I am a firm believer that life thrives throughout our universe, including intelligent life, but I sometimes wonder if our search for it isn't too
narrow in it's scope.
It is said that our planet lies in the "Goldilocks" zone of our solar system. The area that is not so close to the sun that it would cook us, yet
not so far from it that we would freeze. We lie in the area that's considered to be "Just Right."
Well, there are numerous theories out there that discuss the possible existence of an "Inner Earth" or "Hollow Earth" area which is habitable.
From the Admiral Byrd flight log to the numerous books written on the subject today, just google it and you'll see what I mean.
Deep underground dwellings, some which are ancient, are found all over this planet so we know that even humans have chosen to live underground at
times. More than likely due to unfavorable conditions on the surface at the time.
In more recent news, it now looks like the European Space Agency may be making an announcement in the near future regarding Phobos and new evidence
indicating that it may be hollow. Perhaps even of intelligent design.
I know that one of the reasons that intelligent life is considered to be very rare in the universe is due to the fact that planets which lie in the
"Goldilocks" zones of their solar systems are also very rare.
So I guess my real question is, Should we assume that intelligent life can only exist on the surface of planets? Is it possible that, contrary to
current belief, most planets may have habitable zones within their interiors?
If most planets lie outside of the "Goldilocks" zone of their solar system then maybe, just maybe, most life resides on the interior of these
Just as life here on earth migrates towards it's most preferable zone, so may life on other planets. I guess what I'm trying to say is that maybe
each planet contains it's own "Goldilocks" zone, some on their surfaces and some in their interiors and who's to say that intelligent life
couldn't evolve in the interior of a planet?
I only ask this question because I've noticed just how quickly NASA and others eliminate most newly discovered planets as having the potential to
bear intelligent life due to the fact that their surfaces wouldn't support it.
Intelligent life may be much closer than we think and it's just because we've limited our search that we've failed to find it. One day we'll
probably be looking back and laughing at ourselves, wondering how we could have missed this.
You know what they say, "even an idiot has enough sense to get out of the rain," and I believe that any other intelligent ET life form would as
