Nick Pope is a well-known figure in the world of UFO inquiry. From 1991 to 1994, he was tasked with conducting research into reports of unidentified flying objects to determine whether they posed a threat to national security for the British Ministry of Defense.
Pope recently told The Mirror that an advanced alien race only needs to disguise its surveillance technology as everyday animals that no one would notice in order to secretly study human behavior on Earth.
He advised people to stay away from certain birds and insects.
“If aliens want to hack into and control a real entity, or make a drone that is a perfect copy, it would be preferable to utilize something ubiquitous and omnipresent, like a seagull or a housefly,” Nick said.
“Perhaps it’s something you don’t typically notice.
But it would be continually observing us, recording everything, and transferring information about us to a distant planet.
“If aliens are secretly viewing Earth, they’ll be doing so up close and personal — not with distant telescopes, but rather in a way that allows them to capture images and videos in exquisite clarity right in front of our eyes,” he added.
“Any civilisation that can travel here from another solar system must have technology that appears magical to us, and one possibility is that they may be able to implant a living thing with tiny cameras and recording devices and then influence the creature’s thoughts to place it wherever is of interest.”
A similar alternative would be to design drones that resemble animals, birds, or insects. If that seems like science fiction, it isn’t.
People have most likely seen images of insect-like drones used by spy organizations on the internet.
