An Extraterrestrial Artificial Intelligent Surveillance?
On October 2nd, 1978, four boys (pictured above), of Despatch, South Africa, claimed they saw a "gleaming, metallic dome” from which three silver clad entities suddenly appeared, one of them carrying a grayish box despite not appearing to have arms:
The beings didn’t express leg movement but glided, and swiftly moved away from the metallic dome, moving over a fence and then disappearing near the top of a hill.
Police officers, checking the spot where the boys allege they saw the beings, found eight “puzzling imprints in the ground.”
A geologist from the University of Port Elizabeth took measurements of the imprints and found them to be symmetrical and oval, 43 feet by 21 feet in size, each imprint made up of three impressions, “in the shape of a triangle.”
This story, if true, by David Barritt and Malcolm Balfour in the Enquirer adds one more anecdotal footnote to the idea that UFOs may be dispatched AI machines manned by robots.
