The Children of Agni

So, when looking up some of the cryptids, people will see somethings like "Bigfoot", "Dogmen" or "reptilians" etc. Although, some of those are interesting to look at, however, I find the mysterious "Men in Black" to be very interesting in comparison. When looking up on Youtube's "John Keel The Men in Black (1989), details some interesting tales. Of course, he mentions the book "The King of the World" (See "King of the world"), and how the King of the World would send his agents to the surface world. This is also mentioned from the author "Ferdinand Ossendowski", and Rene' Guenon. 

Here are some excerpts on the late great John Keel from the Wiki:

"John Alva Keel, born Alva John Kiehle (March 25, 1930 – July 3, 2009) was an American journalist and influential UFOlogist who is best known as author of The Mothman Prophecies. Keel was born in Hornell, New York, the son of a small-time bandleader. His parents separated and he was raised by his grandparents. He was interested in magic and had his first story published in a magicians' magazine at age 12. He left school at the age of 16 after taking all the science courses. He worked as a freelance contributor to newspapers, scriptwriter for local radio and television outlets, and author of pulp articles such as "Are You A Repressed Sex Fiend?"

"He served in the US Army during the Korean War on the staff of the American Forces Network at Frankfurt, Germany. He claimed that while in the Army he was trained in psychological warfare as a propaganda writer. After leaving the military he worked as a foreign radio correspondent in Paris, Berlin, Rome and Egypt. In 1957, he published Jadoo, a book describing his time in Egypt and India investigating the Indian rope trick and the legendary yeti. In 1966 he produced the "spy and superhero" spoof novel The Fickle Finger of Fate."

"Influenced by writers such as Charles Fort, he began contributing articles to Flying Saucer Review and took up investigating UFOs and assorted Forteana as a full-time pursuit. Keel analyzed what he called "windows" and "waves" (or flaps, as they are often called) of reported UFO events, concluding that a disproportionate number occurred on Wednesdays and Saturdays. A member of the Screenwriters Guild, Keel reportedly wrote scripts for Get Smart, The Monkees, Mack & Myer for Hire, and Lost in Space. In 1967, Keel popularized the term "men In black" in an article for the men's adventure magazine Saga, entitled "UFO Agents of Terror".

"Rejection of Extraterrestrial hypothesis Like contemporary 1960s researchers such as J. Allen Hynek and Jacques Vallée, Keel was initially hopeful that he could somehow validate the prevailing extraterrestrial visitation hypothesis. However, after one year of investigations, Keel concluded that the extraterrestrial hypothesis was untenable. Indeed, both Hynek and Vallée eventually arrived at a similar conclusion. As Keel himself wrote: I abandoned the extraterrestrial hypothesis in 1967 when my own field investigations disclosed an astonishing overlap between psychic phenomena and UFOs..."

"The objects and apparitions do not necessarily originate on another planet and may not even exist as permanent constructions of matter. It is more likely that we see what we want to see and interpret such visions according to our contemporary beliefs. In UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse Keel argues that a non-human or spiritual intelligence source has staged whole events over a long period of time in order to propagate and reinforce certain erroneous belief systems."

"For example, monsters, ghosts and demons, the fairy faith in Middle Europe, vampire legends, mystery airships in 1897, mystery aeroplanes of the 1930s, mystery helicopters, anomalous creature sightings, poltergeist phenomena, balls of light, and UFOs. Keel conjectured that ultimately all of these anomalies are a cover for the real phenomenon.[full citation needed] He used the term "ultraterrestrials" to describe UFO occupants he believed to be non-human entities capable of taking on whatever form they want."

"In Our Haunted Planet, Keel discussed the seldom-considered possibility that the alien "visitors" to Earth are not visitors at all, but an advanced Earth civilization, which may or may not be human. Interdimensional life is also considered.[citation needed] Keel took no position on the ultimate purpose of the phenomenon other than that the UFO intelligence seems to have a long-standing interest in interacting with the human race."

Now, based from the information of the late great John Keel, he would research some books on these underground worlds like "Rene' Guenon's the King of the World" and the Shaver Mysteries, just to name a couple (See "King of the World"). In the Shaver mysteries, (which detailed the adventures of Heroes battling the underground beings called "Deros", and other such subjects like Atlantis and Lemuria) was was said to be idealized by Richard Shaver and Illustrated and edited by Ray Palmer.

Although, some topics based on Shaver's background would be questionable based on where he gets these ideas, however, I find some interesting connections based certain races that was described in his books. Now, from his works would state of beings called "Deros" (which means Detrimental robots), and the beings called the Teros, who are said to be the good beings.

Now, from the Wiki states this: "Deros, also known as "Detrimental Robots" (not because they are mechanical machines, but because they are a humanoid race which have become robot-like slaves to their own sadism and hedonism); comparable to H.G. Wells' Morlocks from "The Time Machine". The Deros resemble, fearfully aenemic jitterbugs, small, with pipestem arms and legs, pot bellies, huge protruding eyes and wide, idiotically grinning mouths. Super-goofy, I believe modern youth would call them.... - Richard Sharpe Shaver, Formula from the Underworld".

"Shaver described Deros as an ancient race of aliens living in caverns under the earth who, taking shelter from the harmful effects of the Sun's radiation (which interferes with the Deros' immortality), have slowly gone insane in the dark, damp caverns and vaults deep in the earth, and are responsible for tragedies, insanities, bad luck, nightmares, hauntings, demonic oppression, and alien abduction on the surface world, because sadism is the last pleasure left to these degenerate beings. Clothed in rags and dirt, hung all over with hand weapons, their hair long and matted, were the strangest, most disgusting creatures I had ever seen in my life. They were dwarfs, some of them white-haired, from the Gods know what hidden hole in Mu's endless warren of caverns."

"The Dero civilization has long ago collapsed into a degenerate, nightmare decadence. Fleeing the sun's life-draining rays in Earth's distant past into caverns and vaults deep in the Earth, the immortal Deros have been slowly degenerating in the dark and damp among their rusting machinery into twisted, sadistic, insane cannibal gnomes whose last source of pleasure is torture and mayhem inflicted upon those mortal creatures who enjoy the sunlight."

"The array of deteriorating machinery left in Earth's shadowy vaults for the Deros to amuse themselves with include flying saucers and a bewildering variety of surgical machines and rays for manipulating matter and minds from a distance. The ray machines include technology that the Deros use to cause disasters and start wars, kidnap surface-dwellers via levitation, cause people to hear voices and see hallucinations, control minds and moods through remote hypnosis, spy on conversations, cause instant deaths and slow and painful deaths, mutilate cattle, contact and conspire with other alien races, and many other hostile, disturbing and upsetting interactions with surface-dwelling humans."

"In addition to the Deros, the caverns of their underworld are crowded with the Deros' human slaves, as well as cartels of human henchmen, mercenaries, collaborators, cultists, and customers who willingly cooperate with the Deros' schemes for various unsavory reasons of their own, and each major city has beneath its streets a literal underworld peopled by gangsters and cultists employed by the Deros for the purpose of gathering slaves and otherwise carrying out the Deros' dirty work on the surface world, with many of the cities' runaways, homeless, and other lost causes who would not be missed kidnapped by their fellow humans and "sold down the shaft" to monstrous Dero sadists and cannibals waiting below, for Deros have developed a taste for human flesh, and their human collaborators are skillful and capable of supplying it in great quantities."

"Most cities have even developed a literal underground secret industry of kidnapping human victims and using them as voluntary or involuntary breeding stock by forcing them to breed with other human victims, and even with various inhuman monsters to produce foodstock in exotic and exciting flavors and endless mongrel variety for the tables of Dero feasts, as well as the torture chambers of Dero entertainments."

"Dero tampering to stir up unrest, chaos, and war on the surface world via their ray technology, along with the efforts of their collaborators in the governments and the militaries of every nation, have sparked many a war whose sole purposes are to generate misery, death, and destruction on the surface world, while supplying large populations of victims who are diverted into underground "shelters" for "safety", into the waiting clutches of the Deros, never to be seen or heard from again, to be counted among the war's countless, faceless victims."

