Follow us: - What or Who are the Ultraterrestrials?

The term Ultraterrestrials was first introduced by paranormal researcher John A. Keel, author of the The Mothman Prophecies.

Keel believed that aliens, supernatural entities and crypto-zoological creatures of all varieties may represent the different manifestations and guises of some kind of unseen intelligence which have existed in close relation to human beings throughout all time, albeit in a parallel dimension.

At times, and under certain conditions, they can cross over into our reality--and some unique individuals have to ability to sense or perceive them. Keel suggested that the Ultraterrestrials were somehow able to manipulate the human mind, alter our belief systems, and appear to us in forms that fit our contemporary beliefs, e.g. angels, demons, jinn, faeries, spirit guides, or aliens from another planet.

The Ultraterrestrials are natural mimics who appear again and again throughout history, borrowing disguises from our collective unconscious, twisting people in bizarre and absurd ways.

“I had a vision of the group soul of humanity as a perfectly circular pool of intense living light.

All around the rim of the milky pool were a complex variety of sexual rites, a metaphor for all social interaction. Translucent Hindu deities swooped over the group taking the excessive energy of the shimmering pool and passing through the group as ecstasy and pain. I saw that the reason we were all brought together was to provide a psychic energy feast for the Gods and Goddesses. I saw my heart as the axis of karmic, earthly, and universal energies, transected by and uniting the polarities of male/female, birth/death, good/evil, and love/hate. To maintain a balance of forces we all fed both Deities and Demons.”

This visionary experience eventually became the masterpiece: Demons and Deities Drinking from the Milky Pool.

Notable researchers such as J. Allen Hyneck and Jacques Vallee have come to much the same conclusion.

Like a Trojan Horse, the Ultraterrestrials seem to conceal themselves inside of some form or guise that we can readily accept and explain in terms of our present world view. Just as an evolved, skilled predator will disguise itself to catch its prey.

One thing is clear, these predatory, inter-dimensional beings are mischievous and seem to take great pleasure in harassing, vexing, tormenting, and toying with humanity.

Some researchers studying the paranormal have gone so far as to say that the relationship between these entities and ourselves is the same relationship of a parasite to its host.

That they may represent some kind of etheric or energetic parasite that can possess, manipulate, and control us in order to feed off of the energy of our emotions and fears.

A parasitic organism is a fundamental component of organic life in the universe.

The world is full of weird parasites that can take over the will of a seemingly more evolved host and force it to do strange things contrary to its own nature and survival.

Consider the life-cycle of the sacculina carcini, a parasitic species which would seem straight out of a modern science-fiction horror movie.

Many of you have probably seen the "face-hugger" in the movie Alien, a fleshy claw-like spider that attaches itself to the face of its host to lay an egg in its chest, impregnating its victim. Well, the sacculina carcini begins its life as a feathery, pulsating jelly-like blob drifitng around in the swirling ocean currents until one day it happens across a crab, which it eagerly attaches itself to, and oozes and worms its way through the crab's exterior shell, invading its body.

Once inside the crab, the sacculina grows masses of alien tendrils which attach themselves to all the organs, muscles, eyes, mouth and brain of its host, and as it slowly feeds off of the crab's innards, the sacculina grows larger, bulging and swelling out of the crab's chitin shell.

The sacculina carcini ingeniously wires its own nervous system to that of its hosts, effectively "zombifying" it.

This is the horrific end result of a parasitic invasion: total possession of its host. Once the sacculini has taken over the crab's body, the crab will no longer molt or grow or mate again; biologically the crab ceases to exist, it has no will of its own, but its body is now being occupied and driven like a 'vehicle' for the sacculina parasite to manipulate as it pleases, reducing this once independent and living crustacean into a kind of zombie for the duration of its life, which will clumsily hobble around the ocean floor feeding the insidious parasite and its young larvae now growing inside it.

All parasites siphon the life out of their hosts in one way or another, but there are only a few, such as the sacculina carcini, which have evolved the ability to turn their hosts into zombies and control them throughout the duration of their life.

We ourselves have emerged as the ultimate predators and parasites on the planet today, our devouring of the planet and its natural resources has lead to mass extinctions of life, and inflicted tremendous harm and damage to the environment and life in countless ways.

For anyone who's ever been horrified by the prospect of a Zombie apocalypse, the terrifying truth is that a "zombifying parasite" like the Sacculina carcini could--given enough time, mutations, and adaptions--theoretically evolve to take over human hosts, where a person's mind and body is literally hi-jacked, and being operated and controlled by an invasive "alien mind". The infected would be little more than a clumsy vehicle in service to the will of the foreign, parasitic organism controlling it. The Walking Dead.

The only way to cure the infected person would probably amount to shooting them in the brain, which would destroy the parasite's ability to control the bodily motor functions of its host.

Essentially a parasite is an organism that lives on or inside of an organism of another species, known as the host, from the body of which it obtains its nutriment.

