all the answers so far [ that i could read coherently ] seem to depend on various assumptions and prejudgements - that were formed independantly of the actual information given ie " what would you do if approached by an alien " - no other data was given to allow you to make any informed judgment - so everyone that answered merely exposed their prejudices and fantasies .

to turn the question around :

let me ask .

" what would you do if you were approached by a policeman ?"

there is not a single " cookie cutter " response that is aprropriate to all encounters

so why are people waffling on , from ignorance ?

I'm in a debate of whether I convince or kill. I suppose if I were approached, I would try to convince them of coming public. If they didn't, well, cooperate with them then attempt to kill one so as I could drag the body to the nearest police/fire station.

Well I guess it depends on the alien and at what time it decides to approach me. If it's when I'm sleeping, then I would not appreciate that at all and I would probably attack it. If it's during usual business hours than I would ask it to join me for a cup of coffee.

It entirely depends on the situatuion, as laiguana put it. Also depends on whether I felt the alien was hostile or not. With people it would be very easy to percieve (through facial expressions and/or body "language") whether they are friendly or hostile. With aliens, it would probably be more difficult, as we don't have anything for comparison to judge by.

What would I do? I have no idea to be honest. Many assumption of control / choice have been made. Personally, I believe any contact (be it initial) would be under their control ie we'd be passengers in the experience.
Also, I truly believe I wouldn't initally be able to comprehend what I am experiencing so I would probably go into a primal self preservation mode - not necissarily aggresive or defensive but more observant heightened state of awareness which will effect any normal day rational I may exercise.

So as much as I would like to think 'whoa.... cool man' I'm tipping, given I am conscious and able bodied and can exert some (percieved) control of the situation, I will be somewhat timid and possibly overwhelmed.

More so, imagine you learned somehing during the encounter that made going back to real world irrelevant or concerns you have today absolutely meaningless.
Again, I really can't say.

Basically you will experience something you have never experienced before ie draw any similarity to - completely foreign - out there like pluto.. know what I mean.

hey groovey people,

hmmm, cool question my good fellows


If i was confronted by an alien i guess i would introduce myself and then poor it a beer or a whisky , from there i imagine we would sit back in my backyard and talk about the universe while toking a cigar or two, i would really be wishing to go for a cruise with it in its vehicle of transport, it would be cool to fly around the universe to places where i could observe the higher inteligence beings and there technology and the lower intelligence beings ( such as in the whitehouse ) anyhoo i guess as far as communication goes i have read alot about people claiming that these beings are telepathic and communicate through means of esp , so therefore i spose we would get talking through that sort of mode,

I would also try to find out what it has observed on earth and why they visit us and do some of the things they do , i would also ask sort of true or false questions to find out what is true like cattle mutilations and things along the lines of crop circles and what is false,

It would be fascinating i think to learn about there species aswell such as what they do on the planet of origin and what else is trully out there in the universe probably after that we could go into my music room and have a Jam , that would be so groovey .
I would like to ask it questions such as "Do u know about a place in the nevada desert called Area51,Nellis airforce base , Dream land? " and i would most definetly try to find out if they actually do have any sort of alliance with members of earth .
I wonder if they would know our future, the future of earth for better or worse and i think knowing what we could do to change it would be good too.

I dont know really of the top of my head but tbh i would just be so intrigued and curiouse about its species and technology aswell as knowledge of its own planet and ours that if i properly typed it all up i would take up alot of space in this thread

None the less it would be most fascinating ,

Omega

PS, If it was hostile i would try to find out why and if that didnt work i would poor it a drink or run the hell away , Just of the top of my head , Also i dun think you could stop something with advanced mental powers with a knife it would probably make you hack your own feet off ....Havent you seen children of the damned??



PPS, some undeniable proof of the visit would be good too , that and a lightsaber,

Later and be cool ,

So you would offer it poisons and then hope it was nice to you?


I'm not going to put on any form of bravado with my answer, unlike 99% of the people who have posted here. My stomach would be churning and to be honest so would my emotions. I'd be a huge mixture of scared/exhilarated/curious and probably pass out/lose control of my bodily functions.

If - and its a big if - I didn't do that, I would sit down and just take it all in, be as non threatening as possible and hope I came to no harm, if after a period of a few minutes I wasn't being dissected as part of cosmobiology 101 then I'd try and communicate.

If you think about it though, it would probably akin to a lab rat trying to communicate with a scientist.

When i was approched by a grey, I just sat there paralysed and kinda melted all my terror into its big eyes. i wanted to scream but i felt i was being contained.

if i see one again i would be forward with it and say i have been waiting for you then try to connect on a higher level. and if hostile then i am no longer afraid of them. i never heard of anyone being punched by a grey.... lol

I would offer him a cup of tea along with some crumpets lightly buttered, as they are very skinny. and then ask for the key to his vehicle.

I don't trust creatures that need to sneak around me. Did you see the segament in the Mexican UFO conference where the grey -tall one too-is caught on camera in the background sneaking around some farmers,who were responding to a cattle disturbance. Not cool if it real.

If it's a grey and he's approaching me then sorry little dude, but you're about to get you're head punted all the way back to your parked/hovering whatever ship. Wonder what happens when you grab one by it's head dig your thumbs into it's eye sockets for better grip and hurl it's 40 lb frame 15 feet through the air. I'm mean does the head tear off entirely or do they have sinues and muscles protecting their necks that are harder to tear than they are to pronounce?

