Imagine yourself entering into the Earth’s sphere and spending time observing the societies all around the globe.
You see human beings at their best and at their worst.
It’s the “worst” that you take note of most.
Having learned “Human Nature” and how humans make decisions, respond to problems, what humans consider most important, how honest or dishonest we are, our government models, our elected officials, our states of mind throughout our societies, how we solve problems, how we create problems, how we respond to problems, and the areas we focus on in our lives – how we live our lives,…
…what do we consider is likely to happen when introducing oneself to humans?
If you thought, utter and complete chaos, you’re right. FIRST, in this time period, there would be panic, there would be fear, there would be RED ALERTS everywhere.
After things settled down, all of human nature would come down upon the visitors like a ton of bricks. There would be tolerance and intolerance. There would be cooperation and non-cooperation, respect and disrespect, suspicion and blind trust. In other words, how we treat people on earth is how we would treat people not from earth. There is no change in how we would respond to them, than how we respond to each other, right now. We are the people that we are.
Currently, we don’t treat each other that well. We try. We really do try hard, but we still have much in the way of conflict, wars and non-cooperation. Why would they want to get mixed up in this?
We do offer a lot of great and wonderful things. There are many great and wonderful qualities within us. But, right now, …………….. there’s also a great and wonderful need for “improving.”
In general, we humans make our big and small decisions based not always on facts, but on desires, opinions, sometimes prejudices, – the best of our nature and the worst of our nature. There are plenty of humans who love to get mixed up in the best of our nature and the worst of our nature. There are plenty who seek to demonstrate both the best and the worst of human nature.
We humans treat other people sometimes with respect and kindness, but other times with abuse, hatred, and insults. When we disagree, sometimes we attack and sometimes we kill.
All of these aspects of human behavior will not go away just because non-earth beings show up. They know this.
There would be great demands for their technology. There would be demands to solve the problems on our planet. There would be demands for them to not interfere with how we decide our own planet, (ie. stay out of our wars – “They’re our wars, not yours, and you don’t get to decide who we kill.”)
The only thing safe for them is to let us know they exist and then stay away. And that is how it has happened already, which allows for the status quo to remain and progress to move slowly for everyone.
Human beings generally would want the visitors to solve all the human beings’ problems, because we tend to think technology solves all problems. It doesn’t. We struggle with this truth even without ETs.
We tend to think those who have greater resources should give what they have to those who don’t have resources – even now, that doesn’t solve problems. We don’t have enough Earth resources to give to everyone. We tend to be an unselfish, as well as a selfish species. Like winning the lottery sometimes negatively affects winners – this instant change also can cause destructive problems to expand and get worse. Societies could gain some strengths, but the weaknesses would grow, as well.
The Star Trek Prime Directive goes both ways. They are not currently making themselves known, because it would create so many more problems – for them, and for us.
Even Hollywood has never had aliens land and say, “We’re here to solve all your problems for you.” Anyone who comes saying that is not to be believed, as we’ve learned by watching commercials on TV.
Any ETs that land publicly would only be another player on the planet – dealing with all the turmoils with which the people of Earth are still struggling. Why announce oneself and get mixed up with the problems we humans currently have, if it only creates more problems for everyone.
There will be a day when they do come forth publicly. There is a time range which this could happen, and it depends on the growth of the human race on this planet. The earliest from this point on, that I am seeing, would be the mid 2050s and the latest would be at the beginning of the next century in the 2110s. The highest potential time is around the turn of the century. In the meantime, they make themselves known to some individuals in the manners which we already are involved with, for the purpose of furthering insight, cooperation and understanding – and respect for self-determination and boundaries.
