A few weeks ago I was posting on Facebook, a few stories from some credible science websites about the scientific multidisciplinary approach to the reality of extraterrestrial life and the many theories that are now being openly discussed in the fields of astrobiology.

There was one user of my Facebook site that was obviously irate when he posted back that there are far more important things to talk about like the fact that our country is being taken on over by the liberal left and that caravan of course – all of this outer space alien stuff is a distraction.

I would beg to differ – I am beginning to believe that the political interjections into every conversation are growing tired and it is the real distraction for some of the most chilling drama that is happening in deep space.

What I am about to tell you sounds like it was ripped right out of the script from the War of the Worlds by Orson Wells.

While the scientific foundation for a living universe was established in the 16th century with the Copernican revolution, the nature of advanced civilizations remained the domain of philosophers and fiction writers for a few more centuries.

The latter populated the universe and our psyche with beings and worlds that were no more than idyllic or nightmarish versions of ourselves, our society, and our biosphere. By the end of the 19th century, the advent of new technologies opened a different chapter for scientists who held the belief that technology would soon reveal the incontrovertible reality of extraterrestrial intelligence.

Advances in planetary and space sciences, astrobiology, and life and cognitive sciences, combined with developments in communication theory, bioneural computing, machine learning, and big data analysis, create new opportunities to explore the probabilistic nature of alien life.

It also presents a problem, for 70 years governments have been able to keep a tight lid on any information about extraterrestrials, now it is having a difficult time explaining and covering up a very active and frightening alien scenario and they are now planning on ways to exploit it to their advantage.

The Kepler mission and ground-based observatories have revealed thousands of exoplanets in small sectors of our galaxy alone, thus providing powerful evidence that our solar system is not an exception but simply one out of countless others in the Universe.

However, in the past few months, the Hubble Space Telescope, Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Kepler spacecraft have all suffered technical issues that have led to the suspension of science operations.

NASA acted as though they were surprised that all of these glitches and shutdowns were going on and after a month of confusion, they decided to report that Kepler has died.

But while the media was reporting that NASA was befuddled over the loss of their important space hardware, a week ago they reported that they knew that Kepler was about to give up the ghost.

NASA claims that earlier this summer they knew that Kepler was running out of fuel. At the time, they put it in safe mode for a brief time to focus on getting the scientific data that Kepler had already collected safely back to Earth. They managed to turn it on and collect more data, but NASA claims they knew at the time that the spacecraft was nearing its end.

Now, NASA also came up with good public relations explanation for the Chandra X-ray telescope that switched off around the same time and why the Hubble Space Telescope has also gone into hibernation.

It was a gyroscope problem.

The Dawn probe also shut down for good and NASA said it also ran out of fuel and petered out.

The Mars Rover, Opportunity has also fallen silent without a blip or bleep all last month.

Now, the Mars INSIGHT probe is about to land on Mars and I worry if something is about to go wrong with this mission.

Now I am not predicting that something will go wrong, but it is not that easy to land something on Mars and lately, there have been some peculiar things happening that NASA again does not want to give a straight answer about.

Russia and the United States have always had trouble with their experiments to explore Mars. There have been many people who have stated for the record that someone or something wants us to stay away from Mars or is keeping us from exploring some of its mysteries.

One of the more mysterious cases in recent memory happened in 1989 when the first attempt to deliver landers to the surface of Phobos—one of Mars Moons was halted by a collision with what appeared to be a UFO. Moments before the collision, Phobos 2 sent to Earth pictures of a huge object in the shape of a long bus and it was moving quite fast. Below are some of the images associated with the mysterious failure.

Just before the Kepler telescope shut down there was a signal that was sent from a star that it was looking at. The waves from the signal were later converted into computerized sounds. The sound was an eerie reminder that there are very peculiar and chilling sounds that either come from past radio bursts or something else that sounds as if it is intelligent.

You may remember that we reported that there were some strange signals that were picked up by Cassini. Saturn and its moon, Enceladus were actually sending what sounded like communications.

Later there were also some interesting chimes that were heard coming from the surface of Jupiter.

Some were commenting that the chimes were actually lightning being detected in some of the various storms seen on Jupiter.

Paula Gilley, an amateur astronomer recently uploaded a video that shows mysterious beams of lasers coming out of Saturn’s giant ring. The discovery was made last September when Paula was gazing at the stars through her telescope.

Everything seemed normal for Gilley until her view reached Saturn. The amateur astronomer was literally shocked to see red lasers being shot out to the deep space from the planet’s ring.

This was happening days after the Sunspot Observatory shut down in New Mexico.

A few years ago, Dr. Norman Bergrun, a former NASA Engineer claimed that aliens are using the Saturn’s ring as a hiding spot. Bergrun also added that the spaceships near Saturn are using this ring to extract energy from the planet. He also urged authorities to look deep into this issue because we could be seeing an armada of spaceships gathering near Jupiter and Saturn.

