Ever looked at the sky and thought if there exists more than one planet in the galaxy that bears life? Depending on how your life is going, you will either be frightened or you will outright be excited. Or if you are a regular person with a dead-end job, you will wish something changes on this piece of rock floating in space, now ruled by corporate overlords.
Whatever is the case, you will be glad to know that the thought of aliens existing somewhere far away in the galaxy is not an uncommon notion. In fact, if anything, great visionaries have always predicted that there does exist a life somewhere far away in galaxies. Of course, some of us fantasize about mingling with alien life. Maybe you have given up on humanity in hopes of finding a love interest but hey, the idea of an alien crush may suit you. Or perhaps we could usher in a new age like either Star Trek or Star Wars. (Most probably, it will be Star Trek since the ‘Force’ hasn’t been discovered yet).
But do you know that there can be another scenario? We might enter a new World War Z era… Because maybe our alien overlords wouldn’t deem us worthy of intermingling (there goes your chance of finding love) or they wouldn’t want to see us as equals. What could happen then?!
The scenario was predicted by Stephan Hawking who believed in the possibility of an advanced alien life somewhere far away. Stephen had warned scientists to not send the coordinates of the earth to outer space. The scientists did that in hopes of finding alien life.
Even if an alien civilization exists, it is highly unlikely they will be of the same advanced level as we are. Stephen Hawking had said that interaction between differently advanced species never ends well for the less advanced ones.
But these are human scientists we are talking about. The kind that follows the religion of science fervently. They are ignoring all the warnings of Stephen Hawking and well, the results could either be exciting or they could be outright disastrous.
