“Don’t forget to contact aliens this evening.
All Twitter messages composed between 8 p.m. EDT Friday (June 29) and 3 a.m. EDT Saturday (June 30) tagged with the hashtag #ChasingUFOs will be collectively beamed up to space Aug. 15, toward a spot in the sky from which a possible alien signal originated.
The cosmic tweet is a belated reply to the Wow! signal, a mysterious radio transmission that was detected at the Big Ear radio observatory in Ohio in 1977 coming from the direction of the constellation Sagittarius. At its peak, the 72-second transmission was 30 times more powerful than ambient radiation from deep space, prompting the volunteer astronomer Jerry Ehman to scrawl “Wow!” next to the data on a computer printout, giving the signal its name.”
If you have prayed free of charge and God has heard you here is your chance to prove you have an Alien up there.
I sent tweeted and said # alien, 35 yrs is 2 long.
Promptly came the reply: got a scrw drvr?
I tweeted back: ? u need fixing?
Here is the reply: I’m with MM a long night it is.
I gave up. It was ridiculous talking to an Alien who is of different wavelength. A one-sided conversation where you had to tweet and imagine each time what the other party could have meant.
To me there is only one MM. 34-18-34
I never thought when you have Marilyn Monroe for a long night you would need a screw driver. May be she needs fixing. (Her head was somewhat in disarray while she was here.) Or I need my head fixed to have tweeted in the first place.

If Aliens come here there shall be future shock for great many.

Marvel Comics will simply have to be airbrushed away. Out with kryptonite and batman’s cape. Both shall be replaced by something more life-like, I mean Alien-size to fit three microns width of alien forms.

Those who swore by Star Wars and genuflected before some sci-fi mumbo-jumbo will simply dig a hole and be nomads of the Middle Kingdom.

Scientology will prove to be the Emperor’s New Clothes.  Some Alien street Arab will point to the ridiculous travesty of Religion and laugh their heads off. Is it Mission Impossible Mr. Cruise?

Those paranormalists will levitate while their brains that they left behind will go around asking if their brains can be set right.

Harry Potter will learn that he simply cannot escape the Hall of Incoherence in which he is trapped between bad prose and infantile fantasies.

These are some of the future shocks we are going to live with. Aliens will show themselves. Whether we take them for what they are depends on this question: Have we learned to separate the real from fantasy? If we have not  set our upper case in order we will see Aliens and look to the sky while ther are down at our feet.

Think of all the conspiracy theories we have; do they speak well as to our judgment or our intellect? We have learned to progress while undermining progressively the learning. We have covered up our tracks in such a fashion we all have become too clever for our own good. We merely lived not with human beings with real problems. We escaped instead  in virtual reality. Perhaps the invasion of Aliens ,-not in a negetive sense but in moral terms, may drive us to give learning its right value. Not the instant gratification but acquisition of maturity by willing to pay the price for becoming real human beings.

Tailspin:What value is to bend spoons? Aliens may teach Uri geller (if his gift is genuine) a few tricks  to make some  real contribution to science. For instance relation between mind and matter and not limit it to some spoons and forks.

LONDON (AP) – British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking says aliens are out there, but it could be too dangerous for humans to interact with extraterrestrial life.

The 68-year-old scientist says a visit by extraterrestrials to Earth would be like Christopher Columbus arriving in the Americas, “which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.”

He speculates most extraterrestrial life will be similar to microbes, or small animals – but adds advanced lifeforms may be “nomads, looking to conquer and colonize.”(Ack:The Chicago Tribune-AP Press)

We as human race have shown one particulat trait that is a very serious flaw. we are Half-Half. Half cynic and Half sentimental.

We are prepossessingly cold eyed in the way we can turn a quick buck while fouling up our cradle*. It doesn’t speak well for mankind who can write such nostalgic pieces extolling one’s native hearth without batting an eyelid. It is like Oedipus writing ‘Life With Father’ as told to his mother.

We are romantic and cynical at the same time that even Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde will have difficulty to adjust among us.

