Hawking: Aliens Will Come Conquer Earth, Colonize It… And Exploit The Hell Out Of It!

After the breaking discovery that has a monumental impact on life beyond Earth: A planetary system with a number of Earth-sized planets that could host liquid water and, thus, extraterrestrial life  one might have expected the renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking to have met the news with happiness.

Hawking is majorly involved in the Breakthrough Listen – a ten-year initiative with $100 million funding begun in July 2015 to actively search for intelligent extraterrestrial communications in the Universe, in a substantially expanded way, using resources that had not previously been extensively used for the purpose. It has been described as the the most dynamic and progressive projects searching the universe for intelligent life.

Speaking to the Discovery Channel in 2010, Hawking said that it was likely that advanced aliens would probably be a nomadic race who would travel the universe conquering and colonize whatever planets they encountered.

“If so, it makes sense for them to exploit each new planet for material to build more spaceships so they could move on. Who knows what the limits would be?” he asked.

Hawking doubled down on these pessimistic statements at a Breakthrough Listen event. He said:

“We don’t know much about aliens, but we know about humans. If you look at history, contact between humans and less intelligent organisms have often been disastrous from their point of view, and encounters between civilizations with advanced versus primitive technologies have gone badly for the less advanced. A civilization reading one of our messages could be billions of years ahead of us. If so, they will be vastly more powerful, and may not see us as any more valuable than we see bacteria.”

Although Jill Tarter, the former director of the Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) doesn’t agree with Hawking. She said:

 “While Sir Stephen Hawking warned that alien life might try to conquer or colonize Earth, I respectfully disagree. If aliens were able to visit Earth that would mean they would have technological capabilities sophisticated enough not to need slaves, food, or other planets.  If aliens were to come here it would be simply to explore.”

However, she did acknowledge that this was no guarantee aliens would respond positively to humanity.

Essentially, she said, there is absolutely no way to know how an advanced alien race would respond to human civilization.

    Like anybody else,I do not know for certain, but I firmly believe in the possibility, that Earth had been colonized by Extra Terrestrial beings hundreds of thousands of years ago!
    Some of us, are possibly the offspring of some of these ET’s and the proof of their existence is quite obvious but Ignorance and Arrogance will prevent us from embracing the Obvious Truth!
    I also , from my own ignorance believe that_ if They had been here before and moved on to Other planets in Our Galaxy_ They would be Observing our “development” and May Choose to “interfere” because of our Decadence and Destruction of this Planet!
    As the Earthlings have done by Colonizing various Countries by Forcing the Existing Natives of those counries into wars and Slavery, so it will be, when They Return!

    My opinion, If and when we evolve to a more Intelligent species that might be capable to explore and invent what is needed for humans to travel space, time the universe…Remember the human embryo in the womb passes through all the evolutionary stages of the altruistic kingdoms of humanity, his sensory impressions at childhood takes him/her through all the metamorphosis of human history; His eyes are that of an ancient Teuton, at 6 those of Socrates, at 8 aware of colors discovered in the 18th century; before that time, violet was blue? The point is for example “colors” in the solar spectrum which already have a name but the knowledge of which Is reserved for future civilizations to discover If evolution allows us? For now we have our Imagination; curiosity and will to explore; some aesthetics (materials) needed,that evolution has allowed us to understand at this moment in our human evolution, for now? How little we know the universe around us, Time will Tell

    Humans are already exploiting the earth. Nothing new under the sun.
