I believe the earth is a giant mining operation, do I think that's the sole reason we exist? Not at all, I feel as if mining is just a small operation compared to the grand scheme of things. I'd never claim any of this to be fact, I accept that its my belief and its all just assumptions, but I believe it nonetheless.
I the think the mining we did has been a thing of the past for a while though. Earth is nothing more than a planet with inhabitants now. Whatever interaction we may have had with ET has been over with for a while. Could happen again, and if it does I think it will have nothing to do with mining.
