Time Travel: Proved!!!

Tags: , , , ,

I have often had the desire to travel back in time, to observe events or meet people about whom I have only read.  Always a “doubting Thomas” by nature, I would love the opportunity to travel back and witness Biblical events like Moses’ encounter with the burning bush, the parting of the Red Sea, God’s presence with the wandering Israelites in the form of a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night, Jesus bringing his deceased friend Lazarus back to life, or Jesus’ resurrection and meeting with his disciples that first Easter evening almost 2,000 years ago.

The skeptic in me thinks that I might discover that these events are not as they have been recorded and perhaps, not at all miraculous.  Yet, in my soul, I believe that all of these things happened in just the way they have been written.

I wonder further – if I met the heroes or villains from history, how might I assess them?  In my time travels, might I have considered George Washington a man of integrity or a pompous ass?  If I had gotten to know Attila the Hun or Adolf Hitler, might I have liked them personally or considered them friends?  If I encountered any of a number of people over the centuries who have been deemed Saints, would I have assessed them as devout and committed or mentally disturbed?

Until today, I considered these ponderings merely idle reflection.  Now, however, I have seen the light:  people have been traveling through time since its beginnings.  Perhaps, H.G. Wells’ story The Time Machine was not a work of fiction, but a biographical account from a time traveler.  As evidence, I present the video below.  It is a film clip from a Charlie Chaplin movie premier in 1928.  Note the woman in the dark hat who appears to be talking on a cell phone.  Is this proof positive of the validity of time travel?  Or, has this video been doctored? 


The Alien in the Mirror

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Based upon the Dan Brown novel of the same name and starring Tom Hanks, the film “The DaVinci Code” wove a complex mystery akin, in a way, to the old ’49ers’ search for gold.  These men would sift their pans repeatedly, day after day, week after week, in the hope of finding a nugget of the precious yellow metal.  In the process, they had to mire their way through a lot of worthless silt.  But those who found gold amassed their little treasures, nugget by nugget, until they’d found enough to add up to a significant sum. Hanks’ character, Tom Langdon, had to sift through a lot of metaphorical silt as well: red herrings, double crosses, and dead ends as he unearthed and labored to interpret a number of cryptic symbols that brought him to a very controversial conclusion.  Whether or not we agree with Mr. Brown’s conclusion (we don’t), one thing in this tale is inarguable: on the surface, things are not always what they seem.

The same holds true for many things on this planet, including the theory behind the origin, evolution, and current status of the Aryan race.

The very sound of those words, “Ayran race” still sends shivers down my spine.  My gut reaction to those words is to picture the cruelest monster ever seen in my lifetime: Adolf Hilter.  As twisted as Hitler’s dream of uniting Germany became, he’d based it upon a long-held theory that the Ayrans, from whom the Germans were said to descend, were a race of super beings.  Thus did this fiend seek to purge his nation of the Jewish people who held no claim to Ayran ancestry.

The world waged a long and horrific war predicated upon the theory of the Ayran race!  So, who were the Ayrans?  Or rather, who did they become?

The theory in question states that more than 18,000,000 years ago, the progenitors of the Aryans colonized Planet Earth.  Little is known about them, other than the facts that they possessed a higher level of intelligence and conscience than mere mortals.  Described as giants and thought at first to be “fallen angels,” they were also much taller than human beings.   To the earth — the Middle East, to be exact — the Ayrans brought their culture, intellect, and superior genetics as well as a root language.

The Ayrans are attributed with the design and construction of The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.  These encompassed the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Temple of Athena at Euphesus, the Mausoleum of Mausollos at Halicarnassus, the Collossus of Rhodes, and the Lighthouse of Alexandria.  Of these ancient wonders, only one remains standing: the Great Pyramid.  Because no one, to this very day, can truly explain how mere mortals built such fantastic structures, our ancient ancestors deemed them the work of super beings who came down from the sky (what we would call them “aliens” today). 

