A request for some HOPE from all A2Kers.

Don't intend to get morose here, but at 78, I suspect I don’t have much time left on this planet…almost certainly less time left than I've already spent here.

One of the big disappointments in my stay so far has been: No confirmed contact with life from another planet.

So I was wondering if you all would do a big favor and join cyber-hands with me…and WISH that some sort of confirmed contact with sentient life from another planet occurs…before I shed this mortal coil.

I realize that science fiction would suggest that contact with aliens might end up as a death sentence for human life…but I think it more likely that any beings able to contact us (or visit us) would have passed beyond the “let’s kill ‘em” stage of development.

So I hope you can join me…even if you think it a silly stunt.

Join hands in cyber space…and HOPE your butt off that confirmed contact with life from somewhere outside of Earth…happens soon.

“Visitors” is what I would prefer…and if you could focus your hope in that direction…I'd be especially appreciative.

Hoping against hope, he believed.

I hope they're out there, Frankie and that they stop by Castel Apisa for a
neighborly visit. As long as they get the right exit. Intergalactic travel
doesn't prepare you for the New Jersey Turnpike.

@Frank Apisa,
Recent suggestions Frank that there might be more planets than stars suggests strongly that the Universe is replete with humanoids. Problem of course is that most are pretty far apart; but I suspect the few that are, do communicate, if not visit

@Frank Apisa,
I'm not as far ahead as you are Frank. I'm still pissed my childhood ideas of the future haven't come to pass. For one, I was expecting for all transportation to be based on magnetic fields....those libertine b'tards!

I think it's more likely we haven't been contacted because WE haven't passed beyond that stage of development.

@Frank Apisa,
I think a nice TV signal from another planet would be nice (if we could decode it). Then we could watch and learn without taking much, if any, risk from actual contact.

Merely observing another intelligent species would of course alter us in some way, but it would be far more benign than actual contact.

Feeding on the questions

which abide in corners

of shadowed cobwebs

that litter minds

@farmerman,
That's not Klingon, that's typical Farmerman English spelling.

Thanks to everyone so far.

I hope you are all HOPING...and WISHING with me.

I think we might be able to do this.

If we put enough effort into the hoping and wishing...it might come to pass.

Not just being a wise-ass here...playing with the hope/wish versus pray thingy. C'mon...put some feeling into it. Join cyber-hands with me and wish and hope...and who knows!

Gotta be others out there. Maybe they are avoiding us as Eva suggested. But maybe not. And why not now...rather than sometime in the future?

My guess is they will avoid the Turnpike and Parkway as much as I try to do.

If you want to meet aliens you need to change your name to Billy Jo Bob Jo Billy Jo Bob and move to somewhere in the deep south at least 100 miles from a town with a post office. Then not only will you meet aliens, you might even have sex with some of them.
