I think it’s absolutely ludicrous to believe that “we” are the only ones “here”. Mankind is so voracious in its belief that our species is
superior over all. Why is it so hard to think there are other beings beyond our own existence? Maybe the tomfoolery of NASA, the government and the
like coupled with Hollywood have closed our minds to the very possibility that there are other species / beings existing on other planets - and maybe
even on our own.
I believe in God. I am not so naive to think that He would have created only our particular race, when we are literally surrounded by a myriad of
other planets that can’t possibly be uninhabited. Why would He create only one species? To what end? For what purpose? Why wouldn’t He create
other species as well? What about beyond our own solar system? That is such a vast space to think that absolutely nothing exists beyond our own
system, let alone right in our own backyard.
It is quite possible that we, as a species, cannot handle nor fathom what lies just beyond our narrow sight. That we have been so “conditioned”,
to quote Mr. Lear, that the mere thought of a species more intelligent and advanced than ourselves is literally a frightening concept – should that
be “proven” true, that information would literally shake mankind’s very foundation and structural belief system; which may be the reason we are
not told the truth – on anything - let alone other species beyond our own existence.
I will admit that to actually see another being would be frightening because, after all, we have all been “conditioned” to think that any other
superior species whom we may come in contact with only wants to hurt us or experiment on us. I don’t believe that they would all be like that. If
you think about it from another perspective, we are a pretty frightening species in amongst ourselves as well. I’m sure we have done our share of
experimentation – we’ve done it on our own species. If there was any hostility towards our species, we may have brought that on ourselves.
When Mr. Lear mentioned the Soul Collector, I didn't much like that thought because I had been taught that all souls sit in judgement and then either
go to Heaven or Hell. Being taught that let you know the consequences you have to face when you die. The way Sleeper described the Collector, made
me think of the scene in Ghost where when the bad guy was killed, the "shadows" came "alive" and took him away. The Collector(s) may not be like
that, but it was a creepy though just the same.
