Science does in fact support the idea that we should be, in theory at least, currently experiencing visitation from extraterrestrial
I must admit, I am beginning to feel as if I'm getting hybrid-mileage out of the following reference:
Space.com: "ET Visitors: Scientists See High Likelihood"
This was published in the technical journal of the world's oldest scientifc organization dedicated to astronomical studies. The most current
"best-estimates," when plugged into Drake's equation, yield a theoretical result of 10,000
civilizations in existence in the Milky Way
. A simple search on the "COMETA Report," or other pre-existing available government references will in fact turn up a wealth of
documentation to support this. And to boot, many easy-to-find references to these documents may be easily found here on ATS.
A quick glance through any valid subset of the 25,000+
reports available in NUFORC's
web-hosted database will support the 30% historical unexplained rate. BTW, that would equate to at least
7,500 unexplained sightings. Now, if
of these did in fact represent a valid sighting or contact with an extraterrestiral technology or intelligence, then yes
are indeed currently
experiencing extraterrestrial visitation.
There are approximately 6,000,000,000 people on earth. If one accepts the above assertion, then one accepts that existence of an event that had only
(.00004) chance of occuring (if only one of the 25,000 reported sightings in NUFORC's databased represents a valid sighting).
It is worth noting that the accepted ratio of unreported sightings to reported sightings is 10:1. That would translate to (approx.) 250,000
Now, the real question is, what probability can one assign to an individual undergoing and sustaining contact with advance extraterrestrial
intelligences? In other words...
How many people are in contact with extraterrestrials?
At first, one may think it impossible to ever quanitfy such an answer. However, we can get at least some
idea by quantifying the number of
"best-case" abductions that have taken (and some would say still taking) place in the U.S.
Regardless of whether or not one agrees with the postulations put forth with regards to alien motives, IMHO the most objective and scientific approach
to date of the abduction has been conducted by
Dr. David M. Jacobs,
. I stringly reccomend his books on the subject to anyone
interested in the subject -- skeptic or believer, who prides themselves on
being an objective critical thinker
Among the data presented in his work is the results from a Roper poll conducted in 1991. Roper polls sample a random sample population of the country
large enough to constitute a statistically valid sampling. In this particular poll, 5,947 individuals were randomly polled across the country -- this
yielded an arror range of only 1.4% Among the findings:
had awakened paralyzed with a strange figure in the room.
had experienced missing time.
had seen "unusual lights" in the room.
had seen a UFO.
said the word "trondant" held a special significance for them.
The last one is particularly interesting, as it was a "control" question intended to identify respondents who had a proclivity towards answering
positively to answers. All respondents who asnwered "yes" to this question had their questionnaires eliminated from inclusion in the final
In short, analysis of the findings indicated that as many as two percent
of Americans may be abductees -- that would be approx. 5,000,000
people. And as stated in Dr. Jacobs presentation of the study, even if this estimate was 75%
higher than the actual rate of occurrence, we are
still talking about over one million
Americans alone who may be abductees.
Think about that... If we accept a rate of occurrence just 25%
of what the actual data suggests, we're still talking about .5% of the
population... Over 30,000,000 worldwide
. This translates to a .005 probability (1-in-200) that any one person is expriencing ongoing
contact with an extraterrestrial intelligence.
By comparison, the probability of getting struck by lightning in one's lifetime is .000012 (1-in-83,930). The probability (with one ticket) you will
win the Mega Lottery is .0000000074. The odds of dying in a flood are 1-in-30,000 (.000033 probability), yet we have witnessed two tragedies in the
last year that have taken the lives of many in this very tragic manner.
By comparison, the odds of experiencing ongoing alien contact -- only 1-in-200 -- seem almost probable
We must learn to recognize what we do not know -- to "know what you don't know"
Lastly, I would like to briefly mention that as per quantum field theory, Superstring
postulates the existence of 11 dimensions. We only exist in 4-space (3-space + time). So what the hell is going on in the other
dimensions around us?
Truth of the matter is that the sum total of what we know
as a species pales in comparison to what we're yet to learn
So... if we accept the theoretical possibilities as put forth by modern science
1. There may be as many as 10,000 civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy alone
2. Mathematical models indicate is is "highly likely" we are currently experiencing visitation
3. It may be estimated that at least
30,000,000 indivudals across the world are experiencing ongoing alien contact
4. The sum total of knowledge we are yet to learn vastly outweighs that which we already know,
then isn't it theoretically possible
that someone may be experiencing contact exactly
as he or she states?
in possession of a critical thought process will instantly recognize the difference between belief
and the acknowledgment
It is a real shame to see some members of this board so casually dismiss the theretical possibilities (as represented by the claims of others) in
favor of needless personal provocation (that does nothing to further the discussion), such as the provocation endured by ES. These are the same few
who so easily try to convolute theroretical possibilities with belief.
I guess one's seniority does not necessarily equate to civiility.
So You Want to Know the Truth?
Then search. Seek it yourself. Read everything you can on the subject. Learn to meditate, as this is the first step to connecting with unknown
skills and possibilities. Read up on Scientific Remote Viewing. After all, the brain is the most powerful computer in the known universe. An
article in the Jan. '05 issue of Scientific American discusses the computing power of the human brain. Did you know the computing power of a Sony
PS2 is equal to that of a guppy
; though you'll have to buy
the back issue if you want to see the viewgraph)
It is estimated that by 2020, the processing power of the fastest personal computers will approach that of a cat
Yes, the human mind is a pwoerful tool indeed, as learned by
Dr. Bernie Siegel, MD
, an oncologist at John Hopkins.
That was another clue for the clueless, BTW.
So if you really
want to know the truth, go seek it for yourself, for I believe it is out there to be found. And "there" is a big, big
place, so there's no better time to begin than the present.
