Alien Life: Humans Aren't Ready?

Earthlings Not Ready for Alien Encounters, Yet

By Irene Klotz

     The people of planet Earth would be wise to raise their cosmic consciousness prior to contact with an extraterrestrial civilization, a new study shows.

“The scientific community now accepts to some degree that this contact may occur in the next 50 to 100 years,” writes Gabriel De la Torre, a clinical neuropsychologist and human factors specialist at the University of Cádiz in Spain.

“Consequently, we are becoming more concerned about this possibility and its aftermath … Certainly the topic of contact with extraterrestrial civilizations raises a number of questions that are not easy to answer,” De la Torre writes. “We estimate that this type of event will have not only a social effect, but also on both consciousness and biology as well.”

De la Torre surveyed 116 college students from Spain, the United States and Italy about their religious beliefs, familiarity with astronomy and the Search for Extraterrestial Intelligence, or SETI, programs, and other factors including attention and perception.

The results showed several aspects affect awareness of space. . . .

. . . “Some individuals, small groups of people or scientists, may actually possess the required level of awareness to be involved in an event such as contact with an extraterrestrial civilization, but we need to further analyze the current global awareness level as a species.” . . .