And if you think that this is nothing but legend, you’d best think twice.  Not very long ago, the Japanese assigned a team of most gifted mathematicians and engineers to recreate the Great Pyramid.  The team was constrained to use the same materials found in the Great Pyramid itself, as well as the tools available at the time that the original edifice was built.  And yet, the team failed.  The spaces between the blocks in their pyramid were too wide.  No matter what they did, they not could reduce those tolerances down to that of the original structure!

As gifted as they were, the aliens who built the Great Pyramid and the remaining six Wonders were not snobs.  They were said to have assimilated with the peoples of the ancient world, including the Semites, the Aegeans, the Egyptians, and even the Hindus and the Buddhists.  I mean that word “assimilated” in the broadest sense of the term.  I mean that these super beings mated with humans to produce a diluted gene pool: a fact that maddened Hitler enough to exterminate 6 million people of the Jewish faith along with 3 million Christians, mostly Italians and Greeks!

Long before the Great Pyramid was erected, however, and long before the Ayrans and their common language had spread out into Southwestern Europe and South America, the Bible infers that they were present from the beginning of time upon our planet.  They may be traced as far back as our earliest ancestors, as cited in the Book of Genesis.  Referring to this super race of giants as “the Nephilim,” Genesis — with boldfacing by me — states:

1 When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, 2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. 3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years.”   4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

Fast forwarding to the time of Moses’ search for the Promised Land, the Bible’s Book of Numbers tells us:

31 But the men who had gone up with him [Moses] said, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.” 32 And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size.  33We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim).  We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”

Inferences from the Book of Numbers suggest that if the Ayrans were that superior to Moses’ people, they must have conquered them at one point, or at the very least, mated with them to produce a race of half-supermen and half-human.  According to the Bible, then, we are all descended from aliens!

As mankind allegedly progressed into and beyond the New Testament, it altered its notion of God, creating new religions as well as new ways of perceiving the Creator.  Two of these were called Theosophy and Ariosophy: interconnected schools of thought-cum-spirituality that explained the origin and modus operandi of the Ayran race.

Founded by Madam Helena Blavatsky at the end of the 19th century (see http://www.writeonnewjersey.com/2009/10/seances-psychics-and-ghost-hunters-smoke-and-mirrors-or-the-real-deal/), the Theosophical movement held that the human race descended from a series of seven Root Races, varying in skin color but of the same stock.  The Original Root Race hailed from a single progenitor.  Said to have lived 18,000,000 years ago, oddly enough, he was also thought to have lived 850,000 years ago, with the latter timeframe coinciding with the sinking of the great continent of Atlantis.

Madam B. also connected physical racial characteristics with spiritual attributes. She noted that idols and their worship had died with the Fourth Race, but had been restored gradually by survivors of hybrid races of that Fourth Race.   By “hybrid,” I assume she meant descents of those whose parents were one half alien and one-half human – in other words, the Nephilim.  This self-professed medium also further concluded that the Monads — the inferior races of the world — would ultimately be eradicated over time as each new Aryan race was born.  Kind of hard to do, I think, if they were still bedding us poor, inferior humans!

The philosophy of Ariosophy postulates that Teutonic or Nordic people were superior to all races.  This was based, perhaps, upon the Theosophical notion that these peoples were the most recent sub-race of the Aryan root. Guido Von List and Lanz Von Liebenfels took hold of Madam Blavatsky’s hypotheses, churning them up with nationalism and fascism to cough up that most disastrous result, the Nazi ideology.  Under Hitler’s reign of terror, Hienrich Himmler was chosen to eradicate “inferior races” through genetics and eugenics, with the objective to reengineer the German people as the Aryan super-race.

In the late 19th and 20th centuries, the celebrated science fiction author H.G. Wells wrote a best selling book in which he blended the theory of the Aryans with actual events in history.  Published in 1920, “The Outline of History” suggested that Aryans subjugated the entire ancient world nestled in the Mesopotamia, the so-called Cradle of Civilization. This Cradle, now known as the Middle East, housed the Semitic, Aegean, and Egyptian peoples.  Hmmm.  Since the Egyptians still seem to be quite healthy and the Aegeans may be modern-day Greeks, they are also, if these suppositions are correct, the descendants of aliens … the kind from outer space, not south of our border!  Another noted science fiction writer, Poul Anderson (1926- 2001), penned many novels using the term Aryan to describe a race of people who would lead in interstellar travel and colonize habitable planets. 

