Our Own Worse Enemy
This is actually going to be a bit more light hearted then my other blogs but I do still believe that this topic is philosophical in nature, no matter how skewed people may think this hypothetical may actually be. I’m a fan of many scifi shows and I’m currently watching one of my more favored ones Stargate SG 1. So I believe 100% that somewhere in the universe (which is so big that we can’t even comprehend the size of the universe) aliens are out there. No matter what anyone says about statistics or whatever other arguments there are against the idea of aliens existing, I’m still sure that in a universe so big it’s not only pointless but it’s also statistically impossible that there is no more intelligent life out there.
As I sit here watching Stargate it occurs to me again (this is something I think about often) that we’ve really done a good job of telling aliens how not to invade us. It’s true that our signals don’t go very far but for all we know something could be sitting out there watching our TV shows and movies working out how best to attack Earth. I realise this sounds a bit far fetched and I’m not saying it’s true however I do find the concept fun to think about, the same way we think it’s fun to make a movie about similar concepts. So anyway it occurs to me that the other thing that could happen is again ship sitting up there watching and they could decide that human beings are far too dangerous to let out of planet Earth…after all in most of our shows we display the fact that human beings are cruel, hateful and destructive but worse still we’re very bossy. In most exploration type scifi shows we get out into the universe and we start policing the place the same way we do in our world, they might decide that it’s a much better idea to ensure we can’t leave our own solar system.
So anyway just a light hearted topic that’s fun to think about, I have no doubt that aliens exist as I’ve said before it’s pretty impossible for them not to so I do enjoy thinking about the various ways that we could all interact together. It would be quite funny to think that there’s a massive space ship sitting up there watching our movies, TV shows and the like and learning how humans would react to invasions of different types.
