(Stillness in the Storm Editor) The below article presents information in a way that might lead some to conclude extraterrestrial DNA has been found in the human genome. But it would be more accurate to say that non-human DNA has been found, as in, 8% of the material comes from retroviruses that inserted DNA into the genome as a result of making contact with an organism that later contributed to the current stock of human beings.
Where this DNA came from is unknown, but what maybe more important is that it suggests the human body is a product of many different processes, not one single line of evolutionary development. Foodstuffs and exposure to other living things in the environment probably plays a significant role in how human beings evolved. As such, the idea that the food one eats alters genetic expression and makeup is something that remains obscure, yet has a valid basis in scientific study. Thus, this is an important mechanism to understand for releasing the effect of food on the body and how genetically modified organisms are a hazard to one’s health when engineers haphazardly splice in genetic material without conducting proper research.
Epigenetics is the study of how genes are expressed due to environmental triggers, either chemically in the form of food and toxin exposure or energetically in the form of electromagnetic interactions, some of which are due to emotional expression. Emotions have chemical and energetic components both of which alter genetic expression. But changing or adding genetic codes is a different thing altogether.
Vertical Transmission is the process of altering a genome because the mother is infected by a pathogen during pregnancy. And, of course, sexual reproduction, in general, is the merging of two separate genetic stocks into one organism that transmits new genes into a family tree or pedigree. But Horizontal Gene Transfer occurs when genetic material jumps from one organism to another by other than sexual or “vertical” means, acknowledged as playing an important role in the evolution of creatures today.
In the following study, retrovirus insertions were found, making up over 8% of the genetic material in human beings. Retroviruses insert RNA into the cell, which is copied to DNA forming what is called a provirus that remains in the host cell and can pass on to descendants in what are called endogenous retroviruses (ERVs). It is these ERVs that comprise 8% of the genetic material of non-human origin. But the original purpose or activity of these viruses has been altered over time, via deletion or recombination and have been bent to suit functions in concert with the host organism. In other words, in the past, viruses added genetic material to organisms and then that living thing used what was added in a way that changed it for the use of the host. But to be clear, not all such additions are arguably beneficial.
And this is where the notion of extraterrestrial alterations of the human organism can be discussed. But to be clear, the study cited below does not actually entertain this notion. However, readers can easily make the deduction that extraterrestrials could alter the human genome using retroviruses and foodstuffs (as the biotech industry has already done over the past 70 years), suggesting that the Sumerian culture that was introduced to modern grains may have had a non-human benefactor.
It has been recognized that comets and other extraterrestrial objects can (and do) contain material (in the form of microbes or viruses) that could influence the genomes of Earth, which through retroviral processes, alter the human organism. Whether or not these extraterrestrial sources of DNA came from intelligent civilizations or not remains a topic of speculation, but the possibility cannot be denied as of yet.
Some researchers and secret government whistleblowers contend that the human race might be a product of many genetic manipulations. One insider contends that 22 different genetic programs have influenced modern humans in the past, some of which are still being carried out by extraterrestrial groups to this day. While such claims are rarely taken seriously by mainstream science, there is no valid reason to dismiss them out of hand, especially given the findings of the study discussed below.
And more importantly, studies can be done to determine what effect these genes have as well as natural means of rebalancing the human organism so that the current destruction wreaking havoc in the form of GMO foods and the creation of thousands of new viruses from bio-warfare programs, can one day be alleviated. The SV40 retrovirus (sometimes called the cancer virus), infected millions of people in the mid 20th century who received polio vaccines. Descendants of those infected carry the virus in the form of a provirus, passing it on to new generations. The virus was created by firing high-intensity radiation onto cancerous kidney tissues with the purpose of generating new bio-ware weapons, according to Dr. Tent and others.
The notion that one’s genes are some kind of hardwired code that can only be changed during sexual reproduction or random mutation is completely invalidated by the science presented below.
The human being is much more dynamic than previously thought, able to alter genetic expression and coding in ways that society has yet to fully acknowledge or recognize, but nonetheless affects the whole population. As such methods can be developed to restore balance to the human organism, which is currently suffering an onslaught of genetic alterations from food, vaccines, and pathogens created by unethical and short-sighted biochemical researchers in the public and private sector—not to mention secret government projects that are specifically tasked with creating untold scores of new bio-warfare weapons.

According to a new study, eight percent of our DNA is ALIEN. In fact, it is made up of NON-HUMAN, viral fragments. The new study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The recent study revealed that there is literally non-human DNA residing in modern humans’ genome. This study comes after a froup of researchers from Tufts and the University of Michigan Medical School examined 2,500 people.
Experts discovered that our DNA is less human and that nineteen pieces of Ancient Viral DNA exist within our own genome.
Most strikingly, experts discovered the full genetic mockup for an entire virus within 2 percent of the people they examined. According to sciencedaily.com, whether or not the virus can be replicated or reproduced, isn’t yet known. But other studies of ancient virus DNA have shown it can affect the humans who carry it.
