I recently had what I considered a personal revelation. Should alien life truly be visiting our planet, wouldn’t there be an inexhaustible number of
issues to contemplate and examine for our own good, many of which are not related to the obvious concession their technology is more advanced than
ours? As in almost any interaction with others, it is imperative to know the person, or in this case “entity” in order to understand more about
who or what you are dealing with.
So as a personal exercise I started a list of things I would be curious about if aliens were to announce themselves or become undeniable for whatever
reason. I scared myself, laughed, pondered deeply, doubted myself, plus many, many more thoughts and reactions, but I found it an absolutely
FASCINATING exercise trying to determine what I considered is possible, probable, realistic and best or worse case scenarios.
So here is my 15 minute compilation of attributes. You will think of many others, and probably much more important ones. Obviously in no particular
order and I apologize for the lack of organization. Do you see any that you think are more important than the others or can you suggest some of your
own for consideration?
If they are real, I want to understand them.
Do they have:
Individual personalities-- Potential level for variant psychological discrepancies
Various integrated races?
Different organs than we have for whatever?
100% use of their brains
Favorite food (hopefully not humans)
Have they surpassed our supposed “laws” of physics successfully
Found ways around the laws?
Writing/other forms of communication than we are familiar with
Evolution of their species?
Belief in creationism?
Could they even be a lower species on their world just looking for new experience?
Creativity, art, music, entertainment, concept of fiction?
Concept of bravery
Concept of respect (for other life forms, perhaps?)
Range of intelligence (Are their dumb ones as dumb as ours?)
Concept of family
Rights of others
Belief/knowledge of ghosts
DNA or something else?
Do they understand a preference?
Transportation in native environment
Concept of ownership
Believe in humans? Could they somehow not be aware of us?
Autonomous or co-dependent
Level of maturity in comparison with one another and/or us
What is their degree of self awareness?
What is their native environment
How do they experience sight, smells, hearing, tasting touching, and any additional “senses”
Physical bodies still necessary?
