Look At Me!

I am Number Four

Switching off your brains before reading this book is a must! The logic just does not seem right at some instances. Like they were all under a Loric Charm. Charm? Seriously? I thought this was a sci-fi and not Harry Potter!

But hey I am not here to write a book review!

I am here because one paragraph of the book really caught my attention. (in other words set me thinking)

"Before last night I would have never pondered such a theory. But Henri believes the Mogadorians are plotting to take over Earth, and I must admit, even though the theory in Sam's publication is ludicrous, at its most basic level there might be something there. I know for a fact that the Loric have visited Earth many times over the life of this planet. We watched Earth develop, watched it through the times of growth and abundance when everything moved, and through the times of ice and snow when nothing did. We helped the humans, taught them to make fire, gave them the tools to develop speech and language, which is why our language is so similar to the languages of Earth. And even though we never abducted humans, that doesn't mean it's never been done."

Though this is a fiction, let's assume a few things here.

We, earthlings, have been obsessed with finding another living planet for ages now. (If obsession could bring forth life, I am sure Mars would have had a few living organisms by now!)

But assume that we did find life on mars, then what would we do?
We will monitor every tiny detail, every single nanosecond of the day, while trying to be as discreet as possible.
We will watch the planet evolve. We would abduct a few Martians as samples to study them further.
Supposing the martians begin to die during cold seasons, we will ensure that the fire, we so confidently claim to have discovered ourselves, makes its way to Mars.
We would pass all kinds of information to them to help them. Fire, clothing, cooking, language, vaccines for plagues, maybe teach them to invent the wheel, science, electricity, religion. ( All while ensuring to keep ourselves discreet. Tricking them into believing they discovered all of it themselves -creating Einstein, Newton, Edison, Leonardo, Buddha. ). We would even alter their studies and inventions to an extent that make them believe that the earth does not even exist.

Finally Martians evolve to intelligent beings and start thinking for themselves. Which is when they spectacularly destroy all the resources of planet Mars thereby inventing global warming, wars, etc.
And then they start looking for life on another planet in our universe.
All this while we earthlings have cleverly stayed out of their vision.

So assuming we do all this if we find life on Mars. (of which I am definitely sure), would there not be a possibility that someone did all this to us when they found life on earth? helped us earthlings through? dropped the apple on Newton's head...helped Thomas invent the bulb...forced Edward to create the vaccine for small pox...
someone, somewhere, out there who have cleverly stayed out of sight, but is constantly watching/monitoring earth?

Well, all I can say is "I hope they don't decide to make me the sample!"
