Even if alien life is remotely similar to our own, there will be a human tendency (amoungst some) not to consider it “evolved enough” to warrant
respect. We already have an entire wealth of biological life aboard our own planet, that we are already aware of, and the large majority of humanity
pays it no mind as possibly being “intelligent life”.

So far as “alien” life is concerned, there are concepts such as Douglas Adam’s humorous hypothesis of “a super intelligent shade of blue”. So we’d
really be starting off on the foot of whether or not the “alien” in question had the ability to (or desire to) communicate in a fashion we could
bluntly understand as a form of direct communication (or attempts thereof).

I know this all is probably painfully obvious to anyone in the serious realm of Exo-Biology, and there are no shortages of Biologists and Botanists
who do their best to enlighten the masses as to the wonderful world of our home planet and it’s varied inhabitants and their varied methods of
non-verbal communication, but I seriously believe there will only be a small margin of peoples to make first contact with Exo-Life simply because they
have such a narrow definition of what constitutes Life Worth Respecting and Preserving.
As to whether or not we have been “looking in the right places” I firmly believe the answer is all around us, we’re just too preoccupied with the
wrong specifications for what constitutes “alien”.
Most people immediately think Little Green Men or Greys, others Lizard or Cat people, or some variant of the humanoid physique. Others are more bent
on looking for microbials or other types of fozzilized evidence offworld….oddly enough, all of which MIMICS life we know on Terra.
Leave the Super Intelligent Shades of Blue for the more open minded to postulate.

Call me the sort who believes all the answers we require on this field of study are already here on our little Terrestrial globe…..and many going
extinct every day due to the carelessness, arrogance and shortsightedness of the Dominant Life Forms herein.
*cue Environmental Activists*
Heck, for all we know you’re right on the mark and subatomic particles may have consciousness….which is one reason the Higgs Boson was so elusive
for so long, it just wasn’t interested in talking to us until the time was right. Observer effect and all that, maybe it sensed peaceful intent and
said “what the heck, hows it goin’?”
After all, stranger things have happened.
