ETI, because of this deplorable cognitive state of humanity, find virtually all human beings of the planet Earth to be incredibly boring and pathetic. Intellectually and psychically, human beings are regarded as dull and undeveloped, lacking higher psychic functions, and hardly worthy of being called "human". Humanity is on average subhuman from the standpoint of ETI. When human beings from Earth are occasionally brought to other star-systems or taken on space voyages, they are treated more as pets or retarded imbeciles.
ETI sees human beings of Earth as lacking genuine Free Will. Though human beings pride themselves on "thinking for themselves", "not belonging to cults", "making their own choices" and so on, it is hard to find an authentic human being who does real thinking, is free from prejudice and possessing an individual decision-system that acts with a freedom to act beyond mere habit, conditioning, routine or clinging to familiar things, people and ideas.
Human beings are seen as something more like helpless robots running in programmed ruts than actual free spirits who can understand or do something unusual or "out of character" for them. Human beings, like herd animals, cling to conditioned norms and pseudo-moralities (like the "War on Terror") even when the norms and pseudo-moralities are destructive to their health and sanity. They tend to hate anyone who is "different", so various cultures, subcultures, nations, languages and peoples are all treated as virtual enemies. In fact, anyone who is "different" or "foreign" is even called "alien", as if they might as well be Extraterrestrials, who they also call Aliens.
Beware the bearers of FALSE gifts & their BROKEN PROMISES.
Much PAIN but still time.
There is GOOD out there.
We OPpose DECEPTION.

Well...our technological development recently has been impressive...but probably not so impressive to ET's if we did in fact get a hold of Alien technology and reverse engineer it...anyhow, that isn't the point...it's:
#2) sure, maybe they have figured out how to bend space-time to travel or develop anti-gravity technology, or whatever: but, are they capable of reasoning, sarcasm, humor, competition-sport, love(?)...?
Yes, they most likely do...
I think a lot of ET races feel sympathy toward us because we cause ourselves so much suffering.
That's exactly right...we are our own worst enemy...but I do think the PTB have some sort of part in keeping us "stuck in the patterns" and preventing us from evolving...
However there is nothing they can do because we are so subservient to our human masters and would not accept their influence. If an alien race were to attempt an interaction with us, most people would be unable to cope with it. Our fear and ignorance keeps us stuck in the same patterns and prevents us from evolving. Not only are we mentally and spiritually retarded by our own design, but we are also severely damaged from all the pain and destruction we have brought upon ourselves.
Yes, that's probably a huge part of it...but once again, it comes down to ignorance and egotism doesn't it?
This is why I think they think we are pathetic - because we keep killing each other.
Well, it's virtually inescapable...but we do have the ability to exert some independence and question/challenge the system...that's something...right?
You can thank yourselves to be quite honest. Your the ones apart of the system. You say your not a sheep but you all participate in it in some way!
Well...lets just hope so aye?
The time for change is now!
what do you think they would think of us?
Well...I'd have to agree there, you're totally right, in the grand sceme of things, it practically means nothing...everything goes through cycles and resets...but I think it's more our inability to live in balance or create some sort of harmony with our environment. All we do, is mindlessly destroy it, thinking of only the immediate future, instead of future generations and the preservation of our species. It's completely ignorant and fueled only by greed. That is where they see a fault.
From a 'destruction of the planet' standpoint, I would think this would have to be 'overlooked' when judging us as a civilization.
Maybe I should have been clearer...if they are visiting Earth, we are assuming a highly advanced species of ET's capable of travelling vast cosmic distances, probably by utilizing hyper-dimensional craft or some form of highly advanced technology...
So all this talk about how they think, etc, it doesn't matter because as you said, we're assuming aliens are real, and since we're assuming, it doesn't make sense to assume the aliens are morally or fundamentally superior.
