Of course, we must first assume Aliens exist, and obviously, there is quite a number of people on ATS who do not believe (or are unsure) that Aliens
exists....but assuming Aliens do exist, and have been visiting Earth for some time, what do you think they would think of us? I believe it is a mix of
love and hate...well maybe hate, isn't the right word...this article below accurately describes exactly how I
think Aliens look at
Humans...here is a small extract:
Who and What are the Extraterrestrial Cosmic Powers
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.
Now, this guy is crude and harsh in what he says, but he is absolutely correct IMO, he couldn't get any closer to the truth, it's right on the
money. This article was written a while ago, but if you haven't, please read the full article and let me know what you think, because I believe this
is one of the most important things ever written...
But we also have the other side of the argument...these Aliens would obviously be highly advanced...it is possible they respect our "primitiveness"
and our ability to try
and care for nature? If you have seen Avatar, you probably felt the same respect for the blue guys (sorry, forgot their
name)...their simplistic lifestyle, their ability to live in harmony with nature, and their ability to enjoy and embrace life and enjoy the simple
things...to take in the beauty of this universe instead of tearing it down and replacing it with artificial structures and technology...there are a
great amount of people who understand and respect nature in just this way...and you can't ignore our ability to show love and passion...I don't
believe we are completely boring and pathetic...although corruption and greed rules, there is still good remaining within our society...this crop
circle message gave me great hope the moment I read it:
Beware the bearers of FALSE gifts & their BROKEN PROMISES.
Much PAIN but still time.
There is GOOD out there.
We OPpose DECEPTION.
If you haven't heard of this crop circle, I suggest you go and check it out, but I doubt many people haven't seen it, it's extremely famous. So, to
finish things up, I'll just say, I do think the Aliens have a great disrespect for us, but I believe they also see something in us...some glimmer of
hope...and they haven't given up on us yet...or so we can hope...thoughts?
EDIT: Sorry, link fixed. Oh...BTW, ETI = Extraterrestrial Intelligence.
