Scientist: Aliens May Harness Stars to Avoid Universal Expansion
The universe is expanding quickly. So, quickly that if we don’t do something, our galaxy will get left behind, as dark energy pushes us further into the infinite abyss. Luckily, this won’t happen for billions of years, but in the meantime, we may be able to find evidence of advanced alien civilizations that are planning for this catastrophe by harnessing the energy of neighboring stars.
At least that’s according to a new paper, published by senior scientist Dan Hooper at the Fermi National Accelerator Lab at the University of Chicago, proposing that we look for signs of an advanced extraterrestrial civilization pulling stars toward their home galaxy. Why? So, they can prevent themselves from being forever lost in the cosmic expansion.
Hooper’s theory is based on the hypothetical Kardashev scale, which laid out a series of technological advancements that delineate how advanced civilizations may progress. We currently sit below a Type I, unable to harness all of the energy on our planet, but hopefully we will someday move on to a Type II, in which we will be capable of harnessing the energy of our home star, the Sun.
But if there are other, older civilizations in the universe that have had a million more years of advancement, they may already be harvesting the energy of other stars in their galaxy and thinking about preventing their galactic isolation. This is the Type III civilization.
If that’s the case, these solar harvesters might leave evidence of their work in the night sky through light signatures or fluctuations, showing them dragging stars across the sky or through evidence suggesting a controlled depletion of a star’s energy.
Hooper imagines that these civilizations would, “use the energy that is harnessed to accelerate those stars away from the approaching horizon and toward the center of the civilization.”
Astrophysicists are still confounded by dark energy, having been unable to pinpoint and define precisely what it is. Dark energy is hypothesized to permeate all of space and is thought to be responsible for the expansion of the universe into the unknown.
Within 100 billion years, all stars beyond our Local Group will be pushed away, beyond the cosmic horizon, to the point they will no longer be visible from Earth. The same expansion will eventually happen to other galaxies and superclusters throughout the universe, unless a massively powerful force is able to prevent it.
So, if we’re able to get past the petty problems we currently face on Earth, in which we’re the biggest threat to our own survival, we’ll inevitably face larger issues, like getting lost in the depths of space.
In this episode of Deep Space we explore the potential evidence of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations forming a Dyson Sphere to harness the energy of stars:
Who are the Pleiadians?
It depends on who you ask. Some Subaru owners would say they are.
Subaru is the Japanese word for “Pleiades,” and the company logo, an oval with six four-point stars, represents the Pleiades star cluster. The word also means “united,” apt, because the Subaru corporation was formed by the merger of five companies.
Author Barbara Marciniak (Bringers of the Dawn: Teachings from the Pleiadians) is an internationally known trance channeler who speaks for a group referring to themselves as The Pleiadians. Self-defined as a “collective of multidimensional spirit beings from the Pleiades star system,” the group’s mission is to “assist humanity with the process of spiritual transformation.”
UFO researcher and auteur of Exopolitics.org, Michael Salla Ph.D. believes that off-world beings from the Pleiades star cluster are distant cousins to humans. Salla reports that the Pleiadians are motivated to connect with humanity out of concern for Earth’s future.
Cherokee legends teach that Native Americans originated long ago in the Pleiades, and assert that indigenous people are on Earth as “star seeds,” with a mission of bringing light and knowledge. The Navajo call the Pleiadian star cluster the “Sparkling Suns,” and the Iroquois petition the constellation for happiness. The Lakota/Dakota people say their ancestors are from the Pleiades.
According to the “Complete Guide to Aliens,” the Pleiadians have a distinctive “Nordic,” or Scandinavian appearance, 700-year lifespans, and while they are, in evolutionary terms, still a work in progress, they are far more emotionally and spiritually developed than earth humans.
