In the modern vernacular the use of the term ‘Illuminati tropes’ encompasses the entire spectrum of esoteric and occult ideals which are displayed as a commonly recurring device (hidden narrative), or motif. Symbolism of the esoteric variety is commonly placed in contemporary works of popular culture, most notably films/programs with the highest amount of visibility, and intended to be understood by a small group of individuals who are capable of interpreting the hidden narrative.

Dreamscape – The Prophet travels to the realm of dreams to seek the symbolism of the ‘child’

In the films opening sequence an enigmatic, alien landscape is shown with the wandering Prophet, Jerzy Colsowicz (played by John Huston) experiencing the Dreamscape vision of a powerful and destructive storm brought about by an 8 year old girl. The symbolism of the world seen by the Prophet is indicative that the spirit of the Anti-Christ is alive in the bloodline of the child. The occult concept of Dreamscape, or a period of rest in which lucid visions or apparitions are produced in a subject, and esoteric themes thus materialize was explored in the film Dreamscape, and in the esoteric Disney series Gravity Falls.

Nicholas E. Heyneman, a former professor of psychology at Idaho State University, is the author of DreamScape – a book for dream analysis.
The work draws on sources from ancient Greece and the era of dream temples to the methods of modern psychology to find connections between dream symbolism and real-life events; past, present, and future. Using the numerical hex-craft pattern of six, Heyneman explores the world of magic and clairvoyance in his sixth chapter “The Three Symbols Of Prophecy”, aptly found on page 166.

“Dreams sense our future and our place in the universe” – Nicholas E. Heyneman author of DreamScape: The Personal Interactive Dream Analysis System

This concept is also visited in the 1984 sci-fi film ‘Dreamscape’, which was developed from an outline based on the novel ‘The Dream Master’, by author Roger Zelazny. Canadian Author Astra Crompton developed a 12 part short story series based on her own real dreaming experiences titled ‘Dreamscapes’, which sometimes feature post-apocalyptic visions of her hometown – such as in her short story ‘The Swan’.

During the rise of Gnosticism the term Archons was used to refer to the malevolent spiritual servants of Iurbo Baoth, whom it was thought could reach mankind through the use of lucid dreaming.
Ideally dream gnosis was a form of revelation which came from vivid dreaming and was believed to be direct guidance from the Archons – or spirits of the air.

“With the arising of the Archons, another Dreaming comes into play outside our threefold world order. I propose to call this the Alien Dreaming.” –

The spiritual king and lord over the Archons was thought to reside in an ethereal dimension between the waking mind and the spiritual body of those asleep.  Archons could be summoned upon to enter into the dream space of an individual and provide hidden gnosis from the past or future. These entities were called demonic entities by certain sects and were also labeled ‘the principalities and powers of the air’ by early Christians. Today modern Gnostics and various occultist refer to these spiritual beings as Aliens.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” – Ephesians 6:12

Visitor storm 2

The storm seen via the Prophet foreshadows a coming nuclear winter brought about via the seed of Satan – the girl. The Prophet returns to a heavenly abode led by his colleague, Jesus Christ (played by Franco Nero). Christ tells his bald pupils about the centuries-long cosmic conflict between Satan (Zatteen), an evil Alien with mutant abilities, such as powerful psychic powers, and his benevolent arch-rival God, known as Yahwih.

Christ In The Film The Visitor – Played By Franco Nero

Christ informs his followers that Satan was imprisoned, later escaping in a star ship to the Earth centuries ago, though he was eventually tracked down and killed by Yahwih, his evil spirit lives on in the genetic seed of his children – the Illuminati Bloodlines (Draco Seed). The spirit of Satan is awaiting an opportunity to reemerge and wreck havoc on God and his pupils on Earth. Before being killed by Yahwih, Satan (Zatteen) produced dozens of children with human women, and these descendants continue to populate the Earth and obey his evil desire to create a New World Order.

