If I met them somewhere out in space I don’t know that I would be telling them where we live (until after much probing). 1. If you think about seriously, the alien you are probably meeting is the top of the food chain on their planet making them the apex predator. If they are the apex predator they at least at one point must have been super aggressive and probably still are. With this in mind I believe there will be no dropping you off except maybe back at their planet. 2. Friendly expansion is only friendly to those expanding.… Read more »

TL but I read it anyway. In response: 1. Not necessarily. As a species, we weren’t even at the top of the food chain until our brains developed enough to out-think the creatures that were: lions & tigers & bears oh my.

Dont you think theyd see our cities and cars and at least be able to figure out we have mechanical engineering? Pythagoreans theorem? Gimme a break! Yeah, the cell phone im carrying wont tell you shit about my species ability to think with math, let me draw you a right triangle. And our outer-space telescopes and massive satellite dishes wont clue them into our knowledge of astronomy a bit. The starship Enteprise could figure that out about us.
