ALIENS KNOW NOTHING. ( introducing the world to an infant, they want to know more and more

Everything around is made by people
People do not live in a bubble
People carry the marks of the people that came before them
These marks affect the way people going about life
This is being human
Computers are covered in the marks of being human. They are filled with humanness.