“Zatten (Satan) was a mutant, his genes transformed, a mutant with a primal wish to kill, but evolved to new psychic and occult powers. He used these powers to spread destruction.” – Christ in The Visitor

Modern Gnostics and various New Age occultist state that the Archons of the ancient world were Alien beings who bred with human women, creating a seed of Iurbo Baoth (the archetype of Satan).

“Most theories of the ET breeding program assume that whatever the aliens (usually, the embryonic Grey types are suspect) might choose to do, they can do. But Gnostic seers who applied non-ordinary reasoning to their observations of the Archons reached a different conclusion. In the Gnostic view, it would be a huge error to assume the Archons are doing things they cannot do, for that would give them power over us.” –

The Omni In Atlanta Georgia – Home To Future Fake News Source CNN

During a professional basketball game at The Omni in Atlanta, home team new owner Raymond Armstead (played by Lance Henriksen), sits courtside in his powerful red collared shirt, promising an interviewer that the team will win at all costs. Since Raymond is a new owner and the source of his wealth is unknown, the interviewer presses him on the source of his wealth. He eventually answers that the money comes “from God“. Raymond is alluding to the ‘God of this world, Satan, whom through the Illuminati have endowed him with a large amount of wealth to bring about the New World Order.

8-year old daughter Katy has already developed her psychokinetic abilities, while in the Omni, she causes the basketball of Abdul to explode at the rim. The Omni is sided with 8 sides in the symbol of the building and even on the scoreboard is the number 88 found. Here an occult reference to the power of the numbers 8, and 88 for occult purpose are on display. In numerous news headlines the number 88 is always mentioned along with the identification of President Trump.

The Visitor The Peacock
The Colorful Peacock – Melek Taus The Demiurge

In the film the presence of birds is indicative of the spiritual world, where the large hawk that follows Katy is the embodiment of spiritual Satan, the smaller birds are indicative of Angels and the powers of Heaven. On a trip with her friend, Barbara discovers a trinket colorful peacock, the small idol is symbolic of the Melek Taus, demiurge/Satan to critics of the Yazidi religion. The peacock is going to be gifted to Katy at a party. In Yazidi religion Melek Taus is known as the Peacock Angel, a being that Christians, some Gnostics, and Muslims view as the spiritual archetype of Satan.

The Yazidi consider Melek a fallen angel that was redeemed of his sins and became the figure known as the Demiurge, creator of the cosmos from a great Cosmic egg. After the angel repented, he began to weep for 7,000 years, his tears filled seven jars that then quenched the fires of hell. Melek is the leader of archangels and an emanation of God. Melek is also the embodiment of the concept of Free Will, as Melek can choose to do right or wrong, as good and evil both exist in the mind and spirit of human beings. It depends on the humans, themselves, as to which they choose – Free Will.

Raymond enters the threshold of the Illuminati mansion which of course requires stepping on the occult checkered floor. Unknown to Barbara, Raymond is secretly in league with a cabal of rich Satanists who are plotting to bring about the resurgence of Zatteen (Satan). Raymond’s associate Dr. Walker (played by Mel Ferrer) reminds him that his girlfriend Barbara Collins can be used as a conduit to unleash Satan into a corporeal, human form. Collins 8-year old daughter Katy has already displayed her powers at the NBA game, it is the Illuminati goal to now have Raymond father a male child with Barbara, who in turn will mate with his half-sister and produce the physical embodiment of Satan in the future. In this way the Illuminati can control the bloodline of their selected elite.The Visitor KatyKaty opens the gift box of the Peacock and discovers a gun, which she inadvertently discharges shooting her mother in the back. When Katy begins using her powers to facilitate the Satanists goals, it causes a series of fatal accidents to happen to their enemies. Barbara is inadvertently paralyzed by the gunshot wound to her back, and becomes relegated to a wheelchair. A police detective, Jake Durham (played by Glenn Ford) investigating the mysterious deaths is killed in a car accident facilitated by the Illuminati.

