Wednesday Writing Topic: Aliens

So my post on Monday hinted at my WIP involving aliens and being a few raised their eyebrows I thought it would be interesting to discuss just that: aliens.

There are loads of theories on aliens ranging from creepy to friendly, but one such newer theory has brought on a lot of interest lately by experts. First let me say, this is not the theory my WIP surrounds, which for reasons of not divulging too much I'll keep that a secret. But I will say the theme comes from a combination of potential fact and fiction--which is what I try to bring to all my stories.

Now on to today's theory: Aliens in the moon.

What?! You scream. Yes, I know, but there are some interesting elements of our history that suggest the possibility. First, the last moon landing was on December 17, 1972. Why? Why when technology advances continue to soar did we stop landing on the moon? Some researchers believe it is because we were told to not come back. Hmm...I'm not sure. But a few astronauts have publicly admitted to some weird things going on when they were up there--including Buzz Aldrin and Edgar Mitchell.
Mitchell did an interview in the UK where he claimed the government has been covering up UFOs for six decades. Taken from that interview:

  • Chillingly, he claimed our technology is "not nearly as sophisticated" as theirs and "had they been hostile", he warned "we would be been gone by now".

What do you think? Aliens are real and we came up with some "compromise" with them for us to stay away and them to stay away? It is interesting that alien sightings have greatly decreased since the 70's. Hmm...or maybe it's because they're all around us, co-existing beside us...waiting for their time to strike. :)

M.B.

  1. Ummmmmmm freaky (both the idea of aliens and the narrator's voice in the first clip haha). I just thought of a million conspiracy theories, but I won't fill your comments with them...TR must have been soooo interesting to research though!

  2. I'm always surprised to encounter humans who doubt the existence of extraterrestrial beings. I've been a visitor to your planet for some time now and have never tried to conceal myself. Furthermore, I'd like to assure you I'm not "waiting to strike." I'm here to study the many fascinating aspects of your world, especially its literature.

  3. Hmmm, I don't know. I think the universe is large and unknowing. I don't believe in aliens but I don't not believe in them either. I guess, I'll just believe it when I see it.

  4. Laura -- Yeah, I agree re: the narrator!

    Hannah -- I hope you (and I for that matter)never see one to confirm anything. :)

  5. This was fascinating.

    I was enthralled by Whitley Strieber's alien books when I was a teenager. They're non-fiction and spine-chilling.

    I don't think we're alone.

  6. Medeia -- Yep, I read Strieber to research the WIP and totally agree.

    And for the record, I absolutely believe in aliens, the scope I'm not sure, but the universe is entirely too expansive. We aren't that cool, sorry, we're just not. :)
