Aliens Evolve

Scene One:

It has been many sun cycles since we first initiated infiltration with the Earth humans, far too many cycles for Earth humans to grock. At first, we took care not to be detected by the Earth humans. We grocked that it would be too traumatic for the Earth humans to discover that they are not alone in the universe. The factor we did not initially consider is Earth human indifference.

What do you intend when you posit indifference.

Let me take a pass at explaining. We grocked that if the Earth humans were to detect our presence, they would react unpredictably. Not knowing how they would handle knowing about us, we chose prudence. Despite our effort to remain undetected, we were detected by one of the more clever Earth humans who shared the discovery with other Earth humans. Very rapidly, our covert approach to infiltration became unsustainable. Our presence on the Earth planet was no longer hidden from the Earth humans.

Although our presence is not widely known among the Earth humans, knowledge of alien infiltration is real and expanding. I agree that the reaction of the Earth humans could not have been predicted. Humor is the most common reaction. Earth humans know of our presence but only find it amusing that we believe we think we are not of the Earth planet. They deal with our presence the same way they deal with any unidentified flying object that enters their awareness. They simply deny the possibility of an alien origin. Any U F O sighting is dismissed as nothing more than some natural or man-made phenomenon. The possibility of an alien origin is rejected out-of-hand.

The good news in all of this is that we can come and go on the Earth planet without worrying that the Earth humans will ever grock who we are or where we originated. We need only take care not to draw avoidable or unnecessary attention to ourselves. Our leader in the capital city of the America pod has already mastered this outing in plain sight technique. He makes no pretense of being one of the Earth humans. He boasts about being unique, smarter and more clever than any of the Earth humans and the only entity capable of rescuing the inhabitants of the America pod in particular and the Earth planet more generally from the grips of the liberal left who will destroy the America pod if our leader in the capital city is not permitted to continue to reign large. With Lieutenants like Mike p and Mitch M to support his every comment or action without regard for accuracy or authenticity, our leader in the capital city is good to go indefinitely.

I suspect that you have gotten distracted. If I grock your point, our leader in the capital city makes no effort to disguise his alien origin. It just is not necessary. The Earth humans in the America pod do not so much as give even passing consideration to our leader in the capital city not being an Earth human. Your point is that if our leader in the capital city has not been outed as alien, we need not concern ourselves about the Earth humans grocking to us and our origin. I totally agree. We can continue our infiltration as we come and go among the Earth humans. Our strategy to consolidate wealth and political power within the inner circle is progressing quite nicely. We are getting close to the tipping point where any pretense of equality and individual opportunity is no longer necessary. Soon now we can shift our focus to more aggressively dismantling the remnants of representative governance. Our leader in the capital city and his cohorts have been picking away at traditional rules and regulation, but we are near the time when governance by the few for the benefit of the few can be open and will go uncontested. The inner circle will be complete.

The Fake Facebook

Alert! Alert! Alert!

This transmission from the High Council on the Home Planet is directed to all planetoids currently participating in the edit of the Earth planet’s Internet, as per the recent directive. The Council’s surveillance has verified that the edit mechanism has been successfully imbedded in only seventy-three of the six hundred and twenty-one master nodes controlling the Earth planet’s Internet. This limited progress is disappointing. An eleven percent capture rate is far below expectations.

The Home Council is thus directing that half of your collective resources be used to continue the embedding work, while the remaining half be redirected to editing what the Earth humans refer to as Facebook.

Based on the Home Council’s analysis of the node by node imbedding of the editing mechanism, a partial installation of the embedding mechanism is sufficient for the intended purpose. The artificial intelligence in the mechanism will successfully complete the embedding without planetoid assistance. This adjustment will enable completion of the full activation of Internet editing within an acceptable time frame.

The Home Council is very pleased to inform all planetoids that, even though the rate of implementation is disappointing, the effectiveness of the edit mechanisms thus far embedded exceeds expectations. Particularly in the America pod, portions of history have been transparently edited, with no known recognition by American humans. Their grock of their existence has been subtly modified, with a corresponding shift in their values and beliefs about themselves and their relation to other Earth humans. More details will follow as they become available. Suffice it to say that their obsession with privacy and personal freedom is diminished and their acceptance of government oversight shows signs of improving. This is of course, consistent with the grand plan of the Home Council.

Please focus your attention now on the urgent necessity of Facebook intervention.

The Internet Was Edited

I’m sure that by now you are aware of fake news. Someone somewhere adds to the content of the Internet by sharing what seems like legitimate news, good information or reporting that accurately reflects some aspect of the real world. The news appears to be true and valid, when in reality, it is intentionally false or at least misleading.

With this type of deception and manipulation, it’s difficult and at times impossible to distinguish the real from the fake. Our struggle for the truth is made even more challenging when we know that people in respected positions can and do knowingly tell us that the real and true is fake and just as often that the fake is really true and should be believed. The result is that we are left wondering who, if anyone, we can trust to be straight with us. For the most part, we are reduced to taking everything on the Internet with a very large grain of sault, no matter who says it or no matter the source.

I regret having to report to you that as pervasive as fake and intentionally misleading news is, things are far worse than any of us have imagined. I have intercepted a transmission from the home planet of the aliens amongst us. Due to a technical glitch that I admittedly don’t understand, my interception of the transmission was delayed for at least several months, if not longer. I suspect this delay was intentional, to prevent us from intervening to stop the aliens amongst us from implementing the directive included in the transmission. I fear that the directive has already been carried out.

Hauntings, Witches and Aliens

The Aliens Amongst Us are back. Once again, they have highjacked the Audio Tidbits broadcast channel. They have convened to consider whether their Leader in the Capital City should remain in place or be withdrawn back to the Home Planet. This is apparently not a totally popular idea since others on the Aliens’ Home Planet are protesting.

About 12 minutes into their broadcast, their transmission is abruptly terminated by the skilled work of the crack Tidbits engineers. The broadcast feed is returned to the full control of the Tidbit staff. They are able to fill the feed with a special Halloween tune from Brett Van Donsel. Please enjoy.
