17:11:2012 -- Breaking Study Is The First To Show Link Between Being Present In The Moment And Ageless DNA

Dear Friends,

Be Well.

Breaking Study Is The First To Show Link Between Being Present In The Moment And Ageless DNA

Scientific studies have suggested that a mind that is present and in the moment indicates well-being, whereas shifting our energy to the past or future can lead to unhappiness. Now, a preliminary UCSF study shows a link between mind wandering and aging, by looking at a biological measure of longevity within our DNA.

In the study, telomere length, an emerging biomarker for cellular and general bodily aging, was assessed in association with the tendency to be present in the moment versus the tendency to mind wander, in research on 239 healthy, midlife women ranging in age from 50 to 65 years.

Being present in the moment was defined as an inclination to be focused on current tasks, while mind wandering was defined as the inclination to have thoughts about things other than the present or being elsewhere.

Many practitioners of spiritual health tell us not to deny the problems we are facing, but to also not get lost in them either. Psychological sciences have shown us that being present brings us greater alertness and inner security, allowing us to face challenges more objectively and with greater calm.

According to the findings, published online in the new Association for Psychological Science journal Clinical Psychological Science, those who reported more mind wandering had shorter telomeres, while those who reported more presence in the moment, or having a greater focus and engagement with their current activities, had longer telomeres, even after adjusting for current stress.

The human genome is packed with at least four million gene switches that reside in bits of DNA that once were dismissed as “junk” but it turns out that so-called junk DNA plays critical roles in controlling how cells, organs and other tissues behave. The discovery, considered a major medical and scientific breakthrough, has enormous implications for human health and consciousness because many complex diseases appear to be caused by tiny changes in hundreds of gene switches. 

As scientists delved into the “junk” -- parts of the DNA that are not actual genes containing instructions for proteins -- they discovered a complex system that controls genes. At least 80 percent of this DNA is active and needed. Another 15-17 percent has higher functions scientists are still decoding. 

Every human cell contains DNA and these strands genetically code us to who we are. Telomeres are the end caps of our DNA completing and protecting them but every time a cell replicates, these telomeres diminish. Telomeres typically shorten with age and in response to psychological and physiological stressors. At conception, your telomeres are 15,000 bases long but at birth, only 10,000 bases remain. Throughout your lifetime, your Telomeres continue to naturally erode. No one can live with Telomeres at less than 5,000 bases, so you can understand the importance in keeping your Telomeres as long as possible. In research pioneered at UCSF, scientists have discovered that telomere shortness predicts early disease and mortality.

As the study assessed mind wandering and telomeres at the same time, the researchers don't yet know whether mind wandering leads to shorter telomeres, whether the reverse occurs, or some common third factor is contributing to both.

Mindful meditation interventions, which promote attention on the present with a compassionate attitude of acceptance, lead to increases in some aspects of health. Being present and observant in purity without judgment also means that we have no emotionality surrounding our observations. Our emotional well being is not placed in the outcomes of our life's circumstances, but rather our wellbeing is placed inwardly and determined by a choice we make to remain calm, focused and expansive surrounding the multiple possibilities of the occurrences we are a witness to. 

Previous studies have found meditation interventions are associated with increased activity of an enzyme known as telomerase, which is responsible for protecting and in some cases, replenishing telomeres.

Along with the new UCSF study, these findings support the possibility that a focus on the present may be part of what promotes health measurable at the cellular level, the researchers said.
"Our attentional state -- where our thoughts rest at any moment -- turns out to be a fascinating window into our well-being. It may be affected by our emotional state as well as shape our emotional state," said Elissa Epel, PhD, associate professor of psychiatry and lead author on the study. "In our healthy sample, people who report being more engaged in their current activities tend to have longer telomeres. We don't yet know how generalizable or important this relationship is."
Moving forward, Epel, along with Eli Puterman, PhD, a psychologist in the UCSF Department of Psychiatry, and colleagues are developing a series of classes to promote more mindful presence, to see if this intervention protects telomere maintenance or even lengthens telomeres.
In the current study, participants self-reported a tendency to mind wander, and were measured for aspects of psychological distress and well-being. The sample was highly educated and had a narrow range of both chronological age and psychological stress (most were low stress), all of which might have contributed to the ability to detect this relationship, Epel said.

The study is the first to link attentional state to telomere length and to control for stress and depression, Epel said. Previous studies have shown links between telomere length and particular types of stress and depression. Since this study relied on self-reported attentional state, she said, further studies directly measuring presence and mind wandering will be needed.

