Ιπτάμενες ασημένιες σφαίρες έχουν παρατηρηθεί να κάνουν τουρισμό πετώντας πάνω από όλο τον πλανήτη

μόνο κατά δώθε δεν έχουν έρθει, δεν καταλαβαίνω γιατί, δε θέλουν να ζήσουν το μύθο τους στην Ελλάδα 2.0 τώρα που έρχεται καλοκαίρι;

αλλά μετά σκέφτομαι ότι έχουν αφήσει ήδη τους πρέσβεις τους στην ντόπια πολιτική σκηνή

We may be alone in the universe, or at least very rare. A new analysis of the Drake equation, which estimates the number of intelligent civilizations in the galaxy, suggests that the probability of finding another one is very low. This means we should cherish our planet and species as unique and precious.

Acabo de releer la colección de "Los dioses del universo" y me ha sorprendido de nuevo.
Editada entre 1978 y 1981 adaptaba al cómic las teorías de Von Däniken y así llegar al público juvenil de la época.
Las teorías que tanta polémica causaron en su día sirven de base para una genial historia de ciencia ficción que en muchos adolescentes de finales de los 70 y principios de los 80 sirvió para despertar nuestro pensamiento crítico frente a los dogmas de todo tipo.

For example, you do see genderless #robots and #aliens under glass; you also see dudes and cishet couples. Sometimes it’s aliens or animals or alien animals gazing at the women. Sometimes she’s clearly the subject of an experiment by mad scientists. Sometimes, she’s threatened by a #yellowmenace; the anti-Asian racism in mid-century #sciencefiction was quite intense. Occasionally, the bikini-clad babe is the one in control, with a man or creature under glass. 4/6

Retro SciFi Film of the Week…

The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

This is one of the better-made films that I've seen in a while. The acting in this film is world class starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt in the lead roles, with Anthony Mackie in the primary supporting role. John Slattery gives a good supporting performance as one the antagonists and character actor Terence Stamp delivers a stunning performance as the evil guy. The writing is very good with regard to the characters and dialogue and there's great chemistry between Damon and Blunt as the romantic couple. Overall it's very well made.

There are not a lot of technology devices shown in this film. In fact almost all of them are shown in this unauthorized trailer attached this toot. One of the issues that people might have with this film is that the technology that is demonstrated in the movie is done in a manner that makes it look like it's magic or supernatural because there aren't devices that are associated with it. (kind of hard to explain without spoilers)

In any case this film requires a little bit more suspension of disbelief than your typical scifi just because of the mode in which it's done.

I highly recommend this one.

It seems most likely the aliens were anthropologists studying a primitive culture of an un-evolved species. It is also possible they were only doing so while they had the chance before we went extinct.

If it's fake, I think it's a whopper of a grift, and I'll admit, it's suckered me.

My belief: It's true and happening. I haven't fully processed it. I don't know if it's a happy thing, but so far I do believe it's a thing.

But it's not a straight story.

👽 #ufo #ufos #uap #uaps #aliens #grusch

No-one has at all explained why supposed advanced beings from outer space can manage to travel across the galaxy to meet us and then keep "crashing" so often that we're assembling a complete collection of extraterrestrial debris.

We're definitely not getting a straight story.

👽 #ufo #ufos #uap #uaps #aliens #grusch

If it's all fake, then clearly something has gone *spectacularly* badly wrong inside US agencies. They're currently fighting over themselves, contradicting each other about what they do and don't know and it's not a healthy thing. There will be big investigations either way.

There's something EXTREMELY deliberate about the choice of media outlet they're talking to. All non-mainstream, some obscure foreign: The Debrief, NewsNation, Le Parisien, But conspicuously dead silent so far: WaPo, NYT, MSNBC, BBC... Why!?!?

