The 9/11 Influenza

Before you read my thoughts, I want to make some things clear. First of all, I obviously do not believe that the 9/11 event took place in the manner we are told to believe. I think that there are lots of inconsistencies, and I refuse to have anyone tell me this is how it is, while leaving open holes in between. Secondly, I do still keep those who died in the attack in my heart and give blessing to their families. They have nothing to do with this, and it is always a horrible thing when innocent people die, in any way or form.

So here we go…

This year will be the tenth anniversary of the event known only by the date September 11th.  The name symbolizes a date, and this date has now become fixed to this event, and is no longer a date. When someone says; September 11th, one does not think about a day in the year but rather about the event.

The blaring of this event has been constant every year since its beginning. News agencies, television channels, and radio stations, all cut their normal broadcast every year to pay tribute to this day. To me it seems a bit odd, and quite frankly a bit overdone. This is the only event that receives this much attention, one would expect (if not from here) that we do this for ALL terrible events, like WWI and II, hurricane Katrina, the floods in Pakistan or any devastating world event, but we don’t. This is the only event that continues to haunt us (not by choice) every year on the same day. In all honesty this event did not affect the world, it affected one country, but the events that occurred after is what got the world involved. In any case I ask myself why do we continue to place so much attention on it, and will it ever end.

It seems to me that the only reason that this reminder is given to us over and over again every year about something that happened 10 years ago, is to make sure we the people will continue to approve of the steps being taken to rid the world of such terror. If you keep fear in the eyes of the masses, they will not try to question your actions; they will obey and do whatever is necessary to rid the world of this problem. Those who go to fight for your cause will feel that they are a part of something that will make their country (or world) better and those who would normally reject war would instead glory at the fact that someone is being punished for their act.

The Fear (The Twilight Zone)

It has been recently announced that there is a heightened security threat in the US; someone will try to once again execute a terrorist act on the day of the 10th anniversary. I do not believe this to be true, I believe this is just another way to remind you that you are NOT safe, keep looking over your shoulder, and be suspicious of anything that occurs around you, basically to keep people fearful every day, every minute, and every hour. If I try to imagine that this new threat is in fact valid “but not confirmed”, why did they not make this announcement 10 years ago when they also had reasons to believe through investigations, that the September 11th attack would occur? Why now, but not then?

At this moment, they are all seen as heroes, trying to protect everyone from future attacks, but in fact they failed to stop the previous one. While allowing the first to happen, the events there after will always make it seem as if they are the saviors, the heroes, those who keep looking for these threats and those who will protect you from them. Some would argue, ‘well aren’t they?”. Let’s agree to disagree.

Any person that receives your trust, and vote through methods of fear is not anyone I would call my hero. It is like, keeping a child in the basement for 20 years, and not allowing it to go outside, with claims that the world outside is full of monsters and murderers and if you go outside they will get you. That child would rely on you to protect it, and almost thanking you that you are keeping him inside, not knowing that outside is a wonderful place and they are being lied to. This is exactly the kind of fear enforcement being played every single day. People are scared of each other, scared to fly in airplanes, scared to go to public places, scared of other races, and scared of the unknown. But it creates a perfect situation for politicians to move forward with plans that would in normal circumstances be rejected; for example, the Patriot Act, and broadened powers of the NSA.

In conclusion, it is unnecessary that we must be reminded every year in such a large scale of the 9/11 event. It is a horrible thing yes, many people died, but many people also died in Pakistan’s floods, in the Indian Ocean tsunami, and the Chernobyl nuclear explosion. I am sure one would argue; the difference between these and 9/11 is the fact that people did this to other people, ok you have a point, but what about the Rwanda genocide, Armenian genocide? People did that to other people and my point here being it is always wrong when a person ends the life of another and even worst when it is many people. But we must not dwell on it we must see it as a lesson and try to improve our selves. Instead of instilling fear amongst the people to remind them of something terrible that happened, and it can happen again, why not try to bring some positive thought, thoughts of love and hope that we can be better people as a whole, instead of enforcing fear and prejudice amongst society.

Could the creation story of the Annunaki be in fact true?

To summarise for those who have not looked into the subject: The Annunaki is the name of the beings who came down from the sky and created man. They live on the planet Nibiru which shares an orbit with our sun, this planet has an orbit of 3600 years (earth years, as to them 1 orbit would be 1 year). Many years ago, their planets atmosphere began to weaken, and after trying many things to keep it stable nothing worked. They came to a conclusion that they can use gold in a fine form to float in the atmosphere creating a protective layer. Knowing the gold on their own planet was not sufficient they came to earth to harvest gold, knowing from their own ancient knowledge that earth had an abundance. Upon arrival they made a base, created the 6 days plus one rest day and began to harvest gold. The workers began to complain of the hard labour and the weird feelings they get from earths short orbit. The leaders then devised a plan to genetically manipulate the monkey like creature they found in the forests. The creatures

that were the end result was US!

