“… because there’s bugger all down here on Earth.”

Wonderful thing, digital communication. Nice compact data streams, zillions of channels, etc etc – and no signals which will leak into space. Yep – the more our telecommunications advance, the more invisible we become to our Exosolar Brethren – that is the theory according to a new paper by the head of SETI.

Hence, it is not the fact that we have not detected aliens because they have inferior technology, but because they are technologically superior! Note however, that it is the head of SETI that is suggesting this – he is clearly giving himself an escape route as to why his organisation is not coming up with the goods.

Who knows? These alien hunters might be coming round to my ideas about searching for aliens through advanced consciousness (as opposed to advanced technology) sooner than I had anticipated!
