Meditation & Health #4 – UFOs: The Search For Oneness
UFOs: The Search For Oneness
By Wendy Sterndale
Beyond stress relief, relaxation and anxiety reduction, some people meditate for clarity, in order to know themselves deeply and thoroughly. It can be said that meditation is a search for the source of your life. Disciplined meditators report that meditation is a way to reach the stars. City lights provide an imaginative metaphor for the night sky. When you gaze at the city, do you imagine what the many people may be doing right now? When you look up at the night sky, do you wonder if there is life out there? Have you ever looked up and seen something looking back at you? When you meditate, or when you dream, do you travel to the stars?
Extraterrestrials and Extradimensionals
Some scientists say that humanity descended from astronomers who looked to the stars to determine when to plant or hunt. Those astronomers descended from the stars.
Our world was birthed over 4.5 billion years ago when radiation and heat collided with a huge cloud of ash and dust, forming our sun, and then the planets that revolve around it. Tides, created by the moon’s gravitational pull on the Earth, stirred all these molecules and chemical structures together, which generated life. Astronomer and astrophysicist Carl Sagan said, “The sky is made by life.” The molecules and structures from which our bodies were created came from, and continue to be found throughout, the universe.
It seems reasonable that the molecules that formed our intelligent life have combined in similar ways somewhere else. It is unlikely that we are alone.
Many people agree with this view. Thirty-six percent, or 80 million Americans, are sure UFOs are real and 11% are pretty sure they’ve seen one, according to a 2012 National Geographic Channel survey.
The conditions on our planet make it impossible for all life created on Earth to exist in every environment. A fish can’t ride a bicycle, and we can’t survive underwater. Similarly, conditions in parts of the universe incompatible with human life may be well suited for other life forms. Given the limited physical capabilities of our eyeballs, we may not even be capable of seeing them. Extradimensionals are beings that exist outside our concepts of time and space, beings which our biology may not even be able to perceive, yet they may be here on Earth for all we know. Regardless of differences, it is common to wonder, what traits and characteristics do we share with whatever we may find…out there? Do extraterrestrials have a spirit, a soul? How much control do they have over their environment? Can they travel to other planets?
Extraterrestrials and extradimensionals may possess very different characteristics and communication styles from what we are accustomed to, and from each other. Extremely low-frequency energy transmission that mimics natural brainwaves can pass through a cell membrane and perhaps deliver a message. Extradimensional beings may communicate via telepathy.
Some extradimensional beings may easily teleport themselves around the planet or travel through time, and may come and go. They may be able to change their shape on a whim. Or, be so large that we are really the equivalent of goldfish in a bowl under observation by extradimensional “cats.” People or life forms previously perceived as “gods” on Earth could have been extradimensional beings.
The modern age of Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) sightings began the summer of 1947, when thousands of people looked up at the night sky and reported seeing something that was perhaps looking back at them. Reports of sightings come from a wide range of members of society, including educated, respected individuals such as pilots, military personnel and elected officials. In some cases, many people reported the same phenomena from multiple viewing points. About 95% of sightings were judged as misidentification of manmade artifacts like failed weather balloons, human-shaped dummies tossed from planes to test equipment, weather anomalies or tricks of reflected sunlight. The other 5% fall into the category of genuinely Unidentified Flying Objects. Rational thought reminds us that they are not necessarily extraterrestrial when they cannot be identified. Reports of sightings spark the imagination and challenge preconceptions about the universe.
1997-Phoenix Lights, Arizona
One of the biggest mass sightings was the “Phoenix Lights,” a boomerang formation that hovered for quite a few hours over three Southwestern states on March 13, 1997. Arizona’s governor at the time, Fife Symington, made jokes about it, but he apologized later. “The universe is a big place,” Symington told reporters. “We’re conceited to think we’re alone.”
