Is there alien life out there? It would seem small-minded to think not. Whether these are fully functional civilizations or just isolated forms of bacteria, it would still be a discovery as important as any made involving this planet’s life sources, at least to our life-spoiled generation. But it’s an entirely different thing to assume that aliens had something to do with the life on Earth. Pyramids, Easter Island, and Stonehenge? Those were all human works. But what about humans the themselves?
The idea that our own genetic code may be embedded with alien intelligence is a theory being lobbed awkwardly into the stratosphere by Vladimir I. shCherbak of al-Farabi Kazakh National University of Kazakhstan and Maxim A Makukov from the Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute, who presented their thoughts to the journal Icarus. The call their idea “biological SETI,” hypothesizing a mathematical code within our DNA that Darwin’s evolutionary theories don’t account for. Instead of looking out, like the actual SETI program does, we should be looking inwards. Does anyone else think these guys just watched Prometheus a bunch of times on mushrooms? The researchers write:
Once fixed, the code might stay unchanged over cosmological timescales; in fact it is the most durable construct known. Therefore it represents an exceptionally reliable storage for an intelligent signature. Once the genome is appropriately rewritten the new code with a signature will stay frozen in the cell and its progeny, which might be delivered through space and time.
