What do you guys think of this? There's a lot of controversy around it...

I wonder if the people at Seti heard about that already...



He said humans wouldn’t be able to establish contact with the extraterrestrials through radio waves but through the power of thought.


“They are not hostile towards us, rather, they want to help us but we have not grown enough in order to establish direct contact with them,” he added.


Forgot all about Dr. Latchezar Filipov..

From RationalWiki:

In November 2009, several UK newsrags ran headlines reporting that "Bulgarian scientists" claimed that they had contacted extraterrestrials on Earth.[11][12][13] The reason was the activities of Lachezar Filipov,[14] the deputy head of the Space Research Institute of the Bulgarian Academy of Science. He and a group of like-minded individuals claim they have managed to establish contact with aliens, using crop circles as a communication channel. Fortunately, his activities haven't been funded by or done for BAS. Unfortunately, the foreign press ignored this distinction. The fact that this incident came shortly after the financial minister got in a row with BAS over science funding (and some remarks about 'feudal elders') is probably a coincidence. Probably.

Our progress in developing 'flying saucer' technology should have already been developed. We are simply not a scientific civilization. Our progress is too slow.


Must agree with that.


There are so many branches in science and technology that need our complete attention and creativity. The above is not a priority for our evolution. I have to take back my words and not agree on the above statement.

It will be eventually. With the way the world is going, we'll either destroy all our resources or ourselves whichever comes first. For centuries man has stared at the stars. With our current attitudes, the only hope left is to aim for them.


In his book Quantum shift in the Global Brain, Ervin Laszlo wrote there will come a point of no return in our evolution. I believe he calls it the breakpoint . That would be the moment in time where our evolution will go either downhill or rise further. Of course, it is all up to our current and future actions what will happen at that moment in time. He didn't mention when that moment would be.

I like what I am reading! This is partly agreeing with my own long held theory about the universe. But there are too many "mights" for any conclusions yet. It is as much a theory as mine is, but first time I've found anyone seemingly agreeing with me.

According to new research, there might not have been a big bang. Instead, the universe might have existed forever. The theory was derived from the mathematics of general relativity, and compliment Einstein’s theory of general relativity.

“The Big Ban singularity is the most serious problem of general relativity because the laws of physics appear to break down there.” – Ahmed Farag Ali, Benha University, Co-Author of the study. The big bang theory postulates that everything in existence resulted from a single event that launched the creation of the entire universe and that everything in existence today was once part of a single infinitely dense point, also known as the “singularity.”

This is one out of many criticisms regarding the big bang theory. There are many considerations to be pondered. Can something come from nothing? What about quantum mechanics and the possibility that there is no moment of time at which the universe did not exist?

“The scientists propose that this fluid might be composed of gravitons—hypothetical massless particles that mediate the force of gravity. If they exist, gravitons are thought to play a key role in a theory of quantum gravity.



I have a problem with the underlined word. Something must have come from nothing. How can our beginning be infinite? In my opinion the universe will end in an infinite darkness once the elements of which stars are formed, are exhausted. I mentioned before here that the period before the big bang is a subject for theologians and philosophers and I'm afraid I have to remain at my standpoint. Very frustrating.

The above mentioned fluid would be dark energy I presume?

When NASA's New Horizons mission completes its study of Pluto in the summer of 2015, data from Earth will stream to the spacecraft to create a digital record that it will carry with it beyond the solar system. The record echoes the Golden Record carried by NASA's Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecraft in the 1970s and the plaques onboard the Pioneer spacecraft.

The underneath possibility looks like the most plausible for me:

Possibility 8) Higher civilizations are aware of us and observing us (AKA the “Zoo Hypothesis”). As far as we know, super-intelligent civilizations exist in a tightly-regulated galaxy, and our Earth is treated like part of a vast and protected national park, with a strict “Look but don’t touch” rule for planets like ours. We wouldn’t notice them, because if a far smarter species wanted to observe us, it would know how to easily do so without us realizing it. Maybe there’s a rule similar to the Star Trek’s “Prime Directive” which prohibits super-intelligent beings from making any open contact with lesser species like us or revealing themselves in any way, until the lesser species has reached a certain level of intelligence.

It is good to see a thread on Philosophy in the Science corner. In my opinion Philosophy cannot be seen as a pseudo-science. It complements the actual sciences such as Maths, Fyzix, etc. The problem with Philosophy, in my opinion, is the different opinions of different individuals with no basic truth they can rely on except for the ancient philosophers, but who says that they were right?

Photons are transferors of light. What I wonder about is if they would possess energy of their own to be able to create or rather gain momentum.

I can't answer that, I don't have enough knowledge. This link may help


Photons possess kinetic energy of their own.

She also could be upset about something. Just a minor change can trigger that. Yes to have her see a Vet.


I gave her extra attention and special food. She seems to be doing better now. I'm a bit concerned as she is scratching a lot and losing big chunks of hair. There's a piece in her fur that's completely bald now. I'm going to the vet when Lisa and Yoko are back from camp.

Oh, please do get kitty to the vet.
May be nothing, but you can't work on behavioral matters unless medical matters are ruled out first.
My Bandit kitty went through that a long time ago....bladder infection made it hurt when using the litterbox, so she stopped using the litterbox.

Best wishes for Siyah kitty.


Thank you Mark. I'm leaving for Paris this evening and I'm taking her with me to my granddads first. She could have a fun time with Pitou, my granddad's cat. Maybe she will feel better then, not being alone.
