Aliens are dangerous.
Just as Kenneth Grant has pointed out, the grey ones might not be our best friends in the vulgar sense of the word; in the sense that they want rid us of our fragmented and "shut up" mind.
Now Stephen Hawking joins the discussion, albeit from a "rational" and scientific perspective.
In a new documentary for British television, Hawking warns that communicating with intelligent alien lifeforms could be "too risky."
I hope you won't be offended, rzk, but I've moved your thread to the "Stuff" forum!

Ah.. Too bad. I think the other typhonians would have thought it fun.
I'm sure they will; well, probably!

I thought it was mildly interesting that Hawking acknowledges the likelihood of other "intelligent" species in the cosmos from his "mathematical" standpoint, as a scientist. The rest of his comments are, of course, speculative. The speculation conjures up an idea of how a particular species, invasive to our home planet, might approach us. From a "mathematical" standpoint, I think such speculation ought encompass more than one such "group" and readily acknowledge the probability of hostility, amiability and indifference, all of which are reported in direct occult investigations of non-terrestrial dimensions of consciousness.

Rees made a similar comment a while back. Unlike Hawking here, however, he suggests they're probably already staring us right in the face and we're just not aware of it due to there being aspects of reality that are beyond our capacities to comprehend, in the same way that a chimpanzee wouldn't quite get the gist of quantum mechanics, etc. He thus goes for the idea that they're vastly more advanced (even than the English). However, given the size of our local universe it doesn't seem to present to some of these individuals just how amazingly bizarre it would be if there wasn't other intelligent life-forms of one sort or another.
I liked this quote from the professor:
"We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn't want to meet."
He's got a point there. Just ask our fellow passengers.
As Bob Monkhouse used to say:
"Personally, I don't think there's intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?"
I had an conversation with a 69 year old gentleman at the weekend who became rather upset that I posited the conjecture in a discussion re., aliens; of the possibility of thei not being benevolent, he felt that any beings having advanced to a point of being capable of crossing the great sea, must by definition be more benevolently inclined towards the indiginous population. I didn't have the heart to bring up european expansion into the americas, and let the said gentleman wallow in idealism.
Was I wrong... probably, horses for courses.
This might be of interest, www.disclosureproject.org 2001 press conference.
Had a job in the MOD around 97 as a registry clerk.
A fax, or signals as they were called in the RAF, came across my desk addressed to Air Staff. This was to do with a curious incident reported by the Police, of a Black Triangle craft hovering silently over Marlow Buckinghamshire at 2am. The Manchester Police then reported the same thing five minutes later, but with a red glow present as well.
Blew me away at the time, very X Files.
“Just as Kenneth Grant has pointed out, the grey ones might not be our best friends in the vulgar sense of the word; in the sense that they want rid us of our fragmented and "shut up" mind.”
I would be more inclined to worry about the “Kanamits” and their possible ilk,
and not so much about the grey folk!
There will be no cause for lament upon meeting the grey ones.
It’s odd, that the moment I read what Hawkins said,
I immediately thought of that Twilight Zone episode “To Serve Man”---!!!
Even here on Earth, such appetites have existed…
in the past, as well as in these more “civilized” modern times.
It might be a bad thing---to be too delectable.
And, as an aside…after having visited this part of town,
to read this thread, then going on to eat breakfast…
upon saying Will, I shockingly realized that I was saying….
“It is my will to eat and drink, that I might fortify my mind and body,
to accomplish the grey work”!
Had to start over.
93! 93! 93!
Ironically, humans wish to contact other Intelligent Life mainly to understand themselves..
besides, there's a plethora of 'alien life' miles under our oceans- and they're murderous little fellas.
