hehe, your post made me want to make a few postulations.
With recent past discoveries of possible nuclear ancient civilizations ... it is fully possible we have rendered the planet useless for long periods
of time already. We have so little understanding of stuff even a couple thousand years ago, most of it is based on assumptions from 'educated'
people ... the problem is, they are educated in a biased system. For the past, anything is truly possible.
Let us take that last statement a bit further. Discoveries of metal work in coal and rock.
It is possible, that some Earthlings/Terrans/whatever ... may already be a part of that space society, or are the society themselves. They may not
look like us because of time and surroundings being different. There has been an anime I made a thread about that puts this idea out there in a vague
way. What if the aliens are actually us, we left the blue planet in search of life in our part of the galaxy, then we came back, only to find that
society has been destroyed a few times over, and they forgotten all about the past space explorations. Now, those would be aliens to their own planet
and resisted by government and denied access (peacefully) to the planet.
If there are ships the size of earth ... then, I guess we don't have to worry much about an asteroid hitting us? I am sure they could deflect it
into the sun or permanently out of our solar system if they so chose to. But ... would they? Maybe an advanced civilization knows, you cannot mess
with how things are suppose to happen, because it can have worse consequences later on, even if it is millenia in the future.
Maybe the reason all these sighting happen is to get us accustomed to them. A lot of them could be unmanned ships ... just like we have now, but
much more advanced AI. Abductions could have been a necessary evil to test our abilities to exist on other planets, understand our biology to better
help us, or use our DNA to save their lineage.
I agree, most of the humans are still savages. Just read the board and see how many people drool over war, enjoy hate, etc. It sickens me quite a
There probably are malevolent beings, but, they may have their own set of rules for m.a.d. ... or the good ones may just be much more powerful. I
would think the bad ones would have make much mor havoc by now.
It is odd, when you notice how many alien shows have been on in the last decade ... and how many of the older shows are coming back. I would think
people are just about desensitized enough to accept whatever ... and we have become stagnant. With the hate ... I think a majority of the
population has become sick of it. I think this current 'war' is pushing some people towards the brink of understanding to accept our differences
and realize that is what makes us all the same.
I think, unless the 'aliens' want slaves, if there becomes a evil NWO, or there is a certain line crossed ... they will finally step in and save us
from those corrupt. There will be resistance, there will be losses. I think in the end, it should be beneficial for the common person. When true
colors are shown, you know where you stand. Governments can only exhibit control when the people feel helpless. When people support each other, the
government ends up being just a small group of morons who thought they had power and control. Not all gov't is bad, not all people intend good. But
overall, I think we have a positive future, even if it takes a horrific start to make the change.
Just think of being on a ship like that ... as you travel, you can develop and expand. They are big enough to have the world's population aboard.
Labs, experiments, developments, entertainment ... they would have everything we know and more ... if it is something they care for.
I think people would have less fear than you imagine. I think they would be awestruck, then, there might be a calming and enlightening of most
people. I think a lot of the stress and frustration is because people sit with such acute tunnel vision in their lives. Open their minds and take
away this need for greed (those with the most toys win attitude) ... and you have more of a peaceful existence. Not all would succumb, but a lot
would. Take away money, and people go after their dreams, not for 'success'.
I think you don't even need to have aliens come for this to happen. Take people out and have them look through the stars with powerful telescopes.
If people started seeing the galaxies with their own eyes and not pictures and videos, it seems to have a lot more impact on their lives. People are
desensitized to the pictures and videos now, because movies and tv have special effects that wow them ... but ... when you see these things on a
clear, dark night, it is real.
Most of what I wrote is opinions and conjecture, since, predicting human response is near impossible, but I try to be more positive for the most part.
That is why I liked how that anime dealt with it all ... it was something I thought people at ATS would like a lot, it seems that was not the case.
I found the alien/secret government/etc. under story to be intriguing as an ATS member, and since I like the silly light-hearted anime, the main story
I enjoyed as well. Mahoromatic is the title, if you are interested. If any of you do watch it, just leave your thought of it on my thread.
Otherwise ignore this part.
O.P. ... you get a flag for bringing the topic up and helping me see pictures I never had before ... which kudos goes to all of you with
pictures/picture links. I love looking at the stars and planets, even without there being 'spacecraft' in the images.
