Transcript:
I adore to view science fiction movies but I cringe – I cringe each time I see a depiction of the aliens. First of all the aliens speak fantastic English. Not just British English. They speak fantastic American English. And definitely they are a human inside some variety of monkey accommodate. I suggest we have Hollywood specific outcomes, correct. So why simply cannot we get improved aliens. And then the aliens believe just like us. They’re territorial. They want to conquer. They want means. They want – they see humans as inferior. But you see, that is only a byproduct of our evolution. Glimpse at other animals in the animal kingdom. Some animals are not territorial, okay. They really don’t have to conquer. We have other paradigms in the animal kingdom which are totally unique sort the way our brain is manufactured. But when we glimpse at aliens in the movies we’re mainly projecting our have consciousness in aliens. Our fears, our desires are projected and they are a mirror of who we are, not a mirror of who they actually are.

For instance, if we choose a glimpse at a bat or a pet, the dog’s brain is predominantly interested in smells. It’s swirling in a universe of smells even though a bat’s brain predominantly is concentrated on sonar, on detecting clicks and echoes. Exact same issue with the dolphin brain. Their consciousness is totally unique from our consciousness since they see things differently than us since of their evolutionary history. For instance when we see a cat and the cat arrives up to us and attempts to purr following to us, we say to ourselves, “Oh, great cat. The cat is staying affectionate.” No. The cat is not staying affectionate. It’s only rubbing his hormones on you and saying, “I have this human. This human is mine. I’m marking my territory. This human feeds me two times a day. I’ve trained him.”

So a cat sees the universe totally unique than we do and however we impose our imagining on an alien. Now on the problem of intelligence. If these aliens are extra clever than us, how would they be extra clever? In the book I say that one of the primary ingredients of intelligence is to predict the future. The capability to simulate now so we see tomorrow. And that involves a superior stage of intelligence to be able to recognize the regulations of character, the regulations of individuals. What is the most probably outcome of a future party. That involves intelligence. If they are extra clever than us they will see the future a lot improved than us. They will see outcomes that we can’t foresee. They will simulate scenarios that we can’t even aspiration of. They can outwit us each time.

Believe of a safecracker. A safecracker could have a minimal IQ, could have dropped out of elementary university. But the safecracker can simulate the future a lot improved than a cop can and that is why he can rob financial institutions and get away with it. And so in other words, the criminal brain is not always silly since it has minimal IQ. It’s rather effectively tailored for what it does. And what it does is to simulate the future of a criminal offense. Now believe about when we come across clever lifetime that is extra clever than us. They could see the world totally differently. Their world could be a world of smells, a world of sounds somewhat than a world of eyesight like our brain is manufactured. And most critical, they could be able to see the outcome of future functions a lot improved than us. They’ll be able to basically run circles all around us since they see the future.

  12. Humans always project themselves on aliens – proceeds to do exactly that with the cat story. For fucks sake really? Maybe its not about control maybe its about bonding?

  13. Humans do tend to subject objects, beliefs, things and ideas with anthropomorphism. Which is of course a maladaption of our cognitive faculties.

  18. You know, I keep thinking about 3,14… the number or pi and I started to believe that in pure mathematics this number is eternal why people bother to find this last digit when in Space infinit has an end and first would be the infinit inside a Black Hole but this is not what I keep 🙂 thinking about. What is with this speed of light ?Saw you have a generator, one fixt part usually the magnet and a mobile one a little bit more complex in construction compared to the fixt part, made by an iron core or multiple (for some what performance) surrounded by copper wire(good and cheap…) and when this mechanism spins (better said the central iron core(3….14)thru a coper wire goes like crazy a N number of electrons with the speed of light until the point where they go back thru the Neutral wire connected on the generator which is connected to Earth and my questions about speed of light are: What is actually speed of light? I understand that is recorded as a particle but also as a wave saw it is possible that this electron starting from the generator doesn´t…this is a long question…just go thru the wire and by hitting in it´s way another electron the same amount of energy is transferred to the next one with the speed of light +?!And it is possible maybe in this case that the light is the wave made by the impact between this two electrons from where the wave and the particle travel with the same speed on a short distance? Now that short distance who can measure it?Joke :).I think the sound would be always in front of the particle when it goes with the speed of light and the secret of light speed travel is because of the ton made by this wave and that little dot where is a little and super compressed wave keeps going since lets say Big Bang… and what if Dark energy is actually consumed energy(I mean pure energy consumed)?Who says that the consumed energy doesn't have an effect on the Universe?… Funny guy passing by and Carry on Big Think

  20. Why shouldn't aliens look like us & think like us?
    They would be the same result of equivalent evolutionary pressures:
    We have 2 eyes & we walk & have a pair of hands with opposable thumbs for good reasons.
    The same laws and the same reasons would apply anywhere else in the universe.
    Aliens must look like us.

  22. Human arrogance leads us to believe that all intelligent life must do and go through exactly what we have when we have no evidence for that assumption. Like I said, Human arrogance.

  23. Aliens are not aliens,they are just human evolved species of the far future.These future people are evolved and because of this,their brain faster and smarter just like computers,computers are getting elvoved every year,this year Razer is the faster computer,next year an another computer which is faster thatn Razer will come out.Human brain is in limits and a few people can overcome them.Future peoples are the future generations,we just in some pictures the future human bodies.The are big because of the screens in computers the brain may become smaller of bigger.The mouth will get smller because the food will be smaller and with more vitamins.Our fingers will become larger because we must to grab things better.Our hair will dissapear because we do not need them anymore.
