Maybe I was onto something. Maybe this is a test from Aliens to see if we're ready for first contact, using our own culture. That has some possibility to it. I mean, it would explain the strange design of it, and it very alien computing processes.
If that's true though, what's all this talk about dictators then? If we don't answer it, do we prove ourselves NOT worthy of contact and are destroyed or taken over? Is this a planetary threat from an extra-planetary source?
