According to some researchers, over the past five decades or so the U.S. government may have been able to acquire advanced technologies from crashed, donated or otherwise obtained extraterrestrial vehicles.
It seems unclear if this could be true or if various kinds of exotic devices might also have been procured that could vastly enhance energy production, health care, aviation, space programs, manufacturing, electronics, engineering, agriculture and other economically-significant activities.
Reports about the UFO situation often note that one of the reasons for security on this matter was to obtain advanced technologies that could give the U.S. an advantage over adversaries and keep knowledge about them top secret.
Once obtained, these technologies were then possibly incorporated into the pipeline for application in highly-secure defense programs and other efforts.
The tight security was to ensure that adversaries did not obtain these advanced developments, as the story goes.
SECURITY AND PROSPERITY
If there is any truth to these types of tales, it seems to make sense. Just like other more conventional defense and business methods and products, maintaining security from competitors is a normal and natural position to take.
There are also accounts that claim some of these unconventional advanced technologies were discreetly inserted into certain U.S. companies for integration into our overall technological progress.
At this point – with the U.S. experiencing significant economic difficulties, our manufacturing and other businesses going overseas, our energy dependence sapping our wealth, and the challenges of shifting to new and more prosperous economic activities – it seems like a good time to reconsider the application and integration of any advanced technologies into mainstream U.S. economic activity.
Most people would probably agree that security related to national defense should continue to be of utmost importance. There is already a big enough challenge regarding weapons technology falling into the hands of dangerous people.
But, if there are benign technologies or devices that can enhance America and our friends, then shouldn’t we take reasonable steps to get them into the pipeline of economic development and innovation?
After all, the problems of pollution could be solved by cleaner energy. The costs of health care that are draining our economy might be mitigated by advanced knowledge about biology, genetics and cellular function. Agriculture could be enhanced by new understanding of botany. The list of possible benefits appears to be very long.
And, maybe most importantly, human intelligence and consciousness might undergo significant advances by greater understanding about ourselves and our capabilities.
SUCCESS AND PEACE
Discussions about these kinds of issues, though seemingly far-out, might actually involve very practical and down-to-Earth considerations.
Hypothetically, what would be the best way to integrate exotic technologies and knowledge obtained from or taught to us by extraterrestrial or other beings who are more advanced in some ways than what we are today?
How do we move from our current sociological, technological and economic positions, or predicaments, to the next level of human development in these areas?
Maybe we are actually facing this question now. Or, perhaps we might face it someday in the future. In either case, it seems like interesting food for thought to consider what the most intelligent steps might be.
Because our current economic situation is so difficult, and the public discussions about UFOs, extraterrestrials, expanded human consciousness, new scientific knowledge and similar topics are in the news, TV, movies, books and the Web, maybe a national debate about carefully and strategically releasing any acquired advanced technology could be a good idea.
If the U.S. is to continue to be a world leader and be prosperous at home, it seems obvious that we need to keep moving forward with many kinds of improved technologies, greater scientific knowledge and a more successful society for our people on multiple levels.
Combining what we can achieve ourselves with what we can learn from others could help achieve greater prosperity, peace and successes of many kinds.
