Rezzy - I'm in agreement with you, otherwise what's the point?! I was saying it for Jane to show that there will be physical evidence, not just someone else's word.
Yes, just like there are always groups that have a certain intention or agenda, there will be some that are supportive and some that might see them as a threat. The aliens are not in any real danger whatsoever from us, and they aren't looking to hurt us either. And it's not going to be like West Side Story with an escalation of weapons on both sides. Like with any form of fear/prejudice (i.e. racial, sexual, etc), it takes a deeper understanding and a willingness to place ourselves in someone else's position, before we can move forward into greater cooperation. And we are going to have our hands full with our own transformation which the aliens will show that they have been supportive of for years.
What no one has talked about it, is the expansion of human rights when this happens. For example, all of a sudden being gay or lesbian won't be such a big deal, and some strides will be taken to help everyone
have equal rights. Arguing against a human, any human, not having the same rights as any other human will just seem beyond
stupid at that point.
It's not very likely that we'll discover our grandmother was from outer space, but it would be funny to discover some celebrities are, like in the movie Men in Black! Or our high school teacher! Too funny.
There are likely to be a few aliens in a variety of industries, including business leaders and government officials - all of that will become known.
The tales about mythical creatures that pre-date the Greek/Roman gods, were based on actual humans who had reached a certain level of consciousness, that could do any number of things, including some impressive shape-shifting to avoid being captured/killled. An ascended master can pretty much do whatever they want with matter, including their own bodies - and there is no need to hurt anyone else. So we humans are capable of eluding pain and death too, not just the aliens. There are plenty of masters around the planet who are also biding their time before becoming known.
PS - I love the old joke - "Do you smoke after sex?" "I don't know, I never looked."