Now, does the "Dero" ring any bells? 

When describing the "Deros", Shaver states this: "Shaver described Deros as an ancient race of aliens living in caverns under the earth who, taking shelter from the harmful effects of the Sun's radiation (which interferes with the Deros' immortality), have slowly gone insane in the dark, damp caverns and vaults deep in the earth, and are responsible for tragedies, insanities, bad luck, nightmares, hauntings, demonic oppression, and alien abduction on the surface world, because sadism is the last pleasure left to these degenerate beings. Clothed in rags and dirt, hung all over with hand weapons, their hair long and matted, were the strangest, most disgusting creatures I had ever seen in my life. They were dwarfs, some of them white-haired, from the Gods know what hidden hole in Mu's endless warren of caverns."

"The array of deteriorating machinery left in Earth's shadowy vaults for the Deros to amuse themselves with include flying saucers and a bewildering variety of surgical machines and rays for manipulating matter and minds from a distance. The ray machines include technology that the Deros use to cause disasters and start wars, kidnap surface-dwellers via levitation, cause people to hear voices and see hallucinations, control minds and moods through remote hypnosis, spy on conversations, cause instant deaths and slow and painful deaths, mutilate cattle, contact and conspire with other alien races, and many other hostile, disturbing and upsetting interactions with surface-dwelling humans."

"In addition to the Deros, the caverns of their underworld are crowded with the Deros' human slaves, as well as cartels of human henchmen, mercenaries, collaborators, cultists, and customers who willingly cooperate with the Deros' schemes for various unsavory reasons of their own, and each major city has beneath its streets a literal underworld peopled by gangsters and cultists employed by the Deros for the purpose of gathering slaves and otherwise carrying out the Deros' dirty work on the surface world, with many of the cities' runaways, homeless, and other lost causes who would not be missed kidnapped by their fellow humans and "sold down the shaft" to monstrous Dero sadists and cannibals waiting below, for Deros have developed a taste for human flesh, and their human collaborators are skillful and capable of supplying it in great quantities."

This is "exactly" what Richard Hall's "UFO NATO: Human mutilation cover-up" is based on (See "Galactic Warfare"). Now, how did Richard Shaver know about the "Cattle Mutilations?" This further connects from what the Military man had stated, that these E.T.s look like the "Devil". 

Now, the "Teros" and the "Deros" are merely the "Peri" and the "Div" (Dev). Based from the information given to Richard Hall by the Military source, states these clues (See "Galactic Warfare"). They look like the "Devil", they are extremely fast and strong, and they are not friendly at all. He also states that these mutilations have been going "before we were here", indicates that this is based on the "Pre-Adamite" races. Let's observe Madame Blavatsky's statements on the being called Iblis.

Here is an excerpt from Madame Blavatsky's "Secret Doctrine": Origin of the Satanic Myth: "[[Vol. 2, Page]] 394 THE SECRET DOCTRINE. Before the creation of Adam, two races lived and succeeded each other on Earth; the Devs who reigned 7,000 years, and the Peris (the Izeds) who reigned but 2,000, during the existence of the former. The Devs were giants, strong and wicked; the Peris were smaller in stature, but wiser and kinder."

"Here we recognize the Atlantean giants and the Aryans, or the Rakshasas of the Ramayana and the children of Bharata Varsha, or India; the ante- and the post-diluvians of the Bible. Gyan (or rather Gnan, true or occult Wisdom and knowledge), also called Gian-ben-Gian (or Wisdom, son of Wisdom), was the king of the Peris.*"

"He had a shield as famous as that of Achilles, only instead of serving against an enemy in war, it served as a protection against black magic, the sorcery of the Devs. Gian-ben-Gian had reigned 2,000 years when Iblis, the devil, was permitted by God to defeat the Devs and scatter them to the other end of the world. Even the magic shield, which, produced on the principles of astrology, destroyed charms, enchantments, and bad spells, could not prevail against Iblis, who was an agent of Fate (or Karma)." Let's break this down. She mentions the "Peris" and the "Devs", let's see what the Wiki states on these two beings:

"Peri (Persian: پری‎, plural پريان pariān), otherwise known as Pari in Persian culture, are exquisite, winged spirits renowned for their beauty. Originally from Persian mythology, Paris were later adopted by other cultures. They are described as mischievous beings that have been denied entry to paradise until they have completed penance for atonement. Under Islamic influence, Peris became benevolent spirits, in contrast to the mischievous jinn and divs."

In Persian mythology and literature: "Paris are detailed in Persianate folklore and poetry, appearing in romances and epics. Furthermore, later poets use the term to designate a beautiful woman and to illustrate her qualities. At the start of Ferdowsi's epic poem Shahnameh, "The Book of Kings", the divinity Sorush appears in the form of a pari to warn Keyumars (the mythological first man and shah of the world) and his son Siamak of the threats posed by the destructive Ahriman. Paris also form part of the mythological army that Kaiumers eventually draws up to defeat Ahriman and his demonic son."

"In the Rostam and Sohrab section of the poem, Rostam's paramour, the princess Tahmina, is referred to as "pari-faced" (since she is wearing a veil, the term pari may include a secondary meaning of disguise or being hidden[dubious – discuss]). Paris were the target of a lower level of evil beings called دیوسان divs (دَيۋَ daeva), who persecuted them by locking them in iron cages. This persecution was brought about by, as the divs perceived it, the paris' lack of sufficient self-esteem to join the rebellion against perversion."

Islamic culture: "With the spread of Islam through Persia, the pari (or peri in Turkish) was integrated into Islamic folklore. Early Persian translations of the Quran, identified the good jinn as peris, and the evil ones with divs. The belief in Pari still persist among Muslims in India as a type of spiritual creature besides the jinn, shayatin and the ghosts of the wicked. Turkish Muslims often accept the existence of paris among other creatures, such as jinn, ifrit (ghosts or demons of hell), nakir, div (ogres or fiends) and shayatin (demons or devils). According to the Persian exegesis of the Qurʼan Tafsir al-Tabari, the paris are beautiful female spirits created by God after the vicious divs. They mostly believe in God and are benevolent to mankind."

"They are still part of some folklore and accordingly they appear to humans, sometimes punishing hunters in the mountains who are disrespectful or waste resources, or even abducting young humans for their social events. Encounters with paris are held to be physical as well as psychological. Marriage, although possible, is considered undue in Islamic lore. Because of humans impatience and distrust, relationship between humans and paris will break up. Bilqis is, according to one narrative, the daughter of such a failed relationship between a pari and a human."

This is where Richard Shaver would get the "Teros" as Peri, which Blavatsky states is the "kinder" and benevolent race compared to the "Deros".

Then on the Devs: "Div or dev (Persian: Dīv: دیو) are monstrous creatures within Middle Eastern lore. They have their origin in Persian mythology and spread to surrounding cultures including Armenia, Turkic countries and Albania. Although they are not explicitly mentioned within canonical Islamic scriptures, their existence was well accepted by most Muslims just like that of other supernatural creatures."

"They are described as having a body like that of a human, only of gigantic size, with two horns upon their heads and teeth like the tusks of a boar. Powerful, cruel and cold-hearted they have a particular relish for the taste of human flesh. Some use only primitive weapons, such as stones : others, more sophisticated, are equipped like warriors, wearing armour and using weapons of metal. Despite their uncouth appearance - and in addition to their great physical strength - many are also masters of sorcery, capable of overcoming their enemies by magic and afflicting them with nightmares. Their origin is disputed, although it may lie in the Vedic deities (devas) who were later demonized in Persian religion (see daeva)."

"In Ferdowsi's tenth-century Shahnameh, they are already the evil entities endowed with roughly human shape and supernatural powers familiar from later folklore, in which the Divs are described as ugly demons with supernatural strength and power, who, nonetheless, may sometimes be subdued and forced to do the bidding of a sorcerer."

