15:39 What apart from a black hole could you NOT destroy with a warp bubble? It sounds like you could rip through a planet or star and leave the doughnut hole you ripped out on your windshield till you stopped and fired your "annihilate everything in front of me" beam. If caution should be proportionate to potential harm, what type of caution is merited when the harm is the potential to destroy planets or even solar systems? Shouldn't the question be less of *if* we can develop warp technology, but do we even want it?

Comets accelerate from outgassing by Mass Transfer. They're not rockets, they're basically heavier when the sun pulls them in than they are on the way out. So, the Sun's gravity doesn't pull them as hard on the way out.

On Mars, we're the Aliens. That's basically the only exception: When Humans (Or let's say European colonists) are the Aliens. If we find microbes on Mars, the correct term is Natives. I suppose in the case of a rock being knocked off of Phobos, landing in Greenland, and then getting cracked open by Scientists thousands of years later. That rock was Their world, until Scientists cracked it open on our world, and put them in a Petri Dish. At that point, technically they would be "Aliens" in the petri dish.

I tend to think if its found in our solar system... is it really Alien? Drake odds change if we expect alien labels on our doorstep? Theia impact could spray a crapload.. an early life form on earth ... no trace left here cause Theia was x 100000 a Chicxulub extinction event. anyway... All my Alien research is from people with tiger blood.

Ok I'm probably going to embarrass myself here - I had some thoughts on the Proxima Centauri signal. Suppose an alien technology could beam one-half of a set of entangled photons as the type of signal we received from Proxima Centauri. Their technology then stores the other half of the entangled photon pairs in some sort of storage loop (these aliens are pretty smart). When the original beam is detected by some sort of consciousness like ours the wave functions of the photon pairs collapse and the aliens detect this in their stored photons (that's probably the tricky bit). But if it worked it would mean that they would be able to detect consciousness without a round trip - so they are probably already on their way.

I do believe we have seen possible evidence of alien life in our distant past. I would suggest that the ancient gods were very possibly the remnants of a race that left its home world because its sun somehow destabilized. The fleet COULD be an echo of the fleet that would have landed over 10,000 possibly 100 million years ago. Why not look for it as a possibility? It could still be any number of things we don't know that could cause this kind of signal. Why not look at the odd escalation in the history of instances (WOW, 2019?) that you shared. I would strongly suggest that the observer plays an active role finding that this "cat" ain't dead. I believe that as people become aware of the concept of aliens in a more cohesive manner, it will happen. My suggestion for this is that because time is somehow intricately linked with space and our observations make it happen as is most cohesively viewed. There are many things science can't quite explain in the same way that Einstein's theory of relativity helps us accomplish a lot even though Einstein's theory can't be fully understood by our current understanding of science. I think we need to find a way to understand these blind spots. Comment if you follow what might seem like a line of garbage on the surface. I dare you to look deeper and moderate Occam's razor. Everything is detrimental in excess.

