Alien/Extraterrestrial thinking and technology are too flawed to be real
In my posting about water is gold for UFOs, I note that the Earth is insignificant or inconsequential in the galactic scheme of things: it’s remote and unnoticeable, slight of planetary size, and without prominence of any kind….except for its surfeit of water.
If alien travelers stumbled upon it, they would very likely be astonished at the amount of water the surface contains, something extraordinary, even among those places noted by a commenter – the rings of Saturn or the outer moons cited.
The Earth is a unique place, mostly because of its water content, and the rather pure condition of that water, compared to those other cited sources, where any water is contaminated by chemicals and elements that detract from H2O.
This allows that old conjecture that the alleged Roswell crash derived from a flying disk that was struck by lightning at the time.
An alien craft, traveling through the vicissitudes of time, wormhole, or space itself, being downed by lightning is a stretch, but if an alien craft were from a time or place where there were no storms or water to create rain/storms and lightning, one can imagine a scenario where a lightning bolt could bring down a craft from elsewhere besides Earth.
But that Roswell suggestion is unique to the Roswell lore and beside the point here, a digression I needed to get off my chest.
What I’m dealing with here are those UFO events – not sightings in the sky – but the reported incidents where creatures are seen embarking from a strange object or craft and interacting with humans.
As noted by Spanish UFO researcher Jose Antonio Caravaca, in his citations for us here and at his blog/site, the “beings” reported act in bizarre ways that demean intelligence enhanced enough to travel through space or time.
The activities are psychotic-like, which allows for a consensus that the reports are the product of a delusional, hallucinatory witness or witnesses, a project of a deranged mind, often temporary, or a neurological twist that is momentary.
But if the event is reported as experienced by a sane normal witness, the beings from the UFO act in ways that make no sense and use technology that doesn’t bespeak an advanced civilization or culture.
For instance the approach and demeanor of the beings is rarely cautionary as one would expect from sophisticated space travelers.
The beings move erratically toward witnesses as if the witness(es) can do them no harm or are free of human germs, illnesses, or weapons that can hurt them.
Some will say that the beings are robotic and that’s a possibility, although the accounts seem to offer activity that is not robotic as we understand the term.
Asking for (again) water or objects of a mundane nature makes little or no sense.
And using ray guns to paralyze witnesses is too sci-fi-like to bequeath it to advanced alien travelers.
A civilization that was able to traverse space or time would seem likely to have some other method to disable a human, other than a Captain Video ray gun.
The apparel is generally Earth-fashioned, a projection upon beings that indicate the experience comes from the mind of the witness or alien beings live in a retro world that is stuck in the Earth’s past periods or a world that isn’t anywhere advanced enough to permit travels to far flung regions of the galaxy or universe – too old fashioned, as it were.
Then there is the rocket-like approach or departure of their “craft” as in the Socorro incident of those enumerated by Señor Caravaca and other ufologists.
An advanced civilization would seem likely to have a propulsion system devoid of rocket aftermath.
And finally, a species that takes an unscientific methodology to confront human beings, on side roads or empty spaces with little or no value to a well-traveled space-traveling armada, is loopy, even if one countenances the idea that we can’t fathom the alien mind.
The whole panoply of UFO stories about creatures or beings from space actually landing by human beings and presenting themselves in ways that are less than advanced makes scenarios that are human-oriented rather than actual accounts of outer space species interacting with humans.
And the mundane sub-text of those reported encounters reminds me of a Jackie Gleason, Honeymooners sketch where Ralph creates a space outfit with a funnel-created ray gun for a Halloween contest at his lodge.
Now, UFOs without the attending creature reports, that’s another matter altogether.
