ROBOTECH REALITY

ROBOTECH REALITY

There has always been the debate in fringe circles as to whether or not aliens or alien technology would help the earth. If we were to stumble upon some sort of high tech from aliens would it help us or hurt us. If we have already stumbled upon this technology we may be already seeing that the technology has been modified into some technological terror, highly advanced and ready to create mass death.

Biologists who care to speculate about aliens will tell us that the beings will most definitely not come here bearing gifts or the secrets of the Universe, they’ll more likely come bearing the outer space equivalent of intergalactic robo-tech boxcars and methods to haul everyone into camps and slaughterhouses. .
Alien war scenarios and simulations have been conducted by governments and are reality based. The war games that have been conducted by governments that include alien scenarios often wind up demonstrating how aliens have the upper hand. In all war game scenarios we lose.
Their technologies are far more superior and we are forced to try and defeat them using asymmetrical warfare.
If you look at the Earth’s history every time a low-tech culture met a high-tech culture the low-tech culture loses great numbers of people and property in the process. If we were to venture a guess on how the world would react to discovering an alien technology they would focus all of their resources and science in trying to figure out how to use the technology to either be a source for war or a source for growth and evolutionary benefit.
The fictional Manga anime series ROBOTECH demonstrates various military and earthly responses to several alien races and technologies beginning with an alien technology crashing to earth on Macross Island. The Robotech Wars span more than three decades i9n the series and each time they are more complex in scope.
However we need to look at the first event at Macross to understand what would happen with the revelation of Alien tech in the real world. The arrival of the alien space ship, interrupts a Global world war, while the war is not specified it seems it is world war III.
The alien ship is heavily damaged and there is no fanfare for the arrival because the entire crew is killed. The ships arrival creates a reason for a cease fire. The World war stops and then comes a New World Order in the form of United Earth Government. The UEG decides that it is time to restore the alien Battle ship. It is eventually used as a primary source of power and is restored for its flight again in space. Humanity also constructs a number of other ships and defensive systems derived in part from what it calls ROBOTECH technology. After all of this – the aliens who originally create the technology return to claim it back and decide to declare an all out war on the earth. The result is a 30 year war and a interesting tale of our relationship with alien races and how we are to survive the ROBOTECH war.
The idea of discovering alien tech and our eventual relationship with aliens, clones, and hive mind creatures puts whole worlds and races and the very fabric of the universe in jeopardy.
We cannot conclude that the mere disclosure of an alien race or the discovery of an alien technology wills guarantee that we will be the victors or benefit from these discoveries.
Many science fiction writers have demonstrated that we are naive or even arrogant in thinking that any alien race wants to befriend us. Any high tech race most certainly would want more than anything to swallow up our resources and leave the planet barren. It is also quite probable that alien intrusion of any kind or mass invasions planned and developed by alien forces would first be technologically based with possible drones and military fortresses similar to what crashed in ROBOTECH stories. It is certain that the aliens if they have bodies of flesh and blood would avoid any human to human contact—however there are claims that say otherwise.
However it still not known if any of the stories of abduction and or contact are alien at all but dimensional and spiritual. These are the contacts that prompt humans on earth to seek government disclosure about alien contact and the ownership of technologies that could put us into the same situation as the ROBOTECH series.
A 30 year war with aliens? How could we survive and what could we do to defeat them? Perhaps we can look back in history at some of the American Indian tribes that never surrendered or the Afghanis and how they decisively defeated the of the Soviet Empire in the 1980s and continue to keep the American forces from defeating them.
One day we will not be a superpower and we will see that someone or something may have a higher or advanced technology that we will have to fight against using rudimentary materials.
The scenario of coping with an alien technology and a thirty year war with aliens is successfully dramatized, with the ROBOTECH series. It shows us that alien technologies are going to be awesome an incomprehensible to the human mind. Even then with all of the explosions, high tech and interesting characters, we may not even be able to comprehend the actual arrival of aliens in our back yard. We believe we can handle the reality, because our science fiction has been so entertaining. Truth is our lives will change if they are not snuffed out by alien overseers who grow tired of our infantile and animal behaviors.
