The Prime Directive simply is NOT workable nor should it be used.

What do you mean? Can you elaborate?

It must exist.

If faster than light travel is possible, and all the evidence we have regarding the UFO phenomenon and public record documents (MJ 12) suggest in no uncertain terms that it must be

Then here is why there simply must be a "Prime Directive" of some sort..

It is the product of ONLY logic.
No such law could stand,it's far too simplistic and could obstruct a dangerous situation.
ALL one can do is train the leaders correctly so they know what to do out there and can think for themselves or get better candidates.
Grays and their hybrid program would seem a service to self prime directive.

Do you think they would step in and intervene in the event of a global nuclear war?

Do you think they protect us from meteors?

By Prime Directive, I mean to explain why we are not interacting with them overtly, but then again, that doesn't mean to say that interaction or as you point out DNA harvesting might not have taken place.

It's interesting though that the sky isn't filled with them where seeing them coming and going is commonplace.

If there is evidence of aliens and FTL interstellar or intergalactic travel, and if they're making jumps through mapped hyperspace or some such thing to nullify space and time they could just as easily be coming from another galaxy, then there are numerous implications of that in light of the Fermi Paradox (where are all the aliens?), arising from the FACT that malevolent colonization is out of the question - or we would not be here.

Perhaps at that level of technological advance, given that there are so many worlds accessible, even if only a few in any given galaxy, diversity is prized by far higher than global land grabs by cosmic thieves, or maybe the thievery of a world is prohibited and illegal, but by who's authority and what constrains them if that were the case? Is enforcement required by ever-higher powers where it could be said that Civility may be defined as: Consciously motivated organizational behavior, that is ethical in willing submission to a higher power, and if not willing, held in check by those same powers by force.

What might be the universal principal that is of such an indomitable nature that here we sit in an ocean filled with anything and everything under the suns, while remaining forever unmolested?

Or could such a malevolent force be, at this very moment, hurtling earthward, perhaps even on a mission of perceived self-defence under the false assumption that since all evil seems to be emanating from here of all places, that Earth represents the apex and nexus of an evil and wicked power, arriving only to discover that the whole thing is led an old man in a palace in Rome and a Buffoon in Washington.

Maybe their own embarrassment prevents the invasion of Earth, but that, wherever that force of technological might becomes utterly determined to destroy another world or to interfere with another nascent Civilization in a way that would ruin it's innate potential and possibility, they quickly learn the hard way, that such armament would come to the attention of still higher powers still.

I once imagined, and this would make for a great sci-fi story, the very height of alien technological advance hurtling Earthward, only to encounter the very highest power in the form of an impenetrable and in their eyes, an impossible shield that's intelligently controlled, that can first repel anything they can throw at it, and then, seal them off and swallow them up in an inexplicable black hole, an event that didn't go without notice via Ansible quantum communications with the home world, who might then proceed to build up armaments for their next go, only to note the formation of an impossible black hole within their own system.

And all the while they think to themselves - OMG, are those Earthlings ever powerful!

"And the last shall be first, and the first, last."
~ Spoken from the mouth of the son of God Almighty.

Oh the irony of it all.

At the height of the standard of Civility and Justice, hung an innocent man between two thieves, to save the world and to protect us from all predation, where instead of eat or be eaten it's "here, eat of me" instead.

I know just speculating, but for me anyway, it rings true to a certain playful sense of mirth and irony possessed by God in the whole set up.

And when we become shielded with love for one and all, we too will take to the stars, but God help us if we treat the universe the way we did Iraq, then the tables could be turned.

An "act as if" policy of non-intervention must be adopted, imho, to avoid some pretty horrific implications, including the democratic green lighting of the destruction of human civilization, if we're not careful.

And if they've been helping to shield us from meteor impacts, I think we could lose that kind of protection if we start creating human-animal hybrids for example.

The problem with the human species is, anything we can do we will, inevitably do.

As aliens wait patiently, to move into their new world...

The most powerful force in the universe has already been discovered, it's called evolution.

You don't need a civilisation behind you to spread across the universe, you just need a means of reproduction and a way to move around.

Something like a space adapted microbe could spread through the entire galaxy efficiently.

No cilivsation required.

Great post.

Just an FYI, the author of the alien franchise, in Prometheus wanted to subtly argue that Jesus was actually an engineer sent to try and fix humanity. That failed mission was the reason for the engineers wanting to black goo earth.


Jesus was an ET, like other past messiahs.

Maybe everything you say is true and the order of hybridizations are the orders of angels from sacred texts.

I've considered that the sacred texts might in and of themselves form a type of transluminal communications channel, with the aim of saving the world without requiring any hardware or military might or intervention.

I also imagine various off-world entities as agents of God's will, either wittingly or unwittingly.

That said I don't think that Jesus got beamed up into a spaceship or that he "twinned". lol
