I can tell you that there is more to this world than what we see everyday. We are not here to prove anything in person to anyone. No one needs a PHD to understand the vastness of the universe and the amount of life forms that could very well exist. I am not an expert on anything but I can always voice my opinion.
Speaking about magic and spirituality, you have indicated in your o.p that there is no magic. We didn't mention that there is magic. Magic is an illusion.
Spirituality is a set of certain qualities that one nurtures himself to become a better living being. When we talk abut those qualities we are talking about world peace, consciousness, non-materialism, mutual respect, freedom so and so. The world is lacking these. And we all know the current situation of this world.
With the kind of advanced technology the aliens may possess, it could bring destruction as well as peaceful governance. If aliens are here, there could be several reasons:
1) They are our creators, so I see no reason for them to explain themselves to us. We could just be their experiment. Call them God/Aliens or anything by name.
2) They are like everyone else probably advanced and has technology to travel anywhere. They could be hundreds to millions of years more evolved-intergalactic even inter dimensional.
Now, let us say, they are our creators. Would a creator need to protect his creation? Thats their choice. But they have not wiped us out either. Now to choice two. They are far more advanced but that doesn't mean that they know everything. They are mortal. Their ships crash. They could bleed too.
But we have to realize that science just keeps changing. May be our science just depends on what we could see and feel. There could be more to it. What if 'our' science is based on our limited understanding and is a crooked version of the 'real' science that exists beyond our perception? Are we that intelligent to successfully become a galactic civilization? We are yet to figure out things about our own moon.
What if we are a dumbed down, not-so-intelligent and materialistic animals? I say the true science behind space travel and how things work is beyond our understanding. Its that simple. But our ignorance and our limited abilities
have shown us the world the way it is now.
The Vedas mentions beings able to control crafts with their mind. And scientists have just figured out mind-controlled computer games. It is not for us to say that aliens don't exist. We could very well be the remnants of a much brighter and advanced society that once lived here or who came here.
Why do we have messengers throughout our history? Why do we need a Jesus? Why Ram and the other avatars? Are they trying to tell us something? Is it their style of intervention?
