Counting out telecommunications, I was always puzzled by the fact that scientists intentionally sent probes and beamed signals out into space to
notify anything alive and intelligent out there of our location and presence here.
I mean, if I was to be dropped in the middle of nowhere and knew nothing about who or what lives there, I'd sure be quiet and observe first. Would
you risk walking around in unknown territory shouting "Hellooooo"? Sure, you could always encounter a village of Swedish airline stewardesses, on
the other hand, cannibals. Would you chose to be quiet and observe instead?
Weren't these signal projects kind of selfish and done in a bit of a hurry when one looks at how vulnerable we could be to civilizations much older
It's sometimes better to go unnoticed...