So, after having listened to Avi Loeb, and having listened to this video, I'd like to recap both. This video states: "Why not aliens if there is no accepted natural explanation? Well, because the answer is simple. Because there are more things in heaven and earth, than are dreamed of in your philosophy". That's a poetic line. But it's not even close to being an "answer". Then it continues: "And lo and behold, since the publication of our video, a far more reasonable explanation has been proposed. I'm actually going to direct you to Anton Petrov's excellent channel for a really clear, in-depth analysis. But in short, Oumuamua is very well explained as a shard of a extra-solar ice world similar to Pluto. Ejected into interstellar space by an impact. And this also explains the acceleration due to outgassing of Nitrogen ice." Here is Professor Avi Loeb of Harvard University, on March 23 2021, in an interview - ruvid.net/video/video-8fEHDQuLqgA.html "Even this week there were two papers published, trying to explain it from a natural origin. I should say that all of the suggestions on the table, there are four of them that associate Oumuamua with a natural origin, all four of them contemplate something that we have never seen before. So the latest one, just to give you an example, talks about a nitrogen iceberg. And we can talk about it later, why that is very unlikely. There was another one that said maybe it's a hydrogen iceberg. And then because hydrogen is transparent, when it evaporates we can't see the cometary tail. The problem with that is hydrogen can be evaporated very quickly, and so, such an iceberg will not survive the journey. There was another suggestion maybe it's a cloud of dust particles. Very loosely bound, sort of like a dust bunny that we find at home, except the size of a football field. And the problem with that is, as it gets close to the Sun it would be heated by hundreds of degrees and it wouldn't maintain it's integrity - it's material strength is not high enough. There was another suggestion, maybe it's a fragment or piece of another object that was broken when it passed close to a star. The problem with that is such events are very rare, but also usually you get a piece that is cigar shaped rather than pancake shaped, the way Oumuamua looked. And so, all of these proposals have major flaws. And given the fact all of them contemplate something that we have never seen before, it makes sense in my opinion to consider an artificial origin." Later he adds... "At the moment, I should say that all the natural origin interpretations look less likely to me, compared to the artificial origin. Take for example, the most recent suggestion. That it's made of nitrogen, pure nitrogen. The problem with that is nitrogen is produced together with carbon in the interiors of stars. You never get just pure nitrogen, you get a mix of nitrogen and carbon in almost every object that we see. And carbon could not have existed, could not have evaporated from Oumuamua based on the observations by the Spitzer space telescope. There are very tight limits on all carbon-based molecules, and you couldn't have evaporation of nitrogen without carbon. The other thing is, we've never seen a nitrogen iceberg. We've looked at numerous... you know, about a billion objects bigger than the size of Manhattan Island in the so-called Oort Cloud of the solar system. And all the objects we have seen from there appear to be rocks, the kind of object that we expect - the building blocks of the planets that we see. None of them was pure nitrogen. So, to argue that the first object, which should be by the way most common, was made of nitrogen, to me is very strange. Because it's a rare oddity, just something we've never seen before. Why would the first (extrasolar) object look like nothing we've seen before in the solar system, if all stars resemble the solar system?"

You could apply the same "always rule out aliens" argument to things we know match alien life, eg Houston: Houston may at first glance appear to exhibit charismatics of life, but this is easily explained by natural processes. All other "city" structures on that planet are similar, and do not occur on neighbouring bodies, so this is likely to be a localised natural phenomena. During attempts at communication, there was no response to our heat rays, and no artifacts or biological processes were found upon closer examination. Long-distance observations of the detail of the structures showed delicate regular mineral structures, probably crystalline. Unfortunately these all melted when we approached, so a detailed study is not possible. Early reports of the "cities" glowing on the night side of the planet were not corroborated during later scans.

It isn't. It's that simple. It is NOT, it will never be aliens. We know of ONE and only ONE planet with life - ours. This planet, in it's 4+ billion year history has gone through a LOT, including being smashed into by another planet, being completely frozen over for 300,000,000 years. At one point there was no oxygen, then there was too much oxygen that wiped out almost all life. In fact, there have been a number of extinction events that has nearly wiped all life off of this planet. It is very likely that, in order for life to occur and endure, a planet must go through every thing this planet has gone through. So it is very probably that there is no other life out there. Get used to the idea.

the fact that our planet has been through so many catastrophes and still has life is evidence that life is ludicrously resilient, the direct opposite of your point. our planet could be thrown out of our solar system and life would still persist around hotspots in the deep ocean beneath miles of ice. life seems to need, essentially, two things to persist, to start and liquid water, We do not know exactly how life got started and therefore do not know how likely or unlikely it is, and water is very common in some form or another which means basically the only thing we can say about how common life is is that it's somewhere between "Only exists here" and "all over the place". "It will never be aliens" is exactly as dumb as "It is definitely aliens"

