I believe that the great filter is an attitude filter. With our current attitude the great filter is in front of us. If you see the first 15 minutes of the movie "2001 - A space odyssey" you will see that from the dawn of humanity until now we are just apes fighting for the same resources with an "I am invincible and I deserve to rule the planet" attitude. There is the drake equation (see the thread "If we cannot speak to friends and neighbours then let's talk to aliens" - https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...urs-directly-then-lets-talk-to-aliens.115083/ ). The factor L in this equation indicates that if an alien species lives long to reach the level of interstellar travel it will be a wise one and not hostile at all. That is because it will have passed the great attitude filter and that it respects 3 laws of survival:Hopefully not....
I can't see why not; we're an excellent source of protein. (Assuming that it's a good thing for alien lifeforms, naturally.)If I was another form of intelligent life, I wouldn't come anywhere near us. We cant even solve starvation on a planet teaming with life and resources.
spoken like a True MartianHopefully not....
Not unless you're living backwards "Through the Looking Glass"my dream was to be M&M for an alien species.
“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?”

Absolutely true for most of the cases. The thing is that right now the measurements give us 20 molecules per million while all the simpler explanations (at least that we know of) give us a much lower value as a result. What ever the answer is (life or a procedure we do now know that creates phosphine) it will be a new one for us.Evidently ->
"the simplest explanation is most likely the right one".
There are laws for the space that were created when the space race begun. The thing is that it is in the human nature that wherever there is a law, one can find out a way out of it.I hope we never find any life in the outer space, so we don't mess with their environment or worst, exterminate them.
Not far from the truth. Our universe colleague.Edit - If in your avatar is exactly your photo then I suppose you worry about your civilization being threaten by ours
