I'd first like to point out that I'm an "ET on Earth" skeptic. This doesn't mean that I believe ET hasn't visited Earth, rather it just means
that I haven't yet seen enough convincing evidence to believe that they have. Just as I haven't seen enough convincing evidence to suggest that ET
is visiting Earth, I haven't seen evidence on the contrary either. With that out of the way, I'll get to the point of this thread and the meat of
my theory. Please remember that this theory is based upon on the "if" of UFOs being controlled by ET. If they do exist and are visiting
Earth. The hypothetical.
Many people ask the question, "Why doesn't ET just land on the WH lawn and introduce themselves?" or "Why is ET so elusive?". My theory is rooted
in the widely held "ant pile" theory (though not so much), to where ET doesn't interfere with our lives or our planet, just as we don't interfere
when passing an ant pile, however it is only rooted in such a notion and expands both on it and over it.
However, instead of using the "ant pile" analogy, I liken it more to a zoo or the wilderness. When we go into the wilderness, we don't really
interfere with the activities of the wildlife. We watch, but we don't interfere, even when a cute animal is about to be torn to shreds and eaten for
dinner. Regardless, for the purposes of this thread, I'd like to take that theory and expand on it. Please keep in mind that this is obviously
hypothetical and relies on a bunch of empty variables.
When pondering on this notion of ET, one has to ask why they would not be interested in popular contact. Sure, we may be more primitive but we are
self aware and can think in abstract terms. For this reason, they shouldn't really look at us as we look upon ants, or even wild animals. Their
apparent indifference makes no sense, at least when comparing it to our own indifference when viewing animals in the wilderness. They should, in a
perfect world, still be able to say hi, as it could benefit both parties. So in that thought, why haven't they announced themselves and what is the
reason for their apparent indifference or elusive behavior, other than malevolence? Caution.
You see, what if we gained a lot of our modern technology through UFO crashes, whether it be the Roswell crash or the alleged Black Forest crash? As
we all know, we use this supposed gained knowledge for nefarious purposes. If this is the case and we actually have gained most of our modern
technology through reverse engineering of alien craft, then our minds haven't evolved enough to responsibly handle the technology. There is an
imbalance between what we have and what we are capable of.
What if most civilizations throughout the universe always evolve with their technology, so that by the time that they are advanced enough to have the
technology that we currently have, their minds have evolved in a manner that allows them to use that technology responsibly? If we gained our modern
technology through reverse engineering, then we obviously have technology that our minds are not yet capable of using in the proper way. We could have
skipped a thousand years or so of evolving. We may just be a little too big for our britches.
Because of this, ET might be extremely hesitant to make contact, not for fear of their own safety, rather out of caution for ours. Think about it for
a moment... What if we somehow gave apes machine guns or a similar type device that they could operate. Not only would they most likely drive
themselves extinct, but they would also endanger us too, as they have the ability to affect the entire food chain. The repercussions of something such
as this could be enormous.
What if we could somehow go back in time several thousands of years and all of the sudden ancient man got a hold of powerful x-ray technology (due to
our time travel)? Their minds haven't yet evolved enough to use that x-ray machine in a responsible or proper way. Shoot, they are still thinking
that each star in the sky is the soul of a dead king. They are also still thinking that the best way to get a good crop yield is to sacrifice a
virgin. Somehow, they would incorporate that x-ray machine into their religion, zapping everyone who entered a temple. Pretty soon, everyone would
have cancer, simply because their minds had not yet evolved enough to use that technology appropriately, thus the chain of events that should have
lead up to the discovery of that technology were skipped, creating an imbalance.
If ET makes contact with us, then who knows how much more technology we get from them, whether it be handed down to us or reverse engineered. Clearly,
our minds have not yet evolved enough to use this technology in a responsible manner, if in fact it is due to reverse engineering, thereby threatening
the entire system. We may have been contaminated with technology.
ET's apparent indifference and elusive behavior very well could be because of our capability to reverse engineer their technology when we have not
yet evolved enough to use it in a proper way. By befriending us or even getting too close, we may be able to get a hold of more technology that could
wind up creating more of an imbalance.
Of course, their elusive behavior could be due to malevolence. They may not be introducing themselves because they aren't friendly, however I'll
digress on this issue.
Please keep in mind that I'm not suggesting this as fact or even ET visiting Earth as fact. Rather, I'm only stating what "could be" or a
"what if", a hypothetical if you will. Again, I'm not suggesting that our modern technology was obtained through ET craft or even that ET is
flying in our skies. I'm only stating a possibility.
