“Seeking out new life and new civilizations“, does ring a bell from my youth ! Cue the theremin !
Love the alien , ET , genre in art music & literature. Everything from the Drake equation to conspiracy theory. Project Blue Book, SETI, Stranger in a Strange Land , Carl Sagan’s Contact, Asimov , Jules Vernes , H.G Wells , etc., etc., and of course Star Wars segue Joseph Campbell. The forms and types are well ensconced in our collective modern psyche. Lots of fun to contemplate their multidimensional multimedia presence. The cosmos is becoming a much smaller place once quantified. They are here ! In our minds and thoughts.
The human mind is a wonderful place not always rational. Which I think is a good thing. “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
– Albert Einstein
My take on the phenomenon I get from Richards Feynman’s lesson on the scientific method. “I think from knowledge from the world around me that it’s more likely that the reports of flying saucers are the result of the known irrational characteristics of terrestrial intelligence than the unknown rational efforts of extraterrestrial intelligence.” That being said ufo’s are a wonderful trope and metaphor. So turn on your heart light , reach out and touch somebody’s hand. For it is in the metaphoric reach that iconic contact is made … with ET … with God …
May our Journeys always be extraterrestrial 👽 supraterrestrial in what ever way we wish to project them !!!!
