Thanks Lady_Tuatha. It really comes down to some basics. One, are there alien life forms? Two, if so, are they interstellar or interdimensional?
Three, are the odd tales from ancient civilizations just fantasy or is there some truth to them at all? If we are going sci-fi, then most of ATS is
Okay, here goes. During the Big Bang, not only was our Universe created, but many others right along with it. These other Universes would be
considered 'alternate dimensions'. Now these Universes are quite similar as the same forces are interacting with them in the same way. This does not
mean that there aren't nuances that are affect each reality differently. And it is those nuances that we need to look at.
note: Just because someone can make a choice between two option, it does not mean that another dimension is created where the other choice was made.
It takes a lot of energy to create a new Universe.
Now in a few of these Universes, life came to be. And in at least one, intelligent life formed (no, not the one we live in. Well, not yet). This
intelligent life started millennia before humanity ever came to be. Today, we know these entities as the 'Greys'. It took them quite some time, but
they soon understood about the other dimensions and soon were able to cross over into them. But not all 'Earths' evolved life.
They eventually found one that did (Nope, still not us). The dominant lifeform was dinosaurs, or, reptilian. There were some signs of rudimentary
intelligence in one strain. Fortunately there wasn't a world cataclysm on this 'Earth' (Whether it just didn't happen or the 'Greys' stopped it,
I'm not sure).
The 'Greys' helped the 'Reptilians' along the path to self awareness. They were with them through the whole process. In the end, this caused
resentment. The 'Reptilians' felt as if they were manipulated. They were not allowed to become what they would have been if left alone. Even though
the two species still intermingle, there is always an undercurrent of distrust.
So now the Reptilians started exploring the dimensions. They found one where most of their kind was long gone. In their place, mammals were now the
dominant species. They came as the Annunaki and genetically created new species. We were nothing more than experimental beasts. The old writings tell
of what they did to our species. They weren't always kind.
Eventually the 'Greys' found out about what the 'Reptilians' were doing. They were not happy. The 'Greys' had been accused of interfering in a
species development, but they had never gone to this extent. This was the beginning of the War over Humanity.
As is, the 'Reptilians' still think we should be grateful to them and become their unwavering subjects. Some 'Greys' feel we are nothing more than
a failed experiment and that are of no use. A larger contingent of the 'Greys' see that we should have a right to continue but are unsure about
disclosing the true nature of things as we are still a very violent and selfish species. They do not want a repeat of what the 'Reptilians' did.
So the war goes on. And where we end up at the end of this war determines who we become as a species.
(Later: More on Interstellar travel, Early dimensional travel, Interspecies politics, etc... ) so yes, a lot more unseen.
