To exclude anything from God is a form of idolatry. This is not pantheism in the strict sense, since this idea of the divine does include the recognition of degrees of being. This goes to the point that one cannot confine God to anything, particularly in any anthropomorphic sense; hence, he or she is not exclusively existent in any being. The God state the lofty epiphany of developmental evolution, is for all. Nor can one confine God to any phenomenon, for he is above it, as well as in the phenomenon at the same time, yet that is never what he is confined to exclusively. In other words, God literally is all things, yet is figuratively unique when we enter the field of development. Then he/she becomes discretionary, because we are traveling from one point to the next, which requires identification with form. In the state of enlightenment, the inner eye sees through these relative forms by seeing the absolute in and beyond all form.

From a religious perspective or the Gaia philosophy the alien UFOs may be a manifestation of a balancing apparatus to this clear threat to the extinction of the ecosystem by human technological folly.
The visitors arrived after the war and took upon themselves to form a social movement within the civilizations to counteract the threat: civil rights movements, population control organizations come into being, anti-nuclear and peace organizations sprout up all over the world, anti poverty and anti war movements. Read the book by Timothy Good: The Earth is an Alien Enterprise
Also the mythology informs that there is no thing completely good or completely evil. For example:
The torrential rain in the north gives life to the crops of the farmers but destruction in the south to the Indian tents.
So is rain good or evil?
Everything seems to point to beings coming from heaven, mating with the daughters of men, then history stops...
What if thoughts were energy that projects outward.Could my dream manifest as your ghost or even an alien? Does my super conscious dream? Do my daydreams enter another persons sub or super conscious? Did I just see a UFO, or was somebody in Siberia asleep and projecting dream energy?
