'Chariots of Fire', ancient presences

Wagons, machinery and winged cars involved in historical chapters of the epic human
Contrary to what many think, or simply unaware, is in our past records abundant contacts with alien origin aircraft and its crew. The fact is that throughout human history, from antiquity to the present day, there were records of interaction with beings far more advanced, which were naively identified as gods and angels, but currently we can recognize fact as aliens.
Many of these records, in the early days, have become true works sacred to their people and, due to the religious content assigned to them, the aliens have gone unnoticed in later years and camouflaged under the image of the gods, placed in context judged as mythological. It is important to understand that the classification of these works as myths attributed was a time when mankind had not yet developed the means to aircraft technology. Thus, descriptions of powerful entities who came to Earth in vehicles that roamed the skies were automatically labeled as myths, but was nothing more than a pre-trial conditioning the primitive belief of the time: that the man would not be able to fly .
As stated William Thomson (Lord Kelvin), president of the Royal Society in 1895, "Machines heavier than air are impossible." Thus, since it is not understood means for aircraft development, works depicting gods in their flying vehicles were naturally labeled religious fantasies, because according to the laws of nature that period it was impossible to fly. We can deduce that this trial was only a reflection of delayed technological development at the time.
How was incabível soar for men, are also declared impossible vehicles winged gods and then the myth was justified. Something similar to what happens today, when it is judged impossible to extraterrestrials are visiting us, making a judgment in accordance with our current development and our 'advanced' knowledge, disregarding the aliens may be thousands of years of evolution to our forward and quite possibly have overcome all difficulties and technological barriers that we face today.
Apart from all these issues, we can now, after the great man's invention of the "mythical" aircraft, look at the ancient texts and noted that flying was not as impossible as you thought. The gods already had knowledge to the development of flying vehicles, we just do not believe that we considered fantasy. But thanks to our technological evolution, we note that the aircraft of the gods are now a reality equivalent. If they locomoviam these ships, we can see that it may not be something as fanciful as well.
There are hundreds of descriptions of gods who came from the skies on their flying vehicles. These ones were not from Earth, but from heaven, so they had originated outside the planet, or extraterrestrial. Our understanding then widens revealingly. "Gods" - flesh and blood - flying vehicles traveling in outer space to our small planet and keep in touch with several people. Is not it obvious? So obvious may end up not being enxergado. The truth may be right there, under our noses, but we are not realizing, due to our own biased judgment, may be denying a true fact.
As we evolve, whether in scientific or technological advances, our worldly view and cultural concepts are altered radically. Since ancient times, when man even dreamed of leaving the ground until the present, we can view our gradual evolution of knowledge acquired over the years, thanks to the relentless pursuit of Homo sapiens for knowledge. After science, a new world opened up before us and countless technological feats were achieved. This relationship between time and science is important to understand the process by which the gods would ETs.
In the same way that when we were kids and believed in Santa Claus, and as we grow we discovered that it was actually our father dressed, so will for humanity when she discovers that the ancient gods are actually aliens. Today we can see this new reality about the gods and discover that they are more real than he ever imagined. Increasing evidence shows that the gods of antiquity, in reality, they are beings from other planets with advanced expertise, technologies and small parts that transmitted his knowledge to our humanity.
In the centuries after Christ, legend and fiction has become synonymous with this unfortunate label has contributed to the mystification of the ancient texts leading them to be treated fanciful. But the label was given at a time when men could not understand its real meaning, a time desiluminado science. The myth is created by lack of means enlightening, for lack of more advanced instruction, for lack of science and technology, finally, the lack of knowledge in general causes man to create their own forms of beliefs.
The human mythology is full of fantastic stories, legends that came to our times through epic storylines or religious texts. Today we can see that the myths and legends are not well and only the fertile imagination of primitive peoples. There is no such ignore ancient scriptures, for they show us that we are definitely not alone in the universe and our planet in the past, was the scene of the presence of these extraordinary beings, seen and called as gods by primitive peoples.
We must be aware that each tribe or society interprets what is strange to the eyes of their culture and, thus, ships and beings with a technology for them magic, would always be seen as deities. The question leads to suppose how a primitive people describe an object without technological and scientific vocabularies without concepts by which we have today. It would be interesting, for example, sees them describe a current car. Far from a modern or even futuristic, certainly would according to its rudimentary concepts and vocabularies.
Ancient manuscripts are full of passages and descriptions whose terms refer to nothing more than the current flying saucers. The Hebrews, when describing objects for which they were totally unknown, used what we now call analogies . But so that we can identify and understand, for example, the terms employed by biblical analogies that refer to flying saucers, we must first understand the manner and the circumstances that led to the prophets of the Bible to designate such expressions. Perhaps the biggest difficulty we encounter when we encounter ancient scriptures, is to complete certain terms expressed in the texts, which, seen from a non literal, now have more sense, revealing to us a new idea, a new interpretation is surprising enough. Imagine how hard it is for those who have never seen a complex object, try to describe it satisfactorily. Generally, it is customary to make analogies with known objects.
For example, the redskins Americans, when they saw a train for the first time, called the "iron horse". But what a train looks like a horse? Probably would have been because you can walk on it, move similar to what you can do with a horse, so well known and used by the Indians. What would be the reaction of an ethnologist 1000 years in the future if faced with the testimony of that people, when reading things like: "And the iron horse across the plain pouring smoke over his head. His voice was like thunder shaking the mountains where lived our people. "
If I had a closed mind, this ethnologist conclude that because there are no iron horses, such a report could only be the brainchild of these people and would end the matter. If it was an ethnologist open-minded, could understand that the report would contain in itself the actual description of something that was foreign to the culture of the people. Perhaps not come to the locomotive, but would have done much more than the first which was limited to a superficial analysis, and somehow prejudiced. We call the part that supports the board's table "table leg" or "table legs" may not have a better word to pass the idea. People often describe new things using terms already known, associating, and that might give an idea of a new object. This is analogy.
Imagine today an Indian tribe completely cut away and no contact with any civilization. If an ethnologist-minded if deparasse with the following account of this tribe: "And the big iron bird tore the sky with his thunderous cry like thunder" would conclude that such a report would be absurd, since there are no giant birds and very less than iron and would label turn as a work mythological somewhat justified by their various superstitions. But an ethnologist open minded certainly understand it is a plane through the eyes of that Indian tribe.
My aim is to show the reader that the ancient scriptures have terms that are true analogies. The difficulty of describing the unknown, primitive people used them, associated ideas to refer to objects that his eyes were too complex for that knowledge in their limited minds could comprehend.
Thus, I ask the reader to look at the stories of the past with an open mind, understanding that many of these stories are constrained by the limited vision of a people who did not have scientific and technological instructions. The ancient texts - like the Bible - are replete with references to alien spacecraft, however, described through analogies. To understand the veracity of such expressions, we need to understand that the main factor that contributed to the designation of these terms was the time.
The difference between the two periods, ie, our present and of the ancients, was the key factor, as it branches into two extremely important points that deserve our attention: difference in scientific and technological, and cultural knowledge gap. The ancients had no knowledge or technologies as we have today. Thus, the ancients did not understand scientifically what they saw in the sky, and interpret such visions according to their rudimentary information understood, even as their religious beliefs.
