When T.S. sent the following article to me, I had to read and re-read it a couple of times trying to figure out why he thought it intriguing enough to send, and I think I know, and that thought is the subject of today's high octane speculation. But as for the article itself, it's fairly straight forward, and about a fairly straight forward topic: Fossils, and in this case, really tiny ones, or "nano-fossils":

Now I'm not sure why the article said that these "ghost fossils" are "completely unexpected." A quick search will reveal that they've been known for quite a while. In this case, the nano-fossil in question is that of a type of plankton:

The fossils are microscopic imprints, or “ghosts,” of single-celled plankton, called coccolithophores, that lived in the seas millions of years ago, and their discovery is revolutionizing our understanding of how climate change affects plankton in the oceans.

And just for good measure, the article includes a few highly intriguing pictures:

Microscopic Plankton Cell-Wall Coverings Preserved As “Ghost” Fossil Impressions

Modern and Jurassic Coccolithophore Exoskeletons (Coccospheres)

Now I want to have you join me in a though experiment which I hope will make a little more sense of today's very high, off-the-end-of-the-twig, speculation. Assume, for a moment, that you were looking at the second picture, without any text or article as context for what you're looking at.  What would you say they were? And where were they?

For my part, when I saw these strange pictures, my first impression was that they looked like some sort of space satellites. Or even an artist's depictions of Ezekiel's "wheels within wheels." The last thing I would have thought of was some sort of organism, and the very last thing I would have thought of was a very small organism, much less a fossil of that organism. At the minimum, however, I thought we were looking at a technology.

And it's that word - technology - that brings me to today's high octane speculation. What if we are looking at a technology? After all, most(not all) nano-technology currently is biological (remember Dr. Charles Lieber?) Some of it can be mechanical, certainly, but much of it is biological. And under special circumstances, such material can be fossilized.   If this be the case, then the implications become rather large: if it could be conclusively demonstrated that some of this stuff is a technology, then we're looking at a Very High Civilization in the mists of pre-history. And suppose, just for fun, that these very pictures, while of plankton, are also pictures of technology, or to put that differently, suppose the plankton in this case is the technology. If so, then ... well... you know... have to think about it...

See you on the flip side...

    The picture on the bottom left is obviously a dodecaphonic speaker, broadcasting the music of J S and C P E Bach to the ancient oceans.

    I’m not entirely joking. You and I and Dr Dawkins agree that life is the product of technology. The debate is about whether or not the watchmaker is blind.

    In “The Emerald Tablets, Thoth talks about observing a group of Beings who could manufacture cities out of the Aether simply by using their minds. We haven’t gotten that far yet, have we?!!! ;-0

    Ocean is full of fish, in plankton soup, as flappy fish market.

    Khazarian movie moguls make use of prostitute piranhas – as paid informants – to blackmail and liquidate Scythian rummies, who have artistic integrity, able to resist the Assyrian war propaganda, that plots a new Khazarian empire of lies. (-> The Ukraine)

    The left hand greyscale image reminds me of liverworts/ mosses that grow on rocks and bloom after rain in the winter. I guess the “litho-” part of the genera’s name implies that. The Right hand looks like flowering parts of flowering plants. The inner “bearing” section of these circular-disky structures is interesting. These things are apparently single celled animals and perhaps that part sitting “under”/in the middle of the “bearing” folds out/ extends to provide some kind of motility in fluid(?)

    If I had no other reference, I would have to say we are looking at technology. My training is almost as old as I am, and it includes biology. I would still say it’s technology. That twig looks more like a limb.

    This interesting post reminds me of Michael Crichton, an author we lost way too soon. In ‘Prey’ he writes:

    “Parasitism and symbiosis were the true basis for evolutionary change. These processes lay at the heart of all evolution, and had been present from the very beginning. Lynn Margulis was famous for demonstrating that bacteria had originally developed nuclei by swallowing other bacteria.”


    “We think we know what we are doing. We have always thought so. We never seem to acknowledge that we have been wrong in the past, and so might be wrong in the future. Instead, each generation writes off earlier errors as the result of bad thinking by less able minds—and then confidently embarks on fresh errors of its own.”

    Something is in the air, because this showed up in my twitter feed. It may not be qualified as an ancient nano technology, but as the ancient macro technology, it should fit.
    Description on the top coming from the owner of the tweet translates: “You go for a ride once and they write about it everywhere”

    Closely related to this is gene drive – the genetic engineering of organisms and the elimination of their undesireable features by humans.
    BBC News reports the following:
    “The way gene drives work sounds like something from a science fiction novel, but they are already being used in laboratory tests. It is complicated stuff, but here is a simple explanation.
    While standard GM introduces a new, lab-tweaked gene into a organism, gene drive technology goes one stage further. It introduces a gene drive – a lab-created gene that can also automatically replicate itself – that targets and removes a specific natural gene.
    This is how it works: if an animal (parent A) that contains a gene drive mates with one that doesn’t (parent B), then in the forming embryo that starts to combine their genetic material, parent A’s gene drive immediately gets to work.
    It recognises the natural gene version of itself in the opposite chromosome from parent B, and destroys it, by cutting it out of the DNA chain. Parent B’s chromosome then repairs itself – but does so, by copying parent A’s gene drive.
    So, the embryo, and the resulting offspring, are all but guaranteed to have the gene drive, rather than a 50% chance with standard GM – because an embryo takes half its genes from each parent.”

      Hadn’t heard of that.
      Thanks for the link & bringing “gene drive” to the fore!

    • Jay on May 25, 2022 at 5:36 pm

      It does sound like an incest with extra steps, to be fair. Probably it is a way to achieve so called “pure-blood”, perhaps?

