"We now know they are there. It's kind of sad they dont have an intention to actually contact us.
Maybe they dont have to... we might be an animal in the zoo."
I think that we may simply be one of those nieghborhoods where they roll the windows down on their spaceships as the drive by. "Look! I think they see us! Don't make eye contact! Keep going....faster!"
"From our orbital vantage point, we observe an earth without borders, full of peace, beauty and magnificence, and we pray that humanity as a whole can imagine a borderless world as we see it, and strive to live as one in peace."
