Found



Previously on: Outpost





It has been more than half a century since we began searching the heavens for intelligence, and we continue still. The truth is, they will never be found. Not because they don't want to, but because of our beastly nature.

I have always said that they - the visitors - are watching. The conspiracy theorist in me asserts that they have been here since our beginnings. But given our penchant for domination, of alienating the different among us, maybe, they found wisdom in leaving us in peace.

We are not ready for the universe.

"We could find alien life." Seth Shostak of the SETI Institute was quoted in a recent interview. "But politicians don't have the will."

So long as we - as a species - continue to destroy the planet, and as long as we cast extraterrestrials as invaders and manipulators of humanity in movies, the cosmos will remain silent, indifferent, and uncaring

- perhaps until the end of our time.

never too hard to believe that something is out there. and yeah, humans can be cruel, so cruel to be deserving of a whisper from the cosmos if you think of how much we disrespect our planet. just blabbing. hehehehe

The universe is infinite and it is still expanding. The fact that there are billions of galaxies and with billions of stars in them. and we exist so there just as to be someone else out there.

What about under the sea? Do you think that there are advanced societies in there? Because I personally think it's a strange reality that we know more about space than our own seas.

Our minds will open to the possibility, I think, once this planet is no longer fit for us to live in.