The great fashion is currently the UFO phenomenon. Therefore, any strange light in the sky that appears is automatically related to a UFO or a flying saucer. But, for example, at the time of the biblical prophets, was the fashion gods and angels, thus it is understandable that any strange light appeared in the sky, it was automatically linked to them. It's all a matter of time and culture, because what the prophets saw in heaven is no different than a few thousand people still see today.
Veneration of the incomprehensible
The aliens were easily deified by ancient civilizations and this is something easy to understand: a bunch of Bedouin barbarians who locomoviam in horse-drawn carts and the only thing I believed birds were able to fly. Would certainly be amazed and awed before ships light descending from heaven with his crew, in the eyes of his subjects, would be divine entities. The arrival of extraterrestrial beings on their ships was interpreted by ancient people as unusual coming of the gods and this is clear in the scriptures. This relation is identical to the arrival of the Spanish in the Americas in 1532, where the Incas believed naively that the Spaniards were gods!
Similarly happened to the Indians of Melanesia in the South Pacific when, in 1942, Americans made an emergency landing on the islands and remained there until they were rescued by the Air Force. The local Indians believed that the American John Frum was a god. These are real examples of a backward and primitive culture often deified beings who in their eyes are exceptional. If the Spaniards and the Americans were easily deified by a primitive culture, then what about beings from other planets?
I would draw the reader's attention to the following fact: if we were spectators of this episode - along with the Indians - and saw the American Frum making an emergency landing, the accident would consider a god? Obviously not! So why the Indians believed that yes? Because there is a stark cultural difference between our and the isolated natives of Melanesia.
We have knowledge of the science, we know that the vehicle Frum is an aircraft developed by our technology and know, by our culture, that it is an American Army. Already the Indians knew nothing of it. Thus, in the eyes of their culture, influenced by their beliefs and devoid of any scientific knowledge, this episode certainly say that this is actually the arrival of the gods and it was exactly what happened in this way.
This is a proof that people without a culture deified beings more advanced scientific and technological objects. Thus, it is understandable that texts that describe the coming of the gods in flying machines at a time without technology such are referring to advanced beings and if they are not from another world, where would be then?
As one of the legends of Tibet that begins with the following words: "Millions of years ago a number of superhuman beings, coming from another world superiorly evolved, came to Earth to accelerate the progress of the planet and humanity future . " Would be fertile imagination? Indeed, who has imagination are those who try to refute this stretch as crisp as it would then be even a great imagination to say that superior beings from another world evolved and came to Earth not deal with aliens.
It is clear that the concept of the existence of ET is not yet accepted outright as it should. Thus, it is understandable that the concept that the gods of antiquity were aliens be a bigger jump for acceptance by all. But what we must not do is to deny fact simply by ego. Denial is a trap of ignorance. Rather than denying we should question. And instead of judging we deem unlikely considerable. In the words of German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 - 1860): "All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed, second it is violently contradicted, third, it is accepted as the race itself."
Descriptions of aliens in some ancient texts
Keeping in mind the concept of analogies previously seen, it is said in the Koran, in sourate 17 entitled "The Night Journey", the prophet Mohammed is transported from Mecca to Jerusalem in one night, the "flying horse". It is important to understand that it is not literally a horse that flies, but rather an analogy of a flying machine. In the book Memories of Sovereigns and the Kings, published in the third century, is described as in China in the third millennium before Christ, "the children from heaven" down to Earth in a "star" - analogous to a ship light - shaped the gravy boat (vessel for serving sauces).
In Taoist sacred writings are descriptions amazing means of locomotion used by children from the sky. Each description illustrates these means using the image of an animal, quite possibly because the necessary words to your description does not exist. Thus, using analogies and associations to describe the aircraft.
The very term we use today, flying saucer, is an analogy to describe extraterrestrial spaceships. Called hard because we make an association in relation to its format. Previously, people did the same, only with words or names referring to that time. Just the fact that we read in the ancient texts that the gods locomoviam in flying vehicles gives us the proof of the origin of these extraterrestrial beings, after all, beings coming from the heavens in flying vehicles would be more than what extraterrestrials in spaceships?
In Egypt, Akhenaten - also known as Amenhotep IV - predecessor of Tutankhamen , in his corner made for God Aton , you can read the following description: "... and so it happened that, finding the pharaoh in lion hunting, in full day, your eyes saw a bright disc, light ship, perched on a rock, and the same beat as the heart of Pharaoh, and its brilliance was like gold and purple. Pharaoh stood on his knees before the hard. " In this corner, in the Hymn III, Pharaoh continues the narration saying "... oh, that solar disk with your glare pulsas as a heart and my will seems yours. Oh, hard fire (light ship) to enlighten me and your brilliance and your wisdom is greater than that of the Sun. " In 1500 BC an Egyptian record tells us that wheels or discs of fire are seen hovering over the palace of Pharaoh Thutmose III and Thutmose III. In China, there are records of ships that were named Fei-Chi, which mean machine that flies, and they were used by both beings coming from the heavens as by men.
We also DZYAN Resorts , are a compilation of old age-old legends orientas, preserved by oral tradition until writing emerged. The book was written at least 3,000 years ago, but some scholars believe that some of the events described in it date back to 10,000 years. Anyway, there is a striking passage in this book that chronicles, in great detail, the coming to earth of men from space: "A group of celestial beings came to Earth many thousands of years ago in a metal boat that circled before landing Earth several times. These beings have settled here and were revered by the men among whom they lived. Over time, however, quarrels arose between them, and a certain group broke up, going to settle in another city, taking with them their wives and children. Separation did not bring peace and your wrath has come to the point that one day the ruler of the original city took with him a group of men traveling in a splendid boat and air metal flew into the city from the enemy. Still a great distance threw a dart against her flaming flying with the roar of thunder. When he reached the enemy destroyed the city in a huge fireball that rose to heaven, almost to the stars. "
Still in the text, all who were in the city perished horribly burned. "Those who were out of town, but in its vicinity, also died. Those who looked at the ball of fire were blinded forever. Those who later entered the city on foot became ill and died. Even the dust that covered the city was poisoned, as the river that passed through it. Nobody came to venture there and their debris were eventually destroyed by time and forgotten by men. Seeing what he had done against his own people, the chief retired to his palace, refusing to receive anyone else. Days later met men that still left over, their wives and children, and all the ships embarked air. One by one, away from the Earth, never to return. "
This small text contained in Resorts DZYAN is so clear explanatory. What is difficult to understand how this work can be considered mythological! A legend says that the arrival of beings from space ships flying metal, which destroys a city with powerful weapons and go away on their aircraft, certainly it is the real testimony and confirmation of an extraterrestrial activity on our planet . Aerial vehicles certainly are results of a technology. If ancient peoples for thousands of years, had no means to develop such vehicles, then who owned this technology as seen and as documented by the ancient people?
A noteworthy fact is the description of ships flying metal. Instead of ships ships can say they are related. In English, spaceship, literally translated means space ship. This is because ship comes by ship and has to do with navigation or air marítma. Ship navigation is marítma, while the aircraft is an airship, who navigates the air, according to dictionaries. Thus, metal ships flying is synonymous with ships flying metal. A small change that makes a huge difference in the understanding of this term.
