Aliens are creatures that are created as a result of fiction stories. At some point, the creatures assume human characters. In this regard, the holding from the above assertion does not conclusively dictate that the meaning of an alien strictly bases on fiction. In the modern society, the word alien is frequently used on a daily basis to refer to something or someone not normal. In this case, something new can be regard as alien. If a person happens to move from one country to another, it is likely that he will be regarded and considered by the inhabitants of the other country as alien. In the scientific field, aliens refer to creatures or arts of science that supersede the normal. They contain characteristics that identify them as special and of the great difference from normal expectations and things. In my study, however, my main concern will be the impact of the aliens on the society. In this case, what will mostly be considered will be the perception and impacts that people attribute aliens to society (Wenz) "Why are we So Terrible at Contracting Aliens."As a result, the study will unveil parameters that dictate how societal issues are run when aliens come into the societal context.
According to information from the United States research agencies, it is revealed that people hold different views when it comes to the concept that deals with the issues to do with aliens. In the research done by focus international, it was established that, the majority of people held that, aliens were creatures that assume a human body, but had aspects that were elemental towards the assumptions that aliens were super-humans who were not occupants of this earth but of the outer space. On the other hand, the report stated that aliens were individuals who were strangers in a foreign land. Original owners of a place or country referred to the visitor as aliens. As Paula in Aliens, in America puts it, aliens offer a great impact to the society. It further follows that the society is defined by its perception and take towards aliens. In this case, what decides one’s view on the society is the direction a society reacts towards the advancing of the Alien characters to its territory(Sturma) "Aliens and Indians: A Comparison of Abduction and Captivity Narratives." As a result, cultural issues are depicted in regard to the society in question.
Scientists have attributed the idea of aliens as follows: Aliens are beings that correspond to the human body form in stature but do not possess human attributes. The different between aliens is that they have superior qualities, as opposed to human weaknesses. In this case, John Claudia state that states that aliens have qualities that do not subject to them to human problems such as diseases and common things that tend to ultimately affect the lives of people. However, scientific evidence goes on to say that, in the event aliens that assume a scientific explanation find themselves in the scope of the earth, various issues are likely to arise. It is plausible that cultural values and aspects of a given community will get eroded.
Taking the United States of America, for example, it is an obvious fact that, the introduction of beings with super intelligence, unique appreciation of life issues and a total oppose of what the American people are will grossly affect the society. In this event, the society will have reacted hence the American society will be revealed. Similarly, the above illustration has been proved by scientific evidence that follows a majority of people fear advents in technology for the fear of the displacement of people in the job market. Imagine of aliens that have great accuracies in whatever activities they engage in and are reliable and of reach all times when need arises. Preferences by business people and employers who are out there to make money will be on aliens.
Some people perceive aliens from form a religious perspective. In the American society, it is important to note that we have a group of people who ardently believe that demons attribute to aliens. Their references in this regard are in accordance to religious doctrines and beliefs. Christians, for example, attribute issues of aliens to be as a result of demonic powers. In the event an alien finds himself in such a setting; it is likely that he will be chased away. Societies that have string regard and value for their religion hence do not offer a positive response in the event alien find themselves in the midst of the pious individuals. In this case, it is true to say that, the some believes and practices that entail religion form part and parcel of the community culture and the way of life. It does not mean that only the society rejects aliens in this regard. There is a possibility that aliens will offer resistance to the new circumstances that will be at their disposal (Crutcher, pg. 7-10) "MetaHumans and Metanoia: The Moral Dimension of Extraterrestials." For instance, aliens that assume scientific attribute will be engaged in sophisticated issues that do not concur with societal expectations and demands. Such an alien cannot be embrace religion as per the expectations of the community at hand .As a result, the culture and values of the society will be eroded. In this case, no reasonable person expects an alien to go to church. How can an Alien that is positioned along aspects of science embrace Christianity? The response to this is obvious.
