Reptilians Evolve First

Benson C Saili
THIS EARTH, MY BROTHER…

They are Earth’s senior citizenry and not us humans

About 65 million years ago, a global war arose on planet Earth. The two belligerents were not Earthlings at all: they were from other parts of the universe and were of different races.

One race was from the Procyon star system. It was humanoid, exactly as we are. Procyon is a binary star system, meaning it comprises of two suns – Procyon A, the main star, and Procyon B, a white dwarf. Procyon A is 1.42 times larger than our Sun and is about 12 light years from Earth. It is one of the ten brightest stars in the evening sky. The humanoids in question came from the fourth planet in Procyon A’s planetary system. They were tall, blonde-haired, and blue-eyed.

The other race was Reptilian. It was from Alpha Draconis (also known as Thuban), another binary star system in  the Draco constellation which is 3.5 times our Sun’s size and 300 light years from Earth. The Reptilians came from a planet called Tiphon, the fourth in order of orbit.  

The clash between the two foreign races was the first global war on our planet.

The first to arrive were the humanoids. When they so did, they established two colonies on Earth, one on the continent we today call Antarctica and another on the continent we today call Asia. This was at a time when the Earth’s land mass was essentially one whole, the so-called Pangea.  The land mass had already cracked and the continents had drifted from each other but not to the extent they have today: they were much closer. It was a time when dinosaurs and other giant reptiles roamed the Earth.

About 150 years later, the Reptilians from Alpha Draconis touched down on the planet. Just like the humanoids, the Reptilians had come to Earth to look for one very vital commodity – copper. In the annals of Earth’s history, copper has been vastly underrated (maybe deliberately so) but it has a host of key uses most Earthlings are not aware of that make it a highly-sought-after metal by advanced races from other worlds. Our planet was, and still is to some degree, very rich in copper, one of the reasons it has been a magnet for ETs.    

Reptilians are a very pugnacious and violent-prone race, particularly versus humanoids. Whilst the humanoids were prepared to co-exist with the Reptilians, the latter were not interested. They wanted to rule the planet and make the humanoids subject to them irrespective of the fact that the humanoids were the pioneers.  The humanoids told them to go get stuffed and war broke out. It was a high-tech war which was mostly fought in the higher reaches of the sky and in orbit.

Initially, the humanoids had the upper hand: they were very good at conventional warfare and therefore inflicted substantial casualties amongst the enemy ranks. Fearing decimation and possible annihilation, the Reptilians, who are the oldest race in our universe and therefore the most advanced technologically, decided to employ an experimental, non-conventional weapon whose exact consequences they were not even sure of.

The weapon was a special kind of fusion bomb and was meant to destroy life but leave raw materials intact in the Earth’s crust. It was fired from space and detonated somewhere around the Bermuda Triangle in Middle America. The result was so catastrophic even the Reptilians regretted having used the weapon just as Americans continue to regret having used the atom bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The radiation from the bomb was so phenomenal that the humanoids were practically wiped out, with the few survivors hastily beating a path back to Procyon, and much of animal life, which included the dinosaurs, perished partly from the immediate effects of the detonation but mostly from the nuclear winter that resultantly engulfed the planet and lasted for more than 200 years. The dinosaurs actually became extinct within 20 years. Forget about the oft-pedalled and now ingrained lie that it was a meteor or asteroid impact that wiped off the dinosaurs. It was not. It was a Reptilian-made fusion bomb. One of the fallouts from this same fusion bomb was the coming into being of new elements such as iridium for instance.

Having messed up the planet, the Reptilians took to their celestial boats and sailed back to Alpha Draconis. For the next 200 to 300 years, no outsiders showed interest in the wasteland and hazardous place that now was Earth.

EARTH’S FIRST GLOBAL WAR

In every cataclysm though, not all life goes into oblivion. Some animals survived the fusion bomb holocaust. They included fish species such as sharks; little creepy mammals (our ancestors); crocodiles; and some other small reptiles. One of the surviving reptiles resembled what scientists call an Iguanodon, which had developed alongside the creature we now call Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Although this 1.5 metre tall creature was a pure reptile organically, some of its external features looked mammalian. The creature was able to walk on two legs and grab things. This creature proceeded to evolve and in the span of about 30 million years (evolution is so glacially slow), it was able to think more or less rationally, living in caves instead of the open air, using branches and stones as tools, and making fire to protect itself from the cold.     

