Another twist in the Earth saga August 22, 2015

In another twist to the recent revelations relating to planet Earth, the conglomerate Mining Organics has selectively released the results of its decade-long study on the mass extinction happening on Earth.

Dr. Prof. Klevens, the head of the team of scientists believes that their tests clearly indicate that the current spurt in the intelligence of H. Sapiens has nothing to do with the Intelligence Acceleration Program which has been getting the wrong end of the stick recently. “We see no sign of the genetic changes purportedly made by the IAP in the current population”, he said. Prof. Klevens further added that given the findings, there is no need to proceed with any “corrective” actions.

The findings suggest that the genetic modifications made to improve brain function also resulted in fertility issues and hence the modifications did not get passed on to future generations.
Funnily, the Department for Passive Preservation of Other Worlds (DPPOW), which has never seen eye to eye with Mining Organics, seems to have found an unlikely ally in supporting the non-interference policy. However, any such melding of minds is bound to be short-lived as the DPPOW has already started demanding to know the details of how the study has been conducted.

cartoon-drawings-abducted-by-alien-21371910-1While Mining Organics has long held the mining rights in Sector S, current policies prohibit them from most activities on Class 4 planets such as Earth. So it will be interesting to see how they acquired the data they needed for their tests without breaking any of the existing laws. If there has been any abducting or probing of H. Sapiens as part of the data gathering exercise, there will likely be hell to pay for Mining Organics and for Dr. Klevens personally.

The timing of the release of these results suggest that Mining Organics is desperate to restart their mining activities on Earth which has been stalled since stardate 74257.12 due to the emergence of precursors of intelligence on Earth. If the mass extinctions continue unabated, or a dirty nuclear war erupts between different factions, then a valuable source of hydrocarbons critical to our future will be lost for ever.

Mining Organic’s recent petition to reclassify Earth into a class 5 planet, in view of the deteriorating situation on Earth, has also not garnered sufficient support from within the current regime.

The senate sessions beginning shortly are likely to take up the Earth issues on high priority.  More clarity expected at that time.


Breaking news – Secret rectification plans leaked August 20, 2015

Klodian Times. Stardate: 74357.72

In a startling revelation, the underground hacker organization UniSieve has released top-secret classified documents describing detailed plans to “rectify” the situation on planet earth.

Reader518_Breaking_Newss may recall, a few months ago the Department for Passive Preservation of Other Worlds (DPPOW) had published a report on the deteriorating situation on planet earth, a class 4 life bearing planet in sector S of the Kremolan quarter. The DPPOW, in its report had clearly held the current regime and its ill-conceived Intelligent Acceleration Program (IAP) responsible for the sudden mass extinction being witnessed there right now.

The current regime had subsequently published a rejoinder to the effect that they would refrain from any “corrective” action, in line with the non-interference policy that has been in place for centuries.

However, the leaked documents clearly show that the current regime has put fairly advanced plans in place to try and reverse the adverse effects of IAP.

Excerpts from the documents below:

“On critical evaluation of the behaviour of the mammal Homo Sapiens, it is clear that uncontrolled reproduction and rampant overuse of natural resources is posing the biggest threat to the overall health of the planet. It is believed that a well thought out culling exercise could quickly put the planet back on the path of recovery without reversing the  tremendous strides taken by H. sapiens in the area of science and technology”.

The document then goes into a detailed highly scientific explanation as to which strains and sub-strains of H.sapiens could be culled and which ones should be preserved.

“In summary, of the many strains, the Scandinavian strain, especially those in Denmark and Norway, exhibit the most desirable traits necessary for true intelligence to emerge. This strain, though violent in the recent past, has since shown signs of superior intelligence (compared to other strains), belief in equality and the required mindset for sustainable growth”.

To read the detailed reasoning against the preservation of other strains, you can go here.

Finally, the report clearly outlines the culling method to be used.

“In order to make the whole process appear natural and to prevent exposure of our existence, it is best that a native bio-agent be modified to affect all those containing a specific genetic sequence that is found in all strains except the Scandinavians. Modifying it to become airborne and more virulent will dramatically increase the pace of the culling process and reduce the suffering of the culled strains. Introduction of a time based sterility gene will ensure that the  virus itself will disappear within 4 Earth weeks from the time of release”.

Dr. Sjoal of DPPOW could not be reached for his comments.

img_3490In a scathing indictment of the current regime, the department for passive preservation of other worlds (DPPOW) has squarely blamed the much acclaimed intelligence acceleration program (IAP) for the dramatic deterioration in the situation on planet earth.

During the recently concluded convention on frontiers of exploration, Dr. Sjoal the Director of DPPOW stated that the planet earth, discovered 70,000 years ago in sector S of the Kremolan quarter – at one time, the most promising candidate for the emergence of intelligence – has regressed dramatically over the last 7000 years. “The start of the regression coincides with the start of the ill-conceived intelligence acceleration program that experimented with genetic modification of one species of terrestrial mammal, namely Homo Sapiens”, he said.

Though there have been grumblings about this botched program for some time, this is the first time an official department has stated its opinion in such unequivocal terms.

Several studies support Dr. Sjoal. Many recent studies show that Homo sapiens have in the last 4000 years begun acting like an invasive alien species in their own world resulting in the decimation of the biodiversity on Earth. The dramatic difference in the speed of evolution of H. Sapiens (induced by the IAP) in comparison to the rest of the world, has been found to be the primary reason for an potentially intelligent lifeform’s transformation into a cancerous one.

Some of the elder Klodians will remember the heated debates before the Intelligence acceleration program was started on Earth. Finally, the allure of having another intelligent lifeform to communicate and grow with proved too tempting and despite misgivings among the scientific community, the project got the go ahead.

“If we had left the planet as it was, may be in another 100,000 years we would have had a truly intelligent neighbour, but now we may never have such a neighbour”, was the general lament from many quarters.

While there has been talk of remedial action of late, it appears that the DPPOW has strongly recommended against any such move. The current regime, worried about making a mistake again, seems to be more than willing to toe that line this time around. So, for now, the future of H.sapiens appears to be rather bleak.
