My cousin: I swear, it’s beautiful today, but it’s sweating balls.

Me *sitting on the couch in the corner*: Yeah, and my brother is sweating balls to make up for his lack of them.

*Everyone bursts out laughing*

My other cousin: lol! I’ve never heard that joke before!

My brother: yeah, yeah, and-

(I forgot what he said, but he had no idea what to say. A few minutes later, he said I had no honour and made up some fire nation bullshit)

The first cousin: I swear, *name* is smarter than all of us! She’s actually quiet!

(Which is the truth; they’re all a bunch of idiots)

This actually just happened a few minutes ago. And it’s glorious.

We live in the dumbest time in human history. Dumbest because we now have more scientific and medical knowledge than we’ve ever had before, yet our response and behavior to this pandemic is less wise than that of medieval peasants during the black plague. We don’t have the excuse of genuine ignorance that they had. We are far, FAR dumber, because we are willfully ignorant. I really hope there are no aliens watching us, because this is so damn embarrassing.

The Unicorn looked dreamily at Alice, and said ‘Talk, child.’

Alice could not help her lips curling up into a smile as she began: ‘Do you know, I always thought Unicorns were fabulous monsters, too! I never saw one alive before!’

‘Well, now that we have seen each other,’ said the Unicorn, ‘if you’ll believe in me, I’ll believe in you. Is that a bargain?’

‘Yes, if you like,’ said Alice.

“I started my life with a single absolute: that the world was mine to shape in the image of my highest values and never to be given up to a lesser standard, no matter how long or hard the struggle.”

But is the nature of civilization “speed”? Or is it “consideration”? Any animal can rush around a corral four times a day. Only a human being can consciously oblige himself to go slowly in order to consider whether he is doing the right thing, doing it the right way, or ought in fact to be doing something else… . Speed and efficiency are not in themselves signs of intelligence or capability or correctness.

Life Might Be Common In The Universe, But Intelligence Is Likely Rare

“All of this is what you might expect without any special statistical analysis. Our planet, from the earliest times, was just like any other: a lottery ticket in the cosmic sweepstakes for life and intelligent life. Venus and Mars, among other worlds in our Solar System, had their own tickets as well, and it’s eminently possible that life emerged on all three worlds early on; it certainly did on Earth. Only on our world did life sustain and thrive, however, and eventually give rise to an intelligent species and a technologically advanced civilization.

We cannot turn the clock back and see how things would have turned out, nor do we have technosignature data or a surefire Earth-like exoplanet to help us understand these cosmic likelihoods. However, a clever analysis can reveal that when it comes times to place your bets, bet on life’s emergence as a common occurrence as opposed to a rare one. For intelligence, however, the only information is a slight nudge in the rare direction. To learn anything more, we’ll need data that we don’t yet have.”

If you could turn back the clock to the earliest moments of our Solar System, clone it a million times, and wait the 4.5 billion years necessary to arrive at the present days, what would happen on all of those hypothetical Earths? How many of them would become home to life, versus how many of them would remain totally barren for all that time? How many of them, on the worlds where life arose, would eventually give rise to an intelligent, technologically advanced species and civilization?

Believe it or not, we can do a lot more than say, “we don’t know.” We know some things. And based on that, life is likely common. Intelligence? That’s another story.
