What can we learn from science fiction?

Fiction, science fiction in particular, shows us how we might behave in situations almost unimaginable through stories from writers who excel at the art and craft of imagination.

One thing we can take from science fiction stories, regardless of their outcomes, is that threats to our world from hostile aliens or rogue asteroids would be met with world populations coming together as one to do whatever it takes to save life on Earth. Borders would be irrelevant and differences would be overlooked when there is no longer any possibility of ignoring the fact that we are all in the same boat.

Is there a reason to wait for a cosmic calamity to discover what we can achieve by embracing our common humanity?
