I personally believe our galaxy is filled with life. Only the vastness of space makes life appear rare but as we advance technologically and become
more adept with exploring outside of our planet we will find that as travelling extreme distances becomes easier, alien life forms will show
themselves more and more frequently. I think that as we spread out into the universe if we remember what exploring Earth was like for our ancestors we
could really appreciate what we've got ahead of us.
I sometimes wonder what alien planets contain. There could be planetary paradises out there. There could be rivers of blood longer than the Amazon out
there. There could be countries on other planets that have populations in the trillions or quadrillions! Imagine the vast power an emperor of a
Jupiter size planet would have. Competition in a greater size planet like that would be fierce for certain.
I also believe that alien cultures for the greater part wouldn't veer too far off of what we are like ourselves. The same basic principles of
civilization and physical wellness would apply to any life form anywhere. Perhaps a few rare planets here and there would contain bizarre intelligent
life in forms that would repulse us and they would be near-impossible to understand if we tried to get in contact with them. Maybe there's a planet
with a semi-liquid-semi-gas nitrogen atmosphere and all living things would be poisonous for us and of a plasmatic sort. As one of my own personal
theories goes, if you can imagine it, it can be.
As for galactical travel there are no traffic signs, no rules of the road. Only what reality would limit us to. If traveling from star to star in an
inter-dimensional vehicle really is something we can do then the possibilities for exploration of our own galaxy far exceed what we can explore on the
surface of this planet. You could go on and on about this. It's only limited to your imagination.
