Now then, if you can fathom what sort of advanced races can come from earth, imagine the possibilities of our solar system. Then recall that our solar system is young.. then think of all theother solar systems. Then galaxies.. It's absolutely OUTRAGEOUS to think we're the only oneshere. It's even MORE outrageous to believe that there is other life out there, and think we'reeven slightly superior to other potential races. From a theoretical perspective, I think anyoneelse can agree that the odds are... there is other life.
Ok, so there's other life out there. Where'd they come from then?
I see there being 3 options to this question. Either they're "ancient astronomers", they're fromother galaxies and systems, or both. If you don't know the "Ancient Astronomer" theory.. then just simply think of it as the way I mentioned above (at least it's my version of it). There havebeen many ample opportunities for earth to house life before us. Ancient Astronomers are simplyearlier earth-dwellers that left, and still return from time to time to "check up". As for whether or not they're from other galaxies.. well, I think that depends. If we can really surpass the speed of light, then why the hell not? If it IS impossible to go faster, than I can seethem still doing it but it's less likely. It would take a LONG time to hop from galaxy to galaxy if you can't pass the speed of light. I'm talking about millions to billions of years, or more, just traveling through nearly empty space. Talk about boring and.. not so efficient.
So why have we never been informed of them?
I think this is mainly a no-brainer. Do you really think the gov't would tell us if there WERE aliens? Honestly.. I believe even the gov't is misinformed (I'll get to that later though). But think about the consequences of being told there are aliens. First of all, there's religion. Many civilizations, some EXTREMELY large, are BASED off of religions. If word is released that we're not the only ones out there, this would just ruin a lot of peoples' views on religions, causing MASS chaos in everything including politics. I find it ironicthat existence of other life doesn't really go against many religions, as most are based off of usbeing the "son of God".. why can't God make things interesting and tell you that you have abrother you didn't know about? But back to the point.. If religion is big enough to cause major wars, then imagine what can happen when people begin challenging religion.Second, think of the fear. We've been grown and raised to think we're the only ones. If you werewalk into a hallway, and were shown 100 different species of aliens that have just recently visited earth, how would you react? Ya, there's always that feeling of THIS IS SWEET! But you'll be stricken with SO much fear as well. It's ok.. you can admit it. This fear will also cause HUGE riots and chaos. It would completely change everything for us. Laws will change, gov'ts will fall while others will rise, new factions will start up. Largest of all, we won't be looking at "terrorists" as being our biggest threat. Ohhh no.. if other aliens can come and land "personal" crafts on our turf, while we have no idea where a single other race lives, then obviously they areMUCH more advanced, and can just absolutely crush us.