"We now have evidence for a new type of healing in which DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by the way we think without physically modifying a single gene," said Professor and geneticist Karina Mika.

"This study was a first step and suggests it's worth delving into understanding the link between mind wandering and cell health to get a better understanding of whether there is causality and reversibility," said Epel. "For example, does reducing mind wandering promote better cell health? Or are these relationships just reflective of some underlying long-standing characteristics of a person?"
"Results suggest the possibility that the attitude of acceptance of negative experiences might be one of the factors that promotes greater ability to be more present -- to be okay with one's current experience and not avoid the unpleasant aspects of everyday experiences," she said.

"A number of emotion theories suggest that greater attentional control leads to less suppression of negative emotions, and thus less of the rebound effect of unsuccessful suppression," said Wendy Berry Mendes, PhD, associate professor and Sarlo/Ekman Endowed Chair of Emotion at UCSF and co-author on this study. "Alternatively, attentional control may help us interpret emotions in a more constructive way, what we call 'positive reappraisals.' Such styles of thinking have been associated with healthy physiological states."

"Over many millennia our minds and physical being have become time machines programmed to grow old and expire, but it doesn't have to be that way," said Mika. "Being ageless could be as simple as changing our emotional state and thinking differently," she concluded.

Research on telomeres, and the enzyme that makes them, was pioneered by three Americans, including Blackburn, who co-discovered the telomerase enzyme in 1985. The scientists received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2009 for this work.

16:11:2012 -- Did a lost star knock the Earth off its orbit?

Dear Friends,

Ya think?

Be Well.

Did a lost star knock the Earth off its orbit? New theory to explain why our planet circles the sun at an angle to the solar equator

  • The Earth circles around the solar system at an angle 7 degrees off the solar equator
  • Theory suggests that gravity from errant star travelling near to our solar system pulled the planets out of whack
PUBLISHED: 14:42 GMT, 16 November 2012 UPDATED: 16:28 GMT, 16 November 2012

It has been a long standing puzzle to astronomers: why is the Earth's orbit tipped 7 degrees relative to the sun's equator?
Now a new theory suggests that violent stage of our solar system's history, an errant young star strayed close and pulled our developing planets out of whack with the sun's equator.

Konstantin Batygin of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts, suggests that our star had a near stellar neighbour at the time Earth formed.

Our solar system: All the planets in our system orbit at angles to the sun's equator. A new theory suggests they may have been pulled out of whack by a nearby stellar neighbour that has long ago left the scene
Our solar system: All the planets in our system orbit at angles to the sun's equator. A new theory suggests they may have been pulled out of whack by a nearby stellar neighbour that has long ago left the scene

It is the gravitational of this nearby star on our developing system that explains why the planets don't orbit neatly around the sun's equator.

Dr Batygin outlines his theory in a letter published in the journal Nature titled A primordial origin for misalignments between stellar spin axes and planetary orbits.

 The work explains the phenomenon of planets outside the solar system discovered following tilted or even backward orbits. 

It was thought that such planets were victims of violent events in which the gravitational force of another planet kicked them on to their odd paths.


A ‘homeless planet’ which floats through space without orbiting a star had been discovered for the first time.
Scientists have speculated on the existence of such a planet and have been trawling the night skies for more than a decade, although the hunt was described as looking for a ‘needle in a thousand haystacks’.
The isolated planet, shown below in an artist's impression, which astronomers believe may have been flung away during its formation, is not tied by gravity to a star and in 100 light years away.
This artist's impression shows the free-floating planet CFBDSIR J214947.2-040308.9
But Dr Konstantin contends that young suns may develop in clusters, with the disks of matter surrounding them and nearly always spreading from the equator being tugged by a neighbouring star.

In his letter to Nature, he calculates how a young star's protoplanetary disk can be yanked off its equatorial orbit by a second star.

'I think somewhere in the Milky Way, there's a star that's responsible for tilting us,' he writes, adding that it probably then fled the after the planets formed.

Josh Winn, an astronomer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, told ScienceNOW that he thinks Dr Batygin's theory is 'an entirely plausible idea'.

'The best thing about it is we can test it,' he added, telling the online magazine that he hopes to use instruments to observe multiplanet systems and to evaluate the theory.

Nasa's Kepler spacecraft has so far measured the tilt of just one multiplanet system, Kepler 30, whose three planets all line up with their sun's equator.

