Extraterrestrial Intervention: The Quran Connection


The reasons for suspecting that the Quran could be of extraterrestrial authorship extend beyond the contents of that book and beyond the highly unusual method of its delivery to Muhammad. The life of Muhammad (570 CE to 632 CE) corresponds well with dates that the archaeologists have given us for construction of the Nazca Lines and for the cultural explosion in Tiwanaku. Moreover, the Spanish historian Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa, in his History of the Incas (1572), gives us the time frame 565 CE to 665 CE (the reign of the first Inca king) for appearances of their sacred god Inti, described as capable of flying through the air and capable of predicting the future.

In view of a strong correlation in timing between the construction of the Nazca Lines in Peru and Muhammad's encounter with the archangel Gabriel in Arabia, it may be worthwhile to consider the possibility that the alien astronaut of the Andes wrote the Quran (Koran) and then fabricated the archangel Gabriel to deliver it to Muhammad. Of course, many other explanations are possible, such as:

a) Allah wrote the Quran and then enticed the archangel Gabriel to verbally transmit it to illiterate Muhammad over the course of two decades. No one can deny the right of people to believe what they wish.

b) Muhammad was merely hallucinating and the archangel never appeared. However, the Quran was certainly no hallucination, and it is doubtful that Muhammad could have constantly deceived his followers into believing this story – ongoing for two decades – if in fact it was utterly baseless.

c) Muhammad himself concocted the Quran and then claimed it was transmitted to him by Gabriel. However, Muslim scholars make a good point when they say that the Quran is so magnificent – both linguistically and thematically – that it is doubtful that the entire Arab nation working in collaboration could have produced such a book in the seventh century.

This leaves us with either Allah or the alien astronaut as the best explanation, and we have to look elsewhere for information that could help resolve the issue in favor of one or the other.

I never had any special interest in Muhammad and it was purely by accident that I encountered him in my investigations. At the time, I was only probing into the origins of a book referred to as the Revelations of Elijah (also known as the book of revelations, the heavenly book, the book of light, the Cabala and perhaps a few other names), a clandestine text belonging to a group of medieval mystics known as the Cabala (transferring the name of the book to the entire sect though such has never been unambiguously recorded). Unlike the Muslims, the cabalists never wrote clear histories of anything; their abundant literature was entirely abstruse. Their first fundamental text was the Sefer Yetzirah (the Book of Creation, also known as the Book of Abraham). Some scholars say it was written in the second century and others say it first appeared in the ninth century. Their second fundamental text was the Sefer ha-Bahir (the Book of Brightness). Some scholars say it was written in France in the 12th century and others say that parts of it were written in Babylonia many centuries earlier. Their third fundamental text was the Sefer ha-Zohar (the Book of Splendor). Some scholars say it was written in Spain during the 13th century and others say it was written in the Holy Land during the second century. These are not minor discrepancies. It is clear that with respect to the origins of the Cabala, there is little consensus among scholars.

But I happened to know a few things about the medieval Cabala that these scholars did not know: a) I had evidence that the medieval cabalists were in possession of literature of alien origin, b) I was able to determine approximately when they came into possession of that literature, and c) I was able to uncover the text of some of that literature. This knowledge enabled me to read books like Saadia Gaon's Commentary on the Sefer Yetzirah (the complete version) and gather information that other scholars would have passed over as nonsense, likewise for the Works of the Chariot in the Sefer ha-Bahir, likewise for the Commentary of Isaac the Blind and other cabalistic literature that came to be translated during the last century.

This led me to the conclusion that the Cabala originated between the late sixth and early seventh centuries when the Lord decided to fulfill His biblical promise: "I shall send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord." The prophet Elijah made numerous fiery descents in his Chariot, delivering, apparently piecemeal, the Book of Revelations to Judaic scholars in a Babylonian desert. Indeed, the beginnings of the Geonim and their academies roughly correspond to the time of Muhammad's encounters with Gabriel, and Babylonia was relatively close to Muhammad's Arabia. Moreover, Elijah the prophet and Gabriel the angel were both described as luminous (suggesting the use of holograms). Regarding sound, Gabriel spoke in "imperious" voice, and Elijah's speech, glorifying the Lord, echoed in the desert.

