U-Predict - Those Pesky Skeletons.......

Numbers 13:31-33
Holy Bible - New International Version (NIV)
31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.” 32 And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. 33 We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”

Sometimes the job of an archaeologist or anthropologist is difficult at best. It’s not so much that they face an Indiana Jones-type adventure, but what they find is what is troubling; they find “stuff” that makes no sense. Modern science would laugh and does laugh at the description of the Nephilim-people who are giants who would look at a normal sized human as a grasshopper. But of course, many people truly believe that what is between the covers of the holy Bible is the true history of the planet. To confuse the whole issue, we have a whole bunch of pesky skeletons in the “stuff” that come from around the world. Some of these skeletons come from creatures who are 8 or 9 feet tall. (It is interesting to note, that that is the exact size of a Sasquatch or Bigfoot as described today by Bigfoot hunters.) When discovered, most of these skeletons are quickly whisk away to a museum for disposal in the basement under the category of “WTF”. At the other end of this conundrum, we have skeletons with oddly misshapen heads. Archaeologists and anthropologists have generally dismissed this as the practice of “cradleboarding”.   In this practice a child’s head was tied to a long board in hopes of changing the shape of the skull. However many of the skulls found could not have been shaped by this practice.

With the advance of the Internet, YouTube, and numerous picture sharing sites, unusual finds may make it to the attention of the press or curious fans of crypto-archaeology literally at the speed of light. The trip to the basement of long forgotten stuff is much, much harder today than ever before.  After seeing a number of stories in the regular press about both the finding of extremely tall or extremely misshapen skeletons inspired this edition of U-Predict.

The Reading Room included Ivy Lieberman, Joanne Matthews, Ramona McKee, ReeNee Cummins, and Dax Carlisle, with a new participant who signed in as Dayvd.   

Of course with the strange misshapen skulls, everyone’s eyes turned skyward. Was it possible that we had found the skeletons that would give us the long sought evidence that we are not alone in the universe and that we are and have been visited by extraterrestrials since the dawn of mankind? The cards pulled agreed that many of these skeletons represented the many different species who had visited this planet.  What was interesting was that the cards that were pulled agreed with the Bible story that these people had advanced knowledge. It is interesting to note that most esoteric literature refers to one or more masters who came to teach people the great truths of the universe. The cards pulled on this question, also described and that these people had to leave the planet. If one continues reading in the Bible in the book of numbers, the battles that were fought against and in fact defeated these learned giants are described. To go into another area of crypto-archaeology, that dealing with ancient astronauts, one finds plenty of references in ancient Hindu texts and in other texts that describe horrific battles.  The cards were fairly adamant that the race that had left the skeletons had had to leave the earth.

Of course, the other tantalizing possibility that was discussed was the idea that these people were our ancestors. Again most of the cards picked referenced the concept that there had been interbreeding between the species. We had learned enough from them to kick off our technology spurt.  Anita Perez mentioned the Starchild skull.   It's not only differently shaped, it is materially different. Trying to cut a sample of bone ruined diamond drills and saw blades.  Ivy Lieberman asked the interesting question if dating these skulls would give us a glimpse as to how and when our DNA was changed. Were the mother’s human, or were they also alien hybrids?

Another possibility that was discussed was the idea of inter-dimensionality.  Could the creatures who left the skeletons possibly have wandered here from another dimension, only to die here leaving there remains. One theory proposed by the reading room was that perhaps Bigfoot is the ancestor of the species that visited earth, and that its ability to hide all traces of its existence was a result of the knowledge of the species. The cards didn’t offer a strong positive on this theory.

As far as synchronistic cards, there was only one of the major arcana that stood out- and that was the card of the tower. The tower does match the story we were given on the individual questions. Something happened, and one or more races were forced to leave the earth. The cards also give is a tantalizing clue as to why these civilizations departed. We pulled a number of Kings of swords. While the King of swords can represent someone who is wise but speaks bluntly, when paired with the tower one would read a warlike tendency.

Another card which gave us a number of synchronicities was the sixes of all suits.  Numerologically, sixes are full of good intentions. They want to help. However, the flipside of six is to be paranoid and distrustful. Again a story as old as time, that there were battles between civilizations and civilizations were destroyed is supported by the pull of the cards.  In fact, in India they are finding ruins that are radioactive. This matches the final synchronistic card, 10’s of all suits. Because the 10 represents the end of an era, the end of a way of thinking, perhaps we are to see the archaeological breakthroughs that are too overwhelming to ignore. Do the the theories that we were taught as fact in school about our ancient history need to again be reduced to theories?  It certainly would encourage learning and curiosity if many theories were presented about the ancient world and civilizations and then let the youth do their own research and come to their own conclusions.  What are your conclusions?
