Hancock Has His Finger On Real Human Origins
By James Donahue
A story in The Scotsman a few years ago included an interview with author and lecturer Graham Hancock
who spent years researching human origins with an open mind.
In the article written by Anna Smyth, Hancock explains his theories of alien contact. He came to these
conclusions with the help of a host of natural mind-altering drugs found in plants growing all over the Earth.
He says he believes these drugs bring users into not only an altered state of consciousness, but actually
propel them spiritually into parallel universes where they have face-to-face contact with other life forms.
Hancock believes these drugs and the alien contact they brought about, had a lot to do with the sudden
advancement of the human race some 40,000 years ago. That was a time when primitive humanoids began drawing pictures of animals
on the walls of caves.
In the interview, Graham said the artwork on the cave walls was the thing that marked the point where
humans became suddenly different from the apes. "I found that it wasn’t the use of tools, as many people believe, but
abstract thought and the ability to manipulate symbols."
He says the cave paintings and writings that depict thought and visions are unique only to modern
humans. Primitive humanoids used tools and showed signs of societal living including the burial of the dead. But they left
no evidence that they could create signs and symbols in the form of art.
Something mysterious happened to propel the humanoid into what he is today. This is what Graham has
been searching for.
"Previously we were very uncreative and boring. We used the same tools continually without modifying
them. Then, suddenly, a light switched on in our brain. Fossils from 40,000 years ago show that we began to explore spirituality,
looked for signs of life after death, and made innovated specialized tools. And we began to paint pictures of the world around
us. In France, Italy and South Africa and all over the world, they’ve discovered incredibly accomplished paintings,
but no explanation for this burst of development," Graham said.
He said other academics share his opinion that hallucinogenic plants, like magic mushrooms, introduced
early humanoids to alien encounters that had a profound impact on them. The drugs opened their minds to spiritual and creative
Graham believes that when shamans and contemporary drug users experience these hallucinations, they
are actually observing a parallel universe. "The visions –be they of fairies, elves or aliens – are real, they
exist all the time, and they want to communicate with us," the story said.
"Think of it as thought the brain is like a TV receiver. In order to cope with everyday life, we have
to tune into ‘Channel Normal’ for the majority of the time. But if we retune our brains with these drugs, or alter
our state of consciousness through rhythmic dancing and drums, we can see images of the parallel dimensions."
Graham may be onto something important. While it is true, the altered state of consciousness, brought
on by the drugs, opens our third eye and allows us to see that parallel world beyond the veil, there may be more to the story.
It also appears true that aliens have had a lot to do with the sudden explosion of creative humans
some 40,000 years ago. But again, there may be more to this story.
What Graham overlooks is that there must have been some physical changes made in the genetic structure
of the humanoids to make it possible for man to no longer be an animal bound by the rules of nature. Were we visited by entities
that chose to help us along by tinkering with our genes?
All creatures from the Mother Earth are bound by those rules. With the gift of free will, we also
bear a great responsibility. Animals can do nothing to alter or destroy the environment from which they spring. Humans, on
the other hand, can reason, create, and go far beyond these bounds set for the other earth creatures. Throughout recorded
history we have possessed the capability of destroying our own world. This is why we have had a covenant with our creator.
This covenant was a strict promise that we would protect and love the Mother.
The creator, of course, is the very light of the living universe that exists within us. It is the
spark of god that burns in every human.
We seem to have made this covenant with the god, but how did this happen? Was it a promise to ourselves?
Was there alien visitation that genetically altered us? And if this happened, was our covenant or promise given to them? Did
we perceive them as gods?
That humans have broken the covenant and now threaten to kill the Earth is the bane that we all share
today. As our planet dies under our feet, it is unleashing storms and plagues that threaten to destroy us by the millions.
Unless we reverse course, the destruction only promises to worsen with each passing month and year.
