Are we using Alien Tech today? #5

-:VB:-

So, are we really using Alien Tech today?
Depends on how you want to look at it.

You can turn a blind eye towards all of this, and go back to playing Candy Crush on your iPhones. Or, you can think over it, and maybe for once you might actually see what is happening around you.

All these advancements are maybe a false predicament. Maybe the governments of this world are  trying to fool you into believing that they are really this much powerful. But, if they are so powerful, how did events like Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings happen? How in the name of God did humans go from TNT sticks to Nuclear power all of a sudden?

How did the Chernobyl disaster happen? If we create something, we have the capacity to stop it. How could this have not been prevented?

How did the Hubble telescope get to be so powerful that it can view galaxies light years away from us? We are struggling to work at the Nano-level, and at the Genetic-level but we can see very bright and clearly into the vast emptiness of space with accuracy and sharpness.
What are the possibilities of this happening?

Maybe we might learn the truth about all of this, and maybe we'll never be able to get the facts straight.
But, we can always keep our mind open to the possibility of this happening.

All we have to do till then is keep searching for answers to questions that we are unsure of, for events we cannot map, for times we cannot calculate, for history that we cannot justify, and for proof that that we are most uncertain about.

All this to understand something, for answers which we may never get...


That concludes this string of posts.

Are we using Alien Tech today? #4

Moving onto more advancements.

LHC - The Large Hadron Collider, can create conditions that precede the formation of the universe itself.
But we cannot guarantee the safety of launch and return of our own space flights.

Cloning, Viruses - We can create bio-weapons, new forms of life, play with DNAs and Genes, but we cannot safeguard our species from illnesses and deformities. None of this fits together. Som.ething as simple and as ancient as the common cold still remains untreated

Now, all of this is very odd, as it is impossible to believe these facts.
What if Area 51 is for real?
What if Aliens are here on this Earth living amongst us?
What if we are secretly kidnapping them or holding them as hostages and promising them freedom in exchange for their technology?
What if we have destroyed them and stole their technology, and modifying and using their technology for our purpose and benefit?
None and yet everything among this might be largely possible. Why these questions arise, is the most important questions of them all.
Firstly, it is human nature to take something that we don't have and use it for our benefit. Why do you suppose most wars happen? For resources, for profits... it's all strictly business.
Secondly, we take something that is not our's and label it as ours. Look at countries attacking and acquiring other countries.

These are what the history of humans is built upon. Selfishness drives us to great lengths, and compels us to take some really gruesome steps.

All our tech is really hard to have faith in when we have people like these....

Are we using Alien Tech today? #3

-:VB:-

There are so many devices that have been churned out from thin air in the past few centuries.
Take the steam engine, or satellites, or automobiles for example. Where were these technologies for the past thousands of years since mankind is on this planet.
Why now?
All of a sudden, it is not possible for us to create something as remarkable as the internet, or wireless telecommunication. If ours is an ever-evolving brain, shouldn't these and millions of ideas have come up in those earlier years? How did we come to possess this unbelievable technology?

If you were to revive an 80s era person from hibernation, and show him this world... how do you think he would react?
Right! He would drive a stake through your heart thinking of you as a vampire, or burn you for witchcraft. :)

Seriously, the person would be devastated.

Think about the flash drive. We haven't found a replacement for something as precious as saving trees, but we have pocket sized Hard drives that can store Zentabytes of data.

Touch screen phones - Might be a tad bit funny, but think over it. How is it possible to develop something so complex and make it yet sooo affordable. How you can touch a screen, and connect to the world?

Automobiles - This is the most obvious one. Inventing a wheel takes thousands of years, but creating a vehicle takes only a few decades? Who believes this crap?

As I go on posting, I am curiouser and curiouser...

If you think about it, it's been centuries since the wheel was invented.
Till date I don't believe that there is something as innovative and as creative that has been made by mankind. Of course, we may have reached the moon, but there is no next best thing after the wheel.

There is hardly any evidence of how these ancient technologies came into existence. Take some long lost civilizations for example, like the advancements found at Machu Pichu or devices like the Antikythera mechanism and others.
The scientists are able to explain how these developed after years of research, but developing something even remotely close to this, with so much technology, resources, and ideas, no one has even come close to something that can beat the Wheel!

My belief is that... what if ... these aliens visited our planet before their planet was destroyed, and gave us the idea of the wheel?
OR
If the aliens found out that we were the dumbest in the universe, and they tried to make us smart?
OR

Possibilities are endless. But, the real topic at hand is - do we possess their technology?
I might have to agree on this one for once. I do doubt it!

Are we using Alien Tech today? #1

-:VB:-

Everyone has that tiniest speck of belief within the deepest depths of our minds that aliens do exist in the universe! thanks to the movies and stories, we are now thinking what no mind ever thought before.

Hell, sometimes I don't even know if people are really sane...

Thank you Mr. Spielberg for putting E.T. within our minds and giving us a perspective of how to handle alien life! :P
Thank you Ridley Scott for making us believe that the "Alien" is a very scary creature that will burst our chests to be born into this world.


I would also like to thank the Conspiracy theorists, and those novelists who introduced the terms probing in a... well... in an inappropriate manner. If not for them, I wonder where all this would have ended up...

But, all this does make make you want to think twice about things. We can never be really sure as to how a topic like Aliens came into existence. You never know, it may be true after all....

My doubts arise with the technology that we possess today. Have you ever looked at all those gadgets around you and wondered how they were invented? I mean - you have been on this planet since your birth, but you for sure have not invented any single gadget, let alone a wheel, how do these inventions get invented?

The wheel itself took decades of insanity.... I mean Humanity to evolve.
How do these creations get created? How come we never think of any of this?
Come on... I mean, believing in the billion minds, billion ideas theory is utter nonsense.


For once, even a singing and dancing frog will make sense...

My answer to all of this would be: ALIENS!
