ARI-AN Realm Expands

Benson C Saili
THIS EARTH, MY BROTHER…

Let us at this juncture pause to recap on what we have learnt so far about the SSS World of the Orion star system in case some of you may have lost track along the way.

The SSS race arose on a world that revolved around a sun in Orion known as the Suriya star. They evolved from a snake-like creature, which in itself had evolved first from an insect that here on Earth we could call a dragonfly bee because it had features both of a dragonfly and a bee. This insect came to be known as a KHEB. The KHEB insect in turn evolved into a more advanced insect that resembled a mantis. It was the KHEB mantis that developed into full-fledged reptiles that specialised as lizards, dinosaurs, and snakes, and it was the KHEB snake that eventually metamorphosed into humanoids who came to be known as the SSS race.    The SSS race were the first humanoids to evolve in the Milky Way Galaxy.  

“SSS race” was how they were known on the planets which they later conquered.  The name derived from a hiss sound that was a distinctive feature of their language, a legacy of their snake ancestry. On their own world, however, they referred to themselves as the NEHK race, which meant “Fearsome Black (mean-spirited) Ones” because of their reputed prowess as formidable warriors. But in the early ages of their evolution as humanoids, the NEHK race were not a mean and belligerent race. In the UDU-U age, the Second Age of the Heavens (that is, the cosmos) during which higher-order life forms (humanoids) began to emerge in the Milky Way Galaxy, the SSS Race were very spiritual. They were then known as the SURBAH, meaning “Royal Race”, being the pioneering race in the Milky Way Galaxy. It is from SURBAH we get the Sanskrit word sarpha; the Latin word serpens; and the English word serpent. You will now appreciate that serpent did not originally mean snakes: it was a unrelated name of a race of beings that happened to have evolved from snakes.

Over the ages, the SURBAH disappeared from the scene and in the Third Age of the Heavens, known as the OMAHK, their  descendants,  who were far more carnal than spiritual, were born. This generation became known on other worlds as the ARI-AN beings, meaning “The Holy Ones of Heaven” because the people of other worlds regarded them as gods owing to their longer lives and sophisticated technology which were “miraculous” in the eyes of primitive races.   It is ARI-AN which gives us the English terms “Aryan” and “Alien”.

On the ARI-AN/SSS World, females dominated. They outnumbered  men by a huge factor.  Females not only ran the show but they were better warriors than males. Males were looked at in the same patronising way we look at females on our planet. In the course of time therefore, it were females who took the reins after a series of wars.  All the thrones of the planet’s seven major regions were occupied by queens. Finally, when it was decided to cement global peace and therefore put an end to wars, the seven queens, who were also known as the SUU-SUU, meaning superior matriarchs,  chose one overall Queen of Queens, who went by several titles, with the main ones  being MA and AYA, her throne now being known as the AST-AST.  The resulting one world government was called the Royal Aghar of the Seven EKE-ENEs, meaning the Royal Realm of the Seven Queens. It is from the term EKE-ENE we get the English word “queen”, the Greek word “gyne”, and the biblical name Cain.

The Queen of Orion presided over not only the affairs of the SSS World but over a sprawling empire straddling the 9th region of the Shagari Stars (the SSS race’s term for the Orion Empire), which included our Solar System. How did this empire come about?

REPTILIAN WORLDS MAKE DETENTE

After the SSS World had become a one world government and peace overall prevailed and was sustained, the focus now shifted from making armaments to civil technology with a view  to advance the standard of living on the planet, to assist with scientific breakthroughs, and to investigate space. Typically, the first space-related technology a civilisation develops is the kind that can launch them into orbit – rockets or spaceships. We Earthlings did likewise. Official history will tell you the first man to fly in space was the Russian pilot and cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on April 12 1961. That is all bollocks (see Zeta Series). The first person to journey into space was a German. His name was Raul Streicher. Streicher was one of a squadron of 100 to 500 military pilots who were trained to become astronauts at the orders of Adolf Hitler early in 1944. Streicher orbited Earth on February 24 1945 and touched down in the Sea of Japan.     