Legends: "Div appear throughout many supernatural legends as villains, sorcerers, monsters, ogres or even helpers of the protagonist. It is usually necessary to overcome the Div, to get his aid. After defeating the Div, one must attach a horseshoe, a needle or an iron ring on his body to enslave them. On the other hand, a Div can not be killed by physical combat, even if their body parts are cut off. Instead, it is required to find the object storing the soul of the Div. After the object is destroyed, the Div is said to disappear in smoke or thin air. The notion of a demon tied to a physical object, later inspired the European genie."

"According to pre-historic Persian legends, the Divs once roamed the earth until Zoraster chased them away to the underground. Since when, they do not appear visible on earth again and live secretly in the underworld. Such legends have later been assimilated to Islamic legends, according to which the jinn lived on earth prior to humans, but have been chased away. However, here the heroic human is replaced by a group of angels. Accordingly, Div have been entrusted to govern the earth 70,000 years before the creation of the first human."

"However, God created between the Div and human, the jinn (taken from Islamic lore), ruled by Jann ibn Jann. However, when Jann ibn Jann challenged the heavens, Satan (Iblis) was sent with an army of angels to overthrow him. During this battle some treacherous Divs joined Satan and the angels. Again, at the end, the story assigns them to the underworld regions of hell, when the Divs follow Iblis' refusal to pay homage to the first human."

"In Kisekbasch Destani ("Story of the cut head"), a Turkish Sufi legend from the 13. or 14. Century, Ali encounters a beheaded men, whose head is still reciting the Quran. His wife has been captured and his child been devoured by a Div. Ali descends to the underworld to kill the Div. Here, he finds out, the Div further captured 500 Sunnites and the Div threats Ali, to destroy the holy cities of Mecca and Medina and destroy the legacy of Islam. After a battle, Ali manages to kill the Div, release the inmates, saves the devoured child and brings the severed head, with aid of Muhammad back to life."

So, based from the descriptions stated above, shows that "They are described as having a body like that of a human, only of gigantic size, with two horns upon their heads and teeth like the tusks of a boar. Powerful, cruel and cold-hearted they have a particular relish for the taste of human flesh. Some use only primitive weapons, such as stones : others, more sophisticated, are equipped like warriors, wearing armour and using weapons of metal. Despite their uncouth appearance - and in addition to their great physical strength - many are also masters of sorcery, capable of overcoming their enemies by magic and afflicting them with nightmares."

This is where the movie "Midnight Meat Train" by Clive Barker is based on, as people would sent others to be "food" for the underground dwellers.

Based from the movie "The Time Machine", I find it interesting that the creatures that would hunt the "Eloi" (Elohim?) are portrayed in a similar manner as the Neanderthals. Based from the Wiki Fandom states this: "The Morlocks are the main antagonists of the novel The Time Machine by the late H.G. Wells, and its film adaptations. They are an evil race that evolved from humans."

Original Novel: "In the original novel, the Morlocks evolved from minor social classes, who live on the streets or even beneath Earth's surface, while the ascendant class of society lived in high houses and evolved into Eloi. In the very far future, they rule and hunt Eloi. When the unnamed Time Traveller arrives, he fights them with fire, their greatest weakness, but, unlike some other adaptions, never completely defeats them."

The Time Machine (1960): "In the first movie adaption, the Morlocks are very similar to their novel counterparts, but their backstory is different: These Morlocks didn't evolve from lower social classes, but instead their existence was caused by wars that destroyed the civilization of the human race. They also have other tactics to lure humans into their underground world. This time, the Time Traveller is able to destroy their home with fire in the end."

The Time Machine (2002): "In the 2002 movie, the catastrophe that divided the Human race into Eloi and Morlocks wasn't an atomic war, but instead failed blasting operations on the Moon. These Morlocks do not fear the daylight and therefore act as an even higher threat. They are bred into castes: The Hunter-Morlocks, the Spy-Morlocks, and the Über-Morlock. He confronted Professor Alexander Hartdegen and gave him his time machine back, with which the Professor was able to destroy the Morlock-Cave, but afterwards couldn't return to his own time."

The Time Ships: "In this 1995 novel by Stephen Baxter, the Time Traveller arrives in another version of the future, where the Morlocks are intelligent and peaceful. Morlock Night In this 1979 novel by K.W.Jeter, the Morlocks are more intelligent and therefore also able to use the Time Machine themselves after they stole it."

Now, in one of the Shaver mystery covers would detail a alien being with a "nose or trunk of an elephant". And for some reason this being strangely connects to a character in the "Alien" universe called "Space Jockeys". Now, these space Jockeys would also appear to have a trunk like appearance as seen on the first Alien film which made it's debut in 1979, and in the comics as well, but then later on, it seems that they later become the "Engineer suits", as shown in the movie "Prometheus".

Whatever the movie or the comic lore states, there is some connection to the being shown on a Shaver mysteries book, and the Space Jockeys shown amongst "Aliens". Another interesting connection would be the Hindu elephant god Ganesha and his flute. Now, in the movie "Prometheus", would state the Engineers (these aliens appear to be tall, pale and bald looking) would play a flute in order to manipulate the mechanisms of their ship. Because they would wear the elephant shaped helmets, and thus would play the flute, it seems fitting that it pays homage to the Hindu God Ganesha.

So, Ridley Scott has to know something about these beings connections to the creation and of mankind. A slight mention would be the movie "Man of steel" by Zack Snyder, who shows the Kryptonians with a similar helmet to the Engineers of "Aliens". In one of H.P. Lovecraft's stories (Horror from the Hills) details an Elephant humanoid like being called "Chaugnar faugn", which is supposed to have been responsible for creating a race here on Earth. Why does this Elephant like being reoccur many times among the different mythos?

Ganesha (Sanskrit: गणेश, IAST): "Gaṇeśa, also known as Ganapati and Vinayaka, is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in the Hindu pantheon. His image is found throughout India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia (Java and Bali), Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, and Bangladesh and in countries with large ethnic Indian populations including Fiji, Guyana, Mauritius, and Trinidad and Tobago. Hindu denominations worship him regardless of affiliations."

"Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains and Buddhists. Although Ganesha has many attributes, he is readily identified by his elephant head. He is widely revered, more specifically, as the remover of obstacles and thought to bring good luck; the patron of arts and sciences; and the deva of intellect and wisdom. As the god of beginnings, he is honored at the start of rites and ceremonies. Ganesha is also invoked as a patron of letters and learning during writing sessions. Several texts relate mythological anecdotes associated with his birth and exploits."

"An elephant–headed anthropomorphic figure on Indo-Greek coins from the 1st century BCE has been proposed by some scholars to be "incipient Ganesha", while others have suggested Ganesha may have been an emerging deity in India and southeast Asia around the 2nd century CE based on the evidence from archaeological excavations in Mathura and outside India."

"Most certainly by the 4th and 5th centuries CE, during the Gupta period, Ganesha was well established and had inherited traits from Vedic and pre-Vedic precursors. Hindu mythology identifies him as the restored son of Parvati and Shiva of the Shaivism tradition, but he is a pan-Hindu god found in its various traditions."

"In the Ganapatya tradition of Hinduism, Ganesha is the supreme deity. The principal texts on Ganesha include the Ganesha Purana, the Mudgala Purana and the Ganapati Atharvashirsa. Brahma Purana and Brahmanda Purana are other two Puranic genre encyclopaedic texts that deal with Ganesh."

Kangiten: "Kangiten or Kankiten (Japanese: 歓喜天, "god of bliss"; Sanskrit (IAST): Nandikeśvara), also known as Binayaka (毘那夜迦; Skt. Vināyaka), Ganabachi (誐那鉢底, alternatively Ganahachi or Ganahattei; Skt. Gaṇapati), or more commonly, Shōten or Shōden (聖天, lit. "sacred god" or "noble god"), is a deva (ten) venerated mainly in the Shingon and Tendai schools of Japanese Buddhism who is the Buddhist equivalent of the Hindu god Ganesha. Although Kangiten (Shōten) and Ganesha share a common origin and a number of traits, there are also some marked differences between the two."

"For instance, the Buddhist Vinayaka was (at least at first) negatively portrayed as the creator of obstacles and the leader of a class of malignant demons who obstructed Buddhist practice called vinayakas, though later tradition made an attempt to distinguish between the vinayakas and their lord, who became seen as a manifestation of the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara (Kannon in Japanese) and/or the buddha Vairochana."

