It occurs to me SeTI has not and will not be successful because stars and life bareing worlds around them ,are just too damn far apart. I think
Astronomical distances are such because were not supposed to know about or have contact with others, were separate experiments. Afterall, were barely
evolved above clubbing each other, except we dont use tree branches anymore. Tecknological advances mean little outside earth.
Why are monkeys in zoos often surrounded by uncrossable distances, i.e moats? because there not supposed to cross, i think were the same and space is
How else do you contain an ecosystem and prevent interference with others when some beings of that system, do or will evolve to explore space?
I think also the concept of races millions of years more evolved than us is also still just assumption, afterall, some folk beleive this world has
gone through cycles of evolution, why not all worlds? maybe theres an evolutionary limit, set by nature or set by the scientist(GOD)?
Perhaps none are allowed to evolve enough for interstellar travel because none are intended to.
The rats in one lab dont contact the rats in another. because they are separate experiments? because of risk of disease transmission?
Or simply sheer difference. we dont communicate, we murder each other and have eaten each other.
just imagine how many lifeforms we would treat the way we treat food animals and each other, and how many would treat us that way.
the beings from the movie alien would be last i would want to have the means to come to earth if they existed, and whos to say they dont,
