A Quick Tour of What's Here


The Story So Far (Updated 29th May 2012) :-

This was supposed to be plausible, but the truth has a habit of being far-fetched; that's why it's always hard to get at. Anyway, here goes :-

What I Think

My mind is ever-changing on human evolution. I like James Howard's theories about how key hormones played a major part in hominid to human development with some correlation with others branches of investigation into primate syndromes (SIDS, MS); and Lloyd Pye's alien intervention theory has physical evidence backing it up in the form of the the Starchild Skull. Here is a video of a talk (53.9MB) given by Lloyd Pye in London in 2011 about this fascinating 900 year old skull found in a South American cave a few decades ago :-

Then, there's the Aquatic Ape Theory as propounded by Elaine Morgan, and related meanderings like The Passionate Ape by Craig Hagstrom. Let's have a look at each of these (in no particular order).

First, see the Lloyd Pye Genetics Video (23.4MB) for some background information.

Mitochondrial DNA evidence can be used to date mankind's DNA to a mere 200,000 or so years old. Chromosomal analysis shows mankind's 23 pairs having a fused 2nd and 3rd chromosome pair, compared with chimps, gorillas and orang-utans, who all have 24 pairs.



Between 4.5 and 1.5 billion years ago, aliens saw a planet forming at a distance from its star where water would be a liquid. They paid visits to it periodically to keep nudging the evolutionary direction on it towards consciously-aware lifeforms. Nature plus nudges eventually got as far as hominoids. It required direct intervention for a less primitive species to appear. The last of the hominoids still had 48 chromosomes, but they were too in tune with nature, and not masters of it. Aliens visited and genetically engineered a more consciously sentient species about 250,000 years ago. Humans became the first artificial 46-chromosome hominoids walking the Earth. Nudges were not enough and direct genetic alteration coupled with chromosome fusion had become necessary. Despite these aliens being really advanced, they did not do a perfect job, and humans had many genetic defects : perpetual hair and nail growth, birth defects, downs syndrome (lapse back to extra chromosome), immune system attacks host in many ailments (for example Multiple Sclerosis), allergies, weaker bones and muscles, gullible, impressionable, easily governed and controlled, general feeling of malaise and not being at one with nature etcetera. Other species are not so vastly afflicted with problems, with only 30 or 40 genetic defects compared with humans' 4 thousand or so. Other species of plants and animals were fashioned to help us survive (wheat, domesticated animals).

Side note speculation about Neanderthals : they could also have been an alien genetic experiment, but they, like their predecessors, were too in tune with nature and not masters of it. Somehow, they became extinct about 30,000 years ago, despite their larger brains and similar cultural development to humans. It's almost as if we weren't meant to have any "close in intelligence" rival species who were physically stronger than us.

During WW2, this experimental human species discovered ways to rip apart the space-time continuum with fission reactions, and this piqued the aliens' interest. As they came closer to observe and safeguard us from folly, some crashed on the surface of Earth (Roswell etcetera), and eventually their existence became known to the governments around the developed world. The ruling powers decided to trade alien technology for Earth specimens with them. The need for the truth to be kept secret from the public has become ever more important, if those ruling powers want to keep control over the human populaces of the world. If humans ever realised their true origins, it would make us wake up and see that we are all equal but different, and that a hierarchical society may work for certain species, but not for one engineered for enlightened spiritual existence, and guardianship of the life on this planet. We must surely love all creatures great and small. Our consciousness has been conditioned to accept obvious fallacies as the "truth". For example, that the hemp plant is "dangerous to your health", whereas rotten fruit allowed to ferment to produce alcohol is not, and the direct evidence of what happened on 9-11 being completely misinterpreted as terrorists hijacking planes and causing steel towers to melt and pancake collapse at freefall speeds. This mass acceptance keeps us inert, distracted, timid and non-threatening to the powers that top this anti-nature hierarchical society. Someone somewhere is pushing fairy tales and we are lapping them all up as reality! You only have to look at the manic and violently-enforced level of "faith" people have in the fairy tales known as institutionalised religions, to know that we are being ridiculously deceived from birth!

