Artificial Intelligent "aliens" -- I'm not alone in believing that

  • AI aliens make much more sense. Although, who´s to say that "real" aliens couldn´t be almost immortal and travel around the galaxy -- but not by thousands as UFO reports would have us believe.
    I know I´ve speculated that maybe UFOs are AI probes gone mad after too many replications but there could be a simpler explanation (if we assume that it´s really AI probes we´re dealing with). Maybe aliens who built them have (had) motives that we as humans just can´t understand. If it´s logical for them to let these probes observe and interact with us for a thousands of years? Or make contact and deliver obscure messages? Man is not the measure of all things, certainly.
    But why we´ve never found a broken AI probe (or have we? I´m not gonna mention any of these "crashed ufo" stories)? OK, maybe they have a self-destruct mechanism, still...

  • AI probes can't crash, Jerry...

    They are made/replicated by "advanced" machines devoid of error or malfunction, yes?

  • Are you saying these AI machines are completely foolproof? Can anything be devoid of error when we´re talking of thousands, maybe millions of years?
    No, really, I think I agree with you. It would be strange if AI/ET probes would crash and leave us something to find. Even if the worst happened and the probe malfunctioned, couldn´t contact other probes and its nanobots or whatever just couldn´t repair it, I think they´d really have that self-destruct program or something.

  • I was being a bit facetious Jerry, but I imagine a million year old "species" of AI machines would have solved any malfunction aspects of their creations -- of 'themselves."

    But even if one ended up on the ground here, would we be able to discern it as a thinking machine or see it as just one more piece of scrap discarded by some sloppy humans?

  • Hey,
    "would we be able to discern it as a thinking machine or see it as just one more piece of scrap discarded by some sloppy humans?"
    I think that´s a great point. Yes, how we should know that some weird stuff somewhere is the remains of an alien probe and not just junk? We presume that the alien technology looks like our technology but there´s no reason to think that. At least they could camouflage their probes to resemble our flora or something. And our notion of intelligence is based on ourselves, there probably are very different views if there are aliens.

  • Seth Shostak, believes Aliens MIGHT be out there, which is why, he is looking for them, out there, but he does not believe, they are down here on earth. As for the TV. conversation taken seriously, on ET/UFO The body-language was a joke!? This makes the conversation, not so impressive, to the topic in discussion.

    If Seth, believes that ET/UFO might be out there, then in my opinion, he needs to consider, they could be down here as well. Why would we say this?...

    Hi, Jerry, good to see you back... Jerry commented awhile back: "How would ET ever find us here on earth?"... The answer to this, is straight to the point...

    Earth has a huge "electronic mouth piece".. TV. Radios, Radar, Satellites everywhere, Probes & what have you?

    This must be, to the ETs, like a homing-signal to earth. Of cause they know where we are. If you consider they are out there, then you need to consider they're down here too. Seth has still to catch up with this, because the SETI Institute is a contributor, of the signals going out from Earth..................

  • Dammit, Daniel....

    We all agree that life is (or may be) abundant in the vast Universe (seen and unseen).

    But if you'd just look at the photos or night sky, you'd see that Earth is a pipsqueak in context of possible planets housing advanced or sentient species, and not a draw for advanced beings, in the numbers indicated by UFO reports over the years and even now.

    No advanced, intelligent species would be spending the time here that you seem inclined to accept.

    Yes, it's possible but improbable.

    "Hi, Jerry, good to see you back... "
    Thanks! I just had a flu and I really just slept and read some books but was too tired to write anything.
    "Earth has a huge "electronic mouth piece".. TV. Radios, Radar, Satellites everywhere, Probes & what have you?"
    Yes, true, but you must remember that these move "only" at the speed of light, so our first radio programs have travelled about a hundred light-years and that´s not much considering the size of the galaxy....

  • Rich,

    Sometimes when I watch the photos of the deep sky, the galaxies and galaxy clusters I feel something like a cosmic agoraphobia. I mean it would be horrible to be there, in the dark space between the galaxies, just floating, and the darkness and the cosmic sights....scary, seriously.
    But yes, what the hell those aliens would be doing here?
    I´d like to know what´s the explanation of UFOs 50 years from now. Probably not aliens.
