UFO's & other anomalies ... do you believe? — Page 3

My mother and grandmother both saw a UFO in West Virginia when my mother was very small, and they both still remember it. They were walking down the street one afternoon and a bright light seemed to follow them, and when they stopped at the corner and turned onto another street the light did a 90 degree turn as well. They started to get scared and run, and the light followed them, apparently disappearing before they reached home. Neither of them has any idea what it could have been.

I think there’s some compelling evidence that alien life has visited this planet, yet the sheer number of faked sightings and simple public incredulity is enough to lead most people to conclude that it hasn’t happened. Many governments have half-admitted that strange things are going on in the skies, but nobody wants to put their reputation on the line or provide the extraordinary amount of evidence required to back up such an extraordinary claim. It is often covered-up, compartmentalized, and eventually forgotten.

Now I don’t necessarily think that alien life traversed the cosmos and just so happened to land on Earth. There’s a lot about science and consciousness that we don’t know. I expect that most sightings are caused by natural atmospheric phenomena, hallucinations, and human technology. For the few that remain, I suspect that they may be alien in origin.

Of course, SETI and other programs have had very little success in this department. There has to be a reason that we haven’t received any response to our messages, and my theory is that life doesn’t exist for very long in any form resembling that of humans. If it did, and sentient life forms such as humans existed in large quantities and for long periods of time, one would expect the cosmos to be filled with alien spaceships and civilizations contacting each other with radio and visible light radiation.

Furthermore, this should be taken into account. In short, it is more likely that we are, by number, a common type of alien on an uncommonly large world. The analogy used is one of countries on Earth. If we were to randomly be assigned a country of origin, we would likely be born in China or India, since they have high populations. Moreover, since most people on Earth originate on those two countries, these countries must be large enough to support such a large population. Thus, our planet is likely to be larger and more populous than average, with most planets supporting intelligent life being smaller and less populous. Earth is essentially the China of the cosmos, with most planets being like Denmark or Sweden. Since the gravity of those planets is lessened, the intelligent life would on average be larger. Also, and this is only my speculation, since there is decreased gravity, any smaller planet with an atmosphere would have more particulate matter in that atmosphere, leading to much greater cloud cover. Such species wouldn’t be able to search the heavens as easily as we do, so most of the galactic exploration is done by a relatively small number of large planets with much smaller than average aliens. There may be a reason why the popular conception of an alien is of a small humanoid with a large braincase.

Anyway, those are my rambling and speculative thoughts on the subject. 😃

Aliens could also be so advanced, the way they communicate is way beyond anything we’ve even thought of yet. It would be like trying to pick up color tv signals on an AM radio.
They also could be so far above us, we’re not considered worth talking to, if they notice us at all.

But eventually one of us will make the Warp Drive and they’ll have to pay attention to us.

This is my suspicion. I think that many species either leapfrog over long-distance electromagnetic communication for more advanced science, or they are ‘tuned in’ to something more like telepathy. But that would get into philosophical theory of mind, and this is a UFO thread 😉

the aliens that did visit in the 40’s and 50’s, put big warning signs just outside our solar system, saying ‘warning, rabid life forms’. that is why we haven’t seen anymore.

Heck, transparent aluminum is already here, Warp Drive has got to be next.

If I see a flying thing I cannot put a name to it exists in some way. By that definition I do not know it to be an alien space craft or a military spy drone or a glitch in the virtual reality that surrounds me. There are more probable explanations most of the time. But most of the time isn’t all of the time.

Btw, this never happened.

Thank you.

Anybody who wants to sit on their high horse and mock other people’s stories in here, best ride that horse elsewhere.

That sounds a bit like ball lightning, which is pretty freaky and rare.

isn’t ball lightning something that we don’t even know if it is a real thing? or better put, we have no scientific understanding of at all.

Sounds like something from one of those kids cartoons I never watched.

As a kid I have lived in a nice little town surrounded by mountains. I spent lots of time “outside” and I have seen many UFO’s. BTW UFO = unidentified flying object. In other words I have seen many strange flying objects which I couldn’t identify. Could it be aliens? Sure, but it could be literally ANYTHING. As a kid I had many strange dreams, where I e.g. woke up during the night in a strange place and strange little grey “doctors” were “treating” me - it happened so often that I learned a trick how to “get out” (opening my eyes extremely wide open and staring at the ceiling while concentrating on me wanting to be in my room). Does it mean I used to be regularly abducted by aliens? That’s the same thing like with the UFOs - it could be ANYTHING, maybe even nightmares caused by the junk food I ate that day.

That’s my biggest problems with things like UFOs or alien encounters - while they do make interesting stories, all of these things can be explained in many different ways. I haven’t seen anything, any “proof” where “aliens did it” would be the only possible explanation.

I think there’s been some research into why people have dreams like that. Something to do with sleep paralysis, IIRC. Why little grey guys doing weird medical things is a common theme, I have no idea. It might have been little red chaps with pitchforks for people in the distant past.

It could have been that, though they are specific in that it did a 90 degree turn and followed them up the road. Perhaps it was following the power lines.

I wonder what the area they were in boasts in magnetic field intensity? There are some anomalies that could very well be, sentient, for lack of a better term.

I apoligize for the bump, but given the timing:-

‘The US Navy has confirmed that certain purported UFO videos made public over the past several years do indeed show “unidentified aerial phenomena”’ - https://twitter.com/CNN/status/1174651880305307648

I always knew it would be the Navy that folded first - see you all at Area 51 tomorrow 😉
