The University of Malta is hosting the the first Star Trek academic symposium on July 10-11 2014. This event is an academic meeting, with the presentation of scholarly papers that will explore the intersection of the humanities and the sciences, on topics related to the famous Star Trek series. An excellent opportunity to introduce a scientific analysis of the Raelian Message to the academic world! The following abstract has been accepted and will be presented by a member of the Raelian science team. This is the first time the Raelian hypothesis is presented at an academic symposium.

Title: The Raelian hypothesis: Star Trek-like origin and spread of intelligent life in the galaxy
タイトル:ラエリアンの仮説: スター・トレックのような起源と銀河系に広がる知的生命体

Abstract: In the Star Trek episode "The Chase", the protagonists learn that all humanoid life in our galaxy (Humans, Romulans, Klingons and Cardassians) share a common origin: they are all the result of genetic engineering by the first humanoid species in the galaxy. The exponential nature of technological progress in our terrestrial civilization suggests that habitable planets in our region of the universe might become populated by our own creatures in the distant future, making us Founders of new intelligent life made in our image. But what if we are not the first intelligent life in our galaxy? Is it possible that life on Earth is the result of a scientific experiment by an advanced extra-terrestrial civilization? In this presentation we will explore this fascinating hypothesis, first proposed by the Raelian Movement 20 years before "The Chase" episode, and examine how it could be reconciled with modern science, from paleontology to genomics.
概要: スタートレックのエピソード「追跡」で、主人公達は、私達の銀河系の全ての人間型の生命体(人類、ロミュランズ、クリンゴン、そして、カーダシアン)は共通の起源を持っている事を学びます。それは、つまり、銀河系に誕生した最初のヒューマノイド型人類が遺伝子工学を駆使した結果生まれたものであるということです。私達地球の文明における指数関数的な性質のテクノロジーの進歩は、宇宙の私達の領域に存在する居住可能な惑星が、遠い未来に、私達自身が科学的に創造した生物が生息する惑星となる可能性を示しています。そして、その時、我々は私達の姿形に似せて創造された新しい知的生命体の創始者となるのです。しかし、もし私達が私達の銀河系で最初の知的生命体でない場合どうでしょうか?地球上の生命が我々よりも進んだ地球外文明により、科学的実験の結果誕生した生命である事はあり得るでしょうか?この発表では、私達は人々の興味を掻き立てるこの仮説を探求していきます。その仮説は、「チェイス(追跡)」のエピソードの遥か20年前にラエリアン・ムーブメントにより初めて提案されたものであり、古生物学からゲノミクスの分野に至るまで、現代科学とどのように調和出来うるか分析していきます。



Star Trek Symposium
Malta 10-11, July 2014

Welcome to the website of the first Star Trek academic symposium. This is an event that differs from the traditional Fan-Based Convention in that it is a platform for academics from across many disciplines to meet and explore the intersection of humanities and sciences. It will be an academic meeting, with the presentation of scholarly papers that will explore the intersection of the humanities and the sciences.


The Chase (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
追跡(スタートレック: ネクスト・ジェネレーション


"The Chase" is the 146th episode of the syndicated American science fiction television series Star Trek: The Next Generation, the 20th episode of the sixth season. It is directed by series cast member Jonathan Frakes (Commander William Riker). Set in the 24th century, the series follows the adventures of the crew of the Federation starship USS Enterprise-D. In this episode, four competing expeditions—Federation, Klingon, Cardassian, and Romulan—attempt to solve an ancient genetic puzzle.
