SUPPRESSING BIOCHEMICAL BARRIER; In Understanding the True Origins of Humanity.

    The science of “Alternative Knowledge” is a narrow field of study within the umbrella of Mainstream Science. Alternative Knowledge is defined as “information rooted in mainstream science, but in areas normally kept from public discussion because they cast doubt on the currently accepted paradigms and dogmas of the mainstream.” It is a rare occurrence when these two scientific disciplines arrive at similar conclusions. There should be a celebration of sorts when this happens. This is when sharing factual and compelling data from credible sources is critical when disclosing the truth for all to see. It may not be the absolute truth but it lays the foundation for future generations to build on.

    The proclamations made on behalf of Alternative Knowledge are made by individuals who have spent a great deal of time cogitating over what they have observed and learned. Their dogged pursuit of the truth places them at odds with mainstream science. They realize their findings will subject themselves to all kinds of ridicule by members of public and private academia whose careers are dependent on protecting the status quo

    Alternative Knowledge’s (A.K) first salvo against mainstream science occurred over 50 years ago. Leslie Orgel at the Salk Institute in San Diego, California and Francis Crick at Cambridge England cited as evidence the excessively large role that the element molybdenum (symbol Mo and atomic number 42)   has in terrestrial biochemistry. What is peculiar about molybdenum is that it is a rare substance on the planet Earth.  On the other hand chromium (symbol Cr and atomic number 24) and nickel (symbol Cr and atomic number 24), which is 10 and 100 times more abundant in the environment, are relatively unimportant in terrestrial biochemistry. This leads one to question whether the role of molybdenum is an accident or was it a deliberate design. Lastly Francis Crick leaves us with a thought provoking quote; “DNA molecule (the essence of biological life) is far too complicated to have got started by accident on this planet.”

    Among biochemistry researchers who desire their anonymity there is a common consensus that “what we see in our DNA is a program consisting of two versions, a Mega genetic code and a Micro genetic code.” These researchers continue to support the facts in their investigations that the complete program for life on this planet was definitely not written on Earth. They believe this is a verifiable fact. The second fact is that “genes by themselves are not enough to explain evolution; there must be something more in the game.”

    With the emergence of the internet, A.K was prepared to be an antagonist to mainstream science. There was an unexpected outcome from The Human Genome Project (HGP) which was proposed in the 1980s and was formally initiated in 1990. The HGP’s major aims were to map and determine the chemical sequences of the three billion nucleotide base pairs that comprise the human genome. A large collaborative effort among scientists was needed for the completion and success of this project.  Scientist’s that have a propensity to think “outside the box” had to maintain a level of anonymity when disclosing information that would have normally been kept from the public. They feared that if their identities were revealed reprisals would be made against them.

    Years of extensive DNA analysis revealed that the human genome has over 4000 gene based disorders. Researcher and scholar Akul Mehta contends that there is “currently around 4,000 genetic disorders are known, with more being discovered. Most disorders are quite rare and affect one person in every several thousands or millions. Cystic fibrosis is one of the most common genetic disorders; around 5% of the population of the United States carries at least one copy of the defective gene.” How could 4000 gene base disorders be an evolutionary advantage? While man’s closest relative the chimpanzee has about150 to 300 gene based disorders in its genome. If these facts are to be accepted as accurate this would lend credence to the theory that the human genome could not have been the product of Darwinian evolution, but the result of Interventional evolution.  It appears that Homo sapiens were designed without any prior planning.

    Researcher’s working on the Human Genome Project made an unpredicted discovery, 97% of the non-coding sequence in human DNA (Junk DNA) has been identified as the genetic code of extraterrestrial life forms.  Anonymous researchers have made claims that the Junk DNA in the human genome accounts for a larger part of the total genome. It appears that the Junk DNA is common to all living organisms on Earth, from molds to fish to humans.

