Would you be upset, as we would no longer be The only one?

excited, afraid, angry, ???  what would your feelings be?

I would be excited, and more than a little apprehensive.

Since we have very, very recently made it into space, these beings would probably be FAR more advanced than we are. What would they think of us?  Would they regard us as awfully primitive savages?  They might have good reason to think so.  :(

I doubt that they would want anything to do with us, other than for Sport. Like I've said elsewhere, they've been coming here for a long time and I sure don't want to meet up with one of these!

Hi Korvo,

Well I would prolly just continue on my way in life as usual, without much reaction either direction. Actually, if I were to guess I would say it is likely that contact already HAS been made, and we do not even know it...

Yes, I understand it first happened almost 80 years ago. :P
