One of the main tenets of the ancient astronaut theory is that ancient beings may have manipulated the DNA of humans and other lifeforms. Numerous ancient carvings appear to show the double helix motif of DNA, prompting theorists to speculate: What if extraterrestrial beings gave humans an evolutionary kickstart? Perhaps they even created hybrids with their own DNA?
Another idea is that ancient cultures knew about a Third Eye located in the pituitary gland of the brain. The symbols of the pine cone-shaped gland appear connected with strange beings that seem to be conducting some alteration of the Tree of Life. To some, the tree appears symbolic of DNA and the human vertebrae.
More unknowable questions arise. How is the Third Eye and the DNA connected? Did these ancient beings have advanced knowledge of how to change the DNA structure through a higher consciousness?
Admittedly, it really does sound preposterous. However, some scientists today seem to be arriving at similar conclusions.
Before we look at these relatively new findings, consider that very little is known for sure about the vast majority of DNA. Only recently in 2018, they discovered an entirely new bizarre tangled form of DNA, a four-stranded knot of genetic code dubbed the i-motif.
Around the same time, scientists published their findings on ‘dark matter’ DNA, mysterious sequences nearly identical across all vertebrates, from humans, mice, to chickens. The Dark DNA is thought vital to life, yet we don’t know how yet. In fact, we don’t know what 98% of our DNA does, but we’re finding out it isn’t ‘junk’ after all.
Seeker discussed Dark DNA below:
As you can see, scientists still don’t know that much about our genetic genomes, much less what creates consciousness.
At the same time, some studies seem to show that intracellular, environmental, and energetic influences can change DNA. The field of epigenetics looks at how factors other than our genetic code alone change who and what we are.
Some researchers suggest we can change our DNA through intention, thoughts, and emotions. Maintaining positive thoughts and effectively overcoming stress can help maintain emotional well-being, and may also maintain our very DNA.
On the other hand, a study of 11,500 women at high risk for depression in the UK determined that mitochondrial DNA and the length of telomeres were changed.
According to Science Alert:
“The most notable discovery was that women who had stress-related depression – depression that’s associated with some kind of adversity during childhood such as sexual abuse – had more mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) than their peers. Mitochondria are the ‘powerhouse organelles’ that provide the energy for the rest of the cell, and an increase in mitochondrial DNA led the researchers to believe that the energy needs of their cells had changed in response to stress.”
These changes to the structure of DNA seem to advance the aging process.
“After going back over their results, the researchers also found that the women with stress-related depression had shorter telomeres than the healthy women. Telomeres are the caps at the end of our chromosomes that naturally shorten as we age, and the team began to question whether this process had been sped up by stress.”
Other findings suggest that meditation and yoga can help maintain telomeres.
Going a big step further, some researchers believe that our DNA is ultimately connected to our higher spiritual self. At this point, we begin to match up with the thinking of the ancients, according to ancient astronaut theorists.
If this sounds far out to you, then you might not want to proceed because it’s about to get weirder.
In 1995, a Quantum biologist from Russia, Vladimir Poponin conducted a mind-blowing study called “The DNA Phantom Effect.”
According to Medium:
“In a paper that appeared in the U.S. in 1995, they described a series of experiments suggesting that human DNA directly affects the physical world through what they believed was a new field of energy connecting the two.”
The study found that photons of light arranged themselves differently when in the presence of DNA living material.
“The DNA was clearly having a direct influence on the photons, as if shaping them into regular patterns through an invisible force. This is important, since there’s absolutely nothing in the tenets of conventional physics that would allow for this effect. Yet in this controlled environment, DNA — the substance that composes us — was observed and documented to have a direct effect on the quantum stuff that our world is made of!”
In another experiment from 1993, the Army tested how samples of DNA would react to emotions from human donors. The DNA was observed as the donors watched videos in another room. The person’s feelings affected the DNA, regardless of how far away the person was from the DNA sample. It seems to be a case of quantum entanglement.
“When the donor experienced emotional ‘peaks’ and ‘dips,’ his cells and DNA showed a powerful electrical response at the same instant in time. Although distances measured in hundreds of feet separated the donor and the samples, the DNA acted as if it was still physically connected to his body. The question is ‘Why?'”
Even when a subject was 350 miles away, their DNA sample reacted simultaneously. An unknown field of energy connected the two.
“When the donor had an emotional experience, the DNA reacted as if it were still connected to the donor’s body in some way. As Dr. Jeffrey Thompson, a colleague of Cleve Backster, states so eloquently, from this viewpoint: ‘There is no place where one’s body actually ends and no place where it begins.'”
A third experiment from 1995 by HeartMath also suggests that people can change the shape of DNA through their emotions. Researchers Glen Rein and Rollin McCraty found that, depending on what subjects were thinking about, DNA would change.
“In the words of one of the researchers, “These experiments revealed that different intentions produced different effects on the DNA molecule causing it to either wind or unwind.” Clearly, the implications are beyond anything that’s been allowed for in traditional scientific theory until now.”
These experiments from years ago suggest:
We can change our DNA structure through thoughts.
We are connected to our DNA in some mysterious way.
Our DNA changes the vibrations of photons of light around us.
These ideas no doubt sound strange to many people, but reality is often stranger than fiction. Likewise, mainstream scientists and skeptics have long believed the questions of ancient astronaut theorists to be absurd.
According to Scientific American:
“Ancient aliens theory is grounded in a logical fallacy called argumentum ad ignorantiam, or ‘argument from ignorance.’ The illogical reasoning goes like this: if there is no satisfactory terrestrial explanation for, say, the Nazca lines of Peru, the Easter Island statues or the Egyptian pyramids, then the theory that they were built by aliens from outer space must be true.”
The truth is we don’t have a satisfactory explanation for how human beings evolved into our present form today. We all continue to seek the answers, but the truth may be more unexpected than any of us could believe. We’ll never find out it if we don’t maintain an open mind, and perhaps that is the key to unlocking answers hidden deep in the ancient code called DNA.
It seems our thoughts have a profound effect on our bodies and the world around us.
