the truth about our origins,
This review is from: The Master of Speech (Paperback)Available for under $10 from the author's website (free sample chapters are offered), Dorey has written 3 books based on stunning details found within the complex Dogon stories, reaching back through time immemorial, about our true origins: "The Master of Speech", "The Nummo" and "Day of the Fish", in that order.
In the Dogon's ancient and secret religion, rarely revealed to outsiders: something went terribly wrong at the beginning of humanity. Humans were the result of a failed biological experiment.
In this book the author provides amazing information about our origin and how, since then, our true ancestry has been deliberately hidden from us. In her second book "The Nummo", Dorey focuses on Dogon symbols misused by secret societies and how the Dogon religion underlies many tales and myths throughout history. Her third book "Day of the Fish" links alien visitations to our original worldwide Goddess religion and to most of the world's major religions.
Here, Dorey explains that aliens known as the Nummo (or Nommo) came to earth long, long ago because their world was dying. There was no intelligent life on earth back then. The Nummo's androgynous, but mainly female, physical bodies were not suited to earth's conditions so they needed to create a hybrid. They combined their immortal DNA with that of mortal earth animals to form an intelligent, androgynous and immortal earth/nummo crossbreed into which they planned to incorporate their consciousness so they could settle here.
The Nummo had the highest of intentions but, as they then discovered, the animals of earth carry part of the eternal essence of the earth which was corrupted when the Nummo tried to force their own essence into earth/nummo hybrids. Instead of Nummo souls activating all hybrids, corrupted essence controlled some of these bodies.
The Nummo realized this experiment had gone badly wrong when one (or some) of the hybrids turned out to be both mortal and evil (somehow neither spiritually linked with them nor with the earth). The Nummo eventually understood that the immortality of their entire species had become endangered. (Actually their mistake was so complex it was connected to the very fabric of the universe.)
They left for another solar system where they created 8 new androgynous and immortal earth/nummo hybrids in experiment 2, each with different DNA combinations. This also went wrong, but this time because of an "unauthorized" love affair between the 2 most genetically mismatched hybrids, which led to all 8 fleeing to earth. Unfortunately, experiment 1 had ended in worldwide devastation here.
The Nummo sent a group back to earth and covered the planet with (essentially) "corrosive foam" (and this is the core of the flood myth) that cleaned up the ecological disaster in what was known as the "scrubbing". Also, through the most genetically perfect of these 8 hybrids, they regenerated humanity in experiment 3.
"The Word" in Dogon religion symbolizes DNA, which is a kind of language, so this ancestor of humanity is called the Master of Speech (but should have been "Mistress of Speech") and is essentially identifiable as Mitochondrial Eve. In the field of human genetics this Eve is the maternal ancestor of all living humans, traced back to Africa about 150,000 years ago.
To a certain extent, the mistakes were quasi-repaired. However, the Dogon identify the taking of earth's DNA by the Nummo as theft, or even rape, and we - the results of these 3 experiments - are still suffering from the psychic traumas, which included cataclysmic and worldwide destruction, involving fire and then flooding (of which there are ancient myths found all around the world).
The Nummo are expected to return again and the controllers here (the evil, psychopathic bloodline descended from Merovee, the child of the "unauthorized" mating) are terrified of this upcoming event, known by them simply as The Return. So terrified, that major media efforts - particularly Hollywood movies, using archetypes and symbolism that affect our subconscious - are currently underway to brainwash us all into believing that the Nummo are evil and demonic. This will not be difficult as the Nummo are ugly and green, with long fish-like or serpent-like tails. They look nothing at all like us.
Humans are separated from the eternal essence, severed from the truth of the universe. The "truth" we follow is manufactured to give some meaning to human life. The Return, expected by those in the know, is a continuation of the Nummo's work to right their wrongs.
As Dorey's books stress: the Nummo are actually purely spiritual, immortal beings who are very compassionate. Experiment 1 may have been their only hope for continuation as a species. They did everything carefully and lovingly. They went to great extremes to try to fix their mistakes despite the further, major setback in experiment 2.
Finally, in experiment 3, when the Master/Mistress of Speech (partly mortal, partly immortal) was said to be sacrificed to regenerate humanity, they had to remove some of their DNA from the hybrids. This took us back to earlier existence and made us mortal (and two genders), so that we could evolve into immortality and spirituality as we were originally meant to, had there never been any interference. (Since that time, so long ago, much else has happened.)
If you are the kind of person who requires evidence, please don't read this book as it will only anger you. (I wonder, though, whether you require proof of everything else you've been told? Have you seen a germ with your own eyes? Have you yourself checked incontrovertible evidence of traditional historical time lines fed to us at school? Just asking.)
If you are excited by SF/fantasy or conspiracy research and/or appreciate opportunities to perceive differently, you may find Dorey's books fascinating. Do these books reveal truth? In our current world where is the proof of anything that is beyond your ability to personally measure or check?
