We're not that important nor are we that visible. As jibby said, Interdimensional is another thing, but intergalactic beings flying here at warp speed
or bending space to get here, or using some unknown technology that allows them to traverse great distance with little effort, nope.. they're not
They may be there, but they're not here. They might make it here one millenia, but they're not here now.
It's like someone saying there is a forrest fire, but that no one can see it because it's a secret forrest fire, only the government knows about it.
And you say "Why would they make it a secret?" and they "Because no one is ready for such a forrest fire." and you say "I am.. and well, what about
the smoke?" and they say "Oh look up there, there is some smoke there." and you say "Nah, thats a cloud." and they say "No it isnt. Its smoke from the
secret government forrest fire that no one knows about." and you say "Look, that's a cloud. It's not smoke. You're an idiot." and they say "Don't be
so ignorant." and you say "Well where is the smoke then?" and they say "Ahh well it's invisible smoke." and you say "Bollocks, there's no such thing
as invisible smoke." and they say "Yes there is. The aliens gave it to us."
and we all bang our heads and fall over.
point is, what purpose do aliens visit us. None. Hello visitors? Nope.. Hello resources? Nope.. Hello humanity have some fancy tech!!.. nope..
And for those who think we're using amazing tech now.. how loverly for you to think that because you can BUY an ipod that they just grow on trees and
that no one has actually sat down and over the last few decades have managed to invent and create better versions of, things we take for granted
Velcro... Oooh alien...
Nope.. we don't have any alien craft. And if we do, they're pretty rubbish aren't they.. these aliens.. I mean they come all the way here, and we
managed to nab them first go. And then we invent microwaves and shoe laces. Neat!
