    I don't think that HLI is too rare as we are finding evidence that there may have been more than one on Earth at a time; i.e. Neanderthal and possibily the Hobbit on Borneo.

    Neanderthals are not known to have been a HLI being in the sense of advanced technology building. They would be HLI in the sense of being more advanced than other animals. Neanderthal could be classified as homo genus which groups them in with modern humans where rarity is concerned.

    Even if there were five distinct types of HLI on Earth, for example...tech building whales, dolphins, dinos, monkeys and man. Compared to all life on Earth...five HLI types would still be exceedingly rare. I wanted to post my pyramid illustration but had to wait until I reached 11 posts. It would have better clarified my description of HLI.

    I can expand by mentioning that within the HLI grouping, the most common would be the ones just starting out In my opinion. That is to say, most Earth like worlds are populated by early planet bound HLIs with little technological capability. Under that scenario, there would be many planets with neanderthals, fewer with HLIs at the ancient Roman level, fewer still at the old west level and so on until one reaches the communications, space travel level with the space travel levels being broadly grouped into interplanetary, interstellar and intergalactic.

    For us on Earth, the only ones we would have even a remote chance of confirming are those who are capable of signal transmission or space travel. Once we reach regular interstellar travel capability...we should then be able to contact a broader range of HLI beings.

    And keep in mind, though I tend to think space capable HLI is extremely rare...as rare as one per galaxy or less...with billions of galaxies out there, HLIs become common anyway.

    that light can be slowed down so all you need to do is travel faster than that to go faster than light, i think there is more to it than the speed of light. light just happens to travel at 186.000 mile per second if left to its own devices, who knows what alien phisics says, maybe speed/light is relative, wasnt that what einstein was saying
    According to current theory, physical laws are the same everywhere in normal space, but they do break down at the event horizon of a black hole.

The limits of radio and other signals are that they originate from point A, and then arrive at point B(no matter how fast or slow, they always have to "travel to and from A-B")
    It's better than not looking at all. On the off chance that somewhere nearby another intelligent civilization is sending out radio signals either intentionally or not.

    Personally I rather doubt that an intelligent species would try to contact us.

    Hey John,

    Yeah, I'm with ya'

    > Yup, I'm as open minded as you!
    > Yup, love Ancient Aliens...Excellent show!

    I believe there's life out there...tons of it. Everything from the tiniest microbes, to civilizations that are possibly thousands, or even millions of years more advanced than us.

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!

    But, "there is always an exception"; and, "there is always a 'Bigger Fish'".

    Er go, "a few" Super-Aliens "plausibly" Exist. And, hypothetical Super-Aliens would "probably" be un-like earth-lings, and would "probably" not like what 'They' were not like, i.e. hypothetical Super-Aliens would "probably" be Super-Hostile ("no 'space friends'").

    Er go, hypothetical Super-Aliens pose a "plausibly probable" Super-Threat to earth. Er go, like monkeys in trees, looking out for eagles in the skies, humans would be wise to be "on the look out" for Super-Threats from "Gods in the heavens" (as it were), whose Existence cannot wisely be doubted, and whose Super-Hostility would wisely be presumed.
