Alien in Exile #23
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 somewhat apprehensive about the state of the world today. Our world, that is. We are asking ourselves existential questions: does our species exist? do we ourselves even exist? Maybe humans are the ones who are alien and we are part of an elaborate experiment. Nevertheless, we do not want to degrade ourselves into believing conspiracy theories or become paranoid.
It does seem fitting however, in light of these questions to examine our topic for this article. The perspective for today is: Fear. We like to think of ourselves as being brave. After all, we are sharing our perspective with the world through this blog, at risk of being discovered and captured. But, the truth is that we are afraid, similar to the fear of humans. Humans seem to be afraid of things that baffle us. Such as the unknown and ceasing to exist or death, as some humans call it.
However, we are not afraid of the unknown, we have many questions and believe everything unknown can be found and explained. Also we are not afraid of death because there are things worse than death, we have been subjected to some of them yet we are still here. Sometimes, we think that our being sentenced to live here is worse than death, but there have been a few things that make it more bearable.

Being afraid does not have to be a bad thing. If you have an element of safety. We have watched some Hello humans. We are somewhat apprehensive about the state of the world today. Our world, that is. We are asking ourselves existential questions: does our species exist? do we ourselves even exist? Maybe humans are the ones who are alien the movies of Earth classified in the horror genre and although most of them are not very scary there is something to be said for a feeling of suspense while you empathize with the hapless character from the safety of your chair.
There are several movies not classified in the horror genre where we have felt empathy for the characters where humans have laughed or scoffed at them. We do not see what is funny or entertaining about the demise of creatures who happen to not be human. We are speaking of the science fiction genre, and believe that aliens are being portrayed inaccurately and treated unfairly.
We tend to root for the underdog and the movies of Earth tend to classify the underdog incorrectly. We would like to see movies where the true underdog wins: the aliens. Logically it makes more sense for the aliens to win, if only for the reason of superior technology evidenced by the ability to visit humans.
Fear of aliens is a misplaced and illogical phobia. We are alien and we embrace the idea of other aliens no matter how different they may be from ourselves. If you stop and think about it, humans are very likely aliens themselves, as the only thing that they possess to truly adapt to this planet is intellect. Without the ability to think, and invent, humans would have been extinct long ago.
We are the alien in Exile and we want justice for all. Conclusion: do not be afraid. Solution: accept differences + embrace the unknown = peace