Now this is the story according to Sumerian belief of how man was created. But it isn’t as far fetched as it might seem. I think it is important to before making judgement, to first put your self in their shoes.

Our planet is dying, we are running out of an important material that without it everyone would perish. We have technology to travel to other planets, but not the technology to inhabit other planets, and from our many years of research of our own neighbour planets we know that there is one that has an abundance of this material that we need. One can see we would jump at this opportunity, we will do whatever we have to do to make sure we can survive. Upon arrival to this planet we build a base and a means of transport for the substance to quickly be shipped back to earth. While working we stumble upon a primitive creature, we think nothing of it and keep working. Soon after our workers begin to complain that it is difficult work, the orbit of the planet is making them sick, the workers begin to protest. At this point it seems we will loose this battle, no one is working, and the shipments of the important substance are not enough. Until one day someone decides to take this primitive creature they found in the wild, genetically manipulate it’s DNA enough so that it can understand and obey, but not rebel. To make it more comfortable to our selves we make it in an image of our selves. It takes a few tries as we have never done this before in this extent, but eventually the perfect slave is created. At home there are many who detest this action, and say we are not to play god. But here is little they can say because finally again the shipments are flowing in, and mankind will survive. Now, this all seems plausible doesn’t it?

In this case we would be the aliens, when we leave this planet after harvesting enough of the material, the creatures we have created would see us as gods, the ones who created us, the ones who taught us what we know. All we can do now is obey what they have told us, and hope for their return.

History we Don’t Know

In a previous post I spoke about how we today seem to misunderstand our ancient knowledge. Here I want to get more into it and also push out some facts that might be interesting.

I am not a historian, archeologist, or anything of this science. It is just my interest and hobby, and like any hobby, we dive into all the books and papers we can collect, and suck in all the facts. Some would think, to what end? Honestly there is no end, i just want to know ALL.

First of all something I’ve realized years ago (and I’m not the only one) is that if you look at most or maybe close to all of our ancient civilizations, they all almost tell the same story. The same story of how they came to be. From the America’s to Africa, to the Middle East, all these stories have the same base, with different flavors. I guess one would think in the time of oral tradition, the same story was given to all at one point. But because of cultural influences, and environment, small parts of the story were edited to better apply to those specific people. The basic story all boils down too, someone came down from the sky and made humans, these same people then taught us the things we know today, left us guidelines on how to live, and returned to the sky. All also speak of a day that they would return for some sort of judgment. Most cultures in the America’s describe these people as being white skin color, which brought much confusion when the Spanish Christians first arrived to South America. The natives greeted them with open arms, offering them gifts, and showing them all that they have achieved, not knowing that these people were not the Gods, but in fact their downfall.

This is not the only similarity in these global ancient cultures; another similarity is the building styles of the time. We all know about the ancient pyramids of Giza, but these are not the only ones. There are ancient pyramids all over the world, in almost every continent. Here are a few: America’s, Africa, China, and even some in Europe.

To give an example:

–          Egypt : Pyramids of Giza

–          Mexico : Chichen Itza

–          Sudan : Nubian Pyramids (Meroe)

–          China : The White Pyramid, Qin Ling Shan mountains

–          North America : Platform Mounds

–          Europe : Bosnian Pyramids

Now one might think, ok an ancient culture centering in possibly Africa, might be able to spread its idea’s through Europe, the Middle East, and as far as Asia. But the problem is; how did they cross the Atlantic Ocean? Today we understand that cultures such as ancient Egypt did not possess any sort of sea vessels that would be able to travel that distance, and the same goes for Mesoamerican cultures. So my conclusions to this are, there was either some sort of bridge for them to cross over (and I don’t mean the Bering Strait), or there were civilizations before the ones we know today that settled in those locations, and were able to cross these vast distances for work or pleasure, or a combination of both.

The meaning of a bridge in my mind represents more the idea that there was a land mass between Africa and the America’s creating a bridge from which to cross and trade. In today’s ancient cultures there is not much evidence of trade between the Atlantic, but this might have taken place before the cultures we know today. Now many people know this theory as the Atlantis theory, meaning that the landmass that made the connection was the Atlantis culture itself. If this is true this would also explain the reason why all these cultures so far apart share such similarities. This is because Atlantis (from the stories) would have been the main “place to be” in those times. The main question here is, did it actually exist, and if so where did it go?