1947-Mt. Rainier, Washington
One of the first reputable sightings occurred on June 24, 1947, when a respected pilot with over 9000 hours’ flight time, Kenneth Arnold, saw a bright flashing light near Mt. Rainier and looked around, but only saw one plane about 15 miles behind and to the left. Then he saw a series of bright flashes. He maneuvered the plane to look for birds and test his vision but found no issues. He reported nine brightly reflective objects as “disk-like” and one as “something like a pie plate that was cut in half with a sort of a convex triangle in the rear”, similar to a crescent. They “flew like a saucer would if you skipped it across the water.” At least three similar reports came from the ground that day. The U.S. Air Force listed Arnold’s report as a mirage.
This sighting was the first of hundreds across the United States that summer, the same summer of the well-known sighting north of Roswell, New Mexico, of an apparent crash landing.
1947-Roswell, New Mexico
On July 8th, the Roswell Army Air Field press officer Lt. Walter G. Haut issued a press release, as dictated by Base Commander Col. William Blanchard:
“…The flying object landed on a ranch near Roswell sometime last week. … Action was immediately taken and the disk was picked up at the rancher’s home. …”
This was also one of the most famous events for those who speculate on government cover-ups about UFOs, extraterrestrials and extradimensionals. The July 9, 1947, edition of the Roswell Daily Record reported an updated description: Parts of a weather balloon had been found on the ranch, and no mention of a disk. There was never any mention of a pilot or crew. The incident slipped from public memory.
During his life Lt. Haut said he had not seen any alien craft, or bodies. He said he was only superficially involved. But in a sealed, notarized affidavit to be opened after his death in 2005, Lt. Haut testified that he saw an egg-shaped alien vehicle and small bodies at the Roswell Base.
Mass sightings have been reported in Los Angeles, the UK and Japan, to name just a few. Multiple people, sometimes hundreds or thousands, separately reported similar experiences. The flying objects were usually round, but could have been cone or crescent-shaped. They were often brightly lit, sometimes orange but may have changed colors or appeared as shiny silver metal. They were silent, moved faster than the speed of light, maneuvered abruptly while maintaining speed, may have slowed down, sped up or disappeared suddenly. On November 7, 2006, about a dozen United Airlines employees and thousands outside the airport reported seeing a disk-shaped object in the airspace above Chicago’s O’Hare airport. The object was visible for about two minutes before it suddenly sped through the clouds. At least one airline employee called the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA concluded that the reports were of a weather phenomenon that did not merit investigation.
UFO researchers have been outspoken about the military and other UFO debunkers covering up what the researchers perceived as confirmed information about extraterrestrial visits. Skeptics and UFO debunkers used examples of NASA’s press briefings about microbial life on Mars, water found in Saturn’s rings and the relative livability of a planet called Gliese 581g that orbits around red dwarf star Gliese 581, as evidence that the possibility of extraterrestrial life has been shared with the general public. None of these reports included contact with intelligent extraterrestrial life. The military has historically said that there is no cover-up because there is simply nothing to report. That is beginning to change.
Some UFO researchers have speculated on possible government points of view about withholding information: If the government and military publicly accepted the existence of intelligent alien life, that information could interfere with strongly held religious and cultural beliefs, which could then upset society’s structures. People would panic.
Perhaps our history would need to be rewritten. How would the conversation be different if the UFO researchers, skeptics and debunkers, and members of the military, began to meditate regularly? Would a new trend of openness prevail?
Coordinated Information Release
Former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer stated at a talk he gave in 2010 that extraterrestrial visitors have been coming to the planet for quite some time, and that they are here to help us. They started coming in greater numbers when seeing our planet on a path to violent self-destruction. He said that war activities are going on without the knowledge of presidents and defense ministers because it has been deemed that they do not have a need to know. He advocated lifting veils of secrecy.
The same year, CNN aired a live presentation at the National Press Club by several former high-ranking members of the United States Air Force during which they talked about procedures to follow when encountering an extraterrestrial. Most often they were tasked with restarting nuclear missiles that had mysteriously shut down after UFO sightings. Some described actual sightings while stationed in the UK that they speculated were either extraterrestrial or extradimensional.
Government officials, pilots, astronauts and researchers from many countries have been calling upon their governments to release information on UFOs and extraterrestrials. The suppression of information is an offense against the world, especially when that information would lead to knowledge that could broaden our worldview. Fifty-six percent of those surveyed in 2008 Scripps and Ohio University surveys said it is very likely or somewhat likely that humans are not alone in the universe and 8% have seen a mysterious object in the sky.
