Question: How do we open and establish communication with intelligent extraterrestrial civilizations, and SHOULD we?
In order to open communication with intelligent extraterrestrial civilizations, we need to first find a way to detect their existence and then devise a method of communication. Some potential methods of detecting and communicating with extraterrestrial civilizations include using radio signals, optical signals, and laser pulses. Once communication is established, it will then be necessary to figure out more complex methods of communication. As for whether or not we should open and establish communication with intelligent extraterrestrial civilizations, the answer is more complex. On the one hand, opening communication could lead to a greater understanding of the universe, and could even have the potential of leading to beneficial technological advances. On the other hand, contact with an extraterrestrial civilization could lead to unforeseen events such as the introduction of novel diseases or the disclosing of sensitive information about humanity. Ultimately, it is still unclear whether or not contact with extraterrestrial civilizations is a risk worth taking, and more research needs to be done before any actions are taken.
