Stephen Hawking Just Issued a Chilling Warning to Scientists Searching for Alien Life

(ANTIMEDIA) Stephen Hawking is known for offering insightful and often scary commentary on the universe and technology. The world-renowned theoretical physicist and cosmologist has cautioned against rapidly evolving artificial intelligencehumans exploiting and destroying Earth, and Donald Trump becoming one of the most powerful men on the planet.

Now, he’s warning scientists and humanity in general against becoming too friendly with alien life.

Hawking hosts a show called “Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places” on the science-themed subscription service, CuriosityStream. During the half-hour broadcast, CNET explains, he “flies by the potentially habitable exoplanet Gliese 832c in a CGI spaceship as part of his hypothetical dream itinerary for a tour of the universe.”

Hawking intends to scan Gliese 832c for signs of intelligent life using powerful radio telescopes, which he is using in a new $100 million project with Mark Zuckerberg and internet investor Yuri Milner. They intend to determine whether they can successfully send a “swarm of tiny spacecraft, each weighing far less than an ounce, to the Alpha Centauri star system” in search of intelligent life, the Toronto Sun reported in April.

On his show, Stephen Hawking explains that if intelligent life has evolved on Gliese 832c, which is 16 light-years away from Earth, his radio telescopes should be able to detect it.

However, he warns, “One day we might receive a signal from a planet like this, but we should be wary of answering back. Meeting an advanced civilization could be like Native Americans encountering Columbus. That didn’t turn out so well.”

Hawkings has made this comparison before and regularly presents analogies between intelligent alien life and colonialism, though his suggestion we avoid communicating with them appears to be new. Last year, while arguing it’s mathematically likely aliens exist in the universe, he said:

To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens perfectly rational. The real challenge is to work out what aliens might actually be like.”

In 2010, he suggested they might be eager to control other planets:

“I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach.”

Still, he is open to viewing the human race as nomadic, as well, acknowledging earthlings face a range of threats, whether they are environmental, nuclear, or they come from another planet. As he said last year:

I think the survival of the human race will depend on its ability to find new homes elsewhere in the universe, because there’s an increasing risk that a disaster will destroy Earth.

Indeed, scientists are actively looking for habitable planets, and some of their discoveries have preliminary potential.

Whether aliens come to us or we begin colonizing outer space, according to Stephen Hawking, they might be more like us than we imagine — and that’s a threat to our survival.

  1. “…Meeting an advanced civilization could be like Native Americans encountering Columbus. That didn’t turn out so well.” Let’s take a guess at who would represent Columbus.

  2. To evolve past our present state it would almost have to of been through positive energy and compassion, probably why they havent already done away with us

  3. We are aspects of God, the children of God, spiritual angelic beings. We chose to incarnate on Earth to experience this aspect of being and to examine potential, as we are doing throughout Creation. These so called Aliens are just a different aspect of physicality for us to experience. They are us, we are all One….there is a Godhead and we are all part of the collective consciousness of Creation. They are way more advanced than Earth humans because here we have had at least two cataclysmic collapses of Humanity. Each one lasting for millions of years whilst Angelic forces cleanse and re energise Mother Earth. We are heading for another collapse unless we start putting Love and Light into the negative conscious energy field of the Earth plane AND REVERSE IT. all is fully explained

    • Joseph is representing the collective consciousness of the millions of highly evolved spirits in his soul group. This is not opinion, THIS IS FACT. Delivered through fully recorded and filmed TRANCE MEDIUMSHIP in over 100 sessions takind the last 11 years….THE DICTATED CHAPTERS OF KNOWLEDGE …….THE MEANING OF LIFE ….THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO SPIRIT…….why we are here and where we go….Now in 6 books …..distributed by volunteers in the north of England WITH ALL INCOME GOING BACK INTO REPRINTS AND ADVERTISING. This information has not passed through a human mind that generally leads to skewed versions of truth. THIS STANDS UP TO SCRUTINY FROM SCIENTISTS AND SCEPTICS. Quantum physicists are now beginning to prove some of the facts in the Joseph Communications. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERYONE. Why wonder about so much that has never previously been understood or explained. Angelic Authority has allowed this information to be communicated, in the most part for the very first time….We should all be aware who we are and that our thoughts create our own reality….our thoughts do have power. Our soul is protected in a bubble of energy, we never die, it resides in our heart, the heart mind, the God within…….from where we get our intuition and emotions…..the brain is just a calculator. Everything is energy, frequency, vibration. The building block of the Universe is condensed light, we are beings of light. It is a matter of knowledge and perception now. Best wishes.

  5. They can only react to us based on our reactions to them.They watched us for centuries and know that we are trapped in our fears.Once more of us are enlightened,we will be opened to their pure energy.Until then,we are humans that should be feared or we will end up destroying the next planet we inhabit.

