What do you think Aliens are?

Figments of our imagination

Yeah, but what exactly does that mean?

I'm leaning towards there are no aliens.

Very possible. Particularly aliens from another planet visiting Earth. That idea originated way back when people didn't understand:

1. Just how insanely, incomprehensively big space is.
2. How it has a pretty absolute speed limit.
3. How our existence is a result of a crazy number of unlikely circumstances.

So even if a creature like of like us managed to evolve on some distant world, it would still have to figure out how to overcome #1 and #2, which could very well be impossible. And if we never, ever interact with them, then they're essentially hypothetical, imaginary, fictional and non-existent.

Aliens are demon, they have no permanent physical existence. Humans are probably the only genuine civilization in the entire universe and their is a battle for our minds going on.
Modern science is showing that the probability of existence of another civilisation in the universe is near 0.

Are you kidding? The Keppler mission showed that there are over a billion candidates for life bearing worlds in this galaxy alone.

That's not to say a high percentage of them will have life, but it would only take a small percentage of them having it.

New physical principles will have to be created in order for ET to exist. Right now the earth and life on it has been proven to be impossible to have emerged with current physical laws..

The only missing component for them to visit us is a faster than light means of travel.

And if they're dedicated enough to their explorations, they might settle for slower than light travel.

UFO are ideas sent to us by quantum demons.
As soon as they are observed competently, they crash because the physics principle they rely upon don't exist (yet).

That would make more sense if they were time travelers. Using technology as yet uninvented.

Nobody knows for sure what the space-time-continuum does in order to preserve its consistency, so some kind of quantum level failure in their (as yet un-invented) engine could be what happens when they are about to change history, or something.

These demons wants to manipulate us into believing that these principles exist so we can create this reality for them.
They don't know what the future will be, so they try different things.
That's why there are so many different types of UFOs.
The military can't recover significant technology from the crashes because of this. This technology is as real as fake ufos you would see on movies.

Or maybe the UFO's come from a wide variety of times and places. And/or from a time when humanity has spread out into the stars as has many very different civilizations built up.

Although you only need look at the current state of national air forces to see a "wide variety" of craft are already in use in our time. From helicopters, to jets, to ... sometimes even zeppelins.

My real suspicion is that any advanced civilization that will meld with technology, but not to explore space. Just send out probes and figure out a way to send information without the limitations of light speed. Much easier then figuring out how transport solid matter at FTL.

In the mean time humans will balance their lives between virtual existence and augmented existence. I also believe there is an existential barrier we would encounter if Alien life and especially advanced Alien life is announced.

If there are thousands of advanced intelligences in the Galaxy, there will likely be in immense physical and social differences that will be almost impossible to traverse. Now imagine that there are trillions of species throughout the universe. The mere specter of it would yield unknown effects on our own advancement. Them being so different, would automatically create an adverse corollary on our part.

Advanced civilizations would have nothing to learn but culture from each other. Considering how humans are still clinging to things like skin melanin content, I doubt we will care about accepting that it’s ok to eat, procreate, # and play music from the same orifice. Or maybe most aliens have black exteriors, emit poison gases and smell like cotton candy and egg rolls. Oh and they could communicate fluid thought half as fast as we do.

Perhaps we would study and find “human” meaning to some of it, but to what end? So I truly believe there isn’t much intergalactic intermingling out there. Species would just create artificial nirvanas and foolishly marvel at all the preposterous oddities existing across the universe.

I also think that the most advanced beings would block others from achieving mastery of all the forces and energies and FTL. Like the actions taken to keep countries from acquiring nuclear weapons.

The latest peak number of people playing Grand Theft Auto V online at one time is more than 100,000 people. That's just one game. If you add up the rest of people playing that and other games either online or offline, then the number must be into the millions.

We don't want to go to Mars. We want to sit in our comfortable chairs with a nice beverage and inhabit virtual worlds where we can do cool stuff and not worry about getting randomly killed by radiation, rocks or any of the other dangers out there in real space.

Maybe aliens would have a stronger sense of wanderlust than we do, but if they're like us and can learn to manipulate our own sensory inputs to live in fake and fun virtual worlds, we're not going to see them much. If at all.

What do you think they are?

I feel some are more Paranormal/Spirit and or Supernatural Energy based (like humans) from regions of Existence where the boundaries between life and death are thin or nonexistent and so they can cross over.

Others I feel are beings created/born/incarnated/genetically designed...

OUTTA BOX some may have advanced into bot forms by transferring their CREATOR Essence or Spirit/Souls into durable bionic-robotic forms or wave energy like Wi-Fi and so can beam in or transmigrate "host"(s) to explore, evaluate/WATCH and potentially interact directly throughout the Universes.

Good question 👍

Similar to asking whether a tree can fall in a forest if there is nobody there to witness it?

Hence the Interdimensional Hypothesis - which is either a valid theory, or simply the last refuge for ufology when all else fails.

I think it's valid, but it's not as sexy for the person in the street compared to old -fashioned nutz n'boltz. And tabloid trash-rags wouldn't even know how to start writing headlines about it.

The abduction phenomenon fascinates me far more than standard UFO reports, but only as part of an IDH. Something is definitely occurring that isn't necessarily physical - it could feasibly fall into the same realm as shared dream imagery, but I think there is far more to it than just that.

Everything is in our minds. We have to trust that. For some reason people need “something” to take the place of the invisible.

Unexplained occurances are constantly interpreted to fill the conscious and subconscious need for finality. This is a crucial evolutionary inheritance. This basis is where we need to start from for truly rational concurrence.

I am thankful that I can even ponder things beyond my immediate horizon.
