Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I am convinced the Seti type expolration of space is the most cost effective approach that may obtain life changeing results.I am not so sure that radio signals will be the medium. I havent yet really studied the subject my intuitve feelings is that if we do detect signal they might be some sort of spectral laser.I am thinking trillions of bits of information that are zipped together in packets that may piggyback on say a pulsar The experts say radio waves I'll accept that.
I know that the Star Trek sort of transporter type science fiction supports NASA yet I wish the truth of the problems and distances between solar systems would become the cieling to these stories.Just from what we know of the biological limitations of jet fighter pilots, I think it will become abundantly clear that complex systems will never travel at anything close to light speed without becomeing unrecognizeable in the downward shift of speeds.The absolute wall I think will be you will have to detect whats in your path in real time or you will colide with objects . That problem might be overcome with mapping but I find the idea of anyone blasting off at multiples of light speed thru unchartered space laughable.I also think that there may be some insect type biological form that may be able to exsist on not much more than heat and light.A biological space ship perhaps in a reverse metamorpasis of a butterfly. That sort of swarms thru space dyeing ehn it encounters some systems and planets but then thrives when it hits others and then swarms on.I do have a creative imagination.
Seti may have to set new levels of human patience and pererverance to that I say keep looking and good luck.
