In 2013, computer professional and former CIA employee Edward Snowden made headlines after leaking classified information from the U.S. National Security Agency. He revealed how the government actually monitors and uses people’s personal data.
He was eventually charged for Espionage Act violation and government property theft but shortly thereafter, he flew to Russia and continues to live in the country to this day in an undisclosed location.
Recently, the whistleblower has attracted a lot of media attention anew with another claim – aliens may be trying to contact Earth right now.
On a podcast guesting, Edward Snowden spoke about the possibilities of extraterrestrial communications.
As a guest for Neil deGrasse Tyson’s StarTalk podcast, Snowden boldly proclaimed that encryption is making it difficult to receive clear extraterrestrial communication.
“If you look at encrypted communication, if they are properly encrypted, there is no real way to tell that they are encrypted. You can’t distinguish a properly encrypted communication from random behavior.”
Snowden pointed out that encryption is making such communications “indistinguishable.”
He also said:
“If you have an alien civilization trying to listen for other civilizations, or our civilization trying to listen for aliens, there’s only one small period in the development of their society when all of their communication will be sent via the most primitive and most unprotected means.
So when we think about everything that we’re hearing through our satellites or everything that they’re hearing from our civilization (if there are indeed aliens out there), all of their communications are encrypted by default. So what we are hearing, that’s actually an alien television show or a phone call [which] is indistinguishable to us from cosmic microwave background radiation.”
We may be totally oblivious about it but aliens may already be contacting us.
If his theories are true, it is indeed possible that aliens have been contacting us and we’re not even remotely aware about it.

This Child Lies Naked and Helpless on a Stairway Yet No One Bothers to Help
My heart just broke for this child. Is this how indifferent and uncaring we’ve become?
Things like this make me lose my faith in humanity.
Children are God's precious gifts to us and they should be loved, taken cared of, and taught well. They should be given a nurturing and caring home, and supportive parents who will be there for them every step of the way. They should not be left lying in the streets naked, hungry, alone, and forced to fend for themselves. Not like this series of pitiful photos of a child in Manila, taken by a concerned Facebook user.
Mysterious Beach Formations Baffle Scientists
These are stunningly beautiful formations…
For years, scientists were unable to explain how beach cusps are formed.
These beautiful yet mysterious regularly spaced, crescentic formations usually appear during or after storms. While those who believe in extra-terrestrial life may attribute these beautiful shoreline formations to aliens, there are two existing theories on how they are formed.
The ‘standing edge’ theory claims that the interaction between the normal waves approaching the shore and the edge waves gives rise to regularly-spaced points of different wave intensity. Meanwhile, the self-organisation theory explains that beach cusps are products of interactions among wave, current, as well as sand over time that result to feedback loops....
