“Our feet are planted in the real world, but we dance with angels and ghosts.”

– John Cameron Mitchell

Throughout the world, ancient rites and rituals are believed to connect humans to another dimension. But, just who-or-what are we communicating with? Could today’s rituals, such as festivals, coronations, and funerals, be based on early man’s attempt to emulate Ancient Alien visitors? If so, what other ancient rituals might find their roots in a kingdom – not of this world? [6]

INTRODUCTION [6a]

A 1,000-year-old temple built to commemorate a visitation by a god. A coronation stone believed to be a gateway to the Heavens. And strange chants designed for communicating with otherworldly beings.

“To enter ritual allows us to reenter a space where the gods are alive, and allow us to spend time with them.”

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

“You are going into a frequency and harmony to actually talk directly with those beings that are supernatural.”

Clifford Mahooty (Zuni Tribal Elder)

Throughout the world, ancient rites and rituals connect us to another dimension. But just who or what are we communicating with?

“All over the world, ancient people and modern people are using rituals to connect them with gods, yet these gods may well be Ancient Astronauts.”

   – David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Millions of people around the world believe we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings. What if it were true? Did Ancient Aliens really help to shape our history? And, if so, might we find the evidence in our most sacred rituals?
