"...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.
