Another one was the sightings of UFO’s coming out from the ocean, which was explained to have happened perhaps because the center of the Earth was populated by extraterrestrial beings, who from time to time emerge from the poles in spacecrafts, perhaps because in the 20th century Hohlwelttheorie was linked with the belief of aliens. Moreover, this theory has also been linked with conspiracies such as that the Nazi specially Hitler knew of an entrance to the interior world at the South Pole, and that Hitler next to other of his colleagues and friends fled there at the end of WWII. In that same wavelength the popular science fiction story “A journey to the Centre of the Earth” by French novelist Jules Verne (1828-1905) has given the theory its most lasting exposition starting in the late 19th century, in which he describes the discovery of a prehistoric world by explorer who went down a volcano to find out this interior world, that had its own source of light, water, and life was

Over the past few decades the ideas of aliens has morphed into a craze, that one has to ask themselves, “what is an alien?” With “aliens” being in Hollywood movies and roller coaster rides, what do we actually consider to be aliens? Is it a life form that doesn’t live on earth or is it a “little green man”(dictionary.com). The media has totally changed the perspective of what foreign life forms are. Making them almost unbelievable. The term alien no longer has the mystery and excitement and possibility behind it, rather it has become a more colloquial term in regards to disbelieve.
In Kennedy’s speech, he claimed that the United States would reach the moon by the end of the decade. He used multiple metaphors throughout the speech, he even compared the idea of space exploration to that of climbing Mount Everest. One of his most famous lines from this speech is, “We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard”. This quote from his speech is an example of the usage of Pathos, in the fact that it provokes an emotional response from his audience.
The movie War of the Worlds directed by Stephen Spielberg came out in 2005 and is one of the many adaptions of the original book by Herbert George Wells in 1898. This movie retells the story of aliens inside capsules who invade earth and begin to destroy humanity.

The aliens begin to attack in New Jersey and the dad escapes with his children while they endure intense encounters with the aliens as they head towards Boston.
69). In Book I, Nicolaus strongly argues against the geocentric theory, which states that the Earth is at the center of our solar system. Claudius Ptolemy, a Greek Geographer and Astronomer, came up with this theory. Everyone later on came to believe the geocentric theory. Controversy augmented when Nicolaus evolved the heliocentric theory, which was later included in Book I of De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium.
Thousands of years ago, people thought that the Earth was located in the center of the Universe. As Carl Sagan, the coauthor of The Geocentric View stated, “For them, the Earth did not move in the sky and it did not rotate on its axis. Rather, all the planets and stars rotated around the Earth.”(Text 1 by BHP and Sagan). The Greek astronomer Ptolemy is one of these individuals. Ptolemy described about the geocentric view (“geo” referring to Earth and “centric” meaning center”) in his book Almagest.
10 years later, The Cloverfield Paradox was released. This movie is meant to be the prequel to Cloverfield and sets up how the entire incident in New York happened. Within the movie we see that a group of scientists from around the world board a spacecraft and head to space. There, they try and figure out how create a sufficient unlimited power source to save the Earth from power depletion. In order to create this power source, the scientists fire up this machine that accidentally create this portals to other dimensions, and as a result, the monster in Cloverfield is able to transport onto the Earth and wreak havoc on New York City.
The Cosmologist of “The Naba Zid-Wendé” Humans all over the world and at all time periods have wondered everything about the creation of the world. This phenomenon - the unity of personal thoughts all around the globe - is known as the collective unconscious, as mentioned in “The Inner Reaches of Outer Space: Metaphor as Myth and as Religion” reviewed by Robert A.

Chapter 1 – The Ancient Egypt – Atlantis and the Zep Tepi Correlation The fabled “First Time” or Zep Tepi, tells of Gods or Aliens who founded and conquered Earth, in which the waters of the abyss receded, the primordial darkness was banished, and finally the human biogenetic experiment emerged into the light. “The Urshu”, a category of lesser divinities whose title meant “The Watchers”, preserved vivid recollections of the gods themselves, known as puissant and beautiful beings called the “Neteru” who lived on Earth with humans in the beginning.
