Steven Spielberg Drops Bizarre UFO Conspiracy That Aliens Could Be Time-Traveling Earthlings | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Film director Steven Spielberg knows a thing or two about extraterrestrials - he did, after all, direct the 1982 blockbuster "E.T."

    And he knows a thing or two about UFOs - he did, after all, direct "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."

    For the record, a close encounter of the first kind is when someone sees something unusual in the sky but it leaves no evidence, according to Ohio State University astronomer J. Alan Hynek. "The Second Kind: A UFO leaves some physical trace: burns on the ground or broken branches," WYTV reported. "The Third Kind: You make contact with a U.F.O, you see some alien pilot aboard one or other life form."

    People experience close encounters of the first kind all the time - even more, it seems, nowadays. And Spielberg has some theories about UFOs and extraterrestrials.

    "I've never seen a UFO," Spielberg said in an interview on "The Late Show with Steven Colbert," according to The Sun. "I wish I had! I've never seen anything I can't explain. But I believe certain people who have seen things that they can't explain."

    "I think what has been coming up recently is fascinating, absolutely fascinating. And I think the secrecy that is shrouding all of these sightings and the lack of transparency... I think there is something going on that just needs extraordinary due diligence," the director added.

    Spielberg went on to pontificate about interstellar life.

    "I don't believe we're alone in the universe. I think it's mathematically impossible that we are the only intelligent species in the cosmos. I think that's totally impossible. At the same time, it also seems impossible that someone would visit us from 400 million lightyears from here - except in the movies, of course - unless it figures out some way of jumping the shark, so to speak, and getting here through wormholes," Spielberg said.

    While Spielberg doesn't think any being in the universe has yet mastered faster-than-light travel, the idea that humans could have figured out time travel is more in the realm of possibility. Then he dropped an out-there theory.

    "The most optimistic thing I feel about these things we see in the skies, that the Army and Navy and Air Force are recording on their gun cameras, is that what if they're not from an advanced civilization 300 million lightyears from here?" he said. "What if it's us, 500,000 years in the future, that is coming back to document the second half of the 20th century and into the 21st century because they're anthropologists? And they know something we don't quite know yet that has occurred, and they're trying to track the last hundred years of our history."

    Colbert jumped in to note that according to Spielberg's theory, humanity on Earth would at least have survived 500,000 years.

    "Yes, we survive," he said. "Or at least a certain percentage of us survives that allows future generations to flourish."
