Exactly. We may have no idea what they might or might not want from us here.

An idea I've seen a lot in scifi is that a highly-advanced society, able to satisfy all their material needs, will search the stars for novel ideas and stories.

It`s an interesting thought. After all, what would you do if you never had to work and had everything you needed?

...apart from debate on IAB, I mean.

@Musuko42: Good points! ETIs might come for things we consider mundane, or just as tourists/sight seers.
They're just as likely to consider us "food" or "herd animals" as equals. Send us off to work in factories and mines on other planets.

Just as saffron and truffles are expensive & rare? They might come for exotic foods! It would have to be something really yummy (to them!) to come all that way to get it.

Just like "whalers" used to circle the Earth in sailing ships... spices, teas, fish...

Poor thimg...you should do your homework to realize that SETI is a SEARCH, not contact, not UFO's buzzing the earth`s surface but a SEARCH for life that may or may not exist in the Universe.

You know, a theory that hasn`t been conclusively proven outside of smaller particles in our solar system? A theory that yes needs to have an answer hence debate over the budget of a government program.
