Monday's 'Comment of the Day': "On Fermi's Paradox"



"While all this conjecture may be entertaining, a few conclusions may be drawn: 1. If we are here.... and smart, chances are that others are here, and smarter! 2. Biology is a good starting block for intelligent life, but as we are now demonstrating, AI and future evolution wil be non-biological, and perhaps one day ethereal! 3. Unless you're a Borg, ultruism and morality seems to be an inherent quality of inteligence, even if we haven't displayed much of it yet! 4. Nothing, I repeat, nothing, is beyond possibility in this universe. (Remember, they were going to close the patent office about a hundred years ago because everything had been invented!) 5. No matter how far we advance, there is going to be a certain group that needs to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into the future!"
