Maybe we’re just not ready for the UFOs to arrive. It’s possible the aliens know this and have so far kept their distance. Are we prepared to no longer be Alpha Dog, a step down on the food chain, an inferior civilization in the face of one which can travel across the vastness of space? It’s intriguing to think about: how do the aliens view us? Will we ever be worthy of their respect and friendship, to be treated as equals, or are we doomed to remain an interesting but crude life-form to them, suitable for probing and studying, but that’s it?
