If we discovered Warp Speed today and found life tomorrow on another planet that was just like us technologically and politically minus warp speed. Would we make contact?

I doubt it. It would be dangerous to contact us if your own species are not way far advanced to us militarily.

What do you think.

Would we contact us?

Nope!
I would fly around in their skies at night. Deliberately being seen, then speeding off.
Play cat and mouse with their military craft.
Send them a few weird radio signals every once in a while.
And every so often, take aboard various members of their population against their will,
In order to study them ....and wipe their memories afterwards.

Actually, that sort of sounds familiar.

You could detect the targeting radar, I would hope.
WHAT do you think?

I'd jump on the first ship taking off and leave this rock forever.

Never to be heard from again.

You've got quite the timeline there, warp speed right now, and then within 24 hours, we build a ship capable of using warp speed and find an alien homeworld. This is the kind of stuff that will hopefully happen down the line, 100 years from now, at least.

Technologically? maybe initiate contact.
Technologically AND politically?...Run AWAY! warp factor 11...

Any extraterrestrials studying us are most like a million year more technologically advanced. I doubt they would be interested in anything of our technology. I think extraterrestrials would love us and study us the way we study nature and animals on Earth.

We would conquer them, it's what we do as a species.

They might be interested in our vast movie library, etc.
We could be the entertainment hub of the galaxy.

I would observe them over time and see how they live, they maybe peaceful and not war hungry like us, if so then I'd make contact and possibly give them our technology (with conditions​)..If they're like us then I'd play games with them just like the ET's do with us then possibly make contact.

Possibly but not necessarily. We only need to understand how to warp space to do it (if it is even possible). One discovery could open the universe to exploration while we still driving gasoline powered cars.

Here here. If we find one I'll get your address and come get you. I'll need a good crew. Lol.

And as we do with aid to under-development nations and peoples, they would supply help. Perhaps it would not be physical help of material things but information for us to make ourselves more civilized and safer. Such as was evidently the case with the creature named Oannes that came to the early Sumers with technical information as Sagan mentioned in Intelligent Life in the Universe.

Life is within our solar system. Light speed would help, but is not required.

I don't think being a million years more advanced is needed. Look what man has done since 1900 when Ford started building cars. In one hundred years, look what we have accomplished. If it takes a million years to advance intelligence to the needed point, it would seem 'they' are dullards in reality, plodding and stumbling...

Possibly microbial life but i really don't imagine there is anything alive that's sentient in the same manner as our own race, within our own star system. Else we would have detected there communications or seen some other evidence of there existence by now.

Then again all we really have to go by is our own interpretation of what constitutes life.

Fact of the matter is in an infinite universe of infinite combination and diversity life could be all around us and we simply could not see the forest for the trees given our distinct lack of information and understanding pertaining to the subject.

Plus, we may not even be around in a million years ourselves, let alone an alien species and civilization being around for 1 Million+ years.

I'm not saying we are necessarily going to destroy ourselves or blow ourselves up (although that's possible, too). What I'm saying is the 1 Million years is a looooonnng time for one civilization to last (in my opinion, since we have nothing to compare this against).

First of all, we will no longer be us in 1 million years. Consider that modern humans have only been around for about 225,000 yeas as a species. A million years ago on Earth, our ancestors were not human.

Secondly, I think there are too many reasons for a single continuous civilization to die out before 1 million years. I don't think a continuous civilization would be able to pass along its knowledge for that long in order to keep building upon its knowledge base.

Somewhere along the way, I think any civilization is fated to have its own "dark ages" (or several times of dark ages along the way) in which their knowledge base takes huge steps backward, maybe even coming close to resetting itself.

For those reasons, I doubt there many civilizations out there that have been progressing their technology forward for 1 million years.

Or a more likely scenario - we discover warp speed tomorrow and never find life because space is completely devoid of it.

Possible, but highly doubtful.

The observable universe is an incredibly huge place, and I don't think Earth is that special.

Look at this image below -- the original version of the Hubble Deep Field Image. Except for three stars, each one of those big blobs and tiny dots is a galaxy (more than 3000 of them), and this is just a tiny tiny tiny part of the sky; smaller than the size of a BB gun BB held out in front of you at arm's length.

Now consider you are an alien on the other side of the universe looking at your own version of the Deep Field image. One of those tiny anonymous dim dots that are barely registering as a pixel in that image could be our Milky Way galaxy. And again, this is just a minuscule small part of the sky, and an even more minuscule part of the universe.


Granted, we have no hard proof of intelligent alien life, so it is still within the realm of possibility that Earth is the only intelligent life in the entire universe, but considering the scope of the universe, and considering what we know about the ability of life as we know it to be tenacious and persevere in the harshest environments, I think it is incredibly unlikely that we are alone.

Look at all the evidence, Alien Life has found us already and it is here, just not in your backyard and very probably our secret Military already has Warp speed capable spaceships... heck you can buy an actual plastic model of the TR-3B.
