      The discovery of alien life or Earth-like planets and the implications
      to the world was a crucial item on the agenda at the annual World
      Economic Forum, or WEF, in Davos, Switzerland.

      World business leaders and prominent politicians gathered to discuss
      issues or risks that the world may have to confront in the next decade.

      So how did ETs become part of the mix?

      In conjunction with the international science journal, Nature, the WEF
      came up with five "X Factor" items which it refers to as "unheralded
      dangers that sneak up on us."

      One of those risk issues that Earth and its inhabitants may soon face is
      "the possible social consequences of contact with alien life," according
      to Nature.

      The WEF Global Risks report for 2013 states that "Given the pace of
      space exploration, it is increasingly conceivable that we may discover
      the existence of alien life or other planets that could support human
      life. ... In 10 years' time, we may have evidence not only that Earth is
      not unique, but also that life exists elsewhere in the universe."

      A primary reason why astronomers and astro-biologists are leaning in
      this direction is because of the tremendous success of NASA's Kepler

      "It was only in 1995 that we first found evidence that other stars also
      have planets orbiting them. Now, thousands of 'exoplanets' revolving
      around distant stars have been detected. NASA's Kepler mission to
      identify Earth-sized planets...has been operating for only three years
      and has already turned up thousands of candidates, including one the
      size of Earth," according to the WEF report.

      The risk factor of all of this comes with the long-term psychological
      and philosophical implications that will accompany the discovery of
      alien life.

      "It will suggest that life is as natural and as ubiquitous a part of the
      universe as the stars and galaxies," the report continued. "The
      discovery of even simple life would fuel speculation about the existence
      of other intelligent beings and challenge many assumptions that underpin
      human philosophy and religion."

      The Voice of Russia notes that the WEF team "urges the global elite to
      prepare themselves and their nations for such a discovery. The
      scientists suggest that new funding and new brain power will be needed
      to overcome the challenges that humanity will face as a result of its
      encounter with an extraterrestrial civilization."

      In case you were wondering, the other "X Factor" risk items considered
      by the WEF were:

      • Runaway Climate Change
      • Significant Cognitive Enhancement
      • Rogue Deployment of Geoengineering
      • Costs of Living Longer
