You'd be an idiot to ignore the possibility of life on other planets. To think we are the only ones is idiotic. But the fact is if there is they could either have already died out or still be in the amoeba stage. Chances of meeting another given distance over galaxies IS idiotic.

the only 'feasible' theory for time travel I've read about is to take a wormhole* and keep one end of it stationary while you move the other around at the speed of light. then just like the 'Twins Paradox' one end of the worm hole is older than the other. then you pass things through the worm hole.

thing is, this means that you can only travel in time as far back as when the worm hole was created, but no earlier.


*'we' can make worm holes very very very very tiny that only last for a very very very very very brief amount of time, so it's not really feasible but the components are there. the Twins Paradox has been proven to be fact with real experiments.

You realise you're sounding exactly like the James Woods character in "Contact"... :D
(great movie btw, adapted from Carl Sagan's novel)

I leave it to Arthur C. Clarke who said:

So the aliens are so intelligent they can fold space and get to our planet. Yet they are so irresponsible and thoughtless that they don't hide themselves when they get here to monitor/study us? They just fly around with "blinking lights" and "bright lights" all around everywhere so any jackass can see them? I don't think so. A species that could get here wouldn't do that imo. And good god, even star trek has the prime directive and cloaking devices for space ships. And I'm sure the aliens (if they exist) minds are far superior to the star trek writers.

And to whom might say. Well, they don't give a crap if we see them they are superior. We are just cows to them. I would say that if thats true, and they are real, they are a dangerous species and not just here to study etc.

how you can begin to apply anthropomorphism to aliens is beyond me.

it's to be expected that we are as different from them as western music is from eastern music.

Ok, I see how it is. Even though on this forum its "chang, wear dental floss for blind fold with slant eyes" "chang you shouldn't drive" and everything else but because of former new racebaiting thread I am now shunned from giving opinion. That just great.

whoa man... you're playing the racism card on me? that's a really shitty thing to write.

you wrote that there's a basic sense of common decency that goes with intelligence in humans, therefore an advanced alien species would inherently have that sense of decency. not a bad point. then it occurred to me that aliens would be inherently different than humans.

I would say that you're preventing me from stating an opinion. I disagree and you decide to play the racism card on me.

you're a dookie head. Chang, you and I are above this kind of thing, it's a misunderstanding.
