problem with translating 'alien' writing is that we can only decode
it using our Earthly intelligence. This means the glyphs, patterns and
construction must fit into what we know as "language". If
it doesn't fit , we won't understand. That's why we had no idea how
to read Egyptian hieroglyphic until the Rosetta Stone was found and
we saw how they translated into known Greek, giving us a key.
Languages fall into
Then you have "Alien"
languages or communications, which have come to us by people claiming
to have them by way of actual Alien encounters. There is always the
possibility that the receiver is delusional, hallucinating or trying
to pull off a hoax. And usually not very clever ones, either. It's astounding
how many Aliens out there only have a 7th grade working knowledge of
how to invent some fancy-sounding words. Like Richard Shaver's "Mantong"
language. Get it? Man-Tongue? Hahaha ! Or how Cosmic Travelers just
happen to find some French guy in the middle of nowhere and happen to
have an urgent message for Mankind for him to give to the world and
it happens to be written in, amazingly for some reason, crappy French.
But then there's there's stuff that makes you wonder because even if
it's not Alien alien, it's an "us" we don't know a thing about.
Are these really examples
of Alien languages or just alien? :)Judge for yourself.
