      Literally the closet star to us has aliens with advanced tech. We can safely say panspermia is real and the Drake equation has been blown open.

      The big question: should we nuke them? They have at least a 100 year head start on us because of our radio wave emissions and have likely already prepared an invasion fleet. On the off chance they have peaceful intent we can still get the jump on them by attacking first; if they are peaceful we win, if they have already launched their attack then we are doomed anyway and lose nothing.

        You don’t just nuke an unknown civilization, anon.
        If they’re slightly more advanced, we’re finished.
        What we should do:
        1. Invest more in space exploration and space military
        2. Send a probe and contact them
        3. Examine
        4. Send nukes if they’re weak
        If they’re on the same level, we can try trading and exchanging information.
        War isn’t worth it if there’s a potentially bigger civilization out there waiting to kill us both.

          you do realize your suggestion we nuke them if they’re weaker than us, means if they’re anything like us they’ve made the same strategic calculation, and will meganuke us first? Buying into the dark forest argument is strategically sensical, but also self manifesting, and depressing as gently caress.

          I know you think this makes sense, but that is just because of your inferior intellect. The discovery of a planet inhabited by a similarly retarded species offers plenty of opportunity to control the ignorant on this planet. Think of it like a gold rush. I know you don’t understand but you are going to have to just trust me on this one dumdum.
          Suppose we were advanced enough to send nukes across the galaxy, what do you target on that alien planet?

        Could be bait, to see how we respond. They might not even be from Proxima Centauri system and are just sending signals from there to trick us. In which case if we try they’ll see malevolent intent and will wipe us.

        Also imagine if those beings looked indistinguishable from humans. Humans living on a different planet living in similar societies. Pretty trippy.

          If there actually was intelligent life literally at the closest star, at the same time that we exist, this would be the only option I would buy. It’s some ancient civilization that gently caressed off from Earth and are now living over there

              It would indicate the likelihood that something seeded both planets, or one of them seeded the other. It would say nothing about "across the galaxy," which is a pretty significant difference in scale.

                Copernican principle says panspermia is the only answer. If it’s like that here, and it’s like that at the next closest star, it’s like that everywhere.

                  Just the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs could’ve flung countless extremophile species into to space, hurling them in all directions to destinations unknown to kickstart life anew on a close by, similarly situated rock. We know precious little about the cornucopium of microscopic life that surrounds us in the trillions, but even without really meaning too just cursory glance revealed creatures capable both braving the vacuum of space and can survive the long journey to another star by entering an indefinite state of suspended animation. And that’s just the creature we know about. With how easy this one was to find, I’ve no doubt there are countless more just as sturdy, if not more so. Tens of trillions of creatures, ready on standby to hitch the next ride out of here and bring forth the miracle of life ever deeper into Empyrea Incognita.

          Get familiar with evolution and game theory. It is most profitable for aliens to get rid of us, especially if we’re weaker.
          If they’re logically thinking we’re gently caressed, but if they’re some delusional civilization having peaceful religion/moral system, then it’s our chance.
          Space is not some disney movie shit, but a cold dead place.

              It’s not about joy but about pure calculation – a life form which destroys all competition wins and achieves reproductive success.

                      Turns out with the discovery that our closest star also has an advanced civ, ergo every star has an intelligent civilisation already there. So no, there are no fields of green pastures in the Milky Way, only permanent war, struggle, and death, in an eternal fight over finite resources. As the Italians say: galassia caine.

                    we have to solve many problems before we think about colonizing the galaxy, first the solar system, how people will grow and adapt in space because you know radiation, gravity, g force, muscles and bones that will be affected, organs, even eyes, we have to build a ship with artificial gravity by centrifuge, also the fuel problem, we have to somehow solve the fusion and then create a ship with a fusion engine.
                    A lot of problems to fix before we really start the space exploration with humans.

                    Humanity will never leave the Solar system.

                      Humans weren’t ‘built’ to live forever, complex evolution was just a fluke. Large chemical structures break down into smaller more inert structures. The universe cools, and energy disperses into more dynamic and separated configurations. Eventually, the universe will be a homogenous soup of radio waves. And that’s trillions of eons after humanities inevitable destruction. Best not to think about it because all things have an end. Accelerating progress towards the end just ensures a quicker and easier extinction, so lets do it! Merry sciencemas

            This basically.
            Thinking otherwise is just Homo sapiens monkey cope.
            Some common misconceptions:
            1. Misconception: A-aliens will keep u-us to have conversations with us!
            Answer: No, not really. You don’t talk to monkeys. After they gather all information they need, we’re useless.
            2. Misconception: A-aliens are not v-violent!
            Answer: Evolution. Organisms on Earth almost always kill when they have a chance, altruism is mostly a family thing – related organisms protect each other because they have common parts of their genome.
            Altruism outside of one species is only when the two organisms don’t have the same niche and when there’s a common enemy.
            Sometimes altruism is an outcome of a error/mutation, but unwanted errors don’t last long in the evolutionary scale.
            3. Misconception: A-aliens are c-cool and fluffy! They’re certainly emphatic and won’t just kill us, right g-guys???
            Answer: No, not really. They’re most probably AI/machines, because that’s what has the most promising chances of survival.

