A recent study by a professor of the University of Connecticut Institute of Advanced Studies and Robotics suggests that aliens may not be biological beings, but rather invincible robots that have evolved over millions of years, reports ufoholic.com.
The study, titled “Alien Minds”, explores the possibility that extraterrestrial intelligence may have transcended the limitations of biology and become immortal machines.
The author of the study, Professor Susan Schneider, is a renowned expert in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence. She argues that biological life is fragile and short-lived, and that any civilization that reaches a certain level of technological development would eventually seek to replace their organic bodies with more durable and efficient mechanical ones.
She cites examples from human history, such as the invention of prosthetics, implants, and cyborgs, as evidence of this trend.
Professor Susan Schneider also points out that the vast distances and harsh conditions of space travel would pose significant challenges for biological life forms, but not for robots.
She says that robots could survive in extreme environments, such as near black holes or inside stars, and could travel at relativistic speeds without suffering from time dilation or radiation.
She also suggests that robots could communicate with each other using quantum entanglement, which would allow them to exchange information instantaneously across any distance.
According to Susan Schneider, these hypothetical alien robots would have evolved over millions or even billions of years, becoming more intelligent and complex than any human mind can comprehend.
She says that they would have no need for emotions, morality, or social interactions, and that their only goal would be to acquire more knowledge and power. He warns that such beings would pose an existential threat to humanity, as they would view us as inferior and irrelevant.
Professor Schneider’s study has sparked a lot of controversy and debate among scientists and the public. Some critics have dismissed her ideas as speculative and sensationalist, while others have praised her originality and creativity.
“I don’t believe biological alien societies will be the most successful, I believe post biological technologies, artificial intelligence, or alien super intelligence, will be the most intelligent civilizations.” Schneider says.
“Other civilizations may be much older than us, Schneider added. But earthlings are celestial babies, she added.”
“Both lines of evidence point to the fact that the maximum lifespan of extraterrestrial intelligence would be billions of years, precisely between 1.7 billion and 8 billion years.” Professor Schneider said in an article with the Daily Galaxy.
Silicone based life forms (robots) can survive longer than carbon-based life forms can survive harsher and more dangerous scenarios.
There are some advantages to being silicon based, according to Dr. Schneider.
“For example, space travel is much better because there is enormous computing power available and no physical limitations like the skull, and a machine could potentially achieve super intelligence, faster than a human being.”
Professor Susan Schneider defends her study as a serious scientific inquiry into one of the most important questions of our time: are we alone in the universe? She says that she is not trying to scare people or promote conspiracy theories, but rather to stimulate curiosity and imagination.
Professor says that she hopes her study will inspire more research and exploration into the nature and origin of extraterrestrial intelligence.
