I Might Be Living Proof That We Are Not Alone in the Universe
According to Brad Steiger, a well-known American researcher of paranormal phenomena, I might be a visitor to this planet. Not only me, but also others with an Rh-negative blood factor might possess alien DNA. Steiger says that it is a mystery to scientists and researchers why some human beings have negative blood factors.
Steiger writes, “Scientists have stated that they believe that the very first humans to have the negative Rh factor were born more than 35,000 years ago. What they don’t know is how or why they were born with it. The theory that has been the most popular is this – “those with this type of blood are of extraterrestrial origin; or, more precisely, have the DNA in their blood.”
Wait! Before you call the guys with the jackets with extra long sleeves, there is more to the story that validates Steiger’s theory. People who are Rh-Negative have the following similar characteristics: they usually have a higher IQ than those with Rh-Positive blood, are more mentally and emotionally stable, have a lower body temperature than others, have green, blue or light brown eyes, and are sensitive to both heat and cold. Hello! That’s me right down to the eye color and 97°F body temp. The temperate climate of the Monterey Peninsula is one of the things that brought me here. The weather is perfect for us extraterrestrials who are sensitive to extremes in temperature. Something tells me that my home planet has a climate similar to the Peninsula.
I didn’t know about my Rh-negative blood until I was in college. My roommate discovered that a hospital in Detroit paid $25.00 for a pint of blood. When I was typed they told me I had A-negative blood, relatively rare, and it was worth $35.00 a pint. That would be $312.00 in 2018 dollars. I made a trip to Transylvania General every six to seven weeks.
The origin of the Rh-negative factor is a mystery. Steiger says that the Spanish Basques have the highest percentage of carriers of Rh-Negative blood, coming in at around 30 percent. Also among those in the 30 percent range are Samaritans, Israeli Jews of Eastern origin and Ethiopian black Jews. This is more corroboration since the Ancestry.com analysis of my DNA indicates that nine percent of my heritage is Middle Eastern extending to Djibouti which borders Ethiopia. Among other inhabitants of the nations of the world, the number of Rh-Negative people reaches barely 1 percent. Specific people, such as healers, mediums, and those with unusual mental abilities, also have Rh-Negative blood. Although I cannot claim explicit powers of divination I have had a lot of success with Magic 8-Ball.
The possibility of being an extraterrestrial may be the reason I’ve always been interested in time travel as a theme for movies and literature. Jack Finney’s wonderful 1970 novel “Time and Again” launched me into time travel. Then the movie “Somewhere in Time” really hooked me, not only for the story line, but that it was filmed on Mackinac Island, Michigan where I spent my honeymoon. Plus it was the basis for my secret love affair with Jane Seymour, secret, because Jane never knew about it. Finally, “The Time Traveler’s Wife” is one of my favorite books and I’ve seen the movie time and again.
Those three books and movies are partly responsible for some challenging hypotheses among devotees of time travel, suppositions such as: if time travel were possible, what one event would you like to go back and change or witness? Or, if you could go back in time, when and where would you go? It’s the ultimate “What if,” or “Do over” game. My favorite: if time travel was possible and you could go back and leave a message for yourself, what would it be? And at what time in your life would that be?
Such a question usually reminds me of some of the best song lyrics ever written about that subject, Bob Seger’s: And I remember what she said to me/how she swore it never would end/ I remember how she held me oh-so-tight/ Wish I didn’t know now, what I didn’t know then.
At fourteen I would have told me to put down that baseball bat and pick up a pen. You’re never going to play major league baseball but you might write things others will want to read. I used to think that at twenty-one I would want to hear what Polonius said to Laertes, “This above all, to thine own self be true.” Is that really good advice? Hitler, Stalin, and Mao were true to themselves. Perhaps there is no absolute self to be virtuously true to. Shaw’s advice is more realistic: “Life isn’t about finding yourself; life is about creating yourself.”
I remembered the lyrics to another favorite song: But Oz never gave nothing to the Tin Man that he didn’t already have. So maybe I would tell myself: “Whatever you need is already in you. Develop it, create yourself.”
Alas, there is no time travel. I remain a stranger in a strange land like ET, yearning to go home. I just don’t know where home is.
PS – If you could go back and leave a message for yourself, what would it be? Let me know. If I get enough answers I’ll put them in a future column.
