Lets suppose that hypothetically I were to be abducted on a semi regular basis. Lets suppose that through one reason or another I accidentally took back something from said encounter. Supposing that I hypothetically brought back the equivalent of an extraterrestrial bandaid/first aid kit, what would it be worth, and who could I sell it to? But then again, its all hypothetical.

Call Quantico and ask for Fox Mulder.

But seriously, I dont think a price could be set on anything Extraterrestrial. If the CIA or some Shadow Government knew that you had such an item, it would be gone so fast that your head would spin....and you'd have no payment what so ever.

I'm sure the CIA/NSA/insert relevant agency would be quite interested in...whether you could sell is a different matter.

The best thing to do is get some really smart dudes and reverse engineer it. Make that into a product and sell That.

Of course.. this may be impossible depending on the technology as their physics may not function the same way as our known physics or as we understand it.

Before I get jumped on for the above, I want to say there is nothing in this universe or the next that says physics must remain constant.

Our understanding of physics is derived through our five senses and how our minds interpret that data. Aliens may have entirely different senses that their minds interpret differently. Including their concept of math.. so no.. that's not a universal constant.

It's pretty sad you would think about how much money you could when it would be the biggest thing to happen to mankind. Maybe I'm an idealist but what is a few thousand bucks when it could lead to a paradigm shift for the entire human population?

what it's potentially worth? immeasurable.


what you'd get? a gunshot wound to the head and a death certificate with 'suicide' written all over it? maybe an exclusive storage unit at the dulce/area-so-and-so organ bank? an 'accident' or a disappearance?

does it even matter, you're dead in any case - unless you conceal it.

You're asking the wrong question I think. If you - hypothetically - had some ET technology, your first order of business would be to prove that it actually is ET. Any way you approach it, you can't market something as "ET tech" without it being proven by some independent scientific laboratory, or something of equal reputation.

When you get it certified and hopefully patented, then you can work on cutting a deal and getting rich =)

The absolute LAST thing you would want to do is go to the NSA or CIA or any government agency. They'll do one of two things - either laugh at you, or laugh at you and "suicide" you and take your technology. Make sure they never find out until they're looking at 10,000,000 units being sold on Ebay.

We sure would be interested in, as to how it was managed to be brought back, in comparison as to what was brought back.

slightly off track but couldn't the same situation be asked if an alien came to your house and you killed it ,who could you tell?.If it was me i would get a shovel and keep my mouth shut.

In this hypothetical situation, you could upload a auction on E-Bay, About 10 minutes later you get an E-mail stating your auction was ended. You go in and try to rectify, and it keeps happening, this goes on and now you are on with E-Bay tech support. An hour or so after first setting up the auction in the first place, a black unmark van pulls up outside your residence, you do not notice because you are still trying to talk to E-Bay tech support. The men from the black van, all wearing black clothing in the same exact style with nothing distinguishing them apart from one another, approach and enter your house. They end your call with E-Bay tech support.

Days later you are a blurb in the obituaries, apparently you committed suicide.

The closest thing that I could find was this:

cgi.ebay.com.sg...

Some Ben 10, band-aid, stick plasters. They're quite cheap too.

Seriously though, if you had anything on that it would be priceless - or some men in black would turn up at your house and it would cost you your life.

It would be of no value to you unless you could prove it is ET, and you couldn't do that alone. And as soon as you try to enlist the help of others you will be "on the radar", and shortly after that happens you'll be relieved of whatever it is in your possession.

Your only choice would be to find help secretly "off the radar", but you've already ruined that by making a thread on ATS.

