Space Law is Coming

January 15, 2010

It’s 2095.

Or even 2010.

This is not, I repeat, a science fiction movie.

A spacecraft is hovering near Yankee Stadium, in the middle of the Red Sox series, and they don't even have tickets. Or, less important, a visa.
 
The fundamental rights of life and liberty in the U.S. are granted under Constitutional provisions.

The most important question, then, is whether the extraterrestrial
visitor would qualify as a person or merely as an animal under our laws.

Andrew G. Haley, general counsel of the American Rocket Society, was the world's first space lawyer.

When the Society held its eleventh annual meeting in 1956, Mr. Haley delivered an address on "The Present Day Developments in Space Law.”

Turned out there were practically none.

It was the beginnings of  “Metalaw," a word he coined, from the Greek, “meta,” meaning beyond our present frame of reference.

Haley had some complicated premise of reversing the Golden Rule and advocating that we treat ETs as they want to be treated.

Since if, “We apply the rules of man to outer space with our own earthly standards, we will be imposing our own beliefs on people that may be superior to us.”

In other words, treat them nice. Since if they got here, they're capable of anything.

(No doubt, they have some "Metalaws" for us too.)

Along comes Robert A. Freitas Jr., author of "Xenology," to take what Haley started and pose the question:

“When an alien lands on the White House lawn, who should greet him, her or it? Someone from the Immigration and Naturalization Service, or someone from the Fish and Wildlife Commission?”

It depends, I guess, what they’re made of.

The new term is ETI for Extraterrestrial Intelligence.

Dr. Ernst Fasan, an Austrian jurist enters the picture in 1970, with the first full-length book on the subject: "Relations with Alien Intelligences."

You know he's serious since he ties it in with Kant's Categorical Imperative, and makes basic assumptions about the character of the extraterrestrial creature —alive, three-dimensional and possessing a “will to live.”

He came up with 11 Rules of Metalaw—the first six alone could get the burgeoning field of space law off the ground:

No partner of Metalaw may demand an impossibility.

We need another space lawyer to interpret this one.

No rule of Metalaw must be complied with when compliance would result in the practical suicide of the obligated race.

As opposed to impractical?

All intelligent races of the universe have in principle equal rights and values.

Who determines intelligence?

Every partner of Metalaw has the right of self-determination.

Depends on what they want to determine.

Any act which causes harm to another race must be avoided.

Especially if it's us.

Every race is entitled to its own living space.

Should we clear out the local Holiday Inn?

Unfortunately, Freitas deplores that these "fine metalegal concepts have not found their way into American law."

So the question becomes, what will our present legal system do when the day of reckoning comes?

(And, in case, it is here already, I can understand why ETIs haven't come forward as they aren't protected under the law.)

At the very least, we'll have another group of lawyers to hate.

J. Peterman

Metalaw may or may not be our unilateral decision to legislate or litigate. As to all events in the universe and here on earth, I am reminded of Kerouac's remark from The Dharma Bums, "Pain or love or danger makes you feel real again." Then I consider Einstein's thought that reality is itself an illusion albeit a persistent one. So what happens in the here and now or in the there and then, whether real or speculation may be a persistent illusion awash with pain and danger but always an opportunity to love and that is real freedom- the personal decision to love freely.

Whoops!  How did these meta-beings slip through our meta-borders?  Where was ICE in all this?  Are they friendly?  Do they bring (lots) of money and/or eye-popping technology?  Enquiring minds want to know. HOWEVER...Boundaries and borders have always been an issue in inter-anything politics.  Where does a cop's cross-county line 'hot pursuit' end?  How far into the river does the state's boundary extend?  Where does international water begin?  And, most importantly, what are the proposed penalties for violating 'my space?'  How do we enforce these meta-laws?  Fasan's First Law, "No partner of Metalaw may demand an impossibility," seems to have been taken from Bouvier's Law Dictionary.  The maxim, "A l'impossible nul n'est tenu. (No one is bound to do what is impossible)" has long been a tenet of contract law.  (I am NOT an attorney, by the way.  Just a simple potter.)  But, think of this.  Just 100 years ago, it was completely unthinkable to send pictures and voices through the air.  It was impossible.  Only a century ago, so many things we now take for granted were not even imagined.  Now, if another society of beings shows up here in a ship, the range of what is possible and impossible has just significantly narrowed.  As for where those boundaries begin and end, who now makes those determinations?

Laws, or more accurately rules of conduct, between
civilizations are established from positions of power.  We only respect the other guy if the other
guy can do something to us.  Since this
is how it is in the animal kingdom as well, in any frame of reference I can
imagine, how we will deal with and be dealt with by ETs  is dependent on who has the bigger gun.

In our morning paper, the obituary of a seventy-two year-old man listed only his place and time of death, date and place of birth, parents and that he was a veteran of the U. S. Navy.

"There will be no formal services."

I don't like that and though it is absolutely none of my business, it is time to shake the information tree and fill in the blanks. Three score and twelve is too long to have left no tracks and I know people who know things... maybe this is just an excuse to talk to them again.

Happy birthday to a heretofore photographically established adorable child whose father ought really to take a moment to inform the village as to the origins of a name that at least one of us had not seen before. Are you taking pics... vids maybe?
