When we think about the possibility of human contact with
alien civilization, we immediately ask a lot
important issues. How hard will it be to enter this
contact? Will we be able to recognize the first alien attempt
establish communication with us? Will the earth race understand
a culture completely beyond our perception of the world?
Are we finally recognizing the art of “green men”? Will be

one of the types of communication between different nations and races. AT
the British scientific journal “Scientific Reports” recently
published the results of a curious study concerning
potential alien music. Scientists suggest that
aliens should also have the concept of music, and man

The authors of the article say that our civilization is hardly the first
contact with aliens. We still don’t have any
tools for communication with the distant cosmos, and even flights of earthlings for
millions of light years away from their home planet look clean
fiction. Studies show that a person cannot for long
survive off the earth. This means that if a contact happens, then
its initiators, in all likelihood, will be the aliens.
This means that they will be much more advanced than we
you. Consequently, the music of “green men” may well
prove to be more complex and perfect than that used to
people. AT качестве примеров ученые приводят поп-музыку и классику.

Menzies, one of the authors of the study, believes that
music of representatives of an extraterrestrial civilization who wish
contacting us is likely to be much more
sophisticated and refined than the greatest earth works,

Alien music will help us understand the aliens
In other words, Menzies suggests that even the most

we can not even guess what musical instruments
use aliens, what are the vocal preferences of these
creatures, what is their writing talent, etc. Their music can
prove so beautiful and incredible that will open in us

between aliens and earthlings.
