Hmm... here's the most likely reality...
It would be extremely awesome if Somnio was really an alien who signed up for a conspiracy forum to observe and interact with us. I would love
However, it's highly unlikely that this is the case.
It's funny, even in a small part of my own mind I'm wondering "what if this guy's really an alien?" But if you're serious with yourself, you
know that's a silly notion and that the WISH for such a reality is more exciting than the actual reality.
But... hey, that's the nature of escapism, entertainment, and even conspiracy theories- they allow you to suspend disbelief to enter a more
interesting world which is quite stimulating for your mind to ponder and allllmost plausible enough to immerse yourself fully in.
Who says a little role-playing isn't fun?
I think though, any rational/intelligent aliens would not base much their studies off of the medium of an internet forum. Peoples' behavior changes
in an online reality, whereas their in-person demeanor could be totally different (and of course much more complex/multi-layered) than the text-based
face they present via TEH INTERWEBZ. Also, any rational/intelligent aliens studying our species would probably take a super-scientific policy on the
whole ordeal and would find the core truths of our species over much time/study. The truth of who we are, what our civilization is, and the
differences/connections between them would be made undeniably apparent to any curious extra-terrestrials over due time. So in essence, if we're
screwed- it's already too late, if we're a cool species- then no worries. In my personal opinion (if I were a powerful alien race studying
humanity), I'd conclude that humans are an exceptional species, imperfect, but also capable of beautiful as well as beastly things. We are also
animals evolved from the same primordial soup as everything else on this planet. If there is any evil in our species that would be destroyed/stopped
by an alien race to save our planet, it'd be our civilization/system (or key parts of it) and NOT our species itself. Most of our problems stem from
our civilization exploding out of the agricultural revolution 10 thousand years ago. Prior to that (and even afterwards for some lucky humans) our
species lived for over 90 THOUSAND years without destroying the planet or each other at such an insane level as now. Essentially, our civilization is
unsustainable, not our species. We are not destined to be voracious and destructive, for 90% of our history as homo sapien sapiens we WEREN'T. We
must simply change the way we live on this planet, and this doesn't require alien saviors, religious saviors, super-advanced technology, or for
everyone to turn into peaceful loving evolved perfect monks.
