    Hi guys, just watched Preston Dennett's [always interesting] new video in which it concerns people actually conversing with Extraterrestrials.....


    ... And whether you believe any of the claims in the presented four cases of alleged conversations with the Alien-visitors ... the point of his video is to make you think just what [if anything] you would like to ask these amazing visitors? ... and I thought it would be a good idea to ask everyone here what might they be tempted to ask if you were in a position to speak directly with an alien being? ... Personally I fear that my head would explode from the massive rush that a billion questions would come instantly! ... but if not, then of course i'm not really sure which of the multitude of questions would stumble out first... but I strongly suspect that I would be more than eager to ask if they could help with any super medical attention for my disabled son. :Thumbsup: ... what would you ask?


    Cheers.

    I think my first question would be, 'how many other intelligent species have they discovered during their travels in the galaxy and what percentage of those are able to travel to different worlds?'...

    I think the first thing I would ask is how and why did you end up on a planet in the solar system at the edge of the furthest spiral arm in the galaxy.

    I would ask a couple of questions. First, are you coming to our planet to help yourself to our natural resources. Also, point out to me what star constellation are you coming from and describe your home planet. Lastly, how far off are humans spiritually and technically from yourselves.

    Michio Kaku thinks it's a bad idea to attempt contact with ET...

    Michio Kaku: 'Reaching out to aliens is a terrible idea'

    (Excerpt)

    Soon we’ll have the Webb telescope up in orbit and we’ll have thousands of planets to look at, and that’s why I think the chances are quite high that we may make contact with an alien civilisation. There are some colleagues of mine that believe we should reach out to them. I think that’s a terrible idea. We all know what happened to Montezuma when he met Cortés in Mexico so many hundreds of years ago. Now, personally, I think that aliens out there would be friendly but we can’t gamble on it. So I think we will make contact but we should do it very carefully.

    I did want to comment on one part of the video, about 30 minutes into it...He mentions that the aliens told him the name of their planet and the name of their species but both names were long and spoken in a language he couldn't understand so he forgot how they were spoken...However a couple minutes later he says the aliens also told him they could speak all the languages of earth, so couldn't they have said the names of their species and planet in a language he could understand?...I understand there may not be an easy nor equivalent way of translating their language to ours but surely for two words, two names, they could have improvised something since they came all this way and even revealed themselves to someone...Would they have known our designation or name for their star and if so they could have spoken that to him?...

    Just thinking out loud lol...

    Nice thread.
    I did a thread about contact with the UFOnauts long ago.
    I would ask what they know about other visitors that have come and gone from our Earth, and what they know about the Multiverse.

    I think I would ask them about their beliefs on the afterlife and reincarnation. Assuming that they seemed friendly, I would also ask if we could visit again in the future.

    Hi Nivek, hope you are well my friend :Thumbsup: ... Yes, I also noted that [and a couple more things about Kevin's story] ... and as I mentioned earlier, it's not that I intended to endorse any of the Preston-presented-claims , I merely used this video as a vehicle for the premise of the thread. Because as you know mate, i'm not the world's biggest cheerleader for the genre's phenomenal amount of Alien Abduction claims.
    ... And I also forgot to mention that I also think [wrongly or rightly] that the actual appearance of the Aliens would probably have a tangible bearing on what we might 'ask of our visitors'. ... Suffice to say that the more at ease we might feel, the easier some of the more 'sensitive questions' be to ask about. eg. "are you a anthropophagist ?", or "do you believe in the practice of oppression over inferior species?" [as we do] ... you get my drift, but once that's all sorted then the rest should be plain sailing , as they say. ... And when all's said and done, the truth is that no matter the duration and amount of visits that these initial 'early-contacts' there could be , at least 99% of the questions posed to 'the visitors' would have very strong "what can I get out of this?' connotations from the inquisitor at some point of the conversation. ... And "hell!, why not, it's human nature!" .... and no matter how much anyone would like to profess innocence in this regard, that's just the way it is. :Tongue:

    Cheers Buddy.

    Thanks for posting mate - off to watch.

    Did see there was an account as far back as 1940 where an Aussie miner had a chat with UFO occupants who were collecting water through a tube.

    See 8:30



    Cheers.

    Probably find a better way to put it but 'what do you want' would be a good one to put at the top of the list

    Some stranger knocks at your front door that's what I want to know, not how they got here. I guess maybe the spaceship and squishy eyestalks might give pause first .......

    You do know that an AI solution would be to wipe out humans, right?

    Some have attempted to convince me but the others held my feet while I began to float upwards.

    This is a key point, an inconvenient truth, that definitely the visitor's appearance would have a direct influence over what would be asked and said during the conversation if there's a conversation at all...If the visitors were scary looking creatures dripping acid from their mouths like the creatures in the Aliens movies, then I doubt there would be any conversation at all lol...However if their appearance was more appealing to our eyes then a human of earth would feel more comfortable engaging in conversation with them...

    I think it comes down to who finds who.

    They come to us unannounced and we find that they knew we were here then I think we would seek to undermine them and retake our spot as number one. If we find them we would make subtle contact and things would have a chance.

    If they look as we do there would be an immediate divide and then all us indigenous would be on the same side as a bigger fish has turned up for frying.

    We can't even get along with ourselves properly so I would hazard a guess we would ultimately seek to eradicate any other with the smarts to hone in in us.

    Here's an interesting interview concerning this topic of conversing with aliens if/when they land on our world...

    If Aliens Landed Tomorrow, Could We Communicate with Them?

    An interview with Dr. Arik Kershenbaum, author of "The Zoologist's Guide to the Galaxy: What Animals on Earth Reveal About Aliens—and Ourselves."

    It’s difficult for some of us not to allow our minds to wander toward scenarios where we’ve finally answered the ultimate question. Are we alone in the universe? Will we ever make first contact with a non-human, off-world intelligence? Even more intriguing is the question of whether or not we would even be able to communicate with aliens should the ever arrive.

    Barring some incredible technological advancement such as Star Trek’s universal translator or finding a convenient fish you can stick in your ear like Arthur Dent, if we want our relationship with a potential extraterrestrial intelligence to be productive, we’ll have to figure out a way to talk to each other. Without having any aliens hanging about to use as test subjects, the only other examples of non-human intelligence available to chat with are other terrestrial animals, such as chimps, dogs, birds, or, one of the most popular candidates, dolphins. The results thus far have been, I am sorry to report, less than promising.

    That’s why I was thrilled to be able to interview author and University of Cambridge zoology researcher Dr. Arik Kershenbaum. Dr. Kershenbaum is an expert in animal vocal communication and the evolution of language. Throughout his career, he has studied the vocalizations of wolves along with dolphins and other cetaceans. But he has also delved into the question of human communication with aliens, mainly in a hypothetical fashion. He’s the author of a new book, “The Zoologist’s Guide to the Galaxy: What Animals on Earth Reveal About Aliens—and Ourselves,” making him the ideal person to tackle these questions. The Debrief invited Dr. Kershenbaum to discuss the possibility of intelligent alien life, why it’s so hard to talk to the animals, the nature of language, and even subjects as far afield as telepathy. Here is what Dr. Kershenbaum has to say.


    CAN WE COMMUNICATE WITH ALIENS?

    Would anyone leave and go with the visitors if offered and knowing up front it may be a one way trip?...Leap of faith or would this be too big a leap?...
