He's a great guy with a solid delivery style but, like all scientists, he states his own personal thoughts as facts.
I agree with 90% of the things he says but the idea that visitors from another planet would not be interested in Humans/any lifeform that originated
on another planet ( demonstrated by the conversation with a worm rhetorical analogy) is absurd.
I personally have not had a conversation with a worm but I'm sure there are over 1000 humans right now studying worm beahviour/habitat somewhere on
If we take this to the next step by adressing the animals we consider to have intelligence; Chimpanzees and Dolphins; I bet there are at least 10,000
people currently studying/testing/conversing with these animals right now in the search for understanding.
Why do these people waste their valuable time???
Untill you know it all; you have to turn over every stone in the process of understanding and although we dont have many answers here on Earth; any
being visitng this sector would be guaranteed to study/observe us in some way.
More than anything...the overiding desire to understand the observers reality seems to be at the cornerstone of intelligence and to warrant the vast
resource requirments of interstellar travel; you can bet the farm these beings would be interested in communicating/studying lifeforms from another
The only being not interested in the unknown is the being who knows it all already so unless we're talking omnipotent beings or gods; the assumption
humans and earth has nothing to offer is silly.
Higher dimension consciousness is where it's proabbly at...and in that case theres no reason for us to ever know if we are being observed/communicated
