Is it that different than "I'd like to speak to your manager?"

Why do we assume that aliens have "individuals" the same way we do? Even on Earth, that isn't true across all species. Many types of insects have types that only do work. Others rule. Others breed. Others scout. And LOTS of species on Earth are very individualistic, seeking other members only long enough to reproduce. Could a higher civilization evolve from such concepts? If so, what might they look like?




It's certainly possible.




Again, it's possible. But who knows? It's just speculation. It's equally possible that extraterrestrial visitors aren't visiting because of us at all. Maybe they are here to see the butterflies or the octopus or hedgehogs or bacterial colonies. Maybe we are just a backwoods "pit stop" on the way to somewhere else, a place where they pull over to let their pet Bigfoot relieve itself before they head off to another star. Who knows?

C.S. Lewis's space trilogy had an interesting idea that I am surprised no one has played with since. Each planet had its own "guardian angel" type of being. Earth's angel (Lucifer) "went bad," so Earth is "off limits" to the rest of the cosmos.

It is entirely possible that the cosmos is full of advanced civilizations, and they know enough about Earth to give us a wide berth till we get our mess cleaned up.

But again, this is all speculation. Sure could make for some great science fiction though.
Many people that have claimed to have physical interactions with 'the grays'...say they are like drones/worker bees, some even say they are like a kind of biological robot. They are not individuals with their own personalities, they all work as one, and I assume are directed by something above them.

Yep, this is my feeling, too. As soon as they get a good look, they say, "No intelligent life there, let's check out another solar system."

A group of UFOs were reported hovering over the White House in the 1950's. Obviously that group of ET needed
no help in finding "the leader". Intergalactic GPS?
Hollywood tried to present the logical outcome with
The Day the Earth Stood Still.

POTUS - Oh God!!

What if they were there to talk to the cleaning crew? Or Caacie and Telek?

My mother saw those UFOs fly over Washington in 1952. They flew over DC, not hover over the White House. And they did it on two occasions, both times tracked by both Andrews and Bolling Air Force Bases. "The Day the Earth Stood Still" was released the year before in 1951.

Why do they need anyone to take them to our leader? I don't have access to Biden or the White House.

Besides, if they can figure out how to get here, they are going to find pretty quickly how to find the White House, Parliment, etc.

I once saw this comic strip showing a field of cows grazing. In the middle of the field of grazing cows was a landed UFO with an alien standing on the ground at the end of a ramp with its right hand up saying "Take me to your leader"....I thought it was funny..

I am aware of the release date of TDTESS.

Imo, the govt probably entered into some kind of contract with these things in or about that year/time frame.
