SETI Unlikely To Eavesdrop On Intelligent Alien Communications
By Dale Roethlisberger

The ‘Search for Extra-Terrestial Intelligence’ (SETI) keeps trying to eavesdrop on ‘our’ (i.e. from the  alien viewpoint) conversations using ideas and approaches that really don’t have much chance of succeeding. The information and ideas we ‘transmit’ across the vast distances of inter-stellar space are extremely valuable both for their content, as well as, the expense of the transmission itself. Given that these ideas and information are also potentially dangerous to cultures and social systems without the neccessary trail of intellectual assimilation to properly context the information or idea in the ‘local’ society, any alien culture would go to great lengths to ‘hide’ or encrypt both the transmission method and the information transmitted.

Even with the current technology available on ‘Earth’, it is possible to use multiple transmission frequencies across the whole electromagnetic spectrum. Anyone sampling the whole electromagnetic spectrum for artificially produced signals would think they are receiving ‘noise’ without knowing exactly the transmisson methodology and the ‘coding’ schema involved. Even advanced alien civilizations already in contact with other aliens would need to have such systems in place to both protect their own cultures from disruptive ideas and technolgies, as well as, insure the safety and viability of information to be used in inter-galactic trade. Of course, this doesn’t take into account the possibility that there may be transmission methods that go technologically beyond systems like radio, television, light and lasers, or anything else currently being utilized on ‘Earth’.

Alien Species Do Communicate With Earth
By Dale Roethlisberger

Some people claim to have channeled extraterrestrial intelligent lifeforms or even met them in a ‘close encounter of the third kind’. Who are we to totally dismiss these reports even though there is no ‘scientific’ data to support this type of communication. Inductive logic and reasoning alone has produced some speculative fiction (i.e. fantasy or science fiction) that has turned out to be most prophetic. Read your Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, or Arthur C. Clarke and understand how much of the foreseeable future can be ‘channeled’ by an individual’s imagination. If you don’t believe today’s cell phones are straight out of ‘Star Trek’, you are sadly mistaken.

Imagination is a powerful tool. Imagination allows humans to ‘see’ desireable (or even undesireable) consequences of emerging realities. We here at AGP News are looking for people and stories that typify the ‘alien’ viewpoint. Our intent is to accelerate the scientific and technology advancement of humankind through responsible presentation of speculative thought. Instead of ‘thinking outside the box’, we hope to capture emerging realities by ‘thinking outside the human sphere’. If you believe ET’s exist, then it must be possible to ‘channel’ what their viewpoint is.
