Stephen Hawking and the Extraterrestrial Janos Affair

A few days ago NASA has dropped a big public hint that the U.S. Government/Military is in contact with one or more extraterrestrial civilizations. And where does this announcement come from? From chief NASA administrator Charles Bolden, who is not only a former astronaut but also has had a highly distinguished military career. He was a test pilot with the U.S. Navy, and was a Commanding General for Operation Desert Thunder in Kuwait. From some leaks, the U.S. Navy was long ago put in charge of certain extraterrestrial programs in the U.S. Military. So if anyone in "in the know", Charles Bolden is one of them. Now here is this news item from NASA must learn to do more with less:
NASA just confirmed what sci-fi enthusiasts have known all along: There are other civilizations out there.
This bombshell was dropped Tuesday by NASA Administrator Charles Bolden at the Humans 2 Mars Summit in Foggy Bottom. “Here in the Western world we think very shortsighted,” he explained. “We think about the time in which we’re going to be on this Earth, or which our kids or grandkids are going to be on this Earth. Many other civilizations think muuuuuch longer than that, and we need to start thinking that way.”
Many other civilizations! Klingons, Romulans and Vulcans?
Bolden, a former astronaut, did not say. But he spoke about being in a race to colonize other worlds before the sun burns out like other stars have.
“One of these days that’s going to be the story of our star, the sun,” he said. “And so if this species is to survive indefinitely, we need to become a multi-planet species. So one reason we need to go to Mars is so we can learn a little about living on another planet, so that when Mikaley, my granddaughter, is ready to move out of the solar system we’ll know a lot more about living away from this planet than we know today.”
The reason why this statement caught my attention was from another claimed extraterrestrial contact from a planet known as Iarga, probably from the Epsilon Eridani system.  Its one of the few where I have seen they have provided pretty good wise advice and a practical philosophy. See Extraterrestrial Contact from Iarga: their Origin and Philosophy and Extraterrestrial Contact from Epsilon Eridani and Emanuel Swedenborg. One of the main criticisms they had of human society is that we are extremely short-sighted in our planning, and are extremely wasteful and inefficient. Due to wars between nations, we do not look to long term planning, and capitalism favors wastefulness and competition. There is an old Native American Proverb:

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, but rather we borrow it from our children

I am suspecting that the advice of certain extraterrestrial parties is helping to drive the NASA agenda - specifically, colonization of Mars and intercepting an asteroid. Could it be that they have warned us of an impending disaster, and that are only hope for survival is to eventually move off of earth? Such is the plot of a program known as Alternative 3. There was another extraterrestial contact which warned of a future asteroid impact - for that see An Extraterrestrial Prophecy. And NASA is moving suspiciously fast to drive the colonization of Mars - see The Secret Space Program and Hidden Intelligence. I have seen a few leaks that indicate we may already be there, but in order to hide this leak it is covered up with some very vocal (and wacky) "disinformants" in order to discredit the thought in the eyes of the public.

