Yes, that's right...we're talking about no smartphone messaging, no social media posts and no emailing extravaganzas.
AHaHaAHhhhh....you are feeling panicked just thinking of it.
What would you do if you had an unexpected encounter with a Visitor and you were unprepared?
It's scary, you wouldn't know The Visitor and they wouldn't know you.
What would you talk about? The weather? Same old boring small talk?
Yes, there are some of us, humans, that struggle getting good and deeply-connected conversations going when meeting others for the first time. For most part, they tend to be surface level interactions. A little small talk is necessary to ignite connection, but the true joy happens when the conversation has a little more depth. So our team here at Hello There Human have reached out to The Experts to guide us, to educate us and share their highly sensitive research on how to best to communicate with The Visitors and why we need to create deeper connections.
No worries. We have you covered.
So let's start preparing now and let the connections begin.
Hello There Human Mission
An Audio Introduction by D. Scott Smith
We live in a connected world full of people longing for connection, longing for REAL LIFE FACE-TO-FACE CONNECTION.
Social media has been an amazing tool to connect us all, yet we, humans are feeling more isolated as our views are becoming even more insulated. In turn, we are more divided than ever to the point that it seems like the only thing that would truly unite us, as humans, would be an alien invasion.
That is what “Hello There Human” mission is all about…getting back to basics. It's aim is to narrow down those hundreds of social media friends to just two humans—one human connecting to one human face-to-face, Human2Human. Through education, awareness and action, we want to encourage others, if just for moment, to set aside their device and communicate with other humans around them. In turn, fostering an greater understanding and a deeper connection between us all. So it's time for us to prepare for an encounter because you too may soon be greeted with a friendly "Hello There, Human"
