Hug the alien. Aliens love hugs.

Wave back and do an interpretative dance in front of the alien to entice a response.

Find a few small items. Put one item next to a "1", two next to a "2" (and nothing next to "0") and so on up too ten so they understand how that we have a concept of numbers and how to read our's.
Then write out 100 digits of pi next to a circle.

You do realize that requires !10 of these small items just to map the information in our base 10 system. So that means 55 items. Then to write out the first 100 digits of pi would be 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679, so let me take a second to add this all up.

That's 474 items, along with something to explain as decimals, and a place-holder to represent 0 items in something other than a lack of an example.

That's really complicated. I think what would be better would be to: Wave back, and then position yourself with your palms visible, in a non threatening position. If contact is possible, begin by pointing to yourself and saying "Human". This is our new name until we return home. Then gesture to the ETI for them to follow suit. Provide more examples as needed.

No, it's 55 items. You use those to establish the symbols then use those symbols to write out pi.

and a place-holder to represent 0 items in something other than a lack of an example
I think they'll figure it out.

along with something to explain as decimals
Good point actually. Draw "1.5" and put one and a half of whatever you've been using next to it.

Yes. On reflection I could have made the clearer.

Ignore all the ****ty thoughts you keep having about numbers of objects, that's an order!
