Finding ET, Discovering Aliens, Advanced Alien Life Forms Don't Even Know The Phone is Ringing!

Earth's Technology May be Too Primitive to Detect Advanced ET Life!


Now that the SETI program has been put on indefinite hold you have to wonder why the US Federal Government has stopped funding this program, you also have to wonder why the United States has stopped all manned flights to space. The conventional speculation would be that these are budget cuts but nothing could be further from the truth. The budget for NASA has not been decreased, the efforts of NASA have just been refocused. The funding issue for SETI is so minuscule that it really does not even amount to the proverbial drop in the bucket. NASA will be sending probes and more long range telescopes into space but anything thing to do with man being in space or man monitoring space is all but over! Yes we will get the pictures from Kepler and Hubble but they are so closely guarded by NASA that by the time the public gets to seem them they are so filtered and censored that we will only see what NASA wants us to see. This prevents astronauts from coming out and telling us their true space experiences and prevents those monitoring SETI to give us an honest accounting of their findings.


 

In my estimation this is fairly ominous stuff but in the meantime the SETI program causes much controversy with both the funding of the project and the archaic means by which we are using yesterdays technology to find our space brethren. Here is an interesting article on just that subject!  


Some of the world's leading astronomers -- including Great Britain's astronomer royal, Sir Martin Rees -- believe aliens, rather than using different radio waves or visible light to signal, may be using an entirely different communication medium such as ghostly neutrinos or with gravitational waves (ripples in the fabric of space-time) or using communication mechanisms we cannot begin to fathom.


“The fact that we have not yet found the slightest evidence for life -- much less intelligence -- beyond this Earth," said Arthur C. Clarke, "does not surprise or disappoint me in the least. Our technology must still be laughably primitive, we may be like jungle savages listening for the throbbing of tom-toms while the ether around them carries more words per second than they could utter in a lifetime."
Lord Rees, a leading cosmologist and astrophysicist who is the president of Britain’s Royal Society and astronomer to the Queen of England believes the existence of extraterrestrial life may be beyond human understanding.
“They could be staring us in the face and we just don’t recognize them. The problem is that we’re looking for something very much like us, assuming that they at least have something like the same mathematics and technology."


“I suspect there could be life and intelligence out there in forms we can’t conceive. Just as a chimpanzee can’t understand quantum theory, it could be there as aspects of reality that are beyond the capacity of our brains.”
