If Aliens Are Out There, They Aren’t Advanced

If Aliens Are Out There, They Aren't Advanced

No Dyson Spheres out there. Nothing to see. No sir.

Iain Banks fans, we’ve got bad news for you: the Culture is probably not out there. Recently, a team of scientists used information from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) to look for any energy signatures from galaxy-spanning advanced civilizations. They found nothing.

Now, this doesn’t rule out the existence of complex life or intelligent life. But what it means is that the type of advanced civilizations that have conquered entire galaxies or vast regions of space – the backbone of sci-fi – aren’t there yet. At least as far as we can see.

 

Controlling the galaxies

The scientists’ idea was to look for heat radiated from advanced technology, which would stand out against the ambient radiation. The idea was first proposed by Freeman Dyson in the 1960s. Essentially, he said, the civilizations might essentially cannibalize their home galaxies, using stars and black holes as energy sources.

Jason Wright, an assistant professor of astronomy at Penn State, told Astrobiology.com:

That’s interesting because these galaxies are billions of years old, which should have been plenty of time for them to have been filled with alien civilizations, if they exist. Either they don’t exist, or they don’t yet use enough energy for us to recognize them.

But there was no such thing to be found, meaning either that there are no advanced mega-civilizations in the area or that they can cover their tracks really, really well.

Still, the scientists found about 50 galaxies that had something interesting going on in the mid-infrared spectrum. Maybe the signatures come from unknown or unforeseen astronomical phenomenon, or maybe they’re signs of a great galactic civilization. For now, the team is leaning toward the former.

Where is everybody?

You can’t dive into the issue of advanced alien life without addressing the Fermi Paradox, which asks, essentially: If there are advanced civilizations, why haven’t we heard from them or spotted them?

Through the lens of the paradox, one could interpret this study in a few ways. One, perhaps we’re looking too far back in time through WISE, and alien civilizations have advanced since then. Two, the civilizations out there are about on par with humanity, and no more advanced. Three, there really is a “Great Filter” and civilizations destroy themselves before they become interstellar. Or maybe there’s just nothing out there.

We hope the advanced aliens are hiding themselves, because an empty universe would be no fun.

They arent advanced .. Only an Idiot would say somthing like that ..

Guest

I bet the Men in Black know all the species of alien living on this planet.

Guest

There are very few that don’t already know the truth

Guest

More like the heads of the military industrial complex, I say.

Guest

We know nothing still.

Guest

We still haven’t colonized our whole galaxy yet so we dont know

Sry for bad english

Given the fact so many people seeking the truth DIED, as in murdered, to get the truth on ET life public, this article is bunk, the bad guys would not go to so much trouble is 99.999999999% of life out there in the universe are either primitive cavemen or little creepy crawly slimes swimming about in ponds of goo.

Guest

Considering that there are star systems far older than ours, and if a species was around for millions, if not BILLIONS of years before us, they’d be well beyond our technology….lightyears beyond. Once again, in our human arrogance, this fellow used human ego to make this claim, we humans don’t know SHIT. This article, to me, is just more disinformation tactics to make us think ‘we’re the center of the universe, nothing to see here, go back to paying taxes and shopping, people!”

Guest

What we call aliens that people have seen could be a reflection of your future generations.

Guest
Its our weakness that we either becomes extremely rational and denies every possibility or becomes irrational and believes blindly.Possibilities or probability of anything is always there. As we on this planet have emerged to this much complex and intelligent life,we cannot ignore the fact that there are probabilities like 1.there are millions of such planets(out of the infinite planets) sustaining complex life . 2.Many of those life will be much more primitive and advanced in every respect and subject known on earth. 3.Many such advanced Aliens will have developed technologies we just imagine and we have not imagined. 4.Many of… Read more »

shit they been coming to earth for meetings and we been in contact with them since the 50 EBEN,S ,,,,,,,,,,,,,GOOGLE ,serpo.org zeta reticula exchange program release 32 , and theres 34 more pdf,s to read.

What we see may be us..

Thats a xenophobic idea

Guest

Well said 😀

Guest

If that’s true then how do they explain the ones we’ve already seen??

Guest

78 species !! Living right next door. Lmbo

Guest

I don’t know about 78 but at least 7 or 8. True story.

Guest

I knew it!! Tell them to keep the noise down. They love to party!!

Guest

Just like us

Guest
Thats one thing I do trust my brother,if you’ve been shown the things I have and all its truth,you my friend would know and trust yours,my biggest problem is why me? Why would they show up after I prayed,show exactly what I asked for and shot off back to the stars I’m glad my friend witnessed that encounter I he was a mile from me,that’s one dreams come true many,one dream was a green eyes girl who first dream was her face 2-3-4dreams crying lots of tears I meet her 5 weeks later no courage to tell her she was… Read more »

Non taken,you’ll have to give me insight to this,I also believe there isn’t 57 species of aliens,so the article is saying the alien life forms can be anything from a biological entity just starting out to advanced civilization destroying there world.The thought is endless for the universe is.oh well just babbling I’m not the smartest but I am blessed.

Guest

I’d be disappointed if they were!! NO OFFENCE!!

Guest

I know they can’t drive always crashing into shit ,probably high, kidnap people and don’t ask for ransom,can’t even talk have to use an iPad,yep bunch of dummies,they drink the real moonshine

Guest

Oh please…

Guest

Well, they’re going to be at different levels of development. Some may be still scratching through the dirt, others may have outgrown (maybe having destroyed) their planets. I’m not from the belief camp that there are 57 species of alien who are buzzing around our planet, etc.

Carl Thomas What you do, is that you first you use a meditation to clear one’s mind….you know, unwind and relax, and most importantly, to remove any fears or anger. The ET’s are very powerful mentally, and can detect fear…”fear STINKS” according to what some witnesses were told from some of the ET’s, it stinks like hell. Anyhow, you then remote view, if you will, and once you spot a starship in your mind’s eye, you then invite them to Earth….you first focus on our galaxy (some of them are from other galaxies and can get to ours FAST), then… Read more »

Never heard of it. Is it a type of meditation? Found this http://www.beyondweird.com/ufos/CSETI_Investigation_Protocols.html

Guest

Sure, I’m sure you’re right but I just that the very thing that surrounds us (SPACE) is the very thing that keeps us safe. The universe is one big playground and I doubt there are alien bars, like in Star Wars, where different breeds can get together and watch a pole dance.

Guest

Considering how big the universe is, and with so many planets being found, and according to witnesses who encountered ET’s I say the universe is teaming with life and many of them so advanced, that they will make our so-called state of the art technology look like prehistoric JUNK.

Guest

I thought the same Leslie lol

Guest

This is beyond 5d and namaste

Guest

Tried to comment appending approval .

Guest

We have been in such low vibration we are a threat and quarantined on this planet until such time as we reach 5d. And ladies and gentlemen… Gaia is graduating along with every sentient being on this planet. We will remember everything. We have finally chosen. There is an awakening of epic proportions going on right now. A beautiful time to be alive on planet Earth. Namaste <3

Guest

Been saying that for years. sure they might be able to see us in a telescope but good luck getting here.

Guest

True aliens would never come here, we’re the real aliens on this planet. We’re not even as advanced as ancient cultures were, what does that tell you.

Guest

Carl. Lol

Guest

Haha

Guest

if they are not advanced, how did they get here 😉

Guest

Can’t get all the reading internet slow , but they have to be advanced ,, look at human kind 100 yaers ago,,, say no more .
