Convey human traits to ET?!
Mar 31, 2003 Dov, in biologicalEvolution.
Here is an example of an absurd notion :
On 21 March 2003 J Whitfield reports on SETI workshops. Artists and scientists discuss how to tell ET, alien civilizations, about "humanity", " morality", "altruism","aestheticism"….
This is an absurd notion because human culture is a single unique random occurance evolutionary creation and it is unlikely that anywhere else in our galaxy or farther there is an organism that might notice/grasp any human message. Are we capable of such a notice/exchange even with the genes, our elementary own base-organisms ? or of grasping/accepting their protein toolings in our own base cells as equivalent to human cultural aspects for humans ?
