hehe i like the thought that aliens are just waiting on the dark side of the moon watching and the second we launch all our nukes they're going to
blow them out the sky
Alas i doubt it, for some serious reasons.
Yeah i'm sure aliens would love to watch nature documentrys about the developing world and its crazy little savages, however the model he is using
suggests that there are a lot of life supporting planets and also that life frequently turns into an advanced society type one or two and sometimes
type 3. Things brings with it the issue that we're not all that special.
To be honest as a race we humans could be fairly rubbish, our worthy literature and music might be worse than the universal average, our paintings
bland and uninspired, our rituals and beliefs dull and obvious - plus we might be a universal standard, a billion planets might have weird little
bipeds who spend all their time fighting before at some point destroying their planet or being destroyed by freak gamma rays, etc -nothing new or
exciting, maybe all life which has reached type 2.5 is nothing like us? They've seen a million times this spread of rudamentary carbon based protean
machines on worthless rock planets all over the universe, sure they've studied a few, watched as they flung their spore into space tying to infect
another planet before the flash of fire or the entire infected area has been consumed and the people fade away.
It's very egotistical to think that aliens would care about us, even more so to think they would be like us. It is of course just as likely that
alien cleaning ship 253 is due to pass through this sector any time now and disinfect any rocks which have developed people. Maybe they get really
angry when we ruin their rock oil or maybe they're just going to shove a tube into the center of the earth an suck out our earths core with no regard
to what happens to us.
I would guess that any aliens would focus their anthropologists in a more dense area of the universe, i doubt they would even bother coming to this
backwarter solar system at all. heh maybe this is only used for mining, dangerous science or maybe a superweapon test area? They might want to
destroy all the suns making a massive no gravity zone or any number of wildly unguessable things.
hehe maybe they're waiting until we've turned the natural resources into something else then they're going to move us closer to the sun to cook the
earth before eating it with covered in crispy mars rocks? After all do you think the bacteria in a cheese would know, or accept it's whole existence
is mearly to turn cows milk to cheese for us?
All in all i would say the chances of being consumed by a gigantic galatic jamie oliver could be as low as one in four even in the next ten years.
my point being, he doesn't have enough data to even guess at odds, yet he is happy to give them? hmmm...