    Even though Junk DNA was discovered years ago, its function remained a mystery. Anonymous scientists have revealed their research has demonstrated that an overwhelming majority of the human DNA is “off-world” in origin. Over time it has become apparent that extra-terrestrial junk genes are passed from generation to generation. Upon completion of the Human Genome Project a comprehensive analysis with the assistance of scientists, computer programmers, mathematicians and other learned scholars theorized that human “Junk DNA” may have been created by some kind of “extraterrestrial programmers.” The “extraterrestrial programmers” purposely designed humans not to be their intellectual equals. It has been conjectured that a biochemical barrier in the brain exists to suppress any further development of glial cells which contributes to the development of a high intellect.  Further hypothesis helps to explain the extraordinary abilities of savants. It appears that a small break in this biochemical barrier leads to these phenomenal abilities. It has been conjectured if the biochemical barrier no longer existed in the Human brain an individual’s IQ’s (intelligence quotient) would be off the charts.

    In 1984 Marion Diamond PhD professor emerita of anatomy at University of California, Berkley, was directly involved in the investigation of Albert Einstein’s brain. The investigation revealed that Einstein had twice as many glial cells as normal males. As one can imagine, this discovery caused an international sensation. The scientific community issued the following statement concerning Diamond’s landmark investigation of Einstein’s brain, “In the past scientists believed that neurons were responsible for thinking and glial cells were support cells in the brain.  Researchers now believe the glial cells play a critical role in brain development, learning, memory, aging and disease.”

    “Junk DNA” or “noncoding DNA” may also function as a bio-molecular lot identifier (lot number) that enables the tracking of the bio-molecular components or ingredients as well as the outcome and resource records involved in the creation of hominids. The bio-molecular lot identifier enables “extra-terrestrial programmers” and other high intellect entities to perform end-point analysis, compute extinction rates, and issue modifications or cancel information to sections of their sequential assemblage. An identifier is provided that can be used in contacting the assembler and to review the specifically designed labor force that was consigned to the end-users. For example to trace back the origin of the sequential assemblage, in case of potential pathological problems.

    Before the Human Genome Project, Alternative Knowledge was in the process of building its case on the research provided by Sumerian scholar and archeologist Zecharia Sitchin concerning the origins of Homo sapiens. Sitchin’s investigations pointed in the direction of “forced labor” for its “end users.” To mine for precious minerals the extra-terrestrial programmers would provide a workforce that was acclimated to the South African environment. The purpose of the mining operation was to obtain the needed minerals to make environmental repairs on the extraterrestrials home planet. In order to maintain control over the work force “the programmers” designed a sub-standard copy of themselves. They purposely engineered a labor force of “sheeple”, individuals who would be docile, compliant, or easily influenced.

    Proponents of A.K. were having serious discussions on whether or not Homo sapiens were genetically engineered. Thought provoking questions were being raised about man’s closest relative the chimpanzee. Such questions were being posed by Lloyd Pye one of the early pioneers of Alternative knowledge.  Why is it that human’s do not have at least one common identical bone from their closest genetic relative the chimpanzee? There are similarities but no identical bones, even the bone densities are substantially different. In addition to other dissimilar features this cast serious doubt on ever finding the possible missing links or transitional fossils between chimpanzees and Homo sapiens.

    The science of genetic engineering has been growing by ‘leaps and bounds’.  With improved techniques in the isolation of genetic material, it was only a matter of time before alien segments from the Human genome would be isolated.  Through further genetic manipulation alien DNA was allowed to be re-established into a viable organism. This organism had its own veins, arteries and even its own immune system.

    The alien immune system has never been exposed to Pharmaceutical drugs. From an immunological perspective drugs are considered strange molecules.  As it turns out the alien immune system proved to be resistant to all pharmaceutical and anti-cancer drugs.  It can be assumed that there exists a symbiotic relationship between the alien DNA and the human DNA. It has been surmised that there had to be a sharing of nutrients for gene expression. The use of nutrients by genes complies with the Orthomolecular dictum that “genes do not operate in a nutritive vacuum.” Orthomolecular therapy ("Orthomolecular therapy consists in the prevention and treatment of disease by varying the concentrations in the human body of substances that are normally present." — Linus Pauling, 1968) is the only medical modality which can be used proactively to interact successfully with any alien carbon based bio-chemistry.

