    Finding alien life on a distant planet would be amazing news - or would it? If we are not the only intelligent life in the universe, this probably means our days are numbered and doom is certain.

    Distance is the great filter. Traversing even to our nearest neighbor, the moon, still takes three days. We can see the moon, and it still takes...three days to get to it.
    To get anywhere in space, we're going to need some speed, serious speed. We might even need...LUDICROUS speed. We need to get to other solar systems in a matter of weeks, as in a small number of weeks.
    If there's a such thing as warp drive, we need to figure it out. Or else, leaving Earth will be virtually impossible.
    Odds are, we were born probably a couple thousand years too early.

    Well, with this and other interpretations of alien life, this all assumes that they will undergo the exact same sequence of evolution that we did (while also assuming they are carbon based and not something like silicon or some other complicated series of chemical reactions)

    Because genetic mutation is that which occurs often randomly and its only based on local environment that determines if it stays or not, so to expect an alien race to evolve into something similar to humans is rare, more than likely they may create their own unique branches where something hard for us to conceive would be resulted. For example, we project that these beings would have brains or the idea of an empire because that is what we can imagine, when aliens may have had such a divergent series of changes that they may not behave or be of the same nature, like say a dormant hivemind group that requires little energy and finds no purpose in exploring and "reaching out", in odds to us humanoids who require constant resources and have an innate instinct for the idea of territory.

    Or maybe also that we are expecting alien life to look familiar enough to us to find them through telescopes when in actuality they might be so foreign that it could have evolved into something we cannot even recognize as life.

    Nobody ever said that there was only one filter. If there is a filter behind us, that's no reason to believe there isn't one ahead of us. If there ISN'T one behind us, there isn't a reason to think one IS ahead of us. The presence/absence of a filter in one place does not cause/prevent a filter from existing elsewhere.

  • SharkShocker

    Don't know why, but I like to imagine that aliens are so advanced and are able to be so old that they literally have bets on what race will win and extinction events are just a part of the game. "So far the game is still going strong as Jurblugr is still in the lead with their chosen race of humans. It's been seen that other participants attempted to copy Jurblugr's idea with humans and increased intelligence, but unfortunately they may be too little too late as humans are looking to colonizing the solar system within just a few centuries! Amazing! This likely could've only been accomplished thanks to an absence of extinction events. However, Drechora has been saving up additional environmental upgrade points as of late and it's presumed that they'll use them on Yellowstone to create another one. Will Drechora set this off before enough humans can escape, or will Jurblugr win this game and as such win all the money? Find out next decade on Total Drama Planet!"

    The content of this one is super interesting, but at the same time you don't really make a strong argument to back up your otherwise click-baity title. Why is alien life bad exactly? You just kind of say it is. If anything it sounds like, from this episode alone, that the presence of alien life makes overcoming the great filter more possible.

    Think about it for a minute, the Jews and Arabs have been fighting over a small piece of land that the Jews abandoned it and all moved to Egypt. After living in Egypt for a few hundred years, they decided to move back. How ever, while they were gone for a few centuries, Arabs moved in and settled most of it to what it is today. But because the Jews were there originally first, are demanding it all be returned. Aliens were here a few thousands of years ago and should they return are gonna to be no different than the Jews and want it all back.

    i belive that this filter is us.. i mean just think about it.. we know for a fact that we as a species have limitations neurologically to see and hear and feel above a set frequency.. thats why dogs can hear and see what we cant see.. maybe these "aliens" are here among us ,right in front of us.. but we will never know with our limited resources or in built senses.. only if we could find a way to fire our senses or let go of our limited senses.. may be thats why people with enhanced consiousness know or understand a bit more than we do.. maybe these limitations are here because our brain knows that our body cant handle that level of software.. maybe thats why people with heightened consiousness leave their body.. maybe thats what is known as liberation or moksha.. its your choice..

    I don't understand when they say "we should be able to see something." What, exactly?
    We detect habitable planets as a variation in the brightness of a star - that is to say, we don't even observe the planets directly. What could a civilization reasonably produce that we would be able to detect?
    Even radio signals are inconceivable to detect. It's like a fishing pole with a 1 foot cast length and you're standing on the other side of the lake precisely 80km away. Surely you can't detect the lure from that far?
    So what, exactly? We just see planets and solar systems and assume because there's no dyson sphere it's uninhabited? I genuinely want to know what they are looking for and not seeing.

