This thread has gotten so silly. But I hope amusing and stimulating for most reading it, at least. : )
The reason I say silly is because passionate debates about what ET life would be like, how much ET life is out there, and whether or not they've
interacted with our planet really tend to dead end...because at the end of the day, it's like an ant trying to empathize with humans or even an animal
just a bit up the food chain from them - it's impossible! For all we know, the universe is TEEMING with life... we know that we've discovered traces
of life and potential for life ALREADY (without mastering space travel, we only just got into it) in our solar system ALONE, so for all we know
there's a wealth of alien species out there and maybe they're covertly here right now. Or maybe we're IT! Maybe we're the only living beings in the
galaxy. Either scenario is mind-blowing.
All I'll say is this - history WILL tell us that we humans got a ton wrong, as far as physics and space and time travel go. This is really a budding
field, as what used to be isolated to science fiction and imagination is for the first time being really tested in labs (think CERN, etc). We've
only been first-person to the moon!
That ANYONE thinks they've got anything in this realm figured out, or that ANYONE would rule out any
possibility at this point in time... is silly. Imagine away, that's what the Great Unknown is for. I seriously wouldn't be surprsied, though, if one
day everyone grows up with knowledge of other ET life in our solar system/universe and look back on today as infantile "remember when people thought
they were the only life in outer space? we're part of a galactic empire right now! haha, what were they thinking!" just as we make fun of those who
thought the Earth was flat. Our early EARTHLY explorers had no idea what more there was to discover, and in fact it wasn't so long ago (relatively, at
the grand cosmic scale) our geography was totally different - pangea.
It's almost a certainty that the craziest ideas today will be the standard ones of tomorrow.
That's all I have to say about this for now. : ) Continue....
