Is Uma Thurman a descendant of the race of tall blonde aliens often referred to as Nordics, and sometimes thought to be from Venus?

Some would say: Yes.

In the late 1940s-50s, there was a fella, George Adamski, who'd met Venusians, he said. This was one of the drawings he did of one of them:

At a 1950s Brazilian UFO conference, a mysterious Venusian queen with her two consorts showed up and savvy (or nutso) attendees pegged her instantly for the Venusian in Adamski's drawing:

Lon Strickler's Phantoms and Monsters:
One of the most curious UFO conferences of all time occurred on August 7-8, 1954. This meeting was held at the top of Mount Palomar, at an altitude over 6,000 feet, in front of the Skyline Lodge.

The congress was promoted by three of the most famous contactees: George Adamski, Truman Bethurum and Daniel Fry. More than a thousand persons attended, from American journalists, FBI agents, saucer witnesses and just the curious.

Each of the contactees told their own experiences and took the occasion to sell their autographed books.

At Adamskis turn, the professor explained that the Venusians were much alike human beings. So much so they had infiltrated our society and were living in the big cities. He also presented a painting with an artistic depiction of a Venusian.

At the end of the first day there was some commotion when the audience noticed the presence of two men and a woman with an exotic appearance. The rumor started that they were disguised Venusians. Those that Adamski had talked about a few hours before.

One of the men used glasses. The three were white and the woman had long blonde hair, but the strangest thing were her black eyes

One of the attendees asked them, without much embarrassment: Why are you here?"

"Because we are interested in this subject."

"Do you believe in flying saucers?"


"Is it true that, as Mr. Adamski says, that they come from Venus?"

"Yes. They are from Venus." (...)

Martins asked if he could photograph them, but they refused. They were bothered and tired of being called Venusians. According to Martins, Dolores Barrios looked very much like the painting that Adamski had shown.

For the rest of the conference the three became isolated and didnt talk with the other attendees. In the following day, at the end of the meeting, the strange visitors let themselves be photographed.

Nowadays its said that Martins photographed Dolores using a flash, surprising her. Dolores was scared and ran to the forest. Soon afterwards, a flying saucer was seen rocketing upwards, but no one was able to capture a photo."

There are several sites, such as the Galactic Roundtable, who claim to know some of these celestial beings by name, thanks to mediums, mystics, and channelers who keep in contact with them. From the site,

"The Nordics (also called the Blondes) are humanoid extra terrestrials found throughout the galaxy. The Nordics hail from various solar systems and star group notably, the Pleiades, Aldebaran, Andromeda, and Sirius. Each of these star systems host a variety of planets with humanoid races residing on them. The Nordics, like the Arcturians, are on a mission of peace to assist humanity here on Earth with spiritual development.

The Nordics have been donned their geographical title because they resemble people from that region here on Earth. Essentially, the Nordics reflect the characteristics of humanity on Earth with some variation. Accounts of these Nordic aliens describe them as remarkable beings with typically pale skin and light features, much like those of the Norwegians, Swedes, and other Northern European races. Their eyes have been described as taking on various colors such as pink, red, violet, purple, green and especially blue. Additionally, various Nordics have eyes shaped like those of the Greys or the Arcturians.
Nordic Aliens are typically slightly above average height for humans ranging from 5 to 6 ½ feet tall, although, accounts of Nordics over 7 feet in stature have been documented. The hair of the Nordics is almost always described as blonde, giving them their nickname. Typically, the Nordic that have been seen are in tremendous physical shape and of attractive appearance to our tastes on Earth. Nordic bloodlines are said to exist in terrestrial humans as well." (Posted by Acturian1 - 2/25/10)

So now let's check back over Uma. As the above notes, "Nordic bloodlines are said to exist in terrestrial humans as well." Take a good look:

That's her as Venus! In Terry Gilliam's Baron Munschausen.

