• Harvard astrophysicists Avi Loeb and Manasvi Lingam are exploring the universe looking for ‘exo-civilizations’ using “bio-signatures” and “techno-signatures” that are more technologically advanced than the radio waves that SETI depends on. Loeb and Lingam have explored a number of different ways we might find markers of another civilization.

• For instance, light reflected from a planet covered in power-generating solar cells would carry a techno-signature “signal” of all that silicon. Loeb was quick to point out that a civilization need not be alive now for us to find the techno-signatures that they left behind.

• As our technologies gets better we might suddenly find lots of signals from the activity of technological civilizations. Even a slight change in gravitational waves would create a techno-signature. There also may be artifacts existing in space rather than on planets. “These ‘messages in a bottle’ would be very difficult to detect because they would be putting out very low power,” Loeb said.

• “We humans are probably not special,” Loeb says. With so many planets in the universe, the rise of civilizations may not be so usual. And what makes this moment in history so unique is that we are now poised to start observing exo-planets and their environments in all kinds of new ways.

 

We’re entering uncharted territory.

For more than 2,000 years, we humans have been arguing about life and, in particular, intelligent life in the universe. But arguing was pretty much where it always ended.

For all that time, we never had any evidence or any data that could raise the discussion above two people with different opinions yelling at each other.

But this era may well be nearing its end.

The “exoplanet” revolution of the last 20 years has shown us that the universe is awash in alien worlds. More exciting, we now have methods where the atmospheres of those worlds may provide indirect evidence — called “bio-signatures” — for the existence of life.

Over the next few decades we may finally have data relevant to the question of other life in the universe.

But what if we want to ask about intelligence? What about alien civilizations — or, as I like to call them, “exo-civilizations”? This is something I have been thinking about a lot over the last few years (it’s the subject of my new book). In carrying out my own studies, I have often been drawn to the work of Harvard astrophysicist Avi Loeb.

Loeb works on a variety of subjects, including black holes and early cosmic history. But together with collaborator Manasvi Lingam, Loeb has carried out work that is simultaneously deep and expansive on the topic of astrobiology and exo-civilizations.

When we think of aliens and science, we usual usually think of the Search of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). This has often meant radio telescopes being used to search for messages purposely beamed at us from an exo-civilization. But unlike these kinds of purposeful signals, a “techno-signature” is an unintentional marker of the civilization’s existence. With the discovery of so many exo-planets, astronomers will now be spending a lot time staring at these other worlds in many different wavelengths of light (not just radio). This is how they hope to find bio-signatures.

But what about techno-signatures?

     Manasvi Lingam

Loeb and Lingam have explored a number of different ways we might find markers of another civilization. What, for example, would be the consequences of a civilization covering large portions of its planet in solar cells to generate power? Lingam and Loeb have shown that light reflected from such a planet would carry a “signal” of all that silicon on the planet’s surface, making it an intriguing example of a techno-signature.

• Ufologists and researchers have long suspected that the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt were alien beings or alien-human hybrids (“PreAdamites” or” Anunnaki”). They point to the Egyptian’s advanced scientific knowledge, Egyptian legends that “Gods” descended from the sky in eggs or boats, and Egyptian hieroglyphs that depict elongated headed people who stood much taller than ordinary people, and often had animal heads and features.

• Now, researchers have discovered an amazing “clue” supporting these claims of extraterrestrial influence in ancient Egypt. It appears that the geographic co-ordinates for the location of the Great Pyramid in Giza, which is 29.9792458°N, is the same number (without the decimal) as the speed of light – 299,792,458 meters per second.

• Of course, we did not know the exact speed of light until 1950. But could the ancient aliens have known thousands of years ago? Did they choose this location for the pyramid based on this calculation? Or is it just an amazing coincidence?

 

Researchers believe extraterrestrials left one vital clue in its design in Giza, Egypt – its co-ordinates.

The speed of light is 299,792,458 metres per second and the geographic co-ordinates for the Great Pyramid are 29.9792458°N.

