With the release of the book,
The Day After Roswell, by Col.
Philip Corso (ret). The controversial issue of whether or not
the United States came into possession of extraterrestrial
technology, has once again become a subject of contention among
believers and skeptics alike. In his book, Col. Corso claims he
spearheaded a super secret reverse-engineering project that "seeded"
extraterrestrial technology into American corporations such as IBM,
Hughes Aircraft, Bell Labs, and Dow Corning. These corporations had
no knowledge of the extraterrestrial origins because Corso, through
his contacts, had implied that the technology was clandestinely
obtained from the Soviet Union.
He describes the devices found aboard the Roswell craft, and how
they became the precursors for todayís integrated circuit chips,
fiber optics, lasers, night-vision equipment, super-tenacity fibers
(such as Kevlar plastic armor), stealth aircraft technology, and
"Star Wars" particle-beam devices. He also discusses the role that
extraterrestrial technology played in shaping geopolitical policy
and events, how it helped the United States surpass the Russians in
space, spurred elaborate Army initiatives such as SDI ("Star Wars"
Projects), and ultimately brought about the end of the Cold War.
Col. Corsoís claims are nothing new to anyone familiar with UFO
history. However, instead of hard-to-trace stories from nameless
witnesses, Col. Corso has been up front about his involvement in the
situation. This has come as somewhat of a surprise to many,
considering Col. Corsoís long and distinguished career in the
military. His service included being an intelligence officer on
General Douglas MacArthurís staff during the Korean War, a member of
President Eisenhowerís National Security Council, as well as head of
Foreign Technology in Army Research and Development at the Pentagon
in the early 1960s.
While Corso could have made up the
entire story, it is difficult to find any good explanation why he
would want to do so, considering that UFO books are rarely best
sellers. Col. Corsoís book however, seems to corroborate the claims
of others: that some of our modern technology was gleaned from
Stories and folklore of crashed flying saucers and acquired alien
technology are considered to be a 20th century phenomenon. However,
legends and tales from our distant past reveal that mankind has
periodically been the recipient of technology not from this planet.
The appearance of Homo Sapiens some 200,000 years ago seems to defy
modern theories of human evolution. Even though humans are clearly
related to primates, there has been little fossil evidence to
support that modern man naturally evolved from his primitive
relatives. In fact, if we go by fossil records, modern type men
appeared suddenly on the planet, and soon supplanted his other less
developed brethren. The sudden appearance of civilization,
especially in prehistoric Mesopotamia, has also confounded
scientists over the years.
For thousands of years the height of
mans technological achievement was the use of flaked stone tools.
Then seemingly overnight, neolithic-nomadic hunters discovered
agriculture, which in turn brought about the emergence of defined
communities. One of the oldest known civilizations were the
Sumerians. No one knows for sure where the Sumerians came from,
because their language and culture have no traceable sources.
However, they did things that no human beings had done before.
Between 3900 B.C. and 3000 B.C., the Sumerians developed a society
rich in art and technology never before seen in the annals of
Zecharia Sitchin believes that the Sumerians were able to
achieve their high order of society because they had guidance from
the Anunnaki, or "those who from heaven to Earth came."
biblical scholar and linguist, is one of only 200 people in the
world to decipher and read the early Sumerian language. Sitchin
believes that the Sumerians wrote down the true story of highly
advanced aliens that came to Earth and created the human race.
According to his interpretation of the
ancient texts, wisdom was "lowered from heaven to Earth" by aliens
around 3760 BC. This gift of knowledge, says Sitchin, included
agriculture, medicine, and mathematics. The Anunnaki also disclosed
the secrets of astronomy. Sitchin says that the ancients actually
understood the solar system better than many later generations of
astronomers. The Sumerians were aware of all the planets in the
solar system, they also wrote of a planet that modern astronomers
have yet to discover, the home planet of the Anunnaki,
Sumerian legends tell the story of how the Anunnaki came to Earth
from Nibiru in order to mine gold. The Anunnaki soon grew tired of
the back-breaking labor. Ninharsag, the goddess in charge of
medicine, combined the genes of the Anunnaki with a primitive
ape-man or hominid and created a Lulu, a primitive worker, to
relieve the Anunnaki of their labor. Ninharsag, thereafter named
Ninti, or "lady who gives life," held up the prototype hybrid and
cried out, "My hands have made it." The Lulu resembled the Anunnaki.
