Do we really want to know what’s out there?

“New ‘life in space’ hope…” was the headline of a newspaper item the other day — about an astronomical survey which suggests that billions of habitable planets exist in our galaxy alone.
As I’ve suggested before, hope is not what we should be feeling about this prospect. Proof that there is even one extraterrestrial intelligence out there would be something to fear.
Many others have made similar arguments. Even in the scientific journal Nature there was an editorial six years ago which included the lines:
It is not obvious that all extraterrestrial civilizations will be benign — or that contact with even a benign one would not have serious repercussions for people here on Earth.
In Hollywood, too, the ET-themes seem to have become a lot darker in the past couple decades (e.g., Species, War of the Worlds, Transformers).

To me, the possibility of malign aliens should be the least of our worries. Any “bad” ET neighbor capable of detecting us and traveling here would have wiped us out long ago — or anyway would have done whatever it wanted, regardless of what we did or thought.
And it seems more likely that advanced aliens would be “good” ones. Our own experience here on Earth is that the more socially and technically advanced (and wealthy) societies tend to be more cooperative and benign — I think of Canadians, Norwegians, Swiss. In general, Western culture, as it has matured, has become much more peaceful and respectful of other, less advanced cultures. Contrast, say, America’s civilize-the-savages attitude of the Philippine war era a century ago with our present solicitude for remote Amazonian tribes. Or compare Vikings of 1000 AD to modern Swedes.
And if by ill chance aliens did come and turn us to ashes, arguably they’d be performing an act of mercy. An Earth society that had to confront, and then live with, the existence of a vastly superior alien species, would be in serious trouble.
There would be a basic demoralizing effect from the knowledge that everything we do and think is inferior and primitive – laughably so, like ants vs. humans.
But I suspect that the worst shock of all, from a visiting ET, would be an explanation of the universe for which we are totally unprepared.
As Nietzsche warned more than a century ago, we cannot psychologically keep up even with the implications of our own humble science. Whether we profess atheism or tome-thumping monotheism, we still tend to think of our lives and our civilizations as having some kind of meaning in the grand scheme of things. We pay lip service to the ETI possibility, but really we see ourselves as a lone, special species on its way to ruling the heavens, or destined for some kind of union with the entity who already rules. Other, smarter creatures come into this picture only as helpers (e.g., angels) of the highest beings, not as representatives of intermediate cultures that once were like ours.
Yet for some time quantum mechanics and cosmology have been indicating that the universe — in every direction, dimension and sub-universe — is a cold infinitude; and in this unfathomable context our existence effectively has no meaning or purpose. The ultimate secret is that there is no secret. The existential relativism of the currently-popular “Many Worlds Interpretation” (MWI) of quantum theory is so extreme, and so different from our intuitive view of things, that if we took it seriously, we’d be seriously messed up. Currently we can justify ignoring MWI’s implications in our general thinking because we’re unable to prove or disprove it. But an encounter with vastly smarter aliens would force us to confront and accept their model of reality — and if it is anything like MWI, it will be one in which the broad “meaning” and “purpose” we crave is entirely absent.
So maybe we should be grateful, for now, that SETI’s antennas deliver only the static of stars, and UFOs flit and swoop just out of science’s reach. If there are real aliens out there, their elusiveness may be the clearest indication that they mean us no harm.

A Saucer at Sedona

Some 120 miles north of Phoenix, Arizona, in the northern Verde Valley, is Sedona, a small, tranquil city of barely 10,000 people that has become legendary in New Age circles for its enigmatic energies, vortexes, Native American legends of supernatural entities roaming the surrounding countryside, and much more of a paranormal and strange nature. Sedona is also home to the famous Red Rocks, large and stunning formations of sandstone that glow an eerie and captivating red and orange when the sun both rises and sets, and which add even further to Sedona’s reputation as a place of deep mystery and wonder.
And then there are Sedona’s UFOs…
One incident that really stands out in the weird stakes occurred back in the summer of 1947, the details of which can be found in a formerly classified FBI file, now made available via the terms of the Freedom of Information Act.
According to the document of August 17, 1947 – titled Flying Disk, Sedona, Arizona – the witness (whose name has been excised from the file by FBI censors) was a former Second World War pilot who, after the hostilities came to an end in 1945, spent the next eighteen months working as a crop-duster in West Texas, before moving to Sedona, and securing employment in nearby Prescott.

