This is my understanding from my personal experience.
Alien: Any being or thing in a place or referred to from a place that did not physically originate in that place.
Alien Life: What all other life from all other places in the known Universes is to each other.
We call the races of people that visit Earth "aliens" but all races/worlds of people are unique and alien to each other, as different from each
other as any of them are from us. We are aliens too. All races also share some characteristics common to all. We all look like people- have a people
shape, but some have other, additional shapes as well.
Almost all other races are much further advanced and evolved than we are. We are intelligent now, but not advanced yet. We are relatively new and
young, isolated from other life, and making some horrible mistakes threatening the survival of our race and world.
All the races that visit Earth are our neighbors in space, and far in advance of us. They visit each other's worlds, work together, share
information, knowledge, abilities and technologies, which helps maintain peace between them and ensure survival of all. For a race to progress from
primitive to advanced it needs peace. Peace is not utopia. Peace means solving problems and conflicts for the greatest benefit possible to all
Maintaining peace is like working together to win a relay race. Nobody is perfect, but working together for the same goals moves everybody ahead as
safely and unimpeded as possible. Any intelligent race that is not allied with its neighbors is left behind while others excel. A race that cannot
even work together with itself yet certainly cannot work with a group of races no matter how "intelligent" they are.
Every world of intelligent life has an organization of its visiting life and ours was recently completed. But not just anybody of a race travels to
other worlds. The individual people that travel space are 'the' professionals of their races, who set up in crews to work between our worlds.
Every race has its difficulties initially accepting other life, but we humans on Earth are among the most difficult for the other races to with.
