In the vast and infinite universe, human is the only (now known) intelligent life in the solar system, is a special existence. It took only 100000 years for apes to evolve into intelligent life. Dinosaurs that lived on the earth for more than 200 million years eventually died out due to natural disasters and did not evolve into intelligent life.
It can be seen that the birth and formation of intelligent life is a special process. In order to measure the level of our civilization, scientists put forward the concept of grading the civilization of the universe.
Although this classification method is not very realistic, Soviet astronomer Nikolay kardashov also put forward this theory and defined the civilization level of the universe by kardashov index.
Caldaschov index is a method of grading civilization by measuring the energy utilization rate, and Nikolai caldaschov believes that the progress of civilization will increase with the improvement of energy.
According to scientists, the universe will be divided into seven levels. So we will be curious, what level of human civilization will be divided into?
Although we have lived on the earth for a long time, we have become the overlord of the earth, and through a short period of time, we have rapidly developed our science and technology, introduced and invented many high technologies.
But you know what? The level of human civilization is only 0.7. That is to say, even the lowest level 1 civilization has not been reached. How powerful is the highest level 7 civilization in the universe? What is the gap between mankind and the most advanced civilization?
Some scientists speculate that the highest civilizations in the universe, the most powerful, are unmatched, and that they may no longer need the food chain. Even our current way of thinking and science and technology are not worth mentioning.
They can easily cross the stars, make Star Trek, or create a larger universe. It’s always their ability that we can’t imagine.
What about us? When can we cross the threshold of level 1 civilization? As we all know, the gap between civilizations in the universe is not between 1 and 2, but between 0 and 1.
We all know that it’s easy to get more from something, but it’s a problem to get more from nothing. There will be a lot of new knowledge that we have never been involved in.
If human civilization is to evolve from level 0.7 to level 1, it will be equivalent to the evolution from ancient times to modern times. Let alone the problem of time, because evolution itself is a special process. Who can guarantee that the same evolutionary effect will be achieved at the same time?
So far, human probes have not been able to leave the solar system. If the civilization level of human beings evolves to level 1, then the probe can travel freely in the solar system. It can not only develop and utilize the resources of other planets, but also make other planets become another livable planet.
Perhaps the most advanced civilization is the creator of the universe, a pair of invisible hands behind all our galaxies. We’ve set our planet’s trajectory early, or maybe they’ve set the laws of nature.
However, it will take a long time and unremitting efforts for human beings to reach the highest level 7 civilization. In this process, there are still many uncertain factors, such as whether human beings will still exist on the earth in the long future? No one can predict this.
Maybe there are other creatures in the universe, but it’s hard to predict how high their civilization level is, how advanced their technology is, and how powerful their weapons are. After all, human beings have not yet been able to leave the solar system, let alone explore the universe beyond the Milky way.
What do you think of that? Do you think there are advanced civilizations in the universe? Welcome to leave your opinion in the comment area!
