Aliens / Curiousity Killed the Cat

It’s always interesting when you see these shows on TV, shows talking about aliens and UFOs. All of these people around Earth want to see life on other planets. So many wish to live to see aliens come to Earth.

I think Mr. Stephen Hawking summarized it well during a TV interview:

“If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans,”

— Now, think closely on what this person said. Hawking is definitely not perfect nor is he always right but he is one of the smartest humans to have ever lived during the past 5,500 years. What he was trying to explain in that simple comment is extremely logical and important to the future of this planet, as it pertains to aliens.

Imagine, for a second that some form of life finds us before we find them.

Okay, what happens every time a more advanced species finds a less advanced one? Do you sit around trying to have a conversation with a rat or an ant? Now think for a second what would happen if an advanced being with more superior intelligence finds humans on Earth? It doesn’t take a renowned astrophysicist to figure that one out: If they find us first, this means they are far more intelligent, far more advanced, and far superior to us…simple as that.  More advanced means better weaponry systems as well. Meaning, it will not be pretty and you might want to think about the question of whether or not they would be coming in peace.

Speaking of which…

Let’s go further. Why are humans trying desperately to find planets that can sustain life outside of Earth? If we found it, how many humans, out of the 6 billion on Earth do you think the powers that be would take with them? Humans are ruining Earth by overpopulating it as well as by the way we produce our goods. This is a fact. We are running out of precious resources like water and destroying our only protection from space, the ozone. Now, if we actually found another planet with living organisms or other intelligent life, do you think they would welcome a species like humans with open arms to their planet?

Now, wouldn’t it be logical that the opposite would apply? That if “aliens” or another species is looking for an alternative planet to live on or to acquire resources from, that we would welcome them with open arms? That they would come here and negotiate with us or care what we think about why they are here? If they get here, they have a mission and do you think that mission would be a peaceful one? Think further. If there are intelligent life forms searching for planets like Earth, much like we are, is it wise to be sending out signals to let them know where we are? Because if we saw each other, then it would be a race to see who gets to each other’s planet first, right?

This is what Stephen Hawking was talking about and this is what humans should consider when they wish for another species of intelligent life to visit Earth. In their quest to satisfy their curiousity, humans are blind to the consequences of the very thing they hope for.

Be careful what you wish for, is an appropriate saying here.

((By the way, there’s “certain evidence” to suggest that Earth’s population and level of advancement seems to regress back to the stone-age on a consistent basis throughout Earth’s history. Then as it grows to a certain large number and advanced state, it is destroyed again, and humans have to start from basic scratch levels…just thought I’d throw that out there.))
