Were Elephants Engineered As Living Metaphors of Grace And Patience?

Earth and human beings were most likely constructed as scientific experiments by extraterrestrial races, that is if you ascribe to the ancient astronaut theories of Erich von Däniken or Zecharia Sitchin. Given this, it’s possible that many of our planet’s species, living and extinct, were infused with unique sets of attributes meant to teach and inspire us.

At the birth of the great Earth experiment, aliens may have had justifiable fears around the dangers of what they were creating. They knew that the outcome would be unpredictable, and most likely, unimaginable. From experience, they recognized the dangers inherent in an experiment like this one. 

It stands to reason that our alien architects must have known that developing simpler, somewhat limited, and possibly conscious species in tandem with human beings might preserve their experiment and related research. 

“People are so difficult. Give me an elephant any day.”

It might be that animals, like elephants and birds, were created specifically to save us from ourselves. 

It all comes down to the core questions that may have been referenced at the start of the venture. If you and I were designing a new race or planetary culture today, we’d need to start with the basics. 

The initial, foundational questions might include:

  • How do we want our new living-Beings to look?
  • Which one should we create first?
  • What do we want them to feel?
  • How might they relate with themselves?
  • How do we want them to behave and interact?
  • How might they be able to liberate themselves?
  • How do they heal?
  • What tendencies should they have at conception?
  • What limits should we implement through their initial designs?
  • What failsafe termination material should we include in their DNA? 

Tardigrades and Elephants

Consider the Tardigrades, also known as “slow steppers” or “water bears.” They can be found thriving anywhere on the planet, from oceans to mountaintops to volcanos, and in every type of forest. I believe this creature was one of the primary failsafe living-Beings, explicitly created for the Earth experiment. 

Comprised of 1200 species, Tardigrada can live through any catastrophe, including extreme temperatures, air deprivation, radiation, dehydration, starvation, physical abuse, and space travel. Their fossils date back 530 million years. I believe our alien fore-parents wanted to make certain that even if we destroyed ourselves, Earth might remain a terrarium for millions of Tardigrades.

Hybrid Creatures of the Ancient World

Along this line of thinking, let’s look at the elephant. Its brain usually weighs around 11 pounds. This is 2-3X larger than the average human’s brain, and is also much larger and more functional than those of rhinos, hippos, and others. 

This graceful and friendly mammal has a long pregnancy, at almost 22 months. Some say this gives baby elephants enough time to build a strong connection within themselves. It also makes them more self-sufficient, less anxious, more creative, and less competitive. This length of time inside of their mothers might even make them more nurturing and peaceful. What better attributes for us to adore and worship?

Upon birth, elephants are immediately curious, exploratory, and creative, able to successfully utilize objects they’ve never seen. When elephants are reprimanded for doing something incorrectly, they can later be seen practicing the required exercises, in private, to improve their skills. 

An elephant’s trunk utilizes over 4000 muscles. Imagine the brain impulses required for this activity. Elephants can also recognize themselves in the mirror and with affection. This type of self-awareness can only be found in humans, apes, and dolphins.

The Stunning List of Elephant Attributes

Elephants have outstanding social abilities, as represented in their exemplary levels of gentility, empathy, and altruism. At the very least, we should be protecting this precious species from recognizing it as eternally sentient. 

African tribal leaders see the elephant as a conscious Chieftain of the forest. They respect the high level of consciousness that elephants embody. 

If you look at an elephant’s commitment to their family, you’ll find that they will do anything to protect their young. When baby elephant bulls and cows suffer from dehydration, mother elephants will quickly nourish and cool their calves with self-regurgitated water. They draw from within their stomachs to heal their children. 

An Elephant’s Spiritual Nature

In India, Thailand, and other Asian countries, elephants are revered as spiritual-Beings, here to remind us of our most beautiful qualities. They are seen as living embodiments (and reincarnations) of Ganesha, son of Parvati, the Goddess of the Mountains and wife to Lord Shiva. 

In spiritual circles, the elephant, as Ganesh, has features that are seen as symbolic:

  • The head represents the ability to acquire wisdom
  • The ears speak of patience and the ability to listen thoughtfully and empathically
  • The small eyes represent the ability to recognize the truth
  • The belly is metaphoric of how we should be able to digest all attributes and aspects of creation, the good, bad and indifferent
  • It is said that every obstacle and challenge in our lives can be extinguished by calling upon the love and light found through Ganesh

“If anyone wants to know what elephants are like, they are like people only more so.”

— Peter Corneille

Whether Asian or African (Savanna or Forest), all elephants share similar attributes and are potential extensions of kindred species. All factions of the two elephant trees appear to have cross-migrated, interbred with cousins, and enjoyed spreading their DNA throughout Europe, several islands, Asia, and beyond.

We are human beings living busy lives, on an increasingly complex and challenging planet. It’s difficult for us to fathom and fully comprehend how we came to exist and why we are here. Even though we imagine ourselves as the sole reason for this planet’s existence, we’re most likely only a tiny part of a much larger evolutionary plan.

