UFOs might be Robotic Interplanetary Probes from Other Star Systems

About two years ago, I wrote a short series about my thoughts on the ‘ancient astronaut’ theory. To make a long story short, the vast majority of stuff attributed to visits by ancient astronauts is much easier to explain without such intervention. Around that time, I also wrote a a post about the continued popularity of “Ancient Aliens” type TV shows. Having said that, I am skeptical about the vast majority of UFO sightings, the key words being ‘vast majority’. See.. the thing is.. over the many years I have been an amateur astronomer, I have seen (on only a couple of occasions) objects in the sky which moved around in a manner that was incompatible with currently feasible propulsion technologies. In other words, they were UFOs by definition.

Over the past couple of years, many of you might have also heard about more than one video of UFOs shot from navy aircraft (link 1, link 2 , link 3). Without going into too much detail, over thee years there have been numerous instances of navy pilots witnessing objects which display speed and maneuverability characteristics that exceeds what any known aircraft and human pilots are capable of performing or tolerating. Moreover, these unidentified flying objects are clearly aware of the presence of human piloted aircraft in their vicinity. While it would be tempting to believe that these UFOs are proof of some secret government program, the objects in question exhibit speed, acceleration and maneuverability characteristics which preclude human operators and propulsion dependent on currently feasible technologies, which is a fancy way of saying they are unlikely to be made by humans. So what are they doing flying about in our atmosphere?

Well.. here is my theory. Imagine that you are a species which has reached the technological level to travel between stars. Now ask yourself a simple question- what would be the most optimal way to explore stellar systems within your reach? Would you visit each and every system that you could travel to in person OR would you send “unmanned” probes that were essentially autonomous to survey them- especially the less important ones. My point is that it is far more discreet and less resource intensive to use “unmanned” probes for surveying and keeping tabs on planets in most star systems. Visiting in person makes sense only if you are interacting with another species that is at a comparable level of technological development. Also anybody who can travel between stars can almost certainly pack a lot of intelligence within such probes.

The UFOs we see in our atmosphere are, therefore. most likely ‘daughter’ probes meant for close-up exploration of planets. They are likely carried near their destination by larger ‘mother’ probes which travel between star systems. This might explain the less frequent sightings of larger UFOs releasing and then collecting smaller UFOs that fly much closer to the surface. Of course, there is a chance that all of this is just part of a big hoax or coverup. However, everything we know about UFOs thus far, suggests that a very small percentage of them are real and not controlled and manufactured by humans. Think of them as extremely advanced and capable equivalents of the unnamed probes we ourselves use to explore planets within the solar system.

    Advocates Diaboli, or as you are known in da mutherland, Agent 364-211.12.Red-Sparrow,

    Thank you for your hard work but our cover has been blown. MikeCA was “kidnapped” via operation alien spacekraft. Most consider the anal probing torture, but he considered it pleasure. He was able to endure setting #11. And then the machine broke. He cried, “Daddy, please, please don’t stop.” He took the anal probing device and started sucking on it so when I say or cover was blown, I mean that almost literally.

    You no longer need to write stories to create cover-up for our missions. And, BTW, before you come back to da mutherland, please eliminate Agent 39- Sparrow, commonly known as Stoner With A Boner. He no longer suits our needs and quite frankly has become a liability. Don’t make it look like a drug overdose as that would be too predictable. Instead, maybe a stabbing with some pink swastikas sprayed on his trailer. Then they will think it was those white nationalists he enjoys tormenting so much.

    We are expecting a windfall as Agent 41.2.-11.z26.Orange Sparrow has perpetuated a lawsuit against our Arch Nemesis Warhawk Hillary. So instead of the 3.856million rubles you were promised, you shall receive the bonus of 6.521million rubles. You shall also receive a bottle of vodka as your wishes and three crying, scared and tied up Ukranian women as you didn’t like the Polish ones last time.

    Your BFF 4 Ever,

    “Bad” Vlad

    The “X-Files” episode, “War Of The Coprophages” (Season 3, Ep.12 ) addressed this possibility in it’s original airing on Jan. 5, 1996, in a discussion between Mulder and wheelchair-bound scientist Dr. Ivanov.

    Ya.. I remember that episode now.

    believe in a very different perspective.
    Look at this. It’s inner rather than outer perspective.

    On a sidenote. I follow your blog sporadically from time to time. I recently broke up with my “girlfriend” of 2 years. I might be headed in your direction. Although, I me want family and kids. I am based out of India but travel to US on business trips. It would be interesting to meet yousometime. I had messaged you on your Twitter pseudonym but have since deactivated it.

    What are your thought on coronavirus? My top level source says it’s an accidentally escaped bioweapon from the Wuhan bioweapon reasearch center. Mix of two viruses: flu as the transmission mechanism, plus a new virus which causes brain to shut down breathing, hence these reports of people suddenly dropping dead.

    Remember the SARS scare from 2003? Same thing caused by a very similar virus..
