UFOs

UFO sightings on the First Coast, Florida

UFO over Colombia --It kind of looks star shaped...what's interesting to me though is that although you can mostly just see a series of lights together, unlike a lot of similar sightings I've seen, this one actually looks like it might be a solid object with lights on it as opposed to individual lights just flying in a formation.  But my guess is that this is just some sort of drone.

UFOs over Midlothian, Scotland --I think they bear a slight resemblance to squids.

Is the Universe a Simulation? --An interesting thought attributed to Nick Bostrom from the article, "If such simulations are possible in theory, he reasons, then eventually humans will create them — presumably many of them. If this is so, in time there will be many more simulated worlds than nonsimulated ones. Statistically speaking, therefore, we are more likely to be living in a simulated world than the real one."

Are Super-Intelligent Aliens Hiding Within Our Atoms? --Another interesting thought.  What if intelligence is more vast on a smaller scale?  What if we should be looking through the microscope for intelligence instead of the telescope?
