Host Janet Kira Lessin interviewed Aquarian Radio co-host Dr. Sasha (Alex) Lessin about his life and how his focus during the course of his life became peace, anthropology, psychology and ancient aliens.
Dr. Lessin, a young anthropology grad student, was in the elevator with Margaret Mead, attending the American Anthropological Association Annual Conference, November 22, 1963, when they learned that President Kennedy had been shot. Dr. Mead, using a big, gnarly stick as a crutch, walked out to all assembled and said, “We must go on. Kennedy would have wanted us to carry on.”
Sasha’s father read him “The Outline of History” by H. G. Wells instead of fairy tales as his bedtime story. Sasha’s father, Irving Lessin, a very successful attorney in Torrence, CA, was his greatest influence. He told his wife, Irma, “May all our children grow up to be radio announcers”. How prophetic.
Growing up during the cold war when children were subjected to mock air raids and nuclear holocaust propaganda, they were instructed to “duck under their desks” (as if that would help them survive an atomic attack) when sirens alarmed.
Sasha became a peace advocate. He dedicated himself to healing the planet. He immersed himself in his studies, mastering all he could, especially everything he could learn about psychology and anthropology. His thirst for knowledge and understanding has never been quenched. To this day, he remains a scholar and teaches what he learns, forever uncovering the mystery, solutions to what ails this world and will make it a better place for all life, all beings, all times.
We also discussed Ooparts (out of place artifacts) and their relationship with ancient aliens.
The following is from the forward to Anunnaki: Gods No More
The giant gods of the ancient world and the successors they choose created mind-sets that shackle us to short desperate lives. These so-called gods rocketed to Earth from a planet they called Nibiru. Nibirans stand way taller—8-12 feet tall and live way longer—hundreds of thousands years– than we. These ETs from Nibiru said they bred us as short term slaves and soldiers. We killed in their names: Allah (= Sumerian, Marduk or Nannar), Yahweh (sometimes = Enlil, at times Adad or even Enki), Ishtar (Inanna)–mining expedition personnel all, all Nibirans. We Earthlings are one species, designed to serve in mines, armies, businesses, schools, governments, farms, factories, and building projects for ETs and the “royal” lines of ever-murderous hybrid rulers they begat.
The alternative history Zecharia Sitchin, Neal Freer, Lloyd Pye, Michael Tellinger, Andy Lloyd, Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson articulate about our origins and development shatter the fetters of the lies with the false gods and their hybrid elite keep us in war, greed, poverty, short lives. Lies of church and state hide hoard information, necessities and survival plans as Earth faces dangers from space.
We’ll survive when we acknowledge our kinship with all Earth’s people. We all descended from the same ancestors, ancestors from two different planets. Accept our hybrid origins and nullify rule of the elite the Nibirans imposed on us. Instead, cooperate with all people. Drop the god-scripted hate for others. We survive together when we jointly plan for the periodic return of Nibiru, its astronauts, and the debris that lurks at its Lagrange point, 180 degrees from Nibiru on its orbit around its subdwarf primary star, Nemesis.
When I studied for my doctorate in anthropology at U.C.L.A. in the 60s, my professors,doing the best they could with the data they had then, taught that gradual physical then socio-cultural evolution caused all human development.
The physical anthropologists at UCLA said a Miocene or Pliocene anthropoid primate evolved into a hominid, Homo Erectus, which in turn had evolved from simpler primates over millions of years. My anthropology teachers said Homo Sapiens–that’s us–gradually evolved from Homo Erectus [Clark, D., W., 1959, History of the Primates:178].
The sociocultural anthropologists said we evolved with technology we ourselves developed. W we proliferated, they thought, as we planted and bred cereals from local grains, tamed indigenous wild sheep, goats, cattle, donkeys and horses, invented tools and machines, developed medicine, constructed irrigation and transportation systems, built cities and developed ever-more effective mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, metallurgy, architecture and engineering.
Modern information proves the anthropologists wrong about our physical evolution. We didn’t evolve incrementally from simpler primates on Earth. We’ve found no gradually intermediate skeletons of primates that link modern humans from tarsier-like ancestors from which Twentieth Century anthropologists thought we evolved. Several advanced homininoids co-existed with Erectus. Erectus and its contemporaries may have been survivors of astronomically-caused extinction events during human settlement on Earth long before 400,000 years ago when the scientist Enki and crews of seven – twelve foot tall Homo Sapiens colonized Earth from Nibiru. Or, as Pye asserts, Erectus and all the hominoids on Earth may have been placed on Earth be terraformers, and thes hominoids, some of whose genes we carry, may still roam the hinterlands of our civilization as the Sasquash, or modern Neanderthal. Reject the view that we’re entirely indigenous and evolved only from simpler forms native to this planet.