Of course, there are many solar systems that still have more than one star, for example our nearest neighbour Alpha Centauri, which has three stars - one of which has a planet similar in size to our own.

'There's a good chance that astronomers will find misalignment in the Alpha Centauri system,' Dr Batygin says.

Dear Friends,

Be Well.

Embracing Your Inner Robot: A Singular Vision Of The Future

Last week I went to a lecture by the inventor and futurist author Ray Kurzweil, who was visiting Dartmouth College for a couple of days. Kurzweil became famous for his music synthesizers and his text-to-speech software, which are of great help to those who can't read or are blind. Stevie Wonder was one of his first customers. His main take, that the exponential advance in information and computer technology will deeply transform society and the meaning of being human, resonates with many people and scares a bunch more.

Using his exponential curve for processing-power-per-dollar increase, Kurzweil estimates that by 2045 we will reach the "Singularity," a point of no return where people and machine will reach a deep level of integration. You can watch Kurzweil walk through his ideas at Here's a sample posted to YouTube:


For those who can afford it — and that's a whole topic of discussion by itself: what will happen to those who can't? — life will be something very different. Lifespan will be enormously extended, death will become an affliction and not an inevitability. I guess only taxes will remain a certainty!
Are such scenarios sci-fi or the reality of the future?

Take synthetic biology, for example, the ability to reprogram the genes of existing creatures to make them do what we want them to do. We might have bacteria create electricity and clean water from waste, produce blood, vaccines, fuels or whatever we fancy. We could recreate specific bodily organs to replace those that are malfunctioning, using your own DNA; boost your immunity against effectively anything; enhance intelligence and memory.

Advances in the speed with which we read genomes have been so dramatic that we now talk about using DNA as a storage device. After all, DNA encodes information in very clear ways and we could manipulate it to encode any information we want. As George Church and Ed Regis write in their thought-provoking recent book Regenesis: How Synthetic Biology Will Reinvent Nature , in principle we could store the whole of Wikipedia (in all languages) on a chip the size of a cell, for a cost of $1 for 100,000 copies.

Human-machine integration, in fact, is already happening at many levels: most people feel lost without their cell phone, as if a part of their body or self is missing.

According to Kurzweil, by 2029 computers will be powerful enough to simulate the human brain. From his "Law of Accelerated Returns" he estimates that in 25 years we will have technologies billions of times more powerful than we have today. Just think that five years ago social media — today a transformative force in the world — was practically inexistent, or that the biggest computers in the 1970s were a million-times more expensive and a thousand-times less efficient than the chips we have in our smartphones, representing a billion-fold increase in computing efficiency per dollar.
Singularity, in the case of black hole physics (Kurzweil's inspiration for the term), represents a breakdown point, where the laws of physics as we currently understand them stop making sense. This doesn't mean that there is an a priori reason for us not to understand the physics near the singularity, but that we currently don't have the theoretical tools to do so.

In the case of artificial intelligence plus synthetic biology, the final alliance between humans and bio-informatics technology, it's much harder to predict what could happen.

Every new technology can be applied for good or for evil (or both). If, as Kurzweil, we take an optimistic view and see how humanity has benefited from technology as a harbinger of things to come (we live longer and better, and although we kill more efficiently, we kill less), the Singularity will bring a new stage in the history of evolution, prompted by one of its creations: us.

The body will be superfluous, since we are, in essence, coiled information, a blueprint, a sequence of instructions that can be duplicated at will. Will you then become a memory stick that can be inserted into a machine that can make copies of you? Or, perhaps, we will become a super-evolved character in a video game, an intelligent Sims person, convinced that the virtual reality surrounding us is real. After all, to simulate reality in ways identical to what we perceive is simply a matter of data gathering, advanced software, and processing power, all promises of this upcoming future.

If this is what's next, and odds are it is, we should start thinking of the consequences springing out of humanity's redefinition. For one thing, it'll be important to make sure copies of yourself are backed up in a safe location. You never know when an evil mind might decide to delete you from existence! That's right, in this new future we won't die anymore; we will be deleted.

One Million Robots: Our Replacements Have Arrived

Nicholas West

In the ongoing debate as to whether robots will help or hurt the job market in the U.S. and overseas, some concrete answers are beginning to appear.

Foxconn is a Chinese electronics manufacturer of mobile devices and gaming consoles. The company has been the target of negative news lately about work conditions that have led to mutiny and suicides. They are a supplier of Apple, Kindle, Xbox 360 and others, so the spotlight has been shining.

