I have always wanted to post this thread topic. And after the other worldly shots of Peter A. Reiserer appeared in a recent issue of Scuba Diver Australasia, I thought it was time.

I have had a long time interest in UFO's, and indeed, have been abducted, experienced missing time, and have(had) alien hybrid children up there. For me, ET's are real, nearby, and not introducing themselves at this time because of the non-interference policy, similar to 'Prime Directive' of Star Trek. First contact and Disclosure might not be that far off.

I have had visions of a far off water world in the Pleiadian system, a world almost completely covered by tropical water and reefs. If we look a little closer to home, the planet Mars has many anomalies, one of which seems to be evidence of a vast ocean in the distant past. Indeed, there is plant life and what look to be lakes on the surface of Mars. Globe hopping once more, I look to the writings of Alex Collier, an Andromedan contactee, who stated that there are vast lakes under the surface of the moon, and indeed, that the moon itself is a manufactured planetoid.

There are many stories, also, of an Inner Earth with a central sun, rivers, lakes, mountains, and a vast inner ocean. One witness of this was Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd in 1947. Byrd flew to the north pole and instead of flying over the pole, entered Inner Earth. Olaf Jansen, a Norwegian, sailed into the Inner Earth, as described in his book 'The Smoky God'.

I would suggest that sometime within the next decade, we will make the collective leap into space and inner Earth and new frontiers will open up. One of these will be oceans and lakes of vastly different qualities, inhabited by unimaginable creatures and corals. And many of us will have the opportunity to take to the waters.

I post this here because Wetpixel is cutting edge in many ways, two of which are the intellect of its members and the willingness to embrace any new frontiers, be they technological or physical.

The best that can happen to those "other worlds" is not being discovered by humans...

Perhaps you are right, David.

At this stage in our evolution we are so ready to trash our environment, so immature in our approach to long term sustainability of our lives and culture and indeed, of Mother Earth herself. First, we should look to the cleaning up of our act here on Earth, which I believe is what you alluded to. Yet, I do believe, that as divers we see the mess others have made, we love the sharks that others despise and fear, we have an empathy with the ocean and her creatures that most simply do not understand. If any class of people were ready to take that next step, perhaps it would be us.

Underwater photography is a rational pursuit, and mental illness one reason for failing a diving medical.

Hi John. Maybe. I might have a shoot with a beautiful model Sunday afternoon, depending upon the availability of an MUA and whether she would be able to do her own makeup if need be. So, waiting for her to get back to me at this stage. It's certainly going to be nice weather this afternoon.

The aliens are already in our ocean:

Deciding to do it, spending the money and abandoning your family on shore: irrational.

Working with the diving and photographic technology: rational.

Images: priceless!

I love the original post, how refreshing! My mind might be a little too narrow to believe in those other worlds, but the images created in my mind while reading the post are beautiful and inspirational. Thanks SoulDiver!

My state of mental health has been questioned before. There was a particularly difficult phase in my life where I was attempting to come to terms with my visions of my alien children. I even painted them on the shed wall, to get the images out of my head. Needless to say, this was not received well. My mother and eldest sister came to the conclusion that I needed 'Help'. They sent for a shrink to come and see me as a preliminary step to having me committed in a mental institution. It was only by running away and sleeping in a beach hut that I managed to avoid that particular fate. That is only one of a number of times in my life where I have been on the very brink of sanity. I would not wish my life or ET experiences on my worst enemy.

Nanu Nanu! Instantly coming to mind is the doco that details Robin Williams' (Mork from Ork) interactions with dolphins in the wild. This was obviously a profound experience that touched him on a very deep level.

Over at Wikipedia the Mars Ocean Hypothesis is discussed with some credibility. www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_ocean_hypothesis

I don't know if many of you have seen the fossilised crinoid photos disclosed by Richard Hoagland. Very interesting. A collector of marine fossils for 34 years identified it as an early crinoid. www.enterprisemission.com/_articles/03-08-2004/crinoid_cover-up.htm I have browsed other forums on the web discussing this fossil and no alternative theory of any credibility has been proposed.

Interestingly, when searching for 'Mars, water' I came across an article published just today in which NASA confirms that flowing water was present on at least one part of Mars for thousands or millions of years. William Dietrich, a professor of geomorphology and member of the Curiosity imaging science team, said that it was "the first time we are actually seeing water transported gravel on Mars".

Thanks, Marjo, your support means a lot to me.

Now, what we really want to know is if there is an unidentified commensal shrimp living on that crinoid or if it is just a typical Periclimenes amboinensis one!!! Posted Image

Wouldn't it be amazing to dive in an another planet's ocean? Wow sets the imagination off for sure!
