I do belive it has something to do with Project Blue Beam - tldr; hypnosis+holographic projections. Add some avanced cloning stuff to create "aliens" - which are belived by some ppl to be bodies created seperately that are possesed by demons and voila, you got it.
If you timeline UFO events it tracks back to the war and Germany. If you assume Flying Saucers (as they were back then) are man made then the aliens are humans experiments. If you timeline human genetics technology progress along side alien reports you will notice correlations.
If you look at old UFO footage it becomes obvious those craft aren't suited to interstellar travel. Even back in 1896 the Aurora, Texas airship crash the Army Signal Corp. suggested the craft came from Mars to the newspapers.
Aliens are the perfect diversion for advanced human secret (illegal) tech.
Its an interesting rabbit hole to fall down.
but does this mean that there are no aliens at all, or just that we haven't seen any of them yet?
We honestly don't know. Discovering that there is or isn't aliens is equally a big deal.
I hope there are, being alone out here would be a big disappointment. Even some microscopic life or very animalistic/primitive stuff that we find would be better than nothing IMO.
I imagine bacteria will be common. Panspermia suggests simple life on Earth comes from space. Some even suggest the flu might actually rain down on us from space.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panspermia
I think plants and animals would be likely somewhere.
Intelligent life is interesting to contemplate because they may have existed and then, like us discovered nukes, it is a very tricky time because it only takes one idiot to end it all.
How many times did intelligent life not make it through the Nukes test or other high energy technology? And will we?
we have so far done a good job of not killing ourselves, I think we could make it to spacefaring if we can survive (((their))) plans for us.
I think we could have become a space faring civilisations shortly after WW2 but we instead changed our focus to one uping each other and secretly working out better ways to kill each other.
Divert military spending to spacecraft development and we would already be on a few planets and moons.
Instead we prefer to kill each other.
The tech already exists, but it is classified.
and to some extent, wasn't our one-upping each other based off of (((their))) intent to force us into a mutually assured death?
perhaps. But even if (((they))) didn't exist wouldn't there always be predators in any system. Shouldn't we be able to resist all predators?
if (((they))) didn't exist, it's quite likely that we'd be the apex predators, and not require any resistance on our part except from external threats.
Interesting response. Plausible.
Back to "Aliens as a coverup":
1977 - Senate Hearing on MKULTRA
1978 - nuclear physicist and author Stanton T. Friedman starts interviewing Jesse Marcel regarding Roswell UFO Incident
1979 - a Nazi Flying Disk landed in Germany and was photographed multiple times. >>>/mlpol/56131 →
1980 - GENE CLONING: Stanley Norman Cohen and Herbert Boyer received first U.S. patent for gene cloning – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History%20of%20genetics#The_genomics_era
1980 - The first conspiracy book about Roswell UFO Incident was The Roswell Incident by Charles Berlitz (13 years US Army, mostly intelligence
) and Bill Moore (ufologist) (1989 MUFON conference, Moore claimed: did “disinformation” against Bennewitz for AFOSI - United States Air Force Office of Special Investigations
Timelining events is very interesting. And we can see that the grey alien idea is associated to military psyops and occurs around the time we develop cloning.
Just a coincidence.
