question Best way to contact a super-advanced alien?
« Thread started on: Jul 1st, 2016, 8:24pm »

Hello.

The question is: If one’s goal was to contact a technologically superior extraterrestrial being/civilization, what would be the best way for him to achieve this goal?

Should he try to become an ufologist, a physicist, an astronomer, a planetary scientist, a politician, a religious leader, a military commander, something else?
Which field should he specialize in precisely?

Note that I said “technologically superior”, so discovering microbial extraterrestrial life doesn’t cut it at all.
Also note that I said “contact”, so discovering a super-advanced extraterrestrial being/civilization more than 50 light years away probably doesn’t cut it either because you’ll never be able to “contact” them and get an answer within your lifetime; except if the technologically superior extraterrestrial being/civilization knows how to time travel, but since we don’t know if that’s even physically possible it might be a little risky to bet on the feasibility of time travel.

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Hi Canopus! Welcome to Casebook!

I'm not sure there is any one right answer, but my thinking is, be a physicist. You can call in other disciplines like astronomers and planetary scientists as needed. The key here is, I think, a "technically superior race". I feel that a physicist would have the best shot at coming up with a communication method that would work.

JMHO!

And them Tucker Boys are cookin' down in Caroline
People down in Florida can't be still
When ol' Lynyrd Skynrd's pickin' down in Jacksonville
Now people down in Georgia come from near and far
To hear Richard Betts pickin' on that red guitar"

"So gather 'round, now gather 'round chillin' get down
Well just get down chillin', get loud
Well you can be loud and be proud
An' you can be proud, here now, be proud you're a rebel
'Cause the South's gonna do it again and again"

"Elvin Bishop sittin' on a bale of hay
He ain't good lookin', but he sure can play
And there's ZZ Top and you can't forget

And all the good people down in Tennessee
Are diggin' barefoot Jerry and C.D.B"

Well you get loud and be proud
Well you can be proud an' be proud you're a rebel

ZETAR, you are correct. So, I do agree with Swamp's post, but to elaborate a little on my thinking cheesy I thunks the best way allround is not to try and contact folks well beyond our own developmental stage, but instead to take the time to become a 'super advanced civilization' ourselves. Then Canopus' question happily becomes another species' problem in dealing with us. In say 2000 years.

In the realm of infinite possibilities there could very well be superior intelligent microorganisms. We might call them microorganisms, they might call us a viral plague on the Earth
We tend to be anthropomorphic in our thought process but in this arena, who knows?

Canopus, as you can see, you have stumbled into the realm of weirdos. However, we ARE all extremely smart, and we are relatively harmless...... grin

In my opinion this kinda thing would be best left alone.

The fantasy view is normally:

first contact, wonderful/ give us cures for all illnesses/ give us new tech/ energy sauces etc but I'd say it's more likely they'll be here to take & not give!

Does anyone really want to take the chance!? This is why I've always been against the SETI project-- bad idea!

Peace.
