Social Science Article on “Communication with Extraterrestrial Intelligence”

Cologne (Germany) – Can we even communicate with extraterrestrials without having developed a common communication culture? 

The astrophotographer and communication researcher Bernd Pröschold investigates this question in a recent journal article. 

The author himself is a member of the “Extraterrestrial Intelligence Research Network” and interested in the science of the border, known for his book “Extraterrestrial – the great taboo of our time: A special case in cultural theory“.

As Pröschold points out in his article “Communication with extraterrestrial intelligence” on the preprint server SSRN.com (the social science equivalent to ArXiv.org), “engaging in extraterrestrial intelligence is a paradoxical endeavor, as it necessarily involves human assumptions about the extraterrestrials.

However, this inevitably leads to not inconsiderable problems and questions, not least because “the communication of complex contents therefore requires a long sociocultural evolutionary process“, as it could be assumed to be unlikely in a first contact, said Pröschold. Rather, the question arises as to how communication with foreign entities can be maintained in the long term.

Bernd Pröschold.

In fact, the unlikelihood of a communicative success of communication between two completely alien civilizations is discussed by some scientists and researchers as a possible explanation of the so-called Fermi paradox, which asks where, with all the alleged abundance of potentially life-friendly planets, the “other” or at least their evidence remains, or why this has not been found long ago.

In view of the intended first contact with an extraterrestrial intelligence, Pröschold first describes a “zero point of sociocultural evolution”, in which no media exist yet and in which the addressee of communication can not be assumed that complex messages understood, let alone accepted“. The author continues: “Communication, as we know it from the Earth, is the result of a long evolutionary process in which media such as speech, writing, printing and finally social function systems were formed. These media increase the likelihood that communication will succeed and continue.

Communication with extraterrestrial intelligence, on the other hand, can not (yet) draw on evolutionary achievements that are likely to succeed.

Communicative success in contact with an extraterrestrial intelligence must therefore be considered unlikely, which is the scientific criticism criticized by some scientists for the “communicative optimism” of SETI programs (SETI = Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence = search for extraterrestrial intelligence) radikalisiere.

However, the assumption that communicative success with a foreign entity is unlikely does not mean that communication with extraterrestrial is impossible: Of course, contact scenarios are conceivable in which complex messages are exchanged.”

What these are, what possibilities there are, yet to successfully communicate in the light of a first-contact scenario and thus perhaps also to minimize a culture shock for the less advanced communication partner, Pröschold discusses in detail in his article, linked below.

NASA records again a large cube shaped UFO next to the Sun (Video)

A new photograph taken by a NASA satellite is giving enough to talk about, because in it you can see, again, a strange cube shaped UFO near the Sun.

cube shaped UFO

The alleged finding was made by researcher Scott Waring, editor of the popular UFO website “Ufo Sightings Daily”. According to this ufologist, in the image taken last February by SOHO, belonging to NASA, we can see an enormous cube-shaped object that, according to him, would be an extraterrestrial spaceship.

NASA’s SOHO Science Archive, where Waring found the alien cube, is a downloadable program that allows anyone to track the photo file of NASA’s sun.(cube shaped UFO)

Waring believes that this anomaly in space is very similar to one already seen in October 2018, but this time appears with less brightness and with a presumed design of lines on its surface.

The files contain a combination of real-time data and solar telemetry with images and films from the Sun. However, NASA has mentioned that the alleged ship is not such, since it would only be an optical defect caused by cosmic rays that hit the lens of the SOHO.

What do you think about this UFO “cube” near the Sun? Watch the following video and leave us your comment below.

Mysterious huge white orb flew over Texas

The following video, published recently on YouTube by Mexican ufologist Pedro Ramirez, was received on April 8 of this year in the US city of Stephenville, Texas. It is reported that a group of local residents suddenly saw in the sky a strange anomaly and captured it on the camera of a smartphone.

Video shows a strange white object flying among rare clouds on daytime sky. UFO are suspiciously similar to some mysterious sphere that does not fit into the framework of ordinary celestial phenomena.

Some netizens stated that this is just a small cloud. However, such a theory does not hold water. Firstly, it is unlikely that nature has created a perfectly smooth spherical cloud. Secondly, the clouds are not so dense and do not have clear boundaries.

Pedro Ramirez and many of his colleagues expectedly concluded that this was an aircraft of representatives of an extraterrestrial civilization. According to ufologists, most of these “alien guests” are UAVs, controlled from distant space, and they can be the most bizarre forms and states, including disguised as clouds.

Such drones study our Earth, ufologist says. They collect various samples and data, but do not affect people’s lives in any way. Why all this is necessary for aliens, remains a mystery to researchers.

Mysterious Art depicting Ancient Aliens and Intelligent Ancestors

We are immersed in the immense theme of UFOs on Earth, which, according to some, has begun since the beginning of the human race and, according to the same, some have since been proven to have seen UFOs . Whether it is so I think it is a matter of personal judgment.

While living in Ecuador, a father received a lot of gifts from the local, some of which were quite ancient and not so typical of ancient art. In this photo depicted deity seems doubtful to today’s cosmonauts.

And of course, after all, we can not miss the very famous  crystal skull, which is said to be legally hand-drawn for hundreds of years and almost impossible. In fact, in one of his first studies a scientist looking at him under the microscope said that he really should not exist.

We continue the theme from the previous road that was for ancient mysterious sculptures, and today we will also be acquainted with the strange drawings of the past.

On the drawing below, the author drew something strange on November 4, 1697. in the German city of Hamburg.

The illustration below shows something drawn by Admiral Blyu in his book Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, published in 1660. Something strange is seen, which hovers over two Dutch ships.

Strange looking is the next illustration, which shows large black and white circles over Basel in Switzerland in 1566. Notice the reactions of people.

What exactly is shown in the following illustration I think everyone should decide for themselves, but it is certainly quite controversial.

Little by little, we reach our latitudes, where we see a strange image below in Vysoki Dechani Monastery in Kosovo.

We also reach the borders of our country, where there are also many similar images as perhaps the most famous in the church “Transfiguration of the Lord”

In the 15th Century in Ben, France, strange images could also be found, like the lower one depicting something that remarkably resembles our contemporary concept of a flying saucer.

Drawn in 1710. and today exposed at the Fujivian Museum in Cambridge , the picture “The Birth of Christ” shows something very strange.

After the first two articles related to strange engravings and sculptures and the strange drawings of the past today, we are focusing on the next quirks that this time relate to cave paintings in ancient times.

The picture below, painted in a cave in Tanzania, shows two figures strangely reminiscent of flying saucers . The painting of the cave wall dates back to about 29,000 years.

Found in a cave near Kimberley, Australia, the next two cave drawings show strange creatures drawn there more than 5,000 years ago by the Aborigines in these lands.

Found in a cave in the Sahara Desert and created around the 6th millennium before the harvest, the following drawings again puzzled more than anything else we are used to seeing.

The next cave paintings were discovered in a cave in France called “Pech Merle” and are believed to have been created 17-19 years ago by the ancient people inhabiting these places.

And the last one found today in Peru and created 14-16 thousand years ago by the Indians in the region. There is more perplexity than anything that remains.
