Languages, including digital codes, are symbolic (re)presentations, rising up from highly developed social structures.These social structures have externalized human memory, both out of the mind and out of the place of present. So this memory is a link between culture and brain. It makes one think if any creature is to receive and understand these messages will be of human species.
So could it be in future, when humans have colonized space, if encounter with these messages out there in space, they will need tools and knowledge to understand human intelligence at our time, when the messages were sent?... If humans could be the receivers of these codes what is our memorabilia to the upcoming generations and future space archaeologists
