Wat sou ons maak as 'n ander spesie ons sou kontak? What would we do if another species were to contact us?

SF Debris: Extraterrestrial Life, and Us

(Also, what I've translated as "stargate" up until now will be translated as "star portal" from now on to prevent confusion.)


Jane: Were you here recently?
Louwrens: Because I could withdraw money from the ATM? Not me personally, ... but other Resistance members were.
Jane: And could they find any trace of the old Khanite civilization here?
Louwrens: Besides the South African artefact, no; but we don't know how long the star portal that leads here has been active. Maybe the Anakim have found something already ...

Jane: I shouldn't be trusting you. For all I know, all you Om-Ankh are hand in glove anyway ...
Louwrens: But me and the rest of the Resistance are helping you against the Anakim. And the Om-Ankh on this planet haven't done anything to you. We even have the same cultures as you do ... / Is that not enough for you?
Jane: No. I know that you're programmable; therefore your current behavior proves nothing.

Jane: In spite of myself, I'd really like to believe that you and all the Om-Ankh on this planet, and in the Resistance, really are who you say you are. / That you're even people at all, and not merely a set of programs housed in a biological shell. / But let's say I make that assumption and I'm wrong; what then? I can't allow myself to do that ... / I need proof!

Will any amount of proof convince Jane? And does she *really* want to believe Louwrens? Or is this just deception before she puts bullets in him?

@Lavabat: Can you prove that I'm not just some kind of hallucination that you're having?

You probably don't feel the need to, but imagine that you spent 10 000 years in a self-manufactured reality. What about then? How much do you care about the lives of NPCs in a game?

What would have made you believe that reality is really real?

@jtza8: I don't understand what you are on about.

@Lavabat: Must have been tired yesterday, misread what you wrote as "Jane, really?" and then I wondered how you would have written the character differently. Sorry about that.

Hehe, don't stress guys, I understand what both of you are saying and I agree ;)

@Wolfie_Inu: I'm not stressing. I just did not understand what he was saying originally. :P