            The only hope I see for us if the signal is real is:
            – Aliens are less developed than us
            – Aliens are on a similar civilization development stage
            – Aliens don’t see us as a threat because civilizations are extremely rare in the universe – there’s enough space to share it
            – There’s a common enemy and the war isn’t profitable – we work together to prepare for a bigger war

                Those animals aren’t a threat to our civilization. Any species that has the capability to get to space, has the capability to threaten your planet at some point. I actually imagine that if somebody actually was sending signals out, it would just be something like "yeah, we see you. Stay away". Just avoiding contact with anybody, until you’re guaranteed to have the upper hand if things go sideways

          Fucking chimps. Literally why Aliens do not visit us. Trade, is the basis of all economics. The research, tech, materials that could be gathered. You discover another species and your first reaction is to club it like a cave man. gently caressing retard.

          Starship Troopers (the novel) of all things sums this idea up nicely, the main character is reflecting on how the human colonists of a planet with little cosmic radiation (thick magnetosphere) would turn out in 100 years. He remarks that the planets native life cannot compete with earth based life (insects and plants). He then applies this to the war against the bugs.
          >if humanity was like this planets life, passive and unable to adapt, where would it be?
          >the bugs would have wiped us out and there would be no one to care or remember us
          The universe is a prisoners dilemma, and those who play nice likely just get exterminated by everyone else, only those with unrivaled power have the luxury of mercy – such as what eventually happened in the new world, but only for the very last survivors.

If they have passed the great filter and achieved interstellar travel, they arent going to be murderous insane apes like we are. They will have every planet at their disposal. Our resources dont mean shit to a spacefaring civilization, and they would not see us retards as a threat. We cant touch them. They would be better off using us and controlling us than killing us.

            They could take our resources without killing anyone, we can’t stop them anyway, killing us is just extra work… how do you not understand this?

          Get familiar with Game Theory, read Richard Dawkins’ books, read about evolution and then judge who’s an ape here.

          Yeah, instead they’re likely an AI that was created by the organic life previously living on the planet.
          Cold, dead AI making only logical decisions to secure its survival.
          >If they have passed the great filter and achieved interstellar travel, they arent going to be murderous insane apes like we are.
          Are they? Look, if something survives for a long time, it was proven by evolution. Violence is profitable, killing competitors is profitable.
          This is like prisoner’s dilemma. Betraying is always the most profitable option if you can finish your enemy in just one move.
          By cooperating with aliens you get some profits, but risk being nuked by them in the future.
          Cooperation only lasts as long as both sides are unsure how long is the game/war going to take.
          If the aliens would know they can finish us quickly, they will do this. Seriously, read "The Selfish Gene".
          >They will have every planet at their disposal. Our resources dont mean shit to a spacefaring civilization, and they would not see us retards as a threat.
          I assumed a civilization on our level, considering they still use radio to communicate. But still if we’re not a threat for them, we’re not needed by them either.
          They can kill us and secure their future preventing us from further development.

            Counterpoint: Nuking a planet is pointless if they have spacefaring capabilities, because you’ve effectively kicked a beehive who has every reason to retaliate, and it’s impossible to shoot down every bee that is going to do so.
            You would basically be starting an unwinnable war (by virtue you can NEVER be certain you’ve completely neutralized the threat) for no reason.

