So let me ask you, are you making the argument that these aliens expend time and money to come here using their extremely advanced technology that ends up looking like common place trash can lids or remote controlled toys? You are saying that they either don't mind being seen by us or can`t help it, but don`t want to make public contact? Are you saying that extremely advanced, shy aliens are traveling across trillions of miles repeatedly in widely varying craft with widely varying modes of transportation for widely varying reasons is more probable than some idiot with LEDs on his remote control helicopter?
Critical thinking, it REALLY is an important skill!

Liquidglass and madest, you apparently missed the catch-all of "technology to overcome the power and time requirements". The power and time requirements are based on our current understanding. If they have the technology to overcome those limitations, then they are far more advanced than us. Much like in Liquidglass's example of 15th century peasants comprehending our use of electricity.
So Liquidglass, you are wrong that I am confining my argument.
Madest, you are wrong because it is you who is framing UFOs within our current knowledge. You expect UFOs to be circular disks with lights all around the edges because our current implementations of flying vehicles which have lights around the edges. Read my ENTIRE post again.
