Here is a really cool video on YouTube:



For those of you who cannot view YT check the bottom of the thread (CAUTION:Spoilers for those that are going to watch the video).

Some people went around shooting random strangers in the UV spectrum. What's cool about this is obviously it's a glimpse into another way of seeing the world around us. Who are we to say that we see the world as it should be? We simply see it the way we see it. Another alien species could be seeing the word like in this video.

So they shoot people in the UV spectrum (the one that damages your skin) and it becomes apparent when people have skin damage, Freckles, spots and indents can be seen that are either absorbing or reflecting varying rates of UV light.

Pretty neat!

Now, for those of you that are going to watch the video, do it now before reading any more.




When they got people to put on sunscreen, something else happens. People's faces go entirely black. The sunscreen is blocking the UV radiation, and in so, blocking what you can see from those people.

Now imagine another species from another world and that they only see in UV light or Infrared light, and to them we would be the weird ones. I wonder then, would we be able to see them? perhaps they could wander amongst us and we'd have no idea.p

I still don't understand. Why would we not be able to see them?

Did you see their teeth?

This is really cool. They have this available at children's museums. I remember doing it s a child. I have freckles so I wasn't too surprised.

K, well I kicked with a SnF. I've always felt the acne we
experience in our youth, is hidden just under our skin as
continue thru life.
I wonder if that's also what may be showing up here?

We see things in a certain spectrum of light, while most physical things can be seen in at least one of what we see in, it's not totally absurd to think that maybe there is something out there which can't be seen in our viewable spectrum. There is plenty of stuff we don't see.

That was the idea anyway...

Well we do see skin. So in order for aliens to be invisible they would have to not absorb or reflect anything in our spectrum. This is more an indicator that aliens may not see the Universe as we see it .. not an indicator they would be invisible. There are many creatures on Earth that view the world different than us, but they are all (mostly all) visible to us.

The only way Aliens would be invisible would be if light passed through them. Them viewing in a different spectrum than us would make that less likely actually, not more likely.

That's... perfect. Thank you.

Yes, precisely. I guess it's whether or not you are willing to hypothesize that there could be non-corporeal beings in the universe. Or if life can be given alternative definitions.

Just recently a discovery on rna showed that plants communicate with each other at the cellular level.

Oh well, I was just trying for a fancy title, sorry if it got too metaphysical for everyone...

Non corporeal would mean no body .. I think if aliens exist they may be very different than us, but I imagine they will have a body.

What does a snake "see", what does a shark "see" .. I often wonder just how they experience the world around them.

When I saw that "black" that results in smearing sunscreen on your face, I was blown away. Being a white person, I am now envious of the beautiful complexions of those who are not.

Off topic but not really, is this the same principle regarding our ability to see ufos?

Thankyou for posting this

If you can't see a UFO how would you know it's there?

Just to be clearer, nothing is invisible here, any more than black people are invisible.

Having read recently about your profession on an ATS thread about same where you indicated what you do for a living, surely my question is not uncommon.

In my opinion, extraterrestrial visitors may utilize a number of measures to either verify or cast doubt on their presence.

Right...." I'll be back in a bit I'm going to visit the humans".

"take you're sunscreen so they don't see you!"

How much more retarded can things get

Not exactly.
The sunscreen is absorbing UV radiation, just as the dark spots on skin are.

What we are seeing is UV wavelengths being reflected to the camera or not. Dark spots are absorbing UV, light areas are reflecting UV.

Why not?
It's an explanation of what is being seen and how sunscreen works. If aliens absorb UV we would see a bunch of "shadows" walking around.

I agree, they could. It's actually my logic test for why I believe we are not being visited.

They either want to remain unseen, or they do not care if they are seen.

If they want to remain unseen the level of technology required to get to Earth would mean they would be unseen.
If they do not care if they are seen they would make no attempt to remain hidden and would be seen and verified by all of Earth.

Better explanation, thanks.

That was not what the OP was getting at.
