If I were face to face with an alien, I would probably be too caught up in the moment to be afraid. I would probably be far too curious to run.
I've had run-ins with some weird things... most of which turned out to be perfectly explainable... in every instance, my instinct was to run... but
in every instance, in stead I remained calm... and aproached the object of curiosity with exactly that, curiosity. I examined the thing in question
very calmly and assessed exactly what it was.
I assume I would do the same if an animal (or artificial life form) were standing in front of me. Approach it slowly and examine it, attempting to
assess exactly what it is, and what it is capable of / designed for.
I suppose that would make me a prime subject to make first contact. Though all humans are flawed, and I, like others have one form of flaw or another,
so I assume I wouldnt be the best example of a human for an alien to make contact with. Not sure yet what flaws those would be, but I assume I'd have
some detectable ones... especially to what is presumed to be a higher intelligence.
