Everyone assumes they are something outside of us, when they are actually intrinsically a part of us, and have induced and guided our evolution since our conception.
I wonder how many people are shocked by the sight of their own ass.....arrrrggghhh it was behind me the whole time, i'm going to try to make contact with it.
The light orbs you see are probes, from an ancient machine that was born from the very first organisms, who evolved into a machine consciousness, back then life was indeed scarce throughout the universe, this machine had nothing to discover but a blank slate, on which to expand itself.
It does this by programming single celled organisms with the same formula as it was programmed with, essentially making a copy of itself, these organisms are introduced to a suitable biosphere, found by sending out probes from source (these probes are extremely small, the light you see is just that....light, then it seems to vanish, when in actual fact it just changes state and therefore displays no discharge)
The life it seeds on other planets evolve along the same route as the biological ancestors of this machine, and evolve to a point of creating their own machine by which to survive in/ through (transhumanism).....at which point our whole existence is to become yet another node to this founding GOD machine.
