In a recent article, Connecting the Dots on Humanity’s Untold Genetic History, we warned readers that we had drawn inspiration from an early draft that had long occupied second-last position in our list of prospective article topics. Since resurrecting that article at the end of August, other new and compelling avenues of exploration have opened up to us, but having dipped into the “bottom of the barrel”, the problem we now face is that the draft awarded last position is its logical follow up, and extends upon what was raised in that previous article. Given the gravity of our current work, if we put off writing this sequel until we are again lacking in alternatives, it may be months or years before the need may reappear.
We need to point out, however, that this article’s poor ranking is not due to faulty logic or unsound conclusions, but is the result of a disappointing lack of conventional archaeology or current research undertaken by the mainstream.
In our previous article we began by immersing ourselves in genetic and chromosomal analysis before straying into the supposed recollections of the Roswell Alien. This time around we will not make reference to any scientific study nor interview with any sentient being. This article is simply a collection of personal observations given by someone with no training or expertise in any of the fields from which we are offering commentary. From this point onward, everything we will present is purely subjective, and a little rough around the edges. Our only acknowledgement to any authority or science comes in setting a litmus test, a single standard by which we will assess other opinions and measure our observations…
To cite the words of one of America’s most prominent philosophers, Judge Judy – “if it doesn’t make sense, it isn’t true”.
Our last article addressed the possibilities of “two lineages”, but the discussion was bound to one strand of Original Homo sapien sapiens. However, as the Elders and Custodians of the Old Ways have made it clear that the Original gracile Humans are not alone, never were and still aren’t, we must also talk about the little people, the very little people, the robust Originals, as distinct from the Yowies, which are different again from the tall elegant long-limbed four metre beings.
It is because of these hominids and ‘hot button’ topics, and many others about to be raised, that this article and its companion battled for last-place on the bottom rung for so long, withstanding all newcomers, no matter how mediocre.
Nevertheless, when we were last on country with Raminjeri Elder Karno Walker, he told us that there are three types of Original people. Consistent to the recurring sacred pattern of three, only one of these Homo sapien sapiens – the gracile strand – descends from a cross between hominid and Pleiadean genes, while the other two types of human carry within them genes that come from elsewhere in the stars.
The Little People
We suspect that the other two groups of Original humans Karno spoke of refer to the smaller and taller species. The whereabouts and existence of smaller Original tribes standing just above and below one metre in height are well documented and photographed. One group of just over 50 little people, called the Dhimlani, were massacred near the Gold Coast in the mid-1800s, and another tribe of over 150 little people living near Cairns (QLD), called the Barrineans, were photographed in 1938. Two months later it is said they despaired of the new imported ways and walked off into the dense rainforest never to be seen again, or so the story goes.
Being mystics, masters of camouflage and considered extremely wise by the more numerous gracile Original tribes, they may be out of sight but…
Every Original tribe we know of have stories and names given to these little people (brown-jacks, bittars, etc). We once lived on a farm near Nimbin NSW, which is a mispronunciation of the Original word Nimbinja, which means “place of the little hairy people”. Dreaming stories share a common tale of little people with bulging stomachs, copious body hair, a distinctive smell and real fondness (not in a subversive way) for the children of the gracile people. They are prone to ‘kidnap’ young children, play with them for two or three days, then return them none the worse for wear – except reeking of the pungent odour of which the bittars are renowned. Stories of the bittars’ predisposition to seek out the young appear in both Dreaming stories and a very recent account from near Lismore NSW, where three Original children were ‘abducted’, played with and returned three days later.
That there were many small Original Homo sapien sapiens is a fact, however this narrative is half-complete as is the story of the second, much smaller and more delicate beings. This is where it all gets quite nebulous, but fortunately, it involves an ethereal presence that Evan has been privileged to witness personally. Says Evan:
“The car I was driving broke-down on a causeway, which was swollen with the recent rains. I had managed to limp the spluttering car over onto the opposite bank, however it stalled and would not restart. Unfortunately my only choice was to walk to a friend’s house which I had miscalculated to be nearby.
It was night, very dark, raining slightly and my journey would mainly be uphill. The distance between my current position and my friend’s house by car would have only been a few minutes but by foot it would prove a lot longer.
So I began my journey by setting out at a brisk walking pace. The uphill slant of the meandering country lane proved to be greater than I expected. So I lengthened my stride longing for a dry and warm destination.
Rustling in the nearby trees and bushes momentarily grabbed my attention, but was infrequent and most likely an animal scurrying through the bush. As I continued the distraction became more constant in frequency and louder in volume. Perhaps it was a cow, wallaby or some sort of nocturnal creature, disturbed by my progress. However the sounds now approached me from both sides of the roadway. It mattered not whether I stopped walking or continued; the source of the noises had surrounded me and was following my progress.
