An essay on the aliens already shaping man's

From observations of the stars and cosmic events scientists conclude the
age of the universe is about 14 billion years. It is only in the minutest
part of that history that the human species came into being.
With the arrival of humankind there was perhaps for the first time a
species able to comprehend this universe of ours. This may not be true of
the universe but on this planet Earth the evidence supports the claim.
However this uniqueness breeds an arrogant belief in humans that evolution
has made our species
This arrogance shows itself in various ways, one of which is the
assumption that we are the pinnacle of evolution. There have been 13
billion years of evolution and evidence suggests the universe will last
countless billions of years into the future. Evolution cannot and will not
stop. It isn't a reasoning process but a mechanism that sees life advance
into any available or newly-created niche. We have no valid reason
to assume we are the pinnacle of evolution.
A second arrogance is that humankind can through selfish actions destroy
the work of evolution. It is true that by our actions we might destroy the
ability of our species to live on this planet but life is more robust than
the majority of our kind realize. Further, it is beyond our ability to
either the universe or the process we call
evolution. And the selfishness that is the means to our destruction is
itself a part of the mechanism that saw humankind and every plant, animal
or microbe come into being and leave a heritage.
suggests life will survive the demise of humankind.
It is also true that life forms exist that have the ability to survive
draconian changes to the environments of the planet Earth.
tardigrades, also known as "water bears", are the toughest animals on the
planet, capable of withstanding intense radiation, extreme temperatures,
and even the vacuum of space. In a fascinating new study, researchers have
shown that tardigrades are poised to survive literally anything that nature
throws at them — and that of the animals alive today, they will be the last
ones standing before the Sun annihilates the Earth billions of years from
A third arrogance is that we have the peak of all the senses and
abilities developed by evolution. Not only does this arrogance claim that
we are the ultimate creation but it ignores that evolution has constantly
caused beings to progress
from existent states into a life form with enhanced sensory powers. And
whenever it happens all previous species remain oblivious of what this new
life form experiences. The history of evolution tells us our species will
be superseded by many generations of beings having sensory powers beyond
the range of all existing life on this planet.
The fourth arrogance is that humankind will take over the role of
evolution and determine the species that takes over from us. Our quite
extraordinary ability to master genes and engineer mechanical intelligence
cannot be underestimated but the evolutionary process is based on
that can't be controlled, the driving forces of survival, emotion,
ambition. Yes, we can produce forms that can re-create, innovate and
manufacture improved forms but without an eternal unreasoning drive it is
probable that their strongest desire will be maintaining the status quo. At the heart of
natural evolution is change brought about by exposure to brutal
forces and it is this aspect not intellect, insight or power that ensures
the randomness of what survives and thrives.
It is unlikely that humankind can anticipate the manner in which life
will evolve beyond the capabilities of our species yet we are capable of
understanding a small part of the potential options. And given the vast
amount of time that remains before the evolution of the stars comes to an
end then probably all these potentials will find a niche in future times.
But there will also be a vast quantity of life forms that are beyond
our capacity to dream.
And many of the potentials knowable to our kind are known to us through
our observations of quirks in nature such as matter-space-time quantum
effects and also non-human abilities seen in other species such as
migration of birds using magnetic fields. My interest lies in anomalies of
Another aspect of importance in determining future sensibilities lies in
the manner humankind has tended to restrict the concept of evolution to the
development of life. It is probable that the evolutionary process is a
fundamental mechanism behind the development of all things physical,
biological and conceptual. In respect to the last it should be apparent
that human memory evolved out of increasing awareness as well as
chemical interfaces for mass-space-time and that at some period in the
history of the universe no such concepts were present, they came later,
appearing seemingly out of a void.
Today matter-space-time quantum effects are not considered to be
anomalies by those knowledgeable in the evidence from modern science but
such acceptance came after the anomaly of broken continuity in atomic
behavior became observable. In the last two centuries mankind was able to
notice that electrons instantaneously jump from one
location to another with corresponding instantaneous adjustments to energy
levels of the atom.
Continuity was and still is a fundamental principle of modern science so
such an occurrence was anomalous within the classical understanding that
preceded quantum mechanics. The properties of this anomaly didn't go away,
it's still there. But science has adjusted its understanding of reality so
such behavior of the universe is now recognized as normal. And at the same
time new laws of quantum mechanics have been drafted to accommodate
evidence since observed. This process removes the anomaly since all such
laws are required to be reconciled with the classical ancestry.
But from a scientists point of view we live in exciting time because new
technological abilities allow humankind to observe the behavior of the
universe in a manner not accessible to our ancestors. And new peculiarities
keep emerging as we experiment meaning each event needs to find its place
within the existing framework. For instance the phenomenon of Quantum
Entanglement is still to be accorded a coherent place in the mechanism of
the universe even though it was being discussed as an issue of concern over
80 years ago.
In recent times the
magazine MIT Technology review has described quantum entanglement as a
"strange phenomenon" that occurs "when two quantum objects, such as
photons, form at the same instant and point in space and so share the same
existence." "In technical terms, they are described by the same wave
function," it said.
Albert Einstein once (in
the 1930's) called quantum entanglement
"spooky action at a distance".
In the quantum realm there are many other occasions where quantum
behavior challenges the older ideas on continuity including those relating
to force fields. Together these events show that modern science is moving
towards even newer ideas of the relationships between matter-energy and
And amongst these strange new observations an older set implies that the
future may reach back to the past; beings of the future may well evolve
powers that enable them to bridge time.
This older set relates to the class of events involving electro-magnetic
