Unfortunately they're a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. They hit the wall that is the 'great filter', we're all that's left now sorry.
Or maybe, just maybe we're the first life in the Universe, and there aren't any Aliens out there yet until we go put them out there.
But yeah, I hope if Aliens are out there they stay away for their own sake, we humans have no qualms about killing and screwing over each other, I can
only imagine what we'd do to something 'foreign'.
Those alien invasion movies where the aliens kill us all and take our resources and women after all are based on nothing but human behaviour as that
is all humans know.
We expect Aliens to be like that, because that is how our species would behave. Think Avatar is the only movie to show it that way.
Maybe Aliens don't have civil wars any way, because maybe they're not stupid and don't fight over imaginary lines in the sand and make believe sky
fairies. Maybe their concepts of ownership and property are..... well Alien.
Hell I'm a human myself, and even I want to get away from us as 99% of humans are still cavemen, just they have shinier toys now thanks to the 1% of
us that have actually evolved.
Given the right circumstances most humans would beat your head in with a iPad just to steal your shoes.
What sane intelligent species would want to go near that?
If Aliens have studied us for a long time and still come visit, I'm just going to have to assume they're as insane as, if not more so a species than
But yeah, who knows? maybe Earth is an anomaly and apart from us the Universe is all rocks, gases and stuff and nothing else?
It is kind of sad to think if we could travel 200 million light years to another planet, TPTB wouldn't do it for science and humanity, they would be
doing it just to line their pockets with more shiny rocks and black goo.
Seriously it's the only reason we've not really gone beyond the moon (if we even went to begin with) because the financial motivation aint there for
the people who control that stuff.
Maybe there are aliens out there and like us, their 'leaders' are just as selfish, greedy and stupid and they'll never leave their planet either for
the same reason.
Maybe they too have something like ATS, and Facebook etc. and the majority of them would rather talk about their Trump's/Hillary's, the latest alien
cat videos and complain about how bad every thing is, instead of ways to advance and fix their societies problems and come together as a species.
Maybe their Alien Jesus has told them they will all go to Alien hell if they try?
I genuinely wish I knew one way or the other.
