Remains of Ancient Extraterrestrial Laboratory Discovered in China

Published

on



Thirteen years ago, a group of Chinese researchers located and explored an ancient structure so unusual that an extraterrestrial hypothesis was promptly taken into consideration.

The fascinating ruins were discovered in the remote wilderness that makes up most of the intersection between China’s Qinghai province and the Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. Throughout history, humans have seldom settled in this harsh and inhospitable area. Only occasionally, migrant herdsmen pass through the mountainous regions to the north.

No industrial facilities can be found in the zone, much less the remnants of civilizations with advanced metalworking capabilities…

    There's so much about our past the elite are terrified we might find out. Makes you wonder what.
    Probably that the same families were responsible for many previous collapses of civilisation. That they destroy us and start again from places of safety.
    There's something – many things – they're determined to keep covered up. These top archaeologists can't fail to see the obvious – the truth we see – so it can only be a conspiracy in their refusal to acknowledge the obvious.
    Everything relating to our history has been hijacked, from archeology to academia. They know they're lying. They know we know. They carry on regardless, teaching lies as facts.
    Is there another word that can explain what is happening other than conspiracy? And that's no theory,that's a fact.

    They are called the Vril. These comments are misinformation. Nephilim . They breathe methane + oxygen , come out at night most of the time . Can walk as a human but usually walk on all fours. Can inhabit humans via their eyes and take over the host . Most celebrities are Vril inhabited . Look up Halena Blavatsky and Aleister Crowley . They are demons . Be careful

    I can prove that there are no aliens….. Look at humans, they find something valuable, they destroy whole ecosystems, and capture, display, and sell all life as pets, if there were aliens, we would be born in pet stores….. Demons came down and showed man alchemy "putting dirt, rocks, ore ect together to make metal, concrete, ext…." Islam teaches us the demons/Ginn cannot build, but use humans to build things for them, …..they have been trying to get man to build the tower to heaven for thousands of years, all cultures have a similar story of "things" telling them to build structures that would open gates to the other place and the creator comes and destroys them…. History repeats itself,that's all this is the same story playing out again and again…..

    basically it's like an older brother that's already grounded "Ginn" trying to get the younger brother "us" in trouble by telling us to behave badly "sin" and most importantly mix all of mom's paint together and smear it all over the walls "tower to heaven", all the while saying we won't get in trouble because the older brother doesn't want to be punished alone……

    ESPAÑOL SPASNISH
    la luna es artificial ya exiate conjunto del planeta tierra desde hace 4,500,000,000 millones de años que equivale 4.5 billones de años y conjunto de toas las especies exiatentes y extintas de estw planeta y conjunto nosostro que conformamos la raza gaians pero hace 64,000,000 millones de años fue el diluvio universal por que planetas de saturno jupiter marte y venoz de veia a simple vista en la superficie de la tierra como un paisaje de otro mundo pero el nuestro pero paso el diluvio y movieron los planetas por clataquismo universalen del la tierra y los planetas si mo hubieran pasa seriamos libre y ni existiria la luna y los planetas saturno venuz marte y jupiter se veria a simple vista como un paisaje de la naturaleza de la tierra y encima en vez d ver la maldita luna veriamos los plametas ya nombrados y seria un paisaje fantastico y en vez de destruir la luna mejor se utilizaria para protegerse de razas invasoras y las razas parasitarias_controladores_planetarios.

    la humanidad es aprisionada en este planeta por parte de la jerarquas planetarios parasitarias-controlarodes que son los REPTILIANOS GRISES DRACONITAS UMMON INSECTOIDESARCONTES INFINITAS RAZAS PARASITARIAS-CONTROLARODES-PLANETARIOS-UNIVERSALES-DIMENSIONALES esas infinitas cantidades de jerarquías parasitarias-controlarodes ellos ya existe desde los inicios de este espacios y tiempos multi-dimensionale-universo infinito que con sus expandió de la negatividad y conquista y esclavizan a las raza esclavas cuando llegan a un planeta recién creado por él multi-dimensionale-universo espacio y tiempo infinito llegan a ese recién planeta para alimentarse de las almas de esos seres primitivos y ellos instauran una tipo de holograma electromagnetismo ypor medio de la luna artificial que es una base pero actual mente nuestro raza esta en constante mas esclavizada esta raza que nosotros comfomamos no se llama humana o humanidad por que significa propiedad de la serpiente que hacen referencia la mutación de los seres primitivos con los jerarquas parasitarias-controlarodes-planetarios pero él planeta que habitamos no se llama tierra y es GAIA y esta raza no seria humana sino LA RAZA GAIANS que significa la gran madre en la lengua Antlatida-lemuriano ante los GAIAN y no humanos eran 3 veces mas altos que los actuales humanos un humano mide mujer 160 cm y hombre 180 cm pero antes era mujer 4.0 metros de altura y hombre 4.5 metros de altura de altura por la mutación con los jerarquas parasitarias-controlarodes-planetarios y eso fue aproximadamente hace 65,000,000 millones de años y la existencia de nosostros los GAIANS HACE 4,5000,000,000 APROXIMADAMENTE 4.5 BILLONES DE AÑOS pero actualemte en un futuro de 100 a 250 años seria todo holográfico e insertado en nuestro cuerpo y la vida artificial autónomo y sera eliminado la esencial espiritual empatica y con la fuente original pero ahora estamos en la era de ACUARIO la era de las fallas de los gobierno y él despertar espiritual gaians y no humanos.

