I had that discussion with Mother just the other day.
Who does own a planet? I'm not sure there is an easy answer.
Earth is currently enjoying that "recycled" position. Once the greatest life form was Reptilian, they ruled! Until a natural disaster struck. They
then died out and were replaced by Humans. Dinosaurs did not have the ability to destroy their world,but, Humans do. But, does that mean that ET can
now violate the rights of Terrestrial Humans, IT they pose a threat to their own world? At what point to planets have greater rights than a Human?
Tens of thousands of years ago my people, after many wars, some for our very survival as a species, and others for purely stupid reasons, we found
that our world would no longer support life as we knew it. Our world was effectively dead. We had poisoned our world, ravaged it with war, and
destroyed the one possession that should have been most dear to us; our home.
So, we left, found a new world And, yes, we are taking care of this one.
In our shame we tried to repair our original planet, most of that was a waste of time. However, over the space of that tie, our original little world
has come back. It new supports emerging life, new life.
So the question I had; "Is it still OUR home world?"
Since it is the planet where our species spawned; is it still our home world Do we have any right to the planet?
What about the rights of the new life?
And perhaps a bigger question; If we should see one of those new life forms, sometime in the distant future, pose a threat t that planet. Do we, as
former "owners" have the right to defend the planet. Do we have the right to interfere with the development of any new species, even if that new
species is causing damage?
In my personal philosophy: We do not have the right to interfere with that new species, no matter how destructive they may be. It would only be when
that species attempted to "export" their destructive stupidity, by leaving the planet, and step out into space, that we, as the "Stellar
Community" would have any
sort of authority to interfere.
Although, realistically, we would probably step in earlier, when they appeared ready, introduce ourselves, and try to provide some guidance. Perhaps
repair the damage done, and improve our "little brother's" world.
But, this is a very important question; When is the deliberate interference with a society, or, indeed, any individual become permissible?
One must understand this question in the proper context. We are talking about interfering with the"path" of that individual or society. Ones
"Path" is perhaps the most sacred thing in existence. It is the course you have charted through the Universe and your life.
Again, in my philosophy, this is simply not permitted, EVER!
We each have the Right to our own path, and the right to no be interfered with, We have no other rights except that single one.
If you look into Terrestrial history you will notice that ALL of the wars, and other issues you have suffered throughout history were caused by the
violation of that one single Right.
Personally; I can not accept any species that does not observe that single most important Right.
If it were my people; I'd be looking into DNA replacement.
