I’m going to write this post using the language favored by the writers of the Ancient Aliens series. I find it always entertaining and occasionally thought provoking. Their choice of language does more to destroy any confidence that I have in anything they say. Some of it may actually be true but I will be surprised if and when we discover that it is.
What if we’ve got the source of the ancient aliens all wrong? What if, instead of the stars, they come from alternate universes? The whole concept of alternate universes alleviates the question of how they overcome the immense distances between Earth and the stars.
Is it possible that the ancient aliens and the fairies are one and the same race? As Arthur C. Clark observed, sufficiently advanced technology will appear as magic to sufficiently primitive peoples. Are we sufficiently primitive compared to the ancient aliens?
Did these entities reveal themselves to the administration of Dwight Eisenhower only to be surpassed by J. Edgar Hoover and the head of the CIA? How did the fiasco at Roswell even happen? Why did the US government spend seventy years denying the existence of aliens? Could it be that there were no aliens, only highly evolved humans from the future?
The key to the genre is to ask intriguing questions and propose fantastic answers to them while claiming that they are the only possible answers to the questions. The aren’t. They aren’t even the most likely answers but you gloss over that fact.
Sweet dreams, don’t forget to tell the ones you love that you love them, and most important of all, be kind.
