spoof ip addresses so we can communicate.
And there we go....
That doesn't make any sense...why send robots anyhow? Why not just show up? Did they call you on your cell?
Two things, the material and spiritual. The spiritual side is that's because they could be killed on the spot which would mean they would be trapped
inside the human beings soul until someone finds them and explains what happened. Go make some neanderthal understand modern day technology, then let
him/her grasp their technology and you might as well forget about it as it would take too long and an operative might be out for awhile.
The material side would be because they can't establish first contact without sending the physical side as well. But also because most humans are
easily attracted by material things and it is easier to make them look into the lights, it's pretty much the advanced civilization trading beads with
the natives scheme.
And last but not least even if they came in their most protective suits, the human casualties would be considerable and that would negate the point of
first contact when most of the population dies because of it.
It's mostly the story of how humans are children to them and they'd all compete for their attention and worldleaders would get all upset possibly
launching nukes and maybe some might even get jealous when the ET's don't pick their capital to visit first and they would want to get even. They
couldn't land all at the same time, there would still be a first to us linear singlepointed thinking humans.