It must be noted that Muhammad's angel was quite unlike the angels we see depicted in the religious paintings of the Christians. This was no winged child; Muhammad reported that Gabriel was massive in size: his stretched-out wings covered the entire mountain! A mere case of mistaken identity must therefore be ruled out.

The Revelations of Elijah (of which thirty-nine passages are still extant), however, are wholly silent on the theme of authorship of the Quran. But the investigation into the origins of the Revelations turned up a big surprise. Elijah the prophet delivered more than just the Revelations to those scholars in the desert. Elijah also delivered the Sefer Yetzirah, which of course explains why this book was widely believed to be of divine origin. Consequently, the Sefer Yetzirah – in addition to the Revelations – may have been written by the extraterrestrial, giving us another place to look for clues on authorship of the Quran.

The first sentence of the Sefer Yetzirah reads as follows:

Into thirty-two mysterious paths of wisdom did (he/it) engrave Yah, Lord of the Legions, God of Israel, God of Life, King of the Ages, All-powerful God, Creator of Good, Dwelling in the Heights, Dwelling in Eternity, Holy Be His Name, and create (his/its) world with three books: written, numerical, and verbal.

Pistorius' translation of the last three words into Latin was Scriptis, numeratis, pronunciatis.

The cabalists identified the written rendering as pertaining to the Revelations of Elijah (deemed written in heaven by the archangel Metatron and merely delivered by Elijah). And they identified the numerical rendering as pertaining to the Sefer Yetzirah itself, since this book, deemed written by Abraham, was essentially a numerical account of creation via combinations of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. As for the verbal rendering, they concluded that this had to be the Book of Moses (Torah), now deemed to have been verbally dictated to Moses on Mount Sinai. But that makes little sense. Moses was too distant in time to be part of singular authorship of the three books. The verbal rendering therefore has to be the Quran, verbally transmitted to Muhammad on the Mountain of Light.

Was an extraterrestrial behind the Quran?

On whether the Quran was authored by Allah or by an extraterrestrial astronaut, the preponderance of evidence tends to favor the astronaut.

Note that the Quran provides a cross-reference. It refers to the "Books of Abraham and Moses" though, to this day, most Muslims seem to be unaware of any book that can be attributed to Abraham.

The Quran and the Sefer Yetzirah were evidently designed to be read by people with the mentality of the seventh century, and consequently they are far from what we might expect an extraterrestrial to write. On a closer look, however, those two books can be viewed as powerful instruments of behavior modification.

SEFER YETZIRAH (translation by Kaplan)

"Ten Sefirot of Nothingness: ten and not nine, ten and not eleven. Understand with Wisdom, and be wise with understanding. Discern with them, and know, think and depict."

Among other things, the Sefer Yetzirah is suspected of having influenced the introduction of Arabic numerals which greatly facilitated modern sciences.


"He grants wisdom to whom He pleases, and whoever is granted wisdom has indeed been granted abundant good; and none would be reminded except those endowed with understanding."

Like the Sefer Yetzirah, the Quran heavily promotes wisdom and understanding. And among other points of interest, Islamic scholars claim that the Quran alludes to the existence of life on other planets:


"And among His signs is the creation of heavens and the earth, and the living creatures that He has scattered through them."

The Quran refers to Elijah most notably in the verse "Peace be on Elias and his people" (Elias is the Greek form of Elijah), which seems rather ironic in view of the contemporary Islamic-Judaic conflict. A special curiosity is whether "the shining Book" (found elsewhere in the Quran) could be alluding to the Revelations of Elijah given that there are hints in the medieval literature that this book emitted light.

Unlike the Quran and the Sefer Yetzirah, the Revelations were apparently designed to be read by people in the 21st century, self-evident by virtue of the surviving text.

