Would We Know If Aliens Were Here?
by Henry Paterson

Scott recently posted an article about Alien origin robots
visiting the Earth and you can read it here:


I posted a comment in response to that article, and while that
is little enough reason for an article of my own, when combined
with an item I recently found it becomes food for thought.

Many people who have reported “Close Encounters” have reported
mechanical seeming beings. presumed to be robots. That of course
presumes that alien life might not have found a way to become
hybridized with their machines. We are working on the same
technology ourselves in the form of bionic limbs, vision
enhancing brain implants, even as simple as bluetooth ear pieces
for our cell phones. We are becoming “Borg” by choice however
you look at it. And of course electronic intelligences solve the
issues of long term space travel not needing food, or decaying
biological bodies that require sleep, or ones that can sleep for
extended periods by simply placing themselves in a waiting state
just like your laptop, Ipad or cell phone does to conserve

And these alien visitors will of course arrive seeking out those
we put in power with a famous phrase “Take us to your leader.”
Or maybe not. These ideas are guided by a human perspective
influenced by mainstream entertainment. These ideas do not
project aliens as being anything more than us with slightly
better technology and limits their intelligence to little more
than our own quite possibly because we need them to be basically
us as that is less threatening. And without abandoning the idea
that aliens are basically like us we can still project far
better than this.