Now it seems that Foxconn would like to replace these troublesome humans demanding rights and fair pay with robots.

The first fleet has arrived ... 

As Singularity Hub reports, Foxconn's president Terry Gau did not hide the fact that his company was seeking to replace parts of his human force with robots; he indicated last year that he intended to replace 1 million workers within 3 years:
It appears as if Gou has started the ball in motion. Since the announcement, a first batch of 10,000 robots — aptly named Foxbots — appear to have made its way into at least one factory, and by the end of 2012, another 20,000 more will be installed. (Source)

International pressure on Foxconn seems to be a valid excuse for human replacement rather than actual fundamental policy changes. Globalization and outsourcing have forced American companies doing business overseas to account for some of the human rights abuses occurring there.

There is no doubt that robots are changing the world; it is an industry that is growing magnificently. In China alone the industrial robotics market has grown 136% in three years between 2008-2011, with an additional 15% projected for 2012. This trend is leading to predictions that by 2014 China will become the world's top consumer of robotics as well. 

With such outstanding results in both production and consumption beginning to transform China's economy, will this force a "reshoring initiative" in America as some proponents of robotics suggest? Or is this merely the first salvo fired against the increasingly expensive employment and management of the human race?
Robots can often perform complex or difficult tasks impossible for their human counterparts, and can also improve energy efficiency — a top priority in China’s developing economy. In addition, as education rates rise, fewer young people may be happy to work in basic labor jobs, especially when improved healthcare means that working-age Chinese people may also have to support their ageing parents. (Source)
While robots are still being sold as replacements only for menial jobs that humans supposedly don't want, there is every indication with the rise of artificial intelligence that we are likely to see more skilled jobs going to robots in the future. And with advances in autonomous robots, even the current corporate management who seeks to replace their employees might one day find themselves out of a job.

08:11:2012-- UNDERSEA MYSTERY-4

Dear Friends,

 Be Well. 


Report 226 November 7, 2012 Joseph P. Skipper J. P. Skipper can be contacted at:

Report 226
November 7, 2012
Joseph P. Skipper

J. P. Skipper can be contacted at:
The above 1st and 2nd images are wide-angle locator type images that should help those of you around the world who wish to get on Google Earth and examine the evidence in this report for yourselves. As you can see in the above images, the evidence here is in a narrow strip running along where the continental shelf drops off into the Pacific deep. Note that it reveals partial sea floor details extending north to south down the Baja peninsula west-coast right on the edge of the continental shelf where it drops off. The most obvious evidence that doesn't fit the more natural looking terrain and draws one's attention is what at first appears to be exposed ridge lines, tubes, or tunnels that I've pointed out with red arrows.

The truth is that this anomalous looking evidence here is in relatively close proximity to what I have identified as a destroyed mine in my separate Report 225. In fact, the two sites are so close to each other that those doing their own research on the Report 225 evidence will more than likely quickly encounter this Report 226 evidence and be inquiring about it as well as being compelled to report on it themselves. Therefore, anticipating this, I am making this second Report 226 and releasing it at the same time as Report 225 to reveal the most unusual aspects about this particular evidence to at least make sure that it isn't missed.

Report 225 is for the most part evidence with my speculation that the main object in that report is a gigantic mine destroyed and immobilized on the sea floor due to catastrophic destruction all along its left or west side. I speculate that the destruction was likely triggered by the immense mine crossing over harming and revealing a system of tunnels or tubes and someone associated with them no doubt objected to this. On the other hand, in a different scenario the mine could have also simply been a run-away and it had to be stopped fast in its tracks. However, we'll likely never know the answer to that via this Google Earth evidence.
In the above 3rd image you can see the fairly close proximity of the two Report 225 and Report 226 evidence sites to each other. If any of the scenarios I'm speculating on here are true, the destroyed mine's original path, assuming a south to north course, would have probably carried it right into the thick of what is almost certainly civilization evidence in this report. Evidence that is every bit as large or larger than the mine's immense size and with incredible vertical heights that very well might have destroyed the mine and anyone onboard along with severe damage to some colossal tall structures. So stopping the mine fast may have been a priority benevolent decision and we should not assume it to be a hostile act until more is known.
The above 4th image demonstrates the evidence site that is the main subject of this report. It consists of a series of what at first appear to be ridge lines and the "ridge line" with the two red X's on it is the most obvious. However, once this object is examined more closely, it begins to suggest what could be tubes or tunnels as in Report 225 but then even closer inspection reveals more than that and more than what one would expect.

