Going Green: The Cryptobotanical Hypothesis

The examples of botanical presence in the UFO phenomenon are overwhelming. UFOs are often seen in forests, and in fields. They are even seen collecting soil samples in these places and even in the cities as well. This idea of "collecting soil samples" is often used to convey the idea of high strangeness-for some reason, the idea that aliens would be interested in soil has struck us, and it has stuck. Even some of our canned cultural aphorisms about UFOs, such as "why haven't aliens landed on the white house lawn," and "little green men from Mars," include botanical notions.

I have a serious question about your cryptoterrestrial theory Mac, do you consider these beings post-Singularity, or if you don't hold to the Singularity idea, are they native to this dimension?

The reason is because this biological connection has me curious.

Well, so long as it's *serious*. ;-)

Mac, do you consider these beings post-Singularity, or if you don't hold to the Singularity idea, are they native to this dimension?

I suspect they're flesh-and-blood hominids who've enjoyed a Singularity of consciousness, if that makes any sense. I think they exploit "anomalous cognition" in a way that we're only beginning to understand (or admit to).

And while I think they're native to our dimension, it seems they have access to the "psychic" realm as well. There's an occult flavor to so many contact reports that I'm forced to assume there's some sort of nonphysical aspect to the experience.

From memory, E.T. and his shipmates were interstellar botanists :-)
