Re: Contact With Alien Civilization By 2031
Was it Fred Hoyle who said that the universe was not just queerer than we imagine, it's queerer than we can imagine?
I would suspect there may very well have been, or possibly may still be, civilizations that have mastered warping space and time. To them we'd be ants, maybe even microbes. Why bother hassling us?
BTW, no, I don't think anybody has been by just yet to say hi.
Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. -Tennyson, Ulysses
