From all my years of digging, I'd say there are several un/likely scenarios that could be taking place regarding this phenomena. Yet I'd wager that
these scenarios could also be very much intertwined as well.
1) All man-made technology; since the '40s and on massive black budget programs have been utilized for military and surveillance purposes- trickling
down into civilian hands only rarely. From anti-gravity to advanced cloning, there would be little under the sun that these organizations have not
delved into in order to meet the general criteria for explaining the UFO phenomena.
^ In my opinion, some of this is very spot on, but to what extent I obviously can only speculate! What I would guarantee is, regardless of how
compartmentalized this information and tech could be --- surely these people would view reality in such an advanced way that mankind would be
considered no more than cattle to them. Ahem, looks like there's plenty of evidence for that already.
2) Another civilization has sent out "drones" all across the galaxies, and we are merely one of many sanctuaries for life. Some of us are
occasionally bagged and tagged, but for the most part we server no greater role other than mere curiosity to passer-by, albeit highly advanced ones.
^ This makes a lot of sense to me, but at the same time it doesn't quite "fit the bill". I think there's more to it.
3) Mankind sent out warning shots when we detonated our first bombs- which sent out shockwaves across the neighborhood. Our kindly neighbors,
realizing the kids had found the matches, have been monitoring us ever since. For the most part, their role is non-invasive and they merely observe
us. Blindly we war with eachother, not realizing the possible effects our goings on could have to the rest of the solar system.
4) They are a species that has existed far longer than we have, and are actually not from another planet at all. Confused as ghosts, fairies, and
everything in between- this highly advanced species has been feeding off of us for thousands of years. They run our civilizations, and shepherd us for
their well-being. Perhaps we serve as nothing more than batteries, or conductors for energy.... And simply put, they are harvesting that energy to
prolong their lives or power their crafts.
5) They are the midwives, the wardens. Call it an incubator, call it a prison- mankind as a whole has been grown like a culture on planet earth, among
many other species on earth we have been tailored to evolve in a specific way to suit the needs of our "creators". The aliens keep us in check,
making sure we don't drift too far when we dream (literally and figuratively). I'd call this scenario the "dark city" or "matrix" - where we are
still very much in our infancy as a species, and of course there is an illusive species that has cultivated us to mature in a desired way. Maybe they
are bored and want someone to talk to? Or maybe...
Scenario 6) They are us from the future, and though they can not interfere with history- they can observe and attempt to catalog the history of our
species. Perhaps they have evolved for so long out in space, that they are almost unrecognizable to the human race. Maybe they are here to understand
the nature of the soul.
Then there's one that I really like, where they are actually just a species that is an advanced animal. The most interesting aspect of the UFO
phenomena for me are the "foo fighters", golden orbs. I personally have seen them, and I know many who live in Northern California who have seen
them as well. Interestingly, they seem to reside near oceans. Perhaps these are not crafts at all, but the very entities themselves! Every year we
discover new ways for life to exist, as these years go on we will continue to be humbled by these discoveries. Tardigrades can survive in nuclear
reactors, out in space, deep oceans... So perhaps what we are looking at is a radiation-based lifeform? This could explain the witnesses who have
suffered from radiation poisoning after the sighting.
... So there ya go, my hastilly written rundown on some scenarios that I like to entertain.
I could go on, but what's the point? I'm sure this isn't the first time you've heard of these theories!