👽 #ufo #ufos #uap #uaps #aliens #grusch

3 days ago

If it's real, why now? Some reasons:

(A) too difficult or dangerous to contain it any longer, and better a smooth release than big ugly leak

(B) acceptance that it's plain immoral to keep the truth of our nature a secret

(C) fear that China/Russia/baddies have gained ground at reverse engineering, and with fewer ethical barriers

(D) disclosure allows far huger teams for reverse engineering potential life-saving and world-changing tech

(E) imminent mass contact scenario we need to be prepared for

👽 #ufo #ufos #uap #uaps #aliens #grusch

3 days ago

There's a certain type of mind that lashes out "conspiracy" at everything it doesn't understand. I always thought when disclosure happened, some of these would pivot from "government is hiding aliens" to "government is faking aliens".

But I never expected just ignorant silence.

If (if) this is real, of course naturally they're slow-rolling it to control the narrative smoothly, to let people process, and minimize upset and alarm. But they might be playing it a bit *too* slow, because most people don't even seem to be noticing it!

We think photographs this weekend, of the supposed 1933 vehicle shaped as a 'bell' or 'beehive' or 'acorn'. The theory is because it landed on Italian soil, and because of its age, US military would be happier to declassify it. We won't see craft caught in the US.

It's plain to me that David Grusch is not a random nut or your standard grifter.

What's happening this week has many high-level people and *very* serious weight behind it.

So, two possibilities:

(A) This event is for real. The grand disclosure is finally happening and we are living thru it.

(B) Grusch is knowingly or unknowingly part of a massive orchestrated government conspiracy to make people *think* there are aliens. For what purpose they'd go to all this effort, I really hate to imagine.

What are your thoughts on the latest claims that crafts of "non-human" origin have been recovered? 👽

Personally, I find it extensively fascinating, whether it's true or not, that they aren't immediately saying it's "aliens" or "extraterrestrials." Instread, they're using terms like "exotic" or "non-human intelligence." The possibility that it could be something more "exotic" than aliens just blows my mind lol. Of course, I'm still skeptical of the current claims and likely will be until we see some concrete proof either way.

#ScienceFiction fans: why on Earth (and beyond) should #aliens invade or destroy us?

There's no scarcity in the universe (enough energy and water for gazillions of species, along with enough materials to build all kinds of large technostructures), no need to have the space equivalent of a "war for oil".

I can see no "economic" reason for starting and winning a large-scale interstellar war. Also given the vast scales of time and space, most species would probably kill themselves anyway.

I'm curious about the connections between shadow work and UFOlogy. At first glance, it may seem like these two practices are entirely separate from one another.

But if "aliens" (or "extraterrestrials;" or "ultraterrestrials;" or even "faeries," if you're feeling fancy) are often perceived and understood as "The Other," then it would follow that we'd assign traits and attributes to them that *we* possess but ultimately reject or repress. The same applies to other beings that are given "Other"-status, both human and otherwise.

I wonder how different the fields of UFOlogy, occultism, and High Strangeness would look if shadow work was considered an integral part of the practice. And I wonder how that would affect the common lore, tropes, and archetypes associated with these Phenomena.

Imagining aliens with a faster subjective experience of time looking at us and thinking we're some sort of slow geological process of a strange hydrocarbon filled planet.

Perhaps this is a solution to the Fermi paradox: we're just part of a rare group of living things that experiences time either too slow or too fast.

Less concerned with intergalactic colonising/warring aggressors, the nature of the contact in all these stories is spiritual or quasi-religious with profound environmental and evolutionary concerns.

#TheBond: First Contact

The following weeks brought inflation of knowledge. The probes on the surface of Rana 3 worked perfectly. The translator AI learned the new languages within a week. In the same week, the crew gathered geographical and sociological data. After that, the working teams augmented their observations with statements from the aliens. ...

Disclaimed: None of it is real. It’s just a movie, made mostly with AI, which took care of writing the script, creating the concept art, generating all the voices, and participating in some creative decisions. The AI-generated voices used in this film do not reflect the opinions and thoughts of their original owners. This short film was created as a demonstration to showcase the potential of AI in filmmaking.

#TheBond: Arrival

Arriving in the Rana system was less spectacular than Martin thought. The blackness of the space there followed the blackness between the systems. The only difference was a star that shone a bit brighter than usual. They still had two days until they were supposed to reach the orbit. ...

Y'all can boost this one, even if it feels a bit late to the party now.

He would most likely be the Armstrong of his era, the person who was supposed to make first contact with an alien. ...
