    Cellphone towers, WiFi routers, satellite dishes, devices with receivers and transmitters in them. Even with wireless communication, you have to have devices capable of sending and receiving signals.

    The US Border Patrol just captured Narciso Ortega, a 92 year old Mexican national attempting to cross the border with Texas.

    Ancient Illegal Aliens?

    I want to believe.

    There will be a time when we will be talking like walkie-talkie...& via satellite. no cellphone towers needed. the devices will be made of 100% biodegradable material. Will that civilization be called as having lost the ability to have advanced communications when 10,000 years later some archeological digs tries to find evidence of civilization?

    It is pathetic that folks try to judge the advancement of a certain civilization based upon their own progress today.

    Just how far do you plan on moving the goalposts in this conversation? I'd like to know before I bother spending any time trying to answer your questions.

    That was the original intent. Too bad you could not even understand. Moving goalposts....my ***

    One day they won't even need signals. Just telepathy. Or something else. Surely, @Nostradamus/@sureshs can throw some light on how advanced civilization beyond our power of imagination will be ! :D

    All of us who had close encounters can verify that YES they do communicate by telepathy. when the brain advances to highly evolved form, they learn to use telepathic capability of the mind. We have it also, but we just can't control it or use it cause we are not that far along in our evolution

    See, I was right. Good old Nostradamus agrees with me.

    You asked how future civilizations would judge "our age." You asked "In this day & age of..."

    In other words, you asked how future civilizations would find evidence of today's technology. I gave you the answer, and then you changed the question to ask how they would find evidence of some future technology that doesn't exist yet. That's moving the goal posts. If your intent was to ask how future generations would be judged when their technology is less permanent, then you should have asked that question instead.

    But to answer your new question, you have to remember that biodegradable materials only degrade when they are exposed to the elements that make them do so. If they're not, then they don't. That's why, for example, centuries-old wooden ships that have sunk in certain areas are still in relatively good shape. In the event that a future civilization gets wiped out, there's always a good chance that at least a few examples of their biodegradable technology would become entrapped in something that protects them from the elements, even if unintentionally.

    Also, it's likely that future generations will continue to intentionally leave lasting records and examples of their development like we do now with museum exhibits, time capsules, and so on.

    So, there might not be enough evidence to get an exact picture, but there will probably be enough to get a pretty good idea.

    Surely we have some stuff on the Moon (or maybe even Mars?) that will not degrade. A future civilization will find that and know that an earlier civilization existed that reached the moon.

    Moon definitely. Mars perhaps has storms, but it has a thinner atmosphere, so not sure about it.

    Aliens have moon base already. NASA already knows this as fact. and they are supposed to keep their mouth shut

    So what are they doing on that boring rock, with no atmosphere and its either too hot or too cold. Worst place to be in, frankly.

    You are hoping that the future civilization would be as advanced or more than us.

    they don't want to be found or seen. so they are hiding on the other side of the moon and watching us to see what other stupid thing we will do next. if Trump leads us into WW3 then they may have to intervene

    Absolutely. After the third world war, the remaining humans will be just as good as apes for they will neither have the infrastructure nor capabilities to get back to the advancement we had before the war. All they will do is write on the walls of how great we were, and after 10000 years these achievements written on the walls will be taken as imaginations of a creative mind and nothing more.

    You mean like Atlantis which went down in the sea, but now everyone claims it was a hoax. Luckily, those guys flew away in their spaceships to Planet X before their island submerged.

    Advanced aliens have quarantined us on this planet (system) until we stop killing each other.
    Nostradamus has proof, but he is tight-lipped.

    Look closer to home and you will find even better examples than Atlantis.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brahmastra

    "As described in a number of Purana, it was considered as a very destructive weapon. It is said that when the Brahmastra was discharged, there was neither a counterattack nor a defense that could stop it, except by another Brahmastra, Brahmashirsha astra, or a Brahmanda astra. The Brahmastra never missed its mark and had to be used with very specific intent against an individual enemy or army, as the target would face complete annihilation."
