Thank you for clarifying where this classification scheme came from Ladyvictoria. I wasn't aware. But it makes more sense, now that I know the
I wonder, how would an agriculture specialist classify the advancement levels of another ET civilization? T1=subsistence farmers, T2=GM mastery,
T3=no need for food?
How about a medical doctor? T1=high death rate, T2=low death rate, T3=extreme longevity + ↑quality of life?
What about an oceanologist/hydrologist?
You know that saying "When you're a hammer, everything starts to look like a nail"? That's part of the problem with this classification scheme.
There are so many variables that define the advancement of a civilization, energy being only one of them. And we already have people that are
far more qualified to quantify what and how to classify civs in a comprehensive manner... Anthropologists. It's their actual jobs.
Type I, II, III.... Gimme a break.
