Once it is out, there's no going back and I fear for what agenda such a revelation would serve.
Will the "real extraterrestrials" be real? Will they be benevolent?
Something Hawking said resonates DEEPLY with me, along the lines of "Look how the european & natives hit it off!"
Do we truly want this? If so, we want the fecelstorm that comes with it. What will that be?
We might have guns, airpower & nukes etc, but what if those were mere arrows against the european guns should we not like their migration & settling
I think Hawking knows best and we should stick to listening. Who knows, maybe the intense effort to switch to closed digital broadcasting is purpose
driven to squelch discoverable signals that could otherwise be picked up by a potentially opportunistic alien infection. Like a hunter listening for
the "gobble" of a wild turkey!
We should stick to listening, as the hunters of the universe probably do. Maybe there's a reason we allegedly haven't received a signal, just
drones/probes checking out the source!
In nature & military evolution, speed is a result of a NEED to catch prey, hit targets. If they are fast enough to get here within less than a life
time, my friends, they probably have a need for speed as I just defined.
