James, Bob, List, EBK,

Advanced human civilizations could have developed space travel,
since there is some indication from ancient manuscripts, myths
and poems that India had vemanas, flying machines of some type,
that used heated mercury as a motor force. The heated mercury
created a vortex, which the flying machine was somehow able to
control. The creatures who seem to be visiting us are by-in-
large not humans, but short, big-headed, large eyed humanoids.

Tesla was able visualize the designs of his inventions. His mind
operated differently from that of an ordinary human so he didn't
need to follow the step by step process we're all familiar with.
Humanoids might also think in a different way from us and not
need all the foreplay you've mentioned above. Monotremes, for
example, have evolved a method of searching for prey by the use
of what is called Electroreception.

If monotremes were to evolve humanoid characteristics and still
retain this power, their thinking and conceptualizing might lead
to other ways of solving problems.

After a certain point of technological advance, like what is
envisioned for nanotechnology, avoiding detection would not be a
serious problem until the folks you were hiding from became
technologically sophisticated themselves. Maybe nanotechnology
is as far as we are, or they were, able to progress.

What if they prefer to live underground for protection and
comfort? If they possess nanotechnology, they could live
anywhere they wanted and we wouldn't notice unless they made
mistakes or developed engine trouble.

Maybe, or they don't build structures like we do and their needs
are different from ours. All average folk have seen are their
flying machines and a few humanoid stragglers.

There's plenty of evidence to convince me that an alien craft
and its occupants were recovered at Roswell so our government
has already tracked them down and knows exactly what UFO are and
where they came from but fears our reaction to this knowledge.
I've been in Hawaii for the last ten days so when I returned
yesterday, I was able to read this Updates thread all at once.
What a disappointment! Perhaps Margaret was correct: "You can't
tell the people!"
