The best thing about outer space is that there's no wind.

If there is a "Type 1" civilisation there has to be a type 2...if there is a type 2 it follows there must be a type 3. Type 4 AND type five AND type 6....although what that might be my mind cannot even begin to imagine. Every time something is discovered....later we discover something even better or bigger....Will we one day discover or BECOME the equivalent of God's?

#7 Agreed. To re-quote Joseph Campbell, "God is a metaphor for that which transcends all levels of intellectual thought. It's as simple as that."

Too much hair. With intelligent you mean somewhat similar to humans i assume. Because if the alien life form is more intelligent than humans they would have no interest, except maybe for slaving, petting etc.

Just take a look at how humans interact with lesser intelligent beings, now imagine the alien being the human and you being the worm.

#10 What a cynical perspective. What about the vast anthropological research the aliens can conduct here? What about the arts, philosophy, history even science?
The total pragmatic thinking you attach to humans and higher beings is IMO false and somewhat sad.

Do you walk to a monkey cage and say "Hello monkeys, I give you peace and technology, it works like this and then you will have peace, and everything you need, and become like us" -Monkey looks at I-pad, and trows it-

Better is to give them sticks and bottles filled with snacks, and let them figure out what to do with it, and when the time is ready one of the monkeys, gives back the stick and turns the bottle upside down, to get the snack. Gives back the bottle ,and polite asks for a new snack on a tray instead of in a bottle

Until then, do not give them I-pads

How does an other lifeform look at us? do they see us as a trial in a jungle, loaded with spears, ready to kill because someone thinks different?

Do they see us as a peacefull society who welcomes everyone with open arms. (without scrambeling fighterjets and shoot down everything what does not respond or looks like a spyplane)

Good ideas, bad presentation. He'd be a bastard of a teacher. And as for his examples - well, they were given to him by someone who doesn't read a lot of science fiction. Either that or he's aiming for the lowest common denominator, which is just as bad.

Btw, there is a Civ V as well! Civ V doesn't give a flying f*ck about space-time continuum.
Also Civ VI - who use the Civ V as a napkin and so on...

EU - fail start of type 1 economy.
Internet is a puddle!

...anyway, nice Gucci and Chanel add!

p.s. and some ppl get paid for that kind of jobs.

I can also imagine and today it is actually true, that there is no life in the billions of universes out there. You can run probabilities using high numbers and of course you are going to come up with an answer that there are other intelligent life forms out there, but in the end your math teacher would tell you that the answer is also a probability. We are the "Privileged Planet" and wake me up when they find another one. These theoretical physicists are real dreamers and this guy has become a millionaire just by basically making up stuff and the Star Wars generation sucks it up like a bear on honey.Look within and find a universe.
