Legal Rights of ETs
The Golden Rule, Haley observed, is starkly anthropocentric. It promotes as a standard of ethical behavior the subjective needs and wishes of humans. In his paper ‘Space Law and Metalaw – A Synoptic View,” he pointed out that to treat other sentient creatures as we would desire to be treated might well mean their destruction. There is no equitable or ethical basis by which we may be allowed to impose our values on ETs. Instead, we must find out how they wish and require us to treat them.

Haley framed the Great Rule of Metalaw in a deceptively simple form: Do unto others as they would have you do unto them. This is that only way to ensure justice for beings that are “scarcely imaginable.” Absolute equity is the only principle of the laws of mankind that we should permit ourselves to project into our considerations of intelligent extraterrestrial life forms. The Great Rule preserves this principle, by granting individual sovereignty to each sentient race in the cosmos.

Linux error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory - Stack Overflow
Your library is a dynamic library. You need to tell the operating system where it can locate it at runtime.

To do so, we will need to do those easy steps:

(1 ) Find where the library is placed if you don't know it.

sudo find / -name the_name_of_the_file.so

(2) Check for the existence of the dynamic library path environment variable(LD_LIBRARY_PATH)


if there is nothing to be displayed, add a default path value (or not if you wish to)

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib

(3) We add the desire path, export it and try the application.

Note that the path should be the directory where the path.so.something is. So if path.so.something is in /my_library/path.so.something it should be :

$ ./my_app
