Bigfoot Corpse

A claim that the body of a Bigfoot had been discovered in the state of Georgia created an Internet stir, but soon fell apart. The initial "proof" was a photo of a body in a freezer and plans to submit the flesh to a DNA test. Access to the "body" was limited to the DNA researcher, however, while the world waited with baited breath. The DNA test failed, proving to be human DNA combined with possum DNA.

"Bigfoot" fails DNA test
August 15, 2008
Results from tests on genetic material from alleged remains of one of the mythical half-ape and half-human creatures, made public at a news conference held after the claimed discovery swept the Internet, failed to prove its existence. Its spread was fueled by a photograph of a hairy heap, bearing a close resemblance to a shaggy full-body gorilla costume, stuffed into a container resembling a refrigerator. One of the two samples of DNA said to prove the existence of the Bigfoot came from a human and the other was 96 percent from an opossum, according to Curt Nelson, a scientist at the University of Minnesota who performed the DNA analysis.

The Zetas, asked to comment on this publicity stunt, quickly confirmed this was a hoax.

ZetaTalk Comment 8/16/2008: This was a hoax from the start, with the hope among the perpetrators that they would incur business and media attention. Their mistake was the DNA tests, which so quickly proved them wrong. Will a gullible public request and pay for adventures in the Georgia wild, seeking Bigfoot? Probably, but not with these gentlemen as guides!

It had been noted by skeptics that the supposed "body" in a freezer looked suspiciously like a gorilla suit that could be purchased over the Internet. This proved to be the case. What is unclear is what the hoaxers hoped to gain. Perhaps they expected everyone else involved to go along with the hoax, so that money could be made all around. Oops. It takes just one honest man, like the DNA researcher hired for his opinion, to expose the hoax.

Researcher Says Bigfoot Just a Rubber Gorilla Suit
August 19, 2008
Turns out Bigfoot was just a rubber suit. Two researchers on a quest to prove the existence of Bigfoot say that the carcass encased in a block of ice - handed over to them for an undisclosed sum by two men who claimed to have found it - was slowly thawed out, and discovered to be a rubber gorilla outfit. The revelation comes just days after a much ballyhooed news conference was held in California to proclaim that the remains of the creature were found in the North Georgia mountains was the legendary man-ape.

Per the Zetas, Bigfoot does indeed exist. The reason a body or any hard evidence other than footprints have never been found is due to a quarantine, wherein Bigfoot and man are not to encounter each other.

ZetaTalk Statement 7/15/1995: Bigfoot has fascinated mankind for as long as the two races have been in contact with each other, as infrequent and fleeting as that many be. The reason for this has less to do with Bigfoot's size and man- ape like appearance, which would be understandable on this Earth, as with Bigfoot's elusiveness. Gorillas, for instance, are as large. Chimpanzees seem as intelligent. Why is Bigfoot a fascination? The answer lies in his seemingly uncanny ability to elude detection. The reason for this is that Bigfoot was to house a group of entities who are in quarantine. They remain elusive because they are not to intermingle with mankind. In this effort, they do not go unassisted. Just as we have described how after the cataclysms the Service-to-Self groups will simply not be able to find communities of Service-to-Others, just so humans are not able to find Bigfoot. Bigfoot is there, right under your nose. Why are they in quarantine? These entities have been placed into a primitive condition at their request, so that they can return to a basic understanding of how to get along with each other, with nature, and ponder the wondrous workings of nature. Their quarantine is not an exile. It is a search for peace.

Has Bigfoot something to do with early mankind, perhaps an early model of man? The answer is, not surprisingly, yes! Bigfoot is indeed an interim model of one of the six races of man. How does it happen that only this race retained an intermediate model? How did the others not retain this? During the evolution of man, during periodic genetic engineering efforts, the entire race would be affected. All within a given race were in breeding proximity of each other, and the genetic alterations spread out accordingly. Bigfoot was separated, removed from the others, and moved into remote areas. Bigfoot and other entities in 3rd Density on the Earth will move with the Earth during transition to physical 4th Density along with humans, or move along to another world as transplants. At present, Bigfoot and the Men in Black are in Transformation along with humans. They were transplants to Earth originally, so being transplanted again would not be a shock to the old souls among them. However, they were transplanted, originally, because they were deemed to be on the same level as mankind, and the Transformation at this date has been planned for a long time.

Robot with a Living Brain

If a robot has a brain composed of living brain tissue, does that mean that the robot is "alive"? Such a robot was announced recently. The brain tissue is composed of neurons from a rat, but there can be no discounting that these neurons, controlling the robot, are living tissue.