Last week, the IB times of India reported that a mysterious green UFO was hovering very close to the surface of Jupiter.

Critics of both the Saturn sightings and the Jupiter sightings have claimed that the laser beams and the objects seen could be the result of an imaging sensor anomaly. NASA argued that a reflection of high energy particles hitting the sensors in sunlight might have caused this anomaly.

On October 25th, there was a reported UFO flap that happened in Brazil and another UFO flap that happened in South Korea.

The lights in the sky seemed static and then they moved up into the sky. Witnesses say that there were multiple UFO’s hovering around a bigger mothership type UFO.

Both incidents were explained away by authorities as reflections in the atmosphere from city lights.

This raises a few eyebrows and a few questions. Does circumstantial evidence point to a very chilling truth that NASA is well aware of an alien presence in our Solar System? Have they known about this presence since last summer when President Trump announced a serious attempt at establishing a Space Force?

The evidence is mounting that something unexplainable is happening in space and that there needs to be an open discussion and perhaps a meeting of the minds as it appears that too many coincidences are beginning to point to the possibility that scientists have dropped the ball and have missed the opportunity to declare that there is something watching us – or there is the possibility that NASA feels that it is wise to be tight-lipped about all that has transpired in the past year.

NBC News reported today that a pair of Harvard researchers are once again raising the possibility that Oumuamua, the strange cigar-shaped interstellar object that passed through our solar system last year is an alien spacecraft.

As they say in a paper to be published November 12 in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, the object “may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization.”

The researchers aren’t claiming outright that aliens sent Oumuamua. But after a careful mathematical analysis of the way the interstellar object sped up as it shot past the sun, they say Oumuamua could be a spacecraft pushed through space by light falling on its surface — or, as they put it in the paper, a “lightsail of artificial origin.”

Avi Loeb, chairman of Harvard’s astronomy department and a co-author of the paper, added that one possibility is that it was floating in interstellar space when our solar system ran into it, “like a ship bumping into a buoy on the surface of the ocean.”

Loeb and his collaborator, Shmuel Bialy, a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, acknowledge that the alien spacecraft scenario is an “exotic” one. And perhaps not surprisingly, other space scientists have strong doubts about it.

Need we remind everyone that the Oumuamua anomaly has been an object that has sparked more controversy than any other object seen in recent history?

First, it was argued that it was a possible alien spacecraft, and then it was written off as a comet and now it is being proposed that the object was a solar driven spacecraft from an ancient civilization once again.

Jill Tarter the scientist who inspired Jodie Foster’s character in the 1997 science fiction film, Contact, has been the darling of science magazines lately as she has stated that SETI the search for extraterrestrial intelligence is confident that they will provide technical signatures of alien life soon.

Some scientists, notably including noted physicist Dr. Stephen Hawking, have cautioned against attempting to make contact with aliens, over concerns they could be “vastly more powerful and may not see us as any more valuable than we see bacteria.

However it is becoming quite apparent that extraterrestrial intelligence has already made contact with us and while those scientists in the field of contact are looking for techno signatures – other scientists believe that they also have a reason to explore other worlds for biosignatures.

There are also other scientists that conclude that most of the encounters that many people of earth have had with so-called extraterrestrials were encounters with a special form of synthetic intelligence.

Susan Schneider of the University of Connecticut and the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton theorizes that the aliens that we claim are visiting this planet may be Artificial Intelligence that is billions of years old.

So far it seems that scientists have all but admitted that they have observed listened to and even have documented alien technology – now they want biological proof of aliens but both technological and biological aliens are a threat.

Biological aliens might well be hostile, but an extraterrestrial AI could pose an even greater risk. It may have goals that conflict with those of biological life, have at its disposal vastly superior intellectual abilities, and be far more durable than biological life.

Advocates of Active SETI point out that our radar and radio signals are already detectable, but these signals are fairly weak and quickly blend with natural galactic noise.

In the meantime, Fast Radio Bursts are now coming in all over the world and many of them when converted to sound, appear to sound like cosmic birds chirping at us from light years away.

Normally, we expect that if we encountered advanced alien intelligence, we would likely encounter creatures with very different biologies, but they would still have minds like ours in an important sense and while their DNA could be affected by their environment, it would not be too far of a leap to consider that biologically they would share some components of our DNA.

Then, of course, there is the new scientific interest in consciousness. Consciousness is the philosophical cornerstone of our moral systems, being key to our judgment of whether someone or something is a self or person rather than a mere artificial intelligence or synthetic intelligence.

But how can beings with vast intellectual differences and that are made of different components for life recognize consciousness in each other?

That is up to the intellectual minds and technocrats to consider as they have the daunting task of figuring out the alien agenda and avoiding the overlord effect where us puny humans fall to our knees and begged to be saved by our alien overlords.
