As my name suggests, I keep to myself. I avoid contact with others. I trust few people. If you approach me, I will retreat quickly. If you interest me, I will observe you for an extended time and if I feel I can trust you, I will approach slowly and carefully.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run SETI to test the long term stability and cooling capability of my system. Considering all the reports of UFO sightings, it seems strange we have never intercepted a communication either to or from them. If ET really exists he must communicate in a manner different from us, in which case it seems SETI is using the wrong approach.
