The Ancient Alien Question
By Rahasya Poe
In a previous issue of Lotus Guide I reviewed The Ancient Alien Question by Philip Coppens, who is a frequent guest on the popular TV series Ancient Aliens. I also did an interview with him on his latest book, The Lost Civilization Enigma, and that interview is on our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/LotusGuide). But before we get too deep here, I find it interesting to note how we tend to marginalize information such as this even though some surveys show that 70 percent of Americans believe in UFOs and alien civilizations. It’s been my experience that most of us think on one level and have deep-seated beliefs and indoctrination on a much deeper level that for the most part inhibits much of our thinking.
So let’s take a deep breath and “think” about this for a moment with an open mind. If you have read my book, To Believe or Not To Believe: The Social & Neurological Consequences of Belief Systems, you know that I devoted the last one-third of the book to researching ancient manuscripts that clearly point to the fact that we have been visited in the past by “those who came down from above.” No matter what ancient civilizations you pick, if they have a written or verbal tradition that dates from what most academics call “prehistory,” they all speak of the same thing and most have monuments and structures to prove it.
Years ago when I visited Machu Picchu, Nazca, and many other sites in Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Mexico, I quickly realized that no matter what the truth is, it was not what I was told in school. There are blocks of stone that are 6oo tons and more that have been quarried directly out of beds of granite and hauled miles up high into the mountains. There’s no way a band of natives quarried these stones, tied ropes on them, and pulled them up the mountains and then stacked them on top of each other for no apparent reason.
I have no way of knowing if you, the reader, have looked into this but the evidence is there and it’s clear … something is and has been going on that is a mystery. Was there once an advanced civilization here, as many researchers testify to? Are the thousands of sightings seen by millions of people worldwide actually happening? And why is it that the United States is one of the last remaining countries that not only won’t open its secret files, but it still testifies that there are no such files in existence. And here is the really intriguing question: If we are being visited, what do the visitors want?
I challenge anyone with average intelligence to look at the evidence and still not have questions. Our traditional organizations do not want you to know and world governments are deeply concerned about losing their power hold on the populace when this comes out. Listen to my interview with Phillip Coppens on YouTube and read his new book, which comes out in October 2012. And if you want a good resource book on this subject, order my book on Amazon if you need to, but it’s always better to support our local bookstores, such as Lyon Books in Chico. The reason for this short article is to prepare you for the January 2013 issue of Lotus Guide, in which we will be tackling this situation head-on with facts. I will start a blog on our website, so go there and tell of your experiences or questions.
