von Daniken, Graham Hancock, Sam Osmanigich, Adrienne Goff, and Steve and Barbara Rother, just to name a few who have given me different perspectives of our world and its origins.

      I loved this hub, Val. I would never discount the possibility that the human race as we are now are a result of alien intervention in the evolutionary line, or Creation if you like. Ever since reading "Chariots of the Gods" by Eric Von Daniken I have been open to the idea. Many civilizations including Aztecs have the belief that God or gods came from the skies. There is an island off Brazil where the entire population believe they descended from aliens and they worship them in their religion.

      Not all movies have portrayed aliens as enemies or wanting to take over the Earth. I wrote a hub called "A Trip To Mars (Heaven Ship/Himmelskibet)" about a movie made in 1918. You may like to check it out.
