No, and no.
And there's no "alien technology." We haven't seen the kinds of changes in our technology that would indicate a sudden boost from reengineering
something completely new (you'd see a massive jump in jobs and new types of businesses and new types of labs.)
If you watch the "Connections" tv series, you can see clearly how ideas develop from other concepts. Because of the internet and global
communications, we can have better access to ideas. This makes our development faster.
But it's not alien. It'sl just good old humans.
