Still watching the skies June 19, 2021

I find this stuff here very strange. I love UFOs, or rather stuff about them, but I love them, as noted previously here, from a profoundly sceptical point of view. In other words I’d be astounded if they were alien technologies of any sort. Nothing about the phenomena makes any logical sense were that their provenance. For example, consider the interactions with people, the strangeness of the sightings, the behaviours. Were these alien beings who had travelled to Earth across light years from another star system their technologies would be so advanced we quite possibly wouldn’t notice them – for example ships would be stealthed, surveillance technologies used by them would be likely near undetectable (nano probes distributed through the atmosphere would do the job a lot better than largish flying vehicles that were actually visible to us indigenous inhabitants). In fact even with our own technologies these days we could probably do a better job. And it’s that patchiness, that sort of uncanny slapdash aspect to this that makes me think these are artefacts of our psychologies rather than anything else (I’ve recommended a book on this before too – Jim Schnabel’s Dark White, well worth a read).

That said, there does appear to be some material base for the objects seen by US military personnel and caught on film. But, I’d still think that for all the talk about the technologies being far in advance of any used by humans that’s a bit of a stretch. And not just me, on the footage below there’s an astronaut who argues that while genuine they’re more likely to be secret military technology.

One theory is that UAPs could be advanced Chinese or Russian aircraft, but Burchett dismissed that in his TMZ interview.

“I think that’s ridiculous. If the Russians had UFO technology, they would own us right now,” he said. “It has to be something that’s, that’s out of our galaxy, it just has to be, if it is in fact is real.”

Elizondo also dismissed those suggestions.

“We are quite convinced that we’re dealing with a technology that is multigenerational, several generations ahead of what we consider next generation technology, so what we would consider beyond next generation technology,” Elizondo told the Post. “Something that could be anywhere between 50 to 1,000 years ahead of us.”

Elizondo is an interesting guy, though perhaps not for what he’s talking about above – amongst others Fortean Times recently had a rather sharp analysis of what he has been saying about UFOs (noting that of a list of “five ‘observables uniquely associated with UAP’s…commentators have stressed that these observables are all subject to human interpretation and error”). But the logic of the first part of the first comment holds true whether it is aliens or Russians or Chinese. If these are alien craft they too could, as it were ‘own us’. Which raises the question as to why they don’t.

 Moreover – and coming back to the point above, the technologies do not seem to 1,000 years ahead of us. Indeed that 50 to 1,000 years line is absurd. Something a millennia ahead will likely – to riff on Arthur C. Clarke’s comment – seem like magic compared to something 50 years ahead. That’s a ridiculously long period of time. And the stuff about out of our galaxy is empty rhetoric (the solar system is not the galaxy). 

Of course, perhaps this more sceptical take is wrong. Perhaps these are alien craft. Perhaps.

Regardless of whether or not they’re real. I think the important point is the pivotal role the CLR played in bringing UFO’s back into the zeitgeist.

It’s just the MIC trying to get more dosh for the US Space Force. We need to protect against aliens!

My inner sceptic and cynic align to agree with you!
