Back to my rant on reactionary headlines. Now I’m seeing news that some videos from quite a few years ago have been leaked from Navy archives, videos that the Navy says are “real”. They show unidentified objects that have never been explained. So now aliens exist and are among us according to the headlines.
Personally I’m not willing to say that we are the only life in the universe. As Matthew McConaughey says in the movie, Contact
However, I’m pretty sure that if there is other life in the universe, the human race doesn’t have it within itself to RECOGNIZE that life. I think that our definition of life is too small. Even our definition of life is based on what we currently believe to be life: “the condition that distinguishes animals and plants form inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity and continual change preceding death.”
I’m also pretty sure that any kind of life/civilization that can get to Earth is/will be way more advanced than we can imagine. So I’m not really concerned that the Navy video is really aliens – if aliens are here, they are advanced enough to keep themselves hidden from us. For all we know, aliens do walk among us and we’ll probably never figure it out?
What place in the universe would you like to visit?
