is any one out there via intent dealing with the media to create such exposure, alien movies etc. Is that any part of your work with languages?
Also what do you think of "emotion" you refer to her compassion as important, the best part. but is the pain healthy? Should it be experienced over and over
I guess the question is where do you stand on the Spock vs Captain Kirk views of sentience?
Domesticated trees don't talk the language that the Amerindians talk and the pesticides and other chemicals that are no doubt introduced shut down their other lines of communication with their ecosystem, which will eventually lead to the collapse of that ecosystem as it has everywhere else it has touched.
But the same video illustrates my point - that humanity deserves the intervention of anyone 'out there' with the means to save this world...
Amerindians were also "aliens" at some point of their past history. Actually, they were invaders. Brutal ones, by the way. At some point in the past they also created a vast civilization, and even in Amazonia you are now discovering big cities, sadly this is due to the deforestation practices being carried out there. This tells you that a potential contact with an advanced civilization from another stellar system will also unveil to you the fact that its past
history is also full of wars, crimes, and destruction. The question is whether a given civilization has learned to cope with those events, and whether they have integrated into their worldview their own past. A civilization that has not overcome that stage should not attempt contact. Unless you wish to enter into trading agreements, exploitation of local resources, subjugation, war, and destruction. Cooperation is always among equals, otherwise it soon becomes
dependency and colonization.

You are right, it is tiresome. You are wrong: you are already showing me whom you are. Actually, I am not interested in whether you believe in the existence of civilizations in other stellar systems and what you think of them. I think it is more helpful to know what you think about your own civilization. Do you care for others here? Is not arrogance from your side assuming you do? Tell me.

I write from a religious perspective so they must die in order to be born again, the doctrine of the Ninja Midwife were you end up with the same number of people as when you started, so no actual killing considered, it's useful but not for those that die.
However, those that manage to overcome their innate tendencies toward continuous material growth and replace them with non-material goals will be the only ones to survive that final fate. The net result is this: your entire galaxy will become populated by stable, highly ethical and spiritual civilizations.
