Ötzi Gives Skeptics Ulcers and Fits

New discoveries support Billy Meier’s information on accidental death of 5,100-year-old Iceman

Several years ago, when I first published information from the Billy Meier case pertaining to his advance knowledge of the discovery of, and specific details about, the so-called Iceman Mummy, skeptics were of course quick to try to debunk it. They apparently didn’t learn anything from the royal drubbing their fellow skeptics gave themselves, when they tried to debunk Meier’s Jupiter information…and ended up corroborating it instead.

In the Iceman matter, when claiming that Meier had backdated his information about Urk, as the Plejaren called him and as I’ll refer to him, they relied on the initial speculation from scientists that he had been murdered by being shot with an arrow, contrary to what the Plejaren said about Urk having fallen on an arrow and hitting his head on a rock, as a result of an epileptic seizure.

Now we learn that the famous Iceman had some very relevant ailments that were only recently discovered (emphasis added):

“Oetzi the Iceman, the 5,300-year-old mummy discovered in a melting glacier in the Italian Alps 25 years ago, was infected with the pathogen that gives people gastritis and stomach ulcers, new genetic analysis reveals.”

This takes on great importance because it turns out that there’s a medically recognized connection between those digestive system ailments and…epilepsy, as reported in this study (emphasis added):

“People with epilepsy had a statistically significant higher prevalence of most chronic conditions than the general population. Conditions with particularly high prevalence in epilepsy (prevalence ratio ≥ 2.0) include stomach/intestinal ulcers (PR, CHS 2.5, NPHS 2.7), stroke (PR, CHS 3.9, NPHS 4.7), urinary incontinence (PR, CHS 3.2, NPHS 4.4), bowel disorders (PR, CHS 2.0, NPHS 3.3), migraine (PR, CHS 2.0, NPHS 2.6), Alzheimer’s disease (PR, NPHS 4.3), and chronic fatigue (PR, CHS 4.1). There were no gender-specific differences in prevalence of chronic conditions among people with epilepsy.”

And from the same study:

“Clinicians would do well to ask questions about comorbidities, such as ulcers, allergies, and other medical conditions, as they may pose more obstacles in the management of epilepsy patients.”

The possible connection between gastritis and epilepsy is also mentioned here.

Hard to Stomach

New scientific information also revealed that Urk had a full stomach, with a large amount of undigested meat in it. That “the Iceman wasn’t overly concerned with cleaning the meat before he ate it” and that “It wasn’t the most hygienic of meals,” could have increased the risk of his gastritis and/or ulcers contributing to the epileptic seizure that the Plejaren said caused him to fall to his death.

A theory that he was fleeing for his life from killers wouldn’t be consistent with his having had the relative luxury of taking the time to prepare and eat the large meal itself…which may be better explained by what Ptaah told Meier, i.e. that Urk was “a member of a group of 14 persons who had camped there in the mountains”.

The Weapons

In the Meier information it’s explained that while dealing with the dead and dying, and because “Urk’s weapons were quite battered from the many years of use”, he “took parts of the weapons and also of the garment” from them. Anyone at that time would have done the same thing and taken Urk’s tools and weapons – which were found at the scene – and certainly not just pulled the arrow shaft, without the arrowhead, from his back. No matter the circumstance or motive, the opportunity to acquire highly prized weapons, etc., would be taken, since making them was extremely time consuming in those primitive times. And the reason his own companions didn’t likewise take the time to remove the weapons from their fallen comrade is explained by what Ptaah told Meier about the sudden and fierce weather conditions:

588. His death happened at that time in such a way that he fell (Note by CF: not just from standing to the ground, but some distance down) – caused by an epileptic fit – and was severely injured by one of his own arrows when he fell on his back, just at the moment when a primeval ice storm started.

589. As a member of a group of 14 persons who had camped there in the mountains, he was left laying on the ground because of his critical injury. Since the remaining 13 human beings were fully occupied with saving their own lives, they did not care for him.

590. Nevertheless, not all of them survived, as several of them died in the ice needle storm.

Lending more credence to Ptaah’s information about Urk acquiring weapons from the deceased warriors is this information pertaining to some of the arrows being made by different people:

“According to technical archaeologist Harm Paulsen, the two arrows could not have been fashioned by the same person. The fletching shows that one was wound by a left-hander and the other by a right-hander. Furthermore, the arrow with the extended tip was too long for the Iceman’s quiver.”