Aliens are believed to hold a high mental capacity; it is possible that they will displace people on earth as far as the employment sector is concerned. The American society has significantly focused towards the diversifying of the employment sector. As a result, the rate of unemployment has been receiving successive refurbishments. In this case, the society is reliant on the government in the provision of jobs. Alien are beings that have uniquely powerful character traits and abilities. Unlike human labour, Aliens is not subject of getting tired. Conflicts are hence likely to be the resultant feature in these communities. In this case, the nature of communities will be identified in regard to the extent and emphasis that follow the advent of Aliens. Communities cannot take it lightly when such events that culminates to a majority of its population jobless and having nothing to cling on. In essence, it is a common feeing that employers seek reliable and most efficient labour, the phenomenon will be a unavoidable instance. It is rather clear that Aliens may affect the employment sector. The sector largely supports daily affairs of the people (Fuhnam) "The truth is out there: the structure of beliefs about extraterrestrial life among Austrian and British respondents." Due to the esteemed reliance on employment, a slight twist on this set up will substantially disrupt the way in which cultures were appreciated in different communities.
Interactions are essential when it comes to the affairs of any community. Aliens do not have similar attributes and characteristics with human beings. It is in appreciation to the act that Aliens have actuated aspect of human beings. It is therefore expected that Aliens may overreact or underreacton circumstances that concern them and the people in existence on the surface of the earth which is the earth to be precise. In the event an Alien interacts with a normal person, it is realistic to assume that, the human being will undergo circumstances that will complement to torture and other forms of inhuman treatments. In response, the society will not take the position for granted, it will, however, follow the case to its roots. In the long run, friction will develop between normal people and Aliens issues that revolved. Aliens do not have qualities for good living such as, honesty, love, affection and respect.
As result, the number of conflicts reported will have doubled. Similarly, this feature is brought up by the fact that Aliens will obviously offer better services in the employment sector to an extent that human beings assuming a normal perception in life issues will lack jobs. The absurd further results in the event that, some the bureaucracies in place decide to retrench some workers so as to accommodate the reliable aliens. According to a study conducted on the zones that largely create a basis for interaction of people towards a utilitarian approach of issues that matter most to the community, it was established that, the employment sector tops the list. It is at this point that, at this point in time, people are able to discuss issues that are in the context of religion, economics and politics. By in co-operating the idea about aliens to the same society, it is possible that it will significantly decrease all the affairs that the society deems most important.
Aliens are manifestations of evolution in process. They are basically improvements on the human aspects. The question before any community, be it in the US, will be on whether aliens will end up ruling all spheres of life that largely impact towards people’s affairs. How plausible is it to state the society will be opposed to instances that will subject it at the leadership and direct control of their lives. The community is likely to have reacted that way because of fear. Fear is likely to engulf the community to such an extent that members of the same society will have mental positions that will be in support of the notion that Aliens are other forms of evil(Dixit) "Relating to Difference: Aliens and Alienness in Doctor Who and International Relations."
When it comes to the context the identifies Aliens as strangers in a foreign land, the following instances come out; A person in a foreign land does not fully understand the culture of the new land and conditions that are expected to always be in due regard. Disruptions in practices and culture of a society are an often phenomenon in display.
it is true to come to a position that, the reaction of a community towards the idea of Aliens depends on myths, personal takes, religious influences and other social cycles that major the survival of humanity. Similarly, it has been observed that the Aliens pauses a great threat in the event that they are accepted in a society .In this regard, The American society has been selected as a case study in the discussions (Sluscher). It comes out that, the social fabric that holds the society and the community at large together is likely to have received a wavy aspect. In the same context, religious positions and perceptions of a community are the expected victims of the impacts of Aliens invasion on a country.
In summary, Aliens take different forms as a result of their different definitions. Their impacts to the society are not on a positive notch. The society in context is exposed to factors that do not add value and essence to the overall functioning towards benefitting the society. From the fact that the social fabric is weakened as result of aliens, the nature of the society is identified. It is important to come to terms that the idea about aliens takes an angle of fiction. In the event that it came to reality, the aforementioned observations, impacts and effects would be the issues in contestation. However, perceptions and myths are the guiding principles towards these phenomena. In summation, the above described instances are in support of the take by people in the way they fear Aliens with regards to the impacts by aliens.