When I realised the noise itself was pursuing me, I tried to locate a source but could see nothing in the dim night. So I walked forward but this time with quickened pace. At this point I commenced to worry a little; the sounds were becoming louder it was as if something was crashing through the undergrowth and bushes in pursuit.
My ever increasing steps became a near run, I finally saw the origin of this intrusion into my reality. There were several small men on both sides of the road chasing me. These creatures looked like men but were small in size no more than 30 cms in stature, they seemed both solid and yet strangely translucent. There were at least 20 on either side of me, they carried sticks and actually seemed to almost glow in the darkness. The small people’s style of gait was nimble and graceful.
I felt compelled to run to my friend’s house. These little men tailed me all the way and only disappeared when I entered the property.”
The same smaller beings that are somewhat reminiscent of the myths relating to fairies (but who seem to straddle the divide) are also a part of a Ramindjeri Dreaming story Karno shared. He spoke of the local little people who were of the same size as those Evan encountered, who appeared in the material realm at will, and who had a rather peculiar and strikingly effective way of protecting their land or sacred sites from those who were unwelcome or ‘out of their depth’… people who strayed into the very little people’s territory would pass out and wake up waist deep in sea-water, with absolutely no recollection of either how they fell asleep or ended up being deposited in the ocean.
We were also shown by Karno and his wife Christine an entry in an old bound book, written by the highly regarded anthropologists, husband and wife team Berndht and Berndht, which confirmed details of the same story Karno shared.
The Bigger People
So ends our brief introduction to the smaller strand of Homo sapien sapiens. But there is still the issue of the bigger people which appear to have evolved into three different beings of ascending height. Beginning with the smallest of the three, the robust individuals have thicker bones, a bigger frame and muscles and a larger cranium capacity than the gracile Originals, and were living in Australia from at least 50,000 years until 6,000 years ago.
Whether the taller Yowies are an earlier proto-type of the Original robust race, being a midpoint in the evolution of a distinctly different Homo sapien sapiens, is unknown. The Original people who claim to have seen these human-like creatures share common accounts of beings standing well over two metres in height, incredibly strong and thick-set and without any visible indication of a neck.
Unlike the Original robust population which is well-established through the discovery of many bones and artefacts, the mere mention of the taller Yowies is guaranteed to raise eyebrows and elicit all manner of snide innuendos from people who think they know a lot more than they actually do. We are aware that to even suggest these hominids still exist is close to committing a cardinal sin in any academic circle, but the problem we face is that all Original advisers familiar with their cousins insist they are real and still roam the bush at their leisure, and that we must make mention of their truth.
And now we have.
But it is an obligation we approach with a degree of trepidation. That certainly is the case as we extend the boundaries of discussion even further when sharing details of the third enclave of taller hominid beings that also, like the smallest off-shoot of the Original population, seem to sit on both ‘sides of the fence’. Until very recently, we knew nothing of the tall, long-limbed beings standing over four metres in height. Read nothing. Heard less. The whole idea of thin, pale-complexioned entities that seem to be able to pass between the material and etheric realms was unknown to us, until Karno spoke of their presence on Kangaroo Island a few months ago.
We have to declare that we have never seen these thin giants, but that means absolutely nothing. Karno has seen them and that means everything. A dozen times more convincing than photograph or video, when it comes to matters pertaining to Original Lore and culture, Karno’s testimony cannot be questioned. As keeper of lore, he is beholden to the Original Spirits to accurately represent Original issues of importance and sensitivity. He is utterly unwilling – and unable – to lie about Original truths, therefore it is our contention that the taller beings must exist. In what only reinforces this position, a non-Original colleague of Karno independently confirmed that he too had seen these tall elegant beings. I still remember him pointing to an Original flag standing at least four metres high, stating that its head was “higher than the flag”.
Of the six types of Original Hominids we have discussed, three are agreed by academics to exist however all six are confirmed by Original Custodians and Dreaming stories. This means one version of events is wrong. Whether all six types of people are the outcome of some form of genetic rearrangement is of course extremely difficult to prove. However another avenue of analysis we began in our earlier article goes a long way towards substantiating our belief that something decidedly artificial and off-world is a part of our collective genetic ancestry.
We have made reference on many occasions to a variety of genetic and chromosomal studies, but within every example cited there also exists an inherent flaw: Junk DNA.
Over 90% of the DNA available to be analysed, dissected and discussed is routinely dismissed by genetic scientists as ‘junk DNA’. Deemed to be of no function, we are assured by mainstream science that it just came along for the ride and serves no purpose apart from creating genetic clutter and confusion.
We have never accepted this relegation. Just because science doesn’t yet understand its function doesn’t make it “junk”. In fact we suspect that large section of DNA that is spurned by mainstream science may well contain the key to our future and salvation.
