Aliens looking back at us?
Do you think that there are other worlds with other species sentient like us, with about the same level of technology that is looking back through a telescope at a pale blue dot wondering if there is life on that "there X named world planet" out there?

We could have discovered that pale green or blue dot, a world twice the size of ours and think there could be life on it, and they could be staring back at our smaller blue dot wondering the same.

RE: Aliens looking back at us?
And maybe, on that other planet, aliens are wondering if aliens are wondering if they exist. Ohmy

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

RE: Aliens looking back at us?
It's an interesting thing to think about.

The problem for both sides is that the tyranny of distance puts us so far into each others past.

Our nearest neighbor is five light years away. So.. anything they 'see' is five years old. The further away... the worse it gets.

I don't see how there couldn't be. With the size of the known universe so far- and the fact that this planet demonstrates life in the universe- to think we are the only planet with intelligent life is absolutely absurd.

It is illogical, unreasonable, and as close to dishonest as anything can get.

It may be true that there is other intelligent life in the universe, but we don't actually know how unlikely consciousness/intelligence is.

It doesn't seem terribly unlikely as we see a gradation of intelligence in different species here on Earth, but that is our only example.

It is dishonest to claim there definitely is other intelligent life. You seem convinced that there is, I think it very likely that there is.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Yes, I am convinced beyond a reasonable doubt, but not beyond all doubt.

On the Alien Scale, I am a 6.9. out of a possible 7.0

RE: Aliens looking back at us?
I always liked thinking about stuff like that, secretly hoping that intelligent life actually exists somewhere else and that they are aware of us.

Since we haven't had any contact or haven't even seen any sign of such life existing though, they either don't exist or aren't aware of us (or they are aware and they think we suck Consider )

Or, maybe, we just won't let them.

RE: Aliens looking back at us?
What bothered me about your proposition from the first time I read this.. may be silly.. but to me, if they have our equal technology. They would of had to of had it for a bit longer to really see us.

I guess it's like our just finding a couple Goldilocks zone potential like planets out there making a dimple in the light of a distant Star. Maybe they are at that point but I think of them even being close to seeing us as some pale blue dot at all is a distance away from our tech.

No doubt. As Egor / Gordon has clearly demonstrated, even paramecia are conscious. Weeping

I thought by "looking back" you were talking about time travel. An advanced alien civilization may have learned to manipulate space-time.
