Lesson One; How to recognize an Alien

This may seem easy but it's surprising how many people struggle with it, in an example below we see a representation of your average Female human and an Alien, can you tell which is which...?!?...for those struggling the Alien wears an environmental protection suit.



Of course humans also wear environmental protection suits quite similar today, but they didn't 7,000 years ago...



Lesson Two; How to avoid judging by appearance.

Different is not necessarily bad, as might be expected Aliens look different than humans but this doesn't mean they're horrible, especialy if they are teaching you incredible things.


But also scary does sometimes have it's advantages...


Lesson Three; The importance of Connections

Everybody already knows this as it relates to family, but taking this a whole lot further helps one to appreciate even those who have come from distant worlds to lend a hand and see how you're getting on, extended family.


Even Gods have families, it's just one of those things...

Lesson Four; Learn to Read and Write

Learning the importance of signs and symbols helps to communicate ideas and knowledge, doesn't really matter what symbol you use but if you can relate it to something familiar this helps, for example you could just develop a language copying off the patterns on the environmental suits.


Once you have learnt how to do this go and impress others...

Lesson Five; Make lots of interesting things.

This will help to expand your mind, don't be afraid to copy off nature as everybody does, it's not cheating, learn to see pattern progression and development and this will also help you along with your writing.


Get really good at this you can build your own Death Star...

Lesson Six; Make lots of useful things.

The more you consider the more useful things you will come up with, you'll invent chairs and tables and beds and all manner of wonderfully designed objects, this will increase the quality of your life.


All work together and you can even build pyramids, they're really useful...

Lesson Seven; The importance of team work.

If you're going to build all these fantastic things you'll need resources and lots of them, this requires effort and team work so get organized, make sure everyone has a tool and knows what they're doing.


It will prove helpful in allocating specific Deities to each group for team spirit building...

Lesson Eight; The importance of belief.

Believing in what you're doing and how this is connected to everything else is important, it's good to build special places to come together and remind yourselves of the singular purpose behind everything.


Don't forget to use those little symbols you learnt also...

Lesson Nine; Keep striving for improvement.

Don't be easily discouraged and lose belief, there are always ways to improve things and make your lives better, remember to always help and involve others and great things can be achieved.


Even if you can't yet make a motorbike there are always horses...

Lesson Ten; The endless horizon.

As you progress new horizons and opportunities will arise, keep advancing forward, doors are there to be opened and your only enemy is fear and doubt, always embrace change that is for the better.


Even if you can't yet make a stargate there is always Disneyland.

Nice extrapolation. In my own mind many of the "figurines" are stylized due to less skilled artisans plying a trade in less civilized cultures. If they appear human like, maybe that was their intent?

Very few craftsman and artists have the skill to render near perfect replicas of their subjects.

Just one example

But the good ones intent is obvious. Their subjects are living earth creatures and human beings.

Now, if Michael Angelo had produced a good facsimile of a grey in his time…

Not saying the visitors aren't, just that its hard to tell what represents that and what is just representative of Earthen forms.

Not sure if comparing the figures to the pink power ranger is going to help your alien theory mate.

Nonetheless, cool figurines! And I do enjoy the ancient alien theory I am only poking fun.

Not necessarily. There's a lot of art out there where the object is not to make a perfect likeness of the shape and size of human features. Ever see impressionistic paintings? A lot those artists started out doing lifelike portraits before the impressionism trend. Sometimes the object is just to make something unique and personally aesthetic--a reflection of the artist and the culture as a whole.

********

However, I think that showing a power ranger suit in a similar pose to archaeological artifacts is a far cry from proving ancient alien influences.

OP, star for the Power Rangers bounce castle.

That was lesson one, same culture place and period producing the likeness of a woman which is clearly recognizable yet in conjunction with others that aren't yet of good quality. There are a surprising number of 'firsts' in Vinca figurines, the genre of portraiture, the Madonna and child, all naturalistic.

In terms of cultural transmission from these early figurines over thousands of years the figures become a little more anthropomorphic and vague, but the best of the Vinca (and Jomon) raise all sorts of questions.

As it's now generally considered the earliest writing dates to this region of SE Europe and that this appears to have transmitted to Uruk and Proto-Sumerian, this raises the question that the tradition of the Apkallu, the Heavenly sages bringers of knowledge also refer back to that place and time.

