Humans have always explored their world, pushing further away from the familiar to explore new regions and new ideas. It should be no surprise then, that when humans gained the abilities to explore the stars their eyes looked up with wonder and they focused their attention and efforts solely on the attempt to establish contact in outer space.
But humans should have been more careful; they should have been more wise. They should have explored their world better to understand the dark places they never accessed. Because we live in the dark places, and have been in contact with the stars for a very, very long time. The stars are our allies and have always been.
And they don’t like the humans.