What is clear is Dorey's impressive translation of the Dogon symbolic religion into language we can understand and her connecting the prehistoric Dogon symbols to those of so many world religions, myths and stories.

Shannon Dorey's website has fascinating articles subsequent to her books, including this partial summary regarding the Nummo:
The Nummo came to the Earth initially because their world was dying. The Nummo were looking for a new planet to inhabit and when they first came to Earth, there wasn't any intelligent life here. They were immortal beings in the sense that when they lived and died, they could remember having lived before. Unlike humans who can't remember from one life time to the next, the Nummo were always conscious and present. They mistakenly assumed that as long as a creature wasn't intelligent that it didn't have a soul. They thought they could combine their DNA with the animals that exited on the Earth and move their souls into those created beings. What they discovered was that all animals have souls even those that are unevolved.
The experiment failed and a single sexed male being was born completely severed from the Nummos' spiritual essence. This individual, known as the Jackal in the Dogon religion, was born mortal and tied to the Earth with no knowledge of a previous existence. Although he was male, the Jackal symbolized all humans both male and female. He was the first human and signified our lost immortality. Nummo souls were lost to the Earth in the experiment and the Nummo became forever genetically twinned to humanity.
The Nummo were the mothers of the Earth and symbolized by the Sun in the Dogon religion, which was the female symbol. Although the alien Nummo were hideous looking by humans standards, they were benevolent beings. It is because of their strange appearance that the Roman Catholic Church and other patriarchal religions have been able to demonize them throughout history.
Nummo were amphibians with fish tails. When they moved on land, they stood upright on their tails making them appear like Serpents. They had a horn or a casque at the top of their heads. The Nummo's head was said to fit into the oblong hood in the same way that a stalk of corn fits into its husk. The Nummo also had green skin, red slanted eyes and webbed hands.
One strange aspect of the Nummo was the appearance of circular bones that protruded from their skin in place of joints at the wrists and elbows. Because the Nummo were identified with the sacred feminine, these bumps were mimicked by the Dogon women in wearing arm and wrist bracelets. Similar circular protrusions appear on the shoulders and elbows of Ur figurines that were found in southern Iraq, from a prehistoric village of the Ubaid culture which dates from 5000-4000 BCE. These circular markings like bumps are an unusual aspect of these statues. Some Ur figurines are depicted with fishtails. They all seem to have lines on their bellies. The Nummo had these same lines that were mimicked by the Dogon women in the form of tattoos on their bellies that stretched from below the breasts to the abdomen. Many Ur figurines seem half-human and half-reptilian and the appliqué pieces at the shoulders could have been meant to signify scales.
The Nummo also had a circular bone at the end of their tails and this was likewise mimicked by the Dogon women who wore a bracelet on their right ankle. Because the Nummo only had a tail and didn't have two legs like humans they were perceived as having only one leg. The Nummo's leg was always identified with the right leg. Everything symbolizing the Nummo appeared on the right side of the Dogon sanctuary and everything symbolizing the male Jackal, the evil in the religion, always appeared on the left.
My research shows that the Celtic pagan religion is the same religion that was practised by the Dogon people. The Dogon religion, which was still being practised in its oral form in the 1930s, was so ancient that the Nummo were still symbolized by the divine feminine and the Sun. The Jackal, who represented the evil in the Dogon religion, was still identified with males and the moon. The Jackal, who was described as having two serpent legs, differed in appearance from the Nummo who only had a fish tail. In the Jewish religion Yahweh was originally a male moon god.
The first experiment that was associated with the Jackal was known as the "first word." The word symbolized the experiment because it was only after the Earth animals' DNA was combined with the Nummo's DNA that the animals were able to speak. The ten fibres brought down from the Nummos' world were described as a fibrous skirt placed over the Earth's genitalia. To the Dogons this was why "to be naked meant to be speechless." The "word" as a symbol for DNA is also significant because it relates to the fact that we use words to define things. A dog is partly defined by the letters, D, O, and G. A dolphin is defined by the letters, D, O, L, P, H, I, N. The letters spell different words, but they all come from the same alphabet. Likewise, different variations of DNA produce different animals, plants, and humans. They are all different, but they are connected by the fact that they derive from the same basic DNA. A genome is the entire genetic complement of a living organism. After the second experiment and the regeneration, the Jackal's word was never to be repeated on Earth again. This further associates him with the unspoken name of the god of Judaism.
The Dogon believed the alien Nummo would one day return to Earth. The day of the Nummos' return was known to the Dogon as the "Day of the Fish." The belief in the return of the Nummo is what Christians refer to as the Second Coming of Christ. Likewise, the British believed that King Arthur was immortal and would one day return to Britain. The Jews have also been awaiting their Messiah. The day of the Nummos' return was considered a positive event in the Dogon religion.
Some people believe that the Nummo may return in our lifetime. Demonizing them in movies like Prometheus will only create fear in the hearts of individuals who don't know anything about the Nummo. This could turn what should be a celebrated reunion, into a disaster - presumably exactly what was intended by making this film?
