A newly conjectured “Planet 9” traces a highly elongated orbit. The recent claim by two Caltech scientists of the highly likely existence of “Planet 9” caused bells to ring when the elongated orbit was mentioned. For, I knew that Zecharia Sitchin had, back in 1976, theorized an undiscovered planet beyond Neptune that follows a long, elliptical orbit, reaching the inner solar system roughly every 3,600 years. At the Cave of Shanidar, evidence of habitation from about 100,000 to 13,000 years ago was found. The evidence showed REGRESSION – not PROGRESSION – until about 11,000 B.C. when – amazingly – there was a tremendous PROGRESSIVE leap forward in our so-called evolution. The 3,600 year return of “Planet 9” (also called Niburu and Planet X) may have played a role in our evolutionary leap forward. What did Stanley Kubrick know about it, and what did he try to tell us in movies such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, and The Shining?
Thus reads the description of my latest video, “At the Cave of Shanidar”, published to YouTube on January 24, 2016. The clip, which clocks in at 12 minutes and 22 seconds, is hopefully viewable at the top of today’s blog entry.
Zecharia Sitchin, in his book, The 12th Planet, first published in 1976, described excavations at the Cave of Shanidar. There had been a period of evolutionary regression when, inexplicably, around 11,000 B.C., there had been a tremendous advance. 
Looking further back in the periodic, 3600-year Planet X cycle, Sitchin notices the arrival of Cro-Magnon man (and woman) 35,000 years ago which, he says, is “mysterious and unexplained.” 
Cro-Magnon, according to Sitchin, originated in the Near East, in the “semiarc” from the Zagros Mountains in the east through the Ararat and Taurus ranges in the north then down and west into Syria, Lebanon, and Israel. 
After the “Cave of Shanidar” incident of around 11,000 B.C., in the time frame of circa 4500 B.C., “suddenly, unexpectedly, inexplicably – the Near East witnessed the blossoming of the greatest civilization imaginable…”  This seems to have been the Sumerian culture, which arrived out-of-the-blue.
And all these dramatic upswings appear to relate to the 3,600-year cyclical return of “Planet X”, also called Niburu, and now being called “Planet 9.”
Around 11,000 B.C., in the Southeastern Anatolia Region of Turkey, a site known as Gobekli Tepe had erected, peculiar T-shaped pillars. The Gobekli Tepe discoveries astonished the archaeological world, and you can see why from just one of the T-shaped pillars.
Similar strange pillars feature prominently in the Stanley Kubrick movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Was Kubrick trying to tell us something? That is the argument advanced in a documentary released in 2012: Room 237. Kubrick, it is argued, had made a secret deal with the U.S. government to film fake “moon landing” shots. We did go to the moon, theorizes one interpreter, yet the footage we were shown is a Stanley Kubrick production. Especially does Room 237 argue that Kubrick left many clues to this in his 1980 adaptation of the Stephen King novel, The Shining.
Hidden clues in the Stanley Kubrick movies… Strange pillars found both at Gobekli Tepe and in 2001: A Space Odyssey… An undiscovered planet beyond Neptune that follows a long, elliptical orbit, reaching the inner solar system roughly every 3,600 years… This is BIG. It is bigger than big. We may now be, figuratively speaking, once again at the Cave of Shanidar!
