Yes, the idea is somewhat fascinating and makes a lot of sense to me. Given the time it would take to "explore" the universe in the conventional
sense, why wouldn't an advanced race engineer machines to seek out natural resources, replicate themselves, and rather than "explore", spread out
and "monitor" likely places where intelligent life might develop.
What if that is the case? Lets assume these are machines designed to "awaken" when they sense that a race has evolved to a technological degree
that warrants attention. When our planet ever so loudly announced that it has nuclear weapons, the probes awoke, contacted the "homeworld" and then
the actual 'scouts' came.
The machines may also have left markers for the scouts -- maybe in the form of crop circles?
There are so many aspects of ufology that this would explain, it's hard to state a complete theory... but the real question is this -- if these are
machines designed to take notice of certain things and feed off of natural resources, then they are physical objects that can be captured and
How do we catch one?
Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?