Well obviously without firm information on this items capabilities, its worth will be limited. Also you have to assume that since the governments of the world have shown total inability to reveal the existance of alien life, that they will be hunting who ever holds this item due to its exopolitical importance. This also will reduce the overall value of the item, because anyone who possesses it will be in danger , and therefore will either see that as prohibitive to buying it at a high price, or have to spend money on protectives like armed security, and a network of caches which could hide the item, again making ownership of the item EVEN more undesirable.
However if you were to find the right market, you could probably sell cat turd at a high price. Some very rich people would pay alot of money for any damn thing .The real question is , would you want to sell it? The only people who could buy it without being in danger would be the government, and they would probably just kill you for it anyway.
If a person had something like what you describe, then they would be the target of the most powerful and most covert operation , probably in the history of the secret services of the globe, attempting to prevent information about this item reaching the ears of the man on the street, and to prevent liberal minded persons from reverse engineering it, and getting it to work on humans. If the device is as advanced as one would assume considering its origins, it could wreck big pharmas grip on the healthcare of the human race,by advanced curing speeds, perhaps cures for illnesses which currently have no one step cure. Theres a marker over the head of anyone possessing such a device, so its sale will probably be less a financial transaction, and more about finding someone either crazy enough , or clever enough to take it off your hands. These would be far and few between. Hypothetical good luck with that.

Uhhh, Happy - we would like our bandaids back. In exchange we will give you back the Scooby Doo underwear you left on our ship.

Make a video and post it onto youtube and see who contacts you

..... until they're looking at 10,000,000 units being sold on Ebay.




uhh, let me see, if you post a youtube video on some non-PC issue, the quickest way to have it 'pulled' (
) is to post it here, right?

you'd think that Ebay would have y huge headstart on the 'tube, because transactions there take a whole lot more time so no only will the pull your offer but the address you listed with them will get raided real quick. then you'll be facing the conundrum of actually communicating with buyers (both ways) and delivering the goods without being intercepted or your buyers suffering from disappearance. it's an endless gauntlet you're proposing, so, the best way to disclose the existence of alien technology is to steal a phaser and incinerate local LE & politicos & media, the proceed to take it to a more visible level.

hard to deny, eh? kind of evil, though. speaking of hypotheticals, couldn't we just change our wishlist and get an actual ship instead of an artefact?

Long lance,
what you are suggesting is murder and mayhem and has no relation to the question posed in the first message, and quite frankly I think that is kind of rude

my answer would be to find a way to prove it's alien origins then hit he news media and then provide the technology to the highest bidder
you would hire a lawyer naturally

I doubt you would be dissapeared in fact the us government would probably jump at the chance to show off to it's neighbours how much better they are because they have advanced tech

anyways this post will get lost in a tirade of wild speculation over nonexistant monitoring of apparently everything

I wouldn't try and sell I on eBay first off it will be assumed to be bogus and you will get your ad pulled by eBay not the CIA

anyways continue on my friends

oh well, my rude suggestion has one big advantage, it can't possibly happen, because no-one has the opportunity, right?


if you believe there is such a thing as suppressed technologies, you'd better be concerned about the mechanism. there's no need for ubiquitous monitoring, your approach will all by itself create many witnesses and it only takes one wrong person to alert whoever runs the suppression racket.

how many people need to hold incontrovertible proof in their hands before it creates a stink? the OP is about an artefact, something that cannot be copied, obviously, so once it's lost, game over. technology might work, if it's easy enough to understand and use, but the err, 'source' would be quite negligent to introduce such into this world unless it was already in use by splinter factions for what unholy reason ever.

If I was in posession of such an item, I would NOT be posting about it online or thinking big bucks. I would probably want to return it to it's rightful owner, if I were being abducted regularly, I would try to leave it in a place where the alien would be able to see it and be able collect it. A highly evolved alien would probably understand a small note left with the item asking them to collect it.

I wouldn't like to be the one responsable for humans finding and exploiting an alien race. Also, it could be giving off a signal of some sort that could draw more hostile aliens towards Earth.

I know this probably sounds stir crazy to you guys, but what right have I to weild such power? and what right has anyone to kill me for it?

Some folk who are abducted claim they come back with their jammies or nightgowns on back to front, or outside in. What if someone, say a Scotsman, came back with the wrong trousers on and in the pocket was the wallet belonging to the owner who lives in the US, and he in turn had the Scotsman's breeks on, and his wallet? Neither of them have a passport and both men had used their own credit cards/ID or whatever, from their wallets, just an hour or two before their abduction.

Would that prove they'd been abducted?

Do you think anyone would be interested in buying their bits as souvenirs?

Is this on topic or have I had too much sun today?
