The UFO Game

Whoever is flying these UFOs is playing with us, and you can take that to the bank.

A decade into the modern era’s experience of UFOs, it would have been logical to conclude that our little planet on the galactic edge was being scouted. Perhaps we were being slated for military or economic exploitation. Perhaps we were being considered for contact – inclusion in some kind of galactic United Planets. Perhaps we were being tasted, in order to determine whether or not we belonged on somebody’s menu.

The only problem with all of that is the fact that these are assumptions.
Assumptions are trouble, but often in the field of speculative assessing (aka “paranormal research”) we have only assumptions to work with. It’s the nature of the game.
The other game that requires us to use our heads as hard and as fast as we can manage is the UFO game. Oddly enough, the idea that UFOs have been hidden by governments who secretly know the truth has fed into paranoia alongside rational fears about government authority. The fact that the USAF has long considered UFOs a convenient smokescreen for black projects hardly helps matters. In a world where the mainstream is heavily influenced by skeptical opinion, we are supposed to accept that every major scion of the Kennedy family who was in a position to be President (or was the President) has died. And we are expected to believe that those scenarios directly involving assassination were the work of lone madmen, rather than the result of political infighting between the great families of the Republic cum Empire. In such a world, it is easy too to believe that the government knows about UFOs and keeps the truth from the public.

The UFO game is a powerful tool, used by someone to manipulate public opinion and perhaps even to control popular will and the outcomes of policy decisions in ways unforeseen.

It has also served to undermine faith in religions and caused some to focus on the idea that all myths are based in alien encounters. It has brought about changes in human collective consciousness and altered the thinking of countless persons regarding the possibility – and the likely fact – that we are not alone in the universe. It has sparked debate and encouraged a widening of our notions and an expansion of our considerations.

The UFO game may mostly be a function of human agendas, but this does not ultimately account for the oddities and encounters that are simply too numerous to all be hoaxes, identification errors and/or misguided attempts at fame and fortune. The UFOs and their apparent occupants often behave oddly, and this is no surprise. After all, how does an alien think? What does an alien civilization look like, and how is it organized? What are the customs, traditions, sciences and religions of extraterrestrials?

Take, for example, the notion that an alien civilization would engage in reconnaissance. This is a human concept, an outgrowth of an epoch of internecine war amongst varied factions of our species. It is a function of our terrain, our modes of organization and our philosophies of knowledge, exploration, discovery and the establishment of advantage. All of these things depend upon our humanity. It’s just as likely that technological differences (readable – but not always definable – as superiority) would mean that all reconnaissance could be accomplished without ever placing a vessel in our skies. In fact, the more we consider what a future earth military might be capable of in 500 years, the less we can believe that we might even recognize an alien assessment of our world – much less catch them at it.
What if the alien species is something even science fiction hasn’t imagined? What if they are based on a gas, rather than a solid element? What if they exist in ranges of temperature, pressure and volatility such that we would consider them more forces of nature than actual living creatures? What if the Ancient Alienswho are the basis for our Gods were nothing more than a kind of morality play, or else the prehistoric equivalent of an instructional video? What if the Bible is a form of highly advanced warfare? In this case, perhaps the technology deployed against us is the complex of laws, teachings, examples and prophecies – all of which serve to generate confusion, discord and chaos. If so, is this “cognitive weaponry” designed to cause a species to wipe itself out on a specified time scale, partially determined by random chance, natural forces and the fundamental need for an animal like us to develop independence and individual identity? As we throw off the yoke of such a faith system (in some quarters), we trigger reactionary events that bring about the End as We Know it.

This last proposition is one of the scariest, because it would mean that something akin to a Time Lord has been here – or is still here and always has been – and has manipulated us for nefarious purposes. It could well be that this is the simplest and simultaneously the highest form of warfare: Get your enemy to kill himself, without ever realizing that you were present and a threat in the first place.
It would be very easy to start a global war of proportions previously unreached simply by making it seem that Jesus had returned in a way too obvious and profound for any atheist or unbeliever to challenge – and all of it broadcast on international live news feeds to radios, televisions and computer screens everywhere. And with highly advanced technology, the appearance of miracles would be indistinguishable from the real thing. The global Christian community would be instantly galvanized, and the fake alien Jesus could rely upon unthinking obedience from billions of people. What if he ordered genocide carried out against all unbelievers?

