Hopscotching with Aliens? — 5 Comments

  1. Or perhaps we have no reference systems in common, making meaningful communication next to impossible.

    I recall a perfectly marvelous science fiction story written way back in 1934 – A Martian Odyssey by Stanley G. Weinbaum. The hero of that short story is lost on Mars, and encounters a whole series of intelligent beings, but doesn’t manage to communicate with any of them. And it wasn’t a matter of not knowing their languages, but rather of their very thought processes being so.. well, alien that there was no possibility of mutual understanding.

  2. More advanced than earth populations should statistically exist. Perhaps they are removed from our physical universe after traversing some intelligence and/or spiritual threshold. That would be biblical.
