Some observations in regards to the Blossom Goodchild hoax post.

(Note: The term EBE means extraterrestrial biological entity)

It seems to me that a large amount of people are waiting for some group of friendly EBEs' to come to Earth with their superior knowledge and technology and that they will free us from the current monetary system, save the environment, and solve the energy crisis (or something along these lines).

I'll tell you what bothers me about this:

A) We can do all of these things ourselves. We can free ourselves from those who would place us in bonds, we can stop ruining the environment, we can all live exponentially better than the way that we are living, etc.

B) Even if the EBE's do come to Earth and do these things for us, nothing will have been accomplished. We still need to master inner peace before there is ever going to be outer peace. Even if we have infinite energy etc. there will still be issues that will divide us and cause violence. We will have not learned our lesson. The EBEs will have caught us a fish but not taught us how to fish.

The EBE's cannot free us from our animal like behavior. This is a choice that we must make ourselves. We should focus less on being saved by someone or something and focus instead on perfecting and mastering our inner worlds first (our minds). Once a certain percentage of people have reached this plane of consciousness I believe then it is possible to have the most important thing humanity can have, external and internal world peace.

It is time for our species to stop acting like a child waiting for its parents to pick up their messy room.


Let humanity join the intergalactic community, if it does indeed exist. Let humanity work towards sustainability and co-operation so future generations can be allowed to live.

Init though! Am I allowed to post one line? If not I will babble on for two lines. But anyway, am in full agreement with you OP. Stop looking outside yourself and indeed the world for help. It starts inside you, yeah?

I believe there's a form of superficiality going on beneath this sort of attitudes. I'm ALL for communicating/interacting with extraterrestrial beings (like most of us here) but in no way should one be dependant on other beings,terrestrial or extraterrestrial, to solve what is up to them to solve.
You are right..As long as the present human nature does not change,nothing will truly change for the better.
It's also sad that people don't think more about the alien beings' intentions before throwing themselves at their feet.
