Four light years away and our closest star and we cannot see it. That baffles my mind in itself!
The signal does look promising. It looks to me like we are now living through disclosure. Its only a short matter of time now before life in space is verified.
You thought wrong.

Yeah, but you don’t stay on single frequency radio either!
Quantum communication is almost a certain right now (the whole astroengineer story). So why radio?
My thoughts are nobody uses such old technology anymore. The whole “look for aliens using our old tech” is kind of disingenuous at best. That we waste money and time on ancient technology is kind of a shame.
Universe is quantum so why should communication be any different?
I agree with you! We are still cut off from the intergalactic internet!!
Subsequently, the same team of astronomers of the initial paper re-examined their data and cited a processing error and recalculated its estimate to 5 parts per billion. In other words, if there's phosphine there likely isn't as much of it. Their results were published in a preprint posted on 17 November to arXiv.

Quantum communication is not a thing, in theory. Entanglement doesn't work like that.
But principles of quantum mechanics can be used to create virtually unbreakable encryption, in theory. Entanglement does work like that.

If we strongly suspect that ET exists, then we must also expect some incredible revelations in science that allow them to get here.
So, we've gone from detecting their communications to them getting here?

So, fold all of this together.
1. Navy releases video of UFOs captured by navy aircraft. DOES NOT DISCOUNT THEM, and MSM basically ignores.
---It made the front 'page' of the BBC website, Sky ran a story of it, pretty sure it was in the papers..so not exactly ignored by the msm.
2. MASKS are REQUIRED worldwide now.
---For fairly sensible reasons though, required for an impending alien invasion is a bit of a stretch.
3. ALL PUBLIC PLACES OF GATHERING ARE CLOSED, especially, CHURCHES. They WANT to control all of social media, but that is a tough one.
----I had a lovely run in our local park today, didn't notice it being closed? Churches also seem to be open where I am too..so your definition of 'all' is a little off.
4. Radio signals now being acknowledged.
----Yep that's right they definitely acknowledged hearing radio proxima sports news, close game I heard between proxy a and proxy c , last minute winner ouch. Actually they just reported a very brief, not yet replicated, unusual signal on a narrow bandwidth, could be anything and likely earth based. Afaik they haven't refound it yet.
We re being conditioned, and I dare say, its for first contact.
Some of the conditions for this would be to try to minimize the exposure of whoever these things are, to our viruses. Get all of us used to wearing masks often. CONDITION us.
This will also throw the churches into a very large upheaval. Expect more to come out from the Catholic church (which they have done b4) that will say something along the lines of "All of Gods creatures are in heaven (both literally and figuratively) and here on Earth.."
BUT. How would you, attempt to explain to us humans that your religion is flawed (I am an Ordained Minister), there are well over 4300 KNOWN religions on this rock, there are MILLIONS of known planets, and all of these have been "Awakened" to the fact that what you have believed for centuries, is in fact flawed.
--quite a few of these religions actually cater for extraterrestrial life, they'd be over the moon if it happened I would think.
Think about it. What would be the reaction to aliens from, say, Iran's Supreme Leader. What would he tell his gazzilions of subjects? THINK IT THROUGH.
The social upheaval would be one that we may not, as a society, survive. Imagine the religious nutcases trying to take the narrative away.
Look at the entire world right now, and stop seeing this crisis, or THAT crisis.. Think about what all of them together mean.
Why is it bad to have someone point out something true? Is it bad to contradict your hopes, or is it because you believe in it? Maybe because you want it to be true? Why not follow actuality instead of simple hope?

Interesting article from Scientific American.
Strange radio transmissions appear to be coming from our nearest star system; now scientists are trying to work out what is sending them
It’s never aliens, until it is. Today, news leaked in the British newspaper The Guardian of a mysterious signal coming from the closest star to our own, Proxima Centauri, a star too dim to see from Earth with the naked eye that is nevertheless a cosmic stone’s throw away at just 4.2 light-years. Found this autumn in archival data gathered last year, the signal appears to emanate from the direction of our neighboring star and cannot yet be dismissed as Earth-based interference, raising the very faint prospect that it is a transmission from some form of advanced extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI)—a so-called “technosignature.” Now, speaking to Scientific American, the scientists behind the discovery caution there is still much work to be done, but admit the interest is justified. “It has some particular properties that caused it to pass many of our checks, and we cannot yet explain it,” says Andrew Siemion from the University of California, Berkeley.
Most curiously, it occupies a very narrow band of the radio spectrum: 982 megahertz, specifically, which is a region typically bereft of transmissions from human-made satellites and spacecraft. “We don’t know of any natural way to compress electromagnetic energy into a single bin in frequency” such as this one, Siemion says. Perhaps, he says, some as-yet-unknown exotic quirk of plasma physics could be a natural explanation for the tantalizingly concentrated radio waves. But “for the moment, the only source that we know of is technological.”
I think the area of technosignatures is very promising. We're finding more of them and they're very intriguing.
The bad thing is, you can always find a skeptic that says there's a "natural" explanation and no matter how crazy it sounds it will be enough for some to say that's a good enough explanation. This because if you start out with the belief extraterrestrials don't exist then you will accept any convoluted explanation as better than an extraterrestrial explanation.
A person can say,"Maybe 2 neutron stars collided at a 30 degree angle and the blast ripple through space and 10 million light years away this ripple excited the quantum field and that could have created the signature that was detected."
I'm being facetious but it's close to the truth.

There is a natural explanation probably, maybe a couple of neutron stars collided at 30 odd degrees, a pulsar, black hole.
Always get these crazy alien extra terrestrial believers saying any noise is proof of aliens, confirmation bias rot
Well you know the kind
