Alien #1: You are prepared to come before this council today with your recommendation on the humans?
Alien #2: I am.
Alien #1: Then this evaluation hearing shall come to order and you may proceed.
Alien #2: Thank you as you know I have always been a proponent of the humans as a species It is no secret that I have always found they are rather unique. Above all other life on Earth they are special because of their cognitive ability. When I was first tasked with evaluating them it was my hope that when faced with differences they would respond as many of our species have and use this ability to find common ground, to learn from each other and to grow as a species. Unfortunately that is not the case. Rather when faced with the unknown of another group my research has shown they choose, since the beginning of their time, not to use this ability to grow as a species but to make us versus them decisions along lines of race, ethnicity, gender, language group, religion, age, socioeconomic status, and so on. That combined with the human thirst for power and money has led them to turn their back on at best orto attempt to subjugate or even kill the other group at worst. This undoubtedly has stunted their development as a species over time yet they still do not change. Why? Well I have theorized and in my opinion their actions have proven this to be true the human mind despite all of its unique and special characteristics is lazy. When I say lazy what I mean is the human mind prefers to be comfortable. It is more comfortable to accept that which is familiar than that which is different. Even when they come to the realization that their actions are morally wrong and counterproductive to their society as a whole It is more comfortable to ignore this than to confront it. More importantly it appears that it is in their nature to live in the moment at the expense of their species future’s greater good, one can see that in how they treat their own planet. Coupled with their creation of and need for a socioeconomic system in which each group strives to climb over the other. One can only surmise that over the course of their history there has been the loss of great minds that may have developed over time in the groups that have resided near the bottom of the chain. Minds that if not extinguished would have flourished and led to the growth of the species as a whole. Regrettably it is this lack of self awareness that they are all human that I must say while having many tremendous qualities has proven they are clearly not ready to join us at this time.
Alien #1: Your recommendation has been entered humans admission to the the Advanced Collective of Universal Planets has been denied at this time.
