We do see E.T tho. Look at all the UFO reports, Mass UFO sightings.
I myself have seen a saucer and an alien. So i think that statement about them not being here is bunk.
I prefer to think that humans would rather deny their existance until the day they are landing on our roads and shooting tanks with lazers on live
Not going to happen.
Giving numbers to the planet and the galaxy sure is easy.
But kinda impossible to give an age for the Universe.
The funny this is the universe is not expanding.
It's only because of the distance of the objects moving relative to our position that makes it seems like galaxies are moving away from us. Well in
reality. Everything is moving... And well we move the distance at which we view from space is amplified by panaramic view.
As we move objects will appear to be moving at increasing speed away from us as light warps around our galaxy and planet.
Think of it like star wars, When they go light speed all the stars move away and behind the ship. They don't fly directly into patches of stars.
It's the same concept for our galaxy travelling in space. Besides, How can we even record expansion if we are located on an arm of a galaxy. Well
everything is being dragged along with it.
Sure as hell would look like objects are moving away from us when our galaxy is completing it's rotation.
Has anyone even considered the possibilty that a planet making one revolution around a galaxy would be considered a type of year of itself.
We don't know how long it takes for the Sol ( Our star) to Orbit around the galaxy anyways. So tracking all this movement and adding it to a computer
calculation would seem like the universe is indeed throwing all mass into greater emptyness.
Right now we should beable to see galaxies and parts of Deep space we couldn't see before, because of to many stars from the Milkyway blocking our
If you want to believe the universe ever had a begining, and we are placed directly in the ages of that begining as the first sentient life-forms.
But had that actually been the case i would totally agree with what you said about life having different time periods on planets.
But since i believe the Universe is Eternal. There is 100% probability of a species who has gained inter-galatic travel will find us. Expecially if
their species is trillions... quatrillions... googleplex years old ect.
The only requirement is surviving and remaining a nomatic colonist community.
Which is what we humans will have to do once Earth's purpose has been completed.