It was while driving home late one weekday night – the man told the local sheriff’s office, who, in turn, contacted both the military and the FBI – that he caught sight of a large ball of blue light hanging low in the sky over one of the canyons of Sedona.
Naturally curious, the man brought his car to a halt at the side of the road, and watched, fascinated, as the glowing ball began to almost rhythmically sway, as if prodded or pushed by a gentle gust of wind. Fascination soon gave way to overpowering fear, however, when the ball quickly moved in his direction, possibly because, the man admitted to both an FBI special-agent from Phoenix and a representative of the Air Force, he had left his car’s headlights on and its engine running to ensure no-one slammed into the vehicle on the dark and lonely road.
“Mr. [Deleted] believes the lights of his vehicle attracted the ‘Flying Disc’ to his whereabouts,” recorded the FBI, in its three-page report on the affair. Within seconds, the strange object was directly over the car, at a height of no more than about fifty feet. It was at this point that the engine suddenly died, the headlights were extinguished – both by forces unknown – and the man found himself bathed in a light blue glow that, the FBI noted, “caused [the witness] to develop tingling in his fingers and lips.”

Likening the craft to a large “spinning-top,” the man told the authorities that as he gazed upwards, utterly awestruck, he suddenly developed the distinct thought that the craft was “flown by men from space who are watching us now there is an atom bomb,” and added to the interviewing agents that he believed “the space men are here to halt all future wars.”
Then, in an instant, the UFO was gone: it shot vertically in the sky to a height that the man – as an experienced pilot in the war and as a crop-duster – estimated to be around 600 or 700 feet, at which point “Mr. [Deleted] believes the light was turned off and [the] disk traveled in darkness in an unknown direction.”
This particular report is highly illuminating as countless people, all across the world, since the late 1940s, have claimed face to face contact with eerily human-like aliens from far-off planets who have expressed concerns about our growing atomic arsenals – just as the witness in this Sedona-based case of 1947 had suggested . The aliens in question are usually seen dressed in tight-fitting, one-piece-outfits, while sporting heads of lush, long and flowing blond hair.
Not only that: our cosmic visitors assure those of us who they deem worthy of contact that they are deeply concerned by our warlike ways. They wish us to disarm our nuclear arsenals, live in peace and harmony with one another, and elevate ourselves to whole new spiritual levels. The aliens in question have become known as the Space-Brothers; while those whose lives have been touched and forever changed by their encounters with such alleged extra-terrestrial entities are an elite body of people known as the Contactees.
If the testimony of the witnesses can be considered valid, then in the early years of contact the aliens took a decidedly alternative approach to their liaisons with the people of Earth; something which may explain why the military had such a hard time proving the reality of the UFO phenomenon.
Allegedly preferring face-to-face encounters with everyday members of society, the Space-Brothers arranged their clandestine meetings at such out-of-the-way locations as isolated hills, lonely mountains, and desert canyons, perhaps not at all unlike the one over which the UFO at Sedona in August 1947 was reportedly first seen hovering…

One Millionth Space Station Photo

ISS030-E-126655 (7 March, 2012) --- This photograph, taken by one of the Expedition 30 crew members aboard the International Space Station from approximately 240 miles above the southeastern Tasman Sea, is believed to be the one millionth still image recorded by space station crews. The view, from over a point centered at 46.56 degrees south latitude and 164.33 degrees east longitude, focuses on an area just west of the south end of South Island, New Zealand and was taken about 3:19 a.m. New Zealand time, March 7, 2012. Illumination and the relative motion of features in the overall series of photos suggest that the view is towards the south to southeast with the approaching dawn to the left and a strong band of Aurora Australis, from left to right. A Russian Soyuz and a Russian Progress vehicle are seen center and right in the foreground, respectively.

Airline Passenger Films Super Sonic UFO above Birmingham, Alabama – Videos


Second super sonic UFO flyby in 8 days, UFOs caught on video in the skies above Dallas

[Photo-Image: UFO filmed from plane above Birmingham, March 29, 2012]
Another ‘super sonic speed’ UFO was captured on video by a jet airliner passenger; the second too-fast-to-see unless the footage is slow motion UFO caught on film by an airline passenger in an 8 day span. On March 29, 2012, an airline passenger caught on film an “extremely fast moving object” above Birmingham, Alabama. On March 21st similar unidentified flying objects were filmed from a plane in the skies above Dallas. Both videos reminiscent of the UFO caught on video at Chile’s El Bosque Air Force Base during an airshow, November 5, 2010. A UFO whose speed was so fast no one saw the object until someone noticed something unusual in the footage; the UFO’s antics revealed in slow motion. Footage of the UFO was presented at the 21st 2012 International UFO Congress in Fountain Hills, Arizona.
UFO filmed from Plane – Birmingham 03-29-2012

Video Info:
First of all, thanks to Conny Renner and her Family for sharing this video. Another great UFO footage caught from plane while approaching to Birmingham, AL on March 29, 2012.
You have to look very carefully to see two extremely fast objects flying from left to right over Downtown (0:27 – 0:29). This looks similar to the “Dallas UFOs” on March, 21 2012 ( and another UFO three years ago (
First you can see the video in full length we received, then you see the video in slow motion, closed up and enhanced.
