Ummo is a blanket term to describe a series of decades-long claims that aliens from the planet Ummo were communicating with persons on the earth. Most Ummo information was in the form of many detailed documents and letters sent to various esoteric groups or UFO enthusiasts. The Ummo affair was subject to much mainstream attention in France and Spain during the 1960's and 1970's, and a degree of interest remains regarding the subject.
General consensus is that the entire affair was an elaborate hoax. The culprit (or culprits) are unknown, but a Jose Luis Jordan Pena has claimed responsibility for instigating the Ummo affair.
However, some contend there may be at least a measure truth in the matter, and there are a few small groups of devotees, such as "a strange Bolivian cult called the Daughters of Ummo" . Regardless of any ultimate explanation, the Ummo affair is one of the most intriguing (and most detailed) UFO-related events in recent decades. Dr. Jacques Vallee has the Ummo documents might be a real-world analogue of the fictional creators of Borges' "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius".
The Ummites write that they first visited Earth in 1950 as a small group of scientist-explorers. Their goals were the study of our biosphere, atmosphere and culture. They explain how they discovered the Earth by chance, thanks to a Morse radio message sent by a Norwegian ship 15 years ago prior to their landing, and also describe scientific data from their planetary system, including its gravity, orbit, revolution period, sizes, information about their star.
The Ummites were amazed, seeing our multi-cultural society, and also the social disorder so prevalent on Earth. They explain their civilization is older than ours, with appropraitely advanced technology, and they will not disturb our social evolution.
About fifteen letters describe living conditions on their planet in painstaking detail, with many pictures. They give their society the term "social network" and explain that it is an enormous and dynamic network, where each person is a knot, and each relationship between people is a dynamic arc. In this way they describe their daily life: their housing, the importance of perfumes to their culture, their supply network, their cooking and food, work, games, family, their mode of transport, sex, their education system, psychology, marriage, arts, "the concept of God", their history, different governmental steps they have known, and the discovery of other planets having life.
Philosophy and "the concept of God" are strongly featured in the Ummo letters. Several letters are devoted entirely to these subjects. Also mentioned are Ummites' morals, ethics, human being's free will, man's role in the universe, the end of existence, the soul, the collective unconscious (or collective soul as the Ummites call it). In several letters the Ummites discuss Earth's problems, including abortion, the oppression of women by men, and problems they see in or education and political systems.
Many scientific subjects are described in detail, including network theory (or graph theory), astrophysics or cosmology), the unified field theory , biology, and evolution. Some of this information is dubious pseudoscience, but some of it is alleged to be accurate. Presuming some of this specialised knowledge is accurate, it's been suggested that a group of university students may be involved in an elaborate, extended prank by writing the Ummo letters.

Musclor do you know if they are still getting new documents?
I thought it ended in the 90's.

Something else struck me; isnt morse code long wave radio signals, thus they never leave the Earth but just bounces between the atmosphere and the ground, this is why you can hear morse code on the other side of the Earth even though the Earth is round. I dont think morse code ever leaves the atmosphere and thus could not have been picked up by ET.

These roots are nothing less than the biogenetic bases of evolution [...]The adult has a different psychology than a child or a teenager of group. [...]but remember that the current Earth human, just like the OEMII of UMMO, is a continually evolving being.
the appearance of the first anthropoides and the present is much longer on UMMO than it is on Earth.
You know that all animal and vegetable matter is made of millions of cells. Using Earth terminology, we remind you that in these cells there are four elements or major parts. A complex mass called PROTOPLASM. A central mass called NUCLEUS. A membrane which surrounds the cell.
A membrane which surrounds the NUCLEUS.
O [This O no doubt refers to FIG 4? Scanning technician's note ] represents the RIBOSE bond which distinguishes it from DNA
But Earth biochemists ask themselves the following question: why do these mutations (these accidental phenomena which modify the code of life) always result in a positive change (orthogenesis),
They [mutations] should on the contrary bring about a genetic aberration, thus creating a monstrous being with atrophied arms or without lungs!
This axis also described a harmonic vibratory motion whose frequency and amplitude varied with temperature
. As you know, electrons occupy instantaneous positions governed by probability in each subatomic level
The impact, if it does not rupture the chromosome, brings about at the very least a change in the nucleotide sequence. It then changes their interpreted meaning and we can say that a MUTATION occurred.
little like an Earth dictionary or a manual (for a pair of 86 atoms); a page of this dictionary of 43 sheets where ALL POSSIBLE SHAPES OF LIVING BEINGS compatible with the universal biogenetic laws are catalogued.
Initially, it COLLECTS information coming from the cellular cytoplasm by codifying it temporally
Let us take a living being which is familiar to you: the crab. You know that one the species, very common to the American coast, has a blue shell due to the colour of certain rocks covered with a bluish algae. How did the crab get to be this colour?
in the case of our Galaxy

fequency 424? What strange things did it do. I, personally don't find it strange what so ever that an alien species could pick up a transmission such as morse code. Even if it is earth bound I would imagine they would have sensors that could pick it up. If they have the power to cross the star's then why not that?
Intersting, anyone found any of these pics?
But no workable new science from it eh?
