Visitor Seeks Help: "Ok here it is.
What if for some weird cosmic joke we here on
Earth are the first sentient life forms in the
universe? What does that mean? Are we searching
for something that doesn't exist anywhere else?
What are our responsibilities as the first? What
does that mean in regards to UFO's? Are we
seeing things that are not there? What do we do
if we finally find someone else who is farther
behind than us? What do we teach them and not
teach them? The only real answer I can find is
it is funner to have a more advanced race in the
universe than us. Someone who will teach us how
to overcome our weaknesses. Fix problems we
haven't figured out ourselves. But does it being
funner make it true?" by Roy Aspinwall. If you