Other than colonization of Mars and intercepting asteroids, if there is any government policy that I would say they would be most interested in, it would be control of nuclear weapons, and preserving the environment of the earth. The Iargan contact also stated that how advanced a society is depends on how they treat the least fortunate person of that society. But another hidden aspect of the extraterrestrial presence is how they are helping us to advance our technology at an extremely rapid pace - for that see the book The Day After Roswell by Philip Corso, from a U.S. military insider who was in charge of taking the knowledge and seeding U.S. corporations to insert the technology in our society. The danger here is we advance too far technologically and ignore our spiritual and social aspects of our development. In this area, I have seen a few high level leaks of those "in the know" who have indicated that our scientific knowledge in physics and mathematics is deficient. One of them is General Wesley Clark. From General Wesley K. Clark on UFOs:
Clark said he was a great believer in the space program and wanted a vision well beyond that of a  new shuttle or space plane.  He hoped mankind would eventually leave this planet and explore space beyond the solar system.  Clark thought such a vision could probably require a lifetime of research and development in various fields of science and technology. Then at the end of his remarks, Clark dropped a bombshell when he said the following:
       "We need to look at the realms of applied and higher mathematics.  I still believe in E = mc squared.  But I can't believe that in all of human history, we'll never ever be       able to go beyond the speed of light to reach where we want to go.  I happen to       believe that mankind can do it.  I've argued with physicists about it.  I've argued with best friends about it.  I just have to believe it.  It's my only faith-based initiative."
The mass media then mocked Clark for his remarks, claiming that Clark said he believed in "time travel."  But Clark never said any such thing, only that he believed we would one day travel faster than light.
Later at another event, David Rudiak happened to catch Wesley Clark and asked him directly about UFOs:
Q: Gen. Clark, when you were running for President, you said you thought mankind would one day fly faster than light and visit the stars. My question is, when you were in the military were you ever briefed on the subject of U.F.O.s? 
At this point Clark looked down for a moment and shook his head, perhaps somewhat chagrined at being put on the spot or thinking how he should respond, but then looked at me and answered:
A: I heard a bit. In fact, I'm going to be in Roswell, New Mexico tonight.
Q: So you were briefed? 
A: There are things going on. But we will have to work out our own mathematics.
So WHAT does THAT mean? We have to work out our own mathematics??? And I saw another high level leaker who indicated that concerning extraterrestrials and UFOs, who again mentioned the same problem: we have to work out our own mathematics. So, lets hypothetically consider the situation where perhaps they offer help and advice, but when it comes to the actual knowledge of physics and mathematics involving faster than light travel, they say we are on our own. So if you are in the U.S. military, and you are in that sort of dilemma, who would you consult? If it were me, I would consult Stephen Hawking, an English theoretical physicist and brilliant mathematician, who is known for his work on black holes. So has Stephen Hawking been consulted? Yes. I have seen two "off the record" comments from Stephen Hawking, where somebody let him in on some information (specifically, concerning Tony Dodd, Human Extraterrestrials, and a Stranger in the Pentagon).  But "on the record", Stephen Hawking said this concerning extraterrestrials (from Hawking: Aliens may pose risks to Earth - he speaks "hypothetically" but perhaps is stating some information of what was disclosed to him:
Hawking claims in a new documentary titled "Into the Universe With Stephen Hawking" that intelligent alien life forms almost certainly exist — but warns that communicating with them could be "too risky.""We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet," Hawking said. "I imagine they might exist in massive ships ... having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach.
The 68-year-old scientist said a visit by extraterrestrials to Earth might well be like Christopher Columbus arriving in the Americas, "which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans."
He speculated that most extraterrestrial life would be similar to microbes, or small animals. Microbial life might exist far beneath the Martian surface, where liquid water is thought to trickle through the rock. Marine creatures might also conceivably live in huge oceans of water beneath a miles-thick layer of ice on Europa, a moon of Jupiter.
But if a scientific census could be extended beyond our solar system to the rest of the Milky Way and beyond, the odds in favor of life's existence rise dramatically, Hawking said.
"To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens perfectly rational," he said. “The real challenge is to work out what aliens might actually be like."
Hawking said an attack by interstellar predators is just one of the dismaying possibilities in the search for intelligent life beyond Earth. Another possibility is that intelligence itself might be inimical to life. Hawking pointed out that humanity has put itself on the edge of its own destruction by creating nuclear bombs and other weapons of mass destruction.
"If the same holds for intelligent aliens, then they might not last long," he said. "Perhaps they all blow themselves up soon after they discover that E=mc2. If civilizations take billions of years to evolve, only to vanish virtually overnight, then sadly we've next to no chance of hearing from them."
Note again, Stephen Hawking mentions the speed of light in the context of extraterrestrials - just as with Wesley Clark. It is a bit unfortunate that Hawkings is assuming they will be warlike and hostile like our society. So, in the above quote from Stephen Hawking, was he speaking hypothetically, or factually, concerning a civilization whose own planet was destroyed and are now wandering nomads in massive ships?


