There's a curious article at Forbes magazine that was shared by V.T., in which it is reported that a recent NASA paper advocates looking for technology from other civilizations in space:

Revealed: Why We Should Look For Ancient Alien Spacecraft On The Moon, Mars And Mercury According To NASA Scientists

There's an interesting interpretation to give to this story by way of a bit of high octane speculation, but we'll get to that. First, however, in order to highlight that speculation, let's look at the article and how it summarizes the NASA paper. From the beginning of the article we read the following paragraphs:

From UFO crash sites on other planets and aliens “lurking” on asteroids to a permanent radio telescope on the far side of the Moon, a new NASA-funded study into the search for intelligent extraterrestrial life (SETI) details how future NASA missions could purposefully look for the “technosignatures” of advanced alien civilizations.

Described as evidence for the use of technology or industrial activity in other parts of the Universe, the search for technosignatures has barely begun, but could unearth something surprising without much additional spend, says the study.


Published in the specialized journal Acta Astronautica, the study includes a list of what’s NASA missions could detect as observational “proof of extraterrestrial life” beyond Earth.

Perhaps most intriguingly, the paper suggests that interstellar probes might have been sent into the Solar System a long time ago, perhaps during the last close encounter of our Sun with other stars.

This in itself is interesting, for the implication of the last paragraph is a tacit admission that "someone" from outside this solar system might have "been here" long ago. With this, there is a further implication, namely, that part of NASA's mission should include - for want of a better expression - extraterrestrial archaeology. The article then summarizes NASA's list of "things to look for," which, we note, includes (1) a search for "crash sites on the Moon, Mars, Mercury, or Ceres."  What's interesting again are the implications, for crash sites would imply "debris fields," and anyone who looked through the snapshots accompanying the link of last Friday's blog will readily appreciate the significance of this point.

Even more peculiar are points (5) and (6). Point (5) notes that NASA should look for "lurkers on asteroids." Regular readers of my books and blogs will know that I entertained the exploded planet hypothesis for the creation of the asteroid belt, a hypothesis advanced by astronomers in the 19th century who posited a now-missing planet in the solar system that exploded and created not only many of the comets in orbit around the sun, but our solar system's asteroid belt, a hypothesis revived in the 20th century by Dr. Tom van Flandern of the US Naval Observatory. Notably, the 19th century astronomers named that missing planet "Krypton." Even more interesting is the fact that NASA is now entertaining an idea I advanced at the 2015 Secret Space Program in Bastrop, Texas, where I coupled the idea of "the Watchers" found in ancient texts such as the Slavonic text of the book of Enoch, to the exploded planet hypothesis and the hypothesis of an ancient cosmic war.

Then comes point number (6), namely, that NASA should conduct "intercept missions" on "interstellar interlopers," such as the "comet" Oumuamua that came streaking into our Solar System a few years ago, and then left. Some serious scientists entertained the notion that the "comet" wasn't a comet at all, but a spaceship or space probe of some sort. In this respect, the idea of "intercept missions" takes on a more forbidding implication: what should we do if we do intercept something like that? And then finally, another stunner, number (10): look for "small asteroids" that might in fact be "artificial."

Now, all of this might seem "new" and exciting, except it isn't new at all. In the late 1950s NASA commissioned the Brookings Institute to do a study on what one might expect to find as humanity ventured forth in space. That study concluded that one might find all sorts of "remains" and "artifacts", including high technology, left over from some ancient space-faring civilization out there. The study concluded that if that was the case, such discoveries should be handled very carefully if not kept secret altogether, for fear that its disclosure would upset religious fundamentalists. Reading between the lines of the report, it really is implying that one of the purposes of venturing into space was to retrieve and recover (and presumably, reverse engineer) such technology, and any old excuse for keeping it secret would do.

So why am I rehearsing that history? Because of today's high octane speculation. NASA's recent paper about looking for such technology and conducting "intercept" missions is not all that new. In fact, the possibility was known, and talked about, from the very beginning. And if NASA thought of it, one can be assured the Soviets - the only other players in the space race at the time - did too. But most people have never heard of the Brookings Report, and even fewer have sat down to actually read it. (When one does, one is in for some shockers, as I detail in my book Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations). In any case, what's new here isn't the content so much as where these ideas are now being talked about, not in a specialized think tank study, but in a major print media outlet.

That, I think is the real story here. And while I'm at it, I'll walk right off the end of the speculation twig once again:

I think a new narrative is being prepared. After all, we've seen a definitive "uptick" in major lamestream media coverage of the whole UFO issue in the past three to four years.

See you on the flip side...

    At last some excellent and inspiring news from NASA. They are extending the mission of the Mars Helicopter – Ingenuity into a 30 sols operational phase! It will scout ahead of Perseverance to look for promising rock formations and cliff sides for detailed inspection by the rover. Perhaps it will find some fossils to study? I hope so!

