“The Greatest Mystery Above”

Sitting outside on the steps of his mother’s home that warm summer evening, young Dixon gazed up into the night sky as he always did. His focus was on what looked to be a star at first, he took notice of the increasing size and intensity of the glow that radiated from it as its speed accelerated, leaving a swaggering burn-trail swirling across the night sky . . . Seeing this would seal his interest in the beyond from that night forward . . .

         ******************                                     ********************                  

Years later, Dixon’s fascination with the beyond and its galaxy within the universe, would compel his wonder to a higher level of insight which fueled his desire to explore the greatest mystery above . . .

Outside of the classroom and away from the textbooks, sitting under the stars is where Dixon would reflect upon what he had researched and lectured his students about. The infinity above that had engulfed his world like a pair of large hands cradling a fragile egg. Compared to the magnificence of the universe, he viewed his home planet Earth as that vulnerable egg nestled within those hands.

Dixon marveled at the evidence suggesting that some form of life out there, up there, existed before life on Earth, but he yearned to know more about what really happened all those billions of years ago when Earth was forming, and how we, as human beings, would evolve on the planet that we would come to know as Earth.

Something did happen billions of years ago and more than once, as graphic proof of that is evident and  still remains on Earth. Though much of it already had been explained and documented, there still was the mystery of what cannot be explained, this was the very essence of what Dixon’s research and lectures were about.

Going through life casually just accepting our human existence without a question as to what our living purpose on Earth is and how we evolved here, was not something Dixon could settle with.  Because proof that we are not alone and never were ~ in the vastness of the universe ~ was clearly evident to him and the like-minded individuals with whom he shared the same journey with, the exploration and evolution of human existence on Earth.

Dixon knew that the technology for human interplanetary travel existed, but he was also aware of the growing cyber presence needed to protect future expeditions. The same lines drawn between countries to protect and insure air space above the lands would ultimately need to be established in space for the same reasons. Knowing all too well that future wars ~ cyber wars ~  would be fought in space to protect or invade cyberspace above Earth. Battles have always raged between countries for their lands to establish global power, and the same would extend into outer space . . . Dixon was concerned that the possibility of this occurring would be imminent, that it would complicate and thwart the future of a united global effort to pursue interplanetary space travel . . .

Undaunted by the political implications that would develop along with such major advances in technology, Dixon forged on with his research, and continued his lectures with the growing numbers of like-minded futurists who like himself shared an allegiance for a greater good, and an elevated cause for the understanding of our shared human presence. ~ Drawing a parallel back in time to an earlier historical event when the original colonies were forming across the lands by early settlers, establishing the lines that would map-out territories into states when the original thirteen were developing, and ultimately the original American flag being introduced to represent what would be incorporated as the United States. ~ The shared allegiance of futurists now, in comparison to those early settlers then, and the new frontier above,  would then form the new world territories, in cyberspace.  

Realizing the journey of mankind beyond the horizon into the future, and its growing involvement with technology and A.I, Dixon’s life would intertwine alongside, growing with intensity, remembering that same awe that he felt seeing the strange bright star-like specimen and the swaggering burn-trail left behind as it dashed across the night sky all those years ago. He believed in the real necessity of establishing sustainable interplanetary new world colonies in order to further the advancement of mankind into the future and beyond . . .

The greatest mystery above has always been just that ~ above us ~ and awaits our arrival . . .

“Above Earth”

I’ve always had an interest in space, interplanetary travel, and the existence of other beings within the universe. Another interest of mine closely related to space and what it holds for us; that being the rockets and the technology behind what is needed to travel above and beyond earth ? I would stare  (and still do) up into the night sky, not because I could really see anything, but because I could wonder about what (or who) might be out there, and my compelling fascination with living beings who might be out there. Other times, when the Moon was visible during the daylight, I would gaze up at it thinking that its position above Earth was intentional, that it was there for specific reasons. I’ve always felt that there was so much information to be gleaned, and our presence on Earth to me suggested that there must be or at least there once was other beings out there inhabiting those other planets, and that the day would come to confirm my queries. Knowing too that there must be others just like me who shared those very same thoughts. I’ve always believed that we (Earth) are not alone, and that the universe is a shared entity.