Another possiblilty:

There is much evidence that suggests that before the end of the last ice age, there were advanced and booming great civilizations. We find this evidence in stories as well as archeological evidence. As mentioned before, we have many under water pyramids and even more, entire cities at depths that could have only been above water in the last ice age when sea levels were lower. Now again I will give some dates to make this clearer, the last ice age is estimated to be 110,000 to 10,000 years ago. Now we today have modern humans leaving Africa at some 50,000 to 100,000 years ago, slowly moving into Europe and Asia as hunter gatherers. Now if we dismiss the scientific fact of age of man, and age of coming out of Africa, (as we cannot definitely say this is accurate. Every year we find new bones, and we have to change the story a bit, so there is uncertainty). Then we can say that maybe man is in fact older than we thought, and not only older as in, we were bush people in those times, but we were actually sophisticated, intelligent, people creating societies on a grand scale.

Now, how can one tie this in with everything else? (This is an idea shared by many people)  in the way past before the end of the last ice age there was a great civilization on earth, much like we have today, a civilization that was tied together. The global society collapsed for whatever reason be it war, disease, global warming, or something from outside earth.

Ice age Earth at glacial maximum. Based on:

Image via Wikipedia

(Now this is my idea) One interesting idea that comes to my mind is the natural glacial periods. Ok let me better explain myself: The last glacial period was 110,000 to 10,000 years ago. The Glacial Maximum period, meaning the time that it was the coldest, and the ice sheets covered most of North America, Europe, and Asia was 26,000 to 19,000 years ago. So in my math, this civilization would form….let’s guess here and say 20,000 years ago or older. What I’m trying to say here is that the civilizations must have been booming in a time before this Glacial Maximum period. If we say 19,000 years ago was the worst years, then we say these civilizations are 19,000 years and older. Ok, now to the next step. Because of this glacial maximum period many things happened on earth, the sea levels dropped, there was drought, and once lush places turned to desert. This can be a huge reason why this global civilization could have fallen. All civilizations would have existed with some sort of structure, if that structure were to collapse, people were going hungry, animals were dying, people would either begin to move to new locations, or revolt against the let’s say governments (who knows what kind of infrastructure they had). Most if not all people would have left the cities trying to fend for themselves, find food, and shelter from this ever worsening weather and environment. The only shelters that would seem best fitting would be caves:  a sort of survival mode would set in. They would have to hunt for food, and invent tools that they once had, but now must create once more with simple stones. The animal skins they would have to use for clothing as it is so cold, and in their boring days and nights sheltering from storms, they would paint on the cave walls. Sound familiar? No? I’m talking about the cave people. If looking at ourselves today and how spoiled we have become, we also would have difficulty surviving in the wild. Not everyone knows how to build shelters from the cold using what nature provides, not all of us would know how to build sophisticated tools. Because we at this point have everything made for us, and we don’t have to learn the crafts personally. Finally the world began to warm once more around 13,000 to 10,000 years ago. The ice sheets that covered the northern hemisphere began to recede, giving way to a new age.

Now this is where what we know today comes in: when the ice began to melt people slowly began to come out of their caves. They began to venture out in the world once again and slowly made little towns, which led to entire cities. Some of these people knew that it was important to carry on all that their ancestors knew in the past (before the glacial maximum). During the glacial maximum this ancient knowledge would be passed down orally through the families. Later, when they could once more create a structured society they began to document the knowledge of their past as best they could. And in this time is when we get the ancient Egyptian civilization, the Sumerians, the Norte Chico, all these civilizations that our science today calls ancient are just the remnants of an even more ancient civilization that was devastated. The best part is, is that we have proof of this, as most or all of these civilizations speak of this information being from a time long before their own. Meaning, the information that they documented, was information from their ancestors.

Now, one would think: if little ‘ol me can figure this out, why isn’t it in any of our history books. This is a good question, and it has room for many answers seeing as there are none. My best guess is that if all these things were to be branded as true fact, then the sections of this history of sky people visitations, and human creation by these sky people would also have to be branded as true fact. And seeing how through the years we have been made to think that these ancient myths are folklore and mother goose stories, we would understand that the human race is so much more than a natural accident of Mother Nature, or a creation of God. Society would flip over, and many people would be totally confused. We would not only realize that we are the children of some other race, but also realize that we aren’t alone. People will begin to either run around in fear like headless chickens, or begin to call these ancient creators and tell them to come back. We will begin to disobey our leaders, because at this point we will realize we are as small as them, and in fact our true leaders are in the sky somewhere. Society would fall apart, so this to me is the best reason I can think of to why this kind of information is being withheld.

