"Extant" And Other Conceptions and Bloodlines

Thursday July 10, 2014

We didn't have a Steven Spielberg alien blockbuster this summer, plummeting box office sales, but last night he brought another alien miniseries to TV - and it did not disappoint. This was Spielberg's first alien miniseries since Taken in 2002.

In Extant Holly Berry stars as astronaut Molly Woods who returns from a 13-month solo mission in space, with missing time and finds herself knocked up !! In Taken - human-alien hybrid Lisa Clarke is taken by aliens and gets pregnant with a daughter named Allie - the final product of a biogenetic experiment on Earth. How Lisa became impregnated remains a mystery to her until Allie's father, Charlie Keys, shows up and they undergo hypnosis. Great visual affects of Allie's creation.

"Extant" takes place in a futuristic world with driverless cars, high-tech trash cubes and some really cool stuff. Molly Woods has been unable to conceive - her son an android created by her husband through a cutting-edge process known as humanichs. One is left to wonder about her unborn baby as she meets an alien while on the space station - who looks like her deceased lover and something apparently happens during her 3 hours of mission time.

Let's segue to X-Files, another favorite that impacted the consciousness hologram. Scully was told she was infertile yet mysteriously became pregnant with a son named William who had magical powers - or at least telekinetic abilities. The cause of her pregnancy was never formally revealed however the most probable of theories is that Mulder fathered the child ... though one senses alien biogenetic manipulation along the way. It must be fun to have a baby that is "the next step" in the evolutionary scale. Let's hope X-Files picks up with William in a future film.

Life is about biogenetic experiments and bloodlines.

David Icke and other researchers believe royal bloodlines descend from reptilians.

The world remembers the day Prince George was born .. minutes before the sun moved into Leo (July 22, 2013). I loved following George's adventures particularly his trip to Australia, and the day he walked off at 10 months old - reminding me of my children who walked early. Life gets easier when a baby stops crawling and starts to walk - though that does present a whole new set of issues. One of the things I believe, is that if you want a child to walk early, buy them a walker. They quickly appreciate the fact that they can stand on their own ... then taking a few steps comes right after. Crawling is part of physical development but walking allows a child far more interesting experiences. Most children get tired of crawling, pulling themselves up on furniture and attempting to walk. This almost reads like a metaphor of human evolution.
