Professor says discovery of Alien Intelligence might be a spiritual experience

Earth From Space

Important Takeaways:

  • Harvard physicist searching for UFO evidence says humanity will view alien intelligence like ‘God’
  • Harvard professor Avi Loeb predicted that the scientific discovery of an alien civilization — one that may potentially be billions of years old — will prompt humanity to unify. He talked to Fox News Digital for a wide-ranging interview that covered billions of years of history, and even interstellar fragments from the bottom of the ocean.
  • Loeb, a trained physicist who received his PhD from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem at the age of 24, said it was “arrogant of us to think that we are alone, that we don’t have a neighbor out there.”
  • “There are tens of billions of planets in the Milky Way galaxy alone and hundreds of billions of galaxies like the Milky Way in the observable volume of the universe,” he said.
  • Loeb said, people across the world should be “open-minded.”
  • That doesn’t mean that the realization, on a humanity-wide level, of “neighbors” in the universe would not be a shocking event, Loeb said. In fact, it might be a profoundly spiritual experience.
  • “A very advanced scientific civilization is a good approximation to God,” Loeb said. “Imagine a cave dweller visiting New York City and seeing all the gadgets in technology in terms of the lights appearing as a miracle to the cave dweller.”
  • In the same way, Loeb explained, a “higher level of intelligence may not be easily understandable to us.”
