That's because data x instinct will just get you a meal (unless it's a trap); whereas data x logic will get you the truth (eventually - if you get enough data). So for long-term survival we need logic. Sadly we don't yet use it much, because the results are too scary for primitives like us. Why? Take a look at technological advances in this generation, then multiply those (with incremental accelaration) by a thousand times. That only takes you a few millenia ahead but even so the possible advances are way beyond our present comprehension or even our imagination. Therefore logic says about half the intelligences in the universe have technology we'd think of as weird, paranormal or sheer magic, and which are totally undetectable by us - because we have a mere couple of centuries of 'technology' but half the universe (roughly, on average) is millions or billions of years ahead of us. By logic, given the size and age of the universe, those technologies are being used here and now. Because, as AR Wallace said, 'once a threshold of intelligence is reached different rules apply' (and there are probably several such thresholds). As we've seen on Earth, crossing one threshold meant exponential increase of populations, of transportation methods + speeds, and of interests + studies (back to that need for 'data x logic'). Step-by-step logic forces us to face the fact that we are (probably) all being observed, maybe all of the time. And that many of the observers are also being observed in their turn. Nb that conclusion doesn't consider time-travel, mainly because I don't believe it's possible - but might be wrong. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