In Indian texts can, impressively, read the following reports:
"He, the beloved of Indra, entered the divine palace and saw thousands of flying vehicles for the gods, a set aside, others in motion." (Vana-Parna 43, 7-12)
"The groups marut arrived on aircraft divine, and Matali, after talking this way, took me (Arjuna) in his flying chariot and showed me the other aircraft." (Vana-Parna 168, 10-11)
"And the gods in cars transported in clouds came to see the beautiful spectacle ... Stunning celestial cars in large numbers crossed the cloudless sky ..." (Mahabharata I, 4)
"Bright immortal dresses sunlight crossed the liquid sky and dazzling their cars running on clouds rested on tall towers. Offerings ... contented in the High Bright ". (Mahabharata III, 2)
Aliens in the Bible
Similarly to the sacred texts of many cultures around the world, the Bible also contains reports and descriptions of aircraft that were so used by the gods. Flying vehicles described in Indian texts and others, were also seen and described in the biblical texts using analogies, but inspired in a context more religious than others, other people.
In the Bible, many of the sightings of flying machines were fully understood as divine visions, manifestations of angels, saints, or even God himself. Perhaps this has been the most difficult to recognize fully the biblical texts as descriptions of extraterrestrial phenomena, because the flying vehicles were described by the biblical prophets disguised within a religious perspective, without any concept or scientific and technological knowledge.
It is precisely at this point where religion is mixed with extraterrestrial phenomena, nowadays alien activities are so embedded in a religious context it is difficult to identify where one ends and the other begins. Many consider the Bible a holy book, a book of God, without knowing a little more about the origin of this work that God has nothing much less sacred.
The Bible is just a historical record tells us about extraterrestrial activity - Anunnaki or Nephilim , among other names - in the Middle East, as well as we can perceive their activities in Indian texts, Chinese, Sumerians and others around the planet. As men of that time could not conceive of flying machines as we can today, emerged in the Bible expressions such fiery chariot, chariot of fire, fire wheel, pillar of fire, cloud of God etc., which were terms used by the prophets to describe the alien ships.
As an example, the expression of fire carriage. Why carriage? Maybe because the only transportation they had as a reference was the horse-drawn carriage, then the most appropriate way to describe what he found the means of transport unknown, was making a reference to a means of transport that he knew, in the case carriage. Now why chariot of fire?
Considering that the only lighting system at that time was the fire, how else would he describe a light vehicle unless chariot of fire? It is also important to note that the lights of many flying saucers have a characteristic color that is reddish orange. This would also help to have an idea of fire.
In the Bible there are many descriptions of clouds and mysterious that were called by the Jews "the Glory of YHWH ". This cloud-related image is contained in almost all the Bible. It is curious to note that as many of the appearances of the Lord [Yahweh (Yahweh or Jahweh). Some scholars agree that the pronunciation Jehovah (Yehovah or Jehovah) is correct, the latter being the most popular pronunciation of God's name in several languages] are always described by the prophets in the midst of clouds, often luminous. I believe it is worthy of suspicion, for a cloud having willingly and acting would be somewhat doubtful. This cloud interpreted by the prophets as the glory of Yahweh or any other term referring to something divine, was actually a ruse created by aliens or the result of the ship's propellers.
In Exodus 14, 19-20, at the time of the crossing of the Red Sea, Pharaoh's army and the Israelites were accompanied by two flying objects, as described in the following passage: "The angel of God who was going ahead of Israeli army withdrew to stay behind. The pillar of cloud also withdrew from before them and stood behind, getting between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel. " This time, the flying objects are represented by analogy "angel of God" could be referring to a ship bright and "pillar of cloud" that could be a ship covered by smoke, probably a result of its thrusters.
In Exodus 40, 34-38, again we have the presence of this flying object, but an analogy here with the Glory of the Lord: "Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the temple. Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting because the cloud had settled on it, and the glory of the LORD filled the temple. At all stages of the journey, the children of Israel they put into motion when the cloud was rising above the sanctuary. But if the cloud did not rise, they also did not set out, as she does not elevate. By day, the cloud of the Lord rested upon the sanctuary, and night, inside there was a fire, which was seen by the whole house of Israel, throughout the time of the trip. "
This passage describes the most likely landing of an aerial vehicle over the tent of meeting of the Hebrews. This cloud filled the role of guide for the Hebrew people to their destination. When she landed, the people rested, and when she rose, the Hebrews followed. A cloud with such capacity would not simply be a cloud. A cloud that seems to respond to commands and moves from a non-random but smart - falls, rises and follows a predetermined course - clearly refers us to an air vehicle being driven by someone. And at night the ship helped illuminated vision of the Hebrews during the trip: "By day, the cloud of the Lord rested upon the sanctuary, and night, inside there was a fire, which was seen by the whole house of Israel, throughout the time of the trip. "
In addition to the result of the thrusters, these clouds or columns of clouds would actually be an analogy associated with the movement characteristics of the object. In Jeremiah 4, 13, describes a flying car saying he rises like clouds. This is perhaps the reason why the prophets column clouds reported a metaphorical description of the flying cars that rose like clouds. And therefore named these vehicles flying clouds.
In Kings 6, 15-17, we see the appearance of several car fire - light ships: "The next day, Elisha got up early and left. And behold, an army surrounded the city with horses and chariots! His servant said, 'Oh, my lord, as we do?' 'Fear not,' replied, 'because they are more numerous than those who are with us are with them.' Elisha prayed, 'Yahweh opens your eyes to see it!' LORD opened the servant's eyes and he saw the mountain covered with horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. "
It is interesting to observe that Elisha was trapped in the city with horses and chariots, unlike the horses and chariots of fire that were next to Elisha. The city was surrounded by cars ordinary horses. However, it was with an army of cavalry. He had only the company of his servant. Undoubtedly these chariots of fire that covered the mountain around him were not cars terrestrial headed by Elisha. Aerial vehicles were bright and they were sent to the aid of Elisha. There is a passage in which one of these cars had previously caught fire - abducted - Elijah mysteriously, as is Kings 2: 11-14: "And while they were walking and talking [Elijah and Elisha], there appeared a chariot of fire with Fire horses, which separated from one another. And Elijah went up to heaven in the whirlwind. " Therefore, these chariots of fire were not of terrestrial origin nor could, were flying vehicles.
In the second book of Maccabees 5, 1-4, see the description of a mysterious and intriguing air war: "At this time, Antiochus prepared his second expedition against Egypt. It just so happened that during almost forty days began to appear in the air, all over town, riders dressed in gold, armed with spears, organized into platoons and wielding swords. There were cavalry brigades in line tight, attacks and counter-attacks from one side and the other, moving shields, spears crowds, launching projectiles, sparkle of golden ornaments and all kinds of breastplates. All they asked for that appearance was a good sign. " Armored knights fighting in the sky?
The second book of Maccabees recounts the events that occurred in Judea between the years 175 and 161 BC So this time there was no type of aerial vehicle ground. That rules out the possibility that it was a struggle between the people, because they were sore afraid not knowing what was going on, as shown in this excerpt: "All they asked for was that the appearance of good omen." So who were these golden knights who fought in the sky?
