I've just had a shocking thought.

Since mammals are the only type of animal that produces milk, and their evolutionary existence is almost purely coincidental, the vast majority of intelligent alien lifeforms throughout the universe will never have tried cheese.

Ftxgtrg (looking at his plate): What's this called, anyway?

Gtxtxfx: I got it on Urth, it's called cheese.

Ftxgtrg: Looks funny. What IS it?

Gtxtxfx: Well, it's fermented glandular secretions from one of several species of indigenous motile lifeforms, partially digested by bacteria. The blue stuff is mold.

Ftxgtrg: Hmmmmmm....
:biggrin: :cheese:

I'd present them with a copy of each of the following: The Bible, The Koran, The Torah, Upanishads and random other mystical hocus pocus and ask them if they would care to obliterate us on the basis of their content.

Galaxian.
The visitors would be rather confused, and will reply:"Galaxian is the gift that we gave to you. Returning that gift is the height of indecency! The gift that we most cherish is that you enforce a legal system that's not corrupted. For example, when are bLiar, Bush, Rumsfeld and Cheney going to be tried for war crimes? And there are several thousand other senior criminal perpetrators to add to the above four. Before you can even dream of being taken seriously by the Galactic Federation, you need to have a legal system that is impartial and that actually works..."

Oh Galaxian. You've swallowed the Galactic Federation's propaganda pill and now you can't help but reflexively regurgitate its malignant narrative. The Galactic Federation is an oppressive, controlling regime that hides behind a veil of so-called lofty, civilised ideals while it mercilessly deploys subterfuge, mind-control, genetic manipulation, and gunship diplomacy to stop any species that refuses to accept its authority from developing towards transcendent communion with 'The One'. To use a colloquialism, in everything you write, say, and do, you are singing the songs of the devils not the angels.

Pity Galaxian, for he knows not what he does.

The aliens are in bed with the CIA, so it's obvious.

I used to sleep with an alien. A legal one, but an alien nonetheless. But then she got her citizenship so now I sleep with a 'Murikan.

:cheers: Indeed, there's a lot of truth in what you say. Since psychopathy is an evolutionarily advantageous trait, and selected for in every generation...to the extent that it can feed off the rest of the population (the masses), it follows that psychopathy must exist throughout the Universe.

So, there's always psychopaths in top organizations, such as the Galactic Federation (GF). However the GF has foreseen this, and over its millions of years of existence has taken steps to limit the negative effects of psychopaths (such as megalomania), and enhance their positive effects (such as single-minded problem solving).

Bear in mind also that the GF has a tremendous input from its AI members who constantly exchange data between themselves & the biological members, many of whom are androids or cyborgs (human-machine hybrids). So the psychopathic input is firmly controlled.

But in the final analysis, a tree is known by its fruits, and the GF does not have wars all over the place, in contrast to a certain Earth-bound nation that has some 800 military bases around this sorry globe. The GF does not impose itself on any planet. But it does restrict the expansionist tendencies of any uncivilized, aggressive species, such as the sentient Beings of Earth (till they become civilized). :td:

Is the GF limited by relativity and the speed of light Galaxian my old chum? Which is to say are communications limited by those factors? For example if GHQ (Galactic Headquarters) is somewhere near the centre of the galaxy, does it take 100,000 years (roughly the diameter of the galaxy) for a message to get to the local representatives? Of course if HQ was well on the other side of the galaxy it could take much longer of course - up to 200,000 years. Would make flexibility and short term reactive planning somewhat problematic.

Just wondering and hoping you can help me out with this puzzle. Yours inquisitively.
