What I disagree with here is them waiting. I dont think they are for a variety of reasons. I think we keep thinking they are wanting/waiting/needing
to talk or connect with us. I dont think they do or are.
I think being advanced as I can only surmise they'd have to be...they have no interest in us, what we do. After all. We dont get on our hands and
knees and scream down at ant hills to "get ready we are here to help you", do we?
Ya, but like others have said, sometimes we do study ants or even watch them for fun. Sometimes we pass by em or step on em.
The fact we apparently aren't aware of any aliens watching us or studying us (or stepping on us) in the same way as we do ants or other 'lesser'
creatures means either they're really good at hiding (and maybe want to stay hidden) or they're not there or we just plain haven't met them yet.
Think about this: If they're not randomly stepping on us and mindlessly observing us in the same way we do ants, AND assuming they're aware of us,
this means they may not categorize us as lowly as we categorize ants.
I wonder if it's possible the closest thing we'll ever have to equal "aliens" are the different races? And what if the reality of aliens out there
resembles more the relationship between us and Earth animals?
If intelligent ET's are out htere, what're the odds they'll be nearly equal to us on an intelligence basis? I like to think intelligence just goes up
and up and so there could be wide gaps between us and ET, but it may be they don't get much more intelligent than us. Does anyone know?
And what if ET's speed hte overall evolution of 'lesser' species so they're on a more equal level? Or what if natural evolution is outlawed on the
basis it facilitates unnecessary violence and suffering? Earth could be an outlaw planet or maybe one of hte few planets where natural evolution takes
place. And how is this hard to imagine? I can see it happening. Natural evolution could be deemed foolish or even criminal, if the ET's control their
genetics, as well as controlling almost every facet of their home planet. We already see examples of this in everyday life. We routinely use
technology to save those who would otherwise die or suffer at the hands of nature.
