A full-color exploration of the links between ancient monuments on Earth, formations on Mars, sacred geometry, crop glyphs, and advanced physics * Details how exploratory probes sent to Mars in the 1970s triggered a plethora of anomalous events, particularly crop circles (glyphs), and how these events are messages from ET intelligence to help us send a human mission to Mars * Reveals how the anomalous Cydonia region of Mars fits the Golden Ratio Spiral and looks at links between Martian formations and Earth's ancient sites * Illustrated throughout with color photographs, maps, and diagrams In this full-color study based on 25 years of research, Mary Bennett explores the ancient and modern connections between Mars and Earth as well as how extraterrestrial intelligences are trying to assist us in constructing a viable spacecraft to take a human crew swiftly and safely to Mars. She details how exploratory probes sent to Mars in the 1970s triggered over three decades of anomalous yet scientifically validated events, including crop circles, or crop glyphs. She explains how these formations, along with related events, encode advanced engineering concepts that offer solutions to the fundamental problems presently hindering long-haul crewed spaceflight--whether to the Moon, Mars, or beyond. Looking at the red planet itself, the author reveals the scientifically verifiable evidence pointing to intelligent design on the surface of Mars, specifically in the Cydonia region, which fits the Golden Ratio Spiral. She looks at the covert links between the Martian formations and Earth's ancient sites, such as the Avebury landscape in England and the Giza Complex. She describes how agencies concerned with space travel have been quietly mirroring areas of Mars through construction projects here on Earth, revealing that many of the ET messages have already been partially decoded. Taking you from a complex on Mars to the Teotihuacan pyramids in Mexico, from phi ratios to the Pentagon, from the Great Pyramid to quantum computing, this exploration of the hidden influence of Mars shows that our abilities as a future space-faring species began in the ancient past and are now coming to fruition.

On June 24, 1947, Kenneth Arnold, a fire equipment salesman was flying his private plane on a business trip when his eye caught a flash in the morning sky. He turned to see a chain-like formation of bright, disc-shaped objects that were rapidly approaching Mt. Rainier. Arnold was an experienced and respected pilot, so it was difficult to doubt his word. Not surprisingly, no one was able to provide any.

Do UFOs really exist? Noted scientist Frank B. Salisbury, in collaboration with Joseph Junior Hicks, tries to answer this question by examining UFO data in the context of modern science. In the process he interviews countless witnesses who adamantly insist they saw a flying saucer or were abducted by aliens.

An exploration of how acceptance of panspermia will soon change history Mainstream consensus is that life arose on Earth spontaneously out of "primordial soup." Yet this theory, as well as the Darwinian "survival of the fittest" concept as it relates to major steps in evolution, has no scientific basis or proof. Where, then, did life come from? As the authors show, with conclusive scientific evidence, life came from space--a concept known as "panspermia." We humans, and all other life on Earth, evolved over millennia in response to viruses that arrived via comets, and we continue to do so. Exploring the philosophical, psychological, cultural, and environmental ramifications of the acceptance of panspermia, the authors show how the shift will be on par with the Copernican Revolution--when it was finally accepted that the Earth was not the center of the Universe. Explaining the origins of the panspermia theory in the work of the late Sir Fred Hoyle, the authors reveal the vast body of evidence that has accumulated over the past 4 decades in favor of the cosmic origins of life, including viral inserts found in DNA that have shaped our human genome over millions of years. They show how the tiniest of viruses, microscopic animals (tardigrades), and even seeds have been found to be natural cosmonauts. The authors also show how space-borne viruses play a crucial role in the positive evolution of life and that our entire existence on this planet is contingent on the continuing ingress of cosmic viruses. Revealing how panspermia offers answers to some of humanity's longstanding questions about the origins of life, the authors discuss the impact this shift in understanding will have on our relationship with the Earth and on culture, history, and religion. And perhaps the most dramatic ramification of all is that acceptance of panspermia means acceptance that Earth is not unique--that other life-filled planets exist and intelligent life is common in the Universe. Not only did we come from space, but we are not alone.

