But what if mermaids are not just legends, but actually real? And what if they are not native to Earth, but came from another planet?
This may sound like a wild speculation, but some researchers have proposed that mermaids could be a form of extraterrestrial life that adapted to the aquatic environment of Earth.
They argue that mermaids could have arrived on Earth millions of years ago, either by accident or by design, and evolved to blend in with the marine life. They could have developed intelligence, culture, language, and technology, but remained hidden from human civilization.
One of the main proponents of this theory is Dr. Paul Robertson, a former marine biologist who claims to have evidence of mermaid existence. He says he has recorded sounds and images of mermaids using a special underwater microphone and camera. He also says he has witnessed mermaid attacks on humans and other animals, and that the government is covering up the truth.
Dr. Robertson’s claims are controversial and have been dismissed by many experts as hoaxes or misinterpretations. However, he is not the only one who believes in the possibility of mermaid aliens.
Some ancient cultures, such as the Sumerians and the Babylonians, depicted mermaids as gods or messengers from the stars. Some modern UFO enthusiasts also suggest that mermaids could be related to the mysterious USOs (unidentified submerged objects) that are sometimes reported in the oceans.
Of course, there is no conclusive proof that mermaids exist, let alone that they are aliens. But there is also no definitive proof that they don’t. The oceans are vast and largely unexplored, and there could be many secrets hidden in their depths.
Although human technology was not advanced thousands of years ago, strangely enough, many legends featuring similar stories were passed down between different civilizations who lived far away from each other. For example, many religions say that the world began in chaos and describe the Great Flood.
There is also a unique legend throughout the world about creatures known as mermaids. In 1931, French anthropologists Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen discovered a group of relatively primitive “Dogon” people living in West Africa near the Niger Bend.
At first, Griaule was fascinated by the Dogon culture because they were not only well versed in biological anatomy, but even had their own astronomical calendar. But what surprised Griaule even more was that more than 3,000 years ago, they already knew about the existence of Sirius B. Sirius B is a white dwarf star 8.6 light-years away from Earth.
Because Sirius B is located next to “Sirius A,” which is several times brighter and bigger, Sirius B is not visible to the naked eye by people on Earth.
In fact, it was not until 1862 that humans saw Sirius B faintly with a telescope for the first time, but due to the limitations of technology at that time, it wasn’t until after 1928 that humans fully understood Sirius B. However, the Dogon people knew about it 3,000 years ago!
The only difference was that instead of calling it Sirius B, the Dogons called it Po Tolo. The Dogon priest told Griaule that although they could not see Sirius B, they knew it would emit a white glow and circle Sirius A in an elliptical orbit once every 50 years. And this is exactly the same 50 years that NASA later calculated. This is quite amazing.
If Sirius B is not visible to the naked eye, how did the Dogon calculate this orbit cycle? The priest told Griaule that the Dogon knew all this because a long time ago, a group of half-human, half-fish (also known as the fish people) came down from the sky, and they were from Sirius B.
Formed about 35 million years ago, Lake Baikal, located in Siberia, Russia, is the largest and deepest freshwater lake in the world. According to declassified files of the Soviet Union, this ancient lake may be alive with creatures we don’t know about.
It all started in 1982. That year, the Soviet military brought a team to Lake Baikal for diving training, but strangely enough, just as they were diving about 50 meters underwater, they suddenly came across six large creatures. The point is that apart from the helmet, the creatures were not wearing any diving equipment at all. Could this be some new technology invented by other countries?
The leader of the group decided to capture one alive, so he gestured and gave instructions, but before the team members could act, suddenly a wave of energy similar to sonar waves came out from the direction of the unknown creatures and pushed the seven divers to the surface.
Because this energy was too powerful, coupled with the process of surfacing too fast, three of the seven divers went into a state of shock, and the rest of the team fell into a coma. In the end, three members died.
The Soviet Union’s most famous scientist, Vladimir Azhazha, was dispatched to investigate the incident, but the declassified files did not mention the results of the investigation.
Although the results were not published, it was enough to arouse curiosity about the possible existence of intelligent life beneath the deep sea, and the only question was whether these undersea creatures could be the Nommo described by the aborigines of West Africa. However, as speculation continued about what underwater secrets the Soviet Union had discovered back then.
What would happen if we tried to communicate with them
How do we know if they are benevolent or malevolent? What would they want from us, or from our planet?
Communication is the basis of any relationship, and it could be the key to understanding and coexisting with a possible alien civilization. But communication is also a complex and challenging process, especially across different species and cultures.
To communicate with the mermaids, we would first have to find a way to establish contact and signal our intentions. We would have to use a medium that they can perceive and respond to, such as sound, light, or gestures.
We would also have to avoid any actions that they may interpret as hostile or threatening, such as approaching too fast or too close, or using weapons or devices.
Next, we would have to find a way to exchange information and meaning. We would have to learn their language and symbols, or create a common language that both parties can understand.
We would also have to overcome any barriers or biases that may hinder our comprehension or expression, such as noise, distortion, or prejudice.
Finally, we would have to find a way to build trust and rapport. We would have to show respect and curiosity for their culture and values, and share our own culture and values with them.
We would also have to demonstrate empathy and cooperation for their needs and interests, and seek mutual benefits and goals with them.
Communicating with the mermaids could be a rewarding and enlightening experience for both sides. It could open new horizons of knowledge and discovery, and foster new bonds of friendship and collaboration.
It could also help us resolve any conflicts or misunderstandings that may arise between us, and prevent any harm or violence that may occur.
But communicating with the mermaids could also be a risky and dangerous endeavor for both sides. It could expose us to new threats and challenges, and create new conflicts and tensions.
It could also reveal secrets and differences that may shock or offend us, and provoke reactions that may harm or hurt us.
Communicating with the mermaids is not a simple or easy task, but a complex and difficult one. It requires patience and courage, curiosity and respect, empathy and cooperation.
It also requires caution and prudence, awareness and preparedness, responsibility and accountability. It is a gamble that could pay off or backfire.
The mystery of the mermaids is not just a fantasy, but a possibility that we may have to face someday. Whether they are aliens or not, they are part of our world, and we are part of theirs. How we communicate with them could change our future forever.