A 'Frankenrobot' with a Biological Brain
August 13, 2008
Meet Gordon, probably the world's first robot controlled exclusively by living brain tissue. Stitched together from cultured rat neurons, Gordon's primitive grey matter was designed at the University of Reading by scientists who unveiled the neuron-powered machine. Looking a bit like the garbage-compacting hero of the blockbuster animation "Wall-E", Gordon has a brain composed of 50,000 to 100,000 active neurons. Once removed from rat foetuses and disentangled from each other with an enzyme bath, the specialised nerve cells are laid out in a nutrient-rich medium across an five-by-five inch array of 60 electrodes. Because the brain is living tissue, it must be housed in a special temperature-controlled unit - it communicates with its "body" via a Bluetooth radio link. The robot has no additional control from a human or computer. Gordon learns by itself. When it hits a wall, for example, it gets an electrical stimulation from the robot's sensors. As it confronts similar situations, it learns by habit.

This comes on the heels of scientists declaring that they have created life - a synthetic chromosome inserted into a bacteria cell.

I Am Creating Artificial Life, Declares US Gene Pioneer
October 6, 2007
Craig Venter, the controversial DNA researcher involved in the race to decipher the human genetic code, has built a synthetic chromosome out of laboratory chemicals and is poised to announce the creation of the first new artificial life form on Earth. The DNA sequence is based on the bacterium Mycoplasma genitalium which the team pared down to the bare essentials needed to support life, removing a fifth of its genetic make-up. The wholly synthetically reconstructed chromosome, which the team have christened Mycoplasma laboratorium, has been watermarked with inks for easy recognition. It is then transplanted into a living bacterial cell and in the final stage of the process it is expected to take control of the cell and in effect become a new life form.

Where is this leading? Will mankind create thinking robots, the type portrayed in movies which can assert independence from their programming and run amuck?

"I, Robot" (2004)
Inspired by the classic story collection by famed science fiction writer Isaac Asimov, "I, Robot" is a thriller in which a detective investigates a crime that might have been perpetrated by a robot­ even though this futuristic society's Three Laws of Robotics dictate that such an event is an impossibility.

A.I., Artificial Intelligence
It is a time when natural resources are limited and technology is advancing at an astronomical pace. Where you live is monitored; what you eat is engineered; and the person serving you is not a person at all. It's artificial. Gardening, housekeeping, companionship -- there is a robot for every need. Except love. Emotion is the last, controversial frontier in robot evolution. Robots are seen as sophisticated appliances; they're not supposed to have feelings. But with so many parents not yet approved to have children, the possibilities abound.

Per the Zetas, this day will never arrive for mankind, as man is not intelligent enough to create new lifeforms. Half a bacteria or a robot using neurons instead of wires is one thing. Thinking is another. This does not mean that man does not desire such a robot, however.

ZetaTalk Comment 8/15/1995: A goal of research scientists is to create robots so effective at running matters that all of mankind in essence becomes akin to the upper class - waited on hand and foot. To be effective in these roles, robots would have to repair and reproduce themselves, or each other, i.e. propagate; be able to adapt to changing circumstances, i.e. learn; and, since mankind can't be bothered, make logical determinations, i.e. think. Standing between the robot and sentient life forms, then, lies only emotion - hopes, caring, desire, rage - the motivators. In pursuit of this dream servant, scientists are casting a jealous eye on biological elements, which can propagate, learn, and think.

But biological elements invariably carry the capacity for emotions. Even the amoeba reacts to defend itself, to escape, and moves toward that which it desires. Where is the line to be drawn? Do we, the Zetas, not use a massive computer for data storage and communication between alien groups in the Service-to-Other orientation, and does this computer not use biological components? We equate this to your use of wood and leather, as the biological elements we use are not alive. They cannot propagate, nor do they move to defend themselves or move toward that which they desire. They do not have desire. They are dead. These are the ethical guidelines we use in creating robots, but these are not simply guidelines we have determined among ourselves. The Council of Worlds, which oversees all situations where one intelligent life form can enslave another, forbids the use of living biological material as components of thinking machines.

The robot that propagates, learns, thinks, and as all life has emotion is alive, yet enslaved, as controls would surely be put into place to prevent the servant class from arising. Thus, media scenarios such as The Stepford Wives, or The Terminator, or Star Trek's Data would not be allowed to develop, not even if scientists on your world managed to develop them, which is far from likely. That those in [young worlds], who are emerging souls in the process of determining a spiritual orientation, would attempt to do so is one of the reasons for limiting the capabilities on your world. Mankind, in short, is too dumb to create a handy-dandy version of intelligent, sentient life. One, per their desires, which would never break down or talk back, would always look good, be compliant in bed, foresee one's needs, repair the car, be infinitely loyal, smart as a whip but never look down on the master, and never suffer from neglect. The child's dream.

