A lot of 'lore' from our ancient world seems to be in the process of being re-discovered, a great example would be the correlations between ancient eastern spiritual beliefs and quantum physics, with its strong correlation and dependence on consciousness.
Another example could be ancient health practices, commonly referred to today as naturopathic medicine.
The example in this article deals with ancient lore of beings from other worlds, and it's even more interesting because of the modern day UFO disclosure we're seeing and the evidence suggesting that some of them could be extraterrestrial is quite fascinating, at least for those who've taken the time to look.
When contemplating specifically about extraterrestrials, there are many examples to choose from.
Perhaps one of the most well-known stories comes from the work of Zecharia Sitchin, a man who authored many books proposing an explanation for human origins involving ancient astronauts.
Renowned researcher Jim Marrs in his book, Our Occulted History, describes the work of Sitchin and his findings.
Marrs goes on to describe how once there, they began to colonize and search for gold, as well as manipulate the DNA of "primitives" on Earth, who eventually came to be the kings and aristocratic families on Earth, which eventually led to devastation and war all over the globe.
Stories of other worldly beings are also present in several African legends of creation, like the Zulu people, which means "sky" people.
Their connection to the stories of Zecharia Sitchin are quite fascinating, as the stories of these "Gods" have the same aspects ascribed to the Anunnaki in the Sumerian tablets.
If you want to hear some examples of stories, see Credo Mutwa.
South African researcher Michael Tellinger, also describes it quite well, this is another excerpt from Our Occulted History.
Another example could be Quetzalcoatl, considered to be a mythical tale.
Spanish chronicler, Juan de Torquemada, states that Quetzalcoatl was,
Researcher Graham Hancock describes him as follows:
Now, it's important to keep in mind that there are multiple stories here from many time periods.
Mesopotamia really seems like a place where extraterrestrial contact was happening frequently, and we are getting a glimpse of what might have taken place.
There are stories of friendly contact between various tribes in North America, and there are different types of beings, different descriptions, yet so many similarities.
To be honest, as Astronaut Story Musgrave once said,
The story of human history may not be how it's being told, the way it's told now is quite dull in my opinion, we are stuck on creationism and evolution as our only two options when it could be something far greater and more complex and wild, with a little mix of everything, perhaps...
Our world is drenched in secrecy, and what are perceived as the most "outlandish" ideas, in a lot of cases, usually hold the most validity. Truth does not stop, it's always there. However, the human perception of truth and reaction to it sort of determines what we create as truth.
If we all believe something to be, it might be?
But those are deeper discussions; the point is, there are truths which remain, when humanity will choose to accept them so we can move on from the ones that do not resonate, is a different story, but we're doing a good job so far.
According to Sitchin, approximately half a million years ago these Anunnaki beings came to Earth because our planet and their planet came in close proximity.
Sitchin's work has been criticized and rejected by mainstream academia, in the same way as parapsychology.
For example, a statistics professor at UC Irvine published a paper showing that parapsychological experiments have produced much stronger results than those showing a daily dose of aspirin to help prevent a heart attack.
When you push the boundaries of beliefs, no matter how many researchers, scholars, and academics agree with you, there will always be the big one that doesn't and that is the person who will get the most publicity in order to discredit you, in order to maintain some sort of status quo.
This is what has happened with many people, including Sitchin, but there's a reason why millions of people are so fascinated by all of the connections made by him, and those who have followed his work or do research in a similar area.
For example, Paul Von Ward, a prominent author, researcher and psychologist wrote,
An author who has studied more than three hundred translations of ancient Mesopotamian and Vedic writings, C.L. Turnage wrote,
Nonetheless, fascinating facts remain unexplainable unless we take an extraterrestrial perspective. Take for example that ancient Sumerians were accurately describing the planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto…
These planets can't even be seen without a telescope.
The Tenth Planet
This kind of thing has been quite popular at certain points in human history.
In 1981 scientists were contemplating the possibility regarding strange evidence suggesting an additional solar body in our system.
Marrs' book goes on to describe an article by Hugh McCann, a writer for Detroit News at the time,
The Sumerians called it The 12th Planet, but they counted the Moon and the Sun so it makes sense.
On the 30th of December in 1983, the Washington Post had a front page headline that read,
What also comes to mind here are the recent statements (below video at ~4:35 min.) by Apollo 15 astronaut Al Worden,
His comments differ significantly from Dr. Edgar Mitchell's, who said he,
Our world is drenched in secrecy...
Do you think if such a body in our solar system was detected that we'd even hear anything about it? Most likely not...
Again, the story of the Anunnaki could very will be true, but this was a long time ago, and if that planet does exist, perhaps things have changed on it as well.
We are looking at, if anything, one small account of extraterrestrial contact that's occurred throughout this planet's history.
