Nonsense.The old 300 meter Arecibo telescope could communicate with a similar telescope anywhere in the galaxy, and the Chinese just made a 500 meter one. We've only been at this for a century and it's been 13.8 billion years since the Big Bang but we have not heard a peep from anyone. Zero zilch nada goose egg. There must be a filter that prevents a Star Trek galaxy from occurring, the only question is if that filter is in our past of in our future. > *> SETI is a waste of time and energy.* > You like to talk about flying saucer people in Roswell New Mexico and you're worried about wasting time?
