    had detected a strange signal that was 94 light years away from Earth. During the time of the signal’s discovery, senior astronomer for SETI, Seth Shostak, could only describe the signal as “interesting”. However, he rhetorically asks, “Could it be another society sending a signal our way?” Shostak, like many other scientists who had heard about the mysterious SETI signal, had hoped for signs of intelligent life beyond Earth and its atmosphere. As it turned out, the signal was nothing more than interference from a military satellite. While the signal turned out to be a false alarm, it brings into question whether the benefits of an interaction with intelligent, extraterrestrial life outweigh the negative implications that come with meeting a vastly different group of individuals. The debate about whether there should be an active attempt to communicate with intelligent extraterrestrials is popular.

    observation can give you reason to believe the next expected outcome, but it does not necessarily guarantee an outcome. The Ravens problem shows that no matter how many repeated instances prove you correct there is a possibility that the next time will be different.
