AV Loeb (Harvard astronomer): Nature does not create objects like ‘um muvua’

In October 2017, scientists at the Halekala Observatory in Hawaii discovered an interstellar object entering the Solar System. Um Muwama (Hawaiian “explorer”) took eleven days to cross our neighborhood, long enough for scientists to understand that it was not a comet or asteroid, but what was it?

This is clear to Abraham “Avi” Loeb, an Israeli-American astronomy professor at Harvard University: “Um Muwama behaves like a solar-powered solar ship, and we know that nature does not create such things,” according to a book by Extra in Planeta Publishing’s “Extra” In a telematic interview (“Extraterrestrial”, English edition).

Loeb is not a spy. He is the Director of the Institute for Theory and Computation of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, the President of the Council for Physics and Astronomy of the National Academies, and a member of the Advisory Board of the President of Science and Technology in Washington. Defends and defends the “simple explanation”: um Muamuwa is the technological remnant of an intelligent civilization.

Q: What is um muamuwa?

Answer: The basic question is whether it is artificial or natural. When I go to the beach I often see not only natural stones and shells but also plastic bottles that are evidence of a civilization. Following that similarity, we know that none of the rocks we’ve seen in the Solar System resemble um muwa – although astronomers have tried to find similarities – but this is something we have never seen before, so it may be artificial. Because of its geometry, -it is basically flat, because of its strange brilliance, it had no tail or expelled gases, but most of all, because of its motion around the sun: it behaves like a solar system and nature does not create such objects

Q: You suggest that this is a part of intelligent life.

Answer: His movement was not as expected. It did not follow a controlled movement with a defined path, such as that generated by a motor, but we did not expect it to be a functional object … As Voyager 1, 2 or New Horizons probes launched, they may or may not have been flying through space for thousands of years, even though they are not yet operational. Although not functional … Like the plastic bottle on the beach, it is no longer in service but had its purpose.

Maybe um Muamuwa did not have a precise goal. Maybe it’s part of a set for navigation, maybe it’s a quest or a boo, but I think it’s more space junk. I think it can be done in space as well as studying archeology on Earth and finding signs of extinct civilization. We do not need civilization to live to find evidence.

Q: Your suggestion was controversial. Why is the possibility of intelligent aliens so much ruled out?

Answer: Currently in science (in astrobiology) the search for microorganisms is accepted for signatures related to the origin of life. This is a legitimate search, but looking for signs of an intelligent life is not on the agenda, that is my complaint. No one is looking for or showing signs of an intelligent life, and young people are abandoning that possibility because the intellectual climate is unfavorable.

But to analyze um muwa, I followed the same method when studying other secrets in the universe like dark matter or black holes … I investigated the inaccuracies and came to a conclusion and put it on the table (um muwa may be fake) real.

I think many scientists have threatened the human meaning in some way, because my theory raises the possibility that the neighborhood may not be the smartest. People like to think we are unique and special. It started with Aristotle who said that we are not the center of the universe, and it goes on to say that we need extraordinary evidence to prove that we are not alone and that there is intelligent life in space.

I argue the opposite: if there are billions of habitable planets in the universe, we should already be convinced that we are not alone and are looking for evidence of modern technology.

Q: You also studied philosophy. Will this training help to open the mind?

Answer: The current trend is to learn a particular aspect of a trend and become a world expert, but the danger of over-specializing is that you can go down and find no other way. There may be something exciting around the corner, you won’t see it. That attitude limits our view, and if you don’t have an open mind, you can’t imagine an alternative.

Einstein drew many ideas from his theory of relativity from philosophers like Mack, which allowed him to gain a broader perspective and explore new territory. I am convinced that my interest in philosophy set me apart from my colleagues. I always ask myself the big questions of humanity and scientists need a broader perspective to make better discoveries.

QUESTION: Do you think we can ever have contact with intelligent aliens?

Answer: Interstellar travel can take years, which is a major challenge for the human body and technology. Most likely, only equipment can make those trips. So the first proof of an intelligent alien being is to discover its technology, which is why it is so important to take a photo of the next um muamuwa.

I always follow the example of the caveman who only sees rocks and one day finds a mobile; Logically you would think it was a shining rock because it is the only thing you have ever seen. But for us, our current technology allows us to imagine objects of different origin from nature, and it would be magical if we could find it. We can learn from it and import it into the earth, which will carry our knowledge forward a million years.

Q: If another um muwama happens to show that there is an intelligent life, will it change the discussion?

Answer: If we receive a photo that appears to be fake, it will change everything. I think we are not the smartest in the universe. It will affect religion, our aspirations as human beings …. It will truly be the greatest invention of mankind. EFE, Aurora
