    aliens will think there are 4 billion of us but by that time there will be a ton more and we will have advanced significantly so it will start a war that neither the aliens nor the humans expected throwing off both sides and in the end everyone dies to bio weapons and what not

    How is any alien supposed to decode this... the methods for decoding this are so arbitrary, it's like they chose the world's worst puzzle designer to come up with this. An intelligent lifeform is going to have no clue what method we used to encode any of this, how would they know it's even binary, a base two system??

    Great presentation , but once again , not a word about the ARECIBO RESPONSE. It was sent to humanity through the means of a crop circle , and unavoidably most people have discredited this incident as a hoax , but the information held therein is a clear sign that we have strong allies out there , not just crazy blood thirsty movie stereotype reptilians or cunning insectoids.
