Time tables are always problematic but the concept Dolan touched
on is correct. The evolution of machine intelligence is not
going to be a slow incline. It's going to be a radical leap into
areas undreamed of. The human brain will not be able to keep up.
In the future it will be impossible for human beings to compete
with machine intelligence. This means there will come a day when
human input will not be necessary, nor wanted, when it comes to
the evolution of machine intelligence, it's further development.
When that day comes human beings will become fully dependant
upon machine intelligences for survival.

I think as long as I have been active on this list I have
practically begged researchers to turn their attention to A.I.,
posthumans, advanced cyborgs, etc., and abandon this all- too-
human 'star trek' fantasy of organic species from elsewhere
attempting to live in harmony across the vastness of deep space.

These UFOs behave as if they are alive. I would suggest they
are, as in advanced A.I. The aliens' telepathy betrays them as
potential cyborgs, not the crude cyborgs which pop into the
human mind upon hearing the word cyborg, but beings that are
"born" cyborgs, grown in raised in artificial wombs. Perhaps
they may even be indistinguishable from normal humans. With the
abduction phenomenon I can't help but see advanced A.I.'s
perceiving human beings as a resource to be tapped.

So I'm in a position where I personally feel as if I've been
given a glimpse of the future which I have attempted to share
many times with people. Just my luck people would rather flock
to the likes of Greer and other who still promote this 'Star
Trek' nonsense. If I had a million dollars I would happily bet
that the main intelligence behind the UFO phenomenon is not an
organic species from elsewhere. It would have to be an extremely
advanced machine intelligence that has operated almost invisible
amongst us because few of us have 'eyes to see and ears to
hear'.

And mark my words, even those reading this reply will still not
comprehend what I'm speaking of. Once machines surpass human
intelligence the game is over. The gig is up. Humans are
obsolete. Humans would have no more power or control. Humans
would be dependant upon the machines for their own survival. So
it's not a case of an organic species from elsewhere simply
controlling these machines. The machines are controlling them,
if they even continue to exist at all.

Let's also not assume that the occupants reported aboard UFOs
are the creators or are in control. Such being could have easily
been created by such machine intelligences to act as drones.
They may be nothing more than extensions of this mahine
intelligence, with the A.I built into their bodies or at least
capable of interfacing with them in order to manipulate them,
perhaps like puppets.

I guess this stuff is so complex and confusing that it's simply
just easier to believe the Star Trek fantasy. I can't remember
who said it first, but some bright mind once said that the first
intelligent alien we will meet will be a machine intelligence
that is at the very least, equal to humans in intelligence.
