Ridley Scott Says Aliens Exist and Don’t Mess With Them

Google “alien” and the entry at the top of the list is not Greys or Reptilians or people from a country that’s not yours – it’s a movie. Not just any movie … the mother of all sci-fi-horror movies – Alien, starring Sigourney Weaver and directed by the father of the genre – Ridley Scott. Sir Ridley went on to direct the equally-classic Blade Runner as well as Prometheus and The Martian … and some non-sci-fi monsters like Thelma & Louise, Gladiator and Hannibal. And don’t forget the dystopian “1984” commercial for Apple. Now he’s back to what he does best – aliens! Scott is making the rounds promoting his latest directorial accomplishment and return to where it all began – Alien: Covenant.

Sir Ridley scott

But you Ridley Scott fans already knew all of this. What you may not have known – but possibly suspected – is that Sir Ridley believes in aliens.

I believe in superior beings. I think it is certainly likely. An expert I was talking to at NASA said to me ‘have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?’ That’s ridiculous.

What exactly does Scott mean by ‘superior beings’?

The experts have now put a number on it having assessed what is out there. They say that there are between 100 and 200 entities that could be having a similar evolution to us right now. So when you see a big thing in the sky, run for it.

Run for it? If they have a ‘similar evolution’ to our own, why should we be afraid, Sir Ridley?

They are a lot smarter than we are. If you are stupid enough to challenge them you will be taken out in three seconds.

NOW he tells us!

Should we be watching everyone else’s stomach … or our own? Scott doesn’t say, nor does he offer any comparisons between real aliens and the fictional (hopefully) Xenomorphs in Alien: Covenant, the second prequel to Alien that he’s directed. It continues where Prometheus, the first prequel, leaves off.

OK, so we already knew that Ridley Scott makes great Alien movies. Now we know that it’s probably because he believes in aliens and thinks they‘re out to get us. That explains Sir Ridley, but why do WE like them so much?

But the film was very successful because people are perverse.

Yep.

    What’s odd is that more people don’t realize that the night sky is probably home to many superior creatures. People live in pschological illusions. We box our daily loves into commutes, work, school, go home and do it again…most people don’t embrace ‘reality’ they embrace human constructs to survive ‘reality’…which works, but reality and aliens and supernovas and life after death, and time itself are not things that we spend much time on because they don’t usually impact our human world. But when they do and reality punches a hole through our imaginary lifestyle, then people get unnerved because their control is gone, they are at the mercy of something stronger than themselves and our human illusion. It’s funny that those that realize the truth are seen as weird or eccentric when it’s just forward logical thinking…you don’t really have as much control as you think. There are probably superior aliens or intelligences to other aliens…they too probabaly saw their imaginary contol disappear, they too also thought their planet and way of living was the superior way. Then something greater happened and they had to grow up…I’m sure we will too. We wont be someone’s dinner but we will have a bite taken out of our sheltered way of thinking.

    I don’t get why people assume that if aliens exist and have managed to reach a level of technology that allows them to contact us, then that must mean they are “superior” to us. Our technology has advanced significantly in the last few hundred years, but our intelligence hasn’t – we’re just as smart (or as dumb) as we were 100,000 years ago. You see, the great thing about science and technology is that it allows you, as Newton said, to stand on the shoulders of giants. You don’t have to be able to be clever enough to come up with it all yourself, you just have to be clever enough to build on what the previous person has done. It’s entirely possible for aliens to have superior technology but be less intelligent, have a simpler culture and even have worse morals – though to be fair that last one is a bit of a stretch.
