ETs would be advanced beings wouldn't they?
While reading Marvin Minsky’s The Society of Mind [Simon and Schuster, NY, 1985/1986] to offer the view that machines can evolve to produce “damage,” I ended up inside the book shown here, essays from cognitive scientists about the evolution of the mind.
This caused me to reflect on the UFO events I like: sightings where beings are seen and interacting with the observer or the environment.
If an advanced species have arrived and continue to arrive here at Earth, one would not expect them to engage in the activities that witnesses have outlined or reported.
This would seem to intercept the idea(s) that UFO travelers would pick up flora and fauna in such a haphazard way or mingle with this planet’s population is such silly manners as reported by witnesses.
An advanced mind would behave in ways that appear rational and not in the often clownish or mischievous ways that witnesses have provided.
Unless the species were inherently defective mentally, which would belie their ability to traverse the galaxy or universe as ET believers propose.
This seems to augment the conjecture that witnesses were projecting their own interpretation of extraterrestrial behavior on an hallucination they had.
Even UFO sightings of lights or things in the sky are irrational, if those lights or things were piloted by advanced beings.
The maneuvers and trajectories (flight patterns) are irrational, even dangerous.
But the creature sightings are what one would not expect from an advanced thinking species, unless created beings, universally, are inherently insane, as seems to be the case here with our own humanity.
