Have you read any of of Zacharie Stichens books. He has done his own
interpretations of Sumerian stone tablets, and tells the story of early alian
influence in seeding this planet with humans. He has 4 or 5 books out, I
cannot find in in the stack in the corner, but recall one name "The stairway
to heaven". They are an interesting read.