Extraterrestrial Literature – Q & A

Wikipedia, in its extensive article on Elijah the prophet, makes no mention of Elijah’s return to Earth during the lifetime of Muhammad and it makes no mention of any revelations attributable to Elijah. How can you make those claims about Elijah and his revelations when scholars apparently know nothing about it?

First of all, I can assure you that the revelations are not a figment of my imagination. References to the Revelations of Elijah can be found in a book published by Gershom Scholem, the foremost cabala investigator and translator of the 20th century.

Scholem, however, was never able to find or identify those revelations though there is reason to believe that he spent years searching for them. Consequently, he criticizes the medieval cabalists when they express a desire to research Latin sources (was there anything of value not in Hebrew?), but he does not know that the revelations were written in Latin. Scholem ridicules the cabalists when they refer to a divine calendar (what’s this?), but he is unaware that the revelations give dates on an unknown calendar. And he harshly mocks the cabalists when they write about the Moon goddess (in one-deity Judaism?), but he is unaware that the revelations refer to Diana.

The medieval cabalists were an outcast branch of Judaism, often hated and despised by mainstream Jewry. However, out of Jewish inclinations to conserve antiquity even when it could not be understood, much of their medieval literature survived to reach the 20th century when it got translated into modern languages. They translated it not particularly out of a strong desire to learn what the cabalists had to say but because the cabalists were Jews and hence a part of Jewish heritage.

In general, the translators found cabalistic writings to be incomprehensible and indeed a lot of it would be incomprehensible without a copy of the revelations at hand. So the translators decided to classify cabalistic writings as mysticism, which is a polite way of saying that they believed these writings to be the work of a people gone mad. Compounding the problem, the cabalists often wrote obscurely or cryptically on purpose to help protect the revelations from destruction (and themselves from extermination) by hostile forces. Consequently, though many allusions to Elijah’s return and the revelations were published in the 20th century, scholars do not mention it in Wikipedia articles because the source of this information was of doubtful validity, i.e. mysticism.

What was the extraterrestrial's motive for writing those three books?

The alien insinuated that he wanted to create a world to his liking, presumably the world in which we now live, and I see no reason to doubt him on that.

The enormous impact of the Quran is well-known; of special note, Islam conserved ancient knowledge and promoted the arts and sciences at a time when Europeans preferred to burn books rather than read them.

Meanwhile, the Sefer Yetzirah, after the Bible, became the most studied book in Jewish history. It apparently inspired the resurrection of Hebrew as a living language along with Jewish dreams for a homeland.

The publication of some of the alien's revelations, masked by a deluge of false prophecies, was the foremost objective and reason for creation of the Rose Cross whose manifesto opened the gateways for scientific advancement. The influence of the Revelations was indeed far-reaching and can be found in unexpected places. For example, as later demonstrated on this website, all thirty-six of the Shakespearean plays in the First Folio have passages that correlate with one or more of the revelations. In essence, the Shakespearean plays – published under the disguise of works to be performed in a theater – are a guide to retrieving the Revelations of Elijah. And global pundits think those plays were written by a businessman from Stratford!

For sure, the long and complex chain of cause and effect cannot be ascertained with precision. However, it seems safe to assume that, without the introduction of those three books in the 7th century, humankind today might still be living exactly like it did back then, engulfed in endless cycles of famine, plague, and war.

You say that the original Revelations of Elijah was a book that emitted light. Is it extant today? If not, what happened to it?

When you ask a question to which no one has a certain answer, you get a fantastical response. Reports from the late 16th century insinuate that it had become apparent that the dates found in the revelations applied to the Julian calendar and not to a divine calendar running from the beginning of time. Essentially, this meant that the medieval cabalists were deceived, that they wasted a thousand years of study, that the book in their possession was not divine revelation but rather the work of Satan. Thus, the Revelations of Elijah were destroyed, burned, exploding into blazing hellfire when ignited. And their secret possession of the revelations was allowed to vanish from memory, but not before they arranged for the translation and masked publication of some of them (namely, the thirty-two revelations identified as Paths of Wisdom plus seven others), surely hoping this would upset Satan’s plans for the future of humankind as revealed in his dire predictions. It is mainly by virtue of those surviving revelations that we are able to understand cabalistic literature and recover the story of Elijah's return.

