You may or may not have noticed, but the year 2020 has been a kind of spectacular train-wreck made up of more intense scenarios than many of us would have thought could possibly unfold in such a short amount of time. On top of all the earthly madness (which you are likely well-aware of, or can quickly scrounge up with a few deft search engine inquiries if you have been safely nestled under a rock since January), there has been a surge in UFO sighting claims this year. According to NUFORC (National UFO Reporting Center) reports doubled from around 3k in 2018 to around 6k in 2019. To this point in 2020, already, there have been around 4.5k US-based reports submitted to NUFORC, numerous phone videos posted online, and the Pentagon confirmed the authenticity of leaked military videos of UFOs that have been circling the web for years. You may doubt the validity of many or all of these claims, and perhaps very rightly so, but the sheer volume of reports made over time seems like it earns at least an eyebrow raise, wouldn’t you say?
As upheaval continues to smash the asphalt of our society's infrastructures and humans continue to struggle against each other over virtually every topic imaginable, the thought of being whisked away to an exotic world far away from this one could be appetizing to some. Maybe a definite alien visit could even reset the general human perspective of our existence… although, knowing human nature, the visit would likely be suppressed or monetized somehow.
Even if every theory and claim was bogus and every video and testimony a hoax, it is still an interesting topic to consider. Do you think it’s more likely that an extraterrestrial being would benevolently try to assist humankind in moving forward in its evolution or see it as a race of unredeemable savages to be exterminated? The savior story or the invasion story?
On the other hand, they may already dwell among us! Cats, for example, are very likely alien spies. Reptilians may run our governments. The hyper-intelligent octopus certainly seems otherworldly and has documented ancestry making clear evolutionary updates since prehistory. Have you ever looked a Praying Mantis in the eyes? OR are we ourselves proof of life outside of this planet? Did humans immigrate here and plop down among all the strange, diverse creatures of this planet to dominate it? Have you ever thought about how distinctly different you are from every other creature on this planet? Why have humans been able to uniquely thrive here and take control of virtually everything else? Just things to consider… in case you needed something else to think about right now.
