The Extraterrestrial Robot Invasions?

You know my view about alien UFO intrusions: the Earth is so remote and insignificant in context of our galaxy and the Universe even more so that no extraterrestrial culture or society would bypass all the wonders in the Universe or our galaxy to make a wayside adventure to this lonely speck in the all.

However, for the sake of argument, let me offer that an advanced extraterrestrial civilization with unlimited resources and curiosity might send forth a slew of robotic entities (in UFOs) to explore all worlds that evince a spate of existence (life) and/or intelligence.

If that were the case, this might explain some odd UFO events (if we exclude some prosaic or conjectured explanations), such as:

The experience of Ezekiel in The Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) whose vehicle, as described by the prophet, is more like a mechanical device than a metaphorical attempt at symbolism to make a religious point.
The 1951 Fred Reagan “abduction” where he was drawn 9from within his aircraft) into a UFO that contained small, glistening beings that looked like stalks of “metallic asparagus.”
The 1954 Quaroble Nord, France where Marias Dewilde saw 2 four feet tall “beings” lookingv as if they had on diving suits.
The 1957 Old Saybrook, Connecticut sighting by Mary Starr who spotted 2 figures (about 4 feet tall) with raised, right arms (no hands), squarish red-orange heads with a red-bulb in the center (which she thought might be helmets).
The 1965 Jerry Townsend sighting of three beer-can-like robots that exited from a rocket-shaped object.
The 1977 Lee Parrish observation (from a hypnotic regression session) of a “three  machine-like beings (one 20 feet tall and the others about 6 feet tall),  tombstone-shaped, (one white, the others black) that were featureless and eventually merging like those Russian nesting dolls.
The 1977 La Rubia event
 The 1979 Robert Taylor encounter, seen, sensibly, as an epileptic seizure, but could have been a robotic probe.
The 1989  Voronezh episode seen by several children and a police officer, with a description of a "three-eyed alien" and a robot exiting the craft.

  • The 1951 Fred Reagan “abduction” creature seems to bear some superficial resemblance to the 'creatures' in the Pascagoula Incident http://www.ufoevidence.org/cases/case97.htm

  • Somewhat Dr. Dee.

    Reagan remembered his "event" under hypnosis, so one has to have caveats about what that produced.

  • Well if nothing else some cool illustrations.

    On the use of robotic humanoids and the like, it's still a mental stretch to think that such devices might survive intact for thousands of years while they travel here.

    Of course if they are programmed to flip a switch and go into superluminal hyperspace travel with a 60 minute flight time from take-off to landing that would something to else to ponder.

    Personally, it seems to me that if there is a nonhuman intelligence behind these visitations, it (or they) has purposely tailored it's visual appearance to match mankind's social and technological expectations.

    Eons ago, in the middle ages, we believed in earth spirits, sprites, fairy people, little forrest nomes and the like. Before that a pantheon of Greek and Roman Gods.

    People back then, like now, claimed to have seen all of them.

    In the 18th and 19th Centuries, during the emergence of the hot air balloon, our little friends appeared as mysterious travelers in massive dirigible-like airships.

    In the period referenced above, mankind focused his thoughts on space travel and robotic devices. Hence our visitors masqueraded as robotic humanoids in round saucer shaped metallic vehicles.

    In the 1970's people claimed they were simply tall human-like visitors from Venus or some other planetary body in our own solar system.

    Given that today in the modern age we have science that can prove none of these beings live where they said they did, our little friends have decided to disguise themselves as visitors from planetary systems beyond our reach.

  • But Brian,

    One might assume that people saw what they saw, and interpreted their observations via the cultural milieu of the time.

    Whether what they saw were extraterrestrial entities or some other manifestation is debatable, including a psychopathic etiology.

    To dismiss such massive observations, over time, seems intellectually churlish to me.

  • Indeed.

    I suppose you could go both ways with cultural milieu; an essential factor critical to witness interpretation (but rarely correctly considered with ufology).

    1) Entities purposely reveal themselves through the culural milieu of the human era....

    AND/OR

    2) People interpret their observations of such entities through their own cultural milieu....

    I don't think they're necessarily mutually exclusive.

    And then there are the motives of the witness and whatever it is they observe, assuming of course it's intelligent.

    For example, we can conclude a hunter who observes Sasquatch might have a motive, or he might not.

    Then there's Sasquatch. What's his motive for being observed, if any?

    Same can be applied to Dogmen, Gobblins, Flying Humanoids, and Grey Aliens.

  • Brian:

    I'm not big on physical manifestations as those you've cited. I lean more toward an hallucinatory explanation.

    However, I'm not ready to dismiss, out of hand, such observations as neurological or psychological,

    There may be ghosts, goblins, fairies, or grey aliens afoot. I just don't see proof for any, including Bigfoot.

    Maybe the observations creates the things.

  • Yes,

    And once again we don't know because witnesses are not evaluated fully to rule out the psychological or medical related factors that may induce them. Not to mention the environmental factors either.

    But oddly, I recently read in Psychology Today (agreed not really a peer reviewed scientific publication) that some Psychogists, based on some actual research, believe people might be contacted by their dead ancestors in their dream state.

    Real ghosts, not ones dreamed up (no pun intended).

  • I think Eric Wargo, at his thenightshirt.com site would find that interesting, Brian.

  • I'm in on the hallucination theory. If we want to define the signal amid the noise that I'm looking for I'd want to see more than one example of the phenomena.

  • Bryan:

    You have several examples above.

    What is the commonality in them?

  • "The experience of Ezekiel in The Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) whose vehicle, as described by the prophet, is more like a mechanical device than a metaphorical attempt at symbolism to make a religious point."

    I'm curious why you assume a mechanical device and a metaphorical attempt at symbolism can't be the same thing. Ezekiel was describing a giant, impossible chariot, or maybe wagon would be better term (to use modern vocabulary). The Hebrews had spent hundred of years in Babylon, and therefore were well familiar with the Babylonian festivals where idols of the Babylonian gods were wheeled around the city in large wagons. The point of Ezekiel's vision was to say, "Look, the Hebrew god has a wagon larger and grander than any Babylonian god, therefore he's better! His wagon is the entirety of the heavens!"

  • Scott:

    Yes, that's a valid assumption. But I see virtually literal descriptions by Biblical writers; that is, what is recounted is what was actually seen or experienced.

    Putting a analogous or metaphorical patina on such accounts provides a clue to the mind-set of those making such assumptions, whereas I like to think what was written (in UFO accounts too) was what was actually seen or witnessed.

    Persons, old or new, weren't being cute and trying to create a "vision" to make some of kind of statement.