Interesting thread OP Kantzveldt... The thing that I found most interesting was the learn to copy some of the signs/symbols you may see on some of the environment suits the Ancients wore and then communicate & write about it amongst others. Sounds like a way to make @ spread languages... And it would help future generations who encountered the artifacts with the symbols and signs, if they were to ever get a chance to see the origins of the signs symbols again
very interesting share there Kantzveldt.

Thanks for allowing your open mind on the subject of ET/ALIENS to be transmitted amongst others through your thread OPs 1 enjoyed. its nice to see fear of being doubted or ignored isn't an issue with you.

The one thing Ancient Aliens taught me was not to take anything an Ancient Aliens theorist says seriously.

Yes there is connectivity between the patterns on the suits, those seen upon the artifacts such as furniture and the first signs developed, a sort of cultural branding, and thus the figurines are associated with the development of writing.



Doubted and ignored you sort of get used too and learn to enjoy...



a reply to: gortex

I think generally that series was created in order to allay fears with laughter, to increase public awareness yet not make an actual credible case, oh and make lots of money.

I said stylized… same thing, I think?

Ones impression or stye is developed making their work unique. In the case of rough hewn features from unknown artists they may exaggerate features of their particular culture. Elongated heads for instance. Like the head wrappers, foot binders and today, tattoo artists.

I can make art from egg crates, that doesn't make me an artist, imo.

Then again, bury a mickey mouse watch and ten thousand years from now it will be priceless.

Also don't get me wrong, I have seen a craft with these eyes, I know they exist. Just not sure about the alien connection with rough featured figurines.

So.... Ancient human artifacts, therefore aliens? Also...Power Rangers?

Sorry but I'm just not seeing it. Just because ancient cultures crafted things that may look strange to your modern eyes does not automatically mean they are space helmets.

For instance:

I see a stylized human bust. Nothing more.

Picasso was just flogging third rate adaptations of African tribal art and masks, it was more about social deconstruction of Western values than it ever was about the art, a conspiracy of art dealers and critics, these are Neolithic pieces 7,000 years old, so you need to keep things in perspective, first lesson in art...


a reply to: DeadSeraph

The Power Rangers are there to draw attention to the seemingly anomalous absurdity that Neolithic figures are seen to be wearing full protection suits, and i gave the control check image of the woman with bowl who doesn't appear to be wearing much, many of the figures are in natural poses and so the question needs to be answered how can they be wearing such items, that are consistently seen on Jomon figures (seen below left) and the comparative Vinca figures to the right, my conclusion is that is what they were seeing.
















Two cultures widely seperated in SE Europe and NE Asia 7,000 years ago producing the same remarkable representations is not something that can be simply dismissed and it's an injustice to those artists who progressed leaps and bounds in the production of these figurines from anything that had gone before, they recorded important events so perhaps try taking them seriously?

The power rangers suit isn't a protection suit, it's a costume, and I think you inadvertently made the opposite point of the point you tried to make.

Maybe 7000 years ago they wore costumes, like the power rangers costume, and in neither case is it about environmental protection.

Aren't the neolithic figures depicted wearing clothes (a form of environmental protection), tattoos, body decoration etc rather than 'space suits'?

Consider also that some decorated figurative artefacts were for practical use, for example in rituals, as childrens toys, dolls etc and the decoration for the purpose of being decorative, even some animal figurines are depicted with similar decoration, as are pots and functional items.

a reply to: theabsolutetruth

There is certainly cultural branding going on with the patterns related to the suits, as you say it can also be seen on animal figurines and other artifacts, also as i suggested the formative signs and symbols seem to be related, but it depends which came first, did the obsession with such pattern develop through seeing it in remarkable context and then this leading to body marking on the part of those who were associating themselves with tradition that developed from a strange encounter, it's a question of sourcing the primary motivation.

The suits themselves in the better quality pieces are certainly not representation of body marking, and the figures wear actual masks or helmets as generally hair/mouth/ears/eye detail is not seen, yet they appear sitting in natural pose without any ritualistic connotations or cultic objects, the male figures have no fertility characteristics, suggesting very much as seen.




a reply to: Arbitrageur


Yes maybe that's it, 7,000 years ago people dressed up like Power Rangers, though were they bought the gear remains a mystery, i'd love to see a historical reconstruction site were all the villagers appear dressed that way, would confuse the hell out the tourists...
