  I am so sure you are the best judge of that.

  This is not "objectivity" in any known human language on planet earth.
  Please get abducted again and consult their intergalactic dictionary
  before you return.  Better yet, do not return, teach them Scheme so they
  never get around to implement a sufficiently "pure" invation strategy.

  The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture
  has taught you.  Your future observations, conclusions, and beliefs are
  more important to you than those in your past ever will be.  The world is
  changing so fast the balance between the past and the future has shifted.
