The finding suggests that these bursts must have come from a very exotic object, such as a rotating neutron star having unprecedented power that enables the emission of extremely bright pulses, the researchers say. It is also possible that the finding represents the first discovery of a sub-class of the cosmic fast-radio-burst population.
...that even though they exist for such small durations, they tend to generate so much energy that it could parallel the amount of energy generated by the Sun for a whole day!

To reply to all that say "anything of that power...i.e. the sun...can give off that power and not any other beings". Piss off.

Yeah. Well, that article seems pretty muddled. Don't know 'bout Fiona.
Here's the new paper she's talking about. It includes the data. The detection has a lot to do with where and when the 'scope was aimed, at the time.
This paper states that these types of theories have a high chance of just being observations by "chance superposition".
Many of the "dark matter" theories are likely a result of a similar chance correlation.
The observed estimated center of the universe is very different from the original gravitational center of the universe.
The speed of light, the speed of gravity, gravitational lensing, etc clouds our observations and puts them in superposition.
Now with gravity probe "B" we can add frame dragging into the corrective equations that would be needed to trace back the origins of the universe.
Dark matter is likely just a kludge attempt to explain a physical universe that was too complex for the proponents of the theory to understand.

//It could also entail a warning perhaps, about why such messages are so very rare. //
I don't think warnings are rare. All the past prophets seem to agree about certain leitmotifs -- or some subset. And all the modern-day shamans and mediums (there are quite a few of us) are channelling warning messages from the various powers that be. Some of them are not meat in a can or communicating by radio waves. Some of them are right here on earth or in earth, with us.
There is nothing new under the sun, really. At least not if you understand the world according to C.G. Jung.
