So I listen to KFI AM 640
late at night as I'm driving home, mainly because KNX 1070
is playing some oldie's radio show. Coast to Coast AM
is usually on and, in their usual pattern, they'll talk about aliens
and other weird anomolies.
I don't think that UFO's exist in the way that the media
traditionally displays them. The reason is, our society has only advanced to the pre-nanotech era. In order to travel between stars, nanotechnology
would be a necessary advancement for alien races. Given that they would probably be in the well-developed Nanotechnology age, or most likely, heavy into quantumtechnology
, it would be reasonable to assume that they wouldn't need "traditional" UFO's
in order to travel in interstellar space.
What is more likely is that some of these "UFO's" are either figments of people's imagination or military research (like Area 51), or disinformation put out by the CIA to prevent other countries from learning some of our military secrets.
Aliens with fully-developed Quantum Technology would not need the "traditional" spacecrafts because they could utilize other forms of transportation. In addition, they would be able to morph their bodies to appear identical to us, in every way. At this level of technology, space and time is only a method by which we think, not the reality in which we live.
So, UFO's as commonly described are not real, but another fear that the media preys upon in order to get you to watch advertising and buy more products to safeguard your home from aliens attacking us from distant worlds. Or something like that.
