Setting aside the efficacy of those who maintain there are are other beings out there, you don't even have their story straight.
You invent a narrative contrary to their position and attempt to discredit it on that basis. You've really developed a bad habit along these lines. Suggestion: Before you go about calling someone else an internet troll, take a look at thyself. Good luck. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> wrote : ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <jr_esq@...> wrote : S3, That's a good question. We may not get any message back at all since the radio waves are relatively slow in comparison to the large distances involved in the scale of the Milky Way and the entire universe. Also, the earth-like planets near us may not have any advanced civilizations like ours. Or, that their living beings are still in the microbial, plant or animal stages. My point is that, if there are any advanced human-like civilizations in the Milk Way, they would be communicating with us telepathically or through lucid dreams. For example, a few years ago, there was a psychic here on FFL who posted that he was able to communicate telepathically with another being from the Pleaides star system. I believe Rick knows the guy who also lives in Fairfield, Iowa. OK, the first problem is: why would telepathic waves travel faster than light? Or rather, how could they travel faster than light? And that's forgetting the obvious question of brains being not all that strong compared to, say, Jodrell bank radio telescope! So the send/receive function is going to be a bit limited. The other big problem is that the Pleaides system is pretty much the last place you will find life in our galaxy, a bunch of very young white-hot supergiant stars. Life of any organic type aint happening there, or anywhere close. That's typical of science, always spoiling people's fun. UFO contactees used to say they'd met beings from Venus or Mars until the harsh reality of the climate on those worlds drove their imaginary aliens away to the outer planets first and then on to more distant star systems. Not sure why the Pleaides got chosen as a home for the Space Brothers. They do look nice though, especially through a telescope as you can still see the blue nebulae that the stars formed out of. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <s3raphita@...> wrote : ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <jr_esq@...> wrote : Yes, probably so, if the means of communication is through light or radio waves. I enjoyed that moment in the movie Contact where the first TV signal that aliens would have received from Earth was Hitler's speech at the 1936 Olympics. The idea has since been dismissed by scientists as it seems that the transmission signal was very low powered so is unlikely to be picked out amongst all the background radiation in space. But what will their first Earth TV signal be? I Love Lucy? Baywatch? American Idol? Perhaps the best hope is that it's some global warming/ecological doom-laden documentary so that the aliens conclude it's not worth wasting time invading our dying planet. As such, the speed of communication is limited by the speed of light. But it is theoretically possible to contact ETs through telepathic means or lucid dreaming. Why? Because consciousness pervades the entire universe. So, communication through consciousness is faster than the speed of light. IMO, the Srimad Bhagavatam has given us clues of this type of communication in the story relating to Urvasi, the heavenly apsara. She supposedly can be found taking a bath in the region near the Pleiades, which is placed in beginning degrees of Taurus. From my experience, everyone--perhaps, more so for males--can see Urvasi through lucid dreaming when the Moon is transiting the 3rd quarter of Krittika nakshatra. She appears as a beautiful female during a dream.
