Alien in Exile #19

The perspective that you will hear from today is from someone who is not from earth but also not from anywhere else. We are the underground, we are an outsider, we are outcast, we are, the alien in exile.

Hello humans. We are feeling weary today of this world and have been dreaming about our unknown home. It is our greatest wish to simply go home. We realize that this may not happen any time soon. Since we appear to be stuck here we will continue and share with you our perspective again today.

The perspective for today is: Aging. We have been on this planet a long time it seems and we have lost track of the years because they all seem the same. But we have an idea that we are quite old in human terms. Humans occupying the area of earth on which we live seem to place a lot of negativity on the subject of aging. We do not understand how aging is such a bad thing, on the contrary it should be seen as an accomplishment at the very least.

We talk about respect in most of our blogs thus far, and we will not tire of mentioning it. We believe that respect is the key to solving most of the problems of this world. Respect for others that you share the planet with, respect for the planet itself, as well as the rest of the universe and time itself. We wish to receive some respect ourselves. People tend to dislike others who are different and wish to effect change.

Humans tend to have a lack of respect also for the appearance of others and of themselves when aging is apparent. We can not understand this, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and experience and wisdom is beautiful to us. Our own appearance is not of an elder, and we do look forward to the time when our appearance proves our own experience and wisdom. Like the character Yoda from the Star Wars franchise that is popular here.

Our solution is for humans to reverse the focus on youth in all visual media. Fashion, photography, television, videos and movies should celebrate age. Imagine a world where being old and wizened was respected and beautified! We believe that humans would feel much better about themselves and celebrate life as an achievement of time rather than the fleeting moments of youth.

If you happen to be young yourself, we ask you to show respect for your elders. Learn from their perspective and experience, and be accepting instead of condescending towards an aged appearance.

We are the Alien in Exile and we want equality. Conclusion: (age) + (experience) x (RESPECT) = wisdom
