"And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire unfolding itself, and a brightness was about it out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass." --Ezekiel 1:4-7(Christianity)
Ezekiel witnessed four creatures descend from the skies in wheels spinning within wheels to deliver unto him what he considered a divine message. They could quickly fly in any direction without turning and the sound of their flight was like thunder.
"The aircraft which can go by its own force like a bird - on the earth or water or through the air - is called a Vimana. That which can travel in the sky from place to place is called a Vimana by the sage of old." Samaranga Sutadhara (Hinduism)
Flying craft described in Hindu texts had a fiery glow, precise controls, could engage in air combat, and sounded like rolling thunder.
What do these ancient religious texts describe and who are the ancient sages of old giving men divine revelations? Why, if Heaven is not an actual physical place, do we look to the skies to contact our gods? Who really is your god?
The Malta Mystery
Different religions have left indelible questions in our minds: who is god and how did we
receive his messages? Our ancestors claimed to have had a direct link to the divine much more so than we do in modern times, including inspiration from, communication with, and laws written by those from the heavens. Other than scriptures, there surely must be evidence of man's interactions with gods or angels.
The answer to our questions may be buried in the caves of Malta as well as other places around the planet. The strangest and most interesting indicator and evidence that has been uncovered is that ordinary humans and some other creatures seem to have been buried at the same time, in the same strangely constructed cave tombs. The distinctive difference between these two kinds of life forms is the structure of the skeletons, specifically the elongated skulls of the mystery creatures.
We ask the question, who would bury their loved ones with creatures that they did not like or did not know? Currently, a number of ancient archeologists are suggesting that we are them that we were made in the image of the "gods" the ancients saw in the sky.
Previously we spoke of ancient civilizations with holy places that are so perfectly aligned with the stars and their proportions so precise that even with the technology of today we could not easily recreate them. Yet during these ancient times, around the world tons of huge rocks were put in to place by people who saw things in the sky and created stairs to the heavens to commune with the gods.
We are going to continue with the idea in mind that we may actually find the gods or angels and they may indeed be from the heavens, but not from the hereafter, but an actual place in our universe, and that the phenomenon of UFOs, crop circles, personal encounters, and the architecture of ancient temples are indicators that the gods are out there. Are you ready to meet your creators?
Yet there are skeptics who prefer to see the elongated skulls in Malta as mere artifacts of ancient human cosmetic practices. Intentional skull deformation is a behavior that has been observed in multiple cultures throughout the world, the oldest of which dates back to the Neolithic period (approximately 10,000 years ago).
Even if that is the case, there's still something fascinating about the skulls' burial site and this begs the question. Why would so many cultures across vast distances mutilate their heads in this same fashion if not to strive to appear more like the gods that they met when the sky opened and spinning wheels with creatures came down from the sky like in the book of Ezekiel?
Some of the world's greatest minds, including Stephen Hawking, have said we should not attempt to contact beings from space; we may not like what we get. We kill, dominate, and manipulate all the creatures we encounter, but what if we aren't the top of the pyramid?
Randy D. Allen, a biologist at Oklahoma State University posited the following about extraterrestrial intelligence:
"No more inefficient metabolism requiring huge energy input, no chemically derived bodies to wear out, no reproduction, no death, no taxes. Just supermassively parallel collective consciousness with unlimited capabilities. Perhaps, through super symmetry or entanglement, they can 'see' or 'feel' the entire universe. Maybe, they've gained the ability to manipulate elementary particles and can control its evolution and its fate. They would have become, by any human definition, Gods."--------
There are those who say, "the hypothetical of intelligent alien life is a philosophical exercise and a reflection of our own cultures. When we imagine violent alien invaders, we tacitly accept that a culture driven by violence and conquest is even capable of reaching the technological heights necessary to traverse the stars. In these scenarios, we also project the sad human tendency to see the outsider as an inherent threat. Fear of alien invaders comes from the same place as racism, homophobia, and xenophobia."
If humans are indeed not the most technologically or intellectually advanced species in the universe, we can use the hypothetical super-advanced aliens as a goal for ourselves, as perhaps our ancestors did in crafting advanced architecture and religion. For the sake of our own survival as a species, the enlightenment of peace, curiosity, and cooperation necessary to colonize other worlds might be the only sane path. Notwithstanding, we just might, with enlightenment, during our search of the universe, find God.
