THE INTERNET AND THE ALIENS by Francois de la Chevalerie
The aliens, a once sulfurous theme vampired by grotesque interpretations that, until now, had no established presence. The Internet is an ever
evolving major tool of the post-industrial age. Nothing connects these two subjects except a high-risky hypothesis: with a superior technological
power at their hands, aliens could blow up the network, trapping or destroying the machine, bringing down the global economy.
What a fear !
The fear that uncontrolled forces jostle the Internet is not original. What a good target! Today, the tool is called upon to absorb the memory of
mankind. Already 250 million sites irrigate every aspect of our life, swallowing all personal data, all knowledge. Nobody seems to be able to escape
even the most authoritarian regime. So the network is worthy for an undesirable action. Many are online to burst the system. Hackers? Terrorists?
Dictators? The root name server has already experienced two powerful attacks (in 2002 and 2007). However, human obstruction ability is limited. Behind
the Internet's appearance of democracy, a very happy few hold the keys of the instrument. But the game could be open if an alien force threatens to
neutralize the network.
Inevitably, such an idea will be greeted by shrugs. However, three observations have to be reported.
Born 13.7 billion years ago, the universe is supposed to host 200 billion galaxies. Each one gathers a hundred billion stars, these draining in turn
an undertermined number of planets! Therefore, it would be amazing that intelligence life does not flourish elsewhere.
Due to an incredible series of physicochemical phenomena, until now the Earth was the only planet harboring life in the universe. The presence of
water and oxygen, a certain temperature, its geographical position to the Sun, these are the general conditions which explain the presence of life.
According to an “extremely pessimistic” calculation, even excluding the countless Jovian gaseous planets that do not meet these conditions, those
likely to host life would approach one billion. From this stock, we could eliminate 99%, those bombarded by meteorites or shaken by gas windstorms.
From this figure, let us put aside another 99%, those with a dense carbon dioxide atmosphere or an icy mantle. At the end, the planets sharing the
same general conditions of the earth are somewhat uncountable.
Since 1993, 600 exo planets have been discovered, all belong to the Jovian gaseous category. With improved detection systems, the list should grow
rapidly. However, the hope to make known the existence of ET's in the next few decades is dubious. In addition, because of today's inappropriate
technology to travel at the speed of light, if by chance we happen to suspect life elsewhere, we would be unable to meet them.
The UFO way
So the other way to have an encounter with the ET's could be done through UFO's. Unfortunately the vast majority of the so-called cases reflect
mainly a lack of knowledge of atmospheric physical phenomena. However some situations defy rational analysis. In France, according to the GEIPAN
(Group for the Study and Information on Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena) 28% of them would not find an explanation. A similar figure is found in
other countries. The question is : if the UFO phenomenon really exists, why the aliens do not contact us ? Maybe they do not feel the need? Maybe they
haven’t our logic? Or maybe, the UFOs constitute a first step before a more serious intervention. If one day a confrontation should happen, it could
be done in many ways. A war? A natural disaster? Better yet, taking hold of the Internet is much easier. It could be done in just one click and then
disconnected or placed under control. What a comfortable solution for the unexpected travelers!
The third option is based on the controversial analysis made by Paul Von Ward. According to this former pastor, throughout history, humans have alaway
communicated with advanced beings (gods, angels or spirits) through trance and dreams. He suggests that miraculous events occurring on earth have
their origins elsewhere. According to him, the aliens have already a considerable influence on ours societies, religious, social and economic
structures. If this hypothesis is accepted, the activism of the so-called advanced beings could escalate in the coming decades. Aggravating
circumstances - political (conflicts) and natural (climatic) - could push them to reinforce their involvement on earth. Once again, the Internet
network offers us an unparalleled platform to impose a solution without bloodshed.
How to secure Internet from space invaders ?
Historically, the birth of the Internet was associated with a commitment to safety. In 1962, during the Cold War, the U.S. Air Force created a
military communications network whose aim was to secure the electronic exchange of information between nerve centers in case of a nuclear attack.
Based on a decentralized system, the network should function despite the destruction of one part of the machines. But today the network could be
targeted as a whole. Fearing that prospect, the canvas could be to duplicate the system against possible risks ? Beside the on-line network, the root
name server, another or more would be kept secret. In this case, even if the global economy and our lives are open to the appetite of alien forces,
the vital interests of the Earth would be protected. Moreover, this hypothesis is consistent with the wall of silence that covers information on UFOs
for nearly sixty years.
But because the silence is perhaps the mindset that characterizes supposed extraterrestrials, we do not how they could manage the situation. If fact,
today they say nothing, we know nothing about them.
