8.3 – ALIENS & ROBOTS (8.7.15)


Norway. November, 2014. Scientists from the University of Oslo work on a new breakthrough in robotics, creating robots that are able to adapt and continue functioning even after losing a limb. The robots also know how to create new limbs with the use of a 3-D printer and reapply them, effectively repairing themselves without the aid of a human being. This new technology is the first step in achieving what Hungarian scientist, John Von Neumann envisioned back in the 1940s: self-replicating robots.

“John Von Neumann was a mathematician that had an idea about self-replicating machines, where you send out a seed machine and that machine will seek out raw materials to construct a copy of itself, and then that will then send that machine out to replicate itself.”

Nic Radford
(Chief Technology Officer, Houston Mechatronics, Inc.)

“So one become two, two become four, and eventually these things would be able to explore the entire cosmos. Now, one theory is that extraterrestrial civilizations would build space probes like that, and that would be the quickest way to explore the entire Universe.”

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

“The interesting question is going to be the extent to which part of that self-replicationing includes the memories and the learning that the first generation of robots engage with. So, you’d want to make the robots as open to new experiences as we are but at the same time be able also to pass on the experiences from any given generation to the next generation through self-replication. So, I think that this could be a very important way, in terms of space travel, to go. I mean, I think the more interesting question, from the standpoint of ourselves as human beings, is the extent to which we remain part of that process.”

Steve Fuller, Ph.D.
(Author, Humanity 2.0: What it Means to be Human)

Is it possible that we could create self-aware robots that are completely autonomous and send them off to explore the Universe unassisted? And might these robots be able to self-replicate endlessly, using materials found on distant planets? Ancient Astronaut Theorists propose that extraterrestrial beings may have already achieved this technology.

“It is entirely possible that an advanced civilization I’m saying far more advanced than we are on Earth. Could actually develop this technology of self-replicating machines and then could send artificially intelligent robots out into space as sentinels that scan a much vaster area than that civilization itself could go to with manned probes. It’s something that probably is already very widely in use by a variety of extraterrestrial civilizations.”

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

“The Von Neumann machines are an awesome idea that is reflected in ancient stories of extraterrestrials coming to Earth. In the ancient Egyptian tradition, we learn of these formless light beings that emerged from what they describe as the Island of the Egg and create civilization. It suggests that they’re utilizing some kind of self-replicating robot that has the ability to utilize genetic forms, perhaps imported from the home planet, that can then be manifested on a new planet, in our case, Earth.”

– 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)

Is it possible that evidence of self-replicating robots can be found in ancient historical and religious texts, such as those concerning ancient Egypt? And, if so, is mankind today merely tapping into knowledge that was available on Earth thousands of years ago, knowledge that might have been brought here by extraterrestrial space travelers? According to some Ancient Astronaut Theorists, the concept that extraterrestrial life-forms may have first visited the earth as machines or robots is not only likely but logical and can even help to explain a series of alien encounters that have been reported as recently as the 20th-century, encounters with robot visitors that might otherwise be referred to as the Greys.
