My question has always been is this.
Why are other civilizations (if they exist per Drake's equation) concentrated on the Earth as believed by some? Are we a novelty? Are we one of the few life forms to evolve above micro-organisms? Are we a threat to the universe because we blew up an atomic bomb that only affected a small area in contrast to the Earth's overall surface and thus threaten a massive expanding universe in which we rate as a micro-dot?
Some state wormholes as fact and I thought it was an untestable theory at this time. Then there are dimension claims. What draws another civilization to this dimension and then finds this grain of sand nestled on an infinite beach?
Are aliens real? probably, odds are good for life in this vast universe.
Is the Earth the center of the universe? I doubt it. But there would have to be a very special reason for other civilizations to spend so much time observing us. With the universe calculated to be so immense (and some say infinite) why would aliens bypass or overlook all of the other space , time, and objects, out there to explore just to reach the Earth. Has other life had time to advance to manipulate space and time since the creation event began?
What makes us so special?
Are we the children of a creator and a must find for other civilizations?
Maybe we are just good entertainment.
