As Long As They're Here, They Might as Well Make Themselves Useful.


Next month, the US will release a report on everything (almost) the government knows about UFOs, now called UAPs or Unmanned Aerial Phenomenon.  The report is expected to include scores of sightings by military pilots.

For decades it was feared that rumors might stampede the public into a War of the Worlds panic. Those fears were shown unfounded when the Pentagon released video of unknown vehicles recorded by sensors aboard F-18 Super Hornets. Aside from the odd story on the evening TV news, it was a yawner. I guess with Trump still in the White House, Americans had more on their minds than little green men and their odd little capsules.

It's hard to imagine that the next report will send Americans running into the streets. Fair enough, but, if we (they) conclude that another form of intelligent life exists among us, maybe they should make themselves useful. With the knowledge they must have to manage inter-galactic travel, helping us deal with the climate crisis should be a snap. Same thing with these pandemics. They might even have a few tips on how homo sapiens can live in harmony with our own spaceship, Earth. We're going to have to figure that out eventually, unless nature sorts us out first. 

Or maybe they're just here to measure for curtains, preparing to become the next global civilization once the clutter, i.e, homo sapiens, is cleaned up.


  1. I suspect the latter is the case, Mound. Perhaps they gad about the galaxy looking for worlds to save and have concluded ours is not worthy of consideration.

  2. The green men may have been in the process of determining whether there's any possibility that we can be of any use to them other than to provide specimens for their research and assets for their zoos or other entertainment venues, in the case and provided that they have an inclination and capacity to be entertained.

    It was obvious that the US government was testing reaction to the release of information that could produce a public shock when it acknowledged that the Armenian genocide had occurred.

  3. Perhaps the powers-that-be are distracting us from a fossil-fuel-nuclear-Ecocrisis-driven future?

    "It is the nature of intelligent life to destroy itself

    This is the argument that technological civilizations may usually or invariably destroy themselves before or shortly after developing radio or spaceflight technology."
    ... Fermi Paradox

  4. Yes, NPoV. I'm quite familiar with the paradox. Given that it arises out of greed and our inner quest for conquest and glory it is the very manifestation of human nature. If humanity inspired a new car design, Icarus would be the perfect hood ornament.

  5. This is another testimony on how Chief Dr Lucky cured my HIV disease. Do you need a cure for your HIV disease? Do you want to be cured from your cancer disease? Or you want to be free from any type of disease. Kindly visit his website . He just cured my HIV disease and I’m very grateful to him, he is the only herbalist that can cure you.
