Loeb: 'aliens might be able to create new universes in a lab'

The Harvard astronomer believes that sufficiently advanced extraterrestrials could achieve almost anything.
Loeb, who recently made headlines following his discovery of mysterious spherules on the ocean floor that he believes were part of an artificially constructed meteorite, detailed his own views on the possibilities of alien life during an interview on Fox News.

Of particular interest was his view that an advanced alien civilization might have mastered the ability to create new universes in a laboratory and that our universe may have even come about this way.

"A very advanced scientific civilization is a good approximation to God," he said.
"Imagine a cave dweller visiting New York City and seeing all the gadgets in technology in terms of the lights appearing as a miracle to the cave dweller."

Also during the interview, Loeb noted that it is "arrogant of us to think that we are alone" considering the "tens of billions of planets in the Milky Way galaxy alone and hundreds of billions of galaxies like the Milky Way in the observable volume of the universe."

"Perhaps noticing a neighbor will be a wake-up call that will bring us together, speaking of humanity as a whole," he said.

"There might be many more neighbors that are far more accomplished than we are, and we can learn from them. So my hope is that it will bring humanity to a better place in the long term future."

While I appreciate the idea of thinking outside of the box I think there is a point that it just becomes silly. When we don't even know if 'aliens' exist it is pointless to speculate on what they are or are not capable of doing.  It is super easy to play that game. Example, "Aliens may be capable of both having their cake and eating it too".

What I don't appreciate is Loeb's hypocrisy. In an interview (which is now gone from YouTube) he scolded other scientists for not following the scientific method claiming that he alone was using it. A few minutes later when he started rambling about that asteroid the interviewer pointed out that none of his conclusions were based on anything scientific. Loeb responded that you don't have to use the scientific method if a conclusion makes sense. He showed zero self-awareness.

Darn right. Loeb does not have a lot of admirers in the scientific community right about now. Maybe just he has a big ego and is enjoying the notoriety.

He is an attention seeker after the Benjamins.

With just as much certainty I can claim we might be living in the brain of another creature

Considering how neuronlike the universe around us is looking I made this speculation as well. Can we nominate iAlrakis as the new random musing professional? It sounded more reasonable than the other guy.

No, he doesn't. I think Loeb is a sensationalist, buffing his brand. He does however have some materials that are not from this solar system. Big deal! Space junk, iz'all