A host of “what if” style questions might lead us into the weeds, but they can also liberate us from our preconceptions and lift us out of the mire of theoretical muck. It is always an open possibility that our Science is only a new Dogmatism, and as such, it is insufficient to address the true nature of reality. This is an underlying tenet of Athena’s Men, a guiding principle of our work here at the Vicar’s Lamp, and an eternal, unresolvable proposition that irritates hard scientists to no end.
Irritating the scientists is one of our primary goals. Like Socrates before us, the importance of playing the gadfly to the horse of institutional and presumptive thinking is not lost.
If a cosmic warrior race descended upon us, would we be able to form a resistance? Humans – primarily Americans – have already developed shockingly effective forms of near-absolute mind control, without even resorting to brain implants and memory manipulation. Well, we haven’t resorted to these things publicly and en masse, as yet. Given time, things will no doubt change. As we wrote in How Superman Will Destroy Democracy, the pendulum that swings between offense and defense throughout history and determines the degree of individual freedom via the limited range of human styles of government has swung again to the side of power. Authority will soon be unshakeable, and revolution will be virtually impossible.

A basic rule of open-mindedness is the recognition that skeptical responses are motivated by unease, fear and an unwillingness to accept human limitations. In truth, the whole of reality may be totally different from what we see as a species and even more differentiated on the individual level. It may be that nothing we perceive is true and valid. “Row, row, row your boat… ” as the three primary Star Trek characters once sang around the campfire.
Is reality as we see it? Consider the case of the UFO that landed so it’s occupants could briefly abduct a man and then pull out pieces of his hair. That strikes as a bit bizarre, but there again, the case was ultimately labelled a hoax. But there are two problems with the hoax moniker in any case and especially in these types: First, every case is a hoax in the minds of those who automatically discard the possibility of alien interaction with our world. Second, the concept of a hoax is typically tied to the capacity to find supporting evidence. In the absence of evidence, skeptics are quick in most cases to insist that the mundane has been disrupted more by imagination and a desire for profit or fame than by any abnormality. But absence of evidence has not ever been and in fact likely never will be evidence of absence. And when what is described as having happened is utterly weird, why should we be surprised if no evidence that we can recognize turns up?

Based upon Vallee’s insights, we must consider the fact that many UFO and “alien” encounters actually just end up looking weird and making no sense. We read of aliens landing to offer bland pancakes to farmers, or diminutive aliens landing so they can march, single file and in shiny suits, to a well into which they promptly disappear. Three things are of significance in these kinds of events, but first, consider this:

The equation between the humanoids of the flying saucers and the elves of folklore has become something of a truism.

The similarities between the UFO phenomenon and the European, and even extra-European, fairy cult is strong, especially in the subtexts of sexuality, abduction, rape, and the substitution of otherworldly changelings for human babies.

That’s not alone the essence of the argument made by Vallee and others, it’s also the crux of the whole UFO issue. Why are there incidents throughout human history that neatly escape being fully verifiable while also often enough leaving tantalizing little bits of evidence to suggest that something happened, even if we have no idea what it was, exactly?
Something – or a group of Somethings – is playing with us. But there are many kinds of games, some leisurely and others dastardly. The precise nature of this game is yet to be determined. Only time and further revelations will tell.

In the UFO encounters that are super-weird, it was mentioned above that there are three things of significance. They are as follows.

