問題: METI航天技術

Write to Galaxies

+4  

Treat galaxies like CD drives to send directional laser updates of our civilization, and survive in the minds of the distant future civilizations.

YAML 想法

Given that METI (MEssaging to Extraterrestrial Intelligence) is generally thought to be risky [*], it may be unlikely to have those civilizations try to signal to all the stars in the Milky Way, and upon picking up such signals, they would likely keep silence to keep strategic advantages.

So, statistically and from risk analysis perspective, we'd probably have better odds at discovering aliens by searching for them in other galaxies (not in Milky Way).

Imagine that we do intercept an informative signal of an intelligent civilization somewhere out there in the Andromeda galaxy. We'd know something very special, down to a particular star system, and we'd be guessing, whether it still exists, because it happened 2.5 million years ago. We'd probably even feel safe to send a signal back, and continue broadcasting, especially if the signal that we picked up were to be periodic like blog updates about that civilization.

If the signals from aliens in another galaxy were periodic and lasting, with new bits of information every time, it would certainly be something that stays breaking the news here in the Solar system. Inspired by that, a project from our side could be to set up powerful lasers, pointed to the nearby galaxies, and broadcasting our status like that not to our local, but to the future civilizations that don't yet exist in other galaxies.

A single laser could send out bursts of packages to cover entire Andromeda, treating Andromeda like a CD drive, and using same techniques to write to CD drive with a laser (just more bits per dot), over a period of say, a month, and repeat that. This way, all the civilizations in the Andromeda galaxy, in the line of sight to the Milky Way could get monthly updates. That would certainly increase the odds of them discovering us, and if other civilizations in other galaxies had the same way of thinking, and pointed their lasers to the Milky Way, perhaps we just need more powerful telescopes to pick that up: the intergalactic chatter might actually be a real phenomenon, that happens, cause: over very large distances, even the potential enemies have enough time to become friends.

It's amazing to think, that "if you take our most powerful lasers, and our largest mirrors, and pair them together, for a fraction of a second, they can produce light that outshines the Sun by factors of a thousand at more than a thousand light-years away." -- so the method that this particular way implies, is that of using such extremely directional lasers, to make them see a new star appearing and flickering in the Milky Way, so that, with sufficiently large telescopes they could read our "blog posts" from.

尹與及,

好吧,這個主意就是這樣。好吧,我們可以選擇一組最接近的星系來做到這一點。

Well, the idea is something like that. Well, we could choose a set of closest galaxies to do that.

LMC可能距離太近,因此可能被視爲危險向其發送消息。

而且,...如果我們發送最有用的信息以求生存,我們會稱其爲星際之愛,因爲實際上可能存在[共同目標](https://blog.mindey.com/2017/01 / 03 /一起逃逸熵黑洞/

LMC is probably too near, and thus may be considered dangerous to message to.

And,... if we send the most useful information for survival of information, would we call this -- intergalactic love, as there actually may be a common goal of preserving information. Additionally, if we do start think together as a civilization, what to send to the future civilizations, it may help us as a civilization politically.

Mindey,

知道綠色恆星不能自然存在於宇宙中,我們可以有目的地製造一顆綠色恆星(鏈接指向一個視頻,回答爲什麼綠色恆星可以不存在)用綠色激光對從仙女座觀察銀河系的人來說是綠色的;)另一方面,也許我們和地球上的生命主要在可見光譜中看到的事實是相當隨機的,--誰會正在專門尋找具有 520 或 532 nm 波長光的恆星?

Knowing that green stars can't exist naturally in the Universe, we could purposefully make a green star (link leads to a video answering why green stars can't exist) with a green laser to appear green to someone viewing MilkyWay galaxy from Andromeda ;) On the other hand, perhaps the fact that we and life on Earth primarily sees in the visual spectrum is quite random, -- who out there would be looking specifically for stars with 520 or 532 nm wavelength light?


考慮發送信號的週期性:宜居區內行星的中位軌道週期除以 6 到 12 之間的數字可能是一個好的開始。這是假設大多數技術文明將進化出類似手的肢體,每個肢體有 3 到 6 個手指,並且可能將它們用作參考基礎,用於計算和劃分他們的年份(軌道週期)到參考基礎中的這個數量的部分.

Thinking of periodicity of sending signals: probably median orbital period of planets within habitable zones divided by a number between 6 and 12 could be a good start. This is assuming that most technological civilizations will have evolved hand-like limbs, which had from 3 to 6 fingers each, and likely used them as reference base for counting and dividing their year (orbital period) into this number of parts in the reference base.
