That's what I said, yo.

Seems incredibly inefficient to have human labor and then have to transport the fruits back to your home world.

Have you not seen the episode of Family Guy "The Road To The Multiverse" the one where they went to the universe that never had Christianity? I know that its just a cartoon but they had a good point when they said that the technology is 100-200 years more advanced because science wasn't banned a few hundred years ago. If an alien race didn't ban science their civillisation could just as old as ours but with technology 100-200 years more advanced.

What would you do?

I'm pretty sure we would colonize and destroy. And I think the idea that we'd find a species of equal or greater intelligence who would also have MORE compassion than we have as a species would be extremely unlikely.

If anything, I think we're more likely to find insect-like aliens that don't have compassion at all, a la Zerg.
You are right, even though I would hope neither scenario came into play. The quote "Survival of the fittest" comes to mind. Funny part about it is, we may all be COMPLETELY wrong about everything we know/suspect about the universe. Anything is possible, because there is so much we do not understand. There is even a chance that we are the only race of intelligent beings in the universe(highly unlikely.) Time will tell, though. It always does.

This whole thing reminds me of that really crappy movie Battlefield Earth. That movie was so bad I watched it a second time, just to make sure it really was as bad as I originally thought it was....lol

Exactly. Once a race passes the point of the "Dominate and Own everything" human mentality, they're opening themselves up to a whole other world of possibilities.

Self sustainability and joining allies would probably be first of the agenda of any advanced race.

If their civilization never had Christianity or any superstitious beliefs they would probably be about 1000 years ahead of us lol.

Yeah, it seems like a lot of opinions here are swayed by the movies, human nature, or both. As humans we have a sense of greed and lust. We will take greatness and power at nearly any cost. I can almost guarantee that a civilization who has been around millions, possibly billions of years, is past that primitive mentality.

There are 2 possibilities. Aliens exist and 1] they are less advanced then us, 2] more advanced but have no need to disturb us and we got nothing to offer.

I've always thought that any intelligent civilisation cannot last more than a few 10 thousand years without consuming itself to destruction. If we did find some super advanced alien Race, they would likely be a race with a "higher understanding" and would not be aggressive.

I think every civilisation will always end up following the same destructive path and the only races that would survive would be the ones "beyond" that. Aliens that have a huge understanding of our universe.

I 100% agree. I can understand your first comment as well, since our Human race has been on a path of self-destruction since our inception.