Even at the distant view provided here this 21 km or 13 mile long "ridge" looks strange and anomalous like a tube or tunnel where it shouldn't be but closer inspection reveals anomalous information more and more suggesting artificiality that goes beyond mere tunnels. For example, the entire ridge line is a consistent 1,250 feet in minimum width along its 13 mile long length. Further, its entire top surface is consistently rounded or dome shaped as well as smooth and clean as though it is made of a smooth glass like material and this extends down its sides to the bottom some 10,000–13,000 feet below and it appears to be well maintained to remain clean.

Compare that to Earth's tallest building which is the 828 meter 2,716 foot tall Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai. Also, despite a sort of natural look mimicking a ridge line its top surface is a consistently level 273 meters or 896 feet deep below the ocean water surface. Even though that's just the beginning, note that at depths below 500' it is dark as the inside of a cave with no sunlight penetration at all and the pressure is absolutely tremendous to the point of being very dangerous to we humans even when we're surrounded by armour.

Likewise and get this, if you fell off the top side edge of this structure even armored to withstand the monstrous pressure, you would be in a unimpeded free fall with plenty of time to think about it straight down the sheer vertical smooth walls about 10,000+–13,000+ feet to the bottom as confirmed by the many depth counter samplings I've taken in Google Earth to make sure as sure as possible that this evidence is real. Also, examination of the object's sides and their base areas does not reveal any unique supports, just a smooth straight drop down to the bottom.

So, except for being anchored on the bottom and at each end, this monster narrow immensely tall construct is a free standing object of sorts. Considering that this 13 mile long object sits on an area of likely geologically unstable ground faults where quakes are fairly common, its survival there over time is an extraordinary achievement by "someone."

All in all to say that this 13 mile long, 1,250 foot thick, 10,000–13,000+ foot high, but still relatively level object is enormous as well as anomalous and an attention getter is a serious understatement. It appears to be an artificial construct of immense proportions fully equal to or far exceeding the immense "mines" or "mining" scale concepts.

Remember and I repeat, the top of this object starts almost 900 feet down below the ocean water surface. At that depth arriving that at the top of this object it is black dark when it comes to known human vision limitations. Likewise, the starting pressure just at the top of this monster object, as tremendous as it is, is nothing in comparison to what would be the case further down into the 10,000–13,000+ feet depths below where its base is and where construction without a doubt must have began on it whenever that was started.

Also, remember that we are provided only a partial look at this type of huge scale evidence while other likely even more significant evidence is still hidden from our view no doubt by intent. Remember to that the only people known to us that might be able to reach these depths and only for a few minutes at a time must less work down there for extended periods of time building this construct are what I refer to as Earth's secrecy crowd. Note that it would be most uncharacteristic for people of their psychology to reveal this evidence if they had a choice.

That means that this evidence, assuming it is real, almost certainly belongs to someone else that isn't us and also is not the secrecy crowd. What we can see of this is just what someone wants us to see. Likewise, that in turn means that our secrecy crowd, unless you can believe that they don't know about this sitting in plain sight in Google Earth at the coordinates provided in the images here, is logically unable to prevent its display. In my opinion and after years of dealing with them through this work, our secrecy crowd would never allow us to see this if they had the power to stop it. That logically suggests that who ever this is has the power to make their things happen the way they want them to and over the anticipated resistance of our secrecy crowd.

I need to also say that this construct's presence on the sea floor some 11,000–14,000 down and in the black dark and under monstrous pressure along with the mine activity that is present around our planet at these same great depths suggests that who ever this is may be quite comfortable with those depths, darkness, and pressure further identifying them as not us and likely possessing technology well in advance of our own.
The above 5th image demonstrates a closer view of a representative upper section of the 1st object in question. The view is centered right on the top of the main formation. The narrow darkness just visible shown on either side of it are actually the base areas of the object where they are in contact with the bottom thousands of feet further down below. This demonstrates just what a steep vertically straight down free fall drop it is. Note that the top of this free standing formation, although some 1,250 feet across at this most narrow point, is rounded, smooth, fairly level, and appears to be covered in some resin like sealing material.
The above 6th image is a split screen demonstrating two angled views of the formation's side walls first on the left/west side and second on the opposite right/east side. The right or east side is normally a bit less in depth than the left or west side. That is likely because the right side is normally associated with the proximity of the continental shelf's adjacent more shallow depths and that may generate more sediment drift over time.

