“WE ARE STAR PEOPLE: Scientific proof we were created by aliens”
Above is how the attached article words its headline, but I don’t believe I’ll go so far.
Basically what is here being said is that within our DNA (DNA basically just being chemically-encoded information) is information “…ordered so precisely that it reveals an “ensemble of arithmetical and ideographical patterns of symbolic language”” [news.com.au].
The upshot of this, at least per the scientists so concerned, is that certain parts of the DNA could not have simply evolved, but must have been synthesized to embed some information or message.
It doesn’t seem that we can read it (not yet, perhaps not ever), but the paper promotes the idea of it being there.
Sound silly? Lots of things about reality and existence sound silly (read, understatement). Other beings could have an ~13.4 billion year head start on us, as such one (or some/many) could have evolved to (even beyond) what we would think to be God(s).
Here is the paper. I have yet to read it, but I’m sure it’s quite interesting.
Also, I should qualify that this could simply be an error in how we are looking at the information. Because of the kind of beings that we are (sentient, and highly complex ego-driven forms of life), it is not uncommon for us to see what we want to see (in this case other sentience in the Universe) in an otherwise natural, orderly, and entirely lacking in intent, unthinking cosmos.
Or maybe we are the result of some nifty contrivance…
p.s. I should note that some of this information was released on April 1st… so… yeah. As they say, take it all with a grain of salt.
