UFO Files: Extraterrestrial Fears

I could sit and ponder the existence of UFO's all day long. (And sometimes, I do.) Mostly what I think about are the words of theoretical physicist Stephen Hocking, where he warns us about the dangers of earth being discovered by extraterrestrials - comparing such an event to Christopher Columbus landing in the new world that led (eventually) to the demise of so many Native American tribes, only in Mr. Hocking's belief, we would be the Native Americans.

I hear this theory quite a bit from such higher minds than mine. Many carry this notion that if our planet was visited by a higher intelligent species that we would become their slaves or something. That this higher intelligent species would be (or could very well be) somewhat hostile with seedy motives. And I suppose this could be true however, I'm going to have to disagree with this theory on several grounds. The first being that our intelligence as a human race back in the days of Christopher Columbus was far inferior than where we are now. I would like to think that we have learned our own lessons about wiping out an entire race of people. Well, I would hope most of us have learned this lesson. I understand there are still some races of humans who probably believe in genocide. That's scary enough. But it would be my assumption, and hope, that even we, as Americans, have evolved enough to the point where we would respect life, and I'm pretty sure for the most part, we have, that we would never resort to that kind of thing again.

Thinking along those lines of evolution, intelligence, and learning lessons, I'm in the mindset that any being of species who carry the kind of intelligence it would take to conquer space travel from planet to planet, and galaxy to galaxy, would also have learned from their mistakes of the past as well. Part of that is learning that war is not beneficial to anyone and thus, would not be a violent species. This would eliminate the theory of Mr. Hocking that what had happened back in the days of Christopher Columbus would not happen to us in such a historic event. For how ever much we have evolved from the days of Christopher Columbus, surely an extraterrestrial species that can travel through space would be much further along in their evolution as well. And it is my personal belief that the higher the intelligence, the lesser the violence. But that is just my personal belief, others may disagree.

That's not to say that there couldn't be a species of beings out there who wouldn't have a scientific curiosity about us. I'm sure there would be a deep interest for them to study us and our DNA make-up just as we would towards them. From a mental, physical and emotional aspect, they would want to discover what makes us tick just as we would them. If there would be any extraterrestrial fear, that fear would be directed to the fact that we humans are still quite the inferior species. We only use about 10 percent of our brains.  As intelligent as we think we are now, we haven't even scratched the surface of our potential. This would be a fear for them because we are still in our "war" phase as a species. It is more likely that we would want to "destroy" them more than they would want to eliminate us. We are still the violent breed.

 At the same time, I also understand that any being of any kind is biological in its design, and thus, will always be unpredictable because of that. But at their core, I think extraterrestrials would be more peaceful than Mr. Hocking theorizes.

Then again, I also subscribe to the "ancient alien" theory, which means, I believe we have not only been "discovered" but, and more to the truth, we were created from "their" image and or DNA.

It is my belief that we have been visited for tens of thousands of years. The evidence is all around us. The evidence also lives inside our own DNA. Well, that's what I believe anyway. And this would indicate, if true, that these visitors do not have evil intentions towards us, otherwise, we still wouldn't be here. In fact, I believe that these beings are protecting us, and perhaps have been aiding in our development.

I know it falls out there in 'left field', but again, I look all around this planet and I see all kinds of potential evidence that supports my belief. That and personal experience.

 Besides, if it did turn out that any higher intelligent species discovered us and wanted to eliminate us, it wouldn't be that difficult at all, and it certainly wouldn't be in the traditional way of war that we engage in today. Oh, no, they wouldn't even need to declare their presence. All they would have to do is send down viruses and diseases along with an asteroid or two and pretty much, we would be toast. And we wouldn't even know it was "them" who wiped us out.

So, this notion that a more intelligent species would do to us as we did to the Native Americans is really hard for me to swallow. Even if they wanted our resources, they could take them, little by little, without our knowledge. But here's another thing to ponder; there are a lot more planets out there with just as much resources as ours that are not even inhabited. It would be those planets that would be targeted first before any species would target earth, and go to war.

This is why you can cheer up! Aliens are not out to get us, nor would I figure they would be hostile towards us. Evolution should have taught us already that war is not the action of intelligence, but ignorance and stupidity. Any being which believes that death and destruction is progress is clearly not a very intelligent being. Nor is enslaving another race and or species. History has also taught us that this doesn't last very long in the aspects of time. Everything changes and everything evolves. In this evolution comes discovery and lessons that we should never forget. The one thing we have to come to terms with is that war is never the way of progress. Once our planet (and species) as a whole learns this then we will, as a species, be ready to stake our claim to the universe, and live side by side with other species from other planets in other galaxies. Once we can overcome our vanity, and greed, we will overcome our handicaps.
