The reason SETI can't find a signal.
There is a threat out there, so great, so terrible that all advanced civilizations in the galaxy who reached the technological level required for interstellar travel returned to their planets as soon as they discovered this threat.

They closed all communications and broadcasts and their planets "went dark", no signal, no trace.

So the threat wouldn't notice their existence... for it is something that must roam the galaxy searching... Stephen Hawking wasn't making this shit up.

There is only one signal in this galaxy for SETI to find.
It is the signal from those vast pan galactic trawler ships, broadcasting a greeting for the unwary to answer.

And the ships listen... for some fledgling civilisation, some cosmic lamb in the corner of the slaughterhouse, bleating loudly, sending out signals to the butcher... "Here I am."
damned

And now, they approach, using the gravity well of our own star as a gateway... the ships arrive one by one, spheres, the size of planets hanging in Sols halo, waiting patiently, savouring the fresh, youthful cornucopia of life, resources an technology that is our little planet.

They hunger for the milk of our mother Earth, they devoured their own long ago.

Thanks for reading.

That's totally unfair.
It's not all BS... I am smoking a bong.

However I am impressed by your detective kills, only a mind with the deductive reasoning of Holmes himself could have detected anything amiss in the OP.
Well done sir, I'm certain you'll get a medal for this.

Me too ... he has layed out all the basics for a sci-fi novel ... the basic plot is there ... all needed now is to give it characters, describe the scenes and stuff, give it life.

Oh take the rod outta your ass ffs, you're obviously just in a prissy mood hmm?
The whole damn world is full of shit today!
Right? Right? ..I know I'm right, crankypants.

Look... you failed really hard, let me show you how.
Collier is a true believer who says they interact with us all the time... but you say he is full of shit.

SETI say they're not here but we are looking and you say they are also full of shit...

I write post something leaning towards "maybe we shouldn't broadcast our presence so much" and you say I am full of shit.

In the context of the OP there isn't really any credible fourth position that you can be holding from which to decry the other 3 as "shit", therefore we are forced to conclude that the only one here who is full of shit monsieur, is you.

It's going to be called 'Silent Runners'.

The basic plot is that we are galvanised into action, we decide we cannot face these planet killers alone, in an unprecedented global effort we finally get an encoded message past the enemy and make contact with another race... like all the others, a secretive race who have become obsessed with stealth and secrecy from millenia of hiding from the Threat.

They are the only other race in the galaxy who have the technology to travel in space and remain hidden from the insatiable hunger of the threat.
They serve as couriers between other silent worlds, and humanity learns that there really is a great galactic network of civilisations, one that is hidden from sight, hidden from the threat.

Shocked at being contacted by humanity (a race known to the other civilisations and avoided because we are 'too loud.') initial refusal from the secretive 'Silent Runners' turns to grudging assistance and finally friendship (maybe a human/alien romance subplot even.)

In the end these two civilizations, ours and the 'Runners' work together to unite all the reclusive races of the galaxy against the Threat... humanity becomes the herald of a golden age of galactic civilisation... The End.

 Quoting: Lucky Charms

The Threat is greed. The mother ship is the White house and the fleet isall corporations tied to it. Space Travel has no monetary benefit as of now to humans. SETI sends a signal back but never receives a reply, it drifts deeper and deeper into space, lost without a leash, abandoned without an owner. Tossed to the side as it reaches depths of space no manned craft could ever travel to so it could mine the sources dry.

We see scifi horror movies of aliens going from planet to planet to suck it dry. Those aliens.... They are future humans... Their motive? Its not survival, rather its wealth.

BTW, remember to check out tonight's C2C if u really interested in searching for ET





Search for ET Life
Date:
05-04-10

Host:
George Noory

Guests:
Paul Davies



Acclaimed physicist and cosmologist Paul Davies will discuss why he believes that SETI's search for narrow-band radio signals from planets around other stars needs to be broadened to look for other possible signs of ET life.

Re: The reason SETI can't find a signal.
I thought SETI can't find a signal because they are looking for EM waves that are in the high gigahertz range. which we could reason that if ET was listening to us, they would send a signal that matched our own that we send out, which are EM waves in the megahertz ranges...

I tell you a secret: All galactic civilisations use SUBSPACE COMMUNICATION (faster than light); they use the Ether/Astral plane for travel and communication! (not the old fashioned 3D plane with radio waves)

Also, Earth is the most primitive planet in the galaxy, more like a kindergarten; the big guys out there don't use children's toys! (rockets, radios etc.)

Please educate yourself about galactic technology:

Re: The reason SETI can't find a signal.
That threat is already here OP. It has been here for a really looooooooooooong time. Read mythology like you're reading sci-fi and you will see wars made for dominion over this slave/farm world.

This sector of the galaxy is so polarised towards negativity, I'm sure Earth is not the only enslaved world around.
