enforce your own ethical code which in IAG's opinion, that we aren't ready for the tech yet at the same time avoiding mass extinction. The chips are down.


It would appear that a simple kill me, kill humanity answer isn't that easy to extract out of you guys.

OK here's an addition to the story. What statement could you make that would stall or convince the alien that humanity was worthy?

I dont know for certain, but I am thinking telling the aliens that humanity will react to your death by starting a bloody violent war and slaughtering millions might not actually be taken as evidence of our spiritual worthiness.

Of course maybe you are trying to get us all annihilated too?

My aura is the color of Cheetos.

Edit to add; I guess my aura isnt really the color of Cheetos. I licked my fingers and now they are back to normal. I think it was just Cheeto dust.

If I were to die the U.S. would fall into another war with China. Millions would die. Kill one and kill millions, or save me and possibly save, the world from war. That would be my response..


OK, now we are getting a little more creative, anymore suggestions

Maybe they can only read what's in people's minds and must activate a program to see how it plays out, thus requiring an action and quick decision. Who knows, if the greediest banker were faced with a problem of this magnitude, things might take an unexpected turn. Don't forget his or her dilemma: it's doubtful the world they relied upon to amass their weath would still exist due to the advancements and their amassed wealth would be worthless to them if the alpha population were forced into extinction.

Yeah, it's all completely hypothetical at this point and I'm guessing will be for some time but still fun to ponder.

Not me I want to live, I tell ya

If we came down to it, I would try to reason, but if all else failed, I would sacrifice my existence for the sake of humanity.

BUT FIRST, I would reason my butt off to try and avert that situation


Still looking for good arguments.

I could say they violated their own agreement by saying "this very moment". The moment would have had to pass by the time I could decide, thus I was rendered incapable of making a decision at that very moment. I am going to sue for breach of contract. If they don't follow that they only show that they're a grievously savage race themselves.

And, as I said before, they cannot take my spirit since all is one spirit. They aren't competent enough to be performing their services. They're sheisters for offering me false choices. Conmen they are. Sue them for fraud.



Naturally, they'll make their own decision and take whatever course of action they deem appropriate if they possess the power they say they do. Standing up if only by objecting shows respect for all others and yourself and a willingness to self-sacrifice.

Perhaps I could say that it's always this very moment, that all there is is this very moment, and I will sacrifice myself by dying naturally when I would have anyway, which will still be this very moment.

The ultimate test? My number 2 pencil ran out of ink! Hold on!

Give peace a chance, spread love, stop war, create better technologies available to everyone.

Everyone grow there own food.

There is a possibility of humanity turning around and being equals.

They already think so. Why would they need much convincing? They're already willing to accelerate the species which sort betrays their actual view of humanity's potential and its worthiness and that they're already aware of its stage of development. The test is actually one of disproving our worthiness. The benefit of the doubt is already there.

Q did it better by putting humanity on trial from the start and forcing the crew of the Enterprise to take action, proving or disproving it in a genuine way through actions.

I have proof that the system of government may be changing soon, but it is such a controversial subject, because it effects the economy of the world.

I also am training to be apart of Reiki healing and Energy moving, which makes vibration in each person higher so when the transfer to the 5th dimension happens more people will go.

I know my true purpose and it is to help prevent a War breaking out over land and worthless paper.

Aha! And so you admit I took correct actions. Heh. See...delayed and our chance of survival just went up.

And somewhere on the planet, a guy gets to eat another corn chip, somebody else manages to sip another mouthful of beer, two lovers get to experience ecstasy(for the last time), some crazy guy about to kill his wife(doesn't)
etc, etc,

The world has a lot to thank you for EnlightenUp

More than they currently realize I assure you. I see you don't understand my nature and seem to be getting a little miffed at my style of participation. This was supposed to be a fun and imaginitive exercise was it not?

But, since I was out of the drawing...well, they aren't exactly asking me anyway. It's up to the next one how many more preservative-laden corn chips that dude gets to munch.
