One thing that never quite sat right with me in these theories of ancient visitations was that they apparently came to earth for Gold. Why Gold? Gold
is only worth something because we humans put a value on it, I found it ignorant to assume that other non-Earth originated species would want anything
to do with our gold, and certainly would not come to Earth looking for it.
Before I go on, let's concur that space travel requires a LOT of energy, to the point where our current science cant explain where such UFOs would
get it from. Correct? One of the theorised solutions would be the use of antimatter.
But how do you create and collect antimatter?
Apparently, you use GOLD.
Blasting a gold target with high-powered lasers creates huge amounts of antimatter, reported scientists from the Lawrence Livermore National
Laboratory at a conference last week.
So what if they indeed did come to earth to mine Gold, but not for any purposes we identify with, but for fuel?
Or what if they didnt even come to Earth for that purpose, but Earth was just a pit stop, a gas station, on their way somewhere else?
We've always asked, if they visited us, what made us so significant? Maybe we werent, maybe we were just convenient. I certainly dont find the gas
station clerk significant on the way to work. Are we arrogant in thinking they visited us for us? Maybe they just wanted to fill up their ships on
their way elsewhere and interacting with us was just a by product and really didnt mean much to them, thus they arent bothered in returning.
Fuel for thought. Pun intended.
