I'm not intending this to be some big info dump on my part;
rather I'd like this to be a place where this very important,
but stringently ignored topic can be discussed.
I'm not wishing to shove any of my strong 'opinions' down
anyone's throat. I really want a discussion.
There are a few very big questions that seldom get asked,
just like down through the ages, the most important
questions seldom get asked, as folks tend to wrap
themselves in a bubble of assumption when their sense
of self / world-view is threatened.
Let's start with a thought experiment; let's say humans
invented easy/cheap/compact fusion power, and a good
collection of star ship systems, so that we could reliably
visit relatively nearby star systems, that for purposes
of this thought experiment are civilized with intelligent
Would humans build 7 billion different types of spacecraft,
some purple, some as large as the moon, some that look like
horses, some that look like a tuna sandwich?
or would they build the same basic model?
They would build the same basic model.
When the aliens on that nearby world saw the human
ships, what would they see?
One might think, that yes, there could be some bias,
but overall, one might imagine they would see some
relatively boring hunk of metal.
They wouldn't see humans offering them a pancake,
asking for a drink of water in return, would they?
We aren't weird quantum/energy creatures.. we are
lumps of dirty water, with relatively simple tools.
(actually we are more than that.. but that's a
different topic.. we can go with this for now)
Or yes, maybe they would see all the same garbage
Next thought experiment.
If 'ships' have been visiting us for thousands of years,
then why in one age do people see horses and riders
in the sky.. flying sheep.. faries.. demons.. and now
people see 'ships'.
If it's always been ships.. why haven't people always
seen ships? (the ancient aliens arguments fall apart
if you study any of them.. so the retort that yes,
there was a ship in this pyramid wall, or whatever
they ALWAYS fall apart).
Oh sure, you can mangle the narrative if you want to..
saying that the aliens in their ships use holographic
systems to cloak themselves..
but if that's the case..
why have their been so many cases, where two people
stand shoulder to shoulder, where one person sees
on thing, while the other person might see nothing
or something 100% different?
Holograms don't work that way..
If one insists on the ships and beings thing, at this point
you'd have to postulate global-level simultaneous
mechanical telepathy.. so everyone in the world might
see something different simultaneously.
Does that make sense?
Now.. there's lots to discuss on this topic, I'm not going
to try for some huge multi-part wall of text.
Personally I'm open to any response that postulates
something reasonable.. and in fact... if someone were
to say that we are experiencing 'many worlds bleed-through'
and yes, those ships were really 'shippish' we could certainly
discuss that. I think it would fall apart, but we could discuss
Thanks for your participation!