I'm trying to protect myself. They never ask for permission before coring out the rectums of our cattle and abducting and terrifying our population. They got something to hide and it's their intentions. They don't respect us just like we unfortunantly don't respect less evolved lifeforms. However, just cause we are as bad doesn't mean we can act in out natural given rights of selfdefense. Nobody gets angry at the Lion when it charges the poacher who just shot him in the hiny and attempts to tear the mans cervical vertabre out.

It affects me that a great deal of answers in this thread has been far from...civilized.
Some posters tell us they would try to kill or harm the extraterrestrial and send it over to the CIA or the police.
It surprises me that people don't realize that the main reason why they haven't revealed themselves to us might be because of this attitude.
The aggressive attitude which many of you got is unnecessary.
You feel you need to "protect" yourselves from something you don't know anything about but I doubt you will be able to defend yourself if they really are hostile which I highly doubt.
We are not ants to them, but as long as many of us can't keep their aggressive and pathetic thoughts away we will never share a life side by side with them.

You're in an immature state of mind and since there are so many that share that attitude among us, the beings won't ever reveal themselves to us under any circumstance.
You are slowing down the very progress many of us sought after. A real shame...

They slow down the process by being sneaky and untrustworthy. They want what they want and don't really show any concern for our well being. We could just be the local population of bees that the beekeeper has to avoid to keep harvesting the honey. At least that what their behavior leads us to believe.

Maybe if they did something overtly friendly then we would trust a group of peoples who dart from shadow to shadow trying to treat us like lab animals.

No body is going to civilize a group of less evolved creatures by treating them uncivily. Take a guy from the jungle who is feral from our perspective and lock him in a cage, stalk him and terrify him, abduct against the will of and treat like a lesser creature and thats what you are going to get. Conversly feed the creature, make overt friendly gestures, and try to treat it with dignity, and it will probably be domesticated and able to interact directly and on equal terms with you.

Any intelligent race of creatures will know this and act this way if that is their intentions. Even we know that you don't poke the dog with a stick and chain it down if you are trying to make it friendly. They know that too, and just don't care. The think we are below them obviously, and therefore they can't be trusted.

Treat us like space brothers and humans would embrace you. Act like sneaky goblins and you'll get treated like one.

Synergy, you can't say that with certainty can you - there maybe other reasons. Don't pass it off as fact when you can't back it up.

It would depend on the context I would suppose.

In the middle of the High Street in front of others would be different to the paranoia of meeting ET in the Highlands, away from civilisation after they had stopped the car and walked up to me with a knife and fork licking their lips.


You must wonder how people would deal with it. I mean most people seem to have problems dealing with "Aliens" from other Human cultures.

I find it amusing that people sit there in the pub talking enthusiastically about life on other worlds and meeting ET and then complain about communication problems and cultural differences with the Human that owns the corner shop or dishes out parking tickets.

As a race we have problems communicating with each other, why even here on ATS with English (or variances of it) as the common language there is mis-communication.

Even with a common language, local dialects make understanding difficult and the other elements like body language dont help.

Ok I am assuming we would communicate by the medium of language. But how else would we get dialogue interchange? Lights? Crop circles? Telepathy? Mathematics?

Would we be able to communicate at all?

Do we try to avoid contact until we have a means of communicating that does not let translation errors occur (some hope) and know what they are really up to (how would we know until we communicate? Observe their actions?).

Personally I believe that if they exist and are as advanced as supposed, it is out of our hands...they will do what they want. I think the question isn't what would we do but what would they do...

there you go , projecting your prenotions of what a given action means onto a hypothetical alien you just met .

Assuming you mean my theory about why the extraterrestrials hasn't revealed themselves.
There could be many explainations and I'm not arrogant or ignorant enough to deny something I don't know anything about.
A usual explaination why they haven't revealed themselves might be because of our nature, the state of mind we're "trapped" in right now. And perhaps that's incorrect.
Perhaps those "grays" are keeping themselves unknown to the majority because other reasons than the one I'm talking about.
There are however other reasons as well for example a widely known explaination why the "Nordics" are "hiding" may be because they feel we're not ready as a species.
Violence, racism and hatred is a part of our existence, and no smal part. I think they are waiting for us to get mature.
Everything is in our hands, if we change our lifestyles then perhaps something many of us wish for will take place.
There are many different theories and explainations and the one I talk about might differ from your point of view and you are welcome to question it.

No proof can be given by me to you to convince you that I'm right. I don't know if I'm right, so why would I want to convince you.
I have never had any experiences associated to extraterrestrials but I happen to have an open mind which I've had since I was 7 years old.
And the proof that already exist is being disregarded by the close minded and the narrow-minded people, so nothing is of value to those who just don't want to think outside their square.

A close relative of mine got experience with things he is so terrified to even talk about associated to extraterrestrials. Quite interesting experiences, but it's hard to get anything out of him. He always wants to change subject when I remind him of "that day".

Hey synergy what have you been able to get your family member to talk about. The story would be apreciated by us fellow ATS'rs.

Are you so certain they would? And if I were to reveal this experience how does that make this matter more clear to us.
It's an ordinary abduction "story" and one not so easily explainable story about something that happened to him as an adult.
I don't want to steal the possible attention from this really interesting thread so I will not write it here.