However, humans could not measure the speed of light with this precision until 1950.

YouTube user Manu Seyfzadeh asks: “Is it possible that those who placed the great pyramid on the Giza plateau had an inkling of the speed of light to a degree of accuracy not possible without highly technical equipment?”

Another truther writes: “The speed of light in the metric system appears in the design and location of the Great Pyramid, when the decimal point is slid along the value.

“Aliens chose this location for a reason. This striking similarity is difficult to accept as a coincidence.

“There can be no doubt that it is a mathematically intelligent design associated with the stellar belief of its builders.”

• Dr. Norman Bergrun is a noted mechanical engineer who has worked for Ames Research Laboratory, National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, and Lockheed Martin. He went on to found Bergrun Engineering and Research.

• Bergrun is interviewed by Kerry Cassidy in June 2012 (see 24:51 minute video below) where he discusses his 1986 book, The Ringmakers of Saturn. Bergrun claims that he discovered intelligent “living spacecraft” growing enormously large and inhabiting the orbit of our solar system’s gas planets, using these planets’ energy to proliferate. Apparently the craft and their “exhaust” are so dense in number that they literally comprise much of the rings around Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune.

The Ringmakers of Saturn contains government pictures from the voyagers and other high-tech machines of these Spaceships that have been seen over Saturn’s rings. The book is currently selling for $1,500 used and $5,900 new on Amazon.com.

 

The video below is a clip of Project Camelot’s Kerry Cassidy interviewing Dr. Norman Bergrun about what’s really going on in space. A mechanical engineer, Dr. Bergrun has worked for Ames Research Laboratory, NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics), and Lockheed Missiles and Space Company, now known as Lockheed Martin. He then went on to found Bergrun Engineering and Research.

Coming from such a distinguished background, we can make several basic assumptions about him, not least of which is that he is highly intelligent. We can also assume that he knows and has worked with other intelligent and powerful people, and that he has had access to extremely sensitive data, which he himself makes clear in the below interview and in his book, The Ringmakers of Saturn.

What makes Norman’s story so intriguing is not only his impressive background, but the fact that hundreds of other scientists, politicians, and high-ranking military personnel have also shared information like this. He is just one of many insiders exposing the reality of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and extraterrestrial beings.

  Dr. Norman Bergrun

When former NASA astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor Dr. Brian O’Leary said that there is “abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time,” he wasn’t joking. There are now officially declassified documents that verify a long history of military encounters with these objects; objects which are performing maneuvers that no known aircraft can perform, all while traveling at speeds no known aircraft can travel. Not only that, but at the same time that pilots visually confirm their sightings, these objects are being tracked on both air and ground radar.

Dr. Jacques Vallee, notable for co-developing the first computerized mapping of Mars for NASA, and for his work at SRI International on the network information center for ARPANET, a precursor to the modern Internet, published a paper in the Journal of Scientific Exploration titled “Estimates of Optical Power Output in Six Cases Of Unexplained Aerial Objects With Defined Luminosity Characteristics” containing pictures taken by military pilots of the objects they encountered.

When entering into the vicinity of these objects, it’s not uncommon for critical electrical equipment to go ‘dead.’ UFOs have also been seen hovering around global nuclear missile facilities, at which time these facilities completely shut down and the nukes within go offline.

According to Herman Oberth, one of the founding fathers of rocketry and astronautics, “flying saucers are real and . . . they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.”

There are literally hundreds of shocking quotes from people of such reputable backgrounds, and thousands of documents pertaining to the UFO phenomenon, which lends even more credibility to the video below.

“What I found out is, these things inhabit Saturn, that’s where I first discovered them, and they’re proliferating.”

By the way, the ships Norman Speaks of around the rings of Saturn, they’re humungous.

His book, mentioned above, is currently is selling for approximately $2000 dollars on amazon. It has government pictures from the voyagers and other high-tech machines of the Spaceships that have been seen over Saturn’s rings.

Again, what makes this testimony so interesting is the fact that he is one of many high ranking whistleblowers in the field.
