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?
Seventy-seven years ago, on the evening of December 2, 1943, the Germans launched a surprise air raid on allied shipping in the Italian port of Bari, which was then the key supply centre for the British 8th army’s advance in Italy.
The attack was spearheaded by 105 Junkers JU88 bombers under the overall command of the infamous Air Marshal Wolfram von Richthofen (who had initially achieved international notoriety during the Spanish Civil War for his aerial bombardment of Guernica). In a little over an hour the German aircraft succeeded in sinking 28 transport and cargo ships, while further inflicting massive damage to the harbour’s facilities, resulting in the port being effectively put out of action for two months.
Over two thousand ground personnel were killed during the raid, with the release of a secret supply of mustard gas aboard one of the destroyed ships contributing to the death toll, as well as subsequent military and civilian casualties. The extent of the later is a controversy due to the fact that the American and British governments subsequently covered up the presence of the gas for decades.
At least five Batswana were killed and seven critically wounded during the raid, with one of the wounded being miraculously rescued floating unconscious out to sea with a head wound. He had been given up for dead when he returned to his unit fourteen days later. The fatalities and casualties all occurred when the enemy hit an ammunition ship adjacent to where 24 Batswana members of the African Pioneer Corps (APC) 1979 Smoke Company where posted.
Thereafter, the dozen surviving members of the unit distinguished themselves for their efficiency in putting up and maintaining smokescreens in their sector, which was credited with saving additional shipping. For his personal heroism in rallying his men following the initial explosions Company Corporal Chitu Bakombi was awarded the British Empire Medal, while his superior officer, Lieutenant N.F. Moor was later given an M.B.E.
Remember: bricks and cement are used to build a house, but mutual love, respect and companionship are used to build a HOME. And amongst His signs is this: He creates for you mates out of your own kind, so that you may find contentment (Sukoon) with them, and He engenders love and tenderness between you; in this behold, there are signs (messages) indeed for people who reflect and think (Quran 30:21).
This verse talks about contentment; this implies companionship, of their being together, sharing together, supporting one another and creating a home of peace. This verse also talks about love between them; this love is both physical and emotional. For love to exist it must be built on the foundation of a mutually supportive relationship guided by respect and tenderness. As the Quran says; ‘they are like garments for you, and you are garments for them (Quran 2:187)’. That means spouses should provide each other with comfort, intimacy and protection just as clothing protects, warms and dignifies the body.
In Islam marriage is considered an ‘ibaadah’, (an act of pleasing Allah) because it is about a commitment made to each other, that is built on mutual love, interdependence, integrity, trust, respect, companionship and harmony towards each other. It is about building of a home on an Islamic foundation in which peace and tranquillity reigns wherein your offspring are raised in an atmosphere conducive to a moral and upright upbringing so that when we all stand before Him (Allah) on that Promised Day, He will be pleased with them all.
Most marriages start out with great hopes and rosy dreams; spouses are truly committed to making their marriages work. However, as the pressures of life mount, many marriages change over time and it is quite common for some of them to run into problems and start to flounder as the reality of living with a spouse that does not meet with one’s pre-conceived ‘expectations’. However, with hard work and dedication, couples can keep their marriages strong and enjoyable. How is it done? What does it take to create a long-lasting, satisfying marriage?
Below are some of the points that have been taken from a marriage guidance article I read recently and adapted for this purposes.
POSITIVITY Spouses should have far more positive than negative interactions. If there is too much negativity — criticizing, demanding, name-calling, holding grudges, etc. — the relationship will suffer. However, if there is never any negativity, it probably means that frustrations and grievances are not getting ‘air time’ and unresolved tension is accumulating inside one or both partners waiting to ‘explode’ one day.
