This is a plea for curiosity in the face of what could be beyond our ken to know — things whose origins could be other dimensions, other times, or other places in the universe. I am asking that we go from arguing about whether or not there are phenomena of mysterious origin, to looking for what might authenticate things as coming from elsewhere.
If we did find intelligent life it would be the biggest news ever to hit humanity. It’s being said that if Curiosity discovers microbial life on Mars, it would change everything. If finding microbial life would be so changeful, the mind boggles at how vitally, fundamentally, and radically impacting the discovery of intelligent life would be.
Copernicus and Galileo were the last to change everything. Monarchies gave way to democracies when Earth was no longer top dog in the cosmos. There’s more to be said about that and about how modern science came from having a shifted cosmic perspective. If readers can educate me, please help me flesh this out.
I see the discovery of other intelligent life seeping into the groundwater of reality and causing a sea change. It would bring the world into a dialogue. We would be one humanity, no sides, trying to figure out what to do in relation to “the other.” And it wouldn’t be one day’s, or one week’s, or one month’s news cycle; it would be forever.
Seeing the game-changer that discovering life would be, it would behoove everyone to cool their skepticism in favor of curiosity, where we examine all possibilities. That includes of course crop circles and UFOs, and also investigations of artifacts found on Earth that can’t be but are. The evidence for a different timeline for intelligent life is staggering. Caves, pyramids, city complexes, some underground and some underwater, all over the world, await examination. Here we are, floating in inconceivable vastness, the product of billions of years of evolution, and instead of looking into the richness of our origins for a greater sense of who we are, we square off against each other. It is insane.
Either technologies and tools were brought here from elsewhere, or we have not accounted for mass extinctions where advanced civilizations totally disappeared and life started from scratch each time, or something else altogether. We are in the realm of mythmaking, and we are in-between stories. But, a heroic spirit remains alive. It is in that spirit that I make this plea.
Placid times, where nobody wants to rock any prosperity boats are behind us in this century of violence. Lots of energy is scrambling for answers. So many good people are out there. How to unite us, to speak from the heart to impact the world? No need for laundry lists of how we squander our paradise. We know that human life is threatened. We’ve got our heads in the sand of this dualistic plane of reality. A changed underpinning, of ourselves as one, could put us in the best position to fix everything. There is no more important pursuit.
If you agree, think with me. How to get this plea to be heard? How to improve it? What to do?
