I'm not the kind of person who believes in friend of a friend myths or
conspiracy theories. However, it is plausible that we are cave dwellers
who came across a crash landed flying saucer somewhere in southern
Nevada. We found some technology we don't understand. In the absence of
imagination we made hand axes out of the computer technology, that is
laying around in the desert sand. What could we do with computers that
by far superseded computers we once used to fly to the moon? We could
break the touch screens of those computers and use a broken piece to
skin a mammoth. Unfortunately the mammoth died out. What else could we
do? We could use it to roll stones, to lock and unlock the entrances of
our caves. "Open Sesame!", "Open Siri!"
It's beyond beliefe that a life form has the skills to invent such
technology and then mostly to use this technology to take selfies,
photos of meals and to get suggestions to drink enough water, to count
the steps we walked, because we don't walk enough, if we use it as a
remote control to turn the light on and off, so we need a fitness app, a
climbing machine, virtual reality glasses for the "virtually turn light
on and off workout program".
