I have a few questions to any and all alien races in the cosmos and a statement to human kind. This is the science-fiction writer in me who has always wanted to believe that alien life exists in the universe. We cannot be the only intelligent life in the universe. We just fucking can’t, the universe is too damn big.
This all comes after watching the Russian interviewer Sophie Shevardnadze talk with former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer. It is a fantastic interview lasting a little over twenty minutes where he confirms the existence of extra terrestrial life forms visiting out planet. This is significant for a few reasons but mostly because it’s coming from such a high and respectable source.
Thats the link. I recommend you watch it if you’re interested in such things. After watching it I am completely hooked in wanting to know more. While Sophie did ask some descent questions, and Mr. Hellyer gave some good answers, it was entirely too vague.
This is where my questions come in. He mentioned there are many different alien species that are currently visiting or have visited our world. Naming the ‘Nordic Blondes’ and the ‘Tall Whites’ as just two examples. Those absolutely and unequivocally can NOT be what the aliens official names are. It sounds as if you’re just describing what they look like. They have to have an official designation or name that they call themselves in their native language. I am classified as a Human from planet Earth in the Sol System. That classification fits every man woman and child born on planet Earth. That is what we call ourselves, that is how we would introduce ourselves if shaking the hand of an alien upon first contact. I want hear what that greeting is from a Nordic Blonde. Or a Tall White. Or a Short Grey. Or any of the other species that are visiting our planet. Name and planet of origin in your own tongue please. If we are to join the interstellar ranks we need to start calling these people by their real names.
Interstellar ranks brings me to my next question. Mr. Hellyer mentions that there is an actual interstellar ‘Federation’ of sorts that consists of groups of all of the major alien species. This must mean that this group of aliens – at least the friendly ones / we hope – have a massive council and are able to peacefully coexist with each other.
If multiple alien species are able to do that – we as human beings really need to get over our petty differences and stop killing each other over stupid things and religion. How else are we ever to hope to be invited to join the ranks of the Federation and take our seat as peaceful representatives of humanity?
Which ties me in to another point he made. Apparently our weapons of mass destruction scare these species. Because if we aren’t good at anything else we really are good at killing each other. Which is so incredibly stupid. Our knack for mass destitution and murder scare these aliens. They are afraid we will spread destruction across the universe. Which, to be fair, is a completely valid point. Stop killing each other guys. Seriously. Mr. Hellyer mentioned that aliens would be happy to share agricultural technologies with us. Medical technologies. (I don’t know about you but I’d love for my smartphone to have a week of battery life and you know DAMN WELL they have the technology for that.) But all we would end up doing is probably finding more creative ways to kill ourselves.
To any aliens that happen to read this: not all of us are complete morons and want to kill each other. Some of us genuinely want to learn about how things are done beyond the borders of our planet. I, myself, am one of them. Please don’t punish all of humanity for the sins of some.
Mr. Hellyer also mentioned that there are some aliens that are willing to work with us. Apparently the sight of some aliens are completely shocking and take time to get used to. I am willing to put in the time. If there is some sort of cultural exchange program please sign me up. I would love to learn all I could about anything that you could teach me.
Speaking of teaching, he also mentioned that some aliens are living right here in our solar system. Some on Mars, some on one of the moons of Saturn. Apparently someone was transported to a moon of Saturn. That is one long-range transporter system that I would like to meet. Seriously. For lack of the actual term, beam me up. (I hate myself for using that phrase.)
The thing that kept coming up is free choice. We have to willing to accept help. Accept them in to our lives. While I agree that not all of human kind is ready to accept help from Extra Terrestrials, I certainly am. I have watched Star Trek my entire life and have always grown with the idea that we are not alone. I, right now, am publicly asking any friendly alien race to please make contact with me. Show me your worlds. Let me travel the stars, see the Federation, learn from you and your planets history. Help me better understand how to be a better person and help move my species along.
To my fellow human beings: stop blowing other human beings up and killing them because you disagree with them. Its just rude. Maybe Mr. Hellyer is just making it all up. But maybe… just maybe… he’s not.
If you have any alien experiences / stories / resources / or contacts, please fill me in.