The next cosmic destination a civilisation wishes to explore is its nearest satellite, what we call the moon here on Earth.  Since it is always the nearest heavenly body, a satellite is the first to exercise the fascination of a planetary civilisation. It is the first cosmic body a civilisation seeks to investigate. Of course, unmanned probes are dispatched there first: manned ones follow thereafter.  Again, we did the same here on Earth. Our first venture to a cosmic body was to the moon. Now, forget about the hogwash that our first foray to the moon was Apollo 11 led by Neil Armstrong. I know you are not aware of this, but the first manned mission and landing on the moon took place in 1958. It was a joint venture between the Soviets and the US’s National Security Agency (not NASA). In 1961, a permanent human settlement was established on the moon (more on the subject in a future dedicated series on the moon).

Once a satellite has been explored, a civilisation now looks to venture further afield – to a nearest planet. In our case, that  is Mars. Again in case you didn’t know folks, we have long been to Mars. It were the Nazis, again, who set the pace. They sent a team to Mars in mid-1945 using a flying saucer they had constructed (with the help of schematic technology supplied them by the Aliens from the Aldebaran star system) known as the Haunebu IV. The Haunebu IV took off from a new Nazi colony in Antarctica (again see Zeta Series).  We will at some stage in the future do a dedicated series on the Mars mission, which even the late US president Ronald Reagan confirmed during a high-level meeting that  took place at Camp David on March 16 1981 (see Zeta Series).    

The SSS World first colonised its moons, established bases there, and mined its mineral resources. Their moons now became a stepping stone to the exploration of other planets and moons of the Suriya star system with a view to garner further knowledge about the universe and to prospect for mineral resources. Later, when they became stronger and much more technologically advanced, they began to explore other worlds of the Shagari Stars in the process establishing further bases and further colonies. What happened was that as they spacefared, they encountered other Reptilian races who were similarly advanced and turf interplanetary wars ensued. Each Reptilian civilisation wanted to conquer and colonise another. In some cases,  a number of strong Reptilian worlds fought for the seizure of one or two weak ones. Eventually, after eons of warring against each other, they sat down and hammered out a peace accord.  They called it the Association of Reptilian Worlds. Under the treaty, Reptilian worlds were not to go to war with each other and if war arose between one Reptilian race and a non-Reptilian race, the Association members were to reinforce a fellow Reptilian race if called upon.        The Association of Reptilian Worlds was chaired by the Orion Queen since the SSS World was the most powerful of them all. In the aftermath of the peace treaty, trade flourished among the Association members.

THE MATTER OF THE MATA

What kind of technology did the SSS race, the most advanced and the most powerful race  in the Milky Way Galaxy, use to voyage to worlds in the vast expanse of  the 9th Region of the Shagari Stars? They had spaceships, or what the Sumerians referred to as the Celestial Boats, but these were not their principal space vehicles.  The SSS race had learnt from the ancient records of their SURBAH ancestors that there was a unseen dark wind that moved between the stars and the worlds and on which they could ride. This unseen dark wind was known as the EKEI-ACI wind (meaning “Wind that Carries”) or simply the EKICI wind in short. The EKICI wind was not made of air: it was made of certain matter that was very different from the familiar planetary matter. The ancient records do not make clear what kind of matter this was but I suspect it was Worm Hole-type matter.

Since the SURBAH were a very spiritual people, they were able to ride the EKICI wind directly. All they did was call up a “Summoning Circle” called the URI (something Luciferians even today to do when they want to call up demons from the Lower Fourth Dimension of the Astral realm), step into that circle, and immediately they would feel themselves being propelled through space by the EKICI wind to wherever in the Milky Way Galaxy they wanted to go.  However, the present SSS generation were too canal and temporal and so could not summon up the URI circle. They could only do so if they used the power of dark forces, which meant whatever mission they wanted to fulfill would be in the service of these dark forces.   

Of itself, however, the EKICI wind was not spiritual: it was physical and therefore was accessible by any beings for as long as they had the means to access it. In order to utilise the EKICI wind, the SSS race needed high-tech space vehicles but when you are going on a conquest mission which could take decades or even scores of years, space ships are not sufficient: they are too small, even if some of them may be the size of a city. So what the SSS race did was to harness what they called the MATA, or mother ship. The MATA were hollowed-out rocks the size of an asteroid, a meteor, or even a mini-planet – a miniature world effectively that “bent and curved” as it drifted through space. It was the MATA they turned into a mega spaceship, a drifting world equipped with everything they needed to survive for countless years and accommodate all the weaponry required to conquer or even destroy a planet. MATA is the original source of our English words such as meteor, metal, metastasise, etc, not what official etymological dictionaries tell you.

