Asteroid Approaching Earth – the Remains of a Planet Destroyed by the Human Race?

This blog was first published on and was translated into Portuguese on

This Sunday, March 21st, a 3,000-ft wide asteroid will pass near to Earth. The asteroid is considered “potentially hazardous” by NASA, but all asteroids that come within 4.6 million miles of Earth are classed this way. The closest scientists believe it will get to Earth is still more than five times as far away as the Moon.

Most asteroids, meteors and meteorites come from the asteroid belt – but what is the asteroid belt and where did it come from? The answer, as given by Dr. George King and the extraterrestrial intelligences who communicated through him, is quite a shocking one.

Where does the asteroid belt originate?

While some scientists suggest the asteroid belt is a “disrupted planet” that never fully formed, other scientists believe it is the remains of another planet, or planets, that previously existed. For example, a 2018 study from the University of Florida concluded:

…at least 85 percent of 200,000 asteroids in the inner asteroid belt — the main source of Earth’s meteorites — originate from five or six ancient minor planets. The other 15 percent may also trace their origins to the same group of primordial bodies…

Scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) at the California Institute of Technology analyzed the data from NASA’s Dawn spacecraft that went into orbit of the two largest asteroids in the belt, Ceres and Vesta. In 2020 they described Ceres as being a “relict ocean world” and said there may be reservoirs of salt water still in existence on it today, leading National Geographic magazine to describe Ceres as “geologically alive.” Water is, of course, a key factor for sustaining “life as we know it.”

These recent examples show scientific research is beginning to align with what Master of Yoga Dr. George King said in the 1950s. In his book published in 1961, The Nine Freedoms, he describes in detail how there used to be another planet in our Solar System known as Maldek. This planet was about the same size as Earth and orbited the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, the same position that the asteroid belt now occupies.

How did a planet turn into millions of asteroids?

Dr. George King received many messages from cosmic intelligences – advanced extraterrestrial beings from other worlds – throughout his lifetime.

To understand the origin of the asteroid belt we need to turn to a cosmic being who spoke through Dr. King known as Mars Sector 6

In 1957, Mars Sector 6 gave a message calling for people to rise up and demonstrate against the atomic bomb testing that the American, Soviet and British governments were undertaking at the time.

The reason these cosmic beings were concerned was that the human race has a history of atomic bomb experimentation long before the events of the twentieth century.

Prior to our civilization on Earth, the human race lived upon another planet, Maldek.

Here is an excerpt from the message from Mars Sector 6 in which he addresses the fate of the planet Maldek:

Picture the asteroid belt. Thousands of pieces of cold rock spinning through space; spinning through space, lifeless, devoid of atmosphere, a broken world; where, a few thousand years ago, there blossomed a green Planet. There blossomed a Planet teeming with life. Life which had likes and dislikes, hopes and ambitions. Life which dreamed of a better future. Life which pro-created itself. Life which knew happiness and sadness. Male and female joined as one and worked as one. Then came the younger ones from this. Until the few grew dissatisfied with their knowledge and began to explore those fields of science which they were not fully prepared to investigate. A great weapon was made for Peace. This weapon, made for Peace, eventually destroyed all life upon the Planet. Some of your Holy Works refer to this Planet as—Maldek.

A WEAPON MADE FOR PEACE! Some of you upon Terra are the re-incarnated life-streams of the people who perished upon Maldek. Some of the Dark Ones among you are those who destroyed Maldek. It seems that even time has not taught these so much.

Like the Mother Earth, Maldek was a living being, not just a lump of rock, but an advanced cosmic intelligence. So as well as destroying our own civilization on Maldek, the human race murdered a living entity – the planet itself. The asteroid belt is now all that remains of Maldek. 

This wasn’t the only example of this in our history either. We repeated the mistake of Maldek when we destroyed the ancient civilizations of Lemuria and Atlantis through atomic experimentation, although thankfully we didn’t manage to destroy an entire planet on those occasions.

The nuclear threat is still real today

This week The Guardian reported on a leaked document that shows the UK government is ending 30 years of gradual nuclear disarmament. Even just last year they were still adopting their policy of gradually reducing the number of weapons they have. But the leaked document shows they are intending to increase the cap on their Trident nuclear warhead stockpile by more than 40%.

This is a backward step and a worrying move, but, even with this increase, the UK’s stockpile is still dwarfed by the vast stockpiles of weapons belonging to the US and Russia. Even so, each of the UK’s warheads still in existence is more powerful than the bombs used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. 

An alien appeal for peace

One of the key themes of the many messages from the cosmic beings in contact with Dr. King in the 1950s was the need for us to cease atomic experimentation. These messages included specific appeals to the British government to cease its Christmas Island atomic bomb tests. These appeals were printed and sent to the British Prime Minister and Members of Parliament at the time, but the tests still went ahead. 

In 1956 the Master Aetherius, a cosmic intelligence living on the higher levels of vibration on Venus, spoke through the yogic mediumship of Dr. George King and made the following appeal:

Your military leaders have never improved the world; your conquerors or dictators have never improved the world. The only improvements—if you can call them that—which have been done upon Terra [i.e. Earth], especially just lately, have been done by the individual who works collectively for the good of his brother. All your Masters have told you that it is important—it is the most important thing—to love your neighbour as yourself. It is not right to hate yourself; neither is it right to hate your neighbour, for virtually when you hate yourself, you hate your Creator, for you are a part of that Creator as well as a part of His Creation. So is your neighbour.

There are many people upon Terra—I have heard them—who say, ‘I hate so-and-so’ and ‘I hate such-and-such a thing.’ What are they doing? They are hating God.

Of course, they are. Never use the word. It is a foul one and its meaning is dark indeed.

Look at Hiroshima and Nagasaki and you will see what hate is. Terrible! Do not let it happen again, for if it does the fault lines existing within the screen of your frail little Earth will open and indeed great calamity will befall you.

Is it not worth working for the peace of the world? Surely it is worth all your efforts.
