What if aliens aren't as technologically advanced as we think?

is it possible the aliens are only slightly more advanced than we are?


Looking at how the " Tic-Tac " UFO performed, i would so they are certainly far more advanced they we are.

Being more advanced in one area doesn't mean you are more advanced in all areas. That's what I'm getting at.

Clearly their space propulsion technology exceeds ours.

But their computer technology, for example, might not. What if it turns out when we meet them that they still consider a 400 megabyte hard drive to be "state of the art" for a personal computer?

I thought that this was coming knowledge?

A lot of encounter reports described ufo as having rivets and dials as well as old fashioned switches and controls. They only started describing things like touch screens in the 1980s. Which is clear evidence that they are advancing in technology as we watch, if they were much further ahead of us we would we would have seen touch screens in old close encounters.

I've often wondered if maybe aliens really are in control of our governments, and using Earth as a technology farm.

Encouraging our population to grow to an unsustainable level, and then guiding industry down a narrow technological path to get us to push a technology further for them. That way they can use our 7 billion minds to perform research, while their own population remains much smaller (like maybe 7 million.)

It's an interesting possibility. (They, of course, make sure to keep us away from important technology, like warp drives and stuff...)

Anything able to come here, alive, through the vast distances of space regardless of time is smarter then us by a long shot.

Then there is nothing to fear from an alien invasion.

Well they might be less advanced than us in some areas but they would have to have a huge advancement in interstellar travel. Even if they do not reach FTL, they still have a way of crossing huge distances and arriving alive at the destination. We can't even manage to get out of our own solar system efficiently with remote probes, not even starting with human travel.

And as we know technology breeds technology, so their interstellar travel tech would lead to a lot of advancements in different similar areas which in turn would lead to advancement in other areas etc... That is why I would sat that if they do not come from our solar system, or inner earth (joke ), then they are definitely a lot more advanced than us.

I'd say there is no right or wrong for this answer. It has always been theorized that if a traveler from galaxies away can make it to Earth, then they would have to be more technologically advanced than us. That isn't always the case. As we know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Yes, their means for transportation may seem advanced, but if we were to visit their civilization, we may find that their day to day lives are at a minimalist state. Different species have be just as advanced as they need to be in order to live on their planets. Unless someone of a higher technological state visits or trades with them; they may seem very normal to someone of the same technological level.

Now if your talking about the Lemurians; then I'd say that they are much more technologically advanced than what we are. The reason we may notice this upon contact is because they are of a human origin. So it's believed that they eat, sleep and enjoy things similar to us. Inside a city like Telos, a person would be in total "Oooooo and Awwww". Having advanced medical cures that allow you to reach over a 500 year life span would be the equivalent feeling of your first high school crush. Then there's the food. Advanced farming that produces food in it's purity, so that we're not eating a tone of chemicals would definitely feel nourishing. Then there's the entertainment. Most of us would be fine using the Holodeck to go on a space adventure or a casual date with the girl next door.

I believe we are very close to this day.