You've probably heard of the expression "As above, so below". One thing this expression tells us as that we can sometimes learn or deduce one thing through the study of something else; and that things that appear very different may actually be quite similar.

With that in mind, you have to wonder if it's possible that some kind of intelligent, parasitic form of metaphysical or spiritual life exists and is active on the planet today, organisms that exist on an energetic plane that we are normally blind to, yet swarming all around us.

If you look back at ancient cultures and religious writings from all over the world, no matter where you go, one of the biggest preoccupations which have absorbed the minds of shamans and priests and doctors for thousands of years is voluminous references to hosts and categories of otherworldly, disincarnate spirits and entities who have tormented and tortured mankind for untold centuries.

A good deal of mankind’s religious and spiritual practices and traditions is entirely devoted to elaborate prayers and remedies conceived and designed to protect us from some kind of hostile, predatory, unseen force that can take control of our minds and bodies.

If there are parasitic entities active and living on some energetic plane the surrounds us, you would expect to find many different evolved s pecies of them of varying uniqueness and intelligence, all in constant search for the richest sources of energy that they could feed off of.

If these are in fact spiritual entities, than what would be the richest source of energy on the planet that they would hunger for?

The only possible answer to that is as disturbing as it is logical: their *food* would have to be the energy or emotions produced by the human psyche; and to a lesser extent, the energy expended from sufferings of other forms of life on this planet.

Native American doctors and healers have dealt with these kinds of parasitic entities in their own traditions.

In a book called ‘Native Healing’ (Medicine Grizzlybear Lake, 1991), the author attributes this kind of psychic vampirism to something he calls the “shadow syndrome”. The natural world is believed to be full of all kinds of spirits, both good and bad, he states.

One class of a “bad” spirit is described as a shadowy presence or force. It is most often glimpsed in a person’s peripheral vision, and seen as a fleeting shadow figure.

Sometimes these shadows follow people home from places they’ve visited, and torment them by causing poltergeist activity and other haunting related disturbances.

In the book he describes these shadow beings as a ‘dark force’ in nature whose sole existence is bent on tormenting and harassing humans.

They prey on people who “have a weak aura”, or are “emotionally or mentally weak and under some kind of stress”. It is emphasized that these entities are very territorial and will often attack and attach themselves to people who intrude upon their environment.

Carlos Castaneda talks about strange entities he calls “the flyers,” shadowy worm-like creatures that feed off of human energy and have the ability to insert their mind into the minds of average, susceptible people. The physical description of these flyers sounds suspiciously like “rods,” the strange, insect-like flying organisms that have been video taped and documented by Jose Escamilla.

The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson

Wilson has blended H.P. Lovecraft’s dark vision with his own revolutionary philosophy and unique narrative powers to produce a stunning, high-tension story of vaulting imagination. A professor makes a horrifying discovery while excavating a sinister archeological site. For over 200 years, mind parasites have been lurking in the deepest layers of human consciousness, feeding on human life force and steadily gaining a foothold on the planet. Now they threaten humanity’s extinction. They can be fought with one weapon only: the mind, pushed to—and beyond—its limits. Pushed so far that humans can read each other’s thoughts, that the moon can be shifted from its orbit by thought alone. Pushed so that man can at last join battle with the loathsome parasites on equal terms.

Paranormal author and researcher Colin Wilson wrote an eerily Lovecraftian science fiction story called ‘The Mind Parasites’ about these kinds of entities, suggesting that people could become possessed by them, and manipulated like puppets or zombies to breed even more suffering and horror upon the planet through wars and conflict and senseless chaos, creating a feast of energy for these organisms and their spawns to feed on.

Colin’s novel suggests tyrants like Hitler and Stalin may be nothing more than the hollowed out, empty shells of human beings who have been completely taken over by a parasitic invasion of 'mind parasites', placing their fellow humans in bondage and keeping them in a weakened and vulnerable state, prolonging human suffering and misery.

He suggests that these parasitic entities may be especially attracted to a species that are on the brink of some evolutionary leap—theoretically, this is when the psychic energies of the species would be at their strongest, most vital, and most potently charged—and, much like the Sacculina carcini, the parasites invade and feed upon the species energetically for as long as they can, using them and discarding them as necessary to feed themselves, until the host is depleted and of no further use.

It is not the intention of the parasite to devour its host all at once—because once it has done this, it is forced to seek another source of food. The energetic siphoning of the life-force of a species is a process which could take many centuries and millenia, the feeding off of the collective pain and misery of the human race.

Returning to Alex Grey’s paintings, some people have described his surreal style of visionary art as a kind of “forbidden seeing”—meaning the art contains revelations of truths that are normally hidden, but which we desperately need to see and understand. We tend to see ourselves as the masters of this world and the universe at the very top of the food chain...that is what we're taught--but are we really?

Or is this just a reassuring delusion convenient to those who harvest our energy?
