Alien Technology Could Be Too Advanced For Us, Researcher Affirms
“Is alien technology too advanced for us to make contact?” This is what writer Trevor Mahoney wonders in one of his most recent articles published on the famous online community Medium.
According to the American researcher, “maybe our signals are simply too primitive to be picked up by another civilization”, and this could be the reason why signals from projects like the Voyager program still remain unanswered.
“Our universe alone is roughly 13.8 billion years old and it’s mind-boggling to think that we are the first to have developed during that time”, Mr Mahoney expressed. “Maybe they [aliens] have been communicating with each other for years in ways we can’t comprehend. The signals we have been sending out could be so primitive that they aren’t even picking them up”, he said.
In the opinion of the writer, extraterrestrial civilisations could have been using laser pulses to communicate with us, but unfortunately we have not been able to process their signals. “Some believe laser pulses being shot out into the universe by other civilizations were missed by us because we were not looking for them”, he mentioned. “The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, SETI, has recently developed a new detection system known as Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System, or VERITA. This technology is meant to scan the universe for short flashes of light near stars, as powerful pulses would temporarily dim the light of a star in comparison”, he explained.
“Another common theory doesn’t revolve around light pulses, but rather Neutrino Signals. Our society relies heavily on radio signals as a form of communication and we run on the assumption that other societies would use this form as well. However, some believe Neutrino particles could be used as communication”, Mr Mahoney asserted. “A Neutrino particle is a subatomic particle that results from radioactive decay. These particles interact with objects very weakly which allows them to easily pass through solid matter”, he continued.
“In my personal opinion, I believe that it is more likely an advanced civilization will stumble upon us by mistake long before we achieve the technological advancements necessary to communicate with them”, the California-born expert commented.
