It is conceivable that humans could someday discover aliens. We scour the cosmos looking for their radio signals, and though we're not capable of interstellar space travel, it is remotely possible that we could find what we're looking for right here in our solar system.

Life could theoretically exist on Mars, or on Europa, a moon of Jupiter, which appears to have an underground ocean. It's even possible (though highly unlikely) that these nearby life forms could be sentient.

I'd want to grill one. I'll bet extraterrestrial meat is tasty.

Hmmmm a lot of what if’s here, sadly I’m going to say this  some people in dream world what they going to do when they see other race of beings here on earth or step in other planet for other reasons of their behalf. The percentage that some would spoke of there is  very low not even dear to have conversation with other beings that are not like your self’s nor ones that are similar that are like your self’s and those have the guts to go on and have contact other race beside your own race I well give you thumps up..

Other then that all I see here not many of you would carry those out when you face being face to face…

So think again before you say what if, and put your thoughts clearly before you put it out on the net..

I channel in order to dream, Inspiring intuition.
I seal the input of abundance, With the resonant tone of attunement.
I am guided by the power of vision.

Umm, let's see, I would first look puzzled, then I would defecate and urinate large amounts of doodies and wee-wee's in my pants and then I would proceed to run screaming like a fat little boy whom just had his ice cream cone stolen by a fast and nimble fat little British girl!

First of all, we have to consider how unimaginable vast the distances in our Universe are.
On top of that -  the Universe is expanding, meaning those light-year distances are getting  bigger and bigger every day.
No doubt there must be millions of planets with intelligent beings 'Out There'  !
However, due to the immense distances we will possibly never ever be able to meet them.

And even if we could, the chances of a peaceful meeting are slim to say the least.
Why?  Look at our history.
We can't even get along with our next door neighbour nation, or  with those who have a different skin color or religion.
I can only hope that any meeting with aliens will be in a far off future, because at the moment we are behaving like
spoiled, inmature little brats who can not even live in peace with ourselves.

So, perhaps in the future we will grow up and will be able to communicate in a decent and respectful way with
any alien race - and with ourselves.

How "first contact" ever worked out for any civilization that would be as inferior to anyone who actually has the technology to travel here would be to us?
Ask the last Brazilian jungle tribes how they "handle first contact" with Brazilian explorers with planes and guns...

The general attitude and sensibleness of the latter part of the linked article are good. It seems to represent an 'they find us' (on Earth) scenario. Given that situation, they might know more about us in advance than the article assumes. The idea that the discovering species will be millions (or more) years more advanced than we are is questionable. I suggest that we might be contacted by an emissary species near our own level of development, which lives in the immediate stellar neighborhood. They would assumably have been contacted already and given the opportunity to bring us into the galactic fold, as the next species ready for such contact.

It has already happened. This issue is moot.
