The rising popularity of the History Channel series Ancient Aliens has sparked some intriguing theories about what, or who may have once visited our forefathers, imparting knowledge and technical advances that propelled humanity forward by leaps and bounds.
Originally, the notion of ancient aliens, also known as ancient astronauts, suggested extraterrestrial intervention thousands of years ago, as well as maybe some genetic interference.
According to the ancient astronaut idea, our forefathers witnessed massive advances in scientific, astronomical, technical, and medical knowledge that could not have occurred on their own. We had to have received some assistance from above, from beings considerably more brilliant and advanced than ourselves.
How else could humans have created those incredible Egyptian pyramids and gigantic stone figures on Easter Island, or the painstakingly detailed blocks that makeup Puma Punku in Bolivia…? What about the numerous glyphs, cave and rock paintings, sculptures, sketches, and statuettes from the ancient past that appear to depict “helmeted” beings that do not appear to be human, or weird objects flying by in the sky?
Are all of these “archeo-enigmas” evidence that our forefathers interacted with celestial beings and left hints in their art, architecture, mythologies, and religious texts?
While some claim that there is no evidence that we humans required a little aid from above to accomplish those massive leaps ahead in our development, others argue that the archaeological evidence is plain… We used to hang out with aliens, potentially mating with them, or having their DNA spliced with ours without our knowledge or consent.
The hypothesis also suggests that these aliens were from sophisticated civilizations who came to Earth to share all they learned about the enormous cosmos and all its potential.
The principles of physics may enable travel between realms both within and beyond of our known universe, according to speculation.
However, what about time travel? Must we believe that the aliens that interfered were aliens at all if we embrace the ancient astronaut idea, and there is overwhelming “circumstantial evidence” to support it? Could they have been… dare we say… Americans?
Future humans returning to teach, warn, and lead the humanity of the past? Let me bring up an intriguing topic in case you believe that assertion is outrageously unjustified.
A mystery object fell on a ranch in the desert outside Roswell, New Mexico, in the summer of 1947, igniting a firestorm of ongoing discussion. The first reports suggested it was a flying saucer, but these were quickly debunked in favour of a weather balloon tale provided by the authorities… Cover-ups have been around for a long time.
Roswell is now the stuff of legends, with movies, TV series, and dozens of books devoted to the mystery surrounding what happened on that historic day in history.
Many people believe that extraterrestrial remains were discovered at the crash site and hurried away to a top-secret hangar at Wright-Patterson AFB. Was the craft afterward reverse-engineered in Nevada’s notorious Area 51? Were the accident victims subjected to an extraterrestrial autopsy, as suggested by a TV show years ago?
We still don’t know what happened in Roswell, but there is a link between an ancient extraterrestrial and an astronaut that adds to the mystery. The aliens might have been human people from the future… us… coming back to, well, communicate with… us, according to a prominent US Navy Commander called George W. Hoover.
During his time as a Naval Intelligence Officer, Hoover allegedly received top-secret access to observe the Roswell debris and bodies in the 1950s…
Before his death, he gradually revealed his convictions to a small group of individuals.
His own son, George Hoover, Jr., and subsequent UFOlogist and researcher William J. Birnes, were both made aware of what the older Hoover knew before his death.
During interviews, Hoover maintained that the aliens were not extraterrestrial, but extratemporal — that is, time travellers. Furthermore, he claimed they were not aliens at all, but rather future humans with tremendous skills to manipulate reality and travel across time using the power of awareness.
Hoover’s tale echoes the claims of certain UFOlogists and many UFO abductees that aliens may have been and still may be, future humans who have developed the technology to transcend the restrictions of light speed and time travel paradoxes that prevent modern people from crossing time’s bounds.
Their humanoid form might indicate a relationship between how we seem now and how we might look thousands of years from now.
It’s possible that ancient aliens are actually future humans. It’s a bizarre concept, yet it’s not completely beyond the realm of possibility.
