Hello List It's said that one shouldn't mistake a 'pattern' (or dynamic) for a 'purpose' (intended aim). Because a river or a whirlpool have dynamics/patterns but we don't suspect them of having ulterior motives. We humans are very good at seeing 'patterns' everywhere, and for most of our history that's served us well - recalling that it gets cold every twelve moons allowed some to prepare for winter, those who didn't see that pattern often didn't survive. Likewise for spotting signs of predators, clues to food etc. But we can only see patterns in terms of our own referents (obviously). So as small children watching adults do incomprehensible things - playing cards; talking politics at parties; worrying/arguing about money - we tended to 'make-up' various maybe fantastic scenarios to explain those patterns of behavior. [I can't recall my own fantasy explanations, or when they were replaced by reality - but I remember that they once existed] It seems, from all evidence, that Earth is being visited, and maybe for a long time past, and that the various vistors inter- act with humans, sometimes benignly, sometimes not. Our 'childish explanations' for those evidences vary from "Earth sees skirmishes in Galactic War" to "Occasionally aliens have coffee-meets on Earth" for the visits, and from "Humans abducted to make hybrid super-race" to "Some alien children are avid collectors" for the interactions. We should expect all those 'explanations' to be wildly wrong, as were our childhood fantasy scenarios. How far wrong, and in which direction is a matter for speculation. But if you ask me, because some will say those 'explanations' go from the sublime to the ridiculous, then I'll personally opine that only Nature is sublime, but that human (and perhaps alien) organized activities seem to tend to the ridiculous. Just a thought (maybe part-provoked by Jacques Vall=E9e), not prophecy. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