The Story

Life on planet Earth was engineered by the benevolent, conscious-life-favouring leaning of the laws of this universe. Not one, but two types of prokaryotes (primitive single-celled bacteria) appeared on a volatile volcanic planet 4 billion years ago. These produced oxygen. Later, eukaryotes (much more delicate) appeared just as suddenly, and started preparing the planet for more advanced life forms. Then a huge smattering of phyla sprang up miraculously, the only modern day relic being the horseshoe crab. Then a history of sudden appearances of new species, followed by extinction of old ones, paving the way for increases in organism complexity. Scientific evolution explains gradual change, not sudden flourishing of vast amounts of new species, that just happen to fit into the correct progression of life to ultimately form intelligent beings. Earth is testimony that the laws governing the flow of energy in this universe, are stacked in such a way as to favour the development of conscious entities within it. As a clever by-product, these creatures would have to reflect the kind and gentle nature of the laws that created them, otherwise they would not successfully survive and evolve without destroying each other. To contend that the "physics" of the universe boil down to some mathematical principles formulated in the mind of one of its products, is utter foolishness and stinks of egotism. For that product to contend it is made "in the image of God" whereas other species aren't, is willful ignorance. With the "kind and dynamic" laws of physics in place, all life in the universe is "made in the image of God"!

Morphic resonance may explain why life always seems to evolve in the patterns of form that they do - a combination of universal memory built in to the space-time continuum, and patterns that survive well, being etched into this memory for future generations (or current ones) to repeat.

James Howard's theories on the role played by testosterone, DHEA and melatonin in human evolution are very interesting and seem to explain an enormous number of human traits and developments. They may well be key to showing the path from hominids to humans without recourse to alien intervention or any aquatic period.

The aquatic ape theory is another possible explanation as to how humans came to be here. However, having read some of the evidence to the contrary, I am beginning to have my doubts about this theory. Anyway, it's worth having a look at Elaine Morgan's classic book "The Scars of Evolution", which fits many human quirks and anomalies into a plausible framework for the classic Darwinian evolutionary process to produce us. The most up-to-date Morgan publication is The Aquatic Ape Hypothesis which details the theory with more references and facts backing it up. A list of human anomalies addressed include :-
Here is a good summary of regarding ourselves as aquatically-evolved (although a lot of it has been disproved) :-

CHARACTERISTICSHUMANSAPESSAVANNAHAQUATICS

Enlarged sebaceous glandsYes--Yes
Psychic tearsYes--Yes
Loss of vibrissaeYes--Yes
Volitional breath controlYes--Yes
Eccrine thermoregulationYes--Yes

The aquatic phase took place more than 5 million years ago. Since then, Homo has had 5 million years to re-adapt to terrestrial life. It is not surprising that the traces of aquatic adaptation have become partially obliterated and have gone unrecognised for so long. But the traces are still there as the table indicates.

A lot of direct evidence is cited which can easily be verified, but cannot easily be explained, unless the aquatic theory is adopted. An example is the dropping of the larynx in babies at about 3 to 6 months old, so that breathing can be done through just the mouth. Before the drop occurs, breathing is only normally and easily done through the nose (where the air is filtered), and this allows the baby to breast feed whilst breathing. When the descent causes problems, we get many cot deaths at around this age. However, I am beginning to subscribe more to the theory that SIDS has its causes in increased testosterone levels : a theory that additionally explains baldness through testosterone deflecting DHEA away from its intended target tissues in the body, and which also accounts for ethnic differences in SIDS incidence, as well as higher frequency amongst smoking mothers.

What makes this theory so appealing is that most human anomalies can be seen in aquatic mammals, and seem to be explained if we assume that our predecessors spent a few million years in a semi-aquatic environment, like a rain forest, where dips in the water would be common. The savannah theory looks very shaky when we mention these human quirks, and the explanations given by the likes of Desmond Morris are weak and contrived. But, as I stated above, AAT is looking increasingly shaky and a lot of cited evidence seems much more contrived in the light of recent discoveries in DNA mechanics in humans compared with all other species, lending more to the intervention theory.

The Alternative Theory

Some slides are available on Lloyd Pye's site. Also, there is a good book on the subject.