And with that preface, we are now led to this very strange extraterrestrial contact which I call the "Janos Affair." If true, it is a very sad story. It is not well known and probably forgotten by many, but before it is completely forgotten, I want to revive it, because the witnesses are probably still alive. Its a strong case as there are multiple witnesses. Here is a picture of the family who were abducted and taken on board a flying saucer while on a road trip in England in 1978:

As is typical with most extraterrestrial abductions, the memory of the event was erased from the adults. However in this particular case, they goofed up, and did not erase the memory of the children. They chose to withhold their last names to remain anonymous at the time. The research into this event is documented in the book The Janos People by Frank Johnson, who had to piece together the story through hypnosis (some through normal recall) and many hours of recorded interviews. For about one hour, they were brought aboard a flying saucer that were piloted by humans just like us. During that time, they showed a video of the last days of their planet before they escaped. Below is a quote from the book which summarizes the story of the Janos people. The story reminds me of...exactly what Stephen Hawking said. The quote is long, but I think it is interesting enough to quote in its entirety:
The Janos people are, in the literal sense of the term, extra-terrestrial: they come from another world, which they call Janos, a planet "several thousand light years" away from Earth. At the same time, they are terrestrial in origin: their remote ancestors, in the prehistoric past, lived here and originated here; the people seen in this particular incident appeared to be Europeans of a Nordic type. 
...JANOS IS THE name of a world that died. Janos (pronounced 'Jan e-oss', the first syllable stressed) was a planet, very like our own, with blue seas and lakes, green fields and hills, trees and grass; with towns, cities and quiet countryside; with ships and boats and aircraft; with pleasant single-storey homes and families of men, women and children, people very like us. People who laugh and make jokes; gentle, kindly, sensitive people of deep understanding, who abhor violence and will not make war, even to obtain that which they most desire. People who, even in extreme need, do not want to bring trouble on others. People very like us; but perhaps in all honesty we ought to say, the kind of people we would like to be, rather than the kind of people we of this planet all too often are.
Janos had two moons, both small compared with our moon. One of these, the nearer one, called Saton, (pronounced 'Zaton'; but the spelling Saton was given by the Janos people) imperceptibly slowed, millenium after millenium, by the friction of solid tides raised in its rocky crust by the gravitational field of the planet, had crept nearer and nearer to Janos, until it was too close for stability; the cohesive forces which held it together were finely balanced against tidal disruption.
The people of Janos had known for a long time of their danger. For a long time they had known that they must eventually leave the planet, as the crew and passengers of a sinking ship must take to the boats.
With a science and technology more advanced than ours, they long ago developed the art of space travel, and constructed spaceships in which they explored the worlds within reach of them, looking for a new home, to which they could go when the time came to leave Janos.
Their exploration ships ranged far and wide among the nearer stars and their attendant planetary worlds. This interstellar househunting took a long time; and the crisis crept nearer. Many planets were surveyed, and some of them would have made possible homes.
But one green, lovely world had attracted them from the first, although they knew it only by tradition; because, they tell us, it is so like Janos as it used to be. There was a feeling of home about it. They had known about Earth for a long time, from their history books; they knew where it was in the sky.
...The Janos people have known about Earth for a very long time - long before a double disaster drove them from their home world. For besides the threat of the fragmenting moon, which they had long warning of, an unsuspected danger lay in wait for them, for which they were totally unprepared; this other peril we will come to presently.
Like everyone else with long warning of the need for action, they ran it a little too long; and the rain of great rocks began before they quite expected it. They were almost ready: out in orbit, above the fragmenting moon, the great fleet lay in its gravitational anchorage, a host of mighty ships, clustered about one really stupendous ring-shaped flagship, a veritable city in space, capable between them of taking in the entire population of Janos, many millions in number, and provisioned and ready for a long interstellar voyage. They had already picked out their destination.
The big ships, built in orbit, could not embark directly from the ground; and hundreds of smaller vessels were needed to ferry the population up from planet to fleet, making endless to-and-from trips, each time carrying a full load of men, women and children, with all their stores and necessities. These smaller vessels, lens-shaped ships of the kind familiar to us as 'flying saucers', were built in huge subterranean shipyards, far below the threatened planetary surface, in vast artificial caverns whose lofty roofs were supported by massive columns cut out of the solid rock, columns which flared out trumpet-wise at the top, to meet the curving roof.
The operation of embarking a whole world of people was well advanced when, ahead of estimated time, a series of minor rockfalls gave warning that the inner moon, Saton, was about to break up. 
The English family whose story is told in this book have been shown films taken during one of these earlier rockfalls: they describe rocks "as big as houses" falling from the sky, crushing the buildings and setting them on fire. The film's sound track records the screams of people trapped in the blazing wreckage.
...The early beginning of rockfall created a complicated, fast-moving crisis. Those who were not killed outright made, if they could, for the nearest tunnel-mouth; these were entrances, of two very different sizes, to the system of tunnels which led down, far down into the planet's crust, to reach the complex of subterranean shipyards. The small tunnels were intended for workmen to come and go.
Underground, the ships which were in the shipyards and ready to fly hastily took on board as many people as they could cram in, and flew out through the great tunnels, shaped to allow a lens-shaped ship to fly through them with a little room to spare, up to the distant surface, risking the rain of rocks, any one of which would have crushed it like an egg hit by a cricket-ball, and up into orbit with the fleet. Ships returning to the ground from orbit repeatedly entered the tunnels to take on more refugees, until the battering of the rocks caused the tunnel-mouths to cave in dangerously, and the rescue operation had to be suspended until the end of rockfall, several months ahead.
We do not know how many were left underground: they should have been safe enough during the main rockfall which now began as Saton slowly disintegrated, covering the planetary surface with millions of rocks, great and small; for deep underground, the rocks could not hurt them, and they had supplies awaiting transhipment, and uncompleted ferry ships to live in.
But there was a complication, which the Janos people now admit they had completely overlooked. The world of Janos was one which used a lot of electrical power to supply its highly-automated industries and its domestic needs, more developed than ours. The main, if not the only source of energy was a network of huge nuclear power stations using uranium, scattered over the planet on the exposed surface; wisdom after the event would no doubt have put them deep underground. It had been assumed that they would be destroyed by the rockfall, like everything else, and would simply cease to operate. With the destruction of all surface industry and the abandonment of the planetary surface, electricity would not be needed: almost certainly the subterranean shipyards had independent emergency generators of low power, which would provide some lighting and ventilation for the entombed survivors.

