If they resemble us in some nasty habits and "virtues", then I hope they 
will not find us. I don't think Indiands and Aborigines consider 
themselves lucky, even though from my own perspective some aspects of, 
say, Mayan culture, were not nice either.

And the process of "finding" continues nowadays, only it is performed by 
benevolent mining corporations.
