It seems to me that if there are aliens out there, flying about our galaxy or solar system or even our planet, then they are highly advanced
technologically, and/or highly evolved.
We are thinking of aliens as being resource-driven entities. We really don't know if physical things like minerals and metals are of any use to them.
If any non-terrestrial life form were to contact us on Earth because they want our resources, I think that they would either do a hostile takeover
(which might be able to be done faster/easier than we humans can even imagine) or enter peaceful negotiations and reveal themselves to every human.
Let's assume we can rule out the hostile takeover. Really, for all you and I know, this takeover could already be complete. We could be the slaves
right now. But we'll assume that there was no hostile takeover and will not be a hostile takeover.
If aliens were going to make themselves known, perhaps they need enough people making a "call" to them collectively (or individually!) for them to
show up. If we don't want them to show up, they won't show up. The reason for this would be a respect of our free will as living entities. We all
strive to respect each other's free will (we all *should* do so anyways) - if these aliens are traveling space, then I'd bet their philosophy is
advanced as their technology. Actually, we as a species kinda mess up that idea - we have advanced tech but the general public is unfortunately
I think that the energy crisis is something we can easily avert, that there are already human-invented devices and tech which can solve our energy
issues, eliminating the need for certain resources. I think that aliens probably have more advanced energy sources, perhaps directly manipulating
photons, giving them rotation and essentially synthesizing chemical elements (see Reciprocal System of Theory, a unified field theory, the best I've
come across anyways www.rstheory.org - click Library at top right), which would eliminate the need for various metals and materials.
Perhaps they are so evolved that they no longer need resources or exist in material ways. Perhaps these UFO's we see are thought-projections of their
consciousness taking a form which can travel through space.
Perhaps these aliens are completely extra-dimensional and have complete control over their appearance in our dimensions. The excellent book, Flatland,
can help you to visualize what it's like to be a 1-dimensional, 2-dimensional, 3-dimensional, etc. entity. It also shows that, to a 2D entity, a 3D
entity would seem to be like a god, having the power to be in two places at once and generally royally $^#% up the 2D entity's laws of nature.
So these aliens could be 4D beings which naturally exist completely outside of our physical reality, not being bound by any of our material
I think this material world is our ball and chain, but necessary at the same time. Our ego allows us to learn more about the world, but also allows
for material attachments which often distort our understanding of the world. We have the ego so that we can be individuals, but it is also our
greatest challenger, and defeating the ego means to transcend all the suffering of material life.
Aliens, I would hope and expect, are very intelligent and either aim to uplift themselves (perhaps by enslaving others, much like human dictators) or
to uplift others (perhaps by offering us assistance and knowledge).
If aliens are hostile, a direct takeover might not be optimal. It might be best to secretly enslave a species so that there is no resistance. If you
don't know you are a slave, you won't fight your enslaved condition.
If aliens are kind/loving, I think they would have a high respect for other lifeforms and those lifeforms' free will. I don't think they will show
themselves until we hit some sort of tipping point in public opinion on UFO/ETs. Enough people need to desire contact for there to be public contact.
