DATELINE: Sacred Stones
On the penultimate episode of season 13, Ancient Aliens took a hard look at sacred stones: the kind that crashed into Earth from somewhere in the cosmos.
Those craters may have housed all kinds of life-giving or altering microbes.
Mostly these holy rocks seem to arrive out of the asteroid belt beyond Mars, but Ancient Aliens show has other ideas: like they are the remnants of a planet that held life and was blown apart in a star war. If that sinister notion isn’t troubling enough, there were microscopic microbes on the remnants crashing into this planet.
That explains the mysterious sea creature called the octopus who seems to have no antecedent in the genetics of earthly creatures. It’s not a far cry from there to note that meteors may well be perfect shells to carry extraterrestrials around the universe.
Even better, NASA has a program to send our probes to other worlds on the back of a hollow meteor. Call it the Genesis Project, something right out of Star Trek.
Meteors can be our trans-receivers or information storage drives to go out boldly into the universe.
As often is the case, the theory has some truly frightful evidence: the Hypatia Stone came from out of this solar system and landed here with all kinds of superconductor qualities that cannot be natural.
Some of these rocks can levitate from their internal makeup of materials.
These visitors from another galaxy are called quasi-crystals and more than add up to ‘we are a Petrie dish’ for other creatures, made habitable by genetic engineering.
This season’s shows have been delightful.
