Agression is most certainly part of our human nature and withoubt doubt, it has aided our early survival. Perhaps it might be useful to consider that
we are a very immature species. Any other sentient non-human race that we may encounter in the future could be from a civilisation that is thousands
if not millions of years older than ours.
I expect we would be considered as being very primative and treated accordingly. We tend to get paranoid about meeting Aliens who are more powerful
and aggressive than us. However, at this stage in our development it is more likely that we are our own worst enemy.
Our growth exceeds available resources, our economic structure is in a mess, our governments are either corrupt or powerless and though we think of
ourselves as being advanced and intelligent, we still make war and kill each other when we wish to. Sociologically, we are worse than any wild
But we are part of this planet, part of its nature and ecology. That is how we will be viewed. No more or less important than a rock in the desert.
With an equal right to exist.
We may fool ourselves with elevated notions of following the will of an imaginary God. We might view all our technological achievements and think how
clever we are. We no longer use slaves etc. but really, we are very self-centred, greedy, vicious primatives.
Any advanced race coming to our planet may wonder whether to keep it as a Zoo or possibly apply for a permit to convert it into a Theme Park.