Thomas Wright
Thomas Wright 15 days ago
@Shiyanj I'd also ask the question: if these objects really are aliens, then what the heck are they doing? There are really only two credible reasons that an extraterrestrial intelligence would bother to come here would be either curiosity or survival. If survival, they wouldn't be playing games with us, but would just wipe us out and/or take our resources. If curiosity, then what do they hope to accomplish by basically spinning doughnuts in our sky? If they're only trying to observe us, then why is their stealth technology so terrible? Are you going to tell me that an alien race will travel billions of billions of miles across the cosmos, committing those kinds of resources necessary, taking whatever risks, and spending however long it takes (keep in mind, it takes decades or even centuries for light to reach us from most of the stars we can see), and yet they don't have technology sufficient to keep themselves hidden from us? And if they're not here to study us, then why don't they just land and say hello? Surely, any advanced technology they have to prevent us from annihilating them as soon as they show up. Unless the aliens are just drunk teenagers on a Saturday night with nothing better to do than screw with the humans. But then I don't think their parents would let them commit the kinds of resources such an undertaking would require. Bottom line: there are just things that don't make sense if some sort of alien intelligence is behind these phenomena.
Thomas Wright

@Shiyanj I don't know what happened to my previous reply, but as I said, I've already looked into these "phenomena," and there's nothing about any of them that convinces me that they're anything that can't be explained without appeal to aliens. You're just frustrated because intelligent people look at these things and aren't immediately convinced to give their hearts to Lord Xenu. And the fact you have to resort to language like "small minded" seems to show that you know your case is shaky.

@Shiyanj You haven't presented me with any credible evidence, just a bunch of blurry videos. And no, it's not a scary idea; it's just that you haven't proven anything, and yet people like you keep pretending that you've proven things which you haven't. Because your own ideas are driven by emotion and sensationalism, you assume that the only reason that someone would reject them is out of emotions; it never occurs to you that your presentation isn't credible, or that your evidence doesn't really lead to the conclusions you push. You don't understand how science works: science works by observation and testing. You give us nothing to test, and expect us to jump on the same emotion-driven sensationalism that you buy into. Basically, you're an evangelist who doesn't understand why people haven't made Xenu their personal lord and savior yet. Come back when you have some actual SCIENCE, not this drivel.
Thomas Wright
Thomas Wright 15 days ago
Because it's nothing. Most of those "UFOs" can be much more easily explained by mundane phenomena than by aliens. It's just sensationalism - that is, driven by heavy emotion - that leads people to jump to conclusions about aliens. Scientists aren't supposed to operate in the realm of sensationalism and emotion; if you want them to believe in aliens, you first have to produce an actual alien spacecraft for them to examine. And if you can't do that, then you shut up and quit pushing your sensationalism.

@Thomas Wright Yes, these videos aren't good at all. Elizondo has told in a recent interview that the Pentagon has videos in HD at distances of about 30 feet, but these are still considered confidential. It's military stuff, we can't expect to have everything released now. If Elizondo, who worked at Pentagon think it's aliens, I think he had access to far more info then we have available in the media. Same to the retired fighter jet pilot who gave some interviews about the Tic Tac event. In my opinion they are here since the Foo Fighters in the 1940s (at least), probably were learning about us before showing themselves; now it's clear that they want to be seen by the warships, they swarmed and stood there for 12 hours, maybe to test our tolerance, who knows, I don't know their intentions. This technology is far ahead of what we have, they can go from stationary to hyperspeed almost instantaneously, they can drop from hight in the sky to underwater, no human aircraft can do that, and I believe that if any nation had this technology since 2004 (or maybe before) we would already know. Also, they have camouflage, the Chilean UFO, released by the navy, was only visible on IR.

Bottom line: there are things about these phenomena that just plain don't make any sense if there is some sort of intelligence behind them. My thought: they are probably mundane phenomena that just haven't been completely identified yet. There are a few things to consider too: First, quite a lot of those videos are in IR. Objects don't look the same in IR as they do in visible light. If you look at a jet plane in IR, for example, you're not going to see wings; you'll mostly see the thruster, as that's the part of the jet that generates the most heat. If you see birds, you're not going to see wings because most of the heat will be generated by the bird's body. Second, some of these camera angles are extremely narrow, and the cameras are focused on objects that are moving at angles to the aircraft. This means that the background will make the objects appear to be moving much faster than they actually are due to the rapid shift in perspective. I've actually seen one video where someone demonstrated this, and concluded that the "UAPs" in the video could probably be best identified as ducks or some other type of waterfowl.