    Analogue versus digital.
    I had a tremendous thread going, if I may say so; and then it went “poof”.
    Had I been writing about ancient “truths” in respects to “narratives”.
    I experienced a “little” trouble in getting the cursor to move to the next line. Then & there, I should have posted; then continued the thread… below.

    In analogue; “they” would have had to use other methods,
    to stop the “publishing” of whatever they don’t cotton to.

    I’m mad at myself for having “lost” it.

    Yet, sometimes, I’ve read what I wrote; and wished that had gone poof; before I clicked the “post comment” button.

    Still, I’d rather suffer humiliation; than see, as far as I’m concerned, censorship.
    Either AI, or ‘live”, or “whatever”.

    This is further proof they are over confident and don’t take us seriously anymore. They have come to realize that two thirds of humanity will accept any explanation justifying the tightening of the net around them, no matter how illogical or unprobable. They just need authority to tell them it is for their own good and not to listen to the conspiracy kooks; their corporate media and banking overlords and government loves them and knows what’s best. Classic mistake evil makes. Eventually there will be mass panic and a stampede. Lets hope this NWO isn’t agile enough to escape it when it does occur and everyone’s blinders get pierced by the soon too intense to avoid real truth of the matter. Their corporate media banking overlords and their government henchmen are completely corrupt, deceitful, and malicious. They want them enslaved and dead. Looks like political round ups are about to begin. I suspect first they will target political and alternative media leaders and abuse the justice system to justify it to the sheeple. Then the rest of us who are awake by the order of our threat assessment levels AI likely has accumulated. To hide their bias they will possibly go after their more moderate progressive in house opposition as well. AI could possibly then monitor the remaining sheeple and deal with them as it sees their threat assessment value increase as they begin to see they are last but not least. Got to reach that 500,000,000 million goal don’t you know to save and redeem the Earth for the seventh millenia and future world to come..

    I just remembered some important evidence that demonstrates that the European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA are two faced. And this gives ammunition to the motto “the truth is out there, trust no one”.
    The “unicorn” images of the Face on Mars published by the ESA in 2006 were a complete farce!
    The true image of the Face (not published in the mass media and hence invisible to the ESA funding general public) is on page 4 – lower picture.
    The ESA Professor finally admitted as much in his letter responding to SPSR. This is a clear example of bad and misleading science by Space Agencies in the Cydonia Region.
    One truly hopes that China is alert to all these smoke and mirrors!

    This was a narrative prepping week.
    Joe Rogan sold a couple ideas as new with a comedian and an obviously controlled “journalist.” First he came out sacriligious that anyone 21 and healthy should not take the vax. That got the c1984 compliers screaming twitter to deplatform Rogan especially on spotify. Also he had Josh Rogin selling stories that get us many steps closer to BMGF sacrificing Fauci to the Wuhan conspiracy. Looks like the OneHealth Doctrine crowd overstepped with Klaus’ big sales pitch on being happy and poor and they’re dialing it back a step. Smells like the internet down in July during Klaus’ tabletop excercise is going to get combined with a stiffer biohazard dose for the world to convince the smarter folk to run to a vax for protection –

    More later. Gotta go. Meanwhile, might be an idea to listen to Kevin McCairn and Montagraph on Twitter (OctoberReinz), their website and youtube. McCairn

      It seems like the race is on to raise awareness of so-called “vaccinated” (actually “weaponized”?) people “shedding” (before the next biohazard is unleashed)?

      Zen Dog: “dialing it back” doesn’t really mean anything. When running a propaganda psyop, hit them hard first, then adjust as necessary. They hit us so hard that the whole world is lining up to get poked.
      Round One: WEF and WHO
      sacrificing Fauci? I should live to see the day. That dog won’t hunt. People don’t want to hear about it.
      Being happy and poor: this could well turn out to be a long-term outcome. Nobody will come to take your personal possessions away; that will be accomplished through attrition and the rising price of new hardware… many people already lease their automobiles, many are doing it on an hourly basis now.
      In the long run, if people are “happy” then government is doing it’s job (at least as they see it.) And if that is where humanity goes, so be it, I couldn’t care less.
      As an organism we obviously have a lot to learn.

      • FiatLux on April 29, 2021 at 11:20 pm

        People might, in some ideal world that isn’t the one we live in, be able to own nothing and be happy. But that’s only part of the deal. The other part is, you’ll be tracked, traced, controlled, and not allowed to do anything with your time or your life that isn’t permitted by the authorities. There are a lot of people who wouldn’t be happy with that, poor or not.

    Anyone who has read and viewed science fiction stories in books, film, tv this would be nothing new and very old hat. Comicbooks have used this meme Superman being the most famous though he is not the only one. The question has always been what did our elites know about this subject and when did they know it. Crashed ancient vehicles on other planets in our solar system what about here on Earth. And I have read about this in books about space exploration and they were not fiction books.

    This piece of news is actually so much “in your face” that in my opinion it represents a (not so) subtle “annunciation” of the breakaway civilisation.

