  1. Surely that could only benefit communication, which is notoriously difficult to understand (imagine trying to decode a radio message from a Chinese speaker, when you don't speak Chinese.); and there's no reason to believe actual travel is possible. So how, even if the hypothesis is correct, does it answer the OP? Why include them? What makes you think the initial conditions match the present?
  2. I can't believe I have to explain further, what would you deduce from >< % x? What number does a knot in a string mean to an ancient South American?
  3. What if their symbol + actually meant - etc... how common could the languge be? I can communicate, basically, with a Chinese person (from 10 thousand years ago) because we both get hungry and sate it in the same way, so my symbol for eating, hand to mouth, me chewing and then rubbing my tummy and making a satisfied face, is the same as his symbol for eating when hungry. The results from a probe that 'we' won't receive???
  4. What's the point of science, if you assume you know the answers?
  5. What about my posts makes you think that I think 'it' exists? When I said god is a teacher, more acurately would read, god is a teaching aid. Of course you have to trust/believe your human teacher, until such time as you understand the lesson he/she is teaching and why; then you'll be qualified to judge his/her method's. Just a final FYI learning is never childish.
  6. Why would you believe that? We think we know how a dog thinks, it's a fellow mammal after all, but what would you say when it asks "smell that, nudge nudge wink wink"?
  7. To them (and us) they wouldn't know the difference, it would be like trying to have a conversation with an ant; not because they/us are better, but because such a conversation would be impossible to comprehend, for both...
  8. When I started to play strike force, back in the day, I was playing on a mates account; so, effectively, a noob playing as a pro, but killing the player's that assumed my blindly running around like a headless chicken, was some sort of tactic. When I bought the game and needed a name of my own, my mate suggested dimreepr, and since it seems to be unique on the tinterweb; I use it for everything...
  9. If you want to know what's outside the box, you have to know what's inside it; a good teacher knows that not all his student's are capable of thinking beyond their teachings, so they make sure that all are content with what they've learned; make up your own mind reminds me of the trope, fighting cancer is heroic; like we have a choice.
  10. It's not that simple, God is a teacher and teacher's have to be trusted, if one wants to learn their lesson's. A good teacher tells believable lies, so that even the slowest among us can catch up; it's very imaginative and way more than a figment...
  11. Congratulations, there's nothing like the sweet smell of curiosity, enjoy it while it lasts; because no matter what measures you employ, you can't protect yourself from the future... Happy learning 🤞 🖖
  12. Yes, we are... But when it does, there's a chance to learn... 😉
  13. How would that indicate the moment of conscious thought?
  14. You're not thinking past our cultural bias, specifically the assumption that we are seperate from nature, that we're special and above other animals because we're not really an animal; it's the cancer that's eating away at our society. Ancient human's didn't suffer from this bias, they lived in harmony with nature because they couldn't ignore it, like we do; we also forget that they were just as cleaver as we are, they were just a little bit wiser. Back to the topic: Does the fact that we are unconsciously feeding our own cancer, mean that the ancient humans were more conscious than us?
  15. My name is Dave... 😉
  16. It was Dave, wasn't it???
  17. Yes, of course; consciousness exists and life exists; it doesn't matter how tight the Venn diagram is, it's never absolute... At some point the spectrum will draw a line, whatever the question... Why?
