That’s an interesting premise, and one that I hadn’t heard of before. Star and flag for bringing it up.
I especially find the idea of a long-gone civilisation’s sentient space probes (what we would call Greys, maybe) still functioning long after their
creators stopped receiving their transmissions particularly poignant.
If we accept it as possible, even transpiring in one form or another right now, how would this hypothesis go towards explaining some of the current
UFO sightings and related occurrences?
Abduction; are we simply seeing the mechanical repetition of robotic/biomechanical probes in action, as they gather psychological and physical data on
each species encountered? They send the data home, but receive no response; would their programming therefore dictate that the data they have gathered
is not sufficient, or that the signal somehow became corrupted or lost? Either way, would this mean that they would then follow internal protocol and
persist with the same mission until they hear different?
Could this explain the recurring themes in abduction?
And would the surgical procedures happening in cattle mutilations also be connected? How many cored rectums, eyes and internal organs do they need
before understanding their function and physiology completely? With no feed-back from home stating that specific criteria have been met, they just
UFO crashes; simply evidence of now failing, ancient machinery becoming unable to perform correctly? Can we see the bizarre, bouncing manoeuvres of
some discs as nothing more than misfires in their propulsion units? And when the time comes, are they programmed with some form of primary function to
self-destruct by impact if self-diagnosed as being beyond repair, so to avoid handing advanced technology to more primitive species? Perhaps they are
meant to sail into the nearest sun, but now, after millennia of usage, their software has become so degraded and garbled that their choice of impact
site has become anything solid nearby.
Contact and the bizarre; are the plethora of strange alien creatures allegedly seen by humans the product of holographic/re-creative technology gone
awry? What if these probes had the capability to temporarily replicate previously encountered species for study purposes, as we would, say, recreate
dinosaurs in computer programmes for entertainment and scientific speculation. With the governing software now playing little to no part in the
probe’s reasoning process, these short-lived beings could be created on the nearest planet by accident. Would this explain accounts of the more
odd-looking aliens, or our inability to catch the Loch Ness monster or the Sasquatch even after hundreds of years of sightings?
And what of the sometimes odd and contradictory messages received by channellers? The rash of prophecies that never come true? Are they nothing more
than the near insane ramblings of a mechanically sentient species no longer capable of deciding what is real and what is programming?
Patiently, these probes await feedback from home, or instructions on new procedures that will now never come. You gotta feel sorry for them.
This is all speculation, I know.
But it’s fun, nevertheless.
