|Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home|
|I do believe that extraterrestrial life exists in the universe. Whether that life is intelligent or not is the big debate as ET life could be as simple as plant life.|
The most likely way that humans will discover ET life will be leaving the confines of Earth and exploring outside our own solar system.
The benefits/dangers of a discovery would boil down to one topic...our health. ET life could promote the discovery of new disease fighting agents or the discovery could lead to new diseases period.
Transmitting a beacon should be done, if we haven't been doing it already. Remember the SCI-FI movies that tell of our TV transmissions being picked up by an alien race? I think that this would be the WRONG message to send to ET.
I run SETI@home mostly as a pleasant diversion to offset my other computer work. I think this project is fascinating and I wanted to help out any way I could.
Suggestions? If ET is found I think the SETI@home people should be the first to attend the greeting. After all, we are the only ones that truly believe.
