Extending the syntax used by the Lone Signal Active SETI project.


The current beams are a series that extend the syntax defined in the second generation language created by Michael W. Busch and used by the Lone Signal Active SETI project for the hailing message. 

The second generation language used by the Lone Signal Active SETI project is generally described in the document "Lone Signal & Jamesburg Earth Station Technologies - Technical Setup," which can be found at:

http://www.webcitation.org/6Ik4qwRQ5

The second generation language specifies a standard for the message values, which are given in octal (integers in the set [0,7]). Each value corresponds to a single unique frequency. The offsets between those frequencies are set to be much larger than the bit rate (i.e. if transmitting at 100 Hz, the offsets between adjacent frequencies will be ~300 Hz).

The first generation of the language is set forth
in the paper “Testing SETI Message Designs” by Michael W. Busch and Rachel M. Reddick. The paper can be found at:

http://arxiv.org/abs/0911.3976

by Busch and Reddick is mentioned in Lone Signal - About - Science - Encoding

The new syntactical structure we are trying to convey is, at its simplest --

noun noun (relationship to) noun noun

-- where the construct “noun noun” represents two consecutive words in a sentence, and not a mathematical or logical operation.

Like the mathematical and purely logical statements defined in the second generation language created by Michael W. Busch and currently used for the hailing message, the new sentences are designed to use bi-directional text.  The only new concept we want to introduce is the syntactical structure of [ noun noun (relationship to) noun noun ]; we do not want to introduce the element or confusion of text directionality.

We first start with thirty-two messages where all nouns were previously defined in the Hailing Message as having a set value or specified range of values.

We next proceed with eight messages where: (a) in the context of "Life" and "Humanity" the noun “Age” does not have a value or range of values previously defined in the
Hailing Message; and (b) the sentence therefore attempts to convey relative values and relationships.

The current series of messages is translated below:

In the following messages: (a)
in the context of "Life" and "Humanity" the noun “Age” does not have a value or range of values previously defined in the Hailing Message; and (b) the sentence therefore attempts to convey relative values and relationships.
