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
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 even 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 innovated specialized tools. And we began to paint. 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 thought.
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
We believe Graham is on to 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. They 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.
