As a species should we advertise our presence in the galaxy or hide?

Posted by: 1814Username

On a fool would think in this infinite universe that we are the only intelligent life. Just look at our planet alone. There is infinite life. This being the case. Is it prudent we advertise our presence?

No, if an alien race can get to us, they are much more advanced than us.

We shouldn't try to provoke a reaction.We should just be patient and let them find us...

It's painfully obvious that you haven't seen any of the sci-fi movies with bug-like aliens that consider us tasty little morsels.

Because sci-fi movies are VERY accurate, aren't they?

If that's the case, I would be throbbing as I killed them. I actually welcome that.

Hide and bide our time until we are really powerful at least level two or three and then be like hey guys and they can't do anything to us unless they Are a level above us

Basically, just think about what human-kind would do if we traveled to another planet and found less technologically-advanced inhabitants. Yeah, no thanks.

The problem with fearing a violent reaction is...A bit complicated. For one, it's assuming that a super advanced civilization would actually have an interest in violence and it is also assuming that they share our lazy-ass, selfish and shortsighted style of politics - IE: War, War, WAR to the max. No compromise.
