Dude and I have spoken extensively about planet forming and the extraterrestrial creation of life. The following is an extract from Dude’s answer to question 18 in the interview book. A more elaborate answer (more detail on what is outlined in how panspermia works 1-7 below) will be in the conversation book. While I have corrected obvious typos I haven’t fully proof read this extract. Any errors are mine alone. See what you make of it !
PS. Dude refers to the process he describes not as Panspermia but as Bioshifting – which was a word he felt was easier for us to understand.
Bright : Dude it’s been a while since we spoke and before we get back to the original questions, I’d like to ask you if you could please clarify where these microbial communities in space originate from ? Is it from previous planets that have existed ? Have they been engineered ? Are certain regions of space seeded with microbes ? Are there seed banks as such ? Is it a combination of possibilities or is there another explanation ? Many people would see what we’ve been talking about as a kind of panspermia but I’m wondering if there is a bigger picture here. Perhaps you could elaborate on that ?
Dude : OK a good question. Now when you think about these things – what your people have identified as panspermia, what do you think of – in terms of how it works ?
B : I guess I think of clouds of microbes in space and microbes on asteroids and other celestial bodies / planetoids etc. and I think of some ET races deliberately targeting regions of space and particular planets with microbial communities. Implanting life so to speak. That’s what I think of.
B : D : OK, so what you’ve said is reasonable. It’s a little bit like how it works. How about I give you a more detailed explanation and then you’ll understand where these microbial communities originate from.
OK. Go for it !
D : Alright. Now when you think of microbes you have a fairly limited view of what microbes are. You yourself personally know about bacteria and viruses and other small life forms such as protozoans and amoebas. You’ll remember from your studies of bacteriology that there are several major divisions and some of these are more modern and some of them are considered to be ancient. You have some idea – you personally and your people, of how diverse microbes are – particularly bacteria and viruses. But you don’t have much of an understanding or appreciation of this diversity. You have a set way of looking at bacteria and other microbes. You look at basic phenotype characteristics and try and match them against their genetics and sometimes (as you found) they turn out to be similar and sometimes they don’t. So as you yourself concluded, there is both a kind of divergent and a kind of convergent evolution among bacteria. The same features are prevalent across the entire spectrum of life – both here and throughout the cosmos. So this feature of how things diversify and how they can become similar in one area but not in another is a common quality, a common feature of all life. Now in regard to how this dispersal or divergence or how would you say, radiation of microbial life through space occurs, it is necessary for you to appreciate the diversity of microbial life everywhere in the cosmos. Microbes are capable of growing in almost all kinds of conditions – in almost absolute zero and in extremes of heat – some even up to approximately 5,500 degrees C. So there is an absolute abundance of incredibly different microbes growing under all kinds of conditions. Now some of them would be what you recognised as microbes that you have on Earth – viruses, bacteria, things that are smaller than viruses that you don’t yet really consider to be life forms, fungi, amoebas, protozoans and so on. Some of them are represented by these groups. And some of them are very similar to what you have on Earth. But some of them are not and are incredibly different. Then there are microbes that are nothing like any of the groups that you have on Earth. They fall outside of anything that you know.
B : Can I just ask, how much of the microbial life in space could be classified under the groups we have on Earth and how much of the microbial life on other planets could be classified under the groups we have on Earth ? Things that are basically similar. Just rough percentages.
D : Alright in regard to space, what is similar in terms of classifications – in total about 6-7 % and on planets – in total about 3-4 %.
B : So basically from those numbers you’re suggesting that the types of microbes that exist elsewhere are incredibly different to anything we actually know ?
D : Yes.
B : Why more similarity with space microbes ?
D : Alright simple. In space there is more opportunity for things to remain unchanged and remain in a relative dormant state. On planets local conditions force changes to happen at the genetic and phenotypic level.
