What do you think we'd do if we met alien life that was intelligent like us, but lacked our flaws. Run like hell. Evolved creatures bear the indelible stamp of their lowly origins. They calculate. They cheat. They hurt. They kill. And in these things they take pleasure. But if you're floating through outer space, and you encounter a perfect species... Something made it. So, you have two possibilities. (1) this is the precious creation of a self-loathing evolved organism (2) it's a lie, and you're being trapped. Either way you're probably about to be killed. What if that's just chauvinism, and there exists species that aren't horrible, like humans? I call those species food.
