I don't want to get too deep into this and ruin the thread with my opinions…
…perhaps on some off chance, the greys have other forms of manipulating instruments? The need for opposable thumbs would vanish if they had somehow learned to control electronics with their minds, or made the machines simplistic enough so as to allow manipulation of the machine without the need for a thumb.
These are just my ideas. No proof, just conjecture.
With greys, the cloning seems the most likely because the do interface with their advanced psi abilities with their equipment…
…and they're specialized, there are tasks that they alone do, compared to other species.
I've recalled one of my bizarre accounts of an event and as-if waking in the middle of it and seeing regular people using fake alien props and pawing at me.
It could have also been done purposely to make me think that way to cover up something else.
I recall having once seen what was basically a box of alien looking hands or 'props' with tags and writings of the species it came from.
My best guess is that this is someone's special effects/ illusions techniques.
An Advanced Race, curtailed by their own Einstein's Theory decide to send manned probes to explore the Cosmos. They know that Physics precludes any journey by themselves. Generations would live and die on any ships they sent etc. They design a creature that can take to the stars and be programmed to carry out exploration of any life-sustaining Planets they find.
They would be given just enough intelligence to carry out the task.
Opposable thumbs could be unnecessary for such expeditions.
Beamish, great thread and a Very interesting observation you have brought out that i was not aware of. so thank you and it is something to think about even if it's speculation because it could be of importance.
i have always thought the Grey Aliens were creating Hybrids to become more like us…so my question is: do the reported Grey Hybrid children have a Thumb ?

Kandinsky, thank you for such an erudite, gloriously speculative and balanced reply.