Reject also anthropologists’ old view that the technologies we invented caused our social evolution. Accept instead the overwhelming evidence this book summarizes, evidence that we developed socially when the ETs from Nibiru gave us advanced technologies. 60s anthropologists had noted mysterious uplevelings of civilizations every 3,600 years or so when Nibiru neared Earth, improvements ancient inhabitants of Iraq–then called Sumer–wrote that the Nibiran gods gave them. Anthropologists of the 60s believed these gods imaginary.
My Chairman at U.C.L.A. said technological innovations Sumerians themselves developed explained social evolution. Their innovations, he said, allowed more population growth, sedentariness, material goods, specialization and leisure, all of which caused social evolution. Neither he nor I ever considered the “gods” as real–let alone the source of cultural evolution. The Sumerians wrote that the “gods” gave them the genes, inventions, crops and livestock that let them increase their numbers and master the environment. In the thrall of evolutionary anti-creationism, we dismissed what Mesopotamians, Egyptians, Indians, Norse, Chinese, Tibetan, Central and South Americans said about gods who rode Celestial Chariots, threw thunderbolts and periodically boosted our civilizations with crops, herds, devices, laws and knowledge. [Goldschmidt, W., 1959, Man’s Way: 110 -117]
Sociologist C. W. Mills showed how power elites control Earth and collaborate to perpetuate competition and war. These elites descended from the bloodline of Enki whom Sumerians said was a god, albeit a flesh-and blood god. 300,000 years ago, Enki engineered his genes with those of Neanderthal or Erectus to breed goldmining slaves.
13,000 years ago, Enki fathered Ziasudra (Noah in The Bible), ancestor of the elite that to this day rule Earth. The elite still employ a master-slave, god-worshiper code (with them in master status and we in slave–albeit economic slave–status) to run humanity. Ziasudra’s descendants–today’s elite–passed their mandate to dictate “from Sumer through Egypt to Israel through David and the messiahs, fostered by the Essene communities in Canaan.
“Jesus was an Essene as was his wife, Mary Magdalene, information the Catholic Church suppressed. Catholics instead perpetuated slave-code fear and subservience. They hid the truth of our hybridization and persecuted and brutalized the human-centered strain of the bloodline [that’s most of us].” [Gardiner, L., 2000, Bloodline of the Holy Grail; quote from Freer, 2004, Sapiens Rising]
In 2000, Cody and Robin Johnson brought me to a seminar led by Sumerian scholar, Zecharia Sitchin. Sitchin displayed evidence in clay and stone of astronomical, geological and biological knowledge Sumerians said gods gave them, knowledge our scientists only verified many millenia later. Sitchin disproved both the theistic creationism and academic evolutionary dogma the elite perpetrated. He solved the mysteries of missing hominid links and the periodic leaps in our social and industrial evolution. No missing physical links existed because we emerged suddenly, when Enki and his cohorts blended their genome and Erectus’. We got stronger tools and weapons when a Sumerian “god” showed the Hittites how to mine and refine iron.
Sitchin’s work breaks the elite’s stranglehold on us. I attended Sitchin seminars and read everything he, Tellinger, Lloyd, Pye, Cremo and other revisionists wrote. Thanks to these revisionists, we can revise our dismissal of “myths” as superstition. Sumerians labeled Nibirans’ aircraft, submarines, helicopters, spaceships, weapons and computers with their own metaphors or words the Nibirans taught them as skyships, celestial chariots, arks, whirlbirds, brilliances, and MEs. Sumerian scribes recorded the history and science the Nibirans taught them. We can now evaluate what these ETs said and not dismiss tales of gods as superstitious myth.
“Sitchin advanced a coherent paradigm of our genesis to rewrite our beginnings and astronomically, evolutionarily, paleontologically, archaeologically and redefine ourselves. His thesis corrects creationism, redefines Darwinism. Sitchin read Sumerian as well as Hebrew, was steeped in the history and had material from the Middle East rediscovered only last one hundred and fifty years.” [Freer, N., 2004, Sapiens Arising]
In our book, Anunnaki: Gods No More, wife Janet and I review our ancient history and sense of who we are, how we got here, and how the new paradigm of Earthlings’ unique two-race genetics frees us from the model the ETs imposed on us. The new view frees us the physical and economic slavery, hierarchic obsession, derogation of women, gold lust, antagonistic religions and nations the Nibirans and the hybrid elite they created dictated.
Free of short, desperate lives, we’ll create our future. We shall activate our latent Anunnaki genes, scientifically improve our own genome and take our place in the civilization of the galaxy.
