i heard something someone said about possible alien communications that gave me chills and it would make an excellent prompt for a sci-fi story
we finally get a message from aliens. "Stop broadcasting, you're in danger."
and then: silence.
"Keep broadcasting. A little louder, if you can. This will draw Them away from Us, and towards You. Suckers."
what if human civilization was established to do just this?
@Nikolai_Kingsley i can't find it but there's an smbc comic where we finally detect an alien broadcast and it says "Alert: The tastiest life can be found on planet 'Earth', located at these stellar coordinates..."
@monorail dark forest
@snailerotica damn i looked it up and yeah, that's it, huh
@monorail that sounds a lot like "blindsight", too, except: then, invasion because we wouldn't shut up (:
@monorail oh fuck
