Alien contact is never random. The personal connection we have with another race is permanent from before life. We are born with it as a mutual
opportunity. Not all humans who have a connection know that they do, or are contacted on a physical level. Most refuse it.
Absolutely anybody might have alien contact. You can't determine it by their profession, intelligence, personality or mentality. Even severely
retarded people may have alien contact.
Why would anybody expect that when a highly respected professional has alien contact, and he knows about it, he would let it become public knowledge?
As soon as any person lets it out that he has alien contact, his social and professional status and reputation is dropped to the bottom.
Not everyone who works with alien life learns things that need to be shared publicly. Many things we learn are so secret that even we can't know
about them on this level. Sometimes to know, and for others to know, means the ruin of what we work for.

You are right that the people you learn the truth about alien contact from do share attributes. The greatest is bravery.
The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn.
The heresy of one age becomes the orthodoxy of the next.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
If you want to make enemies, try to change something.
Most of the change we think we see in life
Is due to truths being in and out of favor.
Pearl S. Buck:
You can judge your age by the amount of pain you feel when you come in contact with a new idea.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
Marian Wright Edelman:
You really can change the world if you care enough.
Robert F. Kennedy:
Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts
will be written the history of this generation.