    Small group of unconventional thinkers were developing a theory that was gaining traction during the Human Genome Project. They believed that super advanced extraterrestrials were intent on creating new life forms and seeding them on planets that would be conducive to sustaining life. The skill level of genetic programming was so advanced, these super EBE’s would cultivate humans in a similar way contemporary humans grow bacteria in a petri dish. Genetic engineering is currently providing a high degree of certainty with regards to the origins of humanity. These independent-minded researchers could not come to an agreement as to the “extraterrestrial programmers” motives. Could it be as simple as plain scientific experimentation or a way of preparing new planets for colonization? Is it a possibility that this is a longstanding process of seeding life throughout the universe?

    Time is a major factor in the success or failure of genetic programming. There are no short cuts in finding out whether the genetic changes will be expressed as designed. The majority of the time genetic engineering is a continuous work in progress. A case in point occurred in a classified research facility during the late 1980’s to early 1990’s.  After perfecting cloning techniques on animals during The ‘Sentinel Project’, Dr. Michael Wolf and associates were successfully involved in the first genetic engineering of a human clone.

    They named the clone ‘J-Type Omega’.  Military (Black Budget) superiors wanted a super bright, super powerful soldier who would follow orders without fear or question. Against the wishes of the Military (Black Budget) superiors Wolf secretly programmed ethics into the clone’s genome after realizing that ‘J-Type’ had a soul.

   The ‘Sentinel Project’ involved a close collaboration with the ‘Greys’. The extraterrestrials expertise in genetics was desired in order to successfully bio-engineer a clone. ‘J-Omega’s’ embryonic development was conducted in a water tank. Part of the clones DNA came from Dr. Wolf. It took exactly one year before he was ready to be ‘awaken’.

   In Dr. Wolf’s 1993 book, ‘The Catcher of Heaven’: A Trilogy, Wolf explained how he was instructed to terminate ‘J-Type Omega’ because the male clone refused to follow an order by his military superiors to kill a dog.

   From a human point of view these “engineering programmers” were working on one big code that would produce a variety of life forms for an array of life sustaining planets. When this “Mega genetic code” was initiated traits appeared that was not part of the original design plan. Modifications were made and the code was re-executed again. This type of process would continue for several times until the changes were considered acceptable. The time needed to see whether the genetic improvements were expressed must have been on a timescale that is unimaginable to the human mind. When compared to the short lifespans of present day humans.

    After several modifications to the “Mega genetic code” if there was not any satisfactory progress, this is when time to these super EBE’s became an issue. They would proceed expeditiously to modify the “Mega genetic code”. It is presumed there would be significant reductions in the number of genetic modifications to specific genomes. A streamlined “Mega genetic code” now became a “Micro genetic code.” “Micro genetic codes” would be implemented when facing a looming deadline. This may have been in anticipation of a Gamma ray burst from a collapsing star that is headed in the direction of Earth. Independent thinking researchers during the HGP noticed apparent extra-terrestrial programming gaps in the DNA sequencing. It is thought that these gaps preceded the rush to create human life on Earth.

    The primary goal of the “Mega genetic code” was to ensure that organisms in this particular case Homo sapiens would be fully integrated into the evolutionary flow of the planet. Full integration would allow evolutionary forces to assume responsibility and make the needed changes to the human genome. One could think of evolution in this instance as a kind of “auto-pilot”. Once evolution took over there was no longer a need for direct intervention.