Katy Battles It Out Under The 7-UP Sign


Barbara’s new maid, Jane Phillips (played by Shelley Winters), instantly sees the potential evil inherent in Katy, as she had once had a child with the same abilities. The pair have it out under the 7-up sign, an obscure occult reference to the 7 Sages of Mesopotamia and the number 7 Melek Taus ‘Angel Peacock’.

When Raymond fails to seduce Barbara, the Illuminati go about harming others in violent ways. Barbara eventually gets pregnant, but is still afraid of having another child and has her ex, Katy’s biological father, Dr. Sam Collins (played by Sam Peckinpah) abort the baby. When she returns home, she is attacked for her actions by Raymond and Katy, who attempt to execute her by tying a wire around her neck and sending her down the stairs in her chair lift. Before they can succeed, The Prophet Colsowicz intervenes and summons an army of birds, spiritual Angels, that thwart Katy. The large statue bird in the hallway comes alive and kills Raymond. The next day a Black butler for the Illuminati mansion discovers all the other Satanists dead at their round table, presumably by Gods intervention.

The Prophet returns to Jesus and his apostles. He reveals that he has brought Katy with him. She is now bald and cleansed of her malice, the film ends with her smiling and embracing Colsowicz who insists that children are not to be harmed.

The Visitor film is an esoteric genre piece from start to finish, thus any reviewer of the movie is going to be confused, baffled, and even dismayed if they are of total unfamiliarity with the occult. The poster displays a large all seeing eye, which is symbolic of the watcher ‘aliens’ known as Igigi from the tales of ancient Mesopotamia. While the film delves into the subject matter of Satanism and the powers of the air, these physical forms are always shown in the guise of birds. The smaller birds are the spiritual Angels, while the larger birds are the spiritual demonic entities, ultimately Aliens. The cabal of wealthy elite are the modern Illuminati and their bloodlines descend from the seed Satan. These evil doers have been put in places of wealth and power through the ‘god of this world’, known as Satan, in the film pronounced as Zatteen. The figure of Katy, who turned the esoteric age of 8, meaning that her time is near, is now on the verge of the Awakening within herself.  Her bloodline is the blood of Kings, just as in the title song of the Highlander series. Through her bloodline it is possible to reawaken the Satanic DNA buried inside her. In ancient Mesopotamia human knowledge was awakened via the 7 sages. This is also why the 7th Star Wars film is titled Star Wars The Force Awakens. The awakening within these bloodline members allows for new powers and occult capabilities to materialize in the film, this theme is repeated in numerous other films and series.

Symbolism of the esoteric variety, is willfully placed in high budget works of entertainment and intended to be understood by a small group of individuals capable of recognizing and interpreting the hidden meaning or occult symbolism depicted. Various films, television programs, and even science fiction films (such as Arrival & Signs) will feature interior or hidden elements including: Numerology, Metaphors & Allegories, and Illuminati or Esoteric Symbolism.

The following Gematria study will attempt to deconstruct the films Arrival and Signs and offer a detailed analysis of the alien invasion trope, and hidden allegory utilized in both films. The following study will feature numerous spoilers for those individuals who have yet to see either film.

Arrival 2016 Gematria Study

Arrival is a 2016 American science fiction film directed by Denis Villeneuve and written by Eric Heisserer, based on the 1998 short story “Story of Your Life” by Ted Chiang. Chiang is a Chinese American science fiction author whose previous works included the short novel “Tower Of Babylon”, a piece which revisits the ancient period of King Nimrod (Gilgamesh), and the first world government (‘Old World Order’) and the attempt to create an enormous brick tower which will reach the heavens and rival the kingdom of God. In the biblical narrative the Elohim and God separate mankind from the center of Babel after providing the builders with unfamiliar languages, thus confusion ensues and the tower is left incomplete. Language and the concept of dispersion based on the inability to communicate is one of many themes in the film Arrival. Arrival is also a film crafted almost entirely on the disciplines of Gematria and numerical connections.

