"...Admittedly astronomers have had little to do with any of these developments." Bwaaaauuuuuhahahahaha! Sorry, had to let you know that got a laugh! Not thought about, I think: the Drake equation is a model only to give a person ballpark _speculations_ regarding who might be out there, but with every variable weighed and sifted for values of their own, variables that are themselves solutions to equations with wide scopes provoked by more variables still, eh? Any estimate for 'real' accuracy valueless? Seems Amir Aczel nailed it down in his _Probability_One_, I suspect, when he pointed out mathematically that there is, not- so-roughly, 'one' chance in 'one' that we are not alone. Put that together with the contention that we are our _own_ proof that we're not alone: we are a race of self-aware beings satisfying the formality of actual occurrence in the corporeal, once. That's enough, actually. What 'can,' 'will.' ...And not just once, see, but over and over in a manner seemingly fractal in nature, involving an all but infinite existential of space/time and surface area. We are such fatuously meager beasts bereft of all humility and unaware that the bigger fire illuminates greater darkness. Why then grow the fire at all? ...Because it's light where darkness was and a _mountain_ to climb... we need no other excuses. alienview.nul www.AlienView.net AVG Blog -- http://alienviewgroup.blogspot.com/ U F O M a g a z i n e -- www.ufomag.com Listen to 'Strange Days...
