I was reading my local paper today and they interviewed a Cosmology Consultant from New Scientist Magazine. His answers were really interesting:
Will We Ever Find ET?
I hope so but one of my worries is that we wouldn't be able to see it. The reason we know a tree isn't man-made is because it's so complicated -
but technology is becoming so complicated that it'll become indistinguishable from a natural thing. So, if there is a civilization years ahead of us,
it could be that we wouldn't be able to recognise it.
So They Could Be Here Already?
We think they'd use radio dishes to communicate, so we look for radio waves. Their communication could be going through our office or living room in
a form we don't recognise. I'm certain that there are extraterrestrials out there but it will be very difficult to spot them. The evidence could be
out there, staring us in the face, and we wouldn't know.
To me that's a pretty staggering theory, that they could under our noses and we can't even recognise them!!. What do you think?
