With the rapid development of human science and technology, especially the deepening of space exploration, there are more and more discussions on alien civilization. A few decades ago, after human beings just walked out of the earth, many people still had doubts about the existence of extraterrestrial civilization, and even many scientists believed that there was only one civilization in the universe.
But now such a voice is basically invisible in the scientific community, and few scientists will stand up and say that there is only one civilization in the universe. The reason for this is that scientists’ attitudes towards the existence of alien civilization are also undergoing major changes. The reason for these changes is that our understanding of the universe is constantly improving.
The more we know about the universe and the deeper we are, the more we will feel the insignificance of the earth and human beings. From the perspective of the universe, the probability of the existence of an alien civilization is basically 100%. Although we have not found any extraterrestrial life or traces of an alien civilization until now, scientists believe that the root cause of this situation is human beings. The space technology of China is still relatively backward.
We do not have a faster speed to go out of the solar system to explore other galaxies to search for alien civilizations, and there is no powerful astronomical telescope that can observe more detailed conditions of extraterrestrial galaxies. The limitations of technology prevent humans from exploring alien civilizations. Even the neighboring galaxies of the solar system have extraterrestrial civilizations. With the current observation technology of human beings, it is basically difficult for us to find out.
If you want to observe and discover alien civilizations, in addition to the fact that alien civilizations come to the solar system on their own initiative, if you want to observe them through astronomical telescopes, you need very powerful energy waves to erupt from the alien civilization or it is possible. It should be understood that the universe is not a peaceful space, and various big bang events occur at all times, such as supernova explosions.
Such an explosion event can be detected by our telescopes and other observation equipment due to its very high energy level, which is why we can discover many celestial bodies in the universe. So someone raised the question: If there is an interstellar war between two powerful alien civilizations in the universe, can it be observed by us?
Some scientists once proposed the law of the dark forest, and believed that this law should also exist among the civilizations of the universe. Although we have not yet come into contact with any extraterrestrial civilization and have no understanding of cosmic civilization, we can basically determine the existence of the law of the dark forest from the internal conditions of human civilization.
In the biological world of the earth, the weak eat the strong and the survival of the fittest is the basic law. Even for intelligent races like human civilization, there have been many wars, large and small, from ancient times to the present. The purpose of wars is nothing more than various resources. In order for human beings to survive, wars will erupt if they compete for resources. This is a very normal one. Things.
This is true within human civilization, and interstellar wars are more likely to occur between different intelligent civilization races due to conflicts such as resources. The development of any intelligent civilization is inseparable from resources and energy, especially after becoming an interstellar civilization, the demand for resources and energy is even greater.
Although from the perspective of the universe, resources are infinite, but the development of any civilization is achieved step by step. The limitations of science and technology are not only limited by humans, but also by other alien civilizations. Scientists once divided the strength of cosmic civilization into four levels. Civilizations of different levels use different resources and energy, and at the same time, the range of areas where they can move is also limited.
Unless they can become the most powerful fourth-level civilization, they can span the entire universe, and civilizations of other levels can only move within a certain range of cosmic space due to speed limitations. And there may be different interstellar civilizations in the limited universe. At this time, it is not surprising that interstellar wars occur due to contradictions such as resources and energy.
So can the scenes of the interstellar war be observed by us? In fact, this is also very difficult. We want to observe interstellar wars in other galaxies. In addition to the distance factor, what is more important is the scale of this interstellar war? If it is only a small-scale war, the energy waves produced are difficult to be observed by us.
Even if there is an interstellar war in the neighboring galaxy, if the scale is too small, we will not be able to observe it. So what kind of energy level can we observe? The explosion of energy in a super galaxy similar to the explosion of stars, some people may say, can the war between two interstellar civilizations burst out such a powerful wave of energy?
We should never underestimate the terrible power of science and technology. Everything in this universe is inseparable from the category of science, and science is a great university that overrides all the rules of the universe. The current level of human civilization is less than level 1, only level 0.7, and all of them can create terrible things like nuclear weapons that can destroy the planet.
Then the first-level civilization, the second-level civilization, the third-level civilization and even the fourth-level civilization, they are bound to be able to create even more terrifying weapons of destruction. For example, a first-level civilization can use the energy of stars to serve its own civilization, can make full use of the energy of stars, and naturally has the ability to destroy stars. In other words, the stars can be artificially exploded in advance and supernovae can occur.
The second-level civilization may have more powerful weapons of destruction, and can even destroy star systems like the solar system, while the third-level and fourth-level civilizations are also the same. It can be seen that the interstellar war is not a war mode like the Earth Age. Once the two civilizations become fiery, they may end up using the last ultimate weapon at the time of life and death.
In this way, the ultimate weapon contest may explode as much energy as a supernova explosion, and this energy release may be observed or monitored by us. However, even if we observe an energy explosion in a galaxy in the depths of the universe, it is difficult for us to determine whether it came from the release of energy from natural celestial bodies or from an interstellar war.
There are many powerful energy releases in the universe, such as rapid radio bursts, which are super energy waves emitted from at least billions of light years away. The release from such a distant starry sky can be observed by us, showing how powerful its primitive energy burst is, and human beings are still unable to determine the source of this powerful fast radio burst.
For another example, as we said above, the second-level civilization may be able to destroy stars artificially, and its supernovae will occur ahead of schedule. If an interstellar war breaks out, will a civilization end the war by destroying stars? The answer is very possible. For a star system, a star is a super nuclear fusion energy body. Detonating it is enough to destroy a star system.
Supernova explosions are not uncommon in the universe. We have also observed a lot of stellar explosions. So are these stellar explosions when the star life ends? Could it be because of interstellar war? All of this is possible, but we cannot be sure. It can be seen from this that with the current scientific and technological strength of mankind, although some explosions of cosmic energy can be observed, we cannot be sure whether such explosions are man-made.
Therefore, the possible interstellar wars between alien civilizations cannot be determined by humans’ current observation capabilities. It can be seen that the strength of human beings is still very small. Only after we strive to become a first-class civilization, we may have the initial strength to explore alien civilization. And when we explore alien civilizations now, we are actually doing useless work, because this is not something that the current human civilization can do.
