Here's one take...I've seen the theory out there that Grays are human descendants from the future who went so overboard with their sci-tech that
they lost some very important capacity that we have, maybe empathy or tenderness or natural reproduction. As far as I recall, all the suggestions were
love or sex related things, really fundamental qualities of humanity. Anyhow, the idea is maybe we (many) of us fear them because we can sense or note
that lack in them.
What brings me to this site is that I just read an article about how Ray Kurzweil and some other futurists believe that humans are likely to be more
non-biological than biological by 2030, passing a technological singularity, and that they're concerned that it be done right (though they seem far
more pleased about the idea than I am). That triggered the thought, "Oh, no, this sounds like that story about the Grays - I hope to God they don't
turn us into Grays with that gung ho technology-can-fix everything mindset." Just a head's-up: I wouldn't be among the first to get any new
neural-implant-wired-to-a-space-age-biosuit. We are what we are for a reason, and we ought to think twice before giving that up.
