## METI: Messaging to Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence

Transactions of IAA RAS, issue 22, 69–93 (2011)

Keywords: Extraterrestrial civilization, SETI and METI, problem of silence of the Universe, METI list

### Abstract

METI (Messaging to Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) represents a cardinally new kind of human activity. Some argue that the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) also is cardinally new. Yes, it is new, but not cardinally so, because people have always passively surveyed the heavens in the hope of detecting something unknown, whether natural or artificial. However, a purposeful effort directed toward converting terrestrial civilizations into the object of detection by possible extraterrestrial civilizations, which is the focus of METI, is a substantially new activity
