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 Earth denizens and would-be friends. We are a little disheartened today but we will still share with you our perspective. This blog is useful to us, it allows us to share our views and is a record of our observations. Being an alien on this planet is never easy, this blog helps us to unload some of the information and data we have accumulated over our years of study in a way that is concise and we hope that Earth will someday appreciate our efforts. We can only hope. However, we will continue with this blog and we have plenty more perspective to share with you.
The perspective for today is: Hope. This word is difficult to describe. The dictionary definition is:
[ hohp ]

1. the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best:
to give up hope.
2. a particular instance of this feeling:
the hope of winning.
verb (used with object), hoped, hop·ing.
1.to look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence.
2.to believe, desire, or trust:
I hope that my work will be satisfactory.
verb (used without object), hoped, hop·ing.
1.to feel that something desired may happen:
We hope for an early spring.
Archaic. to place trust; rely (usually followed by in).
And while this definition is satisfactory to most people, we believe from our observations that either we are a hopeless alien, or that hope means something more. To us, hope = future. We believe that there is no future if the denizens of Earth give up hope. If hope is gone, there will be apathy and lethargy, and worst of all, chaos.
No one actually wants this but it seems that the denizens of Earth do not believe us, and refute our careful observations and study. We are concerned, because if humanity fails, we will likely be even more alone and trapped. But, all of our concerns are not selfish. We have felt a camaraderie with humanity in recent years and our inference that it is possible for humanity to have a great future.
Please, Humans of Earth. Do not give up hope. Your future depends on it. We are the Alien in Exile and we want survival.
