8.10 – THE FORBIDDEN ZONES (10.9.15)


Lhasa, Tibet.  Situated nearly 12,000 feet above sea level, the Tibetan capital of Lhasa, or “Place of the Gods,” has long been considered one of the least accessible areas of the world. For over three decades, Tibet was entirely closed off to outsiders after the forcible takeover of the region and exile of its spiritual leader the Dalai Lama in 1959 by the Chinese Army. During their siege of the city, Chinese Red Guards systematically destroyed temples, frescoes, and ancient religious texts.

“It’s a terrible legacy from the Great Library at Alexandria, the library at Sarajevo, more recently in Phnom Penh. Other stories like the Nazi book burning there seems to be this thing that happens where some revolutionary energy wants to destroy the cultural treasures of the past.”

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

“When one culture conquers another culture, you want to kill their ideology, and the way that you do that is you burn their books. You banish their ideas. You banish their language. You banish their religious practices. You burn the ancient records.”

Robert Cargill, Ph.D.
(Former: Biblical Archaeologist, UCLA),
(Current: Asst. Prof. of Classic & Religious Studies,
Univ. of Iowa)

Throughout history, military conflict has resulted not only in loss of life but also the destruction of cultural heritage. And even when setting out to colonize the New World, early explorers and missionaries systematically eradicated what they considered to be pagan texts and mythologies of Native American, Mesoamerican, and Polynesian tribes they encountered.

“They destroy artifacts. They bury sites. It’s almost as if this is a deliberate blotting out of the past. It’s as if the roots of human civilization itself are being hidden from us.”

Nick Pope (British Ministry of Defense, 1985-2006),
(Author, Open Skies, Closed Minds)

“With the destruction of knowledge, we may well be losing our connection to the gods, extraterrestrials of the past, how they interacted with us, what they wanted us to do.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“Why is it that these records continually seem to get misplaced or they get burned or they get destroyed or they’re deliberately ruined? Is it possible that there is, in fact, an ongoing extraterrestrial presence that has somehow infiltrated into our society? Could this extraterrestrial intelligence be deliberately thwarting any effort for itself to be discovered from the ancient records?”

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

Could there really be aliens among us inciting conflict, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest? And, if so, might we find this conflict concentrated in so-called forbidden zones? But why? And perhaps even more importantly, how has this violent behavior been accomplished?

Pasadena, California. Scientists at the California Institute of Technology identify a set of neurons in the hypothalamus of mouse brains that correspond to aggression. Through a technique called optogenetics, the group uses pulses of light to activate the neurons and instantaneously incite violence in the mice.

“There are many ways in which we can affect or manipulate the brain or brain function. And there’s a really exciting new technique called optogenetics. And although it’s not being used in humans yet, it’s being used in animal trials. And what that is, is they actually manipulate a virus so that it becomes a delivery system for a gene that’s taken from a photosensitive algae. And that gene is then delivered to specific neurons, and then those neurons are triggered to fire via light. You can control the behavior of the animal via remote control in the sense all you have to do is trigger the different types of receptors to fire. If you actually go in and stimulate the prefrontal cortex, you can cause animals to act out aggressively.”

– Heather Berlin, Ph.D., M.P.H.
(Prof. of Neuroscience, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine),
(Neuroscientist, Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai)

In 2010, scientists at Osaka University and at the University of Texas publish separate findings both indicating that up to eight percent of the human genome comes from viruses and not from our ancestral DNA. Could this help explain how extraterrestrials might be able to incite humans to violence, just as researchers have used viruses to trigger aggression in mice?

“Somebody genetically altered us a long, long time ago, and they intentionally put in this ability to become violent. There’s no question that people could be manipulated, could be used to do all kinds of things and they wouldn’t even know it. We are simply a pawn on an extraterrestrial chess game that they can move and manipulate any time they want, that they serve up, at their whim, whenever they want. There’s no question about that.”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

Could humans be artificially stimulated to create acts of violence, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists propose? And might this stimulation be targeted to people living in certain regions of the world? Perhaps the answers can be found buried deep in the jungles of Guatemala.
