Q. “If the general public knew or saw what you saw, how would they — what would the next week look like?” Jaimungal asked. “How would the public react?
“Somber, meaning serious. Not, not like Hollywood portrays people partying in the streets and silliness like that. I think you would have some people perhaps turning to religion more so.
You might have some people turning away from it. I think you’re gonna have … at that point, the philosophical and theological questions will be raised and people will have some serious soul-searching to do, no pun intended.
And I don’t think that’s bad, by the way. I think a lot of folks that have spent their times in this community being charlatans will have been exposed and they will be probably unemployed and probably have to change their names because the rest of society will look at them in an unfavorable light.
I think there are some unsung heroes that will probably come to light, and the world will appreciate their contributions to this topic. I think the scientific and academic community is gonna have to take a real hard look at itself. and see why it repeated the same mistakes it did when Galileo first proposed that the Earth was not the center of the solar system. You know, hubris is a big part of that.
And then I think, you know, maybe we start the international conversation. We say, okay, we realize there are some things out there that are probably well beyond our petty discrepancies we have with each other, maybe we really need to start working together on this, realize that we really are a global family.
It doesn’t matter where you’re from, it doesn’t matter what your religion is or culture or your color or anything else. We are all brothers and sisters on this tiny little rock called Earth, you know, this pale blue dot that’s hurtling through space.”
What a statement - from a person who has seen behind the curtain. Thank you Lou!