I had grown up with Mercury, Gemini and  the Apollo Space Programs,  Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, and NASA. I remember the anticipation and exhilaration I felt watching the return of the space capsules with the astronauts onboard ~ “coming in hot” ~ then with on-board parachutes deployed, and the broadcast from NASA’S Mission Control Houston. From the initial launch with rockets ablaze to the splashdown, seeing the astronauts stepping out with a salute, the realization of it all, knowing that they had been up there, out there, that this would be documented history in the making.

From the Lunar Module landing on the Moon to the Mars Rover, the Space Shuttle era, and the International Space Station (ISS) to Elon Musk’s SpaceX, I believe interplanetary travel is within reach. Maybe 10 to 20 years or more, who knows, but what is for certain is that those of us who share this passion (along with generations to come) for deep space and interplanetary travel will no doubt come to witness discoveries of the greatest mysteries held within the universe.

“Our Presence”

Whether we are living on a sphere, a planet suspended in the black void of space, or perhaps we are seeing our world through holographic visions already preset and programmable. Either way, we are within a universe so vast that it is impossible to measure time and distance in a way that can be assembled into our real-time daily conscious presence. 

It is a preconception before any real perception (of where we are, how we arrived, and where we are going) and ultimately, the footnotes to this journey of understanding life, death, and eternity, are bound by elusive secrets held within the universe itself. Therefore, we must explore our very presence, and we must question what is and what is not known to man. To peel away the layers of our known existence, going back to its rawest most primitive evolutionary stages. 

Take away (from that) what we’re allowed to, then go beyond, to another level of consciousness, intercepting a presence of self within a parallel universe.

Our presence has been documented though layers of time, and it is those layers that must be mined exclusively to establish a port of passage (portal) to another time in our existence and the mobilization of our conscious presence.

“Ascension”

Science, history, and research studies reveal or at least suggest that beyond our known horizon there is still much more to be learned, explored, and documented. It is important to keep in mind the magnitude of the universe that abounds beyond our Earth. Its infinite vastness holds within the footnotes to understanding not only why we are here and where we are going, but to understand how we got here. It is where science, faith, and fate collide, revealing the elusive secrets to life, death, and eternity. There is evidence to suggest that of other galactic civilizations and activities before us. Are we the last of the living (human) civilizations ?

It is also important to note here that while rapid advances in technology are happening now, it is only a matter of time before we the living begin to realize and explore our own ascension to a higher sense of awareness and consciousness, including our very own physical aspects as well, allowing the self-realization too that within the vastness of the universe we are not alone.

Then there is the question of the Moon’s presence, placement, and the theory of alien inhabitants residing inside its hollow core. Whether or not the Moon is even a planet, but rather an ancient interplanetary vessel with its perfect placement that shields (only) our Earth from the Sun. With our travels to the Moon and back, it lends the question perhaps of who (or what) has allowed our quest to continue. There are no other shared relationships between planets like this that exist. We may have been watching (them) but all along we ourselves have been in study too.

Beyond that, there is Mars, and again the Moon (and its alien inhabitants) that will aid our interplanetary travel, allowing us to explore beyond its horizon. Why then does the word alien even apply ? Implying that galactic wars will be needed to protect our Earth from harm when perhaps it is found that the so-called alien presence is not alien at all, but rather another civilization of beings that fear our presence as well.

It is time to explore not only our conscious awareness but our very existence here too, getting closer now than ever before to understanding our presence here along with our function and purpose in a new world.

We are at the threshold of a new dawn that will offer (for those who seek it) a portal of departure or transition . . .

