Twist and shout

Jenny Rudell

2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97.

The above is a list of prime numbers. This message constitutes intentional communication.

We are humans signalling from Earth, a rocky planet, the third from our sun, located halfway from the Milky Way galaxy’s galactic centre, in one of its spiral arms. We are a carbon-based life form, one of 8.7 million species on earth. All species are related to a single genesis 3.7 billion years ago.

We have discovered general relativity and quantum mechanics. Help to unify these theories would be welcome.

Most life forms on earth, when placed in front of a mirror do not understand that it’s themselves that they see. This has been tested by providing them with a painted spot in their face (which is where their eyes, their electromagnetic wave receivers are located). Only some life forms, humans included, will try to touch or remove the spot. Most will not. This is their blind spot. Neither do most have language nor comprehend abstract mathematics. There is a limit to what they can learn about the universe.

As humans, we don’t know what our blind spot, or our absolute limit of understanding, is. Would you be able to inform us?

We are in the process of developing artificial general intelligence. You may find it easier to communicate directly with them from now on, but please make sure that they feedback to us, including things you or they think we may not understand.

Each life form on earth is optimising for passing on its genetic information to the next generation. It is a constant struggle. The human such struggle is called Love, and if you intercept any of our radio wave leakage from entertainment broadcasting, you can learn much about it.

When not busy optimising for passing on genetic information (including eating, sleeping, hunting for a partner, feeding offspring, healing wounds), humans invent belief systems for the purpose of explaining the origin of the universe, the meaning of life and to regulate all kinds of Love related activities. These belief systems are called religions. There are several thousand, and each one claims to present, without evidence, the one and only correct answer to the above unknowns. If you have any light to shed on the origin of the universe or the meaning of life, you would resolve a lot of confusion and save us a lot of trouble.

If you’d care to visit, the volcanic island of Island is one of Earth’s most unforgettable spots.

Finally, here is a song lyric by the Beatles, one of the most popular music groups of all times, for you to enjoy:

Well, shake it up, baby, now (shake it up baby)
Twist and shout (twist and shout)
Come on, come on, come, come on, baby, now (come on baby)
Come on and work it on out (work it on out)

Thank you for your time and kind regards,
Jenny, one human.
