9.6 – DECODING THE COSMIC EGG (6.17.16)

SPACE CRAFT [7c]

Mali, West Africa. Here, hidden within the Cliff of Bandiagara, lie hundreds of villages occupied by the Dogon people. Believed to be the descendants of the Egyptians, archaeologists say the ancient nomadic tribe settled in this region around 1000 AD. Like many other ancient cultures, the creation story of the Dogon involves a Cosmic Egg.

“In West Africa, the Dogon creation myth is that the earliest divinity, Amma, the god of all things, took the form of an egg, and this is what unfolded to become creation. When the egg opened, it became a whirlwind and scattered its contents in all directions. This ultimately formed all of the galaxies and planets.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

The Dogon say that their gods, called the Nommo, came down to Earth in Cosmic Eggs…and when descending from the sky, they made the ground tremble.

“They said specifically – these eggs, they came from out there. They came from the vastness of the dark, the vastness of the cold. Well, what a more poetic way to describe space?”

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

“The Dogon said that they originated from the star Sirius B. What’s interesting about that is that we didn’t even discover Sirius B until 40 years after the Dogon published originally this story which is, of course, much more ancient. It suggests that the Cosmic Egg is a symbol for the craft of these extraterrestrials, who the Dogon said came to Earth from Sirius and influenced their civilization.”

(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

Could the Dogon have been given knowledge of Sirius B by extraterrestrials that came to Earth in egg-shaped crafts? Might the Cosmic Egg not only represent knowledge of how the Universe was formed, but the actual vehicles primitive people witnessed descending from the sky? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and suggest there is evidence that similar craft have even been witnessed in modern times.

April 24, 1964. 6:00pm. Socorro, New Mexico. While chasing a speeding car, police sergeant Lonnie Zamora hears a loud roar, and sees a flame in the sky to the southwest. Thinking a local dynamite shack might have exploded, Zamora breaks off the chase to investigate.

“He headed off to where he thought the explosion had come from. As he got to the site, he saw an egg-shaped object, standing on a tripod leg formation with two small creatures outside of it, in white overalls.”

(On the Trail of the Saucer Spies:
UFOs and Government Surveillance)

According to his account, as Zamora began to approach on foot, the creatures quickly jumped inside the egg-shaped vehicle, and it lifted off into the sky, in a column of fire.

“Of course, by the time backup arrived, the object had gone. But fortunately, the landing marks, where the craft had come down were still visible…clearly demonstrating that something had touched the ground and had left the ground again and took to the skies.”

Within days, a team of investigators from the FBI, the Air Force, and the nearby White Sands Missile Range examined the site. As soon as the media picked up the story, more witnesses came forward with similar descriptions.

“It made headlines around the world because J. Allen Hynek, who was then head of The Center for UFO Studies, and who had been working for the Air Force on the study of UFO investigations…he got in touch with Lonnie Zamora, and arranged to come to the ground.”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

“Dr. J. Allen Hynek was very much a skeptic of the UFO phenomenon and arguably, in some cases, even a debunker of the phenomenon. To a degree, that changed when he looked into the Zamora case and, ironically, he ultimately swung around and became a full-on believer in the UFO phenomenon.”

(Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind),
(Bloodline of the Gods), (The NASA Conspiracies),
(On the Trail of the Saucer Spies:
UFOs and Government Surveillance)

The incident immediately became a part of Project Blue Book, a special Air Force operation that began in 1952 to catalogue and investigate the sightings of unidentified flying objects.

“Although publicly Project Blue Book downplayed the entire UFO phenomenon, and certainly the Zamora case in particular, behind the scenes something very, very different was going on. Major Hector Quintanilla, the boss of Project Blue Book at the time, prepared a secret memo for the attention of the CIA, and essentially the memo said there was no doubt that Zamora had seen something unusual; something from somewhere else had touched down on our planet.”

“We have a shiny metallic object in the shape of an egg. There are multiple eyewitnesses that actually say they saw this and there are hundreds of witnesses who heard this roaring sound. We have landing traces. There’s so much evidence, it’s unbelievable.”

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

Statistics compiled between 1925 and 2014 by the National UFO Reporting Center show that there have been 4,455 sightings of egg-shaped craft in less than a century in the United States alone.

“These statistics only cover the sightings of egg-shaped craft in a very short period of time in the United States. If we extrapolate that and look at it as a global phenomenon, then there must be thousands of such sightings during this same period of time. This tells us that these ancient stories of egg-shaped craft descending from the skies are not only true, but that this has been going on for a very, very long time.”

(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

Could Sergeant Zamora have had a similar encounter to what the Dogon say their ancestors witnessed thousands of years ago? And if so, might this mean that the Cosmic Egg represented not just the beginning of the Universe, but also the craft used by the beings that gave our ancestors this knowledge? Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest there is even more to the meaning of this universal icon, and that additional clues can be found by examining a stone egg that bears another mysterious symbol.
