Actually I do have one more thing to add, the following is from my blog, its not 100% mathematically sound, but it is a general example of how vast
our Universe is and how possible ET Life is:
There is an estimated 200-400 Billion Stars right here in our own Milky Way Galaxy. So let us use these numbers for our first round of Mathematical
Let’s say that only 1% of these, let’s split the difference, 300 Billion Stars have planets. We are left with 3 Billion Candidate Stars which
(potentially) have Planets. Let’s keep going!
Say only 1% of these 3 Billion Stars that have Planets, have the Planets in the so-called Goldi-locks zone (the area where a Planet is neither too hot
nor too cold and able to support life, as far as we know). We are left with 30 Million Stars that have Planets capable of producing life. On we
Going with tradition, let’s say only 1% of these 30 Million Stars that have Planets capable of maintaining life actually has life! We are now left
with 300,000 Stars that contain Planets with some type of life. Keep going until the proverbial # hits the fan(atics).
Now let’s say 1% of these 300,000 Stars that have Planets which holds life, has Intelligent Life. We are left with 3,000 Stars that have Planets
which hold Intelligent Life. This is life like you and me, they are self aware, maybe a little more or a little less technologically advanced than us,
but about the same.
This and of itself is f--king amazing, there are, theoretically, 3,000 other Intelligent Civilizations In Our Own Milky Way Galaxy ALONE!!!!
Let’s go even further!
1% of the 3,000 Stars which has Planets which hold Intelligent Life that possess the ability for Interstellar Travel (Traveling to and from Stars,
hundreds or thousands of Light Years in distance) is 30.
There are probably 30 Different Alien Species CAPABLE of visiting Earth (Give or take). This is actually in correlation with numerous Abductee reports
that there are currently around 60 different Alien Civilizations who have contacted and visited Earth. These claims can not be backed by science of
course, but when you read the numbers, it doesn’t seem all that far-fetched, does it?
And this is just a general ‘what if’. There could be more, there could be less, but what I want you to take away from all of this, is that These
Numbers Are From Our Own Milky Way Galaxy, NOT The Entire Universe!
Let’s play Mathematical Alien Roulette on a Universal scale.
Stars (Total): 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (10 Sextillion)
Stars w/Planets (1%): 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (1 Sextillion)
Stars w/Planets in the Goldi-locks Zone (1%): 100,000,000,000,000,000,000 (100 Quintillion)
Stars w/Planets in the GL Zone w/Life (1%): 10,000,000,000,000,000,000 (10 Quintillion)
Stars w/Planets in the GL Zone w/Intelligent Life (1%): 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (1 Quintillion)
Stars w/Planets in the GL Zone w/Intelligent Life Capable of Interstellar Travel (1%): 100,000,000,000,000,000 (100 Quadrillion)
That is 100 QUADRILLION Different Advanced Civilizations that could be able to traverse the Universe like we can travel our globe. The thought alone
is mind numbing and I haven’t even included the theoretical Habitable Moons that belong to Planets which are outside of the GL Zone!
Yet we sit here on our small blue rock, and say, “We are all alone in the Universe.” And fight amongst ourselves, seeing which one of us can drive
the other to extinction; while, simultaneously, raping and pillaging our Planet.
It is high time we take our heads out of the dirt and look up and marvel at what we have only just begun to understand.