  1. We can never know that what people are seeing is what it appears to be. We don’t know that a ship is really a ship, the beings are really beings (as they appear or otherwise) and we don’t know that how they interact with the environment isn’t fundamentally a deception, be it intentional or the result of some mechanism casual or fundamental to whatever is causing the incident in the first place.
  2. We can never know that what we are taking to be technology of a sort we recognize is not a function of some other kind, be it “magical” or mystical, “psychic” or otherwise rooted in interface and interference with human cognition. We cannot know that a spaceship is not actually a wizard’s abode or a fairy castle. To some extent, the variance in these concepts does not matter, since it is fundamentally of human origin and based entirely upon our own preconceptions. If the Gods were Ancient Aliens, it is important to remember that functionally, it makes absolutely no difference what we call them if their operation and behavior is godlike. We can only kneel, if that is the case.
  3. We cannot truly understand the point of these interactions. Are they lessons? Jokes? Rare glimpses into the lives of the true rulers of the earth? We cannot know if we are slated for destruction fifty or sixty times a day by civilizations sinister and vastly more advanced, only to be saved by an invisible alien super species who defend our world out of a sentimental attachment of the sort we make with our pets.

Indeed, as Porno for Pyros once mentioned, We’ll Make Great Pets.
Or perhaps we already do.

Scientists think aliens could be living in other universes

Alien life could exist in other universes, according to a group of scientists studying a mysterious force known as dark energy.

Previous theories suggested our universe has the perfect amount of dark energy, which acts against gravity and is making the cosmos expand at an accelerated rate.

It was understood that any more would create such rapid expansion that stars and planets wouldn’t have time to form.

The multiverse theory, first put forward in the ’80s, said there was a “luckily small” amount of the force in our universe.

But researchers at Durham University in England claim these celestial bodies would still have formed even if a universe had 100 times the dark energy that ours does.

They used giant computer simulations to suggest that, if other universes exist, they may be just as likely to harbor life.

An artist’s rendition of a multiverse

“The formation of stars in a universe is a battle between the attraction of gravity and the repulsion of dark energy,” said professor Richard Bower of Durham University’s Institute for Computational Cosmology.

“We have found in our simulations that universes with much more dark energy than ours can happily form stars. So why such a paltry amount of dark energy in our universe?

“I think we should be looking for a new law of physics to explain this strange property of our universe and the Multiverse theory does little to rescue physicists’ discomfort.”

Their findings are published in two related papers in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

The density of gas after 13.8 billion years of evolution, featuring a universe with no dark energy, left, our universe, center, and a universe with 10 times more dark energy than our own

And their simulations were created using the EAGLE (Evolution and Assembly of Galaxies and their Environments) project – one of the most realistic programs mapping the observed universe.

The dark energy conundrum has plagued scientists for years, said Jaime Salcido, a postgraduate student of Durham University.

He added: “Our simulations show that even if there was much more dark energy or even very little in the universe then it would only have a minimal effect on star and planet formation.”

The widely accepted eternal inflation theory claims our universe came into existence with a brief burst that saw the universe expand at a rapid pace.

Some suggested this meant that, in some regions, the universe is still expanding and will continue to grow infinitely.

In doing so, it creates multiverses: an endless supply of universes much like our own, populated with Earth-like planets, societies and even individuals that resemble us.

Amazing Filtrations: What if Nibiru is a great Anunnaki spacecraft?

According to recent leaks, Nibiru is not the “destroyer” that supposedly approaches Earth. Nibiru, is a great interstellar ship of exorbitant dimensions that yes, it is coming towards the Earth, but it does not seek to destroy us. Nibiru, is a great interstellar entity related to us. And indeed it is related to the Anunnaki people, who have already been with us and will be once again.(nibiru)

nibiru

Nibiru is not a planet or a star or a brown dwarf. It is a spaceship. A planetary-sized spacecraft. It was artificially constructed and put into orbit as a “planet” around our binary (currently in the Kuiper Belt) to be used as God “ax” or instrument of punishment or judgment through two energy systems solar. It is larger than Earth and is equipped with ‘timeless’ technology that dates back millions of years, so its use is endless.

Not only can it attack or punish planets, it can also change its orbits and inclinations … or transform them. It has an incredible variety of energies, lasers and functions developed and incorporated throughout its history and travel, plus it has universal communication systems and special espionage units, with camouflage capabilities (just like the Star Trek ships) . It is supposed to have an orbit of 3,600 years, but this may not be a fixed length.

On board Nibiru are the Annunaki, as well as a variety of aliens or humanoids from our entire universe, including the reptilian, insectoid, gray, Pleiadian, Sirian, Arcturian, and so on infinitely (yes, once again, as in Star Trek) .. Where do you think they got the idea from Star Trek? It is a real collection that represents all forms of life and technologies through our solar system and beyond.

