Why Aliens have not openly contacted earth governments.

They are not here to save us.
They are not here to invite us to join the galactic federation.
They are not here to share their advanced knowledge with us.

They are here to collect specimens and get safely away before the planet becomes uninhabitable.

Their predictive modelling software is much more advanced than ours and they have known for quite some time, possibly a century or two, that we are facing climate disaster and social and economic self-destruction. They know good and well that this is a dying civilization, and they are here just to watch and preserve some DNA samples and live specimens. That's all. So don't look for them to contact us any time soon. Or ever, for that matter.

21. Hey, nice gif. This is the perfect description of the Republican party:



They Live - The Sell out

Sound familiar?

...Most of us just sell out right away, then all of sudden we get promoted, our bank accounts get bigger, we start buying new houses, cars, perfect.

We'll do anything to be rich...

It's in their best interests, they're free enterprisers, the Earth is their third world...

We could be pets, we could be food, but all we really are is livestock...


Depressed yet?

5. I have heard that

there is interest among the aliens in breeding hybrid species. For whatever purposes. Slaves, maybe?

15. Well

 

There are lots of stories and experiences (from the general category of experiences during "altered states of conscience") of some "aliens" or members of "spirit world" doing that. Remember that "aliens" is just one cultural interpretation for very similar experiences that seem to be happening in many cultures. There are very similar stories about "elves" from middle ages.

What is interesting is that there seem to be some evolution happening, as the experiences about "encounters" seem to be generally changing into more understanding and compassionate and loving. There are now more and more stories about experiences of being called to share human comfort and tenderness with the "hybrid" children.

Many children - and also adults - have various "imaginary friends", which are interpreted also as "guardian angels", "spirit guides" etc. according to various cultural interpretations of these experiences. And also according to academic studies these experiences produce genuine psychological etc. help and learning, so the communication - how ever we interpret the "reality" of those communicated with - is in that sense meaningful and generally beneficial.

6. We live in a zoo and as such are treated as a theme park for intergalactic entertainment. And

occasionally the vacationers get a little too close and we catch glimpses of them. And some theme parks eventually fall apart ... due to rot and neglect. I fear that's the path we're on ... and damn, I have a hard time convincing myself otherwise.

8. Personally I think it should be considered that they're hostile

The disabling of the nuclear silos which were well documented and witnessed by reliable sources may indicate a hostile intention.

http://blip.tv/ufocommunity/ufo-national-press-club-conference-4192861

Its all speculation, but the Nazis planned Barbarossa for nearly 10 years before executing it - imagine taking over an entire planet? Meh, I'm nuts, I know, but I've studied this for going on a decade and when reliable military personnel all over the world report this stuff.

Like the grownup taking guns away from children.

10. I know that's the popular theory about it

And it may be right for all I know. Roswell crash site was at the nation's first nuclear bomber wing, etc. They do seem to take interest in our nukes, though. The question is why.

Good analogy though - taking guns away from children. Timely too. Never heard it put that way before.

11. My best guess is...

 

(assume they exist)
They are totally objective.
They have scientific curiosity about our species, but no interest one way or the other in what happens to us.
Since they have no reason to care what happens to us we would call them "amoral".
They do not have hostile intent, because if they wanted to conquer us we'd already be their slaves.
The truth is they just don't give a shit what happens to us, as long as they can watch it unfold and document it for the sociologists back on their home planet.

16. If we look at "evidence"

 

ie. various stories experiences and what is common in them in all the variety, there are lot's of "species" with different qualities. The "grays" are usually experienced and described as very rational, "objective" and "scientific". The "grays" are also usually perceived to be the species involved with child kidnapping (especially older stories about "elves"), hybrid breeding etc. This could represent scientific etc. interest in human emotions.

In that case it could be also that they are partly or fully just subconscious symbols of the rational aspect of human minds.

26. what makes you think they are interested in our species.

 

It's possible they have all ready made contact with the most intelligent life forms on the planet.

Because he's a fantasy character just like them.

17. And those assigned to the North America sector probably complain a lot about feeling

dumber after having studied US politics. If that's their introduction to humanity, no doubt they are disgusted with us and would do anything to ensure we don't pollute more planets with that sort of thinking. Here they are, a species that was able to pull themselves out of the cocoon of their own planet and then they have to sit and watch while we make a complete mess of our own. Still, if all they did was sit and watch us destroy ourselves, it reveals that it doesn't take empathy or compassion to master space flight. Only have to be smart enough not to mess up your own life support system.
