TO the rest of you I say ... AGBLVKAST GURGLE MOGRY!!! * Violently slaps tentacle on table*...
Ar you not green blooded depending on your race?
Hmmmm...it would seem I have overestimated your cultural diversity fellow space faring species...
Look I know everyone here likes the beef on earth , and I have argued among the higher ranking GRUNTINFAR BRINDLESTOV...
That earth may very well
be worth exploiting, just for the cattle alone, but since we have successfully stocked "Argtal 12" withwell over 20 Billion reproducing cattle
clones of superior quality we have no reason for slaughtering the hapless human species for the delicacies and... *Mouth
That being said I request humbly among my fellow space folk that we collaborate to establish exactly what we do with not only the people of earth but
Now I have heard some interesting concepts mostly revolving around our do not interfere polices. I like... I like it.
But there are some issues..
Case in point..
Quote superluminally transmitted via holographic something or other.. from: An Introduction to the Scientific Study of Extraterrestrial Life,
Intelligence, and Civilization, First Edition, Xenology Research Institute, Sacramento, CA, 1979:
By Robert A. Freitas Jr
"1. Disturbance of the system -- Since they are the ones with high technology, they will not fear us.1208 Thus the greatest danger to the enterprise
is that of observer influence (a common problem in measurement science).77[?] If the mere act of observation will disrupt or destroy the system under
observation, it behooves the observer to minimize that disruption. As Richard J. Rosa of Avco Everett Laboratories puts it: "A hundred years [may be]
of little consequence to them. The fact that Columbus did not hesitate to talk to the Indians was not without consequences that were unfortunate for
Europe and tragic for the Indians. Perhaps our interstellar visitors have learned to be more cautious -- and considerate."344
2. Minimizing the disruption -- An advanced society can certainly make a planetary survey without the primitive indigenous knowing about it.377 As
added security in maintaining anonymity, aliens and their artifacts could sport many clever disguises.49 Ufologist Jacques Vallee notes: "To make
ultimate detection impossible, [the aliens] would have to project an image just beyond the belief structure of the target society."1189 In fact, it
is rather difficult to explain why, if they wish to avoid contact, the UFOs allow themselves to be seen at all.747
3. Standard first contact procedures -- Space faring ETs will undoubtedly be experienced at the business of contacting other cultures. The following
has been suggested by anthropologists familiar with the problem:
"Exploration will proceed in a series of ordered steps. At each star the team will investigate the system and locate any planets. If they find a
planet they will evaluate its habitability, physical resources and life forms. If any signs of intelligent life are discovered the survey team will
have to decide whether to withdraw or attempt contact. This will involve careful observation from a distance to acquire information before actually
making contact. At first, in order to gain language skills and social understanding, contact will be limited to individuals in small groups. In this
way we can increase the chance of success at the official, formal meeting with ET leaders to arrange recognition and continued contact."
So these crazy apes may be on to something after all...
