Final Analysis and Binding Judgement of the Celestial Consortium
The Celestial Consortium thanks you for your participation in the Base Level Personality Profile and Character Assessment for emergent species (BLP). While these scores are used to determine emergent species’ suitability for colonization of other worlds, it is important to remember that the scores for individual traits themselves are neither good nor bad. For the most part, these scores have little impact on day to day activities, may be helpful in some situations and detrimental in others. This test merely approximates your personality and the character of your species. Specifically, the BLP is designed to identify and assess characteristics of young, or emergent, species in a neutral setting to determine suitability, potential, and safety in expansion beyond the confine of their native worlds.
The BLP assesses the following characteristics:
Past research and experience have identified these characteristics as most indicative of readiness and suitability in allowing species to explore and colonize worlds beyond their original planet of origin, and helps to promote harmonious relations among and between the more advanced races. While these findings are final, species truly interested in moving beyond their home planetary location may petition the office of the Celestial Registrar for reevaluation once in any given millennium. Your species will be eligible for reevaluation in 3016. We encourage you to begin early preparation for this assessment and to reapply at that time.
The format of the BLP is divided into three primary components, each of which is subdivided into multiple sub-components. Answers and responses to specific queries were gathered from individuals, groups, and historical source material to provide both a broad overview and specific individual examples to allow for a rich pool of data for this assessment. In all, 17.9 terabytes of data were analyzed. The components of the assessment are as follows:
1) Did you dream?
A) Did you invest (time, energy, money, etc.) in your dream?
B) Did you fulfill your dreams?
2) Given a dream, were you:
–willing to sacrifice (personally) for it?
–willing to sacrifice the health, needs, safety or dreams of others?
–willing to sacrifice the lives of others for it? If so, how many?
3) Faced with love or hate, which did you most often choose to:
Analysis: While this young species has enormous potential, they face numerous hurdles in evolving further as a species. At the root of these issues seems to be an inability to differentiate between fact and belief. A clear example of this lies in the western concept of self as individual and separate from others of the same species and environment, a notion completely unsupported by data but held as a higher truth than any fact. Additionally, an inability to consider long term consequences or to practice any kind of moderation of appetites in the pursuit of wealth, consumption, and ideology reveals this species to be highly destabilizing to any organized system with a strong propensity towards violence and a potential of source biological and ideological pathogenesis. Finally, this species is deeply ingrained by streaks of xenophobia that make it highly unsuitable for colonization beyond its own planetary boundaries.
Conclusion: At this time, the board finds that this species should be denied both extraplanetary colonization and exploration, and should be quarantined until they evolve beyond their current stage of development or go extinct. No intervention to promote survival is recommended. This planet is officially designated an F5 quarantine zone; travel is restricted, trade is prohibited, and all visitors are required to pass through level 5 quarantine on leaving the planet.
