Your post contains lots of 'ifs' and 'maybes' and in the final analysis, it's all conjecture, isn't it -- plus a lot of wishful thinking.
Seems quite often that some people don't like the deal they're offered from 'God', so they transfer their hopes to extraterrestrials, the
plus-side being that each individual can design their own.
Some 'imagine' extraterrestrials as benign .. sort of Fairy Godmothers/fathers of the Cosmos, whilst others regard them as 'reptilian and
That would be fine, except that having assumed the right and power to 'imagine' terrestrials according to their own wish-lists, people then 'want'
these objects of their own creation to manifest. And it doesn't happen. Pretty much the same as people trying to make 'God' appear on cue and
cater to their imaginings and desires.
So then there's the impatience, which in turn leads to lots of 'channelling' and 'sightings' and 'contacts' experienced only by the person
telling the story'.
People aren't to blame, really. They were raised on tv and movies and many believed Star Wars and Star Trek were historical documents, during their
childhood and teens.
The reality is though that we're here and have to work, eat, survive this dimension. There are those who'd beg to differ and who'd claim
this dimension is a figment of our minds' programming, etc. Fact is though, if you don't satisfy your body's demands for water and food, you'll
depart this dimension, like it or not, with no guarantee there's anything to follow.
No matter how desperately we 'want' something to occur (say, for example, an alien invasion or mass landing, peace on earth, whatever) the fact is,
we get older every day and sooner or later we're forced to accept that 'wanting' and fantasising about something is not always sufficient to 'make
Sure, 'aliens' of whatever type may make themselves known during our lifetime. They might sprinkle us with cosmic fairy-dust or burn us to a crisp.
If it happens, it happens. But until then we have to feed and clothe and house ourselves and (if we have one) our families. That's our task in
this reality and can't be dodged. As we work and cook and iron clothes and sweep the floors, we can fantasise about how 'great' or 'terrifying'
our lives would be should 'aliens' arrive, but if the fantasies get in the way of our current reality, we'll have failed even as humans, and
we alone, individually, will pay the price for that, be it homelessness, starvation, dire poverty or anti-delusional medication. As they say to
aspiring authors, it's best to stick with what we know. And as yet, we don't even know all that much about the human condition, let alone supposed