    • Mr Sophistication on May 25, 2022 at 10:20 pm

      Gene Drive technology has been quietly rolling out into the public sphere since 2019.
      Here’s a Nature article which of course presents Gene Drive as a good thing with a few questions:

      “Altering the genomes of entire animal populations could help to defeat disease and control pests, but researchers worry about the consequences of unleashing this new technology.”

      • Mr Sophistication on May 25, 2022 at 10:22 pm

        Like any technology, Gene Drive can be used for good or ill; for instance, you could possibly use the technology to breed parasites that can more easily infect/infest human hosts.

    Has anyone out there read Michael Cremo’s Forbidden Archeology? (It’s on my “read it one day if I live long enough” list.) It would be interesting to know if he came across anything similar in his research.

    The headline grabbed me: nano-fossils.
    A new word construction of a: future-ancient concept.

    The “ghost” into these word constructions, is beginning to get inked so much; it seems forced.
    “Plankton” is also much in play, as this “climate op” get way too much ink. It is forced.

    Although, I very much like this concept of reading the “ghost” script, time-posted on ocean floors..
    A sort of: ancient-beach sand-script.

    I can already see the coming lines of controlling narratives: all being bundled into a sort of mass-shootings of children; to get the gun-control rammed through, w/the climate control.
    Of course, both ops; “forced”, into a scripted, by the “just us” box.
    In other words, I see a coming amalgamation of waaaay too black ops, of which readings of ghost fossils are going to be forced into a climate “storyline”.

    In that “picture experiment” I saw jellyfish squeezed uncommonly-together for warmth; due to an epigenetic environmental trigger[pulled by an asteroid]?
    I seeing, biotechnology; written in DNA code.

    It is technology.
    The question is not that it goes back far.
    But how far?
    What purpose?

    As in most days; running late.
    But will ponder, and return.

    White Rabbit.

      Was thinking of today’s blog at the bus stop.
      While on the bus, I opened my latest novel, Fools Errant by Matthew Hughes[1994].
      I had just started chapter three, “It is a very old artifact, quite unrepairable in these later days, whose workings are frozen w/disuse. I feel the necessary parts would be well beyond availability.”.

      So, suppose “nature” is some ancient, almost God-like technology, and that the current “temporary” owners are thinking to replace that ‘copyrighted’ tech; w/their own tech, simply by adding a nonsense “something”. Sort of like gangs do these days w/

    • Robert Barricklow on May 25, 2022 at 4:34 pm

      What is a day w/o constant interruptions and my Chinese keyboard forcing its presence to attention? That day, would not be today.
      Let’s see…? I was right in gang territory w/DNA graffiti, indicating territorial dominance.
      If there was an ownership tag on Earthlings, and a new owner was trying to take over; in an uncontested inter-galactic court, then the devil would be in the nano-details; right down to the recognized inter-galactic code: DNA.
      Now, there looks to be gang warfare all across “nature”; as the new tech gangs are busily graffiti marking[bio-galactic-piracy] man w/copyrighted quackcines, taking nature’s bounty and changing its code in ever-so-simple add-on coding – simply to own all of nature – including You!
      That it certainly begs, the absentee owners to get some literal skin in the game.

      Now does some remnant of that ancient cosmic war know of some technical detail; say a length of time[some Star Trek Captain’s log], that would make certain life forms exposable to hostile takeovers, via various techniques, like inter-galactic biopiracy, in the form of gang-life-coded-graffiti?

      Very hard at work but in a more controlled environment and out of sight.

  15. kalamona on May 25, 2022 at 9:25 am

    hello all
    great find!
    it definitely looks technology. i would even argue that the one on the left looks like a sonic device, a disco mushroom speaker-freaker, the right one is a terrifying grinding machine. both of them use torsion-inflexion axes (6), so they seem to have a dodekahedral structure. just thinking out loud, not an expert. the grinding one looks really grim. what purpose could this structure serve?
    we had some dices in the 20th century. they were spinning on 3-4-5-6-10 axes sowing mathematical fate into living imagination. then here comes 2022, and one sees decades old rpg-dices sliced into fossil-nanotech. quite a ride!
    first it was hard to believe that the pictures (colored AND monochrome) belong rogether, but.. yes, the first thought was tech, nanotech. now and then everything comes to light. even more light.

  16. Awake on May 25, 2022 at 9:05 am

    Excellent Article Dr. JPF. I have been saying for years that the Bible actually refers to ancient advance civilizations and the stories of their heights, falls as well as the morals / ethics and social structures needed to NOT make the same mistakes they did. All needed as we rebuild our civilization to those technological levels again.

    In my opinion, both pictures presented look like some form of machines and technology. The picture on the left reminds me of one of those suction toys you throw against the wall, and it slowly crawls back down the wall using its suction cups. My guess is that on a micro scale it could be used as some form of arterial cleaning / delivery device. The picture on the right looks like those serrated and angled discs could be a form of propulsion as well as microsurgery to remove clotted blood or flesh. My guess is some form of programming (DNA) as well. Think of thousands of these working together in whatever programmed function the body requires to keep the system running in optimal condition. Well that was fun to consider before I even had my first cup of coffee…lol.

  17. Michael UK on May 25, 2022 at 8:54 am

    Thinking about it, both pictures look like something that has been intelligently designed.
    The first picture looks like loud speakers or radio dishes.
    The second picture looks like wheels and cogs in a clock mechanism.
    Is their DNA coding random evolution by natural selection, or are they intelligently designed?

  18. Jay on May 25, 2022 at 7:31 am

    Dr JPF, firstly we need to understand what really means Artificial Intelligence. And key word is Artificial. Which means Created. By something or someone. And it doesn’t matter what scale it is- nano, micro or bigger. AI composition doesn’t matter either – principle behind them all is exactly the same. As for your question, my first thought was that I am looking at nanomachine.
