Ufologist, author and IFTF research fellow Jaques Vallee has no doubts: Within 10 years we will discover a planet where there is a basis of finding another civilization or at least life.
At a recent LOTT Jacques gathered the IFTF staff to talk about his recent experiences at an event he attended in Saudi Arabia, “Learning from Space”, where Bill Clinton among many other prominent people joined forces to discuss how we can benefit from and prepare ourselves for what is to be discovered in the great unknown – space!
He mentioned three different approaches to investigating space that might form a conflict in the future of discoveries and benefits:
1. Human evolution and survival through discovering space
How the human race can benefit from researching the opportunities of space was the most important thing for the many experts gathered in Saudi Arabia. Alternative sources of energy, a greater understanding of our own world and learning from other civilizations is the best way to move forward.
2. Contact with other civilizations
The public seems to have a great interest in discovering new life on other planets or even in other galaxies. The thrill of science fiction novels, films on aliens and Roswell anecdotes has made the public hungry for the ever present question: “Are they really out there?”
3. New discoveries
This is where the people funding space research have their greatest interest. Previous research in space has given us new business opportunities in healthcare, environmental areas and even in entertainment. The investors of this kind of research have earned a massive amount on the investments made and are therefore eager to pour even more money into space research.
But who are going to make the major steps in discovering new technologies, aliens and the answer to the survival of the human race? Jacques Vallee answers bluntly: “China. Don’t kid yourselves – China is going to claim the moon. They had no problem claiming Tibet and there are no people on the moon…”
Dette forår har Innovation Lab to udsendte agenter installeret i Silicon Valley - nærmere bestemt ved Institute For The Future og Innovation Center Denmark i Palo Alto. Herfra vil de bringe de nyeste tendenser hjem til os. Nogle af dem vil vi bruge i vores daglige arbejde, andre vil blive kanaliseret rundt i biksen og lagret - men selvfølgelig lander de bedste nyheder på vores blog... So stay tuned!
