    Perhaps that was a reference to a group of academic professionals called the Society for Historians of International Trade, or maybe an institution of higher learning in the Lone Star State known as the Sam Houston Institute of Teaching. Then again, it could have been an ape shelter up in Regina called the Saskatchewan Home for Itinerant Tree-dwellers… 😉

    What do you think is going to happen?

    Panic and Hysteria. If aliens are determined to be responsible for these “craft”.

    Personally, I’m hoping it will turn out to be a newly observed natural phenomena.

  3. If we were to find another inhabited world, would we want to attack it and kill its inhabitants?   I don’t think so.  So why do we assume beings from another planet would be hostile?

    Human nature and brainwashing from all the negative science fiction movies.

    The thing to worry about isn’t hostile—it’s oblivious.  If we were to encounter aliens with the capability of interstellar travel, it’s overwhelmingly probable they would be as far advanced beyond our species and civilisation as we are over, say, ants.  We don’t try to communicate with ants; we’re too far apart to have any meaningful conversation.  When we’re about to build a skyscraper or a dam which will flood a valley and destroy thousands of ant civilisations with tens of millions of individuals, we don’t consult with them or try to negotiate a mutually satisfactory compromise; we just go ahead with our plans.  So it might be with an alien race as far ahead of us as we are of ants.

    As artificial intelligence researcher Eliezer Yudkowsky said, speaking of human-developed artificial intelligence, “The AI does not hate you, nor does it love you, but you are made out of atoms which it can use for something else.”

    That’s really terrifying.  “As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods…”   And it’s interesting that in science fiction, extraterrestrials seem to be either like empathetic animals, like ET ( no not our ET!) or they’re robotlike, computerlike, which means they can be short circuited.

    But are we  Earthlings really that far away from intorstellar travel?

    And  we do notice ants; some of us, like Wilson, devote our lives to understanding them.  I’d also guarantee that if we came up with a plan to eliminate all ants from the planet (which actually sounds good to me at this time of year, when they come inside from the trees)  members of our species would not allow it to happen.

    Do you think that as a species advances intellectually, it grows more heedless, less and eventually completely UN sympathetic to other creatures?  On our planet, I’d say the reverse has happened.

    But on the other  hand, while we have these sensibilities, and even enact them into policies, I guess you’re right: we still swat insects without a single qualm.

    ok so G.D. is right: AAAAAAAUGH!! WE’RE  ALL GONNA DIE!
