This very thought-provoking article was spotted by K.M., and I had to pass it along because it's not only a very stimulating idea, but that it reminds me of two very odd and seemingly very unrelated "mentions" in previous literature. The idea is that humans, or at least, humanoids, and perhaps one might say, the genus homo might be spread all over the universe:
“Humans” May Be All Over the Universe, Scientists Say
Here's the gist:
The BBC’s Science Focus magazine recently published an interview with Simon Conway Morris, an evolutionary palaeobiologist at the university’s Department of Earth Sciences, in which he stated that researchers can “say with reasonable confidence” that human-like evolution has occurred in other parts of the universe.
The idea of convergent evolution, which, according to Science Focus, asserts that “random effects gradually average out such that evolution converges, tending to generate similar creatures in any given environment,” lies at the heart of Morris’ thinking. Flying, for instance, was used by the magazine as an illustration of how flying “had evolved independently on Earth at least four times — in birds, bats, insects, and pterosaurs.”
In summary, convergent evolution theory asserts that evolution is a natural law that operates similarly on all planets. In other words, the blue and green alien humanoids from “Star Trek” may be real.
It’s not only Morris who thinks extraterrestrial life evolved “human-like.” In fact, a biologist named Arik Kershenbaum at the prestigious British school published a whole book on it.
“Because evolution is the explanatory mechanism for life everywhere,” Kershenbaum told Quanta magazine this year, “then the principles that we uncover on Earth should be applicable in the rest of the universe.”
In other words, and if I may put it in terms a patristics scholar or for that matter a Stoic might recognize, there are seminal reasons, laws, rational principles, logoi spermatikoi and rationes seminales planted - sewn - in the universe that give in an inherent inner guidance in a certain direction and toward certain goals. Try as one might, in other words, there is an inherent teleology implied in the statement that "evolution is a natural law that operates similarly on all planets."
If so, the the humanoid form is a natural form for the development of intelligent life, and here's were it gets interesting, because one reads similar thoughts in the early church fathers, such as an Irenaeus of Lyon or a Justin Martyr, for whom the "image of God" in man was not simply something "incorporeal"; it also extended to humanity's very physical form. (And here's a question: why might they have said that? Hint: the answer is related to a few other ancient ideas, like microcosms, and macanthropoi, and so on...) And therewith we have yet another example of how modern science, in its hubris of trying to advance away from such ancient notions, ends up coming full circle and buttressing them.
But in addition to the Stoic and patristic parallels, there's yet another odd one, and it's so odd I mentioned it in my books Reich of the Black Sun and SS Brotherhood of the Bell and later in Roswell and the Reich. The connection occurs in an odd statement attributed to biologist Dr. Detlev Bronk in one of the Cooper-Cantwheel sets of Majic-12, or Majestic-12, UFO documents. There Dr. Bronk is alleged to have said, after having allegedly examined a body from a crashed and dead extra-terrestrial being, that one implication of it that scientists would have to contend with was the distinct possibility - suggested by the ET corpse - that there was a "higher order" both to physics and biology. What Dr. Bronk was saying, in other words, was that the humanoid shape to intelligent corporeal life was a kind of physical law; and again, he was implying - and knowing him, probably very reluctantly - a cosmological teleology; he had, in fact, enunciated the first example (in a UFO document!) of the Strong Anthropic Principle of cosmological physics. And in saying that, he was reviving another ancient idea, namely, that the physical universe and all in it was the evident product of something called Logos, a supreme rational principle, behind galaxies, your pet dog... you... everything...
It's nice when science catches up with philosophy...
See you on the flip side...

Wouldn’t it also means that this Universe was created by Human Consciousness? After all, all creations bears a picture of its creator , look at our Universe with its connections between stars and black matter and energy which suspiciously looks like neuron connections in our brains.And our Universe seems to be shaped like our brain too ( at least a visible one). Wouldn’t it also quite nicely connect to previous post about Monroe Gateway Project which by the way seems like gnosticism to me ( long story short, one needs to face yourself and conquer and accept yourself in order to become aware of yourself- I know , it’s very simplistic description but it is accurate).It would also explain all that nonsense with wokism and other monstrosities force-feed into general population.
Hmmm. Me being me there’s a lot I could say to the effect of how very contextualised the article the subject of Dr Joe’s post is. The articles referred to don’t really delineate between human as in form and human as in intellect. Spiritual was probably not a concept Morris or Kershenbum thought much of in terms of “human”. Guiding external non-corporeal templates from some sort of “transcendental informational zero-two dimensional ether” or “galactic cybernet” (as I interpret Joseph as indicating in texts) are perhaps niggling at a separate conceptual stratification of “human”.
The first thought in my mind was of Lovecraft’s cities of dark towers on Pluto and the intelligent humanoid fungi living there unable to return home (at present) busy transferring the “essence” of “willing” humans into metal cylinders so as to survive space travel, i.e; “The Whisperer in darkness” and “Fungi of Yuggoth”.
