Though to be honest this sort of thing to me screams of intelligence. It would be certainly a good way to send a large wave hello we are here signal,
since it does not conform to how normal radio signals perform from known sources.
Star and Flag.
I'm not very familiar with the location of M83 in regards to other galaxies near the Milky Way, I believe it to be in the Hydra Centaurus
Supercluster, but it could very well be in the Hydra Cluster or the Centaurus Supercluster... We're dead smack in the middle of all 3 so I'm not to
certain which one to go with. (I feel like I'm on a game show) But regardless, all three galaxies / clusters with their nearest reach, are all well
over 10 million light years away from Earth.
What would be the purpose to send out a radio signal saying "hello, we're here"? If it was indeed Intelligent life that sent out the constant raido
signal, the event happened millions of years ago, Surely they would be long past dead by now maybe even extinct. Obviously theres no harm in trying,
apart from attracting attention to our location, possibly even un-wanted attention from a outside source that just happens to pick up our signal. I'm
a little skeptical sending out blind radio signals that can pin point our location in the galaxy, just on the fact our evolution process has struggled
to get past killing ourselves
I know people are curious and intrigued to come in contact with Alein species, but I think we're going about it all wrong, we might be better off not
knowing in certain cases then opening up a can of worms we cant cover back up. If there was a friendly Alein species out there that was capable of
making contact with us, you would think they would of intervened already in our progression, instead of letting our species destroy one of; the very
few planets that can harbor life.
Aleins probably visit us and see us driving around in Hummers and tears trickle down their face, we're still a very primitive species to what exists
out there. Our technologies in the past 50 years has been impressive, but our train of thought and our abilities to explore the universe are still
very minimal. We're still burning holes in our o-zone layer, the only thing keeping us alive from the harshness of the universe, and if racism still
exists on our planet today, what makes people think species-ism doesn't exist in the universe?
Just some food for thought.