Unlike its hairy ape-man ancestor, the hybrid had according to
the Atra Hasis text, "a skin as the skin of a god."
Man was created in
the image of the gods.
Many ancient peoples believed that their technology was a result of
gifts from the gods. The gods would occasionally come down to Earth
in times of great need, and assist humankind with various kinds of
knowledge. This tale has been so often repeated in the past that the
recent stories of acquired technology from a crashed flying saucer
could be the modern version of gifts from the gods. Gods that still
have an interest in mankind, their own creation.
Dr.V.Raghavan, retired head of the Sanskrit department of India's
prestigious University of Madras, contends that centuries-old
documents in Sanskrit (the classical language of India and Hinduism)
prove that aliens from outer space visited Earth centuries ago.
"Fifty years of researching this
ancient works convinces me that there are living beings on other
planets, and that they visited earth as far back as 4,000 B.C.,
" The scholar says. "There's just a mass of fascinating
information about flying machines, even fantastic science
fiction weapons, that can be found in translations of the Vedas
(scriptures), Indian epics, and other ancient Sanskrit text."
The Mahabharata (writings), mentions
divine lighting and ray weapons, and even a kind of hypnotic weapon.
there is also a description of
Vimanas, or flying machines, that
navigated at great heights with the aid of mercury and a great
propulsive wind. These were space vehicles similar to the
unidentified flying objects reported throughout the world today.
The Ramayana even describes a beautiful
sky chariot which "arrived shining, a wonderful divine car that sped
through the air." In another passage, there is mention of a chariot
being seen "sailing overhead like a moon." The references in the
Mahabharata are no less astounding.
"At Rama's behest, the magnificent
chariot rose up to a mountain of cloud with a tremendous din."
Another passage reads:
"Bhima flew with his Vimana on an
enormous ray which was as brilliant as the sun and made a noise
like the thunder of a storm."
In the ancient
of aeronautics), there is a description of a Vimana:
"An apparatus which can go by its
own force, from place to place or globe to globe." Dr. Raghavan
points out, "The text's revelations become even more astounding.
Thirty-one parts of which the machine consists are described,
including a photographing mirror underneath. The text also
speaks of 16 kinds of metal that are needed to construct the
flying vehicle, but only three of them are known to us today.
The rest remain untranslatable."
Another authority who agrees with Dr.
Raghavan's interpretations is Dr.A.V. Krishna Murty, professor of
aeronautics at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore.
"It is true," Dr.Krishna Murty says,
"that the ancient Indian Vedas and other text refer to
aeronautics, spaceships, flying machines, and even astronauts."
Dr. Krishna continues, "A study of the Sanskrit texts has
convinced me that ancient India did know the secret of building
flying machines-and that those machines were patterned after
spaceships coming from other planets."
If we are to believe the ancient tales
and legends of our predecessors, humankind was originally bred to be
slaves by alien visitors to our planet. Using the genetic material
of early hominids, the visitors combined their own genes to create a
new species, a species that was both mortal and divine. That species
we now know today as Homo Sapiens. The ancient texts state that man
was given the gift of knowledge, making him almost like the gods.
The gods however denied man the gift of immortality, for if mankind
had both the gift of knowledge and of immortality, then he would be
just as the gods.
After nearly wiping out their genetically engineered offspring more
than once, the visitors eventually decided to leave man to his own
affairs. They have however, continued to interact with man at
various times in history. Priesthoods and mystical orders were
established, the mysteries taught were called Gnosis, or knowledge.
These secrets were the secrets of science and technology, hidden in
a veil of religion and mysticism.
The mysteries were taught by
scientifically educated humans, initiated into a bond with the
extraterrestrials and preserving their teachings. Unfortunately over
the centuries, the scientific knowledge and teachings degenerates
and is lost, so an occasional re-seeding of knowledge is necessary.
This process continues today. Abductions and other forms of contact
with UFOs seems to indicate a vast, subtle education system that
interacts with people on an individual level, but is ultimately
geared to influence mankind on a far larger scale.
