Greetings Earthlings

There was a lot of stuff in the media a while ago about SETI and its so far fruitless quest to find messages from aliens.‭ ‬One thing that emerged was the possibility that by following its current policy of simply tracking radio signals from the depths of the universe, SETI might not be looking in the right place.‭ ‬A message from another planet might in fact be transmitted by a very different method and in some unexpected form.

Ignoring Stephen Hawking's subsequent burst of intergalactic racism, I started wondering if I could solve this puzzling dilemma. ‬What about those strange words you have to copy when you fill in online forms,‭ ‬I thought. Supposedly, they are there to establish that you are a human,‭ ‬but what if they are actually little bits of alien speech‭? (‬Well they could be,‭ ‬you know,‭ ‬anything’s possible,‭ ‬if you believe SETI‭)‬.‭

Just in case they might be,‭ ‬I have been collecting the ones that have come my way ever since.‭ ‬What on earth‭ (‬ooooh,‭ ‬double meaning‭) ‬they could possibly be saying is way beyond me,‭ ‬but I’m sure the people at SETI will work it out.‭ ‬And so,‭ ‬without further ado,‭ ‬I present my whole collection‭ – ‬in all its enigmatic glory:
