UFOs are back in the spotlight. In the 90s there was a big surge in sightings and stories and conspiracy theories. Now, UFOs and the theories that surround them are back. Hardly a day goes by without something or someone coming to light.
One recent theory, by a bona fide professor from Montana Technical University, is that UFOs are humans travelling back in time, not ‘aliens’ at all.
Another advocate of aliens being among us already is astronaut Helen Sherman, who went to the International Space Station in 1991. She is convinced, as many people who have seen the vastness of the Universe from the front row are, that aliens exist, without a doubt, and are probably walking among us. She believes that the reason we cannot see them is that they are life forms that are so different – possibly silicon based – that our brains simply ignore them as being too bizarre. In effect, we set up an SEP.
The US and the UK navies have both agreed to post their most recent sightings of UFOs online, for all of us to see – and believe. The only problem here is that the sightings are generally of things moving very fast and behaving erratically (which sounds strangely like the editor of Disruptive.Asia).
Meanwhile, Doctor Who star, Jodie Whittaker, believes in aliens without hesitation. Mind you, she would, having been rushing about the Galaxy and saving it from a range of nasty aliens, some of whom cannot climb stairs.
So, with that (we grant you not enormous) weight of evidence, let us suppose that aliens do exist (and are not the editor of Disruptive.Asia and some of his stranger friends).
Let us further suppose that they are indeed us but from the future, presumably checking in to see how we are doing.
(Thinly) papering over the fact, that if they are humans from the future they would probably know how we are doing, so why come back, it does beg some questions.
- Where did we/will we get to and therefore come back from?
- How far in the future are we talking? A fortnight, a thousand years, a million years?
- What are the hairstyles/headstyles like in the future?
- Is Elon Musk still alive?
- What is going on with sex and gender and all that stuff? Did we/will we just sort of give it all up and have a nice cup of tea instead?
- Is the nice professor from Montana simply trying to get a posting somewhere more exciting?
Whatever aliens are and wherever they come from we can conclude two things.
First, they are probably not future editors of Disruptive.Asia and second, we are, without doubt heading into another spell of UFOs, sightings, stories and conspiracy theories.
Warp speed please, Mr Data.
