Well, on Voyager they put it on a record (made of gold, I think), for which they did, I think, helpfully supply a stylus. Let's just hope that the aliens have gramophone technology.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

I wonder which would be easier for a non terrestrial to get the content from, vinyl or a CD?

Personally I would go for a musical jewellery box type of device (can't remember what they are called) even though the sound range would be limited.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

I've heard people say we would communicate by the universal language of mathematics, like that plaque they put on the side of Voyager, or whichever one it was. They suppose that they'd be able to figure it out.

Or of course, the universal language of music. Didn't Damon Allbran write something specially that they stuck onto a CD taht they put on some probe a bit more recently?


Well our Main maths is Denary which is in Tens... It's thta way because we have 10 fingers. So if an Alien had 12 fingers he would have to figure that out as well. Then again i think they put the basic human aunotomy on the plaque, so maybe they will take note of the 10 fingers.

Yeah I did hear about that. Hope thye don't find the sound offensive. LOL

If aliens could build a 2.2 gigawatt transmitter then I don't think math would be much of a hurdle.

If it was an advanced civilization, they would gain nothing from us. Might use us as pets (dibs on being a kitty), or a zoo. We can offer them nothing. Perhaps we could offer to trade universal knowledge and compare data. However, the likely hood that they're even remotely close to us is slim to none and this Wow noise is actually a natural noise..

I believe we do have things to offer. As guinea pigs. If they have something they need to experiment, give them a nice ripe american military volonteer in exchange for some small peice of tech such as self-sustaining plasma or an advanced metal and we hand over all the people they want. Then we threaten the world and create a world-wide peace. and finally we destroy all the puny aliens foolish enough to give us their tech!  :clap: :gun: :clap:

If an alien race had 12 fingers they would have started with a numerical base of 12 early off as they first learned mathmatics. thereby to decode the WOW transmission we would need to know how many fingers they had. if anyone is confused as to why this is, simply ask your neighbor.

Just thought i'd explain your logic to people who dont get it... :tu:

Perhaps it was not meant for us. perhaps it was for another advanced civilization somewhere near to us that miss fired. like a mortar meant for an enemy base that hits an insertion force. anti-climatic and useless. Additionally, why would a civilization send a signal that would take hundreds of thousands of millions of years to reach its destination? by the time it reaches the other place, both targeted civilizations are dead or dying.

I thought I heard several recording are going out, or maybe that was some other goofy project.

If we want them to like us we should just beam "Ode to Joy" on a loop over and over and over. Who could conquer a planet that created such a masterpiece? If we want them to hate us anything off the Billboard Top 10 pop chart would have them locked and loaded before they pass the moon. And who could blame them?

Haha...totally agree. :lol:

We could always throw self preservation out the window and send them some Lady Gaga or some other such drivel. :whistle:

Oh ! twelve fingers ! How about a Alien with just the power to just say No ? No I dont believe in Aliens?
What if E.T`s think that theres no way that anything is out there? IT could happen.

This is a Work in Progress!

i just put my real name #ChasingUFOs. Something nice and short. Mind as well have my name broadcasted to the entire Universe. It's a good way to "Live Forever", since if anything does receive the transmission i will be long dead.