ScienceDaily reports that the study offers new insight on human endogenous retroviruses. HERV’s are actually antique diseases which possess eerily similar characteristics to human immunodeficiency virus, the precursor to AIDS.
Experts believe that this ‘Viral DNA0 has been passed down through thousands of generations of human beings. The study’s authors are still unsure whether the ancient strains of DNA could cause infections.
“This one looks like it is capable of making infectious virus, which would be very exciting if true, as it would allow us to study a viral epidemic that took place long ago,” says senior author and virologist John Coffin, Ph.D. of the Tufts University School of Medicine. “This research provides important information necessary for understanding how retroviruses and humans have evolved together in relatively recent times.”
“Many studies have tried to link these endogenous viral elements to cancer and other diseases, but a major difficulty has been that we haven’t actually found all of them yet,” says co-first author Zachary H. Williams, a Ph.D. student at the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at Tufts University in Boston. “A lot of the most interesting elements are only found in a small percentage of people, which means you have to screen a large number of people to find them.”
“This is a thrilling discovery,” says co-first author Julia Wildschutte, Ph.D., who began the work as a Ph.D. student in Coffin’s lab at Tufts. “It will open up many doors to research. What’s more, we have confirmed in this paper that we can use genomic data from multiple individuals compared to the reference human genome to detect new HERVs. But this has also shown us that some people carry insertions that we can’t map back to the reference.”
Excerpts from Study:
Endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) have contributed to more than 8% of the human genome. The majority of these elements lack function due to accumulated mutations or internal recombination resulting in a solitary (solo) LTR, although members of one group of human ERVs (HERVs), HERV-K, were recently active with members that remain nearly intact, a subset of which is present as insertionally polymorphic loci that include approximately full-length (2-LTR) and solo-LTR alleles in addition to the unoccupied site. Several 2-LTR insertions have intact reading frames in some or all genes that are expressed as functional proteins. These properties reflect the activity of HERV-K and suggest the existence of additional unique loci within humans. We sought to determine the extent to which other polymorphic insertions are present in humans, using sequenced genomes from the 1000 Genomes Project and a subset of the Human Genome Diversity Project panel. We report analysis of a total of 36 nonreference polymorphic HERV-K proviruses, including 19 newly reported loci, with insertion frequencies ranging from <0.0005 to >0.75 that varied by population. Targeted screening of individual loci identified three new unfixed 2-LTR proviruses within our set, including an intact provirus present at Xq21.33 in some individuals, with the potential for retained infectivity.
During a retrovirus infection, a DNA copy of the viral RNA genome is permanently integrated into the nuclear DNA of the host cell as a provirus. The provirus is flanked by short target site duplications (TSDs), and consists of an internal region encoding the genes for replication that is flanked by identical LTRs. Infection of cells contributing to the germ line may result in a provirus that is transmitted to progeny as an endogenous retrovirus (ERV), and may reach population fixation (1). Indeed, more than 8% of the human genome is recognizably of retroviral origin (2). The majority of human ERVs (HERVs) represent ancient events and lack function due to accumulated mutations or deletions, or from recombination leading to the formation of a solitary (solo) LTR; however, several HERVs have been coopted for physiological functions to the host (3).
The HERV-K (HML-2) proviruses (4–9), so-named for their use of a Lys tRNA primer and similarity to the mouse mammary tumor virus (human MMTV like) (10), represent an exception to the antiquity of most HERVs. HML-2 has contributed to at least 120 human-specific insertions, and population-based surveys indicate as many as 15 unfixed sites, including 11 loci with more or less full-length proviruses (5, 6, 8, 9). To distinguish the latter from recombinant solo-LTRs, we refer to these elements as “2-LTR” insertions throughout this study. The majority of these insertions are estimated to have occurred within the past ∼2 My, the youngest after the appearance of anatomically modern humans (4, 8, 11). Population modeling has implied a relatively constant rate of HML-2 accumulation since the Homo-Pan divergence (5, 12, 13). All known insertionally polymorphic HML- 2 proviruses have signatures of purifying selection, implying ongoing exogenous replication, and retain one or more ORFs (8, 13–15). HML-2 expression has been observed in tumorderived
tissues as well as normal placenta in the form of RNAs,
proteins, and noninfectious retrovirus-like particles (3, 16–19).
These unique properties raise the possibility that some HML-2
group members are still capable of replication by exogenous
transmission from rare intact proviruses, from the generation of
infectious recombinants via copackaged viral RNAs, or from
rare viruses still in circulation in some populations. A naturally
occurring infectious provirus has yet to be observed, although
the well-studied “K113” provirus, which is not in the GRCh37
(hg19) reference genome but maps to chr19:21,841,544, has
intact ORFs (9) and engineered recombinant HML-2 proviruses
are infectious in cell types, including human cells (20, 21).
The goal of this study was to enhance our understanding of
such elements by identifying and characterizing additional
polymorphic HML-2 insertions in the population.
