1st Grade Fringe

Hope you're right, we don't bother them and they won't bother us, if they'd just lay off the probing they'd be perfect neighbours.1 - Not just more advanced, we in all likely hood will be millions or even billions of years behind them in technology. Look back 200 years to begin to comprehend the tech difference. We would have 0 chance if they decided to annihilate us using methods we could not even imagine...
3 - I believe they will be drones - I believe all highly advanced being will live less in real life and more in a virtual world. They may just be brains hooked up to an alien internet. Of floating in a cloud... remote bionic ‘bodies’ will do the donkey work and they will ‘log in’ to them to live through them as needed.
4 - I believe they are not hostile and merely observing. What could we possibly offer them? Every mineral, resources, etc could be gathered from any of the billions of other planets that offer no resistance... we are just a curiosity.
5 - I wouldn’t worry about annoying them - I doubt we could harm them if we tried. They would just laugh at our pathetic attempts and possibly look back when their own society was primitive and acted on emotions. Sort of like when a 2 year old has a tantrum and you feel sorry for them, with poor self regulation, poor impulsivity and inability to control themselves. But as the adult you ignore it, knowing that it’s only a developmental stage and one day they will mature.
