that there is hope and promise that we're not limited to THIS RAT RACE existence. An existence where actually EXPERIENCING life is almost impossible. Trust me. We weren't put on this planet to see who could make the most money, buy the fastest car, build the most devastating weapon or rise to the highest ranks of power.
I think you are wrong and as long as there are loving and caring people on this planet there is hope.

Whoa Jbondo! You need to calm down there! You got me ALL wrong. You're not looking at the big picture.
I'd like to see you try and quit the RAT RACE that we're all wrapped up in. Tell me you can quit going to work and begin to experience life without suffering and being beaten down because it's not the way "Society" thinks life should be experienced. We ARE FORCED to contribute to polution. We are constantly fed stereotypical images of people because they're different. There are TONS of things that we are bombarded with daily that force us to live a certain way. True we can make certain decisions to do things slightly different....but to vere to far form the way things ARE is all but impossible.
Sure there are plenty of hopeful people out there. But what about the person freezing to death and half starved living in a box in some alley. How much hope does he have? How much hope do the people in third world countrys have who are afraid to say what they feel while walking down the street because it could get them thrown in prison or worse?
I'm glad you're so hopeful and have all the answers. But not everyone on this planet is as fortunate as you.
And where did you get the idea that I'm just sitting here waiting for my STAR BROTHERS to come and save everyone? Where did get that information from? Because that is certainly NOT what I wrote about.
You have COMPLETLY misunderstood EVERYTHING I wrote about. I kinda feel sorry for you because you're looking past the true meaning and fabricating one to suit your views and feelings. Read with an open mind.

I think that in todays MESSED UP world, a world where people have no hope of things improving, a world of violence and wars, a world where WE KNOW we're constantly being used and lied to, that if the truth about the existence of other intelligent life forms visiting our planet were to be revealed to us there would be NO MASS panic. Some anxiety, and SOME panic would surely be expected, but not on the scale that the government insists would be the reason for their withholding.
I think that after the initial release of disclosure, the majority of the earths population would experience a spiritual awakening. A sort of "kick in the pants" that there is hope and promise that we're not limited to THIS RAT RACE existence. An existence where actually EXPERIENCING life is almost impossible. Trust me. We weren't put on this planet to see who could make the most money, buy the fastest car, build the most devastating weapon or rise to the highest ranks of power.
That's why we're not MATURE enough for the EBEs to make their presence outright known to everyone. We're living an almost useless existence. I'm sure we as a species have SOMETHING to offer......It's just gonna take a while to find it in ourselves.
Anyhow.....that's one mans thoughts.
