If you could send a message in one sentence to aliens, what would it be?

If you were able to send a message one sentence long to aliens that they would be able to understand, what would you say?

I feel like if we were only given one sentence you can't really say anything too deep or philosophical, but quite honestly I'd just tell them "us aliens really do exist, and have been trying to find out more about you for a long time." Giving them confirmation of our existence I feel would be pretty cool to them.

And for the sake of the question, if you don't believe aliens exist (despite the fact that it would be extremely unlikely that they didn't) then just assume they do.

@Luma Party
While that is certainly true, I'm just asking what you would say if it could be understood by any kind of alien. Because even if the other life out there were to be as intelligent as humans, that obviously doesn't mean it'd speak our language.

@Queen Glitter Fairy
Oh man. XD More than one sentence though, you're breaking the rules! But I'll accept it because it's still hilarious.

@Gameguy1996
What if we don't want them to attack earth though? Razz

Get a random quote from tumblr, they'd be frightened and stay away, or just realize that there's nothing of importance here from it, either way.

I think it's best if all 'intelligent' alien races (assuming there are any) remain blissfully unaware of each other. Maybe alien civilizations exist, but they're intelligent enough to not let anyone find out about them?

So if I had to send a message, it would be "don't even think about coming here, we'll all regret it". I can't think of a single possible scenario that would lead to something positive for either part.

I would obviously say: "Can I ask you more sentences?"

@Frost-Knight
Well that's an interesting prospective if we find out about their existence. Personally I feel like we could make it work out. I don't think we should be living with each other or going to war, but I'm sure both species would be interested in meeting each other, so I don't see why doing so would be a bad thing. (of course it depends on what exactly they'd be like)

A good instance of things working out would be something along the lines of the show 'Alien Nation' (my mom loved this show) since the show was more of a positive spin on aliens coming to our world & living among us humans.

Well, since they probably wouldn't understand English, anything I could say to them would probably be wasted on them Razz . 

So, instead, I'd probably send a beautiful piece of music, to demonstrate to them, without the use of any language, that we exist, we're intelligent, and we're peaceful Smile .

^ That's an interesting thought. Of course, I was asking what you would say if they could indeed understand us, but obviously if we were able to communicate with them or send information, it wouldn't be understood by them. So music would be a good way to do that. The question is, what song?

@Queen Glitter Fairy
I've never seen that show, but maybe I'll check it out if I find it on Netflix or something. I feel like the idea of aliens living with us is kind of weird either way, mostly because I can imagine some people wanting to...you know, do things with them. :p

I'd rather not speak to aliens. Assuming they understand our language, it would be risky to say something because you wouldn't know if something that's normal for us would offend the aliens. Perhaps they have a different sense of morality. Would it be worth communicating with them?

If I had to. I think I'd say "It would be great to know more about you.". Hopefully they'd be fine with it.
