We have a lot of strange things in this world, bizarre experiences people experience everyday, reports of supposed aliens abducting people, weird
incorporeal entities haunting our lives, just plain bizarre stuff out there. Much of which seems "magical" or supernatural in nature. People
miraculously waking up cured from diseases, ect, just so much off the wall stuff.
So we come up with answers for much of this stuff, God, Miracles, Ghosts, we make claims like aliens need our souls, ect, we are inextricably linked
to adding a supernatural bent to everything.
Supernatural, magic, phenomenon completely outside the range of science.
My question though is, are we looking at it wrong?
After all as author Arthur C. Clarke said, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
So what if, everything we're experience is not in the least supernatural. What if it's just, you know, stuff, like our toaster, or military tech,
only more advanced?
Now onto the silly for fun part of this post:
What if, what we're dealing with is, intergalactic trolls with super-science. I mean, let's assume they've learned to do things with tech we can
barely speculate on using what is currently at best described as vague hypothesis or pseudosciences. Is there really anything that can't be explained
by some kind of vague connection to a scientific idea or principle? Is supernatural necessary?
Now why trolling?
Ok, not to over humanize the aliens, but this is hypothetical fun based on my observations. It seems the more intelligent beings become, the more
concerned they come with play, and the more sociopathic and psychotic many become. Not just humans, gang raping, puffer toking dolphins, war raging
murdering chimps, drunk marauding elephants, cruel killer whales playing live seal volleyball, ect. It seems the natural way things just evolve.
The closest thing to peace we have, is leisure, masses culled by lazy play, where we sit around do, pretty much nothing really, while those who care
about power misuse and abuse us because frankly they're the warped violent psychopaths of our society, which seems to come with intelligent beings.
So the masses play, and we come up with more ways to play, some of which are pretty depraved, playing, it's what we do.
Now we have the internet, where people play too with the power of anonymity, and what do we do? We troll others, we play, we're so often jerks. It's
what we do, we're sentient after all, and sentience seems to mean, "get's bored easily."
So aliens, do they need our resources? Nope, why would they, space is filled with anything they'd need, their machines can get it easily, they don't
need us as slaves either. They don't need us as allies either, anymore than we're making trade agreements with chimps or dolphins. They don't need
our planet, if they've gotten this far, they likely have developed the ability to live in space in motherships. So they need nothing from earth,
except that, well, they're sentient, and well with sentience comes, boredom.
So supposition, you're bored aliens with supers-science, aliens that have fallen to the same levels of depravity and lazyness and potential cruelty
all sentients seem capable of. You and others like you find a planet with people on the crux of sentience, still monkeys by your book, but sentient
enough to be entertaining. So you decide, hey, we found a new toy, but dammit we need to share... unless we want another war... well some of us do,
but still, we need ground rules.
One: no straight up disclosure, it would ruin the game, a few here and there to stir the pot, but disclosure stays at a minimum.
Two: if you're going to disclose to someone, make it bizarre, have some fun with it, throw in a little weird to make it unbelievable, have fun with it
so if they tell their full story no one will believe it.
Three: don't take too many of them permanently, too much and well they'll be forced to notice, they're dumb, but not that dumb.
What if they've been trolling us for years, what if God's ect were them? I mean why not, other than entertainment, and research what possible use
could we have for them? Allies? Get real, I've yet to see the human/chimp peace agreement. Food? Bah they've got better super-science created junk
food that's healthy, convenient and tastes great by now. Resources? Space is littered with it, and they can grow their own organics in a lab.
Entertainment, and research? Now we have it. Is the only thing we could possible provide them.
We're sentient enough for sociological experimentation, we're clever enough to really toy with, as we might "get it" so is more fun.
I'm sorry but the peaceful alien thing doesn't jive with me, sentience seems to progress in the opposite direction. I don't think they're invaders
either, they need nothing we have. Just lazy, bored sentients that found an anthill to play with and were forced to share it so made rules to keep
the new toy fun for all.
So when some star-brother comes down and tells you to seek your inner light, know that they're screwing with you and trying their best not to crack a