There are other descriptions of aircraft, as in:
Numbers 12, 4-5: "Suddenly the Lord said to Moses and Aaron and Miriam, 'Come, all three, to the Tent of Meeting." All three were and Yahweh descended in a pillar of cloud and stood at the entrance of the Tent. "
Exodus, l6, 10: "Now when Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the children of Israel, they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud."
Isaiah 66: 15: "Indeed the Lord will come with fire, and his chariots like a whirlwind (...)"
Zechariah 6, 1: "I raised my eyes and saw again: Here are four chariots out from between two mountains, and the mountains were mountains of brass." Obviously it is not that the mountains were literally bronze, but it could very well be an airbase these "flying cars".
Jeremiah 4, 13: "Behold, he stands up like clouds, his chariots are like a whirlwind, his horses are swifter than eagles." It is difficult to understand why the description of a car that "stands as clouds" and are "swifter than eagles" may not be the testimony of a real aerial vehicle.
The Hebrews, so used to seeing horses with cars - for being the means of transport at the time - certainly to refer to the aircraft made an association, an analogy with the vehicle of your time, chariot horses, and in this way they described the ships. They describe these horses and chariots of fire differently from ordinary horse-drawn carts, they rise like clouds, are like a hurricane - perhaps a reference to the noise emitted by thrusters - and are extremely fast, comparing them with an eagle - single speed reference that would. It is clear that in our current culture, we use the term ship since we have airships and space.
So if we sighted a vehicle call extraterrestrial spaceship in reference to our own transport vehicle, we would use an analogy to describe these vehicles using a term known by us. However, the only transport vehicles that had in the past were the cars and horses and it was with reference to them that the prophets described the extraterrestrial spaceships. Therefore, expressions like chariots of fire - flying - and column clouds are analogies to alien spacecraft.
As shown, we have abundant evidence that in our past we were contacted by beings from extraterrestrial origin. Ancient people have taken the steps to make all properly registered. Interestingly such records today are disqualified, ignored and labeled fantasy for many, simply because they make a biased judgment. It is even somewhat understandable denial of the existence of ETs by scientists, even among them there are differences in their theories.
There is no consensus among scholars about the origins of man, about the origin of the universe, about black holes, the origin of life, much less about the existence of extraterrestrials, judged so misplaced. There is sufficient evidence for scientific theories are no longer theories. However, require proof of the existence of colossal alien life - ignoring the thousands of sightings, abductions contacts, photos, videos and documents - based on probabilities disabled, as have minimal chances of life arising on another planet with favorable conditions for work of chance and the inability of aliens are visiting us, downgrading its technologies in comparative value of our present.
In other words, just because we do not have technology interplanetary or interstellar travel, aliens did not have, because it hurts our current laws of physics do not allow travel at speeds approaching the light, and even if possible, would be hundreds, perhaps thousands of years to reach Earth.
If we are to judge with the eyes of our current technological state would certainly be true, however, are ignoring that our life may not have been the first to appear, and certainly a few thousand years of evolution ahead, ET would overcome their limitations, have developed technologies never before thought quite unusual and laws, they most likely will discover a not too distant future. Not long ago it was considered unlikely that man could travel to another planet, today is a significant event, then what about twenty years from now will be the future of how our development?
Scientists have many misconceptions, for example, the English physicist who in 1900 said that X-rays were a hoax. Dionysius Lardner , in 1823, stated that train travel in "high speed" (60 km / h) were not possible, passengers prevented from breathing morrerriam choking. Or how biologists James McGrath and Davor Solter , in an article in Science magazine in 1984, where he stated that mammalian cloning was biologically impossible [see other historical mistakes in statements and statements of scientists clicking here ].
Who guarantees that scientists once again are not making a mistake - equally absurd - to officially deny the existence of extraterrestrial life? What seems impossible today may tomorrow be a true fact. Just look at the past to the present and collect all the incontrovertible evidence that yes, they exist, visit us and have already visited us, as the eyes of the ancient gods. It is wrong that famous phrase of the show X-Files where he says that the truth is out there. On the contrary, the truth is right here, and in the past it is the key to understanding the present and future.

There are many groups of messages waiting alleged extraterrestrial beings (and the name of Ashtar Sheran has turned "excess space"), but they do not pay attention in life that passes. It is the people who "travels in mayonnaise psychic", always looking for an escape from reality and using his supposed motivation for UFO misticóides or apocalyptic daydreams.
Some groups expect some asteroid hickey to separate the wheat from the chaff (and they always think the wheat, and the rest of humanity is the chaff), while others expect that aliens fall for here just to save his clique the end of the world (or is, terrified of dying and think of something chosen) and others cite the biblical apocalypse or some other calendar catastrophic to justify their dire prophecies, forgetting the here and now of life - and what timing, this or that people, can turn someone immature wise? Or even regular absolutely the fate of mankind since time is relative?
That is, these individuals and groups - who always expect salvation to come from outside and never the evolution of your consciousness from within, by the effort and expansion of lucidity and common sense - are talking about disasters and asteroids hickeys, but do not pay attention in emotional asteroids that are already causing the destruction of his intelligence, the universe inside themselves, they never look.
Yes, there are several asteroids traveling inside them: your thoughts are negative, her musings chosen ego to think of the new era and their fearful emotions. The greatest catastrophe is already within themselves: do not know the star of your own inner universe. So look out, trying to fill the void of consciousness within.
"Implosion" of themselves
If there is something serious in the world, so what? Nobody dies right! So why many people who are active in these studies are talking about prophecies and not mortal life and immortality?
The conclusion is obvious: these people are not sure of his own immortality. For if they had, they would give a banana to it all!
And another thing: heaven and hell are states of consciousness inside. Are portable: each carries her inside. So to what paradise would be snatched up by someone external ETs? And those who are afraid of this or that are not already in hell of their doubts and sorrows?
Some say that the Earth will leave orbit, but they themselves are already out of orbit ... lost within themselves, full of asteroids, prophecies and fears.
Other tremble in fear of spirits, which are disembodied from here, our people, we just live in other planes of manifestation. So I ask:
- Nor would fear ETs who are outsiders?
And I ask again, using the insight to this:
- That calendar may have on my conscience?
- If I'm not happy inside, that being outside can make me happy?
- Be the ET (Ashtar Sheran, or otherwise), the angel, the spiritual guide, master this, the avatar of the new era, Buddha or Jesus, who can live with me? Who can go through experiences that need to mature? Who can walk or move in my place? They can even help by illuminating our journey, but I never walk by us, or withdraw the evidence from the path because they are testing our temper and quality of being.
- If a portal of light to open, but consciousness does not open, for tuning purposes, that it will advance?
- If the person is afraid, then there is already an open portal within itself: it is the gateway of fear. So why did not she closes this portal inside, rather than wait for some higher power to open a portal light out? And that line would be between your portal and portal fearful sky up there?
- There is much talk around in planetary transition and opening portals of heaven. But I wonder: is transformation transition. The human being is subject to many experiences and paradigms breaks all the time. Soon, every experience, when accompanied by break old paradigms and stagnant, is no longer a transition? And you need to hatch it, not just his intelligence and sensitivity?