The guest from another channel said '' these demons need permission to invade your life '' this is incorrect. I had an actual close encounter in 1988 a large cigar shaped orange glowing craft hovered next to my car in Sydney Australia I was with a friend who also saw it. In 1993 I was abducted in my sleep, I had no control at all, first i suffered a form of total paralysis and fear and then was taken into the craft where I was treated well they showed me maps and other interesting things and then returned to my bed next to my wife. The deception is the media painting them as aliens when in fact they are demons from our world and this is too frightening to consider for most but it is all getting closer, my faith is firm in Christ who is Greater than demons and fallen angels

Omuamua is aliens. Nitrogen icebergs are insanely improbable. You’d need 100 times the mass of the galaxy to have enough nitrogen icebergs for one to hit us. Or at least 100% worth trying to chase down
Thomas Wright
Thomas Wright 17 days ago
@Nicholas Nelson I think Loeb is stretching, just trying to garner support for his sensationalistic view, and thus reaching for anything that he feels might support his position. And I think he's wrong. What we saw was a piece of space junk, not a piece of alien technology. And by the way, it is nearly impossible to tell what the probability of anything is when you're working with a sample size of zero or only one, because you have to have multiple samples in order to determine what the likelihood of anything is. Again, I feel that Loeb is just making stuff up at this point because he doesn't want there to be any criticism of his proposed theory.

@Thomas Wright I did mean swing by and not impact the planet. I heard that bit of info on a recent interview with Avi Loeb. So there’s the source And what does it matter if it was tumbling? It’s space junk. Btw, it was tumbling at a regular rate. A nitrogen iceberg would be out gassing like crazy and tumbling all irregularly. Plus this thing could be millions and millions of years old. The light sail doesn’t have to be functioning for it to be a light sail. And guess what, we’ve only started transmitting radio 80 years ago! That means anything farther than 80 light years away *doesn’t* know we exist. As you may know, the galaxy is around 100,000 light years across. On a cosmological timescale, we showed up on scopes just last week There is tons of evidence that supports it being space junk from some alien civilization. In fact, it aligns with pretty much all the evidence available. We have to try and catch it to figure this out

Except that Oumuamua didn't hit us. Didn't even come close. So you don't need 100 times the mass of the galaxy to have an Oumuamua. Nitrogen ice hasn't been ruled out, and so still serves as a better explanation than "ALIENS!" Plus, Oumuamua is tumbling. If it is piloted by aliens, they had way too much bourbon and shouldn't be driving. It does make me wonder, though, why would aliens send an object like this to our solar system, but not attempt to make contact with the one planet that seems to be bathed in radio transmissions? To me, most of these "ALIENS!" theories break down if you just stop and ask, "Why would they do that?"

If you are a True Christian, you know there is no life on or from other planets, we know what they really are. If you believe the lies they are pushing, you will believe anything from anyone. Get right with God, the creator. Do not believe this hype.

Also, I would suggest you read Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis. Truthfully, there is no reason to presuppose that a Creator God wouldn't also create life elsewhere in the universe, or that, if he did, they would be fallen, sinful creatures as humans are according to Christian theology.

What do you think of the UFO sightings from the US Military? It seems we will learn that there are actual goverment scientists which do not know what is going on there. Do you think a warp drive would explain the flying capability from this "tiktaks"?

@MrSummitville My point exactly. "ALIENS! (* hair *)" is basically just the cry of wishful thinking. Only when we have an actual object to examine, or an actual alien that we can talk to and/or examine, then and only then can we say with any certainty that it's aliens. Until then, there's no way to be certain of anything. But the mundane explanations - like ducks - are far more likely and, more importantly, less sensationalistic (that is, not driven by emotion).

@Thomas Wright Dots on a computer screen are proof of WHAT exactly? The same goes of out-of-focus blobs on video? There are 5 BILLION cell phones, most have a camera, and yet we do not have one clear image of an alien craft.

@Joel Michalowitz "Maybe the best we got so far." See, that's the part where you're wrong. It's not even a good explanation, much less the best we've got. You mean to tell me that extraterrestrial creatures are going to cross billions of miles of the cosmos, expending whatever resources and taking whatever risks that entails- not to mention the time requred - and the only thing they're going to do is spin doughnuts in our atmosphere? That's the problem I have: that people seem to latch onto what amounts to a terrible explanation and treat it as if it's the only one. You at least downgraded it from "only" to "best," but that's still not good enough.