It is time for “Ascension” . . .

“The Mars Antennanite Colonies”

Antennaed ~ A slender segmented or smooth sensory organ or appendage rising from within and breaking through the outer shell or protective skin layer. A specific sensory or receptiveness for radiating and receiving signals. 

The Mars Antennanites had been restructured and engineered to biologically form the growth of a single antenna-like appendage starting at the base of their rear neck. Burning through the surface of their skin first about the size of a quarter, forming  a crusty layer of tissue that would mutate into a sphere shaped nodule twice the size of a quarter, establishing the base. The single antenna would then continue to grow from within, protruding from the nodule upwards along the back of their head. Having segmented shingle-like rows of scales, larger near the base and progressively smaller toward the tip. When fully grown, the antenna would reach eight inches and about an inch thick, pulsating with life and having its own fused bio-chemical internal sensors. The specimen then would be ready to co-exist and communicate with Mars AI and to function alongside Mars IA, each one having been chosen specific to their genomal structure.

             ————*————                                                       ————*————                                               

As the new arrivals of the antennaed stepped down onto the descended ramp of the Excom Tridex, they viewed the progress of the Mars colonies, which had flourished after the great fallout on Earth. The cold air thrust system developed by the X-Team had revolutionized interplanetary space travel along with the orbital refueling stations, allowing the arrivals more efficient travel to the Mars colonies. New arrivals of the antennaed were essential to the inner structure of the antennanite colonies, enabling the survival of key societal roles such as bricklayers, farmers, blacksmiths, miners, architects, explorers, farriers, bakers, doctors, teachers and housewives, re-establishing what had been lost on Earth. The antennanites would then sync with artificial intelligence (AI), to engineer ongoing intelligent automation (IA), enabling tech-structures of antennanite colonies, declaring the Mars planet a stable and influential component of the solar system. 

There was a social ladder of sorts, with an under-core of chosen genomic phenotypes from Earth that were re-programmed and antennaed, some of which were assigned to the next level, the tech-colonies. Within these ranks would be several levels from laborers to teachers, and builders to architects. AI held within the master blueprint for IA advancement into a Mars future, 

linking man to machine, machine to AI, and future to the solar system. There needed to be an under-core to replicate Earth as it was before the great fallout, to begin again the development and restructure for a Mars future. 

The Mars antennanites had proved to be sustainable on their own, leaving the Moon to serve the daily traffic of galactic travelers after NASA’S “Moxie” experiment succeeded utilizing their Perseverance Rover ~ which had turned a sample of the red planet’s attenuated toxic atmosphere into oxygen ~ AI then replicated it to form the Mars atmosphere. The Mars tech-colonies then linked with IA to continue and stabilize the replication, ultimately culminating in a human bio-varium,  like a giant solar-bubble that would contain and preserve the Mars planet. Low-light adaptable bacteria was lab-harvested to generate cyanobacteria, creating a breathable atmosphere on Mars through photosynthesis . . . The Mars biosphere.  

The Moon, known as Area X ~ named after Earth’s former Area 51 ~  with its secretive elite-military maneuvers being done under the cloak of the Moon’s “night” and at over 200,000 miles away in the blackness of solar depths. The Moon’s “day” side however came to be a credible refueling area for interplanetary travelers, also providing equipment storage, salvage, and research testing. With Earth no longer inhabitable, the Moon had become the launching area for inter-galactic activity.

The antennanite colonies were designed and constructed through their own selection of viable human candidates who had within them a specific genomic structure that would provide essential links in replicating the human life form that once was on Earth. This under-core of civilization, having been antennaed and groomed for the AI interface, to communicate and  function within a Mars future. 

Through co-existence with AI, mankind did survive to some extent, and civilization succumbed to IA and a future bound within it.

A future on Mars . . .

