Sounds like somebody isn't familiar with aliens knowing how to bend timeline waves, so what would normally take thousands of years to reach us
makes it possible for them to be here in a very short length of time.
I'm pretty sure that in the 1500's when the Spanish landed unannounced on mainland South America, it must have crossed the natives' minds - in
between thinking "Oh crap" and RUN! - that those steel-clad men had some seriously advanced technology (in the shape of galleons). To be able to
traverse such vast distances as the open sea to the horizon would have been to someone with a mere canoe - similar tech, but aeons apart - fantastic
Perhaps that'll be the difference - and similarity - between us and ET; we might recognise their "ships" as just that; parallel research and
development, except theirs started way
However, until they get here, such matter-of-fact statements such as you made above, sled735
, about bending spacetime should be pure
speculation at best, but in this context are unfortunately sci-fi at worst
It's not only ridiculous to employ such theoretical concepts as a foundation of your beliefs, but it actively works against you trying to persuade
the skeptical amongst us that you actually know what you're talking about. Yes, bending the fabric of space is - in theory - possible, but until
it's actually done
, it's just that; a theory
And someone who has made "contact" with ET telling
you "they" have such technology, and you believing it, is not going to help you either
as it's just one man's word.
As to this telepathic contact from ET; do "they" choose the recipient of this communication? Or is it hit and miss? I ask because I can imagine the
first conversation going something like this:
ET: We are ET.
Recipient: Oh, hello!
ET: To whom do we speak?
R: I'm a doctor!
ET: Do you represent the whole of your people?
R; Err, not as such. I have a few friends and a website, though. If that helps.
ET: Are these friends leaders of your planet? Does this website inform the people of your planet?
R: Err, no. They're mainly work colleagues, social friends, bowling, that sort of thing; family, you know? And I have a fairly good hit rate on my
site. Well, a few thousand hits, to be honest. It's been quiet lately...
ET: Oh...But you are
able to relay our hugely important message of hope and salvation to the entire world?
R: Err, not really
. I can advertise it, maybe?
R: Err, on my website, maybe?
ET: What percentage of your world's population do you have access to on your site?
R: Weeeeell, to be honest; not many. A teeney fraction? Of course, they can get lots more information from my site if they pay.
ET: Pay? With currency?
R: Yep! I know! Perhaps I can get some followers to talk about your message on ... conspiracy sites?
ET: Conspiracy sites?
R: Yeah, they're great! It's where people go - conspiracy theorists - to argue about outlandish ideas and unproven concepts. Lots of speculation in
various forms about...unusual things.
ET: Tell us more.
R: Well, there's a lot of people who visit them ...
ET: So you can
speak for us to the entire world? And these conspiracy theorists are highly respected?
R: Err, not quite
the whole world, but a good few thousand! And that depends how you define respected
ET: Would they be influential amongst your people? Are they leaders, teachers, those who guide?
R: Err, not exactly. There's a lot of ridicule attached to conspiracy theory...
ET: So, to recap: you can put our message of huge import on your website, and get people to pay for it, and promote us on other websites that are
populated by ridiculed speculators?
R: Err, yes.
ET: Sounds fine to us.
Is that how it goes? Just wondering...
