Now That Strange Metal Monoliths Are Appearing All Over The World, Let’s Talk About Aliens For Second

When it comes to the possibility of extraterrestrial life, I think sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke said it best with this quote:

“Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not. Both are equally terrifying”

Yeah, wrap your head around that for a second

When my doctor asks me why I have a lot of trouble sleeping at night, it’s usually because I’m lying there thinking about stuff like that. Welcome to my brain

The reason why I’m talking about aliens, the universe, and stuff of that nature is because of some weird things that have happened recently. If you’ve been on social media over the past week, chances are you’ve heard or seen something about these mysterious metal monoliths that are popping out of nowhere. They look like this

I first started writing this blog when the first one appeared in a desert in Utah last week, but then I got swept up in a beer, food, and football-filled Thanksgiving Weekend Tornado for a few days and I never finished the blog. By the time I escaped that tornado’s grasp and came back to reality, the story had already changed. The original Utah monolith suddenly disappeared, and then another one of these metal structures popped up on a hill in Romania of all places

So what is going on here? What the hell are these things? Who is putting them in these random places? What does this all mean? Do I have any Thanksgiving leftovers in my fridge still? These are all good questions that have yet to be answered. Even though these metal monoliths will probably just end up being part of some lame marketing campaign or an elaborate art project or some shit, there is a big part of me that wants to believe that aliens are behind this

First and foremost, I believe in aliens. I spent a good amount of time studying subjects like the universe and possible extraterrestrial life during my teenage years, and this research mainly consisted of me getting stoned out of my mind and watching countless hours of the show Ancient Aliens with my hand in a bag of Doritos

But in all seriousness, I really do believe in aliens, so before I get into the monoliths, I want to talk about aliens in general for a little bit

Basically, I believe in aliens because I think a scenario where there is other life somewhere else in the universe is a lot more plausible than a scenario where there is nothing else out there except for us. I also think that anybody who tries to write off aliens as an absolute impossibility is being way too closed minded on the subject

I mean, just think about the fact that the universe is expanding at such a rapid pace that we can’t even grasp exactly how big it is because it is constantly changing. Really think about that for a second. The universe is now bigger than it was when you first started reading this blog, and don’t even get me started on how there are possibly other universes, dimensions etc. out there that we don’t even know about yet. How can people hear this information, digest it for a little bit, and then still turn around and say with confidence that there can’t be any other life out there? Personally, I think that’s an even more ridiculous point of view to have than saying aliens exist, but that’s just me

Let me give you an example of what it sounds like to me when I hear people say, “There is no possible way aliens can be real”. I think that’s kind of like looking out at the ocean and saying, “There is no way there are any fish in there”, and when somebody challenges you on that and reminds you of things like how big the ocean is, how you can’t see underwater, and all of these other variables, you say, “Well I don’t see any fish right now. Therefore, none must be in there”

Do you see how stupid that sounds? It’s very faulty, dismissive, and quite frankly arrogant thinking to believe that only what is directly in front of us exists. Plus, just like Samuel L Jackson’s character says in Pulp Fiction, “The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence”, so just because we don’t have definitive proof of aliens and we don’t see them every day, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they don’t exist

Additionally, and this is my personal favorite stuff to consider when it comes to aliens, let’s take a look at our own planet’s history for a second. When you look back at some of the technological breakthroughs and odd religious beliefs that many ancient civilizations had, I don’t think it’s outside the realm of possibility to say that aliens might have played a role. I know to some people that sounds like a pretty half-baked thought, but I promise you it’s really interesting if you open your mind for a second and give it a chance

For example, basically every ancient culture—whether it be Ancient Greece, Ancient Egypt, The Mayans etc.—all wrote down similar stories of encountering celestial humanoids that came down to earth and did amazing things, so in return, they worshipped them as Gods. Were these Gods completely made up? Possibly. But it’s also possible that these amazing creatures were actually just aliens that came down to Earth, did a bunch of cool shit, and then left

If you don’t buy into that, why are there very similar pyramid structures in Egypt, South America, and other parts of the world when none of these cultures ever interacted with eachother? It’s not like they bought the same pyramid building sets at IKEA, so why are they all built in such similar ways? Did that just happen by chance? I’m a gambling man, and even I wouldn’t wager any money on these pyramid designs being a coincidence

I’ll stop here because I could go on for days about this, but if you’re like me and you find this kind of stuff interesting, I highly recommend the book Chariots Of The Gods by Erich von Daniken. You know it’s a good book when I recommend it, because I can’t stand reading for the most part

Anyway, let’s get back to these monoliths. Like I said above, these will probably just end up being part of some lame marketing campaign or the work of some “artist”, but I really want to believe it is the work of aliens, and you should too. Wouldn’t that be way cooler than any of the alternatives? I don’t know about you guys, but I would much rather have these metal things end up being some sort of gift from an alien species that lives in another galaxy instead of just some weird Apple ad or Banksy’s next art project

When you consider all of the other crazy stuff that has happened in 2020, aliens coming down to Earth and leaving mysterious metal sculptures everywhere doesn’t even seem that weird to me. What is weird to me is their meaning. I prefer to stay optimistic, so maybe these metal monoliths are some sort of peace offering from another planet. Maybe these aliens have been watching over us this whole time, saw how much of a shitty year we are having, and just like I believe they did in the past, they’ve decided to come back to Earth and help us out again. Taking it even further, maybe these monoliths are made out of some rare, otherworldly material, and if we melt down these sculptures and study this material, there is something within it that cures Covid-19. Am I high right now? Yes, a little bit. But just like I’ve been saying throughout this entire blog, anything is possible, and that’s all I have to say about that

Did I just use these monoliths as an excuse to write a random blog about aliens? Yeah, pretty much. But what can I say: It’s Friday, work is slow, and aliens are very interesting to talk and think about

Let’s all hope my optimistic prediction that these monoliths are gifts from aliens ends up being true, because it would really suck if they were actually just discrete landing markers for when they eventually invade Earth to enslave or kill us all
