ARE THERE EXTRA TERRESTIALS IN THE UNIVERSE
THE ARTICLE WRITTEN BY MR VEXEN CRABTREE IS SUPERB & HIGHLY IMAGINATIVE.
I Should really call him a mini astro physicist in the budding.
I agree to most of his views & wish to add some of my views on the subject.
I do not think that oxygen/hydrogen/carbon are essential for life formation
elsewhere in the universe. As per the conditions prevailing on earth planet
coupled with our sun energy/sattelite - these factors have been responsible.
Elsewhere -there could be other gases/layers(like ozone out here)& other life giving properties which may have combined to produce life.
The life forms will be completely different from ours & the basic structure of the human system may be totally different & advanced even.
In some planets -they may be supported by 2 suns & there could be no darkness.
However-even if most complicated & intelligent life does exist,they too will not be able to establish a contact medium with other existing planets due to the position of their planet in the map of universe.
However there may be mini planets with life medium around some other planets & they may have established contacts with them,if distance is admissible.(like from earth to moon etc etc)
Similarly the equipments used on earth for capturing radio frequencies may
not necessarily catch the signals beamed by extra terrestials. we have to review other options & create new technologies.
Flying saucers are a hoax according to me. Next time if a flying saucer is seen -better to bring it down so that all mysteries will be solved.
The earth is a speck of sand in the universe & blessed with a few life giving properties like favourable climate,air,water etc.its not necessary to make these as universal parameters-there could exist millions of other life giving properties on whom we have no knowledge whatsoever.