waves. One of the biggest anomalies that challenged scientists of the 19th
and 20th centuries was their speed which is constant in a vacuum. This was
completely different to expectations based on observing motion of material
objects in our universe. And it is still difficult to give a reason why
the speed of light is a constant even in the updated framework of modern science.
However I believe it is possible to give a reason that fits to these
older frames and it is quite simple; the propagation of light occurs within
a realm interlinked to our universe. The propagation of photons then provides
the constant space-time clock that delivers the concepts of both space and time.
There are strong reasons for believing this to be so. For example we
know that light cannot be detected by humankind unless it acts with matter
hence its motion can be eternal. We also know the fields associated with both
matter and photons seem to change instantaneously when they interact. And
my model suggest these
can well be explained by emws being a complementary overlay to our universe created at
the same-time as the mass-space-time realm. By such a
mechanism it is possible to not only explain why light's speed is of a
different form to that of moving objects in our universe but how expansion
of the universe takes place. (See my paper on
creation for more).
Although it may seem this concept of an overlay outside of our
understanding of time and space is totally new it isn't; humankind has
forever accepted such realms. Two such realms are those of number and
geometry. These realms have a common quality; they have no time dimension,
they are in essence eternal and they have innate structural layers. They
also are a crucial accessible source on which the universe constantly
And of course modern science is increasingly moving towards a
recognition of such a concept as it grapples with other anomalies such as
Dark Energy and Dark Matter.
So, since evolution is likely to continue
bringing life into all possible environments, then it is probable the
future will bring into being aspects of space-time not accessible to our
And it is highly probable that communication based on principles using
or paralleling quantum entanglement of photons will render communications
via emws obsolete.
In June 2017
it was announced :
have used a satellite to break distance record for distributing entangled
•The experiment is the first time entangled photons have been
generated in space
•Because any change in one particle will be apparent
in the other instantly, quantum entanglement has been considered a
potentially powerful tool for sending secure information
And given the billions of years yet to come it is very likely that at
some point a species will emerge that can interface events from a greater
span of space-time than that available to our species. Humankind has
abilities to bridge time and is reliant on the properties of memory to
reach both past and future. Many life forms have benefitted
from evolution by its building organs in living things that broaden their
awareness beyond the stream of instants of their being. But evolution has
also given rise to responsive structures allowing living things to anticipate
future events on repetitive actions from the past with many living things
having extraordinary reflexes that are activated by environmental stimuli. Future
evolution will probably increase the current depth to which a species can reach
into past and future.
But this simple idea of evolution enabling life forms to reach backwards
and forwards in time has a logical consequence of importance to our
species; it means that in some limited way future beings will
inevitably be present in our time. They may or may not be able to
affect aspects of our time but they will most likely be able to perceive
its nuances in the same way that our species understands the fossil
So it is reasonable to assume we are already exposed to
life forms that
we cannot comprehend.
We may already be affected or perhaps infected with that which will happen
but we are not alone since there are and have been things that like us are aware
but cannot comprehend alternate or more advanced evolutionary products. Our
species knows that other animals perform acts which are impossible for us
to comprehend. And it is unlikely that any dog or cat, cow, microbe or ape
will ever converse in a deep and meaningful manner with our kind.
So shedding the arrogance of our species about being the pinnacle of evolution means
we can predict the future does hold species with far greater powers than we can ever
dream. And we are part of them as they are part of us, an inevitable
symbiosis uniting life across time. We are linked by continuities that pass
a developing evolutionary program across the chains of all generations.
The future holds secrets man can never fully know - this is a truth like
death that cannot be denied. Yet I believe we can be confident that some
part of that future bestows ripples on our
time by resonating with those powers living things possess today.
And important in gaining insight to what is likely to emerge we can look
at what time means to individuals of our race.
For you time began when you were conceived and it ends when you die. Of
course there is also external time of which you are also aware.
began in a continuity within expanding space and it ends when this
continuity cannot be maintained. But importantly you, like the universe, can be traced back
to a singular time and space.
The process acting on the speck that frames the origin of every birth is ruled by laws
hence we arise
from the dynamics and the resonant bonds forming well defined bounds.
that exists draws its nature from the fractal patterns set by these bounds.
We are, like everything else, formed from the natural mathematical and
geometric designs that nature eternally accesses.
You evolved from such seeds as the most recent link in a chain scattered at intervals along
the overarching time system of our universe.
And fundamentally continuity through DNA has always
been the element linking us to the seeds from which we came. And this is
true even though the form of the substance at the time of origin exists

could control mysteries like dark matter, says scientist'.
ALIEN life is behind the mysteries of
the universe, according to a radical new theory.
non-human life forms morphed into the physical world and are the driving
force behind mind-boggling quantum physics and phenomena like dark matter,
according to a Columbia University astrophysicist.
The expert says
our universe is the remains of intelligent alien life which controls all
aspects of the physical world, from gravity to the speed of light.
ideas are in line with this but go further and suggest that the
concurrent presence of aliens in our lives
is a result of evolution reaching a stage where beings are able to stretch
their influence back through the ages.
My primary premise is that no matter
how long it takes ever enhanced sensory capabilities will be a likely
outcome of the evolutionary chain.
Such beings will be more omnipresent
than forms so far evolved but their ability to be created offers a rational
basis for future seeing but limited influence on all previous aspects of evolution

that turns to eat its own tail.