But it was not as simple as that. The ship people showed one member of our English family pictures of what happened. She saw, first, a typical Janos power station, so sharply defined that she was later able to make a detailed drawing of it; she described it as "like a gasometer inside the Eiffel Tower" - a very apt description. It is shown in figure 19 on page 144; you will see a massive dull grey cylinder supported within a four-legged tapering pylon of shiny metal lattice-work construction.
Then, as she watched, the whole structure disintegrated in a tremendously brilliant flash. A second or two later, there was another flash, far away in the distance; then another still further away; and more and more flashes, very remote. The Janos man who showed her the picture said: "There was a chain reaction".
All the power stations of Janos exploded, one after another very quickly; as one disintegrated, we are told, it caused the nearest also to explode, and that detonated the next, and so on. What exactly went wrong in terms of nuclear engineering, we cannot explain in detail; but it seems likely that the massive protective shell, which had withstood the earlier, lighter rockfalls, was finally ruptured by the later tremendous battering, and that the control mechanism was wrecked, causing the pile to run out of control and to 'go critical'. Engineers must explain this more fully than I can.What is quite clear is that the heavy biological shielding was explosively ruptured; and that thousands of tons of intensely radioactive dust swirled around the planet with the turbulent winds created by the multiple explosions. The swirling dust clouds were seen in later pictures; and we know that a lot of this heavy, gritty dust, sucked down no doubt by ventilation machinery still operating, found its way down the tunnels into the underground shipyards, where the people left behind were still living. The entire planet, surface and underground alike, was drenched in radioactivity.
Communications between the planet and the fleet in orbit had failed with the loss of power; and the people in the ships had no idea what was happening in the shipyards. They were in orbit, waiting, for a long time; when the rockfall finally ceased, they still thought it would be possible to send rescue ships down to pick up survivors, and they sent powerful anti-gravity equipment capable of lifting heavy rocks and clearing the choked tunnel-mouths.
When the rescue ships finally penetrated to the underground shipyards, their crews were horrified to find that, although many were still alive, they were already doomed to a slow death by severe radiation poisoning. Not one could be saved. They could not be taken in by the rescue ships; it would have been dangerous, even to touch them. They had to be left to die.
The rescue ship crews did what they could to organise for the needs of the sick people, without becoming themselves contaminated. Somebody invented a new type of clothing -rather like a monk's long-skirted habit, with a deep hood or cowl over the head - to give better protection against the lethal dust. The sad routine began, of regular daily visits to collect the dead bodies, and remove them for disposal.
As the survivors became fewer in number, they were concentrated into a few localities, until finally only one shipyard-refuge still had men and women living in it. At this point, a film record was made, by a camera mounted behind the windscreen of one of the last float-vehicles to make its melancholy rounds; the film shows a half-dozen of those still able to walk, carrying a roughly-made coffin to the vehicle, where it was loaded into a cargo-space underneath. While it waited, the vehicle still hovered a few feet above the ground.
The bearers looked like very old people; they shuffled slowly and hopelessly about, "as if they had given up". Some were blind; all had lost their teeth, so that their cheeks were sunken; and their hands were deformed and claw-like, with huge lumps on the knuckles.
The ships remained in orbit until the last of the sick people died. Then the great migration fleet moved slowly out of its orbital station, leaving Janos for the last time. Gradually its speed built up, as the navigators set course for Earth's star -what we call the Sun, thousands of light-years away. They knew its galactic coordinates, and how to find it. The acceleration was maintained until the fleet was flashing across the Galaxy at a velocity close to the speed of light. In this way, a journey which, as measured by "Earth time," took many thousands of years was completed, according to the ships' clocks and calendars, in just two years.
The traumatic stress of the double disaster - especially their grief over those who were left to die - affected the Janos people deeply; but gradually, as the voyage went on, their natural buoyancy of spirit returned. Today, they show the emotional effect of all that befell them - loss of their home, the rock fall, and their shocked grief over the fate of those left behind - only when talking of these things to visitors, and showing them films, brings it all back.
So there you have it: exactly the story of Stephen Hawking, of an extraterrestrial race whose planet was destroyed and are now wandering around like nomads. The reason for the abduction of the family in 1978?  They gave them each a medical exam, to see if they could adapt to living here on Earth. I think one of the main differences between us and them is that they have a higher pulse rate. Although the author did not speculate on this, I suspect that may have been developed from a thinner atmosphere on Janos.


