I am from Hull (UK), and am the founder member of Team ACC - Arthur C Clarke Fans - join my group, please (I need help) -"I pointed out to you the stars and moon, but all you saw was the tip of my finger." -- Sukuma saying, Tanzania "When a distinguished but elderly scientist says that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he says it is impossible, he is very probably wrong." Clarke's First Law, from "Profiles of the Future" (1962) "The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible." Clarke's Second Law, from "Profiles of the Future" (1962) "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Clarkes Third Law, from "Profiles of the Future" (1962) "For every expert, there is an equal and opposite expert." A Clarke Law? "All explorers are seeking something they have lost. It is seldom that they find it, and more seldom still that the attainment brings them greater happiness than the quest." "The City and the Stars" (1956) "The fact that we have not yet found the slightest evidence for life - much less intelligence - beyond this Earth does not surprise or disappoint me in the least. Our technology must still be laughably primitive, we may be like jungle savages listening for the throbbing of tom-toms while the ether around them carries more words per second than they could utter in a lifetime." "Odyssey" p390 HAL: "I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do." "2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968) "It is better to know the truth than to dabble in delusions." Where? (1973)
I use Einstein@Home to use up my idle CPU time (I paid enough for my computer to not want it to go completely to waste whilst I'm not using it) and I believe Distributed Computing can be a powerful tool if used wisely. I believe that Pulsars could actually be ETI beacons: they seem to be too perfectly suitable for the purposes of Navigation and Information Dissemination; any advanced society/technology would know where these Pulsars are. I believe there should be a more rigorous and wide ranging study of Pulsars and an intensive effort to determine if any information content can be extracted (irrespective of whether we would understand any specific message or messages if any yet; that might require the discovery of some sort of Roessetta Stone and/or improvements Decryption capabilities).
