In the News (The Guardian): “’We come in peace’ might be the traditional opening gambit for aliens in science fiction, but we should be wary about beaming back a response to any advanced life-forms in real life, Stephen Hawking has warned.
“Our first contact from an advanced civilisation could be equivalent to when Native Americans first encountered Christopher Columbus and things ‘didn’t turn out so well’, he cautioned. …
“It is not the first time Hawking has warned about the prospect of hostile aliens. Launching the Breakthrough Listen project, which will scan the nearest million stars for signs of life, last year he suggested that any civilisation reading our messages could be billions of years ahead of humans. ‘If so they will be vastly more powerful and may not see us as any more valuable than we see bacteria,’ he said.”
My Comment: If there were an extraterrestrial civilization that existed that possessed such high technology, accordingly it would also be on a higher level of thinking and social order. In fact, all structures of social development will develop in parallel and determine the levels of development of each other.
According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, no other civilizations besides this one on the face of the Earth exists in nature! Our universe fully reflects the higher system of HaVaYaH, from which it follows that we are alone in the universe and must bring the entire universe, the levels of the still, vegetative, and animate, to complete connection specifically uniting reasonably on the social (human) level.
