I see that this thread is stuck on arguing about the SETI program. Please consider that its purpose has been to turn the tide of disbelief of ETs
into a slow acceptance. It need not succeed in any form in its stated goal. It merely is serving its purpose as are any one of dozens of similar
programs/projects/lectures/articles, etc. that promote an expanded view of intelligent life in the Universe. (Basically, we can include the whole of
The situation is not that they are searching for signals of ETs and then once having discovered them via that way, they are only then going to say,
"OK. We have confirmation. Now what?" Science, military and government do not operate from crisis to crisis. The always have contingency plans
(not to mention "delivery" plans). That is especially true when they are intertwined as one entity as they definitely are.
I feel that it is a given that once it gets kicked around that we have found Earth-like planets safely out there and seemingly could support some type
of life, one of them will soon be found, like clockwork, by SETI to be emanating intelligent signals. That would be about the ten o'clock position
on the "bringing humans up to speed" plan. There is a definite route of discovery that we have been on since, oh, let us say, about the time the
genuine UFOs first started flitting around our skies. It is a slow process educating the advanced races, let alone the rest of the world. But the
pace is quicking if you haven't noticed. The climax is visible, but there are some problems.
Thing of it is, we have those amazing devices commonly called "black triangles" that complicate the whole scenerio. If we compare the reported
triangle characteristics to typical UFOs, there is little if no difference in performance capabilities to the eye. Plus, the sudden history of the
triangles in the last two decades is indicative that they, as witnessed by their unusual shape (perhaps based on our three-axis system for flight),
are evident that they are our machines. (Or you can argue they are new ET machines, which would you prefer?)
In short, the triangles are fabulous machines that are as great of an achievement as the invention of the wheel. The problem is that they are
reserved as a military weapon at this time. But that is not the only reason they are still secret craft. To acknowledge them as a new human
invention would create difficult questions to the PTB about where that technology came from. And anyone with half a mind can see that they came
directly from alien technology. How did that happen? Has secret contact commenced already, have we copied our designs from crashes or have we taken
the in-your-faces hint to do our own work?
It seems evident that the triangles soon will be revealed as earthly craft. What must follow that acknowledgement in fairly short order is the
further news that UFOs are real. Since SETI is the official unofficial alien detection outfit that people have learned to know and trust, I suspect
that when it announces they have detected alien existence, then that will advance the Disclosure timetable to the eleven o'clock position. Not long
after that, the alarm will sound, loud and clear.