During the next 20 million years, nature divided this reptile into 27 sub-species. In the course of time, 24 of these species ceased to exist owing to primitive wars of dominance among themselves and natural attrition occasioned by evolution itself.  Thus 50 million years after the Reptilian-Humanoid war and the extinction of dinosaurs, only 3 Earth-bred Reptilian species remained.  These were very technologically advanced and had reached a stage of sophistication beyond where we humans are at today. Being so thoroughly versed in genetic engineering, the three species decided to merge into one through natural and artificial cross-breeding on the one hand and self-induced genetic manipulation on the other.  

The resultant, unified species was able to eliminate from its genome the dividing-prone genes so that it could retain its identity   indefinitely. At this juncture, which was 10 million years ago, this unitary Reptilian species ceased to evolve physically. The only minor changes that have taken place in the intervening period relate to the aspect of its looking more humanoid and mammalian-like in outward appearance as every other species does in the fullness of time. Otherwise, the species has not sub-divided.

This Reptilian species was the first civilisation to evolve on our planet and now resides under the surface of the Earth (at a depth of about 2 to 8 km) in inconceivably sophisticated cities.  

In December 1999, a young Reptilian female emerged from this subterranean society and gave a now famous interview to a Swede who lived in an isolated cottage in southern Sweden. Her name was "Sssshiaassshakkkasskkhhhshhh" but she opted to be simply called Larceta, which is Latin for “Lizard”. She said she was 28 years old and was a social scientist with a keen interest in terrestrial civilisations.  

“We live in large and advanced cities and colonies,” she told the bemused Swedish recluse. “Major sites of us are beyond the Arctic, the Antarctica, Inner Asia, North America, and Australia.” She confided that the entry points to the Reptilian underground dwellings were usually found inside caves but were not easy to spot by humans because their doors were fitted with a device that made humans see an ordinary cave wall and not the door itself. This device sent a scrambling signal to the human mind.

Larceta was interviewed on two occasions. At first, she appeared just like a normal human being. In a subsequent session, however, she presented herself in her true Reptilian form, which scared the daylights out of the Swede. The human form, she said, was an optical illusion she implanted in the minds of humans by telepathy, using a biological switch we have somewhere inside our brain which was  deliberately installed by the Anunnaki when they genetically upgraded us about 40,000 years ago.  

THE ANATOMY OF INDIGENOUS REPTILIANS

How do the Reptilians indigenous to Earth look like? The following is how Larceta described the physical characteristics of her race to the Swedish recluse:

“Imagine the body of a normal human woman and you have at first a good imagination of my body. Like you, I have a head, two arms, two hands, two legs and two feet and the proportions of my body are like yours. As I’m female, I have also two breasts (despite our reptile origin, we have had to start to give milk to our babies during the evolution process — this happened around 30 million years ago — because this is the best thing to keep the young alive. Evolution had done this for your species already in the dinosaur age and — a little bit later — also for ours. That does not mean we are now real mammals.) but our breasts are not as large as those of human women and their size is generally equal for every female of my kind.

“The external reproduction organs are for both sexes smaller than those of humans, but they are visible and they have the same function as yours (another gift of evolution to our species).

“My skin is mainly of a green-beige colour – more pale green – and we have some patterns of brown irregular dots (each dot of the size of 1 – 2 centimeters) on our skin and on our face (the patterns are different for both sexes but females have more, especially in the lower body and in the face). You can see them in my case as two lines over the eyebrows crossing my forehead, at my cheek and at my chin.

“My eyes are a little bit larger than human eyes (for this reason, we can see better in the darkness) and usually dominated by large black pupils, which are surrounded by a small bright-green iris (males have a dark-green iris). The pupil is slit and can change its size from a small black line to a wide-open egg-shaped oval, because our retina is very light sensitive and the pupil must facilitate this.