Considering the number of science fiction short stories, novels, TV series, and blockbuster films centering around superior races that come to earth from far off planets, one must wonder if aliens are a case of “What came first, the chicken or the egg?” or perhaps “Does life imitate art?” Including the ever-enduring Star Trek TV series and Hollywood films, many of these tales revolve around the superior races bringing us advanced technology (think: the Great Pyramid, for example) as well as the caveat to “shape up or ship out” off the planet.

Before the twenty-first century was over, America had landed men on the Moon and built a space station orbiting the earth, along with other satellites and the Hubbell telescope.  President Ronald Reagan stole George Lucas’ title of his hit movies to bring us Star Wars as a way of life, not sci-fi.   Our next, logical step would be to build a spaceship with the capabilities of The Enterprise, whose warp speeds made intergalactic travel possible, including communion with aliens.  

But maybe we don’t need the warp drive.  Maybe we don’t need to go to the aliens.  Maybe they have come to us.  Maybe they are already here.  Maybe the UFO’s sighted and photographed for decades, hovering ominously and mysteriously in our skies are evidence of that.  And, maybe when we gaze into our mirrors, we are seeing a cross between mere humans and other worldly super beings.

It gives one pause for thought.  It gives one the chills.   For if the Mayan Calendar and associated prophesies are correct, are the Ayrans out to accomplish, on a global scale, what Hitler could not?  Will we all become obsolete in favor of a totally new super race?  Will we become the slaves of that super race?  Or, will we become that sci-fi delicacy, Soylent Green — nothing more than items on a menu or food products on a shelf?  And should we mere mortals, whose days seem to be numbered upon this planet, be partying like it’s 1999? 

The Hope Still Lives

Christmas Peace

“In the background of the consciousness of the world, waiting as silence and moonlight wait above the flairs and shouts, the hurdy-gurdys and quarrels of a village fair, is the knowledge that all mankind is one brotherhood, that God is universal and impartial, Father of mankind, and that only in that universal service can mankind find peace, or peace be found for the troubles of the individual soul.”  H.G. Wells, Outline of History (1920)


The Christmas season has always held the promise of “peace on earth, goodwill toward men.”  For Christians and others who immerse themselves in the Season’s Spirit, we become a little friendlier, a little more thankful, and a little more considerate of others at this time of year.  Oft expressed is the hope that we can carry forward and live the “Christmas Spirit” each and every day.


Of course, we cannot.  Unfortunately, the world, on the whole, is not a friendly, grateful, or considerate place.  People, by their very nature, are egocentric and guided by self-interest.   The marketplace of ideas – religious, philosophical, political, cultural, and social – is highly competitive at best and utterly ruthless at worst.  And, the purveyors of ideas often seek victory not merely in that realm, but in the physical world as well.


Organized religions and governments have long understood the importance of ingraining particular concepts and ideas in the minds of their adherents and subjects.  Control over thought spreads to control over discourse and ultimately to control over mind, body, and soul.  With every side convinced of the rectitude of its position, the clash between people of opposing ideas becomes a battle for global domination.  A primary source of discord in our world, its progeny include hatred, terrorism, and war.


This scenario, however, need not be the model for our world.  If we only admit to the premise that God is impartial and that, in human affairs, there are no absolutes, then we can become more accepting of different cultures, philosophies, races, and religions.  With acceptance comes a subtle, and yet very important, shift in perception.  Rather than viewing an individual as a member of a particular group, we can see him clearly for what he truly is, a member of the human race, the brotherhood of mankind.


And, who is it that is greatest among mankind’s brotherhood?  Almost two thousand years ago, Jesus provided the following answer to that question:  “If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all.” (Mark 9:35).  Whether you believe that Jesus is the Son of God, a prophet, or an ordinary person, the model of service to one another that he advocates is our best hope for peace in our world as well as our own personal lives.  And so, this Holiday Season, keep the hope and spirit alive, serve others.