The Alien Language Logograms


Arrival 2016 Plot

The film is built upon the principles of time and numerical synchronicity. According to screen writer Eric Heisserer time is represented in the film as the logogram of the Alien species. The logograms are represented on screen via a circular language, which in reality is based partly on the occult, or the alchemical symbol of the Ouroboros. The symbol known as the Ouroboros, features a dragon eating his own tail, returning unto himself in the endless loop designed to reflect the concept known as ‘Eternal Return’, or everlasting infinity. A similar numerical designation found in the number 8, for its endless looping pattern, is oft utilized to showcase both connection and infinity. For the creation of the language used in the film, screen writer Eric Heisserer drew a series of circular patterns for the screenplay, while the duty of crafting those circles into the legitimate language went to production designer Patrice Vermette. According to Heisserer, the alien language evolved into 100 legitimate words, many appearing in the film as the inkblot styled logograms.

“I was asked to look at what’s been made, what’s been done and also needed to look at what languages exist on earth or what existed, like hieroglyphs, dead languages from the middle east or Africa, symbols from Native American culture and South America,” – Patrice Vermette, Arrival Production Designer


“We are so bound by time…by its order” – Louise Banks

The film opens with linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) caring for her infant daughter Hannah, who is wrapped in the colors of both red and blue (much like the colors donned by Superman), this is likely done for the classic occult trope of showcasing both the balance of power and the everlasting nature of truth, justice, and for the purpose of this film, ‘fate’. During what appears to be a flashback, Louise and her daughter Hannah, are always depicted with this familiar trope, however, Hannah eventually contracts an incurable form of cancer in adolescence and dies. Upon the death of Hannah, Louise beckons her daughter to “return to her.”

Hannah And Louise Are Displayed In The Famous Color Trope Of Red Vs. Blue. In Esoteric Terms Louise Is The ‘BLUE’ Mother Of Grace, An Archetype Virgin Mary  

“But now I’m not so sure I believe in beginnings and endings.” – Louise Banks

Upon the death of Hannah, Louise walks the hospital corridor which features 3 pairs of 2 doors, or the familiar pattern of 3×2 = 6. The numerical pattern of 6 reappears in this film when depicting death or destruction. The total numbers of letters in the name Hannah is also six. The total of papers appearing on the doors number 12, a number which is also prominently on display later in the film.



“I’m learning that more objects like this have landed in as many as 8 locations around the world” – News Broadcaster, Arrival (2016)

In the present, while Louise Banks is lecturing to 8 students at a university, 8 extraterrestrial spacecraft are announced via the mainstream news as appearing across the planet. Here the film makers have provided a numerical clue to the true persona of the alien invaders. For the general public the numerical designation of 8 students and 8 aliens may go unnoticed, however, for esoteric purposes the number 8 shown in this manner alludes to the power of duality and infinity. For the purpose of Gematria study, hostile aliens which appear in television and film elsewhere are almost always shown surrounded by the number 11. This trope holds true for the series ‘Stranger Things’, directed by the Duffer Brothers. In that Netflix series, a character introduced as 011 (El / Eleven), is fighting against a hostile alien entity called the Demogorgon. In order to continue this trope, the science fiction film Arrival was released in the United States on 11/11/16. In this manner the alien invaders are typically assigned the position of hostiles, however, given the designation of the number 8 upon their arrival indicates these aliens are both a friendly presence as well as connected to an aspect of time – the number 88.


The Number 8 In Arrival

The film Arrival is based on a short story by a Chinese American author, Ted Chiang. According to Chinese numerology, 88 symbolizes fortune and good luck, since the word 8 sounds similar to the word ‘fa’, or wealth. Chinese numerologist believe the number 8 expresses the totality of the universe, or the divine concept of infinity. The number 8 is considered to be the luckiest number in Chinese culture, where prices of goods often contain many 8s. In Japanese culture, the number 88 is often used to mean “a great many” or “countless” or infinite numbers.


