So you want to be friends with space aliens?
So you want to be friends with space aliens? You need to ask yourself why. The typical reason is because it would be great for us to have their advanced technology.

But isn't this the same as wanting to be friends with billionaires, because it would be great to somehow get some of their money?

What kind of friendship is that?

To those who say "no, I just want to be friends with aliens because it would be awesome!" Then, here's some aliens you can try to be friends with:

Find a clique of fraternity guys or sorority girls/cheerleaders that you're not a part of, and try to be friends with them.

Go to Compton, California, and try to be friends with the street gangs there.

Neither group would likely be very easy to become friends with. The average person would probably fail miserably, because those people are too "alien" to them. Space aliens would be exponentially more "alien" than any of the above groups of fellow humans.

Furthermore, look at it from the space alien's point of view. For them to actually WANT to be friends with you, it would be similar to you going a special education classroom full of mentally challenged/special needs people just to be friends with them. "Hi Benny! This thing is called an iPhone 5. It cost me $650. I'll give it to you so you can play with it. Have fun!"

How likely would that scenario really be?

How often have you actively sought out mentally challenged people to be friends with in your lifetime? Or, like the average person, do you instead try to avoid any and all contact with those kind of people if you can possibly help it? With that in mind, is it really any wonder why space aliens don't make themselves openly known to us?

Now, tell us about how you want to be friends with space aliens.

Re: So you want to be friends with space aliens?
If you want to be friends with aliens reach out to them mentally first. Conciousness is universal and in its pure form is the least alien aspect between people.

But yes being friends physically with them is difficult for the reasons OP described. My attitude from a ship would be "Oh ok you want to talk that's cool......what? No I'm not coming down there you come up here."

People either want their space gadgets or space sex. I wouldn't complain if such things were offered but I seriously doubt they'd ever occur so I'm not wishing for it.

Re: So you want to be friends with space aliens?
people need to stop thinking about what others can do for them.

the fact of the matter is, the world as we (humans - since thats what i consider myself lol) know it has progressed to something far greater than what our ancestors could have imagined ... obviously there is a need for both alien & human life ..... people need to rid themselves of hate, learn to accept what the world has PROGRESSED TO, and learn to start working together.

technology is something amazing that allows to do things we could never do ... as is human life. why destroy one, or both, just because a few people cant get along????

Re: So you want to be friends with space aliens?
The only reason that I would like to be friends with an alien species would be from plain curiocity. You know, to see the form of their society, ways of learning, communication, etc etc. It will also be a way for understanding the human race and myself and part of it.

It would be the first time someone who is not human to form an opinion about us by observation and actually be able to transfer his/her opinion back to us, so that would be cool.

 Quoting: Janine69


I think the noble thing to do would be to study them from afar and interfere with/contaminate them as little as possible.

But if corporate/greed interests were thrown into the mix, therein would come raping their planet for minerals and using the inhabitants as study specimens/enslavement. Its what the Europeans did to the inhabitants of the Americas on discovery. Their prime motivation for exploring was gold and riches, after all.

This is a great question, Janine. Our history shows time and time again, that the more advanced human culture tends to conquer and/or take control of the lesser/primitive culture they encounter.

Would we do this now in the context of meeting an alien race? I hope not, I'd like to think we've moved past that. However I do feel that other advanced extra terrestrial civilizations would look at us as an easy target to exploit.

Re: So you want to be friends with space aliens?
Partly failed reasoning.

WE are space aliens too but we are dumbed down the elite by LIES and poisons straight into food in order to keep us enslaved while THEY have ALL the real power.

Also, your f:ing aliens come here to steal DNA from certain people and rob the planet from resources without trading/paying.

Once I thought there were "friendly" aLIEns, but now I believe they are not really friendly at all, they are pretty convenient with our suffering; they are not even able to set up a PIRATE RADIO STATION (on orbit) so that they could present themselves and help us break out from the Matrix.

With some restoration and healing we could easily match them in every way.
