If we encountered ET. What could we say to them to make them treat us as equals. Or even hey don't eat me?
If they can come here they have the computational power to figure out what small asteroid to nudge that will eventually end up knocking a large asteroid to hit us. Isn't that called the butterfly effect? Anyway that would do most of the damage right away. Then they could invade. Or just come probe some redneck.
No I think the butterfly effect is when you go back in time and accidentally step on a butterfly (or some other creature, as butterflies generally never gets stepped on), unleashing a series of events which ultimately leads to you never having been born.
Still, interesting concept. A bit slow maybe, but could be a Type II approach, those who haven't mastered the art of space-time manipulation yet and still have to spend years getting anywhere.
Wonder how annoying our music and tele-broadcasts are?
There is probably some four eyed nerd right now trying to decipher our broadcast of the three stooges. He is probably getting funded by his taxes saying that it may contain some profound and insightful philosophy. That is what we would do.
humans dont treat each other as equals, with aliens it wouldnt be any different.
Yes but we are equal under the law. They could have evolved something similar. I mean we wouldn't eat them just like we don't eat other humans. I think they would treat us with some respect. Not like pet dogs or something.
If ET came down and said " We helped you way back then but you were too primitive and superstitious and started calling us gods so we left." Could you imagine all the religious nuts saying the book of revelation said the false gods would come and proclaim that they were the gods.
