I thank all for the input.
But how could we understand the message from E.T.?
I was thinking about this. It comes down to communication. A communication involves a
sender and a receiver. The sent message could be intentional or not. I'm assuming that we are talking about an intentional message. So we use
sound to communicate. We have learned to encode our language into writing but when we read, we "hear" the words in our minds. So written words are
ET may have a completely different way to communicate. Maybe they communicate like ants or bees using chemicals. Where would we even start in a case
like that? So we look for patterns that are familiar to "us" and that seems illogical.
Now the aliens are probably super intelligent and if they are aware of us, they would try to communicate with us with what we are familiar with.
Sounds. Now if they are really good, they would have learned English and are driveling away on the Internet as we speak.
Maybe we are already talking to ET but arent aware...So the question is how do we know who the aliens are here?
