In a word, a documentary is needed, hopefully with plenty of real time action, as the best form of pre-Contact with an ET species or people (including humans?).
What if the ET species or people (if they exist) aren't able to see the film? How can we know how they see?
The film medium, I'm convinced, would soften, as much as possible, the harsh blow to the fragile egos and psyches of (apparent) billions of the various types of (political and religious) true believers, CULTISTS (that's right), who unfortunately constitute the majority of folks on this rock, at least now. The film is or would be the introduction to absolute proof of the intelligently unseen (IU), thereby creating a truly new political world by default.
Then you have to find that place first.
What better place to begin the historic presentation than from a spacecraft on Mars? I'm picturing a narrator, like me, next to a large window of the craft, with a view of something most stunningly (as possible) Martian - something NASA and the Yew-Ess gubment (Spookocracy) would be vehemently against the public knowing today.
That's just silly, why change the name of something that has been know by that name for more than 2000 years?
And I say Mars because that's the planet's name today, but I'm for getting rid of backward, needlessly destructive concepts like a (Roman) "god" of friggin' WAR, for Chrissakes. I personally would rename it Eros, the Greek "god" of love...
I don't know, and I'm sure that anyone will have their own opinion.
Who would make the best first Earthling on Mars, or the focal one, most officially, in a civilized enough (for once), open, non-secretive (by definition) way, whether or not it has already happened in the opposite/dark side way, which I have a strong hunch it has?
Why is an "artist or other artistic-poetic enough soul" the best candidate? In what way does someone like that represents better who we are?
I believe an artist or other artistic-poetic enough soul who also has a rational-scientific enough mind is the best candidate, and this is my formal nomination of myself for the task, at least to my limited knowledge.
If I ever be in a position to chose such a person, I don't think I would choose you, but if I will be in that position I will contact you.
Count me in as one of the Extricated in whatever capacity, if at all possible.
No. If I started calling you Josephine, would everybody knew that I was talking about you?
Let's turn Mars into Eros, and obviously rename its dark side-named moons (Phobos and Demos) as well.
Neither do I, maybe that's why I don't understand your answer.

I don't see how it's possible to determine a right or wrong, or a more rational versus less rational, between our exchange, ArMaP.
Maybe we have different definitions of "ideal"...
It's why "ideal" is in the title, based on my opinion, experiences etc.