We all are in constant transition. Each day is a new day, full of opportunities for growth, right here in good old Earth. Each day is a new beginning. Each heart is a portal of Divine, because the whole is in everything!
Condensed matter is energy and energy is matter in radiant state. Soon, everything is energy in varying degrees of density. Everything is energy. Or, as the ancient hermetic started teaching: "Everything is light!"
Evolution in involution
So glad someone already has a portal opened in yourself is the portal of joy. And be sure of his own immortality (and everyone, too), so only increases the reason for this joy. And carrying something within the heart itself, as might be afraid of the future, whatever it is? How could I talk about the end of something, knowing that nothing has purpose, nothing dies?
The future is open, always relative and depends on what we do in the present, because there is no effect without a cause. The past is absolute, it was not changed. But tomorrow is being built right now, in every thought they engender, in every action we take. Therefore, the present moment is called the present. Yes, this is the same as it is in him that we can correct errors (with the lessons learned from the past, never with self-blame, the person holding the past, never afraid to be happy) and arquitetarmos a better future for insight and better feelings.
With or without asteroid, with or without portal with Ashtar Sheran, Buddha, or Jesus, or without them, we all need to learn a lot, regardless of any cause outside of ourselves. This is basic! It's obvious! We need to grow! Let's move!
If the ET, the master or guru someone said this or that, does not matter! With them or without them, we need to grow too. And we have the "All" within our hearts.
There is no race or human being chosen by the heavenly powers: all are brothers, all are energy, we are all light!
Land is only the physical body that is born, grows and dies on Earth. The spirit belongs to the stars, where, perhaps, come ETs also our brethren, they are expressions of the same whole that is all.
If asteroid comes without, matters little. I'm good inside for any situation. If the world will end some day, I do not know! Just know that I do not end up, not today or tomorrow. I am eternal by nature in mind. I know that, and I can not prove to others, but I'm quiet! The certainty that about me already enough for me not to be afraid to be happy here and now, and tomorrow too, with dense body or subtle, or somewhere on Earth ... always good about myself, always lucid in the evolutionary path, always with heart and mind open to all that is positive and focused on the common good of humanity as a whole.
What a joy! I'm not a guru nor disciple of anything. I'm not chosen any power, because carry a lot of flaws and still go far wrong there. Yet even then, I'm happy with what little insight I have already shown me life, this and other plans. Now I just love that I carry in my heart.
This same love that moves the aliens, angels, masters, avatars and all the people, even if they do not realize it consciously. This same love that inspires to live, love, learn, smile and then ...
Peace and Light to all, without distinction of race or creed, terrestrial and extraterrestrial, embodied and disembodied, because the whole is in everything and everyone. Be happy, even if others do not understand why. We are light! On Earth, or anywhere else in the place where life does not do it for less: we are immortal consciousness. And just knowing it to be happy.
I think this is what one would say to men evolved consciousness of the earth, be it called Ashtar Sheran, brother of space or commander dunno what ...
I conclude these reflections, quoting a wonderful teaching of hermetic wisdom, which has been the basis for many things that I think and write:
"The ineffable is invisible to the eyes of the flesh, but is visible to the intelligence and heart." - Hermes Trismegistro, In "Corpus Hermeticus" - Ancient Egypt.
The seven stages for contact with other civilizations
Modus operandi of extraterrestrial beings can be better understood from these 'little rules' contact made by the human, in an era when the cover-up strategy and ridicule has not completely mastered it.
For over 50 years, a primer on manners and ethical space was placed on the table of the scientific elite of the area.
Also in 1960, in a conference room at the Pentagon, was released a statement concerning special programs for American space travel. Surprise and curiosity took over many gifts because, in those days, there was not a real space program - the North American Space Agency (NASA) had been inaugurated in 1958 .
Was given, then a conference with instructions given by two naval officers and an army where there was exposure of a restricted on the conduct to be followed if encontrássemos another planet populated by rational beings during cosmic journey that was human about to begin through the space programs.
In no time the session has been no reference to what they called flying saucers or UFO phenomenon, but it seemed that it was precisely in this respect that the conferees had sought to speak, as if trying to prepare for an exhibition future issue of UFOs. Consider the object program with its steps:
Phase 1 - Preliminary study would be dedicated to this program, being carried out before knowing if the planet in question was or was not inhabited and consist of a patient and prudent observation made at a distance that could be considered outside any risk. If the planet possessed satellites, would conscientiously examined in order to study the possibility of a possible installation of bases that allowed telescopic study it and discover the existence of any form of organized life.
Phase 2 - would consist in principle a thorough observation of the planet a reduced distance, using probe-type instruments. We would do photographs, recolheríamos atmospheric samples and would determine the nature and importance of the centers of civilization, if encountered.
Phase 3 - If, with the results revealed by the survey instruments used in the previous phase, seemed justified to carry out further study, this initial type of equipment would be replaced with a higher capacity operation, more accurately and in reports, which More importantly, manned. Thus it would be possible to study - a method in comparison with the characteristics of our own vehicles - action capacity of the vehicles used by the inhabitants of the planet, measuring its speed by setting the type of propulsion and maneuverability and operability granted by these vehicles .
Phase 4 - This phase of the program has surpassed the implic? Certain risk air. In it, the appliances piloted by men approach the planet even more, to try whether the creatures that inhabit it are hostile and, if so, to what degree and what means are available to maintain this hostility. Search would also determine the location of their radars and military centers wingspan.
Phase 5 - should consist of brief incursions into isolated places, with the goal of obtaining specimens of plants, animals and, if possible, even some samples of intelligent beings on the planet.
Phase 6 - In her flights and landings would carry out systematic, always flying very low heights, but looking to maintain equipment and their crews away from destructive weapons on the planet. These maneuvers approach would be performed at those points where it was possible to observe and be observed by the largest number of viewers. If proceed successfully, this phase would serve to demonstrate the natives our complete lack of hostility.
Phase 7 - Named by speakers of "phase full contact", would be the end point of an entire program carefully designed, planned and executed. The contact would effect only if there are already sufficient and reasonable grounds to believe that he could not afford a disaster or irreparable damage to any of the two races. A single reason otherwise would be enough for the direct prohibition of the development phase seven, even when the results from all six steps above would indicate that the latter was physically realizable.
Well more than family and coincident
Oh, but who uses these steps, sometimes all at the same time, there are UFOs and their crews? The lead-in effect simultaneously, and at times appears to be some predominance over the other.
It would have been just another slide from the military or were actually trying to convey information critical to an initial understanding of the phenomenon?
If we look at the 50 and 60, we see that many scholars and scientists of great international prestige, and authorities? M issues physics, astronomy, astronautics, etc., claimed that the topic of UFOs was real and posed a problem of international significance, being even openly cited as extraterrestrial in origin by the Armed Forces of numerous countries.
As an example, even in 1952, years before the launch of Sputnik, the astronomer Clyde Tombaugh (discoverer of the former planet Pluto) was the director of a program whose purpose it was to follow and study some unknown objects that revolved around the Earth.
