I can't come down, it's plain to see.

Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

Like everything humans do - science started out as a great thing - but over the years it has become homogenized, conformed for profit, and lacks the imagination to connect the dots. Todays science is full of arrogant assumptions leading us away from understanding ourselves, and the universe around us.
if i had to choose between science and religion - i would always choose science.
if i had to choose between science and imagination - i will always choose imagination.

to me the real issue is the human addiction of needing answers - answer addiction
it's great to ask questions about everything, but it is even greater not to need the answers.
more often than not humans settle on answers that they can comprehend, and then accept those answers as "truth"
more ofter than not those answers are not the "truth", they are just what we could comprehend at the time, and as a by-product the questions stopped getting asked to come to true understanding.

thousands of years ago people thought things that we know now are no longer true. example - the earth is flat.
thousands of years from now people will think things that make what we think today no longer true.
take it all in stride - life is an adventure !

...and what is everybody's definition of "intelligent life " ?
are atoms intelligent ? is DNA intelligent ? are plants intelligent ?
Is intelligence in the blueprint or the beholder ?
iLove,

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” Albert Einstein

this coming from a scientist! not all science is bad...not all scientists are arrogant

But, he was more than just a scientist, he was a great thinker. A trait of genius, sometimes lost in the science.

And I'll tell you something, too, that's starting to annoy me about UFOs: the fact that they cross galaxies or universes to visit us, and always end up in places like … Fyffe fucking Alabama. Maybe these aren't super-intelligent beings, you know what I mean?
