The two basic components of controversy in the UFO phenomenon are the two sides which seem to state the obvious. On the one hand we have the believers that suggest the discovery of extraterrestrial life is just a matter of looking at the right portion of sky with radio telescopes. And on the other side we have the skeptics who suggest if life were so prevalent out in the universe it would have shown itself to those of us on Earth already. But how difficult would it be to shield a planet from evidence of life out in the stars? And is there evidence that this is exactly what is happening?
Michio Kaku demonstrated that one of the most logical methods of exploring space for an extraterrestrial civilization would be to send out automated machines. These machines would then land on a planet’s moon in a star system and use the mass from that moon to spread out and explore other star systems. From there the probes land on moons and so on like a virus spreading outward from the planet’s point of origin and eventually reaching Earth.
The devices would be advanced to such a degree that they may be indistinguishable from an organic entity. And the acquisition of resources from these planetary moons would have to happen in a secretive way, likely coring out the middle or mining the interior of the planetoid for decades or even thousands of years, converting the matter from the inside and turning it into other materials that could be used to build both the humanoid looking aliens but also the vessels they ride around in.
Upon finding a civilization they would have to choose a moon nearby but far from the actual planet itself. Something that would not likely be studied thoroughly before contact was made officially. Somewhere like the Martian moon Phobos. If a probe or satellite were sent from the planet’s surface it would have to be intercepted and destroyed. Of course this is precisely what some say happened after the 1988 launch of two Russian Space probes Phobos 1 and 2. Both disappeared and one vanished only moments after photographing a disc-shaped object above the moon itself.
Similarly the sphere the operations were taking place on would show severe signs of hollowing out after a while. In the 1950s scientists came up with a curious theory that the interior of the strange moon could actually be hollow. In 2010 an independent study concluded that while Phobos was not likely entirely hollow, its interior was a spongy rock-like structure that suggested up to 25% of its interior was mysteriously gone throughout the strange body.
So is this evidence that Phobos was selected by an extraterrestrial probe and then set as a platform for alien visitation and quarantining to Earth? Why would such a civilization dedicate so much time to keeping Earth from learning about other civilizations? A sufficiently powerful extraterrestrial civilization may see this as a way of leveling the galactic playing field for new and emerging civilizations.
