    Can our minds really imagine nothing as in beyond the universe which is expanding alway in evry direction. And beyond that, Nothing. We have no reference for nothing because there is alway Something outside of nothing in our three demential world. Scientist tell use that every star has planets and the stars are countless. Can we really imagine countless? Lastly we are told there must be life because there are so many stars!
    But what if we Are the only life. What if we are the only perfect match whereby all the elements along with perfect distance from the sun and a hugh outer planet which sucked in and absorbed countless meteors came together to support this carbon entity we call life. Imagine how truly fragile our life is viruses, molds, insect, poisons, heat, cold, radiation all have to be perfect for life to exist.
    Imagine that

    Nuff said. To think we are alone is the crown jewel of narcissism IMHO.
    Background apps are hiding for good reason. Seek them out, close them. The world will be a better place.

    Was it Carl Sagan who said that whether we are alone or not, either thought is fascinating. I tend to agree with that sentiment.

    Yes quite the diplomat he is!

    I hardily agree....or is that heartily? *wink*

    Well either way the point of this post Is to suggest that we are in fact alone. That there are so many elements that has to come together at just the right proportion to allow life. Therefore life is much more precious than most people appreciate. I knew that when I posted this on an iPad forum the vast majority would be tech types and dump the thought. Therefore life on the sun can be imagined right. But the idea still remains we can be alone right?

    Not so much the Sun or anywhere else in this Solar System, but in other systems containing planets in the "Goldilocks zone".

    I'm more interested in life as we know it, rather than claims that a rock is alive, but in a way that I can't understand. That does not satisfy my curiosity.

    We're alone not because there's no intelligent life elsewhere, but because of our inability to fling ourselves across the cosmos.
    With no practical means of interstellar transportation, we're marooned in our solar system.
