Right. Looked at statistically our own situation should be
representative and 'mediocre' - not exceptional. So we can
expect that life-forms a million years more primitive than
ourselves exist somewhere, and also that there is life, in
whatever form it may have achieved, a million years or more in
advance of us.

Possible dangers could be expected from those relatively close
to our own stage, biological beings who might regard us as
competition - or as a resource of some kind. But such types are
not likely to be able to travel long distances easily.

Whereas those a million (or a billion) years in advance will be
unrecognizable, and have almost certainly visited us, or those
like us, many times already.

As the professors Cohen and Stewart wrote - "considering how far
out from our parochial organic history any aliens that we find
will be, leads inexorably to the conclusion that we will find
them incomprehensible: not only as minds, but also as
structures". They added "we simply would not know they were here
unless they wanted us to".

Pronouncements from SETI, and the Brooking Institution Report
indicate that the self-elected establishment are probably not
concerned with finding truth but with retaining control - even
if that means enforcing ignorance.