Each extraterrestrials human on the disk gave their name, and pronounced it: one odd thing is that the names look like they are all Greek names. Rather than recount the whole story I will mention some quotes from the encounter. Here are some quotes from the ship's captain named ANOUXIA:
'We are travellers - we have been travelling for a very, very long time, and we have come a very, very long way.'
'We have been watching you for a long time: we are looking at you; we are studying you, to see if we can stay here.' 
'We cannot go back.'
Here are quotes from the space pilot UXIAULIA, whose wife VURNA was killed on Janos before she could escape. The information here is significant - there is evidently another hostile extraterrestrial race, and some of the Janos people had been killed by them in a war (I will return to this later):
'You are our people, because you are the same as us; we could learn from each other.' 
'You can help us by giving us a home, friendship, a chance to live again.' 
'We must have somewhere to live: we cannot float around in space forever.' 
'Together we can conquer all space: other planets are inhabited; not all are friendly. Too far to do much harm at the moment.' 
'Some of our people have been destroyed by inhabitants of other planets: we cannot allow this to happen any more; so we only come in peace, if all agree.' 
'There must be no war: we do not want to cause any trouble.' 
'We have suffered too much sadness and sorrow; we cannot fight more wars. We would rather die in space.'
Note how they stress they do not want war. But from the way Stephen Hawking spoke, it was if he had spoken to some in the U.S. Military, who always will assume a hostile intent. Here are some other quotes from UXIAULIA:
"You seem to enjoy doing things the hard way here." 
"You should let your machines do more for you." 
"We are far more automated; we are two hundred years ahead of you."

And when they look at us, they see themselves as they once were:
"We knew about Earth from the past…." 
"We knew where it was in the sky." 
"Looking at you people and the planet, it is like stepping back into one of our own history books; to us, you are living history."
They want to live here, but they want to make sure that their presence would not cause a war. When one of the abductees was asked why they would think it would cause a war, she said: Because people want to use their knowledge to control other people. And there lies the problem. The U.S. military keeps their presence a secret, in the hopes of developing better weapons for military superiority. So on their side, it is to their advantage to remain hidden, and unknown, to avoid any panic or cause of war.

