“The truth may be puzzling…”

A world of thanks to RPJ and GT.

Quote of the Day:

“…It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true.”

C. Sagan

Those Nasa and Penn researchers should have at least credited The One for inspiring them ;)

Needless to say, all these scenarios are completely constructed from human experience -- any study into the hypothetical nature of ETI will have a heavy anthropocentric bias. What if we encounter an alien civilization whose intentions are completely baffling? What if we can't decide whether their intentions are positive, negative or neutral?

Well, I suppose that's why we need studies like this.

NO. What you and your scientific buddies need to do, is pay more attention to the UFO phenomenon, bud.

Completely baffling intentions? That's what guys like Vallee have been saying all these decades, and yet you and people like Hawking still dare to joke on why these aliens people keep reporting do not conform with your anthropocentric bias.

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

...I forgot how I got here but everyone seems to be heading off in that direction. I hope someone brought food. I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey................

"How corporations -ruin- the world’s economy"

Fixed that for ya. Their "efficiencies" concentrate profits and eliminate work for millions in the process.

Humanity can't afford them any more.

Unemployment is the cure :3 Too bad so much chaos happens when paradigms shift from a 'work yourself out of a job' economy to a true wealth-based (work that actually helps the world) economy.
