It is not a forum of that topic, but I would be interested in empirical vocabulary alignment that is evidence for a suggestion of a mental capacity or state...

In any event thank you for your actual thought into understanding what I was enumerating.

Yes, I think an advanced intelligence rather than destroying everything might attempt at least to put on a show so that the contact could be more easily friendly than a simple rampage against an unwanted occupying presence.

They might even take local psychological stock of how we treat each other to determine their course of action...

Thanks again, no imposition suggested at all...

I mean even our own government has microwave active denial systems... I think Aliens would not need to land... They could just purify the planet from extra solar orbit then do whatever the hell they want... Seems to be more along the lines of what we understand as introducing ourselves... I am trying to write a more believable and friendly story...

Have a nice day! :)

Oh, and another option is that I try to move beyond the limits of a 26 letter alphabet and its possible permutations... I am guilty of being a Navy Nuke Submariner and an Information Modeler who has written several data warehouse cubes blah blah blah... I guess it is appropriate since some Doctors keep so much in their mind to help others they barely remember how to sign their name...

Hi Paul, I apologise if you felt insulted by me suggesting that English may not be your first language. Whether it is or isn't, you speak better English than many others I could name that ought to be able to!

Regards
Chris S

Quick encapsulation :) no apology necessary though I do accept graciously and in kind. Coming from nuke, IT\IS and instruction\teaching skin is quite thick. Used to start my networking classes with the statement that if one had thin skin one needed to change courses.

Sincerely, please feel free to message privately if there is sincere concern over something I write. I know some of the material I put out is quite affronting to some or ah-hem overly wordy, even here surely... Though I know the audience here is much more broadly imagined at the very least than most. :)

Kind Regards,
Paul

Will let the current status sit before moving the scenario forward, I think we have a couple "newer" concepts of what might happen already that I do not think have been investigated in depth in fantasy fiction or reality :)
