Rendezvous with RAMA?

Copyright 2022, InterAmerica, Inc.
While writing my post (below this one) I was being nudged by a review of Arthur Clarke’s sci-fi work, Rendezvous with Rama, that I recently saw by a fellow I follow on YouTube.
I won’t divulge much about the book – in case some visiting here haven’t read it yet (and it’s about to be made into a movie perhaps).
The point I’m about to make involves that academic trouble-maker Avi Loeb who thinks that the oumuamua object that flew into our solar system from interstellar space was, maybe, a probe from an advanced civilization somewhere in the cosmos.
(I accept and like Loeb’s conjecture. He also posits that a thing that landed in the Pacific Ocean in 2014 may have also been an object from outer space.)
Why a so-called advanced species would send a probe around the Universe, one that looks like a god-turd, goes to Clarke’s book.


  • Whether or not Loeb is correct, I think it's time mainstream science gets shaken up a bit, and such speculation becomes part of the conversation. Someday, someone's theory will be proven correct, and when that happens we don't want to be stepping on god-turds.

  • I like, Ronald, that Avi Loeb sticks his neck out and pushes the idea that intelligent species may be reconnoitering the cosmos.

    I can hardly find it credible that a long-lived advanced species might continue to come to our area of the galaxy or Universe but, perhaps, we are a "sight to behold" -- tucked away at a place where we are like one rock among many, yet a unique rock.

    That we are not worthy of contact -- like a proverbial ant-hill -- is galling but there it is.

  • Damned if we are, damned if we're not. Well, someone or some thing apparently finds us interesting, Rich. Like I've said, that's not necessarily a good thing.

  • Interesting or peculiar, Ron?

    Like the inmates in the mental wards we psych students visited for class study.
