Although it is relevant to the discussion of the Fermi paradox,( i.e. how long to technologically advanced civilisations last) I wonder whether there is mileage in having a thread on the difficulties of detecting such civilisations that may have existed in the distant past. Also to include detection of colonies or visits from elsewhere at a similarly distant point in time.
The Fermi paradox thread https://forums.forteana.org/index.p...-aliens-contacted-us-yet-fermi-paradox.28807/ has touched on the difficulties of detecting a theoretical early agricultural level dinosaur civilisation and what resources it may have had. What are the difficulties, what could we look for? ...
Sorry for not being clear.I understand the elements of the topic you wish to address, but I'm not getting a clear impression what the topic is.
Are you referring to (for example):
- detecting civilizations "out there" (in the universe)?
- detecting past terrestrial civilizations here on earth?
- detecting terrestrial visits / presence of ETs?
- technological civilizations in general (definition; origin; features; histories)?
- some / all of the above?
... In other words did any other species start to develop any sort of civilisation involving agriculture, toolmaking, use of fire before hominids? ...
It does, thanks @EnolaGaia . I completely failed to find those on searchOK - thanks for the clarification. We actually have a thread dedicated to the question of how we can or might detect evidence of any civilization prior to humans:
Silurian Hypothesis: How To Detect Any Pre-Human Civilisation?
There's a separate thread addressing the specific case of a possible dinosaur civilization:
... but it seems to me your theme matches the Silurian Hypothesis thread.
More of a name change request than a merge request: based on the correction of details in the story, shouldn't the thread Wojtek: Nazi-Fighting Czech Bear? in Fortean Fauna be changed to Wojtek: Nazi-Fighting Polish Bear?
The focuses are a bit different, but do you think the Odd People (Human, But Strange) thread should also incorporate the currently very active People Who Think They’re Special thread?
