Scenarios – How Could ET Information Or Technology Be Released To Public?

It seems many people claim to be contacted by ETs and state they are given a ‘message’ to relay to the world; it further seems that none are ever given useful information or technical knowledge that may be documented, proven as such, or implemented. Unusual.

Consider this scenario: An alleged contactee is actually given useful information or technology by an ET. The desire is to make this information or technology available to the general public; however, the contactee is a ‘man on the street,’ one without any special skills or extraordinary financial position.

This technology could be anything – method of eliminating cancer, inexpensive energy source, Star Trek-variety food replicator, etc. - doesn’t matter what it is. Additionally, let us accept that the information, technology, and/or design would require (as is true with all new technologies) development of new machinery, parts, methods of implementation, etc. In other words, we would have to build something not presently existing. Time consuming and expensive.

The problem becomes how to assure this is released to the people fully and at reasonable costs. The individual with the new information does not have the resources to quietly and privately produce these items. He or she can not simply go to the government or any multinational corporation because, if even believed, the product would either most probably be stolen or disappear for a time (research, design, development, testing, evaluation, marketing) before being released (if at all) on an extremely limited and high-cost basis, ultimately not benefiting as it should. The contactee can not just post the information on the internet for the same reasons – it is unlikely anyone with the requisite skills and financial resources will A.) believe the item is genuine; B.) understand how to develop and implement such knowledge; C.) be willing to development such project on a ‘cost’ or limited-return basis for the overall good of humanity; or, D.) the myriad of other obstacles.

The question up for discussion is simply this: If the usual ‘man on the street’ should actually receive useful technology from an ET, how could he or she most reasonably and successfully assure that it be disseminated to the whole of humanity?

Note: First thread. Please bear with me and excuse any errors. Thanks.

I seriously doubt E.T. will willingly give give us any advanced technology which can be turned against them.

How about governmental interests? their power and influence will fade as individuals become more independent through technology.

We can't depend on government or E.T. for disclosure on advanced tech. However, there are many military and civilian witnesses that have come forward with crucial pieces of the puzzle where energy is concerned. I believe we should look to nature and physics in analyzing the puzzles.

As for dissemination; what better method is there than the Internet? Go open source and share it online. If the "device" has merit (video evidence is great proof) other experimenters will build it. An additional benefit is protection from powerful interests that seek to quash such technologies.

Hi


The problem here is the media still make out ET contact as a joke. If you contacted your local paper or TV station I doubt theyd really take you seriously. Theyd run the story out of interest really and print some silly alien picture next to your picture, much like they do with robbie Williams.

If you tried to contact some scientific lab as soon as they saw it worked theyd all be falling out over who had the rights to it and how much money they could make. I work in a lab and I know this sort of stuff goes on ALL the time. They forget that the descovery could change millions of lives they just end up fighting over whos name goes on the patent. I find it really sad sometimes especially if its medical treatment or something along those lines.

Its sad but true this is why the aliens themselves need to hand it over on mass.

Good thread.

If E.T. has given our government any sort of tech, I bet we use some of it and don't even realize it. We have a lot of tech that's pretty nifty after all. I'm sure they would never give us A. A super weapon or B. A means of interstellar travel.

Plus another thought is they gave him that tech thinking that he would tell someone they would believe him and it would go into use simply because their society probably does not function like ours. They might not even have money!
I know crazy huh......

I agree - and the most mundane thing could be in some way used for a weapon. My musing is only based on a 'what if' situation, admittedly one unlikely to occur.

I don't really see that as the case, at least with any technological advances to happen over the next few years. Typically, the greater the technology, the greater the infrastructure required to maintain it.

The internet is probably the most practical means in the event of a scenario as suggested; however, it leaves much to be desired. The problems with it stated in the original post make me believe there may be a better way. It's those suggestions this thread may hopefully bring forward.

Undoubtedly. I think it would probably be in the best interest of getting the technology out to make no statement as to its origin. Neither UFOs nor aliens need be mentioned.

This is probably the crux of the problem - and exactly the sort of thing I'm looking for suggestions to avoid.

That certainly would be the ideal situation, but unfortunately, it doesn't seem likely at the moment. My wondering is based more on the possibility of a contactee receiving some tangible information as opposed to a more typical esoteric message.

I know if I were to be given something of this sort, I would have absolutely no idea how to safely get it out and into use.

Thanls for the comments.

I think it already has through sceience fiction programs and movies. Most people may not realize they are seeing some type of disclosure while others may try to prove it it disprove it. MIB mentioend tabloids as sources for information.

Yes, reverse engineering or slow introduction of the more minor, but useful, direct technologies. That could indeed be the game plan if the knowledge were taken over in whole by the government or major international corporations. And that might be o.k. - at least it would be getting out eventually. The problems are that it would be getting out much too slowly and perhaps not to all who should benefit by it.

On the other hand, suppose this was a method of eliminating cancer or some other similar disease. There are theories of coming depopulation - should that be true, would a technology to prolong life be released?

I do not subscribe to that particular theory, but I've been wrong before. I do personally believe that we have the technology already available today to combat many worrisome diseases.

I would think that a civilization with the type of advanced technology being discussed would have researched where it was going a bit; however, as you say, who can know how another thinks and what simple mistakes might be made due to cultural differences?

Not even have money? If they're smart, they don't.

Quite an excellent idea! Oddly, as much science fiction as I read, one I had not even considered for these purposes. It would take a while to enter the mainstream, but could be a worthwhile jumping-off place to other areas of introduction.

I was not aware of suggestions that tabloids have been used in that way - does make sense, though.

First of all....GREAT first-time thread....and you already know how to use the 'quoty' thingies!!!

I've thought, for some time, about the concept of 'reverse-engineering' technology.

To use a simple analogy, imagine a time-machine, and the Wright Brothers.

Barely a hundred years, and look what has been accomplished.

Now, take the time-machine and use it to bring the Wright Brothers to today, and invite them to 'reverse-engineer' a modern jetliner.

So many factors....metallurgy, rubber, electronics.....stuff the Wrights knew NOTHING about, in their day....

It is similar to the topic of this thread. How, without context, can the info be disseminated to a population that can't comprehend the science behind it??

It's like giving a loaded gun to a schoolchild......

Youtube also seems to be a very popular and quicker place to share this information. ATS now has their own video service which is likely to be more secure.....I guess.

You've placed it into a much better perspective than I. This really is the point of this thread - the amount of time and money it would take to even bring such knowledge or design to fruition is staggering. Seems to me to be way too much for an individual (or group) whose main intent was to get it out.

And thanks for the kind words.

Yes, as a second line strategy probably a combination of those you mentioned and any other that could be found would definitely be worth considering.

Oh come on the poor guy is obviously a
Chinese stooge laugh it off already


Ok maybe you're not here you go take a gander at this I worked on it myself.
