Extraterrestrials are breeding with human beings to produce a superspecies which could one day save the planet from climate change, according to an Oxford University professor.
Alien-human hybrids could already be walking among us, Dr Young-hae Chi, an academic at Oxford’s Oriental Institute, claimed.
Dr Chi openly believes there is a “strong correlation” between alien abductions and changes to Earth’s climate, the Oxford Student, a campus newspaper, reported.
In a lecture given to a conference in 2012, Dr Chi said “it is not only scientists and theologians but also non-human species who appear to be greatly concerned about the survivability of the human species”.
A more recent attempt by the professor to have the subject discussed at the prestigious university’s debate club was rejected last year, the Oxford Student said.
Dr Chi, who is from South Korea, told the newspaper that aliens “are just next to us [but] we can’t see them”.
He said: “If they are far, they shouldn’t be concerned about us. I don’t think they are from far away, they are just next to us, we can’t see them.
“We can use an analogy of fish which can think and perceive things only in the way they can and humans also perceive only in the way we can, so our perception of the world is limited by our organs.”
In his 2012 address, Dr Chi said: “Perhaps human civilisation is coming to an end” and that extraterrestrials can sense this.
The professor said he agreed with theories that “aliens are intent on producing hybrids”.
“It may be more or less assumed that the hybrid project is a response to [the] impending demise of human civilisation,” Dr Chi said.
He added that “if aliens really wanted to colonise the Earth they should have started many centuries earlier”.
Dr Chi said this week he was “looking for more evidence” to support his theory and told HuffPost UK “the majority of reactions” to his claims “are like ‘yes, you are right, I have also experienced abduction by aliens, I can tell you more in detail if you wish’ or ‘what you said may be true’”.
“Occasionally people ask ‘do you have evidence for your claim that aliens are abducting humans?’ My answer is usually [that] abductions are reported from everywhere, UK, US, Germany, France, Japan, Korea, etc, with significant commonalities between them,” Dr Chi added in an email.
