8.3 – Aliens & Robots (8.7.15)

“In the 21st-century, the robot will take the place which slave labor occupied in ancient civilization.”

– Nikola Tesla

Incredible strength…superior intelligence…and even the ability to reproduce. In the 21st-century, robots are being programmed to do everything from performing surgery on humans – to exploring other planets. And humanoid robots are rapidly reaching a level of sophistication that was thought to exist only in science fiction. But what are the implications of creating robots that are increasingly intelligent and independent? Is the obsession with creating counterfeit humans really pointing the way to mankind’s future…or to its past? Greek stories dating to 2,000 BC tell of the god Hephaestus creating robots to build weapons, as a well as the bronze giant Talos. In Egypt, the pyramid texts say that the god Osiris was dismembered, then reassembled and brought back to life just like a machine. If sophisticated robots really did exist in the ancient world – what function did they serve? Who built them? And what happened to them? [4]

INTRODUCTION [4a]

Incredible strength…

“You had the creation of a superhuman that was indestructible, invincible.”

Richard Rader, Ph.D.
(Lecturer, UCLA Dept of Classics/UCSB Dept of Classics),
(Author, Theology and Existentialism in Aeschylus)

…Superior intelligence…

“The ultimate goal is to become an immortal god.”

Mark Dice
(Author, Big Brother: The Orwellian Nightmare Come True)

…And the ability to reproduce…

“You have a robotic consciousness that has become something we would think of as a person.”

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

But is this obsession with creating counterfeit humans really pointing the way to mankind’s future or to its past?

“Another civilization has done the same thing hundreds of thousands of years before us.”

Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“We may be living in a Universe where the real intelligences out there are robots.”

Nick Pope (British Ministry of Defense, 1985-2006),
(Author, Open Skies, Closed Minds)

Since the dawn of civilization, mankind has credited its origins to gods and other visitors from the stars. What if it were true? Did extraterrestrial beings really help to shape our history? And if so, could there be a connection between aliens and robots?