Uma's father, Robert Thurman, is a renowned scholar whose translations of Buddhist texts like the Book of the Dead have helped eastern philosophy become more popular in the west. Buddhist mythology is very, very inter-dimensionally out there. Let's just imagine a Buddhist scholar is chosen by ancient gods to raise one of their own, ala the myth of Moses. Just imagine the shell that bore Venus from the sea was an underwater spacecraft (USO) bringing her to the shore, like Moses through the rushes, to spread love, poetry, chivalry and a hierarchy of beauty with her blonde, blue-eyed self as the perfect 10, thus ensuring her race's descendants in the human gene pool are given preferential treatment from then on:

Uma's mother, the goddess Nena von Schlebrügge, was first married Timothy Leary, then Uma's dad Buddhist scholar Robert Thurman:

It would make sense that she would be drawn to scholars as far out on the border between perception and the illusion of reality as Timothy Leary and Robert Thurman (the former became Uma's godfather). As if drawn to the interplanetary magic, acclaimed documentary filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker shot a short film chronicling Timothy Leary and Nena Von's wedding in 1964, "You're Nobody til Somebody Loves You":

"This movie is something of a mystery. Timothy Leary was getting married to a model named Nena Von Schlebrugge up in Millbrook, New York at the Hitchcock house, where Leary had been carrying on his hallucinogenic revelries for the past year or so after leaving Harvard. It was rumored that this was going to be the wedding of the season, the wedding of Mr. And Mrs. Swing as Cab Calloway put it. " - D.A. Pennebaker (PH Films)
Now you might think offhand that Timothy Leary (who Nena married in 1964) and Thurman (who Nena married in 1967) have nothing in common, but they actually do -- they have one thing especially in common, and so uncommon is it to have in common it's actually too interesting to dismiss as simple coincidence - The Tibetan Book of the Dead!

From Leary's "The Psychedelic Experience" - avail. online at Erowid
The Tibetan Book of the Dead is ostensibly a book describing the experiences to be expected at the moment of death, during an intermediate phase lasting forty-nine (seven times seven) days, and during rebirth into another bodily frame. This however is merely the exoteric framework which the Tibetan Buddhists used to cloak their mystical teachings. The language and symbolism of death rituals of Bonism, the traditional pre-Buddhist Tibetan religion, were skillfully blended with Buddhist conceptions. The esoteric meaning, as it has been interpreted in this manual, is that it is death of the ego and rebirth that is described, not of the body. Lama Govinda indicates this clearly in his introduction when he writes: "It is a book for the living as well as the dying." The book's esoteric meaning is often concealed beneath many layers of symbolism. It was not intended for general reading. It was designed to be understood only by one who was to be initiated personally by a guru into the Buddhist mystical doctrines, into the pre-mortem-death- rebirth experience. These doctrines have been kept a closely guarded secret for many centuries, for fear that naive or careless application would do harm. In translating such an esoteric text, therefore, there are two steps: one, the rendering of the original text into English; and two, the practical interpretation of the text for its uses. In publishing this practical interpretation for use in the psychedelic drug session, we are in a sense breaking with the tradition of secrecy and thus contravening the teachings of the lama-gurus.
Leary's adaptation of the TBOTD stresses ego death rather than real death, and Thurman has his own translation of the BOD... and while Leary was introduced to Von Schlebrugge by Salvador Dali, Thurman is a personal friend of the Dali Lama. Get the connection? Here's what Robert has to say about his relation to Buddhism:

 " Im not a real guru, Im an academic professor. I may be what they call a kalyanamitra, a spiritual friend of some of these people, offering advice now and then if I'm asked. But I don't try to take up the role of serious guru. In fact, part of choosing the professors or the academics life pattern has to do precisely with avoiding getting into the guru game with people. If I had stayed a monk, I would have had to have disciples, which gets you involved in the complications of being a guru, having people develop various kinds of transference toward you and dependencies on you, and I didn't think that was healthy for them or for me. I was helped in the decision, of course, by my wife Nena, who always insisted on maintaining that I not get deluded about there being anything exceptional about me! Shes been a great spiritual friend of mine, and had the foresight to encourage me to pursue more mainstream academic pursuits. Were on a pilgrimage together as much as possible." - Thurman in interview for HiLowBrow