Moon Phases

The Moon is not presenting a normal or expected face. This has been the case since 2004, after Planet X arrived in the inner solar system. What has been noticed by many is that the Moon is too far north during half the monthly cycle, then too far to the south for the other half. The Moon travels in a nearly circular orbit, around the Earth's middle, with only a 5° offset from the ecliptic. But the orbit became extreme in 2004, invoking reports on the Internet. The Moon orbit, like a hat tilted offset on a head, was consistently reported to be too far North when waxing after a new Moon, and too far South during waning after a full Moon.

ZetaTalk Explanation 3/11/2005: The Moon, as a bead on the edge of the hat rim traveling around the hat, is seen in the extreme North during one part of the month, and at the extreme South two weeks later. Why? A turmoil, mostly present at the Ecliptic, which the Moon normally rides. The easy out for the Moon is to avoid the crowded lane, which it does by being too high, and then too low, for the majority of its orbit.

This aberrant orbit caused the face of the "Man on the Moon" to appear to rotate too far each night. The Moon will appear to be upside down if viewed from the S Pole versus the N Pole, and every change in latitude changes this view. But the view for any given latitude should vary only by 7degrees and 7 minutes, a movement called Lunar Libration, equivalent to the hour hand of a clock moving only a few minutes. But the rotation of the Moon's face during a lunar night moved from a reported 45° on March 7, 2004 to 60° by July 31, 2004 and then to 95° by September 26, 2004. This photo from the Netherlands, taken February 27, 2005 and covering a mere 3 hours shows an almost 30° turn.

Netherlands Testimonial
February 27, 2005
Time and again there have been posts about the rotation of the moon during one night's travel, but no one ever seems to have a camera handy. Well, I had the luck of a clear sky last night, so I took my cheapo 3.3 megapixel with 10x optical zoom and snapped some pictures of the moon. First at 0.55 CET, second at 4.17 CET in the east of the Netherlands. Both pics were taken with a horizontally held camera and 10x optical zoom. I took the 2 moons, the pics full pixelsize from the camera image, and made a composite today, and did some image processing to clear up the features of the moon and stuff like that. The rapid rotation can be clearly seen.

Spokane, Washington Testimonial
March 7, 2004
The moon appears to have rotated counter clockwise by about 45°. The reading I've done on the Internet this evening shows that my view from the Northern Hemisphere, here in Spokane Wa. seems to be the view that I would see from somewhere near the Equator. I have used a line drawn from the bottom of the large dark area on the western face and connected across the bottom of the Buzzards Beak to illustrate the angle changes that have occurred during the two month period. I have insert a horizontal reference to the ends of these lines, but it is clear that all of these angles exceed 7° 7 of arc. When placed side-by-side like this it becomes clear to the observer that there is disturbing and radical movement of the moon, as seen from the earth for whatever reasons may cause such movement. The Crater Tycho moves from a position low in the Southwester Quadrant of the face to a postion High in the Southwestern Quadrant, and then to a position in the lower part of the Southeastern Quatrant. I have so far heard many theories about the possible causes of this movement, but none of them have come from the astronomical community, either amateur or professional, though they have been called upon on several occasions to offer opinions.

Now there is yet another aberration. The phases of the Moon seem to be coming early!

Maine Testimonial
August 16, 2008
Is it possible that the tables for the full moon peak are off by more than one day? This is the second or third month that the full moon apparently reaches its peak at least one day or more before the calendar date for it. I would swear the moon approached full Thursday morning the 14th when it says the 16th on the calendar. During the Boston Red Sox game at the end on Wednesday night the 13th, they flashed to the moon from Boston, and it was on the verge of full it seemed, same as outside from Maine.

Per the Zetas, this is another indication and result from the Moon’s aberrant orbit, as it has been taking a shortcut from its normal path around the Earth’s fat middle.

ZetaTalk Explanation 8/16/2008: It has been noted and documented on the ZetaTalk website that the Moon's orbit is tilted too far to the north during half the period, and too far to the south during the other half. This makes the distance across the face of the Earth shorter, as the Earth is broader at her middle, at the Equator. Taking a route over land above or below the equator is a shortcut, so to speak. So gradually the Moon has gained on her regular 28 day orbit period, and thus peaking earlier than in the tables, as you noted.