We must consider that UFO crashes were deliberate acts in order to
infiltrate new technology to mankind. Recently, stories have
surfaced about what the Army or Air Force supposedly did with the
downed alien spacecraft. Nuclear powered engines, advanced
communications and computers, all of which were a hundred years
beyond post-World War II technology, were allegedly taken from the
alien wreck and later were sent to The Bell Systemís Bell
Laboratories, then located in Murray Hill, New Jersey.
There, the technology was studied,
dissected, micro-analyzed and tested. One piece was supposedly found
to be a switching device composed of Silicon and Arsenic, arranged
in a microscopic array much more complicated than anything made at
the time. The device became the priority focus of Bell Labsí and The
US Department of Defenseís analysis and scientific research.
It was discovered by the researchers, that the unusual electronic
alien device could act as both a high speed electronic switch and as
an amplifier. They decided to call it the "Transfer Resistor,"
because it could be made to resist or accept power flow at much
higher or lower currents than were applied to it, depending upon
unique application of electron flows.
The alien silicon "amplifier / switch," evaluated in October and
November of 1947, was discovered to have enormous implications. The
alien device was allegedly a hundred years beyond the then simple
"junction diodes" commonly in use at the time by military
electronics. Yet it was reportedly determined at the time that
simplified versions of the alien devices could be manufactured by
the effecting of several upgrades to existing technology. Then
President Harry S. Truman ordered the devices "cloned" and a cover
story manufactured. He was supposedly quoted as saying:
"We canít keep so earthshaking a
technological advance out of the hands of mankind. It just isnít
In mid-December of 1947, to effect a
plausible cover story, the DoD and Bell Labs purportedly
manufactured a series of Press Releases that stated: After a "2 Year
Long Extensive Research Effort" --discovery of the Transistor had
"at last" been accomplished, supposedly by Bell Labs researchers
(Drs. Shockley, Bardeen and Brattain, at Bell Labís Electronic
Circuits Research Center, under the aegis of maverick Bell Labs Vice
President John "Jack" Morton).
Since that time, The Bell System, and
Bell Labs, in the hands of successor company AT&T and its partly
owned subsidiary, Lucent Technologies, have continued to maintain
the "Transistor Story" for all of posterity, while quietly covering
up the real tracks that led the alien devices to Bell Labs.
Col. Corso however, says that the device in the famous "transfer
resistor test rig" at Bell Labs was, in fact, back engineered from
the original extraterrestrial integrated circuit array of
transistor-like circuit pieces, found in one of the alien
communication devices at the crash site in Roswell, New Mexico. It
has allegedly been reported that it took a year or more for Bell
Labs to then figure out how to commercially produce the devices.
Reportedly, subsequent technology obtained over the course of the
next 10 years by Bell Labs, from the pieces of the wreck delivered
to them by the DoD, included the Laser, enhanced solid state circuit
components, large scale switching control systems and high
definition imaging devices.
However, some devices from the downed alien spacecraft are still not
fully understood to this day. Allegedly these include a high energy
microwave amplifier that has the secondary effect of decomposing
solid objects into their molecular components. A form of circuitry
that runs on other than electrical power, using particles thought to
have very short half-lives in the natural universe ("muons"). A huge
induction generator-like coil system some 50 feet in diameter which
appears to implement part of some aspect of the vehicleís ability to
perform unique flying characteristics and aerobatics, some think it
might be a "gravity nullifying" device.
Sources have said that, in 1948 and 1949, thinking that the aliens
might object to this research, the U.S. Government hurriedly erected
anti-missile batteries in the surrounding Watchung Mountains of New
Jersey... near Bell Labís Murray Hills facility, to protect it from
space invasion. It is not known if this is any indication that the
Department of Defense deliberately shot down a space craft and
The alleged Space Defense Anti-missile Batteries, along the Lookout
Mountain Ridge north of Bell Labs, is now abandoned and partly over
built by a regional high school. On the "Lookout Mountain Nike Base"
there were, supposedly, frequent "alien anti-invasion" readiness
exercises and drills throughout the 50ís, 60ís and the early 70ís,
notably: their frequency reportedly increased any time UFO sightings
were reported to the US Air Force, particularly in the New Jersey
Claims of acquired extraterrestrial technology have been further
confirmed by Colonel Steve Wilson, U.S. Air Force (ret.), former
head of Project Pounce, an elite Air Force/National Reconnaissance
Organization Special Forces unit which allegedly retrieves downed
Colonel Wilson reports that,
"the first successful U.S.
antigravity flight took place July 18, 1971 at S-4, Dreamland
(Area 51), wherein light bending capabilities were also
demonstrated to obtain total invisibility. Present at this
flight were notables such as Admiral Bobby Inman (former
National Security Agency director), who is now head of SAIC
(Science Applications International, Incorporated) in San Diego,
CA, which makes the antigravity drives."
