Surely you must have thought that the Seti program was a legit if you downloaded and installed the software? Was it a dumb and stupid program back then or just now?
I personally think SETI's main purpose it to communicate with orbiting weapons platforms, space labs, the ISS, deep space satellite arrays and warship. You might think it’s crazy talk but just know that USA, Russia and Japan have been installing and testing various weapon systems in the skies above us since the 60's, mainly in the form of energy systems, reconnaissance and satellites rail guns and other forms of projectile weapons, manned orbiting labs, warships and EMP weapons platforms.
I wonder if and when Wikileaks will release the full report on governmental and corporate spending on black programs. Through the US Freedom of Information act we already know that over the last 5 years the US tax payers and economy has lost between $33 billion to $44 billion per year on black programs, only God knows how much money large multinational corporations are putting into them. The truly sad thing is that less than 10% of that technology will end up in the hands of the public and usually after more than decade, which by then it’s already superseded multiple times by something else. For us it’s the latest and greatest idea/product of all time, to the Military Industrial Complex it’s just old trash. Years ago I read a paper written by the CEO of a major corporation that was heavily involved in large military and commercial programs and he was quoted in saying that their technology (the Military Industrial Complex) advances by almost 44 years for every calendar year we pass.
