What would be the most terrifying message we could receive from ET ?

lol from the article:

"You are the last. Be better than us."

that is for sure the scariest. That was the discussion in the 60s/70s right? If there ever has been a civilisation that made it through the atomic age?

But I mean ET per se isn't the 'scariest' type of alien that could contact us. Because ET would mean we are at least both civilisations out of the 'known 5%' of the universe. Conventional warfare might be of use against that.

What if it is something we can't even perceive or detect with our technology? <= that is much scarier

 

But I mean on the other hand if that^ is true every communication would be an olive branch, right? They could roll over us without us even noticing, if they contact us that'd mean we don't have to worry that much no matter how 'scary' the message.

Because there are even a lot of us humans who think humanity needs a good enema to flush out the ... waste. So even something ultra-Karen like 'Get your mess in order this instant because we've had it' would in a weird way be a message of hope.

Thing is, something not really explored in Star Trek, is that there would be a sizeable portion of the population offering themselves to be assimilated.

Scientists have been listening out for alien messages for years, but perhaps we'd be better off not receiving anything at all.

The worse message may be something like:
You are the chosen nation...

"We are of the Hyperspace Construction LLC. Here to begin work on the Interstellar Hyperspace bypass for this sector. Your planet must be removed. Plans of which have been on public display in Galactic Federation Community offices in Alpha Centare the past 20,000 years. You could have formally protested them then!! I'm just a construction Forman, and we're on union time!" :)

This is Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz of the Galactic Hyperspace Planning Council,” the voice continued. “As you will no doubt be aware, the plans for development of the outlying regions of the Galaxy require the building of a hyperspatial express route through your star system, and regrettably your planet is one of those scheduled for demolition. The process will take slightly less than two of your Earth minutes. Thank you.

― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

But really....

I think a terrifying ironic message would be some version of the end of planet of the apes with hestons melt down about what humans did to earth.

there is nothing wrong with your
television set do not attempt to adjust
the picture we are controlling
transmission we will control the
horizontal we will control the vertical
we can change the focus to a soft blur
or sharpen it to Crystal Clarity for the
next hour sit quietly and we will
control all that you see and hear you
are about to participate in a great
adventure you are about to experience
the awe and mystery which reaches from
the inner mind to the outer
limits
