Thanks a lot to Brilliant for supporting this channel.
Finding alien life on a distant planet would be amazing news - or would it? If we are not the only intelligent life in the universe, this probably means our days are numbered and doom is certain.

      @Random Demon We're lucky the stars are so far apart. Creatures and worlds are isolated from each other. This "quarantine" is weakened only for those who have sufficient self-awareness and prudence to travel from star to star.

      @Traps Sebastian von Horner at the dawn of SETI, in the early 1960s, pointed to the naivety of the inference about the absence of extraterrestrial civilizations in the observable universe. In his opinion, having instruments so imperfect and not adapted specifically for the search for artificial radio signals, it is pseudoscientific to declare that the "silence of the Universe" is an experimentally established fact. A simple example: the antenna of the Evpatoria radar, used for the transmission of MCM (interstellar radio messages), has a very narrow radiation pattern, occupying one ten-millionth part of it in the sky.The search for MRP is carried out using the same antennas. Hence, the probability that at the moment when an extraterrestrial civilization emits MCI towards the Earth we are looking exactly in the right direction turns out to be absolutely negligible, since this probability is the product of the indicated parts. In addition, it is required to “guess” the MCR transmission time and tune the receiver to the required wavelength. Von Horner noted that only people infinitely far from reality can seriously claim that the absence of signals is equivalent to the absence of extraterrestrial civilizations.

    I don't understand why the discovery of life intelligent or not would mean we haven't passed the filter? If we can find new life forms wouldn't that mean 100٪ they haven't hit the filter. The ruins of civilization, i understand the evidence of the filter there. Finding nothing is the most compelling evidence, that means nothing is surviving.

There are way other options and reasons and to say that there are honestly no signs of other intelligent life out there with the simple example of the Tic Tac things that the u.s. Air Force Chase recently and public information act alone I mean come on but we can query on why we don't see more of different types of life or why don't we publicly fully publicly share the information that we do have on the different lives outside of Earth that we did discover but this crap Ola that you are trying to pass off as genuine is saddening as well as maddening

      It sounds like you have been watching too much Star Trek. lol! Perhaps it is time to read a real science book = specifically one on evolution...........then look around you. Moral of the story: what we colloquially refer to as "problem solving intelligence" here on the Earth is associated with = predatory species. A predator by nature must be able to outthink their prey. Thus despite our supposed advancements as the apex species on the planet we still war upon ourselves and others over various things. Such conflict is not isolated to humans either as even microorganisms war with each other over resources. This means that belief that life which evolved elsewhere would somehow be "benevolent" is both myopic and anthropomorphism for our part. It is more science fiction than science being spread via Hollywood over the past decades. Evolution favors the strong who dominate the weak...............always has. So it is shortsighted to assume anything other than what we see here on Earth as our example of how life evolves. Always base conclusions on what you actually see and not what you "hope" to see. Things turn out better when you do.

    I'm confused. I'd think that if we found life that was already inter-planetary, it would mean that the filter is either beyond the inter-planetary step, or that there isn't one. Of course, it could mean this would be the first species to conquer the filter, I suppose it's all uncertain. More facts are needed.

    Here is *_THE GREAT FILTER_* Ok, so, "The great filter" was a theory created by scientists to explain why we, humans, haven't found any intelligent alien life. If I summarise it, its basically a filter that us humans might have already passed - the filter is behind us. (meaning we are ahead of ALL other species in our universe) Or, the worse version: The filter is infront of us, meaning that the human species is bound to be extinct soon - the great filter is something not many species can pass, maybe the end of us soon. A scary theory, yes, but if we have passed the filter then we possibly could have reached a step that is impossible for alien life making us the lucky ones.

    If you think we'd run amok upon discovery of alien life, they could have a one hour special, during the Super Bowl, to gently nudge us into it. Of course, alien primitive life would be exciting...to scientists. As to intelligent life, if we discover them out there, it'll be a great supplement to NLcameras. Only if they come here would most people be impressed. If they come in peace, makes for a great movie. If they come primed for war, we'll have as much chance as a PeeWee football team against Alabama. Just remember: Klaatu, Barata, Nikto...

      Consider the cane toad. It naturally occurs in some parts of the world where it would eat beetles such as infested sugar cane fields. So some enterprising individual decided back in the 1930's to introduce it to Australia in the belief it would help to eliminate the beetles which plagued sugar cane agriculture there...........except that: 1 - the toad having not evolved in Australia had no natural predators. 2 - meanwhile the toad had natural defenses which precluded new predators among Australia's indigenous species eating it. Moral of the story: today the cane toad is a plague in Australia. It has decimated native indigenous species while as it has no predators in Australia to keep its numbers in check = thus it has exploded in population. So the only way to detect bacteria on another planet would be to go there. Except we might then potentially upon doing so contaminate ourselves and should we then bring it back to the Earth to introduce it inadvertently here = set off a chain reaction the same as happened in Australia. The biodiversity of the Earth is a "balance". Flora, fauna, and even microorganisms are kept in check by others via an evolutionary balance whereby each has its own natural predators to keep it in check. Were we to introduce bacterial life from elsewhere into our ecosystem it could potentially overwhelm similar life here on Earth - to include ourselves - leading to disastrous consequences. Have a nice day.

    I prefer to think we just don't have sufficient resolution to resolve where alien life may exist - and those aliens looking back at us are all guided by a Starfleet-esque principle not to interfere with primitive civilizations. We can probably assume a species that can travel between solar systems is beyond greed, and likely makes stealth from simplistic life a priority. Agree the distances involved are probably the greatest filter, the time and cost to travel across that much space are a huge barrier.

    I don't particularly agree with the statement that finding life would be bad. Perhaps, finding new life, would change how we operate and thus grant us the ability to break past this filter. Instead of feeling alone and isolated as a species, it could inspire us to strive to space faster, push harder to get out there. Make us work together as a species for a common goal. Maybe even end our destructive ways. Finding new life doesn't mean we failed the filter, it just means we know its possible, and will find a way.

      Finding evidence of "life" in general would not be bad. If however intelligent life were to find us = that might be bad for us. Contrary to all the anthropomorphizing and Hollywood inspired nonsense pushed over the years there is no real evidence to support intelligent life which evolved on other planets would somehow be "benevolent". In fact evolution supports the alternative in that what we colloquially refer to as "problem solving intelligence" here on Earth is typically seen in predatory species - ourselves included. Something new to think about.

    Also worth noting that the filter need not be lethal - it just has to prevent a civilization from expanding between stars - and we're pretty sure we're looking that filter right in the face. Namely, the Speed of Light. It may not kill us, but it will probably never let us leave our solar system.

    It's worth mentioning that the Mitochondria/Eukaryote almost certainly didn't begin with a large cell *eating* a smaller one - it far more likely began with the smaller cell aggressively parasitizing the larger one, until they gradually evolved in parallel to co-exist, rather than conflict. This kind of predator->parasite->symbiote progression of relationships is pretty well understood evolutionary - whereas there's no precedent for one thing accidentally swallowing another thing and somehow becoming symbiotic with it by strange accident.

    If you've ever done lab work involving bacteria and petri dishes, you know where humanity's going and we haven't encountered anyone because we've been emmiting radiowaves only for a hundred years, which means a 100 light-years-radius bubble reach, inside a galaxy tenths of thousands of light-years across. Nobody knows we're here or they know better than to say hi to us.

    But when we think to it a bit, if we discover an intelligent life that is much more evolved than us, it would be great for us because they may not be great filters at all 😁