"Kangiten is popularly regarded as an extremely efficacious but at the same time a somewhat unpredictable god that should be approached with caution: he is said to grant all wishes (even impossible ones) without fail, but is also quick to curse those who do not show him proper reverence. Unlike his Hindu counterpart, whose image is prominently displayed in public, Kangiten is considered too sacred to be seen: images of the deity in temples are kept hidden from view, rituals centered on him are performed by qualified monks out of public sight, and lay devotees are discouraged from venerating iconographic depictions of the god at home."

"While he is sometimes depicted as an elephant-headed single male deity like Ganesha, he is more commonly portrayed as a male-female couple (both with elephant heads) standing in an embrace in an iconographic depiction known as the Dual(-bodied) Kangiten (双身歓喜天, Sōshin Kangiten) or the Embracing Kangiten."

As demon and deity: "Several theories have been advanced regarding the origins of the Hindu deity Ganesha, who first undisputably appears in the historical record in his classic form around the early 4th to 5th centuries CE. One theory is that Ganesha gradually came to prominence in connection with the Vinayakas, a group of four troublesome demons mentioned in the Manava-Grihyasutra (a text belonging to the Manava school of the Black (Krishna) Yajurveda) and the Mahabharata. Whereas in Hinduism Ganesha was regarded mainly as a remover of obstacles, Buddhists originally emphasized his destructive side as the creator of obstacles and his function as a demon king."

'Early instances of the name 'Vinayaka' in Buddhist texts for instance have a negative connotation, denoting a malignant being (or beings) who is both the cause and the symbolic representation of obstacles or impediments. A note in the Mahamayuri Vidyarajni Sutra[a] by the Tang period monk Yijing defines Vinayaka as an "obstructive deity" (障礙神, pinyin: zhàng'àishén; Japanese: shōgeshin) and notes his widespread worship in the west (i.e. India)."

"The Mahavairochana Tantra (also known as the Vairochanabhisambodhi Sutra) meanwhile speaks of demonic entities such as vinayakas and rakshasas being dispersed through the power of mantra. The monk Yi Xing, in his commentary on this text,[b] describes vinayakas as obstructions produced from a deluded mind (從妄想心生)."

"In esoteric Buddhist literature, Vinayaka is portrayed as the enemy of the ritual practitioner who is to be either expelled with mantras or soothed with ritual offerings, which are then consumed by the practitioner to increase his strength; once duly propitiated he turns into the practitioner's ally, a protecting deity who removes all impediments. Vinayaka - also known under the name 'Vighnaraja' (Vighnarāja), "Lord of Obstacles" - is sometimes also shown being trampled on by wrathful deities like Mahakala or Achala in Tibetan and East Asian Buddhist art."

"The emergence of Esoteric (Tantric) Buddhism and its spread to Nepal, Tibet, and eventually to East Asia saw Vinayaka acquire a more positive role as a subjugator of demons. In Tibet, the deity was worshiped for the removal of obstacles and the granting of wealth and was at times portrayed as a wrathful, multiarmed deity wielding weapons."

"A Nepalese text provides a list of spells invoking Ganapati to not only bestow wealth but also to cause harm to enemies. Vinayaka is also depicted in a wall painting in Mogao Cave 285 in Dunhuang as a protector of Buddhism with the gods Maheshvara (Shiva) and Skanda."

Men in black on the Wiki states this: "In popular culture and UFO conspiracy theories, men in black (MIB) are supposed men dressed in black suits who claim to be quasi-government agents, who harass, threaten, or sometimes even assassinate Unidentified flying object (UFO) witnesses to keep them quiet about what they have seen. The term is also frequently used to describe mysterious men working for unknown organizations, as well as various branches of government allegedly tasked with protecting secrets or performing other strange activities."

"The term is generic, used for any unusual, threatening, or strangely behaved individual whose appearance on the scene can be linked in some fashion with a UFO sighting. Several alleged encounters with the men in black have been reported by UFO researchers and enthusiasts. Stories about men in black inspired the semicomic science-fiction Men in Black franchise, and an album by the Stranglers."

Folklore Folklorist: "James R. Lewis compares accounts of men in black with tales of people encountering Lucifer, and speculates that they can be considered a kind of "psychological drama".

"Ufologists Men in black figure prominently in ufology and UFO folklore. In the 1950s and 1960s, ufologists adopted a conspiratorial mindset and began to fear they would be subject to organized intimidation in retaliation for discovering "the truth of the UFOs."

"In 1947, Harold Dahl claimed to have been warned not to talk about his alleged UFO sighting on Maury Island by a man in a dark suit. In the mid-1950s, ufologist Albert K. Bender claimed he was visited by men in dark suits who threatened and warned him not to continue investigating UFOs. Bender maintained that the men in black were secret government agents who had been given the task of suppressing evidence of UFOs. Ufologist John Keel claimed to have had encounters with MIB and referred to them as "demonic supernaturals" with "dark skin and/or 'exotic' facial features."

"According to ufologist Jerome Clark, reports of men in black represent "experiences" that "don't seem to have occurred in the world of consensus reality." Historian Aaron Gulyas wrote, "during the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, UFO conspiracy theorists would incorporate the MIB into their increasingly complex and paranoid visions."

"Ufologist John Keel has argued that some MIB encounters can be explained as miscast entirely mundane events perpetuated through local folklore. In his 1975 book The Mothman Prophecies, Keel describes a late night outing in 1967 rural West Virginia where he himself was taken for an MIB while searching for a phone to call a tow truck."

"In his article, "Gray Barker: My Friend, the Myth-Maker," John C. Sherwood claims that, in the late 1960s, at the age of 18, he cooperated when Gray Barker urged him to develop a hoax—which Barker subsequently published—about what Barker called "blackmen", three mysterious UFO inhabitants who silenced Sherwood's pseudonymous identity, "Dr. Richard H. Pratt."

Based from the Website "mysteriousuniverse.org": Dan Aykroyd, UFOs, and the Men in Black Brent Swancer January 31, 2018.

"There are many facets of the UFO phenomenon, and many types of witnesses who have come forward with their own extraordinary tales. These often get lost in the deluge of such reports and indeed rantings, but sometimes there is a well-know and beloved celebrity who will come forward with their own accounts, theories, and experiences."

"These particular witnesses and spokespeople have a way of making people listen, somewhat reinvigorating the UFO debate in the process, and certainly one of the most vocal and well-known of these is none other than the popular Canadian-American actor, comedian, producer, screenwriter, musician and businessman Dan Ackroyd. Getting his start on the hit sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live and going on to star in such beloved classics as Ghostbusters, Aykroyd is a well-known name to many people. He also just happens to be a major proponent and researcher of UFOs with some truly bizarre tales to tell."

"Dan Aykroyd has never been shy about his intense interest in UFOs, and this seems to be a fascination that reaches all the way back into his childhood. The actor was fist enamored with the phenomenon when he saw a photo of mysterious lights over Capitol Hill from all the way back in 1952, an incident in which fighter planes had apparently been scrambled to chase the fast-moving objects off."

"This interest was only strengthened when he saw the classic sci-fi film The Day the Earth Stood Still, which he saw as a perfectly plausible scenario. Aykroyd would have the first of his own many close encounters with UFOs in the mid-1980s in upstate New York, when he claims that he woke up in the middle of the night in a panic and told his wife, “They are calling me, I want to go outside.”

"He claimed that he had had the irresistible compulsion to go outside, which he credits to voices in his head compelling him to do so. When he did go outside as instructed by the vices in his head he reported that he had seen a pink spiral over the Great Lakes area, and it would turn out that others had had the same urge to go outside at the same time and had seen the same thing."

"Aykroyd would go on to become a fairly hard-core proponent of UFOs, and he would eventually make a documentary on his interests, called Dan Aykroyd Unplugged on UFOs, in 2005, and he even served for several years as the official Hollywood representative of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), and he has accrued a vast knowledge of UFO research and lore over the years that would put most UFOlogists to shame."

