The only thing can say about other civilizations space travel
is that they have away to travel in space. Lets stop saying they are
"advanced". I say look around and say "95%" of what is around on will 
be on another planet.

Aliens are human !! because beings similar to mature humans is the only
way that will surive the rigors needed to live long to develop
space travel.

Still too slow to usefull.  When you encode all you want to say in one
message long message say 5 years long the lag is not that bad.

I allways thought madness come out of fear and conflicts
do to overpopulation and lack of self esteem.

Check out http://www.autodynamics.org/
(Society for Autodynamics - picks up where special relativity leaves
 including breaking the light speed   barrier.)
You may find the equations on this site interesting.
