"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

Broadcasting "Hate Speech" to Aliens?

The quixotic project of beaming tweets with the hashtag #tweetsinspace to the planetary system GJ667Cc later today apparently will be censoring what the designers call "hate speech" from their broadcast.

I quote: “It all goes,” says Kildall, the new media exhibit developer for the Exploratorium. “Even political positions I don’t agree with: ‘Vote for Romney,’ ‘Vote for Obama.’” (All except hate speech, he added. We might not want to betray our baser nature to the ETs.)

However, I would assert that urging anyone to vote for either of the evil tweedle-dee/tweedle-dum twins  Obama/Romney is indeed equivalent to "hate speech." What a polluted abomination we will be broadcasting toward these perhaps innocent life forms. I fear it will be tantamount to proof positive to any sentient aliens out there that there is no intelligent life on this planet. Alas...
