I was considering what it might take to actually encounter ET at scale after watching a documentary and doing research for a book I’m contemplating
writing. Those thoughts led me to this post....
I’m starting to lend some credence to the concept that the reason we don’t have ET contact is a lack of unity amongst the human race. And
that’s no hippy-dippy-bologna.
Curious what you think about my thought process here...
First, for the purpose of this post, let’s operate under the assumption that life exists beyond the earth and that our social media obsessed,
warring, power-grabbing, gossiping, polarizing and antagonistic ways aren’t the pinnacle of life in the entirety of the universe (when I put it that
way, I think, “fml - I hope we’re not the pinnacle because we kind of suck”).
With that said... My mind goes to considering that the ET species who make first full-scale contact with us humans obtained the ability to travel
amongst the stars one of two ways:
Becoming the Dominant Species or Race by Force:
1. other species would have the same concept of a “food chain” that we have.
2. The general laws of economics would govern their world like it does ours until technology changed those laws.
3. This leads to tribes/territories/country’s/general sovereignty.
4. Tied to Econ, the notion of scarcity would produce conflict.
5. Conflict would result in war(s).
6. Warring would continue until a clear winner is declared.
7. To the rich go the spoils.
8. Tech/resources are consolidated
9. Resources can be reallocated away from military conflict.
10. To the stars they go.
These would be the bad EBEs - they choose not to make contact at scale because humans are plentiful, resourceful, quick on the trigger and won’t go
quietly (plus the ETs have long supply lines). They want to conquer and realize we’re actually a pretty difficult pest to eradicate. They are
good at killing populations but it’s going to be fairly hard to take us out and not blow up the planet. So they don’t attack - but they aren’t
nice and won’t announce themselves because that would unify us and harm their ability to be able to divide and conquer us.
Becoming a Dominant Species Through Unity:
These are the good EBEs. At some point they figured out that kicking each other in the proverbial/territorial/etc. balls isn’t really doing much
good for anyone since they’re doing it over racial differences/nationality/culture/etc. So their sequence ebbed and flowed more like this:
1. Species has a “food chain” much like ours.
2. Human equivalents rise to the top.
3. Tribalism/competitive spirit kicks in, borders are drawn.
4. Econ kicks in and scarcity proves to be a thing.
5. War breaks out.
6. Then more wars break out.
7. Some prominent nations (tribes) form and reach a stalemate due to mutually assured destruction.
8. Playing the military D measuring contest at this scale is expensive.
9. Realize we can all come together when we accept we’re all human, stop fighting and embrace each other.
10. Money that was used for war is now used for things like collaborative space exploration.
11. Conflict is ended, peace wins the day and we work to expand our race and push to the stars.
12. We can travel amongst the stars
These good EBEs wouldn’t touch us with a 10 ft pole because we aren’t even close to where they are societally and we’re dangerous - for the same
reasons the “bad” EBEs stay away. These good EBEs observe us and want to help us because they don’t have the problems we do and if the “bad
EBEs” win, that’s one more problem they’ll have to deal with in the future.
The primary difference between “good” and “bad” here is how they got here as a race - which will dictate their intentions. The good ones
probability shoot down Nukes and the bad ones probably attempt to create the NWO/ISIS/God to divide us/etc. to fragment us, create alliances and
destroy us from the inside out. But, when the good ones see us they look to move us in a different direction and avoid the problems we could have had
- like aiding in the massive advancements in tech since WW2 and the nukes were dropped - which interconnected us more.
Why do the good ones do this?
Tech solves all of it - we get beyond economics and division which lets the “good EBEs” come to us and share their knowledge - cubically advancing
humans at-large and at the same time stopping another hostile threat (like the “bad EBEs”) from expanding and threatening their peace and costing
So, unity - which we preach the virtues of but never actually do - actually invites ET contact and a better future for the human race. Without unity -
there’s no disclosure.
Perhaps Gene Roddenberry got it right!
