(ORDO NEWS) — If humans tried to talk to aliens, it would be like ants trying to talk to humans. Experts are convinced that people are inferior to aliens in mental development and will not be able to communicate with them.
Scientists believe aliens are highly intelligent because the solar system is 4.5 billion years old – compared to the universe’s 13.8 billion years – and have been around for much longer to develop intelligence superior to humans.
Professor Michael Garrett, director of the Jodrell Bank Center for Astrophysics in Manchester, said: “It is possible that there are other kinds of intelligent beings that have abilities that are completely beyond what we can imagine.
It will be similar to how ants try to communicate with people”.
Dr Louise Preston, an astrobiologist at University College London, said: “I’m sure we’re like ants. We have really inflated egos about our ability to think.”
