I have a very particular

No, not 1996 Travolta...

This is THE Phenomenon. they say, the truth is out there...

Probably boils down to more of a 'Lounge' question: Do you believe we're alone in the universe?

Despite some people's claims to the contrary, 5 lbs. is actually different than 12 lbs.
It's never simple/easy.

I remember being fascinated with this topic when I was a student. As I got older not so much. But, those military "tic tac" videos are interesting. Now I admit at the end of those videos when the pilots say it just streaked out of sight at incredible speed it looks like the camera swung off of the target. What are the possibilities with those videos? BTW if you get roped into a chick flick with your significant other I highly recommend the 1996 version. Good flick.

I like the line.. "If not, it's an awful waste of space."

Of course our linear obsessed brains have problems with the "distance".

Sliced bread, the greatest thing since the 1911.

If life exists elsewhere in the void, there had better be wormholes or the like to circumvent the restrictions placed on us by the universal speed limit, aka- speed of light. Otherwise, it is highly unlikely we will ever meet them due to the immensely vast distances between galaxies, not to mention stars within our own Milky Way.

And there is the possibility that even in the vastness of our universe with all its potential places to harbor life, we may be the only cosmic accident that led to life. We may be truly alone.

Based on recent exoplanet discoveries, AI computer models assume that one-fifth of all stars have habitable planets in orbit around them. This leads them to conclude that there should be other advanced technological civilization out there, unless the chance for developing such a civilization on a habitable planet in the observable universe is less than 1 in 1024 (a 1 with 24 zeros!). For our own Milky Way galaxy, the odds of being the only technologically advanced civilization are 1 in 60 billion. Thus, it’s very likely that other intelligent, technologically advanced species evolved before us. Even if only one in every million stars hosts a technologically advanced species today, that would still yield a total of about 300,000 such civilizations in the whole galaxy.
