I would like more UFO researchers to ponder the notion that perhaps, just perhaps, that the major intelligence behind the UFO phenomenon is a machine-based intelligence and not an organic species similar to our own. When discussing machine-based intelligences we naturally bring up all sorts of scenarios, beings that have uploaded their minds into machines, a pure machine-intelligence devoid of any uploading of organic minds, and advanced cyborgs, that is not the clunky, primitive cyborgs that most people would imagine, but say a being born part machine and perhaps indistinguishable from a normal human for example. Not only would an advanced A.I. give rise to newer, better, machines but it could also create newer, better, "humans". Of course any advanced A.I. may perceive organic beings as a resource to exploit or assimilate. An A.I. may desire various organic functions, for example. This topic also reminds me to inform readers who are interested that the Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome series has been released on YouTube. It is a prequel for the re-imagined series and takes place when the Cylons (A.I.) have just began experimenting with creating cyborgs and before they created the 'humanoid models', indistinguishable from human beings. You can watch it at the below link. This is the edited version. In February it will be shown as a 2 hour movie on Syfy.
