I agree with you on some points, but mainly what the documentary is trying to say is that we can change the world with what we have right here right
now. We don't have to wait for an hypothetical mystical change in people's minds, you know like in some clips or movies where people would suddenly
stop doing what they are doing and go in the streets and look at other people like if it was the first time they saw real people and hug them. I am
afraid this will never happen, I would say that's another kind of wishful thinking, or magical thinking.
We don't need friendly benevolent aliens to help us change our world, because we could do it ourselves. We don't need humans with superpowers,
because our imagination and our science/technology is a kind of superpower, and until now we are the only creative and conscious beings that we know
of that is capable of this. I would say we are full of superpowers, we just overlooked them. Maybe aliens are real and they visited us in the past and
they continue to visit us, maybe there are some humans that have real paranormal capabilities, but this changes nothing to our problem.
I would say that reality is overwhelmingly complex and incredible compared to any fiction that you could think of. We don't need unicorns and mighty
dragons or other fantastic creatures, we can just look at a rhinoceros or a giraffe and it looks just as incredible and strange. Just imagine a writer
creating a story about our reality, and how incredible and marvellous it would sound. The greatest story ever told is our reality, we just have to
look at it with a new eye, with the eyes of child full of curiosity.
All in all, yes the documentary overlooks some topics, but it was not really its point.
