  • In SETI, when searching for “beacons”—transmissions intended for us and meant to get our attention—one must guess the appropriate frequency to search by considering what frequencies would be universally obvious to other species. This is a well known concept in game theory, where such solutions to a non-communicative cooperative game (such as a mutual search) are called “Schelling points.” It is noteworthy, therefore, that when developing his eponymous units, Planck called them “natural” because… CONTINUE READING