At the turn of last half of 19th century the cry heard among the dudes,’Go West, young man.’ Now what with melting ice caps the cry seems to be among nations,’What is in it for us?’

The way we commemorate our combined greed for having despoiled the Earth resources is sickening. All we need is an eulogy by some President at a $1000 dollar a plate Memorial dinner for  the Artic Ice Cap that silently vanished forever from view.

Our facination with little green alien saying ‘Take me to your chief ‘ shall soon be moved out of the realm of fantasy. We may conquer planets in space and claim our spheres of influence in outerspace. We shall scour the planets and defoliate  flora and fauna that may exist there. We shall also easily convince ourselves we have done no damage. We see with our perceived concepts of today and destroy what is the cradle of life in manner beyond our imagination. If we have dared to carpet bomb or use napalam on earth it stands to reason we shall try much more virulent chemicals in order to turn up Industrially viable alternatives that the earth may find use for.

We are poets who ‘Howl'(sorry Ginsburg, you didn’t live to see the bozos making a meal of the earth. What you howled against were the beginning of the end.)  One part of us shall churn out sentimental pieces: we shall play  the Carpenter and the Walrus while we dine on little aliens to our satisfaction.

Let me quote from the Yahoo News:

the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said

“The prospect of the Arctic being navigable during summer months, leading to both shorter shipping routes and access to untapped energy resources, has impelled the Chinese government to allocate more resources to Arctic research,” SIPRI researcher Linda Jakobson said.

Canada, Denmark, Norway, Russia and the United States are already at odds over how to divvy up the Arctic riches, claiming overlapping parts of the region — estimated to hold 90 billion untapped barrels of oil — and wrangling over who should control the still frozen shipping routes.
* Imagine we thought of using the moon as giant billboard for products as service to some multinational companies. With such mindset you think galaxies would nudge our sense of wonder?

Thoughts on Moscow Cloud
In what seems a rerun of Independence Day, a pale gold halo was observed over the Russian capital city’s Western Dt. on  last Wednesday. Meteorologists have concluded it as an optical effect, ‘Several fronts have been passing through Moscow recently, there was an intrusion of the Arctic air too, the sun was shining from the west – this is how the effect was produced.’
We always want a logical explanation from what phenomenon say a rainbow or twister we see. But can we always reduce everything into cut and dried; or put away into pigeon holes? Flashing lights noticed in the sky or any other just because defied a simple explanation gave rise to far more bizarre ideas: UFO, alien abduction etc. We have never for once unearthed a foolproof evidence to support these.
There are two groups of people when it comes to the idea of exobiology or life on other planets. On one hand we do not accept the progress we as species achieved on our collective endeavors. This group cannot imagine man could achieve worthwhile since he is merely a cut above his ape ancestors. So his achievements owe to active help from some super-intelligent Aliens. Number of books have been written and lapped up by so many. Why so? We want to believe in something. OK pyramids are Alien- made to house men who, as X-rays reveal, were merely pharaohs in name and suffered from TB, Marfan’s syndrome,  bad teeth and so on.

Rest of us fall in the other group that foresees conquering other worlds and colonizing these. Here also I see wishful thinking overtaking good sense. We haven’t conquered ourselves or our silliness. Who shall hand over kingdoms to us, some microbes or Aliens? Despite my skepticism we may still learn to reach outer planets by some technological marvel. But would we behave as gods or as men? My skepticism opts for the latter. We may even learn to become robots. That reminds me of a fellow who was sent by his father do medicine and ended up as a butcher’s assistant in some meat packing factory.

We, coming to think of it, are funny creatures. The more chance we have to be rightly informed in this internet age, we are dying from misinformation. A symptom of this is the number of conspiracy theories we have to wade through at every turn.

Strength of two individuals coming together produces synergy and it grows exponentially. Thus one plus one is numerically two. But what they can achieve is however of a different league.
Having said the above in the interplay of several nations, tribes, individuals what is run off is progress, which is unlike anything that existed before. Somewhat like Moscow Cloud.
