My take on the nature of alien visitations is a little different.
We always assume the ones who visit earth represent their whole society. As if one grey ship would show up during the champions league final match. A
leader would step out and say hello and initiate the relations between two races.
But what if the ones who come here are just scientists making discoveries to the farthest reaches they can go. Maybe the whole civilization is not
able to make those interstellar travels and come into contact with humanity anyway.
My analogy to the alien visitations is like the scuba divers and deep sea fish. We have the technology to go deep down in the ocean but only a handful
of people go there, either for scientific purposes or as a hobby. And they can just make contact with a handful of the creatures living down there.
This will sound silly but, imagine the fish...
They'd be like, "woah, man did you see that. I saw a huge light coming from above, some big
fishlike creatures came out of it, there were bubbles and stuff. One tried to touch me then they left off!"
Then there's the whale saying that, "I swear to god they tagged me, these aliens from above the sea."
Ofcourse fish don't have language and a civilization unlike humans but then again the situation might be similar. It might not be like the
macellan's discoveries "hey there there's land up ahead, let's go and meet the guys over there."
