the disclosure of aliens by the government has been so smooth it's really been no shock at all if you think about it, 2 hidden government-led investigative programs spanning 4 decades, a couple dozen alien-centric hollywood movies and tv shows and perhaps a dozen "ufo mystery" open-ended documentaries in the last 3 decades, 13,000,000 released documents, interviews and videos and the creation of a military space force in the last 11 days
Aside) There is a belief also that life elsewhere will be so different from DNA-based life that it may be unrecognizable. Again, likely *some* life is, but DNA components are actually not rare in space, and there are many related structures near to DNA that could lead to things with similar composition and properties in my humble opinion.
END) So, on the contrary, I think in the diversity of life in space, the subset that can achieve interplanetary travel, we are actually very likely to preferentially notice those who share a lot of our common motivations. I don't think anthropomorphism of greys is by default a bad starting point to begin our understanding.
4) They have warned us through telepathy to stop environmental destruction, and demonstrated how to kill nuclear missile launches. In the same way we would try to change the environment to slow invasive species from destroying it, or police ourselves from pollution, these actions suggest they share a similar regard for preserving life.
3) They're reported to examine humans, erasing our memories after. This is so similar to humans who study other animals it's hard not to project our motivation of increasing our knowledge onto them.
2) They are physical and technology oriented. Their vehicles leave physical impressions and they physically travel inside of the vehicle. We exhibit precisely the same characteristics and "drive" to travel to far off places. This behavior could be the result of some totally unrelatable motivation or no motivation at all, but that in my opinion is less likely than we share some of the same motivations.
1) They look like us. Either they do naturally (convergent evolution) or can project a relatable image to us. In both cases, this suggests we're somewhat likely to be able to communicate. (Indeed, even very different animals can communicate shared sentiments to one another on Earth.) Of course, there may be ultra diverse aliens out there, and maybe because they are diverse, they are unrecognizable. But with greys, this is not the case.
