So There’s A Scientist That Says Aliens Are Immortal Robots Who Are Billions Of Years Old

In today’s “holy hell, this is insane” bit of news, a scientist from the University of Connecticut and the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton doesn’t believe that aliens are like what Hollywood movies tell you they are like.
Susan Schneider believes that aliens are robots and have been around for billions of years. Here’s what Schneider had to say in a Daily Galaxy report.
“I do not believe that most advanced alien civilizations will be biological. The most sophisticated civilizations will be post-biological, forms of artificial intelligence or alien super-intelligence.
All lines of evidence converge on the conclusion that the maximum age of extraterrestrial intelligence would be billions of years, specifically ranges from 1.7 billion to 8 billion years.”
That sure is a lot of birthdays.
Many researchers believe that the first aliens we encounter will be robots. Many scientists believe that the period from the discovery of radio waves, to organisms turning themselves into immortal robots will be relatively brief.
For instance, Google’s Ray Kurzweil has predicted that man will merge with machine here on Earth in the year 2050. The upshot of this is that it’s far, far more likely that we’ll meet aliens after they’ve turned into machines, according to experts.
And here’s what Seth Shostak of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence says:
“Consider the fact that any signal we pick up has to come from a civilization at least as advanced as we are. Now, let’s say, conservatively, the average civilization will use radio for 10,000 years. From a purely probabilistic point of view, the chance of encountering a society far older than ourselves is quite high.”
When it comes down to it no one knows what in the hell aliens look like or what they are up to, I just believe they are real and sooner or later they are going to come down and heal us all and give us superpowers. Right? Right.
