It sounds like you are just throwing random, unrelated subjects out there in hopes of convincing people. I would be more willing to entertain your theories if you were more specific. What ancient things, ancient machines? What about the bible? What reptilian underground civilization?
I do, as you do, believe there are mysteries out there that prove that we actually know very little about our own history and possibly origins but you aren't going to change minds with vague reference to items pulled from the internet.
You say you are attacking "close mindedness" well if all you have are ideas picked up from internet searches isn't it close minded not to at least consider that the human brain developed naturally? It is a possibility...isn't it?
Being open-minded I will concede that there is a possibility that the human mind may have been genetically altered in our past by aliens but I have no proof and I will not just believe it simply because it was suggested on Ancient Aliens. If you have evidence if it let me know.

It's a bit of a mystery, as to how South American Shamans manage to discover the right combinations of plants to produce the desired effect.
South America has an estimated 90,000 different species of plants.
Yet, the Shamans manage to find up to half a dozen plants, among these 90,000 that when mixed together in the right quantities go on to produce a medicinal or curatitive effect.
Quite how they manage to isolate exactly the right plants from such a varied and massive garden, is the mystery.
There are reports though, that give tantalising clues that the Shamans are accessing heireditary memory, a memory that is composed of EVERY generation in the Shaman's family line.
Yes, it sounds far fetched, but research is beginning to show that such a genetic memory actually exists, and is under very particular circumstances available to be examined and interrogated for information gathered and learned by the generations of our particular bloodlines that came before us.
The memory is said to be encoded, digitally, in our DNA. Specifically, the 90%+ of our DNA that science thinks serves no purpose, and so call 'Junk DNA'...i theorise it's anything but junk.
The Shaman goes into a trance-like state (drug induced) and is able to speak to his or her 'spirit guides' for advice. A lot of the time, the spirit guide is in the form of an animal...a snake quite often.
What does a coiled snake resemble?
The Shaman is actually accessing memories and experience learned by his genertic ancestors, who memories were passed down to him ecoded in the DNA package donated to him when he is conceived in the womb.
This can explain 'reincarnation memories' or flashes of memory of a past life...but the past life isn't yours, it's the accidental triggering of the memory of the life lived, and stored digitally in DNA that was ultimately passed on to all of us.
Imagine what we could learn if we could find an easy and efficient method to access these stored 'lives' and memories encoded in our own bodies!
We may even discover memories of being elsewhere...or coming from elsewhere...which would mean that our ancestors, in the remote past - perhaps hundreds of thousands of years ago..were the aliens.

Not alien contact....The plants themselves told the shamans or medicine-men what to use....