Nibiru already passed “close” to Earth and got rid of the dinosaurs, destroyed Maldek, caused the “universal floods”, and left the genetically improved human beings at various points in their history. Nibiru also contains a universal library with the knowledge of the history of all life in our sector of this universe. Nibiru is something like the Death Star in ‘Star Wars’, but it’s not necessarily bad. It simply works for what is designed, or to execute, and that is to patrol or monitor our part of the cosmos.

Many religions that speak of their God or of the Lord actually referred to Nibiru, which is the house or the source of all those belief systems. It also acts as the United Nations, for the discussion and resolution of interplanetary conflicts. He has great power and is feared and respected wherever he goes.

So, Nibiru is not our destroyer, scientifically it is not conceived the fact of the existence of wandering planets, since they would always be exposed to the gravitational forces of the different celestial bodies, and also they are not objects that can be manipulated at will. Nibiru is a massive interstellar ship that does; If you are at our address .. How do you stay? Watch the following video with more information about Nibiru from the hand of Planet Snakedos and his secret informant .. and do not forget to leave us your comment below!

Is There Any Plausible Reason Why Aliens Would Evolve To Look Like Us?

In science fiction movies and TV shows, intelligent aliens are usually the same basic shape as humans: two arms, two legs and a head. But why would creatures that evolved on a completely different planet look so similar to us? We asked some experts, and they told us the most likely explanations for humanoid aliens.

Top image: Artwork by Wayne Douglas Barlowe

The truth is, aliens tend to look like us in science fiction for a couple of basic reasons: budget, and relatability.

“Most aliens in SF are humanoid because humans produce SF,” says Michael H. New, an Astrobiology Discipline Specialist at NASA. “While we are interested in the ‘other,’ our conception of otherness is often limited.”

And a lot of experts firmly believe that aliens would not look at all like humans. For example, Stephen Jay Gould claims that life that evolved elsewhere would look totally different from us — and in fact, if you “reran the tape” from the beginning of life on Earth, you wouldn’t end up with humans on this planet either. The emergence of humanoids on Earth is a totally random event that was a fluke, even with the exact conditions that we arose from.

But let’s say that we do meet aliens, and they turn out to be bipeds with a roughly human-like shape… how do we explain that?

Panspermia

This is the most common explanation for creatures that look sort of like us turning up all over the universe. Either humanoid aliens spread their DNA across the galaxy to give rise to creatures in their image, or the DNA just spread through the galaxy on its own, on asteroids and stuff.

Star Trek: The Next Generation reaches for this explanation in the episode “The Chase,” pictured above. And it’s the centerpiece of the recent movie Prometheus, as well.

“I’m of the strong opinion that if humanoid aliens exist, they must have some genetic heritage in common with human beings,” says Mark A. Bullock with the Southwest Research Institute. He’d find that easier to believe than the notion that humanoids could evolve independently elsewhere. Plus “it’s been shown that panspermia is quite a viable mechanism, so the interchange of genetic material between worlds is not out of the question.”

If the galaxy really did turn out to be full of humanoid aliens, “some kind of panspermia wouldn’t be a bad explanation,” New tells io9. “We’re bilaterally symmetric and bipedal because our ancestors were.” It’s entirely possible that if certain events had played out differently, the dominant species on Earth would have had a very different shape.

The Burgess Shale, which is roughly 500 million years old, “displays a wide range of body plans, only some of which are still seen on the modern Earth,” adds New. So he believes you’d need some outside intervention to account for humanoid aliens.

Bullock sounds a similar note, saying that the Cambrian explosion, 600 million years ago, “saw a great deal of evolutionary experimentation with body plans,” some of which could be a glimpse of life forms that we might see on other planets.

At the same time, panspermia is only really likely at the microbial level, cautions Joan L. Slonczewski, a biology professor at Kenyon College and science fiction author whose books include A Door Into Ocean and The Highest Frontier. Beyond microbes, panspermia doesn’t really make much sense as an explanation for humans’ own development.

