This thread is based on the assumption that there is indeed a variety of recovered ET technology hidden in underground bases around the world, and
that we have managed to reverse engineer some of it, as the conspiracy theories assert.
I’ll try to get to the point as quickly as possible.
Is it possible that some of these technologies could be used to spur a third industrial revolution?
I remember reading the book “The day after Roswell” by Phil Corso. In it he describes how he was partly responsible for ensuring that recovered ET
components were quietly slipped into the regular army R&D stream. This resulted in the development of some modern day tech such as microchips, lasers
and night vision. Even if he isn’t telling the truth the sequence of events he described is still plausible.
The first two industrial revolutions were spurred by the mechanization of industry, the introduction of steam engines, the rise of the
factory/production line ethic etc. These revolutions increased the standard of living substantially for many, and are also directly responsible for
the sharp rise in population due to the increased availability of food.
The US was particularly fortunate to have the bulk of the Worlds manufacturing capacity after WW2, something which it capitalized on resulting in the
prosperity of the past century.
To change tack…
Looking at present day America, it is widely perceived that some of the economic woes are in part due to the offshoring of jobs, in particular light
and heavy industries. Even if these jobs were to be repatriated, it is unlikely that the US companies in question could compete on the same level due
to initial startup costs, minimum wage and industry regulations to name a few that come to mind. They would be a few steps behind the competition.
So how does the US revive its crumbling economy?
There are two ways with which we have become familiar.
There is war. The US already did that and is still paying for it. To add insult to injury, the Chinese are benefitting most from the business and oil
coming out of Iraq. War allows countries to buy expensive weapons, and in the case of the US, to buy expensive weapons from itself, but it would seem
that the US is hemorrhaging dollars in the Middle East, dollars it needs to borrow.
There is also technological development, and this is where the speculation starts. We have conspiracy theories purporting that the US military
industrial complex is sitting on cheap alternative energy sources, advanced methods of transport, and even vehicles capable of space travel. Some
might consider me naïve even for suggesting this, but do you think it is possible for this technology to” seeded” into the industrial stream, in
order to start the next industrial revolution? If the technology exists, would this not be a good way to take advantage of it?
Consider that the rest of the world is becoming increasingly oil dependent. Nations proudly proclaim economic growth figures, but none of this is
sustainable due to oil and coal being finite resources.
The “head in the sand” mantra is that when oil starts to run low, we will look to alternative fuel sources. Yes, this is already happening on the
small scale, but no governments have fully embraced a move away from oil.
More speculation: If the US were to be the first country to embrace a new technology on a large scale, and move away from oil dependency, would this
not deal a crippling blow to BRIC? This would turn the “game” on its head when no-one would be prepared for it. Assuming that this tech would help
the US generate twice the power at half the cost, build weapons that would render current equipment useless, build flying vehicles that could utilize
forms of antigravity, build cars that could run on water…how would rival nations respond to this?
They would probably choose to do business or go to war, but that’s enough speculation on my part.
Do I think that something of this magnitude could in fact be coordinated by the elite, politicians and industry leaders? I think capitalism trumps
patriotism nine times out of ten. But if both could be used to make a profit, then just maybe.
