I also deal in facts, and not claims. The things I have presented are facts, and, from One who is in a better position to know. My species has been traveling the stars for something on the order of 60 million of your years. I feel that my people, culture should know a couple of things.
Yes, I've heard and seen the kinds of things Crows can, and, do do. They are truly amazing. It is however, also true that they don't use advanced tools, and have no, even moderately, advanced technologies.
Yes, humanoids have large brains. But then, so does that machine in front of you. The computers we had back in the 70's could not do what computers of today can. The reason: 70's era computers were 8 bit systems, today we have 64 bit machines. To make this leap inprocessing ability required the use of greater space. The same holds true for biological processors.
Peoples with religion and culture are more likely to develop a sense of honor, a sense of right and wrong. Evolving a large brain and thus the more advanced concepts may help prevent some large brained species from initiating your extinction. It is a fact, that those who don't play nice, are driven off or killed, thus these traits are actually a good thing, even if they require greater processing power. Also, more nerotransmitters would require more receptors, this would neccessarily lead to a larger brain. Etharzi od Oma

Anyone can claim to be an ET. But you have to prove it. I could prove it because I've studied science enough to know how to build a warp drive. But I'm not an ET. I just learned my math.
How does knowing how to build a warp drive prove anyone to be an alien? Besides, proof, it seems, in in the eye of the beholder. I've presented my evidence, and in time I will present more.
I find it funny that every technology ETs have ever been shown to have are never more than the speculations of that time period. Aliens of the 1950s never had boson-condensate compressors to create gravity, or gluon bombs, or antimatter. But once they are discovered, suddenly aliens have it.
Why would One want to use a boson-condensate compressor to create artificial gravity? There are much easier, practical, and real methods to do that.
Terrestrial science has even been able to create your basic warpdrive, and it doesn't require exotic technology. Granted the warp factor is very low, but ...
There are even people working on the theory behing creating traversable wormholes, and tachyon systems. So, it seems that ET isn't the only one with exotic technologies.

First they have to look like us. Then they have to adapt their new look/build/transformation whatever changes they have done to themselves, to comply with our environment, weather, climate, air, gravity, etc... Lastly they have to know our languages, culture and religion. I don't know dolphin could live in a desert without water although they breath oxygen.
They are human from another earth. Therefore walking among men in this planet is just a piece of cake without detection.
The possibilities are endless when What IF question being raised.
Are there ETs walking among us?

Leaving soon? All sparring aside, I hope your health is ok Anthra!
Thank you for the note of concern. Actually my health is good, as far as I know. As I have said before I see a human doctor on a regular basis, actually several of different types ... Anyway the only concern my MD has is my weight. The issue there is that I'm a software engineer, and so sit quite a lot. Thankfully, my Wolf gets be out from behind the computer a few times a day, and "walks" for her are almost always 30 min or more.
