An Embassy for Extraterrestrials
"It is not because no one sees the truth that it becomes an error"
Essential international communication between different nations of the modern world has always been carried out through diplomatic embassies. The major nations maintain embassies in all the other important countries. Such embassies have always been the essential means of ensuring lasting peace and mutual benefit between different peoples.
Arguments continue about the odds but clearly many people accept that there is a strong likelihood that other life exists in space. The possibility cannot be ignored and it is wise to foresee and anticipate contacts, the chances of which can only increase as we explore our universe. This document therefore looks at the rationale for such an embassy that would facilitate proper contacts with a benevolent extra-terrestrial civilisation.