"In April of 2010, Aykroyd appeared on the well-known TV show Larry King Live, where the topic was UFOs and Aykroyd appeared as a pro-UFO representative in the debate, among a panel of scientists who had been brought together to discuss the physicist Stephen Hawking’s assertion that any aliens coming from the stars would be certainly malevolent."

"Aykroyd shared some famous cases of UFO abductions, such as those of Travis Walton and Betty and Barney Hill, and on the show he stated: They are here, science should accept that they are here and look how they have come from a billion years in the future or the next dimension or wherever they are coming from. They have abducted people."

"Aykroyd has appeared on other shows about his UFO beliefs, such as a 2015 episode of The HuffPost Show with host Marc Lamont Hill, where the topic turned to the strange and he talked candidly about the U.S. Air Force’s UFO alleged cover-up and some details about his own personal UFO sightings. When asked if he truly believed in UFOs, Aykroyd answered: I do, absolutely, and I’m not alone."

"I have seen four, and I can’t say that they are alien craft and neither can the Air Force. The Air Force has been very interested in this. They don’t deny the existence of these hyperdynamic, super aerodynamic craft. They don’t deny. Their anguish comes in that they can’t tell you. They want to tell you anything but that they are extraterrestrial. Any excuse at all, even if they are unknown or unsolved."

"The Air Force cannot just come out and admit that there are extraterrestrial beings far in advanced of our culture that have built these machines. They are very interested in what is going on, but like us, they don’t know. I believe that there are probably many species coming and going and that the Air Force is very interested, but they can’t come out and say. Because then you’re going to go, ‘well wait a minute, the parish priest, the cop on the street, the President — you don’t got the power. They’ve got the power!’ You’d have complete breakdown of society. On the show, Aykroyd went on to give some further details into his own strange UFO sightings, saying: Two specifically were definitely aerial constructs of some kind. One of them with a light, and one of them dull gray, and they were structures – one of them going very slow, one of them hovering over me."

"Then there were the two that my wife and friends and I saw – a high altitude sighting many years ago in Martha’s vineyard. Two flying side by side. They were at about 100,000 feet up, and they were going fast. Aykroyd has also gone on and on about UFOs on his Facebook page, often referencing research and books and talking about his conspiratorial ideas about government cover-ups."

"He actively plugged the 2014 book The FBI-CIA-UFO Connection: The Hidden UFO Activities of USA Intelligence Agencies on his page, which goes over the vast research done on declassified documents by a physicist named Dr. Bruce Maccabee, who spent thirty-six years at the Naval Surface Warfare Center."

"Aykroyd would say in a Facebook post of the book thus: Ex-Naval Surface Warfare employee and physicist Dr. Bruce Maccabee has assembled the most extensively and meticulously researched body of documentary evidence ever compiled on the U.S. government’s genuine interest in the UFO phenomena."

"The USAF has NEVER denied the existence of these super-performance aerodynamic vehicles. The Air Force’s continued anguish over PUBLIC disclosure is not due to the military’s genuinely admitted reality of these machines’ existence but due to the government’s struggle to categorize the phenomena as being ANYTHING but extra planetary in origin."

Aykroyd also continuously praises and supports the organization called Mutual UFO Network (Mufon), for which he served as a consultant for a few years, and of who which he has said: Basically, [Mufon are] scientists from all kinds of disciplines that have formed this group to analyze what is real and what is a hoax."

"Now you could say every one of them is a fake – that footage of 200 whirling white dots in the sky, or the Phoenix Lights [a series of lights seen over Phoenix, Arizona, in 1997] – which 17,000 people saw – the Tinley Park sightings in Illinois, where whole suburbs saw these triangles and wedges go over at three miles an hour. Is it a mass hallucination? If so, why is it appearing on digital cameras and film? They’re coming and going like taxis."

"Although Aykroyd takes this research very seriously and can seemingly talk about it nonstop, he is still known to go off the deep end from time to time, to the point that even avid UFO fans might take pause, but which although fringe nevertheless seem just as well thought out as any other theories out there."

"When asked about why he thinks UFOs are here he has said: There’s that old theory that humankind and this planet were seen as the centre of the universe. That was thrown away – how could we be so presumptuous? Well, I subscribe to that. I think we are the centre of the universe and that is why they’re coming. They’re visiting because this is the planet that produced Picasso, the atom bomb, penicillin … there are so many advances in science, art and culture."

"They have technology better than ours, but they didn’t paint like Renoir, they don’t dance like Mick Jagger, they don’t write like Samuel Johnson or William Faulkner. They are envious of us. We have the most beautiful planet – the Rockies, the purple fields of the United States, the Lake District, the Pyrenees, the turquoise seas of the tropics. They don’t have that. They may have gelatinous pools and crystal mountains and they’ve got the technology to flip from planet to planet or dimension to dimension but, you know, Keith Richards didn’t come from there."

"I think there are possibly some hybrids here. I think many are here for good purposes and want to improve our planet but I think some are here for malevolent purposes. Probably extracting sperm and ova, or taking cow’s lips and anuses for delicacies, being cruel to animals, that kind of thing."

"Out of all of this, one of Aykroyd’s more bizarre tales is an incident in which he says he was confronted by the Men in Black, as he was talking to the singer Britney Spears of all people. Just before the cancellation of his TV show Out There, Aykroyd claims that he stepped out of the studio to take a call from Spears, who he had starred beside as her father in the film Crossroads. Britney Spears had called him to ask him to appear on Aykroyd’s old show Saturday Night Live with her, and as he talked he says he noticed a mysterious black car pull up on a nearby street."

Out of the car purportedly stepped a “very tall,” pale man in a black suit, who gave him a “dirty look” before getting back into the vehicle and driving off. Oddly, the producers of the show Aykroyd was filming shortly after were told to stop shooting a show they were making about UFOs, specifically one in which they had been interviewing a Dr. Steven Greer, of the Disclosure Project, who was about to spill tons of testimony of UFO witnesses and supposed insider information."

"The show never made it to air. It is an odd account to be sure, and one wonders just what in the world was going on here. It is clear that the comedy great and renowned actor Dan Aykroyd truly believes what he is saying and has the knowledge and conviction to back it up. He talks about it with such enthusiasm that it is difficult not to be somewhat drawn into his world. It may not mean that any of this is true, but it is curious how having some fame can bring one’s views to the masses and get people thinking."

"The UFO debate has many players, theories, and directions it can go, and when a well-known celebrity opens up in the topic it tends to have wide-ranging effects. Whether any of what Dan Aykroyd says is true or not, it gives us something to think about, and is one more voice out in a sea of voices on the immortal topic of the UFO phenomenon."

So, based from John Keel's lectures, he would state that whenever someone who spot a UFO or even have a close encounter, these Men in Black would all of a sudden show up to deter the situation. There are also sudden deaths amongst those people that were coming close to the truth about those UFOs, to which seems to connect to these beings intervening.

In Keel's works, he would detail how the Men in Black would either look like an Oriental man, an American Indian, a Black man, or a Laplander, to which the latter is mostly pointed out by the Public. A Laplander or the "Sami people", are sometimes called "The Reindeer people", to which they handle reindeers in Sweden. 

Based from the Wiki states this: "The Sámi people (/ˈsɑːmi/ SAH-mee; also spelled Sami or Saami) are an indigenous Finno-Ugric-speaking people inhabiting Sápmi, which today encompasses large northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Kola Peninsula within the Murmansk Oblast of Russia. The Sámi have historically been known in English as Lapps or Laplanders, but these terms are regarded as offensive by some Sámi people, who prefer the area's name in their own languages, e.g. Northern Sami Sápmi."

"The ancestral land of the Sámi, like other Uralic peoples, is the region along the Volga in Russia, which is the longest river in Europe. Their traditional languages are the Sámi languages, which are classified as a branch of the Uralic language family. Traditionally, the Sámi have pursued a variety of livelihoods, including coastal fishing, fur trapping, and sheep herding. Their best-known means of livelihood is semi-nomadic reindeer herding."

