Your fears are not unfounded. But, only in a mental capacity. It's natural for human beings to fear the unknown. Not only regarding our universe, but
especially regarding our daily lives. People experience anxiety when they don't know if they're going to be able to pay the bills. Something that's
really offers no harm to oneself, but rather would result in "harm" in the form a made-up financial system. No physical harm can be incurred from
not being able to pay your bills, yet some experience such fear and anxiety from bills that people sometimes think of ending their lives because of
Fear can be a very debilitating thing.
But, the fact is you have less to fear from an extraterrestrial than you do from your own species of humans.
As human beings we've had the capacity to travel the outer reaches of our planet. Even to reach other planets with our un-manned technology (some
would argue with manned-technology with some black-op projects). We've had this ability for 30+ years, yet we only focus a fraction of our budget on
these ventures. Rather, we spend a seemingly infinite amount on securing natural resources throughout our world in a attempt to secure our power and
domination over our planet.
I've heard a lot of people ask, "If we're being visited by 'aliens' then why don't they let us know they're here?". It's a very simple
answer: We're not yet mature enough to accept their existence. We're a religious-based species and if they showed up one day on a pit-stop to their
universal travels ans said "hi and bye" it would disrupt our entire social belief system and probably cause A LOT more harm than anything else.
Others ask, "If they're "nice" then why don't they help us from killing each other?". The answer to that is a pretty simple analogy as well:
Parents don't sit down and do all their children's homework for them because they don't want to raise a complete idiot.
It's my belief that if there is an extraterrestrial species that is visiting our planet, they're completely benign. They've resolved their
differences a long, long time ago in pursuit of advancing their species future. With the technological advancement (probably hundreds of thousands of
years beyond our own) they could probably destroy an entire country (and possibly a planet) with the blink of an eye.
My point being; if they wanted to harm us, they would have already done so. You shouldn't fear being "eaten" by extraterrestrial travelers.
I don't think extraterrestrials will (intentionally) reveal their presence to Earth as a whole until we mature enough as a species to accept that
we're not the pinnacle of existence. Also, we have a long way to go in technological advancement. I don't think we'll be accepted into the
Universal community until we're able to travel outside of our own solar system. And we have a LONG time until we reach that point.
But, to answer your question ... would I go?
