6.19 – ALIEN ENCOUNTERS (8.15.14)

“THE FATES” [20e]

Olympia, Greece. This valley on the Peloponnesus Peninsula, once filled with temples, altars and statues, is where the ancient Greeks came to pay tribute to their gods. Near the temple to Zeus, the king of the gods, was a sanctuary dedicated to the Moirai, the only beings that Zeus was said to fear. These mythical figures were believed to control destiny. English speakers call them “The Fates.”

“In ancient times, fate and human destiny were thought to be in the hands of the gods. There was much less this idea that we’re in charge of our own destiny and that we make our own lives through choices and decisions and action. The idea was that human destiny was in someone else’s hands. It was in the hands of the Fates. There were three supernatural creatures. Clotho, who spun the thread of life; Lachesis, who wove it; and Atropos, who cut the thread at the moment of death. In the ancient times, gods and goddesses were thought to be able to influence people’s destiny, and that they were constantly interfering in human affairs. They were constantly messing with humans. They could make humans do all kinds of things. They could disguise themselves. They could trick humans. They could persuade humans. And yet, that final moment of destiny was still in the hands of the Fates.”

– Sabina Magliocco, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Anthropology & Folklore, CSU Northridge)

Other ancient cultures had similar beliefs. The Egyptians personified fate as the god Shai who was said to control the actions of humans, while the Vedic texts of ancient India talked about a universal order called Rta.

“There was a similar legend in ancient Mesopotamia. And it was of the Mamitu, who was a goat-headed goddess who lived with the Anunnaki in the realms of the sky. The Mamitu was also in charge of our fate. So, you have to wonder was the Mamitu and these other gods of fate some kind of extraterrestrials that were controlling our lives?”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Is it possible, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, that the gods who were said to control our fate were actually members of an advanced alien civilization? And if so, how were they able to interfere in people’s lives undetected? Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest that extraterrestrials not only communicate with us through visions and physical encounters, but even through our dreams.

New York City. Spring, 1940. At the Bell Laboratory complex in Manhattan, a young engineer named David Parkinson is using a device called a potentiometer to track the varying electrical voltages that course through a telephone when people use it. Parkinson’s work with potentiometers seems unimportant compared to the big news of the day.

The Nazis have conquered most of Europe, forcing the Allies to flee the continent in a ragtag flotilla of civilian boats after the Battle of Dunkirk.

“The Nazis were almost undefeatable at this time in the war, and there was a tremendous despair and fear amongst the Allied forces. And the story goes that David Parkinson had a dream one night, and in the dream he was standing beside a certain type of gun. And that gun was hitting every Nazi plane with absolute accuracy.”

Parkinson’s dream gave him a brilliant idea. He could use the same technology that tracked electrical charges flowing through a telephone to track enemy airplanes flying through the sky.

“And in the dream, he was able to see the technology that was created to make this gun so accurate. And it is said that when he awoke, he went back to the labs and he ultimately created the technology that was necessary to shoot down Nazi aircraft.”

– Kathleen McGowan Coppens (Author/Researcher),
(Author, The Expected One), (The Source of Miracles),
(The Book of Love)

Parkinson’s dream inspired him to create the M-9 electrical gun director, which allowed Allied anti-aircraft guns to hit moving targets like the dangerous V-1 rocket with incredible accuracy.  But how could such an advanced weapon be completely realized in a single dream?

“The weird part about it is this guy was a scientist, but he knew nothing about aeronautics. Because David Parkinson had no background in aerodynamics, his contemporaries, other scientists, and the military were literally taking him not seriously at all. But he insisted and he even spent a lot of his own time creating prototypes, which eventually were found to work.”

Avalon in the New World),
(Alexander the Great: Murder at Babylon),
(The Templars & the Ark of the Covenant),
(Atlantis & the Ten Plagues of Egypt)

“Throughout human history, there are amazing stories of how mankind has been inspired through their dreams and through their visions. I think we have to ask ourselves what is the source of this inspiration? Where do these dreams and visions come from? Is it possible that we are being communicated with by otherworldly beings?”

– Kathleen McGowan Coppens (Author/Researcher),
(Author, The Expected One), (The Source of Miracles),
(The Book of Love)

Could extraterrestrials really be using dreams to convey ideas and information to the human race? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and claim the proof that dream manipulation is a real possibility can be found in the human brain.