How did the SSS race make these MATAs? In our solar system, we could make one from a captured asteroid. For example, the two moons of Mars, called Phobos and Deimos, are captured asteroids, we now know. If our planet were close enough to the Oort Cloud, the ring of floating rock debris that encircles our Solar System, we could also convert one of these mega rocks in there into a MATA. But asteroid objects do not begin as such: they are fragments of a huge cosmic body that for one reason or the other disintegrated. We know, for example, that our Asteroid Belt arose from the break-up of a huge planet that lay between Mars and Jupiter known as Maldek.

If the SSS race could afford a MATA, it could be that they too had an asteroid-like or Oort Cloud-like belt in the Suriyar solar system which they harnessed, or they were so phenomenally advanced that they were capable of creating matter.  Yes; you heard me right folks: there are civilisations in our universe who are capable of creating even a whole solar system.  That capacity takes billions of years to attain and if the SSS World was the first planet to evolve life in the Milky Way Galaxy, it follows that they have long reached that ability considering that according to the Andromedans (an Alien, humanoid race from the Andromedan star system that enlightens a select few of Earthlings), the universe is 21 trillion years old.   

TAKING OVER A PLANET

The overwhelming majority on the SSS race’s expeditionary force comprised of males. But they were accompanied by a superintending, two-tier corps of females.  

The first tier comprised of females who had what we would ordinarily term supernatural abilities but which were actually based on occultic (secret) science. These females were known as the OKIN Maidens. OKIN was a diminutive of the term EKE-ENE, or Queen in today’s English. The OKIN maidens came from the SSS World’s nobility and supervised the entire expedition.

The second tier was made up of females called the AMI-SU-EN Warrioress Maidens. AMI-SU-EN was a compound word which meant “The Queen’s Priestesses”. The AMI-SU-EN Warrioress Maidens were the best and most accomplished fighters in the entire NEHK army, as the SSS World army was called. It is from AMI-SU-EN we derive the English world “amazon”. The Amazons are said to be a race of formidable women warriors of Greek mythology but they are not mythical beings: they were real, only they were not from this planet but from Orion.

Some of the planets the SSS expeditionary force came upon were barren and lifeless. It was easy therefore for them to plant the ARI-AN flag their and establish a settlement. Others were already inhabited by primitive beings who were at various stages of development. Again, these were easy pickings for them.  But there were those planets that were already inhabited by civilised beings but were so resource-rich the SSS race wanted to occupy and colonise them. Here they faced fierce resistance. To subdue such people, the OKIN Maidens used two methods.

One was outright war, using their sophisticated weaponry. That’s what they did in the early days. But over time, they abandoned this method and instead resorted to psychological warfare. They called this AMI-KIRU, which meant “Break the Spirit”. This was essentially a mind-control programme which they administered to the leaders of these planets.  To do this, they used cloaking technology which rendered them invisible and then worked on the minds of the leaders using telepathy.  Suddenly, the leaders who were hell-bent on resisting them now became docile and received them respectfully and with awe. Now they offered to subordinate themselves to Her Divine Majesty Queen Aya of the Shagari Empire.

As for the rest of the population of the occupied world, OKIN Maidens used vaccines as a ruse. The vaccines were laced with chemicals that made the population docile and subservient and therefore easily manipulable, just as the Reptilians have done to us here on Earth. The OKIN Maidens also used water as a means to further dumb-down the psyche of their subjects. They strafed rivers with chemicals that targeted the brain.  As a result, their subjects became even more tame and submissive to a point where they actually worshipped the OKIN Maidens and their Queen.  And so using all this cocktail of mind-numbing tactics, the Royal Aghar of the Seven EKE-ENEs became the largest and most powerful empire in the 9th Region of the Shagari Stars, which included our Solar System.