As you can see, either side appears to be vertically smooth and straight down from the top to the bottom without a break in it or any evidence of extra supports. These do not appear to be image artifacts and therefore not real because I can confirm that the whole 13 mile length of the formation responds as something real to the Google Earth depth counter and is like this. On the other hand, the sides do show some visual slight bulging unevenness from bottom to top and with some regularity.

This suggests that there may be massive ribs inside the formation sort of like the substantial vertical sections of a free standing oil space heater or radiator design if it were covered in resin. However, speculation of the presence of such ribs as described here are via simple observation and cannot necessarily be relied upon as fact without being able to clearly see them through the exterior surface and someone who dots all the "I's" and crosses all the "T's" on this evidence is obviously preventing that.
The above 7th image is all the way down at the south end of the formation where it appears to terminate and may attach to the land mass there. Although, as you can see here, the end flares as well as flattens out, it is otherwise obscured on the left or west side as well as at the very south end top. Considering that the entire 13 mile length of the formation appears relatively free enough of image tampering that might conceal it as an artificial construct and its purpose. I strongly suspect that researchers in Google Earth like myself were meant to find the clearer narrow strip portions of this evidence but apparently not all of it.

That combination of revealing while at the same time hiding some aspects suggests manipulation and, as I stated above, I do not believe that the regular secrecy crowd I'm so used to dealing with would have done this. In my experience, they've always been consistent in their attempts to obscure and hide all that they can that may lead to knowlege or civilization evidence. I do not believe that they would have left any of this for you and I to see if they had a choice. I suspect that someone not us has technology here that brushes our secrecy crowd's efforts aside and shows what ever they want to and hides what ever they want to. In other words, I suspect that someone unknown to you and I is giving us the opportunity to look at this in a limited way to recognize it as both artificial and massive but no more than that, at least for the time being.

I suspect that the nearby destroyed mine in Report 225 is the same situation and contiguous to this Report 226 evidence even though I have treated them separately. It is a strong reason why I draw a connection between the Report 225 mine destruction and these Report 226 formations rather than promote the concept of some kind of internal mine defect and failure. The fact that the mine continues to sit there apparently unattended and for all to see by either the mine operators or the local types or even hidden by our usual secrecy crowd says a great deal to someone suspicious.

Why be suspicious you say? Well you don't see anyone else but a lone independent bringing this kind of evidence to your attention for your consideration do you? The question should really be why aren't others more suspicious or are you interested in the truth?

So what is it that no one want us to see by limiting what we can detect here? I suspect that they don't want us to see ships (USO's) or their support facilities because I do suspect this flared end is an entrance to the main complex and much might be reverse engineered by a detailed look at very much of that not to mention that the area may still be life active. On the other hand, I of course might also be reading too much into this but I can't escape the sense that someone is controlling the perception here in what we're allowed to learn from this discovery beyond the probable reality of someone else's existence on this planet with us and what they may possess and be capable of.

I realize that this kind of speculation will be upsetting to some and result in plenty of criticism headed my way with respect to what they will characterize as my wild imagination. However, I think that I would be remiss if I did not reveal all the insight that I think that I can on this. Someone wants us to see this destroyed mine in Report 225 and of course be impressed by it. Further, I suspect someone also wants us to see the massive size scales involved in the colossal constructs. Why? Perhaps to teach us to use restraint and be more careful and cautious. You may see it differently but that's my take on it.

In case you might still contemplate that the "someone" is in our usual human secrecy crowd, consider this. Remember again that down where all of this evidence is at it is black dark for we humans like being inside a cave with no sunlight penetration at all and the monstrous pressure being exerted down there precludes any real working at these depths under our current technology. Further, the artificial constructs we are allowed to get a decent look at here are not only massive, they are in a likely geologically unstable area where they must survive earthquakes over time.

So they can be considered permanent massive constructs that would almost certainly take time to build with that process extending back in time. That logically means that it is extremely unlikely that humans with our limitations had anything to do with building them within our known history. Further, what appears to be the cleanliness of the primary constructs undersea and no one attempting to hide the damaged mine suggests that at least some level of life activity by someone may continue at these sites actively rendering decisions along these lines.