"Currently about 10% of the Sámi are connected to reindeer herding, which provides them with meat, fur, and transportation. 2,800 Sámi people are actively involved in reindeer herding on a full-time basis in Norway. For traditional, environmental, cultural, and political reasons, reindeer herding is legally reserved for only Sámi people in some regions of the Nordic countries."

There are "Sami", "Finn" and "Lapp" amongst the different locations of Sweden and Finland. They are considered "Indigenous", and considered a different people compared to the European locals. I find it interesting that the people seemingly look like a mixture of European and Asian, even similar to that of the Turkic and Central Asian people. 

Then Keel states of some of the Men in Black to be looking dead, as he called them "Cadavers".

Cadaver: "A cadaver or corpse is a dead human body that is used by medical students, physicians and other scientists to study anatomy, identify disease sites, determine causes of death, and provide tissue to repair a defect in a living human being. Students in medical school study and dissect cadavers as a part of their education. Others who study cadavers include archaeologists and arts students."

"The term cadaver is used in courts of law to refer to a dead body, as well as by recovery teams searching for bodies in natural disasters. The word comes from the Latin word cadere ("to fall"). Related terms include cadaverous (resembling a cadaver) and cadaveric spasm (a muscle spasm causing a dead body to twitch or jerk)."

"A cadaver graft (also called “postmortem graft”) is the grafting of tissue from a dead body onto a living human to repair a defect or disfigurement. Cadavers can be observed for their stages of decomposition, helping to determine how long a body has been dead. Cadavers have been used in art to depict the human body in paintings and drawings more accurately."

Apparently, this type of Men in Black has been sighted by people in a video (as seen on Youtube), as they are shown walking in a lobby of a Hotel asking questions on someone's wherabouts. As the teller was being asked, the man notices that their facial features look fake, wider eyes than normal, very pale looking and don't have facial hairs. Black suits, back trench coats, wear exactly the same clothes and hats. The person also details that he felt that they knew what he was thinking. Based from this situation, details that this particular group had freaked everyone out. 

Based from the Website "Nationalparanormalassociation.com" states this: "A video on YouTube poses the question: are the "Men In Black" for real? One witness, facing some uncomfortable questions by some strange men dressed like the movie characters, is not so sure the popular franchise is entirely fictional. And the story gets even weirder. It seems a hotel owner in the Niagara Falls, Canada area witnessed a UFO in 2008 and reported it to a watchdog organization called API. Investigation of the incident included some personal interviews of the hotel staff, who go unidentified in the report."

"During the course of the inquiry, some strange characters showed up at the hotel and were caught on the surveillance camera system. The video below is that footage, played over and over as the witness relates the story of their appearance and conduct. Not finding the hotel owner at work, the alleged, real-life "Men In Black" asked some uncomfortable questions. But it was their bizarre appearance which spooked the hapless staff on duty that day."

"Apparently, MIB aliens are all the same height, wear the same black suits and sport some kind of weird "hat wig" covering their hairless heads. And, oh yeah, they never blinked their hypnotic, deep blue eyes. Not once. This video shows that two men, about the same height and dressed similarly, all in black, paid a visit to the hotel at some point. What they did after that is anyone's guess."

Perhaps with the encounters of the Men in Black, this can pertain to the book by Charles Fort "The Book of the Damned". Based from the Wiki states this: "The Book of the Damned was the first published nonfiction work by American author Charles Fort (first edition 1919). Concerning various types of anomalous phenomena including UFOs, strange falls of both organic and inorganic materials from the sky, odd weather patterns, the possible existence of creatures generally believed to be mythological, disappearances of people, and many other phenomena, the book is considered to be the first of the specific topic of anomalistics."

Overview and Fort's thesis: "The title of the book referred to what he termed the "damned" data – data that had been damned, or excluded, by modern science because of their not conforming to accepted belief. Fort charged that mainstream scientists are conformists who believe in what is accepted and popular, and never really search for truth that may be contrary to what they believe."

"He also compared the close-mindedness of many scientists to that of religious fundamentalists, implying that the supposed "battle" between science and religion is just a distraction for the fact that, science, in his opinion is in essence simply a de facto religion. This is a theme that Fort developed more in his later works, New Lands and Lo!, particularly. Fort was one of the first major writers to deal extensively with paranormal phenomena."

Content: "The first few chapters of the book deal largely with explaining Fort's thesis. As a particular instance, he cites the strange glowing in the sky worldwide, which supposedly resulted from the 1883 eruption of the volcano Krakatoa. Fort claims that such a phenomenon had in fact preceded the eruption by several months, and suggests that scientists, who had been puzzled by the phenomenon initially, used Krakatoa as a convenient explanation for something that they could not explain previously."

"Fort has a particular interest in strange "falls", and discusses purported falls of fish, frogs, and various unidentifiable materials. He also has chapters discussing the findings of "thunderstones", which supposedly fell from the sky during lightning storms; a discussion of evidence for the existence of giants (huge oversized axes too big for any person to use) and fairies (so-called "fairy crosses" and "coffins"); a brief chapter on poltergeist phenomena; the disappearances of many people (including the supposed disappearance of several hundred people in a shelter during the 1755 Lisbon earthquake; he also briefly mentions the famous case of the Mary Celeste (which he would discuss in much more detail in his later Lo!); a rather long section concerning a number of purported UFO sightings (this book was written well before 1947, Kenneth Arnold, and the start of modern UFO allegations); and ends with a mention of the famous "Devil's Footprints" mystery in England during 1855, also citing a number of similar cases. The book also discusses triangle UFOs and sightings of them in various parts of the world from the early 1880s."

Fort's theory and criticism: "Fort's explanation for the above "falls" and UFO sightings is that of the Super-Sargasso Sea – i.e., kind of a stationary "sea" where all things on Earth that are lost are mysteriously found, and occasionally rain back down on Earth (he developed this idea in much more detail in his later books). Though Fort himself apparently does not really believe this explanation, he (at least in this book) does not purport to explain the phenomena as a whole, simply stating the facts as they are, and letting readers to make their own conclusions. His lack of explanation for the phenomena he presents has led some skeptics and critics, particularly Martin Gardner, to criticize Fort as simply a destructive critic (or "crank") presenting negative claims without positive accounts."

How can the unexplained be explained? It is true as Science tends to be the foremost to explain, however, it has unfortunately been falling under the premise as a "religion". There is Science to base things by Facts of biology, observance, and maintaining the results, but it is also "hypothesized" greatly to the extent. So with that said, anyone can have the right to criticize a situation or writing, but that is part of the research, as the person should also observer and do the research for themselves.

When observing portraits and pictures, there are strange objects shown flying in the sky. It becomes evident that these "flying machines", are shown throughout the cultures of the world.

Based from "bibliotecapleyades.net" states this: "ANCIENT FLYING MACHINES There are reference to flying machines in the temple carvings and in the ancient writings. The images found on the ceiling beams of a 3000-year old New Kingdom Temple, located several hundred miles south of Cairo and the Giza Plateau, at Abydos resembles modern day Aircrafts. Reference to ancient Indian flying vehicles comes from ancient Indian sources, many are the well known ancient Indian Epics, and there are literally hundreds of them. Most of them have not even been translated into English yet from the old sanskrit."

"It is claimed that a few years ago, the Chinese discovered some sanskrit documents in Lhasa, Tibet and sent them to the University of Chandrigarh to be translated. Dr. Ruth Reyna of the University said recently that the documents contain directions for building interstellar spaceships! Their method of propulsion, she said, was "anti-gravitational" and was based upon a system analogous to that of "laghima," the unknown power of the ego existing in man’s physiological makeup, "a centrifugal force strong enough to counteract all gravitational pull." According to Hindu Yogis, it is this "laghima" which enables a person to levitate."

"Dr. Reyna said that on board these machines, which were called "Astras" by the text, the ancient Indians could have sent a detachment of men onto any planet, according to the document, which is thought to be thousands of years old. The manuscripts were also said to reveal the secret of "antima", "the cap of invisibility" and "garima", "how to become as heavy as a mountain of lead."  