Irrespective of what could be, what can be stated with certainty is that there are some strong indicators arising from genetic and chromosomal studies that our genes have been tampered with – and not always for the better. What they have found are spontaneous changes that have occurred over time – dramatic regressions, digressions and accelerations – which fly in the face of the assumed gradual progress of evolution, and give strong evidence that at least one of our ancient “lineages” was, at least in part, not from this Earth.
But first, let us reset the genetic calculations made between hominids and apes. The studies yielding a 98% genetic match to chimps, orangutans and gorillas seem to infer that there is a close and recent genetic connection between us. But upon closer inspection, the differences are more numerous and crucial, and in one case, utterly ridiculous. A stocktake of the points of divergence highlights how dramatically different was the path some hominids were to take.
Let’s temporarily ignore the substantial proportion of unrecognised DNA the experts dismiss as ‘junk DNA’. Before making any comparison, there has to be a dose of realism factored in; the study of Homo sapien sapiens’ known (ie. not ‘junk’) DNA has yielded a 60% match to a chicken. At first glance there seems very little shared between these two species excepting the most fundamental attributes all animals with legs share. Stationed near the bottom rung of the animal kingdom in terms of intelligence and sophistication, an animal of such a low ranking should not be our mid-point but our base-line from which to begin realistic comparison.
The Sagittal Keel and Voice-box
There are many features displayed by modern humans that are absent in all other apes, monkeys, primates and other life-forms. Of elemental importance is the existence of the sagittal keel fused on the top of the skulls of all apes and monkeys. It is a thick ridge of bone that runs along the crest of the skull and fuses it into that shape in perpetuity, limiting the cranial capacity. In such primates, there is no room for the skull to expand, whereas the ascending series of known hominids exhibit a gradual increase in skull size as they theoretically became more intelligent. Modern humans have no sagittal keel and that is a massive physical advantage shared by no other primate – but this factor does this not stand alone.
Becoming more intelligent over time but lacking the means to express thoughts would no doubt cause much frustration and hinder communication, which is why the voice-box is an important accompaniment to an expanding skull. The voice box was not present in early hominids, and although the jury is still out on Homo erectus, any species originating before erectus is universally agreed to have been unable to talk. Equally, there is no voice-box, nor a vestige of one, found in any primate or ape. In terms of evolutionary theory, the voice box seems to have been absent until a point, and then – boom – there it was.
Other features unique to Homo sapien sapiens include a different hip structure, large breasts that serve no utilitarian purpose, the loss of body hair, and so the differences continue. But within the areas of divergence there are two aspects of human physiology that deserve further consideration, as both contradict the basic notions that underpin the commonly accepted understanding of how humanity descended from the trees and evolved.
Swimming in the Past
What has never made sense in the Darwinian theory of evolution is a whole raft of features that seem to be aquatic which are displayed in abundance by humans, but not those proposed to be its closest genetic links. For example, the human hooded nose is so unlike those of all apes. The flatter nose of the apes makes it impossible for apes to swim in water without water filling the nasal cavity, something which is no longer a problem for Homo sapien sapiens. Acting like a mini-keel, water is deflected away from the nostrils and air is retained in the nasal passage, yet strangely enough – running counter to accepted principles of evolution – as large as the human nose is, we have a relatively poor sense of smell.
Crying tears of salt should also be the sole domain of animals who live in saltwater, which is the case with all land animals except humans. Female humans also display a unique feature consistent with species that live full-time in the water, sharing a layer of sub-cetaceous fat – just as dolphins and whales do. No other land-based animal shares this aquatic characteristic, but then again no other primate or ape’s off-spring begins life with webbing between the fingers or toes in utero.
The method of production and delivery of human off-spring breaks a fundamental Darwinian principle; methods which could not reasonably have come about through evolution alone and which place the origins of our whole species in question.
By proportion, pregnant women show the largest bulging of any Earthly animal. Human mothers become slower in movement, less agile and less able to fend for herself as her pregnancy reaches full-term. In earlier nomadic times, just to survive the immobility of late term pregnancy, she needed help with delivery and gathering food, and protection, and this dependency must have required that the tribe bond together in a way not common to other primates.
Similarly, a human baby’s head is the largest by proportion to any other species of baby. Its head is far too big for its body, the neck unable to support its weight. The limbs are so comparatively underdeveloped that they cannot function in any useful manner for at least six months. Until the age of four or five, development is largely cognitive, leaving the co-ordination of human limbs and fingers very poor, with progress too slow to ensure its survival in earlier wild conditions. In fact it takes many years or so before they are able to function at a level even close to that of human adults. Human babies also have no teeth and very little strength in their jaw, and cannot eat food unless it is treated and softened. A baby’s skull is not fused together at birth and continues growing until the skull plates join months after delivery.