  6. Just look to the pyramids. They were here. Several alien races. Leaveing behind clues to the cosmos. Weither yu believe the lies they teach you or not is entirely up to you.

  7. I have heard of Stephen Hawking for many years and he is an extremely intelligent man. I would like to ask him, What do you think of all this scientific coverage of climate change? Do you think it is man-made and do you think all the changes that governments are doing is going to stop climate change or will it make any difference at all? Perhaps. as many say, this is just a natural process.

    • I’m not nearly as intelligent as Dr hawking, but scientific papers have been wrote and reviewed to have consensus. It is not only man made, but it is contributed by mankind. We have already done too much damage, that is proved. Even if not, our politicians and plotonamy won’t allow us to stop. We are now faced with finding the ability of controlling our atmosphere and weather systems. Other wise we will be faced with extinction within 200 years.

    • Christopher Gage McInnes we are faced with the prospect of yet another collapse of Humanity a lot sooner than that unless we reverse the growing negativity of the Earth’s conscious energy FIELD. The rich and powerful have been draining the energy from Mother Earth through mineral extraction and pollution. That negativity is influencing so very many to be fearful, greedy, violent etc. Quantum physicists are starting to understand the complexities of Creation which is based on energy, frequency and vibration. Stephen Hawking is an atheist and there lies the problem. The closed mind of Newtonian Science. When each of us looks in the mirror we see God, whatever we look at we see God. There is a Godhead and everything in Creation carries a vibration and memory. Everything is part of God consciousness. The building block of the Universe is condensed light. We are all aspects of God, the children of God, spiritual, angelic, infinite beings of Light. I could tell you so much but it is better read in the Joseph Communications…..the dictated chapters of the 6 ‘not for profit books’ delivered, filmed and recorded in England in over 100 Trance Medium sessions. Best wishes

        For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
        Ephesians 6:12 KJV
        Could this refer to so called aliens by non believers?
        You decide.

  8. what a crock of shit !!!! they are very friendly and disdainful of Hawking’s elementary errors…:)

  9. aliens are probably from etheric realm/demons

  10. Its okay scientists he’s just a mere man like everyone else

  11. I think it would be war eventually. We are a race of control freaks

  12. NEWS FLASH: We’re a threat to our own survival.

  13. I have always said there is life outside of our world & we can learn a lot from it.

  14. Man kind destroy everything even what he can’t rebuild or replace!

  15. Either we are alone in this universe or we aren’t …. both just as scary

  16. me i think if they were aliens they curious to see how advaced we r not yet ,and we would all be dead by them i do believe in other lifeforms yes but havent seen any yet .nature i think or god or whatever but the world is all we have look after it first i think

  17. As bright as the good Doctor is, he, like the rest of us is just guessing on this one.

    What a fake! Allegedly ALS for over 50 years. I call bullshit. A mental illness case being trotted around as something special. Stephen has, indeed, been “hawking” himself to show that pretense is more authoritative than reality.

  19. Wake Up ! Aliens could have taken over many years ago if they had wanted to! Their Craft can run circles around our jets!

  20. Oooh know if they meet Trump we would be put on the back burner for many more years!

  21. Geo Cata Geo Cata says:

    All my respect for him, but I am impressed how he can survive for so long without moving his body ? Is under the law of life

  22. Geo Cata Geo Cata says:

    How come millions of years ago was dinosaurs and giant people 7 meters tall and they hidden the history of giants people?

  23.' Kelsey says:

    I believe the ozone layer is made of spirit and spirit can’t get through or look through spirit only bodies can,the inner layer crushed spirit and the outer layer alive spirit.
    I believe we live in an illegal vision meaning the earth and bodies are not meant to be our natural state especially animal ones but we are all spirit people inside.
    I believe that big spirit that owns this house meaning the earth crushes’ us after death when we become just floating,thinking,spirit orbs/ghost embryos up in the ozone layer .
    I believe we live in one of the remotes parts of the universe and was created illegally by way of visions,meaning like dreams mixed with spirit by big spirit person and that there is a spirit lead universal government from outer space out there somewhere.
    I get my information from three spirits that own the earth that are in my body.
    Spirit people /ghosts do have technology but tend to travel by teleportation by way of thought with their spirit bodies.
    I believe most schizophrenics’ have either big spirit in them or ghost survivors in them that haven’t floated up to the ozone layer .
    I have had some paranormal experiences run along side me hearing voices and very strong visions /hallucinations caused by these spirits.
    The earth,space junk and space station has spirit warped around it as not to get us noticed by the real outer space universal government.

    It’s not quite like Columbus and the Natives. “They” are not a threat to our survival. They ARE our survival. They seeded our culture, and they are engrained in us. We are their heirs.
