It is said that the most intelligent creature born in planet Earth is a human being. It is said that the main characteristic of a human being is its capability of feelings; love, hate, distrust, confusion, etc.
Is it the capability of feelings proper and unique of human beings? Dogs can experience the same feelings at a lower degree, yet they aren’t considered humans.
At the other hand, there are “humans” that, throughout history, have shown very little “humanity” by their actions towards other fellow humans.
So what about extraterrestrial beings? If they aren’t considered humans since they weren’t born on Earth, but somewhere else in the universe, does it means they are not considered capable of love? (Being love a human characteristic?).
But if they have the capabilities of love (which they should have), then shouldn’t they be considered humans? Unless the capability of love is not a characteristic proper of a human being, or should I say, an Earthling?
In that case, feelings would not be the characteristic of being human, but just one of its properties.
So then, should we greet an extraterrestrial being as a fellow human? Or should we consider ourselves as human or not, mostly depending on our own actions, and not just because we were born in this planet?

They are out there, they circle around the skies in their mighty flying machines, but they hide from us. They are watching us!
They have been changing us from the beginning with their own seed, watching the outcome of their experiments throughout the centuries and doing adjustments accordingly, checking us from time to time, taking some of us for a short time to see where exactly we are.
There are many paintings from the past about “Them”, many drawings on caves. They have been around since the beginning. So many pictures taken, so many films recorded; most of that can be fake, people trying to get famous or make some money, but it takes just one to be true to prove they exist.
How much is the government hiding? Do they know?
They are out there taking care of us, watching us as big brothers, waiting for us to grow enough to stop wars, to stop selfishness, to become old enough to understand finally that we are children of the cosmos, so become brothers together as we suppose to be.
Then “They” will come down and invite us to join them in the Big Reunion. Then we’ll finally get to meet them and be part of the whole, the universe.
In the meantime we have to keep growing since we are not ready yet. We are children as a race. Earth is a kindergarten and the human race behaves as its children. We need to learn the basics and stop fighting each other or feeling envy for what others have.
Several thousand years more we will be ready, grown enough, mature enough. In some several thousand years more we’ll stop wars as a way of fixing our problems and leave aside our conquering desires.
Only then they will see us as mature enough, as a developed race to the point of being worth to contact, only then they will consider inviting us to join them to be at their side, but for as long as we keep this behavior of violence, self interest and wars for personal gain they will remain aside. They will keep hiding.
If they came down now people would call the military instead of the representatives, governments would try to get their technology for weaponry knowledge and power instead of creating solutions to sicknesses and problems of hunger, to get them as allies for other’s control instead of
planetary health and balance.
They will keep hiding until we are grown enough.
We still see each other as complete strangers when clothing, language or religion is different, even if we are the same race, and when the body is different we become terrified!
We are not ready, we keep doing movies of monster aliens coming to conquer us and eat us! And we always solve those proposed situations with violence.
They will keep hiding, we are not ready yet, but some day we will, and we’ll be part of the universe, without differences between us or them, we will be one with the universe, as we suppose to be!

They were waiting for me…I know.
The night was too silent, too quiet!
I could feel some sort of shiver in my back while driving.
At some point decided to turn on all the lights in my van; just a precaution!
Or maybe it was fear, I don’t know.
The empty street seemed to extend forever, the houses were obscured and silent, no one around.
My heart was beating at a faster pace every second!
But I just kept driving, afraid and excited with anticipation, poisoned with fear and curiosity.
The engine was running smooth and powerful, the stereo was playing a soft melody, and all the needles in the instrument panel were stable, like holding position afraid to move!
Then it happened!
The engine died! The lights went off and the stereo fell silent; the van coasted to a halt.
My heart was racing! I could feel my skin itching. Eyes wide open and some drops of cold sweat running off my forehead.
I don’t know how long I remained seated in the vehicle before I was able to get enough courage to open the door and venture outside.
I can’t remember all the details, just some images, like an old black and white movie.
It seemed that time was standing still.
No sounds, no movements.
I started to walk with no direction, no destination, like under hypnosis.
I could feel my body, myself, my thoughts.
There was something there, someone!
Walked for a mile or two, I don’t know.
Walked like a robot, a machine.
Walked without looking back.
Walked without showing my fears, my doubts, my curiosity.
Walked to an open space.
Walked to a halt!
Dark, silent, motionless night.
Then light! Warmth, excitement!
Light from above!
No sound, no noise, no nothing!
Silently it moved to my right, then drop to the ground.
Something was there, I could feel it!
Like a hum, a very smooth vibration in the air.
A sweet, almost imperceptible sound that went across my body and relaxed me,
an unknown feeling that comforted my mind and fears.
Then light again!
A vertical, rectangular door of light to my right was growing from nowhere!
No…there was something! I could barely distinguish a silhouette of some sort around the light; a shape.
Like an oblong figure.
Like two dishes facing each other, one standing on the ground, the other on top, the rectangular light in the middle.
I was shaking, yet comforted, afraid yet reassured, worried, yet excited!
Then I saw it!
A shape in the light!
A body; someone, some sort of being coming out of the light.
Or maybe it was just a person walking thru a door, I don’t know.
A defined shape, a body, looking at me while walking to me!
He stopped walking when reaching about forty feet from me.
Just there, just standing, just looking at me!
A dark silhouette surrounded by intense light.
Fear, excitement, cold sweat in me.
How long? One minute? Twenty minutes? One second? I don’t know.
Images raced thru my head!
Feelings crossed my body!
Heat and cold.
Darkness and light.
Fear and happiness.
Excitement and boredom.
He turned around and walked back to the light.
I could see the shape going away.
I could feel my body being drained.
I couldn’t move.
No thoughts, no feelings.
Just standing there!
Everything went dark.
Every feeling was shut off.
Like someone’s life terminated!
I don’t remember what happened next.
I was seating in my van.
The engine was running smoothly.
The stereo was playing a soft melody.
The needles were stable.
I was looking forward, motionless.
I checked the gear lever. It was in Park.
Changed to Drive and started driving.
Finished my delivery shift.
Went to bed.
I couldn’t sleep.
I don’t know what happened.
I don’t know if it was real or just my imagination.
I can’t remember more details.
This morning the phone ringed.
It was a salesman offering something.
He waked me up.
I was tired, needed more sleep.
I was mad!
The mirror in the bedroom exploded!
Did I do that?!
What’s happening to me now?!!
