There’s hardly a topic more hotly debated or kept more in the closet than life on other planets. Much like other things kept in the closet, we wonder. Are they out there? Are they here? Have they always been here? Are you one of them?
How do the little green men of your particular fact or fantasy reality figure into the grand scheme of things? Does having a technology bordering or surpassing magic mean that you can’t believe in the Divine? Or would living together as a society long enough to develop such a cool bag of tricks and understanding of technology even be possible without a comparable spiritual connection as well?
Maybe what is missing in the E.T. equation, in all those monster movies with fleets invading from the great beyond to steal our precious bodily fluids or whatever, is the very human element. The fact that no society would ever survive the age we’re in now if we didn’t manage to somehow think beyond ourselves and find a higher connection that had nothing to do with technology, resources, and war.
It’s easy enough to blow yourself up with a nuke, much less a Solian Death Ray. You’d think that in order to get past where we are today, we’d have to figure it it’s not all about me me me.
Take the subject as you will but here will be a place to discuss the very real ramifications that statistically speaking life DOES exist out there and just what may happen if it were to come here?
