Now, as you know, I seldom reference videos in my blogs, if only for the reason I have little to no time to watch them, but when Mr. L.G.LR sent this one, I not only sat up and took notice at the title and who was doing it, but I sat up and took notice yet again when I saw what was being done and suggested.
Readers of my books and listeners of various interviews, or for that matter, regular readers of my blogs, will recall that I have stated on a number of occasions that certain family lines would be greatly interested in using the genome studies and advances in sequencing to search for any confirmation of the "old stories" and the possibilities that their families are genetically connected to them. In short, they are, as I've argued, interested in confirming those stories and the possible relationship of their families to them. In my book The Cosmic War: Interplanetary Warfare, Modern Physics, and Ancient Texts, I went so far as to speculate that the horrific ancient technologies might have been biometrically based or activated. The implication here is that if that be the case, and any of those technologies were ever recovered, then activating them would require the requisite biometric signature, and thus one might have yet another hidden motivation for such genetic researches on the part of certain old families.
Which brings us to the Sinclair/St. Clair clan, a surname not without its own variegated connections to stories of ancient bloodlines, esoteric knowledge, Templar treasures, secret voyages, and so on. I was completely unaware of this project until Mr. L.G.LR brought it to my attention, though as will become self-evident, this project appears to have been underway for some time, but because of its obvious and intrinsic relationship to the types of topics covered on this website, it would be remiss of me not to bring it to everyone's attention. Trust me folks, you'll want to watch this six and a half or so minutes of video:
Now, I certainly don't begrudge this old family from wanting to understand its origins by means of modern techniques, given all that has been said about them in various alternative media and books. What I find remarkably interesting, however, is that the study is what I long ago speculated it would be: an interdisciplinary effort combining the latest sequencing techniques, records and texts (insofar as they were available), family lore and traditions, and, perhaps, a little willingness to speculate. Given the recent announcement of companies such as google making home DNA-testing kits available, or the easily-searched "ancestry" websites with their own offers of DNA testing, it would appear - here comes the high octane speculation - that indeed there is a delieberately-driven "push" to gather huge DNA databases.
One can, of course, speculate on all the obvious reasons why the elites would be interested in compiling such databases: they would be invaluable for genetically based therapies, or conversely, for bio-weapons research, for social engineering and population movement studies, for historical reconstruction of human pre-history, and so on and so forth. But they would also - let us be honest and crawl way out on the end of the twig of speculation - be invaluable to confirm "those ancient stories", family traditions and lore, and invaluable to track, if one suspected such a thing were possible, any human-looking but non-homo sapiens sapiens population on earth.
High octane speculations? Wild and crazy notions? To be sure.
But what is most interesting with the effort of the Sinclair/St Clair clan to trace its origins, is the fact that now, finally, we have absolute confirmation that at least one of those prominent and old families, one of the elite families of the Middle Ages, is in fact engaged in precisely the effort that I have suggested all along might have been a hidden motivation in the genome project to begin with. As such, the probability that other such families might have been doing this covertly is also raised. In the meantime, we wish the Sinclairs every success; their story, like all of our stories, are written in their genes, and we hope that in reading it, we learn something of ourselves as well, entangled as their family has been, with significant events in western culture and history.
See you on the flip side...
