Alien Encounters, "The Message": a hard to find little show that's worth the search

Review: Alien Encounters, "The Message"
(S0101) We've arrived at a point in the evolution of cable television where viewers have so many channels to choose from that even people who follow the TV industry closely can't even keep track of all of them. It took me at least 15 minutes to track down the new show Alien Encounters. The show airs on a cable outlet called Science, which I have since found out is a subsidiary of sorts of the Discovery Channel. I had never heard of Science before, so when I did a quick web search to find out what time it came on, I assumed Alien Encounters was airing on SyFy because the channel names are similar.

I'm glad I was finally able to locate the Science channel because I rather enjoyed Alien Encounters. Alien Encounters is a documentary-style program that features interviews with extra-terrestrial experts and reenactments of alien-related events.

I'm fascinated by aliens, but I'm skeptical about abduction stories. Thankfully, Alien Encounters is heavy on science and light on tales of anal probes and little green men. The show is produced by Nick Sagan, the son of famed physicist Carl Sagan. Last night's premiere, "The Message", focuses on the work of SETI (Search For Extra Terrestrial Intelligence), an organization co-founded by Carl Sagan. 

The message in the episode's title refers to a project developed by SETI, which is designed to locate intelligent life in space. The project itself is actually quite fascinating. SETI has designed a computer program, which anyone can download, that attempts to isolated individual radio waves emanating from far away planets. The people who download the program essentially serve as volunteers for SETI, harnessing their lap tops' computing power in hopes of communicating with aliens.

Unlike the SETI project, there is nothing particularly ground breaking about Alien Encounters, but that's okay. The show is pretty much your standard issue documentary, but it looks good on screen. The reenactments are kind of cheesy, but that is to be expected. The experts are interesting, coherent, and un-quack-like, which is a rarity for this kind of subject matter. If you're into aliens, it's certainly worth scouring your TV guide to find the Science channel.

Mind Reading Technologies and Tongues Governments from around the world have been using mind reading technologies that can read your mind. They use the same technologies God would use to talk to you. A technique is called Remote Neural Monitoring (RNM). They use satellites shot to space by Space X founder Elon Musk, The Russian Federation, The Federal Government and NASA. Comparable to a cellular satellite. It’s a high bandwidth signal that listens to your brains wavelength and reads your conscience. Many define it as telekinesis, telepathy or tongues. They have had this technology for years now. Not making a patent to stay ahead of our civilization. They steal ideas, money, murder, blackmail and use it as a tool for war. You sometimes get a headache when a mind reading machine is on you. Suspected users of mind reading technologies are as follow. Vladimir Putin, Donald J. Trump, Xi Jinping, DARPA, NSA, Chancellor Merkel, Ayatollah Khamenei, Justin Trudeau, Benjamin Netanyahu and The Vatican. A Ravenous wolf in sheep’s clothing An alien spirit reborn as a Human being. Alien beings walk the Earth. The Devil an alien. He shot an asteroid (Fire and brimstone) at us to reborn Earth. His plan to tell us humans weren’t deserving. The Devil to bring back his deserving. Aliens. They use our image from the casket and conquer worlds this way. For us to be damned to hell for cremation. Mathew 7:15 Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. Your spirit is in your brain and leaves your body when you die. The atmosphere helps the spirit stay bound to Earth rising towards the North Pole. Your conscience/soul controls the brain and the brain controls the body. To be brought back from flesh and bone means to be reborn as a clone. A spirit can be put in a chip and be reborn. Artificial intelligence can also walk as flesh and blood using a programmed chip similar to a robot. Many in American and Russian governments have been taking spirits for their memories to help them conquer the world. Not disclosing the true purpose of certain military bases on the North Pole.