Appendicitis: Recognising the Signs

29th March 2022

Many a times I get clients casually walking into my room and requesting to be checked for “appendix”.  Few questions down the line, it is clear they are unaware of where the appendix is or what to expect when one does have it (appendicitis). Jokingly (or maybe not) I would tell them they would possibly not be having appendicitis and laughing as hard as they are doing. On the other hand, I would be impressed that at least they know and acknowledge that appendicitis is a serious thing that they should be worried about.

So, what is Appendicitis?

Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix; a thin, finger-like pouch attached to the large intestine on the lower right side of the abdomen. Often the inflammation can be as a result of blockage either by the faecal matter, a foreign body, infection, trauma or a tumour. Appendicitis is generally acute, with symptoms coming on over the course of a day and becoming severe rapidly. Chronic appendicitis can also occur, though rarely. In chronic cases, symptoms are less severe and can last for days, weeks, or even months. 

Acute appendicitis is a medical emergency that almost always ends up in the operating theatre. Though the appendix is locally referred to as “lela la sukiri”, no one knows its exact role and it definitely does not have anything to do with sugar metabolism. Appendicitis can strike at any age, but it is mostly common from the teen years to the 30s.

Signs to look out for

If you have any of the following symptoms, go and see a Doctor immediately! Timely diagnosis and treatment are vital in acute appendicitis;

Sudden pain that starts around the navel and shifts to the lower right abdomen within hours

The pain becomes constant and increases in severity (or comes back despite painkillers)

The pain worsens on coughing, sneezing, laughing, walking or deep breaths

Loss of appetite

Nausea and vomiting

Fever

Constipation or diarrhoea

Abdominal bloating/fullness

Diagnosis

The doctor often asks questions regarding the symptoms and the patient’s medical history. This will be followed up by a physical examination in which the Doctor presses on the abdomen to check for any tenderness, and the location of the pain. With acute appendicitis, pressing on and letting go of the right lower abdomen usually elicits an excruciatingly unbearable pain. Several tests may be ordered to determine especially the severity of the illness and to rule out other causes of abdominal pain. The tests may conditions include: blood tests, a pregnancy test, urinalysis, abdominal  “How do ultrasound scans work?” ultrasound (scan), CT scan or MRI Scan.

Treatment

The gold standard treatment of acute appendicitis is surgical removal of the appendix known as appendectomy. Luckily, a person can live just fine without an appendix! Surgical options include laparoscopy or open surgery and the type will be decided on by the Surgeon after assessing the patient’s condition. Painkillers and antibiotics are also given intravenously usually before, during and after the surgery.

Complications

Appendicitis can cause serious complications such as;

Appendicular mass/abscessIf the appendix is inflamed or bursts, one may develop a pocket of pus around it known as an abscess. In most cases, the abscess will be treated with antibiotics and drained first by placing a tube through one’s abdominal wall into the abscess. The tube may be left in place for a few hours or days while the infection is clearing up but ultimately one would still have surgery to remove the appendix.

Peritonitis – without treatment, the appendix can rupture/burst. The risk of this rises 48–72 hours after symptoms start. A ruptured appendix spreads the infection throughout the abdomen (peritonitis). This is life threatening and requires immediate surgery to remove the appendix and clean the abdominal cavity.

Death – The complications of appendicitis (and appendectomy) can be life threatening, only if the diagnosis has been missed and no proper treatment has been given on time. This is rare though with the evolved medical care.

A degree of common sense

7th February 2022

Here’s a news item from last month you may have missed. In December 2021 the University of Staffordshire announced it would be offered a degree course in pantomime! Yes, that’s right, a degree in popular festive entertainment, the Christmas panto.

We used to have one here, put on by the Capitol Players, though it seems to have fallen away in recent times, but the spectacle is still alive and well in the UK, both in local ad-dram (amateur dramatic ) societies and on the London stage and most of the major cities, these latter productions usually featuring at least one big-draw name from the world of show business with ticket prices commensurate with the star’s salary.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the pantomime format, it consists of a raucous mixture of songs and comedy all based around a well-known fairy or folk tale. Aladdin and His Magic Lamp, Cinderella, Jack & The Beanstalk & Dick Whittington are perennial favourites but any well-known tall tale goes. There is no set script, unlike a play, and storyline is just a peg to hang a coat of contemporary, often bawdy, gags on, in what should be a rollicking production of cross dressing – there has to be at least one pantomime dame, played by a man and always a figure of fun, and a Principal Boy, ostensibly the male lead, yet played by an attractive young woman.

