You've got that right. Scientists will be the last ones to acknowledge what's happening. And the last ones to explain it. They need "rigorous testing and scientific method" followed by "peer-reviewed publications" to see what's right in front of them. Creativity and thinking outside of the box isn't their forte. They created the box and are holding onto it for dear life.
Looks like we'll have to do the meet-and-greet ourselves, eh?
