There are many interesting theories and claims out there today about all kinds of unusual situations. Many of them are discussed in books, articles, on TV, in movies and in online Web sites.
Although many of these ideas seem far-fetched, it might be helpful to keep an open mind and be prepared for various possibilities.
In some cases, aspects of stories about interesting situations may intersect and overlap. Common threads can be found.
Some scenarios are more familiar than others and some may appear to be a bit more reasonable or possible than others. Some may be partially true or have some element of truth in them.
These include, but are not limited to:
- UFOs and extraterrestrial visitation, historical and current
- Extrasensory perception (ESP), “remote viewing” or “anomalous cognition” and other discoveries about human consciousness
- Forgotten ancient histories of human civilization and lost human cultures
- Past and future global disasters such as floods, massive shifts of Earth’s crust, meteor and other activity affecting Earth and/or our solar system
- Advanced scientific understanding and technology acquired and/or developed that is not known to the public at this time such as advanced spacecraft, teleportation, time travel and alternative energy sources
In scratching the surface of some of this research and discussion, we can look a bit deeper at general overviews about these and related topics.
UFOs, ET VISITATION
There appear to be many significant indicators that something is going on in this area. The basic information is quite public – that people have seen unusual flying objects, these objects appear to be under intelligent control and have been involved in many situations interacting with humans on the ground.
Are they intelligent life forms from other planets, other dimensions and/or other times? Are they friendly, hostile or neutral observers? Have they established some level of communication and cooperation with Earth humans? And, if so, what is the nature of this communication and cooperation?
Some researchers claim that there are answers available to these and other questions, and that unknowns also remain. However, it may be a complex situation and the general public might need to be educated about it slowly and safely.
ESP AND HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS
Discussions about these topics have been fairly open in many ways. When it was revealed that the U.S. military and intelligence communities were using “remote viewing” for intelligence purposes, some people laughed. But, much research and verification had gone into these activities and they were apparently very valid.
There is now significant evidence that ESP, remote viewing and what is called “anomalous cognition” are real and natural abilities of humans. They are similar to prayer, hunches, instincts and gut feelings. We can get information and understanding from within our own consciousness that is accurate and useful. Animals may also have this natural “sixth sense.”
Explanations for the validity of these phenomena can be looked at from the angles of quantum physics, nature, psychology and spiritual understanding. Maybe we can move through time and space in ways we didn’t realize. Taken as a whole, the research seems to indicate a new way to look at human potential.
LOST HUMAN CIVILIZATIONS
Atlantis, ancient Egypt and many other stories of alternative human history can be found and explored. Do our current history books portray all of human history on Earth accurately? Or, are there missing pieces? Is there a history long before what we currently consider the origins of civilization and advancing technology?
Many people have presented interesting ideas based on reasonable research regarding possibilities of mysteries and secrets about the ancient human history that we do not yet fully understand.
Where did we come from? Did we simply evolve randomly? Were there relatively advanced civilizations in the ancient past that were wiped out by catastrophes? It could be that we humans are not who we think we are and our knowledge of human history on Earth is incomplete.
We know of the history of the “great flood” from Noah’s time. Other cultures have records that indicate a major flood in the same time frame. There are stories of devastating ancient earthquakes and volcano eruptions. And, we accept the theory that a meteor hit wiped out the dinosaurs.
And then there are the theories of massive and sudden shifts of the Earth’s outer crust in a kind of mega-earthquake. Views on this idea include hypotheses that this has happened periodically throughout Earth history. Some have called it a crustal “pole shift” where the outer crust slips or shifts relatively suddenly. The former ice-covered poles are moved to warmer latitudes. Temperate areas are suddenly frozen over as they are shifted to the pole positions.
What might cause this? Some researchers speculate that it is a natural occurrence every so many thousands of years because the Earth gradually tilts on its axis more and more over the decades and centuries. Others say that a “Planet X,” a hidden “dark star” or “brown dwarf” star, is in an unusual orbit that intersects our solar system every 3,500 years or so. When it comes close, it creates significant gravitational and other disastrous influences on our solar system and Earth.
Some recent speculation includes the claim that it is known by some scientists and Earth governmental officials that this object is heading toward Earth in the time frame of 2012 and may create global devastation and disaster. As a result, underground shelters or “arks” are being created around the world to save a small percentage of the human race who can rebuild civilization after the catastrophe.
ADVANCES IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY
As the old saying goes, U.S. advanced military-related technology is always many decades ahead of where the general public thinks it is. This may be an understatement. What if, in our current perspectives, technology and science is actually centuries ahead of where we think it is?
What if teleportation is currently being used? Recent stories of “jump gate” technologies and “jump rooms” refer to methods to “beam me up, Scotty.” These are often referred to as “star gates” or “worm holes.” They might exist naturally in certain places and it might be possible to create technology to accomplish this.
A recent research paper funded by the U.S. Air Force found that teleportation is scientifically viable, based on just our own human understanding of physics, not considering that we might get advanced knowledge and technology from other sources ahead of us in these areas.
Time travel has been a common theme in thought, literature, film and TV. Like the ideas of star gates and teleportation, time travel may be possible. Perhaps it is going on now. Physicists say time and space are not exactly what we usually think they are.
And, are the international space station, space shuttles and known satellites really our most advanced space technologies? Of course, there must be space resources that are classified and unknown to us. How advanced are they? Rumors of a secret U.S. and/or international space fleet are certainly interesting. Is there any truth to them?
And, importantly, are there advanced energy technologies that are available now, yet not widely deployed to benefit all people?
As the human race keeps moving forward, we continue to try to tackle these kinds of questions along with the current challenges of war and peace, hunger, disease, poverty, injustice, suffering, deterioration of our natural resources, climate change and other evolving and emerging threats.
At the heart of many of our efforts are the roots of human thought and belief. We use various approaches and in various combinations. Science or religion. Logic or faith. We often face these kinds of dual ways of looking at things during discussions of current events and personal perception. Sometimes it seems that these split viewpoints, dualities or polarities can prevent us from seeing the whole picture.
Let’s go back to the example of ESP and anomalous cognition. These phenomena, as noted, are the basis of what the U.S. military and intelligence communities referred to as remote viewing during the research and operational implementation of special ESP activities in the 1970s, ‘80s, ‘90s and probably up to the present.
This interesting research was conducted using scientific methods. Yet, there was certainly a spiritual element that could not be ignored. If there is a deep source within us that allows us to obtain information and understanding, is that source not part of some larger intelligence? Do our U.S. intelligence activities sometimes merge with a greater divine intelligence?
Let’s take another example that is an issue of hot debate among certain people in our society: evolution versus creationism. On one side is the idea that all living creatures evolved in ways determined by environmental pressures, random chance and perhaps other factors. The other side says living things have developed through a plan or design by a higher intelligence.
People who might be able to see another angle to this debate might wonder if it is possible that a higher intelligence created evolution.
Yet another thing to think about is somewhat related to both of the previous examples cited: random chance versus events and coincidences with meaning or “synchronicity.” Synchronicity is the idea that some apparent coincidences actually have meaning and connections. What the connections are and what they mean can be unclear. But the idea of synchronicity includes the belief that all events are not random.
Are events and situations that seem to involve synchronicity planned events? Or, are they just connected through some kind of time-space elements we don’t always fully understand?
These same kinds of perspectives can be used when we examine and explore the many theories, accounts and rumors about unconventional discoveries, knowledge and situations.
Looking at these interesting ideas with open minds, strong hearts, feet on the ground and with the knowledge that being prepared and vigilant are always good ideas, we may be better able to face the future and survive and thrive in it.
