Our imaginations have always designed extraterrestrial life forms based on what we know and this is what we look for throughout the cosmos, but we must expand our search to encompass the possibility of finding extraterrestrial life in the form of machines.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard or thought in our lives that aliens could actually be artificial intelligence. British astronomer Lord Rees believes that aliens are robots that destroyed their creators.
Lord Martin Rees, Britain’s top Astronomer Royal, has revealed that he believes aliens will be robots. A world was imagined where the Terminators “destroyed their organic creators”.
Lord Rees said that extraterrestrial beings will be nothing to humanity and will stay with the world of their creators, as seen in many science fiction movies, but we’ve seen how many times science fiction has become real science.
Susan Schneider, a philosophy professor at the University of Connecticut, also confirmed that she believes the same as Lord Martin Rees.
At the University of Connecticut, they joined a handful of astronomers, including Seth Shostak, director of NASA’s Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, or SETI, program, NASA astrobiologist Paul Davies, and Library of Congress astrobiology president Stephen Dick to support the idea that artificial intelligence is probably dominant in the universe.
In his article “Alien Minds: The Minds of Extraterrestrials” written for an upcoming publication by NASA, Schneider describes why extraterrestrial artificial life forms are likely to be dominant, and how these creatures might think – please see more below. This article!
Seth Shostak (NASA) said: “Most people have an iconic idea of aliens as they are biological creatures, but that makes no sense of the timescale argument” , “I bet with dozens of astronomers that if we get an extraterrestrial signal , it will be artificial life.”
It would be “highly unlikely” to find human-like extraterrestrial beings, said Lord Martin Rees, 74. Next, “organic intelligence” is described as a “splinter” between the primordial stages of life and the dominant age of machines.
Scientist Stephen Hawking previously warned against expecting aliens to come to Earth, while warning that the development of AI could be a “thing of value” for humanity – strangely, Stephen Hawking is now involved in a billion-dollar project. dollars getting involved in the search for aliens and life forms in space.
“My hunch is that if we detect an extraterrestrial intelligence, it will be nothing like us. It will be some sort of electronic entity, ” he said during an interview at Trinity College.
Lord Rees said: “In other words, the period of time occupied by organic intelligence is just a sliver between the beginning of life and the long machine age. As these civilizations develop at different rates, it is highly unlikely that we will find intelligent life at the same stage of development as we are.”
It’s interesting how the world’s top scientists and astronomers are now talking about aliens, something that would have been laughed at 10, 20 years ago.
Does the elite know something we don’t and are trying to instill that thought in all of our heads? Maybe they know there is life in space and where does it come from?
