The Ant People

Were they Ancient Indians or Futuristic Aliens?

Crop design in Britain - Present day

The Anasazi Indians are a mysterious group of people that used to dwell in caves in an area now known as the "Four Corners" during the Archaic Period. Anasazi means "Ancient Enemy" by the Navajo, who now prefer to call them "Ancient Ones." Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah all converge at the "Four Corners," and Archaeologists have been investigating the homes of the "cliff-dwellers" since its discovery in 1888. Part of this area is in Mesa Verde National Park, Arizona. "Mesa Verde" means "green table." Have you read my article on the Grand Canyon & Ancient Mythology? In the late 13th Century, the Anasazi started to build their homes into the cliffs. Archaeologists believe it was for protection and to better defend themselves against enemies. After about only 30 years, during the 14th Century, they began to seal the doorways and abandon their cliff homes to never return.

The Hopi are their descendants. Hopi means "Peaceful People" or "Little Ones." They are referred to as part of the "Pueblo" People after the Spanish word for "village" or "town." The Spanish Conquistadors discovered the Hopi people in the 1600s.

The Anasazi started living in the area around AD 500, then left to travel south into Arizona and New Mexico, coming back to trade. Evidence shows the Anasazi traded with people as far away as Mexico, and were farmers of corn, beans, and squash. These three staples of the Iroquois & Seneca Tribes of New York, where I live, are known as gifts from "White Buffalo Woman." They are called the Three Sisters in myth, and are known throughout Native American Tribes in North America.

In Hopi legend, the Three Sisters were gifts from "Spider Woman," who also taught them how to farm. She also taught them how to weave and make pottery. The Hopi believe that we have just entered the Fifth World. When evil came into the Third World, it was she who brought them to the Fourth World. The Hopi agreed to be caretakers in exchange to live there. In every aspect of life, maintaining a balance between nature & people is the Hopi Way. Their ceremonial celebrations of this balance help ensure their way of life goes on.

The creation mythology that spans the different cultures in the world all have almost the same beginnings: Life was created from Earth. I find it fascinating that so many different religions, one not having been physically close in proximity to the other, has the same story. 

In Hopi Mythology, "Spider Woman," who ruled the Underworld, and her consort, Tawa, the Sun God who ruled the sky, used their thoughts to create Earth. Then "Spider Woman" molded animals and humans from clay, spread a blanket that she wove over her creations, and she & Tawa sang them to life.

After the Hopi made their promise, life on Earth was cultivated, and it prospered. The first humans spread throughout the planet, and they became different races, lived on different continents, and spoke different languages. But still using their inner eye, they could understand each other without talking, felt at one with each other, and felt as one with the animals.

Over time, some people forgot what they were here for. They forgot they made a promise. They forgot about "Spider Woman" and Tawa. People began to divide between languages, races, and different lands. Some humans forgot how to feel at one with each other and the animals. Animals sensed the disconnect and began to run from humans. Only some people remembered how to stay connected, and those people didn't run from one another. 

As a myth can go on, during the First World, Tawa had made insect-like beings that resided underground. But he grew so unhappy with the First World, he decided to destroy it. He sent out a call that only those who still remembered their promise could hear. They began to travel from all over the world following it. Even some people who couldn't hear it, believed them and traveled with them anyway.

When they were all together, near the Ant People's home, Tawa told them of his plan.

They asked: "How will we survive underground for so long? Surely it would take time for another world to be ready for us!"

Tawa told them: "Learn from the Ant People! You will survive my destruction, and I will create a Second World! When I have it ready for you to live in, I will come get you!"

Down under the surface they went with the Ant People. They saw how the insects had stored their food, which they had gathered in the Summer for Winter, and how now they went without because they were there to feed. Despite the protests from the humans, the Ant People simply pulled their belts tighter. That is why Ants have such tiny waists today! The humans saw how the Ant People obeyed the laws of creation, and how they lived in peace with each other. They dug rooms and trails in the dirt, and the people learned to keep warm when they were cold, and how to keep cool when they were hot. So they could see in the dark caverns, they learned how to use their 3rd Eye, which was the spot behind the middle of their foreheads that they communicated with. The crystals underground had absorbed the sunlight from above, and using their inner eye, the humans used the reflections to navigate underground. 

