In existence does not mean discoverable. Only arrogance assumes this is the case. Humans exist in a fleeting awareness, infinitesimal in the scheme of
things. Humans, because of evolution have become able to ask questions, make assumptions. These questions and assumptions only mirror data that humans
are able to deal with. to concoct fanciful scenarios around and provide supposed omnipotence. Consider the extent to which religious faiths claim
knowledge, how imagination makes extra-terrestials almost human but not quite. Perhaps, it is not that what humans are yearning to discover is out
there but just out of reach for now,... but that what humans are yearning to discover is not discoverable at all by them. Where does this leave
humanity? Cast adrift? In danger of being destroyed by something that fits no criteria for knowledge nor belief? Of course, to give this latter
statement something more substantive than mere conjecture, there has to be what doesn't fit becoming known unequivocally. Those that find themselves
trying to examine something of this sort invariably find that society, learned and otherwise, regards them as kooky. Why? Because there's safety in
the way things are and expected to be. It's kept this way deliberately by various means. For example, humans expecting to go off to 'heaven'
(laugh). Humanity carrying on developing and testing atomic weapons without any idea as to what the ramifications might really entail. Really meaning,
having no idea what else there 'might' be. And that it 'might' not (with appeal to human abilities) like them, 'might' hate them?
