There was discussion of these papers at the time of the
conference at which they were presented... in January 2010.

Unfortunately, but as one might expect, there was essentially no
serious discussion of the overwhelming evidence that aliens are
visiting earth. Our egos tell us (The SETI and astronomical
communities) that we will hope to discover Life out there. But
of course they wouldn't have come here without calling fora
meeting with those two groups.

It is interesting that the 5th Annual Global Competitiveness
Forum to be held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Jan. 23-26 has the
courage to have a panel"Contact:Learning from Outer Space"
Featuring Dr. Jacques Vallee, Nick Pope, Dr. Michio Kaku, myself
and an Egyptian Scientist Dr. Zaghloul El Naggar", a member of
the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs.

A number of very impressive people will be among the 125
speakers. 800 attendees are expected each day who will pay 4000$
to attend.

What a contrast.
