If we ever meet with intelligent, extra-terrestrial life, math should be our go-to language. To them, humans will just be another animal living on this planet. Seeing our building and structures would be no different from seeing the intricacy of an ant's nest or a beehive.

Showing them our math will separate us from every other living creature on Earth. It'd be our best chance not to get blown to bits.

I'd say drawing up to 20 dots would be sufficiently. They'd know we're using a base 10 system once they see 20.

>>7752220
I don't understand what you're trying to communicate.

>>7754068
>implying I'm not one of those aliens

>>7756725
Binary would be clunky and inefficient. The majority of humans can't do binary arithmetic. Using dots to introduce our base-10 system, then doing some basic operations (2+3=5, 4-1=3, 2*6=12, 15/5=3) to introduce more symbols and slowly building from there would be a good course of action. See >>7752428

>>7753754
I'm sure they wouldn't need to introduce themselves to us in order to study us. The only reason they'd introduce themselves to us is to see how we handle extra-terrestrial contact.

>>7754113
>implying jesus wasn't a 5ft desert manlet
>>
>>7751771
I totally agree with the first premise, thoug not the second. Humans routinely speak about how we would identify higher life on this or that planet. From finding signs of material which cannot naturally occur to literally dozens of other methods. And this assumes the aliens don't overlap enough with us to eyeball something very obvious, like satellites or radio transmissions. They'd very likely grok us as higher life, or at least the closest thing to what they consider that in this ecosystem. Math serves as the best method of meaningful communication we have beyond that point.

Any aliens that come into contact with us would have to be outside of our solar system as there clearly is no well-developed life on planets inside out solar system (beside us).

The closest star system to our solar system is Alpha Centauri, 4.37 light years away. So, assuming extra-terrestrial life comes to Earth, they'll either be traveling at near-light-speed or for quite a long time.

Near-light-speed travel is something beyond us at the moment, so extra-terrestrial life that has traveled to us at such speeds would certainly not "grok us as higher life". If they've been traveling at speeds <1% of c (sounds small but it's still very fast), the trip to Earth would take 437+ years. The Solar Probe Plus is a spacecraft that's going to be used in an upcoming NASA mission in 2018. It's mission involves approaching the Sun, where it will achieve a velocity of up to 200000 m/s, making it the fastest man-made object ever. At this speed, it would take extra-terrestrial life 10925 YEARS to make it from the closest neighbouring solar system to ours.

Now, they wouldn't bother making the trip at that speed as they'd advance their technology and significantly shorten the travel time, but any civilisation that could make a trip like that would be far more advanced than us. We can't even send a man to Mars, yet.

My tea cup designs now surpass what any sane person would ask for and are surprising close to my goal to most people. But it still only can survive a third of the surface temperature of the sun. It could go higher with other deigns, but none of the higher temperature versions can survive taking repeated shots of high caliber anti-material rounds, let alone a tank round. It is looking like there are physical limits to what I can build. Stupid weak atomic bonds.

I hate that meme more than any other meme of any profession ever. congratulations you have the most basal human ability of empathy, if someone dying is presented to you, you want to make them not die, you're a hero. You could have made your contribution of making people not die in a million more effective ways, across a plethora of fields, with engineering, political, and scientific solutions to bringing clean water to third world countries, or curing diseases, but you chose to be a pill vendor or a body cutter. I'm not shitting on medicine, doctors and surgeons are highly skilled, I just wish pre-med fags would throw out the altruism and admit they're interested in a well compensated job and societal status to some degree. This bothered me so much because when I was younger I told a few people I'm thinking about medical school, and now here I am dealing with questions like "why do you want to be a doctor anon, such hero, such genius, wow the only one in your family who went to university, what's your secret?" doing chemistry at a university 3rd year, all of my friends and family are living vicariously through me because they want me to be a doctor and get them out of debt, like I'm some kind of martyr for them. I literally just want to live in a trailer park and read books about organic chemistry, making a shit wage.