9th Century Flying references: "Shivkar Bapuji Talpade born in 1864, was a Sanskrit scholar. His birth place is Chirabazar at Dukkarwadi in Bombay. From his young age was attracted by the Vaimanika Shastra (Aeronautical Science) expounded by the great Indian sage Maharishi Bhardwaja. One western scholar of Indology Stephen-Knapp has tried to explain what Talpade did. According to Knapp, the Vaimanika Shastra describes in detail, the construction of what is called, the mercury vortex engine the forerunner of the ion engines being made today. Shivkur Bapuji Talpade’s unmanned aircraft flew to a height of 1500 feet before crashing down and the historian, Knapp adds that additional information on the mercury engines can be found in the ancient Vedic text called Samaranga Sutradhara."

"This text also devotes 230 verses, to the use of these machines in peace and war. The Indologist William Clarendon, who has written down a detailed description of the mercury vortex engine in his translation of Samaranga Sutradhara quotes thus, ‘Inside the circular air frame, place the mercury-engine with its solar mercury boiler at the aircraft center. By means of the power latent in the heated mercury which sets the driving whirlwind in motion a man sitting inside may travel a great distance in a most marvelous manner. Four strong mercury containers must be built into the interior structure."

"When these have been heated by fire through solar or other sources the vimana (aircraft) develops thunder-power through the mercury. It is also added that this success of an Indian scientist was not liked by the Imperial rulers. Warned by the British Government the Maharaja of Baroda stopped helping Talpade. His efforts to make known the greatness of Vedic Shastras was recognized by Indian scholars, who gave him the title of Vidya Prakash Pra-deep."

Anti-Gravity Studies: "The Indian Emperor Ashoka started a "Secret Society of the Nine Unknown Men": great Indian scientists who were supposed to catalogue the many sciences. Ashoka kept their work secret because he was afraid that the advanced science catalogued by these men, culled from ancient Indian sources, would be used for the evil purpose of war, which Ashoka was strongly against, having been converted to Buddhism after defeating a rival army in a bloody battle. The "Nine Unknown Men" wrote a total of nine books, presumably one each."

"Book number was "The Secrets of Gravitation!" This book, known to historians, but not actually seen by them dealt chiefly with "gravity control." It is presumably still around somewhere, kept in a secret library in India, Tibet or elsewhere (perhaps even in North America somewhere). One can certainly understand Ashoka’s reasoning for wanting to keep such knowledge a secret, assuming it exists."

"Ashoka was also aware devastating wars using such advanced vehicles and other "futuristic weapons" that had destroyed the ancient Indian "Rama Empire" several thousand years before. According to ancient Indian texts, the people had flying machines which were called "Vimanas." The ancient Indian epic describes a Vimana as a double-deck, circular aircraft with portholes and a dome, much as we would imagine a flying saucer. It flew with the "speed of the wind" and gave forth a "melodious sound."

"There were at least four different types of Vimanas; some saucer shaped, others like long cylinders ("cigar shaped airships"). In 1875, the Vaimanika Shastra, a fourth century B.C. text written by Bharadvajy the Wise, using even older texts as his source, was rediscovered in a temple in India. It dealt with the operation of Vimanas and included information on the steering, precautions for long flights, protection of the airships from storms and lightening and how to switch the drive to "solar energy" from a free energy source which sounds like "anti-gravity."

"The Vaimanika Shastra (or Vymaanika-Shaastra) has eight chapters with diagrams, describing three types of aircraft, including apparatuses that could neither catch on fire nor break. It also mentions 31 essential parts of these vehicles and 16 materials from which they are constructed, which absorb light and heat; for which reason they were considered suitable for the construction of Vimanas."

"Vimanas were kept in a Vimana Griha, a kind of hanger, and were sometimes said to be propelled by a yellowish-white liquid, and sometimes by some sort of mercury compound, though writers seem confused in this matter. It is most likely that the later writers on Vimanas, wrote as observers and from earlier texts, and were understandably confused on the principle of their propulsion."

"The "yellowishwhite liquid" sounds suspiciously like gasoline, and perhaps Vimanas had a number of different propulsion sources, including combustion engines and even "pulse-jet" engines. It is interesting to note that when Alexander the Great invaded India more than two thousand years ago, his historians chronicled that at one point they were attacked by "flying, fiery shields" that dove at his army and frightened the cavalry. These "flying saucers" did not use any atomic bombs or beam weapons on Alexander’s army however, perhaps out of benevolence, and Alexander went on to conquer India."

"It is interesting to note, that the Nazis developed the first practical pulse-jet engines for their V-8 rocket "buzz bombs." Hitler and the Nazi staff were exceptionally interested in ancient India and Tibet and sent expeditions to both these places yearly, starting in the 30’s, in order to gather esoteric evidence that they did so, and perhaps it was from these people that the Nazis gained some of their scientific information! According to the Dronaparva, part of the Mahabarata, and the Ramayana, one Vimana described was shaped like a sphere and born along at great speed on a mighty wind generated by mercury."

"It moved like a UFO, going up, down, backwards and forwards as the pilot desired. In another Indian source, the Samar, Vimanas were, "iron machines, well-knit and smooth, with a charge of mercury that shot out of the back in the form of a roaring flame." Another work called the Samaranganasutradhara describes how the vehicles were constructed. It is possible that mercury did have something to do with the propulsion, or more possibly, with the guidance system. Curiously, Soviet scientists have discovered what they call "age-old instruments used in navigating cosmic vehicles" in caves in Turkestan and the Gobi Desert."

"The "devices" are hemispherical objects of glass or porcelain, ending in a cone with a drop of mercury inside. It is evident that ancient Indians flew around in these vehicles, all over Asia, to Atlantis presumably; and even, apparently, to South America. Writings found at Mohenjodaro in Pakistan (presumed to be one of the "Seven Rishi Cities of the Rama Empire") and still undeciphered, has also been found in one other place in the world: Easter Island! Writing on Easter Island, called Rongo-Rongo writing, is also undeciphered, and is uncannily similar to the Mohenjodaro script."

"In the Mahavira of Bhavabhuti, a Jain text of the eighth century culled from older texts and traditions, we read: "An aerial chariot, the Pushpaka, conveys many people to the capital of Ayodhya. The sky is full of stupendous flying-machines, dark as night, but picked out by lights with a yellowish glare" The Vedas, ancient Hindu poems, thought to be the oldest of all the Indian texts, describe Vimanas of various shapes and sizes: the "ahnihotra-vimana" with two engines, the "elephant-vimana" with more engines, and other types named after the kingfisher, ibis and other animals. Unfortunately, Vimanas, like most scientific discoveries, were ultimately used for war."

"Atlanteans used their flying machines, "Vailixi," a similar type of aircraft, to literally try and subjugate the world, it would seem, if Indian texts are to be believed. The Atlanteans, known as "Asvins" in the Indian writings, were apparently even more advanced technologically than the Indians, and certainly of a more war-like temperament.

"Although no ancient texts on Atlantean Vailixi are known to exist, some information has come down through esoteric, "occult" sources which describe their flying machines. Similar, if not identical to Vimanas, Vailixi were generally "cigar shaped" and had the capability of maneuvering underwater as well as in the atmosphere or even outer space. Other vehicles, like Vimanas, were saucer shaped, and could apparently also be submerged."

"According to Eklal Kueshana, author of "The Ultimate Frontier," in an article he wrote in 1966, Vailixi were first developed in Atlantis 20,000 years ago, and the most common ones are, "saucershaped of generally trapezoidal cross-section with three hemispherical engine pods on the underside."

"They use a mechanical antigravity device driven by engines developing approximately 80,000 horse power." The Ramayana, Mahabarata and other texts speak of the hideous war that took place, some ten or twelve thousand years ago between Atlantis and Rama using weapons of destruction that could not be imagined by readers until the second half of this century. The ancient Mahabharata, one of the sources on Vimanas, goes on to tell the awesome destructiveness of the war: "...(the weapon was) a single projectile charged with all the power of the Universe."