    The indigenous hominoids were selected as the template by which Homo sapiens would be designed from. The “engineering programmers” were encountering insurmountable problems with the “Mega genetic code” concerning the creation of humans. The indigenous hominoids had an active L-gulono-gamma-lactone oxidase molecule that allowed for the internal synthesis of ascorbic acid. Along with the ability to synthesize ascorbic acid, the hominoids were able to synthesize vitamins A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folate), B12 (cobalamin), E and K, vitamin B3 (niacin) and D. These hominoids were fully integrated into the evolutionary flow on Earth. Having 48 chromosomes in addition to their ability to internally synthesize ascorbic acid and their 13 vitamins made them difficult to domesticate. These hominoids were physically imposing and disease resistant. As a testament to their powerful physique these hominoids still exist even to this day. Pye’s Neanderthals are examples of living hominoids who have been misidentified as “Big foot”, “Sasquatch”, or “Skunk ape etc.”

    The “engineering programmers” had a mandate to design a work force that was acclimated Earth’s environment. They needed a work force that could learn and execute commands and be docile and compliant and easily influenced. The order was to create a work force of “sheeple”.  The first step in this design was the turning-off of the L-gulono-gamma-lactone oxidase molecule. Linus Pauling PhD a two-time (unshared) Nobel laureate and Irwin Stone PhD had a long held suspicion that the L-gulono-gamma-lactone oxidase molecule was deactivated in favor of accelerated neural development. A larger brain allowed these hominoids to learn and execute rudimentary tasks quickly. The inability to internally synthesize ascorbic acid made these hominoids vulnerable to a whole range of subclinical scurvy type diseases which in turn made them expendable assets when they were no longer needed.

    Bruce Lahn an assistant professor of human genetics at the University of Chicago and an investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Professor Lahn has come to the realization that the complexity of the human brain is not the result of a gradual evolution.  He further states that humans are the only species on earth that have brains that are the result of an extraordinary accelerated evolution.  The following quote from Professor Lahn is thought provoking, “simply put, evolution has been working very hard to produce us humans.” 

    Even with the L-gulono-gamma-lactone oxidase molecule deactivated, Pye’s Neanderthals still retained a foreboding physical presence. There physical stature would always be considered a threat to those EBE”s who desired a “sheeple” labor force. Another big hurdle the “engineering programmers” had to overcome was how to quickly replenish a work force that would periodically experience high mortality rates. The indigenous female Neanderthals had a monestrous cycle. The birth rate was not high enough to compensate for sudden increases in the death rate caused by a bleak life of physical labor.

    Let’s digress just for a moment, as EBE”s proceed along their own evolutionary path. They reach a point in their evolution where their survival is no longer dependent solely on technology. They’re nearing the pinnacle of their evolution. They are mostly all intellect. For example remote viewing would become there main mode of traversing through the multi- dimensional universe. An all intellect existence no longer requires the daily usage of their anthropomorphic body parts. Another way of describing this is “if you don’t use it you lose it!”  The EBE’s over a long period of time no longer have the physical skills to maintain, repair or build machinery. Their reliance on machines would be on those which controlled environmental conditions. It is somewhat ironic that these “high intellects” would require a work force to build and maintain the very machinery that they designed, for their existence.

     No high intellect “engineering programmers” would operate a cutting edge genetic engineering program on a densely populated planet except for present-day humans on Earth. The general population is potentially at risk when large scale genetic engineering operations are being conducted. The chance of an engineered virus or any other engineered microbial organism escaping into the general population cannot be risked.

    The planet Earth is located on the outskirts of the Milky Way Galaxy. Less than 20 million years ago Earth considered a backwater planet would have been considered an ideal place to conduct a large scale genetic programming operation. If a virus happened to escape the confines of a laboratory the ensuing collateral damage would be minimal. Not to make light of a serious situation, Earth 20 million years ago may have been the “Amazon.com” of its time with high intellect EBE’s placing custom orders for designed work forces. Remnants from this bygone era may still exist when one considers the diverse ethnicities that currently inhabit the Earth. Could China’s Terracotta Army sculptures be a representation of a plan of taking genetic engineering to the extreme?  In this case it would be the creation of massive armies.

