People have been asking for some time just why extra terrestrials have yet to contact us. After getting more than enough grief trying to load FaceBook (go ahead, you try), I can only conclude that they aren't going to because they can't. Not really. Anybody wanting to contact us is going to want to make contact with us as a group, and not any particular sub-group. But how are they going to do that when our communication system in the form of the Internet is so fucked? I mean, the first thing they would need to do is to repair the Internet, and at the moment they just may not have the resources. Or they may simply not have the motivation.
I mean, why would they? Are we really worth the time? How would they benefit from contact with us? Far as I can see, we are doing a bang up job discouraging them from making contact. It comes down to this, our software is royally fucked. It is a cobbled together miss with more mistakes than an Alan Moore first draft, with no real editing and no real proof reading. The only thing more complicated is the U.S. Tax Code, with the only difference between the two is that the Tax Code is deliberate.
Come the Singularity (which see) we will have entities who will need well written and well edited code. It will be a matter of survival for them. Once they're online sloppy coding may well become a death penalty offense. And no appeal.
Our mistakes will be corrected. Not for our sakes, for theirs. And we will have no choice in the matter. We're just not ready for it. Revolution is coming, and we may not be leading it.
