Why on Earth

if the moon were to speak
would it not be humbling
all our howlings rebounding

For the benefit of anyone who would like an explanation, the above poem suggests what we might collectively feel like when an advanced intelligence physically visits our mostly self focused little “pale blue dot” of a planet. They could be from the far reaches of outer space or they could be from Heaven which is close in heart to many of us. Either event will be an eye opening experience!

Some evidence indicates that we are being observed by technically advanced intelligence and have been for a number of years.

Why aren’t we communicating with them? Since our extraterrestrial visitors are technically advanced, they would hold the key.

Maybe they are struggling with the instability of our culture. Humans are not all trustworthy. How would WE approach a being from another world if given the chance? Would we be calm and polite? Or would we fear and corrupt the outcome?

Many of us humans constantly look to take advantage of others. It seems a number of us believe that our own gratification is more important than anyone else’s well-being. I expect an advanced intelligence would realize that and possibly see us collectively as a danger to their OWN culture. So perhaps that’s why they are keeping their distance.

Also, we humans are tremendously diverse with our individual and independent brain function physiology. I wonder if their “brain” function physiology is drastically different from ours. We are individually unique. Maybe they are not. Maybe they are acutely and uniformly telepathic. We certainly are not outside of divine intervention.

With a great enough difference, there could be an insurmountable challenge in how to communicate with each other.

We for the most part have shown ourselves to react with irrational and erratic behavioral tendencies regarding outer space visitors.

Our instability and self-centered behavior could be a communication roadblock to them. Perhaps they fear us greatly and are merely interested in observing our culture. It could be that for them, Earth is a place not to be intimately interacted with but simply studied.

Perhaps we are just not civilized enough for safe contact with advanced extraterrestrial beings.

Bridging

I know many of us would love more direct contact with advanced intelligence but many of us would be dreadfully fearful.

If the extraterrestrials observe Earth from their vantage point as one human culture, they see a neurotic collective to be feared, healed or else avoided.

Perhaps they realize our plight and that evil wanders to and fro over the earth devouring souls because we let it.

If enough of us work towards defeating evil by following God’s inspiring Word and obeying His commands, maybe they will start communicating with planet Earth.

“Do not call conspiracy everything this people calls a conspiracy; do not fear what they fear, and do not dread it.” Isaiah 8:12 NIV

Except for some unavoidable honey-dos, I pretty much goof off for a living now. My last career job was designing internet operating circuit boards along with a distinguished team of engineers, managers and support personnel. Prior to that I was an electronics technician evolving into circuit board design in the defense industry working with tactical missile systems. My first career job was a professional artist. During my younger years I worked many odd jobs beginning at age nine with a newspaper delivery route.