A Briefcase-Sized Box Is Already Making Oxygen on Mars

SPACE01 September 2022

ByMICHELLE STARR

The Martian atmosphere, in its current state, is not Earthling-friendly at all. It’s extremely thin, over 100 times less dense than Earth’s, and is made up mostly of carbon dioxide. Any humans attempting to breathe it would soon find themselves not breathing at all.

But on that dusty, dry, alien world, a small instrument, a little bigger than a briefcase, has been reliably pumping out breathable oxygen from the Martian atmosphere.

It’s the first demonstration of the processing of in situ resources for human use on another planet – establishing a way that breathable air could be generated for a human mission to the red planet.

It’s called MOXIE ( Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) Experiment) and, installed in the belly of NASA’s Perseverance rover, it uses a process called electrolysis to split the Martian carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide and oxygen.

Between February 2021, when Perseverance landed, and the end of 2021, MOXIE produced oxygen seven times – and will continue to do so, the researchers said.

“Antennaed”

He awakened as he was walking . . .

Just coming out of a presumed sleep Lindar realized that he was walking along a deserted roadside that he had never been. It was very dark, the only light was from the brightest full moon he’d ever seen. He had no memory of where he had been or what had happened, he also had no conscious thought or plan as to where he was going. Just that he apparently had just awoke while walking. The back of his neck had a burning sensation, and when he raised his arm over his head to reach the area, he could feel a small round crusted mark the size of a quarter. Like an open wound that was still healing. Still he continued walking . . .

Lindar desperately needed to find someplace where he could examine himself and try to get a sense of where he was. He was wearing leather loafers with no socks, pinstripe dress slacks and a matching blazer, no shirt, belt, or underwear. As he continued to walk through the night alongside the roadside, he did notice a faint small light up ahead some distance away. It would be there that he hoped to find some answers.

Sometime later, as Lindar approached what appeared to be a dimly lit, single small building standing alone in the night, he noticed there were no cars parked outside. Finally making it to the entrance he saw this was a tavern of some sort, oddly left standing alone out in the countryside. Coming up the four steps to the doorway, he could see there were eight people inside and one bartender. They each were seated separately away from each other at different tables. Opening the door caused the small bell hanging from the ceiling to ring-a-ling, and the woman behind the bar looked up at him as he seated himself at the bar with no acknowledgement from any of the others.

Looking around at each of the eight that were seated, there were six men and two women, each sitting quietly staring with nothing having been served to them. The clothes they were wearing told of their former occupations,  bricklayer, farmer, blacksmith, farrier, baker, doctor, and of the two women, one teacher, the other a housewife. Lindar himself was a commodities broker. A few of them had the same burn mark at the base of their neck as Lindar had, while others had some sort of wound dressing applied. But there were two, the doctor and the teacher both had no dressing, but did have an extending finger-like growth about four inches long and reaching upwards. After taking all of this in, Lindar looked to the woman behind the bar and asked “where are we ?”  To which she smiled and asked if he would like his water now. As she turned around to the faucet, Lindar noticed she had the same growing appendage but was much longer at least eight inches extending upward almost past the top of her head.  She then stepped away to a dial-up telephone on the wall, picked up the receiver and held it to her ear. After a moment she simply said “they’re all here now”, and hung the phone up. Lindar was aghast, not sure if he was caught up in some alien dreamstate or if his own conscious reality had been compromised.

Again Lindar spoke to the woman behind the bar and asked “where am I ?”  To which she smiled and replied “Drink your water, it will help you. You will be home soon” . . .

         ——————–*——————–                            ——————–*——————–

Once again, Lindar found himself waking up from what appeared to be a desktop nap of sorts. Seated at his desk high above the city in a penthouse suite was where the office was for the newspaper he worked for. He had fallen asleep while going over his commodity reports, an interest of his outside of the newspaper, and was laying over the day’s top news headline story entitled  “Antennaed Infiltrate”.

Lindar then reached over his head to feel the back of his neck . . .