If so, that is a concept that some may find disturbing. I've found that ancient long abandoned evidence in the relative sense is more acceptable with the mainstream than the current presence of a strong civilization here that isn't ours. This evidence so close to us just isn't something that the mainstream prefers to be aware of. Further, it is even more disturbing if that evidence is thought to be right here with us on Earth rather than off on some distant planet.
The above 8th image along with the 2nd image further up demonstrates where this report's 1st and 2nd sites are located in relation to each other. Note that the secondary object under focus here in this report with the red "X" and red arrows may have been disconnected from the flared end of the 1st site evidence at some point in the past and then bent in a curve to run north and south parallel along the edge of the continental shelf to form a shield wall there and of more modest proportions. Unfortunately, although there are other such constructs bisecting this terrain that I'm not reporting on here, note that we are not privileged to see how or if this kind of evidence may form joint networked systems with each other and otherwise determine what is really going on here.

The above 9th image except for measurements as in the 8th image has the main emphasis on the object marked with the red "X." Note that the evidence in this 2nd site is essentially the same as in the 1st site except the scale sizes of the objects we can see are somewhat less and the water depths are little more shallow. Otherwise, the construct designs are the same. So there doesn't seem to be a reason to produce another series of images for this evidence here.

In this report's imaging, you will see the close proximity of the Islas San Bernito only about 3.5 km or 2.17 miles from the evidence site. This is a relatively bare uninhabited small group of three islands about 100-110 km or 62–68 miles off the west coast of the Mexican state of Baja California right where the continental shelf drops off into much deeper water just west beyond the islands. Another nearby much larger more populated island is Islas Cedros about 25 km or 15 miles to the southeast of San Bernito. About 15 km or 9.3 miles to the south of Cedros is the more modern Islas Natividad focusing more on tourism. A primary attraction in all these areas is fisheries, birds, seals, whales, kelp, salt, etc. and a bit of tourism.

The 150 km or 93 miles of island north/south distances combined together parallel the length of what we can see of this evidence site. Most of the evidence is hidden behind obfuscation treatments but a very narrow north to south band or gap in the smudge reveals at least what I'm reporting on here. Of course there may be more and even a lot more but this is all that can be ascertained at this time. Obviously, out of 93 miles my reporting can only focus on select representative samples of the evidence and I've tried to select the most informative in these two reports.

As I write this my thoughts keeps returning to my Commentary #054 on "The Bloop" sound and the possibility of the existence of Merpeople. If Merpeople do exist then the general "assumption" is that they may be an ancient race that evolved from scratch on this world via a different path and have managed to successfully avoid humans because they are a race now of few survivors with only primitive technology like spears and arrows. This is a less disturbing view to some because it is perceived as safer by the mainstream but it is an assumption based on ....... well nothing.

The Earth is at least a 70% water world with we humans occupying only 20%–30% of the dry land space sticking out of the water and that logically may even exclude the entire large continent of Antarctica allegedly covered by snow and ice. I'm also still thinking about those cave paintings shown in that relatively crappy Mermaid TV special that in my opinion was meant to undermine itself. If those cave wall images are for real, they may possibly date back into prehistoric times and they depict Merpeople swimming with or cavorting with people, whales, dolphins, etc. suggesting that some early humans did know of their presence.

However, what if Merpeople do exist here on this 70% water world and what if they are connected to the massive constructs depicted here in this report or perhaps to the 5-mile wide undersea mines? If so, that means that they logically are also connected to the advanced technology that it took to build the mines and/or the colossal constructs. Now that we think a little more about it, they aren't perceived as being quite so safe any more are they?

Remember that who ever did or is doing this is operating in what to us is complete darkness building and navigating massive undersea mines in that darkness and/or building massive undersea free standing colossal constructs starting at 14,000+ foot down in our ocean's crushing pressures. Further, they likely started this back when avoiding humans was not likely an issue and operating in this darkness at these depths was likely only a matter of their own convenience unless there were other enemies of that time for them to consider. If there were enemies of that time for such people to consider, obviously you and I would not like to meet them.

It's all just speculation but it also isn't something to just dismiss wholesale either. The bottom line is that evidence like this appears to be mounting and moving us toward an awareness of our not being alone on this planet. Therefore, we need to be paying attention to it, not try to leave it to others hoping they will deal with it for us, and not just automatically dismiss it. Remember, although my interpretation can be as off the mark as anyone's can, I do not make the evidence, only report it.

How to Digitally Record/Video a UFO sighting:

Como registar digitalmente ou gravar um vídeo de um avistamento de um UFO:

Stabilize the camera on a tripod. If there is no tripod, then set it on top of a stable, flat surface. If that is not possible lean against a wall to stabilize your body and prevent the camera from filming in a shaky, unsteady manner.

