A new theory has been formulated by John Learned of the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. The theory says that aliens could communicate with one another by jolting a star with a kick of energy to cause it to pulse. This could be done, he says, with high-energy particles called neutrinos which would be directed into the core of the star.

This ‘blink’ in the star could be used as a way to transmit binary messages across the universe. In effect it would create a universe wide internet system.

According to a report in New Scientist, Learned and his colleagues have focused their attention on stars that vary regularly in brightness.

These stars are a special class of stars named “Cepheid variables” and because they generate so much light, they can be seen for up to 60 million light years away.

Edwin Hubble first identified some Cepheids in the Andromeda galaxy, thus proving its extragalactic nature (not known at that time).

More recently, the Hubble Space Telescope succeeded in identifying some Cepheid stars in the Virgo cluster, at a distance of 60 million light years.

Assuming there are other alien civilizations who could re-transmit the message, communication between galaxies is more than possible. This could be the foundation of an alien super-internet.

“The beauty of the idea is that we have over a century of data on Cepheid variability so it is necessary only to look at it a new way to spot the signature of ET tampering,” Learned told New Scientist.

Could it be that aliens have been trying to communicate with us all along?
