‘Ata Alien’ Mystery Solved? Four New Genetic Mutations Found

The Independent via MSN  reports today that the Atacama body mystery featured in my Valentine’s Day poetry has been solved after research, and it has been proved human.

However, they report ‘The investigation also revealed four genetic mutations presumed to be involved with bone diseases, all of which were previously unknown to science.’

I don’t know that much about it, but could that leave the door open to it being a hybrid? Especially as I read in another article on MSN, about humans, that:

‘Humans are among the least genetically diverse species, mostly because we probably descended from a small group of early humans who lived in East Africa. Population geneticists describe genetic diversity with a measure called “effective population size.” Basically, effective population size is how many people you would need to reproduce the genetic diversity of our full population. For humans, this number is really low and hovers around 15,000 individuals. It is kind of crazy when you consider that actual population size is 7 billion. If compared to mice, some species of them have an effective population size of 733,000.’

So, putting the two articles together with a quick wrIus (writer-genius, wri-ius blending) connection it seems amazing that four new mutations were found in one ‘human’ if we are ‘among the least genetically diverse species.’

Talking of amazing I noticed a new wrIus blending in the fourth paragraph of the ‘Ata’ article: ‘has been the subject of intense speculation among online alien enthusiasts ever since it was revealed to the world.

‘alien enthusiasts’ just leapt out as the blended alienthusiasts!

Space Alien Documentaries

I’m continuing to keep up with space watching Quest at 9pm on a Saturday night. Now they’ve got repeats of NASA’s Unexplained Files on, which isn’t as up-to-date or sensational-as-in-amazing as the UFOs Lost Evidence that premiered last year. I’d now seen most of the cases on YouTube, although they provided more explanation, and sometimes seemed to provide adequate proof, such as space junk.

Highlights from a couple of episodes ago were:

1. three objects seeming to be leaving the Earth, flapping wings; the team reported that corroborated sightings outside their craft by two different teams of Russian cosmonauts in 1984, who were reported as saying they’d seen winged golden angels glowing outside their craft. It reminded me of the Watchers from the Noah movie; I watched it for the first time last Christmas; which are angelic beings in the first testament (but can also be traced to other Middle-East religions/myths, such as the Mesopotamian Apkallu, which had the same ‘handbag’ as Mayans across the Atlantic Ocean, as previously mentioned on my travel25years sister site):

The Creation depiction also had a lot of gYgPOP (greenYgreyPinkyOrangePurple) relevance:

Conducting further research this morning I found this Ancient Aliens documentary series clip, and thought the ‘angels’ depiction was reminiscent of yellow Ys, as in greenYgrey!:

2. ‘noise/music’ heard for nearly an hour on the ‘dark side of the moon’, where/when communication with Earth is lost, by an American Apollo mission. I wondered if Pink Floyd knew before writing Dark Side of the Moon?

The last episode’s highlight was ‘alien life’ bugs brought back from the moon by Apollo 12. The programme’s balanced investigation considered NASA’s explanation that it was contaminated before leaving or after returning to the Earth’s ocean.

I also recently caught up on the Conspiracy Theory programme Area 51 investigation from 2009-2012 on TruTV. You may find it online, but I don’t know about the legality. Corroborating the ‘Ata’ is human findings, it found that the weird sightings in the south-west of the USA were human military and space aircraft or holograms (explanation for Phoenix, Arizona massive craft also featured in my Valentine poem).

I am still open-minded and agnostic about it all, thinking there must be life out there, but not knowing what it is exactly. I had my ant theory about humanity on Earth a long time ago, and concerning space, I think we could be like fish in the ocean to us, seeing other creatures entering our part of the water: a newish little rock pool in a vast expanse of ancient existence.

There’s a lot of people who know a lot more about it than me, including anybody with Discovery Channel and who’s watched all the Ancient Aliens documentaries!

My XaW Files book is a parody comedy, and has nothing much to contribute on the alien space issue, although there is a mysteries theme throughout, mostly focusing on me the writer’s mental process. I became interested in the subject again more from watching new evidence on Quest last year.