    Esas razas parasitarias que dominan de lo largo y ancho del espacio y tiempo multi-dimensionale-universo solo se hacen pasar por razas positivas ellos sólo esclavizan a las infinitas razas esclavas como la raza humana por parte de las razas parasitarias desde los orígenes de las especie esclavas y nosotros las razas esclavas e incluida la raza gaians sólo la única fuerza que podemos salvarnos de las manipulación de todo tipo y acabaríamos con esas razas parasitarias serian exterminar los lideres jerarquas de las razas parasitarias y una purificación espiritual universal a las poblaciones y clones artificiales de las razas parasitarias. Y esa organizacio "CONFERERACION GALACTICA FEDERACION UNIDA DE PLANETAS CONSEJO DE ADROMEDA COBRA" esta organización de espacio y tiempo multi-dimensionale-universo infinito solo protegen los intereses de los mas privilegiado que son los controladores y ellos llegan a su falsa llegada de ayudad ya que es demasiado tarde y ellos son los que planean los saqueos y la exterminación y modificaciones de las razas esclavas como la gaian y cuando llegan un despertad espiritual de una raza esclava llegan a la falsa de salvarnos y ellos son los responsable de todo mal de este infinito espacio y tiempo multi-dimensionale-universo

    cuando fue el diluvio universal cuñado los anunnakis rebeldes tuvieron comciencia quisieron liberar el planeta y los seres vivos pero llego el diluvio universal se extinguió la mitad de los humanos y esas jerarquías clonado a la otra mitad de la humanidad las características de los humanos clonado eran piel blanca, ojos claros, alto y los humanos sobrevivientes dependiendo del lugar del planeta mutadon su color de piel, estatura, y el color de piel por la radiación de la antlatidad y la lemuria ante el diluvio universal y es universal por que había planetas más cercas que ahora si estuvieran lo veríamos a simple vista como Marte, Saturno, Júpiter y venuz pero ahora sólo vemos la lunar artificiaL que causó todo el desastre y sin la luna serias los libre de todo tipo el planeta se recuperaría y el nivel del mar estuviera a su nivel natural que bajaría a sólo 1 km el nivel del mar sin la luna y se vería la gran antlatidad y lemuria y más territorio en las zonas del los continentes actuales los polos norte y sur que aumentaría que todo el el territorio desde los polos y antlatidad y lemuria y los continentes estuvieran interconectados que conformaría 70% territorio terrestre 30% territorio marítimo

    Los seres dimensionales que son una de las reidades de los arcontes REPTILIANOS anunnakis draconita que nos controlan desde los planos de otras realidades que son las dimensiones superiores es un ser que esta transformado de una sonrisa gigante y larga y sin ojos solo hueco negros sin alma PUES OBVIO es real hay gente tan inconsciente que esa casa esta embrujada o piensan que es un fantasma pero no sino son deidades arconticas y no demoniacas por que la palabra demio viene de la religión cristiana y este ser es tan real que las posibilidades son tan infinitas como este universo infinito y estos seres de la fuente del mal se alimentan de nuestras frecuencias negativas y esos seres están donde sea pero son invisibles y están donde sea y por todo él mundo y en justo momento donde sea cualquier lugar tan minimo que se puede haber uno en ti o ustedes o en yo que su objetivo es controlarnos y no despertad espiritual planetario.

    les digo a las personas que es fanatismo en el sistema de control menta les digo DESPIERTE y vean mas horizontes hacia el infinito no crean y ni confíen en él sistema o una razas extraterrestre a fin de cabo sera un nuevo orden de espacio y tiempo MULTIDIMENSIONALUNIVERSAL infinito y no nuevo orden mundial por que universo infinito por que la facción parasitaria quieren controlar todo el universo infinito que son los planetas para que no evolucionen y que las razas esclavas que vivan en planetas artificiales y alimentarse y Abdursir a las razas o especies para que las razas parasitarias tengan la vida eterna y tener esclavizada a las cantidades infinitas razas o especies esclavos bajo una jerarquía CONTROLIZADA LA ECONOMÍA, LA POLÍTICA, LA RELIGIÓN, LAS NACIONES, IDIOMAS, CLASES SOCIALES, IDEOLOGIAS, CULTURAS, COLOR DE PIEL, ESTATUS SOCIAL DE TODO TIPO, LOS PRECIOS CONTROLIZADOS, LAS REBELIAS LEVAMIENTOS O REVUELTAS SERA REPRIMIDAS DE MANERA DE AMENAZAS SAQUEOS EXTERMINIZACION CAMPOS DE CONCETRACION Y TORTURADAS, EL NEGOCIO DE LA SALUD POR MEDIO DE VIRUZ EXTREMOS,LA COMIDA CON QUIMICOS DAÑINOS PARA NO ACTIVAR AL ADN,REPRIMIR LA LIBRE EXPRESION Y EL INTERNET Y TENER LAS MASAS INSCONSCIENTES DE PURA TENDENCIA MODA Y TENER TERROR y esas razas parasitarias se alimentan ee las frecuencias negativas que es las emociones negativas como el terror amenazados tristes reprimidos humillado y un infinito ect……