Such large anatomical and psychological discrepancies between us and our nearest ancestors cannot all be explained away using the AAT. Ancient Sumerian tablets detail aliens that came here thousands of years ago and genetically engineered us from the extant hominoids. They later made wheat and various domesticated animals to sustain us, since they made us deliberately weak, subservient and faulty, so as to be controlled by them. We were too weak and fearful to effectively survive on this planet without their help. They were gods to us - our creators and able to punish or reward as they saw fit. You can see how this meshes with what don Juan the Yaqui Indian shaman was saying in one of the "Quotes of the Year". However, Juan states that "the sorcerers of ancient Mexico ... reasoned that man must have been a complete being at one point, with stupendous insights, feats of awareness that are mythological legends nowadays. And then, everything seems to disappear, and we have now a sedated man." They say that humans had already evolved before aliens imposed their consciousness onto us and subdued us. This is also an interesting theory, and may explain such ancient artefacts as the pyramids and the stones of Baalbek. Anyway, here are some objections to AAT :-

The Current State of Play

We anti-nature clever apes currently have a society which has developed weird control-infatuated institutions that irradiate their citi-sheeps' brains with carefully-researched thought-controlling electromagnetic radiation under the guise of mobile phones and the like, has plans to slowly introduce chips into everyone's bodies, disguised as the right to "buy and sell" securely, and sprays poisonous substances into the air we breathe from photographed planes that "don't exist", to make us ill and less able to put up a fight against loss of civil liberties. We are currently researching how to make tiny body-invasive nanobots which can take control of any corporeal or mental function, under the guise of curing the incurable. If I could choose the direction of research today, it wouldn't be military, genetic, nanobotic, or clandestine. It would be in making a better, longer-lasting and more stimulating environment for healthy human beings to share their lives in; not the poisonous, grey concrete jungles we are all forcibly herded into under the "free" choice of work or starve, and where money becomes your goal, not natural, spiritual fulfilment. Certain plants that grow naturally upon the Earth's surface are deemed illegal in this society, though it is obvious to anyone with sense that this is madness, especially when the only legal recreational drugs are proven poisonous to our bodies, and can kill in overdose (nicotine and alcohol). The propaganda surrounding other drugs like heroin, is venomously negative, and the actual experiences expose it as lies. The law-makers and propagandists consistently demonstrate confusion between the effect of the drug and the effect of the black market. This deliberate ignorance betrays a hidden agenda; that such laws and conditioning are only enforced to keep the clandestine elite (the government-controlling Illuminati) in power, and the rest of us blind to the facts due to secretly-instilled debilitation and bad education. All sorts of ways of keeping a stupid creature (who only actively uses a quarter of their cerebral mass) even more stupid, have been devised and implemented. It is getting to the point now where things which give me great spiritual pleasure and enlightenment, cause great consternation and anger in the microwave-controlled masses surrounding me. The Illuminati's agenda of complete world population control strikes me as them being bored with destroying everything with hate. There's nothing left for the elite to pursue but control. They think that love is too flimsy a foundation for society, and that force always gets results quickly, albeit for the short term future. However, one only has to look at human physiology to see that, above all other mammals on this planet, we are the ones who are designed to love each other sexually and passionately.
Most of these observations can only indicate the ungovernable need for physical love in human beings - something that is not at all evident in society as it stands. No wonder people are generally unhappy with their lot. No wonder so much suppressed sexual perversity exists.

All these observations point to the fact that humans seem to be designed for love, sometimes at the cost of a safer survival blueprint, because love, benevolence, and compassion parallel the feelings of the energy of the very atoms that make everything up. Everyone "knows" that consciously going against the energy flows always results in bad events later (yet they never seem to learn from this, which is why they think that "life is a bad lot, but, hey what the hell..." rather than "wow, there's never a dull moment!"). And it's quite obvious that, compared to other species, humans are as soft as shit! So, perhaps our society is supposed to be founded on love and sex, not mistrust, paranoia and sexual suppression / distortion. When you realise this, the perception that the common man is unimportant compared with government figures, evaporates. Everyone innately has the same potential for love - this is a physiological fact. So we should be living as a set of equal worth cooperatives, not a gigantic global hierarchy. The Illuminati can never see any strength in love as a foundation stone of societies. What a waste of potential spiritual development, and over all those centuries, through inaction, fear and lethargy, we are still allowing exactly the same blinkered punishment / reward existence to flourish. We still let their hate frighten us. Jesus tried to redirect the masses along the correct path, but the elite roused enough hate and fear in the emotions of the masses, that crucifying him seemed a course of action the masses could become resigned to. I can hear the crowd's thinking now - "Execution is only to be expected if you motivate people away from the hate-based society we are accustomed to." Surely it should have dawned on us impressionable creatures by now, that those who try to share the truth with everyone else, end up marginalised, stigmatised, ostracised or dead, and that this cannot be allowed to continue. The wise and open-minded should be elevated to the positions of chief directors, educators and judges, not those who are rich through brutality, bloodlines and a knack for obfuscation. We have to move from hate to love.

