What Is The Most Advanced Civilization In The Universe?
Imagine, for a moment, that some angry alien mobsters decided to invade our planet. They come with all sorts of gadgets and, most frighteningly, took our armed forces by surprise. Surely, we would try to defend ourselves, but who would win the battle? The answer is not a mystery. It all boils down to how civilized those guys are. The more civilized a planet is, the more powerful and independent it becomes.
In 1964, Russian astrophysicist, Nicolai Kardashev, came up with a unique scale for categorizing civilizations into different levels of advancement. The scale categorized civilizations based on the amount of energy available to them and how they are able to harness that energy to foster technological advancement. At the time, Nicolai’s scale contained information about planetary, galactic and stellar civilizations. Over the years, with the development in nanotechnology, biotechnology, and quantum physics, the scale has been upgraded, and now categorizes planets into 7 different civilizations.
It’s easy to imagine that earth is the most advanced civilization since it’s the most inhabitable planet, but this isn’t the case. As at now, our planet is no way near peak civilization. Below is a list of the 7 different civilizations.
