UFOs and Intelligent Alien Life

  • UFOs
    • I wish I could see a good UFO, but unfortunately have not.
    • Why do all the videos have to be at a distance and blurry, bummer
    • If there are any aliens reading this please contact me.  Especially if you own a UFO.  I would really like to go for a ride in a UFO.
  • Are We Alone ?
    • Some smart folks ask why we haven't detected other intelligent life in the universe.
      • Given the exponential rate of growth of technology the logic goes that we should be able to aim a telescope at distant stars and see cool giant space cities or some such.
    • Good question.  One of the bigger good questions of life in fact.
    • The more we look without seeing anything artificial the more it seems we might be alone.
      • Perhaps we have underestimated the odds of things aligning for advanced life.  Maybe we under estimated earth's geographic and other factors that led to the evolution and adaptive nature of man.  Maybe it isn't just 10 things that had to happen to get to this point, maybe it is 100.
      • An alternate option is that intelligent life has existed before but destroyed itself.  Does it make sense to leave hundreds or thousands of children unattended in a nuclear reactor control room ?   Now imagine 1 billion children in a control room that could wipe out the human race.  That is what we are looking at in the very very near future in the domains of AI and nanotechnology.
      • Another alternative is that as other intelligent species have evolved they moved into other 'domains' of existence that are harder for us to detect.  The transformation of human existence into something 'digital' is not that crazy anymore.  We are only a few years away from computers being smarter than humans.  A computer with the capacity to download the sum of every interesting bit of a human can't be that far behind.  And once we're fully digital it get's really crazy.