Long ago, the Galactic Federation sent the Atlans, a fierce group of humans from the Pleiades, to Earth to confront the newest colony of the combative ever-spreading alien race known as the Reptilians. The ensuing battle sank the continent of Lemuria and drove the Reptilians underground beneath the Indian subcontinent as well as to Antarctica. Able to shapeshift to appear human, the Reptilians then infiltrated the Atlantean civilization, abducting humans and creating Reptilian hybrids. As Len Kasten shows, this technique of infiltration and hybridization prior to an all-out attack has been the hallmark of Reptilian conquest throughout the galaxy.Chronicling the history of the Reptilian Empire's influence on Earth and their conquest of 21 star systems, Kasten reveals how the human race is enmeshed in a skillfully concealed plot to enslave humanity and exploit our planet's physical and biological resources.Revealing Hitler's pact with extraterrestrials and the Reptilian influence on the Nazi state, he shares new documents that disclose the rescue and rehabilitation of Nazi war criminals to assist in the Cold War, which then corrupted many U.S. government institutions. Focusing on crucial events in the decade after World War II, he examines the Reptilians' human allies, the Illuminati, who control the levers of financial, technological, and military power throughout the world through various secret societies.

Radu Cinamar rose to prominence after exposing a mysterious and unprecedented collaboration of American and Romanian military troops who conducted an expedition beneath the Romanian Sphinx in the Bucegi Mountains and uncovered the greatest archeological find of all time: a mysterious chamber some 50,000 years old containing holographic records of Earth's history, bio-resonance imaging technology, and three mysterious tunnels leading to the deepest secrets of the Inner Earth. Despite the political intrigue, turmoil and restriction around this great discovery, the leader of the expedition enabled Radu Cinamar to visit and explore these artifacts. Ever since, Radu's life has been a labyrinthine adventure of strange events, clandestine liaisons and extraordinary people and circumstances. In Transylvanian Moonrise, Radu is sought out by the mysterious Tibetan lama who orchestrated this discovery while working under an alias as Dr. Xien, a secret agent for the Chinese government. Radu's meeting with the lama is arranged by a mysterious alchemist whose ancestors have lived for hundreds of years by pursuing a secret tradition of the Great Work which prolongs life indefinitely until one can evolve beyond the physical plane. After the enigmatic lama reveals how he set the aforementioned events in motion in order to fix major imbalances in the Earth, he introduces Radu to a creature known as a yidam, an energetic and physical being created by a sand mandala ritual. After literally warping the space-time continuum, they take Radu on a mystical journey from Transylvania to the mysterious Land of the Gods in Tibet where he receives a secret initiation from Machandi, a blue goddess of ancient antiquity who is very much alive and is prepared to intervene on behalf of Mankind. Journey into this land of mystery and path of initiation and discover what really hides behind the veils of illusion known as the truth.

The Believer is the weird and chilling true story of Dr. John Mack. This eminent Harvard psychiatrist and Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer risked his career to investigate the phenomenon of human encounters with aliens and to give credibility to the stupefying tales shared by people who were utterly convinced they had happened. Nothing in Mack's four decades of psychiatry had prepared him for the otherworldly accounts of a cross-section of humanity including young children who reported being taken against their wills by alien beings. Over the course of his career his interest in alien abduction grew from curiosity to wonder, ultimately developing into a limitless, unwavering passion. Based on exclusive access to Mack's archives, journals, and psychiatric notes and interviews with his family and closest associates, The Believer reveals the life and work of a man who explored the deepest of scientific conundrums and further leads us to the hidden dimensions and alternate realities that captivated Mack until the end of his life.

Best-selling author Kevin Randle says about this book, "If you are planning to visit Roswell, this book tells you all you need to know about the UFO crash, the city and its character. It condenses the confusion of the case into an easily read book that will help anyone make the most of a visit to city and help understand what actually happened. A very nice addition to the Roswell literature." In this revised, updated edition of their wildly successful book, authors Noe Torres and E. J. Wilson again take readers on an unforgettable trip back in time to July 1947, when something from beyond Earth fell out of the sky in the desert north of Roswell, New Mexico. Using historical photographs, maps, and eyewitness testimony, the authors lead readers on a tour of all the places that still exist in Roswell where the world's most famous UFO case happened. Best-selling author Peter Robbins says, "The Ultimate Guide is deeply informative, well illustrated and consistently interesting. This is American history most Americans are completely unaware of and a public service to anyone who wants to walk the walk and experience the Roswell story via the actual locations where it occurred. Bravo Noe Torres and E.J. Wilson " "I read Ultimate Guide in one day. Could not put it down This is a wonderful addition to 'Roswellicana, ' and I congratulate you, Mr. Torres, on your first-rate research and scholarship," says reviewer John Steiger of Woodbridge, Virginia. Historian John LeMay, member of the board of directors for the Historical Society of Southeast New Mexico, says, "Prior to the publication of this book, few people knew exactly where to look for this spell-binding hidden history. Now, contained herein are the resources needed to visit all the major historical sites related to the alleged UFO crash."

