Use over time for: anthropomorphism
Anthropomorphism, or personification, is attribution of human form or other characteristics to anything other than a human being. Examples include depicting deities with human form, creating fictional non-human animal characters with human physical traits, and ascribing human emotions or motives to forces of nature, such as hurricanes or earthquakes.
Anthropomorphism has ancient roots as a literary device in storytelling, and also in art. Most cultures have traditional fables with anthropomorphised animals, who can stand or talk as if human, as characters.
The word anthropomorphism was first used in the mid-1700s. The word derives from the Greek ἄνθρωπος (ánthrōpos), “human”, and μορφή (morphē), “shape” or “form”.

Do we actually have the brains to conceptualize a life form that is truly alien in its nature, so alien that it fits no earthly mold? Or is it really true: As above, So Below? That mother earth is a fairly good microcosmic representation of the universe and her life forms in general? Might the “aliens” everybody talks about be appearing to us in anthropomorphic forms because that is the symbology our ancient brains give them because of their innate energetic characteristics?
I have no doubt that what we are perceiving, we are perceiving, something is there. However how are we perceiving it is the question. Is that perception correct or is that derived out of our environment and what we know within the realm of this earth? Are we perceiving a real thing or something in symbolic form because we have no other way to recognize it? I present a story, legend really, of the Caribbean Shaman and Christopher Columbus’s ships….
Columbus’ arrival in the New World revealed how cultural belief systems determine what people see—or don’t see. Columbus found that the native people in this new land couldn’t see his clipper ships. The natives were unable to see the big ships because they didn’t believe that big ships existed!
You See What You Believe
In 1492, Columbus landed on the island of Hispaniola, now the countries of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Until Columbus’ arrival, the islanders had only seen and heard of small boats—like their own canoes. The tribe had never seen nor heard of large ocean-going sea craft. So when the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria arrived, the natives couldn’t see the big ships of Christopher Columbus! And the vessels were floating in plain sight right off shore!
“I Don’t See Any Big Ships!”
Why couldn’t the islanders see the big boats? Because nobody in their culture had ever seen big boats before. And nobody had ever written or talked about big boats in their society.
In any culture, the mythmakers—teachers, historians and media—decide people’s reality. The specific world that mythmakers talk and write about determines the aspects of reality that people are able to perceive. The world that these storytellers talk and write about creates a belief system unique to each culture. And this belief system acts as a filter, screening out realities that don’t fit into the cultural conditioning of the society.
The myth keepers who shaped the islanders’ belief systems didn’t recognize the possibility that large ships might exist. And the filter of this belief prevented the natives from seeing the three large sea vessels. … At first!
3 Keys for Unlocking New Possibilities
The island shaman wasn’t able to see the ships when they first arrived. Like his tribespeople, the shaman medicine man wasn’t able to see past the filters of his cultural conditioning.
But unlike the common folk of his tribe, the medicine man was educated by radical mythmakers—shaman elders. These nonconformist teachers were always exploring “new worlds.”
From these elders, the shaman learned that a person only sees the elements in the world that the person’s mind has been exposed to. The ego-mind filters out realities that don’t fit its picture of what exists in the world. But the shaman also learned from his teachers how to bypass the limitations of the ego-mind.
The elders gave the shaman these 3 keys to help him see “outside the box” of his belief system—to perceive the world as it really exists.
Key 1 – Look for a Different Pattern
The 1st key, made famous in the movie Star Wars, is to notice “a disturbance in the force.”
Anchored just offshore, Columbus’ ships are creating out-of-the-ordinary patterns in the ocean waves. Even though he can’t see the ships, the observant shaman does notice unexplained variations in the waves.
Key 2 – Don’t Listen to Your Mind!
Curious, the shaman investigates the unusual wave patterns. As he begins his inquiry, he uses the 2nd key: “Don’t trust your mind!”
Generations of medicine men and women have passed down this key to happiness. The 2nd key alerts the shaman to the limitations of his ego-mind. The shaman understands that his mind only perceives realities that his mind has been exposed to by his culture. Limited by its belief system, the mind is unaware of a boundless world teeming with unfiltered possibilities.
Key 3 – Open to New Possibilities
From his elders, the medicine man learned that any unusual pattern in our world always indicates that something has changed in our reality. But, in this instance, the shaman is not yet seeing the specific element that has been added or taken away. In order to see what element has changed, he lets go of how his ego-mind “thinks” the world operates. He opens himself to making a fresh discovery—the 3rd key.
As a result of deciding to allow new possibilities into his life, the shaman sees the cause of the peculiar patterns: the never-before-imagined clipper ships! As soon as the shaman perceives the large ships, he tells his tribe the ships exist and points to exactly where they are. The rest of the islanders are then able to perceive the vessels.

As the UFO ships and their forms have evolved over time is it simply different ET races or the changing technology over the years or our ability to understand it as we have progressed in our technology that has led to this noticeable change?
In a dualistic society such as ours are the reptilians simply a symbolic way to recognize our darker sides? Or do they really exist? Psychologically speaking, the way most people try to rid themselves of an inner demon is to project in onto the outside world as something separate from them.
In the holographic symbolic universe, is everything that we see as manifested simply a symbol for an energetic concept?
Good, thought provoking attitudes from our Younger Generation of talented investigators. AND NEW QUESTIONS… with which to go looking for that damned quantum box…
