There are at least 100,000,000,000 stars per galaxy and 100,000,000,000 galaxies. Lets be extremely conservative and take a result of only one
civilization per galaxy from en.wikipedia.org...
. That means that there are 100,000,000,000 civilizations. If each
civilization were a penny, it would look like this!
Unfortunately, the distances are so incredibly vast that actual contact is unlikely. However, lets suppose that an extraterrestrial civilization
visited earth. They would be as far above us (because to accomplish a visit requires a knowledge vastly superior to ours) as we are to a
. * They would have no interest in taking our dung (TVs, cars, oil, our bodies). Most likely, they would
completely ignore us, just as we do ants. We do not go out of our way to step on one. However, if we do its not a big deal. The extraterrestrials
capable of visiting us, do not hate us or love us, they are completely indifferent!
* Considering that such a civilization would be millions of years ahead of us and knowledge increases exponentially
they would be vastly more advanced then we are from a dung beetle!! Explaining one of their
thoughts to a human would be like explaining Mozart to a rhinoceros!!