"ANCIENT VIMANA AIRCRAFT" - a Contribution by John Burrows Sanskrit texts are filled with references to gods who fought battles in the sky using Vimanas equipped with weapons as deadly as any we can deploy in these more enlightened times. For example, there is a passage in the Ramayana which reads: "The Puspaka car that resembles the Sun and belongs to my brother was brought by the powerful Ravan; that aerial and excellent car going everywhere at will .... that car resembling a bright cloud in the sky." ".. and the King [Rama] got in, and the excellent car at the command of the Raghira, rose up into the higher atmosphere."

"In the Mahabharatra, an ancient Indian poem of enormous length, we learn that an individual named Asura Maya had a Vimana measuring twelve cubits in circumference, with four strong wheels. The poem is a veritable gold mine of information relating to conflicts between gods who settled their differences apparently using weapons as lethal as the ones we are capable of deploying. Apart from ’blazing missiles’, the poem records the use of other deadly weapons. ’Indra’s Dart’ operated via a circular ’reflector’. When switched on, it produced a ’shaft of light’ which, when focused on any target, immediately ’consumed it with its power’. In one particular exchange, the hero, Krishna, is pursuing his enemy, Salva, in the sky, when Salva’s Vimana, the Saubha is made invisible in some way."

"Undeterred, Krishna immediately fires off a special weapon: ’I quickly laid on an arrow, which killed by seeking out sound’. Many other terrible weapons are described, quite matter of factly, in the Mahabharata, but the most fearsome of all is the one used against the Vrishis. The narrative records: "Gurkha flying in his swift and powerful Vimana hurled against the three cities of the Vrishis and Andhakas a single projectile charged with all the power of the Universe."

"An incandescent column of smoke and fire, as brilliant as ten thousands suns, rose in all its splendor. It was the unknown weapon, the Iron Thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and Andhakas."

"It is important to note, that these kinds of records are not isolated. They can be cross-correlated with similar reports in other ancient civilizations. The after-affects of this Iron Thunderbolt have an ominously recognizable ring. Apparently, those killed by it were so burnt that their corpses were unidentifiable."

"The survivors fared little etter, as it caused their hair and nails to fall out. Perhaps the most disturbing and challenging, information about these allegedly mythical Vimanas in the ancient records is that there are some matter-of-fact records, describing how to build one."

"In their way, the instructions are quite precise. In the Sanskrit Samarangana Sutradhara, it is written: "Strong and durable must the body of the Vimana be made, like a great flying bird of light material. Inside one must put the mercury engine with its iron heating apparatus underneath. By means of the power latent in the mercury which sets the driving whirlwind in motion, a man sitting inside may travel a great distance in the sky."

"The movements of the Vimana are such that it can vertically ascend, vertically descend, move slanting forwards and backwards. With the help of the machines human beings can fly in the air and heavenly beings can come down to earth." The Hakatha (Laws of the Babylonians) states quite unambiguously: "The privilege of operating a flying machine is great. The knowledge of flight is among the most ancient of our inheritances. A gift from ’those from upon high’. We received it from them as a means of saving many lives."

"More fantastic still is the information given in the ancient Chaldean work, The Sifrala, which contains over one hundred pages of technical details on building a flying machine. It contains words which translate as graphite rod, copper coils, crystal indicator, vibrating spheres, stable angles, etc."

Interesting enough, Keel mentions how the three men that visited Abraham and Sarah, can be viewed as a "Men in Black" incident. This can be viewed in Genesis Chapter 18:

"1And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; 2And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground, 3And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:"

"4Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree: 5And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said. 6And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth. 7And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetcht a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it. 8And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat."

"9And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. 10And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him. 11Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women."

"12Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also? 13And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?"

"14Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son. 15Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh. 16And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way."

Then from there comes the destruction on Sodom and Gomorrah, to which has to be around the areas of India somewhere. This is stated that the Gods (as Abraham made covenants with other Gods, and not one as we are told) would give the land of Israel, which is really the lands of India and China, as the land that his seed would inherit. 

This is shown Genesis 19: "25And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. 26But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. 27And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD: 28And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace."

So, based on Keel's works, he details on how the story of the Men in Black may connect to the being called "King of the World", (Or "Lord of the World"). If this is the case, then perhaps the puzzle pieces can come together. Based from the Chapter "King of the World", I have Ossendowski's account and Rene' Guenon's account on this subject. However, when further reading Rene's version, he heavily criticizes Ossendowski for the lack of esoteric understanding of his experience. However, as I have read these Chapters, I start to see how the "King of the World" is Melchizedek, Michael, to Dionysus, who is generally a Black God. 

In the Chapter "Western Ideas about Agarttha", details an excerpt here: "For example, he (Ossendowski) tells the story of the 'Black Stone' that had originally been sent by the 'Lord of the World' to the Dalai Lama and subsequently taken to Urga in Mongolia, where it disappeared approximately one hundred years ago. In fact, 'black stones' play an important role in many traditions - from the one which is the symbol of Cybele to the one which is enshrined in the Kaaba at Mecca."  

Then when you connect this to Godfrey Higgin's statement on the Goddess Cybele, she was shown to be black complexioned in origin (See "Queen of Heaven"). 

Then based from the "King of the World" states this: Chapter 6 MELKI-TSEDEQ: "EASTERN tradition speaks of Soma being lost at a certain point in time, such that it became necessary for another beverage to be substituted for it, though it bore no relation to the original.1 The usual replacement was wine, to which a large part of the Greek legend of Dionysos is devoted."

"2 Moreover, wine is widely taken to represent the true initiatory tradition: the Hebraic iain, 'wine', and sod, 'mystery', share the same number3 and were thus interchangeable. Wine symbolizes to the Sufi the esoteric knowledge reserved for the small elite and not suitable for all, as all cannot drink wine with impunity. Thus the use of wine in a rite confers upon it a clearly initiatory character; such is the case of the 'eucharistic' sacrifice of Melchizedek,4 upon which we must now dwell a while. Melchizedek, or more precisely Melki-Tsedeq, is none other than the title used by Judaeo-Christian tradition to denote the function of the 'Lord of the World'." 

"...The biblical text prompting Saint Paul's comment reads as follows: 'And Melki-Tsedeq, king of Salem, caused bread and wine to be brought; and he was priest to God the Most High (El Ellon), And he blessed Abram,6 saying: "Blessed be Abram, he of God the Most High, possessor of Heaven and Earth; and blessed be God the Most High who has delivered your enemies into your hands." And Abram gave him the tithe of all he had taken.'"

"Here Melchizedek - as the one giving the blessing - is represented as Abraham's superior: 'It cannot be gainsaid that the inferior is blessed by the superior.'10 Abraham himself recognized this by surrendering the tithe, the mark of his dependence. The whole episode enacts a true 'investiture', almost in the feudal sense of the word, but with the difference that it is a spiritual investiture, wherein is found the exact point of union between the Hebraic and the great primordial tradition."

"The 'blessing' is in fact the communication of a 'spiritual influence' in which Abraham would henceforth participate, since the formula used placed him in a position of direct communication with 'God Most High', He whom Abraham afterwards invoked in the name of Jehovah.11 If, then, Melki-Tsedeq is superior to Abraham it is because his God 'Most High' (Elion) is superior to the 'All-Powerful' (Shaddai), Abraham's God."

"Another view is that the first name represents a higher divine aspect than the second. On the other hand a crucial truth that has never been noticed is that EI Elion is synonymous with Emmanuel, as each carry the same number.12 This fact connects the history of Melki-Tsedeq directly with that of the Magi-kings: consequently the priesthood of Melki-Tsedeq is that of EI Elion. The Christian priesthood is that of Emmanuel. If, then, El Elion is Emmanuel, the two priesthoods are one, thus proving that the Christian office with its eucharistic offering of bread and wine is truly 'according to the order of Melchizedek'.13"

It becomes evident that the God of the Christians to which is called "Jesus Christ", is the Black God Bacchus, as the "Eucharist" of wine and bread connects to this deity. Then there is the Goddess Cybele, who is represented in Mecca with the fallen Meteorite that fell from Heaven, to which people allot to is the Black stone. These Gods pertain to the symbols of "Sirius", as Bacchus is the "Lord of Sirius". (In the Movie "Alien Code", details the Men in Black being directed by a "black skinned" figure in another dimension)
