Basic Interstellar Communication and Language 101
Sending the World Ark into Space
Our method of detecting signals from alien life as well as sending signals into space trying to communicate with aliens, is all wrong.
The main communication factor that you are missing is one of the number one aspect for all life across the Universe. The beating heart. All life has to have a beating heart. The heart develops over the time it is in the womb to childhood and then adult hood and then into old age and finally death. During the sequence of the heart it will beat differently based on the gravitational influences effecting the planet as well as the heart being either female or male.
Alien life isn’t going to send a complex series of lines containing a text message. The first alien contact will be the sound of the alien heart over the speaker that has been digitized and transmitted into space. We often think that sight, is how we communicate first and foremost. The first type of communication that life had with the Universe wasn’t sight, it was sound. The sound of the beating heart. People are connected with other forms of life on the planet, even if that life is a tree or fish. We make a connection to the life because it has a beating heart. Not much emphasis is put on saving rocks from being crush compared to people saving trees. Why? Because the tree has a heart that beats.
With an alien civilization having the same night time viewing equipment that we do, such as a 127mm Star Max + 20mm eyepiece/90 diagonal + LG7 ThinQ camera phone, there would also be similarities in the background artifacts that are created when taking a photo set on 1/3 sec and 3200 ISO. One such artifact that is commonly found is a heart shaped artifact. I’m not certain what causes the heart shaped artifact but the fact that it appears numerous times in one image is exciting. If I am seeing the same heart shape in a telescope that an alien is seeing in their 127mm Star Max or comparable telescope then the heart is once again the link that draws two alien species together.
How should the communication pattern work?
Rather simply. First collect heart rate data on humans from the time the first heartbeat in the womb is heard until the last heartbeat of a person. Different people can be used. One set of data would be female and the other set would be male. The data would then be sent out in packets starting with the heart beat in the womb, through toddler and adolescence and so forth. The pulse should first start off with a loud thump of static or the sound of the Ultrasound being used in-between each beat, some type of noise that will create a pause, if only sightly. Then the toddler set, adolescent set, etc. If an alien civilization is out there and they intercept the signal, when they listen to the broadcast their subconsciousness should immediately translate the sound into that of a beating heart.
When they begin to pair the heart beats up with their own species heartbeat patterns, they will begin to realize that each set of signals is comparable to the heart beats of children in the womb, toddlers, adolescence, etc. The alien species will then be able to better create a medical model of the alien life sending the heart beat message as will we be able to create a medical image of how the aliens look based on their heartbeat message.
A probe placed somewhere between Jupiter and Saturn on an orbit around the Sun that would be able to receive a signal back as well as determining the overall clarity of the Heartbeat Signal sent to and from Earth would help in future missions of creating better antennas to receive deep space signals.
Other heartbeats that could be collected to paint a picture of life one Earth would be:
- Turtle, Cow, Deer, Wolf - Land (Included would be sloth/Koala Bear, squirrels, snakes
- Turkey, Bluebird, Sparrow, Buzzard, Eagle - Air
- Minnow, Bluegill, Bass, Porpoise, Orca, Great White Shark, Moby Dick, Hump Back Whale, Blue Whale. - Sea
Each type of animal has a heartbeat pattern that is consistent with the environment that they primarily thrive in. Sea,Air or Land, all generates a unique set of heartbeat patterns that are separate from all others.
The aliens would then send similar heart beat patterns back to us for us to match up with the heartbeats of similar animals on Earth.
More importantly two heart beats from different planets will breach the distance of time and space, faster than the speed of light.
