Hey Bonez... When I begin to think of how far along we've come as a species in the last 1000 years and when I think of it in even shorter terms, like
last 50-100 years, it amazes me how we've gone from the Wright brothers to Stealth Bombers, or whatever top secret plane we have now. Same with
technologies like fiber optics, it really is amazing...
Now... I begin to think of other advanced species that may be located somewhere in the universe and think of them possibly being around for 15 million
years before us here or maybe even longer... Can you begin to imagine the type of technology a civilization could develop/create after that many
years... On Earth we've made tremendous technological strides in the last 100 years, now imagine our planet 10000 years from now or 1 million years
from now, it's honestly hard to fathom the types of technologies or advances we'd be seeing... well, that's if we don't destroy our planet first...
But man, all the possibilities, especially with these parts of the universe that could have "habitable zones/planets", possible life, and a
million/billion year head start on us...
Thinking about this type of stuff interests the hell out of me.
