Is there reading between abstruse lines of the *other*? Can we guess at the secrets with which they are blessed? Or's it curses encountered they'd sooner be shed of — of existence they're tired and "living" detest?
Could the tree of their empire be rooted in tyranny? Is it terror they seek to instill — sowing infamy?
What is their purpose? why do they haunt? What are their reasons? What do they want?
What do they take? How do they live? What is their work? What can they give?
...What do they do? It's all such a tangle. How are they recompensed — what is their angle?!
Perhaps they're a mirror held back at ourselves! We see in them us and it's us that compels. Compelled by abduction — it's what we'd expect! Why, we'd do it to them! It's that they detect!
You'd have to admit that they're nicer than we'd be. We'd treat 'em like bugs, or at best, a prized queen bee. We've done it before, our history's filled with examples of cruelty, to those we then kill: Persons made subject to "short sighted" judgments; those deemed unworthy of compassioned abutment? We've sliced them and diced them for simple percentage; "exploited, used up" — we've snatched that advantage!
If the ET comes to you — are you learning? Are you clued? Don't waste your time in horror or disgust! Is there method in the "madness," or are you crippled by your sadness because exploded, friend, is that which held your trust?
Don't bemoan their nameless tactics or mysterious detachment, its your culture that’s the one to keep you down! The ET's are a shadow from the whole of what's unknown... too, might likely usurp culture... by putting smiles over frowns!
See, it's your culture making tears, it's your culture breeding fear! It's your culture at the root of mocking laughter. It sets the tone for your derision... and it's culture's lack of vision that is truly your tormentor and detractor.
Like, define for me "success," and an easy, spot on, guess would be space flight for a species or a race. Live in structures WE enjoin between the stars that WE employ, and have humankind extant across an awesome... "timeless" space!
Note our lack of this "success," and further note profound distress, as we poison our environs; I'll be frank... ...we are hanging by a thread; a bug or rock could strike us dead; we are by no means successful; you might take that to the bank...
If we want ET respect? We should deserve it, I suspect! We could clean up, first, our act, right here on Earth! We should end our petty tyrannies, be empowered individually — be a synergy much greater... than we were!
See, the individual's now disdained, a manipulated brain — programmed by 'the man' to do his bidding. Though the day will come, and soon, then we'll find we've got more room... as the multi-verse unfolds ... it will be fitting!