Physical Evidence on Earth
At the mouth of the Nile Delta, on the Giza plateau, are three pyramids that mirror the constellation Orion. The middle pyramid, the biggest one, is the Great Pyramid of Giza. The pyramids are constructed of huge, irregularly shaped granite blocks weighing many tons each that fit tightly together without mortar. Inside, chambers are lined with huge, finely polished blocks. Corners with sharp consistent edges of great lengths cannot be replicated today. Through history’s cataclysmic events, pyramids and similarly constructed structures have survived.
When studying the pyramids through reverse engineering, Christopher Donn, a British engineer in Cairo, discovered that the pyramid generated energy and reduced pressure on the Earth’s tectonic plate below. This generated an acoustic environment that created health and harmony among the people in the region.
Guillemette Andreu-Lanoë, Egyptian Antiquities Curator at Musée Du Louvre, Paris, said, “From the first pyramid to the last statue, there’s a desire for cosmic balance and being a part of this cosmic balance is the duty and wish of every Egyptian.”
Almost every proportion of the Great Pyramid reflects some aspect of Earth. “Draw a circle touching the outside points of the base of the pyramid, and another circle touching the inside four walls of the pyramid, add them together and you get the speed of light in millions of meters per second,” said Jean-Louis Besdevant, Physicist and Professor of Polytechnic School.
The techniques used to construct the pyramids at Giza are found elsewhere in the world. These sites have in common huge building scale, irregularly shaped stones that fit together seamlessly and are replicated in ways that indicate intentional shapes, precise orientation with a compass, celestial alignments (the Equinox was indicated at each site) indicating highly developed astrological skills, earthquake-proof construction techniques, hieroglyphic writing and mummified bodies.
Writing on rocks at Easter Island, in the southern hemisphere in the Pacific Ocean, that no one can read, is similar to writing at a sacred site 12,500 miles away in Pakistan, Mohenjo Daro. Statues at Easter Island look similar to statues found in Peru.
A line from Easter Island to Giza is part of a 25,000 mile-long perfect circle around the globe that passes through many of the world’s sacred sites: In Peru, it passes through seven sites; in Africa, through Mali and the Land of the Dogons where they knew about the invisible star Sirius B before modern-day astronomers; and then, through the Tassili N’Ajjer mountain range in Southern Algiers, speculated to be the birthplace of ancient Egypt and home to the largest number of stone paintings in the world – including one of the “Great Martian God.” In Egypt, it goes through the Giza plateau and the Siwa Oasis. In Jordan, through Petra. In Iraq, it goes through the ancient Sumerian city of Ur. In Iran, it goes through Persepolis, the capital of ancient Persia. It crosses sites known as homes of the gods in India, Burma, Thailand and Cambodia.
Today, many scientists assume that knowledge accumulates over time, but what if it doesn’t? When we consider the volumes of knowledge lost through the destruction of libraries and civilizations, we see how wisdom ebbs and flows over time. And with that knowledge, so do cultures ebb and flow.
Some theorists suggest that we are at a threshold from which we could either leap forward toward empathic wisdom in a rich culture or destroy ourselves. Scientists and meditators share a curiosity about the Universal self as reflected in others, and they seek to advance personal knowledge. What principles do extraterrestrials and extradimensionals live by? Did they collaborate with the ancient Egyptians to build the pyramids as a message to warn our current society about a looming cataclysmic event beyond our control? Do they meditate? As we meditate, we explore our connection to boundless oneness.
Perhaps they live by Universal principles of spirituality that have to do with how we treat each other. Perhaps they have come to warn us against dangerous choices. Perhaps they have come to Earth, not only as teachers and guides, but to learn from us as well. Just as all people share a certain unity, all living things, regardless of where they are from, are endowed with spirit. Deep reflection can help us to understand ourselves, and therefore others. Perhaps we are at the cusp of flowing knowledge, just as the Nile flows in a path that reflects the Milky Way.
