Who says they are advanced? There were Dinosaurs on Earth for Millions and Millions of years before something evolved that could build a complex machine. It is very likely most places where life exists, it is unintelligent. And if it does evolve intelligence, who is to say they don’t just destroy themselves by producing so many CO2 emitting machines without ever learning enough science to see what is happening?

Just Imagine, if there had been no cold war, and therefore no driver to get us into a space race nobody would even realize global warming was happening except maybe for an even smaller less significant number of scientists. Instead, we got off the planet, everyone got to see Earth Rise, nobody knew how hot it was on Venus, nobody thought to think of Earth as a Pale Blue dot suspended in a sunbeam in a vast ocean of nothingness that needed to be taken care of and attended to, not exploited for every carbon atom that could be burned.

Just imagine a race of peaceful non-waring intelligent beings who always lived by a the word of a religious profit who told them to all get along and work out their disparagement peacefully?

Wouldn’t that be ironic?

Hey, maybe we’ll be one of those irrational cultures who gets to discover, study and remember the ones who were too rational to fight among themselves and become space-faring!


Or perhaps there are advanced cultures out there, that are as much more advanced to us as we are to an earthworm? They’d never even notice us as being “intelligent”
