Thank you for clarifying and pointing out all of these wonderful uses for gold. That said, you have apparently left-out why it is rare on Earth and
in our galaxy and so can be considered very valuable literally all over the place. I'll paste below some paragraphs from an article I finished about a
month ago on gold.:
Gold is rare in the galaxy but it is relatively abundant on Earth, so it should be no wonder that we are very popular with alien species.
think it is foolish for ufology to discount this as it is possibly foundational in understanding why tens of thousands of ufo's have been witnessed in
large numbers in modern times and infrequently in our ancient past. The hard metal may be the motivation for many of our credible ufo sightings, and
offer an explanation for why sightings occur more often in rural regions than over cities, because the process may require the craft to remain
stationary for long periods of time (in minutes) and it is safer to hover over sparsely populated areas, and because scanning deep below the earth is
not restricted by human structure if mining in rural areas, or under the ocean. Hundreds and thousands of miles deep in the Earth, consistent with
known physics of the elements and of early planet formation, there should be boulders of gold the size of small mountains. Because in our molten
stage, which lasted about five hundred million years, larger and denser objects of matter sink to the center of the new molten planet while lighter
collections of the same matter are left at our surface and in the many miles below the surface.
That would be typical of known metals in many if
not all proto-planets in a molten state. Which is why small and relatively light stringy veins of heavy metal is all of the precious metals that we
find near the surface, where humans have greedily picked on their hands and knees for centuries.
Gold is scattered throughout the universe sparsely in select solar systems which were lucky enough to have been born from a star which created the
metal (and silver and titanium as far as we know), by a process which occurs at the center of a dying star which is within seconds of becoming a super
nova, and in our case specifically a type 1-A hyper-nova (a binary (2) star system event that in it's death gave birth to this solar system). We and
all we are exist because of the unique fusion formula within a certain sized star, of a certain density which is rare in the galaxy. Because most
stars do not super nova at their death (our star Sol is not expected to super nova), only some infrequently discovered systems will contain gold.
That's us, we are the lucky gold recipients in our distant corner of the Milky Way. It is estimated that a super-nova occurs once or twice in one
in our small to medium sized galaxy. Our astronomers have only photographed the after-math, years after, of visible gasses from one
super nova in our lifetime thus far (super nova 1987A). Conceivably a space traveling race of peoples may know about gold and may not. Because that
space traveling species could "fly-by" thousands and thousands of star systems and not one of them will contain gold!
But it only takes one
discovery, one time, to begin a rumor among interstellar travelers and create an alien gold-rush. And greed is a whole new factor which can motivate
humans to do immoral and desperate things, and may motivate other species like-wise.
In our future the precious and dense shiny metal may be the cause of the end of us all. To a malevolent advanced species we would be as flies dodging
in front of their faces and interfering with operations annoyingly. They would just wipe us out. They would explode the planet and proceed to beam the
gold they want out of the debris of our planet and our insignificant primitive lives will probably be terminated very quickly, without suffering. I
suspect the often envisioned science fiction creation called molecular transport is used currently by the many inexplicable and unidentifiable craft
that so many decent people have witnessed. Molecular transport is not only quick but because of it's atom by atom ability, the gold will be pure when
it materializes in the cargo hold, very efficient. "Beaming-up" a cargo hold full of gold is probably no more effort than a human going to the
convenience store. Don't snicker, molecular transport is almost here: photos, atomic force microscope, atoms into structures.