The number 42, often shown as 4×2 = 8, is mentioned 8 times in the Holy Bible. In the film series ‘Back To The Future’, the protagonist vehicle must reach 88 miles per hour before it can transport through time. The eighth letter of the alphabet is H. The name Hannah is an intentional palindrome, or word, phrase, number, or other sequence of characters which reads the same backward or forward. Within the film the name Hannah is of particular importance as her character is representative of eternity, or the concept of ‘Eternal Return’. HH or 88 is thus symbolized in the palindrome of Hannah, a beginning and an end which are alluded to both in the films beginning and ending. The name Hannah is 6 letters long, which also alludes to the death of said character. The Hannah figure is thus an aspect of the sideways 8, a looping symbol representing infinity, and existing in what screen writer Heisserer describes as the ‘fourth dimension’.

Alternative History

Alternative History, which also includes ancient alien theory or ‘paleo-contact’, is a hypothetical study of the past which concludes that human beings made contact with advanced extraterrestrial beings or ancient astronauts some thousands of years ago.
Alternative history or AH as a chronology of history differs from the subgenre of speculative fiction known as alternate history which offers speculative “what if” counter-facts to accepted history. The proponents of AH propose that the accepted interpretation of history is neither infallible nor conclusive.

As with any version/interpretation of historical account, alternative theorists debate the various concepts and ideas which comprise the foundation of this discipline, elements of which are sometimes known by the names “Forbidden History”, and “Secret History”. The various aspects of the AH culture are broadcast through internet forums and published works, subjects of which may include speculative accounts regarding objects and events or may include so-called pseudo science. While fringe concepts such as conspiracy theories and fringe sciences are oft explored, the major tenant of this subject remains the proposition that human beings contacted advanced extraterrestrial beings or ancient astronauts some thousands of years ago.

 Alternative history includes theoretical, speculative, and often fanciful takes on events said to have occurred prior to the written record or prehistory.
Authors and historians of this study often apply interpretative modernistic literalism, or IML, to religious text and archaeological artifacts in order to fill various gaps in the ‘accepted’ historical record.

As a discipline, alternative history is a collective hypothesis which grew to prominence in the latter half of the 20th century. Its proposals often bear similarities to plots found in the genre of science fiction. Works by authors such as H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, and H.P. Lovecraft have all been cited as early examples of influence on figures close to the ‘paleo-contact’ debate.

In addition to the theories of ancient alien contact, alternative studies have their basis in the exploration of theoretical lost continents, among these Atlantis and Mu.
French author and Mesoamerican historian Chalres Brasseur de Bourbourg (1814-1874) expressed parallels between Maya and Egyptian cosmologies, implying a shared common source with the fabled Atlantis in his book Quatre lettres sur le Mexique, published in 1868. In 1882, inspired by the works of de Bourbour, American author Ignatius Loyola Donnelly published Atlantis: The Antediluvian World, establishing the connection that the mythical homeland of the Aztecs, Aztlan, is the legendary lost continent of Atlantis. Donnelly’s work would later contribute to the emergence of Mayanism, a blend of New Age beliefs, which places emphasis on the possibility of contact between the Aztecs and ancient astronauts.
Advocates such as Italian writer Peter Kolosimo and Swiss author Erich von Daniken are regarded as the modern fathers of ‘paleo-contact’, or ancient alien theory, a topic which was central in von Daniken’s book Chariots of the Gods?, published in 1968.
Notions popularized by authors such as von Daninken spawned a slew of theories as well as sub theories – or subsets – which as a whole became the study known today as Alternative History AH.

“The so-called ancient astronaut thesis and alternative study of history that is counter to mainstream thinking has become an exciting field. As we learn more about the advanced civilizations that existed before the “official history” taught in our schools, we are also broadening our horizons and learning about a larger universe that we all belong to as galactic citizens.” – Bill Stanley, author and Alternative History proponent.

