ALIEN EXOSOCIOLOGY: OUR TRANSGALACTIC COMMONALITIES

Some astronomers predict that we will have made contact with advanced civilizations on other worlds within 25 years. What might they be like, and — more importantly – how might they act? Dr. Steven R. Van Hook, a researcher in transcultural relations, will consider what universal traits we could share in common with our galactic alien neighbors.
