This is really strange, since astronomers have long proved that even in the space we foresee, that is, in our Milky Way galaxy, there are at least 4,000 exoplanets suitable for approximately the same organic life as on Earth. And all of them in the universe can be an infinite number.
At a recent, already traditional, meeting in Paris, organized by METI International, researchers in such fields of science as astrophysics, sociology, biology, history, psychology and ufology, discussed major issues related to this topic or even the problem.
Here is what the member of the METI directors and co-chairman of this seminar, Florence Raulin Serso, says about this:
We can suggest several reasons why contacts with supposed extraterrestrial civilizations are not being established at all:
– we are simply not touched, because this may adversely affect the development of Earth society;
– we are being watched as in a zoo or nursery, studying and quietly throwing up all sorts of problems, such as disasters or diseases;
– our signals into space for the purpose of searching for aliens for these reasons are simply meaningless, they are ignored by those who follow us;
– extraterrestrial intelligence, perhaps, is very different from ours, and therefore contact with it is either premature or impossible at all;
– it is quite acceptable that human society on Earth is just an experiment from highly developed galactic races or some form of universal migration, and therefore we simply do not know all the tasks that we face, and therefore our attempts to establish contact with aliens look naive.
Fully agreeing with his colleague, METI President Douglas Vakoch is confident that we should not be passive in any case and we must clearly manifest ourselves in the search for such contacts.
“It seems likely that extraterrestrials are imposing a ‘galactic quarantine’ because they realize it would be culturally disruptive for us to learn about them,” said workshop co-chair Jean-Pierre Rospars.
“There’s no reason to think that humans have reached the highest cognitive level possible. Higher levels might evolve on Earth in the future and already be reached elsewhere.”