Now believe me, I am not implying what I say is the truth, it is my best conclusion after many years of research (many years in my short 25 year life).

Thank you for reading, hope you got this far. Please leave a comment if you have a better idea, or will like to challenge mine. I am always open for discussion, we only learn more if we learn together.

Ancient Knowledge Misunderstood

In every history book you can find amazing tales of people in the past, their mythical gods, and strange ceremonies. The image that we today have of these ancient civilizations to me is incorrect.

In my opinion it is important that we drop what we know, or think we know and really look at this once more. We seem to have this picture that ancient man was simple, un-educated, and just bushy hunter gatherers who one day decided to build a pyramid.

Why would ancient people who in my opinion seem to be wiser than we are today make up stories to just be stories? I am sure they also enjoyed the luxuries of theater and music, but as we do now, i think they would understand the difference.

We must see them as we see ourselves today, humans were always humans. Our brains today are the same as they were 8000 years ago. The only difference is, they understood how to live at one with the earth. They knew that the earth had everything they needed to survive. They also understood the natural balances around us, something that we today have lost. In my opinion this is one of the key points to label a civilization as intelligent. One who knows how to live with the planet it is on. Today we walk on this world without the slightest idea of its natural cycles, and harmonies. Some might debate that indeed we at this point are more advanced; “look at our technology” they will say. But then again for what purpose do we need all these things? It adds nothing to life; it’s all just a distraction (something that might also decide a civilizations status).

I think the most important question is: what happened to us? In the age of Sumer, Ancient Egypt, etc we were truly knowledgeable, we had great understanding of the skies, and earth, and made great achievements in technology. These understandings would carry on slightly through the Ancient Greek times. But what is strange is: how or why did we lose this information and understanding? If we look at it, through the years the amount of information being carried on seemed to be diminishing slowly until the big dip of the dark ages. We were living in huts with no sewage, it was a luxury to be able to read and write, or take a bath. We thought the world was flat while 5000 years before we knew otherwise, and even more amazing we knew the movements of the heavens and could track time through natural orders. How can one go from understanding time through the stars, knowing the world is round, and there are other stars and worlds out there, to thinking the world is flat and urinating in potty’s? It makes absolutely no sense; did we get hit by a stupid stick? THIS to me is the most important question. Not if “was ancient man as smart as some claim”, but what the hell happened to what we knew?

Ok, there are many things I can factor in to this that might be logical, Christianity being one. This new idea spread across Europe after the persecutions of Christians ended under the reign of Emperor Constantine (313AD). In the times following this, the Roman Empire fell in the 5th century, which led to the fall of the western Roman empire, which in turn led to the early middle ages (dark ages) 500-1000AD. This is only one idea but the basic idea here is that, things just seemed to go downhill from this point. Could it be something that happens all the time? Meaning, we once had much knowledge, and we lose it all and start over?

The Lost Kingdom of Mu, Yonaguni, Japan.

I truly believe that we go back longer than we think we do. The oldest known written records we have found at this point are cuneiform from Mesopotamia (30th century BC). The oldest known ruin that we know of is Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, which (at this point) dates to 11,000 years ago (9th millennium BC). But this is as far any history book will go, there are some things that are being left out, and to me they are the most important, and least studied. Ancient sites like the Yonaguni monument in Japan, which is a temple that is obviously man made. The debate is if it was entirely man made, or was it a natural structure that was modified by humans, which in any case would put it as, a monument that was touched by man. A few more: Bay of Cambay off the shores of India. Signs of an ancient city, there is a disputed piece of wood that was found and dated some ~8000BC, the dispute is that you cannot date the city by a piece of wood, but others say that because 20,000 years ago the Sea of Arabia was 100 meters lower than today, that any wood found would be remnants of ancient forests at that time. In any case there are tons of these underwater sites, the point is that our dating put modern man to some 10,000bc at the most, meanin

g that when man began to build vast cities, and learn agriculture after moving out of caves. But my point is, if these cities are under the water, did they build them under water? Or, where they built at a time when the sea levels were lower. I think the 2nd point makes the most sense. This would date all these sites around the time of the last ice age, which is estimated to be around 110,000 to 10,000 years ago. After this the ice melted and gave us the coast lines we have today. This can be quite damaging since our todays estimates place us “coming out of Africa” 70,000 to 50,000 years ago. (I will go through my thoughts on human evolution in another blog, also very interesting).

To conclude this long and drawn out story, and I hope you’ve all made it to this point. The history that we have been taught to learn might be a bit tainted. Many stones have been left unturned, and many questions unanswered. There is much information that we have sitting in our hands but we don’t seem to want to touch it. It is important to know who we are, to understand where we are going.
