5.18 – ALIEN CREATIONS (11.1.13)

ACUPUNCTURE [19e]

France, in the year, 1233 AD. Pope Gregory IX establishes the Inquisition, a group of institutions within the Roman Catholic Church charged with investigating and prosecuting heresy. During the next 500 years, the Inquisition spreads throughout Western Europe. Those suspected of sorcery or witchcraft are interrogated, tortured and executed. Most by being burned at the stake. And included as targets of this brutal and bloody purge are scientists, healers and other practitioners of the so-called black arts.

“There was a time in the Church when any type of progress was considered to be the work of the devil, and so things were done in the name of God in order to suppress new knowledge. Science was always something that was held back by the Church, out of fear of changing the status quo.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“Historically, the Catholic Church has always been threatened by knowledge especially about healing and medicine. One example is the invention of eyeglasses. The Catholic Church went ballistic with the invention of eyeglasses because with it came an idea, the idea that the human body is improvable.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

“During the Inquisitions, the Catholic Church took a full steam charge on squashing out a lot of these pagan ideas that were medical science, to them at the time revolutionary, but did not jive well with the Church.”

– Jason Martell
(Founder, AncientSchool),
(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

“One reason the Church launched the Inquisition was to eliminate the average person’s connection with this ancient indigenous knowledge that put power in the hands of the individual and took the power out of the hands of the Church.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

“Long before Christianity, you had healings, absolutely supernatural healings. So, people are afraid of it. The religious side especially afraid.”

     – Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

Was the Catholic Church’s attack on scientific knowledge a deliberate attempt to erase any connection between mankind and its relationship to otherworldly visitors? Visitors whose very existence would undermine the Church’s strongly held teaching that life on Earth was the only life that existed in the Universe? Did the Inquisition succeed in destroying centuries of advanced scientific and medical knowledge, knowledge we are only now starting to retrieve? Perhaps another clue can be found by studying a medical procedure that actually survived the Inquisition, one that has been practiced for thousands of years.

The Italian Alps. September 19, 1991. Here, high on a snow laden mountainside near the Austrian border, two hikers discover the mummified corpse of a man. Frozen in place for an estimated 5,000 years, the body, later nicknamed Otzi, is carefully examined and so well preserved that scientists are able to determine his age, how he died and even the contents of his final meal. But perhaps the most incredible discovery of all were the markings found along Otzi’s legs and back 50 geometric designs that correspond to those found in the science of acupuncture.

“Acupuncture is a long and well tested modality that moves energy through a kind of subway system in the body. They’re known as meridians with about a thousand treatment points. All the treatment points have names and many of them have references to stars and very interesting things that don’t seem to correlate with the body.”

Richard Leviton (Author, Welcome to Your New Designer Planet)

A medical therapy that targets an energy field that practitioners believe flows through the human body, acupuncture was originally believed to have been developed in China approximately 3,000 years ago. The tattoos found on the skin of this Bronze Age mummy suggest that acupuncture was not only practiced in Europe, but practiced centuries earlier than most archaeologists and historians had believed possible. But how? Perhaps the answer can be found by examining the ancient Chinese medical book called the Huangdi Neijing, the oldest text known to give a detailed description of acupuncture.

“The first medical book is wrote 2,500 years ago, is called Huangdi Nei Ching, The Yellow Emperors Classic Medicine. In this book is a whole system. It talk about all the channels, meridians, and the treatment methodology and the strategies.”

– Yi Qiao, LAc (Prof. of Oriental Medicine,
Emperor’s College)

According to Chinese mythology, one of the first practitioners of acupuncture was a physician named Bian Que, often depicted as a human-headed bird.

“Bian Que is a legendary example of a healer who used supernatural means in order to accomplish his treatments. Bian Que apparently could consume some herb, and once he ingested this substance, whatever it was, he could apparently see through walls, and see directly into the human body much like a CAT scan or an MRI.”

      – David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“And he was accredited with doing a double heart transplant on an emperor and another person where he switched their hearts. So, you have to wonder now, where did they even get this idea?”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“Bian Que is another of those extraordinary beings who’s described as half human and half bird. This puts him in the league with such figures as Thoth and other divine beings who are also half human and half bird and who delivered to humanity amazing knowledge, especially about medicine and human transformation.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

Could it be mere coincidence that the half human, half bird Chinese healer known as Bian Que closely resembles both the ancient Egyptian deity, Thoth, and the Indian god, Dhanvantari? Or is it possible, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists claim, that these ancient so-called gods were actually extraterrestrial beings? Beings in possession of highly advanced medical knowledge.

“I think acupuncture is one of these sciences which came from the gods and was given to our ancestors. And so even though we might think that acupuncture is specifically linked to a specific culture right now, I think in the past, this was actually information which existed throughout mankind.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“Medicine always came from a quote-unquote, “divine origin,” meaning that some type of a deity descended from the sky and gave this knowledge of healing people to those particular cultures. And now, why would all cultures all around the world speak of the exact same thing, that this knowledge was imparted to them by people descending from the sky?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Are Ancient Astronaut Theorists correct? Did extraterrestrial beings really give early man highly advanced medical knowledge about how to heal the human body? Knowledge that, with the exception of acupuncture, has been lost through the centuries? Perhaps proof can be found not in the carvings on the wall of a tomb or in the words of an ancient document, but the most unlikely of places, the cells of the human body.
