OUR NEW PARADIGM --
My perspective has long been that the time/space continuum is just a segment of reality, which accounts for many reports of phenomena beyond our understanding.
Our 5 senses tend to not register realities beyond this segment -- but even dogs perceive more than we generally do. In our daily-structured life, we tend to live in a box -- which is why "thinking outside the box" results in advances in every sort of knowledge.
The ETs that I know of impart that they can access this box -- "but I wouldn't wanna live there!" ;) ETs don't really "travel" through space. Since they understand different levels of reality, or dimensions, they pretty much "jump" from one level to another -- with time and space being a rather obsolete construct to them.
These ones are simply more evolved than we are and therefore have the knowledge of greater reality that we tend to not have. (And people on earth who say they do have it -- who perceive more than others do -- are regarded as "weird.")
The ETs convey that we are evolving as they have, and we are heading into creating a greater reality on earth. They're very interested in how we're coming along, and wish to help, but not interfere -- the only exception being their causing all-out nuclear war attempts to fizzle. Also, our own human interest itself has reached a point where we can begin to comprehend reality beyond our box, and are becoming more open to it.
Perhaps it now may be they've just gone too far, that the Boston plot will be exposed -- and as Bush Sr. is so infamous for saying -- "Why, if they knew all we'd done, they would chase us down the streets and hang us from the lampposts!" Hmm. Boston, with its history, would be a good venue for exactly that...