In fact, it seems that after a certain point, some people decided to deploy the secrecy and cover-up, transforming research and irrefutable evidence - marked by some of the best men of world science and even military - in pranks of unemployed or crazy, without the slightest possibility of credit by putting the UFO in psychoanalysis couch and under psychiatric care, inhibiting quickly, gagging and scaring people open serious discussions on the topic.
These types of attitudes have imposed ignorance and isolation cosmic. Imagine if world governments this time had assumed and maintained publicly extraterrestrial reality. Lacked courage.
How many excellent surveys, how many opportunities for collaboration in joint civil-military to debunking our real values and responsibilities as members of something much bigger than just imaginary borders between countries. We were deprived of all this in the name of a bankrupt ideology, which brought no answers to anyone (even to themselves acobertadores) and today remains hanging on the edge of the cliff, about to collapse at any moment, just over the heads of those who initiated this doldrums sick.
Meanwhile, we wonder when will the long awaited and dreamed final contact with extraterrestrial civilizations, as are the teachings and information exchange. But it seems that something went wrong in Phase 7 [A single reason otherwise would be enough for the direct prohibition of the development phase seven, even when the results of all six steps above would indicate that the latter was materially realizable] and that "something" is us!
And we only have ourselves to improve it ...
The Flying Saucers - There will be War between the Worlds? [Editorial Vecchi, 1979]
We search for alien life, but in our image and likeness ...
The idea of universal Darwinism has nothing to do with the 'evolution' of galaxies or stars. Certainly life on other planets may be very different from what we conceive today.
"Scientists, therefore, are used to dealing with doubt and uncertainty. All scientific knowledge is uncertain. This experience with doubt and uncertainty is important. I believe it is of great value and extends beyond the sciences. I believe that to solve any problem ever solved before, you have to leave the door to the unknown ajar. "- Richard Feynman in The Meaning of It All (1998, 27).
In a recent discussion at the university, one student undergraduate researcher in biology and astrobiology, said:
"Unlike stars, which still are born all the time, all the galaxies are the first and only generation and at the same age. Although bumped, cast, breaking up and morphed into new shapes and colors, no new galaxy was born since the cosmos was a baby. In this sense (...) we can extrapolate the universal Darwinism [and consequently the idea of natural selection] to the formation of stars and galaxies? "
Since the publication of On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection by Charles Darwin in 1859, a number of authors have attempted to implement aspects of the theory of evolution to explain other natural and social phenomena outside the biological spectrum itself. Of stars and galaxies, through economics, sociology, anthropology, and the physics of elementary particles, is very easy to find the terms Darwinism and evolution out of journals and books devoted to biological sciences.
Is this a indisputable evidence of universal Darwinism in evolutionary biological terms discussed by Richard Dawkins in 1983? Considered the issue at a glance, this might even be a clear demonstration of the strength and the high explanatory power of evolutionary theory. However, when we look under the magnifying glass, it is clear abuse inherent in such extrapolations.
The idea of universal Darwinism has nothing to do with the 'evolution' of galaxies or stars. Universality, in this case, does not mean that one can apply Darwinism to understand any process or system that changes with time. He actually is an answer to the conjecture "If life exists elsewhere in the universe, these organisms evolve evolve as living beings on Earth?". To speak of evolution in the biological sense (which is the one discussed by Darwin and Dawkins), it is necessary to consider the existence of reproduction and metabolism.
What Dawkins and other authors argue is that if there is life elsewhere in the universe, these organisms undergo selective pressures, and there should be changes in their genetic constitution (whether DNA, RNA, PNA or any other molecule that carries information from a generation to another). Such variations preexisting are essential for the possibility of differential reproduction, i.e. natural selection.
According to the philosopher Carl Emmeche (cited in Darling, 2001, p. 10):
"It is highly conceivable that all life in the universe evolves by a kind of Darwinian selection of interactors, whose properties are specified in part by a stock of information that can be replicated ... The very notion of natural selection and replication ... seems to be specific to entities biological ... This definition is simple, elegant, general and crystallized our ideas of a general mechanism of creation of living systems in an evolutionary perspective. "
What is the mechanism of information from a star? She has DNA, RNA, PNA ...? Stars only "evolve" in the sense of change, not in the biological sense. Using evolutionary reasoning to anything equivalent in terms of reliability and scientific relevance, applying quantum physics to explain human behavior, as made famous in the movie Who are we [What the bleep do we know], 2004, or in the mountains of esoteric nonsense of recent years that allegedly using concepts of hard science , but, in fact, extrapolate the results of scientific research beyond the context in which they were initially postulated - for a compelling read about abuses of science emphasizing the postmodern philosophy read Impostures Intellectuals by Alan Sokal and Jean Bricmont (2010).
For Dawkins (1983)
"The universal perspective leads me to emphasize the distinction between what can be called 'selection once' [translation free for one-off selection] and 'cumulative selection'. The order in the non-living can result from processes described as a rudimentary type selection. The pebbles seafront are organized by the waves, so that the large pebbles end up providing separate layers of minors. We consider this an example of selecting a stable configuration from a higher initial random disorder.
The same can be said of the orbital patterns 'harmonious' planets around stars, the electrons around the nucleus, the shapes of crystals, bubbles, droplets and even the dimensionality of the universe in which we find ourselves (...) But this is 'selection once'. She does not give rise to continuous evolution because there is no replication or succession of generations. Complex adaptation requires many generations of cumulative selection, with the change of each generation built from what was there before. In the 'selection once, "a steady state is developed and maintained. It does not multiply or generates offspring.
In life, the selection happens in a generation is 'selection once' analogous to the organization of the pebbles on the beach. The peculiar characteristic of life is that successive generations of such selection develop progressively and cumulatively, structures that are complex enough to eventually create a strong illusion of design. Selection once 'is a commonplace of physics, and can not lead to adaptive complexity. Cumulative selection is a registered trademark of biology and is, I believe, the force underlying all adaptive complexity. "
In the same article, Dawkins ponders the limiting factor for life in the universe. In his opinion, "is a way of life presents adaptive complexity, it must have an evolutionary mechanism capable of generating adaptive complexity. Regardless of what these are evolutionary mechanisms, if any generalization can be made about life in the universe, I bet she will always be recognized as Darwinian life. "
Many may disagree with the view of Dawkins. Yes, indeed life on other planets may be very different from what we conceive today. In the words of physicist and astronomer David Darling (2001, p. 12), "life elsewhere can be so strange that, if we base our expectations too rigidly in terrestrial standards, we may have trouble recognizing it." However, he continues (p. 13, italics his), "The approach adopted by the scientific community is simple, direct and practical: search for the kind of life we know, with possible adaptations to different environments."
Ie: if we can identify life on other planets, it must be within the limits which we define as life, right? If yes, we can say that, given the existence of alien life (since we were able to identify an extraterrestrial organism as such), it evolves in the same way that something on Earth. This does not mean, however, that things completely different from what we consider a priori can not exist. But, if they exist, how can we say that they are alive, it do not fit our definition pre-established?
Overall, what we do is to extrapolate our biology to the universe. Even though there are other biologies, however they are under our noses, probably do not have (yet) the competence to identify them. Unless, of course, that we extend our concepts, so that we are able to uncover alternative ways of life (aliens), perhaps even present on our planet, in the "dark biosphere."
