  1. A friend recommended me this book. The synopsis is that technology such as microchips, military stealth and other technologies were developed as the result of our Government obtaining alien technologies. My immediate feeling is that such a reality is possible. However, I feel that aliens would not deliberately share any such technologies with a nuclear crazed world population. It is then, that my friend coined in that the technology was not given to us, but found at the Roswell crash site. Then, reverse engineered. And poof, technology existed! The reality that begins to unfold, is that humans simply lacked the capacity to innovate much less create our modern world. That is interesting... However, whatever technology found at a crash site would surely be limited. As to not be able to account for the wide spectrum of increasingly limitless varieties of technologies that exist today. Just the fact that processors and technical components become more advanced every year, shows that humans are quite versatile in understanding and developing new waves of the future. This entire conversation emerged from a question that derived in my mind... A question about human capacity to create amazing technological feats. (Such as a space ship, a computer, or a visual display.) What intellectual requirements does one possess in order to break things down on a chalk board, understand everything, and bring it all to fruition... Does University really mold fine minds, enabling such creative ability?? ...Or is there an imaginative experimental curiosity that leads to such "linear" advancements?