And what these people don't seem to understand is that the people talking the loudest about these UAPs are POLITICIANS. Politicians aren't scientists. They're professional con artists.

But it is telling that, even though today is the day the DOD is supposed to reveal the truth, I haven't heard anything but * cricket! cricket! cricket! * so far.

With the near unlimited universes around that we and the fact we exist means its more than likely there is complex life out there, the odds are more in the favor of complex life due to the fact we exist around the stars we can see
Thomas Wright
Thomas Wright 21 day ago
Not really. When you're working with a sample size of one, you can't really determine what the odds are. It could be 1/1,000, which might mean we could be near other intelligent beings. Or it could be 1/1,000,000,000, in which case, we're likely not to see any anywhere near us. If the odds are greater for, then we'd likely have seen evidence of it by now, say, radio transmissions, similar to how those tentacle aliens in Galaxy Quest found us (though it's not likely such signals would go beyond about 50 lightyears - they'd dissipate too much and blend in with background noise at that point). Frankly, it seems to me that the chances are that there is intelligent life out there somewhere, but it's probably so far away from us that we'd never be able to meaningfully interact.

Thank you for this video. Would be interesting to hear your take on the ticktac videos. What phenomenon could be the surce of that?
Thomas Wright
Thomas Wright 21 day ago
Ducks. Seriously, there's a video where a guy basically demonstrates that they are likely ducks. For one thing, the videos are actually IR, not visible light, and objects look radically different in IR than visible light (for example, if you view a jet in IR, you don't see the wings nearly as prominently as you see the thruster). And the angle that the camera was in relation to the plane itself seems to suggest that the "speed" of the objects was just the background shifting angle very quickly. And keep in mind, the camera is zoomed in on a very narrow angle, about the equivalent if you held a dime out at arm's length.

With some of the multi-layered data streams of unidentified aerial phenomenon coming in from military sources this constant drumbeat of “it’s not aliens” is starting to sound like the technologists saying “advances in technology will continue to create jobs that will keep people in the drivers seat and necessary to the continued existence of society.” Sure that made sense 20 years ago but I think we’re starting to see a brighter future coming down the pipeline!

The idea of "hiding" the evidence starts to make more sense in the fact of them just not publishing it because they just don't have an answer yet. Wouldn't sound reassuring if world leaders were like "Look at this extremely odd object that we have no way of understanding nor are sure if it's friendly"

My opinion is: it's never aliens, even if it is aliens. Only if it's literally the only way to explain something should the hypothesis be entertained, and even then efforts to falsify it should be vigorously pursued. Effectively, to conclude as an admission of defeat. If it turns out to be the case, we shouldn't be in a hurry to reach them. Not because I fear what they may do to us, i fear what we may do to them. We are equal part bonobo and chimp, and too often the chimp wins out. Pessimistic skepticism is the way to go, not optimistic skepticism. Peter Ward is probably correct IMO: there is intelligent life, but it is so far away and radio signals lost in interstellar noise, and any practical form of travel and communication impossible, that we'd probably never no. Rare still translates into countless civilizations, but too far away to be meaningfully detected.

There's definitely life in the universe other than on earth. There's billions of galaxies with billions of planets out there so to say they're all lifeless is ridiculous. There's probably worlds out there where life is simple, advanced, and everything in between. There could be worlds with human like beings living in there own versions of the middle ages, or with similar technology to ours thinking the same things we think but because of the distance between us, we'll only ever be hypothetical thoughts to eachother. What about all the recent UFO/UAP videos being released by the military. I'm very interested to see what comes from that report. But to be honest, it's hard to believe we're being visited by aliens who fly around in super advanced ships but don't reveal themselves. They'd clearly be able to detect that we're aware of their presence so them playing hide and seek doesn't make alot of sense

It's a dumb argument. It amounts to, "If you can't disprove it, then you have to assume it's true." And that's not how science works. There may be loads of mysterious things about the universe, but unless we can study them and see what they really are, then it's pointless to argue in their favor. Bring us an actual alien, or STFU.
