Re: Reason to suspect why ET signatures are not seen Great video! The Plasma Cosmologists will luv it!
It's really rich that those engaged in the search for "Dark Energy" found them.
These dark galaxies can only result from the idea of plasma energising stars and galaxies with electric current. The power has been shut off. If stars and galaxies were the result of gravity-only and nuclear fusion within stars, these galaxies wouldn't be possible.
So, these 'dark' galaxies can only be the result of having fallen out of the grand circuit of energy related to galactic electric currents. They are relatively near to us, so it's doubtful that they are all just burned out stars.
P.S. Can you imagine what we'll discover once we get there? Advanced technological cultures that just had to abandon their home worlds and become spacefarers?
Re: Reason to suspect why ET signatures are not seen Thanks. I am kind of done myself with space people since I have become more concerned with human survival, and especially American survival. Somehow plasma physics must be goosed up to really contribute in the way we all would like it to. Some true shortcut that makes the engineering easier. For fusion we are waiting forever, and might even achieve it this century, but for commercial fusion? Meanwhile the thugs are thugging and so forth. Think in terms of energy for the US states as opposed to the Peoples Republic.
Re: Reason to suspect why ET signatures are not seen We've approved of the small most modern, really safe nukes! They truly be on the way now!
That's sadly not as fast as I'd like it, but it will mean some Repub run States will have good, reliable power. I'm really happy about it.
And our power situation is still good as we wait. Now, should our far lefty groups get more help from the ChiComs, or from far-lefty South American groups that can link up with groups like MS 13, who have tendrils all over the US, now...
Then they could rip up our pipeline distribution system, and start blowing up tanker trucks and Train Cars filled with nat gas.
That would be such a massive ramp up, that I think we'd see other things first. Like the current rioting going up several notches, and many more direct attacks on Cops all over.
Re: Reason to suspect why ET signatures are not seen
but this does not make it, practically important.
It makes it practically important if we can find a way to get out there among the stars. It means that the entire universe is real-estate for the taking. With self-replicating, self-maintaining machinery, every man can have his own galaxy. That is probably a meaningless idea, since very few people seek that level of solitude or could really even grasp it, but it has a certain appeal.
Re: Reason to suspect why ET signatures are not seen Understood, but if its all empty, unless we can groove on some reliable engineering, and given the weakness of US society today, due to one party, I should think seeking the galaxy is a far away matter, indeed, let alone the solar system. Much of this seemingly is the ability to produce sufficient energy. Related is the ability to sustain individual biological lives across the comparatively short distances from star to star.
The sophistication of creating habitats in the solar system could be a sort of thing where the first people at Proxima will be dilettantes, of their era, needing to be at the height of fashion and settling the first new Star!
