Royal astronomer: 'Aliens may be staring us in the face'

He made the remarks shortly after hosting the national science academy’s first conference on the possibility of alien life.

“They could be staring us in the face and we just don’t recognise them. The problem is that we’re looking for something very much like us, assuming that they at least have something like the same mathematics and technology,” he said.

“I suspect there could be life and intelligence out there in forms we can’t conceive. Just as a chimpanzee can’t understand quantum theory, it could be there as aspects of reality that are beyond the capacity of our brains.”

Lord Rees used the conference in January, entitled “The Detection of Extraterrestrial Life and the Consequences for Science and Society”, to ask whether the discovery of aliens would cause terror or delight on earth.

He told Prospect magazine that improved telescopes made the chance of finding extra-terrestrial life “better than ever”.

But Dr Frank Drake, the world’s leading “ET hunter”, told the conference that satellite TV and the “digital revolution” was making humanity invisible to aliens by cutting the transmission of TV and radio signals into space.

At present, the Earth is surrounded by a 50 light year-wide “shell” of radiation from analogue TV, radio and radar transmissions. But although the signals have spread far enough to reach many nearby star systems, they are rapidly vanishing in the wake of digital technology, according to Dr Drake.

The scientist, who founded the Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence organisation in the United States, said digital TV signals would look like noise to a race of observing aliens.

  1. Not only that and also what goes on in our individual thoughts if needed or lots depends on it .but usually privacy not to be fringed as a cosmic law, today’s as we are living in a semi chaotic world with peace virtually hanging on a thread and what’s more the capability to destroy man beast and atmosphere all in one go, we must be critically scrutinised by our benefactors the aliens Angeles call them as you please

  2. yes carbon give of energy,the food you eat powers your body ,how do you think the attom bomb came ,the food you eat the body splits the attoms to give energy,this did not come from the aliens technowledgy.

  3. Fucking hell the irony of the comment….well yeah ok This clown only works for the reptillian royal family….princess diana called them Reptiles and was quoted saying they really are not human. She’s dead now….18 years ago…that happened and this dick is saying they are right in front if our eyes….his quote and her quote far to close together in terms of the royal connection.

  4. I don`t know if alien is the right term. I would call somethng alien if it was outside the main matrix pattern. The only thing outside the main pattern at this point is a transgender and its because of the male female thing, understandable. All alien images that I have checked are all inside the main pattern.

  5. My feeling is that we are surrounded by other-dimensional beings and aliens who don’t require material methods of travel as it is their consciousness which travels, rather than their body. ( In addition to the more “traditional” aliens and crafts, lol.)
