Dark Matter Making Us Blind To Alien Life, Says The Study.
Our limited understanding of the dark matter and energy may make us blind to the signals from intelligent alien life, which possibly exists in dimensions that humans cannot perceive.
“When we think of the other intelligent beings, we tend to see them from our perceptive and conscience sieve; however, we are limit by our unique vision of the world, and it is hard for us to admit it,” says Gabriel de la Torre, from the University of Cadiz in Spain.
“What we are trying to do with the differentiation is to contemplating other possibilities, for example, of dimensions that our mind cannot grasp; or intelligence on a dark matter and energy forms. Which is making up almost 95 percent of the universe and which we are only beginning to glimpse,” says de la Torre.
The researchers are experimenting with 137 people, who have to distinguish aerial photographs with the artificial structures such as buildings, roads from others with the natural elements like mountains, rivers.
In one of the images, a little character disguised as a gorilla was inserted to see if the participants noticed. “It is very striking, but very significant and representative at the same time, how our brain works,” says de la Torre.
“Before doing the test to see the in attentional blindness we assess the participants with a series of questions to determine their cognitive and it is turning out that the intuitive individuals identified the gorilla off our photo more times than those more rational and methodical,” he says.
We transferred this to the problem of searching for other non-terrestrial intelligence; the question arises about whether our current strategy may result in us not perceiving the gorilla,” he says.
“The traditional conception of space is limit through the brain, and we may have the signs above and unable to see it. It is not looking in the right direction,” de la Torre says.
“We can have the signal in front of us and not perceive it or be unable to identify it. If this happened, it would be an example of the cosmic gorilla effect. In fact, it could have happened in the past, or it could be happening right now,” says.
In the study published in the journal Acta Astronautica, researchers also pose how different classes of intelligent civilisations could be. They present a classification with three types based on five factors – biology, longevity, psychosocial aspects, technological progress and distribution in space.
An example of Type 1 civilisations is ours, which could be ephemeral if it mishandles technology or planetary resources, or if it does not survive a cataclysm.
However, it could also evolve into a Type 2 civilisation, characterised by the extended longevity of its members, who control quantum and gravitational energy, manage space-time and can explore galaxies.
The third type of intelligent civilisation, the most advanced, would be constituted by exotic beings, with eternal life, capable of creating in multidimensional and multiverse spaces, and with an absolute dominion of dark energy and matter.
So, these are the points to describing on the Dark matter making us blind to alien life, says study.
