I asked microbiologist Dr.Tyler Kokjohn about circumstances surrounding the recent statements of Dr. Steven Greer of the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence. Greer claimed access to a possible deceased extraterrestrial biological entity, or EBE. He wrote on his blog that substantial resources were needed in order to conduct tests.
“If a corpse is in hand,” Dr. Kokjohn explained, “a great deal of important anatomic/histological work can be performed immediately at a low financial cost. Work as simple as taking a look at a blood smear, confirming that cells with nuclei that might harbor DNA are present, performing some antibody titers and seeking relationships with human proteins such as albumin or hemoglobin would be logical starting points. Running the standard panels we deploy for routine screens of the general health status of humans all the time would be extremely informative. And inexpensive.”
