    Yes, but Avi Loeb is still in need of medical attention. There's nothing about this that's indicative of aliens.

    We should know by now that any new phenomenon we cannot explain with our current scientific understanding must be aliens.
    So, until we prove it's not aliens then it's aliens!

    It's the academic legacy of Timothy Leary.... Someone is putting LSD in the coffee.

    That's the ticket. Just like the early claim that pulsars were aliens!
    But seriously the signal characteristics are totally incompatible with any life in the neighborhood. Further establishing the high advancement of the alien tech!

    Hi nFA. Perhaps Avi Loeb has watched the movie Contact (1997) too many times.
