|ANYBODY ELSE OUT THERE??|
Con premisso, I'd like to present again the premise that life, in the 3 forms evolving on this planet, could very well be a mutation, a fluke, an amazing coincidence of the timing of one nucleated cell with one stroke of electricity from extreme lighting in one perfect little watery environment. It's either too chaotically organized or far too directed to be the natural result of a water molecule with a strong electrical charge, instigating this incredible mechanism of mitosis, no less miosis.

If this were, say, 1850 and two men on horseback were talking, think about this conversation:
"I heard they've come up with a faster way to get around", says one.
"Wow, faster horses", says the other.
These men are not thinking of airplanes or even cars, their only mode of ambulation is by horseback, so they're thinking "faster" means faster horses.
In this century when we think of inter-galactic life, we don't think of jellyfish, we imagine a humanoid or at the very least, a host body with appendages. Are we sure we'd even recognize intelligent life on another galactic body? Surely, we hypothesize, it would have awareness.

We need, I believe, to look at "life" in a more calculated, less emotional way, difficult as that is, for until humanity can accustom itself to the prospect if having only itself for company, we most certainly will continue reaching out, sending signals, listening, imagining, dreaming and....hoping hoping hoping.
Hope may spring eternal but who wants to live that long? Life is too, well - fickle!
Thank you and good night. I expect to change my mind by Wednesday.
