Theoretical considerations on the central nervous system of future homo sapiens lead to the conclusion that communication with SETI is,probably,impossible

I have studied,since 1976 to now,how our CNS functions and I have
deduced the following things concerning the future of homo sapiens
intelligence(for understanding of the vocabulary,please go to
http://dog.net.uk/claude where you will find an ensemble of draft
notes,some of which are relevant to SETI):
Future homo sapiens brains will be "neuromodified" through a yet unborn
science which I term "neuromorphogenetics".
Neuromorphogenetics will be a branch of "general morphogenetics").
Logical characteristics of the brains of homo sapiens in the future
should be as follows:
1.Verbal sequential language replaced by non-verbal non-sequential
2.Intensity of Consciousness modified:
a.future homo sapiens will be able to make their consciousness "radiate"
at will,a process which will give them exquisite ways of problem
b.future homo sapiens will be able to have a polyfocal type of
consciousness instead of our,normal,monofocal form of consciousness.
c.A system,critical in order to control the intensity of our
consciousness(which I termed the Consciousness Activating System or
SAC),will be greatly perfected in order to sustain a permanent state of
polyfocality and in order for consciousness to explore,deeply,the stored
data of our memory.
I have recently found that consciousness is a phenomenon of resonances
between memory domains.
The more we have these resonances going on in our brains and the more we
Presently,in our normal brain,the quantity of these resonances is
low,thus our consciousness is low.
In future homo sapiens,the quantity of resonances will be
increased,thanks to the modification of the SAC.
So our descendants will be vastly more advanced than we are.
If we look at how fast our scientific knowledge grows,it is my belief
that all the above things will be realised before a 1000 years or so.
The consequences of these modifications are so enormous that our
descendants will(obviously for me!) not communicate with us and will go
their own way...
A millenium is a tiny amount of time in the reality of the Cosmos!
Presumably,then,all advanced ETI capable of reaching the stars
have,first,neuromodified their brain in the way I hypothesise above,as I
believe that life,most probably,follow the same laws of organisations
anywhere in the Cosmos.
In my opinion,then,there can be no contact with ETI slightly more
advanced than we are. The time lag between our kind of intelligence and
the ameliorated,neuromodified,intelligences is minute.
Possibly,we could only communicate with those intelligences who are just
on the very same level of development
where we are.
But,as far as advanced ETI are concerned,basically,it is my opinion that
we cannot communicate and that,consequently,SETI is a waste of money and
