• On October 4 – 6, AlienCon 2019 was held in Dallas, Texas, and it was a sell-out. The curious, the true believers and the downright fanatics all gathered at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center to see their favorite UFO researchers and media personalities. Why was AlienCon such a success? Attendee Vanessa Pascher offered, “I think we’ve all had certain experiences, things that just make us wonder.” Have extraterrestrials influenced our past, and what might they mean to our future?

• AlienCon topics included “History of Quantum Consciousness”; “Megalithomania Around The World: Impossible Engineering and Secret Traditions of the Ancients”; “Secrets of a Government UFO Investigator” and “Do ‘Spacetime Portals’ Exist on Earth?” “I like the idea of just opening my mind to possibilities,” said attendee Erica Beach. “I want to expand mentally. I want to be challenged.” “(The speakers) aren’t saying this is one hundred percent fact. But at the same time, this is something you can think about and just make your own mind up.”

• History Channel’s hit television series ‘Ancient Aliens’ (starting its 14th season) was well-represented by co-executive producer Giorgio Tsoukalos, David H. Childress, Nick Pope, Travis Taylor and others who claim that human history has indeed been influenced by contact with extraterrestrial life. Aliens might even be our progenitors, tampering with native animal DNA or outright engineering us for reasons baneful or benevolent, depending on one’s point of view. The show’s alternative interpretation of science and history draws some ire from detractors, such as the Smithsonian, Forbes, the New York Times. As Tsoukalos told a crowded convention hall in a panel discussion, many of the things that our ancestors thought were magic of the gods, are simply an advanced extraterrestrial technology.

• Robert Zamora drove eight hours from Brownsville to attend the conference with his wife, son and daughter. Zamora’s love of UFOs began when a boyhood friend would lend him UFO magazines. “Mathematically speaking, there’s a big possibility that we’re not alone in this universe,” said Zamora. “[T]here has to be life out there. It just might not be what we think of life in normal forms like ours.”

• Bill Genzer and his wife, Cat, won the convention’s costume contest by portraying a wild-haired Giorgio Tsoukalos and his extraterrestrial “girlfriend.” They beat out memory-erasing Men in Black, proton pack-wielding Ghostbusters, ancient Egyptians and a whole Star Wars cantina of extraterrestrial life. Said Cat Genzer, “Mainstream archaeology has said civilization is only 3,000 years old, but what about all of these things that (indicate) that it’s far, far older? … I think it’s time that we started kind of rewriting the history of man.”

• Kiko Salazar and his wife, Christina, came all the way from Brazil, Indiana to attend, and paid $1,300 each for a “Galactic Pass,” which provided meet-and-greets with celebrity guests and a special set of other perks and experiences, including a private panel with headlining guests. “Ten years ago, you wouldn’t have even had a convention like this,” said Salazar. “Being… with like-minded people, it’s just awesome. [I]t’s something we’ll (continue to) do.” Salazar says that he once saw a black diamond-shaped UFO with “big, white lights” silently crossing the Arizona sky in 2001.

• There has been plenty of interest in “unidentified aerial phenomena,” or UAPs, in the mainstream of late, with the US Navy videos encountering strange objects and the existence of the U.S. government investigation of UFOs under the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. That program’s benefactor, Robert Bigelow told “60 Minutes” in May 2017 that he was absolutely convinced” aliens exist – and that they have come here. These events were frequently mentioned in presentations throughout the weekend.

• Perhaps the most important word to those in current UFO culture is… disclosure. They have the fervent hope that the U.S government and others finally will admit we live in a world in which aliens exist, that we will learn the true nature of our relationship to them, and that the resulting flood of new technologies will help us accomplish tasks from cleaning the oceans to uplifting humanity to its rightful place among the stars. Executive director of Paradigm Research Group, Stephen Bassett told convention-goers that he was expecting announcements to come from major government entities in a relatively few months. “The post-disclosure world is ahead of us,” said Bassett, “… three, four, five, six, seven years from now.”

• Pat Martin of Houston said she decided at age 73 it was time to take a chance, go to a convention, and absorb as much as she could. Martin believes the government “knows something.” She said the entire experience had been well worth it, opening her mind to new possibilities. “There probably are aliens here doing something,” Martin said with a sly smile. “They may be at this convention, who knows?”

 

Brilee Elliott believes in aliens.

“We have this whole universe,” 10-year-old Brilee, of Ohio, observed at AlienCon in Dallas earlier in October. “We just can’t be the only ones.”

In that opinion, she is not alone.

Elliott, her aunt Erica Beach, uncle Derek Watson and hundreds of others crowded into Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center for a massive gathering of the curious, true believers and downright fanatics.

