i can't stop thinking about janus2x's experience and it's got me thinking: if you were to have a personal experience with extraterrestrial life, besides the possible sexual/sensual desires you may have (since that has its own, shall we say.... Extremely Enlightening thread) what would you like to get out of it?
would you prefer in-person, or through another lens like janus' dream writing? would you want to go anywhere with them? would you want to have context for your memories of what happens? do you hope the experience is for education purposes, or do you just want to, like, vibe?
personally, i have no preference between being face to face with them or just experiencing their effects from afar, but i definitely want (hope) to learn who they are and what their goals are before it's over. even if i couldn't tell anyone about it, i would honestly be kind of sad to just have my own version of events.
