i was reading a article about the international academy of astronauts where they talked about active or positive seti or meti. sending messages into
space hoping theyd be picked up by extraterrestrial life. the editor of the confrence said
“It is not obvious that all extraterrestrial
civilizations will be benign, or that contact with even a benign one would not have serious repercussions”. (Nature Vol 443 12 Oct 06 p 606).
also share similiar concerns
- we do not know ALL life outside of earth is friendly.
- we also do not know if anything we contacted would interpret this as a "search for life" they may have weapons targetting systems that operate
like these waves seti sends out and it may be interpretted as a attack or any number of things
- the language barrier: after contact then what? our message could be recieved as a actual message in their language meaning something hostile or
any number of things. after we make contact would we have to continue dialogue . and if we didnt what could this be interpretted as.
their is many other things i could go into but aside from this. i want disclosure as much as anyone else, i wanna know if we are alone and have drawn
my own theory on such things,but i dont believe it is worth putting us all in danger. you have to look at all situations weighing the good against the
bad. some would say they may have a cure for our diseases like aids and cancer,but they may not or they may not even have a want to help us. idonno i
can go a little while longer without being sure rather than having them attacking and knowing they exist. or maybe they are friendly and imjust overly
paranoid i just go with the saying you learn early in life "better safe then sorry"
