Why not? We send messages from low earth orbit all the time. Why couldn't advanced aliens?
A message from space, especially from low earth orbit would not be access restricted. Anyone who chose to tune to the right frequency (including a lot
of well equipped amateur radio operators) would be able to pick it up.
Because it makes many assumptions that we don't know if they are valid. It depends on what you define as advanced itself, all we got it some clues to
advanced craft in Earth's atmosphere, beyond that it is speculation. In any case a message from space to be validated must be sent from a
considerable distance as to be triangulated by several observatories. Since we have no indication that they use radio we must assume that they use
other forms of communication even some that we may not be aware off. There are plenty of reasons why they wouldn't do it in a way conventional to us,
in any case it wouldn't be freely accessible to the general population and it would disclosure location.
Why not? Presumably they are more advanced than us, why the secrecy? What could they possibly be afraid of that stamping a "message" in a bunch of
crops seems like a smart way to communicate given the better alternatives they would have ruled out?
We don't know why the secrecy we only know that they are secret and avoid direct contact. There is plenty of reasons to be afraid especially if we
consider the other factors our best guess that they don't particularly care about interacting openly with human society. We also don't know the
intended destination for the crops, since they are often only observable from above we should not assume that they are even intended for humans (or
I already covered several reasons why they may chose crop circles I asked you viable alternatives considering the characteristics of the method
selected, that I presented as restrictions that relate well for what would be some of their requirements.
And here is where I call B.S. It takes far more energy to stamp simple message out in a crop than to send 2 megabytes of data via WIFI.
Again you make several assumptions and considerations that do not apply. Signal encoding especially using human technology would be even more easily
falsifiable and would require disclosure of source and target. I think any restriction of energy use would be to avoid detection especially from
Simple. I'd send a message via a satellite at one of the Lagrange points. They aren't the easiest places for humans to get to and from L5 the energy
requirements would still be less than stamping some nonsense puzzle in a field.
Beyond some objects flying over Luna I'm not aware of any observation of UFOs outside of Earth (I exclude Mars and Jupiter since the first has very
few UFO observations and the second has several good explanations and the UFOs did not demonstrate abnormal physics capabilities). I myself am still
in the fence regarding the "close" objects observed during NASA missions on Low Earth Orbit. But I do believe in that "alien" crafts fly/swim on
Earth and on an continued "alien" presence.
No but if they are intelligent, technologically sophisticated beings more advanced than us (and if they could get here then obviously they would be)
then I would think they'd have a better way of making contact than duplicating some guys prank from the 1970s.
Agree, but as I stated my objection was to the term stupid, I think I presented several constrains that would make in not stupid at all.
Imagine a fifth column that lives infiltrated in human society and wishes to remain unobserved but at the same time needs to communicate (for example
among themselves or with observation crafts). Using other methods may make them more vulnerable to discovery (require possession of alien tech. or
vulnerable by using human tech., consider what we now know about the NSA for instance), in any case my list of requirements was based on the facts we
can extrapolate and useful to consider such method not stupid (after-all I was defending that point).
Can you present any other method that conforms to the requirements ?
