as if It Is, to be known

I'm glad to see this article, “NASA Scientist: 'We May Have Missed Signals from Aliens Capable of Interstellar Travel,’”especially since it's sponsored by S.E.T.I.
I wrote to Seth Shostak (lead astronomer for SETI) recently that he shouldn't be so dismissive of unexplained Unidentified Aerial Phenomena ("UFO"s), as he has been. He didn't reply. I look forward to reading the Ames/SETI discussion that is referenced.

If there are vast differences in the technologies of The Other and ourselves, there would be no discernible relationship between “intelligence we might find and that might choose to find us.” What finds us would recognize that It isn’t to be found yet.