Colonel Wilson also revealed that the
recent announcement by Lockheed about an unmanned,
electric-propulsion reconnaissance drone with short wings named
"Dark Star," was actually a "cover" project. The exotic technology
being concealed is designated the X-22A, and manufactured by the
Lockheed Skunk Works at Helendale, CA. This craft is an operational,
two-man, wingless antigravity vehicle. Its metallic structure in
flight is hidden by an intense bluish-white light, which pulsates
off and on at about two-second intervals.
Colonel Wilson also states that the mysterious Black Helicopters
spotted around the country are actually U.S. made antigravity craft,
designated the XH-75D or "XH Shark", made by Teledyne Ryan
Aeronautical Corporation of San Diego. He says that many of these
XH-75Ds were assigned to the Delta/National Reconnaissance
Organization Division which retrieves crashed UFOs. Russia is
reported to have its own anti- gravity vehicles.
Paul Stonehill, a Russian UFO
investigator, reports that the Russians in April, 1988 started using
space-time-bending antigravity technology to do time travel. In
June, 1997, a Washington, DC-area intelligence official who has been
quite reliable in the past, has indicated that China has now
acquired antigravity technology. There have been reports that Nazi
Germany obtained extraterrestrial technology from a crashed disc
sometime during World War Two. That technology was subsequently
stolen by the Soviet Union at the end of the war, but it wasn't until
the 1980ís that the Soviets were able to effectively back engineer
some of the technology for their own use.
Some witnesses of
the Roswell incident spoke about a material
resembling lead foil that wouldnít crease or dent, and that would
return to its original shape. The July 1997 edition of AMBASSADOR,
the in-flight magazine of TWA, featured an article about a new
technology called Carbon Nanotubes. Carbon Nanotubes are
fullerene-related structures which consist of graphene cylinders
closed at either end with caps containing pentagonal rings. They
were discovered in 1991 by the Japanese electron microscopist Sumio
Carbon Nanotubes are between 10 and 100
times stronger than steel with one-sixth the weight. It can crumple
without breaking, then spring back to its original shape. Within a
few years, it may be used to reinforce airplane wings and tether
satellites to the Earth. The carbon Nanotube is thinner than a
pencil lead and made entirely of interlinked graphite atoms. This is
the strongest material known, reports Thomas Ebbesen, a professor of
chemistry at Pasteur University in Strasbourg, France, and a
pioneering expert on the filaments. Rice University physicist Peter Nordlander goes a step further, echoing the views of most
researchers working on the tubes, This is quite probably the
strongest material that can be made.
The evidence is overwhelming that man, over the centuries, has
somehow obtained science and technology far beyond their current
knowledge base. St. Augustine wrote of temples around Greece and
Egypt that had perpetual lights, unaffected by wind or rain. An
underground chamber of the
Temple of Hathor at Dendera shows priests
carrying what looks like giant electric lamps, their filaments
depicted as snakes.
While it is conceivable that mankind in
the past achieved technology equivalent to modern science, only to
lose this knowledge in some cataclysmic event. The ancient writings
of these peoples state clearly that their knowledge was given to
them by the gods, or sky people. These sky people could very well be
with us today, but instead of disguising themselves as gods, we know
them as the pilots of UFOs.
These UFO occupants wherever they come from, seem to be interested
in seeding mankind with new ideas and original thoughts.
Unidentified flying objects seen in the 19th and early 20th century
resembled the airships that would soon be developed by Earthly
inventors. The ghost rockets seen after World War Two bore a
striking resemblance to the space rockets built years later to
finally send men off the surface of the planet.
Now the UFOs resemble silver discs and
triangles, flying about with what appears to be anti-gravity
propulsion systems. Could this be the next major step in mankindís
technological revolution? Were the seeds for this technological
giant step planted in 1947? If the stories and myths of the past are
any indication, then mankind will continue to achieve scientific
wonders, thanks to gifts of technology from the gods.
