Universal life

I believe in the panspermia theory, where life's molecules are delivered to planets as from a space filled with flying dandelion seeds. Additionally, I hold the view that complex beings and civilizations naturally emerge under favorable conditions. However, what about the risk of civilization collapse?

The movie 'UFO' (full movie) starring Gillian Anderson ...


... centers around UFOs searching for intelligent life on Earth, with their unpredictable appearances tied to a code, and their curiosity about whether humans can decipher it.

A gifted student discovers that authorities are lying about a UFO sighting at an airport. From a recording of radio communications between air traffic control and planes at the time, he manages to decode the fine-structure constant (≈1/137), which, unlike i.e the speed of light, is independent of physical units like meters or seconds.

But I wonder, would beings with such advanced spacecraft capable of interstellar travel be interested in intelligence? While they likely observe conditions down to the smallest detail, what suggests they are fascinated by intelligence or are excessively intelligent themselves? Just because technology is advanced doesn't necessarily imply intelligence among its users.

Moreover, intelligence can pose problems in the form of overly rapid development, which threatens civilizations. In my opinion, superior technology and civilization evolve very slowly, safely, and thoughtfully—rather than explosively as seen on Earth.

Interestingly, purported real observations of aliens almost always describe naked and simple beings, rather than brilliant beings with significant agency.

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. — Matthew 5:3-11
