Life “Out There” And Here
June 21, 2018

The kind of thing I love to learn about – because it is humbling and awe-inspiring, but which also begs the question Peter Gabriel asked: Why are we not more interested in the intelligent life beyond our own species that’s here on Earth? And if you think we are, you are technically right, but spiritually? The way we treat the rest of life on Earth, I would say our interest is largely exploitative, and that’s not the kind of interest I am talking about, because if it qualifies under the same heading as “interest”, life out there should be damn glad light years separate us – and we had better be glad life such as ours, out there, cannot reach us.