    If mankind is fortunate enough to survive its technological adolescence hopefully humans we will now have earned the right to traverse the cosmos. It has been predicted that these space faring humans will come in contact with an unprecedented number of anthropomorphic beings. It would not be surprising if the genesis of such beings was here on Earth. The ancient Greek, ancient Roman and medieval philosophers believed in the geocentric, or the Ptolemaic system. This may have been a misinterpretation, instead of Earth being considered the center of the universe; maybe the Earth was considered the center or focal point of anthropomorphic creations.

    The “Watchers” believed that the female Homo Neanderthalensis monestrous cycle had to be altered to establish a labor force that could be replenished. This kind of change would require a series of genetic alterations. The first modification started with the L-gulono-gamma-lactone oxidase molecule. The second modification was the deactivation of the 13 vitamins. It is known that the L-gulono-gamma-lactone oxidase molecule has been deactivated for a long time. It is considered a psuedogene (a section of a chromosome that is an imperfect copy of a functional gene.) that has randomly accumulated a large number of mutations since the gene has been non-operational for less than 20 million years. The female Neanderthals 48 chromosomes were reduced to 46 chromosomes. Chromosomes 12 and 13 were fused to make human chromosome 2. Why the reduction? It has been suggested that the “Watchers” had 46 chromosomes they wanted their workforce to have 46 chromosomes.

      The reduction to 46 chromosomes along with the inability to internally synthesize ascorbic acid and their 13 micronutrients (vitamin B3 can still be internally synthesized, but the biochemical process is not very efficient. The late Abram Hoffer MD, PhD believed that the biosynthesis of B3 in humans is on an evolutionary decline.) altered the phenotype of the female Neanderthal test subjects. Once the genetic setbacks were overcome the major goal of allowing females to get pregnant anytime of the year was finally achieved.

     The ability to get pregnant anytime of the year ensured a continual supply of workers.  Continual genetic changes altered their phenotype. They no longer had a foreboding physique like their hominoid ancestors. Now they resembled the “Watchers”. The workforce became more manageable. The female’s ability to get pregnant anytime of the year created two fundamental problems that had to be addressed.  There was now the real possibility of an overpopulation of hominids. The “Watchers” genetic compatibility with the hominids would in time expose there propensity towards narcissistic behavior. Since, both the “Watchers” and hominids each have 46 chromosomes the two groups could engage in coital relations to produce hybrid offspring. According to Sumerian legend this “unholy union” gave rise to the species we all know as Homo sapiens.

    The inefficiency of the biosynthesis of vitamin B3 or niacin in humans creates a susceptibility to mental illness. This inefficiency is believed to be the source of mankind’s aberrant psychosocial behavior, example being warfare. According to Abram Hoffer MD, PhD it is easy to induce a psychosis in an individual. A shortage of niacin (vitamin B3) can on a consistent basis bring about a psychosis in a well-adjusted individual.  A lack of a small amount of niacin can cause an otherwise well-adjusted individual to become schizophrenic or have some other related psychosis. Dr. Hoffer further asserts that "chronic malnutrition and cerebral allergy are producers of misperception. They alter perception (The process by which people translate sensory impressions into a coherent and unified view of the world around them. Though necessarily based on incomplete and unverified or unreliable information, perception is equated with reality for most practical purposes and guides human behavior in general.) and thinking. Consequently, the relationship of an individual to the psychosocial environment will change."

   The reduction of the Hominoids genome from 48 chromosomes to 46 created a new species the hominids. For many thousands of years a deliberate institutional bias has inculcated a belief in humans that they are a divine creation. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Humans were genetically engineered to be domesticated for labor. Humans are hardwired to believe in figures of authority. There is an innate reluctance to question authority; which in turn makes for a good worker.  With all these changes made to create a new genome the “engineering programmers” could not extinguish the predatory nature in humans. All this information is in the “Junk DNA.”