You claim that the Quran and two other books were authored by an extraterrestrial astronaut. How can you claim such a thing when the worldwide community of scientists assert that the Earth has never been visited by aliens?

Even before the recent discovery of hundreds of nearby planets, genuine scientists believed there were billions of planets and that intelligent life could be abundant in the universe. True, there are enormous distances between the stars but likewise the time scales are enormous. Our planet is only 4.5 billion years old in a galaxy that is more than 13 billion years old. That leaves billions of years to explore the galaxy, which can be easily accomplished even at the slow speeds we are currently able to attain. Extraterrestrial visitation at some point in our past is far more likely than not, so all possible signs of any such visitation should be thoroughly investigated.

Let’s clarify that no one can justifiably assert that the Earth has never been visited by aliens because no exhaustive search for alien artifacts has ever been undertaken by scientists. In any case, there is no mystery about the specific extraterrestrial who wrote the Revelations (and evidently the Quran as well) because the artists of the ancient Andes made numerous symbolic drawings of him and these are reproduced on the Andean Connection pages of this website. Like us, this alien had two eyes and one mouth, two arms with hands at the end but with four fingers rather than five. Unlike us, he had no legs and feet but rather an aquatic tail, and his astronaut helmet was apparently filled with water rather than air.

There can be little doubt that these Andean drawings depict the true author of the Revelations: as we shall see, the revelations themselves unmistakably associate their author with the ancient Andes.

Extraterrestrial Literature – Addendum

Cabalistic secrets can be found in places other than works written in medieval Hebrew. Here we refer to early Rosicrucian literature, primarily the Fama Fraternitatis (their anonymous manifesto written in German) and the English-language New Atlantis, attributed to Sir Francis Bacon but suspected of being the translation of a Latin manuscript later published in Germany under the title of Novus Atlas. These books, in various ways, describe and identify the cabalist we know as Isaac Luria, indicating that he was a founding member, or even the founding father, of the Rosicrucian secret society. Considering that Luria is frequently associated with Elijah in the literature, there is ample reason to believe that he was the last guardian of the Revelations. And Luria, as the last recipient of an oral tradition lasting a thousand years, may be the one who communicated (Iudaeus mihi dixit) the vivid description of Elijah (Eliam Messiae) and his Chariot – as observed upon his return to Earth in the late 6th century – that we find in the Novus Atlas. This is that description per the English version:

"He was a man of middle stature and age, comely of person, and had an aspect as if he pitied men. He was clothed in a robe of fine black cloth, with wide sleeves and a cape. His under garment was of excellent white linen down to the foot, girt with a girdle of the same; and a sindon or tippet of the same about his neck. He had gloves, that were curious, and set with stone; and shoes of peach-coloured velvet. His neck was bare to the shoulders. His hat was like a helmet, or Spanish montera; and his locks curled below it decently: they were of colour brown. His beard was cut round, and of the same colour with his hair, somewhat lighter. He was carried in a rich chariot without wheels, litter-wise; with two horses at either end, richly trapped in blue velvet embroidered; and two footmen on each side in the like attire. The chariot was all of cedar, gilt, and adorned with crystal; save that the fore-end had panels of sapphires, set in borders of gold; and the hinder-end the like of emeralds of the Peru colour. There was also a sun of gold, radiant, upon the top, in the midst; and on the top before, a small cherub of gold, with wings displayed..."

Possibly this cherub can be identified as Metatron, the heavenly scribe, here guiding Elijah on his descents to deliver the revelations that he had engraved into fragments of the primordial light on behalf of the Lord.

Take special note of the radiant sun up on top and in the midst. In parts of the ancient Andes, the extraterrestrial astronaut became known as Inti, the sun god. See La Historia del Sol for more information (in Spanish).
