The Search for Heaven in Outer Space.
Earth is nothing but a lifeboat wandering in a cosmic sea. The expanding universe only reduces our odds of finding another habitable or inhabitable planet. If we do find other forms of intelligent life it may not be one interested in our forms of life or existence.
The human condition is best expressed by the evolutionary biologist, Edmund Wilson:
“Human beings are tiny centers of consciousness in the void, with only their frail bodies to keep out the overpowering nothing of infinity which presses in on them … little creatures growing and building against the annihilation of space and the inorganic world.”
Wilson, Edmund, The Twenties: From notebooks and diaries of the period. New York, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1975. Edited with introduction by Leon Edel. Page 99.
