If you could send a message to an extraterrestrial civilization, what would you say? This is not just some scenario I made up, it's the real thing.
SETI is taking your suggestions for what to say to the aliens, when and if discovered, that is. The new project is called "Earth Speaks," and messages are being solicited online, from people all over the world.
SETI spokesman and Chief Executive Officer of the Institute in Mountain View, California put it this way:
“By submitting text messages, pictures, and sounds from across the globe, people from all walks of life will contribute to a dialogue about what humanity might say to intelligent beings on other worlds.”
It's easy really, just go to Earth Speaks, and send in your message. But first, you have to tell us what you would say.

Don't eat my brains!!!!!!1
I'm curious about what folks here at ATS would say that's different from the "mainstream" messages they're soliciting. The top keywords on the SETI page right now seem to be "hope", "peace", and "friendship".
Laudable messages, but rather trite. What message would you send, that you're pretty sure TPTB would never allow?

I would not be asking them anything as you will have no authority as a human species to ask. You would be told what and what not to do and thats about the reality of it all.
