It seeks only existence proof of other technological civilizations. Merely detecting an artifact (radio, optical, or otherwise) which difinitively answers the question 'are we alone' will be invaluable, whether or not any meaning is ever conveyed. >>and that,consequently,SETI is a waste of money and >> time!
