In Knowing that the universe is AT LEAST 14.some odd Billion light years ( bigger to what i know) then why do some still limit themselves to believing that we are alone?

I have wondered this for quite some time. My wife is very intereted to see what the voice of this group says on this matter!

We’re all living in our own boxistential reality of some kind. When we’re ready to allow ourselves to see beyond that, to grant ourselves permission to break the barriers of our self-imposed limitations; then we’ll see outside of that box, but not before. If you think about it, adamantly believing we’re alone in this vast universe is the epitome of arrogance and self importance :)

Some people cannot handle the truth. They need some higher authority to think for them:

To decide for them : "Can you handle the truth??"

Sometimes the truth can be painful or distressful. This is true in many areas of life.

And even just the thought of aliens confuse some.

And if aliens landed in a very very public way, many would have no idea as to how to react.

Others would simply have their 'way of thinking' or 'beliefs' validated and reinforced.

''...this planet would be an abandaned outpost, an experiment or a zoo.''

thank u so much for teh answer, i love it and tank you for taking your timne and haeert to answer this, also if u like the udeas of structured univers, peas read the posty i made . It is a part fo eth book i co authored, (opr typed lol) and it is abn entity that is greatly connected to my siource,, he explaines universal; structure

I dont know Rob,but after listening to Brian Cox on his recent series im even more staggered at the size and scope of creation and its creator.

When Cox talks about time,size and distance he doesnt talk in millions, its billions and trillions.The numbers just supercede what i can get my head around.

When he talked about the event horizon he just plain said that all scientific rules ,laws and theories just stop dead. What happens there could defy the imagination and the whole scope of scientifc knowledge.

When we add to that the possibility of different dimension within or without of this universe then the mind just boggles.

I really cant imagine there not being other life.It may not be life as we know it (startrek) it may be multi dimensional ,it may be entirely non physical.

Im glad i dont know,ive got an eternity to find out.

When someone accepts a new truth into their belief system they know they will have to restructure their whole way of thinking and they don't want to do that. People who thought the Earth was flat resisted the fact that the Earth is round.

Here's another short story of a grandmother who lifted a car to get her grandson out from under it. When the grandmother was interviewed about the actual lifting of the car she resisted. She knew that she lifted the car, but she still didn't want to allow the "event" into her knowing, because that would mean she would have to change everything she knows about life. Love is what lifted the car, and fear is what keeps things limited. This is the paradigm.

Love and Light

(24 Apr '11, 14:30) TReb Bor yit-NE

did i not say that believing is a self imposse limit. and that belief and faith are 2 different things. experience and enjoy.

(20 Sep '11, 02:36) white tiger

There are two major sources of influence for this kind of thinking I guess.

However, even if life is that rare, still it could have originated from someplace else and spread onto this planet, either

  • in a low-level form as micro-organisms travelling between the planets on meteors and comets as described by the Panspermia theory and nicely poetically visualised in this Pantera video,

  • or through an alien race that advanced enough to develop interstellar travel and spread quickly (exponential) through the cosmos, and this planet would be an abandaned outpost, an experiment or a zoo.

well life can exist in many form they are still discovering new specie on earth. imagine all the universe. yes life exist on other planets. but maybe the definition of life we have and believe in is something else on other worlds. experience and enjoy.

(20 Sep '11, 02:40) white tiger

I always believed that too, White Tiger, that life may exist differently than how we expect, but still exists.

not unlike the very young child whose as yet undeveloped capacities
limit his ability to perceive reality,
and as he grows does he go along with tradition or
begin to think for himself;
a combination of limited capabilities, ignorance and indifference to truth
