Imagining crop circles are some instructions from the gods is like a scary flasher winking oddly at young children in a playground, and somebody comes
around and says "oh, let's try to pay attention to him, he's trying to teach us calculus and the cure to cancer, if only we could decode it."
But the thing is your theory of the deliberate perpetuation of the New Age paradigm is just as, if not more, ridiculous than believing in some
'unkown intelligence' attempting to comunicate with humans. It would cost money and take man hours and equipment for a very dubious result.
Obviously. "Dubious result"? Look at what you yourself wrote in this thread. The result is effective. If it saves one $300 million triangle
craft from being shot down over Iran, or a nosy congressional committee, the entire cognitive cover campaign for decades was worth it.
From what we have seen governments are not eager to perpetrate the alien myth - there are enough people with strong imaginations to do that.
Officially, of course, because then there would be official pressure to "do something about it", when there's nothing to be done. If somebody
official says "yes ETs are real", they would be required to give extensive evidence and if it isn't there, then plenty of people get sacked and the
strings get unraveled on the triangles. No go.
And the pofit margins for tech hoaxers to do it also would be questionable.
Which is why I postulated a motive, mechanism, and intent and one which piggybacked onto robotics development which they might already want to work
