The Upside In Transmitting Messages To Extraterrestrials


Officially, humanity has not found any proof of space alien existence despite many years of searching in the cosmos. However, if Earthlings succeed in encountering alien species, will the aliens be hostile, indifferent, or a little nice?

Dough Vakoch of METI International, a group of scientists that has been sending radio signals out into the void in an attempt to communicate with alien life, says that it is challenging to second-guess alien motivations. SETI scientists have often assumed ETs that will make contact have survived long enough and overcome any warlike traits during the process of their evolution.

akoch explains that if space aliens have not learned to behave nicely with others, they will not have survived at least thousands of years necessary to be a stable interstellar civilization.

Stephen Hawking has warned about transmitting messages to aliens. He said that intelligent aliens might come to Earth to strip mine. However, Vakoch does not think Hawking’s theory is realistic as it makes no economic sense the idea of aliens traveling across the galaxy to look for something that can be found in their backyard. Second, according to Vakoch, a civilization that can traverse the distances between the stars may already know about our presence, so scientists do not expose our lives to any additional threats in transmitting intentional signals. Vakoch further explains that there is, in fact, an upside to sending such messages and that is to intrigue the aliens about humanity and make a reply.

  1. Yeah, they already know we are here! Their reply. Avoid this planet at all costs, observe only, then run like hell!

    • Amy,certain Highly Evolved Beings,are assisting.The goverment right now.But,the goverment.Is Holding certain Technology back. (See my comment) … There Is The PRIME DIRRECTIVE) Yes it Really does exist.That they can Not interfere,in certain cases.Know We Are being watched over. In a Positive way. Please feel free to reply to me. I have an Open Mind. We need to keep Positive. What you think about,You bring about. 😉

  2. It is (My) opinion,that Highly Evolved Beings. (HEBS) are watching Mother Earth. With Great concern,and are making sure. That nothing happens,that would destroy the planet. Mother Earth,in any way getting destroyed. Would send reprecussions,throughout the Universes. We are continually being watched over. There are certain groups, that have been working. With the goverment’s. Since World War Two. They have given us, many advancements, in technology. The goverments,have been with holding this information. Because,it would create Chaos,amoung the wealthy. Think about this. “””FREE ENERGY””” WOW!!! To be able to run your house,without having to pay.Electric bills. UNLIMITED ENERGY… Drive in cars,that don’t have to have gas. We have Hybrd cars now. Just think of driving,anywhere.Just pluggining in your vechicle. Every night,with a full charge. Going 300-500 miles. Without fuel. The TESLA Is the Greatest of the Electric cars. RIGHT NOW.And,It’s getting better.Do your research folks. The answers are Outhere.

  3. True we are in contact but not all are friendly. The technology is being held back like our history of earth and our cousins in space. The confedration is what keeps us safe from Dracos but there are jerks amongst the friendlies. fREE energy is nice as it were 15,000 years ago when we had point energy supplied by Titicaca.
