Catchy title, I know. But trust me - this will take but a moment, and the end result is well worth it. In fact, a six year old could do it.
Before revealing this foolproof method of coming face-to-face with an ET, we need to make a few quick comments on human nature and some of our… "peculiarities" in comparison to the rest of the natural world.
Firstly, we know that planet Earth is populated by over twenty-five million species of flora and fauna (with some disappearing daily and others being discovered for the first time). These organisms range from the monstrously huge (such as blue whales and elephants) to minute and nearly imperceptible microbes. Nearly every earthly ecosystem imaginable is populated by something.
But this smooth biological mixture is not without its anomalies. A seemingly out-of-place element resides amidst the harmony: Homo Sapiens. Possessing neither claws nor fangs, this somewhat weak, fragile, and bipedal creature is without doubt the planet's top species, having dominion over the lives and fate of everything alive surrounding it. While some would attribute this to simple adaptability and more efficient gray matter, it might be more appropriate to emphasize this species' uncanny ability to seemingly continuously strive to surpass itself and destroy previous limitations - to the point where even the casual observer must conclude that in all probability, the creature is trying to become something other than itself.
One need not look too far or back in history for such individuals. Besides masters such as Pythagorus, Jesus, Mohammed, Ghandi, Confuscius, and many others, other more accessible individuals exemplify humanity's trait of wanting to "break the limits". The legendary (and now deceased) rock climber Dan Osman, for instance, amazed onlookers as vertical cliff walls hundreds of feet high (check out his Lover's Leap video on YouTube) were effortlessly climbed in minutes - with bare hands and no equipment aside for runners and chalk!
Another comparable individual is Hannah Stacey, the current UK record holder in the realm of deep-sea diving. At 50 kg and a mere 1.6 m in height, the "atomic tadpole" can hold her breath under water for over four and a half minutes. And while her current best depth is 54 m, she is aiming to break the 60 m barrier. Will she do it? Evolution and personal drive affirms that she (or ones following in her footsteps) will.
