Celestials have been described in religious-historical texts as transcendental entities that have intervened in human civilization in the form of guardians and protectors. Celestials have played leading roles in helping humanity deal with extraterrestrial entities or other life forms that have the power to significantly impact on human civilization. Celestials appear to play critical roles in helping resolve conflicts associated with the use of advanced technologies. In some cases, celestials have directly intervened against extraterrestrial entities that have violated what appear to be universal norms such as non-intervention and the diffusion of advanced technologies to unprepared populations.
The apocryphal Book of Enoch vividly illustrates the complex relationship between celestials, extraterrestrials and humanity. In the Book of Enoch, a group of 200 extraterrestrial entities called the ‘Nephilim’, or ‘fallen angels’, come to Earth allegedly due to their attraction to human females.
The Nephilim subsequently begin to interact with humanity by interbreeding:
[Ch. 6:1] And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto  them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men  and beget us children.' And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not  indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.'
The above passage points to extraterrestrials interbreeding with humans as a sin or violation of universal law. Presumably this stemmed from the progeny of such unions possessing genetic advantages that would inevitably led to them becoming rulers or exerting disproportionate influence to their numbers. Furthermore, extraterrestrial technologies would likely be shared with such progeny to assist them in asserting their rule over human society.
The relationship between humanity and the extraterrestrials led by Semjaza is not entirely negative since the latter teaches humanity a range of technologies and esoteric knowledge essential for developing an advanced civilization. This reflected cuneiform accounts of how the Anunnaki had helped in establishing the Sumerian civilization in Mesopotamia around 3800 BCE.:
[Ch. 8:1] And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all  colouring tinctures. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they  were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjaza taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, 'Armaros the resolving of enchantments, Baraqijal (taught) astrology, Kokabel the constellations, Ezeqeel the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiel the signs of the earth, Shamsiel the signs of the sun, and Sariel the course of the moon. And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven . . .
Whereas extraterrestrials are depicted as teachers of advanced technologies and civilization, celestials are depicted as instruments of universal will and high ethical standards.
In the process of teaching advanced technologies to humanity, the extraterrestrials have fomented much devastating warfare and suffering that has led to humanity lamenting to heaven for relief. The Book of Enoch describes the conflict that then occurs between the Nephilim and a group ‘righteous’ angelic entities or ‘celestials’:
[Ch. 9:1] And then Michael, Uriel, Raphael, and Gabriel looked down from heaven and saw much blood being  shed upon the earth, and all lawlessness being wrought upon the earth. … And they [the Nephilim] have gone to the daughters of men upon the earth, and have slept with the  women, and have defiled themselves, and revealed to them all kinds of sins. And the women have  borne giants, and the whole earth has thereby been filled with blood and unrighteousness.
It appears that the celestials are concerned about the way in which advanced technologies have been disseminated to an unprepared humanity, and how human sovereignty has been usurped by the progeny of the Nephilim. A specific complaint is that extraterrestrials have “revealed the eternal secrets which were (preserved) in heaven, which men were striving to learn.” [Ch. 9:6] The celestials are then depicted as carrying out universal will insofar as they intervene to end the rule of the Nephilim that have brought about an unbalanced state of affairs on the planet in terms of the level of advanced technologies and ethical behavior.
Each of the celestials or archangels is given specific instructions in dealing with Nephilim/Watchers by the transcendental “Most High” described in the Book of Enoch. The archangel Raphael is tasked to bind and imprison one of the leading Nephilim also described as one of the fallen angels, and to heal the earth. The celestials have the power to manipulate the extraterrestrials to destroy themselves, in much the same way the extraterrestrials or Nephilim have fomented war and strife among humanity. The ancient wars fought among the extraterrestrials that used advanced weapons that destroyed their cities are described by the researchers Zecharia Sitchin and Joseph Farrell. Finally, the Archangel Michael is asked to capture the leader of fallen angels, Semjaza, and his cohorts, and imprison them in hidden locations throughout the Earth:
[Ch. 10:11]… And the Lord said unto Michael: 'Go, bind Semjaza and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have defiled themselves  with them in all their uncleanness. And when their sons have slain one another, and they have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, till the day of their judgment and of their consummation, till the judgment that is  for ever and ever is consummated…. Destroy all wrong from the face of the earth and let every evil work come to an end: and let the plant of righteousness and truth appear: and it shall prove a blessing; the works of righteousness and truth' shall be planted in truth and joy for evermore.
In the above passage, the celestials led by Archangel Michael are depicted as protectors of humanity, and ended what appears to have been a highly unjust and violent civilization dominated by the Nephilim and their progeny. It appears that the extraterrestrials main fault was to have tempted humanity with advanced technology and knowledge when it was not ready to responsibly integrate this. This led to an imbalance between humanity’s level of technological sophistication and ethical standards. The celestials therefore appear in the Book of Enoch as ultimate protectors of a humanity that is easily led astray by small groups of extraterrestrials that exploit human elite’s desire for advanced technologies and knowledge.
Rectifying the imbalance between advanced technology and highly developed ethical standards appear to be the main goal of the celestials.
The Book of Enoch describes a situation not unlike what exists in the contemporary era in terms of secret agreements between government/corporate entities with some extraterrestrial groups. These agreements have resulted in bizarre genetic experiments, massive violations of human rights and widespread manipulation of human society. Clearly, humanity has not yet developed the necessary ethical standards to be able to responsibly use advanced extraterrestrial technologies. Will history repeat itself with celestials directly intervening in human affairs to end the influence of a small but historically influential group of extraterrestrials collaborating with human elites?
