I would like to say hello to all of ya out there, I am an open minded Aeronautical Engineer with an interest for all the unexplained things out there. I am a friend of going out there and to explore all those wonderful things out there way beyond of the confines of our solar-system. New Propulsion systems and the search for extraterrestrial civilizations with large energy supplies are my passion. I believe it is a good idea to take metters in our own hands and make it happen rather to wait for some government disclosure on aliens. Do not get me wrong from what I have learned it is more than likely that our gov is in contact with ETI and perhaps even more. I hope to find like minded people and have a fun time .
[offtopic]We motivate the ^G infrared search for extraterrestrial civilizations with large energy supplies. We discuss some philosophical difficulties of SETI, and how communication SETI circumvents them. We review "Dysonian SETI", the search for artifacts of alien civilizations, and find that it is highly complementary to traditional communication SETI; the two together might succeed where either one, alone, has not. We discuss the argument of Hart (1975) that spacefaring life in the Milky Way should be either galaxy-spanning or non-existent, and examine a portion of his argument that we dub the "monocultural fallacy". We discuss some rebuttals to Hart that invoke sustainability and predict long Galaxy colonization timescales. We find that the maximum Galaxy colonization timescale is actually much shorter than previous work has found (<109 yr), and that many "sustainability" counter-arguments to Hart's thesis suffer from the monocultural fallacy. We extend Hart's argument to alien energy supplies, and argue that detectably large energy supplies can plausibly be expected to exist because life has potential for exponential growth until checked by resource or other limitations, and intelligence implies the ability to overcome such limitations. As such, if Hart's thesis is correct then searches for large alien civilizations in other galaxies may be fruitful; if it is incorrect, then searches for civilizations within the Milky Way are more likely to succeed than Hart argued. We review some past Dysonian SETI efforts, and discuss the promise of new mid-infrared surveys, such as that of WISE.[/offtopic]
Welcome to the site. Can I ask what is your background as an Aeronautical Engineer? I think you might find some like minded individuals, at least one, with a similar career that I can think of.
