A Russian who has baffled scientists since birth claims he lived on Mars before he was reborn on Earth.
Boriska Kipriyanovich has confounded experts with his knowledge of outer space for nearly 20 years.
His parents claim that he was able to speak months after he was born and would often discuss subjects they had never taught him, such as alien civilisations.
As a toddler, he amazed his doctors by being able to read, write and draw by the age of two.
His mother, who herself is a doctor, said the first indication that he was special came a couple of weeks after birth, as he was able to hold his own head up unassisted.
Boriska, from Volgograd, claims to have lived on a ‘war-ravaged’ Mars, which suffered from a nuclear catastrophe in the distant past.
He says that Martians measuring about seven-feet tall still live undergound on the Red Planet and breathe in carbon dioxide.
According to Boriska, they are immortal and stop aging at an age of 35 years. They are also technologically advanced and capable of interstellar travel.
As a schoolboy, Boriska explained how the Martians had a strong connection to the ancient Egyptians on Earth and how he had once visited the planet as a pilot.
He said that life on Earth will change dramatically when the Great Sphinx monument in Giza is ‘unlocked’, adding that the opening mechanism is hidden behind an ear.