The search for an intimate connection between the origin of life on Earth and the cosmos can be the beginning of a "general theory of biology, a structure of concepts that underpin the development of life wherever it exists" (Darling, 2001, p. xiii). This cosmic connection "not only help to explain some of the most acute problems of our biology and the extreme speed with which life has spread here. It also suggests that other forms of life in the universe could share much of the same basic chemical "(Darling, 2001, p. 50).
Life, the universe and everything
Of course we can not be arrogant enough to think we will get to actually answer what are the conditions for life in the universe. Yet know much of our own planet! Astrobiology is about whether we can extrapolate the conditions we recognize as essential to the existence of life for the rest of the universe. We need to accept the limitation that we can only identify what we can identify ... Astrobiology will not be able to tell in a peremptory manner, as it appears life anywhere in the cosmos. Will only create opportunities, methodologies and techniques to learn, out of the earth, there are life forms within the Earth (or the like conceivable by mankind).
Even the attempt to extrapolate our biology for the rest of the universe is extremely valid and interesting. It is a crucial and significant social and philosophical giant. But we have to have the exact dimensions of our ignorance and our condition diminutive forward to the cosmos. This is what Nobel laureate physicist Richard Feynman said. "The imagination of nature is far, far greater than the imagination of man. Everyone who does not have at least a vague idea of this observation can not even imagine how wonderful nature is "(Feynman, 1998, p. 10).
This is not a "utilitarian view" of science, as some may think. I believe in science as a set of tools and worldviews that developed to understand life, the universe and everything . I think, however, that it is the duty of scientists to know its limitations and scope of their work, which is wider, always seeking to extrapolate their perspective circumscribed to advance knowledge. In the words of Feynman (1998, p. 24), "(...) the extrapolations are the only things that have some value [scientific] real."
Assume we'll get all the answers and we already have conditions to get to them seems a great conceit (that was the mistake of Physics of the late nineteenth century, shortly before the appearance of the theory of relativity and quantum physics).
For the paleontologist and evolutionist Stephen Jay Gould (1987, p. 19):
"It is important that we, working scientists, wrestle with these myths of our profession that pose as something superior and apart. (...) The long-term, science can only come from being harmed by their self-proclaimed distinction as a priest able to preserve a sacred rite known as the scientific method. Science is accessible to all sentient beings because it applies universal instruments of the intellect what is your distinctive material. Understand science - nor would it be necessary to repeat the litany - becomes increasingly crucial in a world of biotechnology, computers and bombs. "
Living with uncertainty, never losing the "sense of wonder" to the universe and observe (but not both) the rigor of formal assumptions of science are valid for anyone who wants to understand nature and its idiosyncrasies.
Questions and Inquiries in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI)
Intriguing questions, but necessary
Before starting the article, this author would like to make clear respect and admiration for professionals, researchers, scientists and collaborators, who fight bravely for program continuity Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence [Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, SETI ], among the difficulties that ranging from lack of funds, sponsorship desestimulações up by governments.
Understand their values, recognize the seriousness and responsibility of groups around the globe, its branches, active or not, as the Search for Extraterrestrial Radio Emissions from Nearby Developed Intelligent Populations [Search for Extraterrestrial Radio Emissions from Nearby Developed Populations that Smart, Serendip ] projects the Million-channel Extraterrestreial Assay [Essay Millions of channels Extraterrestrials, META ] and the Billion-channel Extraterrestrial Assay [Assay of Billions of channels Extraterrestrials, BETA ] Argus , SETI at Home [ SETI @ home ] Project Phoenix etc.. Also the importance of thousands of Internet users and researchers autonomous amateur volunteers. I apologize in advance for any questions, inquiries, criticism and, please, do not generalize the words scientists and rulers, to whom the questions are addressed.
The so-called "interference"
We are accustomed to speak in Ufology, occasionally, on the program of Extraterrestrial Life Search or Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, The SETI . We may even be part of it, with our home computers, and the computer involved in a positive detection of extraterrestrial life will have your name listed in the results as a co-discoverer and his owner will be permanently etched in the history of mankind.
But is this contact radio astronomy can no longer have happened, even if unwittingly? And if the answer is yes, in this context there is also some kind of cover-up? Much has been written, the literature is abundant [See Issue Special UFO 37 ] and there are numerous claims and theories, some of which were denied or contradicted by reality itself later. Let's search for facts and clues that lead us to conjecture:
1889 - The brilliant Nicola Tesla caught beeps, according to their interpretation, were issued according to a central theme or subject, deducing that they were signals from human intelligences, but not here on Earth;
1953 - An event that has not yet been fully clarified: 14 to September 17, thousands of British viewers saw on their screens show a sequence that was not on any channel and that disturbed their favorite programming. A storm of protest fell on the BBC, where everyone was equally surprised, since the program had been broadcast with technically complete normality. The powerful signals that went out local emissions showed up with the callsign and the symbol of the issuer American Klee in Houston (Texas).
The thing complicated when it was reported that the transmitting station simply by Klee had ceased to exist, and therefore also issue since 1950. Joint investigations of the BBC and NBC ended the same way. It was impossible that the carrier waves had returned to Earth for only three years (it would take decades). There could be reflected by chance about a celestial object and also it was not a bad joke, as its author, and afford a fine very high, require a degree of scientific knowledge out of existing standards at the time.
Someone or something had caught somewhere in the space our emissions, returning them in order to indicate their presence? This seems to have been the opinion of the Australian mathematician and physicist Ronald N. Bracewell , who after examining in detail the event and comparing it with others of similar consequences, published a series of very interesting technical studies, including one titled figured Reception Communications Proceeding of Collectivities Galactic Higher [ Communications from Superior Galactic Communities , Nature, 1960].
Bracewell was director of scientific research in the field of Radio engineering from the Australian government. McGowan, who was responsible for the technical arsenal of rockets and missiles Redstone was utterly convinced that external intelligence began to show. The British astronomer Fred Hoyle corroborated this view when he wrote that he was "convinced that there is a compilation of information gathered on something I would call 'galactic library'. We also end up contributing our part to that which pleases me to imagine how the galactic culture ";
1960 - Some scholars Soviet (now Russian) and several other countries have captured fragments of radio signals from distant origin, probably Star CTA-102 (a quasar). It was deduced that came from an extraterrestrial civilization, due to the ebbs and flows completely regular, different natural radiation that have cluttered pace. This report from a scientist Nicolai Kardashev , published in 1964, later being regarded as one of the false alarms in the history of SETI. Kardashev is nothing less than the author of the scale of civilizations named after him , 1964;
1964 - The same area showed a high sensitive cosmic and entirely abnormal radiant energy, which has to repeat some 100 days later, leading astronomers Iosif Shklovsky and Scholomitski to share the opinion expressed by the illustrious colleague. At the same time, caught up in Princeton messages coming from Jupiter. Shklovsky was author of the Universe, Life, Intelligence [Universe, Life, Intelligence, Russian Academy of Sciences, 1962], revised and enlarged with the English translation co-authored with Carl Sagan , published in 1966, under the name of Intelligent Life in the Universe [Intelligent Life in the Universe, Holden-Day].
