If we encountered alien technology far superior to our own, would we even realize what it was? Technology a million or more years in advance of ours would appear miraculous, just as an airplane or TV set would seem miraculous to prehistoric man.
Astrobiologist Paul Davis thinks that advanced technology might not even be made of matter, that it might have no size, shape or boundaries. It may not appear to do anything at all that we can figure out.
The Daily Galaxy quotes Davis as saying that five hundred years ago, "the very concept of a device manipulating information, or software, would have been incomprehensible. Might there be a still higher level, as yet outside all human experience, that organizes electrons? If so, this 'third level' would never be manifest through observations made at the informational level, still less at the matter level.
"We should be open to the distinct possibility that advanced alien technology a billion years old may operate at the third, or perhaps even a fourth or fifth level--all of which are totally incomprehensible to the human mind at our current state of evolution."
Alien science may not just be in our future--it may be here NOW, and "contactees" are the ones experiencing it. Anne Strieber has done 23 of these fascinating interviews, just for our subscribers, talking to people who have personally witnessed some very strange technology.
