I do not often write in the Aliens and UFO board but I thought id give it a try as this is something I have personally been thinking of lately.
Assuming that aliens exist here for a second with superior technology than our own as I have not made this thread to argue for or against their
Why assume that something that has superior technology is more intelligent than human beings?
From my experience so far in life everything has strengths and weaknesses. Anything that is produced, researched, or planned is effected by the people
or person that is invloved. Nothing can be perfect because the people are not perfect themselves, many might be a weakness but in my own opinion that
is a strength because it not only keeps us together but it gives us our own individuality. Without this we would be no more than mindless drones and I
believe this is the reason that throughout history we as a species eventually find our way out of our own messes regardless of the odds.
When it comes to alien life, for it to be more intelligent than ourselves I find that superior technology does not give a good enough answer for that
because that uses the assumption that others progress just as we do. If they do then it is just as likely that they are one sided in their
progression. However it could mean that they are miles ahead of us in every single part of life.
If this were the case then would that not mean that aliens are drones of exactly the same intelligence as each other that therefore have no need to
question what another does or anythings purpose. Which at the same time would make them quite the opposite of intelligence, more along the lines of
hive like drones and because of this are never progressing at all yet consuming which wont last.
Just raising the question of why people are assuming that anything is more intelligent than ourselves when we could in fact be the first species that
is actually intelligent rather all because of one thing, our differences.
It also occured to me reflecting on what I have just written here, at the rate we are advancing ourselves we could in fact be going backwards when it
comes to diversity and might be on the verge of a drone like existence where we are all the same resulting in extinction.
Im interested to see what others think?
