If we pare Unidentified Atmospheric Phenomenon down to it’s most essential attributes, what do we find? One could say it is a form of communication advanced in it’s characteristics regardless of their origin as compared to our knowledge of how they occur whether by intent or not.
The late Mac Tonnies was a severe critic of the conceptualizing of extraterrestrial communications as being composed of radio signals or relatively crude mathematical ciphers being sent as a codex for sentience.
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
― Arthur C. Clarke, Profiles of the Future: An Inquiry Into the Limits of the Possible
Why are these phantom projections seen exclusively in our atmosphere and why are their appearances inconsistent? Our own signal communications are often weakened or obliterated by atmospheric conditions. What of those arising from a distant planet?
What is a universal language more elegant than maths?
It was also Arthur C Clarke who observed that "If we have learned one thing from the history of invention and discovery, it is that, in the long run — and often in the short one — the most daring prophecies seem laughably conservative."
In UAP we have the aforesaid communication that combines the familiar with a recombinant image of the familiar in what could be described from our point of view, a hopelessly naive interpretation of what is possible.
One could say they resemble a child’s drawing of the evolution within aircraft technology that follows a protocol of mixing technological futurism with the contemporary line of reasoning that would anticipate future developments as if whoever created these projections knew in advance what the development of various applications of technology would lead.
In the contemporary era of living individuals, we have examples of this protocol. In WW2, the demonstration of aircraft seeking missiles arrived without it’s application being mastered here on Earth.
All we have in hand from UAP as I stated earlier is that it is communicating something. As many readers know, I have explored the permutations of this in various theories, one after the other.
What is the content of this communication if it could be summarized? Two striking characteristics are commonalities.
1. They acknowledge present technology specifically in relation to aircraft, not cars, boats or automobiles. Aircraft to us represent the traversing of vast distances quickly.
2. They take the state of this art to a next level.
Think of the resulting confusion among our own species a thousand years ago if any of our current technologies were observed.
We might say, the projection of these images are intentional. The message is one of “similar to” as in the real message is in the medium. What if these images are a intentional differentiation of our own visual language? Could they represent communications through spooky actions at a distance? A form of visual language? Could these be a metaphor that states:
1. A medium of traversing spacetime by sending a communication that is a visual codex? One that changes and says to us, our technologies are known and then acknowledges they change. A form that indicates both tracking and observation.
The message within this message as a response is to alter the acknowledgement by taking it one step further.
2. The state of the art here is acknowledged with a response of an advanced perspective just far enough from the leading edge without too much of an extension to state here is an example of an advanced perspective visually demonstrated.
If this concept is true it answers the question of purpose as opposed to our own concepts of purpose that see this phenomenon has having either none or being ambivalent. It also answers the behavior of UAP mirroring our own evolution of technology by differentiating a response.
Is the medium the message? Are these ghost images a reflection of Arthur C Clarkes vision of the monolith awaiting our advancement to respond?
