Archives for posts with tag: extra terrestrial

That’s a REALLY polemic issue so if you are faint at heart please stop reading it. I had lunch with a good friend and we were talking about gadgets and tech when after years i learned he was one of them. The believers. I’m really not either one thing or the other but still i can’t pretend i don’t get amazed by the power of imagination. For some reason i realized the topic never came up because when it did my friend came out of the closet: He is an active believer. In case some of you don’t know what i’m talking about there’s a huge amount of people who not just believe that extra terrestrial life is a possibility (that i too believe) but they are sure it’s happening right here and right now for as long as life on earth existed. They claim aliens lives among us in disguise performing important things for the benefit of mankind. Surely those workers in the japanese nuclear plant were aliens who were kind enough to take the heat for human beings. My friend was trying to explain to me why he was sure Einstein was an alien and also Jesus Christ. For what i understood from that conversation many of you probably believe in things like that as well. There are other factions as the ones who believe they are here collecting data and someday they’ll end our world. There’s one really radical that i can relate with. They say we are the aliens dropped on earth millions of years ago. That could be possible in my point of view. The fact is the aliens are here in the mind of a great amount of people and it’s interesting to wonder why does that happen. Maybe in this plural world we live just to have a god is not enough anymore. We need heroes and aliens and celebrities and thinkers to show us the way and tell us what to do. Maybe we are getting really worried about what a dump is our planet becoming and we are trying to find an easy way out. E.T. phone home.

I forgot about this book a long time ago but when o was a kid it used to haunt me. The idea that humans were spawn by aliens is as old as the idea of extra terrestrial life. I actually believe that it can exist life outside this blue planet of ours but i never saw any interaction that was told or photographed or recorded in video and so on that convinced me it is real. The book in other hand talks about stuff that i can believe and some ideas that i can relate with like the design and the engineering Mayas had a long ago and egyptians even earlier. What amazes me though is the belief people have in extra terrestrials these days. I talk to many friends that like some of you believe aliens are living among us for a long time and they are helping us to evolve. Others believe totally in abductions and contacts. Again nothing against that but in my opinion the world got to clever. There’s not much room for god and religion in many people’s minds. The only reality accepted is the material one. I think believing in Aliens and the idea they could be our spawners have to do with the necessity to create gods. Maybe mayas did those giant monuments to adore alien gods that didn’t ever appeared in this planet. Maybe they did meet people from other planets that visited us and for some reason are not here anymore. Maybe just like a lot of people i know today they were searching for explanations. It could be their version of our science fiction even so it’s the more believable theories of extra terrestrial live i found in all my reading. What is important in all this is that people are still looking for answers and all the technology available didn’t quiet their hunger. This is a big relief for me because that hunger is the wheel that pushes our species forward. We are still young after all.