Now we go to Nena's own mom, Uma's maternal grandmother, who posed for the below statue: 

It's cool, but for our purposes the below one is much more interesting:

  (L) Skogsrå - Axel Ebbe, 1913 / 1930. Axel Ebbes konsthall, Trelleborg, Sweden.
"The girl to the right is Uma Thurmans grandmother Birgit Holmquist, married Von Schleebrügge. The sculpture was originally made in 1913, but the artist changed the girls face in 1930 and used Uma Thurmans grandmother Birgit as his model. Birgit later married a German baron in Berlin, but left Germany for Mexico during the war. Umas mother Nena Schlebrügge was born in Mexico City, and became a model like her mother, but not for art but for fashion. Birgit returned to Germany in later years, but she wanted to be buried in her hometown Trelleborg, so thats where she rests now.

"A skogsrå (rå is pronounced raw and means watcher, skogs means connected to/from to the forest. Watcher of the forest, in other words) is both a beautiful wood nymph and an ugly hag at the same time. She lures people into the forest with her beautiful looks, and when they are too deep in to find their way back, she turns her back at them and then she looks just like a tree trunk. The charmed one is lost, deep in the forest. The skogsrå or huldra is mainly a trickster, not so much a demon. She can have sex with humans if she wants to, and if she does, they become silent and withdrawn afterwards, because then she has their soul. The skogsrå is also the ruler of all the animals in the forest. "(Source: The curator of the museum Axel Ebbes konsthall and genealogists Bo Lindwall & Gert Påhlsson.)
 Surely we can link this statue to the TBOTD since the description of the huldra matches descriptions of certain kinds of ghost-demons along the way to reincarnation that come on like beautiful, inviting women and then once you approach ensnare you and become evil devouring fiends. Seeing writhing sexual figures in flames or shadows on the wall while on LSD is common, and perhaps represents a less immersive version of this lesson, this parable for age and death, the way the invitation to life is always in the process of corrupting itself. Von Schlebrugge is perhaps the princess of this process, and one can perhaps divulge from this that she is an immortal with a soul stretching back to her aeons as Isis herself.

In the 1930s German anthropologists were all over the Himalayas and India looking for relics and magical boxes and links of Aryan - Tibetan - Indian ancestry:

(Uma) Thurman's maternal grandfather was Colonel Baron Friedrich Karl Johannes von Schlebrügge, a German military officer who had become one of the senior Nazi spies in the Americas but who was also jailed by the Nazis for protecting Jewish friends -Uma's Wiki: 

I mean no disrespect against the Thurman family or the Nordic aliens by bringing up the Nazi element to the story, but we can't ignore facets of the story just because of the evil that resulted. Much has been written (but not enough) for example, on the relationship of the Vinyanas in the Mahabarrata to the Hannebu UFO aircraft made in Germany under the guidance of mystic Maria Osric. The link above will delve more into it, but more shall be revealed still...

One can't connect it all without the weird hard-to-believe encounters with friendly Nordics by George Adamski and Billy Meier. We learn from them and other sources that the Nordics are very tall, as are Uma and Nena. 

And here's a fascinating video about Meier on youtube made by gorgeous mystic Gigi Young, who looks not a little bit like Nena Von Schlebrugge! Coincidence? She seems to know more than a little about the Nordics, and frankly I believe her as a result of her gift in channeling. Like Nena she went from fashion into eastern spiritual realms, as it were and her genetic resemblance to the goddesses above is surely no coincidence. Ms. Young talks below about Meier but her words apply to Adamski as well:


The Marija Orsic Connection:

Back in the 1920s, the Nazis got involved with these beings via mystics in the Vrill society, and its thought the Nordic alien genetic splice bloodline was represented by the hot psychic who channeled them, Marija Orsic (above):

