The Most Important Signal : Not the One We’re Sending

Before you get all excited about signalling to space you might want to pause and take a look at the signal you are sending to Earth. Directly. As a species. 24/7/365, harder and in new ways — with each 60 seconds that pass. And ramifying… like mad.

It is something like this: we will slaughter you for sport and luxury, and value little chunks of object-garbage more than oceans, (our own lives, societies, intelligence, and so on)… life on earth, liberty, truth, sentience, or… anything… actually.

Until everything is either dead, war, little dolls and info-tchotchkes… or all machines.

Right now. Total obliteration masquerading as… what? Sentience? Intelligence? Engineering disease?

To whom do you suppose that this incredible signal is invisible? Seriously? Who? A -space-faring species? Really!?


Now let me propose a second vector of analysis. Suppose there -are alien intelligences observing or interested in Earth. Do you think they would listen to the signals we send from and with machines into space or the signals our minds, cultures, lives, and activities directly comprise?

I mean, don’t you think -they can read worlds like you read this message?

Which signal would you prefer?

Which signal is true?

Which one can you trust?

Which one cannot hide anything no matter what the purported intention is stated to be?

The signal they listen to is the True Signal. The ways the atmosphere interacts with forces like light and… others of which we are not even formally aware.

The real signal of -every sentient species is and must primarily be the atmospheric envelope of their world (in our case, Earth), and the way that light and other forces interact with that. This is the fundamental and only necessary signalling medium for every intelligent species in all of space:|:time.

There is, unfortunately, another -kind of species. These destroy living worlds. And, invariably, will be found -signalling about peace and intelligence… with =machines.

Welcome to the method with which you contact alien intelligence: your relationship with living symmetries. And that would be: Nature on Earth. Or the shreds that remain.

Because that is the only kind of intelligence you can contact.

And you do not have any.

I can only surmise that this “relationship with living symmetries,” is an allusion to a whole pristine natural order. If so, this is quite an idealistic view, and a complete impossibility; (Or the shreds that remain.) The “shreds” posits that intelligent contact may be obtained piecemeal, though we don’t have any-Yet. Your nature key is laudable but incomplete. However, the honesty you seek is indeed found in the extremes of nature per se.
You Ask:
Which signal would you prefer?
Which signal is true?
Which one can you trust?
Which one cannot hide anything no matter what the purported intention is stated to be?

Pure altruistic honesty, unmitigated, unalloyed, like nature, both harsh and exquisite.
However, not to sound too woo woo world, in all practicality, I’d suspect that they’d (the aliens) would listen to everything that has any utilitarian application. But then again, that is just me unobjectively imposing my narrow, infinitely limited intellect. A complete conjecture of unreasonable nebulousness and inscrutability.
“Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.”
Albert Einstein

All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force… We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter.
