Quick pitch

Ellie and Palmer return from seclusion to find that SETI has taken a life of its own and that with a second transmission they have the opportunity to get closer to the enigmatic alien message, and perhaps even the nature of their being. Along the way they gain much insight int the nature of consciousness and the sophistication of making initial contacts with any sentient life.
Can humanity accept the rules, will it twist the technologies to its own ends? What will we lose in order to make new gains?

Project Type: Feature Film (An hour)

This project's owner would like a little help on parts of the project.

Some stayed choosing mortality. Others changed their nature, they joined the collective. No one can say what was right or wrong. It was simply a choice. Many years before this the construct you are now familiar with become the repository for many conscious minds. It was a savior. All could pursue their dreams and not consume the precious resources.

I think truth is personal reconcilliation of fact and belief. Epistemologically there are many truths we've found, but like you we don't know what we don't yet know? As for hopes, we want the same as any other life... purpose.

If for example, during the original SETI program we found a rocket from Pluto. I mean instead of Vega, and not actually intended for us... We would learn much about the technology and language used in the signal. We would shout to the heavens and send them an audio reply. We would want to limit the duration because the kind of energies involved can't be simply left on for ever.
(pause)
We would probably wrap it in primes to attract their attention. Then, knowing that the technology would ripen, we might also send them instructions for the manufacturing of a TV and transmitter. Then we wait for them to build it.
 

Anyone can join this project.
