One of the main pillars of the ancient astronaut theory is that ancient beings may have tampered with human and other lifeforms’ DNA. Numerous ancient carvings appear to depict the double helix motif of DNA, prompting theorists to speculate: What if extraterrestrial beings assisted human evolution? Maybe they even made hybrids with their own DNA?
Another theory is that ancient societies were aware of a Third Eye in the pituitary gland of the brain. The symbolism of the pine cone-shaped gland appear to be linked with weird creatures that appear to be altering the Tree of Life. Some see the tree as a representation of DNA and human vertebrae.
There are many unanswered questions. What is the relationship between the Third Eye and the DNA? Did these ancient creatures have advanced knowledge of how to alter the DNA structure with greater consciousness? To be sure, that does seem ridiculous. Some scientists today, though, appear to be reaching similar conclusions.
Before delving into these relatively fresh discoveries, keep in mind that very little is known for certain about the overwhelming bulk of DNA. In 2018, they found an altogether new strange twisted type of DNA, the i-motif, a four-stranded knot of genetic code.
The dark DNA
Around the same time, scientists released their discoveries on ‘dark matter’ DNA, which consists of unexplained sequences that are almost identical in all vertebrates, including humans, mice, and chickens. The Dark DNA is considered to be essential to life, but scientists don’t know actually how does it work and how it formed and evolved in the distant past. In reality, we have no idea what 98 percent of our DNA does, but gradually we are learning that it isn’t “junk” after all.
To date, scientists still don’t know much about our genetic DNA, they don’t know exactly what causes our consciousness. Simultaneously, several investigations appear to indicate that intracellular, environmental, and energetic factors may alter DNA. The field of epigenetics looks at how factors other than our genetic code alone change who and what we are.
According to some studies, we may modify our DNA by our intentions, thoughts, and emotions. Maintaining positive thinking and efficiently handling stress can help us retain our emotional well-being, as well as our genetic DNA.
In contrast, a study of 11,500 women at high risk of depression in the United Kingdom discovered that mitochondrial DNA and telomere length were altered.
According to Science Alert, the most noteworthy finding was that women with stress-related depression, sadness associated with childhood trauma such as sexual abuse had more mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) than their counterparts. Mitochondria are the ‘powerhouse organelles’ inside cells that release energy to the rest of the cell from food, and an increase in mitochondrial DNA prompted the researchers to assume that their cells’ energy requirements had changed in response to stress.
These alterations in DNA structure appear to hasten the ageing process. After reviewing their findings, the researchers discovered that women suffering from stress-related depression had shorter telomeres than healthy women. Telomeres are the caps at the ends of our chromosomes that normally shrink as we age, and the researchers wondered if stress had accelerated this process.
Other research suggests that meditation and yoga can aid in the maintenance of telomeres. Going even further, some scientists think that our DNA is ultimately linked to our higher spiritual self. According to ancient astronaut theories, we are already approaching the level of reasoning of the ancients. If this sounds strange to you, you might not want to continue since things are going to become weirder.
Is there such a thing as phantom DNA?
In 1995, Vladimir Poponin, a Russian quantum scientist, published a mind-boggling study dubbed “The DNA Phantom Effect”. According to that study they reported a series of tests indicating that human DNA directly influences the physical world via what they claimed was a new field of energy linking the two. The researchers discovered that when photons of light were present in the presence of live DNA, they organised themselves differently.
The DNA definitely had a direct impact on the photons, as though moulding them into regular patterns with an unseen power. This is significant since there is nothing in traditional physics that would allow for this outcome. Nonetheless, in this controlled environment, DNA the substance that makes humans up was observed and recorded to have a direct influence on the quantum stuff that makes up our world.
Another experiment conducted by the US Army in 1993 examined how DNA samples reacted to emotions from human donors. The DNA samples were under observation while the donors were watching films in another room. To say, the individual’s emotions had an effect on the DNA, no matter how far away the person was from the DNA sample. It appears to be an instance of quantum entanglement.
When the donor experienced emotional ‘peaks’ and ‘dips,’ his cells and DNA displayed a strong electrical reaction at the same moment. Despite the fact that the donor was separated for hundreds of feet away from his own DNA sample, the DNA behaved as if it were still physically attached to his body. The question is, why? What could be the reason behind this type of strange synchronization between the donor and his separated DNA sample.
To make things even strange, when a person was 350 kilometres away, his DNA sample still responded at the same time. It seems, the two were linked by an unexplained field of energy ― the energy that has no proper scientific explanation to this day.
When the donor had an emotional experience, the DNA in sample reacted as if it was still in some way attached to the donor’s body. From this perspective, as Dr. Jeffrey Thompson, a colleague of Cleve Backster, so eloquently states: “There is no location where one’s body truly stops and no place where it starts.”
A third experiment from HeartMath in 1995 similarly shows that people’s emotions can affect the structure of DNA. Glen Rein and Rollin McCraty discovered that DNA changed based on what participants were thinking about.
These studies indicated that various intents generated distinct impacts on the DNA molecule, leading it to either wind or unwind, according to one of the researchers. Clearly, the consequences go beyond what orthodox scientific theory has allowed for up to this point.
These experiments from many years ago imply: Thoughts that have the ability to alter the structure of our DNA, in some inexplicable manner, we are linked to our DNA and the vibrations of photons of light surrounding us are altered by our DNA.
Many individuals will find these concepts odd, yet reality is often stranger than fiction. Similarly, established scientists and sceptics have long dismissed ancient astronaut theorists‘ questions as ridiculous. Scientific American reports says, the hypothesis of ancient aliens is based on a logical error known as “argumentum ad ignorantiam”, or “argument from ignorance.”
The vicious reasoning goes as follows: If there is no adequate earthly explanation for, instance, the Peruvian Nazca lines, Easter Island statues, or Egyptian pyramids, then the hypothesis that they were created by aliens from outer space must be true.
The truth is that we don’t have a good explanation for how humans evolved into their current form. We are all still looking for answers, but the reality may be more surprising than any of us could have ever imagined. We’ll never know if we don’t have an open mind, and perhaps that’s the key to unlocking answers hidden deep inside the ancient code known as DNA.
