NEW HUMAN ANCESTOR FOUND IN GENOME
The moment I read the title of the following article shared by E.J., I knew I'd be blogging about it. It is one of those stories that vaults directly into the "finals" pile and doesn't even go through my normal Sunday email sorting process. This one is hugely important because in my estimation it corroborates some of my high octane speculations over the years in so many ways. Here's the story:
Now if the title of the article alone is not enough to get your noodle baking, then consider the following:
Nobody knows who she was, just that she was different: A teenage girl from over 50,000 years ago of such odd uniqueness she appeared to be a 'hybrid' ancestor to modern humans that scientists hadn't seen before.Only recently, researchers have uncovered evidence she wasn't alone. In a 2019 study analyzing the tangled mess of humanity's prehistory, scientists used artificial intelligence (AI) to identify an unknown human ancestor species that modern humans encountered – and shared dalliances with – on the long trek out of Africa millennia ago.
"About 80,000 years ago, the so-called Out of Africa occurred, when part of the human population, which already consisted of modern humans, abandoned the African continent and migrated to other continents, giving rise to all the current populations," explained evolutionary biologist Jaume Bertranpetit from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Spain.
As modern humans forged this path into the landmass of Eurasia, they forged some other things too – breeding with ancient and extinct hominids from other species.But in this study, a third ex from long ago was isolated in Eurasian DNA, thanks to deep learning algorithms sifting through a complex mass of ancient and modern human genetic code.
Using a statistical technique called Bayesian inference, the researchers found evidence of what they call a "third introgression" – a 'ghost' archaic population that modern humans interbred with during the African exodus.
"This population is either related to the Neanderthal-Denisova clade or diverged early from the Denisova lineage," the researchers wrote in their paper, meaning that it's possible this third population in humanity's sexual history was possibly a mix themselves of Neanderthals and Denisovans.
In a sense, from the vantage point of deep learning, it's a hypothetical corroboration of sorts of the teenage girl 'hybrid fossil' identified in 2018; although there's still more work to be done, and the research projects themselves aren't directly linked.
Now I'm bold to suggest that the real news here is not the discovery of an unknown "third sex partner" in the human genomic tree, nor that this is some magical missing link. All that this part of the story suggests is that homo sapiens sapiens is able to mix it up and literally mingle with other species of homo. In short, we have genetic cousins. This is not news to anyone reading ancient texts and taking them at their word that someone "out there" came "down here" and considerably broadened the gene pool. The result of the miscegenation was "not favourable" if many of those old stories are taken seriously, but that's not my point either.
My point is the old stories themselves.
For many years I've been advancing the high octane speculation that one very occulted purpose of the human genome project was to find, and identify, any strains in humanity that are "not from here," if such a thing were possible. One clue to this possibility in my thinking was that at the time the genome project was nearing its conclusion, there were a few strange studies taking place among Europe's royalty, including such famous and well-known lines as the Hapsburgs and the Saxe-Coburg-und-Gothas (aka, the Windsors). At the time I speculated that perhaps similar studies were being quietly and secretly undertaken among - say - the Venetian noble houses, the Loredans, Giustinianis, and so on. One of my speculations went so far as to suggest that artificial intelligence could be programmed to search for genetic anomalies.
And that brings us to this story, because the article confirms the two basic points of my past high octane speculations:
(1) "They" indeed are using computers to search for genetic anomalies; and,
(2) "they" indeed are searching for genetic anomalies.
The second point is only a short step away from this:
(2a) "they" indeed might be searching for genetic anomalies that would tend to corroborate "the old stories" about someone "out there" coming "down here" and mixing it up with humanity.
If one grants that "they" might be looking for (2a), then we have to grant proposition (2b):
(2b) "they" might also thus look for concentrations of certain types of anomalies indicating a connection to "the old stories" in certain clans, haplogroups, or even family bloodlines.
The real question is whether or not "they" will announce any such connection.
Alas and alack, I fear "they" will, because I strongly suspect this announcement would and will be part of any "disclosure" announcement coming from UFOlogy. Recently the government and media have been playing up the "extra-terrestrial" angle, and of course we know the Davos crowd is anxious to crown themselves World Rulers. So much the better if they can claim a connection to the ancient gods and kings who ruled when "kingship was lowered from heaven."
Of course, what "they" always forget to mention is that in most versions of "the old stories", it didn't end too well for those kings or their subjects...
... See you on the flip side...