As an art form it can trace its roots back to 16th century Italy and the Commedia Del’Arte which used a mélange of music, dance, acrobatics along with a cast of comic stock characters so it has a long and proud theatrical tradition but you have to wonder, does that really qualify it as a suitable subject for a university? Further, what use might any degree be that can be acquired in a single year? And last but not least, how much standing does any degree have which comes from a jumped-up polytechnic, granted university status along with many of its ilk back in 1992, for reasons best known to the government of the time? Even more worrying are the stated aims of the course.

Staffordshire University claims it is a world first and the masters course is aimed at people working inside as well as outside the industry. Students on the course, due to start in September 2022, will get practical training in the art form as well as research the discipline.

“We want to see how far we can take this,” Associate Professor of Acting and Directing Robert Marsden said. The role of pantomime in the 21st Century was also going to be examined, he said, “particularly post Me Too and Black Lives Matter”. Questions including “how do we address the gender issues, how do we tell the story of Aladdin in 2021, how do we get that balance of male/female roles?” will be asked, Prof Marsden added.

Eek! Sounds like Prof. Marsden wants to rob it of both its history and its comedic aspects – well, good luck with that! Of course that isn’t the only bizarre, obscure and frankly time and money-wasting degree course available. Staying with the performing arts there’s Contemporary Circus and Physical Performance at Bath Spa University. Sounds like fun but why on earth would a circus performer need a university degree?

Or how about a Surf Science and Technology degree at Cornwall College (part of the University of Plymouth). Where the one thing you don’t learn is….how to surf!

Then there is a  degree in Floral Design at University Centre Myerscough. No, I hadn’t heard of it either – turns out it’s a college of further education in Preston, a town that in my experience fits the old joke of ‘I went there once…..It was closed’ to a ‘T’!

Another handy (pun intended) art is that of Hand Embroidery BA (Hons), offered at the University for the Creative Arts. Or you could waste away sorry, while away, your time on a course in Animal Behaviour and Psychology. This degree at the University of Chester teaches you about the way animals think and feel. Cockroaches have personalities according to the subject specs– you couldn’t make it up.

Happily all these educational institutes may have to look to their laurels and try to justify their very existence in the near future. In plans announced this week, universities could face fines of up to £500,000 (P750m), be stripped of their right to take student loans or effectively shut down if they cannot get 60 per cent of students into a professional job under a crackdown on ‘Mickey Mouse’ courses. Further, at least 80 per cent of students should not drop out after the first year, and 75 per cent should graduate.

The rules, published by the Office for Students (OfS), aim to eliminate ‘low-quality’ courses by setting new standards & requiring courses to improve their rating in the TEF, the official universities ratings system. Universities not meeting the new standards will not be able to charge full annual fees of £9,250. Unconventional courses that could fall victim to the new rules could include the University of Sunderland’s BA in Fashion Journalism, where students learn essential’ skills such as catwalk reporting and the history of Chanel.  They have only a 40 per cent chance of entering highly skilled work 15 months after leaving.

At University College Birmingham, BSC Bakery and Patisserie Technology students – who learn how to ‘make artisan bread’ – have a 15 per cent chance of a professional job within 15 months. Universities minister Michelle Donelan welcomed the move, saying ‘When students go to university, they do so in the pursuit of a life-changing education, one which helps pave their path towards a highly skilled career. Any university that fails to match this ambition must be held to account.’

OfS found that at 25 universities, fewer than half of students find professional work within 15 months.  Business and management courses at the University of Bedfordshire (14.8 per cent) were among the least likely to lead to graduate-level jobs.  Asked to comment, the University of Sunderland said it always looked ‘to find ways to improve outcomes’; University College Birmingham said data on graduates and definition of ‘professional work’ was limited. I’ll bet it is! As the saying goes, ’what the eye doesn’t see, the heart doesn’t grieve over’. What a pantomime!

Why regular health checks are important!

7th February 2022

With the world still reeling from the negative impact of the Coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19), and the latest Omicron variant (which is responsible for the ongoing global forth wave) on everyone’s lips, we should not forget and neglect other aspects of our health.

