First Contact - how to respond to aliens
Today, on World UFO Day, I wanted to share this article from Futurism that I found today on Twitter, which claims that apparently, the UK Seti Research Network wants the average person to share how they would respond to a sign from an alien civilization.
As we know from a couple of movies and books, the outcome from those contacts isn't always that much in favour of the earthlings, so it might actually be quite useful to have a collection of opinions from all kinds of people, not only from scientists. I'd love to hear what people would propose to do if we were contacted by aliens.
The problem here is; how do you respond to something that none has ever experienced? Where no studies, no analytics exist?
And, if you're an Ancient Astronaut Theorist, the Nazca lines cannot be counted as a study. So I guess it will have to be figuring out what kind of extraterrestrials we are dealing with, and how we should respond to them. Maybe they are bacteria and wouldn't be able to talk the way we are used to.
And, of course, maybe they already observe us:)
Happy World UFO Day!🛸
What about you? What would be your response to a sign from an alien civilization? Share in the comments.