As the destruction of the First World was almost complete, and the Earth cooled down, Tawa began to move continents. For the Second World, he put the oceans where land was, and the land where oceans had been. After he retrieved the humans from the Ant People's home and brought them into the Second World, eventually the same thing happened again. Some people forgot and some remembered. This time, Tawa sent "Spider Woman" to lead them through to the Third World. Then evil invaded, so "Spider Woman" taught the humans how to get into the Fourth World.

Were they Ancient Indians?

If they hadn't been Ancient Indians, I don't think it's possible to have been any more imaginative about the creation of life on Earth. Just recently I read an article that was written about the spheres in Costa Rica. These were made around AD 600, span eight feet in diameter, and weigh 16 tons. There have been about 300 discovered. These are man-made, black granite balls that had been written about by Conquistador Francisco Pizarro in 1547. He stated that "the lords of the Empire gather every four years in the Country of the Balls where they receive advice from great wise men." They were already known to be MAN MADE. The only issue that I have found is that another giant one, the biggest so far weighing in at 40 tons and 11 feet in diameter, was discovered in Bosnia. In all, the countries that have bragging rights to their giant balls are Bosnia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Easter Island, Southern Europe, and the Balkans. No...I could not find North Korea or the United States listed.

I imagine that 1500 years ago, human civilization was incredibly inventive and creative. Especially without all the over-stimulation that we have today from our modern technology. THAT kind of inventiveness was their technology. The question still stands: Why did they even make them? There must have been some kind of functionality for them. 

Were they futuristic aliens?

Around the world, the investigation and testing of remote viewing, psychokinesis, telekinesis, and telepathy has gone on for decades. From Germany, to Britain, to the United States, humans are the most curious of Earth's inhabitants. We have the many different historically logged (right along with recent reports) violations of another's privacy to prove it. From researching the Inquisition to the Witch Hunts, we can be a very judgmental, violating species.

The internet today is 100 percent proof of how we have to know everything about another person. Plus, we love to connect with each other. If we didn't, the technology of communications today wouldn't be the way it is. We want to connect, but at the same time, keep a distance. People have become voyeurs. Despite all the troubles it can cause, I think the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, is a GENIUS! A nosy, extremely wealthy genius, at that. His net worth is just shy of 70 million dollars. It's all because he decided to create a social platform for the millions of other people just like him. The only other way a person can feel so violated is through mind reading. With all the different ways to express an emotion on Facebook, without even being on the same continent as the people who will see it, I think he's getting there! Perhaps it's a good thing he's also a philanthropist. I'm pretty sure the Aliens have been ahead of us on the mind reading curve since life began. Since they haven't destroyed us yet, maybe they're a tad philanthropic themselves!

You can read about telepathy in ancient texts, where they state that humans, and animals, have this ability. The higher vibrational frequency we are capable of is no secret. The Tantric Traditions from Buddhists, who have been aligning their chakra's for thousands of years, has become a widespread practice. For instance, have you ever heard of dog whisperers and horse whisperers? These are people who have become so attuned to their inner eye that they can "speak" with animals, and some get paid to do it. I love watching this video about a leopard whisperer! AND... look at the way dolphins interact! Humans and animals have an ability to connect and communicate on a deeper emotional level than we give ourselves credit for. I believe the messages in the mythology from around the world that say "Humans forgot and were punished."

We have MILLIONS of documented UFO sightings in our history, from Japan to Antarctica. Just recently, as a matter of fact. As reported by ABC News, Pilots reported their close encounters over Arizona on March 28th, 2018.

Not every giant granite ball that gets dug up, and not every light in the mid-day sky has a mysterious, out-of-this-world origin. I believe in Alien-to-Human contact cover-ups around the world. I believe that those in high positions of power have the ability to do it. I also believe that we try very hard to be honest with each other about Alien contact. Even after thousands and thousands of years, we are looking for clues to their existence; for clues that we are not alone in the vastness of our Universe. Who knows if ours is the only one? In the ancient texts of the Sumerian Tablets, dated to have been from 4000 BC and were discovered in 1840, the fact we are being watched is written about. They are called "Annunaki" or "From the Heavens." The Book of Enoch called them "Watchers." Were they Aliens too? Probably. We not only seem to like watching others, some of us like to be watched.

Who knows what they get from it?
