The "humanizing" of whatever the "phenomena" is may not be the best route to gain a better understanding of it. By applying / imprinting our knowledge and understanding of ourselves onto something that is far removed from ourselves, will result in little knowledge in return and a fruitless endeavor.
If you were to imagine an existence without love,light,dark or fear, it would be "impossible" as we already know/are taught these things and cannot technically unlearn them.
Assuming that if we ever did come across another intelligence, that it would have gone through the identical evolution's / revolutions of war, peace, love and evolution and everything else makes no sense.
We don't know the unknown, but its a part of the human condition to wonder......but we cannot profess that we truly know simply because we don't and its bloody annoying lol

Roswell and RFI being two very obvious cases that keep cropping up repeatedly.
It would seem that the more expansive the case get, the further from the original event it really gets.
I think your RFI thread is a prime example of how much "fluff" can adhere to a case over time.
But in many cases it seems to me that something strange really happened, and then the showpeople can move in.
Ufology is IMO a religion/illness; there are preachers, teachers, sufferers and truth seekers.
"I received a call from him very very recently, actually it was this week, and he said you know what Lue, it’s funny because a conversation I had to have with you just a year and a half ago, in a vault within a SCIF in a TSSCI facility that’s SAP cleared and we had to whisper to have that conversation, I can now have this conversation in the open halls of the Pentagon.”
