2) I will look into the Nurnberg event, I believe I have at least heard it mentioned in passing, but I've done no actual research into the event.
This is very interesting to me, as I now pay more attention to the events that are not constantly brought up in books/documentaries.
I could very well see a "super-power" existing in the ET world just as we have here, I wonder if it would change as frequently as it does here on
4) I think that cloning technology works much like the movie "Multiplicity" (which ties into the slow-leak theory involving Hollywood), the first
generation of clones or so were probably relatively similar to the original species and there was no worry about the long term issues that may arise.
As time went on and they continued cloning, the time passed where they would be able to use genetic engineering to save themselves without combining
another race's (ours, or maybe even another race they have genetically engineered in another star system) DNA with theirs.
I do wonder why the cloning process would have started in the first place though. Maybe an interest in immortality?
5) I agree, we can actually take that even further back as well, for example the Roman Empire. All of these empires have something in common though,
they end, America is well into that phase and seemingly China will become the new superpower (at least if you don't believe that America took out
Al-Qaeda to restart the opium growth in Afghanistan, one of the things Osama stopped, or at least slowed down significantly, in his reign, to regain
our power over China).
10) Very good question. I definitely do not have an answer for you, or even a thought that seems plausible to myself.
Perhaps just as we believe life started as a single cell organism (I'm not completely against the idea of evolution, it's pretty obvious to me that
to some extent it does exist, I just don't believe that us humans evolved from primates without any interference) perhaps so did the universe and
over time it expanded into what we have now (last I heard, we believe that the universe is still expanding), with what I think of as the "creator"
being the nucleus or "brain" of the organism.
Not an entirely new idea to me, as I've always thought of the human race as a "virus" or a "cancer" (what else has an exponential population
graph, barring the dent of the Black Plague), but I've never thought of the universe as a whole as a single organism that we live inside of, although
seemingly it could explain alternate or "parallel" universes. But then the question becomes what kind of organism are we part of? Is there another
"dimension" that they are part of, just like us humans have this universe? Does the cycle ever end? I'd assume this isn't even close to the
reality of our universe though.
13) I'm still not so sure this is the case. I still feel as if the views we currently have on "psychic" abilities are similar to the disbelief the
populace shares on the UFO/ET phenomenon, and I don't feel as if this is just coincidence.
It is theorized that the Atlanteans forced the Annunaki (at least into hiding) off of Earth through the use of crystal "lasers" (based off of
ancient pots with the depiction of some sort of weapon in their hands), and seemingly ever since our psychic abilities have degenerated.
If indeed the Atlanteans were in as much control of their psychic abilities as certain accounts seem to indicate they were, I believe that the ETs
(whether or Annunaki or another), perhaps in collusion with government, have induced this disbelief throughout the populace to limit our growth as a
whole and keep us in a state where we can be used for whatever they need, without having much, if any, resistance.
15) That is indeed a very interesting take on the situation. Very possible this is the case, I'm just not sure what use we are to them if this is the
case. As you mention we ride horses into battle, I don't see what we would be able to offer in an intergalactic war to be honest.
16) I think this may honestly tie into #15. Helping us advance technologically doesn't seem as if it would pose much of a threat to the ETs, while it
would increase what we have to offer in an intergalactic war.
I would definitely agree that the chances of us making it to the moon the first time were probably astronomical without any help from an outside
force. Especially considering it is said that the first shuttle had less technology than most wristwatches today.
