6.6 – THE STAR CHILDREN (2.7.14)


Throughout the world, there are children who possess astonishing abilities. In 2002, Sho Yano graduated summa cum laude from Loyola University Chicago at the age of 12. Six years later, he received a PhD in molecular genetics and cell biology. In 2006, six-year-old Ainan Celeste Cawley of Singapore who spoke his first words at two weeks old gave a science lecture about acid and alkaloids. And in 2013, Adam Kirby became the youngest member of British Mensa at just two years old, scoring 141 on an IQ test and reading books by the age of ten months.

“Highly gifted children often know things that they shouldn’t know. They often surprise us with the things they’re able to understand at very young ages. And they’re able to bring together disparate pieces of information from history, scientific discovery and their own experiences and heightened intuitive sense.”

 – Stephanie E. Meyer, Ph.D. (Child Psychologist)

Throughout human history, there have been children who stand out for their advanced knowledge and incredible abilities. But are these uniquely talented and intelligent children simply the product of good genetics? Or could there be another explanation for why some children display abilities far beyond their years? Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe there are children born here on Earth who have a connection to beings from beyond our world. They call them Star Children.

“When we see these Star Children, these children who are gifted with extraordinary human function, born seeming to know things already, show that there is some sort of interaction going on with a nonphysical intelligence.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“The concept is that children are being born with a higher level of awareness. These kids, many people believe, are being born in order to help usher in a true new age a time of peace, a time of greater consciousness and greater prosperity for the planet.”

David Weatherly (Author, The Blackeyed Children)

“What is commonly termed the Star Children has always been with the American Indian people throughout the ages. And these are special children. They’re the ones that can heal with their hands.”

Clifford Mahooty (Zuni Tribal Elder)

“These Star Children are said to have lots of special qualities. Their psychic abilities are quite enhanced. So, these Star Children, in a way, are some new race that’s living amongst us right now.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Is it possible that some of the world’s most gifted children really have an otherworldly connection, a connection that endows them with special gifts and the power to transform society? Today, there is evidence that a higher number of unusually gifted children are being born than ever before.

“There is genetic evidence to prove that humans are evolving at a rapid rate of speed. For example, an anthropologist from the University of Wisconsin named Professor John Hawks studied human DNA, and what he found was that in the past 5,000 years alone, human DNA has evolved by seven percent in its overall genetic structure. That is a staggering amount. Every decade we’re getting smarter and smarter and smarter.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

But those who have studied the Star Children phenomenon say that these unusually gifted children display more than just superior intelligence.

“Star kids are advanced in several departments. These kids are much brighter than the old schoolchild of a previous generation. They are very sensitive. They are compassionate. They have a mission sense. They’re using special gifts they have as advanced star kids. For example, in the area of telepathy they can pick up on things that somebody else is thinking or sensing.”

– Richard Boylan, Ph.D.
(Author, Starkids: The Emerging Cosmic Generation)

“Parents of Star Children know that their children are different. Maybe their child is psychic and talking about seeing things that other people can’t see or hearing things other people can’t hear, or knowing things that other people don’t know. Some of the Star Children have very high energy. They can go long periods without sleeping, without eating. It’s just not your normal, typical child.”

Nikki Pattillo (Author, The Spiral Evolution)

According to Nikki Pattillo, her daughter Maddy has told her that her home is in the sky, and has displayed numerous astonishing abilities like telekinesis and psychic visions. But could ten-year-old Maddy Pattillo really have superhuman abilities? If so, where did they come from?  And is it possible that Star Children have been with us for thousands of years? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say evidence that Star Children may have existed on Earth in the distant past can be found in a story that dates back over 2,000 years.

Greece, the 6th-century BC. Mnesarchus, the father of philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, was traveling home from work one day when he came upon an abandoned infant staring at the sun and he was surviving solely on the dew from a nearby tree.

“Mnesarchus named this baby Astraios, which literally means Star Child in Greek. And here is an early example of a magical child. He adopted it. He raised it with Pythagoras and his two brothers. So, it was part of their family.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

According to the Greek myth, as recorded by Antonius Diogenes, Mnesarchus gave the child to Pythagoras to be his servant and apprentice. Although Pythagoras is considered one of history’s greatest mathematical minds, some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe he may have received advanced knowledge from the boy, Astraios.

“It’s believed that Astraios was actually sent to Earth in order to instruct Pythagoras, whose mystic concepts became foundational to the ancient world.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

“So, here we have a curious story of someone named Star Child, who had these special powers, whose birth is really a mystery. And so, this child, Astraios, was perhaps one of the early extraterrestrial children sent to planet Earth.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Could this peculiar child have actually instructed one of the greatest minds of the ancient world? And considering the Greeks described powerful beings who came down from the sky, is it possible, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, that Astraios was the offspring of the gods part human and part divine?

“Many ancient cultures, among them the ancient Greeks and the Egyptians and many others, describe how some children were born from humans and the so-called gods. Star Children are what some consider a new breed of people.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Is the story of Astraios really an early account of a Star Child? And if the Star Children have existed here on Earth throughout our history, what is the source of their superior intelligence and unexplainable abilities?

“Science tells us that in addition to the two-strand double-helix DNA, there’s an additional ten etheric strands of DNA that is dormant in humans, and has been since recorded history. It’s highly possible that alien creators have designed us this way and certain individuals are chosen throughout time to awaken these dormant strands in order to help mankind advance.”

– Bret Oldham (Author, Children of the Greys)

Are Star Children really tapping into something inherent in our DNA? According to geneticist David Reich of the Harvard Medical School, there is, in fact, something mysterious inside us that has yet to be identified. In his study published in the fall of 2013, Reich examined the genome of Neanderthals and another group of ancient hominids known as Denisovans, both of which interbred with humans. He discovered that their DNA, dating back more than 400,000 years, contains an unknown ancestor.

“Now, this is incredibly exciting to me, because I’ve always maintained that what some geneticists currently refer to as “junk DNA” might not be junk after all. And this study proves this in part. DNA is a code. And just because its code hasn’t been cracked yet doesn’t mean it’s actually junk. And to speculate even further, what if this unknown species was not of earthly origin, and every human being already is part alien?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Is it really possible that extraterrestrial beings modified mankind’s DNA in the distant past, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists contend? And if so, might certain exceptional people like Star Children have found a way to channel their alien origins? Perhaps additional clues lie in the Mexican desert, where a discovery was made of a mysterious skull.