AlienCon is ‘More than just cool’

Elliott has given the problem of aliens much consideration.
After coming to realize that aliens were “more than just cool,” she started “thinking about (them) when I was supposed to be in bed.”

She now openly ponders — at her relatively tender age — time-tested enigmas, such as how the ancient Egyptian constructed the pyramids.

“How could do the Egyptians do that without any help?” Elliott asked, echoing an argument some have made for decades on end.

Cue the familiar image of Ancient Aliens’ co-executive producer Giorgio Tsoukalos, whose tremendous mane of hair and unwavering assertion of “Aliens” has become an internet image meme with a seemingly limitless lifespan.

That level of recognition has turned Tsoukalos, along with other “Ancient Aliens” contributors such as “real-life Indiana Jones” David H. Childress, former U.K. Ministry of Defense UFO investigator Nick Pope, engineer/physicist Travis Taylor and a slew of others into virtual rock stars in the outré world of paranormal TV.

Such star-power ensured that AlienCon was a sell-out on an early fall Saturday, and remained crowded through the weekend.

Like many attending, Vanessa Pascher, waiting for a panel by well-known UFO researcher Stephen Bassett to start, said that the show is a “guilty pleasure.”

“But in a sense, I think we’ve all had certain experiences, things that just make us wonder,” she said, adding that she’s had her own share of anomalous experiences that have made her look at the sky and wonder.

Instead, it’s to what extent could such beings have influenced us in the past, and what might they mean to our future.

Such a stance is perhaps natural given the event’s tie-in to the History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” program, which carries a thesis that human history has been in ways covert and gross influenced by contact with extraterrestrial life.

At the extreme end, the program entertains the notion that aliens might even be our progenitors, tampering with native animal DNA or outright engineering us for reasons baneful or benevolent, depending on one’s pet theory.
The show attempts to present a sort of puzzle-piece narrative.

Under that umbrella, pretty much anything is fair game, from mysterious Hudson Valley-area structures that imply ancient druids may have traveled to New England, to speculation that the octopus may have come to Earth from the stars, to the implications of liquid water found inside a meteorite, to in-depth examinations of how an alien ship might travel among the stars.

Antarctic Mountain Rumoured to be ‘Earth’s Oldest Pyramid’ Built By Aliens

March 9, 2019                  (sputniknews.com)

• Citing the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens TV show, conspiracy theorists and UFO hunters claim that the oldest pyramids in existence may have been erected by extraterrestrials amid the frozen wastes of Antarctica. One Antarctic geological feature in particular draws the attention of conspiracy theorists: a “pyramid-like structure” located near the Shackleton mountain range, whose “four steep sides” make it look somewhat like the Great Pyramid of Giza.

• American author David Childress speculated that this so called “Shackleton pyramid” might be “the oldest of its kind” on the planet. “If this gigantic pyramid in Antarctica is an artificial structure, it would probably be the oldest pyramid on the planet and in fact it might be the master pyramid that all the other pyramids on planet Earth were designed to look like,” he said.

• Dr Michael Salla, an ET research expert, author of the “Exopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence” (and founder of the Exopolitics Institute, the umbrella organization for ExoNews.org) thinks that this rocky formation may be merely one node in a global network of power-generating pyramids strategically places around Earth. “One of the theories is that pyramids are power generators and so, if you have these pyramids strategically placed around the world generating a charge, it’s possible to create a general standing wave around the world that is a wireless transmission of energy,” Dr Salla noted.

• However, Dr Mitch Darcy, a geologist at the German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam, is sticking to mainstream geology’s position that these pyramids are just natural mountain peaks exposed above the ice. “[I]t’s a coincidence that this particular peak has that shape. By definition, it is a ‘nunatak’, which is simply a peak of rock sticking out above a glacier or an ice sheet. This one has the shape of a pyramid, but that doesn’t make it a human construction,” Darcy said.

 

While some conspiracy theorists and UFO hunters explore theories about aliens building pyramids in ancient Egypt and Mesoamerica, others now claim that the oldest pyramids in existence may have been erected by extraterrestrials amid the frozen wastes of Antarctica, the Daily Express reports citing the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens TV show.

As the newspaper notes, one Antarctic geological feature in particular draws the attention of conspiracy theorists: a “pyramid-like structure” located near the Shackleton mountain range, whose “four steep sides” make it look somewhat like the Great Pyramid of Giza.

David Childress, an American author and the owner of Adventures Unlimited Press, even speculated that this so called “Shackleton pyramid” might be “the oldest of its kind” on the planet.

