    Consider the immensity of "space" and if one thinks planet Earth is the only planet with life IMHO that would not show an understanding of life and would seem a bit pretentious and narrow-minded. Just my 2 cents.

    Absolutely spot on teddy

    I don't know how many of our posters are interested in cosmology but an old experiment (1997) that may be of interest questions some long held views please have a read of this twin-photon experiment

    I think this has or is to be checked with the Large Hadron Collider

    Thanks Colin, very interesting. I will have to re-read it to fully absorb it. I also want to re-visit Einsteins theory. Its been a long time.
    As far as the likelihood of other intelligent life. One is there any other life. ? Probably. Two is it intelligent, as we interpret the word. It is no use to us if it existed a billion years ago, as the very planet it was on may no longer exist, let alone any trace of it. One factor which is often ignored is that just because something can happen ( enough monkeys with typewriters may eventually write the works of Shakespeare) does not mean it actually will. The laws of possibility and probability are similar but do not guarantee anything.

    teddy, thanks for taking the time to have a look it is quite a long article but I found it fascinating, maybe not the normal fare for some of our posters but who knows?
    if you click on home it provides a wealth of other info, best for long winter nights eh, I copy and paste these articles to be read at my inclination and in a larger text,

    Thumbs down

    Teddy: Very well stated. Time is a factor that seems to be often ignored.

    Colin: Hmmmmmmmmm... Food for thought?

    Chasma Boreale, Mars


    Chasma Boreale, a long, flat-floored valley, cuts deep into Mars' north polar icecap. Its walls rise about 4,600 feet, or 1,400 meters, above the floor. Where the edge of the ice cap has retreated, sheets of sand are emerging that accumulated during earlier ice-free climatic cycles. Winds blowing off the ice have pushed loose sand into dunes and driven them down-canyon in a westward direction.

    That is an awesome picture, Colin. It looks like it could have been on earth instead of Mars. Things like this really make me wonder again about the inter-connectedness of all life, both earthly and extra-terrestial. {Yes, I do believe that somewhere in this vast and largely unexplored cosmos of ours other life forms do indeed exist. Whether or not they will ever be "discovered" in my short lifetime is of course a whole different matter.} The devil's always in the details, isn't it?
