Kind of thinking “different” here lately, didn’t notice it until recently. I catch myself thinking, “I need a couple of twenties for gas.” … Or … “I need to drop by the bank for three or four twenties, I am almost out of gas.” Never did that before. Used to be I would just think …… I need to get some gasoline, now I find myself not so much thinking about the product itself, but HOW I AM GOING TO PURCHASE IT instead of filling up.
Anyone else, doing that?
Sitting here this morning, fresh cup of coffee and kind of listening to some tunes and staring at the river. If you don’t know what it is that I am talking about (which is a pretty safe bet, because most of the time, I have the very same problem) here is a picture of it. It comes from the NASA link on my page, over there to the right.
It is often mind boggling to me, when you take time out of your somewhat busy and hectic day to realize that there are 100 billion galaxies in our solar system (estimated). Each containing an average of 100 billion stars in each galaxie.
So the odds (in my opinion) are very good that we are not alone in all this, the existence of sentient ET’s is just a matter of math and logic. Back in ’69 when man first stepped on the moon, the excitement factor was somewhat justified, but finding others in the heavens, now that would be something to shout about eh?
So I guess I am running in some pretty good company this morning. Darwin who said that we all came from monkeys, Copernicus and Galileo who were not all that popular when they told everyone that the earth wasn’t all that flat, even in Kansas.
Last week the Vatican actually admitted that “extraterrestrial brothers and sisters” could very well be out there. So I am feeling better about the entire thing. I take a moment to contemplate it all, to stare off as Captain Kirk used to say … “Out There.” … And I forget about for a minute or two, high gas, war, people living on the ragged edge of life.
Perhaps someone is out there, and if this might be true, then I sure hope they can show us a better way of doing all this.