I don’t think the fellows in the articles were really saying much more than, for example expect all over the place in the universe(es) to find living things with legs, fins and cephalised sensory organs, contingent on environmental circumstances in those places being similar to Earth.
When genie is out of the bottle, it refuses to go back.
Typical arrogance of humans thinking intelligent life across the Universe will have a humanoid form. What about cephalopods? Joseph did you manage to watch the superb film Arrival? Certainly if the planet is predominantly water, humanoids will be eclipsed. Remember civilization has only existed on Planet Earth for 10,000 years – a mere blip in time!
The flesh tent consists of multiple organs in symbiosis, that have separate lifes, and own consciousness. The brain is an arrogant dragon, and it doesn’t know everything. By defeating the dragon, spirit is unleashed, as the genie escapes the bottle. That is breaking the Seventh Seal, becoming Pendragon, i.e. head of dragon:
Evolution is a hugely flawed theory. Theory.
I find it remarkable that anyone would hold to it.
I doubt it is needed to explain the diversity of organisms in the universe.
A beautiful Skotsman named Mark,
Once lamented how Diz’nay
ruined his high street
The Lilliputian loosh farm
Has it’s tentacles everywhere….
The Lah g’us (closer to appropriate Koine pronunciation)
Must overcome the mechanaomai
Deux machina was always used by good Greek playwrights
As in “give me a Fulcrum to rest and I will move the earth ‘ Archimedes
Deus ex machina pops up like angels in the Holy Writ, as parental guidance, because pyrotechnics and biochemical warfare is off limits for children’s ears, who instinctively play, by emulating grown-ups.
The factual details, on how Sodom and Gomorrah were torched, and the Assyrian siege of Jerusalem was staved off, was repeated only in the war council.
Some technical details would have been considered military secrets, known only by few.
The general rule is, that an angels and unicorns are narrative footnotes.
When you consider the size of the known universe, then just consider what makes up our Earth, which was given to the man and woman…
There could be other men and women in the universe. The Bible does not say there are not. What might make our Earth different is that a created being, known as Lucifer or the Devil tried to take God’s authority. He had been cast down to our Earth. He beguiled the first woman, getting her to doubt God along with eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
The good shepherd Christ left the 99 sheep and went to rescue the lost sheep. Us.
After the flood and the scattering of the people at the Tower of Babel God established the Nations of the Earth. These nations are not meant to be united or part of a one world system. That one world idea is what the Tower of Babel was all about. Secret cults are working toward that, trying to find the knowledge man had at the Tower of Babel. And this one world idea will almost happen again, during the Great Tribulation period. Even if we got the knowledge, so what, Noah’s flood came because the people living at the time before the flood had gotten to the place where “every imagination in the heart of man was evil continually”.
Other humans in the universe? Who knows. We know man is an incredible being. Capable of so much. Going back to the Tower of Babel is not our answer. We are the lost sheep, we need to go all the way back to the garden, before knowledge became our main goal. One world government won’t take us there. What is going on now in the Ukraine looks like preparation for Europe to unite even more. The 10 toes on the statue in The Book of Daniel, the ten horns on the Beast in the Book of Revelation. Ten kings, a king or ruler for each nation of this confederacy. AntiChrist will be one of the kings.
This generation will by NO means pass away…
One sabotages kings, by defining them, by using power of definition. Old English Cyning has secular definition, as kin to clans – which is an etymological fact – who is thereafter attested rightful, by an IQ-test, contained within a nursery rhyme:
Technically, one has moved light years ahead, from Samuel’s magic oil, that contained expensive fragrance, and elevated kings by eau de cologne.
Instead one uses the 8-point compass, and that is the Seven Seals, expanded into the 32-point compass, that is the Runes.
Sailing witship it is, epistemologically.
Man learning to sail witship,
on Black Pearl spaceship,
whilst flying broom
is quite a hilarious trip.
Christ had other sheep, in a parallel universe. That is a fact. John 10:16
But, to make a political analysis of the Christ phenomenon, one is automatically accused of taking lollipops from autistic kiddies.
That raises a suspension, that the church has something to hide, when Man has a God-given brain, that he doesn’t use.
Perhaps Pope Satan wants power of definition over Man, to make him “human”?
It’s called bio-mechanics another example is the marine ichthyosaur and the bottlenose dolphin the first a marine reptile the second a marine mammal. Both sported the same body design because of the environment they were living in.
Maybe a planet that developed high intelligence beings widely separated in the evolutionary tree?
What if we had high IQ reptiles and us, high IQ mammals, running around?
Pretty sure that if one thing this website has acheived, it is that ANY “what if?” scenario is, circumstantially at least, eminently provable —— and, therefore, existent.
is there an image of God in a feral human?
DEAD MAN ARISEN
Imperial humans are slaves for sale,

Yes, it’s about time science started catching up with ancient wisdom! You’d think the fact that the Fibonacci sequence appears throughout nature might give scientists a clue that there are certain principles and proportions that guide the development of life. Evidently, one of the articles of faith in the Church of Scientism is that nothing ever happens except by pure, random chance.
