Gerald Clark is a 1994 graduate of the University of California at San Diego (UCSD). Gerald holds an MSEE in Electronic Circuits and Systems, and a BS in Computer Engineering both from UCSD. Gerald is the author of several papers in the communications and electronics field and is well known for his work in the San Diego high technology industry, awarded several patents in the Free Space Optical Laser Communications field while serving as Vice President of Engineering, LightPointe Communications, Inc. Gerald’s career involved companies like Loral Telemetry and Instrumentation where he lead the final phase of the Globalstar Telemetry and Command modem designed for Qualcomm- used to command, monitor, and control 54 LEO Globalstar Constellation Satellites. While serving as VP Engineering at Tiernan Communications, Gerald and his small team of hardware and software engineers were credited with “Digitizing American Television”, having demonstrated the first live HDTV ABC Monday Night Football game on-air transmission from New York to San Diego using Tiernan Communications, Inc. HDTV 1080i/720p MPEG-2 Encoders.
During the years 1996-2002, working as a telecommunications executive, Gerald’s business travels took him to various parts of the world exposing him to a plethora of cultures which acted as a catalyst for his research into mankind's earliest technologies and accomplishments, including the cultures of Mesopotamia and the surrounding areas of Turkey, Egypt, Persia, and Iraq, eventually leading to the cuneiform-inscribed tablets left by the Sumerians.
Knowledge of the Anunnaki here on Earth, both in the ancient past their presence here and now, is being fully-disclosed around the world. My hope is that this book will help the billions of primitive workers, left to fend for themselves on a hostile planet, to find hope that following the great destruction underway, wrought by the warring gods of Light and Dark, a promised peace in the new age of Aquarius is dawning, actually already upon us.
The FREE PDF below is a shortened version of my autobiography, which I am writing in my spare time, and should be ready by end of Q1. Felt like it might help some of you understand where my ideas were forged in this life, ultimately leading to writing both The Anunnaki of Nibiru and The 7th Planet Mercury Rising. Know that if a hillbilly from Arkansas can break out of the simulator, so can you! The file can be viewed online or can be downloaded by right clicking the file and choosing save link as option.
