Dyson Spheres Key to Find Alien Civilizations Higher on Kardashev Scale

Dyson Spheres Key to Find Alien Civilizations Higher on Kardashev Scale

Searching for intelligent life in the universe? Then look for their energy source. An update on the hunt for Dyson Spheres.

In June of 1960, astrophysicist Freeman Dyson published his paper Search for Artificial Stellar Sources of Infrared Radiation in the journal Science. In it he argued a way to detect intelligent life in the universe by finding their energy signature that would be created by, he presumed a highly advanced technology.

He wrote, “If extraterrestrial intelligent beings exist and have reached a high level of technical development, one byproduct of their energy metabolism is likely to be the large-scale conversion of starlight into far-infrared radiation.”

Dyson, who died one year ago this month at age 96, believed that an advanced technology would harness solar power from a star with an array of solar panels. He explained in a 2003 interview that he once described it as a biosphere, but since then this theory has been known as a Dyson Sphere.

Dr. Seth Shostak Sr. Astronomer at the SETI Institute explains, “If you’re looking for E.T., if you’re looking for intelligence elsewhere in the universe, you’ve got to figure there are societies out there that are way more advanced than we are, you know the universe has been around for a long time. And they may have constructed something like a Dyson Sphere, or more accurately a Dyson Swarm, or something we can see. And there have actually been searches for alien Dyson Spheres.”

The Corporate Exec Who Met With an Extraterrestrial

The Corporate Exec Who Met With an Extraterrestrial

Every day, millions gaze to the stars for signs of intelligent extraterrestrial life, but what if they’re looking in the wrong place? 

Sebastien Martin, a highly successful business leader, offers insight into an alien’s life among humans on a strange planet—Earth. What is the source of this insight? His own life experience as a visitor from somewhere beyond the stars, and what he has to offer is a stark message for our little blue planet.

Martin has seen the tragedies of our world and communed with ancient beings, ranging from archangels to Sumerian gods. As revealed in his autobiography, “Inner Journey in Outer Space,” he has traveled through the cosmos in past lives and received sacred information he’s felt compelled to share with the world. All the while, Martin has lived the life of a man climbing the corporate ladder to become the CEO of a multinational corporation, while also maintaining home life as a happy husband and father. 

In the sixth installment of ETs Among Us, viewers are privy to quite the unusual and compelling story of a man who is much more than your average business executive. Beginning in Martin’s childhood, random, prophetic visions came to him. At first, he was perplexed, but when he realized his visions were coming true, he knew something greater was at play. Crediting his mother with providing encouragement Martin said she taught him we are much more than a physical body. 

As time marched on, Martin’s gift of psychic insight continued to strengthen until one day he had a meeting with a being from another world — a brother from an alien planet who pointed out that we are all living an illusory existence steeped in suffering. This encounter changed Martin’s worldview as he realized there was more than the temporal and self-limiting nature of reality as most earthlings perceive it. 

In November 2011, he had a close encounter of the fifth kind with an interdimensional being and has been in communication with an extended celestial family ever since. From this relationship, Martin receives seemingly inexplicable downloads aimed at raising consciousness.