    How many, among the 8bn, are actually going to take notice of it, and how many are going to reason about its implications?
    Very, very few.

    Looks like the first step – the breakaway civilisation announcing itself (they have to, it’s the rules).

  15. Robert Barricklow on April 28, 2021 at 12:37 pm

    “Prepping the narrative” is pregnant w/deep intentions.
    There’s the international banking cartel, like the FED;
    whose prepped narrative stretches back thousands of years.
    Think of the priest original ties to finance; and their biblical narrative.
    There’s the pyramid hierarchical-structured, power-pyramid narrative; stretching – so far back, it appears to become near genetic.
    Indeed, the “language” gene, maybe a Tower of Babel construct.
    [the above sentence; itself layered in a linguistic DNA, of twist & turns].

    To today’s post….

    Of course, looking for ancient artifacts/technologies is a given.
    No surprise, that NASA would territory[“scent-up”] that line of thought.

    Love the way “they” scent their story lines w/ “lurking” words.
    Soon, w/all this coming augmented reality; they’ll be Hollywood music, scoring their narrative backgrounds…

      “The search for alien ‘technosignatures’ has barely begun.”?
      I doubt that. It’s been going on for a long damn time.
      All that’s going to happen now, is that NASA is going to take
      the tax man approach. Let NASA tell you how it will be.
      Here’s one alien technosignature for the public, and 19 for NASA.
      Should that appear to small; be thankful NASA doesn’t take them all.

      The Nasa mission list, is really about what they’ve already found.
      So NASA controls the narrative, to tell the public how it will be.
      For example, the past tense technosignatures that have already been found; will be upgraded to, “a search for”; or, an intercept mission to find something artificial, like an asteroid. What about the artificial Moon?
      Oops; I forgot: it’s NASA’s narrative of misdirection.

      So, “they’re” getting ready to blow the dust off some old mission narratives; to update it w/some new mission narratives, while keeping it all in-sync w/the new NWO woke-lingo.
      The question is; what [alien] narrative are they prepping for?
      Alien invasion?
      A 2nd coming?
      A alien “agreement”/
      Because, I for one, don’t think “their” narrative will be “truthful” in any sense of the word.
      A better way to put it is:
      What’s the next big narrative lie, rolling off the covid1984 hot presses?
      The clues are already being prepped,
      for those prepared to read between the lies,
      and search for truths.

      • Terminal Tom on April 29, 2021 at 4:51 am

        Seems to me they got a lot of ‘splainin’ to do right here on earth.
        We have highly similar ancient traditions / legends / mythology from around the world, dealing with the distant, pre-historic past.
        there is strong evidence for technologically sophisticated if not SUPERIOR civilizations on the planet, whose history is lost to us.
        There is a reason why this is not discussed. “The science” is once again preoccupied with bullshit explanations for phenomena that are staring us in the face.
        Who was cutting, shaping and moving 1200 ton stone blocks prior to the romans ( Baalbek ) or builiding pyramids containing 2 million limestone (?) blocks, etc. over 6000 years ago?
        Or the structures in Peru, etc.
        Right there in your face. Not interesting. Don’t talk about it.

  16. DanaThomas on April 28, 2021 at 12:20 pm

    Some papers have already been published on space archaeology. Though on a what-if basis, saying what should be looked for etc. But Hoagland and then so many others have been doing that for years, without the benefit of central bankster money doles.

    • Foglamp on April 28, 2021 at 5:55 pm

      Yes, the bit that made me laugh was, “…the search for technosignatures has barely begun, but could unearth something surprising without much additional spend…”
      In other words, “Keep the money flowing, and (to keep you compliant and in fear) we might disclose one or two misleading points of information/distraction that we found a long time ago.” Classic!

      • FiatLux on April 29, 2021 at 11:35 pm

        It was that bit about “without much additional spend” that leapt out at me and made me chuckle too. (So you can build a space program with a multi-trillion-dollar hidden system of finance? Imagine that!) I guess they need a way to explain how they’ve financed all the discoveries they’ve made over the years, which it seems like they’re planning to slowly reveal to the public in the guise of new discoveries. If they get a few extra billion before letting more cats out of the bag, an ever-credulous public will buy the idea that a small budget increase made all these amazing “new” discoveries possible.

  17. Awake on April 28, 2021 at 10:14 am

    Yes, the narrative is changing but what will it actually be when it’s done? Did it not come out recently by a retired israeli general that the USA has been in contact with an extraterrestrial civilization for a long time now. Also that Trump was going to declass this information and allow the world to know about the ET presence on earth, but supposedly the ETs we’re not ready yet for the world to know or see them because the people of earth need to understand what space as well as space travel really are.

    • Laura on April 28, 2021 at 1:42 pm

      “the narrative is changing but what will it actually be when it’s done? ” good question.

    NASA has done nothing in public to look for ET archaeology in our Solar System since its formation. Carl Sagan was no use or help in this regard.