    Mas pronto sera mas facil como en 1 a 5 años pero si nos levantamos y tener conciencia la realidad sera tarde como de a 100 a 500 años y todo sera mas controladizado él planeta y en nosotros y sera mas difícil

    PREVENIR QUE LAMENTAR esa es la frase para que si nos levantamos mas pronto y somos mas conscientes de sus trucos bajo ma manga seremos libre y conectarnos con la fuente original y se se hace muy demasiado tarde seriamos mas difícil de salir

    CADQ QUIEN TIENE LA FOMA DE PENSAR LIBREMENTE YO EN MI OPINION ESTO PIENSO QUE ES LA REALIDSD NO AL 100% SINO UN 000000.1% HACIA EL INFINITO POR QUE HAY INFORMACION TAN IMPACTAMTE QUE SERIA DE EXPLICAR LA SITUACION DESFE LOS INICIOS HASTA LA ACTAULIDAD

Virtual Recap: Stanford Drug Discovery 2018
Learn more:

On April 23-24,2018 over 550 people gathered at the Li Ka Shing Conference Center to attend the Third Annual Stanford Drug Discovery Symposium. The event featured a broad range of speakers sharing their expertise in the fields of: academic drug discovery, academic-industry collaboration, science policy, publishing, and research funding. On the first day, the packed-house audience was treated to presentations from academic scientists engaged in groundbreaking research that is laying the foundation for future therapeutic approaches. These included Stanford based Nobel Laureate Brian Kobilka, MD and Edgar Engleman, MD; Kathleen Giacomini, PhD, and Kevan Shokat, PhD from UCSF; and Hugh Rosen, MD, PhD, from the Scripps Research Institute.

Later that afternoon, attendees had the rare opportunity to interact with six top pharmaceutical executives and philanthropists: Ken Frazier, CEO of Merck; Robert Bradway, CEO of Amgen; Joseph Jimenez, former CEO of Novartis; Brent Saunders, CEO of Allergan; Patrick Soon-Shiong, MD, CEO of Nantworks; and Sanford Weill, the Chairman Emeritus of Citigroup and CEO of Casa Rosa Ventures. In this “View from the Top” session moderated by Stanford President Marc Tessier-Lavigne, PhD, the panelists offered their perspectives on drug discovery, including: the future of personalized medicine, the importance of focusing on disease prevention rather than treatment, and the concept that drug pricing could eventually be based on treatment outcomes. The first day ended with the presentation of a Lifetime Achievement Award to Roy Vagelos, MD, former CEO of Merck and current Board chair of Regeneron. Dr. Vagelos was acknowledged in part for his role in leveraging the power of the pharmaceutical industry to make a major impact on global health. During his term as Merck CEO, he personally committed to providing the drug Ivermectin free of charge to anyone in the world for the treatment of elephantiasis and river blindness, with the latter having been since eradicated in multiple Central and South American countries due to Dr. Vagelos’ efforts.

The second day of the Symposium opened with a Keynote address from Janet Woodcock, MD, the Director of the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), who provided a look inside the agency’s new drug regulatory program. This was followed by important presentations about funding priorities from Gary Gibbons, MD, the Director of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), and Maria Millan, MD, President and CEO of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM). Later, the audience was treated to a panel of editors representing the top publications in biomedical science: the New England Journal of Medicine, Nature Medicine, Science, and the Journal of the American Medical Association. The meeting concluded with a dynamic Shark Tank-style session, in which representatives from eight competitively selected start-up biotechnology companies pitched their ideas to a panel of scientists, venture capitalists, and CEOs. The panelists who provided feedback were: George Scangos, PhD (CEO of Vir), Robert Robbins, MD (President of the University of Arizona), Roy Vagelos, MD, Amy Chang, MSEE (CEO of Accompany), Ram Shriram (Founder of Sherpalo), and Wende Hutton, MBA (General Partner, Canaan). The goal of this session was to have this stellar panel identify strengths and weaknesses of the strategies described in each presentation, providing invaluable advice to these budding entrepreneurs.

The organizers of the meeting, Joseph Wu, MD, PhD; Sanjay Malhotra, PhD; Kuldev Singh, MD; Mark Mercola, PhD; and Chaitan Khosla, PhD, are thrilled with the success of this gathering, and are already looking forward to the next iteration, which will be held April 22-23, 2019.
