We are not alone?

I find that mantra or trope – We are not alone, used in the opening of the History channel’s Ancient Alienseries and often uttered by persons in the UFO community – a delineation of Jung’s insights about extroverts and introverts: some people need to be with others, some like being alone.

But it’s more than that.

The COVID-19 pandemic caused a near psychological panic among extroverts, who need human contact to feel alive or existent. (Introverts were happy with the surcease in human contact.)

But in a UFO context, what does We are not alonemean, besides the idea that there are other planets with life in the cosmos?

It’s a non-intellectual statement that harbors the extrovertish need for contact with others, yes, but it’s also the acceptance of a foolish wish that there are other living beings in the vast array of the Universe, despite the “fact” that there has been nor is there any proof or evidence of life off-Earth.

It’s an ignorant, glib foray into a pathetic need for relationships outside those one has everyday that, for them, are unrewarding or without any real emotional sustenance.

Sharing meals with non-acquaintances at a restaurant or enjoying the puerile excitement of a sporting event or swimming in near nudity at a public beach, et cetera, et cetera are of a kind; attempts to quell the feeling that even God doesn’t care a fig about one’s life or being.

A documentary I saw a few days ago about the Fermi Paradox had one of the reasons that there isn’t evidence for extraterrestrial life: there is no extraterrestrial life. We are, indeed, alone.

The mantra We are not alone can’t salvage our need to be surrounded by life at the Earth level or beyond.

For we introverts,  being alone is a boon, a reprieve from the human stasis of ignorance and ignorant bliss – gatherings (like those UFO conferences or those inane Facebook groups) – where one has to keep their mouth shut for fear of vomiting from the insertions of banal utterances that issue forth from the bulk of collective majority.

We may be alone, but one wouldn’t know it by all the suffocating blather encompassing us everywhere.

Luckily we have epidemics or pandemics every now and then to provide necessary respites from the great, noisy and stupid unwashed.
