My brother holds a rather high position in a certain branch of the military. When I shared the whole speculation and conjecture that began this thread he shared this with me:
"Interesting. Even if we consider a generation to be 100 years, that means that there were 750 generations from the time we had chariots and vehicles powered by beast of burden, that means there was 750 generations from humanity knowing how to master the use of fire until the mass production of the combustion engine, and the same generation that supplied us with the combustion engine also supplied us with the experience of walking on the moon. Interesting."
I also asked him a hypothetical question:
Q"Hypothetically, if we were being visited by extra-terrestrials, what do you think their intentions are?"
A"Well, technically they are not extra-terrestrials until they come in contact with the ground, because if they only remain in the air there is nothing whatsoever terrestrial about them. But, hypothetically, if we were to assume time travel is possible, and if we were to assume that any lifeforms anywhere and anytime throughout the existance of the entire universe were to simultaneously exists and achieve/accomplish time travel, then, hypothetically, .. . .. . .. .. .. if we were to accept at face value that time travel is possible, and intelligent life anywhere, anytime achieves time travel, then we must accept that we are not only known to them, but they have visited us, hypothetically of course."
Just thought I'd share that with you guys.
