Under your earlier propositions in which Earth's trade has been reduced to AIs, operating solely in say ecological and ethical /neuronal relationships, how will Earth convince these aliens (Ferrengis- sp?) to join in meaningful dispositions? This isn't a trick question and I hope you have the answer. For example, will our communication nets be so open and persuasive as to absorb and convince all comers to give freely?
