So we may have a candidate for life around one of Saturn’s moons.

Looks like we will need to make sure we look closely at this moon for the new Star Control.

There are some very interesting articles and videos at just how terrifyingly it would be if it turns out life is pretty common. Because if that’s the case, where is everyone?

Will you detect a cell phone signal 100 light years away?

I have heard that we on Earth are an advanced civilization.

Maybe someday we will meet a real one.

Maybe it's a Stellaris situation, where everyone invariably wipes themselves out in a nuclear war.

Where is everyone?   My 'theory.'  The biological imperative that catapults a species to dominance on a planet tends to prioritize short term 'rewards' over long term concerns.    We make a Midden of the planet.  Like Bo's sidekick said to the uber-druid tree lady (lost Girl series - paraphrase):  We're humans - we drive SUVs, and we'll happily fry the planet if it means one last cheeseburger. "  The very same forces that make us (in groups) the ultimate Apex predators, doom us.   So, where are all the other species out there?  Regretting that last cheeseburger?

There could be a couple of reasons why we haven't detected ET yet. If ET can travel between systems it won't be by using what we consider conventional technologies. It wouldn't make any sense considering the distances involved. Our closest neighbor, the Centauri system, at 3.25 light years distant couldn't be done in less than 100,000 years so a decent propulsion system is kinda mandatory. The best we can do is drive a single particle to 99.7 +/- 0.3 % light speed using the LHC. Even if we could match it it would take a little more than three years to reach the Centauri system. So...

If ET is further out its gonna take years to go anywhere. An FTL drive is essential if you want to cut travel time. Why we haven't heard from anyone yet could be because they're still on their, they're at the same level we are or ET doesn't want us out there before we're ready. The latter would be IMO the best bet when you think of the state of our world today.

Within our solar system most likely it will be primitive life forms, microbes should be quite plentiful. Organic building blocks have already been found but nothing conclusive to date. Between Mars, Europa, Enceladus, (not including Titan. Who wants to live in a gas tank). Eventually they're gonna find something to prove life isn't exclusive to Earth.

Andromeda Galaxy: Distance to Earth: 2.537 million light years.

Don't worry there is life there.

on Jul 01, 2018

Not to worry though. Andromeda is quickly headed our way. In about 2 million years or so Andromeda and the Milky Way will be more than just kissing cousins.

Maybe because most just eat and shit and do not much else..Like all the other animals on Earth.

I am sure that we live in a multi verse and each one of us probably

exist in more than one universe at the same time.

There is life out there.

Take the worm hole in space to another universe and see the evidence.

It means that space is big.  No I mean big as in Really BIG.

I've heard-tell there's intelligent life on THIS planet....then I go to reddit and I'm not so sure....

I loved that show, such a pity that it ended.  Oh well, when I need another fix I do have the entire series on Blu-ray.

Sadly, there are people who boast intelligence, but when it comes down to day to day living they keep making the same old mistakes.... like going for that one last cheeseburger and improving nothing.

For mine, intelligence has little to do with academia and how much one knows, but rather how one manages lifes choices and making good/better decisions.  The most intelligent thing we could do on this planet is stop warring and start spending the trillions going on arms to actually improve life in general across the globe.  Sadly, though, that will never happen until mankind manages to overcome the 7 deadly sins.... greed being a prime motivator to war.

As for ET's not making official contact as yet.... we are not intelligent enough [see above paragraph] to welcome ET here.  Maybe when we stop behaving like primitives with tribal mentalities?

Here's another scenario. Perhaps there are other human cultures out there who look at Earth and wonder..."Of all the human cultures we know, Terrans (Earth humans) are the only ones who prey upon themselves."

The most advanced life I have seen on earth is the lizard.

They have armor plating so bugs can't bite. They sun bathe 

and are their own bait for the bugs that fly by that they eat.

They do some push ups to stay in shape and don't work them selves to death.

If it gets cold they sleep until it is time to sun bathe again.

Here is another universe for the people on demigod.
