Oppenheim and Einstein Letter

The ancient history of UFOs and the unclassified document of Oppenheim and Einstein

(Read the article on one page)

An unidentified flying object, or UFO, in its most general definition, is any apparent anomaly in the sky that is not identifiable as a known object or phenomenon. Although its definition encompasses any unexplained aerial phenomena, in popular culture, the term has generally become synonymous with an extra-terrestrial spacecraft.

UFO sightings have been reported throughout recorded history and in various parts of the world, raising questions about life on other planets and whether extra-terrestrials have visited Earth. They have become a major subject of interest, and the inspiration behind numerous films and books, however, sadly they are also the focus of intense ridicule.  For decades there has been a move, deliberate or not, to diminish the importance of UFOs and create a public belief that UFOs are a hoax.  However, unexplained aerial observations have been reported throughout history, from prehistoric times until the present day.

Some ancient depictions of flying objects in the sky were undoubtedly astronomical in nature: comets, bright meteors, planets that can be seen with the naked eye, or atmospheric optical phenomena such as lenticular clouds. An example is Halley's Comet, which was recorded first by Chinese astronomers in 240 BC and possibly as early as 467 BC. Such sightings throughout history often were treated as supernatural portents, angels, or other religious omens.

However, we cannot just assume that what our ancient ancestors saw and recorded on cave walls or in ancient texts were astronomical or environmental phenomena. Like today’s sightings, there appears to be a small percentage of sightings that are simply ‘unexplained’, and many of the records existing from our ancient past certainly raise intrigue, like the prehistoric cave painting to the left, which bears a similarity to images painted centuries later in the 16 th century Summer’s Triumph Tapestry , and which also ties in closely with modern day UFO accounts. Oppenheim and Einstein - Ancient UFO There are also the Aboriginal cave paintings of the ‘Wandjina’ spirits, which appear to represent alien visitors.

Proponents of the ‘ancient astronaut’ perspective point to numerous myths and legends telling of ‘sky gods’ descending from the sky, and historical texts dating back 4,000 years that appear to describe flying crafts.  In the Vedic literature of India, such as the Rg Veda, the Mahabharata, and the Ramayana, there are many descriptions of flying machines called Vimanas which were used in warfare in ancient times.  The Vimanas were said to be able to fly in the earth's atmosphere as well as into outer space, distant planets and be submerged underwater.

In the pyramids of Egypt, archaeologists have found hieroglyphs that resemble the UFOs that are described in sightings up to the present day. Centuries later, we have the pre-Columbian gold artefacts found in Central America, which appear to be perfect models of flying crafts. Later, in the medieval period, there was an abundance of art produced which appear to depict UFOs in the sky.

Oppenheim and Einstein - Ancient UFOThe 14 th century painting called 'The Crucifixion', which is located above the altar at the Visoki Decani Monestary in Kosovo, appears to depict a man in some kind of craft looking back over his shoulder.

As the ‘debunkers’ correctly point out, none of these ancient depictions alone can be taken as conclusive evidence of the existence of extra-terrestrial life.  But they do, at the very least, raise the possibility that extra-terrestrials have indeed visited Earth, and that just as people today regularly report sightings of unidentified objects in the sky, so to might our ancient ancestors have encountered objects that they could neither identify nor explain.

Considering the above, it therefore seems sensible that UFOs should be the subject of scholarly debate and scientific investigation. Instead, what we see today is an internet full of fake images, hoax videos, sensational Hollywood movies, and misinformation that makes it virtually impossible for a legitimate researcher to pull out facts from the very large haystack of rubbish.

It also appears that our governments are not exactly forthcoming when it comes to offering information about their own research on the matter. We only need to look at the CIA’s announcement in August 2013 that Area 51 does exist, despite decades of denying it and brandishing anyone who dared to suggest it as a mere conspiracy theorist.  Fortunately, there do exist some scientifically-driven organisations, such as SETI and MUFON (Mutual UFO Network), which take an objective approach to the study of UFOs.

This brings us to an unclassified Top Secret document written by Robert Oppenheimer, an American theoretical physicist, and Albert Einstein, a German theoretical physicist, who wrote a joint report on the issue of “Relationship with Inhabitants of Celestial Bodies”.


I'm sure there are other living beings in the universe.

Yet, I wonder why we assume that they were/are cleverer than us?

Okay. So they travel around the Galaxy. That'd be one point to them.

Perhaps they come and steal our secrets?

Maybe they don't know much about oh, let's say, music.

Kurt Cobain and John Lord would have fascinated them.

Just sayin'.

Humans aren't just a mass of teeth and bones. Some cleverness and inventiveness exists.

Maybe they came searching for such insights.

It must be boring being an alien.

Why not?

Did no one notice that whoever wrote the document reproduced in lthe article did not know how to spell "celestial?"

In 1947 the World was stunned by the news reports of aliens and UFOs that crashed near Roswell, NM, then the Gov’t claimed it was weather balloons and classified it as above top secret! The truth is now out.... CIA briefing to Reagan has been released:

Many of the answers to these questions about aliens can be found in The Blue Planet Project Book.
The Blue Planet Project is allegedly the notebook of a scientist who worked on a top secret U. S. Government program involving alien research. The document contains notes and drawings supposedly made by the scientist who visited various UFO crash sites, and this info was released before he disappeared.
The Blue Planet Project Book was blocked by Amazon several months ago but it is still (last time I checked) available from publisher:

For one, I believe that this world has been visited and inter-acted with cultures from other galaxies. The method of their journeys are probably most confusing to many, albeit focused scholars, and lay persons.
Even in the Bible, the authors assigned to impart divine information, wrote of various ages of this world and contacts made, throughout the epochs. Such narratives are also recorded around the globe from ancient times, through many languages; ie: The Tibetan Book of the Elders,, and the Dead.

Where this race of advanced travelers came from is up for speculation, and research starting from the monuments, decayed cultural remains, and oral histories noted and visual around the world.
I've personally read accounts of the Vimanas from ancient Vedic text and have seen the remains from what appears to be a city destroyed by an Atomic Blast such as those thousands of years later in 20th Japan(1945).
There is no question in my mind that this planet Earth has been and will from time-to-time be visited by extra-galactic neighbors. Yes, Worm-Holes exist and they've been used before. Sometime in the future, our race will embrace that technology, but it'll be when 'we' wish to truly forge a future of our race in the universe, and not before.
Those technologies that came here and helped build various structures, have long ago learned from experience what and what not to do, to enabled their future and pass it on. They are the Elder Race as Sprague DeCamp refered to them and was again referred to by the survivors of the most recent planetary catastrophe, Atlantis, whom spread across the globe in groups and help found and energise cultures we debate today.

Think about it,and bless your lucky stars you have something serious to research.

During the Early Woodland Period (1000—200 BC), the Adena people constructed extensive burial mounds and earthworks throughout the Ohio Valley in Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Many of the skeletal remains found in these mounds by early antiquarians and 20th-Century archaeologists were of powerfully-built individuals reaching between 6.5 and eight feet in height (198 cm – 244 cm).