“Let not some men among you laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor let some women laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames.” (49:11)
We all have our individual faults though we may not see them nor want to admit to them but we will easily identify them in others. The key is balance between the two extremes and being supportive of one another. To foster positivity in a marriage that help make them stable and happy, being affectionate, truly listening to each other, taking joy in each other’s achievements and being playful are just a few examples of positive interactions. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “The believers who show the most perfect faith are those who have the best character and the best of you are those who are best to their wives”
Another characteristic of happy marriages is empathy; understanding your spouses’ perspective by putting oneself in his or her shoes. By showing that understanding and identifying with your spouse is important for relationship satisfaction. Spouses are more likely to feel good about their marriage and if their partner expresses empathy towards them. Husbands and wives are more content in their relationships when they feel that their partners understand their thoughts and feelings.
Successful married couples grow with each other; it simply isn’t wise to put any person in charge of your happiness. You must be happy with yourself before anyone else can be. You are responsible for your actions, your attitudes and your happiness. Your spouse just enhances those things in your life. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers.”
Successful marriages involve both spouses’ commitment to the relationship. The married couple should learn the art of compromise and this usually takes years. The largest parts of compromise are openness to the other’s point of view and good communication when differences arise.
When two people are truly dedicated to making their marriage work, despite the unavoidable challenges and obstacles that come, they are much more likely to have a relationship that lasts. Husbands and wives who only focus on themselves and their own desires are not as likely to find joy and satisfaction in their relationships.
Another basic need in a relationship is each partner wants to feel valued and respected. When people feel that their spouses truly accept them for who they are, they are usually more secure and confident in their relationships. Often, there is conflict in marriage because partners cannot accept the individual preferences of their spouses and try to demand change from one another. When one person tries to force change from another, he or she is usually met with resistance.
However, change is much more likely to occur when spouses respect differences and accept each other unconditionally. Basic acceptance is vital to a happy marriage. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “It is the generous (in character) who is good to women, and it is the wicked who insults them.” “Overlook (any human faults) with gracious forgiveness.” (Quran 15:85)
COMPASSION, MUTUAL LOVE AND RESPECT
Other important components of successful marriages are love, compassion and respect for each other. The fact is, as time passes and life becomes increasingly complicated, the marriage is often stressed and suffers as a result. A happy and successful marriage is based on equality. When one or the other dominates strongly, intimacy is replaced by fear of displeasing.
It is all too easy for spouses to lose touch with each other and neglect the love and romance that once came so easily. It is vital that husbands and wives continue to cultivate love and respect for each other throughout their lives. If they do, it is highly likely that their relationships will remain happy and satisfying. Move beyond the fantasy and unrealistic expectations and realize that marriage is about making a conscious choice to love and care for your spouse-even when you do not feel like it.
Seldom can one love someone for whom we have no respect. This also means that we have to learn to overlook and forgive the mistakes of one’s partner. In other words write the good about your partner in stone and the bad in dust, so that when the wind comes it blows away the bad and only the good remains.
Paramount of all, marriage must be based on the teachings of the Noble Qur’an and the teachings and guidance of our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). To grow spiritually in your marriage requires that you learn to be less selfish and more loving, even during times of conflict. A marriage needs love, support, tolerance, honesty, respect, humility, realistic expectations and a sense of humour to be successful.
The past week or two has been a mixed grill of briefs in so far as the national employment picture is concerned. BDC just injected a further P64 million in Kromberg & Schubert, the automotive cable manufacturer and exporter, to help keep it afloat in the face of the COVID-19-engendered global economic apocalypse. The financial lifeline, which follows an earlier P36 million way back in 2017, hopefully guarantees the jobs of 2500, maybe for another year or two.
It was also reported that a bulb manufacturing company, which is two years old and is youth-led, is making waves in Selibe Phikwe. Called Bulb Word, it is the only bulb manufacturing operation in Botswana and employs 60 people. The figure is not insignificant in a town that had 5000 jobs offloaded in one fell swoop when BCL closed shop in 2016 under seemingly contrived circumstances, so that as I write, two or three buyers have submitted bids to acquire and exhume it from its stage-managed grave.
