I apologize if this has been posted already, though I've done a search and was surprised not to find a similar thread.
Picture this: One day, after decades of searching the skies... They came. Aliens, I mean. The real ETs' millions of years more advanced and evolved
than us, coming down on their shiny flying saucers, stepping out of the cockpit with a hand/tentacle outstretched saying, "We come in peace!"
What the hell would we say? what would the first words to come out of our mouths be?
What if we were the ones meeting them?
After hundreds of years exploring the universe in our fancy, smancy warpdrive spaceships, we come across another species exploring the galaxy. Or we
find another planet, full of intelligent life, maybe slightly less (or greatly less) advance than us.
What would we say to them? "We come in peace?" "Take us to your leader?"
What about you specifically? What would you say to an ET who had a mind grossly more advanced than you are?
