We humans are on the verge of leaving our solar system and becoming interstellar travelers. NASA has designed a ship that will go to the nearest star-system, Alpha Centauri, which has a star identical to the our Sun, and perhaps a habitable planet orbiting it like the Earth around the Sun, in just two weeks. Recently, we have made a breakthrough at The University of Washington, that will provide us with the means to power a warp drive engine for NASA’s Star Ship; we made negative mass.
We are on the verge then, of becoming the same life forms we call UFO’s to our skies, but in the skies of other worlds. Since we can now soon go to the stars, it implies there has been other life in our galaxy that has come to our star, the Sun. We are on the verge of becoming aliens to other worlds. If we can do that, there is no reason why aliens have not come here since thousands of years ago because, there are places in our galaxy, the Milky Way, that are millions of years older than here.
As Neil Freer suggested, when we become a starfaring civilization, that is, when we have left the solar system and gone to the stars, we will be invited into stellar society, which means we will abide by a new galactic government for which our rules do not apply and that has already been established throughout the Galaxy.
We are becoming interesting not just because of our starships, but because of our extraordinary development of artificial intelligence technologies. These are the two subjects of the most profound interest; artificial intelligence (AI) and ETs (extraterrestrials) in our age, an exciting time.