            The idea that the natives all died out due to conquest is a wholesale white lie. 99% of natives on both continents died out due to disease, most having never even come 100 miles of a single European. The subsequent 18th and 19th century mop up jobs were essentially the entire arsenal of an early modern nation-state versus the scattered remnants of what were essentially post-apoloyptic societies squatting on depopulated lands they had only occupied mere decades before getting obliterated by pale face’s thunderstick. So considering any alien life would come from a completely divergent evolutionary track than life on earth I highly doubt they’d have disease to do the heavy lifting for them. In the twighlight period right before Eurasian diseases wiped them out polities like the Aztec and Incan Empires were able to field armies in the tens of thousands, and before they were crippled by disease gave any European looking for easy loot a run for their money, despite still technically only being stone age societies. What I’m saying is that if it does come down to a fight, it’ll be a slog but we’re quick learners and ruthless. We would definitely put up enough of a fight to not be worth it to any species that has access to the boundless resources of space.

        there is no prior for the likelihood of life in the universe because we are the only sample, and thus suffer from observer bias, thus assigning a probability that it is or isn’t aliens is literally impossible unless you definitively prove it one way or the other. They’re saying that because if it was, it would be the biggest event in the history of mankind, and cause our economic, military, legal, and religious structures to upend and reorient themselves overnight.

      Why are astronomers the kings of disappointment? First Betelgeuse didn’t supernova, then Tabby’s star wasn’t dyson sphered but just dusty, and now they are doing it again with Proxima Centauri. Are there no other ways of obtaining funding than coming up with horseshit stories?

        I think you are missing how this happens.

        1: Astronomer discovers star doing something unexpected.
        2: Science reporter who knows little about science but went to journalism school hears about it, asks "What’s up wth that?"
        3: Scientist says, "Well, we don’t know yet. Could be dust, could by Ayyyys, could be this, that or the other thing. We’ll need to do more research to find out.
        4: SCIENTISTS SAY NEW DISCOVERY COULD BE AYYYYS! headline, sells more papers.
        5: Internet posters scream about Ayyyys being "proven at last!"
        6: Further research, not mentioned by anybody since step 3 has been going on all this time, and since there is a lot more dust, thises, thats nd the other things than Ayyyys out there, guess what is discovered?
        7: "Why scientists make false claims alla time, eh?"

          8: Demagogues, Internet Institute trolls, mountebanks and frauds use failures or flaws in science journalism to assert that it is all equally fake news, to the benefit of themselves and their operations, and to the detriment everyone else, including the retards and schizos who buy their shit.

      We’ll see, I doubt it but evidence may well prove me wrong. SO far, proof is a fairly long way from what we have.

      >We can safely say panspermia is real

      Does not fallow at all. Could also mean that the completely unknown variables in the Fake Equation are a lot closer to 1.0 than most have thought. Or that we hit the jackpot and beat long odds — that does happen from time to time, every few weeks or months somebody else wins the lottery, however unlikely it is that any one particular person will.

      Intrinsic tendency to throw rocks results in a constant state of war on their planets surface. The only thing that can compare to their tendency to pelt other lifeforms with projectiles is their constant need to gently caress. Their gently caressing is in fact not particularily tied to reproduction, but rather works as a social tool, and they can essentially become attracted to anything, real or not. Also they can rewire their brains on the fly to adapt to basically anything.

      Aliens visit the Earth
      > Americans
      Can we bomb them?
      > Chinese
      Can we eat them?
      > Europeans
      Can we gently caress them?

      No wonder aliens avoid us like the plague.

        Realistically though, what is there even to gain from contacting other civilizations? If you’re at the point where you can travel from star to star, you’ve already got things pretty good. At that point I picture everyone would just try to stay clear from other societies. Like unless you’re 100 percent sure you could kill them first when things get out of hand, it just seems like a huge risk to come in contact with another interstellar society. You already have all the means to prolong your existence for as long as you need by mining resources from wherever the speed of light permits you to get in a reasonable time frame. You don’t need their help, and if they’re even a thousand years ahead of you, they have a massive upper hand as far as destroying your entire civilization goes. And a thousand years is nothing in the grand scale of things. Scientific curiosity only goes so far. Three things we can assume about any intelligent species:

        1) Any specie that is in control of their entire planet needs to be totally ruthless when it’s necessary
        2) Their existence will be more important to them than ours
        3) They will assume the same thing about us

        Look at what bears do, if they wander into somebody else’s territory, there’s just a huge standoff where they’re telling each other to get away. Only when nobody is backing off, do they start fighting because they both know they can do massive damage both to themselves and the other party

        So that’s my nihilistic take. If anyone’s beaming radio signals toward us, they’re just letting us know that

        a) they know we’re out here, and
        b) we should stay away from them

          yup 100% agreed. Thats why it should be a capital offense to leak signals to ayys. We should hide and recon but never contact. If we find a weaker civ, nuke them into oblivion.

      We detected them coming. They want our planet. We are a rare, very rare utopia planet. Life here is plentiful and bountiful. They are close enough to see what we see. There’s nothing else like us around here. We are gently caressed.
