astroengine (1577233) writes "The people of planet Earth would be wise to raise their cosmic consciousness prior to contact with an extraterrestrial civilization, a new study shows. “The scientific community now accepts to some degree that this contact may occur in the next 50 to 100 years,” said Gabriel De la Torre, a clinical neuropsychologist and human factors specialist at the University of Cádiz in Spain. “Consequently, we are becoming more concerned about this possibility and its aftermath Certainly the topic of contact with extraterrestrial civilizations raises a number of questions that are not easy to answer. We estimate that this type of event will have not only a social effect, but also on both consciousness and biology as well.” Although we may not have the necessary social skillset to deal with an encounter of the third kind, scientists or astronauts might make the best candidates for the first alien conversation."
