if a computer program we created was smart enough…..would it think its existence is special like we think ours is……
We could go on for millions of years in the future pondering our purpose…..just to one day find out we’re just a simulation…..a program…..would we start mass suicides….or even care about law……
I’m guessing in that case we’re just machines serving some greater purpose for our creators….
They might not even think they are special themselves or place any value on life.
I think this is exactly why we aren't being told about the aliens right now.
Why would the aliens go to all the trouble of creating such a complex bio-machine? What are they trying to achieve? What can we do that they can't or don't want to?
One thing I thought of was mining for rpecious metals. Maybe this is why money is not based on gold anymore because the aliens ahve slowwly been skimming it for the last century of so. Maybe we are just slave laborers here to strip the planet of its minerals. Everything else we do is just a side show, and our own support network to take care of ourselves while the job gets done.
The answer is simple, we get water from water in the earth, we get food from the earth, we get air from the atmosphere, we get sun from the sun.