Estabilize a camera com um tripé. Se não tiver um tripé, então coloque-a em cima de uma superfície estável. Se não for possível, então encoste-se a uma parede para estabilizar o corpo e evitar que a camera registe de maneira tremida e instável.

Provide visual reference points for comparison. This includes the horizon, treetops, lampposts, houses, and geographical landmarks (i.e., Horsetooth Reservoir, Mt. Adams, etc.) Provide this in the video whenever is appropriate and doesn’t detract from what your focus is, the UFO.

Forneça pontos visuais de referência para comparação. Isso inclui o horizonte, cimo das árvores, postes de iluminação, pontos de referência geográficos (como o Reservatório de Horsetooth, Mone Adams, etc) Forneça esses pontos no vídeo sempre que for apropriado e não se distraia do que é o seu foco, o UFO/a Nave.

Narrate your videotape. Provide details of the date, time, location, and direction (N,S,E,W) you are looking in. Provide your observations on the weather, including approximate temperature, windspeed, any visible cloud cover or noticeable weather anomalies or events. Narrate on the shape, size, color, movements, approximate altitude of the UFO, etc and what it appears to be doing. Also include any unusual physical, psychological or emotional sensations you might have. Narrate any visual reference points on camera so they correlate with what the viewer will see, and thereby will be better able to understand.

Faça a narração do vídeo. Forneça pormenores sobre a data, hora, local e direcção (Norte, Sul, Este, Oeste) que está a observar. Faça observações sobre as condições atmosféricas, incluindo a temperatura aproximada, velocidade do vento, quantidade de nuvens, anomalias ou acontecimentos meteorológicos evidentes. Descreva a forma, o tamanho, a cor, os movimentos, a altitude aproximada onde se encontra o UFO/nave, etc e o que aparenta estar a fazer. Inclua também quaisquer aspectos pouco habituais de sensações físicas, psicológicas ou emocionais que possa ter. Faça a narração de todos os pontos de referência visual que o espectador irá ver e que, deste modo, será capaz de compreender melhor.

Be persistent and consistent. Return to the scene to videotape and record at this same location. If you have been successful once, the UFO sightings may be occurring in this region regularly, perhaps for specific reasons unknown, and you may be successful again. You may also wish to return to the same location at a different time of day (daylight hours) for better orientation and reference. Film just a minute or two under “normal” circumstances for comparison. Write down what you remember immediately after. As soon as you are done recording the experience/event, immediately write down your impressions, memories, thoughts, emotions, etc. so it is on the record in writing. If there were other witnesses, have them independently record their own impressions, thoughts, etc. Include in this exercise any drawings, sketches, or diagrams. Make sure you date and sign your documentation.

Seja persistente e não contraditório. Volte ao local da cena e registe o mesmo local. Se foi bem sucedido uma vez, pode ser que nessa região ocorram avistamentos de UFOs/naves com regularidade, talvez por razões específicas desconhecidas, e talvez possa ser novamente bem sucedido. Pode também desejar voltar ao mesmo lugar a horas diferentes do dia (durante as horas de luz)para ter uma orientação e referência melhor. Filme apenas um ,inuto ou dois em circunstâncias “normais” para ter um termo de comparação. Escreva tudo o que viu imediatamente após o acontecimento. Logo após ter feito o registo da experiência/acontecimento, escreva imediatamente as impressões, memórias, pensamentos, emoções, etc para que fiquem registadas por escrito. Se houver outras testemunhas, peça-lhes para registar independentemente as suas próprias impressões, pensamentos, etc. Inclua quaisquer desenhos, esbolos, diagramas. Certifique-se que data e assina o seu documento/testemunho.

Always be prepared. Have a digital camera or better yet a video camera with you, charged and ready to go, at all times. Make sure you know how to use your camera (and your cell phone video/photo camera) quickly and properly. These events can occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and often quite randomly, so you will need to be prepared.

Esteja sempre preparado, Tenha sempre uma camera digital, melhor ainda, uma camera vídeo consigo, carregada e pronta a usar sempre que necessário. Certifique-se que sabe como lidar com a sua camera (ou com o seu celular/camera fotográfica) rápida e adequadamente. Esses acontecimentos podem acontecer súbita e inesperadamente e, por vezes, acidentalmente, por isso, necessita estar preparado.

Look up. Be prepared. Report. Share.

Olhe para cima, Esteja preparado, Relate, Partilhe.
