Yep! At least that’s what it seemed like. The Global Competitiveness Forum, or GCF for short, is being held in Saudi Arabia right now and just a handful of the high profile guests include former US president Bill Clinton, Former Prime Minister Tony Blair, Google executives, Disney executives, Boeing executives and about 1,000 other heavy hitters, all gathered together to discuss the betterment of global societies, finances and technology among other things.
The subject of UFO’s was brought to the table to launch a discussion of thinking bigger and broader. The noted ufologist Stanton Friedman opened his panel with a simple statement of three words: UFO’s are real! The discussion continued on with his proclamation that extraterrestrials exist, UFO’s are real and its time for businesses to start thinking about how contact with extraterrestrials could change their business model and begin implementing changes now. Before he left, he told AOL News that even if UFO’s didn’t exist and extraterrestrials weren’t real, thinking as though they are and pretending they’ve already made contact can help businesses to begin to think on much larger scales and reaching for the seemingly impossible.
Friedman was not alone, however, as others discussed the advancements of technology as they follow science fiction, creating somewhat of a self fulfilling prophecy for mankind as we strive to achieve more and many have such as ‘flip’ cell phones, which were originally designed after communicators used in the Star Trek series, and South Korea’s recent choice to use robots instead of humans to teach English to students!
