If aliens are amongst us, which we are increasingly convinced is true, we seem to have this blanket term for what could be multiple civilizations. It is likely, of course, that aliens think of the population of Earth as ‘humans.’
Almost every week there are new stories supporting the idea that aliens are amongst us. At the same time, more and more senior figures seem to be preparing us for a presentation or revelation of the evidence (or at least some of it).
The latest of these, Bill Nelson, a senior NASA Administrator, has been talking to pilots and other witnesses and says, “Who am I to say that planet Earth is the only location of a life form that is civilized and organized like ours?”
Other discussions are heating up as we become convinced that aliens are amongst us. Not just ‘where do they come from’ but also ‘how did they get here?’
For the moment, perhaps we should put these questions to one side. Asking how aliens got here is like wondering how a tree grows, if you are an ant. Some say that whatever the answer is, it must follow the laws of physics – yet who are we to say what universal laws are and how they apply to our little ant colony, with its tiny little perspective?
Perhaps we should concentrate on the important issue.
If aliens are amongst us, what should (and can) we do about it?
For a start, we need to address the issue of the blanket definition. Aliens, you can be sure, are more interesting than just ‘aliens’ or ‘humans.’ They will almost certainly be as interesting and diverse as all the tribes and nations of the Earth.
Some will probably be friendly and want to help us develop technology that can launch us into space, properly (having saved the planet).
Others, however, may be considering us in a different light. As The War of the Worlds has it: “Intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us.”
We may, in fact, be about to become pawns in a galactic game of chess.
Certainly, sightings and observations differ and along with the descriptions, the level of aggression also varies.
One fighter pilot describes one encounter where the UFO that he was tracking committed an ‘act of war.’ He locked his super sensitive radar on the craft and David Fravor, the pilot, says “the radar is smart enough that when the signal comes back if it’s been messed with, it will tell you. It was being jammed into about every mode you can see… You can tell it’s being jammed. When you actively jam another platform, that’s technically an act of war.”
Other stories relate force fields stopping humans approaching grounded craft and feeling the effects for a long time afterwards (although the descriptions of these events do say things like ‘the farmer was boiling with indignation and chilly with fear’ which lessens the impact).
These can be added to multiple descriptions of grounded crashed UFOs and small, humanoid figures running about repairing them, as well as the less popular (too scary) stories of alien abduction.
Most of authoritative stories of aliens amongst us, of course, come from the military and some are worrying in the extreme. Back in 1967, incidents were reported of nuclear ICBMs being rendered completely useless. In fact, reports of alien sightings increased dramatically at about the point that nuclear weapons became a ‘thing.’
Evidence is increasing that aliens are amongst us (and refuelling from the Sun) but it is likely that they do not come from one place or want the same thing. In fact, it is likely that at least some of them do not ‘come in peace.’ Even NASA is saying we should get ready.