>”evolution is a natural law that operates similarly on all planets.”<
The process, yes, but the results would be dependent on the environment of the particular planet.
A hypothetical planet that has an environment which promulgates Hillary Clinton "clones", think of it……
Yes, I think that Asimov’s Foundationers were dead wrong in thinking that there must necessarily be a single planet of origin for the human race.
Everything is eventually, including every potential alternative twist of everything. Given enough space, which there is an infinite of, of course there are every conceivable alternative humanlike form being expressed somewhere right now. This idea proposes it could be much nearer and more abundant than previously conceived. Given enough time, of which there is an infinite of, eventually every alternative version will manifested everywhere. To time travel, speed is just as much the key as it is to traveling great distances to find the alternate. He who conquers the speed of light conquers the multiverse, time, and distance, and even dimensions.
That is true. Man vibrates his ancestry in his blood. He is his ancestors. What is wrongly called worship of ancestors, is literally invoking the bloodline.
A human “thing” is cut off from its ancestors, whereas a Man is his ancestors. A compass is a pinpointed expansion, into all directions simultaneously.
A human is a distinct species of sheep, and in the Holy Writ they were the lost sheep, that needed redemption, because they were cut off from ancestral invocation.
Man’s time travel and exodus is the same.
We are stardust, we are golden
We are caught in the devil’s bargain
And we’ve got to get ourselves
Back to the garden.
Probably a better way to examine this phenomenon is focusing on “DNA”.
Panspermia is the vector of DNA; replete throughout the universe?
Perhaps programable and hyper-linked/accessible to many dimensions?
Another angle may be that “our cousins” seeded many universes?
Or, “others” seeded many solar gardens
for nefarious purposes, like warfare?

I remember reading that the Buddha is alleged to have said something similar, along the lines of “it is very rare and fortuitous to be born a human”, the implication being that humans have the unique potential to attain spiritual enlightenment.
Buddha was of Scythian descent, and “sakya muni” means, that he was Saka memory, a reminiscence of unbound Isaacs, who, before 7th century BC, were bound within Israelite reservation.
To break the Israelite karma wheel (Scythian Ashtanga), one takes position in its center. That is called Samadhi, when Odin/Adonai places the eye in the well.
In Christian terms, that is to turn around (“epistrepho” in Greek), and approach the light of Christ, in the Scythian cave allegory, that is attributed to Plato.
What Romans name human, others see as slavery.
BUDDHA SAKYA MUNI
Parthian shot, in hasteful ride,
is battlefield turning tide,
with yoga training
that Ashtanga does provide
“bound within Israelite reservation”?
u mean Lord Sakyamuni Buddha, born Siddharta as the heir to the Sun-dynasty of the saka-schytians was bound to an Israelite reservation?! where did u get that Ana?
Lord Buddha in an israelite reservation is pure nonsense IMHO. scythians do not need to borrow from Israelites anything.
Saka-Scythians are the ancient Israelites, by another name. The deported Israelites rebelled against Assyria, and defeated the empire, and became known, by Greek historians, as Scythians, a general term for steppe milk-drinkers.
Contrary to modern propaganda, ancient Israelite settlement was, until 7th century BC, a snow-white homeland. The racial integrity was known, as being a “bound Isaac”, and those, who left the reservation, were “unbound Isaacs”.
This is, what the parable of Abram and Isaac, bound to an altar, actually means. Not everyone would have agreed to an arranged marriage, and thus left the reservation, never to return. That was the strict rule, to avoid bad blood infiltration by commie Moloch.
During a millennium, many “unbound Isaacs”, would have “germinated” the surrounding territories. Romans encountered Saka-Scythians in Europe, and called them “germanus”, whom Tacitus depicts in Germania. In Latin, “germanus” is untainted source of origin.
The eight-spoked Dharmachakra of Buddha is Odin’s eight-legged horse. Ashtanga yoga and Odin’s sport are the same. Both originated in the 7th century BC, as a martial art in asymmetrical warfare, to produce a Parthian shot, in mounted archery on the steppe.
Scythian Ashtanga reconstructed, from Sanskrit and Old Norse, as Dumbledore’s secret weapon:
Excellent post and here is a something from a very famous ancient language linguist scholar about a similar subject.
Attempting an epistemological redefinition, one would have to place Genesis inside a context.
But no political narrative wants a context outside its own territory, guarded by gatekeepers.
One does shrooms, to circumvent the gatekeepers, by literally blowing their minds, and one’s own in the process.
This is what jumping of the original karma wheel looks like, under the hood:
Black Pearl is a well known metaphor for the night sky, suggesting, that Captain Jack Sparrow is a space traveler.
In Davy Jones Locker, Captain Jack Sparrow encounters intelligent lifeforms, that look exactly like himself.
Jack Sparrow is of course the Green Man, a mushrooming trait of the Scandio-Scythian and Indo-Scythian expansion.
Spirit is the greater man, the unbottled rum genie.
DAVY JONES LOCKER
Thirsty rummy jumps downstairs,
into madness of dry despair,
until genie of rising tide