When I look into the eyes of elephants, I see eternity. I can feel the spirit of the elephant, which feels representative of an incarnated Buddhist Lama. Feeling into her spirit, I sense thousands of years of meditation. 

The elephant also feels somewhat foreign to me, as if she were placed on Earth to be a helpful fish out of water, a reminder of the attributes nestled deep within our cores. 

Peacefulness, fearlessness, acceptance, and empathy: these are the primary attributes that seem to fall from view when we’re living strained and hectic lives.  As we embark on the next chapters in our lives, let’s look to the elephant and be grateful for what she teaches us. While we’re at it, let’s give a nod to her alien engineers.

“She owned the road as an elephant owns the veldt and like a big blue elephant moved with massive grace and dignity.”

— David Drake

Mammoths, Octopus, and Beyond!

Scientists are using mammoth DNA to create elephant hybrids. While Mammoths are the assumed ancestors of elephants, they are unique. In the coming years, we’ll learn how Mammoth’s are yet another unique example of alien bioengineering. 

With almost 5X the number of brain cells, each with a unique personality, and the ability to think through intricate puzzles don’t even get me started on the octopus! They may be the Earth's first fully conscious species.

Did President Eisenhower Meet With Aliens at Holloman Air Force Base?

In 1953, President Harry Truman gave up the oval office and passed the reins of power to his successor, President Dwight D. Eisenhower (Ike). It appears that Truman also gave Ike a pretty hefty file concerning a top-secret project called Majestic 12 that Truman established by Classified Executive Order. Majestic 12 consisted of a group of scientists, military personnel and other governmental professionals who all worked together to understand and communicate with UFOs and extraterrestrials (ETs).

President Eisenhower was extremely interested in UFOs and ETs: there is evidence that he met with ETs secretly, at least three times.

Once at Edwards Air Force Base (AFB) in California and twice at Holloman AFB in New Mexico. Since the Eisenhower meetings, other instances of UFOs landing at or near Holloman AFB have been reported.

1954 Eisenhower ET Meeting at Edwards AFB

President Eisenhower, who had been a five-star Army general, always had a “strong belief in life on other planets.” In February 1954, he was spending several days in Palm Springs on vacation. He disappeared for several hours one Saturday afternoon and even missed a scheduled public dinner. He was not seen again until late the following morning.

The press questioned Ike’s whereabouts, so the White House Press Secretary told them that Ike had chipped a tooth and gone to see a dentist. Even at that time, rumors were that he was visiting ETs at nearby Edwards AFB. The dentist’s story falls apart upon close inspection. Washington Post Staff Writer, Peter Carlson, denies the story of the chipped tooth and calls it a cover-up.

There Was No Dentist Visit

The Eisenhower Presidential Library has detailed reports of all Eisenhower’s medical and dental records. There is no reference to a broken or chipped tooth or dentist visit related to the Palm Springs visit. The Library also has copies of acknowledgments that were sent to everyone Eisenhower had contact with while in Palm Springs. There were records of people who met the airplane, people who sent flowers, the minister who gave the sermon at the Sunday service he attended, and others who played minor roles. But there is no proof of a note sent to a dentist. Years later, the dentist’s widow said she had no recollection of ever being told by her husband that he had done dental work on the President.

Corroborating Evidence of the ET Visit

William Cooper, who was on the Naval Intelligence briefing team and had access to classified documents, is a credible witness. His Review Of Those Documents revealed that ETs had had contact with Earth. They had warned that the Earth was “on a path of self-destruction” and they wanted to meet to help effectuate a long-lasting peace.

Meeting With Eisenhower

The first meeting with the aliens and President Eisenhower occurred at Edwards AFB in February 1954. Navy Commander Charles L. Suggs reported that his father had attended the meeting between Ike and the ETS. Eisenhower met with two Nordic appearings, blue-eyed ETs. A third one stood near the door as a lookout.

The discussions were polite. Eisenhower wanted to effectuate a treaty with the aliens but was unwilling to agree to their demand that we cease testing nuclear weapons. The aliens left with no treaty in place but returned the next year to Holloman AFB in New Mexico, not too far from the famous Roswell alien aircraft crash site, for a subsequent meeting with Eisenhower.

Gerald Light’s Letter

There is a corroborating story to the ET meeting with Ike at Edwards AFB. The accuracy of the story is difficult to confirm. A man named Gerald Light wrote a letter in April 1954 claiming to have been an eyewitness to the Edwards AFB meeting between Eisenhower and ETs. Light provided details such as watching Air Force officials studying five aircraft with the permission of their alien owners!

Some question the credibility of Light’s report since he was known to have a love of the occult and claimed to be clairvoyant, but others like Meade Layne, the former director of Borderland Sciences Research Foundation, confirms and believes Light did know first-hand what occurred.