“If this gigantic pyramid in Antarctica is an artificial structure, it would probably be the oldest pyramid on the planet and in fact it might be the master pyramid that all the other pyramids on planet Earth were designed to look like,” he said.
Dr Michael Salla, an ET research expert and author of the “Exopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence”, even ventured a guess that this rocky formation may be merely one node in a “global network of power-generating pyramids strategically places around Earth”.

Da Vinci’s Forbidden Codes Link Him to Aliens

by Greg O’Shalae               July 1, 2018              (hiddenremote.com)

• A recent episode of the History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” presented a side of Leonardo da Vinci (pictured above), the illegitimate son of a nobleman and a maid who became one of the world’s greatest inventors, painters, and thinkers, that few have considered. What if de Vinci was given knowledge or an IQ boost from an encounter with extraterrestrial beings?

• The only period in his lifetime when da Vinci disappears from the record is between 1476-1478. Just before this time he writes in his journal of being drawn to a cave while hiking when he was 24 years old. He relates that he was pulled into the cave by the desire to experience the wonder inside. Ancient astronaut theorists suggest that it was here that he interacted with aliens who revealed to him the future.

• During his life, da Vinci was scrutinized by the Roman Catholic church because of his unorthodox philosophical tastes. Consequently, he had to hide information in his paintings to avoid being labeled a heretic. Some example of these may include:

“The Virgin of the Rocks” – The painting (see below) depicts toddlers Jesus and John the Baptist in a rocky place reminiscent of the cave that da Vinci visited. They are under the protective watch of Virgin Mary and the angel Uriel, who is actually an extraterrestrial from the heavens.

“Adoration of the Magi” – Analysis in 2002 on da Vinci’s painting “Adoration of the Magi” (see below) using a technique called thermographics revealed layers of paint that were not painted by the original artist. Apparently da Vinci’s original contained a Pagan temple which was painted over. In the background is a temple with the lotus flower, the lotus ostensibly referring to alien beings.

“Salvator Mundi” – In his portrait of Salvator Mundi, da Vinci depicts his subject holding a Hindu/Buddhist Chintamani stone with three white dots that align to the stars of the Orion constellation.

“John the Baptist” – In this painting, St. John pointing upward with a knowing look on his face (see below), as if to point to ‘another realm’. Also, if you mirror the right side of John’s face in the painting it resembles a gray alien.

 

Sometimes Ancient Aliens makes a compelling case. Other times the case is not as iron clad. This is one of those in between cases. It takes a bit of faith and confidence in the overall plot to see the entire picture.

Some ancient astronaut theorists may not know all the details to this particular theory. It’s up to viewer discretion to determine if Leonardo da Vinci is linked to aliens. What’s the saying? “I want to believe.”

Dan Brown missed everything.

The Virgin of the Rocks

Eat your heart out Dan Brown. “The Da Vinci Code” may have unveiled some interesting links between religion, cover ups, secret societies, and Renaissance artwork, but it missed everything important. Some researchers claim there are even MORE hidden message found in da Vinci’s work. Furthermore, there is a likely extraterrestrial influence.

It goes without saying that Leonardo da Vinci (LDV) was ahead of his time. The prodigious volume of his ouevre makes it difficult to fully explore in a lifetime. His notebooks and manuscripts remain, however, and contain everything from construction plans for tanks and helicopters to wild inventions that have come into reality centuries later.

His impact is so profound that his “Salvator Mundi” was bought by a Saudi Prince for a new museum in Abu Dhabi for $400 million. During his life, LDV was scrutinized by the Roman Catholic church because of an appearance of wide-ranging philosophical tastes. Consequently, he had to hide information in his paintings to avoid being labeled a heretic.

                “Adoration of the Magi”

Leonardo da Vinci disappears.

Between the years 1476-1478, LDV disappeared from records. His life did not otherwise have gaps in terms of coverage. Just before this time, however, he had an interesting experience. One of the autobiographical anecdotes from his journal tells the story of being drawn to a cave while hiking. He was pulled in by the desire to experience the wonder inside. Some of the ancient astronaut theorists suggest that his experience inside the cave permitted him to see the future, and it is likely related to interaction with aliens.

“Adoration of the Magi”

Using a technique called thermographics, LDV’s “Adoration of the Magi” was analyzed in 2002 in Florence, Italy. An under-drawing was discovered inside the painting of the three wise men visiting the infant Jesus. The analysis, however, showed much more than what is visible to the naked eye.

        “Salvator Mundi”

As it turns out, there were layers of paint, some additions, that were not painted by the original artist. One such detail painted over was of a Pagan temple, would would have been a problem at the time with the prevailing church. In fact, one of the background drawings is a temple with the lotus flower (i.e. the flower of life). Some of the ancient astronaut theorists contend LDV was obsessed with the lotus flower, which may indicate his connection to potential alien contact.
