They are going to get Half life 3 soon.
And The Last Guardian.
But not Shenmue 3
i wonder if creating creative machines will inevitably lead all civilizations to augment themselves in identical fashion, to the point where we will meet each other and look indistinguishable
if there is an objective perfect way to do a thing, when we reach technological singularity, we will look the same as our galactic neighbors would
i wonder if there have been infinite universes before the big bang, and others have spent their time outside of whatever unimaginable boundaries bind us to this world, just waiting for our ancestors to join them one day
We’ll find out very soon what Mortality actually means. Aliens who are advanced enough for interstellar travel would most likely have no fear of the unknown, and seeing us as “primitive” as we are, would give them no cause for pursuing any sort of friendship. Most likely, they will come to harvest. Best case scenario, they come, and we get transplanted to another planet or a ship. Worst case scenario, extermination, and we’re the ants. A more relatable example would be human interactions with lesser species, we go in and we dominate the entire area, displacing those species with very little if any care. Advanced alien species would take on the same role as us.
I don’t know – they could very well be like us, curious about this new species, and start off with good intentions. But then as they realise we’re sitting on resources, or if we started exploring their planet too, they’d start to get hostile. Yes I’m talking US-war-on-oil style aliens.
You reap what you sow. That’s my response.
Heres how i see it if aliens did come visit us and they see what we do to each other and what we fight each other over i doubt they would find us intelligent and even if they did come down i can assure you that the religious would flip their shit and the rednecks would try to shoot it and even more so i wouldnt be suprised if the military tried to attack it because we’re assholes
(and movies where we somehow beat an intelligent alien lifeform are insanely stupid if they had the technology for inter steller flight our guns would be like throwing pebbles at a concrete wall)
Like I said: Extermination, and we’re the ants. 😛 ID4 would be all too real then. XD
Can’t wait for Independence Day 2 btw. *Deep guttural Squee* XD