In December 1919 a small group of persons from Thule, Vril and DHvSS (Men of the black stone) rented a small foresters lodge in the vicinity of Berchtesgaden (Germany) where they met, accompanied by Maria Orsic and another medium who is only known as Sigrun. Maria claimed to have received mediumistically transmissions in a secret German Templar script a language unknown to her containing technical data for the construction of a flying machine. Vril documents mention these telepathic messages had their origin in Aldebaran, a solar system 68 light-years away in the constellation Taurus. She had two piles of papers: one with the Templar script, the other with a legible writing. Maria suspected the second pile would be written in an ancient eastern language and therefore she could be aided by the Panbabylonists, a circle close to the Thule society which was integrated by Hugo Winckler, Peter Jensen, Friedrich Delitzsch and others. It turned out that the apparently misterious language was actually ancient Summerian and hence the language of the ancient Babylonian culture founders. Sigrun, from the Vril gesellschaft helped translate the language and decipher the strange mental images of a circular flight machine ---(Stormfront - Maria Osric and the Vril Society)

And this from the Hollow Earth Expedition (full article here)
The Vril Gesellschaft (Society) - motto: Not all good comes from above - works within The Thule Society, and practices techniques suggested in Vril: The Power of the Coming Race, by Edward Bulwer-Lytton. The Vril Chefin are psychic mediums who wear a horse-tail hairstyle, believing that their long hair acts as cosmic antennae to receive alien communication from beyond!

I'm not implying that Uma or her family is connected to the Nazis in any way, though there's a meeting point between 'Aryan' mysticism and Buddhism's origins in the Himalayas (Buddhist scholar Robert Thurman has been called the Dail Lama's right hand man), so on a very loose archaic level there is a common origin, pre-dating the Nazis by millenia. Uma's mom was from neutral Sweden and grew up in Mexico. I do think, however, that only Uma should play Marija in a film based on the Vrill society, and the fact that no such film has ever been made is rather shocking and disconcerting. Meanwhile, Tom Cruise makes VALKYRIE. Why bother? The plot to kill Hitler failed. But Maria's plot to escape the planet before the fall of Germany during the war apparently came true, as per stormfront:
In December 1943 Maria attended, together with Sigrun, a meeting held by Vril at the seaside resort of Kolberg. The main purpose of the meeting was to deal with the Aldebaran project. The Vril mediums had received precise information regarding the habitable planets around the sun Aldebaran and they were willing to plan a trip there. This project was discussed again the 22nd January 1944 in a meeting between Hitler, Himmler, Dr. W. Schumann (scientist and professor in the Technical University of Munich) and Kunkel of the Vril Gesellschaft. It was decided that a Vril 7 Jäger would be sent through a dimension channel independent of the speed of light to Aldebaran. According to N. Ratthofer (writer), a first test flight in the dimension channel took place in late 1944. The test flight almost ended in disaster because after the flight the Vril 7 looked as if it had been flying for a hundred years. Its outer skin looked aged and had suffered damages in several places.
Maria Orsic disappeared in 1945. The 11th of March of 1945 an internal document of the Vril Gesellschaft was sent to all its members; a letter written by Maria Orsic. The letter ends: niemand bleibt hier (no one is staying here). This was the last announcement from Vril, and since then no one heard again from Maria or the rest of members. It is speculated they escaped to Aldebaran.

In the end, I believe that on a very deep, DNA level, we already know the truth on these matters, and our reaction to ancient alien theory writing, which proliferates around the web in an ever-widening mercurial circle, should be, if nothing else, considered as an answer to a very real need to stop staring into screens and begin to live in our own science fiction novel; to dare to ask for the nuts and bolts details of our suspiciously un-mammal like existence rather than blindly accept western science's cavalier Darwinism or fundamentalist Christianity's 'intelligent' design.' We doubt the existence of parallel worlds, but don't think twice about rocketing our conversations back and forth from outer space via cell phones. If we could see all the stuff going on around us we'd faint, that's why it's hidden. But we can't keep our eyes closed forever... so just train them on the beauty of the blondes, and let the Nordics keep you safe, in the chill of... Kim Novak in Vertigo!
