The Pleiades is a beautiful, bluish star cluster located in the constellation Taurus and containing many hundreds of relatively young stars. They are about 400 light years distant, and so lie relatively close to us, within our own galaxy.
Only the brightest six or seven are visible to the unaided eye, and these have acquired the names indicated in the photo. The Pleiades would seem to be a most improbable region of the heavens for extraterrestrials (ETs) to come from, to have a home in. Most of the stars in this cluster are deduced to be only some 100 million years old, which is far too young to have allowed advanced life forms to evolve. However improbable it may seem, traditions of many cultural groups say that their ancestors came from the Pleiades. These include the Incas, the Iroquois, the Lakotas, the Cherokees, the Navahos and the Hopi. The Pleiades, and their star names, are also rooted in Greek mythology. Eduard Meier was eventually informed by his ET contactors that they came from a space-time dimensionally shifted form of the same Pleiades, whatever that may mean. If so, many surprises lie ahead of us, in the next several millennia, as our science and technology progress and evolve along with our spirituality, hopefully, and allow us to understand such matters.
