Well, if I understand what you wrote correctly generally I'd say that humans "encounter" other people very often in one way or another   :) 

But "alien encounters" are not the reason for most of the interest in Astronomy, astrophysics and the space program, I'll wager. 

Gayle, would you please give some explanation for your original post and your thoughts on the subject?  As you can read in the thread there were some different thoughts on why you started this thread and what you meant.

Thank you.