“We have external round ears but they are smaller and not as curved as yours though we can hear better because our ears are more sensitive for sonic (we can also hear a wider range of sonic). There’s a muscle or "lid" over the ears which can completely close them (for example under water).

“Our nose is more pointed and there is a V-shaped curving between the nostrils, which enabled the ancestors to ‘see’ temperature. We have lost most of this ability, but we can still feel temperature much better with this ‘organ’.

“Our lips are shaped like yours (those of females a little bit larger than those of males) but of a pale brown colour and our teeth are very white and strong and a little bit longer and sharper than your soft mammal teeth.

“We have no different hair colours like you (but there is a tradition to colour the hairs in different ages) and the original colour is —like mine— a greenish brown. Our hairs are thicker and stronger than yours and they grow very slowly. In addition, the head is the only part of our body where we have hairs.

“Our body, arms and legs are similar in shape and size to yours, but the colour is different (green-beige, like the face) and there are scale-like structures on the upper legs (over the knee) and upper arms (over the elbow).

“Our five fingers are a little bit longer and thinner than human fingers and our skin on the palm is plain, so we have no lines like you but again a combination of a scale-like skin structure and of the brown dots (both sexes have the dots on the palm) and we have no fingerprints like you. If you touch my skin, you will feel that it is smoother than your hairy skin. There are small sharp horns on the upside of both middle fingers. The fingernails are grey and generally longer than yours. You see that my nails are not so long and round at the top. This is because I’m female. Males have sharp pointed nails with a length of sometimes 5 or 6 of your centimeters.

“The following feature is very different from your body and is part of our reptilian origin: if you touch the backside of my upper body, you will feel a hard bony line through my clothing. This is not my spine but a very difficult shaped external plate-structure of skin and tissue following exactly our spine from the head to the hip. There is an extremely high number of nerves and large blood vessels in this structure and in the plates (which are around two or three centimeters long and very touch sensitive (this is the reason why we  always have problems  sitting in chairs with a back like this chair).

“The main task of these small plates (beside a role in our sexuality) is simply the regulation of our body temperature and if we sit in natural or artificial sunlight, these plates become more blood-filled and the vessels become wider and the sun is able to heat up our Reptoid blood (which circulates through the body and through the plates) for many degrees and that gives us a great pleasure similar to and even greater than what you humans feel when you have sex.”

OUR ANCESTOR SPECIES EVOLVES

Meanwhile, our mammal ancestors, the simians, had been evolving alongside the dinosaurs for about 150 million years and also survived the fusion bomb of 65 million years ago being very tiny animals at the time. Then 10 million years ago, they became land-dwelling animals from the exclusively tree-dwelling animals they used to be.

During the evolutionary process, they divided into various species of all sorts – the larger chimpanzees, gibbons, orangutans, etc, and the smaller baboons and monkeys. It was only in the last 2-3 million years that one particular simian species was able to become relatively intelligent, the species that was to become known as Ape-Man, Homo Erectus, or Cro-Magnon man over time and Homo Sapiens eventually.  Prior to that, this primate ancestor of ours was a simple, purely instinctive animal without an ounce of intelligence.

“We are a very old race in comparison to your kind, which was jumping around as small monkey-like animals in the trees at this time while we invented technology, colonised other planets of the Solar System, built large cities on this planet – which disappeared without a trace in the ages – and engineered our own genes while your genes were still those of animals,” Larceta iterated to the Swede.

“If nothing extraordinary had happened to your kind, we wouldn’t be able to sit here and talk because I would be sitting in my comfortable modern house and you would be curled up in your cave clothed with fur and trying to discover the secrets of fire. Or maybe you would be sitting in one of our zoos.

“But things developed differently and you believe now you are the ‘crown of creation’ and can sit in your modern house on the surface of the Earth in natural sunlight whilst we hide and live beneath the Earth or occasionally venture to the surface in remote and secluded places.”

What “extraordinary” thing happened to our ancestor simian species and how did Larceta’s species end up living underground instead of on the surface?

That we unpack in the next installment.

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.