Unable to even grasp or effectively cling onto its mother at birth, human babies are carried, fed, washed and defended by not only the mother, but also by the tribe, whose best interests are to assist in any way possible. Its extreme fragility and lack of mobility forces humans into a lifestyle to which no other animal has had to adapt.
In contrast, all other primate infants are mobile from day one, feeding themselves, thinking, looking and listening for clues and possibilities, and responding appropriately – and instinctively – to threats. Baby chimps are found hanging on to their mothers mere hours after birth; the limbs are ready and willing, the mind is alert and the group carries on with its business without dedicating extra resources to ensuring the survival of the newborn. From day one an ape will flee and instinctively react when sensing danger. But a one-day-old human baby however knows nothing and, in the the face of danger would lay passively, obliviously awaiting its death. As infants, humans have no innate sense of danger or survival instincts, and little natural intelligence. They are virtually born with a blank slate, barely able to think, move or do anything. They do nothing except sleep, feed, dribble and observe.
The helplessness of human babies creates communal needs and responses to which no other non-human animal has had to adapt. The fact that human babies are the most dependent and least capable of all animals born on this planet, that they come into this world effectively functionless (except to be cared for) creates the need for society – to deal with circumstances no other species has to negotiate.
The head is too big, limbs severely underdeveloped, survival instincts absent, and there is little in the mind-tank. A human baby begins its life by running on empty, doing and knowing nothing and are utterly dependent upon others for their very existence, for a period of years. This fact does not reflect the “survival of the fittest” principle of evolution, nor does it reflect a creature that has evolved and adapted over time to its physical environment. Quite the opposite. And this fact necessitates that a human society must have been uniquely co-operative and child-centric from day one.
How did this come about, especially since both ape and hominid share a common ancient parentage – or so the story goes?
The Final Word
At this point, we should remind the reader that these tales of helpless human babies, aquatic characteristics and other irregularities are restricted to only one of the six types of Homo sapien sapiens/hominids claimed to be present in Australia. And this brings us back to the vexed question – who or what made up the second part of the “two lineages”?
As we described in our previous article, a complementary study of the male genetic legacy of Original Y Chromosomes conducted “by Vandenburg and others in 1999” revealed two haplotypes unique to Australian Aboriginals, which of course is contrary to any theory of an Africa/Original genetic link. What was even more relevant was the clustering of haplotypes into two groups. In total, male chromosome can be spread amongst “41 unique haplotypes”, but in Australia different factors existed. And what only adds to the unique nature of the Original ‘blue-print’, “most (78%) of Aboriginal haplotypes fell into two clusters, possibly indicating two original, separate lineages of Aboriginal (sic) Australians”.
With that in mind, we are dealing with the proposal that a second non-sapien hominid was part of the ancestry of the Original race.
What was this second hominid, and where did it come from?
If a second genetic source was involved, how did they get to Australia?
And why is there no skeletal evidence of any non-sapien hominid in this country?
So far, we have examined the credentials of all possible Earth-bound candidates and come up empty. This time around, we kept looking and found nothing… until we cast our gaze into the night-time sky.
What is perpetually frustrating to us is the “unconfirmed” existence of the three other types of Original beings, of which none will be acknowledged and all surely ridiculed by mainstream science. Despite direct experience of these beings as told by Karno Walker, an Original Elder of the highest degree, and Evan Strong, co-author of this very article, our so-called experts stand united in alleging that the 40 cm and 400 cm tall Original models simply do not, did not and can not exist. And although mainstream science can provide no other explanation – neither reasonable, rational, nor scientific – proponents of the status quo insist with an arrogant sense of infallibility that Karno and Evan are therefore liars.
The sad truth is that we now survive in a cynical world where personal oaths and testimonies of even the most reliable and respected sources count for nothing, unless ‘validated’ in full by experts and sceptics alike.
In this series of articles, we plead guilty to changing our normal tactics by blurring the line between story and science. Until now, we have made sure that archaeology, science and reliable historical accounts were kept separate and independent from our interpretations and personal accounts. But in this instance, we feel there is no alternative. Nobody within mainstream scientific circles has any idea who this second genetic lineage was, or from where they came. The empirical larder is empty. Science simply hasn’t a clue. There is nothing of a known Earthly origin that can connect the evolutionary dots and account for the emergence of the first Original Homo sapien sapiens…
That is, unless we are prepared to accept the word of the Original guardians of the Old Ways and cast our eyes, and minds, to the skies.
Knowing who to ask and what to ask, as we do, the answer is simple. The Original Dreaming lore tells us our second genetic lineage was part Earthly hominid and part Pleiadean. Only by accepting that as modern humans’ beginning point does our genetic history, finally, starts to make sense.