The arrows that were found in his quiver were protected from the elements, unlike the missing one that may have broken off upon impact with the rocks, and/or was pulled out of him by a companion and discarded.

Getting the Shaft

That Urk may indeed have fallen, as  Meier was told, is supported in this report:

“A recently discovered craniocerebral trauma with major bleeding in the back of the brain along with a skull fracture, indicate a fall or attack shortly before his death.”

Also as stated here:

“The medical examination held that either the arrow wound or the head trauma were sufficiently damaging as to cost Ötzi  his life.”

Regarding scientific/medical assessments that Urk indeed died quickly, this report says:

“Finding fibrin in the arrow wound is confirmation that Ötzi actually died very quickly after the arrow shot…”

That doesn’t mean he died because of it. It’s just as likely that the fall onto the rock, with or without the help of the arrow, killed him. And this is also consistent with a fall on the back :

“The arrow shaft appeared to have been broken off and some experts have suggested the position of the body indicated Ötzi himself had rolled over onto his stomach in an attempt to break off the shaft.”

The Plateau

While still theorizing that Urk was shot with an arrow, this acknowledges that he had someplace to fall from:

“This caused him to pack up and flee, climbing to the elevated pass where he was overcome by his attacker(s) and shot with the arrow from behind and below… I don’t think this happened in the gully. I’ve looked at the scene photos and can’t envision how Ötzi could have been shot from below in that tight gully, which is what the forensic evidence clearly shows on the arrowhead’s track through the body — even if Ötzi were bending over.”

As described here, “as they traversed an elevated plateau near a retreating mountain glacier at some 3210 meters above sea level, they passed a gully”. So the presence of the higher place from which he would have fallen to the lower level is indeed established.

The photographs also make clear that there’s a huge rock, perhaps many, upon which he could have landed on his back and then rolled onto his outstretched left arm, either deliberately as suggested above, or by the momentum from the fall, or he could possibly even have been turned on his stomach by one of his companions to determine his condition.

To Summarize  

The research – including the newest discoveries over more than 20 years subsequent to Meier’s preemptively published information – indicates that this man had a large, undigested meal and suffered from both gastritis and ulcers, which are medically associated with, and can trigger, the epilepsy that could have caused him to fall from the plateau onto the rocks below in the gully.

He had weapons that didn’t belong to him, including arrows made by two different people (we don’t know if one of the arrows was made by him). The blood* that was discovered on him and his belongings may be explained by, as Ptaah said, what occurred while he and his compatriots were attending to the dead and dying and from whom the weapons were taken.

The presence of the intact weapons, etc., would be supported by the sudden onslaught of the ice storm that initially buried him. That he wasn’t murdered but did indeed take that fall is also supported by a new scientific assessment.

Contrary to skeptical expectations that new discoveries from scientists over the years would increase the evidence that Meier backdated his information, instead the new information actually supports his original narrative…even better than when he first published it.

Ötzi Got their Goatsy

This information will certainly prove Urksome to the desperate skeptics who tried to make a claim to fame by attacking Meier’s information and his character. The goat that Urk ate has now gotten the skeptics and their  equally indigestible theories.

And since we already have the skeptics by the short hairs, perhaps the scientists will also now examine to see if there’s evidence that Urk himself didn’t have…pubic hair, which is what the Plejaren also claimed.

*From this article we read:

“DNA analysis revealed traces of blood from four other people on his gear: one from his knife, two from the same arrowhead, and a fourth from his coat. A CAT scan revealed that Otzi had what appeared to be an arrowhead lodged in one shoulder when he died, matching a small tear on his coat. The arrow shaft had been removed, apparently by a companion. He also had bruises and cuts on his hands, wrists, and chest.”

It also supports what Ptaah told Meier about the situation that Urk and his group were observing, prior to the actions they would take when the fighting was over, and the presence of blood from the dying and dead and the various weapons and garments found with him:

“5. Truth is that Urk, together with his 13 comrades and in the Öetztal Mountains, was observing a fight to the death between six human beings of two rivalling groups or tribes, respective, who were killing one another.

6. When they were dead or dying, Urk and his companions came forth from their hiding-place and were unsuccessfully caring for the dying, and during this process Urk and also his companions were besmirched with the blood of the critically injured.

NOTE: The word “fits” is also a colloquial (informal) term for epileptic seizures.
