Alicia Christian Foster was born to Lucius Fisher Foster III & Evelyn
Ella Almond-Foster at Los Angeles County Hospital(118W12:29,34N03:27)
on Monday November 19, 1962 at 8:14 AM PST(AA/BC).


What's that got to do with Alien contact ?

Either one; neither is now possible or likely.

However, most people understand that it would
be possible to have contact by establishing
communications.


Not the slightest hint of this so far, and not likely to occur in the future due to vast distances.

The vast distances can be crossed by radio waves.
Or even by very slow drone craft.

Some day our scientists that are listening may
hear a message from another species.

Maybe tomorrow, maybe 5 years from now, or maybe 1,000
years from now it may come. But how long will our
species be around listening?

Again:

If you are referring to a human and an alien advanced
species being together at the same place at the same time,
that would #1 be quite dangerous and #2 be very unlikely
for the reasons you keep repeating. i.e. too far &
travel is too slow.

So, If you mean 'face' to 'face' your ideas are
probably correct.

However, most people understand that it would
be possible to have contact by establishing
communications. That could occur some year,
or decade, or century. That event would be
extremely important for the human species.
It would transform how we feel about and view
ourselves. "Ideas" are probably the only medium
of trade between solar systems.

I see no point in repeating material that's already clearly displayed and not needed.

Not in any reasonable time, practical for 2 way communications.

It still comes down to : Distance = Speed x Time .

What part of this don't you understand ? !

Default No Alien Contact ? - A very good Thing ! Some smart humans are trying.

Sure it's of interest to keep listening for possible transmissions from deep space, BUT any hope of 2 way communications must be seen in the practical light of the vast distances which would absolutely prevent such exchanges. i.e. - " Hi ! " yaers later " Hi, who are you " years later " We're on Earth " years later ... etc.

Why don't you give your scenario for a practical realistic exchange. Everything is limited by the speed of radio waves ( c ) and the vast distances. Is it not ? It's still Distance = Speed x Time.

Note that science fiction is just that. Operative term is fiction !

When one species interfaces with another, the more advanced typically

We have only to look at interactions on Earth to confirm this.


This isn't even generally true _on Earth_, let alone a good predictor
for interactions with a hypothetical species that we know nothing about.
