Alien Project

The strange mummies of Peru

About the project

Dear Friends & Internet Users,

You have been very numerous since the beginning of this incredible history to advise me to launch a "participatory financing" operation, or crowfunding, to determine, through extensive scientific analysis (mainly DNA and C14),  the origin of the bodies and the mummified organs  discovered in southern Peru in January 2016.

We are aware that thousands of people around the world want to know, like us, whether it is a fraud or authentic biological relics belonging to terrestrial species unknown or outside our planet.

So, my team and I decided, with all humility, to listen to you and to launch this operation of crowfunding, baptized "Alien Project", allowing us to obtain the answers that we hope all.

Thanks to you, and if you give us the ways, we are going to clear up all this affair. We will shed light on this story and we promise to tell you everything.

Who we are ?

But first of all, let me remind you that the main object of the Inkari-Cusco Institute, which I have the honor to preside over since 2009, is not ufological research, but archaeological research, in the frame and the respect for the procedures and regulations governing of the modern archeology (see : www.instituto-inkari.org).

For nearly twenty years, my team and I have been studying the permanent presence of the Incas in the Amazon rainforest and the location of their main settlement: the lost city of Paititi. This research has always been supervised by projects approved by the Peruvian authorities, mainly the Ministries of Culture and Environment (see : www.granpaititi.com).

For years, the Inkari - Cusco Institute has enjoyed a good reputation, thanks to the discoveries made by my team in Machu Picchu in 2012 (see : www.machupichu-ciudadela.com). This is why we are regularly contacted by Peruvian citizens who have discovered some ruins near them. Or others ask us to obtain an expertise, for example concerning objects discovered in their fields. It is in this context that we were contacted at the end of October 2016 by two inhabitants of Cusco about mysterious mummies discovered a few months ago in the desert of southern Peru. The rest you know ...

Disseminate this information

Convinced of the authenticity of this story, what should we do ? Keep it for us, or make it known to the general public ? For decades, millions of people around the world have been looking for "evidence". This group of Peruvian "huaqueros" may have discovered this evidence.

Now, totally involved in this history (which contains, it is true, still numerous shadow zones), the members of the Institute Inkari - Cusco is going to lead the investigation for you, and with you.

We will apply the methods of modern archeology for this matter. Those that allowed us to discover about forty new archaeological sites in the department of Cusco between 2009 and 2013. Those also allowed us to confirm the existence of important burial chambers in the basement of the "Temple of Three Gates ", in Machu Picchu. Finally, it is these same methods that allowed us to locate, in 2012, the probable place where the queen of the lost cities of South America hides: the mirobolante city of Païtiti. The official discovery of this legendary site is, in our opinion, imminent (see also : Thierry Jamin, « L’Aventurier de la cité perdue », éditions du Trésor, Paris, mars 2014).

It is therefore with our methodology that we propose to follow you in this research concerning the case of these mummified bodies and organs. And you can trust us, if it is an imposture, or a fake, we will be the first to denounce it.

Hoax or "historic" event ?

I understand perfectly that we can have doubts in an affair so extraordinary. I think that my companions and I would have had the same justifiable doubts by looking the photos and the videos broadcasted on the Internet.

However, these biological artifacts were examined in Cusco by some 15 archaeologists, biologists, doctors and anatomists. And none of them has speculated on fraud. So, if it is a hoax, it is well mounted ! If these objects are the work of a forger, we must pay him homage for the exceptional quality of his work.

If there is a fraud, we have not detected it yet. And the only way of putting everybody all right, the partisans as the sceptics, is not it to make advanced scientific analyses of these objects, in particular DNA and C14, in several international laboratories ? So let's talk to the researchers !

To the Institute Inkari, we do not try to prove although it is. The rash declarations, formulated by certain Internet users denouncing a trickery, do not certainly raise this inviolable principle. As writes it Albert Eistein, "the one who has never made error, has never innovated"…

Like thousands of citizens around the world, we just want to know.

Why DNA and C14 analyses ?

The analyses in which we suggest you participating will allow to determine:

  • If it is a question many biological materials, or not.
  • If it is known, unknown animal species, or not identified. Unless it's something else...

If it is well an imposture, 100 % of the components of these bodies and mummified organs should, according to any logic, be identified by analyses.

But if these same relics belong to an unknown animal group or to a species outside our planet, analyzes should logically also reveal "unknown elements" ranging from more than 0% to 100%.

Unity is strength !

We thus launch, right now, a appeal to all the Internet users, to the partisans of the authenticity of these strange "relics", as to the sceptics, or simply to the curious, in brief, to all those who, as us, want to know the truth on this story, to join this operation to allow as soon as possible, the launch of these analyses.

We are committed to providing you with full transparency reports and keeping you regularly informed of their progress.

Dear Friends Internet, we all count on you to succeed this operation whose sole objective is the search for the truth. The philosopher Aristotle said "the ignorant affirms, the wise doubt and the scientiste thinks".

You can also count on us. We will make all the light, whatever it is, on this incredible affair.

In the name of all the team of the Institute Inkari - Cusco and on my behalf staff, I am anxious to thank you in advance for the bottom of the heart for your support without which the truth on this story will doubtless never be made.

See You Soon !

And Best Wishes From de Heart of the Andes,

Thierry JAMIN

What are the funds for?

Through this participatory financing, the Inkari - Cusco Institute proposes to carry out in various laboratories of international renown the complete analyzes concerning the following materials :

  • Complete analyzes in three independent laboratories of materials derived from the small mummified head.
  • Analyzes in three independent laboratories of cotton fibers discovered in the small mummified head, then comparative study with cottons of nasca and paracas cultures.
  • Analyzes in a Peruvian laboratory of the powdery product in which the mummified remains were discovered, followed by a comparative study with minerals present in the coastal region of Nasca-Paracas.
  • Finally, analyzes in a Peruvian laboratory of one of the metal implants discovered in one hand three fingers.

Other analyses will besides be thrown at the same time by our contact "Paul" in other laboratories, concerning other biological rooms. Through this operation of crowfunding, the Inkari-Cusco institute suggests taking care of a part only analyses of the material in possession of the latter.

The sum collected will be paid into the account of the Instituto Inkari Cusco, an NGO declared in Peru.
