Ancient bacteria can survive nearly half a million years in the harsh, frozen conditions of the Arctic and Antarctic, researchers said Monday in a study that suggests life could exist in Martian permafrost or ice-covered oceans on alien worlds.
Willerslev said the DNA discoveries could offer clues to better understand aging — and point to the best places to look for traces of alien life as well. “When it can live half a million years on Earth, it makes it very promising it could survive on Mars for a very long time,” Willerslev said. “Permafrost would be an excellent place to look for life on Mars.”

From the viewpoint of captains of industry there's no good reason to share with the public knowledge and technology they have gained from alien sources.

In my opinion your OP seems to point towards us all being slaves to a greater intellect. What I feel is that we are being taught - at least by a few of the parties involved, it may be our kids or our kids kids that will understand why - but I remain an optimist.
