Aliens may exist but contact would hurt humans: Hawking

LONDON (AFP) – Aliens may exist but mankind should avoid contact with them as the consequences could be devastating, British scientist Stephen Hawking warned Sunday.

"If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn't turn out well for the Native Americans," said the astrophysicist in a new television series, according to British media reports.

The programmes depict an imagined universe featuring alien life forms in huge spaceships on the hunt for resources after draining their own planet dry.

"Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach," warned Hawking.

The doomsday scenario is suggested in the series "Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking" on the Discovery Channel, which began airing in the United States on Sunday.

On the probability of alien life existing, he says: "To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens perfectly rational.

"The real challenge is to work out what aliens might actually be like."

Glowing squid-like creatures, herds of herbivores that can hang onto a cliff face and bright yellow predators that kill their prey with stinging tails are among the creatures that stalk the scientist's fantastical cosmos.

Mankind has already made a number of attempts to contact extraterrestrial civilisations.

In 2008, American space agency NASA beamed the Beatles song "Across the Universe" into deep space to send a message of peace to any alien that happens to be in the region of Polaris -- also known as the North Star -- in 2439.

But the history of humanity's efforts to contact aliens stretches back some years.

The US probes Pioneer 10 and 11 were launched in 1972 and 1973 bearing plaques of a naked man and woman and symbols seeking to convey the positions of the Earth and the Sun.

Voyager 1 and 2, launched in 1977, each carry a gold-plated copper phonogram disk with recordings of sounds and images on Earth.

We are born knowing all, because we are a part of that ALL. We need only reconnect our conscience (being) to the God Conscience(energy/Spirit/Light/Creator) within. We are the creators of our own world. Whatever is in our God conscience, we can bring into creation and vice versa, whatever we can bring into creation, comes from our God conscience. Surely as our conscious minds can imagine the existence of interplanetary aliens, we can be certain that that knowledge is already a part of our God Conscience. The Universal Consciousness, is where we draw all we know, even down to the littlest bits of stuff we know. Nothing is new under the SUN. "What is, always has been, and always will be..." To know the certainty of anything, we must look inner and balance it against the God conscience within.

We ourselves are aliens too. It's really not that much of a jump, realizing that other beings exist that don't look like us. I would personally be interested in information on how earth beings are collaborating with aliens from other planets to further subdue us. But right now, I won't waste any sleep over it. It takes a lifetime to evolve within self, especially with all the deliberate misinformation that's been put in our path to slow us down, so that we are not ready when it happens. You know, that something that we can all feel coming. That something that we of the Matrix are getting ready for. To me, this appears to be part of all that keeps us from growing stronger in the realization of our true selves and in developing the powers/energies/knowledge that we possess. Too much comtempating on aliens cripples our self-defense by keeping us off focus. We must learn how to use our God given gifts. We can only do that to our fullest, when we know the human-sciences necessary to activate them. Why spend/spin our minds obsessing on aliens? We could be diving into the greatest pool of God power within us, that is designed to protect and sustain us. The only measuring stick for comparison to our own inate/inbirth knowing is the only ALL-KNOWING Omni-Present Universal Energy. Before we became sparks of split-off halograms (flesh-beings) we flowed with the current of the ALL-Knowing universal source, nothing but energy. As beings we carry that same current within each of us. There is no power on earth greater than the ALL, which we have been given endless access to, we need only totally plug-inner. It's our space shield while we are on this earth space ship. We must get plugged in and stay plugged in, because then and only then will all the power of all alien beings become our power too... Let nothing separate you from the God Source...
Peace & Blessings,
One Love,
Ipriama