Now in regard to the microbes that exist in space, many of them are there because there was a prior local state that encouraged their proliferation. So what do I mean by that ? OK. Several possibilities exist. First, there may have been a planet or what you consider to be a moon. What ever there was was destroyed or transformed and the microbes – some of them survived. They may or may not now exist in a dormant state. In addition it is possible that the previous state included any number of transitionary states. When I say transition – I mean it wasn’t a natural state for the microbes. It was one in which they were moving from one reasonable stable state to another. So sometimes microbial communities exist in particular cold regions of space, where they are kept reasonable inert and stable, because they have been ejected from material that has been itself ejected from the surface or the interior of a planet. The microbes are no longer on any kind of stable home. They are then free form so to speak – floating on particular celestial currents. Some of them maybe picked up by the movements of planets or planetoids or moons through their own orbit through that region of space. So the microbe picks up a new home – a stable home, relative to drifting around through space. Of course some maybe picked up by other moving bodies passing through those regions of space. Now there are also different kinds of energetic ejections from both planets and their moons or some planetoids and solar bodies, in which the microbes maybe carried to a new home. They can reside for long periods of time in these ejections – depending on their type and they can also be carried great distances onto the surface of another body. Mostly a more stable body but sometimes onto another moving body – such as an asteroid. So for the most party these transitionary states are something that any microbial community that has been ejected from the surface of a planet or other body will endure. These can be long lasting or briefer – there are many variations.
Alright, so for the most part microbes come and go and proliferate wherever opportunity arises. Sometimes it is in space – although that is often unlikely with the extremes of radiation and temperature but it can happen with some microbes. Sometimes it is on a temporary body and sometimes it is on a permanent home. Where ever they find themselves they will adapt – either by becoming dormant or becoming active. Now these natural processes are widespread throughout the entire cosmos. There are regions that are more supportive of microbial communities and regions that are less supportive of microbial communities. There are even regions that are so thick with particular microbial communities that they are harvested for their microbial life, which is then used in all manner of ways to both seeds planets, planetoids, moons, other celestial bodies and space.
Now coming back to how it’s done. There are two main approaches for what you consider to be a type of panspermia. You have to bear in mind that the human definition is a fairly limited one. So let me elaborate on how things work.
B : Can you give me a better view of panspermia that goes beyond the human one then ?
D : Yes, I will. OK so the first approach is to look at what’s natural – that is where do we find different communities of particularity microbes and to map those. Now understand that this is always in flux. So what was a stable region one day with particularity groups of microbes in it, is next day different and this is true for every region. Things change. But we can say that there are general similarities and we work on those as well. So we generate these maps of different microbial communities for all regions of space and all known bodies that exist in space. So we have these maps of what we consider to be a natural distribution of different microbial communities. That is something that we look at whenever we are travelling or doing particular work in a particular region related to the microbial aspects of that world or space. Now in addition there are different groups who are developing different microbial life forms and these are created in different ways. Some of them are created from the raw genetic material so to speak and some of them are created from the energetic patterns that proceed the genetic material – what you have called light templates – so called light forms. For the most part – not in it’s entirety – the different collectives have maps of the distribution of these different microbes and microbial communities – where they were created, where they are stored, where they are grown and where they are traded and where they are distributed. So we know which particular regions of space they inhabit and which particular celestial bodies they inhabit. In addition we are constantly mapping how they are changing as a result of different conditions and how they are proliferating and how some of them are hybridising with pre-existing life forms – both in space and on celestial bodies. So we have these different maps of microbial communities. 3 different types of maps and they have different specialisations or refinements in the types of details within each one of them. So we know what we can expect to find in particular regions of space.
So for the most part we have a fairly accurate sense of what is where and in what populations. We also have a good sense of what celestial bodies are coming in contact the different microbial communities that exist on other celestial bodies and in space.
So what happens ? How does panspermia actually work ? I’m going to give you seven different ways in which it occurs and each one can be elaborated upon if that is what you wish. But for now I’ll keep it simple. Alright 1-7.
1. Microbes that are naturally distributed through space come in contact with some other celestial body. They may or may not proliferate on that said celestial body.
2. Microbes upon a celestial body come in contact with another celestial body. They may or may not proliferate on that said celestial body.
3. Microbes that come in contact with another celestial body are then ejected into space through impact or planetary or other body explosion. These are then adrift on celestial currents or come in contact with other celestial bodies.
4. Some of the microbes that exist in a transitionary state are deposited on another temporary body and these may continue to inoculate other temporary bodies or inoculate a stable and permanent home.
5. Regions of space are artificially inoculated with the intention that they in turn inoculate other celestial bodies or move on particular celestial currents towards planet forming regions or other regions favourable towards the conditions for life sustaining activities.
6. Different celestial bodies are impregnated with other forms of life that then allow for the successful inoculation of new microbial communities.
7. What you would consider to be virgin or purified celestial bodies are inoculated with microbial communities – as required, for the creation of life sustaining environments or for the creation of sustainable environments for the creation of new life forms.
