At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements ;)
Through the Wormhole is back on. Hooray! It gives me all sorts of interesting things to ponder.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find the clip that prompted this week's question, but this clip is from the same episode. (I tried to embed it, but Blogger just isn't having it today.) It gives you an idea of the gist of where this particular question came from...
What if spam messages (the ones that sound like they were composed by someone whose first language is not English) are actually from aliens trying to figure out how to communicate with us?
