An Open Letter to My Alien Friends Visiting Earth

This article was originally published at on July 25th, 2008

Hello and welcome to planet Earth.

I trust your trip was a pleasant one. To be honest I´ve always believed you existed. I know some of us here have a little problem believing in you guys, but I´ve always figured in such a big universe with so many planets that you guys had to exist. I heard Dr. Edgar Mitchell do a radio interview today where he confesses you guys do, in fact, exist. Here´s a man who walked on the moon, achieved a doctorate degree, and is a respected scientist who speaks out and says you exist. It´s my understanding that he´s been saying such things for years and yet I´ve never heard of the mainstream media reporting on it. I´m sure some skeptics are going to continue to insist that something else happened or was said. I´m fairly certain that some of the spinners will try to convince themselves and others that Dr. Edgar Mitchell is some kind of lunatic or didn´t mean what he said. A friend of mine already asked me if he was suffering from dementia. Someone else claimed he was suffering from space craziness or some such thing. I don't know about that and see no reason not to take him at his word.

I would personally like to know what planet you are from, where you are located and how you solved the speed of light problem, but hey, that´s just me. It would be nice to get to know you a little better, to find out what you´re all about. I certainly would like to be certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are real, like Dr. Mitchell does. I mean, after all, though the possibilities exist and the evidence is convincing, there´s nothing like being able to see, hear, touch, and smell to validate existence. Besides, Dr. Mitchell admitted to being involved with many government agencies, including intelligence agencies, and it´s difficult for me to believe anything coming out of the mouth of anyone involved with the government. I always look for the agenda. I don´t see an agenda right now with Dr. Mitchell´s statement, but that doesn´t necessarily mean one doesn´t exist.

Anyway, Dr. Mitchell said something during the interview which really concerns me. He claims that many governments have known about you guys for decades and you´ve been in contact with these people. It occurs to me that you may not have made the best decision here. Governments are not always the bastions of the best and the brightest of humanity. In fact, it is quite possible that the opposite is true. It is also quite possible that if you have only had dealings with politicians and high level bureaucrats, it would be understandable if you have a very low opinion of humanity. I would ask that you reconsider who you are dealing with. I would ask that you start searching out others who would be more representative of the hard working common man.

I believe that if you dealt with common folk rather than those who inhabit the halls of power, your impression of humanity might shift dramatically. You would find that not all humans have a lust for power, not all humans wish to control all others. Some of us understand the concept of freedom and wish to grant it to all humanity so that everyone can reach their full potential. You would find that most of us are honest. We mean what we say and we stick to our word. We don´t use language in such a way as to deceive. We are not all plotting and seeking ways to steal from someone to give to another while making sure our own fortunes and those of our friends are well served. Truly, there are many more of us that are principled than you might think.

Of course, whether or not you want to deal with us commoners depends much on what you are like and why you are here. If you are here to study our civilization and learn about us as individuals, then you should try to diversify your experiences with us as much as possible. Dealing only with politicians, high level military and intelligence officials, and other high level bureaucrats is not a good way to go about this. Perhaps you could come experience our socializing functions, how we interact, and see the wonderful products and services we offer each other to make our lives more fun and meaningful. Talk to us. Get to know us. I ´m certain these experiences would open your eyes, especially if you are judging humanity only from such a small, unrepresentative sample.

If you want to trade fairly with us and create an honest, peaceful trade and business relationship with us, again you have made a mistake dealing with government types. They have a tendency to want to regulate everything to make sure those who are rich remain so and those who have new ideas find it difficult to put their products or services on the open market. Indeed, there are some accusations that certain technologies have been hidden and sat upon for years so that those in power would remain in power. If you wish to trade with the mass of humanity, it is best to do so directly for those who seek control over humanity will do whatever is in their power to keep beneficial technologies that would challenge their financial empires away from us. They would also always try to get the upper hand to maximize their own worth while minimizing yours. I´m sure you´ll find the common man more open to find something we could trade that would benefit all parties involved.

If you have come to try to control or enslave us, then you have indeed picked the right allies. In that case, I wish you the best of luck, for I think you will find the common man is full of more surprises than you might realize. Humans are more resilient than you might think. We are more intelligent than some give us credit for. Ideas do not die among us and many of us will continue to seek self reliance no matter the situation. It just might be that we won´t be the easy pushovers you may think we are.

In any case, I invite you to make yourselves known to us if you are visiting. You may find we are more hospitable than you imagine. If you are not visiting and Dr. Mitchell´s statement is just some kind of disinformation, some kind of game being played for nefarious purpose, then this letter is for naught. In that case I say to those who spread such propaganda that one day we will have an open society, an open government which doesn´t keep secrets from its populace. One day, such deception will not be tolerated. When that day comes, our founding fathers´ dreams will have come true and their vision of freedom will have come to fruition.