Moon Documentary Facts and Images

Do We Really Need the Moon? might seem like a silly question for a werewolf, but not so much for humans. The traditional werewolf and a wolf did feature in a documentary presented by Maggie Aderin-Pocock, along with lots of magnificent moon facts and greenygrey images. It’s available on the BBC iplayer (just in the U.K. I think) until Tuesday, and may be elsewhere on the internet?

Moon Documentary Facts and Images

Hi, it’s Stephen Werewolfing, satirical science correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by legendary astrophysicist Stephen Hawking. I was limited to ten greenygrey images and moon facts in my assignment, but could have got much more, as the moon documentary was that interesting and greenygrey. The first three greenygrey images were within the first 42 seconds.

I think ten greenygrey images is too much to load onto you in one go, so here’s the first five, with another five in the second instalment of this howlingly Hawkingish high-five x2:

Moon Facts and Images

1. The moon is 14,000 miles away from earth. We only see one side of the moon because it takes exactly as long to rotate once on its axis as it does to circle the Earth. The Dark Side of the Moon made famous by Pink Floyd has more craters, meaning it has stopped a lot of asteroids hitting Earth, helping to preserve life on the planet.

2. The moon was created after an impact between another planet and a planet that is now our planet Earth. The debris dislodged in the collision coalesced into a ball. The moon was initially much closer to Earth, and must have looked like a gigantic orange disc in the sky from our planet.

3. Moon tides might have started life on Earth. Darwin thought life started in warm little ponds, and many scientists now think he was right. In a simple chemistry experiment in the documentary they replicated tidal power, sunshine and a process of mixing and drying to create Ribonucleic acid (RNA), one of the main building blocks of life.

4. While there is no evidence that the full moon has any direct effect on animals or humans, it is brighter than the moon at other times, so nocturnal animals can be more active when there’s a full moon. It can also provide a time cue, and coral mainly spawns on or around the full moon.

5. By sending laser light photons to the moon, and measuring those returning, they can tell how far the moon is travelling away from the Earth now. They have found a clear pattern showing the moon still travelling away from Earth at 3.78 centimetres a year, about the same speed as finger nails grow.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the first trip to the moon, and are looking forward to the second…

Werewolf of Ozzers Prog Rock Literary Nonsense

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Here’s the last episode of the Kerang-Kerrang time-travel tale that has been keeping you on the edge of your seats all week. This episode focuses on Prog Rock, from the cool Pink Floyd to the a little over the top for my liking Yes and ELP.

We hope you liked this tale within a tale, and will continue travelling with us for the rest of the journey, which only has about fifty chapters to go now.

Chapter 93.  Prog Rock Helps Travellers to a Good Spirit Sleep

I heard a voice announce there would be another Crazy Train in an hour. Although I was ready to leave Kerang-Kerrang I didn’t really fancy that, so I asked the others if they had any ideas about how to move on with our minds intact.

Cathy Gets into the Spirit of it

Cathy said she thought she could feel the Wemba-Wemba spirit in the area, and if she could get a deeper contact she might be able to find a dream path.

I thought for a minute or three,
awaiting a perfect eddy,
to make me look brainy.
I was still paddling the surf,
with the sea much to rough,
when Cathy said Prog Rock was enough.
I’d heard before it is the ultimate unwind,
so I left the stormy waters of my mind behind,
and agreed with Cathy on what to find.

Pink Floyd too Exciting for a Good Sleep

So off we rambled to find Prog Rock. It turned out to be easier than I thought, as a pig was flying above. A long Wall extended from Prog Rock to the Dark Side of the Moon, and herds of Animals seemed to be using it as a bridge between the two.

I suggested continuing to the ELPYesendless Lea suburb; because from what I knew, it was constructed for comfort and rolled on forever. It sounded perfect for inducing a good sleep.

Sound Spirit Sleep

So, under an ELP Black Moon on Love Beach we took our places In the Hot Seat. And Yes, Close to the Edge, holding hands in Union, we swept into slept until we could Fly From Here. It was like no other flight I’d experienced.