Who are they really? You may be astounded to learn that UFOs and extraterrestrial beings have been visiting Earth regularly for ages-but not in the way you might think. And abductions are terrifyingly real. For a very long time, men and women have been confronted with nonhuman beings who physically abused them. Supported by previously overlooked traditional, religious, and spiritual knowledge, this first-of-its-kind study shows that abductions of human beings into UFOs are committed by beings connected to humankind. The philosophical significance of these discoveries is immense. These "space travelers," or visitors, or kidnappers conduct themselves as neutral observers of the progress of Earth's affairs. Even more surprising, they can be human beings like us or elementals (such as fairies and elves), and some of them live among us. His shocking, science-based analysis turns previous notions about UFOs and abductions on their head. The presence of aliens on Earth is now established-but not all aliens are extraterrestrials.

As humanity stands at the crossroads between the Fifth and the Sixth Worlds, American Indian wisdomkeepers have recognized signs that they must now speak their closely held knowledge about extraterrestrial contact, their original instructions from the Sky Elders. These ET relationships have existed since the beginning of time. They have been depicted on ancient rocks and hides, embedded in creation stories, choreographed in sacred dances, beaded on wampum belts, and continued to this day through rituals and the tobacco blessing. They show that with the vital support of our Star Ancestors, we can bring our planet back into balance with natural laws. Exploring the unifying "Sky Elder" theme found in virtually every Indian culture, Nancy Red Star shares her profound interviews with wisdomkeepers from several Native traditions, including Mayan elder and daykeeper Hunbatz Men, Stargate International CEO and UFO researcher Cecilia Dean, and Choctaw medicine man Sequoyah Trueblood, and offers their teachings on taking our rightful place among the peoples of the universe. Laying out a path for rebuilding our world, the Sky Elders' original instructions initiate us into the possibility of a coming time of peace. Inviting all peoples to realize their Star ancestry, the women and men of proud lineage and inspiring wisdom who share their experiences here offer us a survival plan for walking into the next world.

UFOs and Aliens have been reported throughout recorded time. Today they represent the greatest and longest lasting mystery known to mankind. Reports of UFO incidents vary from lights in the sky to abductions. The details are frequently terrifying, always baffling and occasionally hilarious. Current UFO investigations range from gathering hard evidence in the form of alleged alien artifacts, collecting witness stories through interview and hypnosis and studying a range of strange phenomena. This Pocket Essential gives details of the best known cases, the most incredible stories and the answers put forward to explain them. A Brief History of Bafflement covers the history of UFO events up to the modern era. From this point individual cases are recounted and analyzed. The alleged crash of an alien spacecraft at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 is considered as both the most historic event ever to occur on this planet and also as 'a boil on the ass of UFOlogy.' Other cases examine strange deaths, unexplained radar recordings, the scrambling of fighter aircraft to intercept UFOs and the bizarre messages channeled from aliens to humans. The book presents UFOlogy's most Astounding Tales and a series of Cautionary Tales which suggest that the answers we seek may be found in the least likely places. And the author shares one experience in which his accidental stumbling on a major case made him fear for his life...

A murmur is heard from the depths of time. Life and Earth are engaged in a dialog that has lasted for four billion years. Sometimes it's a whisper, sometimes a roar. One part sometimes gets the upper hand, dominates the discussion and sets the agenda. But mostly the two have some kind of mutual understanding, and the murmur goes on. Most of us don't listen. Nora does. She listens, and she tries to understand. Nora Noffke has focused her scientific career on the interaction between the living and the non-living. This is no mean task in an academic world where you are usually either this or that, such as either a biologist or a geologist. The amount of stuff you need to grasp is so large that it usually feels better to sit comfortably on one chair, rather than to risk falling between them. Geobiology is not for the faint of heart. Nora's focus is on that all-important biological substance mucus, or EPS (ext- cellular polymeric substance). EPS is the oil in the machinery, the freeway to travel for many small animals and protists, the coat of armour for others, the mortar in the brick wall for yet others. For microbes such as cyanobacteria it may be the world they built, the world they live, eat, fight, multiply, and die in.