There are no photos or videos of this encounter, but it is an important one as it is one of the few that reveals the intentions of those flying these craft.  And if anyone wants to see videos, or more current witness encounters, there is just no end to them. It is happening every month now. For example, I just found this one at random - 40 minutes worth of UFO videos from the last month or so (its from Third Phase of Moon, who unfortunately do absolutely no video analysis on these - but a few of these shots look pretty good):


Two things caught my attention concerning this extraterrestrial contact: these human extraterrestrials claimed that they originally came from earth in ancient times, and they put a lot of stress on the spelling of their names. Now, it is highly unlikely that an advanced civilization developed here on earth. What is more likely, is that in ancient times humans were abducted to "seed" another planet. Their names also look very similar to Greek names. And we see this a lot in ancient Greek myths: a "god" looks down from heaven who falls in love with a woman and attempts to abduct or kidnap her. The children of such a union - half human, half god - are often afterwards taken up to dwell among the stars. Thus the Greeks often named their constellations after such children. In the Bible (to the horror of ministers who will debate me on this), we have two possible cases of this kind of situation in the stories of Enoch and Elijah having never died but were taken up into heaven - the case of Elijah having occurred in the same time frame of ancient Greece (9th century B.C.). As for the possible Greek connection, the author said this:
As to the possible Hellenic link (the very word Janos has a distinctively Greek ring to it; and Saton is actually a Greek word), let us remember that, while present-day Greeks conform, in general, to the Eastern Mediterranean type of European, their classical art and ancient mythology refer back to a blue-eyed fair type as an ideal - a type identical with the Janos people of today.
Here is another comment on a possible Greek connection from the author:
Of the Janos language, we know very little, but just enough to be interesting. We have, so far, thirteen proper nouns with their pronunciation: JANOS SATON SARNIA ANOUXIA UXIAULIA VURNA AKILIAS SERKILIAS COSENTIA SAUNUS VONASON FAUN and PHUSANTHEAS. The spelling in English letters was provided by the spaceship people for the first five of these; the remainder are our spelling of a spoken word, though Natasha knew that Phusantheas began with a P, and the spelling of the last four may have been given to her by Akilias.I was at once struck by the affinity of the words, taken as a sample of a language, with archaic Greek; Phusantheas has a very Greek ring, and Saton is actually an old Greek word meaning a corn measure; here it is applied to the inner moon of Janos, the one that broke up. All of the words are possible, considered as words in a language akin to old Greek. 
There is an interesting connection that the author did not make: the planet name of Janos is similar in name to the ancient Roman god of Janus, the two faced god:

And who is the god Janus? He is a bit odd. Here is a description from Wikipedia:
In ancient Roman religion and mythJanus (LatinIanuspronounced [ˈiaː.nus]) is the god of beginnings and transitions, thence also of gates, doors, passages, endings and time. He is usually depicted as having two faces, since he looks to the future and to the past. The Romans named the month of January (Ianuarius) in his honor.
Janus presided over the beginning and ending of conflict, and hence war and peace. The doors of his temple were open in time of war, and closed to mark the peace. As a god of transitions, he had functions pertaining to birth and to journeys and exchange, and in his association with Portunus, a similar harbor and gateway god, he was concerned with travelling, trading and shipping.
If Janus is the god of beginnings, also of travel and shipping - what better name for a new planet than JANOS? Or, perhaps it goes the other way around: ancient Romans came into contact with them, and began to worship their planet as a god. So was Janus an exclusively Roman god? Of that scholars are not so clear either. For example:
Janus-like heads of gods related to Hermes have been found in Greece, perhaps suggesting a compound god.
Hermes of course is the Greek god of Mercury, the god of travel. At this point it is very tempting to associate the extraterrestrial human race with the extraterrestrials of Mercury that Swedenborg saw in his visions - for they were also nomadic, travelling from star system to star system, described in his works Heavenly Arcana and Earths in the Universe.

Scholars are puzzled as to the actual entymology of Janus and its origin:
Another etymology proposed by Nigidius Figulus is related by Macrobius: Ianus would be Apollo and Diana Iana, by the addition of a D for the sake of euphony. This explanation has been accepted by A. B. Cook and J. G. Frazer. It supports all the assimilations of Janus to the bright sky, the sun and the moon. It supposes a former *Dianus, formed on *dia- < *dy-eð2 from Indo-European root *dey- shine represented in Latin by diesday, Diovis and Iuppiter. However the form Dianus postulated by Nigidius is not attested.
This entymology is interesting - perhaps the myth is not trying to relate a pairing of the Sun and Moon, but rather the extraterrestrial planet Janos and its moon Saton? In myth Janus is said to have accepted Saturn as a guest and shared his kingdom with him for teaching him the art of agriculture. Back in Roman times, the furthest planet they knew of was Saturn. Perhaps the extraterrestrial planet JANOS - if it was explained that it was beyond Saturn - was the actual origin of this myth?

