Headstone of Humanity


So why should humans try to send universally comprehensible messages to the universe? There are a variety of such reasons but many relate to mortality. There will come a time when Earth is no longer habitable and when that day comes everything humans have ever done may be lost. This may not be objectivly bad, but some people might wish to avoid. The thought of some alien (organic or otherwise) learning even a little about us comforts some people.
