In the 1950s, with the help of science and technology, human beings finally realized their dream of flying to the sky and walked out of the earth. When we walk out of the earth, we really understand the vastness of the universe and the smallness of the earth.
When we realize the vastness of the universe, thinking about extraterrestrial civilization has become a hot topic. In the view of scientists, there are at least 100 billion stars and hundreds of billions of earth like planets in a small galaxy. Within the 93 billion year observable range, there are at least trillions of large galaxies like the Milky way, and the number of earth like planets is too many to be counted.
In such a large base, there is no doubt about the existence of alien civilization. So soon after human beings stepped out of the earth, we began the great extraterrestrial civilization search project. By launching the Voyager probe, scientists actively send human civilization signals to the depths of the sky, and constantly search for possible alien civilization signals in the universe through radio telescopes.
Through these ways, human beings have been searching for extraterrestrial civilization for more than half a century, but up to now, we still haven’t found anything. Let alone seeing alien civilizations, we have not found any possible traces of their existence.
With the rapid development of human science and technology, the understanding of the universe is constantly improving. Scientists have higher and higher expectations for finding alien civilization. For human beings unable to find alien civilization, scientists have also given a variety of conjectures. The most reliable reason is that distance and speed limit us.
We all know that the universe is so vast that we can’t imagine it. The distance of the universe is based on light years, and the speed of the universe is based on the speed of light. The speed of light is very fast in our eyes, but it is only tortoise speed in the universe. To break through the speed of light, we need to apply the space-time distortion in general relativity.
We need to understand that the speed limit of an object is the speed of light, and the speed of a mass object can only be infinitely close to the speed of light. Even so, the speed of light is not impossible to break through, but the object itself is unable to break through, and needs to be applied to the distortion of space. Space time can be distorted is a theory confirmed by science. As long as we can twist the space around the spaceship, space can theoretically take the spaceship to fly faster than light.
After breaking through the speed of light, we will be able to carry out primary interstellar navigation. At that time, we will be able to search within the Milky way. We believe that we will find many living planets and alien civilizations. So there is a question: what will we do if we find a lower civilization planet in the interstellar voyage?
There are countless intelligent civilizations in the universe, and the universe has a history of 13.8 billion years. The civilizations born in such a long time must have their own sequence. Civilizations born earlier than human beings may be much stronger than us, while civilizations born later than human beings may not be as advanced as us, or even in a very primitive stage of evolution.
Human beings were also primitive Homo sapiens tens of thousands of years ago, and they have not really evolved into modern humans. We have become an interstellar civilization. When we sail between the stars, we will inevitably find some relatively primitive lower civilization planets. What kind of attitude will we show at this time, to plunder or to get along with each other?
Maybe many people will say that the lower civilizations are so primitive and the aborigines are so stupid. Do we still plunder them? Is that what people do? Therefore, we should get along well with these low-level intelligent life. So is that possible? The possibility naturally exists, but the probability is not high.
Is there absolute fairness and peace within human beings? I believe everyone knows that this is impossible. Since ancient times, wars within human beings have never really stopped. Even in the era of modern peace, small-scale conflicts and wars often occur. The 5000 year history of human civilization is actually a history of war. It can be seen that human beings are not very kind and peaceful civilizations.
There are war factors and conquest factors in human nature. The strong bully the weak and the weak have no diplomacy. This is an eternal truth. Human beings and alien civilizations are two completely different races. If they are civilizations with equal scientific and technological strength, they may be able to live in peace on the same footing.
However, if there is a big difference between the two civilizations, the possibility of equality will be very small. We have met a lower civilization. These aborigines will not be placed on equal status in the eyes of human beings. We will show a high attitude. In the eyes of the lower civilization, human beings fall from the sky, just like the gods, and they are more afraid of us.
Of course, the possibility of interstellar war between human beings and lower civilizations will be very small. The reason is that we do not need to take the initiative to colonize, and lower civilizations will automatically come and worship human beings as gods. Do we still need to start a war at this time? Of course, we don’t need to. As long as we show a little bit of power (in the eyes of the aborigines, it’s divine power), they will listen to the human.
If human beings find that there are valuable resources we need on this lower civilization planet, we will colonize the planet and exploit resources, and then let the indigenous people of the planet exploit resources for free. In the eyes of these lower civilizations, it’s an honor to serve gods like human beings.
When we finish mining the precious resources of this planet, we will not stay on this planet. Then we will leave this planet by spaceship and continue our star trek to find other resource planets. Before humans leave, we may tell these aborigines that we will come back some time in the future.
After human beings leave, the aborigines of lower civilization will record the human gods’ visit to the planet by carving and other means for future generations to remember. However, we understand that what mankind said to the lower civilization before leaving is just a kind of comfort. We know that the universe is vast and vast. After leaving this planet, the future may never come back.
This is the most reliable way to deal with the low civilization planets discovered in the star trek. Of course, this is on the premise that there are important resources needed by human beings on this planet. If this planet is very poor and has no useful resources, then we may not contact with lower civilizations, because in our view, it is totally meaningless.
This is how humans deal with lower civilization planets. When alien civilizations, which are also much higher than human civilization, make interstellar voyages, they may find that the earth and humans may also adopt this way. In fact, some myths and legends in the ancient times of the earth may be that the alien civilization came to the earth for a period of time. Ancient people thought that it was a God in the sky. They recorded some of their deeds and later adapted them into myths and legends.
There are also some magnificent ancient buildings on the earth, such as the pyramids in Egypt, which were difficult to build in the ancient Egyptians more than 4000 years ago. Some scientists speculate that the Egyptian pyramids may have been built with the help of alien civilization. If this guess is correct, a group of aliens came to the earth in ancient Egypt 4000 years ago and stayed in Egypt for a period of time.
Of course, all this is just a conjecture at present. Human beings are far from the real realization of interstellar navigation, and it will take a very long time to develop. It may be thousands or even tens of thousands of years before we can explore the entire galaxy.