 

Convergent Evolution

Or maybe humanoids just evolved on other planets, separately from us, because they just arrived at the same destination via other paths?

There are certain things about humans that helped us rise over other primates, says James Kasting, a distinguished professor of Geoscience at Penn State University. Our opposable thumbs helped us grasp tree branches, and also hold tools. And walking upright was useful, as well. Finally, being warm-blooded helped us to power our big brains.

“I would think that there’s a good chance that intelligent alien life evolved in more or less the same way and would thus bear some resemblance to humans,” says Kasting. “Not necessarily a close resemblance, though.”

The upright-walking, bipedal, two-armed posture “seems to have evolved independently in various unlikely contexts, from meerkats to velociraptors,” notes Slonczewski. “Maybe it just makes sense to have two feet to move, two hands to manipulate something, and a sensory ‘head’ with as wide a view as possible. Then again, that’s what we have, so it makes sense to us.”

We’ve seen enough examples of convergent evolution on Earth to believe that it could happen on other planets as well, notes Steven J. Dick, the 2013-2014 Baruch S. Blumberg NASA/Library of Congress Chair in Astrobiology at the Library of Congress. “For example, the eye has been reinvented many times independently, as have wings in insects, birds and bats. Fish and marine mammals such as dolphins have evolved streamlined shapes for their water environment.”

Dick recommends the 1981 book Life in Darwin’s Universe: Evolution and the Cosmos by Gene Bylinsky, which argues that “a limited number of engineering solutions” are possible when it comes to successful life forms.

But Dick adds that you can’t discount environmental factors which would ensure that life on other planets would look at least somewhat different, including gravity. Dick tells io9:

Because they would have been shaped by their own unique planetary environments, organisms would be different from us in the particulars, just as there is great diversity of life on Earth, including the different requirements of land and water organisms. More generally, gravity imposes size limitations on life; from the cell to the whale is a large range indeed, but the food system of the whale (and the dinosaur on land) must strain to feed such a large structure, even as the heart struggles to sustain its blood flow. Life on a low-gravity planet might be free to soar upward both in the plant and animal kingdom, while life on a high-gravity planet would be correspondingly stifled.

Bilateral Symmetry

Let’s say that the notion of aliens separately evolving bodies that have more or less a human silhouette is kind of unlikely — it’s still possible that bilateral symmetry could be a constant among intelligent life forms, say some experts. This refers to the fact that your left and right sides are more or less the same, with an eye, an ear, an arm and a leg on either side.

“Bilateral symmetry appeared independently several different times in the evolution of larger organisms on Earth,” says Bullock. “So bilateral symmetry may be a common feature of intelligent life, regardless of whether its specific body plan.”

And once you get bilateral symmetry, you are going to start drifting in the direction of a vaguely humanoid body plan, argues Bjørn Østman with Michigan State University. The symmetry means you’ll have an even number of limbs — which is most likely going to be four, rather than six or more, which don’t convey enough of an advantage to justify the extra limbs.

“Even on earth there are lots of animals that have more than two pairs of limbs,” concedes Østman. “But I think that the reason why we have lots and lots of animals that hva four limbs is that that’s highly advantageous. It just happens to be mechanically a very good solution to traversing a rugged landscape.”

And once you have a lot of quadripeds on land, one of those quadripeds is going to start using its front limbs to manipulate tools. “If you can free two limbs to manipulate tools, then it becomes very advantageous to develop high intelligence,” notes Østman.

So assuming an intelligent alien is symmetrical and has some of its limbs devoted to tool use, then it might end up being roughly bipedal, says Østman. And the sensory organs, like eyes, will have to be forward-looking and not too far away from the tool-using limbs. Which means you end up with something like a head, because the nervous system will be close to the sensory organs for maximum efficiency.

Thus those two factors — symmetry and tool use — may lend themselves to something at least vaguely similar to a human shape, in Østman’s view.

“If we were to eventually find other intelligent life in the universe, they would be humanoid, I think,” Østman concludes. “I find that a high probability.” But at the same time, he admits he’s in the minority, and most other scientists agree with Gould that humanoid life is unlikely to evolve elsewhere.