    • Vary Olla
      Vary Olla 3 days ago +2

      You do not understand radio astronomy I take it. So what is a radio wave?? Answer: electromagnetic radiation which is being transmitted in a certain frequency range = in other words *ENERGY.* Meanwhile spectroscopy detects and analyzes light.
      So understanding those 2 basic things = apply them to questions of matter and energy analysis. So if we can detect energy waves at a great distance - we can then ascertain the "background" energy readings for a given area of space. Now if we happen to discover EM readings outside of what is to be expected = we now have the basis for trying to establish what is producing that energy outside of the norm. The Earth as an example employs radio waves all the time. Accordingly anyone looking at the Earth from outer space = should see all that energy being emitted out into the surrounding space if they have the capacity to measure EM readings.
      Meanwhile as noted we can also measure light via the spectral bands which make it up. Now all matter is comprised of various elements = each which reflects a definitive spectral pattern. So we look at the Sun as an example and we see the light being emitted from it when analyzed is showing the patterns of elements such as hydrogen or helium etc.. Accordingly we can determine it is made up of those elements. That is how we establish "habitable" planets via the elemental make up of them as established by the light they are reflecting.
      So let's sum up. We look into space for signs of energy which is outside of the "norm" + elemental make up of planets as determined by the light spectra they give off. So a planet inhabited by a developing civilization should emit energy we can detect along with possibly displaying a elemental make up we believe to be capable of supporting advanced life. That pretty much sums it up. Have a nice day.

    What if... There's no great filter, and life is just so far away that we can't see it because of light's traveling speed, and there's tons of them because of the lack of this filter, and when they see us, they'll be like, "yo, dudes, there's a bunch of people livin' on a rock out in the middle of nowhere, go give 'em some juice boxes or whatever."
    And then they come over and they're like "Hey, dudes, we just saw you on your rock in our telescope so we just worm hole-d right over to say hello, and welcome to the biggest neighborhood ever. You need some spaceships or anything?"

  • Marc Meier
    Marc Meier 4 days ago +1

    Nice vid, but I can’t say I agree. Finding intelligent life could as much imply the “filter” is *behind* us. For instance, if we find a galaxy full of intelligent alien life tomorrow, it would likely mean we’ve already passed whatever threshold there was to keep others from reaching this point.
    Additionally, finding remnants of life shouldn’t imply our impending doom! Just because we happened to evolve from primates, making us aggressive, territorial, and somewhat insensitive towards our planet, doesn’t mean all intelligent life would evolve in the same way.
    Lastly, life is purely limited by the way we define it. Who’s to say all other lifeforms even need the same resources we need to survive? i.e oxygen, water, etc...

    Developed species will tend to destroy the planet, as greed (of power, resources etc.) is the driving force behind large-scale development.
    It is inevitable to stop greed-driven species from self destruction. Only in rare case, if species are enlightened to not cause harm to the ecosystem for the trade of resources. But this also implies that the species will not aspire for technological expansive development.

    I really don't like that you just *assume* that alien life would be bad for just *us*. It could possibly destroy the alien life, too. Humans have developed to kill everything that is different, Which I hate, so that extra terrestrial life could possibly be more "doomed" than us. And, there is a chance that we ally with the aliens, so no one will be "doomed". Like, if we allied with them, if our sun were to explode or a black hole appears to destroy our planet, they could possibly help us. Just because it is different, it does not mean that it will doom us. Like or comment if you agree, since I don't like people that see the world in black in white like Kurzgesagt does.

    Finding extraterrestrial civilisation could only be the greatest "motivator" to change our minds. It would be more beneficial for us : we would finally stop our egoistic "We Are The Only Planet", selfish, primitive behaviour, to hopefully realise what life is meant to be : to become more aware about Science, Art, and Peace, and not the profit-capitalistic values that are destroying our planet.

    I don't understand why Advance Alien life is so often represented so negatively. They had to integrate some noble values like respect, peace and compassion to evolve and reach this higher step of evolution, instead of destroying others.

    The problem with this "Great Filter" theory is that it only explains one possibility out of hundreds if not thousands of different possibilities. The Great Filter theory is only an explanation as to why it might be very difficult to discover life elsewhere in our universe so if for some reason we actually find life it isn't a given that it would be bad for us because the theory says so, because such an event would call to question whether there is a "Great Filter" in the first place. The problem is that even though we have tried to look for life elsewhere (and we like to believe that advance sentient life would want to contact us if they could), we haven't done enough to conclude that if there was intelligent life out there we should have been able to contact them by now or they should have contacted us. For all we know some of the organisms on earth, such as the tardigrade, could have origins then earth itself. Also even though it is very unlikely it is possible that we have been contacted by another sentient life form that for some reason or another didn't become common knowledge to the rest of us.

    On the other hand, if you wish for our civilisation to end, discovering alien life would be great news!! Life is sorrow, why bother? And we would be able to witness an extraordinary event!

    What if there is life on other planets but there so advance that they know how to make it seem that there is no life on that planet.
    Well probably they don't want to show off quick they probably seeing how we're going and probably after they show themselves. If that's true they probably want to build trust mabye because they was another advance civilization and they took them over and now they are careful who they meet and don't show themselves like notin they probably wait.
    That's my theory

      Everything regarding aliens is just assumptions. We have to remember we are still “young”, only 10 thousand years of civilization.