While several hypotheses comprise alternative history, the basic tenets of this discipline consist of four alternative history interpretations or AHI, known here as the four concepts.



1.) Ancient Astronaut Theory

Ancient Astronaut Theory – Paleo Contact (Includes Subsets Limited Contact & Mother Culture)

2.) IML – Interpretative Modernistic Literalism

(Includes Subsets Out Of Place Artifacts & Pseudo Archeology, Also Fringe Theory)

3.) Panspermia

Panspermia – Exogenesis (Includes Subsets Directed Genesis & Accidental Panspermia – Also Known As “Garbage Theory”)

4.) The UFO Meme

The UFO Meme – Mental Link (Includes Subsets UFO Religion, New Age Cult, & Mental Link, Also Known As “Teachings Of The Ascended Masters”

Ancient Astronaut Theory

Ancient Astronaut Theory, or “Paleo-Contact”, also includes the subset or sub theories of “Mother Culture”, and “Limited Contact”. Chief among the four concepts, ancient astronaut theory provides the notion that extraterrestrials visited the earth long ago and had an impact on mankind.
In 1959, prior to the popularization of the paleo-contact hypothesis presented by von Daniken and his emulators, a Russian mathematician and ethnologist, Dr. M Matest Agrest, proposed that past cultures were greatly influenced by contact with extraterrestrials. At the time proponents of this theory, including French archaeologist Henri Lhote, shocked the accepted establishment with their controversial hypothesis. Dr. Agrest made a number of startling claims including such as that the destruction of Biblical Sodom and Gomorrah, or S’dom and Gemora, were carried out by extraterrestrials armed with nuclear weapons and that the megalithic terrace of Baalbek in Lebanon was utilized as a Launchpad for ancient spacecraft.

In English Gematria “Evil Xemu” = 666

Notable authors such as astrophysicist Carl Sagan and Church of Scientology founder L.Ron Hubard viewed the topic of Paleo-Contact as a subject worthy of serious debate and study, while Sagan is regarded to have viewed the idea with cautious skepticism, Hubard expanded on the ideas of alien contact in his fanciful take on prehistory (Scientology) stating that 75 million years ago a galactic dictator, “Evil Xemu”, massacred over 1 billion individuals through thermonuclear weaponry – thus creating “thetans”, or tormented spirit/souls that today surround humans on Earth.

“We must contemplate our origins. Even if they are not of this Earth.” – Carl Sagan

Other notables including astrophysicist, mathematicians, and scientist have considered the possibilities of ancient extraterrestrial contact. Among these include Russian astronomer Iosif Shklovsky co-author of Intelligent Life in the Universe and German physicist Herman Oberth, one of the fathers of modern rocketry.

“We cannot take credit for our record advancement in certain scientific fields alone. We have been helped…(by) the peoples of other worlds.” – Herman Oberith

Mother Culture

From the hypothesis of “Paleo-Contact”, two distinct sub theories have emerged, the first subset is known as “mother culture”. Mother culture is a term used to describe any early culture which influence carries over to later civilizations far beyond the life span of the previous culture. Adherents of this AHI believe that the rapid progress of early human civilization can be attributed to an ancient extraterrestrial source acting as a mother culture. According to this concept much of human religion, culture, and knowledge developed as a result of alien guidance. Elements of this idea have been widely popularized by authors such as Sasha Lessin, Erich von Daniken, and Zecharia Sitchin.
In this scenario aliens willfully directed human beings to achieve accomplishments such as early advances in the realm of medicine and astronomy, eventually aiding man in the building of ancient structures such as the pyramids of Egypt and the Ziggurat of Mesopotamia.

