thank god finally someone has said it, i also highly doubt Stephen Hawking's view about interstellar manners for the following reasons.
1. whilst yes we as the human race still fight for what ever is worth having, we still have not progressed to a level 1 civilization, to properly
manage the earths resources. as well as a one world government free from bias and corruption, I know that might be a stretch but as tech grows control
grows and corruption gets harder to hide(just look at what hacking and portable flash drives have exposed) there's bound to be a wall were secrets
just cant happen. (well anything that is worth knowing) and of course one set of laws that allows freedoms that don't impact on another. now the
whole new world order can be a scary prospect but eventually it will happen in a way that all will be happy under(might take a couple attempts but it
will get there, unless we destroy each other in the progress I dare say that's the most likely outcome due to the diversity of the human race)
despite the fact the Universe is absolutely overflowing with the resources found on Earth, which would be easily accessible to any species capable of
travelling to Earth from another star system.
and for argument sake there's something we have they want. chances are it is easier to trade for it and would be much more cost effective. now when
advanced civilizations on earth traveled to other country it was found easy-er to trade advanced tech for whatever, compared to slaughtering the
inhabitants. as an added bonus the inhabitants of the new found land would even stockpile desired goods for next return. kill em ya got to do the work
yourself, i think that's were the Spanish messed up.
But that doesn't rule the out possibility
most likely what would happen in the event of hostile taking of resources from earth would be snatch and grab, basically were taking this whether you
like it or not, there is nothing that can be done to stop us due to our over whelming tech... last thing we wanna do in an event like this is to
provoke simply because we wouldn't have a clue what cards they have to play with
3 They need this planet as a stronghold for war... either we end up as slaves, possibly pampered, or were boned.
4 there is the possibility for a Geneva convention of a galactic proportion, tho detecting violations would be extremely hard, but who knows
5 given that chances are that there would be a one world government for an alien race to progress, and chances are that migrating populations would be
in close quarters to the origin planet then chances are that the one world government would want to have control over all within its own race to
maintain peace and order by all means necessary, now what about the ones that migrate further you might ask, well population would be of slower growth
because further away from home chances are less migration, now if the further population was to develop non social behavior then the home government
would find out about portray them as terrorist for the greater good
before you ask yer i know what i just said, funny how things seem to go round in circles
2. They didn't put us here
i do like to think that the first one celler's came here by freak accident but could be possible that they were put here, my personal god is what is
depicted on Ben 10, that green sludge thing that has some sort of device that hovers above to give it form, my best guess it a quantum entangle comp
anti grav pump, picture this a multi cell organism were it can divide its groups at will and its whole form can function as a brain, and has
developed tech and decided to seed planets to guarantee existence(what good is a universe with no one to observe(even if your son looks nothing like
and as for AAT well i suppose it seems to answer allot of questions
and as for point 4 if push comes to shove, but id imagine that we'd be classed as an intelligent species and that kind of thing is wrong... i hope