    Robert F. Cathcart MD had a theory that during periods of great evolutionary stress (starvation) animals without L-gulonolactone oxidase molecule could excel in their environment to the extent that those animals with the gene became extinct.  During times of starvation those animals who had the transitional point mutation for the absence of L-gulonalactone oxidase molecule where able to find do to their accelerated brain development alternative sources of ascorbic acid.  A convenient source of ascorbic acid during these times was fresh meat.  Some hyperascorbemic hominoids had trouble adjusting during these stressful times, they were too specialized.  By being hypoascorbemic during evolutionary stressful times allowed the hominids to kill to get their supply of ascorbic acid. In extreme cases (such as a famine) hypoascorbemic primal man may have eliminated future competition for ascorbic acid by killing off their hominoid cousins. Here is a quote from Robert Ardreys 'African Genesis'  “Man had emerged from the anthropoid background for one reason only: because he was a killer.” The “engineering programmers” created a new species that was not part of the natural evolutionary flow of the planet Earth.

    The rush to make a manageable labor force, by way of reducing the chromosomes, deactivating L-gulono-gamma-lactone oxidase molecule along with the inability to synthesize 13 micronutrients, made these hominids disposable. In conjunction with these changes the mental abilities of humans are repressed by a biochemical barrier which prevents the further development of glial cells. This barrier prohibits the full integration of the “Junk DNA” with the neural system. This gives credence to the belief that there appears to be a general lack of forethought that went into the design of Homo sapiens.

    Conventional scientists like Adam Wu an Evolutionary neurosurgeon asserts the following:  “The broken vitamin C synthesis gene still exists in the human genome, as a pseudogene in the noncoding “junk” portion of the DNA. Lacking foresight, evolutionary mechanisms could not foresee that, in the future, humans would invent sailing ships, and go on voyages for extended time periods without access to vitamin C in their diets, and, as a result, suffer from scurvy, and thus could not preserve the vitamin C synthesis gene through the period when it was not useful, for that eventuality. That would be something one might see if humans had been created by an intelligent designer, and the fact that this is not so is one of many pieces of evidence that tell us that humans were not, in reality, intelligently designed.” Other mainstream scientists that remain anonymous have stated that their research has led to a hypothesis that “extraterrestrial programming gaps in the DNA sequencing precipitated by a rush to create human life on Earth presented humankind with illogical growth of mass of cells we know as cancer.”

    The odds from the very beginning have been stacked against mankind in terms of survivability. The inability of Homo sapiens to internally synthesize ascorbic acid has made them vulnerable to a whole range of subclinical scurvy type of diseases. This ranges from the common cold, heart disease and cancer. The odds are further stacked against humans when the biosynthesis of niacin (B3) has been determined not to be very efficient. This lack of efficiency has made the species of Homo sapiens susceptible to mental illness. If this wasn’t enough humans cannot synthesize vitamins A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folate), B12 (cobalamin), E and K, and D (this includes ascorbic acid and niacin). Female Homo sapiens ability to get pregnant anytime of the year is only at best a slight change in the odds in favor for survival. Humans are certainly not a divine creation, but to have survived for 250,000 years with these poor odds some sort of divine intervention had to have taken place.

   Who would ever have thought that the biosynthesis of ascorbic acid would open the door to the true origins of mankind? What is astounding when viewing this 4 step process, it reveals the bioengineering of mankind. In time it is hoped that the deciphering of the non-coding DNA will substantiate these findings. One can only hope that these initial findings will lay a solid foundation for when the entire “non-coding DNA” is fully deciphered. When all of the “Junk DNA” is finally decoded it will reveal a story of epic proportions concerning the origins of mankind. For example, a gradual accumulation of evidence is starting to reveal that Pre-Diluvian or Pre-Flood Earth resembled to a certain degree “The Lord of the Rings.” Former Canadian Minister of National Defense Paul Hellyer (1963-1967) has on numerous occasions stated that “extraterrestrials have been coming to Earth for thousands of years.” The late Jim Marrs (Author/Journalist) who was a staunch believer in Alternative Knowledge has stated “you cannot understand the planet Earth today unless you factor in the E.T question, who they are and what they’re doing here.”
