Hi GUT, I'll have to admit I love the way you get conversations going. Kind of like throwing a hand grenade in a room - subtle yet effective. Too many responses to read them all so at the risk of redundancy I'll throw in a couple of questions of my own.
1) Why was the rise of the ufo encounters tied to the end of WW2 and the initial use of nuclear power? Sure, you can find many instances predating then but no one can deny the massive increase in sightings and encounters since that time. The usual suspects ask if it was a result of Atomic energy, Nazi science or Secret research by the Allies.
Is there another possibility?
One causal factor completely overlooked so far as I know is the sheer number of deaths associated with WW2. When we look at history blood sacrifice has been a common practice. The Aztecs thought the world would end if they failed to appease the Gods. Pretty much the same deal we read in the Old Testament of the Bible. Much of the ancient world believed the spilling of blood made the Gods happy and would ensure their society continued. It's actually a rather odd concept in that it requires enormous commitments of manpower and resources to win battles or to secure victims to bring home to feed their idols with.
Was there something other than growth and expansion of empire at stake?
I submit the answer is yes, because not only was the blood of enemies spilled but often the most favored sacrifices were made from their own social group - perhaps the blood of a virgin of royal descent or as with the Aztecs it was the winners of the ballgame - their finest athletes. Can you imagine if the Super Bowl Post-Game show featured the ritual murder of the winning team? What possible relation could blood have with UFOs? (forget Tom Cruise and War of the Worlds terraforming, think of something else)
What else did the end of WW2 bring? - A vast reallocation of looted wealth both from Nazi Germany and from the Japanese empire that was secretly shuffled around and shared among a group who have since become the leading advocates of globalism and a New World Order. The "Deep State" or "Shadow Government" was another post WW2 creation along with a plethora of governmental agencies that acted as go-betweens for the Deep State and the Elected government. We are now approaching the point in history where legitimately elected governments are ready to topple due to a global debt crisis. All that money must be owed TO someone, it didn't just vanish. We are fast approaching the juncture where the One World Government is being prepared to step forward and become the savior of humanity.
Are UFOs secret technology or is it related to hidden esoteric/hermetic traditions which also seem to be a part of this same mysterious group?
Another question is that UFOs often appear as light phenomena rather than hard edged objects or "crafts".
Are they part of the same thing or completely separate in nature?
Is there more to light than we know?
Do they exist in 3D reality or do they exist only within our minds?
Could they be projections of thought/imagination/dreams?
Would we know the answer if it hit us square in the face?
I have my doubts.

they are the ones getting their ass kicked by
a small group of individuals. They are the ones trying to
fake the apocalypse.

let alone a self learning A.I systems to the point it mimics a biological organism
to cause interference
Like commanding machines or equipment with a thought, would it be a biological then techno(like implants), or techno, to biological(no implants).
is it to the point of not selling their soul(minds, or free will) for power
I mean an advanced civilization would have immensely powerful quantum computers, let alone a self learning A.I systems to the point it mimics a biological organism,

What if the Voyager plaque had never been sent in 1977
What if "it" is dormant destroyers sent from far away the minute it detects signs of emergence "higher intelligence" (earthlings) ready to ascend the stars or leave their solar system. (Von Newumann planet killers)
What if recent strange weather sun activity are signs that the sun has been attacked and we haven't got long on this planet.
aybe that would explain the seed banks, DUMB bases, the speeding of economic cycles of recession/expansions, disappearance of gold. Where did the trillions bailing out the banks go to? (buying hard currency metals/building the bases)
The US involvement in invading Iraq Libya Afganistan to secure energy.
And what if this super AI reached the point after seeing its makers kill each other (tribal warfare) that it would not allow civilizations to reach a certain level of technolgy (Skynet Terminator Rise of the Machines)
