It is easier for us to search the heavens for some sort of UNatural RF then it is send one single probe or ship to a star on the assumption it has
planets with life on them.
RF is energy. Energy that would mean we can pinpoint its source to a close proximity.
As we have evolved ourselves with the use of RF for computers, we have discovered that a faster rate of data uses more spectrum. This can be applied
to those searching for alien RF.
Aliens today could very well be using a similar sort of bandwidth that is so large that the only way to determine it is a Alien transmission is to
capture the signal as a whole. Small bits and pieces may not be enough for our equipment to determine it is unnatural RF.
It is my own belief that if Aliens can really transverse the Universe in terms we view in hours,days,months,years then they know enough about Physics
to conduct wireless communications that exceed the speed of light constant which is applied to general RF theory.
In saying that, our future for SETI should be to develop new quantum mechanic communication models that would change our understanding of RF theory
and produce equipment that would look for RF signals in ways similar to the current theories of quantum mechanics.
Perhaps we are looking for physical energy as it applies to our dimension.
If a space and time can be bent or changed by aliens, it stands to reason we can look for ways to detect those changes.
We need to be looking in places for those changes. Just like some UFO Investigators like to say: If there's a UFO crash, and theres no physical
evidence, it either did not happen, or we are looking in the wrong place.
SETI may not have found anything. All it means is that they may be looking in the wrong spectrum...all they need is the one time to be looking in the
right spectrum...and eventually with determination one can find what they are looking for.
What was it that someone said to Edison....why did you keep trying to make a light bulb when after 2000 times you failed?
Edison responded in kind..."its not 2000 times I failed...it was 2000 times it didn't work...I only needed one time to find the right way to make it
I think SETI is practicing the same train of thought.