While anyone can get infected with corona virus and become seriously ill or die at any age, studies continue to show that people aged 60 years and above, and those with underlying medical conditions like hypertension, heart and lung problems, diabetes, obesity, cancers, or mental illness are at a higher risk of developing serious illness or dying from covid-19.

It is a good habit to visit a doctor regularly, even if you feel healthy. Regular health checks can help identify any early signs of health issues or assess your risk of future illness hence prompting one to take charge and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and other non-communicable diseases (even communicable) can often be picked up in their early stages, when chances for effective treatment are high.

During a health check, your doctor will take a thorough history from you regarding your medical history, your family’s history of disease, your social life and habits, including your diet, physical activity, alcohol use, smoking and drug intake. S/he will examine you including measuring your weight, blood pressure, feeling your body organs and listening to your heart and lungs amongst the rest. Depending on the assessment, your doctor will notify you how often you need to have a health check. If you have a high risk of a particular health condition, your doctor may recommend more frequent health checks from an early age.

Diet – a healthy diet improves one’s general health and wellbeing. It is recommended that we have at least two serves of fruit and five serves of vegetables daily. Physical activity – regular physical activity has significant health benefits on one’s body, mind & soul. It contributes to preventing and managing non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancers and diabetes, reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, enhances thinking, learning, and judgment skills and improves overall well-being. According to the world health organisation (WHO), people who are insufficiently active have a 20% to 30% increased risk of death compared to people who are sufficiently active. Aim for 30 minutes to an hour of moderate physical activity at least four days in a week. Examples of moderate physical activity include brisk walking, gentle swimming and social tennis.

Weight – maintaining a healthy weight range helps in preventing long-term complications like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and arthritis. It is also vital for one’s mental wellbeing and keeping up with normal activities of daily living. Ask your doctor to check your body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference annually. If you are at a higher risk, you should have your weight checked more frequently and a stern management plan in place.

Alcohol – as per WHO reports, alcohol consumption contributes to 3 million deaths each year globally as well as to the disabilities and poor health of millions of people. Healthy drinking entails taking no more than two standard drinks per drinking day with at least two alcohol-free days in a week.

Smoking –Nicotine contained in tobacco is highly addictive and tobacco use is a major risk factor for cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, many different types of cancer, and many other debilitating health conditions. Every year, at least a whopping 8 million people succumb from tobacco use worldwide. Tobacco can also be deadly for non-smokers through second-hand smoke exposure. It is not ‘fashionable’ if it is going to cost you and your loved ones lives! If you are currently smoking, talk to your doctor and get help in quitting as soon as possible to reduce the harm.

Blood pressure: Hypertension is a serious medical condition and can increase the risk of heart, brain, kidney and other diseases. It is a major cause of premature death worldwide, with upwards of 1 in 4 men and 1 in 5 women – over a billion people – having the condition. Have your blood pressure checked annually if it is normal, you are aged under 40 and there is no family history of hypertension. You might need to have it checked more frequently if you are over 40, your blood pressure is on the high side, or you have a personal or family history of high blood pressure, stroke or heart attack. Your doctor will be there to guide you.

Dental care – eating a low-sugar diet and cleaning and flossing the teeth regularly can reduce one’s risk of tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss. Visit a dentist every six months for a dental examination and professional cleaning, or more frequently as per your dentist’s advice.
Blood tests – annual to five-yearly blood tests may be done to further assess or confirm risk of disease. These may include blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels, kidney function, liver function, tumour markers, among other things. They may be done frequently if there is already an existing medical condition.

Cancer screening – various screening techniques can be done to detect different cancers in their early or pre-cancer stages. These include; skin inspections for any suspicious moles/spots, two-yearly mammograms for those at risk of developing breast cancer, Pap smear or the new Cervical Screening Test (CST) every five years, stool tests and colonoscopy (every five years) for those at most risk of bowel cancer, prostate cancer screening for those at risk (over 45 years of age, family history of cancers etc.). Discuss appropriate tests with your doctor.

Vaccinations – You should discuss with your doctor about the necessary routine immunisation, in particular; the Covid-19 vaccines, an annual flu shot, a five-yearly pneumococcal vaccine if you have never had one or you are immunocompromised and any other boosters that you might need.
