>> So how can we meet ANOTHER more superior race of aliens? Are they more
>> First Ones? Are they the Firstest Ones? Did they come from another galaxy?
>> Did Lorien forget to mention them?

I would point out that the universe is billions of years old. If someone
thinks that we've met even a fraction of what's out there, someone is being
extraordinarily foolish.

As to why Lorien might not mention them -- or the several million other species
out there -- there's a logical reason which is implicit in what's presented in
the 2-hour MOW.

Every time we do something new, somebody says it's the end of the
world...usually in a sarcastic way...until they see it, then they go "Oh, now I
see what you were up to." This is more of the same. This happens every single
time. I'm used to it by now.
