It surely equates to intelligence, if you've ever gone through any science program (such as me with physics) - you can't be an idiot.
I would say the vast majority in the scientific community wouldn't say that things like "warp drives" aren't possible - I just highly doubt any have come to Earth, as there isn't enough evidence (bring on the flaming).

Sure it counts for something, baby steps.
Humans have a long way to go before we are able to visit the furthest reaches of our solar system let alone traverse the galaxy but it will happen some day.
However, billions of others (ETs) have “been there done that” millions of years ago. Every discovery we make believing it to be unique is not, everything has been done. A butterfly may think it is the first to break free from a cocoon spread its wings and fly but we know differently---same with us.

Anyone who claims "alien" life is 100 percent fact needs to consider their sources.
Well if you consider earth part of this universe and we are indeed part of this reality, I would suggest look right under your nose. No need to consider sources, the fact that we are alive and interacting with the world we live in is enough proof for me that there is "alien" life "out there 100% as it exist here. (logic)

sleeper, I've read some of your other threads (skimmed to be honest as you do tend to generate a huge amount of replies) and must admit I'm taken by your simple, laid back philosophy. I say simple, but not in a derogatory manner as I find your composed, commonsensical explanations refreshingly uncluttered. I consider myself an inteligent person yet have trouble coming to terms with the various intricacies of schools of philosophical thought. Sometimes, I feel it is a defense mechanism. My life is simple, and I like it that way, and I fully believe that if I allow myself to understand the likes of Neitzsche, Keirkegarde (sp) etc., then everything will change. I'm not sure I want that. Yet.
I'm under the impression, as you've previously hinted at being privy to certain information, and through answers to my own questions in other threads, that you have been through, or are still going through, a very personal experience regarding non terrestials.
What this experience may be, or who it may be in conjunction with is is a matter of the most delicious conjecture, as for some ridiculously nonsensical reason, I believe you. (If you have come forward with this information then forgive me, as I am unaware of that already happening).
It is clear this exposure has gifted you with a calm and rational approach to the human situation, a situation you may well view as frustrating being a bearer of such clear, enlightened understanding.
What I am attempting to say, somewhat clumsily, is this; is the human situation, this as yet missing ability to break "out of the egg", the same as my reluctance to allow cerebral change into my life?
Are we all guilty of being content with our spiritual lot?
And if so, is that what's holding us back, and what's more, how do we change?
Or, can we be changed?

Because humans can’t travel trillions of miles and visit other solar systems does not preclude others from being able to.
Humans can pick up insects very easily yet insects can’t pick up humans, get them to move and maybe run, yes.
ETs are a far more advanced version of humans
Humans have yet to hatch from this egg called earth yet many claim to know what inhabits this vastly incomprehensibly large universe.
