And I mean it actually.
I see this on many threads in the UFO forums..."I hope they're friendly".
Ever since I can remember it has always been said by someone that if/when we finally make contact with another World we hope they are friendly. What a
piece of BS.
There are only two reasons for that hope and that is self preservation and pure greed. NOT a shaking of hands, exchange of ideas, knowledge,
technology as many would like to believe. NOT a wonderful glowing, warm and fuzzy feeling of oneness with the Universe. It's simple fear and greed.
Fear that we are not advanced enough to repel an attack and that we will be conquered or destroyed.
And friendly? Where do we even get this from? Let's face it...WE are not friendly and are not remotely close to an understanding of the concept.
The greed? If we came across a lesser advanced civilization it would only be a matter of time before our leaders & corporations felt it their right to
conquer and control. To move in and take whatever resources they decided to take. To experiment on our new found friends to see what makes them tick.
Only a matter of time before they started to play with their DNA to see what can be created, crossed or manipulated.
And the people? We would eventually come to support those mad men because we would get sold a false flag or "it's us or them." We would again be
dieing by the millions for their gain. "Grab yer guns folks...Let's get 'em!"
It's also not beyond the realm of possibilities that slave labor came into play. We allow it on our own planet as we are aware of it yet fail to stop
it. We also don't stand against our leaders and corporations in a way that is even remotely effective when it comes to the raping of our own planet so
what makes anyone think that we would do anything but stand by and watch it happen to a lesser advanced civilization on another planet if we were told
that it was absolutely necessary?
I believe that we as a species are not ready to meet another until we can get our own house in order. And that day my friends, is a long way off. In
fact, I see the concept of World peace as impossible unless one of two events happen.
1. We have our 3rd World War (inevitable in our lifetime IMO) and somehow, some way we come out of it with the utmost humility, fear and realization
that we MUST have peace at all cost. This is most likely the lesser possibility of the 2 and quite simply a fantasy scenario as we never learn. Mad
men will always rise.
2. WE are the ones conquered and are somehow forced to either come together for our own survival or we accept our new identity as a conquered planet
and whatever may result from that. But that still does not give us World peace does it?
And an invading species? Are THEY friendly? Are they of a warrior species or have they somehow evolved as a peaceful being within their DNA? Is it
even possible? If we look at our planet as a possible guideline, probably not. So do we really want to have enemies on our own planet as well from
I cringe every time I hear those words "I hope they're friendly" because if they are they won't be for very long after meeting us. And if a species
out there is truly friendly then they should just stay hidden until we get our own SH## together.
I know, different type of rant but I was going through a few threads in the UFO forum and that phrase keeps coming up. I just don't get it.
IMO, best scenario? An intelligent and highly advanced species that makes us look like cave dwellers who can help us come up with a way to gain a
peace that redefines us. So much more advanced that we dare not try to fight but rather learn. So far away that our mediocre technology can't possibly
travel there nor even know of their location.
And if they are here visiting only to come under attack from some faction or Govt...do us the favor of simply eliminating the threat with blessing
and support from the 99%.
Science Fiction? Probably. But one can hope right?
