I heard about how the transistor was reverse-engineered off Roswell. And our technology DID increase drastically between 1950 and 2010.


So could it be that you we are using ALIEN technology right now, every day?

Electricity was the first big advancement. Once that was in place, the rest was simple.

Yes
I realy beleve this to be true

I think you heard wrong


The advancements in our own technology allowed us to progress. The advancements in science played a major role by discovering new materials....from our planet.

Its called evolution.....look at how people used to wash clothes, nowadays we have washing machines...even down to things like lawnmowers, things get better over time because we learn from our mistakes and embrace learning things


EDIT: And we are a lazy species, so we need things to make out lives easier...people think them up and someone makes it

Good point, and don't forget about plastic.

It wasn't transistors we reverse-engineered from the Roswell crash we had those in TVs and Radios already at that time. We supposed reverse-engineered integrated-circuits from the crash in addition to fiber-optics, laser and a few other technologies.

of course... everything after that was easy! *sarcasm* Did you ever try building one of those "simple" things by yourself?

The transistor was an improvement on the vacuum tube, granted a very large improvement but similar principle, that had been around long before Roswell if that's your starting point.
Also, why would their computing technology but not their engine/transportation technology make it?

I dont think that this is quite true , tv s and radios in the early 50 s used vacume tubes.Rowswell happened in 1947. en.wikipedia.org...

In 1947, John Bardeen and Walter Brattain at AT&T's Bell Labs in the United States observed that when electrical contacts were applied to a crystal of germanium, the output power was larger than the input. Solid State Physics Group leader William Shockley saw the potential in this, and over the next few months worked to greatly expand the knowledge of semiconductors. The term transistor was coined by John R. Pierce as a portmanteau of the term "transfer resistor".[3][4] According to physicist/historian Robert Arns, legal papers from the Bell Labs patent show that William Shockley and Gerald Pearson had built operational versions from Lilienfeld's patents, yet they never referenced this work in any of their later research papers or historical articles.[5]

I read about this in 'The Day After Roswell' by Philip J. Corso. I think it's a pretty good theory, about a staged crash giving us new tech so that they can use it for their own means.
Well its as good as any other theory I suppose.(good book too)

Fiber optics would be what I would consider most likely to have been reverse engineered if we have had some sort of crash or what not.

I was talking to a friend about how fiber optics had to be troubleshot with imaginary numbers to get data to flow the way they want it to when they want it to. My assessment was that fiber optics either just posed new challenges (my opinion) or they did so because they were indeed other worldly

Admittedly, I am no expert on math or fiber optics.

Could someone expand on that maybe? Or tell me how my opinion is flawed, because I imagine it is

If computers were reverse engineered alien tech, i would think that the first ones would have been a bit more advanced. Considering the early computing machines had little to no processing power or storage capacity, they used a ton of electricity, and were huge. I can't imagine you would find anything even remotely resembling early computers, on an interstellar spaceship.

None of the reverse engineered E.T. tech claims hold up under even rudimentary examination.

Contrary to what the likes of Phillip Corso and Anthony Bragallia would have many believe, technological invention has been meticulously documented since the advent of the industrial age and to be honest, there is no room or need for E.T. in the historical record.

Not only is the origin and path of discovery behind all modern technology documented in minutia ( think patent enforcement, court hearings to determine intellectual property etc as to why).
There is no room in the documented evolution of any of the modern tech often attributed to E.T. (solid state electronics, fiber optics etc) that show anything remotely close to inexplicable advancement or leapfrogging of invention.

This isn't something you have to trust anyone's word on, do a little honest research and you should have all the fact required to make an educated observation regarding the genesis of nearly any facet of modern technological innovation.

I often wonder, do any besides myself find some of the arguments offered by the self proclaimed "open minded" to be somewhat insulting to the memories of the great men and woman who's intellectual pursuits gave birth to things like the transistor or the diode laser.

Isn't it a little crappy to reduce the memories of these folks to nothing more than a footnote to a shallow conspiracy by robbing them of the credit of discovery and by proclaiming their lifework to be the product of "reverse engineered alien technology" rather than years and decades of research and sacrifice?

No, all human developments with a fully intact development trail going back, in some cases, to earlier than Roswell. Roswell was a Mogul balloon. The project was secret but none of the technology was really very advanced. Unless of course you believe the hooey that Roswell was a crashed UFO with alien bodies. I can't help you in that case.

I retract my statement about transistors being used in TVs and radios of 1947, you're right it was vacuum tubes.

But it was integrated-circuits (the begins of modern computer-chip) that has always been claimed to have been reverse-engineered from the Roswell crash.

Fiber optics, fair enough...

Take a peak...


Fiber optics, though used extensively in the modern world, is a fairly simple and old technology. Guiding of light by refraction, the principle that makes fiber optics possible, was first demonstrated by Daniel Colladon and Jacques Babinet in Paris in the early 1840s. John Tyndall included a demonstration of it in his public lectures in London a dozen years later...

..Practical applications, such as close internal illumination during dentistry, appeared early in the twentieth century...

...Image transmission through tubes was demonstrated independently by the radio experimenter Clarence Hansell and the television pioneer John Logie Baird in the 1920s. The principle was first used for internal medical examinations by Heinrich Lamm in the following decade. In 1952, physicist Narinder Singh Kapany conducted experiments that led to the invention of optical fiber. Modern optical fibers, where the glass fiber is coated with a transparent cladding to offer a more suitable refractive index, appeared later in the decade....


Optical Fiber

See, after a quick glance, nothing in the story of fiber optics requires extraterrestrial intervention for the technology to be possible. Only that oldest of home spun terrestrial technologies, human ingenuity.

To beleive we reversed engineered Aliean tech then we must have the same materials and minerals to hand that the Alieans have. So im my mind thats a bit of a stretch. All planets that we have investigated are totally different in makeup.

We could have reversed engineered thier tech but only up into a point with our different resources. If we have then I dont beleive Aleians are millions of years ahead of us tech wise.. Mabe a few hundred years.

The universe is abundant with resources. I don't know where you got the bit about all the planets we have investigated have been totally different in makeup/materials
