Another humans are weird Post
If we really are
the only one of the few races that has so much internal war and do shady things then what would they think of modern medicine?
Like, we’ve mentioned some Aliens might regenerate so what might they think of death, they wouldn’t necessarily pursue medicine.
Humans have a self awareness and enough narcissism that we adore learning our history, our evolution, we’re scientists and doctors are arguably the most respected professionals on Earth. If a building has a red cross on it we don’t bomb it, even if we’re at war.
So what if our medicine is like, so advanced that other aliens are genuinely suprised that this tiny planet that’s so young and has so little technological advances has medicine that is years away from what they have?
Think about it, most of our advancements in medicine is because of our own wars, or because a doctor has tortured and experimented on them or just by accident and instead of denying it because of the means, we’ve just gone “oh well, let’s research it humanely from now on, maybe?”
And like, that post about food, and bacteria. Like, our antibiotics is basically mold? I can imagine alien doctors being like “Woah! This is a sterile place, Human Doctor Sarah. Your contaminated experiments should go in the clean room” And Human Dr Sarah just being like ??? “it’s penicillin”
A few other things Medi-Aliens might freak out about:
- “You learnt human anatomy by using corpse?”
- “You used to have open theatre surgery?”
- “So how did you guys invent vaccines?” (And pause for the “he did what to children!?”
- “Wait, why is the weaponised sleeping agent ‘Chloroform’ in the medicine section?”
- “What does ‘donate my body to science’ mean”?
