Uh, is that your estimate of the situation, or just an idea we
can kick around?

I'd like some solid proof that some intelligent alien probes
have arrived at Earth; a much more conservative conjecture.
There could be different types for different purposes, yes.

Unless you attribute supernatural or magical powers to them,
they are bound by the laws of physics. What's missing here is we
don't know all the rules, and hence the limitations that nature
does and must impose.

For example: In theory, given enough (useful) energy, one could
make anything out of anything -but- Nobody can make something
out of nothing .. not unless you want to drag in the gods etc.

Agreed. Probably stuff we wouldn't recognize if we looked right
at it too, but not just for a hobby. I would expect anything
placed on or about the Earth to have some purpose.

I see no need for conflict. What's needed are facts.
