Thanks for sharing this with us Kathy. I've banged this drum before, and here I go again. Why oh why do ET hypotheses surrounding these phenomena always miss the obvious? If speculators are looking for an analogue with existing human activity, then it needs to take account of endless repetition in the context of a species far more advanced than our own. Witkowski's suggestions look preposterously low tech for that context. All that's left is the idea that Earth has the status of a lab rat and we are seeing successive ET equivalents of high school students conducting the same or similar 'experiments' over and over. Would-be exopoliticians please take note! Let me hasten to add that I personally regard the speculative search for such an analogue to be an utter waste of time, except, perhaps, insofar as it might represent (as Borges remarked of metaphysics) an entertainingly exotic branch of fantastic literature.
