I used to think aliens were just us in the future.

And that our future selves had learned to travel through time. But when we traveled backwards, our current selves didn't recognize our future ones, so we called ourselves aliens. And now it's happening. Virtual worlds are approximating David Brin's Transparent Society. Etcetera etcetera.

If aliens are us in the future, does that mean we're aliens to monkeys? I like the thought of being an alien. I never considered it in regards to time.

Perhaps aliens aren't from another world but are perhaps ourselves from Earth but they've found some sort of time warping technology that would allow themselves to phase in and out of our place in time or our alternate universe.
