personally believe First Contact has already been made and was made too early, at a time when the Earth was not ready, probably in the late 1940’s. We were still very tribal and had just ended another World War by dropping an Atomic Bomb on a population. Contact was limited to secret meetings with Earth’s best scientists. Only now are we starting to see the beginnings of the process leading to First Contact. It may take another 200 years before we’re ready, but we are seeing the birth of our first global civilisation, a pre-requisite necessary before First Contact can be made.
So, what could THEIR motives be? Some argue that they can’t be hostile, because if they were, they’d have attacked by now. Not necessarily. It’s possible the visitors so far have been scouts, checking us out before backup arrives. Maybe we’ve over estimated their industrial capabilities, it could be they’re building up their forces as I write this. All I’m saying is we shouldn’t get too complacent.
Hopefully, they come in the name of Galactic peace and brotherhood. If not, we’ll go the same way as the Aztecs, Native Americans and Aboriginals.
