And regarding wormholes yes, but given the amount of energy needed to keep a wormhole opened enough and long enough to let a spaceship go through it it seems highly improbable that any form of intelligence could use them. But then it assumes that those alien intelligence would have to be made of atoms and obey quantum mechanics ect. Maybe they could be made of something else we couldn t even see...
so you're admitting it's still possible
I totally believe there are other forms of intelligence in the universe, it s size and number of galaxies/stars/planets is limitless.
There are stuff like antimateria and other such things that are still pretty much unknown. The universe as we know it, driven by general physics laws and quantum mechanics on another scale probably has other twists that could never be understood by our human minds.
Little green humanoids, big white scandinavians, that travelled for millions of lightyears to collaborate with the us government (please no canadians!) is just a ridiculous story.. And these guys would be in a secret base in the middle of the desert hidden since decades.. Lol
Well the US government is pretty damn crappy when you see how bad they ve been exploiting alien knowledge to get mindblowing technological advantages on the rest of the world. Imagine you arrive on earth and visit the first homo sapiens. How cool it would be to teach them a few things, like the wheel, the bow and arrow, fire domestication, agriculture, animal farming ect ect..
You might answer that the huge technological improvements during the 20th century are in big part due to some aliens hidden in nevada..
There are problems with your assumptions here.
- You are assuming aliens think the same way as humans. So judging that it's ridiculous for aliens to cooperate with humans might not be a great idea. You are judging according to human standards, which might not be applicable.
- Also it would not be unique for a government to hide secrets for decades, nor multiple governments simultaneously. Governments have held secrets towards their populus all throughout history.
- and I assume in your first paragraph that you actually mean that the universe could never be understood by 1 human being. The way civilization currently works, we might be able to discover a whole lot given enough time. Humans learn as a society and develop as a society. So it has to be taken into regard that humans make use of the collective mind, just as animal heards do in nature.