Charles Hoy Fort – One of many “fathers” of Alternative History, and the Ancient Alien Theory

Under this concept the rise and development of agriculture, for example, is often attributed directly to alien guidance. Author Charles Hoy Fort (1867-1923) was an early advocate of the mother culture concept. Charles Fort was a contemporary of professor L.F. Soddy, an Oxford scholar and Nobel Laureate whose life work included the search for apparent gaps in accepted historical record or prehistory. While Professor Soddy believed historical gaps were the result of a missing civilization, such as Atlantis or Lemuria, Fort speculated that an extraterrestrial mother culture was to blame. Charles Fort theorized that ancient astronauts of various races visited the Earth periodically for thousands of years, some out of curiosity, others out of necessity, such as the need for a mining colony or an interstellar matchmaking service. Charles Fort explored these and other rather revolutionary concepts in his book “The Book of the Damned”, published in 1919. Charles Forts work served as the foundation for many modern subset theories to develop such as aspects of the UFO Meme, namely abductions and telepathy.

“I accept that, though we’re usually avoided, probably for moral reasons, sometimes this earth has been visited by explorers. I think that the notion that there have been extra-mundane visitors to China, within what we call the historic period, will be only ordinarily absurd, when we come to that datum.” – Charles Hoy Fort

By 1960 the esoteric work of writers Louis Pauwels and physicist Jacques Bergier, ‘Le Matin des Magiciens’, appeared in Paris France. By 1964 the book made its way to the US under the title ‘Morning of the Magicians‘. Pauwels and Bergier were greatly inspired by the works of Charles Fort, whom is subject of the entire first chapter. The book popularized the theory that the Nazca Lines of Peru may have been utilized as a landing strip for alien astronauts, a theory first proposed by American ufologist James W. Moseley in an 1955 issue of Fate magazine.

Limited Contact

Apart from the hypothesis of “Paleo-Contact”, the second distinct sub theory to emerge is known as “limited contact”, one of the least discussed theories amongst proponents of AHI. Limited contact is the idea that ancient alien visitors influence on man was as a result of unintentional or limited contact with early humans. The speculation being that ancient spacemen either wandered off course or were monitoring our planet when they or their spacecraft were inadvertently witnessed by ancient man.
American physicist and science fiction author Ron L. Forward also explored elements of this concept in his sci-fi novel Dragon’s Egg, published in 1980. Forwards work later became the inspiration for a Star Trek Voyager episode titled “Blink of an Eye”, in which the presence of a starship (Voyager) is observed by the primitive inhabitants of an alien world who assume that the orbiting vessel and its crew are godlike beings.
Similar ideas were also featured in the television series Star Trek : The Next Generation in an episode titled “Who Watchers the Watchers”, written by Richard Manning and Hans Beimler.
The idea that extraterrestrials visited our planet, but avoided contact with man, yet if any contact did occur it was done so inadvertently is a concept not widely solicited by alternative history voices. Author Charles Fort (1867-1923), however, believed in the hypothesis of limited contact as well as mother culture, speculating that both likely occurred over millennia. American author and researcher Charles Hoy Fort is widely considered the first ancient astronaut theorist. Charles Fort devoted over 30 years to meticulous research of scientific journals and papers he gleaned from the libraries of London and New York.
During this period Fort amassed a collective of over 60,000 notes which he kept to
evaluate anomalous phenomena, or the study of anomalies too bizarre to fit the rationality of accepted science. Forts work is regarded as the inspiration for authors H.P Lovecraft and Erich von Daniken. Fort became skeptical of the scientific community, believing many scholars had simply ignored or dismissed “anomalies”out of hand, often creating convoluted or fanciful reasoning to explain away (or sometimes outright ignore) bizarre events said to have been witnessed by a number of people.

IML – Interpretative Modernistic Literalism

Amongst proponents of AHI, the concepts addressed through Interpretative Modernistic Literalism allow for both exceptions, as well interpretations, of history or artifacts seen through the eyes of a modernistic approach. In this manner all works of art, history, and literature are reevaluated, seen as well as interpreted from a new contemporary stand point – thus conclusions (when allowed) are based upon the mindset (views and ‘opinions’) of the proponents so-called Alternative History Interpretation – AHI.

In English Gematria “Opinions” = 666
