  SETI - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A basic assumption of SETI is that of "Mediocrity" [1]: the idea that humanity is not exotic in the Cosmos but in a sense "typical" or "medium" when compared with other intelligent species.
SETI advocates did not give up, and in 1995 the nonprofit "SETI Institute" of Mountain View, California, resurrected the work under the name of Project "Phoenix", backed by private sources of funding.
SETI has occasionally been the target of criticism by those who suggest that it is a form of pseudoscience.

 Dynasty 19: Merenptah, Amenmesse, Seti II
Seti II (Userkheperuresetepenre) 1200 - 1194 B.C. Seti II was probably the fifth or sixth king of Egypt's 19th Dynasty, depending on the treatment we give Amenmessses who may have ruled before, concurrently or even after him (though that is less likely).
It is very likely that Seti II may have originally been buried with his wife, Tausret, in her tomb and later moved to this tomb which appears to have been hastily and incompletely finished, by Sethnakht (Setakht).
The scene of Seti II and Nefertem were cut over the original opening vignette of the Litany of Ray which was then reinscribed further down the corridor.

 WHO WAS WHO AMONG THE ROYAL MUMMIES
Seti II is an interesting case, because he should belong to the Nineteenth Dynasty line, being the grandson of Ramesses II and son of Merenptah.
The confusion between Seti II and Thutmose II may have been occasioned by the similarity of their prenomens when written in the hieratic script.
However, with the exception of the Seti II mummy, the mummies of the Ramesside kings of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Dynasties do not present serious problems of attribution, so that one can be fairly confident about the mummies of Seti I, Ramesses II, and Merenptah.

 Ramses
Ramses II could have as many wives as desired, not only because of the rights of the pharaoh, but women generally had little say in marriage partners, although rights were equal in almost every other aspect of life.
During the rule of Ramses II, the capital was Pi-Ramses (Sheler 2), meaning "the House of Ramses, beloved of Amun, Greatest of Victories." (Freed 34) Ramses II built this capital on a tributary of the Nile, known as Waters of Ra.
The main reason that it is believed that Ramses II is the biblical pharaoh is that "the Israelites, when under the control of Pharaoh, built the cities of Pithom and Rameses." (Holy Bible Exodus 1:11) Historians believed this city to be Ramses II’s capital, Pi-Ramses.

 Pharaoh Merenptah and The Later 19th Dynasty History
Since the campaign against Kadesh is dated to the 5th year of Ramses II, counting from his date as sole ruler after the death of his father, but the overall length of his reign would often include the coreign with Seti perhaps in classical, oriental fashion of exaggerating, and an effort to impress.
The wide difference in the reign length of Seti the Great plus Ramses II as compared to Psammetichus I and Necho II is due to the remaining monuments of Seti the Great which mention as highest date his year 11 and giving a long reign to his son Ramses II.
In conventional view Seti II damaged the inscriptions, wall reliefs and images of Amenmesses but according to revised view much of it was done by the agents of Cambyses.

One theory holds that Seti II was absent at the time of his father's death (perhaps involved with a military campaign?) and Amenmesse took advantage of the temporary power vacuum to have himself installed on the throne.
Seti II had three wives: Takhat II, Tawosret (who was the mother of crown prince Seti-Merenptah), and Tiaa (mother of Ramesses-Siptah.) Apparently, Seti-Merenptah predeceased his father, and Siptah eventually became king.
Reeves notes that Seti II was probably furnished at that time with his replacement coffin, and also with the lid that did not match the coffin box.

Likewise, Smith felt that the mummification technique employed on “Seti II” was consistent with that of the early part of the latter dynasty rather than of the Nineteenth.
With the exception of so-called “Seti II,” Harris and Wente concluded that the remains of the consecutive Nineteenth Dynasty kings — Seti I, Rameses II and Merneptah (Rameses I’s mummy being missing) — were correctly labeled and represented a consistent father-to-son-to grandson relationship, based on their similar craniofacial morphologies.
Something so simple as the apparent correspondences of “portraits” of Thutmose IV and Amenhotep II to the mummies thought (by the ancient necropolis priests) to be theirs should give pause to any rush to judgment about the latter’s identities as suggested by apparent discrepancies in their craniofacial morphologies.

 OSETI II: Optical SETI and the Arecibo Myth
Example abound, dating back to the Cyclops report, which show microwave signals to be easily capable of trans-Galactic communications, whereas optical signals reputedly are not.
Could proponents of microwave SETI have perhaps overstated the capabilities of their systems, and unwittingly stifled the development of optical techniques in the process?
It traces the propagation of what the author calls the Arecibo Myth, and explores its impact upon public perceptions as to the validity of SETI activities in general, and optical SETI in particular.