The Abnormal Ways of Mankind

The way the world is now, seems very strange to a purist viewpoint like mine. All humans have to accept the ways and customs of an iniquitous society, in which, for no forgivable reason, the "Westerners" have all the food and resources, while billions in the third world starve and struggle for education. This madness is accepted because the invisible monster that society has become, is regarded by most to be outside of their control, and, hence, has to be tolerated as is. Facts : 1) Unless you contribute something towards this amorphous faceless structure that seems like an unfair cage, then you will starve to death. You have to go to work, even though you are only making a number bigger. You have to educate the kids in the ways of society, even though you may not agree with its track record of malignancy. 2) Try to change this state of affairs, and force will be used to suppress you. Some spiritually enlightened humans have been able to see outside of this box, realising things like the need for a 7-day week structure to fit our lives around are ludicrous, and that language and science are methods of refining the thought-forms of humans into commonly understood and anticipatable categories. It amazes me how upset people get by their own brain's conditioned interpretation of air vibrations on their eardrums, when the words are insulting, but the intentions jocular or opposite. Too much importance has been placed on words. People commonly think that humans are the most important species of life on this planet. If you accept the introduction of new species to this planet (or the genetic alteration of species extant here) by outside forces or life forms, then how arrogant of us to think that the buck would necessarily stop here at the "human" stage, when we can't even trust ourselves, and, rather than advance life's lot, employ our best knowledge to create ever bigger guns and locks. The governments of the world may be party to the exact nature of the external forces at work in shaping life on Earth. After all, there are plenty of better thinkers and philosophies out there to choose a wiser way forward, but they are always deliberately suppressed or marginalised, as if a threat rather than an improvement. The next stage may be imminent and a massive depopulation of humans will become necessary to advance to this next stage of life's development. Judging by current climes, it seems this mass culling is already slowly taking place. If humans are just a stepping stone towards who knows what, then don't fool yourself into thinking that the governments' puppeteers have respect for human life; anything you get from the media is just lip service in the light of the bigger picture. The figureheads in government are as powerless as you or I, inside this cage called society. The Nazis said "Arbeit macht Frei" (work makes freedom), and this is what we are forced to do to feed ourselves and our loved ones. The Jews who walked under that banner, inevitably ended up dead in disgusting conditions. Judging by society's desperate lurches towards depravity, this is the way we all end up. Look at some of the recent ideas of advancement that are coming out now - genetic engineering of humans and cloning, biochemical interference with natural processes like sleep and sexual congress, augmentation of bodies with electronic devices, and technological alteration of all foodstuffs worldwide. This is utter madness - it shouldn't have to be such that all species of life are ultimately mere vassals to corporate society's unnatural and perverted money-making whims.

Browsers I sometimes use :-

All were tested with this script (uses frames and hammers the browser) and all modern versions handle it well. IMO, MJ Browser is the best browser (I may be biased here!), then Opera (whose HTML5 support is second to none currently, but whose Print Preview facility is woeful and should be rewritten from scratch), Firefox, Safari (wants you to have crappy Quicktime all the while!), and finally, IE7, which is last because of its inferior Javascript engine - see my Hangman page, even though IE6 and IE8+ can handle it! If you apply Windows XP SP3, then IE7 will work too. Opera has a drawback in that it constantly writes to the registry when it is downloading. Consequently, if you are watching YouTube videos, some anti-trojan software may be constantly triggered to investigate any potential risky changes. Safari can sometimes appear as if it is hung, or take an incredibly long time to load up. It also has problems navigating around frame-based websites. Its GUI is proprietary and cannot be changed, even with products like Windows Blinds.

You will probably need a broadband connection with the browser hammerer's supplied delay of 200 milliseconds, but you can easily tweak this with a text editor.