As Janus is this "odd ball out" in terms of explaining the origin, some scholars have proposed an interesting theory where Janus originated from some far off travelers:
The uniqueness of Janus in Latium has suggested to L. Adams Holland and J. Gagé the hypothesis of a cult brought from far away by sailors and strictly linked to the amphibious life of the primitive communities living on the banks of the Tiber. In the myth of Janus the ship of Saturn as well as the myth of Carmenta and Evander are remininscent of an ancient Preroman sailing life. The elements that seem to connect Janus to sailing are presented in two articles by J. Gagé summarised here below.
1. The boat of Janus and the beliefs of the primitive sailing techniques.
a) The proximity of Janus and Portunus and the functions of the flamen Portunalis.
So are we talking about sailors here, or travelers of an extraterrestrial sort?


The story of the extraterrestrial Janos people reminds me of something. Does anyone remember the movie series, Battlestar Galactica?

What was the story again? Oh yes, their planet gets destroyed, and an entire armada then leaves and goes on a nomadic search for a planet they know from myth and history - earth. And they are hunted down by another hostile race. And in the story, there are 12 colonies, and some of them have Greek names - similar to the 12 Greek gods or the 12 primary Roman gods. Oh wait, that's the exact story of the Janos people...and when was this series released? The year 1978. The abductees in the Janos affair were told that the flying saucer was the one that was chosen to make first contact. And when did this contact occur? In June of 1978. At first one would think the abductees took this story from the movie. But that is impossible - the pilot episode aired in September of 1978. In Battlestar Galactica: they are hunted down by a cybernetic race known as Cylons. In the recent remake of 2004, the story of the Cylons changes dramatically - they are now known to be experts at genetic engineering, and making clones of humans....

Is there any hidden truth to this movie series?  Or is it all just a weird coincidence?  Others have noted other hidden messages in movies, and the CIA has admitted into influencing the plot lines of some of these.  So real or not, I dedicate this song from the movie Oblivion (Susanne Sundfør Extended Mix) to the Janos people:

M83 OBLIVION LYRICS (Featuring Susanne Sundfor)

Since I was young, I knew I’d find you
But our love was a song sung by a dying swan
And in the night, you hear me calling,
You hear me calling
And in your dreams you see me falling, falling

Breathe in the light
I’ll stay here in the shadow
Waiting for a sign, as the tide grows
Higher, and higher, and higher

And when the nights are long
All those stars recall your goodbye, your goodbye

And in the night you'll hear me calling,
You'll hear me calling
And in your dreams you'll see us falling, falling
And in now you'll hear me calling,
You'll hear me calling
And in your dreams you'll see us falling, falling

Breathe in the light and say goodbye
Breathe in the light and say goodbye.


  1. Hypothetically, if the Janos people are in their millions, possibly billions after how many light years travel? do you really believe they come in peace and would be willing to shade tbis planet? We must look like the equivalent of cave dwellers to them. Of course tbey will eradicate us!

    The universe is a big pkace and it would be arrogant for Humanity to presume they are tbey only ones. Lets just hope, tbat Aliens are not all bad. I wouldnt trust them as far as i could tbrow them - everything about them screams out NAZIS!

    Wake up and smell the stardust!

    1. There are many planets in the galaxy, and if they were to pick one they would probably pick one that was free from war where they could live in peace. "Warfare" is something for barbaric societies, in elevated societies it is all about persuasion and influence. They tend to look long term and warfare is very short-sighted.

      There is a lot of media propaganda to look at them as "evil." But look at us, how politicians instill false paranoia about foreigners. We can't even live and accept others among ourselves. If we can't do that, no way will they attempt open contact.

      As for extraterrestrials, we should not be naive, there was a NASA study that proposed different scenarios where they may be good, bad, or just neutral. Or they consider us useful for scientific study, but that's it. But beware of propaganda that makes them all to be evil, beware of false flag scenarios for military purposes.

      What I find most interesting about the Janos affair is they say they are us - they came from this solar system. Which brings up questions about the origins of the human race.