Intriguing questions, but necessary
In the U.S., encouraged to all scientific endeavors directed the search of these types of radio contacts with other parts of the universe. In 1960, Frank Drake questioned the space, in a project called OZMA , driving their emissions to the star Tau Ceti, with the Green Bank radio telescope. Received signals quite interesting and repeated the same transmission in 1964 with a dish 300 meters in diameter, located in Arecibo (Puerto Rico) - beginning of the SETI Project.
However, its leaders preferred to keep the most absolute secrecy about the results obtained from experience. Still in 1964, the same area showed a high sensitive cosmic and entirely abnormal radiant energy, which has to repeat about 100 days later. Subsequently, the most famous case came in 1977, with the Wow signal! .
Citing some events, we check how many questions and uncertainties surround us today, also with radio astronomy. Currently, explain these events as interference and nothing else, discarding the possibility of a re-evaluation of these signs - must be recorded and filed somewhere, as well as recently discovered an exoplanet in the archives of the Hubble telescope . There could be some clever message intertwined, mixed with these "noise pollution"?
Distance and dissemination
Never received this field of SETI, a signal or response demonstrably extraterrestrial intelligences or if occurred, our 'technology' could not translate. It would be like a Brazilian talking by phone with a Chinese. How long would it take to get an understanding acceptable? Even assuming that these beings seem to us, we have seen in several other matters likely behavior would be different and of course, languages or media also. Detecting an alien message is one thing, understanding and responding is another.
We also have the distance factor, where, for example, might receive a message originating from a planet located 70 light-years from Earth and we responded quickly, it would take another 70 years to that civilization receive our reply, totaling approximately 210 years to we complete only one cycle of exchange "hellos".
The first and only SETI transmission was made in 1974 [ Arecibo Message ] toward the cluster of Hercules ( M13 ), about 26 thousand light years away and, according to researchers at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, a response not can be expected in less than 52,000 years!
Thereafter, international protocols [ One accessible by clicking here ] forbade any kind of communication with ETs transmission order, and strict standards that determine how researchers should act upon capture any suspicious sign, where, after a series of analyzes and procedures, disclosure (or not) the world will be under the consensus of scientists and government officials from around the world.
Ie, the final decision is in the hands of those same scientists who admit without the slightest embarrassment the existence of life beyond Earth, but not under any circumstances accept that extraterrestrial entities are already here interacting with the story, running from open debates on Ufology . And also in the grip of the same rulers who deny us information, lie without the slightest sign of modesty, while planes are pursued or are pursuing UFOs, while military and civilians are being abducted, as we say "The truth is out there" . These types of people would easily be able to omit compromising facts.
Honestly, I do not think (hopefully'm wrong) that our long awaited contact with cosmic neighbors happen through astronomy. It seems that our primitive ancestors communicated so much more simple, fast and effective with the gods, where monoliths, caves, tents or strange artifacts served as transmitters and receivers of messages or direct orders from higher beings.
Moreover, it is increasingly clear that "the truth is is here," hosted right here on our planet, behind every denial and lies, but mostly within each of us, because we are the fruit of the universe and our essence contains the answers. We need to try a search for Terrestrial Intelligences well, let's focus on what happens to alien on Earth, perhaps this is the key, because "they" (ETs) seem to be more interested than us.
In recent times , we had some interesting signals obtained, which some sources specialized news lifted possibiliddes real message of positive spatial intelligences. Then silence. Ok, must be analyzed ... The most recent occurred last month .
Respecting all professionals and volunteers involved in the program, but the final decisions (tell the world or not) in the case of a positive signal and will be real in the hands of scientists and military personnel who work for governments (main course and the Americans). Will confess to the population?
Meanwhile, no one expects anything anyway, because they claim that before 50,000 years should not wait for something relevant. Forgive me, but this is a perfect excuse, they have 50,000 years to not confirm absolutely nothing!
Revolutions in sight
In any case, not to say that there is no solution, some strategic and conscious members of the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) and SETI have indicated and studied other techniques such as Messaging to Extraterrestrial Intelligence ( METI ) and new protocols , and defended also suggested by Alexander Zaitsev , an astronomer at the Institute of Radio Engineering and Electronics of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, Russia SETI coordinator and consultant of UFO Magazine [Read the article The Paradox SETI ].
New guidelines for contact in this style were positively exposed from a Royal Society conference in Prague (Czech Republic) on September 30, 2010. Several events on a global level have also accumulated some successes in the expectation that ultimately , there are many people willing to take the reality of the alien presence on Earth.
Things are tapering, just do not see who would not.
Breaks paradigms: Spirits were right?
Secular works informed us that we are not the only, nor the most intelligent.
When, in the nineteenth century, Allan Kardec , the systematization of knowledge spiritualists, categorically asserted the existence of life on other planets, the vast majority of scientists did not give any credit.
After all, so far ( December 2010 ) is thought to be living, would be necessary conditions very similar to Earth. Ie it would be a direct consequence of a " random "happy, thanks to the presence of molecules of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur.
All it took was a living being tiny as a bacterium to shake all this certainty . The body has such arsenic in its composition. Even today, science claimed that the arsenic was incompatible with nutrition life.
Rather than open the concrete perspective of complex organisms on other planets - in theory considered inhospitable - the discovery modifies the concept of what life is. And puts science in a situation that requires humility, because just this exception to prove that life is still, for the human being, a wonderful mystery.
In The Book of Spirits [FEB 1944]:
55. Are inhabited all the globes that move in space? Yeah man and land is far from being, as supposed, the first intelligence, in goodness and perfection. However, there are men who have a very strong spirit and they think belong to this little globe privileged to contain rational beings. Pride and vanity ... God populated the worlds of living beings, those beings competing for the ultimate goal of the providence. Believe that there is only the planet we inhabit out doubt the wisdom of God, which did nothing useless. Okay, these worlds there he has given a destination more serious than we recrearem view. Incidentally, there is nothing, neither in position nor in the volume, or the physical constitution of the earth, which may lead to the assumption that she enjoys the privilege of being inhabited, to the exclusion of many billions of such worlds.
56. It is the same physical constitution of different globes Not in any way resemble.
? 57. Not being one for all the physical constitution of the worlds, then it will have different organizations beings that inhabit them? Undoubtedly, in the same way that your fish are made to live in the water and the birds in the air.
58. The worlds most distant from the Sun will be deprived of light and heat, because of this star is to show only the appearance of a star? Do you think then that there are no other sources of light and heat away from the Sun and on no account you have electricity that in certain worlds, which plays an important and well you ignore than that it must perform on earth? Too, did not say that all beings are made of the same matter that you and other organs conformation similar to that of yours. The conditions of existence of beings that inhabit different worlds will be suitable for the environment in which they must live. If houvéramos never seen fish?, Would not understand there could be beings that live in the water. So with respect to other worlds which undoubtedly contain elements unknown to us. Do not see on earth the long polar nights lit by electricity of auroras? It's impossible to be electricity in some worlds, more abundant than on Earth and play a role in them general, whose effects can not understand? Well it can happen, so we bring these worlds in themselves sources of heat and light necessary for its inhabitants.
