So you think you
know about the past?
FAINT HEARTS. There's only ever been one spectacular tomb find in Egypt, King Tut's. Wrong. In 1940, as Europe was dissolving under the assaults of Hitler, a French archaeologist made the greatest find since Howard Carter, an intact pharaonic tomb.
But the spectacular discovery got shelved, literally, because the French archaeologist had to go back to France to look after his family during the German invasion. The tomb was summarily emptied of its contents and put in storage in Cairo. End of story.
The point? There's such a thing as a bad time for a major discovery. I think we're there again. Once again the world is dissolving, this time under the hand of Obama, which means, probably, that no one is prepared for the email I got from my friend Lloyd Pye (1, 2) last week. Not even me.
This is to let good friends know we've had a MAJOR breakthrough with the Starchild's DNA analysis. Our geneticist finally sequenced some mitochondrial DNA from it, and the results were staggering! There can be NO doubt now that the Starchild is NOT a human-alien hybrid, it is a PURE alien! (Explained in a recent "Byte of Pye" included below.)
The details are in a report now posted on the Starchild website (link below). Fair warning that it's written to a higher level of scientific terminology than I usually use because it is a formal kind of report about the discovery. You're more than intelligent enough to understand it, I just wanted to mention that it's not written in my usual style. It's 5,000 words and takes about 20 minutes for an average reader. Here is the link: http://www.starchildproject.com/DNA2011March.htm
I congratulated him and commended his bravery and monastic dedication, but I didn't post, did I?
I still don't know if he's right or wrong, but that shouldn't matter. He's invested an adult liftetime of penury in pursuit of an outcome that just might be world-changing. At the very least, he's been absolutely confirmed in his conviction that this is a mystery which the scientific establishment has done everything possible to ignore and which might be legitimate and earthshaking.
P.S. Typically, Lloyd has responded promptly and graciously. He says:
Thanks, [IP], for entering the fray.
I really like your analogy about the "wrong time" discovery. However, there is never really a "good" time for something like this, so I don't worry too much about the timing. If this had come out at the peak of the housing bubble, when everything was hunky-dory, it still would be met with as much silence as possible, for as long as possible. This is just NOT the kind of news any mainstream organization--science, media, religion, government--will welcome with open arms. It means nothing but trouble for them, which they clearly understand, and so silence will prevail everywhere outside the internet.
Eventually we'll break through with it. Someone in the mainstream will decide to step over the line and make it a news item, however small, and, like a pebble thrown into a pond, ripples will move outward. I mean, let's face it, this report, and the newly updated eBook (you should have a copy of that, and if you don't, let me know so I can send it to you), are two very large rocks tossed into the pond.
Ah. But he's reminding us that we ARE the Internet. PLUNK. PLUNK. The rocks are now in the pond.
